Quote of the Day

Hugo Rifkind in the Times:

“Something is different now. Antisemitism has always spiked when Israel deploys the Israeli Defence Force, but this time the ire is not confined to Israelis. Instead, far more than before, protesters are using, and twisting, the word “Zionists”. Many, even most, probably don’t mean any harm by it. Perhaps they see it as a narrowing term, a way to specifically not attack all Jews or even all Israelis, but merely those who wish to ethnically cleanse Palestine of Palestinians and put Jews there instead. The trouble is, “Zionism” doesn’t mean that. It’s a broad term and it refers to the simple fact of there being a Jewish homeland at all. Believe in a two-state solution? You’re a Zionist. Strive for a bi-national state? Also a Zionist. The United Nations is Zionist. Technically, even the Palestinian Authority is Zionist; that’s what the damn word means.”

    When we want to know your opinion, we’ll tell you what it is. Take off those shoes and get back in the kitchen.

    When Ed Miliband is PM he’ll appoint me to the House of Lords and I’ll ban comments offensive to women. Criticism of me is because I’m a women, not because I am not an expert on anything other than my own life.

    Please hurry up and conquer the whole area so you can be destroyed and Jesus the Meek and Mild can return to kill the non-believers and rapture us true Christians into heaven.
    Faithfully Yours,
    A Christian

    Shut up, you filthy white western whore! Wear a burqa and submit to the will of Allah or perish in His cleansing fires!

    Won’t be too long before the middle-east is the ethnically cleanest spot on the map.

    Birmingham City Council Dept. for Education says:

    As we teach our children, you will ALL die! All of you! Christian, J*w, infidel, homosexuals (Satanic beasts!) and all women who fail to submit to the will of their husbands.

    And the ones who’ve been ‘cleansed’ are all living here on generous benefits.

    If only we could meet an antisemite who wasn’t a misinformed fool. Not knowing the meaning of Zio’nist is just scratching the surface.

    -Calling the BBC biased with no proof given.
    -Ignorant of how I’srael appeared on the map (UN resolution 181)
    -Swallowing whole the Hamas casualty demographics when they have never been true before. See the statistical analysis.
    -Unaware of killings and friendly fire by Hamas (240 rockets fell short)
    -Accusations of racism when hamas does not allow J’ews into Gaza and anyone selling property to them faces the death penalty. No such equivalent in I’srael where arabs even have the vote.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
