can easily be seen in most talkback forums of larger newspapers, some of which do not censor the most outrageous ones. Even here, in a Jewish paper, commentators that say criticism of Israel is not anti-semitism, yet follow up their whitewashing effort with statements holding ALL Jews responsible for any given Israeli Government decisions they do not agree with. As a native German and a Jew by choice, I was troubled by the last election, which resulted in a government that will, in my opinion, delay any chance of a peaceful two state solution in the near future. Furthermore, as many Diaspora Jews, I am highly critical of the political power of the Orthodox Rabbinate in a democracy. Sadly though, a majority of the posters, holding only Israel responsible for the mess in the area that the Romans named "Palestine", clearly express a not so thinly disguised, old fashioned anti-semitism that has existed for about 1700 years.
