The article fails to inform readers that the Orthodox Jews in question were members of an extremely marginal anti-Zionist movement (with almost no support in the British Jewish community) known as Neturei Karta – a group “founded on the idea that Zionism is a demonic force”, and one which often provides a fig leaf for anti-Semites around the globe.

Palestinian antisemitism is one of the more under-reported political pathologies within the region, and the failure of journalists and editors to deal honestly with the injurious impact of this enduring hatred contributes to the British public’s egregious misunderstanding of both the root cause of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict and the endemic backwardness and underdevelopment within Palestinian society.
It’s actually quite extraordinary that a publication which seems to pride itself on peeling off the superficial layers of a story to reveal to readers the story behind the story, published a review of a book featuring the Tamimis without giving readers even the slightest inclination that the family, and the protests they stage, represents something akin to Palestinian street theater, a Pallywood production packaged as real news.

To teach people to relate to the overwhelming majority of Jews, that is Jews do not agree with BDS, as apologists for apartheid, Nazism or colonialism is to teach people to relate to those Jews in an antisemitic way. If BDS says that Israel is apartheid and that anybody who does not agree with boycotting Israel is a supporter of apartheid, then it is setting up a framework for Jew-baiting. If anti-Zionists say that Israel is genocidal, is like the Nazis, that Zionism is similar to Nazism, then they are inciting people to treat Jews as though they were Nazis.
Beyond the unfounded, vitriolic allegations, the pictures appearing in the Palestinian Health Ministry’s report highlight the submission’s total lack of credibility. Here are some examples:

Avnery’s Nazi comparison is completely without merit, and the decision by Irish Times editors to publish such a smear – an analogy considered antisemitic per the EUMC Working Definition of Antisemitism – represents another example of how, when it comes to Israel, even the most hateful, offensive and incendiary accusations are not off-limits.
Are we really to believe that when Belkhiri wrote “Hitler didn’t kill all the Jews, he left some…so we [would] know why he was killing them”, she really meant “Hitler didn’t kill all the Zionists, he left some…so we [would] know why he was killing them”? And, when she wrote “”F—ing Jews, I hate them so much”, she meant to write “F—ing Zionists, I hate them so much”?

Charging Jews with engaging in behavior or embracing values similar to the Nazis is a moral and historical inversion on par with suggesting that African-Americans have adopted the values of white slave masters – a disgusting, intellectually unserious invective that should have been robustly refuted by the BBC Radio 4 host.
