Highlighting the striking, but not coincidental, similarities between the early stages of Antisemitism as it arose in Europe in 19th c and Anti-Zionism in the West today.
Dr. Einat Wilf writes and lecture extensively on Zionism and anti-Semitism.
A point we’ve made here repeatedly, particularly as to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement, is that while in theory there is a difference between anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism, in the real world they are almost always the same.
Wilf makes that and other points in her lecture as part of a debate over the proposition that “Anti-Zionism is Anti-Semitism.” The full video of all speakers is available here. Wilf’s presentation is below. (If anyone finds a transcript of Wilf’s presentation, please post a link in the comments).
Here’s a one-minute excerpt:
"When you fight us three years after a genocide and you wage a genocidal war telling us that we have no right to defend ourselves, then we will fight you back.." @eWilf
