The Israeli government, together with major Jewish organizations in the US, has worked to change the public perception antisemitism. In the past, antisemitism was simply hatred of Jews. Now added to this is the idea that criticism of Israel is a new form of antisemitism. This campaign has been largely successful…witness that fact that 27 states have passed laws criminalizing BDS (Boycott, Divestment, and Sanction) activities.
