In Defense of Gibson

This piece of anti-Semitic drivel appears in today's Daily Telegraph of London. I presume it isn't parody:

"If we peel back the layers of the Gibson fiasco, we see something much darker and more troubling, not about him - he's just a fool - but about the society which needs to produce a scapegoat in him. Dangerously worded as it was, Gibson's drunken comment was, it could reasonably be argued, a statement against the arrogance of the Israeli military: "They started all the wars in the world." Isn't it that which is making America call for his head? ... There's a problem here. Jews, and by extension Israelis, are un-insultable in ethnic terms, though everybody else is. I know it's hard to tell a people who saw six million of their number murdered to turn the other cheek, but turn the other cheek they must, unless they want to present themselves as the great unimpeachable race apart."

Clinical. Bill Maher is onto something, isn't he? More evidence of the anti-Semitism pervading European responses to the war in the Middle East here.
