Guardian reader on “belligerent” Jewish race: 72 Recommends, not deleted by CiF Moderators

I originally thought about posting this Guardian reader comment, posted beneath the line of the CiF essay “Netanyahu and Obama’s prickly alliance against Iran, Jonathan Freedland, March 6, despite the fact that I assumed it would be deleted by CiF moderators. But, 27 hours after being posted, it’s still there. 

The commenter using the moniker theolderb” (whose real name is listed as Stephen Barraclough) is concerned that his suggestion that Jews are a “belligerent” race would make him sound racist.

Evidently, CiF moderators don’t think so.
