So, another New Anti-Semitism. First it was ‘being anti-Jewish is anti-Semitism’ – and, of course, so it is. Then the Zionist fanatics came along and, purely for propaganda purposes, tried to posit anti-Zionism into the old-style anti-Semite frame by declaring that ‘anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism’. Then Mearsheimer and Walt came along and woke us up to the fact that anti-Zionism isn’t anti-Semitism because Zionism is a political ideology and not a racial one, a notion supported by the fact that many Jews are also anti-Zionist.

The Zionist fanatics like Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s foreign minister (and ‘foreign’ minister he indeed is, having come originally from Russia) persisted for a bit with the ‘anti-Zionist is anti-Semitism’ meme but, it seems, has decided that he’s getting nowhere with that nonsense so has now come up with a new meme that he thinks covers all the bases. The New Anti-Semitism, he declares, is: ‘being anti-Israel is anti-Semitism’.

With this new meme Lieberman reinforces the notion of Israel being specifically a Jewish state. Being exclusively a Jewish only state means it is, therefore, an apartheid state. And here’s the chutzpah; while the likes of Lieberman prattle on about the racism of anti-Semitism, they’re actually practicing racism themselves by insisting on a Jewish only state. Go figure!

What ‘they’ hate about ‘us’ is, not our democracies and freedoms, but our hypocrisy and arrogance.

The irony is that Lieberman and his cronies aren't even Semitic.
