So it appears Millis is either a JC employee or enjoys privileges not afforded to other bloggers - nice to know. My Zionist credentials are proven my settling in the Land of Israel. The settlers are as much zealots as Hamas are activists and Millis is as much a peacenik as Hezbollah is a charitable organisation.
Not capable of debating the position intelligently Millis descends to epithets - swivel eyes zealots etc which evidence the bankruptcy of his arguments and his bigotry. Now it appears he is going for the Chareidim too. Oh dear will it be the Ethiopians next one wonders (since many of them are also settlers) in his "crusade" for the "Middle Class" who wouldn't live in a "Chareidi Ghetto" as he calls them if you paid them.

As Melanie Phillips put it:

"We will never convince bigots that facts are as they are, or that the evidence of history tells a different story from the one they believe. We cannot fight prejudice with reason.

But we have a duty to bear witness to the truth. And we have a duty to fight in our defence.

We can best do this by getting off our back foot and putting western fifth columnists on theirs. We should accuse them, not of Jew-hating motives we cannot prove but of absurdities and contradictions and untruths they cannot deny.

We should ridicule them, humiliate them, destroy their reputations; boycott them, not invite them to our houses, show them our disapproval and contempt. Treat them as pariahs. Turn their own weapons against them.

In short, we must get up off our collective knees and fight. Justice, human rights and truth are on our side, not theirs. We must reclaim them as our own."
