Melanie Phillips has a good article entitled Beneath the din, decency is still listening – it is a reminder that there are many good people around who “get it”.
Phillips states “I happen to believe it is the defining issue of our time; that where people stand on Israel defines which side they are on in the titanic battle under way to defend civilisation. I also believe that this is a battle that will be lost unless the dominance of lies and propaganda in the public debate is challenged, and unless people are made aware at the very least that there is a very different story from the One Received Truth imposed upon the west by the Cultural Inquisition, aka the mainstream media and intelligentsia.”
Another move in favour of free speech was the recent “not guilty” finding in favour of Geert Wilders
Here is a speech by Melanie Phillips.
