Why has Melanie Phillips' column not been posted on the JC Website?

By Jonathan Hoffman
November 27, 2010

Her column this week was entitled "Canada PM Shames UJIA Boss"

"The non-Jewish Canadia Prime Minister gets it. What a tragedy that the Chairman of the UJIA and so many other dispora Jews do not"

Cockup or Kessler Foundation Conspiracy?

Jonathan, good evening. I am sure it is cock-up rather than conspiracy, since they have put Emanuele Ottolenghi's piece up. Maybe the JC staff were so busy on Friday that the web staff forgot to put it up. IAC, looking at the JC's letters' pages, there seemed to be a 50/50 split between the pros and cons, including a pro-Davis one by Sir Trevor Chinn and David Cohen, donor Sir Harry Solomon, Bicom chairman Poju Zabludowicz and new peer, JLC vice-president Stanley Fink. Hardly an anti-Israel bunch now, Jonathan, are they?
Have a very good week. Shavua Tov.

As Melanie points out, with the appalling trend of the so-called UK Community "leadersheep" falling for the anti-Israel, left-wing clap-trap and wanting to suck up to the UK's politicians, not wanting to rock the boat, to appear "liberal" and "left of centre".

They have got it wrong and it smacks of pre-war Germany where the Jews wanted to "blend in" and as we all know what a big mistake that was.

All they are doing is aiding our enemies and making the situation far worse, for example, for the Jewish students on campus - how do the likes of Mr Davis expect our students to stand up and defend Israel when people such as Mr Davis, in the limelight, are doing just the opposite. What do these people think? appease the Palestinians and every thing will be alright?

Look at todays news - the PA are repeating the Khartoum mantra of 1967 - No recognistion of Israel, No negotiations with Israel No peace with Israel:-


As to why Melanie Phillips article was not published? pretty obvious when you look at the smattering of letters in this weeks JC on the issue, apart from Jonathan Hoffmans letter,(as vice chair of the ZF and with 50 odd signatories they could hardly refuse to print it), but there were no other letters from the right of centre, unfortunately this is indicative of the left wing "trendy" stance of the JC.

This dillusional approach of critiscising Israel and sucking up to our enemies is NOT the way forward, it will only make matters far worse, standing up to our enemies and advocating a positive and supportive position of the Government and Prime Minister of Israel IS the way forward.

Thank God for the few prominent righteous gentiles who see it as it is, such as the Canadian PM Stephen Harper and the ex-Spanish Premier Jose Aznar, what must they be thinking about British Jewry's so-called "leadersheep".
