Anti-Semitism in Historical Perspective

By Samuel Schlafer

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1984

In an era when the Jewish people has chosen to make the State of Israel the central expression of Jewish consciousness, Jewish identity and Jewish experience, anti-Zionism is the equivalent of anti-Semitism because it questions the right of the Jewish people to define itself on its own terms. If Jews accept the proposition that the survival of Israel is crucial to Jewish survival and to their own understanding of what being Jewish means, then anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism.
