    Under guidelines, an example of anti-Semitism is accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.

    Fox News however can say of a Muslim politician “…you have to wonder if she’s an American first.”

    While a Republican congressman has spread false allegations that  Ilhan Omar denied the September 11 hijackers were terrorists

    The Australia Labor Party candidate for the West Australian seat of Curtin, Melissa Parke, has pulled out following reports that she told a public meeting last month that the way Israel treated Palestinians was “worse than the South African system of apartheid”.

    One of Israel’s new friends, Bolsonaro of Brasil, stated that  the Nazi genocide of the Jews during World War Two could be forgiven.

    He also asserted, after a tour of the Holocaust memorial Yad Vadshem, that the Nazis had been “leftists.”

    Netanyahu as yet makes no comment

    “An individual has a right to buy or not buy what they please. However, if there is an organized movement to economically strangle the state of Israel, that is anti-Semitic… We are going to focus relentlessly on eradicating this false distinction between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism.” – Elan Carr, the Trump administration’s newly appointed Special Envoy for Monitoring and Combating “Anti-Semitism”

    If semitism is related to races or ethnic groups instead of linguistics, In our times the anti-semitism against the Arabs is bigger than the anti-semitism against the Jews

    You’re spot on Marcos. Unfortunately trying to get this point across to closed minds is almost impossible. However, we’ll keep on trying at each and every opportunity!

    Marx never wrote that and Draper doesn’t say he did. He wrote that James Joyce said this in relation to the Irish.

    Is there any way of deleting your post before this “quote” spreads all over the internet?

    Re-reading I see that I misinterpreted this. It is a hypothetical supposition.

    Incidentally James Joyce refused to travel on an Irish Free State passport as he regarded that state as a joke.  He had a British one. Not a lot of Irish Nationalists know that.

    I once mediated between a vociferous argument between two Irishmen about who was really Irish and who was the “plastic paddy”, the one born under the Free State which legally was a dominion recognising the Crown and had a British governor albeit chosen by the Irish government and the one born later in 1949 when the Republic was formally declared, although he went to the UK as a baby

    There’s a famous anti-Free State song “Take It Down From the Mast, Irish Traitors, It’s the Flag We Republicans Claim, It will never belong to Free Staters”, a product of the civil war amongst Irish Nationalists that followed the so-called War of Independence there. James Joyce opposed it on other grounds of course.

    He wrote the foreword in 2011 for a new edition of JA Hobson’s 1902 book, Imperialism: A Study.

    Alan and ALB, I am Irish. It is enough to wrestle with the Troubled past: identity politics and colonialism is a mute point. I have experience the anti and the pro associated with it, being born on both sides of the divide.
