Anti-Semitism label doesn’t always work

Re Critique of Israel lobby dangerousl­y misleading Jan. 5

In attacking one of the most exquisitel­y researched books on the subject of the Israeli lobby, Leslie Gelb accuses the authors of “puzzlingly shoddy scholarshi­p” and anti-Semitism.

The father of Zionist Israel said, “If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. . . . They see but one thing: We have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?”

I wonder if Gelb would label David Ben-Gurion anti-Semitic as well.
