Israel’s prime minister-elect Benjamin Netanyahu fears that anti-Semitism has turned into a more subtle hatred that has allowed people to normalize it more easily.

“I would say that today’s anti-Semitism has taken a new pernicious form, because it is not fashionable to say that you are an anti-Semite,” Netanyahu said during an interview with The Blaze. “You say, ‘Well, I’m an anti-Zionist.’ You don’t even say, ‘I’m anti-Israel,’ you say, ‘I’m an anti-Zionist.'”

“Well, I’m not against the Jews, I just don’t think they should have a state of their own,” he clarified. “It’s like, I’m not anti-American, I just don’t think you should be an American.”

Netanyahu secured a third run as Israel’s prime minister after his coalition won a majority in November elections. His return to power comes at a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise around the world: Reported anti-Semitic incidents in the United States hit an “all-time high” in 2021, averaging seven incidents per day, according to Anti-League. of defamation (ADL).

The anti-Semitism discussion returned to the headlines after Ye, aka Kanye West, threatened to say “Death with 3 on JEWISH PEOPLE,” then claimed he couldn’t be anti-Semitic because “black people are actually Jews” and hinted that the Jews “have played with me.” And he tried to eliminate anyone who opposed his agenda.”

“Each generation produces its new brand of anti-Semitism, sometimes alongside the previous one,” Netanyahu explained. “The Jews are accused by the communists of being capitalists, by the capitalists of being communists… It is as old as time.”

“But what has changed is that antisemitism. It comes and goes,” she added. “What has changed is the ability of the Jewish people to defend themselves against anti-Semitism, and especially against violent anti-Semitism.”

In his talk with Beck, Netanyahu went further, saying that people “blame the Jews categorically, which is absurd.”

“You wouldn’t do that with any group. Anti-Semites are just anti-Jews… It just so happens to be a definition of complete denial of the Jewish people, per se,” he clarified. “That is all.”
