‘He’s an Arab’ – Denis MacEoin explains why you can’t trust Gilbert Achcar

Denis MacEoin, who was responsible for the discredited Policy Exchange report The Hijacking of British Islam among other axe-grinding anti-Muslim “studies”, has posted a “customer review” of Gilbert Achcar’s book The Arabs and the Holocaust on the Amazon website.

Not that MacEoin has actually bought the book, still less read it. But he has no hesitation in warning potential purchasers that Achcar is an unreliable historian, beginning with the charge that “He’s an Arab….” As one of the comments on MacEoin’s “review” points out: “One can imagine the uproar from you and your ilk if the assertion you make was followed by ‘He’s a Jew’.”
