Thread Name: BS: Caliphate
Subject: RE: BS: Caliphate
Some extracts from an article by Melanie Phillips in this week's Spectator ~~ posted simultaneously on the 'Small Hope' & 'Caliphate' threads:

Every time Israel takes military action to prevent further Palestinian attacks, it is falsely presented as the aggressive persecutor of the innocent.
Unless British Jews join this demonisation, they are deemed complicit with Israel's 'war crimes'. As a result, attacks on British Jews always spike during Israel's wars. So much for the supposed distinction between anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism. [MGM's emphasis]
Anti-Semitism singles out Jews for treatment applied to no other people: the application of double standards, false claims they are committing crimes of which they are instead the victims, and demonic conspiratorial powers. This is precisely the treatment applied to Israel.
But then the left marches side by side with Islamists, who are committed to the persecution of gays and women, while it boycotts Israel, the only place in the Middle East where Muslims enjoy human rights.

I am aware that some, whom I shall not name but we all know who, will denounce this as the ravings of a well-known, & hence ignorable, right-orientated journo; & [probably not in as many words, but implied nonetheless] a fucking yiddie bitch at that.

But some of the human beings who occasionally visit this forum might find some food for a bit of thought.
