sword,

i have read many of your posts in the past and admire your intelligence but today you scared me. you are angry because you feel that 2 commentators unjustly acuse the uk of being anti-semetic with the logical conclusion being that even if there are some anti semites in the uk, and there are as well as every other country on earth including israel, that it is ludicrious to blame an entire group of people for the actions of a few. then you go on to say that this is making you reassess your position in support of israel.

now, please clarify this for me, it is not ludicrious to blame the entire country of israel for the posts of 2 commentators, yet it is to criticize the uk under the same circumstances. thats some double standard you have my british friend and though i do not agree with the two posters you sighted, it certainly is easy for me to see how they reached their conclusion.

thank you
