Jerusalem councilwoman Rachel Azaria posts on her Facebook page about an incident of anti-Israel hatred she personally encountered on a Manhattan subway.
“In Manhattan, on the subway with my husband and four children. My husband tells me something, and suddenly an older man turns to me and says in English: Are you Israeli? I ask him why he was asking, and he replies and asks: ‘You’re Israeli?’ ‘Yes,’ I answered. ‘Go away, go way, no one wants you here,’ [he says].
“This has never happened to me before, not in the United States and definitely not in New York,” she writes. “In Europe we’re used to it, but in New York?”
“So behold: anti-Israelism, a new type of anti-Semitism. And the truth is that this formulation of ‘go away’ is a classic formulation of anti-Semitism.”
