It is only a matter of time before some politician/academic or other worthy celebrity says something along these lines:

‘I am not saying anyone actually does this, but I do support the right of Jews to torture the host if they so wish. It is a matter of freedom of expression and freedom of religion. Now of course I am entirely irreligious myself, but we must recognise that it is consistent with modern human rights to tolerate religious practices as long as they are not racist, sexist or homophobic or otherwise affect or upset the Palestinians. Now those who are Jewish have always denied their involvement in such alleged practices, but this is of course purely as a result of previous intolerance of an era where neither tolerance of difference nor freedom of expression were given sufficient attention or prominence in European or world circles. Thus those whose religion requires of them to allege that they disdain the divinity of the host or its alleged salvatory properties, should feel it necessary to be able to express their opinions even if these are in fact repugnant to those who profess to follow the alleged Christian religion. Because after all, legitimate criticism of Israel is not the same thing as anti-semitism.’
