Are you implying that all people with left leaning ideas are anti-semites?

But I think the Poll questions states "FAR left"

Far left is a ubiquitous term.  Compared to whom?  Let's just say socialist France is considered far left, it's still a broad stroke to also say they are anti semitic as well.  Let's say a particular country wants a policy of appeasement with Hamas, it doesn't necessarily mean they are against Jews.

Have you looked at http://www.paulbogdanor.com/secondholocaust.html. I just discovered it today. This is an interesting link also http://www.campaignforliberty.com/article.php?view=108. Reading this article was the motivating factor to my posting the poll.You're  also probably aware I hold a lot of libertarian views. I believe fascism to be just a form of right wing socialism for instance.MSM depicted Von Brunn as a neo nazi of the far right. I don't believe racial collectivism or anti semitism has much  in common with the  right.The right generally supports Israel while the left generally attacks Israel imho.

http://www.zeek.net/704debate/index.php?page=2  And if portraying the world’s only Jewish country as a demonic source of evil, campaigning for its destruction, or blaming its existence for antisemitism while making excuses for real antisemites are to qualify as “legitimate dissent,” then perhaps we really should be concerned for our collective sanity.

The far left is obsessed with supporting and championing anyone they fancy as being "the underdog." Therefore yes they see the Palestinians as being the innocent victims of Zionist aggression. So i guess that makes them anti-semitic. Jews are the whipping boys of the far left and right traditionally, although these days the protestant far right is siding with the Jews for Biblical reasons.

I guess individual freedom can scare some folks just like the historical mass murder of minorities practiced by collectivist statists scares me. Here's 2 links if you're interested http://mises.org/story/1937

Are you trying to insinuate all collectivists or socialists are anti-semites?

  I think you should read the links. Reality usually doesn't have much to do with anyone's personal motivations. I'm not discussing individuals anyway. I'm  discussing the consequences eventually precipitated by the  philosophies known as statism and collectivism. Socialism is just a form of collectivism.
