                                  Answer:
   
   Criticism that habitually singles out Israel for criticism while
   ignoring far worse actions by other countries (especially other Middle
   Eastern countries) is generally perceived as anti-Jewish. Likening
   Israel to Nazi Germany, or to traditional anti-Jewish stereotypical
   behavior is another sure sign of Jew-baiting.
   
   It's also better to criticize within the Jewish community, rather than
   airing dirty laundry that can be twisted and used against us. Jewish
   newspapers are regularly filled with lively debate on Israel.
   
   See the superb essay "Judging Israel" by Charles Krauthammer, Time
   magazine, February 26, 1990.
