Julie Burchill Spells Out Antisemitism Very Slooooowly

"Jewish culture aside, she finds the religion “endlessly fascinating” and adores Israel, which she calls “miraculous.”

"Her friends, she says, do not find her philosemitism strange because most of them are philosemites as well. But why are they so unusual, especially in modern Britain?"

I think it’s down to pure envy,” she says. 

Jews start with so many disadvantages in every country, and do so well. That highlights a lot of indigenous peoples’ failure, and people often don’t like feeling that way.”
