No Doubt About It - Idiot of the Week

Yes, well said. Funny how Jews get blamed for everything, even antiSemitism -- sort of creates an existential quandary (for those that believe the crap coming out of this schmuck's poison pen.).

Idiot of the week: Israeli politics today make a holocaust the day after tomorrow credible

Self-designated "Half-Jew" Christian Priest: "Israeli politics today make a holocaust the day after tomorrow credible""I began with the recognition that the cancer of anti-semitism has not been cured. Tragically, Israel’s policies feed it - and when world Jewry defends Israeli policies right or wrong, then anger turns not only against Israel, but against all Jews. I wish it were mere rhetoric to say that Israeli politics today make a holocaust the day after tomorrow credible".

Paul Oestreicher in today’s Der Guardian.

Die Juden sind IHR Ungl├╝ck?

Classic anti-Semitism: "We’re not anti-Semites, the Jews make us anti-Semites". And as though that were not enough, Jews, writes Paul Oestreicher, if they continue defending their right to live as a nation, will disappear as a nation through "a holocaust the day after tomorrow". As deservedly as the first time around, Herr Oestreicher?

Oestreicher, a self-designed "half Jew", was a member of the Church of England’s general synod and director of the Centre for International Reconciliation, Coventry Cathedral; he is now a chaplain at the University of Sussex

Should any doubt still linger about the priest’s moral compass, here is a letter to the editors of Der Guardian (May 21, 2004) by a man old enough to know the difference between French resistance fighters attacking armed Nazis and Islamic radicals murdering and maiming unarmed Israeli commuters and diners:

"Those old enough to remember will recollect that the French Resistance were held to be heroes when they killed the German occupiers. I did not rejoice at German deaths then, any more than I rejoice at Israeli, American and, yes, British deaths now. But there is no difference".

And thus we have the pleasure to crown British Desmond-Tutu-wannabe Paul Oestreicher Judeoscope’s first Idiot of the Week. Way to go Paul! We are sure you won’t let us down in the future either!
