between criticising the actions of a **state** and those of a **race**. They are entirely different things. The world criticises Sudan continually. It is not because people are anti Sudanese Arab Muslims as a race, it is because they detest a regime that uses ethnic cleansing, killing and rape against minorities. Ditto Serbia in the '80s, the criticism was not racially-motivated against Serbs, it was aimed at a government and chauvinist right wing that bought into invasion, ethnic cleansing and barbaric treatment of occupied people. Ditto Israel. The criticism is of the regime and an extremist right wing who practice land theft and systematic oppression of an occupied minority. Because it has gone on so long now and the views of Israel's leaders remain grotesque, there is a danger that 'Israel' and 'Jew' become synonymous terms of criticism. At last you will have your wish come true. You can then shout 'anti-semite' at the end of every sentence and close your ears to all reality.
