CiF comments of the day (fed up with Jews….)

David Goldberg’s Nov. 24th CiF piece entitled Saudi Arabia’s intolerable Saudi textbooks seemed to put CiF’s everyday Israel and Jew bashers on the defensive and, by and large, the comment thread was dominated by those who rightly were outraged by UK schools’ use of Saudi textbooks which taught (for instance) that Jews were descended from “monkeys” and “pigs” and advocated the killing homosexuals.

However, there are some – the usual array of reactionaries disguised as progressives – who are never outraged by even the most explicit display of Jew hatred.  Here are a few examples:

Jews have reaped what they have sown (70 recommendations)


When in doubt, just change the subject and blame Zionists, per a commenter named “fed up with Jews politics”


The “why let mere “evidence” get in the way of a strongly held belief” non-sequitur (66 recommendations)

The Jury is still out on whether Jews are descendants of apes and pigs (comment was deleted)
