In my experiences in real life. Many on the left have trouble distinguishing the country of Israel, and Jews in general. 

It sounds like you are saying that they are anti-Semites who are using criticism of Israel as an excuse.  It would be hard to prove that, as you are asking to look in someone's heart and see their true intentions.  My liberal Jewish friends are publishing articles saying that criticism of Israel isn't anti-Semitism.

I don't criticize Israel publicly, precisely because people like you might mistake me for being an anti-Semite.

You have far-right neo-nazi types or **** Muslims who are anti-Semites, you also have the mainstream right who are usually the most ardent supporters of Israel (Stephen Harper, Trump, W. Bush etc.).

You have far-left types who despise Israel as evil oppressors and are anti-zionist etc.  Then you have the mainstream left who will often criticize Israeli policies but don't have anything against Jews.
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.

I never criticized you as being anti-Semitic. It would depend on what context you criticise Israel. From my experiences, the moderates who are critical of some Israeli policies are usually eclipsed bymore vocal critics of Israel who actually cannot seperate the two

One wonders why Canadians are even pointing the finger at Israel when Canada has done much worse to our Indigenous peoples. Seems like a deflection method.

Instead of judging foreign countries, we as Canadians may want to take a good hard look at ourselves. We're no angels.

Hey check it out guys, i found literally the dumbest news article about jews in canada in the history of newsmedia!:

https://torontosun.com/2017/10/04/trudeau-erases-jews-from-the-holocaust-again/wcm/5961a79b-1c4a-4438-a2b3-9c7ab3eee871#comments

Clearly, Trudeau is an antisemite holocaust denier who hates jews! [/sarcasm]

They just did the same thing to Scheer though so... what's good for the Jew-hating Goose is good for the Islamaphobic Gander.
