diluting the debate

behold a glorious straw man, erected for the sole purpose of establishing beyond polemical doubt that if you criticize the State of Israel, you're really a raving anti-Semite.

The rise of anti-semitism certainly does seem alarming, especially when you've diluted the term so that if you spell Isreal wrongly it qualifies. Which is just about were we have arrived.

Meanwhile, the real anti-semites, who actually think that killing innocent jews is justified, that Israel doesn't have a right to exist, that jews drink blood, etc - get a free pass.

Ah yes - the same author is well on his way to establishing that dissent is treason. Nice to see a country in the middle east adopting our Amerian values.
