What is anti-semitism and what is legitimate debate about Israel?

"She is, in the words of her many admirers, the 'mater familias of London's liberal intelligentsia'. This weekend, however, Mary-Kay Wilmers, editor of the London Review of Books, is on the defensive - speaking out for the first time in an escalating transatlantic row that has seen her respected journal accused of promoting anti-Semitism".

So commences an article in the Guardian Unlimited.

What is it all that about? you might well ask. It all stems from an article published recently in the London Review of Books dealing with what was described as the Israel Lobby in the USA. Since publication debate has raged about and ranged from whether what was being put forward by the authors has any validity to accusations of anti-semitism.
