It is impossible to accurately assess how much damage the latest episodes of racism caused Labour, but at least in two constituencies which include Jewish communities, the party suffered losses.15:39 06.05.16 | 0 comments
Benn is right about one thing. The world certainly has changed since prezident Obama Hussein Barack came to power. For the first time in their history, the official foreign policy of the US is appeasement. The Iranians and North Koreans thumb their noses at the world with impunity. The Taliban are whipping US and NATO forces in Afghanistan. Dictators Assad and Chavez openly laugh at the US while the prezidential envoys Mitchell and Clinton brown nose with them. The only country to which the US lectures and threatens is their former ideological ally Israel. And finally who cares what the Norwegians feel is the correct way to resolve the problems in the Middle East. The last time that Jews were threatened with annihilation, the Norwegians gave up to Hitler without a fight. Since WWII the word Quisling is now common parlance for traitor. Quisling was the Nazi's puppet Prime Minister of Norway.
