I have a piece in today's Telegraph on the accusation that Michal Kaminski, the leader of the European Conservatives and Reformists group in the European Parliament, is an antisemtite.
My argument is:
There are few things more despicable than anti-Semitism, but here's one of
them: using a false charge of anti-Semitism for political gain. Yet it seems
there are few depths to which some will not sink in their desperation to
damage David Cameron.
...Far from being an anti-Semite, Mr Kaminski is about as pro-Israeli an MEP as
exists. Ironically, it is Mr McMillan-Scott who has repeatedly called for
Israel to engage with Hamas – an organisation which is committed by charter
to the destruction of Israel. Yes, the resurgence of anti-Semitism is a
serious and worrying issue – but to use it to further your political ends is
mudslinging of the most disgusting kind.
