Gross and Littlejohn take aim at British anti-Semitism

"The War on British Jews" stirs Tempest on Tube

[posted at Israel Insider]

 A prior article on this subject, and this one, appear on Tom Gross Media.

The Richard Littlejohn program, "The War On Britain's Jews," which aired on British TV on Monday night, can now be seen online in six parts.

The BBC shelved this program when they heard it would focus on British anti-Semitism, and it was instead shown on Channel 4.

While some mainstream reviewers in the British media welcomed Littlejohn's program, some on the left were extremely nasty about it. No doubt they felt uncomfortable having their anti-Semitism pointed out to them and tried to change the subject. One reviewer in the Guardian, for example, started talking about "Israel's war crimes against the Palestinians" -- an interesting remark given the fact he was meant to be writing about British anti-Semitism -- and called the subject of anti-Semitism "tedious".

On British radio, George Galloway, MP dismissed the program by saying: "Richard Littlejohn is a driveling guttersnipe who long ago fell out of the gutter into the sewer. This man is a moron."

As Littlejohn, a leading British journalist, is finding out, when non-Jews condemn anti-Semitism, they can themselves become the target of anti-Semites.

One of the problems is that the mainstream media just don't report many anti-Semitic attacks in the UK, which are only mentioned in the Jewish media. For example, a British ultra-orthodox Jew was thrown into a river in north London by a gang making anti-Semitic remarks two weeks ago. They smashed his glasses on the ground before doing so, so that he wouldn't be able to see clearly once in the water. He was rescued by a couple that walked past shortly after.

Still, anti-Semitism in Britain remains below that of other countries. For example, in Ukraine yesterday, there were three anti-Semitic attacks in a single day. No serious injuries were sustained.

In related developments:

* The latest prominent international personalities to sign a petition condemning the proposed British academic boycott of Israel are the Dalai Lama and Mikhail Gorbachev.

* The U.S. House of Representatives yesterday passed a resolution criticizing the proposed British academic boycott of Israel. Rep. Patrick Murphy (D- Pennsylvania) is the resolution's prime sponsor.
