Where the Hard Left and Extreme Right Meet

One of the world's most notorious anti-Zionists takes aim at critics of a fellow Holocaust-denier

By Martin Bright

I am reluctant to draw attention to the vicious and misleading work of Lady Renouf, but her recent article Zionist Swarm Targets UK Revisionist Academic is so unpleasant that it merits further attention.

After accusing me of calling for the Iranian-backed television station, Press TV to be closed down, something I never did, Michele Renouf develops the most detailed description yet of the Zionist conspiracy of which I am supposed to be a part. This brings in Harry’s Place blog, Policy Exchange, the Jewish Chronicle, Anthony Julius and the Jewish financiers of Tony Blair’s Labour Party.

The piece is almost indistinguishable from the attacks on me from supporters of Ken Livingstone and the likes of Islamophobia Watch. Frankly, Lady Renouf and those on the left who choose to ally themselves with the Islamic totalitarian right deserve each other.
