|Jewish Chronicle today carries full page advert for the DEC Gaza Appeal Scam|
It is clear there is no hope of our 'leaders' stemming the tidal wive of antisemitism because they refuse to understand that this tidal wive is almost exclusively wrapped up in the form of demonization of Israel and support for Hamas. Anything that fails to address this is doomed to failure In particular, anybody who uses a statement like "British Jews should not be punished for the actions of the Israeli government" is not only failing to help but is part of the problem as they are actually providing further fuel for the antisemitism. Any statement like that simply confirms in the minds of the antisemites that they are right in their premise that Israel is the root cause of evil. The fact that today's Jewish Chronicle - the so called 'voice of British Jewry' - includes a full page advert for the DEC Gaza appeal scam is a perfect summary of everything that is wrong. This appeal (as discussed here) is a perfect case study of how our enemies' lies lead to demonization of Israel and provide both financial and moral support for Hamas terrorists.
I was also alarmed at the statement made by Mr Weiger suggesting it was right to work with groups like Yachad. How much evidence do people need that Yachad is not 'pro-Israel pro-peace' as they claim but a ferociously anti-Zionist organisation driven by the same sentiments as our enemies (namely that Israel is the root cause of the problem)?
