When the right accuses the left of anti-Semitism, there must be something curious going on.When critics of the Israeli government speak of "the Zionists" instead of Israelis, you can be reasonably sure that they are zealots.The two countries that most clearly represent the evils of neocolonialism and racism in the eyes of the sectarian left are Israel and the U.S. Indeed, because of America's staunch support of Israel, especially now that President Donald Trump has given Benjamin Netanyahu's government license to do anything it likes, Israeli oppression of the Palestinians is seen as a common U.S.-Israeli enterprise.To view the U.S. and Israel as the single most malevolent threats to mankind is another. For some zealots on the left, Zionism and U.S. imperialism are so wicked that their avowed enemies must be the left's friends.That is why British Tories, who once might have held less than friendly views of the Jewish people, can now in good conscience condemn Labour politicians as anti-Semites.
