    Yet it has been broadened into Zionism as a political idea.

    When the far right or left start going on about how Jews are all money hoarders who run the world like some kind of cult, you may call that antizionism but it is also antisemetic.

    Undoubtedly that would be antisemitic (given it has little to do with Israel or Zionism, I'd question whether it could meaningfully be called anti-Zionism though), but that's not really what I'm getting at.

    Zionism is a nationalist ideology and Israel is a heavily ethnocentric state, very much defined as existing for Jews as an ethnic group. Now, that in itself isn't unique, there have been many other such states in the modern era, including some which continue to exist today. But while those other states have generally been regarded as racist or veering on racism, for Israel it is regarded as anti-semitic to oppose such ethnocentrism.

    Have you ever been to a predominantly Muslim country, and mixed with the locals? It's not the authoritarian terrorist stronghold you think it is.
    I would argue a Muslim majority country is far more accepting, tolerant and peaceful than the likes of the U.K. for example

    Good lord.


    What sort of things could you have been prosecuted for?

    Hardly any of course.

    However accusing Christians of being gaylords could get you cautioned if you were unlucky.
