It can make you anti-Semitic. Especially if you work for the Foreign Office:
A high-ranking diplomat at the Foreign Office has been arrested after allegations that he launched a foul-mouthed anti-Semitic tirade. Middle East expert Rowan Laxton, 47, was watching TV reports of the Israeli attack on Gaza as he used an exercise bike in a gym.
Stunned staff and gym members allegedly heard him shout: 'Fucking Israelis, fucking Jews'. It is alleged he also said Israeli soldiers should be 'wiped off the face of the earth.'
His rant reportedly continued even after he was approached by other gym users.
