British Historian Simon Schama: Anti-Semitism Causes Anti-Zionism

Well, that's one way to look at it. Another way--my way--is to call it to get rid of the whole chicken-and-egg conundrum (i.e. which came first, the anti-Semitism or the anti-Zionism?) and to see it all as part and parcel of what I call Zionhass, the Jew-hate of our time. This up-to-date hatred, which is as deranged and over-the-top as previous incarnations of Jew-hate, incorporates and is often driven by a hatred for Israel, the Jewish state. Thus, hatred of Israel leads to hatred of Jews, which leads to hatred of Israel, which leads to hatred of Jews...in one seamless Mobius strip of hatred.
