High European official makes openly anti-Jewish remark
Karel De Gucht is the former Belgian foreign minister and now the European trade commissioner. The Wall Street Journal reports:
On Thursday, with the Middle East peace process in the news, Mr. De Gucht picked yet another fight. Jews, he told Belgian radio, have a “belief” that they are “always right.” He described his frustration at debating the Middle East because “it is not easy even with a moderate Jew to have a conversation.”Afterwards, he made some meaningless excuse that he hadn’t intended to “stigmatize” anyone.
Kilroy M. writes:
I wonder how easy it will be for de Gucht to have a “conversation” with a Muslim when Europe becomes majority Mohammedan. I guess this enlightened liberal intellectual, like his co-ideologues, has made his choice. I sincerely hope that he is able to enjoy the fruits of it.
