    Not unpopular, just the choice of expression does not help your argument.

    Some of this is also about depth of knowledge on the subject - one can make the argument that Israel is doing the wrong thing both in general (occupation and oppression) and in this specific case (civilian casualties, disproportionate response) without bringing up the specific examples of concentration camps and apartheid. Neither of those metaphors fits well enough for them to apply and when you use them I feel you distract from instead of add to your point.

    BTW, I have some disagreements with your point, but I am a big fan of vigorous discussion and debate especially on hot issues such as I/P. I have overall been impressed with the quality of the discourse on DKos especially given how deeply emotional this issue is for so many (including myself).

    If you believe that ALL criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're an idiot.
    If you believe that NONE of the criticism of Israel is antisemitic, you're a fool.
    If you call EVERYONE who criticizes Israel antisemitic, you're just an a$$hole
