'I accept that the comments that Ken Livingstone has made make it more difficult for Londoners of Jewish faith to feel that the Labour Party is a place for them,' says mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan.03:33 02.05.16 | 0 comments
Like other Jews, Shlomo Avineri seems to have trouble talking about the discrimination/suffering of other people without putting forward their own, not matter its irrelevance. Now that the Swiss have voted a discriminatory constitutional amendment against Muslim, he manages to talk about how Jews are discriminated... First, let's remind that the Jewish community did not lift a finger during the anti-minaret campaign. However, during operation Cast Lead, many of them went out on the street to praise the Israeli massacre. So let's assume Swiss Jews are no better than the average Swiss citizen. Second, kosher=halal, is same same, isn't it? you cut the throat of the animal and let it bleed to death... In any case, you don't have to be antisemitic today to ban such ways of slaugtering. Perceiving this as a antisemitic is just bullshit, whereas the minaret ban is islamophobic. Let's stop putting Jewish suffering forward when it's not relevant.
