There is a big difference between being called an anti-semite and actually being an anti-semite. Nearly impossible to be 100% pro-American (what is good for America) and not get labelled an anti-semite. The quality of character assassination is twice cursed. It curses him who is character-assassinated and double curses him that does the name calling. (not quite as eloquent as Portia)
Uri Avnery, well known Jewish Israeli journalist and former member of the Knesset:
“Many good people, who feel no hatred at all towards the Jews, but who detest the persecution of the Palestinians, are now called anti-Semites. Thus the sting is taken out of this word, giving it something approaching
respectability…. Not only does Israel not protect Jews from anti-Semitism, but quite to the contrary – Israel manufactures and exports it around the world.”
Arabs are semites; Israelis are not. The majority of Israelis came from Europe, which is why they are mainly fair-skinned, unlike their Arab counterparts, whom are darker and have Semitic features. Secondly, being anti-Zionist is not the same as being anti-Semitic.
