Maajid Nawaz raises a very important point about Israel and anti-Semitism.

Talking on his LBC show, Maajid talked about the moments when criticism of the state of Israel strays into the realms of anti-Semitism.

"Criticising Israeli policy is not anti-Semitism.

H"owever questioning Israel's right to exist, denying the Jewish people the right to self-determination, while simultaneously holding a cognitive dissonance and affirming every other people's right to self-determination in the world and singling out Israel [is]." 

"By saying Israel doesn't have the right to exist, that can well be anti-Semitic, because what are your motivations? People who question Israel's right to exist – which was founded in 1948 – while at the same time you acknowledge Pakistan has the right to exist? [Pakistan] was founded in 1947 for precisely the same reasons."

"[If] you are going to say Israel doesn't have the right to exist – which by the way the UN has approved – I'd say that's modern anti-Semitism."
