… this venomous anti-Semite and Holocaust denier will never be able to play the anti-Israel card again without members of his audience sniggering. “How can you attack your own cousins?” they’ll ask. And as for Ahmadinejad’s anti-Semitic political enemies, both in Iran and the Arab world, I can tell you exactly how they will refer to him in future:

In which I withdraw from certain areas of the electronic world

Yesterday, I had to send in my withdrawal notice from a certain mailing list that I have been a member of for the past few years. The reason why makes me a little sad and frustrated, along with the usual annoyance at suddenly unwanted email.

This particular mailing list has solely to do with Israel, especially foreign policy related to that country. However, in the past three or four days, I was getting letters from the list owner that can best be described with the adjectives “frothing” and “insane.”

Instead of Israel, or any topic related to that country, the list owner ran on in each letter for several very long paragraphs about how Obama is not a natural-born American citizen, and how we must all act now to prevent his inauguration. Reading these, the phrase “a mind unhinged” came to my mind.

The only way I could think of to avoid this madness was to take my address off of the list. I now have one less trustworthy news source to follow. Pity.

The Left and their Anti-Semitism

Golly, who would have thought? The Left is anti-semitic. Not only that, their anti-semitism has had an impact.

Anti-Semitism and the Left that Doesn’t Learn
By Mitchell Cohen (online)

A DETERMINED offensive is underway. Its target is in the Middle East, and it is an old target: the legitimacy of Israel. Hezbollah or Hamas are not the protagonists, the contested terrains are not the Galilee and southern Lebanon or southern Israel and Gaza. The means are not military. The offensive comes from within parts of the liberal and left intelligentsia in the United States and Europe.
