One Man's Ceiling is Another Man's Floor?

Mohammed T. Mehdi
It appears that the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee will be honoring Helen Thomas, she of the send-the-Jews-back-to-Germany and Poland, with its Mehdi Courage in Journalism Award. What makes this a double whammy of a disgrace is that Mohammad Mehdi of whom the award is named was himself quite the bigot. Quoted in his 1998 NY Times obituary, Mehdi famously said,  '''We make a 100 percent difference between the person who is a Jew and that who is a Zionist. Zionists are neurotic, sick people. Most Jews are sick people and would benefit from Dr. Freud's couch.'' Dr. Mehdi has also been quoted as asserting that ''New York is a Zion town'' and ''the real father of Israel is Hitler."' Hymie Town, anyone?

I don't believe that ADL, AJC, AIPAC, ZOA, Bnai Brith, etal, have ever named an award for someone who uttered anything as repugnant as Medhi, nor bestowed that award upon the likes of Thomas. But, I may be wrong. Thoughts anyone?

  2. I don't agree, life in the diaspora has its problems but Jews should be able to live everywhere. We need to find a way to fight the propaganda that tells us we don't have that right, particularly in Israel.

  3. In principle yes, indeed. But I assure you that Britain today is rapidly sliding into a post-Weimar scenario. I know it's difficult to believe, but it's a fact.
