    Chaim, I think that is a natural conclusion to make, but it is slightly in err. Living in the US alongside the liberal community, I can attest its not the same anti-semitism. American liberals know Jews; they tend to have Jewish friends, and sometimes are Jewish themselves. The problem is that they have an underdog complex: they root for the underdog, and they see the underdog in this situation as Palestinians. Since they know Jews, they hold Jewish people to a higher standard then they do Arabs. They also tend to feel guilty about our government's treatment of Arab citizens, with some good reason, which gives a proclivity to feeling passionate about Palestinian rights. BDS protesters have also targeted the liberal protest community for years, appearing at Anti-War protests against Iraq, alongside Medical Marajuana protesters. The liberal sentiment in America is the opposite of Jew-hatred. Instead, it is holding a much higher standard for Jewish behavior than for Arab.
