Melanie Phillips: Criticism of Islam Justified But Anti-Semitism “A Unique Derangement”

Diversity Macht Frei
May 8, 2018

One of the most striking similarities between Jews and Muslim is their total inability to see things from the outsider’s point of view. All of history, all present-day events, are incorporated into a paranoid victimhood complex of almost infinite scope. People “hate” them for no reason. Their own actions have no influence on the existence of this “hate”. Both of the Semitic tribes exhibit a fundamental inability to comprehend how it is that members of their outgroup (the goyim or the kuffar) might reasonably conclude that their countries would be better off without them in it.

We have a particularly striking example of this moral myopia here from the Jewish journalist Melanie Phillips. Criticism of Muslims is justified she says, but “there can never be any excuse” for the criticism of Jews. “Antisemitism”, according to her, “is a unique derangement based on lies and demonsation”.
