  •  This is not "anti-semitism" (8+ / 0-)
    "how dare Obama humiliate one of the respected members of the Knesset.  Doesn't he know that Israelis can't be terrorists?"
    It is rather a sarcasm attempt based on the disrespectful and bullyish attitude of the current Israeli government's behavior and comments towards the president and US, in general.

    Calling every bit of criticism "anti-semitism" undermines the gravity of true "anti-semitism" and thus does disservice to millions who suffered and continues to suffer from it.

      a reason.

      ussually just being an asshole of immense size.
      We have both seen some very nasty comments made by people who are no longer here which were heavily hr'd by "both sides" in I/P diaries.

      It does not follow that if both sides are HR'ing you, you must be doing something right.

          My comment was directed at the OPs contention that being Hr'd by "both sides" was somehow a good thing.

          Nothing else.
