I think that one of the more interesting points here is the shift from right to left, both politically and religiously, in negative attitudes to both Jews in general and Israel in particular. In Jewish memory anti-Semitism is associated with conservative Christianity, epitomized by Torquemada and the Spanish Inquisition. Today’s American Evangelicals are hard to squeeze into this scenario. Also, anti-Semitism has been traditionally associated with conservative politics. It still is so allied in some places, but it is now more commonly to be found on the left.
