What constitutes genuine anti-Semitism–Jew hatred–as opposed to disingenuous, specious charges of "anti-Semitism" hurled at realistic, rational appraisals of the state of Israel’s political, military and social conduct?

There’s no more explosive topic in American public life today than the issue of Israel, its treatment of Palestinians and its influence on American politics.
