The Arrogance of the Guardian

Picking up on the atrocious editorial in “Comment is Free” yesterday, accusing Israel of being an “arrogant nation that has overreached itself”, Robin Shepherd concludes:

I have tried long and hard to avoid the conclusion that brute anti-Semitism is at the core of the campaign to demonise Israel in Europe, and I still stick to my view that it is an effect of what is going on rather than a cause. But, boy, if ever there were a distinction that is beginning to look difficult to sustain, that is increasingly looking like one of them.

Quite so.
