I accept your correction - 'war' was a misnomer.


In any case, it would be wrong to accuse me of taking sides, I have not, I have simply argued that 'anti-Israeli' is an anti-Semitic position whether you think it is or not, because 'anti-Israeli' is ideological rather than directed at specific cases.


This seems rather circular to me.
However, I stick to what I was trying to point out earlier. Namely, you may find that even criticising individual Israeli policies or military actions is often met with the same accusations of antisemitism.
If you take no sides, then it should be easy for you to recognise the unfairness of certain Israeli propaganda.
