The Excesses of Anti-Anti-Anti-Semitism
by

David Bernstein:

As I’ve noted before, friends of Israel sometimes use overwrought charges of anti-Semitism to try to silence critics of Israel. That’s undeniable, and regrettable.

Equally undeniable, and regrettable, is when a friend of Israel criticizes critics of Israel, and then gets accused of calling everyone who criticizes Israel anti-Semitic, even when the author never mentioned anti-Semitism, and even, oddly enough, when the author has explicitly disclaimed any intention of suggesting that the individual he criticized is anti-Semitic.

Bernstein goes on to call out Matt Yglesias for this behavior.
