Another very thoughtful piece from academic Philip Mendes entitled "When does anti-Zionism become anti-Jewish hatred?" in the ABC's Drum.
Interestingly enough, and as if to prove Mendes' case, there appear some truly hate soaked comments from Israel's detractors immediately below the article, many of which are based on fictions and outright lies routinely spread by the Palestine lobby.
The Palestinian tragedy is that these are also the views of the current Palstinian unity leadership which effectively rule out any possibity of an early resolution of the conflict.
Neverthless, thanks to the author and to some of those who responded to him, we are given an interesting insight into when anti-Zionism becomes anti-Jewish hatred.
