The Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK (MPACUK) reposted a list of prominent Jews in the media made by Jeffrey Blankfort and posted on the al-Jazeera.info website, including with it the following commentary:
|If Jewish groups can help their community to do so well in the Media, why can the muppets who run our Mosques not establish a simple program that a monkey could organise to teach Muslims simply how to get jobs in the Media ...man are our Mosque Leaders losers or what, or is asking why Mosque Leaders dont have a brain a stupid question ?|
This brought to mind part of an earlier Gates of Vienna post:
|Is the rich and fertile culture of "The West" even conceivable without the Jews? In every enterprise open to them Jews excel. They are over-represented in the highest reaches of the arts and sciences, and in the academy; despite historical obstacles and discrimination, they are to be found among the greatest mathematicians and physicists, composers and musicians, historians and novelists. Examine the masthead of a magazine, the credits for a movie, or the members of a university faculty, to see the contributions of the Jews.|
In any case, MPACUK seems to have its arm up to the elbow in the tail region of the elephant, while here we are poking with our red-tipped cane at the tusks and trunk.
