Gotta say, the idea that antisemitism is "the driving force behind the anti-Iraq War movement" is crap, and to promote that idea here is irresponsible.--WJThomas 14:07, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

The cites on the page say so. And not just the anti-War movement, the 9/11 Truthers, too. RobS 14:14, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
The cites may say so but it's still crap. For the vast majority of Americans opposed either to the war in general or to the way it's been conducted, it has nothing to do with Israel. Murray 14:17, 19 April 2007 (EDT)
Mel Gibson expressed it all. RobS 14:21, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Please express a thoughtful and non-sarcastic opinion on the topic, Peter. --Ed Poor 14:29, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

The relevance of Mel Gibson escapes me entirely. Murray 14:24, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

When he was arrested for a DUI he stated that all the wars were caused by Jews. And personally, I'm anti war, but not anti Jew (grandma would kill me). Czolgolz 15:45, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

It was the timing of Gibson's remarks, coming in the midst of mid-term elections where the Iraq War,Israel's operation Lebanon and the rumors of a strike against Iran were big headlines. Gibson expressed what was on most anti-War protesters minds. RobS 16:16, 19 April 2007 (EDT)

Israel and the Iraq War

Cut from article:

Some supporters of the anti-Iraq War movement have been accused of anti-Semitism, including a group known as ANSWER-Act Now to Stop War and End Racism, one of the first organizations formed to protest the policies of the Bush administration. [1] [2]
