This is what is considered anti-Semitic in the US: a Free Palestine sign

"The controversy began last month, shortly after Henze distributed a poster promoting the club’s first meeting, she said. It featured a photo of an anti-war protest that included a person holding a “Free Palestine” sign, in reference to the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
Several people contacted the Jewish Federation of Columbus about the image, calling it offensive and "anti-Israel," said Bob Lane, the federation's vice president of Jewish community relations. Amnesty International also has drawn criticism from people who allege a bias against Israel.  The federation forwarded the complaints to the school district. The posters were removed and the meeting was postponed."
