Richard Littlejohn’s illuminating C4 expose on the Left’s rampant anti-semitism was originally offered to the BBC. That weaselly organisation, which encompasses treachery, giving aid and comfort to our enemies, anti-democratic bias, class warfare and a variety of other nasty habits, also does anti-semitism (quite apart from its hatred of Israel, which is every bit as visceral as its anti-US bias).

The row this week over the BBC’s extraordinary insult to Her Majesty the Queen and its failure immediately to sack those responsible has been accompanied by many other signs that the BBC is firmly out of control. The disgraceful pumping of Alistair Campbell’s Diaries, the ongoing assault on the Iraq War, their continuing pro-EU stance and more.

It seems that anti-semitism must be added, going arm-in-arm with its anti-Israeli stance.

Harry’s Place carries this posting (HERE):

BBC Radio 5 Live message board moderators have refused to remove a posting from the 5 Live website, which states that

“Zionism is a racist ideology where jews are given supremacy over all other races and faiths.
This is found in the Talmud.
There is a law called Baba Mezia which allows jews to lie as long as its to non-jews. many pro jewish supporters will cringe at this being exposed because they know it exists, yet they keep quiet about it, hey frip, jla and co
The Law of Baba Mezia!! Tsk tsk tsk! Its in the Talmud.”

When I brought the mailing to the attention of the moderator, “The BBC Communities Team” emailed back, stating

“we have decided that it does not contravene the House Rules and are going to leave it on site”.

Apparently, at least three others have also complained to the BBC.

The message was posted by “Iron Naz”. A brief Google search on this name suggests that he is unlikely to be a (bottom of the class) Jewish theological student.

Only “Iron Naz” himself knows how he came to hear of the supposed Law of Baba Mezia. The bastardisation of Talmud quotes, however, is normally rooted within “The Talmud Unmasked”, a classic core antisemitic text written at the end of the 19th Century by a Jew hating Russian Catholic Priest, Rev. Father Justin Praniatis, who gave evidence at the infamous Beilis blood libel trial in Kiev, 1913.

Praniatis argued that the Talmud advocated ritual murder, but was shown by Jewish and Christian scholars to be a charlatan with no knowledge of the Talmud. The all Christian jury found Beilis innocent. The influence, however, of Rev. Praniatis’ work has of course spread well beyond the confines of Imperial Russia.

Today, the core text, “The Talmud Unmasked” is distributed by neo-Nazi booksellers via the internet. It gained a brief surge of publicity in the UK in the early 1990s as part of a series of mass antisemitic mailshots by a coterie of veteran Jew haters led by the notorious Dowager Lady Jane Birdwood. She was eventually convicted in 1994 of distributing “threatening, abusive and insulting material” on account of an antisemitic compendium, “The Longest Hatred”, the contents of which included the Talmud material.

Attacks on the Talmud are also an increasingly routine component of Arab and Islamist antisemitism, anti-Zionism and Israel hatred. Until now, however, the BBC was not known to have joined this particular part of the club.

It is bad enough that it is up to readers to police what the BBC publish on their own websites, but it is far sadder that this public body should actively refuse to remove the filth, and give no explanation for their actions – or perhaps its just that “The BBC Communities Team” agree with the essential element of the posting:

“Zionism is a racist ideology where jews are given supremacy over all other races and faiths.”

We must be grateful to Corporate Presenter (HERE) for highlighting this.
