    Of course we all really know that being anti-Zionist is not the same as being anti-Semitic, don't we?

    Depends on your definition of "we." Ahmadinejad, at least as far as his public persona, seems to be both. Although I think it's mostly shock-jocking and antics for attention. Or more to the point, I take Iranian suppression of Iranians much more seriously than I do a real threat by them to the world outside of Iran.

    My view that I expect Israel to stop committing war crimes and atrocities and make an honest attempt to live in peace with the Arabs, am in danger of being viewed as treasonous by much of the American establishment, but am certainly no anti-Semite. Depending on the strictness of any anti-Zionist-detector test... well....

    Would you expect them to make an honest attempt to live in peace with the Persians, too? ;)

    Yes, although to their credit they aren't in the business of killing so many Persians today. ;)

    (And yes, unlike Alan Jackson, I don't watch CNN and I do know the difference between Iraq and Iran. ;) )

    It's probably only a matter of finding an opportunity.
