tales of left and right

It always seems to me that Israel and apologists for Israeli policies have gotten a little confused.

How did being of " the left " come to correlate with racism and anti semitism in particular ? Isn't this at complete variance with the historical and present reality ? Hasn't racism always been a right wing desease ?

Wasn't it the left that offered the only resistance to the rise of fascism in the 1930's ? Where were the right ? You guessed it, sympathising and empathising with it.

The internationals campaigning on behalf of the Palestinians are from a very long proud tradition. The international observation of, and sometimes participation in, the resistance, is the only semblance of protection the people have against the brutality of the occupation.

The fascists and the far left are two sides of the same coin.
Left wing antisemitsm is far more prevalent then that of the right . The right consists of mindless football thugs pose the occasional physical threat whereas the left pose a greater intellectual antisemitic threat to the Jewish community .
Mary of Brighton , don't kid yourself that because the Internationale fought against Franco makes them humanitarian saviours of the world. Stalin murdered 60 million of his own people and formed an ill judged alliance with the nazis .
The threat and delegitimization of israel today comes primarily from the far left who for their own nefarious purpose have seen fit to climb into bed with the Islamo fascists just as they did with the nazis . Turn a blind eye to homophobia ,racism misogyny . Reject all values and principles in order to confront and ultimately destroy the one Jewish state .
Make no mistake , Jews the world over regard the fR left as latter day nazis . I suggest you take off the rose tinted glasses

Harvey, extreme right-wing Jews who stand with the Holocaust-denying, neo-Nazi BNP's friends at the EDL are thge only ones who regard the left as latter-day Nazis.

I see Millis so you would support the extreme left wing UCU who have rejected a definition of anti-Semitism only because it would prevent them from unfairly singling out Israel for criticism? That's not what it says on your label.

No, "advis3r" I support ronnie fraser's legal action, and he knows it. Nice try, tho. As far as I am concerned, UCU and the EDL are the same nutters.

Millis you have just contradicted yourself at 10:37
You said: "extreme right-wing Jews who stand with the Holocaust-denying, neo-Nazi BNP's friends at the EDL are thge only ones who regard the left as latter-day Nazis." but now you say you consider UCU the same as the EDL. So far as I am aware the UCU is basically in thrall to the SWP about as left wing as one can get. So you agree with Harvey?
