A welcome friend

THE New York Times has admitted that Jews are the main victims of hate crime in New York City.

It also wrote that the real reason antisemitism rarely gets any coverage in the liberal mainstream media is that they “can’t find a formula to blame it on conservatives” as it emanates from a variety of sources including the left themselves.

Three years ago, American professor Raymond Cohen warned that anti-Zionism is now “rampant” on American campuses and that leftists in general have become more antisemitic because they see us as “white and wealthy” so we no longer fit their definition of victimhood.

These are problems equally apparent on British campuses and in the Labour Party. But the right remains generally supportive — witness Brazil’s strongly pro-Israel new president, Jair Bolsonaro, who has vowed to move the Brazilian embassy to Jerusalem.

Disgruntled BBC leftists sourly tried to smear him as “far right”, but to us and Israel he is a welcome new friend and ally.
