In Scotland they have antisemites who pretend to be Jews. The fake ‘Jewish’ activist is then promoted by the antisemites in the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (SPSC). In turn the SPSC has access to the heart of the Scottish Government and Justice system. In Scotland Jews can be stalked and have their complaints fall on deaf ears. Jewish business has already been chased out of the country. When they eventually try to defend themselves, Jews end up being smeared by a hostile press. Nobody can fairly say that Scotland is safe for Jews.
The ‘Jewish’ activist at the football match.
Last week I reported on a vile demonstration that took place in Glasgow, when a few extremist groups protested about Scotland playing against a football team from the Jewish state. My article focussed on the presence of several notable antisemites. A recent video from the pro-Iranian Press TV brought to light something even more sinister. Their reporter Robert Carter tweeted a video of an interview that took place during the demonstration. Carter introduces the person as a ‘Jewish activist’. The footage went viral.
The person in the video is called Jola AlJakhbeer. In 2018 she married a Palestinian from Gaza, Younis Al Jakhbeer. Her name on Facebook is currently AlJakhbeer Jola but the Facebook URL suggests she may also have used Lola Hazel at some point.
In the interview AlJakhbeer says she is there representing ‘Scottish Jews against Zionism’. It is worth watching the interview and listening to her talk about ‘us’ and ‘we’ and ‘Jewish values’.
After the invention of ‘Scottish Jews against Zionism’, the name ‘Jola Litwitz’ began to appear on letters from Scottish Jewish anti-Zionists. I found occurrences in the National, IJAN and on posts belonging to the SPSC and JVL. It is possible that there are two women with the name Jola in Glasgow that are running Scottish Jews Against Zionism, but it is highly unlikely. Far more logical is that Jola AlJakhbeer has used a surname that sounds more Jewish.
For about three years, Jola went by the name of Jolanta Hadzic. She claimed she was the wife of Bosnian Muslim Muhammed Hadz. At the time this is what Hadz had to say about Jews – that we are all ‘Khazars‘.
Note the mention of Trotsky in the post and the homophobic inference. This is part of the white-genocide ideology copied from a neo-Nazi website such as Stormfront (link – NSFW).
But Jolanta was in Scotland, normally waving banners for the local solidarity group. Here is Jola at her ‘second home’ – the SPSC.
Jola is a frequent agitator on the streets. If you find an image of an anti-Israel protest in Scotland, Jola is likely to be there. She is one of those few whose obsession drives street activity:
When you see anti-Israel stickers plastered around a Scottish city, they may carry Jolanta’s fingerprints:
The ‘Jewish’ hard core antisemite
When ‘Scottish Jews against Zionism’ was founded, Jolanta was the public face. Their first appearance was at a demonstration in Edinburgh in May 2018. She was introduced by her long-time fellow activist, SPSC head honcho Mick Napier.
The key problem here is that Jola is not Jewish. Jola has even uploaded images of her DNA to Facebook, proving she is 86% Eastern European / Russian. According to her DNA there may possibly be a Jewish great-grandparent somewhere – or at 8-11% it could be a statistical error. Hadzic / AlJakhbeer clearly does not understand how all this works and she has uploaded the DNA specifically to suggest Jews are not Semites. This is part of the well-known ‘Khazar’ trope she had ‘liked’ in the post about ‘Jews inventing racism’.
In fact she is a non-Jewish activist who shares Holocaust denial and other antisemitic material. There is nothing that Hadzic appears unwilling to share with her friends. Here are examples of Holocaust denial:
Here are some examples of antisemitic conspiracy, such as 9/11. Israel as ISIS, and Jews being linked to the Islamist suicide bombs in Europe:
Hadzic has posted many antisemitic conspiracy posts. In the next image she shares the age-old trope about Jews kidnapping children to harvest organs:
So Jolanta is a non-Jew who shares Holocaust denial and other hard-core antisemitic material. She is married to a Palestinian and she pretends to be Jewish so as to silence the voice of Jews in Scotland. Mick Napier of the SPSC has known her for years. The SPSC is her ‘second home’. How can Napier not know that Hadzic is not a voice of Scottish Jews? Just as troubling is the fact that I had previously highlighted Hadzic’s Holocaust denial and antisemitic posts in the report I produced on antisemitism in the SPSC in 2017. Hadzic had a prominent place in the report. Napier publicly responded in detail to my report, showing that he had clearly read it.
This leaves a glaring question. If Napier had already known Hadzic for years and he had read a report and seen the evidence of her sharing Holocaust denial and other antisemitic material, how on earth could he introduce her as the voice of Scottish Jews in 2018?
Twitter blue ticks share an antisemitic non-Jew as the voice of Scottish Jews:
It is no surprise that the pro-Hezbollah, pro-Iranian Press TV would run a propaganda piece suggesting that Jola AlJakhbeer is Jewish, in order to distort the voice of Scottish Jews. It is far more troubling when others do it. So when former Labour MP Chris Williamson and MPACUK retweeted Robert Carter’s Press TV post, they are sharing some truly dark antisemitic messaging.
The image on the right above is of MPACUK, the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, using an antisemite and pretend Jew to spread anti-Jewish hate amongst the UK Muslim community.
Hadzic’s Jewish anti-Zionist partner
What takes place in Scotland would never pass without comment south of the border. This is what makes it so scary. The extremists and deception is here in the south, but our press is far more critical, diverse and rigorous. How is it possible that the self-described ‘anti-Zionist Jewish’ group in Scotland has a spokesperson who pretends to be Jewish and shares Holocaust denial and nobody notices? Perhaps it is more a case of ‘nobody cares’. The Scottish press are shamefully complicit.
When SJAZ was founded in 2018, the other central figure was Sarah Glynn. She describes herself as an ‘academic, activist and architect’. When in 2017 I released the report on antisemitism in the SPSC, most of the press coverage was extremely favourable as regards the depth and integrity of my research. However one Scottish outlet, Bella Caledonia, published an article dismissing the work. The author? Sarah Glynn.
In Glynn’s rather pathetic response (my fisking of her article), she went to great lengths to tell everyone why I was wrong. But here is the catch again – Jolanta Hadzic is on many pages of that report. If, (and we have no reason to doubt it) Glynn actually read the report properly so as to write the response, then how on earth is the public face of the group she co-founded – a Holocaust denying antisemite included in its pages? When Glynn is one of the five names from SJAZ signed at the bottom of a letter published in the National, does she really know the ‘Jola Litwitz’ whose name appears alongside hers? Because ‘Jola Litwitz’ has absolutely NO internet footprint beyond signing letters for Scottish Jews against Zionism. The name of Jola AlJakhbeer, the face of SJLAZ, is mysteriously absent from these letters.
The SPSC connection in the Scottish Parliament
My 2017 report evidenced ‘off the scale’ levels of antisemites at SPSC gatherings. The exercise in quantifying antisemitic activism in Scotland was repeated at various events through 2017 and 2018. In 2018 I also first exposed the antisemite who was the face of Scottish Jews against Zionism. If anyone in Scotland cared about Jews and antisemitism, the Scottish press would have been all over it and the SPSC would have immediately been rendered beyond the pale. Unfortunately, that is simply is not the case.
The image below is of Scottish MSP Sandra White at an anti-Israel demonstration in Glasgow in July 2017.
The person on the stage with White who is holding the Palestinian flag, is none other than Jolanta Hadzic / AlJakhbeer – the pretend Jew who shares Holocaust denial material. The photo suggests ‘all’ the people involved are part of the SPSC.
In 2017 the SPSC held an event outside the Scottish Parliament to protest at the arrival of the Israeli Ambassador. According to their own Facebook post, MSPs from all parties (except the Conservatives) spoke at the SPSC event. MSP Claudia Beamish even shared a photo of the SPSC demonstration on her own page.
MSP John Finnie openly has Mick Napier as a Facebook friend.
Just last week the SPSC had another petition heard at the Scottish Parliament. There is a whole record of references to the SPSC on the Scottish Parliament website. Can you imagine the outrage if the UK Government in Westminster spent its time listening to the arguments put forward by the BNP?
Scotland has adopted the IHRA in full. No politician anywhere has any business linking themselves to an organisation as toxic as the SPSC.
The plot that wasn’t
As a further sign of hostility in Scotland, we can look at the media. This week the Daily Record broke a story about what they describe as a false flag plot to discredit the SPSC.
Except there was no plot to frame anyone and there was certainly no vandalism attack. A relatively unknown activist with a sock account, attempted a ‘sting’ to expose anti-Israel haters. The target was one hater in particular and much of the other side of this story will soon come out. Beyond a silly remark posted in a backwater fake FB profile that was trying to get a reaction from the target- there seems to be nothing to this angle of the story.
It shows the hostility in Scotland, that this was taken all out of proportion and turned into something it clearly was not. The National ran it as a headline on their website, suggesting that there had been a detailed and sinister attempt to actually frame an organisation.
Because of the way the story was told in the media, everyone with whom I have discussed it believes that the man actually vandalised his own house to point the finger at the SPSC.
It is a simple matter to prove. Matthew Berlow made a comment on a Facebook post in January 2019 but was only exposed much later. Where is the plot? Was there graffiti? No. Was there a complaint made? No. Was this information spread in order to frame anyone? No. Was it reported to the police? No.
There is just one ill-judged comment on a personal Facebook page. That isn’t a plot. This is the way that a story about one silly Facebook comment went viral.
Seeking balance I looked at the archive of the Daily Record.
Where is the criticism of the antisemites?
Having seen the Daily Record jump into exaggerated and deceptive action over a single Facebook comment, I searched their website to see how they deal with the endless stream of antisemitic posts and actions of anti-Israel activists in Scotland. I found nothing.
I searched for Mick Napier and found only quotes or positive and sympathetic comments. There was no link between his name and antisemitism, his convictions, or the fact his organisation chased a Jewish business out of Scotland.
I then searched for the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign and found more of the same.
The question is why? How is it possible that one worthless FB comment can be turned into headline news, but there is nothing about the years of antisemitic agitation by a key anti-Israel group in Scotland.
A plot? The Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign introduced a non-Jewish antisemitic activist as a voice of the Jews in Scotland in order to silence and discredit the real voices of the Jews in Scotland. That sure sounds like a sinister antisemitic plot to me. Just a shame the politicians and media in Scotland are all too busy defending the antisemites to worry about the Scottish Jews.
