Does Criticism of Israel lead to Anti Semitism?


My fellow blogger Mark Elf
  • posted this today. I agree with the thrust of his post - namely that anti Semitism should not stop legitimate criticism of the Israeli State, or it's activities.

    Nonetheless I would point out that the Palestinian issue can be used by some people as an excuse for their own anti semitism. I have encountered this in the past from a range of people, and I believe so has Mark. The self hater Gilead Atzmon
  • most strongly gives weight to the lie that criticism of Zionism is anti semitism, to use one famous example.

    you can't trust anything hymie elfstein says. and when you say you enjoyed the 'thrust' of it, i wonder if you were thinking entirely about the article?
