Today, Edinburgh Council withdrew discussion on twinning their city with Gaza – as they finally realised (thanks mainly to the great work of UK Lawyers for Israel), that there may be legal issues with twinning Edinburgh with a proscribed group of radical Islamic terrorists. This is a related post about an email that was sent to me by Peter Gregson, the activist behind the Edinburgh … Continue reading Peter Gregson and his racist, abusive email
On Tuesday – unbelievably -the Policy and Sustainability Committee of Edinburgh Council will debate and vote on a motion to twin Edinburgh with the HQ of a radical Islamic terrorist group. The 17 Councillors on this Committee (5 SNP, 5 Conservative, 3 Labour, 2 LibDem, 2 Green) will debate a petition concocted by an antisemite whose twisted thinking proved even too toxic for the proscribed … Continue reading Edinburgh Council want to hug a proscribed terrorist group
A few days ago, I received a message about a video on a history channel that mentioned ‘Palestine’ in a history of Ancient Egypt. I do love a good fairytale, so soon sat myself down to watch it. I have to say, that of all the absurdly inappropriate references to ‘Palestine’ that I have seen, this is one of the most ludicrous. Seeing ‘ancient Palestine’ … Continue reading BBC, the revision of history and the invention of Ancient Palestine
People who have been paying attention to the ethical demise of Amnesty International have known for a long time that the NGO has a problem with Jews and is helping those that seek the destruction of the Jewish state. I even wrote a 200 page report that covered the subject. But now that we have heard it straight from the horse’s mouth, there is no … Continue reading Amnesty International admits – it wants the destruction of Israel
‘Keyboard Warrior’ – How an undercover activist exposed London’s Jew-hating elites – repost from Mishpacha Magazine (journalist Gedalia Guttentag – photo Mendel Photography) Not all he seemed It was a remote place to pick for a high-level strategy meeting. In late 2016, a group of activists made their way to a building on an industrial estate in west London, climbed a staircase to the second … Continue reading How an undercover activist exposed London’s Jew-hating elites
Like most people I have been watching with horror the unfolding events in Ukraine. Unlike many I am not surprised at all. My Zionism is primarily based upon an understanding that the world is a nasty place. Since the 1990s a growing (yet entirely baseless), sense of over confidence has embedded itself in the west. The cold war Soviet threat was replaced with the Islamist … Continue reading Electronic Intifada goes full Putin
Unless you have been living under a rock, you’ll know that Amnesty International released a vile report accusing Israel of ‘Apartheid’. Every informed and level headed person on the planet also knows it is a spiteful and false claim. In a recent ranking of the world’s democracies, Israel came in at number 23, which makes it one of the freest, most liberal and vibrant democracies … Continue reading Amnesty’s problem with Israel – too many Jews
Since Amnesty wrote their Apartheid smear report, most of the questions for Amnesty coming from journalists have legitimised Amnesty’s work. This does not mean that the journalists agree with the contents of the report, but merely that the manner in which it has been reported has given Amnesty credit that they clearly do not deserve. It is worth reading how the Times of Israel’s Lazar … Continue reading Where are the real journalists? 15 questions for Amnesty
If you got to page ‘x’ in the new Amnesty ‘Apartheid report to argue about a comment in paragaph ‘y’, that contains a reference to Israel doing ‘z’ – you are already more than half way to losing the argument. This is about the clear big picture, not the distorted little ones – and engaging any accusation that comes from Amnesty is a waste of … Continue reading Beyond Crooked. Meet the Amnesty judges and jury
I will keep this short because there is not much to say. Tomorrow Amnesty International is going to drop a 211-page report on Israel. I’ve seen an embargoed copy – Israel are right to call Amnesty antisemitic. Ngo Monitor have just published a take-down of the report that exposes just how bad it actually is. (EoZ also published pieces exposing some of the lies inside … Continue reading Amnesty – Apartheid? What a pile of…..
Three weeks after an MP was bigging up increasing trade with the serial human rights abuser Pakistan, she was in Parliament calling for trade boycotts against the UK’s democratic ally Israel. Did she think nobody would notice? This outrageous hypocrisy exposes Islamist driven political bias at the heart of Westminster. Is this really what her constituents voted her into office to do? Anum Qaisar Anum … Continue reading The outrageous hypocrisy of Anum Qaisar MP
There are two parts to this essay: I: Wikipedia Butchers History (see below) II: Wikipedia Promotes Terror (to come later) Evolution of a Wikipedia page For most people, the online encyclopedia Wikipedia is ‘just there’, as a handy tool doling out free information with every click. Many also believe the pervasive myth that ‘anyone can edit it’ – thus wrongly thinking the online encyclopedia is … Continue reading Wikipedia butchers history and promotes terrorism – part 1
What really happened to the million Jews who lived in Arab lands? Unfortunately, so many people spread lies about what happened to those Jews – chiefly as a way of propping up a false Palestinian narrative – that most people have no idea of the truth or the scale of the disaster. They see the lies spreading online, but simply do not have the material … Continue reading What really happened to the million Jews in Arab lands?
The Irish Times has just produced yet another rancid article attacking Jews. This in the same week that Ireland’s ‘bestselling’ political magazine ‘the Phoenix’ was busy spending its time smearing those Jews that fight antisemitism. When we look for a central pillar of Ireland’s widespread antisemitism, we really have to look no further than the Irish media. When it comes to Israel, the people of … Continue reading Irish media is helping to spread antisemitism
This article was originally posted on my blog at the Times of Israel on 6 Dec 2021. Over the last few days we have been witness to two key events involving attacks on Jews that were captured with clear video footage. The first was an attack on a busload of Jewish children in the heart of London’s shopping district, a group that was out celebrating … Continue reading What type of Jews do we want to be?
