Sadly. I agree with you but the fact remains that any group that is openly and publically critical of Israel or its policies and calls for accountability will be undermined by being attacked as anti-semitic. It is the guilt blame game and has been used by Israel as a means of discrediting its critics. You also fail to mention a growing third group and that is those who realise that it is no longer a question of a state that is both Jewish and democratic, but is only Jewish, and the democratic part is secondary if not completely sidelined. Many of us feel a profound sense of betrayal. When we read of zionist youth gathering and cheering on the destruction of the Bedouin village in the Negev or we find actions like those in Silwan and Sheik Jarreh put down as nothing more than property disputes, and that this kind of undemocratic activity goes on with the support of the government, we are more than merely disillusioned. We feel we have wittnessed the demise of a movement that at one point in its history aspired to be both Jewish and democratic.
