    Anti Semitism reminds me mostly of my childhood in England,after the attrocities of the second world war.I knew little of the 6 million jews that died at that time but anti semitism was still rife in the east end of London. Today a negative comment brings out such comments and certainly 2 or 3 for sure.I said as much to Lakshmi myself after she mentioned Jews and money as well as all the things she says about Israel. But Anti Israel comments themselves is not anti semitism.There is a lot Israel does wrong,the same as any other country and its fair game to criticize.That is not anti semitism. Anti Zionism is another thing,its only about National will (the word Zionism has been wrongly used by actually anti semites)But it is anti semitic to talk about Jewish desires for their homeland. So when this report mentions Anti semitism on rise its problably mixing all three together and in doing so it waters down the danger itself.
