Anti-Israel and/or Anti-Semitic?

When being anti-Israel is anti-Semitic
by Bernard Pinsky
There has been much discussion and finger pointing about criticism
of Israel, its actions and its policies, and Israel's defenders'
claims that much of the criticism is based on anti-Semitism. Critics
of Israel say they cannot speak out for fear of being labeled anti- Semitic. Defenders of Israel are concerned that anti-Semitism is the
basis for the criticism in many cases. It is therefore important to
know when in fact anti-Israel rhetoric is founded in, results from
or itself creates anti-Semitism.
