Is There Movement on the Jewish Left?

Joel Kotkin has written an interesting op-ed in today's Orange County Register outlining why American Jews may be becoming increasingly alienated from the left. One reason I chose to cross-post it is his mention of anti-Semitism on University of California campuses, a subject with which I am very familiar.

"The shift toward the Right could also be accelerated by events on America’s college campuses. Anti-Semitism on American college campuses, including those of the University of California, has become ever more evident".

The sheer diversity and fragmentation of the Jewish community defies any solid predictions as to where they may drift politically. I can only hope that Kotkin has seen something here.
