"Not Necessarily Antisemitic"

few, if any, Pakistani militants have been known until now specifically to target Israelis. I say, Israelis rather than Jews because the single surviving terrorist noted that they chose Chabad House to avenge the suffering of the Palestinians. Therefore, the attack was anti-Israeli, though not necessarily antisemitic.
Richard Silverstein at Comment is Free doesn't think that targeting a Jewish Community Centre for a massacre is antisemitic.

Well quite! As the man explains, it wasn't actually Israel that made a mess of partitioning India, inadvertently drawing the line to the west rather than the east of Kashmir. Or something.

As long as they massacre people from other religious groups as well, I suppose it counts as 'equality'. The logic looks fine to me!
