This Is A Man Who Zionists Insist You Call An "Antisemite" - An Answer

The late German-Dutch phyicist, Hajo Meyer, a Jewish survivor of Auschwitz, a deep believer in what he called "Modern, humanistic-universalist Judaism" but whose writing and speaking was profoundly based in The Law, even as he was an agnostic.  His ethics and experience forced him to be deeply critical of the Zionist leadership of Israel, the ideology that has pretty much dominated Israel for most of the past 36 years.   He's one of the people who the current redefinition of "antisemitism" includes as "antisemites."  I wouldn't be surprised if some of the most clearly illegitimate parts of that campaign of defining "antisemitism," the parts that shield the Israeli government and its racist, militaristic campaigns through defining its critics with what is now the strongest means of silencing people in the United States were designed to make what he said unmentionable.   As Hajo Meyer was quoted as saying, "Formerly an anti-Semite was somebody who hated Jews because they were Jews and had a Jewish soul. But nowadays an anti-Semite is somebody who is hated by Jews."

The experience and deep knowledge Hajo Meyer shows, his experience as a victim of the Nazi genocide, a survivor of parents who were murdered by the Nazis, makes his analysis of the present day Palestinian reaction to Israeli policies important to listen to.  Yet the Zionists want to make him a non-person, someone who is not to be listened to, and people who listen to him, quote him, mention him are called "antisemites"   That is something they used in Britain to attack the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn, in much the same way that they are going after Democrats in the United States, now.  It was that incident, when he was invited to speak at an anti-genocide conference sponsored by Corbyn, that began that campaign that led me to listen to and read what Hajo Meyer said.   As someone pointed out recently, you never hear the zionists attacking the explicit antisemites in the Tory Party even as they don't attack those among the Republican-fascists in the United States.
