10 ways to criticise Israel without being anti-semitic

A useful article on how one can criticise without being anti-Semitic. Their 10 guidelines are:

  1. Acknowledge Israel and Israelis exist
  2. Jews are not the same as Israel
  3. Criticise specific policies
  4. Make a fair attempt to understand Israeli policies
  5. Speak from a place of accuracy, knowledge and context
  6. Work towards solutions, not the destruction of Israel
  7. Recognise the conflict is not one-sided
  8. Avoid known racist tropes about Jews
  9. Recognise Jewish indigeneity to Israel
  10. Don’t blame Israel for the world’s ills

What is striking about this list is how a certain MPs in the NZ Parliament don’t come even close to half these points.
