More on double standards, the Jews, Mel Gibson

In the middle of all this “much ado about nothing” regarding Mel Gibson, a headline hits the news which, in my view, sheds a lot of light on how different religious groups are treated by the media, the politicians, the “opinion-makers” (a word that, in itself, evokes Orwellian memories of thought police).

In the UK, The Sunday Times of August 06, 2006 publishes an interview with Helen Green, a former Deutsche Bank employee in London who was shockingly awarded more than £800,000 by the High Court for the alleged bullying she suffered in her workplace.

The details of the case are irrelevant here, except for the fact that she was apparently psychologically vulnerable due to her difficult childhood and upbringing, a “fragile person” as her interviewer Jasper Gerard put it.

He goes on to say:
‘“The story of Green’s childhood and the abuse she suffered is truly tragic. She was a product of a youthful affair between her Jewish orthodox mother and an Italian; the Jewish community of Leeds was scandalised. The family forced Green’s mother to send her to a Manchester children’s home.

‘“Her family would not let me in the house,” says Green, tears welling in her brown eyes. So, aged two, she was given up for adoption to another Jewish family in Lincolnshire. Her adoptive father Edward Green (now dead) was a wealthy accountant who drove a Rolls-Royce. In 1991, Green reported that he had sexually abused her and took him to court; he was later cautioned and put on the sex offenders’ register. The anguish drove her to a breakdown and she has been estranged from the rest of her adoptive family ever since.”’

Now, look at who is a bigot here.

It’s widespread among Jews and Jewish families living in the West to oppose marriage with non-Jews, and only allowing marriage within their own group.

If you have a friend of Jewish ancestry you’ll know that. And every so often little bits of information like the one concerning the above case of Helen Green emerge.

But does anybody cry out: “It’s racist!” “It’s anti-Christian!” or the like?

But, think about it, it obviously is. It may have a long tradition and a remote historic origin, but that does not justify it.

Look at the matter-of-fact way in which the Sunday Times journalist simply reported it, without even so much as raising an eyebrow.

Do you think that if this kind of discrimination had been displayed by any Christian or, even worse, a Catholic family, the reaction would have been so accepting and tolerant? Of course not.
