How Far Will the Left Go?

To what depths will the left go to allow antisemitism to go unchecked? Consider darling of the left, Professor Ilan Pappe. Pappe recently tetsified on behalf of antisemite Raed Salah who is being banned from England. Salah has said:

“We have never allowed ourselves, and listen well, we have never allowed ourselves to knead the bread for the breaking of the fast during the blessed month of Ramadan with the blood the children. And if someone wants a wider explanation, you should ask what used to happen to some of the children of Europe, whose blood would be mixed in the dough of the holy bread. God Almighty, is this religion? Is this what God wants? God will confront you for what you are doing.”

The old blood libel as sure as night follows day.

Pappe says:

" the Appellant did not invoke the blood libel in this or any other speech, and made a clear distinction between Jews as a race and the actions of Israeli officials. The words used by the Appellant on this occasion did not amount to blood libel because he did not refer to Jewish bread; the message of the address was not anti-Semitic or even anti-Zionist, but directed to the violation of Muslim rights in Jerusalem."

As Lucy Lips at Harry's Place says:

"I have two questions.

1. Why is Ilan Pappe, a well-known Israeli anti-Zionist, defending medieval anti-Semitism by resorting to a critical analysis of a text that not even an unlettered schoolchild would believe?

2. Who the hell do these fucking people think they’re kidding anymore?"

Good question, Lucy. And maybe I can ask what scum will dare use Pappe as a credible source after this?


  1. When I read that earlier today, it made me wonder why these people are considered intelligent.

  2. Maybe it's like PT Barnum allegedly said; there's a sucker born every minute.

  4. This is virtually the same as deleted.

    As I argued recently elsewhere, when arguments are overly theoretical and do not take the situation as it is into account because some academics want to reverse reality, it's apt to be ridiculous.

    The positivist view of the world has gained more credence for me as I advocate for a natural law world.
