But he is right. Much of the criticism of Israel is, directly or indirectly, antisemitic (and much of the criticism of Islam is essentially Islamophobic).

No he isn't.  Talking about the Israeli Government's acts of War Crimes has nothing to do with victimising people of Jewish faith.

Well, one of those is real and one imagined. But comparing chalk and cheese all the same...

Peace evolved in the north of Ireland from a process which began with a recognition that Republicanism was a legitimate political cause. It was partly about both side recognising each other's political and cultural legitimacy.

Israel and the PLO had already reached that degree of understanding many years ago now. It was Hamas and their civil war which destroyed that process.

Israel has been under constant threat since the Arab League countries invaded in 1948 in opposition to the UN plan. Fundamental opposition to the existence of Israel has been cause of all future wars and occupations. It's the main reason why so many people across the region have been displaced. And its the reason why mainstream Israeli politics often seems so relatively hawkish.
