29. Is it possible to objectively criticize Israel without being accused of anti-Semitism?
I notice that any negative observations of Israeli actions create a shit storm of name calling and the core issues raised never seem to get addressed on their own merits. Perhaps I'm naive, but why does that one particular country get a free pass throughout America? I would think it should be possible to criticize the actions and policy of a country without denouncing a religion.

And please note -- I have not stated anything negative about Israel or Judaism, nor am I trying to kick up a flame war. I'm just asking a question based on my own observations.
