Norman Geras on accusations made against Israel of war crimes

Geras writes about the ways in which accusations were made against Israel during the Gaza war which he concludes by making a connection with antisemitism.

“In the outpouring of hatred towards Israel today, it scarcely matters what part of it is impelled by a pre-existing hostility towards Jews as such and what part by a groundless feeling that the Jewish state is especially vicious among the nations of the world and to be obsessed about accordingly. Both are forms of anti-Semitism. The old poison is once again among us.”
