If we posted every time MPAC, the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, wrote something ignorant and offensive about Jews or about Israel then Engage would be full of MPAC stories. But here's a taste for you:Ok, did you follow the link? Did you see where MPAC got their post from? They got it from Desert Peace, an anti-zionist blog run by a Jewish blogger based in Jerusalem. The MPAC piece makes this abundantly clear. Our intrepid watchdogs against antisemitism are so good at seeing antisemitism where it isn't and yet they didn't see this link at the end of the piece they are so keen to use to accuse this Muslim group of antisemitism:
"Zionists get very defensive when a comparrison is made to the present situation in Occupied Palestine to that of the Jews living under nazi occupation. In that light, I will not add any commentary here, except to ask one question.... CAN YOU SEE THE SIMILARITIES???"
Read the rest here on the MPAC website.
Perhaps MPAC ought to read Anthony Julius' piece on the history of the blood libel. It is a very old theme. It is the Nazi regime that murdered literally millions of Jewish children. And MPAC is accusing the "Zionists" of doing the same.

I just don't understand why this zionist site would pick on Muslims for running a post from a Jew's site. Perhaps Alf Green from Engage could pay us a visit to enlighten us.
