or "Who are the useful idiots?"
For those who hate Israel and support Islamists, the following is now PC dogma. I am concerned that some sections of British Jewry are being conned by it and others are just being intimidated. Of course, it is quite clever and unfortunately many Jews are too foolish or too cowardly to expose it.
Let's take a look at the "logic":
(1) The EDL attacks Islam and supports Israel.
(2) But remember,The EDL are Nazis!
(3) Therefore, Israel must be a Nazi state, since some Jewish members of The EDL support it and wave Israeli flags .
(But why oh why, can't they be good Jews and just vote Lib Dems? Btw Roberta Moore is even more dangerous than George Galloway!)
(4) Of course, anybody who supports Israel is automatically dubbed a Nazi (nothing new there!)
(5) Nobody can, therefore, support Israel, unless they are paid up Nazis (standard Palestinian solidarity rhetoric).
(6) British Jews, who are not Nazis, are petrified that they will somehow be linked, via editorials in The Guardian, to The EDL, particularly at the Ahava demo.
(Best to stay at home and oppose the banning of the burka in The JC , especially since Hoffman is waving the Israeli flag at Ahava.)
(7) And remember, The EDL is going to exterminate British Jewry since they are Nazis.
(and the stupid Jews in The EDL are colluding! The EDL are white, working class and they still have old gas ovens!)
(8) f you criticize Islam and The Islamists ("Islamophobia"), you are inevitably a Nazi, just like The EDL.
(Islamophobia= Nazism. Read what Jon Benjamin from the Board of Deputies writes.)
(9) Of course, British Jews can no longer criticize Islam and The Islamists, as they will be dubbed Nazis, just like The EDL.
( I presume that the real allies of British Jewry are actually The Islamists)
(10) Game, set and match to the anti-zionists and The Islamists. But why the hell was it so damn easy?
Julian Kossoff writes:
"But when I heard that there were Jews actively supporting the English Defence League (EDL), I thought: “pull the other one”. The EDL claims to stand up for Englishness against Islamic extremism, but in truth it is largely a hodgepodge of football hooligans, lumpen boot-boys and cast-offs from seedy neo-Nazi outfits, such as Combat 18."
Jon Benjamin, Board of Deputies chief executive, said: "The EDL's supposed 'support' for Israel is empty and duplicitous. It is built on a foundation of Islamophobia and hatred which we reject entirely.
"Sadly, we know only too well what hatred for hatred's sake can cause. The overwhelming majority will not be drawn in by this transparent attempt to manipulate a tense political conflict."
When electioneering in Birmingham, David Cameron said:
“The EDL are terrible people, we would always keep these groups under review and if we needed to ban them, we would ban them or any groups which incite hatred.”
