    I am waiting on the Guardian to review the anti-Jewish vitrol in a certain holy book written in Arabia in the 8 th century, based on a plagiarism that occurred of the Old Testament in the 6th century. The vitrol was necessary because the owners of the original may have needed to be wiped out, so that the evidence could be eliminated with them.

    Oh f*uck off. The Guardian article says

    This terrific modern visionary is demonic in every sense. We should never stop looking into his distorting mirror where the extremes of imagination and hate can both be seen and the wound of modern history will never heal.

    Emil Nolde was a nazi sympathiser but ironically found his work banned by the NSDAP because it was considered modern 'degenerate' art. The Nazis favoured classicism.

    The article says that some members of the public complained about the painting being anti-semitic but they are not named.

    I don't think NGI should take down the painting, as it's bowing to censorship and would be against freedom of expression. Someone may start complaining that any art depicting the crucifixion is anti-semitic.

    There are times in life when we have to be comfortable with anti-semitic sentiments. This week for example we saw the king of the largest semite country in the world visit Britain and meet the Queen of England, Head of the Church of England, a woman called by baptism, as we all are, to bear witness to Christ in our daily life, in whatever way we can, as each opportunity arises. The semite king will be aware as a muslim, that Christ is considered a prophet by muslims, but not divine, and yet the actions of the Saudi state, its authorities and religious police, show that in Saudi Arabia at any rate Christ is seen as the devil incarnate, how else can you interpret the ban on any Christian material being brought into the country, take in some rosary beads and a gospel or a crucifix and they will have you detained or even gaoled, hardly the actions of people who revere Christ as a prophet, so when I see a picture of two hook nosed semites laughing at the crucifixion, I do not demand it be taken down for expressing anti Christian sentiment, I urge it to be left up so people can acknowledge the extent of anti-Christian hate still in the world today, and remember that there really are out there semites who hate Christ and all he stands for

    What would we say to an exhibition of anti-Irish images?

    Yes Punch magazine had anti-Irish caricatures. Should an exhibition of that material be banned? Absolutely not.

    We would probably allow it although some would complain that it would cause anti English feelings.

    Has the Nolde exhibition been banned?

    You were caught out lying about what the Guardian actually said in their review, so I cant trust your information.

    They were masterpieces in the area of 'irony'.
