Sundown: Breitbart Site Finds Nazi Inspiration

Plus EU notices Israeli Arabs, Panetta in Turkey, and more

Print Email
From the Big Journalism Website.(Media Matters)

Reports his friend David Frum: “A friend of theirs once took Christopher Hitchens and his wife Carol Blue to dinner at Palm Beach’s Everglades Club, notorious for its exclusion of Jews. ‘You will behave, won’t you?’ Carol anxiously asked Christopher on the way into the club. No dice. When the headwaiter approached, Christopher demanded: ‘Do you have a kosher menu?’”

“European Union document urges that the body step up pressure on Israel not only for its treatment of Palestinians in the territories but also of its own Arab citizens.”

I wonder, does the EU have similar documents about other nations in the Middle east, in Africa, in Latin America or South Asia – or even the USA, India or China?

Or is this part of the double-standard that the EU uses when it comes to Jews and Israel?

Geoff M says:

More importantly, does the EU have similar documents about its own treatment of its Muslim population? What with the ghettoization, burka ban, rampant discrimination… surely something must be done!

Just one more reason to root for a complete meltdown of the eurozone. They deserve every bit of pain they get.

Please see Little Green Footballs where they show the original 1930′s graphic that was altered for Breitbart to use.

Marc … you’re article was better. Celebrating the birth of Jesus really is (or perhaps should be) off limits.

In the JTA article, the author attempts to say Jews should celebrate our flexibility/adaptation … but all religions are flexible/adapt or they disappear. Hardly seems like something that separates us from the Hindus, Muslims, etc. as he claims. Regardless, not finding much value in this jesus character (and the consequences thereof) is what separates us from Christians, and it is that distinction that we should call to mind.

Plus, Hanukah is so much better.
