The Council Has Spoken!! This Week’s Watcher’s Council Results


The Council has spoken, the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week’s Watcher’s Council match up.

 Before we get started, let me remind you that there’s now a seat available on the Watcher’s Council up for grabs.

We’re currently looking at candidates, so if you’re interested, think you qualify or want to find out more about what’s involved in being part of the longest established blogging group of its kind, simply leave a comment with site URL and your e-mail address (which won’t be published) on any article over at Joshuapundit.

These don’t come up all that often and when they do they usually fill up quickly, so if you’re interested, don’t snooze!

Even taking into consideration the normal high level of quality in both the Council and Non-Council entries, this was a tough call with some exceptional pieces to choose from, and the close vote tallies reflect it.

Some things never change, and one of them is that there are a lot of Europeans who will never forgive the Jews for Auschwitz..especially with the convenient cover of ‘ anti-Zionism’ to hide behind.


This week’s winner by a nose, Joshuapundit’s  How The UK Sunday Times Observed Holocaust Memorial Day… : is my look at how the UK’s London Times chose to observe this year’s Holocaust Memorial Day – with a cartoon that would have been right at home in Hitler’s Der Stürmer.That something like this cartoon could appear in a mainstream UK paper on this particular day says volumes about the mindset of a great deal of British society, and about the nature of modern anti-Semitism itself. Here’s a slice, and a little history of that a lot of Britons would probably prefer not to look at too closely:


Today, January 27th is Holocaust Memorial Day, when people throughout the world commemorate the six million  Jews who died at the hands of Hitler and his many willing assistants in all nations.

The  Times cartoon above,  showing a gargoyle like, hook nosed Benyamin Netanyahu ‘cementing in a wall to peace’ with the blood of those Arabs who identify as Palestinians is pretty much standard fare nowadays in the kind of country the UK has become. Or more accurately, as Caroline Glick recently pointed out, the kind of country Britain has been for some time but now feels increasingly comfortable with revealing openly.
