    The oppressive class of non-Jews is not going to be damaged by a false accusation here or there. If you feel that your comrade is doing your people a disservice, you might try speaking to that person in private, rather than publicly berating. Publicly berating and disagreeing only serves to divide your solidarity and strengthen the oppressors.
    'the oppressive class of non-jews' may not be harmed much by false accusations of anti-semitism, but it sure as shit doesn't help the jews. it only weakens the case to be made when actual anti-semitism exists. you even see it here, when there's a diary critical of israel's policies and everyone is all 'oh noes, someone's going to call me an anti-semite LOL'.

    when someone coughs up a false accusation of anti-semitism, it isn't my job as a jew to automatically stand by them because he or she is jewish, nor to attack gentiles who (gasp!) point out that it's a fasle accusation. if it's false it's false, and i'm not standing by a falsehood because the person who coughs it up looks like me or worships the same god.
