MARY, MARY, VERY CON­TRARY

The Jewish Chronicle - - News -

HERE’S why the Lon­don Re­view of Books, house mag of left-lean­ing literati, has lit­tle good to say of Is­rael. Its Jewish ed­i­tor Mary-Kay Wilmers told the

Sun­day Times: “I’m un­am­bigu­ously hos­tile to Is­rael be­cause it’s a men­da­cious state. They do things that are just so im­moral and coun­ter­pro­duc­tive and, as a Jew, es­pe­cially as a Jew, you can’t jus­tify that.”

“My peo­ple” [that’s us, in case you won­dered] have a re­spon­si­bil­ity to speak up, she thinks. And there’s more: “What Cherie Blair said about be­ing a sui­cide bomber if she’d been brought up in Gaza, I can ab­so­lutely see that point.”
