I think the problem is Bradley, in the current anti-Israeli climate, where more and more anti-Semitic tropes are being deployed in the name of anti-Zionism, your views can sometimes be used by others to justify that bigoted narrative against the Jewish collective. The Jews in the diaspora - especially in Europe are feeling the heat more than you might think. This doesn't excuse the comments made against you, but may help to explain the anger they feel in the current climate. May I wish you good health and kind regards to your mum and dad.
