    Antisemitism is the irrational, unjustified and prejudiced hatred of Jews, and of Judaism, as well. Ignorance is the handmaiden of bigotry. Those critics of Israel who babble on about Israel's bad treatment of Arabs choose not to see how WELL Israeli Jews have treated Arabs, nor how BRUTALLY Arabs treat other Arabs. This is evident in the ignorant, non-factual comments that appear here that criticize Israel unfairly. While antisemitism used to be unfashionable (but is coming back into fashion), anti-Zionism is quite fashionable now among the ignorantsia. Unfortunately, it is hard to expect those who don't know anything about the Middle East to learn the truth, if they read Leftist rags like HaAretz or watch Israeli movies like those of Yoav Shamir and other chronic self-haters. Today, Israel is, oddly, one of the great promoters of antisemitism - and Jews outside Israel would be wise to distance themselves from the self-hating Israeli Left that promotes bigotry-as-culture.
