Is Danny Cohen fit to be director of BBC TV?
Gilad Atzmon writes:
Danny Cohen, the director of BBC Television, asserted this week that rising anti-Semitism has made him question the long-term future for Jews in the UK. Speaking at a conference in Jerusalem, Cohen said: “I’ve never felt so uncomfortable being a Jew in the UK as in the last 12 months.”
The ultra Zionist Times of Israel reported that, in a conversation with Yonit Levi on Israel’s Channel 2 TV station, Cohen acknowledged that Britain might not be his “long term home”.
“And it’s [being a Jew in the UK] made me think about, you know, is it our long-term home, actually? Because you feel it. I’ve felt it in a way I’ve never felt before actually.”
One may wonder whether a person who thinks that Britain may not be his “long term home” should run the biggest and most important British media outlet.
Might it be more appropriate for such a powerful job to be left to a person who is primarily loyal to Britain and see this country as his home?
