Intolerance – Again

Hot on the heels of the furore generated by the odious Rush Limbaugh last week comes a report from Israel which suggests that 2009 saw anti-Semitic incidents across Europe at a post war high.

This report, from the Jewish Agency for Israel, headed by former Soviet dissident Nathan Sharansky, details hundreds of incidents across France, the Netherlands, and, sorry to say, the UK.

It’s clear that there is some correlation between the increase in attacks and the invasion of Gaza by the IDF, which suggests that someone has difficulty in distinguishing between specifically Israeli, and more generally Jewish, actions.

Whatever the reason, this merely emphasises the need for anyone, regardless of religious affiliation, to be vigilant against prejudice.
