Dear Brother / Sister,
Anti-Semitism: It means to bear enmity against the Jewish race. Such an ideology is wrong. It is not right to bear enmity against any race without differentiating between the rightful and the wrong. Such a view does not fit Islam or humanity.
Anti-Zionism: It means to bear enmity against an anarchic Jewish organization which originated among the Jewish people and which asserts the superiority of their race and hence views every unlawful means as legitimate to dominate the world in order to command all the humanity. It is a natural right of everybody to stand up against such an ideology.
Anti-Zionism is true to the degree that anti-Semitism is wrong.
