That's only true to someone who decides to make that distinction. nt
Jewish can mean of the Jewish faith, but also, of the race of Jews. David Baddiel describes himself as a Jew, he is also not religious
During WW2, Jews werent persecuted for their religious beliefs. It was the race of Jews that were subject to genocide.
I could be wrong but thats my potentially limited understanding
In the case of the Jews the two things appear to be virtually interchangeable. Historically, each has been a cause and consequence of the other.
The tendency is to conflate islamophobia as racism is false, though. Islam is a belief system, not a race. You can object to a Muslimís views without seeming to denigrate his race. That appears to be much harder with Jews.
and when is racism really religious bigotry?
