While disclosing that he is “Jewish and an ardent Zionist”  Newton TAB Editor Andy Levin adds his voice to those who were “terribly upset” by Charles Jacobs’ and allies’ behavior at last week‘s forum.

… they angered many residents, Jews and non-Jews alike, and turned what was supposed to have been a unifying event into a confrontation. Now, a week later, we are no closer to understanding why there has been an apparent spate of anti-Semitic graffiti by students, or even determining whether the Arab-Israeli conflict could be more fairly presented in the high schools.

…To accuse city officials of downplaying anti-Semitism, as some in attendance did, was incredibly selfish. Hissing the black woman whose son was called the “N” word…. well, that was the lowest point of the evening.
