Video pales next to anti-semitism

J MARSTRAND may be correct that "the video at the centre of the violent demonstrations across the Muslim world ... pales into insignificance against the abuses that the US and its allies have perpetrated in the Middle East".

But it also pales into insignificance when compared with the sort of programmes regularly broadcast on Middle Eastern TV abusing Judaism in terms reminiscent of Julius Streicher's Der Sturmer in 1930s Germany.
