Old Holborn Does it Again!

OH is hosting and positively cheerleading yet another anti-semitic rant-fest. Although frequently on the side of the angels OH has allowed all reason, history, politics and reality to fly out of the window upon a Qassam rocket over the Hamas/Israel war.

The simple truth is that Israel has a right to exist and defend itself. Whilst I’m sure the IDF would much prefer to meet Hamas on the open field of battle that option has been denied to them. That is the choice of Hamas and the blood of killed and maimed Palestinian children are on their hands just as much as the blood of killed and maimed Israeli children are.

I was going to quote some of the choice comments but you can imagine what they’re like. The usual stuff about ZioNazi Stormtroopers and even a (semi-) literate comment from someone who calls themself, “non semite anglo-celt”… Fortunately, there are a lot of folks there giving OH a reality check. Go read the whole thing.

    If you don’t like my blog, don’t go there. Just because I have a different opinion is a good thing surely?

    Which OH is exactly why I go there. Because I frequently (though clearly not always) like your blog and because I think a difference of opinion is vital. So why “yawn” because I fundamentally disagree with you on an issue if you also thing diversity of opinion is a “good thing”?


    I say I’m a libertarian, you say you’re a libertarian so let’s all form a fucking hallelujah chorus.
