A "Jew who figured out a way to survive the Holocaust"

What is anti-Semitism today? I don't know, but here is at least some evidence of my developing theory that modern anti-Semitism involves attacking everyone who criticizes Israel as anti-Semitic. (Remember that the majority of voices in Western media that are critical of Israel are JEWISH voices.)

Read here about how Tony Blankley (of the Washington Times) has attacked George Soros (with Sean Hannity's enthusiastic agreement) as "a Jew who figured out a way to survive the Holocaust," and as a Jew who "blames the Jews for anti-Semitism." What exactly does this mean? That Jews who did NOT survive the Holocaust, who instead were brutally killed, were the only REAL Jews during the Second World War? And that their deaths are to be celebrated because they have been redeemed by the foundation of the holy state of Israel? That is what this means. And I'm afraid that this way of thinking is related to the American fetishization of the Holocaust, to the American insistence that it is THE genocide in human history, to the American idea of Israel as an inherently good cause to which Christians ought to give their "help," to the building of an American Holocaust museum on the Mall (as opposed, say, to a slavery museum).
