But what the heck does "criticizing Israel" have to do with hate crimes? You're taking place in a forum about attacks on innocent people (not just Jews but others around the world per the article) to launch into a diatribe about Israel, complete with the usual propaganda about how criticism of Israel isn't antisemitic. Well, sometimes it is and and sometimes it isn't. There are a number of opinions about the Jewish group in Britain that you cite. Their opinions don't square with the majority, either in Britain or in the US. But that's beside the point. The point is this article is about the beating of Jews, the desecration of their property, the intimidation of people on the street. It's about hate crimes, not about your precious "antizionism isn't antisemitism" meme. Are you suggesting that the statistics are false? Why? Because you don't like the messenger perhaps? That's a lame excuse to ignore an increasingly frightening reality.
