Confusion over jews and zionism

Dear Sir,

It’s no use Roslyn Pine fretting that the line between anti-Semitism and anti-Israel activism has disappeared (Jewish News, letters, 12 March) while previously claiming it was deceitful for George Galloway to state that Zionism and Israel are different things from Judaism and Jewishness (Opinion, 12 February).

How does she expect non-Jews to discriminate between Jews and Israel when she herself promotes the notion that Zionism is fundamental to Judaism and that the connection between Jews and Israel lies at the heart of what it means to be Jewish?

Of course anti-Israel activists are going to attack Jews for being Jewish if being Jewish means supporting Israel and Zionism. If Jews refuse to draw the line between Judaism and Zionism, neither will those who protest against Israel and Zionism.
