EU buries anti-Semitism report

From yahoo / the NY Post

According to the Financial Times, the European Monitoring Centre on Racism and Xenophobia (EUMC) decided in February - without telling anyone - not to publish its own 112-page report on anti-Semitism, after deciding that pointing a finger at radical Islamists and pro-Palestinian perpetrators was "inflammatory."

One board member complained because anti-Islam incidents weren't included (but the E.U. has released three reports on anti-Arab attacks since 9/11).

Others complained because the study - the E.U.'s first ever on anti-Jewish activity - also linked the growth of anti-Semitism in Europe to anti-globalization and other left-wing groups.

Apparently, anti-Semitism is only considered a problem by the E.U. worth addressing when it's committed by right-wingers and neo-Nazis.

In fact, the E.U. commissioned the report because of fears that anti-Semitism was on the rise. But it doesn't seem to have anticipated having those fears confirmed - with those responsible firmly, albeit inconveniently, identified.

Really? The same Europe that supplied arms to Saddam Hussein? The same Europe that gave aid and comfort to terrorist leader Yassir Arafat? Who''d''ve thunk it!

Ratboy I can''t tell if you are still playing the sarcastic boy game or are becoming more conservative. You''ve got me fooled.

Last week on a local radio station KSJO that the guys in manufacturing in our company listen to, was having a ""make me laugh"" non PC joke contest to win some tickets.

There were a bunch of Michael Jackson jokes of course. Then there was some ditz that called up with this old classic:

Q: Why do Jews have big noses?

A: Because air is free!

Now, I thought that was the stupidest thign I''d ever heard from someone trying to win a joke contest. She sounded so pleased with herself. That joke is like 20 years old. If you are trying to be a funny bigot, at least be creative and come up with something relevant to the last 5 years or so.

It was a stupid unfunny joke 20 years ago and it sure isnt going to get funnier over time. If you are going to tel a Jew joke at least make it clever and funny.

How did the polish guy break his legs raking the leaves?

He fell out of the tree.

Remember when polish jokes used to be cool? Than that Lech Walesa had to be a hero and ruin everything.

How did the cops know Michael Jackson committed the crime? Because a bunch of kids fingered him!

What do Michael Jackson and Willy Wonka have in common?

They both blow bubbles.
