When the term is used of course, what exactly is controversial is not explained. Knowledge of it is presumed, as if with a wink and a nod to the reader. Actually putting into words what is controversial would take some knowledge of the situation and would reveal just how ridiculous and anti-Semetic it is to say that Jews should not be allowed to be here, in the Land of Israel, Judea, Jerusalem of all places.
