UK pol in scandal describes soldier as ‘bloody Jew’
Jewish Telegraphic Agency ^ | June 7, 2013 1:21pm

Posted on 06/08/2013 5:22:47 PM PDT by Olog-hai

A British member of parliament under fire in a corruption scandal was caught on camera describing an Israeli soldier as a “bloody Jew.”

Patrick Mercer made the remark to a BBC reporter posing as a lobbyist in the investigation. The footage was broadcast Thursday. …

“An 18-year-old girl, wearing a uniform, with her sort of hair in plaits, and crazy jewelry and open-toed sandals, with a rifle up my nose,” he said.

“Who the ---- are you, you know? ‘Well I’m a soldier.’ Are you? You don’t look like a soldier to me. You look like a bloody Jew,” Mercer said. …

The guy was a Tory?

Benjamin Disraeli would be deeply saddened to hear. For shame.

Leave the antisemitism to the leftists.

If he died, that would be tantamount to Israel declaring war on the UK. But then again, our ambassadors in Libya and Afghanistan are killed by Islamic terrorists with impunity . . . so maybe it’s a different world, eh?

UK shows all the signs of being a lost cause, it has clearly determined to go straight to hell ... as can be seen by this stinking UK politician-POS’s filthy Nazi attitude.
(Many people now say that it was a shame USA rescued UK in WW2, that their anti-Christian, anti-Jewish attitudes show that they didn’t merit being saved. I try to disagree...)
But be that as it may, all this so-called “bloody Jew” IDF guard had to do was “bloody” up the visiting sh*t-faced Pig a bit.

The necessary message would have been communicated.

yes, USA is being led down the same path to Hell

we have to admit that (but UK appears a couple of years ahead of USA in its descent, maybe anyway...)

pray for all the remaining good people in both nations

I can just imagine this clown, speaking with a Cockney accent, saying in a loud voice, “You loo’ li’ a Bloody Jew, to mey!” And, then, laughing uncontrollably at his own good sense of humor. (Even if he does not have a Cockney accent in real life, it makes a good burlesque of this guy’s egregious moral ugliness.)

Only, I doubt anyone else on the scene was laughing.

He beclowned himself.

England’s anti-Semitism runs deep and wide, and — really — other than sin and Satan, there really is no explanation for it.

And, full disclosure: I am the first to admit that there are many evil Jews out there doing great harm. And I have no trouble calling them out. Can you hear me, George Soros, Harvey Weinstein, and Chuck Schumer?

But, pre-emptively hating the entire Nation that birthed Holy Writ, the Prophets, the Apostles, the Scriptures, and — shhh! — the Messiah (Christ the LORD)?

I don’t think so.

Okay, I admit: listing both Holy Writ and the Scriptures is a redundancy. My apologies.

The one thing about Brits I’ve never understood is their preference for Muslim Arabs over Jews. It’s just bizarre.

A disturbingly large number of English upper class men are, to use their term, “Poofters”. Muslims are legendary for their homosexual proclivities, so the English preference for Arabs over Jews may be more understandable in light of the foregoing.

I think its a shame so many supposedly intelligent Americans actually believe their country saved the UK.

What preference?. Most British are sick of the Israel-Palestine issue and frankly long ago stop caring.

An utter and disgusting lie.

The Jewish population of Great Britain lives happily without any major anti-semitism. In fact, Judaism is openly celebrated as a long standing and vibrant part of British culture.

British TV ran pro-Jewish documentaries across all five of its network channels last year. Did America?.

British Jewish entertainers, writers, politicians and businesspeople openly celebrate their Jewishness. The London East End Jew, with his sharp wit and mouth is as well loved and known a cultural icon as the Glaswegian or the Cockney.

The current British Prime Minister is part Jewish. As is the deputy PM. As is the leader of the opposition party(Labour). So you have Jewish-descended people in the three most important political positions in the UK.

Are Obama, Biden and Romney Jewish?......

The comments about Britain are simply obnoxious. They are a disgusting slander on the vast, vast majority of the British people. Who are no more antisemitic than their American cousins.

The UK is the nation that rejected the naked antisemitism of the 1930’s Fascists, and continues to reject the antisemitism of the BNP and other fringe neo-nazi parties and groups. The nation that stood alone against Hitler, while America and others stood by. And the nation that liberated Belsen and saved Jewish lives.

To suggest that the British people are antisemitic OR that the jews of Britain are victims of mass cultural or physical antisemitism is a downright and disgusting lie.

Methinks the Scotsman doth protest too much.

Please read the following post by Debbie Schlussel.
http://www.debbieschlussel.com/63210/conservative-british-mp-israeli-soldier-looked-like-a-bloody-jew/

Schlussel gives a grocery list of examples of British anti-Semitism that includes the following gem:
“They seemed to relish in sending Jews back to Hitler-controlled Europe, to be murdered in the Holocaust. While in Palestine, the British soldiers often made anti-Semitic trinkets and dolls to mock the Jews.”

As far as credibility goes, I know who she is. She has survived for years as a blogger who tells it like it is.

As she is Jewish, I think she knows the score on how Jews are treated in England.

Here is another article (authored by Melanie Phillips, dated 2007) discussing British antisemitism worthy of your time:
http://www.city-journal.org/html/17_4_anti-semitism.html

Phillips’ article includes the following statement:
“At the heart of this ugly development is a new variety of anti-Semitism, aimed primarily not at the Jewish religion, and not at a purported Jewish race, but at the Jewish state.”

And what do you say about MP Mercer? That he really is a great friend of the Jews, too?

Sorry, not buying what you are selling.

If Cameron and crew are part Jewish, it matters not to me. Why do Cameron and his cronies pander and cave to the Muslims at every opportunity while habitually showing the fist to true British patriots such as Tommy Robinson and his EDL?

I believe know the score, dude. Do you?

Yes. Debbie Schlussel. She has her shortcomings. Her awareness of the twin dangers of Islam and anti-Semitism are nearly impeccable.

By the way, I note your argument is ad hominem.

Guess I won. ;-)

Debbie Schussel is American. Has never lived in the UK. Are you for real suggesting she knows what UK Jews live like?. By that ‘logic’, any American with red hair is an expert on Scotland and Ireland!. What a ridiculous argument.

Schussel is a loony tune. She makes Coulter look like Thomas Jefferson. You cannot credibly suggest her as a serious source. This is the woman who claims Clint Eastwood hates America because he made Flags of Our Fathers. Seriously, look it up.

As for her list, and your example:
‘They seemed to relish in sending Jews back to Hitler-controlled Europe, to be murdered in the Holocaust. While in Palestine, the British soldiers often made anti-Semitic trinkets and dolls to mock the Jews.”’

....that is an absolute f*cking lie. An absolute lie. British soldiers did no such thing. A vile slander on men who are no longer alive to refute such crap. So not only is she a loony, she is a nasty piece of crap who spews lies about the army who fought longest than anyone to defeat the Nazis and save Europe and the Jews, inc liberating Belsen.

I like Melanie Phillips, and she at least IS British. So unlike Debbie Schittmouth, she actually knows what she is talking about. And you note that she herself points out that any UK antisemitism today is not religious or cultural, but political, and aimed at the state, not the people, religion or culture.

Oh, btw, did you actually read the comments section on her link?. One poster who is Jewish and has lived in both the US and UK states openly that they found the US much more antisemitic!. Oh, the irony.

‘And what do you say about MP Mercer? That he really is a great friend of the Jews, too?’

No, he is an idiot. And I am appalled and embarrassed at this clown and his comments. And he should be hung out to dry for them. I also think Britain and the 60m people who live here shouldnt be slandered as antisemites because of ONE idiot.

I dont ‘protest too much’. UK antisemitism (or more to the point England, as Scotland Wales and NI have no history of it) is minor, both historically and now. Contrary to US myth and hype (and the US is in no position to lecture frankly). What antisemitism has existed has historically been confined elements of the upper class OR to the worst knuckle dragging elements of the working class. Britain rejected fascism and antisemitism in the 30’s and it continues to do so now with the BNP. And England has had a very small amount of antisemitism

When your country was declaring a black person to be less than a human being (Dred Scott), Britain was about to elect a Jewish Prime Minister. Britain has had many prominent Jewish politicians. Where oh where is America’s Jewish President?. VP?. 35 after we elected Thatcher, you cant even elect a woman, let alone a Jew.

Most UK ‘antisemitism’ is aimed at Israel and the palestine issue, and many would argue is not antisemitism and such a word is used as a cheap tactic.

Britain is no more an antisemitic nation than the US, and the assertion on FR that it is an antisemitic nation is one vile little slander I will NOT let pass.

‘I believe know the score, dude. Do you?’

More than you. I actually live here. I know my country better than you or anyone here ever will.

You gave up the game with that gem, I am afraid.

I get it: Brits are not anti-Semitic, just rabidly anti-Zionist . . . Oh, and pro-Palestinian (read pro-Muslim).

Actually most Brits couldnt care less about the Isr vs Pal issue. Most are sick of it after decades of it every night on the TV news.
