Laws which censor freedom of speech are uncivilized and undemocratic. Rants against Jews are as ridiculous as rants against Moslems or Christians. The people doing the ranting make themselves look bigoted and stupid. Laws which single out a particular group, although anti-semitic should really apply to Arabs as well, except we know it means Jews, are self defeating. It seeks to make the group somehow special and also weak; so weak and immature that it cannot cope with the prejudiced rants of the ignorant. Anti-semitic laws don't stop prejudice; they just make Jews look silly. Who cares what he said or what Mel Gibson said? It's as wrong and as unpleasant as Israelis or Jews calling Arabs or Muslims vermin or saying it's okay to kill non-Jews. But laws against any of it are doomed to failure.
