Is there a country in the world that attracts so much criticism as Israel? Studies consistently show Israel to be one of the most disliked nations in the world (along with Iran and North Korea).
But how much of this is to do with genuine concern about Israel’s actions, and how much is actually a cover for the age-old hatred of the Jews? Mehdi Hasan of The Intercept and the Israeli historian Ilan Pappé go head to head with Times columnist Melanie Phillips and Israeli former Member of the Knesset Einat Wilf in this Intelligence quared debate.
Anti-Zionism is opposition to Zionism. The term is broadly defined in the modern era as opposition to the state of Israel, or prior to 1948, its establishment, as well as to the political movement of Jews to self-determination.
The movement has attracted supporters and controversy, including within the broader Jewish community.
Critics of the movement have charged it is a cover for modern-day anti-Semitism. They also say it may be motivated by prejudices against Jewish people.
