Her Hideousness, Catherine Ashton, Marks Holocaust Remembrance Day Without a Mention of the Jews

As reported by a Jerusalem Post editorial entitled "Ashton’s lapse" (, Catherine Ashton, the EU's imbecilic (I'm being kind) foreign affairs chief, who has been leading the P5+1's so-called negotiations with Khamenei over Iran's nuclear weapons development program, has marked Holocaust Remembrance Day without a mention of the Jews:

"Baroness Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s high representative for foreign affairs and vice president of the European Commission, issued a statement this week marking international Holocaust Remembrance Day.

It was commendable that the EU at all chose to note the day, but what Ashton said on its behalf on Monday was surreal. She managed to use 121 words without ever mentioning Jews. Her glaring omission is quite remarkable."

But then what would you expect from Catherine? A former chairwoman of the Health Authority in Hertfordshire, she has never held elected office and is almost entirely lacking in foreign affairs experience. Ashton, who has a BSc degree in sociology, has a life-sized Dalek (a fictional race of extraterrestrial mutants from the British science fiction television series "Doctor Who") in her sitting room.

Quite apart from what decorates her sitting room, what might be hiding in her closet? Questions have arisen over her role as national treasurer in the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (no mention of this position in her EU profile), which is suspected of having received funding from the Soviet Union. It has also been reported (

"Britain's new EU foreign policy chief Baroness Ashton enjoyed a relationship with a hard-line communist who boasted close links to some of Britain’s most militant union leaders."

Needless to say, her selection to head EU security policy was most peculiar, and the world continues to pay the price.


  1. Yeah, by the way, the former Soviet Union also never mentioned Jews while talking about Nazi atrocities.

  2. This was my thought too. It is hard to escape the similarities.
