    Those whose criticisms of Israel are based in anti-Semitism might use yours to further their own, but their motives are generally known by most, which essentially relegates them to the fringes in the eyes of the majority. Likewise are the Zionist extremists that might condemn, ostracize, and label you for speaking out against their fascist agenda, and who consist of essentially the same mentalities as the first group. And although the voices of these two extremes may be the loudest, and therefore get more media attention, they will nevertheless remain at the fringes as long as there's reasonable and pragmatic voices like yours providing a balanced perspective. Always maintain your persistence and integrity to your values and ideals; for your sake, for israel's sake, and for the sake of the 'majority' who shares them and need the reinforcement that YOUR voice provides. And to hell with those loud voices that come from the fringes - they are doomed to eventually fade into obscurity.
