But you must forgive me if I suggest that you are perhaps misinterpreting some opinions posted on these pages as antisemitism, whereas they are simply critical of the actions of the state of Israel. I do not know if you are aware of this, but it is a particularly British characteristic to take the part of the underdog - and we see the Palestinians as facing unequal odds. As far as I can see, Americans tend to admire success, and will tend to similar admiration for victors - irrespective of the circumstances. Perhaps this might explain the alignment of the majority of Americans with the state of Israel. I am not criticising either stance, simply trying to explain them.
As to the legitimacy or otherwise of the designation Palestinian, it is of no importance to me. All I see is human beings who are being disadvantaged by a nation which enjoys greater force, and the support of the world's most powerful military nation. I am sympathetic to anyone in that situation. Little Palestinian children are no less little children, and as worthy of protection as little Israeli children.
And may I take this opportunity of thanking you for your polite and reasoned response to my post.
