    "Whether it`s a compliment or a criticism, if you are not a Jew and you mention that word, you are an Anti-Semite,..." I'd like to expand on that idea. Anti-Semitism as a label has overstayed its welcome. It has been used so often that it no longer carries any meaning. For example people can freely criticize and disapprove of Islam and Muslims, and that of course is their right. People can pass judgment on Christianity and Christians without fear of any repercussions, and that is also their right. People can also freely disapprove of Communists, Marxists, and Anarchists or any other political ideology driven person. But this appears to be limit of freedom because if you or I try to voice the faintest criticism of Jewish people, Judaism or even Israel, we are in deep trouble. The label "anti-Semitic" will be thrown out so quick it will make your head swim. Believe me, I know from past experience posting here.
