    Demonization of Israel is because of anti-semitism.

    Really?

    Really?

    As if there was no anti semitism before Israel came about…
    What do ou think happened to all the Europeans from the times of the holocaust, it wasn’t fashionable anymore to hate jews, so they went home nad educated their children to love them???
    They use Israel as an excuse.
    The founders of zionism thought that there was anti semitism because Jews didnt have a home land, now you are saying that there is anti semitism because of that homeland.
    They just hate us no matter what it’s been this way for ages and it still is.

The recent verbal and physical anti Semitic assaults are mostly coming from muslims who anti semitism is motivated by anti zionism. This is something which didn’t really exist in that past.

    I don’t think Dovid is blaming CNN as causal. if he is he doesn’t it state that very clearly or directly (to #3). These outlets are not the cause of such violence even if we don’t care for how they report or what they chose to report. Dovid actually seems to be saying that this is an issue that will need to be addressed on many levels–including by accurate reporting by the media. (this seems to be happening to some degree since he is saying this on CNN, no?). I think the idea that “OUR” media is the biggest factor… Read more »

    He was merely pointing out that today’s anti semitism is the same as before WW2 just packaged differently. But antisemitic nonetheless.

    Though it may start with the Jews, it continues with Christians and the western society, so beware if you are putting Israel down as a station or individual. Check out the motivation of ISIS
