Last Tuesday I wrote of Australian Murdoch propagandist Andrew Bolt’s complaint about the Hawaiian senate creating an ‘Islam Day’ while only some 0.5% of Hawaiians are Muslims. I wondered if Bolt would be as quick to condemn such a move if had the Hawaiian senate created an ‘Israel Day’.
We’re about to find out. Yesterday, President Obama went one better by declaring that the month of May will be Jewish American Heritage Month for the whole of the US! Not just Hawaii. And the Jewish population in the US is only 1.78%.
I have no problems with Jewish Americans being recognised in this way so one has to wonder why Andrew Bolt has a problem with Islam getting the same recognition.
One doesn’t need to have it spelt out.
The question now is; will we go to Andrew Bolts’ column in Melbourne’s ‘Herald Sun’ newspaper and find a complaint from him about Jewish Americans being recognised.
Don’t hold your breath!
