…when I speak about dogmatic faith in the Immaculate Conception of the State of Israel and its preservation from all sin both original and actual. I mean this:
“[A]ny and all criticism of Israel not only can be but must be antisemitic. It is either subjectively antisemitic, in that it consciously and intentionally furthers the goals of the campaign; or it is objectively antisemitic, in that it unconsciously and unintentionally does the same thing. The distinction, if there ever was one, between the two, is now meaningless. Either way, the result is the same: Those who seek to slaughter the Jews en masse are brought a step closer to their goal,” – Benjamin Kerstein, Pajamas Media.
Sorry, but Israel is just one more secular western nation state–a human construct as capable of human virtue and as prone to sin as any other. Elevating it to a sinless utopia and declaring that any and all criticism of it is anti-semitic is a particularly idiotic act of idolatry. Try telling Jeremiah he was an anti-semite for pointing out the sins of the nation. He was, in fact, called from his mother’s womb to criticize Israel. In that, he differs from the thousands of Israeli babies who are ripped from their mother’s wombs each year by the thriving Israeli abortion industry. They also have something to say about what’s wrong with the secular western nation that is Israel, but only their blood speaks for them. It’s idiotic nationalism, not patriotism, that calls “anti-semitic” those who think all Jews should be allowed to live and not thrown into Pharaoh’s Nile or Moloch’s maw.
