Can Anti-Semitism be Addressed At All?

When US Secretary of State Blinken visited Israel recently and appeared with Israeli president Reuven Rivlin, there was a lot of talk of anti-semitism.

The racial, demographic effect on the population that this policy will have is a sign of sensible policy. An ancestral policy is also one which is more relevant to social concerns anyway. A population needs to have ancestry in common, not necessarily be racially pure. But if its original discriminatory policy should ever be relaxed, and members of a previously-oppressed group should hold public office, it should be acknowledged without fanfare, as a proof that the previous discriminatory policy is now in the past.
