CDM = ‘consensus decision making’ – ftp

[Imc-uk-features] From Gilad Atzmon on the debate you are having

Quoting mish :

I also dislike the fine lines in the terminology Atzmon uses. Using
“Jewish” as the term (or “Jewish political identity”) is not going to be
clear in general, and does lead to being quoted by anti-semites, not to
mention playing into the hands of the pro-israeli government lobby being
able to shout “anti-semite”.

I’m really unclear about what you’re getting at here. Is this reference to the
email, or the article. Can you suggest a term for discussing “Jewish political
identity” that would be acceptable to “the pro-israeli government lobby”
(surely there are people who are loyal to Israel, but not the Israeli
government eg Likudniks?), and not picked up on by anti-semites?

On the subject of FTP’s block, my understanding is that if a block is
made then all sides should make an effort to find a position that all
can agree on. I think it would be very useful for FTP and yoss to meet
and discuss these issues.

Well, it would be useful to see the form of CDM that IMC has consensed upon –
is it documented anywhere?

I personally think it would be easier to start the process by email, and then
to look at meeting to clarify any issues where we seem to be stuck – because the
whole issue is so sensitive, its useful to be able to use reference material,
and once we are clear on any sticking points, then a meet-up to discuss those
makes more sense to me.

I am struggling to see how this can be consensed upon without participants
having some knowledge of the issues that surround the usage of the terms
“anti-semitism”, and the “new anti-semitism”.

Ho hum
