Anti-Semitism and Islamophobia both exist. They don’t operate in the same way. You can’t fight Islamophobia with anti-semitism. You can’t fight anti-semitism with Islamophobia. You have to learn what they look like and fight BOTH. Jews have EVERY RIGHT to protest Holocaust Denial. Muslims have EVERY RIGHT to protest the depiction of the Prophet Muhammad. The fact that France has laws against Holocaust denial but not against depiction of the Prophet Muhammad is evidence of the presence of Islamophobia, it is NOT evidence of an absence of anti-semitism. These two hatreds are not Zero Sum. To act like they are is to pit Jews and Muslims against each other. It is trying to fight one oppression by enforcing the other.
