Sometimes you just can't win

Here's a strange piece in the Jerusalem Post by Sean Gannon. Strange because it suggests that Argentina should not have recently expelled the noted Holocaust denier Bishop Richard Williamson because of its own antisemitic past. But how much more criticism would Argentina have attracted had it refused to deport him? I bet Mr Gannon would have had something unpleasant to say about that in view of Argentina's antisemitic past.

Presumably Sean Gannon feels that Britain shouldn't have gone to war with Hitler because of King John's imprisonment and torture of the English Jews and Edward I's expulsion of them altogether?

Ibrahim ibn Yusuf gives an Argentinian's response here.
