A Minor Detail

“Great man, shame about the anti-semitism”: David Aaronovitch paraphrasing Lady Diana Mosley on Adolf Hitler in August 2003.

“Once you’ve gone beyond that bollocks, this is a fascinating interview” Socialist Workers Party blogger ‘Lenin’ clearing his throat before praising his new hero Sheikh Hasan Nasrallah of Hezbollah in August 2006

What is the ‘bollocks’ he alludes to briefly before launching into an article praising the great hero of the masses? Oh, hardly anything worth dwelling on comrades, just some words uttered in haste…

“It is an open war until the elimination of Israel and until the death of the last Jew on earth.”

“If they [Jews] all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.”

In Lady Moseley’s favour she never pretended to be anything other than an apologist for swaggering demagogues and vicious racists.
