Aaaaah! They have that one covered too.
Criticism of Jews = Anti-semitism
Criticism of Israel i general = Anti-semitism
Criticism of Zionists, who are of course "Jewish" = Anti-semitism too

He has been forced to apologise by the Liberal Democrat party - quite ironic they are called that and then slam one of their own for having an opinion on something.
It's not as if he actually lied or was particularly critical either, he just pointed out the obvious. But as to be expected, his party buckled under the weight of the Pro-Israel lobby and made him say sorry.
