Bethany’s parents would do well to heed the advice of Evelyn Beatrice Hall (biographer of Voltaire) who said: I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.
Kudos to you Bethany. When will people stop conflating criticism of Israeli public policy with anti-Semitism? Israeli public policy is bad. Anti-semitism is bad. The ability to criticize a government, any government, is a foundation of freedom. One is not unpatriotic for criticizing the US government, and one is not anti-Semitic for opposing Israeli policies and actions towards Palestinians.
