    really, are you surprised? assuming that there is actual anti-semitic content on this page and this is not just another case of playing the anti-semitism card to try to delegitimize anti-zionism, its not exactly shocking. i'm not saying the crimes that israel commits are a legitimate excuse for anti-semitism, but they are definitely a good argument in favor of anti-zionism. are you surprised that there are 10,000 people in a world of 6 billion who are too stupid to understand the difference? israel's wildly unjust actions towards its neighbors and the native inhabitants of its land (the palestinians) very understandably makes people angry, and then, ironically, the small minority of those angry people who are fooled by the mainstream israeli narrative that "israel" and "jews" are one and the same naturally have anti-semitic feelings. i'm not saying its right (to confuse judaism the religion and/or ethnicity with zionism the warped ethnic-nationalist political ideology), i'm saying its predictable.

Why we don't know how to pick our leaders

Our craving for ideology means that we are partial to ideological leaders. But we need leaders who will make smart decisions that are aligned with the public interest.
