Daily Briefing: Queen Elizabeth and King Charles Cultivated Close Ties to UK Jewry


Queen Elizabeth’s Unwavering Service Through a Tumultuous Time in World History:  Conrad Black, National Post, Sept. 10, 2022 The email message from a learned reader of my American columns, a cyber friend in Alabama, read, in its entirety: “She was the most admired and respected person in the entire world.” Thus did I learn the very sad news, not altogether unexpected but hard to assimilate, of the death of the Queen. I remembered the day 70 years and seven months ago, when my late brother was the first member of our family downstairs early one morning and came back upstairs having looked at the headline in the Globe and Mail while eating his breakfast, and said to my parents and me the famous sentence (in our family): “There was a bug in my cereal and the King is dead.”

Queen Elizabeth and the End of History:  Brendan O’Neill, Spiked, Sept. 11, 2022 I had the strangest thought on Thursday evening when it was announced that Queen Elizabeth II had died. I thought that I might soon miss being a subject of that queen. I never liked being a subject. It’s citizenship or nothing for me. My republican soul bristles at speeches by long-gone monarchs in which they congratulated or condemned their subjects depending on how well-behaved they’d been. In 1896 Queen Victoria thanked ‘my subjects throughout the Empire at home and abroad’ for the sympathy they had shown her following the death in war of her son-in-law Prince Henry of Battenberg.

The Queen Is Dead. Long Live the King?:  Esther Solomon, Haaretz, Sept. 9, 2022 — Sometimes not speaking ill of the dead, a Jewish custom as much as it skirts a near-universal taboo, is a hard task. How, and why, would you want to keep shtum about those infamous for their cruelty, bigotry or corruption? Fortunately, in the case of the queen, it’s remarkably easy – but that’s not quite as complimentary as it seems.


Keeping Up with the Times–in Death Daniel Greenfield, The Jewish Press, Sept. 12, 2022 The New York Times decided to cover Queen Elizabeth’s death by running an anti-obituary, claiming that “the queen helped obscure a bloody history of decolonization whose proportions and legacies have yet to be adequately acknowledged,” Here, by contrast, is what is allegedly the New York Times obituary for Stalin.
