European Left and anti-Semitism

Zionist hoodlums have every right to be alarmed with the rise of anti-Israeli sentiments in Europe and around the world (outside of the US--the last bastion of Zionist colonial thought).  But how do Zionists respond to this phenomenon?  They resort to the standard Zionist practice of distortion, fabrication, and the production of lies.  Since its inception, the Zionist movement operated on a simple premise: that lying for the cause of propaganda is a casual occurrence.  It is fair to say that as much as Arab regimes lie in the course of their business, Israel lies far more, and even with less skill increasingly.  So there is this long article in the New York Times about the rise of anti-Semitism among the left, but as typical in such trashy articles, there is not a single evidence of anti-Semitism.  Not one.  The author instead resorts to rehashing statements from Islamists, forgetting that his article is about the Left and not about Islamists.  "Ken Livingstone, a former newspaper editor and mayor of London, has a long history of insensitive remarks about Jews — from publishing a cartoon in 1982 of Menachem Begin, then Israel’s prime minister, in Gestapo uniform atop a pile of Palestinian skulls to likening a known Jewish reporter to “a concentration camp guard” 20 years later. Today, he contributes to Press TV, the English-language outlet for the Iranian government."  So the whole article about the left is reduced to one reference to King Livingstone, and the cases against him--at least here--are rather dubious.  Working  for Press TV (or for Fox News for that matter), does not make one anti-Semitic in itself.  Publishing a cartoon against Begin does not make one anti-Semitic either.  As for calling a Jewish reporter "a concentration camp guard", while I would like to see the context of such a statement, I would like more information on the subject before I can render a judgement especially that the writer of this silly shows himself to be a typical Zionist in his disregard for logic and truth.  In my experience with European and US left, people are rightly quick to denounce anti-Semitic expressions.  I can only think of an Israeli who "infiltrated"--so to say--into the pro-Palestinian leftist camp in Europe, Jilad Atzmon, and I and others signed petitions against him and people in the left denounced what they saw as evidence of his anti-Semitism.  So there is no story here whatsoever except that Zionists are upset that people are turning against Israeli terrorism so the only refuge for Zionist hoodlums is to falsely cry "anti-Semitism" to stifle debate.  Those tactics work in the US but they don't work anywhere else.  This is why the writer wrote his trashy piece in the New York Times, of all places.
