Swedish anti-Semites at work...

Discussion in 'The Intelligence Cell' started by KGB_resident, Apr 27, 2006.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:


  2. Criticising the activities of the Iraeli Government isn't 'anti-semitic'. Only ultra-religious nutters (of all sorts) and other retards identify Israel with 'the jews' as such.
  3. Is this a topic for the NAAFI bar? I doubt it.
  4. Why not? Any event (except deaths of course) may be regarded from the humorous angle. There is a lot of causes to laugh there. How do you like this?

  5. As a jew, I think that the term 'anti-semite' is thrown around far too recklessly by certain members of my faith. A limited amount of the criticism directed against the State of Israel (chiefly, it must be said, originating in the Arab world) can be termed as anti-jewish but the vast majority of criticism of the State of Israel is comment against the Government of the day's policies. The religious and ethnic make-up of that Government is of no importance. Shouting 'anti-semite' at every opportunity actually only serves to lessen the power of the term and may even help to ingrain existing anti-semitic attitudes.
  6. You are absolutely right. Couldn't agree more.
  7. The Swedes are long-time critics of the State of Israel, to such an extent that they permitted the PLO to establish its north European headquarters in the country. I would not however accuse the Swedes of anti-Semitism, as they are the most throughly non-religious people I have ever encountered, and are so detached from reality they it is unlikely that they actually know what anti-Semitism means.
  8. I can only imagine Sergey is being tongue in cheek calling this anti-Semitic. Is it a subtle side-swipe at the Israeli/US administration (I use the singular quite purposely) who, for example scream 'anti-Semitism' if the glossy paint finish on an armoured personnel carrier is dulled by Palestinian/peace activists' blood?

    But the Swedes are long-time critics not of the State of Israel but rather Israeli policy. As I'm aware they don't doubt in Isreal's legetimate right to exist. Though Israeli politicians argree with you.,7340,L-3244719,00.html


    The title of this thread is ironic. I thought that it is obvious because I initially placed this thread on NAAFI bar. But it appears that I am persona non grata on NAAFI bar. Even my funny story about drunken Russian paratrooper was replaced from that section to the Int.Cell.
