Op-Ed: When ‘Israel First’ Means Condoning Old-School Anti-Semitism

Anna Momigliano at The Daily Beast:
The problem with the “Israel first” and “new anti-Semitism” approach is not so much that it makes of the State of Israel a priority and of the criticism of Israel an offense. The real danger lies in the implication that the freedom and dignity of Jews in the diaspora is somewhat of an expendable asset. That if anti-Semitism is taking new forms, then its old forms should be accepted, to a certain extent. 
Seriously, I worry. 
Maybe, when Jewish leaders start telling you shouldn't worry about anti-Semitism, you should start worrying, too.
