Hate in the shadow of a terrorist attack
Whenever they occur terrorist attacks are met with global sympathy – except of course when they happen to Jews in Israel. But even for those of us who have become used to the blatant double standards, loaded headlines, and insincere commentary that regularly accompany these tragic events, the raw hate that we saw following the tragic events of last Friday still took us by surprise. … Continue reading Hate in the shadow of a terrorist attack
A short ‘what on earth is going on in Israel’ – the Judiciary post
This is a post that I felt compelled to write but that will make me no friends – on any side. I had originally intended to maintain complete radio silence over the current situation – as is generally my strategy on internal Israeli affairs. Others suggested that given the noise in the UK Jewish community – I shouldn’t remain silent. So here it is – … Continue reading A short ‘what on earth is going on in Israel’ – the Judiciary post
Just where on earth was ‘Palestine’?
“It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” (source unknown, but often attributed to Mark Twain). The ‘success’ of ‘Palestine’-related myths provides excellent examples of how we are surrounded by Orwellian inversions of truth. From the Guardian and the BBC to the Washington Post and NYT, the mainstream media are all likely … Continue reading Just where on earth was ‘Palestine’?
Jerusalem, dead Jews – and a history of media excuses
On Friday 27 January 2023, at about 8:15pm, a Palestinian terrorist murdered seven people outside a synagogue in Neve Yaakov, a neighbourhood of Jerusalem. This was a cold-blooded, inexcusable, and targeted terrorist attack against innocent civilians. Yet whenever Jews are murdered just for being Jews – the media has a long history of twisting events or making excuses for the terrorists that set out to … Continue reading Jerusalem, dead Jews – and a history of media excuses
No! The Jews were not ‘living happily’ in Arab lands
According to the anti-Israel narrative, Jews and Arabs lived peacefully together – until of course the ‘Zionists’ arrived to spoil the ‘beautiful’ relationship. This is one of the most offensive rewrites of history. It may be true that the Jews had a worse time in Europe – a deflective phrase I have even heard academics use – but let’s face it, is the industrial slaughter … Continue reading No! The Jews were not ‘living happily’ in Arab lands
How the Twittersphere spreads antisemitism
We all know that Jew-hate spreads in the Twittersphere, but nobody touches on how much of it is there. Nor do people draw comparisons between the level of ‘anti’ activity, and the level of ‘pro’ that seeks to answer it. As a quintessential minority group, Jews are drowned out on social media, and because these platforms operate on algorithms that reward ‘popularity’, Jewish people are … Continue reading How the Twittersphere spreads antisemitism
Gazan scams the anti-Zionists – antisemitism makes people dumb
A Gazan has just scammed anti-Zionists out of £1000s. Pete Gregson, the Scottish man who ran the campaigns has even just admitted it. The truth here is that this is a cycle; The lies of anti-Israel propaganda creates anti-Zionists, anti-Zionism embeds antisemitism, and antisemitism makes people targets for scams. And trust me on this, the people in Gaza and the West Bank are fully aware … Continue reading Gazan scams the anti-Zionists – antisemitism makes people dumb
Challenging the false anti-Israel narrative with facts
“Not all opinions are equal. And some things happened just like they say they did. Slavery happened, the Black Death happened, the earth is round, the ice caps are melting, and Elvis is not alive” -Rachel Weisz (playing Deborah Lipstadt) from the movie ‘Denial’. Jews are facing Orwellian inversions of history. We are witnessing an increase in Holocaust denialism, that can even perversely attempt to … Continue reading Challenging the false anti-Israel narrative with facts
An open letter to Gary Lineker
To Gary Lineker I am writing this because you recently blocked me on Twitter. I am not an abusive guy, I am not an extremist, I do not spam – and I know what I am talking about. You apparently did not like that I disagreed with your post. You have the right to block whoever you want to, but effectively you just put your … Continue reading An open letter to Gary Lineker
Israel – the most extreme government in the history of the universe?
The extensive differences between the Israeli political system and those of the UK or US lead to a tsunami of political misinformation. This allows critics to twist the facts skewing their reporting in a way which suits their own political leanings. Because of this, the success of Itamar Ben Gvir (Otzmah Yehudit party), Bezalel Smotrich (Religious Zionism Party), and Avi Maoz (Noam Party) in the … Continue reading Israel – the most extreme government in the history of the universe?
Burning peaceful roots. How UK politicians side with the terrorists
Every now and again the mask of the anti-Israel movement slips to such a degree that even the naive and foolish should be able to see the real face of anti-Israel activism. The ‘rape your daughters’ convoy last year is a good example – even if shamefully the CPS has decided not to prosecute those responsible. The current attempt to silence the NGO ‘Roots’ on … Continue reading Burning peaceful roots. How UK politicians side with the terrorists
Twitter silences me (twice) (again) – siding with the antisemites
As Christians face slaughter and I mention it – I have been suspended on Twitter again. Then – to double down – I was also targeted over an investigation of a Scottish fundraising scam with terrorist links in Gaza. Two FACTUAL tweets – each has me suspended. Twitter is not just allowing Jews who speak up to be bullied off their platform – they are … Continue reading Twitter silences me (twice) (again) – siding with the antisemites
Pete Gregson’s campaigns. Just where are the Scottish police?
A Holocaust denying antisemite created a partnership with a Gazan scammer who has family links to proscribed Islamic terrorist groups. They are still taking £1000s from people in Scotland for increasingly dubious and unbelievable campaigns. Why is it left to an independent Jewish journalist to investigate them? Just where are the Scottish police? The unfortunate Mohammed Almadhoun Mohammed Almadhoun is either scamming the people of … Continue reading Pete Gregson’s campaigns. Just where are the Scottish police?
UK Jewish group Na’amod helped a Holocaust denier – and then lied about it
In this bombshell exclusive, I expose Na’amod, the self-proclaimed ‘anti-occupation’ UK Jewish group for ‘freedom, equality and justice for all‘ as dishonest, dangerous extremists. Not only did Na’amod provide resources and help extremist Holocaust denier Pete Gregson with a ‘bogus antisemitism’ tour featuring Neturei Karta and the Muslim Brotherhood-linked Hamas terrorism defender, Azzam Tamimi. When caught in the act, Na’amod issued a blanket denial, smearing … Continue reading UK Jewish group Na’amod helped a Holocaust denier – and then lied about it
I told the truth about ‘Palestine’ – and this happened
Two things are key to my outlook – truth and historicity. Being driven by a need for honesty however, does mean that I am not so big on being ‘politically correct’. I believe that following such an ‘unchained’ strategy exposes the weaknesses of the anti-Israel propaganda machine far better than other, more ‘diplomatic’ methods. So on Sunday I put out a simple, factual tweet. I … Continue reading I told the truth about ‘Palestine’ – and this happened
