A trick we always use

On 14 August 2002, former Israeli minister, Shulamit Aloni, said this on the US news programme, Democracy Now:
"It is a trick we always use it. When, from Europe, someone is criticising Israel WE BRING UP THE HOLOCAUST. When, in this country (USA), people are criticising Israel THEN THEY ARE ANTISEMITIC.

And the organisation is strong and has a lot of money and the ties between Israel and the American Jewish establishment are very strong and THEY ARE STRONG IN THIS COUNTRY...

THEY HAVE POWER, MONEY, MEDIA and other things and their attitude is ISRAEL MY COUNTRY RIGHT OR WRONG... THEY ARE NOT READY TO HEAR CRITICISM. It is very easy to blame people who criticise certain acts of the Israeli government as antisemitic and to bring up the Holocaust and the suffering of the Jewish people and THAT JUSTIFIES EVERYTHING WE DO TO THE PALESTINIANS."
