This is perfectly logical: A Jewish Republican accused a Muslim Democrat of anti-Semitism, she accused him of Islamophobia.
If your religion states that Jews are evil and someone accuses you of being anti-semitic, then they are criticising your religion since your religion specifically mandates that its adherents must hate Jews. What could be clearer than that?
Tolerance has nothing to do with it. That is a Judeo-Christian concept and unique to the West.
