Lincoln as Jewish is very silly, and unsupported by any evidence. But even more ridiculous is the author's assertion that John Wilkes Booth was of Jewish descent. Really? Based on what source? The Forward has been falling down on fact-checking lately, it would be nice if the editors were a bit more vigilant.

Nice article detailing the idiocies of FBI surveillance of anyone perceived as different--Eddie Cantor, really! But why was Brecht included among the otherwise Jewish victims? He had no Jewish ancestry, was an atheist, and actually a proud Communist, so a valid target in those red-hating days.

Great, they're turning out editions of medieval commentaries on ancient religious texts. Of course, there is no actual modern academic scholarship involved. And the poor yeshiva students are taught nothing to prepare them for any gainful profession or trade--a shande. They are a cult because they enforce rigid adherence to authority, punish individual thought, and excommunicate anyone who differs with their rigid and archaic beliefs.

Bardon, "whiteness" is a social construction; a century ago neither Jews, Greeks, Italians or Irish were considered truly "white" by the WASPs who were ascendent at the time--only with social mobility was whiteness conferred upon them. To this day, there are many in the South and elsewhere who don't regard Jews as white. All of this racial stuff is utter nonsense biologically, but there it is.
