More on the Israel boycott vote

James Lewis
EUReferendum has more details on the UK journalists' union and its vote against Israeli products. The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) is one of two British journalist unions, and not all journalists belong to either. North views the whole farce as just a farce --- but I feel more pessimistic, given the upcoming vote by the UK university faculty union on its own anti-Israel boycott, and a recent move along similar lines by  an "artists' union" in Ireland. The anti-Israel moves come in the context of decades of anti-Israel and anti-American propaganda campaigns by the Euro-Left, which pervades major media like the BBC and Der Spiegel. The Euro-Left and the Eurabian fascists are making common cause, in a contemporary echo of the Hitler-Stalin Pact. There are far too many signs of Left-fascist penetration of universities, the educational system, the media and government to feel comforted. And of course we see exactly the same things over here, balanced somewhat by the conservative revival in the US.

I would like to be wrong on the return of Europe to its dark past. But the signs are ominous.

EUReferendum also has excellent updates  on the Tehran kidnapping of 15 Royal Navy sailors and marines. In London the Minister of Defense has apologized to Parliament, and a credible investigation is being mounted. Richard North, who has experience with the military bureaucracy, feels the real rot may be there. We have our own revolt of the bureaucracies in the CIA, State Department and the Pentagon. So we can only try to imagine what may be happening in Britain, where the socialist virus has penetrated far more deeply.

Finally, under the heading "Some Quiet Pride," Richard North and his co-editor Helen Szamuely rightly commend the brilliant and gutsy British Army action in Basra, as reported by Michael Yon last week.

If we only have the will to win, Iraq could be a historic success. It could change the Middle East forever. It could squeeze the mullahs to stop nuke development, putting the brakes on nuclear proliferation around the world. It could encourage moderate Muslims everywhere and deal a bloody setback to the forces of Islamic fascism.

So far the United States and the UK have not expended even a tiny fraction of our national strengths.

If we only have the will.
