Gregson Edinburgh Council

An open letter to Edinburgh Council – are you in bed with terrorists?

An open letter to Edinburgh Council (an email containing this information was sent to all sitting Councillors). Dear Councillor, You will soon be debating the twinning of Edinburgh with Gaza again.  When you were due to debate the motion earlier this year I received an abusive, antisemitic email from the proposer of the motion, Pete Gregson. Since then, I have discovered far more about the … Continue reading An open letter to Edinburgh Council – are you in bed with terrorists?

Holocaust - Anne Frank Trust UK

Anne Frank wouldn’t Trust this

Make no mistake about it, the Anne Frank Trust UK is an insult to the eponymous Holocaust victim whose name it bears. Background The Anne Frank Trust UK has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. A week ago they ran an educational workshop. One of the speakers that they platformed was Nasima Begum. She had previously claimed Israel is committing a ‘Holocaust’ … Continue reading Anne Frank wouldn’t Trust this

The BBC – Bowen, his lies, and the spread of antisemitism

On Thursday night Jeremy Bowen reported from Jerusalem on BBC One News at Ten. The segment lasted for four minutes and three seconds. It is 243 seconds in which Jeremy Bowen gave a masterclass in anti-Israel propaganda. Make no mistake – this type of ‘news reporting’ is not accidental. Every image – each word, is inserted or removed to deliver a message. There is also … Continue reading The BBC – Bowen, his lies, and the spread of antisemitism

The antisemites and their defenders

The obsessions of Antisemites Most people do not understand antisemitism at all. The question “what did he say that was antisemitic” is one almost immediately encountered when challenging antisemites. But antisemitism is not just about individual acts – anti-Jewish hatred is a mindset. The antisemite carries a grossly distorted view of how things work. To an antisemite the world would be much better if only … Continue reading The antisemites and their defenders

The truth behind the anti-Israel ‘Apartheid’ smear

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has just taken its latest steps towards using the Apartheid smear to delegitimise Israel. Everybody with an ounce of sense knows that there is no Apartheid in Israel. And this certainly includes those who have needed to butcher and mash-up several definitions in order to write lengthy reports that argue the opposite. Two minutes of walking through Israel’s … Continue reading The truth behind the anti-Israel ‘Apartheid’ smear

This is not an article about Shireen Abu Akleh

Yesterday, the NYT published the findings of its investigation into the killing of Shireen Abu Akleh. They found that an Israeli soldier probably fired the shot that killed her. Last month I wrote an article about the rancid CNN investigation into the same incident which even disgracefully claimed Israel shot her deliberately. The Washington Post also ran an investigation into the killing. So did Bellingcat. … Continue reading This is not an article about Shireen Abu Akleh

Google search promotes antisemitism

Google is the world’s leading search engine. Over 84% of search traffic across most of the free world originates from Google ( I know this because I googled it). But my own research shows that Google’s own search engine is helping to spread antisemitism into the mainstream. Here is the story: What is in Google’s algorithm Forget the maths that perhaps only Dr Sheldon Cooper … Continue reading Google search promotes antisemitism

CNN find their ‘Dancing Israelis’

Two days ago CNN produced a report that claimed that Israel deliberately targeted Shireen Abu Akleh, the Al Jazeera journalist. The facts themselves are very simple and you won’t find many of them in the CNN report. Given everything we know about the events – and what we do not – we cannot know for sure who fired the shot. It is not about denial. … Continue reading CNN find their ‘Dancing Israelis’

Picturehouse Hamas propaganda

On in cinemas now: a Hamas propaganda movie

On Sunday I went to watch a movie called ‘Eleven Days in May’ at the Crouch End Picturehouse. The movie is about the May 2021 conflict between Israel and Hamas. In the end I sat for almost 90 minutes and watched raw propaganda from Hamas – a proscribed terrorist organisation – being shown as ‘truth’ in a cinema in London. Here is the story. The … Continue reading On in cinemas now: a Hamas propaganda movie

TIME Magazine stuff the jews

TIME Magazine comes out batting for Assad and Hezbolllah

On Friday TIME Magazine published a disjointed and badly-written hit piece. TIME used an under-qualified freelancer to write an innaccurate article that attacks me, ridicules antisemitism and even defends a Hezbollah supporting extremist. How on earth did this article ever get published? The article At its heart the TIME Magazine article is part of TIME’s very public displeasure at Elon Musk’s purchase of twitter (see … Continue reading TIME Magazine comes out batting for Assad and Hezbolllah

Guardian antisemitic

Under attack from the conspiracy theories of the Guardian newspaper

It has long been known that the Guardian newspaper has lost the plot. It is not just anti-Israel obsessive (see examples 1,2,3,4,5). The Guardian jumped down the rabbit hole of ‘woke’ ideology and today provides oxygen for every toxic hard-left movement that exists. But the Guardian also runs smear campaigns to undermine those who oppose its friends. How do I know this for sure? Because … Continue reading Under attack from the conspiracy theories of the Guardian newspaper

BLOOD ON THEIR HANDS

They all have blood on their hands

Across the anti-Zionist activist space (and this includes media, academia, politics and NGOs) there are people who portray Zionists as sub-human evildoers. The lies these people tell and the hate that they spread has real world consequences. These people have the blood of innocents on their hands. The blood flows on Israeli streets In just the last few weeks fourteen Israelis have been murdered by … Continue reading They all have blood on their hands

Walk of Shaima NUS

Shaima Dallali and the National Union of Shame

At the beginning of last week, Shaima Dallali was elected President of the National Union of Students for a two-year term, She had been the President of City University of London Students’ Union. The problem? In short, the NUS has just voted in an antisemitic Islamist extremist as its President. There has been a fair amount of noise over Shaima Dallali’s appointment. To some degree … Continue reading Shaima Dallali and the National Union of Shame

Peter Gregson

Peter Gregson and his racist, abusive email

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

Edinburgh Council hugs Hamas

Edinburgh Council want to hug a proscribed terrorist group

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
