Quote from Zionist post #42:
God, the more I read your sanctimoneous dribble the more I am convinced that you are an anti-semite (in disguise) and not for the reasons you think.
The above remarks, addressed to Disraeli, are an example of a distressing trait in this Forum: the tendency of some members to qualify non-Jews that disagree with our opinions or beliefs as anti-Semites.
Comes a fellow like Disraeli with interesting, although controversial opinions, trying to make a contribution to clarify issues and he's branded an anti-Semite because he dares to criticize Israel's positions.
Let's face it, present Israeli policies, are to say the least, controversial. Why shouldn't they be open to discussion from both Jews and Gentiles?
The problem with accusing someone with anti-semitism is that is one of those charges that cannot be disproved by the person involved. If someone accuses me of being a bird-hater, how can I disprove it? By filling my home with caged birds? Then I might be accused of cruelty to birds. By writing poems about birds? Then I might be accused of being an anti-birdist in disguise as Zionist does with Disraeli.
The way things are, there seems to be more than enough anti-Semitism in this blessed world. Why do we have to go around inventing more?
