Israelis, Palestinians, and Anti-Semitism

A couple of days ago I received an e-mail from a pal  about his being slimed as an “anti-semite” because he protested the Israeli army’s mass murder of children in Gaza.

Here are two simple questions: The Israelis are semites. The Palestinians are semites. How can the murder of one by the other consist of anti-semitism? And how can pointing this out be anti-semitism?

The extreme-right, Israel-uber-alles apologists who control the U.S. media ignore these questions. We need to ask them.

  1. I’m not sure how or why so many people equate criticism of a government with hating all people from an ethnic background.
