Are all criticisms of Israel instances of anti-Semitism?

No. I had a heated debate with someone on here acting as though it was. It’s possible to criticize someone who’s Jewish (Soros, Shapiro, any random Jewish guy) without it being anti-Semitic. It’s dependent on how you criticize them.

1) there is no question that anti-semitism is on the rise globally and domestically. 2) if you are pro America, then there is no reason to be anti-Israel. 3) there is no moral equivalence between Israel and the Palestinians. 4) Israel is both the good guy and the victim. Any other opinion is just ignorance.

So their human rights violations mean nothing? It's unfathomable to you that people might not be ok with human rights violations?

Its just something used to smear anyone who speaks objectively and critically against Israel’s actions. Whats telling is that the 1st bill passed in the Senate this year was one in favor of attacking free speech protections of those who support BDS. Something that is in Israel’s best intentions nothing to do with helping our own citizens in the U.S. but a foreign government.

How come the Jews are the only ones who get a whole new word to refer to prejudice against them?

Excellent observation. Finally something the Jews and muslims have in common.

Not all but most have an undercurrent of anti semitism.

Specifically anti Zionism is naked anti semitism.

No. In fact criticism of Israel and antisemitism are unrelated.

True but unfortunately there are many instances in which the two are intertwined.

Intertwined.

Hopefully this isn't controversial, but it is possible to criticize Israel without being an anti-Semite.
