Anti-Zionism Is Deliberately conflated with Anti-Semitism to Suppress Legitimate Criticisms of Israeli Policies

Thank you Avi Shlaim, professor at Oxford University, for telling the truth about opposing Israel versus antiSemitism:


What is striking, however, about contemporary Britain is the use of anti-Semitism as a political tool to silence legitimate criticism of the policies and practices of the Israeli government and the collusion of members of the political establishment in this process...

An anti-Zionist, on the other hand, is someone who opposes Israel as an exclusively Jewish state or challenges the Zionist colonial project on the West Bank.Israeli propagandists deliberately, yes deliberately, conflate anti-Zionism with anti-Semitism in order to discredit, bully, and muzzle critics of Israel; in order to suppress free speech; and in order to divert attention from the real issues: Israeli colonialism, Israel's apartheid, its systematic violation of the human rights of Palestinians, and its denial of their right to independence and statehood. The propagandists persistently present an anti-racist movement (anti-Zionism) as a racist one (anti-Semitism).

The world must understand Mr Shlaim's message because he is telling the truth. Are there white supremacists who cloud the issue as well? Of course. But it is in the Zionists' best interest to muddle the truth, and it is an injustice against Jewish people everywhere, who often take the brunt of criticism for policies in Israel that they have no control over.

Please understand, Zionism is not, was not, nor will ever be, Judaism. Both True Torah Jews and New Covenant Christians believe that Zionism is not the real Zion.
