    I didn’t say that Pincus is anti-Semite. I am saying that the Israeli lobby in US always uses the "anti-Semite" as a tool to fight anyone that questions the money that US pours in Israel annually, that, let’s face it, it’s not good for US, Israel, Palestinian nor the World's peace. This money goes into a vicious cycle - building illegal wall, illegal settlements, etc. all which are obstacles to peace. Now this is my opinion and might be opinion of others too. But if I was to express this in the US as a US citizen, not to mention the opportunity cost where this bad money could have been invested in homeless US citizens - most common tool used to shut me up (particularly if I am a known public figure) - is to label me as anti-Semite. A cheap shot - always been, and always will be.
