UPDATE: I would like to note that some are saying Ms. Gould’s narrative is exaggerated. I have no first hand knowledge, obviously. If she happens to read this, I would invite her to respond here or to direct us elsewhere for substantiation. Although antisemitism has been a devasting blot on the European character since the medieval days of the “Blood Libel,” since these accusations are contemporary, and occurred in my beloved London, I found them particularly blood-curdling (no pun intended). And given their incendiary nature, I think the events need some more foot-noting… for good or ill.
BUT… to put it all in a larger context, Barcepundit reports the new Spanish government invited a veteran of Hitler’s Wehrmacht to Spain’s national day celebration. As you will recall, that’s the same event from which US troops were disinvited.
