Text topic: Critiques
Text author: Александар Прњат
In his text with a cynical title ‘A contribution to the critique of antisemitism’, Zoran Kinđić actually tries to defend classic anti-semitic attitudes. He accuses me of adopting the ideology of political correctness, claiming that my understanding of anti-semitism is too broad and that animosity and hatred toward the Jews are not present in his texts. However, he also asserts that the majority of Jewish people have agreed on the crucifixion of Jesus. He demanded that I should provide the argument that will prove that his attitudes are self-evidently anti-semitic and presented the arguments that were supposed to demonstrate the contradiction between my belief that Jesus from Nazareth is the Messiah and my critique of the christian anti-semitism. After I have provided the demanded argument, he reprimands in his next text with a title ‘On incorrectness of the exponent of political correctness’ that I have focused solely on providing the arguments that his attitudes are anti-semitic and that I have not considered his critique of my position. In this way, Kinđić supposes, all his arguments are practically justified. He has also claimed that I have no right to consider them afterwards. However, in this paper I do precisely that. I demonstrate that his arguments on the contradiction of my position do not prove anything, because in the final instance, they are based on his own opinion. The claim that I have no right to analyze them, I denote as the rejection of the pursuit of truth.
