Thomas Friedman of The New York Times once wrote that "criticizing Israel is not antisemitic, and saying so is vile. But singling out Israel for opprobrium and international sanction - out of all proportion to any other party in the Middle East - is antisemitic, and not saying so is dishonest"

Today, that was demonstrated in a letter published in the Melbourne Age and written by Michael Medawar, North Melbourne in which the lie that mere criticism makes you antisemitic was repeated:-

"IF YOU criticise the US you're labelled a terrorist; if you criticise Israel, you are labelled anti-Jewish/Semitic. If you criticise China, Islam or Christianity, it's called freedom of speech."

Mr. Medawar, you are as much of an idiot as the Age editor who allowed this tripe to be published.
