A ‘groomed’ UK can’t see evil in front of its eyes

Jews from Arab countries have seen it all before

I’m Afraid to Speak

How a Jew shot to posthumous fame in Tunisia
He lived in an obscure suburb of the French town of Besançon, spending his meager busker’s earnings on food for his pet cats and dogs. Since he died in 2013, no one has combed through the shambles he left behind – thousands of cassette tapes,...

Did you see the date today? I remember where I was on 9/11 very well. For our generation it was the President Kennedy assassination moment. I was in Brighton in southern England for the Trade Union Congress annual conference in September 2001. As Director of...
