That is completely disingenuous, not to mention an insult to people's intelligence. It's an old political trick to call any criticism a smear - the Scots Nats used it ad nauseum in 2014. It stops any proper discussion in its tracks.

Sometimes things are just as they appear. Ken is an anti-semite of old - it's just that he's more open about it these days. Increasing age can make people far less circumspect in their opinions.

Some of the opinions expressed in this thread have been utterly depressing and dispiriting - plus ca change.
The orignial quote from Sharma that started it was years ago, has been in the public domain for years and it gets spread about a week before elections? By a known rightwing outlet? Just a coincidence..... Right.....
Ken is not an anti-semite, he's anti-zionist, and pro negotiation, but not anti-semitic. From what I could assertain fro his past quotes and the stupid one he made last week, he meant that anti-semites hate all jews, no matter where they are, and that only critiquing Israel is not in itself anti-semitic. It's been taken by some to mean that it's OK to hate jews in Israel, but I cannot see how that jump was made.
