Sharp And To The Point.

One of the side benefits to blogging is seeing someone take an idea or thought and doing it real justice, expressing it in a fashion that it deserves, with lucidity and a certain pointed edge, so I was very pleased to read IsraeliNurse’s recent post at CiF Watch pointing out the weaknesses in a Guardian editorial on arrest warrants and international law.

As an aside, I wonder how many Guardian editorials have been written criticising only Israelis, compared to the other 190+ nationalities in the world?

  1. CiFWatch is interesting. It seems you dispute their estmation of the level of anti-Semitism in Britain. However, they presented statistcs which you haven’t refuted. Why is that?

  2. er, no, you are not reading me correctly,

    I DO think antisemitism and related animuses is high in Britain, too high, but I am arguing over the FORM of it.

    I hope you see the difference?
