IN THE NAME OF COMPLETE TRANSPARENCY
I don't know if this is someone pretending to be the Jewish Defense League, or the real thing. There's lots of agents provacateur these days working the blogsphere. An attempt to provoke me into anger? This is laughable! Especially since my grandmother's last name was Golden, making me 1/4 Jewish. The rest of me is Scottish, Welsh and English.
I've always deleted anti-semitic comments that come into my blog. And I've roundly attacked Nazi hatred and bigotry.
I've never posted hatred towards Jews nor do I have any hatred towards them. It'd be like hating my own grandmother.
The threat I received is below.
PS: For obvious reasons I have turned comments off on this post.

We have noted the anti-semitic comments that you habitually post on various newspaper websites. It is your prerogative to hate Jews, but that does not mean that you have the right to demonise us on public forums. In the middle of the last century, Jews had no means of defending themselves against the hatred that they were subjected to, but that was a long time ago. In the 21st Century, we have the right and the means to defend ourselves when we are attacked, and we always do so with extreme resourcefulness and prejudice.
There are three things that you must remember: The saying that we live by is Never Again; our hatred of anti-semites like you is even stronger than your hatred of us; we didn't choose you as an enemy, you chose us.
