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.

          Read some of the nonsense you write the other day Mz Penny. Ignorant fantasist with a persecution complex is how I would describe you.

    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.

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

    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.

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
