Anti-Semitism in British Newspapers
I’ve often criticized Israel’s partsans for seeing anti-Semitism where it ain’t – fo rinstance, virutally any criticism of Israel in the British press is attributed to anti-Semitism. But that doesn’t mean that there are never legitimate complaints. From Richard Ingrams in this past Sunday’s Observer:
I have developed a habit when confronted by letters to the editor in support of the Israeli government to look at the signature to see if the writer has a Jewish name. If so, I tend not to read it.
Memo to Mr. Ingrams: Go fuck yourself.
- Anti-Semitism redux, redux. Er, redux.
- The Least Anti-Semitic Place in America? A College Campus.
- Is this Political Cartoon Anti-Semitic?
- When is calling a Jew a Nazi not anti-Semitic? When she's a feminist Jew.
- Anyone who doesn't fund Israel is an anti-Semite
