What ?

Reader comment on item: Londonistan Follies
in response to reader comment: DO NOT TRUST ANYONE WITH A BRITISH ACCENT - PART II

Submitted by Matthew Bird (United Kingdom), Jun 10, 2006 at 12:22

Fine, a few British Academics have done this- what about the people doing similar things in the United States - Berkeley (i think) university has a program aimed at boycotting companies who invest in Israel and apparently pro palestinain protests in Harvard and countless other universities cross the line into anti-semitism.... + 1/3 americans believe Jews are more loyal to Israel.... what might that say about americans then...... why is Israel bashing/antisemitism in the US being ignored but shown to be a norm in the UK....

if it was, i'm pretty sure i would have seen evidence of antisemitism in daily life- I have not. You yanks have problems facing up to what happens in your own country so you really.....really love bashing the country which has sent troops into Iraq alongside your own and lost its own soldiers helping your country...

BTW if people liked Israel and Jewish people (i'm pretty sure they do) would that get reported..... i doubt it, why would it... its not exactly news.

Submitting....
