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
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?
Well this was a story I didn’t see myself writing until about 7pm yesterday (Thursday 2nd). I am often digging around inside Wikipedia, researching the bias of some of the more notorious antisemitic / anti-Zionist editors. Whilst researching my latest piece, I looked at the editorial history of one of the more prolific haters to check which articles he had most recently been butchering. I … Continue reading Antisemites are trying to delete my Wikipedia page
The ultimate purpose of peer review is to maintain integrity and standards in academic research. It is therefore a policing exercise. Academic research that has undergone peer review is considered to be validated and can be published in respected academic journals and spread around as ‘science’. Wikipedia, other academics, journalists, and students build from these journals safe in the knowledge that the peer review system … Continue reading Academics against Jews – another shameful story
I am back down in Brighton for the Labour Party Conference. Credit were it is due – this is a very different conference from the ones I attended when Corbyn was leader. But it is also true that if you scratch the surface there are signs of serious trouble ahead. And as a reminder of how toxic the party can still be – I was … Continue reading The Labour Party conference (and being thrown out at another JVL event)
Radicalisation is defined as the ‘the action or process of causing someone to adopt radical positions on political or social issues’. Extremists know that they cannot easily enter the mainstream using traditional routes, but Wikipedia, one of the world’s most popular websites, has provided them with a direct voice into every home with online access. Editing Wikipedia, certainly at the high level needed to consistently … Continue reading Project Wikipedia – meet the antisemitic and terrorist supporting editors
The electoral defeat of Bibi Netanyahu has done a lot to expose the ethical vacuum in much of the leftist Jewish Diaspora that both obsessed about and despised him. From the day he was no longer Prime Minister, the ground on which this modern ‘pseudo-Zionist’ left stood, simply melted way. Three recent examples spring to mind – the first was when some Jews who call … Continue reading The ethical demise of the Jewish Diaspora left
With pro-terrorist supporters and antisemitic conspiracy theorists producing their news, there is something truly rotten at the BBC. Just recently BBC journalist Tala Halawa was fired for having tweeted that ‘Hitler was right’. This latest story built as it was researched, so bear with me – you certainly won’t be disappointed. It started with a tweet from Tom Bateman – a BBC Middle East Correspondent. … Continue reading Exclusive: Meet Alaa Daraghme – the BBC’s Hezbollah loving Journo
Larry Sanger, the man who co-founded Wikipedia recently said that ‘nobody should trust Wikipedia.’ Sanger describes the Wikipedia environment – in which conservative voices are stifled or banned and criticism of leftist ideology – where the argument does appear – reads like a defence counsel’s brief. This is damning criticism from a man who would know better than most. But Sanger only gets part of … Continue reading Make no mistake – Wikipedia is at war with the Jews
Last December I ran an exclusive about a deeply antisemitic conspiracy article that was published in the academic esharp magazine at Glasgow University. ‘esharp‘ is an ‘international online journal for postgraduate research’ and Glasgow University is very proud of the outlet. The University website even states that all the post-graduate papers are double-blind peer-reviewed. Having read the paper and researched it thoroughly, I complained that … Continue reading Victory – as Glasgow University apologises for publishing antisemitic article
