    Let's make it clear, like any other lobby group in the U.S., the Jewish (or Israel) lobby does have the right to advocate for the interests of the Jewish people in the U.S. and Israel. However, there is a thin line between "lobbying" and "bullying". And I'm afraid this line has been passed by organizations like AIPAC and ADL, as well as some neo-conservatives, for quite some time now. As long as everything went well, a lot of things could remain under the carpet, but since the Iraq war (which is blamed by many on the influence of the "Jewish" neo-conservatives) the tide is clearly turning. One should not exaggerate, but currently there is definitely (much) more potential for a new wave of anti-Semitism in the U.S. than in Europe. Especially if the U.S. will participate in a war with Iran.
