Anybody who dares to criticise israel is accused of antisemitism

Jim has an interesting post on Shiraz Socialist.

Jim recalls an all too familiar conversation that he had with David Hirsh :

I said something like, “of course there are some people who will accuse anyone who criticises Israel of anti-semitism.” Dave immediately asked me, “Who?; when was the last time you heard anyone denounce criticism of Israel as anti-semitism?” I had to admit that I never had – but everyone I knew said they had, so I assumed that I had simply led a sheltered life.

    The point is that if 100% of what one has to say is heaping scorn upon everything that Israel has ever done, not done, said, implied and there is never any attempt to present anything in the way of balanced information or debate then yes that is antisemitism. That’s what the definition of bigotry IS.
