22. She concentrated on her own message -- which was the humanitarian crisis
that she sought to relieve -- at some risk to her own safety I might add

The interviewer did make derogatory comments about what he referred to as the "political ideology of Zionism" -- as I noted in the OP. And as I said, that could have been contrued as anti-Semitic. McKinney did not give that interview to argue about whether the interviewer's use of the term "Zionism" was meant as anti-Semitic. She did it to bring attention to a humanitarian crisis about which she was very concerned. It would not have served that purpose to get involved in an argument with the interviewer. As I said in the OP, she did note that she believed that the "vast majority" of the people of Israel were peace loving. I don't call that anti-Semitic.

Even so, she did contradict the interviewer at one point, when he alluded to his believe that Obama did not have a U.S. birth certificate. It had something to do with Obama having gone under the name of Barry Soetoro. McKinney asked him politely at that point something to the effect, "How is it that you saw that document if nobody else did?"
