Classic antisemitism from Palestinians and the British establishment

"Jews were corrupt and brought tragedy on the Europeans ...Faced with the Jews' [evil] schemes, Europe could not bear their character traits, monopolies, corruption, and their control and climbing up positions in government,...In 1290, King Edward I issued a decree banishing the Jews [from England]. Following him were France, Germany, Austria, Holland, Czechoslovakia, Spain and Italy. The European nations felt that they had suffered a tragedy by providing refuge for the Jews. Later the Jews obtained the Balfour Declaration, and Europe saw it as an ideal solution to get rid of them..."
Please note that this is from the "moderate" Palestinian Authority TV.

The British Mainstream Media constantly tell you that Hamas (Chamas) are the extremists and the Palestinian Authority (who call themselves Fatach) are the moderate Palestinians who want peace. This is blatent lie.

The truth is that both Hamas and the PLO Mahmoud Abbas say openly that their goal is to wipe Israel off the map and murder every Jew they can get their hands on. Sometimes humour brings the message home more than actual documented facts so here is Latma TV with an explanation of the difference between Hamas and Fatah.

The obsessive hatred for Israel shown in Britain's MSM is simply antisemitism with a modern twist.

The breading grounds for British media antisemitism starts in the universities.

Despite overwhelming proof brought before the university's authoroties that an invited speaker to an Oxford debate was an out and out fraud and liar, it didn't bother them at all. This despicable woman says things that the British academic elite desperately want to believe, no matter whether it is true or not.

This irrational emotional need of the MSM as well as British academia to believe every piece of anti-Israel news, whether unconfirmed or even proved a hoax can only be due to a deep seated hatred for Jews.

Caroline Glick writes about how she participated in a university debate in London hoasted by the "Intelligence Squared" society, a society made up of the elite of British students.

She writes:
"I was prepared to conduct a civilized debate based on facts and reasoned argumentation. I expected it to be a difficult experience. I was not expecting to be greeted by a well-dressed mob. My pessimism about Europeans' capacity to avail themselves to reasoned, fact-based argumentation about Israel has only deepened from the experience."

Some further snippets from her article:

"...First, I can say without hesitation that I hope never to return to Britain. I actually don't see any point. Jews are targeted by massive anti-Semitism of both the social and physical varieties. Why would anyone Jewish want to live there?
As to visiting as an Israeli, again, I just don't see the point. The discourse is owned by anti-Israel voices. They don't make arguments to spur thought, but to end it, by appealing to people's passions. 
For instance, in one particularly ugly segment, Levy made the scurrilous accusation that Israel systematically steals land from the Palestinians. Both Dayan and I demanded that he provide just one example of his charge. And the audience raged against us for our temerity at insisting that he provide substantiation for his baseless allegation. In the event, he failed to substantiate his allegation. 
At another point, I was asked how I defend the Nazi state of Israel. When I responded by among other things giving the Nazi pedigree of the Palestinian nationalist movement founded by Nazi agent Haj Amin el Husseini and currently led by Holocaust denier Mahmoud Abbas, the crowd angrily shouted me down.  
I want to note that the audience was made up of upper crust, wealthy British people, not unwashed rabble rousers. And yet they behaved in many respects like a mob when presented with pro-Israel positions."

British Jewry refuses to understand that they are not dealing here with an uninformed but good meaning press that given enough information and facts, would balance its reporting to be less anti-Israel. What so many British Jews refuse to recognise is that there is an inbred antisemitism within the heart of the elite of Britain which cannot be combatted with mere truth.
