The Jewish Chronicle Moves to the Racist Far-Right of the
Zionist Movement

The Jewish Chronicle has been a pro-Zionist paper since at
least 1939 if not before.  But until
Pollard’s editorship, it tried to maintain some form of balance and debate, if
only within the Zionist circle.  It even
carried letters from anti-Zionists such as myself.

Despite my many differences with  Paul (I’m the only person to have
successfully taken the Jewish Chronicle to the Press Council (the precursor of
the PCC), I’ll readily concede that in Zionist terms Paul was a thoughtful editor.  In particular he wrote a perceptive editorial ‘The White Book’ on the plight of the Jews of Argentina and the attacks on Jacob Timmerman in particular.

Editor Geoffrey D Paul employed as a columnist the maverick Chaim
Bermant, who advocated talking to the PLO and pointed to an unhealthy alliance
between French Jews and the Front Nationale.

The Jewish Chronicle’s Take on an Inoffensive Statement with the Muslim Council of Britain – Presumably it Believes Civilians should be Targeted During War
Despite the many ritual calls for his dismissal, Paul kept
Bermant, the author of  The Cousinhood, in his employ.  Such a thing would be inconceivable under
Pollard, the ideal Police State.
In his latest escapades he condemned an anodyne jointstatement 
between the Board of
Deputies and the Muslim Council of Britain on anti-Semitism and Islamaphobia  blogging to this effect on the Telegraph web site (where else!?) 
Stephen Pollard’s Racist Rant in Telegraph

Even more disgracefully he apologised for the Jewish
Chronicle having carried a charity appeal of the Disasters Emergency Committee
for the people of Gaza, (the Zionist ultras
would presumably prefer the children and civilians of Gaza to go without clean
water, tents and food).

The Inoffensive Statement That Riled the  Overt Racists in Britain’s Jewish Community
Pollard has no shame as he plays to the gallery of the most
racist and genocidal of Britain’s Zionists. 
He might ask why the Jewish Chronicle readership continues to decline
and why, 20 years ago the Board of Deputies could mobilise 25,000 Jews to
‘Stand by Israel’ during its various invasions and attacks on Lebanon but today
can barely muster 1,500.  Perhaps most
Jews have some ethics unlike the crazed racist that is Stephen Pollard.
