Earth to Moshe: Come in please!

Reader comment on item: Trouble in Londonistan

Presumably there is a language barrier at work here as my initial comment requested evidence to support the claim that Britain was a particularly Anti-Semitic environment. You were unable to do so, Moshe. End of story.

"If anyone, ever, could have accused the European Jews for anything reminding the current Muslim threat, how many people would have condemned the Holocaust? The whole world would have called it a justified act of self-defense!"

- Referring back to the above statement you are basically saying that genocide can be justified given sufficient provovcation.. In English, there is no earthly way that the above statement can be interpreted as meaning other than that.

My retort was to the effect that such a sentiment or belief in such a statement is ludicrous and makes for a very fine line between your beliefs and those of the SS. However, I prefer to assume that it is simply a case of poor English on your part as the alternative is too shocking to believe given the amount of historical information available to anybody with a genuine interest in the subject.

Now talking about delusion, can you please explain your comparison between some dark Satanic medieval superstitions circulating about Jews in Europe ("Jews have been accused of far worse") and the atrocities committed worldwide in the name of the Islam?

- I would suggest that you purchase a dictionary and look up the word 'accused' and ask somebody to explain that an accusation needs no basis in fact and then to do a little research into the propaganda that was in existence prior to Kristelnacht in Nazi Germany. Nobody with a reasonable grasp of the English language could possibly construe anything in my replies to suggest that European Jewry was actually guilty of anything nefarious. Unless you are literally somebody who believes that everything that appears in print has to be true.

Genocide is dispicable under any circumstances and you should be ashamed of yourself for assuming that the greater part of humanity shares your warped equivocations. Speak for yourself, not for the rest of us. Quite how somebody can drift so far away from the point is quite incredible. Contrary to your beliefs the world would NOT 'called it a justified act of self-defense!" ' for Muslims to exterminated in this manner.

My posting had two central points:

1) The UK is no more anti-Semitic than anywhere else in Europe (if you can prove otherwise I would like to find out more)

2) Genocide is wrong under any circumstances.

You seem unable to answer the first consistently and you obviously belief that genocide can be justified under certain circumstances. Thank you. End of conversation. We now know your position.

I'd be grateful to anybody else out there who can explain to me why the UK is 'anti-Semitic' as Moshe has been unable to offer an insight into the subject. All I want is a few links to support this claim. If it's true then it is hardly a 'big ask'. If nobody can, then we can presumably agree that this is rubbish.

Have a nice day,

Sword
