    The Nazis are Gone but Human Frailty Remains

    I used to spend a lot of time killing Nazis. In my head. I attacked them on the streets of Berlin, stabbed them in Occupied Paris, gunned them down with my Sten Gun on D-Day. I looked out the window at school and saw their planes blacken the English skies and myself pumping bullets into those planes while sitting in my Spitfire. I killed most Nazis during French and Classical Civilisation I think. For a long time it was a great regret of mine that they were long gone by the time I was old enough to join the army. In my teenage years I wished I’d been born in…

    What Mehdi No Solidarity for the Jews?

    Cross-posted from my criminally underused blog Marc’s Words It hasn’t been a great weekend for Jeremy Corbyn or his Labour Party. Deputy Leader Tom Watson said: “This is one of those moments when we have to take a long, hard look at ourselves, stand up for what is right and present the party as fit to lead the nation – or disappear into a vortex of eternal shame and embarrassment,” In the same article they reported Watson’s comments in The Guardian dropped yet another bombshell: “Watson’s intervention came as Corbyn was forced to “entirely disassociate” himself from an organisation whose website lists him as a member of its international advisory…

    Israel’s ‘Victory’ in Gaza

    Around the world Israel is under attack from headlines and tweets. In Gaza Palestinians are under attack from bullets. While questions are asked in the British Parliament and while journalists, television news pundits and the twitterati pound Israel for the number of dead at the Gazan border, Israeli politicians will be basking in the warmth of victory. Hamas did not pass. The border was maintained. Furthermore the Israelis sent a message to Hamas; It doesn’t matter how many people you send like lemmings to the border, we will kill them and do it in full glare of the international spotlight. We will not flinch. This is what the former head…

    That Time an Israeli Arab Wanted to Prove There Was No Antisemitism in Germany

    This incident is described in detail over in Haaretz: The 21-year-old victim of an anti-Semitic attack on the streets of Berlin has told German media that, despite the fact that he was wearing a traditional Jewish skullcap, he was not Jewish, but an Israeli Arab wearing the kippa as an experiment. “I’m not Jewish, I’m an Israeli, I grew up in Israel in an Arab family,” the man told German broadcaster Deutsche Welle. He was conducting what he termed an “experiment” in response to a warning from a friend that wearing a kippa in Germany was unsafe, saying he refused to believe this. An interview by Israeli broadcaster Kann identified…

    Syrian Chemical Weapons Targets Hit by West

    American, British and French air forces have launched coordinated strikes on the Syrian regime’s chemical weapons facilities. Apparently the Russians did not open fire on the jets invading Syrian air space. The Times: Britain, the United States and France launched more than 100 airstrikes in a “one time shot” against Syria early this morning to stop President Assad from using chemical weapons. It was double the firepower of a US attack against a single Syrian air base a year ago, James Mattis, the US defence secretary said. The Guardian: The US, UK and France have launched air strikes against what they allege are Syrian chemical weapons facilities in response to…

    The Toughest Sell Ever, Unilateral Israeli Withdrawal

    I think Israel must leave the West Bank for the good of the country and the Jewish people. I don’t think that leaving the West Bank will end our problems. I actually think it will create more. The West Bank will inevitably fall into the hands of Hamas or a group even more radical. The world will not thank us for leaving and may even argue that we still occupy areas we have withdrawn from as they do with Gaza. I know that when we leave the West Bank Jewish holy places will be off limits to Jews to pray in and that I am effectively calling for the ethnic…
