‘Ah, There’s Another One’

Hitchens and Amis on English anti-Semitism

Print Email

Do you want to watch Christopher Hitchens discuss Anthony Julius’s recent book on English anti-Semitism (based around his latest essay) with contributing editor Jeffrey Goldberg?

How about, do you want to see Martin Amis talk about Philip Roth and how his father, the great (though not as great) novelist Kingsley, was a minor Jew-hater? English philo-Semites are great.

this is purely Martin Amis’s good influence on Hitchens. But Hitchens has also come up with some very anti-semitic remarks, he hopes jews are never safe, and if I recall, he won’t celebrate israel’s birthday.. think it’s all an illegitimate jewish enterprise. He’s also written an article “down with chanukah”, obviously he thinks chanukah is a problem, jews standing around a menorah singing. Hitchens thinks the greeks (that persecuted jews) were the good guys, he identifies with them.
