Naive or Stupid?

Reader comment on item: Islam, Israel and Insurgents
in response to reader comment: Bewildered by world view of Israel

anti-Israeli (anti-semitic)

The two things are not reciprocal as you make them out to be. Anti-Semitism goes beyon being anti-Israel. Semitics are also non-jews and non-Isralite.

Just because someone has criticism of Israel - does not make them racists - it is deceptive, dangerous, foolhardy and pathetic to do so.

Israel was created on the land that did not belong to a group of mostly European Jews. They WERE forcibly placed there by moving other out. The British allowed this to happen and it is USA that maintanis its status.

Beyond that it is either your naivety or your deception that led to your comments.
