'I guarantee that the usual suspects will come back and cite Duke's rampant anti-semitism.'
Really? Ingrid Bergman was good in that movie, no? Or was it Kevin Spacey...Hmmm
No you are showing your pure ignorance by a mile non Jewish conspiracy. Whoever was saying this stuff if its perceived as being anti Israel, anti Semitic the Zionists go into overdrive here and elsewhere on this thread. They frequently resort to personal insult, demonisation and dehumanisation of the enemy>
@Peter - gagging for war, eh? and crowing.
Mehdi states "Israel isn't "worried". Netanyahu doesn't represent Israel as a whole. Polls show the Israeli public is opposed to a unilateral attack on Iran." But 'According to polls published last week,.. most of the Israeli public [and Peter],.. supports a U.S. strike on Iran, but is wary of sending the IDF to the task without the backing of the friendly superpower.
Netanyahu presented three examples in which his predecessors broke the American directive and made crucial decisions regarding the future of Israel: the declaration of independence in 1948, starting the Six Day War in 1967 and the bombing of the nuclear reactor in Iraq in 1981' - Haaretz
Since when did getting in protracted and angry debates on foreign policy equate to taking the moral high-ground Mehdi? You're no better than cattle.
o dear o dear o dear.
dog, bone, sound familiar
And what does that make you martin d. You talk unadulterated bullsxxt. Next time, reflect on what you want to say before posting
Pat Condell is great, he tells it like it is, come on he isn't saying anything that isn't true.
@catty 'It seems she [julia] shouts the loudest when it comes to anti semitism but will not speak about about the vile underhand racist remarks she makes'
yeah, better complain to the Yorkshire police. She can stand in the dock alongside the young Azhar Ahmad.
I notice our Julia is capitalizing the 'm' in 'me'.. viz: "You seem to have a pathological obsession with Me." hmmm...
The hawks are splitting blood. They will stop at nothing to silence Mehdi. I say he is courageous for speaking out. Well done for presenting an alternative narrative to war.
@ Li – What Hatred??? Look at the remarks labeled at me..are they acceptable to you? The EDL are microbe in relation to the spectre of Islamic Fascism, Hatred and Violence
@ Nathan, your telling lies, plain and simple, the Arabs have waged wars against Israel since it inception, tried to destroy, that is why it has had to become so militarily strong, no other countries in the region have had to undergo to same treatment. Your a wicked little Islamist scumbag by the sounds of it,” Israel is the instigator and founder of terror”. What a fucking terrible lie.
@ Susie, please answer my previous question to you, cant do it can you....
@ Pritti, I will blow the brains out of a fucking terrorist who came to kill my family or friends, any normal person would, its called defending yourself. They are not ‘so called terrorists’, they are Terrorists murdering scum, your a muddled minded islamist lefty fuckwit. is this type of numbskull I’m debating with, yawn.

Wicked Islamic scumbag. Fxxk this and fxxk that. Are these the writings of a person you could believe in.
Julia has laid bear for all to see, the true voice of Israel. The Israelis would not let the Palestinians live in peace let alone have a state they could call their own.
Let this be a wake up call to you: Julia's twisted diatribe tell you all you need to know about Israel and the voices of reason. The sad thing is that she does speak for many Israelis.
Julia's trade mark it seems is to give out bile, but weeps a thousand words when it is directed at her. Funny thing is what she says is mostly predictable.
On top of everything else, Julia is now supporting the EDL. What a surprise.
@sir michael - pat condell is not well known as a bigot - he tells the truth and sometimes the truth hurts - and some lefty fuckwits take offence on behalf of the religitards that pat is ridiculing... that's all.
Oxford may be a higher-ranked institution that wherever Fawkes went, but Hasan isn't correct by mere dint of going there. I went to Cambridge but wouldn't dream of being so arrogant to belittle somebody else's education.
Israel needs permanent warfare with other countries in order to take away from the fact that they have to reach a settlement with the Palestinians. That is what all this Iran rhetoric is all about, just another pointless war. Poor Israel. Poor me. The treaty with Israel was forced upon the Egyptian people. Thankfully now they have a chance to reject it. I wonder why the Egyptians could possibbly be hostile to Israel, given that Israel has been such a wonderful friend to Egypt. Methinks it is you who suffering from a persecution and insecurity complex.
WHAT REASONS EXACTLY???? To start a potential start a new conflict??? I thought this was about Palestinian settlements? Who said anything about Egypt licking Israel’s boots, thats your insecure perception?
Now all over blogosphere that poor, dear Mehdi is so "thick" that he thinks Bill Clinton was the "sitting US president" in 2005. That's what he says above. Now if he can't tell the difference between George W Bush and Bill Clinton, this guy is retarded. But at least we now know just how credible he is on foreign affairs... See he's corrected it now but that sort of howler shows the measure of the man....
As I was saying, Julia often resorts to personal insults when she is losing the argument, as you can see from the last paragraph in my last posting.
Someone needs to take to the streets and murder Paul Staines - with a gun of course.
Mehdi Hasan is a contributing writer for the New Statesman and the co-author of Ed: The Milibands and the Making of a Labour Leader. He was the New Statesman's senior editor (politics) from 2009-12.
