'I am ashamed that I saw injustice and never did anything about it,' Reinhold Hanning tells German courtroom.01:17 30.04.16 | 1 comments
Perhaps no country in Europe has been so divided in its history between anti-semites and philo-semites. The British have always been more xenophobic than the French, yet have always tauted their tradition of accepting eccentricity as a virtue. These imams who preach this anti-Jewish hatred should be expelled. Inter-faith dialogue between the three monothesitic religions must take itself to a new level. Yet, Mr. Wistrich is certainly aware of the rising tide of Islamophobia in Britain, among all classes. Desecration of mosques and Muslim cemeteries is occuring across Europe. The overwhelming percentage of British Muslims are integrated into British life and demanding to be seen as such. Mr. Wistrich should recognise that criticism of Israel and condemnation of its occupation is not synonomous w/anti-Semitism, as much as he would like us to think so. That ongoing occupation is surely fuel to the fire in explaining the rise in anti-Israel sentiments.
