4. I don't think criticism of Isreal is anti-semitic in and of itself

 

But it's pretty easy to cross that line. (I also don't think it's a particularly innocent mistake in this particular new instance, but that's a discussion for another day).

Here is the problem Everyone who criticizes Israel is not Anti-Semitic. But all Anti-Semites criticize Israel.

I think it's pretty simple to avoid this. Don't compare Israel to Nazis. Don't accuse Israelis of buying people off. Don't accuse Jews of buying people off. Don't accuse American Jews of disloyalty. If you avoid those four things, you'll probably be ok.
