Free Beacon – On Tuesday’s Washington Journal, Eli Lake of The Daily Beast shuts down an anti-Semitic caller in epic fashion.

CALLER: Good morning. Mr. Lake, Lindsey Graham, John McCain, these are all pretty much talking heads for the Dick Cheney neocon wing of ‘Let’s go to war for the greater glory and good of Israel.’ The United States has no dog in this fight. We’re broke, if you can remember that. We’ve got people who don’t have jobs who are starving in this country. I want everybody to please call and support the president’s deliberative process. Ask the president to get Congress started on jobs here.

    ==================================
    So the caller is against support for Israel..Howis that anti-Semitic ?? Maybe ot even anti-Israel just against US support for Israel.

    The one way to dilute the term meaning hatred against ourpeople is to call everything anti-Semitic when you mean anti-Israel
    …or more likely against some policies of Israel thant someone does not want the US to support.
    Was the caller really even against Israel or the present israeli leadership.
    Some Jews may equate Israel and the entirety of the Jewish people…most of the world sees a difference -as do most Jews.
