The staff hated their guts. No special reason. But in private they would just spit out the epithet "Israeli!" when a group was about to come through.
Some years ago I worked at a certain university in Cambridge, MA. A signifiant number of Israelis would come through from time to time, and officially they were most welcomed and honored.

I wrote a two-part article featuring Bill Moyers as a poster boy for liberal pseudo-intellectual Antisemitic bigotry and moral idiocy:
People like Moyers - and the crowd you’re talking about - love to speak in moral equivalences (”One man’s terrorist is another man’s freedom fighter”) and cultural pluralism (all cultures are equally good).
They are nothing but a bunch of contemptible fools.
In my life, I have seen so many different forms of Anti-Semitism, coming from so many different sources, cultures, and expressed in so many ways , sadly , by so many people you may have known for years, and could never have guessed, that , intelligent as they otherwise are, they still harbor this prejudice maybe bequeathed them by their parent’s old-world culture, that I am truly baffled every time I witness it. I am sorry for that run-on sentence.
Anti-Semitism really dies hard. It is alive and well everywhere you look. I never thought of myself as an alarmist or conspiracy kook, it’s just that I have seen this for SO long, that the deadly and apocalyptic jew-hatred of Islam seems almost anti-climactic.
