How an intolerant teenage environmental scold now sailing to America is helping transform the left while attacking democracy and the global economy.
Jonathan S. TobinNow on her way to #America via sailboat, what the collective media swoon for @GretaThunberg 's brand of angry, intolerant children promoting extreme #environmentalist solutions to #climatechange means for #democracy. I explain in the @FDRLST.
His opponents argue that even if he is friendly to Jewish interests, Jewish values mandate that he be opposed. But those assumptions need to be questioned.

Downplaying the role of Muslim immigrants distorts the truth.
Jonathan S. TobinBlaming the surge of #European #antisemitism on #populists makes sense to liberals who fear the right. But the main source of anti-#Jewish violence comes from #Muslim immigrants. I explain in @NRO.
