Is it anti-semitic to point out that, for example, Ronald Lauder (American heir to the Estee Lauder fortune and the major stakeholder behind the most popular TV Networks in Eastern Europe ), is a Jewish Zionist who essentially believes that Israel has the right to do whatever it wants in the world without consequence? Is it anti-semitic to suggest that his network's programming might be biased and slanted in favor of Mr. Lauder's self-proclaimed prejudices? Is it anti-semitic to point out the obvious connection between his wanting to control the media as part of his extreme Zionist agenda? And more importantly, is it anti-semitic to suggest that Jews are no more human than Palestinians? I think not.
Anti-semitism is an illogical and immoral hatred toward every Jewish person. But hating a person because his Judaism happens to influence him such a way that his actions end up having a negative impact on others cannot be called anti-semitism. It is called hating the sin, not the sinner.
Two hours ago the Associated Press published this story, which claims "rising anti-semitism" because of the "stereotype of Jews as manipulators of the global economy." Is it still a stereotype if it is true? It's interesting that the Associated Press itself is under the control of its Jewish Vice President and Managing Editor, Michael Silverman. It's understandable that his staff would publish propaganda designed to prevent us from connecting these dots. Read the article carefully and you'll see exactly what I mean.
I'm not suggesting that only Jews are manipulators of the mainstream media and world economy. There are plenty of Zionists who aren't Jews (the non-Jewish Neoconservatives). I'm also not suggesting that there's anything wrong with supporting a Jewish homeland...but when when extreme Zionism becomes the predominant theme in world politics, consequences be damned, there's nothing wrong with pointing out who is responsible.
