Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think it's quite shameful the way far right Zionists have tried to leverage the Holocaust to stifle all criticism of Israeli policies as being, by definition, anti-Semitic. Given that Palestinians are a Semitic people as well, Zionists have tried to corner the market in anti-Semitism and effectively turned Palestinians into a non-people, or Untermenschen, if you want to be really provocative.

As the Nazi generations have died away, accusations of anti-Semitism have lost their force and now only serve to undermine any sympathy or respect people might have had for the Israeli state. I wouldn't be surprised if accusations of Anti-Semitism actually help Corbyn electorally at this stage, although he wouldn't want that sort of support at all and would be too embarrassed to acknowledge it.
