Let me get this right. You're saying that there are antisemitic groups that make up stories about Jewish conspiracies and cabals exerting secret disproportionately powerful control over US government policies, especially foreign affairs regarding Israel. Is that right?

And then you say that if anyone, even if not belonging to the antisemitic groups, thinks that Jewish American groups exert some degree of influence over foreign policy regarding Israel, that would make them antisemitic by virtue of some perception of similarity of their ideas? Or would the antisemitic qualification only apply to those who think that Jewish Americans are the main drivers (they exert more power than any other group in the US) of such policies?

Honestly, I'm just trying to understand the alleged complaint, because I didn't think that Glen was expressing an antisemitic view in his comment.
