Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:
• Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
Examples of the ways in which antisemitism manifests itself with regard to the state of Israel taking into account the overall context could include:
• Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavor.
Some on this blog try to argue that the use of the word "could" implies some doubt: "it could but then again it could not"
That is clearly nonsense. Why have a Definition and then rule everything out?
The "could" is unconditional. It used in the same way as for example a mother saying to a child "You could go and wash your hands before tea" meaning "Go and wash your hands"
There really is no ambiguity. It takes an antisemite to argue that there is....
Advis3r - Your earlier comment about this was absolutely correct
