Which Side Would Today's BBC Have Rooted For In World War II?

Roger L. Simon wrote on Thursday that the world needs a new Churchill. They won't find him in the halls of the BBC, that's for sure.
Or in the White House, but that's been pretty obvious since January of 2009. The previous year, Obama was more than happy to parachute in to Berlin and practice his "citizens of the world, I come in peace for all mankind" routine in 2008 in which he talked in vague postmodern platitudes about how the Berlin Wall just happened to magically fall down. But faced with an actual world crisis this week, not only can't the president go to Paris in a show of unity, even Eric Holder of all people, who promised to attend (yeah, I don't understand why, either) can't be bothered to show up.
As Glenn Reynolds writes today, "Honestly, everyone who made fun of [Clint Eastwood's] empty-chair routine should apologize. It perfectly foreshadowed Obama’s second term."

But I digress. To return the topic of this post, follow this link from Yair Rosenberg of Tablet magazine:
If you're just noticing that the BBC occasionally traffics in anti-Jewish notions, I recommend this @wrmead essay: http://t.co/cNSMfQnmju

As Mark Steyn wrote a decade ago, "The old joke -- that the Germans will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz -- gets truer every week" -- and the radius of its impact spreads outward ever wider. But then, as Steyn concluded, "It may be some consolation to an ever-lonelier Israel that, in one of history's bleaker jests, in the coming Europe the Europeans will be the new Jews."
