So fine the resolution

Hakmao usually is very economical with words, most of her posts are short and surgically precise. This post, Degrees of Separation, however, is one of the (very few) exceptions. The case of Michael Rosen vs. Gilad Atzmon and the associated crapola by SWP is analysed quite extensively.

No, this is not a fisk, of course (I couldn't be that suicidal, could I?) It is just that I would like to make two remarks beyond the scope of the comments box.

  1. Calling Jews Sans Frontières trenchant is a bit of a misnomer. Trenchant as "Having keenness and forcefulness and penetration in thought, expression, or intellect" couldn't be farther from the monotonous anti-Israeli bull disseminated daily by so called Levi99. With all the forcefulness and penetration of a 96 years old impotent with Parkinson disease.
  2. From where we sit here, the difference between the likes of Atzmon and the likes of Elf is purely academic, with all the consequences of this strong statement. While the former clearly crossed the border to the realm of brownshirt insanity, the latter is lurking in the vicinity of this border. For both of them the mere fact of State of Israel's existence is pure anathema. Both would like nothing more than for this state to disappear. It bothers both to no end to have to explain that they belong (at least genetically, although I could add a few words to that...) to the tribe that makes them feel so uncomfortable with their non-Jewish "liberal" friends. And as far as I can see, Atzmon's "anti-Semitism" is no more than a cry: "I am not one of them, I am one of you, folks, burn them out if you like and see if I care!". Compassion and mental care is what he needs, I say. Oh, and being squashed like a bug in the process.
  3. And re the links: why link to these creeps? After all, they feed on their notoriety, and every link adds to it.
  4. Otherwise - an exemplary post, many (up to a point, of course) kudos to Hakmao.
And of course, I cannot miss an opportunity for self-aggrandizement and to mention a few posts we have done on the subject. Not to be mixed with the seminal treatise by GideonSwort that should be read by all who visit this place (hint).

Hear, hear!
