"I'm not anti-Semitic, I am anti-Zionist"

"I'm not anti-Semitic, I am anti-Zionist" - That's the line I see all the time on Twitter and hear in the media. Well you tolerant people, here's what Dr Martin Luther King had to say on the matter:
"When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You're talking anti-Semitism!"
Here's what I wrote  about this almost exactly a year ago and here's the Huffington Post today. I raely agree with the Huffington Post, but in this instance they are correct.

Here's another Martin Luther King quote via that Huffington Post artcile:
"Peace for Israel means security, and we must stand with all our might to protect its right to exist, its territorial integrity. I see Israel as one of the great outposts of democracy in the world, and a marvelous example of what can be done, how desert land can be transformed into an oasis of brotherhood and democracy. Peace for Israel means security and that security must be a reality."
Dr. King said this on March 25, 1968, two weeks before his death.

Interesting: another possible conspiracy, like the JFK assassination and the investigation, that of MLK was a complete horlicks (even down to shots from another place not where they said JER was etc. There is the racist possibility, the communism possibility and the Muslim (Malcolm X/NOI etc) possibility.

Sorry for all the TLAs (Three Letter Acronyms, LOL)
