The definition of antisemitism was vastly extended to cover the modern way of expressing it.
"* Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour.
* Applying double standards by requiring of it behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
* Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g. claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.
* Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
* Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the State of Israel."

Anti-zionism is clearly exposed as antisemitism, zionism being the only expression of Jewish people's right to self determination.
Comparisons of Jews with Nazis, Gaza as a "concentration camp" (v2.0, no doubt) are also included.
'Explaining' the rise in antisemitism (even stopping short of justifying it) by the actions of the State of Israel, all that is now, and justly, called antisemitism.
