Picking a scab

On the Guardian's new blog-lite, Comment is free, there's a rather unusual post, by Linda Grant, in which she fails altogether to froth at the mouth, rant about the evil Jews or even attemptto blame them for the problems of the Middle East. Instead she remarks in a slightyl detached way about how the truisms of European thought on Israel seem ridiculously simplistic and unhelpful when you're actually there. It is, above all, the veiled anti-semitism that she highlights which I was referring to in my last post.

So, a new approach from the Guardian or merely a break in prgramming? The second comment to the post starts "I visited South Africa during its apartheid phase..." Normal service resumed then.
