On Peres, Anti-Semitism and Britain

The papers are abuzz this morning with reports that Peres called Brits 'anti-Semites.' Various media outlets here have whipped themselves into a frenzy without showing what Peres actually said.

Of course the British press needs no excuse to whip up anti-Israel sentiment and it has seized this opportunity to distort Peres' statements in the usual fashion.

There are two excellent reports on this brouhaha over at Melanie Phillips blog and on Daniel Greenfield's website Sultan Knish.

Read them both.
