Default Am I anti semitic ?

Serious Question.

Does opposing the illegal occupation and actions of Israel make me antisemitic? 😔

Yes. The argument has been realigned so that any criticism of the nation state of Israel makes you anti-semetic now

Presumably this anti-Semitism that is supposedly rife within the Labour Party is based on people criticising Israel too is it?

Israel's behaviour and actions over the years have actually turned me pro Palestinian so I guess this definitely makes me anti-semetic does it?

I guess the next question is, what are the implications of my opinions?

no.

I never understood genuine anti-semitism though. Never ever heard any real anti-antisemitism irl, but if you look through youtube comments you would think it is rife (in america).

I definitely do not hate Jewish people, I do hate the nation state of Israel. Does that make me antisemitic?

Yet if my views are typical to those being expressed at the Labour party conference and if the Labour party is supposedly rife with antisemitism then either I'm antisemitic too or the Labour Party isn't rife with antisemitism at all.

Hating the actions of a state does not mean you hate a religion. If you dislike the actions of Britain in terms of foreign policy it doesn't mean you hate British people

The Palestinians are Semites, so if there is a genuinely anti-Semitic state, it's Israel. Ironic that a number of the Labour activists being hounded by the Israeli lobby for so called anti-Semitism are Jewish

Israel, twisting everything since 1948.
