According to Lori Marcus in an Israel National News article,
Have we not yet learned that when Muslims cry â€œoffensive,â€ it may have little (or nothing) to do with religious principles, but is instead one of the tools in their arsenal for geographic or psychological extortion?
Have we not yet learned that when Jews slag off the Muslims, it may have little (or nothing) to do with religious principles, but is instead one of the tools in their arsenal for geographic or psychological extortion? No, obviously we haven’t, because we’re sane enough to realise the difference between lunatics like Lori Marcus and Jews-in-general. Go figure.
Similarly, Shalom Lappin (writing at Normblog) is also an idiot:
The current defence of [Ken Livingstone’s] insult as legitimate if offensive political expression indicates a general refusal to take seriously the deeply racist nature of his political strategy. He systematically provokes Jews in order to curry favour with a variety of political and religious constituencies. Interestingly, he incurs no serious political damage for this policy.
No, he provokes gibbering Zionist lunatics. A sizeable proportion of London’s Jews agree with Ken’s Middle East policy and have no problems with his Standard-baiting.
Why do idiots like Ms Marcus and Mr Lappin feel they have the right to speak for all Jews? It’s like when Nick Griffin claims he’s speaking for all English people – except that absolutely no-one takes Mr Griffin seriously…
