It is well know that the pro-Israel lobby AIPAC has many in the US Congress in its pocket. The Economist cartoon points this out neatly. There is nothing anti-semitic about this. Foxman is such a hypocrite. He rightly criticises a member of the Knesset for calling Foreign Secretary John Kerry "anti-semitic", but he is himself one of those who frequently abuses the term "anti-semitism". Recently he suggested that the continued detention of convicted spy Jonathan Pollard was inspired by "anti-semitism" and now he calls the Economist cartoon "anti-semitic". Foxman does not only use the term "anti-semitism" inappropriately. He is often seen to be trying to give it a new meaning, which is that legitimate criticism of Israel and its policies and legitimate criticism of political zionism as an ideology is being equated with "anti-semitism". By doing this Foxman is cheapening and weakening the struggle against real anti-semitism.
