UK designers engage in blatant Jew-hatred

This is unfuckingbelievable!

A UK-based group of design professionals has petitioned the organizers of an architecture exhibition in Venice to withdraw an Israeli entry, expressing "dismay and concern" that the prestigious event has agreed to host Israelis.

In the petition, Architects and Planners for Justice in Palestine (APJP) called on the organizers of Biennale Architettura, which begins Sunday and runs until November 19, to withdraw Israel's entry. They said, "We request that the Biennale committee consider withdrawing the Israeli entry as being provocative and counterproductive to the aims of the Biennale, and particularly distasteful in the context of the aftermath of an ugly and unnecessary war in neighboring Lebanon, and a continuing one-sided war in Gaza."

Anyone want to keep up the mendacious pretense that being anti-Zionist is not being anti-semitic?

Its amazing that things have become so overt and so few are alarmed.

Contemptible. I wrote about this sorry-assed group a while back.

I have come to the conclusion that "anti-Zionism" is nothing more than a way to put a respectable face on Jew-hating. As far as I'm concerned it fails miserably to accomplish that.

This is horrible, more and more these kind of people do their hate right in our faces, in the face of all the world to see. It makes me sick that these kind of people exist.

It seems to me that it's gotten so blatant. These fascists don't want to be called what they are. Islamofascists don't want to be called islamofascists. Anti-Semites don't want to be called anti-Semites.

They think we are all idiots.
