Israel is a terrorist state and the United Nations are aware of the 65 breeches of International Law of war crimes. 
Excellent statement. MSP Jackson Carlaw statement that refusing to sign up to the IHRA means 'denying the rights of Jews to self-determination' demonstrates that Jackson Carlaw is in need of a few lessons on what is and is not anti-Semitism.

Jews are only entitled to self-determination if they are a nation separate from those amongst whom they live. If Carlaw is suggesting that Jews are a separate nation then he is subscribing to one of the main planks of anti-Semitic ideology. Being Jewish is a matter of religion not race or nation.

The IHRA of course has nothing to do with anti-Semitism and everything to do with a defence of Israel and Zionism.  Israel is the most racist state in the world.  Where Palestinians are treated as guests at best. Where thousands of Jewish settlers march to the chant of 'Death to the Arabs' where 93% of Israel is off limits to Israeli Palestinians. 

In short not only is Jackson Carlaw anti-Semitic it would appear that he is an all round racist.

I can only suggest that he reads the new Jerusalem Declaration on AntiSemitism https://jerusalemdeclaration.org/ which, unlike the IHRA, actually is about anti-Semitism.

I was living there, 
Those kibbutz settlements are the dream of the Zionist state, they have communist principles,
All the money and real estate belong to the kibbutz Council, the children do no live with their parents from birth but in a children house (property of the kibbutz).
