Zionhass In France

Israel-hate, the Jew-hate of our time, is making life difficult bordering on the unbearable for France's Jews:
We are still a long way from the Dreyfus Affair, but there’s a new wave of anti-Semitism in France, which is often packaged as anti-Zionism, but employs all the classical tropes. It is easy to forget which kind of anti-Semitism is which.
That's because the "old" Jew-hate and the "new" Jew-hate--"anti-Zionism"--are really one and the same. It is safe to say that the only reason "classical tropes" didn't target Israel/Zionism, the focus of today's obsessive Jew-hate, is because there was no Jewish state back then. That being so, "anti-Zionism" is but the latest manifestation/mutation of that old familiar hatred.
