I know you didn't mean it quite the way it sounds, Josh, but
this WASP is compelled to make this point: any decent non-Jew is
also offended by anti-Semitic poison.  If one has to be Jewish
to judge anti-Semitism utterly unacceptable, then this world is
in even worse shape than it already looks to be.

Anti-Semitism has always lurked on the fringes of the saucer
movement - it shows up, for example, in some early contactee
literature and, later, in the Dark Side movement that flourished
a decade or two ago - and nobody should be doing anything to
encourage it.  And that includes visiting websites where it's
featured, even if coupled with pro forma disavowals.
