Let's not oversimplify this to the point of irrelevance.  Nobody has
advocated the removal of all or significant parts of anti-semitic content
from Commons (or anywhere else).  Everyone seems to agree that you need to
host some of that content to be able to present informational and
educational material on it in the encyclopedias.

That a small particular set of anti-semitic content failed the
"informational and educational" test and was removed is not a generalization
of any sort.
