    An ideology such as Zionism is indisputably racist when the implementation of that ideology means discriminating against non-adherents (non-Jews) and forcing them out of their homes; stealing land; implementing discriminatory laws; allowing adherents of Zionism to "acquite' land of non-adherents; disrupting the daily lives of non-adherents for spurious reasons of "security" etc. Israel is not in any position to complain about anti-Semitism when the actions of the Israeli government gives such a principled facade to anti-Semitism. Nobody with any degree of sense can fail to be horrified by the brutal oppression that Israel metes out to Palestinians. Collective punishmnet eg Settlements etc are enormous crimes that are not excused by claiming that everyone hates Israel or Jews or whoever. Its quite amusing to see Israelis obsessing about anti-Semitism when they are so disriminatory themselves. Palestininans in Occupied Territories live under a brutally unjust Apartheid regime. That's what people should be worried about. Not the fact that the brutal oppressor - Israel - is unhappy because they think other people don't like them. Talk about unrealistic expectations.
