An The Definition of Anti-Semitism describes many instances of anti-semitism that have occurred in recent years and examines why they constitute anti-Jewish hatred as the meaning of the term has evolved with the times. Anti-semitism since the founding of Israel has also been complicated by the question as to whether criticism of the Jewish state constitutes anti-semetism, and under what circumstances is it acceptable. One example, Marcus discusses in detail, is the Boycott, Disinvestment and Sanction movement (BDS).

Kenneth Marcus is Founder and president of the Louis D. Brandeis Center for Human Rights Under Law.
