Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

Somehow I'm certain there would have been more outrage if Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had said this

It's not that often that I feel moved to link to an article by Christopher Hitchens, and even more seldom do I find myself agreeing with the whole thing. However, this is that article.

Why has there been no outcry from Daniel Pipes, Melanie Phillips, and all the other people who see imaginary anti-semitism everywhere? Confronted with a real, Nobel Peace Prizewinning, American who reckons it doesn't matter if Jews are marched off to gas chambers, they have nothing to say? What if President Obama had said that? Still nothing? Nothing from the Simon Wiesenthal Centre? Nothing from Elie Wiesel? Nothing from the Israeli government, usually so sensitive to the smallest slight?

What utter hypocrites.
