Apparently, when the Guardian’s Assistant Editor, Michael White, heard about Lord Ahmed’s racist conspiracising about Jews and speeding convictions, what immediately sprang to mind was… Israel.
A bit like Lord Ahmed, really.
Surprised to find our Lord Ahmed Jews story not in BBC radio news summaries http://thetim.es/10I7Kpp (£)
@Dannythefink I agree it’s a stinker and typical of double standards. Pity about the illegal settlements though. Best wishes
@MichaelWhite What have the settlements got to do with it?
@Dannythefink A lot. Whenever one types “double standards” about tendentious Muslim claims those Israeli settlements start waving too. @MichaelWhite Please, no. A Rotherham man is claiming the Jews helped convict him of a driving offence. What has Israel to do with it?
Michael White concludes:
@Dannythefink Danny, you’re a good chap, and I know what you’re doing. But it’s not a healthy or wise reflex, quite the reverse. x
What does he mean by that? Answers in the comments below.

Here’s Michael White interviewing Gerald Kaufman at a meeting organised by the Middle East Monitor (“MEMO”). MEMO is a pro-Hamas organisation, run by Daud Abdullah: the man who supports an attack on the Royal Navy were it to stop Hamas arming itself.
