Is this really the scope of your argument that anyone who dares confront your anti-wisenthal campaign are written off as philosemites? the opposite of an antisemite.... if we follow this crude logic of yours does this then make you an antisemite?Philosemites also assume that the autobiography of an Estonian policeman who fought against the philosemitic Soviet occupiers must necessarily be a "revision" of history.
I gather (and hope) that you would take offence of such accusations - just as someone, myself included would take offence of your accusations that we defend Wiesenthal out of a philosemitic view. I have no particular favouritism or dislike towards jews or any other race including my own. And neither are my views on wiesenthal shapped by such particular likes or dislikes.

It is perfectly obvious to me why Jewish activists and malevolent philosemites would consider an anti-Soviet patriot as ipso facto a war criminal. After all he was fighting against a power ruled by malevolent philosemites.
As you well know it was at the heart of nazi ideology to link jewism with communism - Judeo-bolshevism as it was called. So when you claim that the soviet union was ruled by 'malevolent philosemites' shall I assume that you really mean Judeo-Bolshevism? A person bearing your name, occupation and origin seem to have been quoted a number of times on different holocaust denial sites:
Shall I understand this quote (original from the Forward march 10) that you sense a jewish conspiracy against other nations of the soviet union, and therefore that communism was a vehicle for jewism? Sorry for dragging this into the debate, but when you argue about philosemitism it is relevant to know what you mean.
"It is legitimate to adopt a critical attitude toward the relatively large number of Jews who particularly in the first decade after the Bolshevik revolution collaborated with the Soviet Government in the persecution of other peoples."
