Feared, allegedly. But not fast enough with the cover-up
Professor Finkelstein is the son of two Holocaust survivors. The rest of his parents’ relatives did not survive. Yes, the publisher of the work that led to Naz Shah being suspended for alleged anti-Semitism is Jewish. You really couldn’t make it up.
But when it was pointed out to The Great Guido that the author of the work that had caused Naz Shah so much trouble was Jewish, there was no pause for understanding, no appreciation that the situation was not quite as clear-cut as had been made out. Instead, there was abusiveness, dismissal, and then evasion and concealment.
Freely translated, that means Paul Staines, or whoever had been delegated control of the Guido Fawkes Twitter feed, had decided that Jewish opinion was only useful to him and his rabble if it met with their approval. As Professor Finkelstein’s work, which attempts to show understanding for the situation of Palestinian Arabs, is inconvenient to their attempt to undermine the Labour Party, it is dismissed.
The Fawkes rabble has its own problem with selective Jew-hatred. And it’s been caught bang to rights trying to cover it up. Another fine mess, once again.
