    I think that we need to separate Zionism, (an aggressive political position which supports the creation of the Greater Israeli State, genocide and ethnic cleansing), Judaism (the religion) and Jews (the Jewish people). The area of land claimed by Zion is that which was 'given' to Abraham and his descendants by his God in a 'vision'. I've always thought that it was fairly suspect land deal (no witnesses). See Gen. 15: 18-21. Personally I don't mind Judaism or Jews but I think that the US backed Zionist movement is the most dangerous political force in the World today. So I'm not anti-Semitic cos I have both Jewish and Palestinian friends, but I am anti Zionist. IMHO the confusion about the term 'anti Semitic' is the result of a memetic weapon, crafted and used by Zionists to denigrate pro Palestinian intellectual debate Jeremy
