    You say the antisemitism is due to the treatment of the Palestinians. That's like saying: anti-black sentiment is due to black murder rates or other dysfunction. First of all: NO form of racism is permissible for any reason. In other words, racism is simply not permissible. But let's look at this further: Is the DEGREE of hate of the Jews PROPORTIONATE to the degree of injustice of the acts committed by the Jews ? Clearly, no. After all, ALL antisemites CLAIM they are justified by something the Jews have done. Clearly Jews are not saints, so the only question to ask is: this thing which the Jews have done (acts against the Palestinians), does it justify the DEGREE of HATE you are hurling at Jews ? If yes, then, do you have the SAME DEGREE of HATE against other groups which do the same or worse ? Clearly, most people who hate the Jews in the Middle East sit idly while hundreds of thousands of their onw kind are MURDERED and are hardly moved in their emotions.
