This is just a paraphrase of the sentence uttered by one Tim Wilcox, BBC Newsreader, who told a scared Jewish lady in Paris that "Palestinians suffered hugely at Jewish hands."
The idea, according to which the fate of European Jews is linked to the deeds (or misdeeds) of the Zionist entity, first propagated by that excrescence Seumas Milne, obviously became today a gospel for a part of the British establishment, like in this case.
When the discourse like that becomes as accepted as the discussion of the weather, why should we be surprised when the BBC TV director, one Danny Cohen, who happens to be Jewish, tells people about his fears in such simple terms:
“I’ve never felt so uncomfortable being a Jew in the UK as I’ve felt in the last 12 months. And it’s made me think about, you know, is it our long-term home, actually? Because you feel it. I’ve felt it in a way I’ve never felt before,” he said.Yes, Mr Cohen, apparently it is time to decide for yourself whether you are a Jew or an Israeli. Because your current compatriots don't seem to care about the difference anymore, if you know what I mean.
The masks are going down...
Update: a good article by Nick Cohen on Wilcox affair, where he says:
More important, Wilcox is not some isolated and aberrant racist; his views are the standard opinions of the European left middle class. I meet them every day in my political neighbourhood.With a stark finale:
I wonder how many more bombs it will take to blow these people out of their folly. In my bleaker moments, I suspect they will take it to their graves.
