    Being an antisemite doesn't mean being a not nice person. Many antisemites don't understand why they're labelled as such...A main feature of antisemites is not being bad, but having crazy ideas about Jews. Like you do. I saw a book claiming Jews are aliens. Supposedly some Christians believe Jews have horns because they're descended from the Devil; I'm sure many of those Christians are very nice fine people. But their views are not only offensve, but dangerous - 'demonizing' Jews lays the groundwork for others to oppress, expell and exterminate. Many people believe that all successful Jews in the world are united in an attempt to achieve world domination. And many people who believe this feel that they are simply being complimentary to the Jews who are so clever in being able to do this. And they're shocked to be called antisemites. Giving credibility to Palestinian claims that the IDF killed civilians to harvest organs makes one an antisemite. But perhaps still a nice one.
