I am used to Zionists debasing the accusation of anti semitism by using
it to describe anyone, including myself, who advocates the destruction
of the state of Israel.

For socialists like Louis to add to this debasement of a serious accusation
strikes me as disgusting, irresponsible, and self degrading.

Hugh is not an anti semite. It is not anti semitic to describe Trotsky as
"born a Jew" , alongside a description of Stalin as Georgian and Lenin as
Russian, it is simply an accurrate description of the political realities
of Russian society at the time.

Louis, if you don't apologise immediately and publicly, to Hugh and to me,
I shall never communicate with you again. Maybe this is what you want anyway.

Adam.
