New Wave of Anti-Semitism in Britain

July 11, 2007 § 2 Comments

Yusuf Smith, of Indigo Jo Blogs, reports that a new wave of antisemitism is on the rise,

“Yesterday evening, the well-known talk-show host and newspaper columnist Richard Littlejohn presented an hour-long documentary, as part of Channel 4’s Dispatches feature, entitled “The War On British Jews?”, purporting to demonstrate that “in Britain 2007, it’s open season on the Jews”. You can see it in a series of YouTube videos here. The programme made a number of familiar points, among them that the Left, despite its anti-racist reputation, was “pouring petrol on the flames”, and demonstrated a rather lackadaisical investigation.”

    I don’t think there is a wave of anti-semitism but rather a perception (or should I say promotion) of that idea amongst vocal zionists like Richard Littlejohn. Littlejohn is a notorious neocon who misses no opportunities in criticising Islam and Muslims.
    Whilst there are some Muslims who are anti-semites, I think that the majority of us are antizionists and I don’t agree with Littlejohn when he says that antisemitism and antizionism are one and the same.
    There is a good post on this on ummahpulse.co.uk

    Perhaps you are right. But what is the mainstrem opinion? The mainstream opinion must be acknowledge or dissent will be marginalized. So what is the mainstream opinion?
