Although many claim that the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s definition of antisemitism silences Palestinian voices, this is not the case. The definition is a guideline which has been adopted by many nations and universities around the world, to understand and address the rising rates of antisemitism.
Anti-Israel detractors claim that the IHRA silences them because it defines certain elements of their rhetoric as antisemitism. However — unfairly demonizing and delegitimizing Israel, using antisemitic tropes, and substituting Zionists in those tropes instead of Jews — all fall under the IHRA definition.
Clearly, antisemites and anti-Zionist activists just want a free license to spread antisemitic rhetoric under the guise of legitimate criticism of Israel.
