A has-been politician condemns Â Israel’s suspected hit on Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, theÂ supplier of arms for Hamas terrorists:
Mr Fraser said the Jewish state could no longer use the Holocaust as an excuse to justify state-sanctioned murder, and criticism of its policies should not be dismissed as anti-Semitism.
The first thing to say about Fraser’s claim is that it’s false. If Israel killed Mabhouh, it was not because of the Holocaust but because of the threat he posed to the lives of Israelis today. The second thing to say is that given this undoubted fact, Fraser’s suggestion that Jews are just trading on the Holocaust dead is morally despicable, and bordering on anti-Semitism.
I’d say anti-semitism comes with the territory….
