"Israel is the criterion according to which all Jews will tend to be judged. Israel as a Jewish state is an example of the Jewish character, which finds free and concentrated expression within it. Anti-Semitism has deep and historical roots.

"Nevertheless, any flaw in Israeli conduct, which initially is cited as anti-Israelism, is likely to be transformed into empirical proof of the validity of anti-Semitism. It would be a tragic irony if the Jewish state, which was intended to solve the problem of anti-Semitism, was to become a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism. Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world."

    Israel needs not just a good PR set-up, but an outstanding one, head and shoulders above all the anti-Israel sources. It must be both national and international in origin and participation. The facts must saturate the minds of anti-Semites and their audience. It is only through generations of education and 'brain clarification' that the twisting of facts and language can be overcome.
