War ends, antisemitism drops

Over the past few days I haven't blogged much.  The reason being is that there isn't much to blog.  Jews aren't being attacked, nobody is calling to "kill the Jews" on the streets and in the mosques.

Anti-Zionistst claim that there's no connection between antisemitism and anti-Zionism.  They say that criticism of Israel is not antisemitism.

They are right that criticism of Israel is not antisemitism. But what has been going on over the past month was not 'criticism of Israel'.

This week there were big rallies against antisemitism in Sweden and in the UK.  In both these countries, politicians spoke harshly against antisemitism, and that's a good thing.  But those politicians should look carefully at how they handled themselves.  Did they demand Israel stop fighting against a terrorist force that was shooting rockets at unarmed civilians?  Did they say that Hamas rockets are not a threat, because Israelis are able to protect themselves?  Did they demand Hamas disarm?

Did they pose the same demands to Israel as they do to any other country in the same situation?
