I am sad to report that Norman Geras, political philosopher and writer of normblog, died this morning.
He wrote with clarity, courage and commitment about contemporary antisemitism. He wrote about lots of other things too.
The most fitting tribute I can think of is to link to things that he wrote:
On Alibi Antisemitism – major piece in fathom. (Jan 2013)
On Jon Pike’s resignation from UCU. (June 2009)
On Antony Lerman and the ‘one state solution’. (April 2009)
On Seaumas Milne’s apologetics for Ahmadinejad. (April 2009)
On the Israel-Nazi comparison. (April 2009)
On accusations made against Israel of war crimes. (Feb 2009)
Why a boycott would be antisemitic (in response to Martin Shaw). (Sep 2008) More on Martin Shaw. (September 2008) And more still on Shaw (Oct 2008).
On resigning from UCU. (July 2008)
On Tony Judt. (Feb 2008)
On Norman Finkelstein and academic freedom. (June 2007)
On Steven Rose. (June 2006)
On singling out Israel. (June 2005)
