Ken Livingstone is right Israel is an apartheid state and are war criminals

Ken Livingstone Labour MP has been suspended for
 "anti-semitic" comments he made about Hitler 
being Zionist and for also being anti-Israel but being
 anti-Zionist and anti-Israel is NOT Anti-semitic

Wikipedia explains:

Anti-Zionism is opposition to Zionism, broadly defined in the modern era as the opposition to the ethnonationalist and political movement of Jews and Jewish culture that supports the establishment of a Jewish state as a Jewish homeland in the territory defined as the historic Land of Israel (also referred to as PalestineCanaan or the Holy Land) or to the modern State of Israel as defined as A Jewish and Democratic State.
The term is used to describe various religious, moral and political points of view, but their diversity of motivation and expression is sufficiently different that "anti-Zionism" cannot be seen as having a single ideology or source. According to many notable Jewish and non-Jewish sources, anti-Zionism has become a cover for modern-day antisemitism, a position that critics have challenged as a tactic to silence criticism of Israeli policies.

Jewish Anti-Zionism

Opposition to a Jewish state has changed over time and has taken on a diverse spectrum of religious, ethical and political positions.
There is a long tradition of Jewish anti-Zionism that has opposed the Zionist project from its origins. The Bundiststhe AutonomistsReform Judaism and the Age regarded both the rationale and territorial ambitions of Zionism as flawed. Orthodox Judaism, which grounds civic responsibilities and patriotic feelings in religion, was strongly opposed to Zionism because, though the two shared the same values, Zionism espoused nationalism in secular fashion, and used "Zion", "Jerusalem,"Land of Israel", "redemption" and "ingathering of exiles" as literal rather than sacred terms, endeavouring to achieve them in this world. Orthodox Jews also opposed the creation of a Jewish state prior to the appearance of the messiah, as contradicting divine will. By contrast, reform Jews rejected Judaism as a national or ethnic identity and renounced any messianic expectations of the advent of a Jewish state.
Other objections relate to the maintenance of a Jewish majority within the present state of Israel.
Post-Zionism a related term has been criticised as being equivalent to anti-Zionism.
The legitimacy of anti-Zionist views has been disputed to the present day, including the more recent and disputed relationship between anti-Zionism and antisemitism. Other views regarding the various forms of anti-Zionism have also been discussed and debated.
