To Those Who Wonder if Reconstructionism is Anti-Semitic

Greetings in our Messiah. I must say that when I was told that reconstructionists are being accused of being antisemitic, I was somewhat taken aback. Why would anyone, aware of the hopes, let alone the principles, that guide and motivate reconstructionists, regard them as anti-semitic?

Perhaps it is because they have encountered certain reconstructionists who are, in fact, anti-semitic. Indeed, there are some who have written things about the Jewish people, especially their history, which ought to be regarded as stupid (at least), but even then not necessarily anti-Jewish. In any event it would be wrong to extrapolate from the one to the many. That would be, of course, an example of prejudice and bigotry of which I am sure, most dispensationalists would not like to be guilty.
