"You quote Noam Chomsky -- the most supreme Jew-hater in history. (I noted that he said Israel was not like South Africa, but worse!)

"You provide proof for Meir Lansky's crimes from a movie --a fiction-based novel" Etc. Etc. (More people saw those movies than read any books on Jews in organized crime!)

Oops, and now, the closer: "And finally, there is plenty more I could say to you and to those who share your antisemitic views. But it will take a whole book, and I'm not in the mood to write one at this moment."

Never mind that I have written books, articles and produced a TV series about South Africa. And, never mind, that on this past Saturday one hundred thousand South Africans marched in solidarity with the Palestinians of Gaza, You would think their memory of Apartheid qualified them to make that parallel.

But never mind.

My friend, the distinguished African journalist and editor, Marie-Roger Biloa wrote to me from Paris, when I told her about the nasty response, "that is usual, stupefying that so many Jews, among the best and the brightest, just do not understand and accept that people protest in the streets against Israel's policy. I just listened to a German Jewish writer lashing out at "antisemitism disguised as anti-zionism."

No doubt, the vehemence of my critic's views, and his immediate labeling of me as antisemitic or worse, speaks to how cantankerous the discourse on this subject has become.

It is now verboten to challenge the consensus of the Israel firsters who speak not just in sanctimonious defense of a state dominated by a malicious far right-wing government, but make it appear they are speaking for all Jews everywhere. All that takes is a couple of hundred million for PR and media spin.
