I cannot remember Jews causing any trouble in this country. They have never rioted; they have never formed their own ghettos; they have never sought to change the laws and institutional framework of this country to suit their cultural identity; they have never dressed in a manner which repulses the indigenous population. In the Jewish homeland itself we have a liberal democracy (the only one in the region); full respect for minority groups; Arab participation in the police, the judiciary and the defence forces; full emancipation of, and equality for, women; and a firm friend of the West. Sounds to me like a great wee country. The Jews I have met have been great and funny people. Jews are responsible for inventions such as the shopping trolley, vinyl records, the flexible endoscope, polaroid cameras, the electron microscope, and electric meters. American Jews have given us some of the funniest films in existence. Blazing Saddles, The Producers, Airplane, and Naked Gun are all products of Jewish minds. And need I mention Albert Einstein…?
What I am trying to say is that Jews are pretty fine people. Yet they remain the one ethno-demographic group (and Israel remains the one liberal democracy) that the Left – and that includes the majority of the British Establishment – finds it acceptable to mock and criticise. Belfast’s own Leo McKinstry has an excellent piece in today’s Daily Express. He points out the increasing levels of anti-Semitism from elements of the Left, such as those espoused by the BBC’s darlings Tom Paulin and Stephen Rose. At the same time any amount of asylum-worthy insanity displayed by Allah’s apostles always manages to elicit a defence of pathetic excuses from such types.
One of the biggest concerns I have is this growing alliance between Islamic nutcases and Left-wing thinkers. Unlike Judaism, Islam is a growing, malignant force in this country, and the desire to harness opinions that used to be confined to bearded Imams in British mosques is something that should give those of us on the Right something to ponder and challenge.
