15. Completely agree with you!

Israel claims to be a democracy, not a theocracy. When we criticize government policies that deliberately hurt Palestinians by taking their land for expansion of the state of Israel, I do not see that as antisemitism. It is the same as criticizing our own government for things like forcing the Japanese into interment camps, forcing them to lose their homes and livelihoods. Our government’s treatment of people of color as well as Native Americans is just as bad as the treatment of Palestinians.
