Excusing anti-semitism

Anyone want to do a Google search, to see whether far-left filmmaker Ken Loach ever said that hate crimes against Muslims are “not surprising and understandable” because of 9/11?

According to The Parliament:

British film director Ken Loach says that a rise in anti-Semitism in Europe since the Gaza crisis is “not surprising and understandable”.
He was responding to a report earlier this week by the Vienna-based agency for fundamental rights (FRA) which said cases of anti-Semitism had risen across Europe since last December.
The agency, which collected information from 19 EU members, said rises in anti-Semitism, ranging from vandalism to physical attacks, were a serious concern…
But, speaking in Brussels on Wednesday, Loach said, “If there has been a rise I am not surprised. In fact, it is perfectly understandable because Israel feeds feelings of anti-Semitism.”
Loach, famous for films like Kes, Cathy Come Home and Riff Raff, stressed that “no-one can condone violence”.
But the director, who has spoken out against Israel in the past, branded the report as a “red herring” designed to “distract attention” from Israel’s recent military actions. [emphasis added]

Let’s be clear. What we have here is a Marxist film director, a professed internationalist, saying that if a Jew is beaten to a pulp, Israel is to blame – and that those who dare complain about it are engaged in the well-worn Zionist tactic of changing the subject.

Thank you, Comrade, for providing yet another example of why European Jews should at least think about leaving and/or arming themselves. (Here’s another.)

    “Loach, famous for films like Kes, Cathy Come Home and Riff Raff.” Is he? I wonder how many people have actually heard of these films, let alone actually seen them. I know I haven’t.

    Loach is from the angry Left of the 60’s, ‘Cathy come home’ was a docudrama he put on the BBC back in the ’60’s like all media Leftists he has an overblown ego, and thinks that normal people actually listen to what he says,
