Israel is a part of the Middle-East conflict, and acknowledging that doesn't mean you are an anti-Semite. The U.N. gave what was Palestine to the Jewish people because they believe it is the Promised Land from God to his chosen people (the Jews.) No big deal, it sounds nice. But ever since they kicked out the Palestinians, they have treated them like dirt and been bullies to the surrounding countries. They are constantly bombing the little shred of land which is now Palestine. I seen some statistics a while back, the only one I remember said 100 Israeli children have died due to violence and close to 1000 Palestinian children have died. That should be an example of how violent and bully-like they are. The people in the Middle-East who hate Jews are anti-Semite, the people who hate Israel are anti-Zionists. At least that's how someone I was emailing from Iraq put it... There aren't very many in America who hate Jews like Middle-Eastern people do, but that is because we aren't as close to Israel and Palestine where all the trouble is. The only reason I can think of for people in America to hate Jews would have to be over the myth that they run the country. Hope I cleared things up for you.
