The British rabbi and philosopher Jonathan Sackshar produced a video in which he talks about the connection between Judaism and Israel. In the video, Sacks shows how anti-Semitism has evolved throughout history. In the Middle Ages, Jews were hated for their religion, in the 18th and 19th centuries they were hated for their ethnicity and today they are hated for their nation state – Israel.
– Anti-Zionism, to deny the right of the Jews to their only collective home, by misrepresenting Judaism, is the new anti-Semitism. It is as toxic and dangerous as the old anti-Semitism, Sacks says in the video.
