School heads are ‘enablers’ of anti-Semitism | 30Apr2009 | Orest Slepokura

I know, I know . . . We inhabit a hideously amoral age, when Ms Amiel’s husband, notorious jailbird Conrad Black, may air his views in the National Post and even wax morally indignant about this or that turn of events.

And here we have Barbara Amiel — still under a cloud of suspicion concerning complicity in her husband’s wrongdoing — voicing similar moral indignation. This is akin to performance art by a surrealist artist — like, say, having Bernie Madoff writing a column in the Wall Street Journal under the telltale header Protect Your Investments! . . .

Maggie’s Farmboy, I must say I was deeply impressed with your (the Marxists call it) sama-kritica. We must learn to nip anti-Semitism in the bud, even that latent portion of it that lurks deep within our psyche. Otherwise, who knows what the tragic denouement may be? On a related topic . . .DNA testing has shown that many Jews currently professing Judaism may, in fact, be, racially speaking, in no way truly genetically linked to the ancient Israelites. In fact, you may be more “Jewish” in a strict biological sense that either Bibi Netanyahu or Avi Lieberman. Weird — or what?

We’ve seen this movie before — haven’t we, Ken Besig? When, during the 1970s and 80s, the continent of Africa was being utterly debauched by such corrupt tinpot dictators as Uganda’s Idi Amin and Zaire’s Sese Mobutu, the former an overt anti-Semite, the latter a covert anti-Semite, the focus of Western liberal outrage was directed very largely at apartheid South Africa. It was during this period that Israel stood up shoulder to shoulder with her racist South African ally. Just how staunch this alliance was is reflected in a dumping-all-my-dishes memoir by the Mossad turncoat and whistle blower, Victor Ostrovsky [By Way of Deception, Stoddart: Toronto, 1990, p. 151]: “It was no secret, either, within the the Institute that we [i.e., the Israelis] helped South Africa with its nuclear program. We supplied them with most of their military equipment. We trained their special units. We worked hand in hand with them for years.” “[H]and in hand.” The phrase resounds.
