I chose not to attend because I did not want to appear as endorsing Benjamin Netanyahu, who was to be giving a speech at the ceremony. By the same token, I am not part of the BDS movement and do not endorse it. Like many Israelis and Jews around the world, I can be critical of the leadership in Israel without wanting to boycott the entire nation. I treasure my Israeli friends and family, Israeli food, books, art, cinema, and dance. Israel was created exactly 70 years ago as a haven for refugees from the Holocaust. But the mistreatment of those suffering from todays atrocities is simply not in line with my Jewish values. Because I care about Israel, I must stand up against violence, corruption, inequality, and abuse of power.
Something tells me she has not been paying particularly close attention to what is transpiring in Israel.

All based on the delusion that the State of Israel could ever be accepted as just another secular nation-state.

(I don't have 'Hobbies.' I'm developing a robust Post-Apocalyptic skill set.)
Portman and other self-important Leftists always seem to see a strong Israel as an evil entity. Witness her idiotic reference to Netanyahu. He is a strong leader of Israel, so he has to be evil.
This poor little cupcake has no idea how strong Israel has to be right now to defeat the desires of terrorist groups.
The intellect of a Leftist stops growing at about 15. They fall in love with the idea of Leftist's
promises lies and never grow out of it. Those that do, shun Leftist ideology.
Our schools are dead set at turning out as many Portmans as they can. Amazingly enough, some kids are too smart for them.
Isn't it interesting how the Left portray children as more intelligent than adults, and yet the Leftist adults are trying to propagandize that very age group. Leftists are first and foremost liars, many even to themselves.

It focuses its fire on Israels elected leadership, while evincing love for its people
A very illogical statement, and lacks even common sense.
You can't support the people of Israel, while also condemning their collective decisions about who their leaders are.
If the leadership is being condemned, then, whoever does the condemning is also condemning the people. Simple logic.
And, the elections in Israel are of the democratic type, not like in dictatorships where there is only one "candidate" and the people don't have choices; and the left shows favoritism towards that kind of tyrannical ruler while condemning the democratically elected people that the people decided to lead them.
Again, the liberal elite show their utter stupidity in relation to their politics and biases.

Does being against the State of Israel automatically make you antisemitic?

Not automatically. Maybe he just didnt think it all the way through. But when you think of it, the conclusion is positive. One whos against Israel, is also against the existance of the Jewish people.
When Jews didnt have a state of their own, there were pogroms, genocides, and a lot of discrimination against them. Seeing the current antisemitism in Europe and other countries doesnt make me think that anything has changed.
If Jews were to receive another piece of land instead of the land of Israel (like Uganda that was offered as an option decades before Israel was established), would the locals population would have welcomed the new immigrants? Would the Jews would have been welcomed ANYWHERE?
Theres no place for Jews on this earth, except for the land of Israel, and even this land, which is our origin land, did not come easy.
So basically one who wants Israel gone, also wants the Jewish people gone.
