Israeli flagA left-wing anti-Zionist movement is showing its true hatred toward the Jewish state.

"The mask is coming down," says Tammi Rossman Benjamin of the pro-Israel AMCHA Initiative.

At a college rally this month, Students for Justice in Palestine compared Zionism to "white supremacy" at the "Smashing Fascism" rally held at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign.

"We're really seeing the true colors of not only SJP," says Benjamin, "but I would say the anti-Zionist movement which has become profoundly clear that this is really a movement that is based in utter intolerance."

The hatred being fomented by anti-Semitics, such as a call to win "by any means necessary," makes it impossible to resolve anything through dialogue, the pro-Israel activist warns. The right to speak is also an issue, she adds. 

"But free speech is going to be clearly linked to the kind of behavior, the intolerant behavior, that we're seeing," she says.
