Sorry to be so repetitive, and I’ll leave it after this for a while BUT I was outraged at the BBC’s reporting of Israeli reaction to Desmond Tutu’s UN sponsored visit to Gaza the other day. Having given that smirking South African clown the opportunity to demonise the Jews for their treatment of all those poor entirely innocent Palestinians, the Israeli government was allowed to respond and rightly (too kindly, I would add) suggested that Tutu had been “mislaid” by Hamas as to the nature of what is going on in Gaza. In many ways had it been left there, one could have said fair enough but the BBC was NOT prepared to leave it there and so this morning on the pro-Hamas Today programme around 6.55 we had an International Professor of Law interviewed who had accompanied Tutu on his grand tour of Hamasland and she was allowed to have another go at Israel, with the BBC interviewer helpfully bringing up the issue of “war crimes”. Naturally, this time round there was NO opportunity for an Israeli rebuttal. The BBC is determined to ensure that Tutu’s anti-Israeli spin prevails and this is what was driving this anti-Jewish agenda this morning. The complete lack of any discussion on the sheer savagery that drives Hamas – elected by the moral degenerates that live in Gaza – is blithely ignored at all times. Still the Jews deserve all they get – right? – and the BBC is here to make sure they get it. We talk about BBC bias here but in a way this is worse – it is the serial demonisation of a people by the British State broadcaster and it leaves me angry.
TUTU IN A SPIN – PART TWO.

“a person born to a Jewish mother who is an atheist and never practices the Jewish religion is still a Jew, even in the eyes of the ultra-Orthodox”
Actually, it should be especially in the eyes of the ultra-Orthodox.
Libertus, I could become an Irish citizen, but I would not become part of the Irish ethnos. My children might assimilate over time and bobody will know (although modern DNA research is amazing), but I would forever be a foreigner.
Yes, I am a man.
Sorry re typos. That should be ‘LOL’ and ‘nobody’.
I know Israelis who simply reject the rabbis’ decisions with the words ‘They can fuck off, they don’t tell me who I am’ (I am giving you the expurgated version here). To those people, Jews are a nation, with a religion that happens to be unique to it but that people are free to reject in these times when few in the west worry about excommunication or clerics’ rants.
Jack, I bet you know the joke about the Jewish family who move to Belfast during “the troubles”?
Is that the one that goes…
“sure yees a Jew — But are yees a Catholic Jew or are yees a Protestant Jew…”
That’s the one! 😆
Trust illiterate beeboids to call Vanunu a ‘scientist’.
Stealth edit alert: Vanunu is a “former worker” at a nuclear reactor now. Europe is still “supine”.
He is still a ‘scientist’ in para. 2.
Of course, to the illiterate arts bods at the Beeb, a plumber is a scientist.
