Can you critique Israel without being Anti-Semitic
That's the theme for the week at Newsweek-The Washington Post.
As one friend said, "First sex, then Israel! What's next, homosexuality?"
Ah well, it certainly has made my first two weeks on the On Faith Panel... interesting. I suspect, as another friend said, I could simply put up, "hello" and the comments would be more or less in the same tenor.
Anyway, the obvious answer to the question is, "of course." But, there's obviously a lot of room for anti-semitism to creep into critiques of Israel. My full thoughts on the matter are here:http://www.newsweek.washingtonpost.com/onfaith/pamela_k_taylor
