The Israeli justice minister said in an interview that European leaders who criticize Israel are being anti-Semitic, just like their predecessors.

Criticizing the state of Israel and its government in any form is the new anti-Semitism, Israel’s Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked told The Washington Post in an interview Wednesday, accusing European leaders of replacing old anti-Semitic tendencies with a new format.

“In the past, we saw European leaders speaking against the Jews. Now, we see them speaking against Israel. It is the same anti-Semitism of blood libels, spreading lies, distorting reality and brainwashing people into hating Israel and the Jews,” Shaked said in an interview with The Washington Post.

European leaders have also expressed support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel, which according to her also constitutes anti-Semitism.
