Christophobia in Israel by Jay Knott (05/01/11)       ⇌ (Israel and the US)       

I'm not offended by an Israeli girl in a bikini mocking the crucifixion. But then, I'm not a Christian. I don't want to be accused of opportunistically using something which doesn't offend me to stir up opposition to Zionism.

My point is simply this. You hear a lot about Catholic and all sorts of other kinds of anti-Semitism in the media. You see outrage at a nutty pastor who burns the Koran. But you never hear a sqeak about Jewish religious sectarianism.

I don't like Fox News. I'm just saying that if it were what it claimed to be, an American conservative news channel, it would be at least as obsessed with the above outrage against Christ as it is about Mel Gibson's rants against the Jews or Koran-burning Christians. But it isn't.
