BNP are racists and antisemites
By Ted Belman
Yesterday I posted an article by Melanie Phillips dealing with the BNP. A number of us myself included voiced support for them while pinching our noses.
Perhaps we were to quick.
Robin Shepperd, who I very much respect, just wrote BBC gives British fascist party a public drubbing over Holocaust denial but continues to whitewash Holocaust deniers in Mid East
As it turned out, Griffin was in any case subjected to a drubbing by members of the audience, fellow panelists and a moderator who rarely dropped the ball in exposing him to ridicule and shame. Questioned about his Holocaust denial Griffin was reduced to barely coherent mumblings. ďI canít tell you the extent I changed my mind,Ē he said in an apparent attempt to hide his real views behind fake concerns that he could face prosecution under European law because countries such as Germany make Holocaust denial a crime. Griffin emerged looking like a fool. A job well done by the BBC.
But if only the BBCís opposition to fascism and Holocaust denial were applied more widely. For when it comes to the Middle East and the wider Islamic world, it is all to often prepared to engage in a whitewash.
Shepherd is very anti-Islamist and always defends Jews.
