    1. I donot like to label anyone who fairly criticisez Israel as anti-Semites. I also do not support many Israeli policies. 2.There is a great article about this subject in Hurriyet written by HADI ULUENGIN who happens to be a Muslim Turk and often very critical of Isarel but not at all an anti-Semite. Unfortunately the google translation of Turkish is not very accurate. 3. On the other hand many who are posting at Haaretz who claim to criticize Zionism sound that they are intolerant of Jews in general rather then just critical of Israel. 4. As for you; I can never forget how you used an incident in the USA about a Kosher slaughterhouse to criticise Isarel (it did not happen in Israel you did not criticise USA you criticised Jews flat out). At the same time never saying a word about the inhumane slaughter that goes unreported every year in Muslim countries such as Turkey during the holidays. This tells a lot about you.
