Palestine: Anti-Semites Increasing in Europe

Palestinian blogger Haitham Sabbah wonders why anti-Israeli sentiments are on the increase.
He quotes Haaretz saying: “…the number of anti-Semitic incidents rose significantly in Europe last year, according to a joint study released Sunday by the Jewish Agency’s Forum for the Coordination of the Struggle Against Anti-Semitism.”
He also links to a site with the names of almost 7,000 Jews who are described as self-hating and/or Israel threatening.

  • I think that this topic is making a big confusion between being anti-Israeli and being an anti-semitic. We can be against the policy of the state of Israel without hating Jews. This kind of confusion has been used for decades to discredit critics against Israel. PROPAGANDA PROPAGANDA
