Maajid Nawaz raises a very important point about Israel and anti-Semitism
Talking on his LBC show, Maajid talked about the moments when criticism of the state of Israel strays into the realms of anti-Semitism.
“Criticising Israeli policy is not anti-Semitism.
H”owever questioning Israel’s right to exist, denying the Jewish people the right to self-determination, while simultaneously holding a cognitive dissonance and affirming every other people’s right to self-determination in the world and singling out Israel [is].”
“By saying Israel doesn’t have the right to exist, that can well be anti-Semitic, because what are your motivations? People who question Israel’s right to exist – which was founded in 1948 – while at the same time you acknowledge Pakistan has the right to exist? [Pakistan] was founded in 1947 for precisely the same reasons.”
“[If] you are going to say Israel doesn’t have the right to exist – which by the way the UN has approved – I’d say that’s modern anti-Semitism.”
One of the pioneers of the Israeli Internet, Zvi was already established as the voice of Israeli internet among international users as early as 1991, which resulted in the Israeli government asking him to lead the famous Jerusalem One project, the very first Israeli Internet network.
Zvi Lando was the designer/builder of the first web sites for the Prime Minister's office, the Foreign Ministry, and worked for 13 years with the Jewish Agency, building dozens of projects, including, in 1996, Emet - the first Hebrew web site in history.
