‘Ah, There’s Another One’

Hitchens and Amis on English anti-Semitism

Print Email

Do you want to watch Christopher Hitchens discuss Anthony Julius’s recent book on English anti-Semitism (based around his latest essay) with contributing editor Jeffrey Goldberg?

How about, do you want to see Martin Amis talk about Philip Roth and how his father, the great (though not as great) novelist Kingsley, was a minor Jew-hater? English philo-Semites are great.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at letters@tabletmag.com. Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

this is purely Martin Amis’s good influence on Hitchens. But Hitchens has also come up with some very anti-semitic remarks, he hopes jews are never safe, and if I recall, he won’t celebrate israel’s birthday.. think it’s all an illegitimate jewish enterprise. He’s also written an article “down with chanukah”, obviously he thinks chanukah is a problem, jews standing around a menorah singing. Hitchens thinks the greeks (that persecuted jews) were the good guys, he identifies with them.
