    you seem to be confusing hostility to israel with anti-semitism,i know the difference and i am sure that you do too but in case you don't believe me i will say that an anti-semite is someone who simply does not like Jews irrespective of their nationality or place of residency,this is hatred based purely on ethnicity.hostility to israel-in my case anyway-is based on the politics and humanitarian concerns,i think what the Palestinians have had to suffer and sacrifice in order to make way for this state to come about is an outrage and will never cease to attract my deepest antipathy whilst it continues to stick to its present course. When the Apartheid regime still operated in South Africa i was just as hostile to that and nobody ever accused me of being racist towards whites. inviting Jewish people who feel uncomfortable living in this supposedly hostile -to Jews-environment to move to israel is a lousy suggestion,it will only make a bad situation worse by increasing demand for more and more of Palestinian land because israel is trying to expand at a greater rate than we have seen for a long time which will make the lives of the Palestinians even more difficult and greatly increase the anger felt in the Arab world.The vast majority of hostility towards israel from around the world is based not on race but on the activities of the israelis-it's not WHO you are.it;s what you DO.
