How ignorant Britain sneers and sniggers at the threat from Iran | Melanie Phillips

Posted on

I am a huge admirer of Melanie Phillips, I don’t agree with all of her analysis but on certain subjects (the threat of Iran being one where I am probably in full agreement) is spot on the money.

I watched the edition of Question Time she speaks of in her blog post and I must say that the audience was baying almost before she had spoken about Iran and its new (moderate?) leader.  Of course her views are well known but on this subject she couldn’t be more right.  Maybe because she happens to be a Jew and she has an opinion about Israel where she isn’t criticizing the state of Israel, she isn’t self depreciating; that people find her difficult to agree with.  I’m sorry to say but watching the programme made me feel as if there is a dirty little line of antisemitism running through some sections of British society.

Iran expressly wants the state of Israel to be wiped from the map and the Jews who live there to be pushed into the Mediterranean Sea.  The new leader may be perceived as a moderate, the mood music is soothing for the Yanks but make absolutely no mistake that if they get the chance they will support Terror (Hesbolah) and they will strike against Israel.  Iran, based on the evidence in the media is a de-stabilizing force in the region.

Read the blog-post and watch the show, you should find it uncomfortable.
