I ,personally , think that the infamous British anti-Semtism helped to make them lose their way. Hating the Jews , favoring the Arabs .

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

- At the risk of sounding inflammatory, until such time as it can be demonstrated otherwise, I regard this statement as naive at best! They sound like the words of somebody who has abandoned Israel and gone to the US to make money and blames the rest of the civilised world for their cowardice.

Please explain how Britain is demonstrably more anti-semitic than any other country in Europe (or, the US for that matter). As a Britisher I am intrigued as to where this myth comes from. Is it purely ignorance? Somebody please explain it to me; using real world examples, if at all possible. Anti-Semites generally quote the Treaties of Zion, The Balfour Declaration and Britain's central role in a global conspiracy to deprive the Arabs of their lands so I'm more than a little mystified as to the origins of such paranoia (unless it stems from a failure to understand that diplomacy, however misguided, is not a one way street.) A little thing called World War II, notwithstanding, please enlighten me! Links, please, and quotes - not urban legend...................................

We all know that a country cannot have dual nations living together.It does not work, it never did.

- That sounds rather Anti-Semitic and not a sentiment that many of my British friends would concur with. Unless, of course, you are proposing some kind of Final Solution for the Palestinian Question - which is an absolutely vile proposition!
