Blaming antisemitic attacks on the Gazan invasion

There has been a shocking rise in the number of antisemitic attacks on Britain's Jewish community in recent weeks. Many of the attacks have been carried out by Arabs and Asians. What's most shocking of all is that Israel's attack on Gaza is blamed by many for the attacks.

17 years ago, I remember anti-fascists condemning racist attacks against Blacks and Asians in East London. This was all during the aftermath of Stephen Lawrence's murder. There were some apologists who argued at the time that is was all due to local resentment at Blacks and Asians getting all the jobs and housing. Of course it wasn't. It was due to racist thugs attacking innocent people. And it's no different here.

The liberal left have yet to wake up to reality, continuing to believe that you can only be racist if you're white.
