COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN RINF

 

Norman Finkelstein is a thoughtful and decent person, and the revelation that it was his sarcastic notion that was deliberately misinterpreted into vicious charges anti-Semitism contains elements of the Keystone Cops.

Papers like The Guardian and The Independent have run the most provocative and truly mindless pieces of propaganda during this huge McCarthyite hate-fest.

Even the leader of Israel’s Labour Party has joined in for his share of expressions of horror and disbelief that such anti-Semitism can exist, and that from a man who lives in a country where 5 million people are prisoners with zero rights, guilty of no crime.

It is all really about killing off Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a man Israel dislikes as too independent-minded.

No one seems to recognize how utterly inappropriate it is for another country, or even talk of another country, to be guiding political events in Britain.

This vicious outbreak in Britain actually makes the American system of political payments to cooperative politicians from the Israel Lobby seem rather temperate.

Much more of this kind of absurd circus is literally going to consign the word anti-Semitism to the dust bin of history. Then, just maybe, we can all begin the first honest discussion of Israel’s hideous behavior towards a whole people which is the only way to create pressure for change.
