Stop Connecting Anti-Semitism and Anti-Zionism With Islamophobia

Many practitioners of Islam reject Jewish sovereignty and consider Jews (and Christians) to be dhimmis – treated as second-class citizens. Arabism or Arab nationalism reject Zionism. This is the harsh reality. Within mainstream Judaism, there is no such analogue.

But the media – especially the liberal mainstream media – is reflexively prone to link anti-Semitism with ”Islamophobia,” as if the two sprang from the same womb.

The bald facts, however, scream otherwise. The vast majority of violence directed against Jews worldwide – and nowadays most prevalent in tolerant, liberal Europe – is being committed by Muslims who loudly proclaim and invoke their faith.
