By Jon_i_Cohen, January 4, 2011

The gloves are off
By KATIE GREEN

To our Diaspora brethren: When it comes to criticizing Israel, there are areas you cause grave offense, and others where your input is welcome.

For a couple of years now, I’ve thought of writing an article called “The gloves are off.” But I delayed because I didn’t want the gloves to be off, and even if they were off, I didn’t want to be the one to state that they were. But now they are off, and the person who really helped us admit it is Mick Davis, chairman of the UJIA in the UK.

More bizare rantings from Iran:-

If you thought the Harry Potter series was an innocent children's fantasy story, you're wrong, an Iranian movie producer says: In reality, the Harry Potter books and movies are part of a “Zionist plot” to “spread their poison.” With its emphasis on witches, warlocks, and wonders, he says, the Harry Potter series "serves to spread the dark and evil essence of Zionism and its goals."

A Story From Chelm, (Funny If It Wasn't Serious)

By Jon_i_Cohen, December 24, 2010

Jewish humour has the well-known tradition from Eastern Europe of the people of Chełm, (which actually was a real place in Poland), a town reputed in these jokes to be inhabited by fools. The jokes were almost always centered on silly solutions to problems. Some of these solutions display "foolish wisdom" (reaching the correct answer by the wrong train of reasoning), while others are simply wrong.

British Jewry and the "leadersheep"

By Jon_i_Cohen, November 28, 2010

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.
