    15 Apr 2016 by CST

  • What antisemites really think

    14 Apr 2016 by Dave Rich

    Last night Channel 4 broadcast a documentary called “What British Muslims Really Think”, based on an opinion poll asking a range of questions about integration, identity, religion social attitudes. The survey included a set of questions about attitudes towards, and beliefs about, Jews. It confirmed the findings of previous polls, showing that levels of antisemitism in Muslim communities are higher than in the general population. This pattern has been found by polls across Western Europe. This latest poll showed something else that is interesting, and is not specific to Muslims: that people who believe antisemitic things about Jews rarely think of themselves as antisemitic.

  • Ex Bradford Mayor, “Greater Israel” and Stupid Antisemitism

    24 Mar 2016 by Mark Gardner

    Watch these three minutes of sheer lunacy below. It is unlikely that you will have seen a more obvious example of antisemitic craziness (and no, it appears not to be Larry David having a Borat type laugh at the expense of stupid antisemites). Stupid as it is, this brings us immediately to the heart of antisemitic conspiracy theory and how it lies at the heart of anti-Israel and anti-Zionist conspiracy theory. After 9/11, the widely held accusation was that 4,000 Jews (not Zionists) were warned not to go to work in the Twin Towers, because Mossad was controlling Al Qaeda. Today, that shifts seamlessly into Mossad running ISIS.   Read more…
