« Enough already! | Main | Sermon at Siah-Yitzhak Synagogue, Katamon, Jerusalem, June 9th 2007: 'Let Slanderers become Pilgrims' »

June 07, 2007




Earlier this week I wrote to Gordon Brown, Denis MacShane of Labour Friends of Israel and my constituency MP about my concern at the torrent of bile being directed at Israel in the UK on the occasion of the 40th anniversary of the Six Day War.

By return, I received a hand written note from Denis MacShane enclosing the text of a splendid article entitled "Time to Confront the New Anti-Semitism".

I think it must have been written shortly after the report produced by the Committee which he chaired last year which highlighted the rise of anti-semitism in the UK, and which you've posted about on your blog, Irene.

He did an interview with the Jerusalem Post here


Naturally, Norman Finkelstein detests MacShane's work. His article on the report is showcased by the Muslim Public Affairs Committee here.


and by ex-Ku Klux Klan member (and, to judge from his website, unreconstructed Jew-Hater) David Duke.


Now, what cause could possibly bring two such natural enemies together, Irene?

In the meantime, Denis MacShane needs our prayers! As far as I'm concerned he's one of the MPs who really deserves the title "Right Honourable"!
