Anti-Zionism Is Anti-Semitism, Secretary of State Pompeo Tells AIPAC

(State Department) Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told AIPAC on Monday: "Every decent human being has the responsibility to fight anti-Semitism. It's an affront to religious liberty. It denies the rights of Jews to worship their God. It attacks what it means to be Jewish, ethnically and religiously. But Americans have a special responsibility to combat this scourge, because religious freedom sits at the core of our founding. It's in our Bill of Rights as the very first freedom." "The United States stands with the Jewish people and Israel in the fight against the world's oldest bigotry. This bigotry is taking on an insidious new form in the guise of 'anti-Zionism.'...But criticizing the very right to exist of Israel is not acceptable....Anti-Zionism is anti-Semitism."
