Backman, Crackman Apologies… (kind of)

Hat tip: Tim Blair

An apology  (well, sort of-) from Michael Backman  who is very sorry he got busted:

… denied he was anti-Semitic and said he believed Israel had the “absolute right to exist” …

In a letter to Jewish community leadership, Backman said he can now see “that some of the forms of words used did not adequately explain what I intended to say”.

“I do understand that an injudicious use of words and themes has caused upset in the Jewish community and for that I can only apologise,” Blackman said.

He’s been a journo for at least 10 years who doesn’t know how to use words?

Oh wait. He writes for The Age.

* Ah yes, before I forget it: “The accusation of anti-Semitism is itself hurtful and offensive,” Mr Backman said. 

Gee, who would have thought? Poor chap is hurt by what he said?

* Next time, use Keyser Trad to clarify  your statements, Backman. You’re rather unconvincing!

  1. * “that some of the forms of words used did not adequately explain what I intended to say”.

    I thought they were more than adequate in explaining what he “intended” to say. I sure
    got the message, crystal clear.

  2. Who ever cared what this wanker had ever said until now. He has, like many fools before him, had his fifteen minutes of fame.
