I don't entirely agree with any of the writers on this list--or, I daresay,
anywhere else--on everything relating to Israel, Palestinians, Jews, the
Holocaust, etc.; but I wish to express *much* appreciation for Jeff
Blankfort's wonderful characterization of those organizations "pimping off"
the Holocaust. Organizations not solely Jewish, let me add; there seems to be
a "tolerance" establishment sucking off any noted victims of racism.
Seriously, is this just part of what happens to NGOs/nonprofits in the cap.
economy? I think of these interlocking directorates of "boards"--of what is
happening with the Pacifica stations, or where I work. It is interesting
that working for nonprofits/NGOs in this social structure can teach you the
same lessons about class warfare that working for corporations can. --I say
this as someone who in the sixties became active first in the peace movement
and whose sense of economic politics has come more of experience than from
discussions of theory.--
