    He isn't critiquing Israel. He is calling for its destruction. Saying that Israel should cease to exist IS anti-Jewish even if criticizing Israel and its government in general is not. It's a pseudo-colonial narrative at best, since 50% of Israelis are of Middle Eastern ancestry. Where will half the country go? Back to Arab countries that hate them? Or you think everyone should just go to America (a colonial country) instead? Most Israelis are decisively not Polish. The majority of Polish Jews ceased to exist during the course of WWII. So yes, he was accurately characterized as anti-Jewish instead of as an Israel-critic that he is not. For future reference: Don't attack Israel (in 1967) if you aren't prepared to lose some land. And then don't complain about it until 2014. Israel didn't seize that land, Egypt, Jordan and Syria decided to invade. Obviously, by calling for the destruction of Israel, he isn't really making it seem like Arabs are interested in peace anyway... No matter how much land you give back, they want the entire thing. If they really wanted a state in Palestine, they would have taken the Israelis up on their offer instead of demanding the entire thing. Just as a general rule, criticism to Israel won't be anti-Jewish when those criticisms are applied universally... Meaning to Chinese occupation of Tibet, or Russians killing or relocating Muslims... And many many others. I realize people only seem to care about things when Jews do it, but the criticism needs to be unbiased and even or not at all.
