Why is criticising Israel considered antisemitic by the right? Isn't conflating Israel and Jews all the time antisemitic?
It's like saying criticism of Saudi Arabia or Iran is Islamophobic, or you hate ordinary American or Russian people if you criticise their governments for doing shitty things.

It suits the Right to portray anti-Zionism as antisemitism because they can falsely smear those on the Left who oppose Zionism and Israel's theft of Arab lands as "antisemitic". But there are orthodox JEWISH groups, Jewdas in the UK being one, that oppose Zionism and Israel's theft of Arab lands so doing that can't possibly be antisemitic.

It is not a matter of right or left.When are falsehoods against Israel typically due to anti-Semitism, and how can you recognise "Palestinian" Arab Falsehood-Propaganda?
UNSUBSTANTIATED-allegations against Israel that insult the reader’s intelligence by being typically-provided with:
No detail, no objective-sources; zero evidence.
From this we can also conclude that the antisemitic psychological-desire for the genocide of the Jewish People is presenting as the desire to destroy Israel (see example questions at end of answer).
Contributors often claim they are only “criticizing”, Israel, but really mean: “make unsubstantiated-accusations against”, which they choose to do against Israel, and not other countries !
Supporting the Palestinian war of ethnic-hatred against Israeli Jews is anti-Semitism:
> The Palestinians want ALL the land of Israel (to which they have zero-verifiable claims), to expel or murder, the Jews as is shown by what is taught by the Palestinian education system and from the “Palestinian National Charter”
> Supporting anti-Semitism, is anti-Semitism; pretending otherwise constitutes a form of appeasement of the Palestinians; appeasement is a failed policy.
The "Palestinian" Arabs typically find their propaganda is “pushing at an open door”, many being Willing to believe them while Unwilling to verify if it is factual, due to anti-Semitism (about which many are in denial).
Nor therefore do such people require any reasonable or proper moral standard from the “Palestinian” Arabs.
Supporting Palestinian nationalism would cease to be antisemitism, only once it ceases its policy to destroy Israel and expel or murder its Jews.
Supporting anti-Semitism is anti-Semitism:
The Palestinian Education Authority teaches Holocaust-Denial and admiration of the Nazis - Copy to your address bar:
Supporting anti-Semitism is anti-Semitism:
No evidence Israel targets civilians, but the "Palestinian" Arabs target Israeli Jewish civilians as policy including children (see below) - No wonder anti-Semites display such emotional-support for the “Palestinian” Arabs !
The Palestinians cynically whitewash their anti-Jewish hate-war as:
“uprising”, “defence”, “desperation”, “struggle”, “resistance”.
Palestinians are paid a reward-“pension” to murder Jewish Israelis including children:
Palestinian anti-Israel hate-propaganda often of stock-phrases, seems repetitively-produced, “copy-pasted” as if it originated “robotically” from a factory-floor.
Dear reader: Have you tried getting pro-"Palestinian" Arabs to prove either their false-allegations against Israel or their false-claims on Israel or Jerusalem, with objective-evidence?
Collected from posted-questions and answers from anti-Semitic (posing as anti-Zionist / anti-Israel) contributors, Israel / the Jewish People apparently-manage to do all the following, being falsehoods alleged with zero-evidence:
“Oppression” / “(mis) treatment” / “discrimination” / “racism” / “persecution” / “being treated as 2nd class”:
[That is how the "Palestinian" Arabs falsely-complain about Israeli security measures, while not mentioning they are due to the Palestinian on-going war of ethnic-hatred against Israeli Jews including children - see source above. Are Palestinian frustration at Israeli security obstructing Palestinian terrorism].
Likewise: “Atrocities” against / “brutality” / “cruelty” to / “Holocaust” against / “human rights abuse” against / “Nazi-like behaviour” towards / “plight” of / “victimization” of / “war crimes” against.
That Israeli economic measures (aka “blockade”) on Gaza allegedly-is: “collective punishment”:
[While failing to mention the economic measures are by both Egypt and Israel; by Israel due to (indiscriminate) Palestinian rocket attacks on Israeli cities].
That Palestinian Gaza rocket and mortar attacks on Israel are allegedly-due to the Israeli economic measures on Gaza:
[Such is "Palestinian" Arab reverse-fact propaganda, because the Israeli economic measures on Gaza are due to Palestinian rocket and mortar attacks on Israel].
The use for propaganda of normally neutral-terms for falsely-implying wrongdoing by Israel, for example:
“actions” against, “behaviour” towards, “doing” to, “(mis-) treatment” of.
“Ethnic-cleansing” / “intentional-displacement” / “eviction” / “expulsion”:
[Presumably when taking time-off from doing all the: “Actions” , “Atrocities”, “brutality”, “cruelty”, “Holocausting”, “human rights abuse”, “mistreatment”, “Nazism”, “oppression”, “victimization”, “war crimes”, etc.
No evidence of any Israeli policy to expel Arabs, but the “Palestinian” Arab wars have always had the expulsion (or murder) of the Jews as primary-objective, as in the “Palestinian National Charter” - Example: All Jews expelled in 1948 from East Jerusalem by the Jordanian illegal-occupiers, below.]
[Presumably when taking time-off from doing the “genocide”.
Having expelled any Jewish population from all areas under "Palestinian" Arab control, the Palestinians then falsely-claimed “Apartheid” against Israel !]
Gaza allegedly-being a:
“concentration camp” / “ghetto” / Nazi “Warsaw Ghetto” / “prison” / “Penal colony” / “P.O.W. Camp”:
[If so, a rather unusual one, able to fire numerous rockets whenever the fancy takes it, at the cities of those it considers its enemies.]
“Genocide” / “Holocaust”; also: “Slaughtering”, “murdering”, “victimization”:
[Presumably when taking time-off from doing the: “Apartheid”, “Ghettos”, “Ethnic-cleansing”, etc.
Terms that are reverse-fact propaganda, as Israel does not target civilians, while the "Palestinian Authority" pays a reward-“pension” for murder of Jewish Israelis including children - see above source. Remember: To qualify to be murdered by a Palestinian, you must be Jewish and there is no lower age restriction - Look up the murder of Hallel Yaffa Ariel aged 13.]
“Stealing” / “Colonizing”:
[Jewish ancestral land, since all the disputed areas are on land of the former Jewish Kingdoms of Judah / Israel ! Map of Jewish Hasmonean Kingdom of Judah including the West Bank, Gaza, and Golan Heights, with its capital of (what is now EAST) Jerusalem / “Old City”; between 110 BCE / 754 BH and 63 BCE / 706 BH:
[Jewish ancestral land - see above!]
[Jewish ancestral land - see above!]
Building allegedly illegal homes (aka “settlements”) on the West Bank. That such homes / settlements obstruct a two-state solution:
[The Palestinians agreed to the Oslo Accords under which Israel retains full control over West Bank Area C, due to Palestinian breach of the Accords by continuing terrorism and by claiming ALL the land. Oslo permits the Israeli homes / “settlements” in West Bank Area C. All the West Bank is land of prior Jewish Kingdoms of Judah / Israel. Further, the Palestinians do not believe in any two-state solution - Clear from their education system and National Charter.]
Also building allegedly “illegal” homes (aka “settlements”) in the ancestral Jewish capital of “East Jerusalem” aka “Old City”:
[The false allegation of “illegality” a travesty of modern-history, as in 1948 the Jordanian-occupiers expelled all the Jews from East Jerusalem:]
That Israel has “constantly-expanding” borders:
[Reverse-fact propaganda, since as an attempt at “land for peace” Israel gave the "Palestinian" Arabs autonomy of 40% of the West Bank and the whole of Gaza under the Oslo Accords.]
That Israel is “in breach of international law / laws”:
[The U.N. has a built-in pro-Arab bias due to a block-vote of up to 56 countries.
By International constitutional law, laws must not be passed intrinsically-unjust, persecuting a minority .e.g. the Nazi Nuremberg Laws.]
Meanwhile pro-"Palestinian" Arabs also allege:
That the Jewish People are not really Jewish:
[To dishonestly evade the noble Quran’s recognition that the Land of Israel is given by Allah / God to the Jewish People (noble Quran: Sura “Al-Maaida” 5:21). To perpetrate a hoax that Jewish Israelis are foreign invaders.
That the Palestinians are the “real-Jews”:
[Again, in order to dishonestly evade the noble Quran’s recognition - see above.]
Inconsistent with the latter, the Palestinians also falsely-claim (more strangely) they are descended from the Canaanites:
“Op-ed in PA daily fabricates history, claiming Palestinians are descendants of the biblical Canaanites Source: Official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, July 27, 2017”:
Genuine History and News will have internationally accepted objective-evidence. The “Palestinian” Arabs do not “do” objective-evidence. They also label as: “Propaganda”, “Hasbara”, “Dehumanization”, “Subterfuge”, “Rant”, “Lies”, “Fake”, "Spam",
any verifiable-argument or sources they seem Unable to answer and therefore also, Refuse to answer.
Example questions characterized by anti-Jewish hatred posing as anti-Israel / anti-Zionist:
Falsehood against Israel usually either psychologically-reflects what the pro-"Palestinian" Arab contributors desire to have happen to Israel / the Jewish People, or reflect the actual behaviour of the "Palestinian" Arabs.

You can be constructive in your criticism about anyone because in the end you face God not your fellow man.
