A comment by As’ad Abukhalil on Anti-Semitism and Israel

Posted by uscsjp on January 31, 2007

Opposing Israel’s settlement of the West Bank or treatment of Palestinians “is, in itself, not anti-Semitic,” he writes; “it is questioning Israel’s right to exist that crosses the line.” I beg your pardon? How is that so? What if one is opposed to any state based on religious exclusiveness? What if you are opposed to any and all religious states anywhere in the world? And what if you are opposed to states that are founded on the ruins of a nation and a displaced population? So if you on principle oppose the right of Israel AND Saudi Arabia to exist (as religiously exclusivist states) than you are anti-Semitic AND anti-Muslim? (As’ad Abukhalil’s blog)
