COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE BY BRE PAYTON IN THE FEDERALIST
“Anti-Semitism At The 2016 Olympics Is Completely Out Of Control”
That is a completely misleading headline.
Anti-Semitism is a form of prejudice, actually a form of superstition, not unlike fear of black cats.
Objecting to a country's atrocious and law-breaking behavior is not prejudice.
Objecting to murder, theft, and abuse has nothing to do with superstition.
Objecting to such behavior is about disturbing facts and one’s ethical response to them.
It is quite tiresome to see this false equality perpetuated yet again.
Of course, it is always indicative of an extreme and thoughtless bias towards Israel in the media using it, and that prejudice is the only one involved in all cases of labeling critics of Israel as anti-Semitic.
