This Is Why People Talk About 'Dual Loyalty'

Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. Equally, even though anti-Semitism has now become so mainstream, it can only be a matter of time until at least one uni makes the Protocols of Zion a set text, that doesn't mean there isn't a malignant strain in Jewish culture. Consider the latest from David Aaronovitch.

Aaronovitch thinks immigration laws are sooooooo last century. We need to embrace the cosmopolitan 'if this is Tuesday, I must be Brazilian' lifestyle. Britain's just a place, and British culture is just the aggregate of whoever's passing through at the time.

Funnily enough, even while dismissing the idea of a common culture, Aaronovitch still manages to dismiss the British as collectively lazy. But that's a mere trifle compared to the honking great contradiction in his article. Isn't there some place in the Middle East which has its own immigration issues ? How come Davey-Boy doesn't want Israel to throw open its borders ? Aren't the Palis just people too ? Isn't one culture just as bogus as the other ? And how seriously should we take a guy who claims to be British, yet is so unconcerned about the effects of open borders on Britain, even while warning against the self-same policies somewhere else ?
