Oh dear. This is becoming something of a habit. Everytime some loathsome fascist or racist rattlesnake gets accused of being anti-Semitic, what do they say? But I’m pro-Israeli!! I just love Israel's attitude to Muslims (i..e they kill them).
Of course this may fool those who were taken in by the anti-Zionist = anti-Semitism nonsense but then there is no better qualification for being a supporter of Zionism, than being an anti-semite. After all, if someone says they believe Jews don’t belong in this country and they should all go ‘back’ to Palestine, then they are either an anti-semite or a Zionist.
First we had Michal Kaminsky, the racist neanderthal who leads Poland’s Law and Justice Party whose answer to charges of anti-Semitism is that he loves Israel. And he had the Israel Ambassador Ron Prossor there besides him just to prove the point.
Now we have Holocaust denying Nick Griffin also playing the same song. To quote from the man himself on tonights BBC Question Time:
“there are Nazis in Britain and they loathe me because I have brought the BNP from being frankly an anti-Semitic and racist organisation into being the only political party which in the clashes between Israel and Gaza stood full-square behind Israel’s right to deal with Hamas terrorists.”And of course he’s right, in his own way. It is true that such is the depth of the BNP’s hatred of people who are Muslim, that it can only applaud the efforts of Israel when it physically annihilates Palestinians. Quite why this makes Griffin not an anti-Semite is difficult to understand, except according to the warped Zionist ‘logic’ that assorted fascists and racists love, it is only opposition to Israel’s actions and the Israeli state itself is somehow ‘anti-Semitic’.
But as the Guardian of April 10th 2008 reported: ‘BNP seeks to bury antisemitism and gain Jewish votes in Islamophobic campaign’.· Ruth Smeed, spokesperson for the Board of Deputies of British Jews explained that
‘The BNP website is now one of the most Zionist on the web - it goes further than any of the mainstream parties in its support of Israel’.Which exactly confirms Griffin’s argument. Zionism and anti-Semitism – like peas in a pod.
