Most of the overt racism I see and hear tends to be directed at Muslims or Eastern European immigrants, since those are the two most visible out-groups in Britain, but that doesn't mean that there isn't plenty of nasty, old-fashioned anti-semitism knocking about.
"You have to admit," a guy said to me during last year's war in Lebanon, "There's a strong pro-Zionist bias in the media."
Well, you don't have to be Simon Wiesenthal to spot the dark implication in that statement.
Personally, I find the notion that Jews control the media to be inherently laughable - after a night in front of Footballers' Wives, Pop Idol, Fame Academy and Wife Swap, it's patently obvious that the media is controlled by Satanists.
It wouldn't surprise me if the names of ITV's Saturday night shows could be rearranged to form a dark litany lauding Lucifer himself - I could easily imagine Cat Deeley or Ant and Dec wailing cacophonous, caterwauling black hosannas to the Father of Lies whilst slaughtering she-goats on an altar of human skulls.
Still, the ultimate proof against any Hebraic influence in media generally, and news in particular, is surely this article from the BBC today...
Israel Recalls "Naked Ambassador"
Israel has recalled its ambassador to El Salvador after he was found drunk and naked apart from bondage gear.
Reports say he was able to identify himself to police only after a rubber ball had been removed from his mouth...
..."We're talking about behaviour that is unbecoming of a diplomat,"... foreign ministry spokeswoman Zehavit Ben-Hillel told reporters.
The very notion that a story this entertaining could pass the censorious pen of the professional propagandist beggars belief.
On an unrelated note, this is stupendous misbehaviour from the ambassador, debauchery of which his country can be proud. If British ambassadors and cultural attaches were rolling up in gutters in Mexico City or Moscow, I'd be learning a second language before you could say "absinthe."
P.S. Incidentally, it may interest you to know that the German word for "Ambassador" is "Botshafter".
The Botschafter, predictably, lives in a Botschaft.
