I just want to explore this subject. I took a class in college on the Holocaust and learned quite a bit about the roots and manifestations of anti-semitism. However, I think that this word is sometimes over extended and used in cases where it should not be. I personally, on this board and in real life been called an anti-semite for criticizing the policies of Israel, and the blind support of Israel by Jews in this country. I cannot understand why people are so quick to throw this label on someone that criticizes the policies of a country, and making quite obvious observations on world events and politics. Its like anything criticizing them is a taboo, and they are to be left alone. DOes anybody understand what Im saying? Comments, questions are welcome, I hope I was able to adequately explain myself.

People are smeared as anti-semite so that their questions and criticisms will go unanswered. Its an effective method of shutting somebody up, although IMO its been used too much lately and is losing its impact.
