Over at Inane Banter, Lex Gibson asserts that the view held among many bloggers, that the European media are anti-semetic, is wrong. His view is that the Euros see the Israelis as the only side capable of responsible action, which is implicitly anti-Arab.
I'm not sure that I agree with his view, but it is certainly an intriguing notion. I'd love to see a reaction from the Wanker or some of the other Sharon-haters, but I'm not holding my breath on that.

The trouble with such an attitude is that the Arabs hold the initiative in the terror war against Israel, so only they can stop it. There is no pressure that can be brought to bear on Israel that will halt the war, because the Israelis did not start it and cannot halt it. If the Eunuch media think only the Israelis capable of responsible action they would realize this and cease denouncing the Israelis and retailing blatantly transparent lies put about by the Arabs. Since the Eunuch media do just the opposite, I conclude they are motivated by anti-Israel, and probably anti-Semitic, animus.
