It was only a matter of time …
Forget ZIONISTS! That’s so last week. The first story has now appeared on Bristol Indymedia the sole point of which seems to be to identify that someone is up to no good on the basis that they are Jewish. Avoiding any obvious Jewish stereotypes, the story’s ingeniously called ‘The plot thickens’. Here’s the relevant bit:
Lloyds TSB Chairman, Sir Victor Blank, is a governor of Tel Aviv University, Chair of Union of Jewish Students/Hillel, a member of the Advisory Board of the United Jewish Israel Appeal and is involved in Labour Friends of Israel. UJS/Hillel assists members of the pro-Israel Union of Jewish Students, a group that works to silence pro-Palestinian voices on British campuses … Blank [is] believed to have influenced the move against Interpal. Hitting charities that help Palestinians only serves to support Israel by shutting off the trickle of aid that organisations like Interpal manage to get into Gaza and the Occupied Territories over years of Israel’s brutal siege.
So the story is that a man involved with some random organisations “is believed” (by whom?) to have influenced something or other somehow. And the compelling evidence for all this? Er, he’s Jewish!
