Muslim Anti-semitismOctober 23, 2003 16:56 by ManagingTeam
Jeff Jacoby, today in the Boston Globe, regarding Malaysia’s Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad’s antisemitic diatribe:
The Muslim world suffers from many problems, but none is more crippling than its culture of intolerance. Rampant anti-semitism anywhere is always a sign of grave moral sickness. Until more Muslims are prepared to confront and conquer that sickness in their midst, the Muslim world will remain the benighted backwater that so many Muslims deplore.
The Arab press is a major part of this problem, as detailed in many HonestReporting communiques.
The Western press, in turn, generally doesn’t consider the phenomenon newsworthy. Encourage your local editor to recognize this intolerance — which blocks any progress toward peace with Israel and the West — in an upcoming editorial.
