So Owen Jones is amazed at the extent of "Islamophobia" (13 July) and would be alarmed if people had a similar attitude to Jews.
Well, if Jews killed and maimed thousands of people by flying airliners into New York skyscrapers, bombed trains in Spain, set suicide bombers on the London Underground and buses, killed a film producer in the street in Amsterdam, threatened to kill and attacked a 76-year-old cartoonist, and plotted to massacre staff at his newspaper in Copenhagen, and if they had a rabbi with a hook who should be deported for preaching hate in our streets, Mr Jones, you might have a point.
But Jews are not doing any of that, it's Muslims doing all that, and do you think for one moment that the horrendous cost of security for the Olympics is because we expect terror attacks by Jews? Or come to that Welsh Methodists? Jehovah's Witnesses? Hindus? Or even a near-spent IRA? Of course not, the threat is from Muslim terrorists.
