For years I have argued that Jewish power is the power to silence criticism of Jewish Power. Now, UK Prime Minister Theresa May has confirmed that my observation is spot on.
PM May has decided to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism and to integrate it into British law.
According to the IHRA, “anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred toward Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed toward Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, toward Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.”
Pretty lazy definition I’d say. Substitute the word ‘anti-Semitism’ with ‘bigotry’ and the word ‘Jews’ with ‘one people’ and you end up with a reasonably good definition of hatred itself. But our Theresa thinks Jews deserve special protection. And why? Because although in Britain, as in the USA, Germany and France everyone is equal in the eyes of the law, Jews are somehow more equal than others.
Sir Eric Pickles, government envoy for ‘post-Holocaust issue’s, is also committed to the Jews and the primacy of their suffering, so much so that he has morphed into a giant gefilte fish. As Pickles told the BBC, the new definition “catches up with modern anti-Semitism.” It was, he said, “important not to conflate Jewish people with Israel.”
I couldn’t agree more. We should never conflate Jews with Israel. First, Jews are wonderfully, innocent, peace loving people—except perhaps the 14 million or so of them who support Israel and give the entire tribe a bad name—and second, it would be an absurd to ignore the five or so Jews who oppose Israel and truly support Palestine. Maybe Pickles should use his position and influence to lobby the Israeli government to stop defining Israel as the “Jewish state”—now, wouldn’t that stop people conflating the Jews with their state!
