Ward & Pilger

While Liberal Democrat MPs - oops, sorry, while A Liberal Democrat MP - scolds the Jews  for not having learned the lessons of the Holocaust (and such good teachers, those Nazis), the fatuous John Pilger compares Kathryn Bigelow, the director of Zero Dark Thirty, to Leni Riefenstahl.  Straightforward antisemitism by the former; I'd put the latter down to approaching senility were it not for the fact that Pilger has always preferred insult and hatefulness.  If Bigelow's film "promotes torture and murder", then Dr Strangelove promotes nuclear war.  He can't have actually seen it. personally, I thought it was an exceptionally good film, but then I'm simply one of the rabble Pilger so despises.

Pilger's remarks come in an article condemning the French/British/Americam - ANY - involvement in Mali.  You can read his febrile ramblings here

In the meantime, this is the sort of diabolical American-favoured thing the French have set out to save (Ali Farka Toure's son remained in Islamist-controlled town Niafunke, afraid that his father's archive would be burned.  The French have since secured the town) :
