3D Test of Anti-Semitism: Demonization, Double Standards, Delegitimization - Natan Sharansky

It is utterly disgusting, the level of Antisemitism I see on Facebook, 
leveled by so-called Christians, who do no more than expose their immeasurable ignorance!
Best definition of anti-Semitism I've heard!!

"Nevertheless, we must be clear and outspoken in exposing the new anti-Semitism. I believe that we can apply a simple test - I call it the "3D" test - to help us distinguish legitimate criticism of Israel from anti-Semitism.

The first "D" is the test of demonization. When the Jewish state is being demonized; when Israel's actions are blown out of all sensible proportion; when comparisons are made between Israelis and Nazis and between Palestinian refugee camps and Auschwitz - this is anti- Semitism, not legitimate criticism of Israel.

The second "D" is the test of double standards. When criticism of Israel is applied selectively; when Israel is singled out by the United Nations for human rights abuses while the behavior of known and major abusers, such as China, Iran, Cuba, and Syria, is ignored; when Israel's Magen David Adom, alone among the world's ambulance services, is denied admission to the International Red Cross - this is anti-Semitism.

The third "D" is the test of delegitimization: when Israel's fundamental right to exist is denied - alone among all peoples in the world - this too is anti-Semitism." - Natan Sharansky
[ETA: in June 2006, MDA was officially recognized by the Intern't Red Cross. This article predates that date]
