Dear all, Over the years, I've had more than enough of ultra-Zionists trying (and failing) to convince me that all anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism. When anti-Zionists like Ahmed also appear to be willing to elide the difference, I get very annoyed with them. As for the derivation of 'anti-semitism', whatever its roots, it is now generally accepted as being prejudice directed at adherents of the Jewish religion, and/or those who identify their ethnicity as 'Jewish'. Aattempting to re-define it according to one's own personal view of the world seems to me to be a waste of time. What's all this got to do with the campaign to lift the sanctions? Quite a bit: Iraq is a multi-faith, multi-ethnic state, facing attack from people of many races and faiths. The movement to lift sanctions can't allow itself to get diverted onto expressions of hatred for one race/religion or another. <I've just cut a long and vitriolic diatribe against bigots, racists, and nationalists of all persuasions which originally occupied this paragraph.

Gharodi is an obvious proof. _______________________________________________ Sent via the discussion list of the Campaign Against Sanctions on Iraq.
