So the anti-semites are out in force. Sorry to burst your bubble, but the Khazar theory of European Jewry was soundly disproven by that dreadful jewish science DNA analysis (see Frederick Sanger). Go back to reading your protocols of the elders of zion for more up to date information.

By the way, the English are not 'known as anti-semetic' as far as I know,

but they don't have the best reputation around the world
due to a number of reasons:
1. Stereotypes (tea drinking, jolly old rich chaps)
2. Colonialism (remember England was at the head of the British Empire in it's heyday, the Queens/Kings have always been English and a lot of people outside England who have been to nations that have become independent can see what colonialism was like)
3. Abuse of human rights, aggressiveness (England have never been viewed very favourably by countries that have been in wars with them. Also, England's human rights record is by far one of the worst.)
England took advantage of it's dominant position, for a time, and nowadays people are wondering why the heck it's still such a rich country with such a (subjectively) high standard of living. The US is viewed in a similar light.
Oh, also the lads from English stag parties get so drunk they can hardly stand, then vandalize countries, start fights with locals and piss on people's doorsteps. They're not known for attractive behaviour.
about one-third of incidents reported to the CST were rejected as being ”antisemitic” because they appeared on investigation, specifically anti-Israeli or merely critical of Israel without the use of antisemitic terms or images. An example of a rejected report was one of a car vandalised because it had an Israeli flag sticker on the back window.
When considering that more than 1 in 3 reports is rejected, we can see how scrupulous the CST has been to avoid allowing people to conflate criticism of Israel or Zionism in general with antisemitism.

Fury as Israel president claims English are 'anti-semitic'
(visit the link for the full news article)
Israel's president has accused the English of being anti-semitic and claimed that MPs pander to Muslim voters.
Shimon Peres said England was "deeply pro-Arab ... and anti-Israeli", adding: "They always worked against us."
He added: "There is in England a saying that an anti-Semite is someone who hates the Jews more than is necessary."

Answer me this: if practicing Jews don't accept Christ, then they're damned to hell (according to the fundamentalists). Correct? So why fly the flag of a nation that has a religious belief that are related to, but very different from their own. I cannot get any of the fundamentalists to explain this coherently. I suspect tha they secretly think that American Evangelicals are the 'Real Jews' or some nonsense and that any attempt by secularists and progressives to keep the theocracy in check gets them hallucinating that they're characters from 'Schindler's List'. #ing bizarre. Only in America.

Who honestly cares what some goof-ball politician from Israel says about the UK anyway? Just let morons be morons.
A Semitic person is someone who is either Arab or Jewish. So if anyone is a raving bigoted Anti-Semite, it's Pires.
While the term's etymology might suggest that antisemitism is directed against all Semitic peoples, the term was coined in the late 19th century in Germany as a more scientific-sounding term for Judenhass ("Jew-hatred"), and that has been its normal use since then.
