Ilan Pappe and Anti-Semitism

Ilan Pappe's lecture on the nakba carries with it a certain gravity that is worthy of consideration.  However, in this video, the post-production editor decided to insert the subtitle 'JEWISH HISTORIAN'.  This is what is generally called 'too easy', except it is also demeaning to Pappe, in that it sullies his cause.  This utilization of the Palestinian cause by Westerners who fail to recognize their own philo-Semitism is illustrated by these subtitles.
