Chapter One situates this entanglement in competing post-Holocaust discourses of racial expertise and Cold War geopolitics. It provides a genealogy of the 1975 United Nations resolution 3379, condemning Zionism as a form of racism. Key are the scholar-activists of the PLO’s Palestine Research Center (PRC) and U.S. state agents like Daniel Patrick Moynihan articulating Cold War American exceptions.

Keywords:   Black-Arab connections, Palestine solidarity, Racial liberalism, Holocaust memory, Black freedom struggles, Arab American activism, OrientalismAmerican Jews, Women of Color Feminisms, Anti-semitism
