A Sad Story Without End - It's Hard to Stay an Anglophile

I have been brooding all day about the poll in Britain’s Telegraph reporting that the English find Israel the worst country in the world. Of course, they will say that this is not anti-Semitism, but merely dislike for Israel’s policies, but that is ludicrous given the recent spread of anti-Semitism seemingly everywhere but the United States. So it’s hard not to be depressed by this Melanie Phillips entry, detailing anti-Semitism in high places in Blighty. But then it’s an old, old story, isn’t it? (HT: Peter UK)

UPDATE: Power Line is linking more of the superb Ms. Phillips today.
