[anti-semitism] in the highest places

Melanie Phillips writes: We know that the British intelligentsia, the British left and an alarming proportion of the British public either propagate or have uncritically swallowed the Big Lie about Israel’s aggression in general and the false view of the Lebanon war in particular … But Ms Beckett is the Foreign Secretary in the government of Tony Blair, supposedly the best friend Israel has in Europe. This is precisely the point and is one reason Gavin Ayling set up his petition. It will never go away though, no matter how many petitions are signed, as it is institutionalized, especially in the FCO.

James, completely OT. I have repeatedley noted that your comments counter does not show other than '0' despite there being comments in the follow on section in your longer posts. I don't know if it's the same for the shorter ones.

I can understand the blogs disdain for my lack of erudition but please programme in some manners!

More relevantly, I am attracted back to blogs not only for their obvious appeal but because of the knowledge added in the comments section.

Scots Tory B, I've addressed this now in a separate post above just for you. People such as yourself must not be lost to us.
