Boycotting people and destroying their careers seems to be a Zionist specialty. In this interview we discuss Gareth Porter's Zionist-style boycott that prevented Mark Glenn from participating in the Tehran Resistance Conference last month. (Trevor wrote a very lively article entitled The Book of Gareth: Why Persians Should Never Sleep With Jewish Whores.) We also discuss the Trevor's friend Gilad Atzmon's views on Jewish identity politics, and whether the real source of the "chosenness" and "Esther" problems Gilad analyzes is religion (Trevor) or post-religious nationalism (yours truly).
