    The Israeli-Palestinian conflict is a minor conflict. It has resulted in less than 15,000 deaths on both sides since 1948. That's about the number of car accidents in Germany since 2009. It's objectively completely insignificant. Everybody should stop being so obsessive about it. It doesn’t make sense. Yes, we are going to get a third intifada. The whole world is going to. The ME is becoming Islamist, a natural process that has nothing to do with Israel whatsoever. Political Islam, the same uncompromising movement that invented the Palestinian cause, is now overtly angry at everyone, all the time, because its honour has been sullied in one way or another. So everybody just hold on to one’s energy resources and wait for it to pass. It will probably take 100 year at least. It is very, very arrogant to think that Israel can do anything about it. We are just a pawn on the board. We should do the same as everyone else: exploit our gas, and wait. It’s going to be fine. Nasty, but fine. We have proven quite good at it over the years.

Why Britain’s Labour Party has suddenly become synonymous with anti-Semitism

When senior party members spout vile anti-Jewish theories and at the same time insist they are in no way anti-Semites, they truly believe they are not lying.
