Why left-wing anti-Semitism matters

Is there a difference between left-wing anti-Semites and right-wing Jew-haters?

In theory, the answer is no. Hate is hate, no matter what its source. Except for some, including many Jews, the source of the hate does seem to matter. If, for example, you think right-wing hate is inherently more dangerous, you might give a pass to haters on the left or at least pay a bit less attention to them. Just as important, if you’re inclined to think that the source of anti-Jewish prejudice matters more than anything else, you might also disregard the relative danger each threat poses to the Jewish community.
