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?
At its heart the TIME Magazine article is part of TIME’s very public displeasure at Elon Musk’s purchase of twitter (see examples 1,2,3,4,5). Those at TIME seem to think that if you create a space in which the different parts of the political spectrum are treated equally – then the sky will fall in.
I do not want to deflect attention from the core of this piece by spending time on discussing Twitter. Needless to say I take issue with a forum in which people can freely call for a genocide of Jews, but are punished if they question someone’s pronouns. There is little doubt that Twitter’s Overton window is in desperate need of an overhaul. This change of course scares those who have enjoyed the echo chamber created by a suppression of contra voices. That is why TIME is so vocally opposed to it.
The article attacking me was published under the umbrella of ‘anti-Musk’. It argues that allowing more freedom to ‘right-wing’ voices will increase the level of harassment upon left-wing voices. TIME displays no concern at all for the abuse when it is delivered the other way around. According to TIME – it is just the left that needs protection. It seems TIME is completely happy when those it disagrees with are not allowed to speak at all.
The antisemitic hit-piece
The article opens with a heavy dose of antisemitism. It claims that Jews attack Pro-Palestinians with ‘smears’ (accusations of antisemitism) – even reaching out to their place of work or study:
The journalist Rebecca Chowdhury (more on her shortly) reaches out for a key example of this harassment – and the best she could find was me. Worse still – and digging a massive hole for herself – the example she uses was about a Lebanese based, pro-Hezbollah, Assad-doting, US-hating, propaganda agent, named Hadi Nasrallah (more on him shortly too).
I’d be interested to know what possible damage my justified ‘outing’ of Hadi Nasrallah can possibly do in his Lebanese, Hezbollah loving stronghold.
The article goes on to suggest I conflate ‘critiques of Israel with antisemitism.’ I am not going to waste time pointing out these basic accusations against me are false. The journalist is just throwing mud.
The result is an empty hit piece that relies on antisemitism to get its message across. It is disgraceful that TIME used its platform to downplay antisemitism in such an awful fashion. I would hope that either CAMERA or Honest Reporting (or both) will take this matter further. Across the west, antisemitic incidents are on the rise. TIME’s solution is to silence Jews who complain – support banning them from platforms – and to suggest that their accusations of racism are inherently dishonest. The article even opened with a clear example of the Livingstone Formulation.
Would TIME publish an article in which racism against any other minority group is treated in such fashion? Shameful stuff.
The strange TIME Magazine journalist
I wanted to look more closely at the journalist, but it was difficult to do due diligence here. There is nothing visible that would suggest TIME Magazine would publish an article by Rebecca Chowdhury. The freelance journalist has a short and irrelevant history of minor articles in small progessive online outlets. She had a minor and insignificant gig at Human Rights Watch. There is nothing in her scrapbook at all that suggests she would be deemed capable of writing an expert article on Middle Eastern geo-politics, antisemitism and the algorithms of a global social media website. Why on earth did TIME publish an article she wrote that targets Jewish victims of antisemitism?
I searched Chowdhury’s Twitter feed for criticism of human rights abuse in global conflict areas:
- China = 0 (she did retweet something about ‘Chinatown’)
- Russia = 0
- Pakistan = 0 (she did retweet something about the weather in Pakistan)
- Syria = 0 (she did mention Syria in an attack on Nikki Hayley)
- Myanmar = 0
- Iran = 0 (she did retweet calls for an end to sanctions on Iran)
Nothing about human rights abuse anywhere – except Israel of course. There were dozens of tweets attacking Israel. In the example below she pushes the ridiculous notion that Israelis stole ‘Palestinian food’. This is empty rhetoric taken from notorious propaganda sites. I doubt she would apply the same logic to Bangladeshi or Pakistani food. Did they steal their cuisines? Or is it only the millions of Israelis, descendants of Iraqi, Yemenite, Moroccan, Syrian and Egyptian Jews – expelled from their homes and settling in Israel – that she accuses of such theft? Maybe she also wants the 2 million Israeli arabs to be put on a diet of gefilte fish. This is ignorant, blind hate – pure and simple:
Chowdhury often retweets lies and empty propaganda claims about Israel, but it doesn’t end there. In the next tweet she complains because Jews had been listed as the ‘most targeted religious group in the US’. Chowdhury is clearly ignorant on the subject, and she is left pushing offensive sectarian tripe that specifically attacks Jews. Every statistical report that has emerged from the west in recent years shows that Jews are proportionally more likely to be the target of a racially / religiously motivated attack. Yet Chowdhury dismisses this struggle against racism as some type of a conspiracy because it doesn’t fit with her agenda:
You can see the same strand of thought in her TIME article when she dismisses claims about antisemitism as nothing more than ‘smears’ wich are maliciously devised to silence Palestinian voices.
Her timeline is full of references to ‘white supremacy‘, ‘defunding the police‘ and issues about ‘colonisation‘. Chowdhury has a major chip on her shoulder about the US, and she even attacks immigrants who seek to successfully ‘assimilate’:
Rebecca Chowdhury is a child of Muslim Bangladeshi immigrants that has a problem with both the US and the Jewish state. She is a dull, ignorant, lazy, cliche.
TIME Magazine and support for pro-Hezbollah extremists
But the moral black hole which Time Magazine created for itself doesn’t end with just publishing a lazy antisemitic attack against me. The article cites me as its key example of empty smear attacks, using the Hadi Nasrallah case to highlight how Twitter today protects ‘pro-Palestinian voices’ from what TIME suggests are empty claims. It even belittles my suggestion that he is an extremist. So who is this voice TIME magazine believes is worthy of protection?
Hadi Nasrallah had shared a video of a protest against the Israeli ambassador at a university event in London. The video had gone viral. As an investigative journalist I felt it was clearly in the public interest to expose the extremist hand behind the footage. The image I shared that Twitter wanted to remove was an image of Hadi Nasrallah proudly standing on a Syrian army tank. Note he posted it publicly on his FB page – there was nothing private about it:
But that is only the start. Nasrallah openly supports Hezbollah. A radical Islamic terror group proscribed in both the UK and US:
His timeline is full of pro-Assad propaganda and rhetoric:
Nasrallah mourned for Qasem Soleimani the ‘king of Iranian terrorists’ when the US killed him:
And on Israel his message is clear:
Which all raises a major issue. Hadi Nasrallah’s posts are all publicly available. The journalist surely checked to see what image had been deleted (she even reposted the image of Nasrallah on the Syrian tank) – and the TIME Magazine fact checkers / lawyers must have cleared the article. They must have known about Nasrallah’s pro-Hezbollah stance. Yet their article places Hezbollah supporting Nasrallah as the victim, and I am the one Twitter needs to protect him from. Chowdhury even says this explicitly:
This did not even have anything to do with antisemitism. TIME knew what they were defending.
By using my case as an example, TIME MAGAZINE is stating that they *FAVOUR* social media platforms silencing and punishing journalists who expose information about terrorist supporters. And by air-quoting my description of Hadi Nasrallah as an ‘extremist’, they are clearly suggesting that support for Hezbollah, Assad worship, and anti-US hatred is not extreme in their eyes.
TIME Magazine and the community of the rotten
Just as we saw with the Guardian last week, TIME Magazine considers itself intellectually and morally superior. Like most of the ‘community of the good’, they are supremacists who believe that only those who agree with them should be given a voice.
This example shows how just how rotten they have become. They allowed an Israel-hating Muslim journalist to take a free shot at Jews who suffer antisemitism, and they ended up publicly defending Hezbollah propaganda.
Last week I was the target of a Guardian antisemitic conspiracy. This week TIME Magazine spread lies about me. Clearly I am having an impact. You can help support my research below.
Help me fight antisemitism
My research is unique and hard hitting. It also depends on community support.
I battle back against those who seek to revise history, demonise Israel – and I expose antisemitism wherever it is found. I fight when others don’t. The results speak for themselves and for eight years I have been exposing hate and creating headlines.

you’re still a dirty zionist, land-thieving, murdering race of people.
^^^ anti-Zionism not antisemitism version 184,567,387
Wrong David, much nearer the 200,000,000 mark.
Gentlemen, you forgot to use ‘the magic number’.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got to pray 🙏 ✡️
my my; what a string of baseless, evidence free allegations.
maybe you can help me; I’m trying to find any mention of Palestinians or Palestine in the Koran
Happy ETERNAL NAKBA you Fascist Pig! 🙂
Remember 9/11, Pan Am 103, London’s 7/7, Charlie Hebdo, Bataclan, DC Beltway snipers, Halabja poison gas attack, Mumbai, …
Maz speaks truth.
You’re not much for using what I must deduce is your limited IQ there, are ya Maz.
And you’re a bigoted, know-nothing moron.
Poor “eternal victim” thinks that Zionist is an offensive word or something! lol If you learn to use keyboard, you can Google the definition of the term you use, just not to look that ignorant (to put it softly) next time. In fact, supporting the only Jewish state in the world, i.e. being a Zionist, is a sign of integrity.
Please keep going you are the best.
“Dirty”? How rude !
Sue them for the lies. The only way
Could this be the same Harvey Rose that was the P of the ZF when Scoffie was the joint VP ? when they were known as the twin pillars of Zio nu0t jobbery.
You certainly know when you are making an impact when they resort to name calling and besmirching you as the only form of defence they can offer.
Keep it up you are doing great
“The world has a thriving Jewish state”, tweets DC.
The same thing was said about apartheid South Africa.
You silly sausage Brucie. Nobody ever said South Africa was a “thriving Jewish State”.
Apartheid South Africa used the same modus operandi as your so-called “Jewish State”.
But nobody expected it to implode as quickly as it did. BUT IT DID! And So will apartheid Israel.
But nobody is boycotting Israel apart from you Wankbbi Levy….
And nobody gives a shit about where you buy your oranges and avocados from….
Open up and suck on that……
He wanks vewy highly in Wome….
Almost time for your medication “Ken”.
More words of “wisdom” from Wankbbi Levy….and all typed from the safety of his rubber bedroom in his secure care facility….
Isn’t the NHS a wonderful thing?
Used to subscribe to TIME years ago and disappointed to see it’s got to the stage where it employs such poor journalism.
David you do realise you are starting to come over as the battiest bat in the belfry.
That was obvious a long time ago. Have you noticed he only gets a handful of views on his YouTube channel? 🙂
If someone believes that Jews are. ‘a people’, Jews will inherit Israel and Israel is a home for all Jews, does it mean they are a Zionist?
Time for your tablets Jack T(wat)
Jack T speaks truth “Ken”. Almost time for your enema. Don’t forget, I’m also a Doctor. 😷
Keep proving to the world what a fraud you are Wankbbi….
You are doing a great job with that…..
You always have……
Brucie Levy the fake rabbi and Holocaust revisionist and denigrator
You a doctor 🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂
Brucie Levy the fake rabbi and Holocaust revisionist and denigrator
You are such a dimwit and historical ignoramus
Whites arrived in South Africa in the 16th to 17th century. The Afrikaaners were voted into power and started apartheid in 1948.
They were defeated in the late 1980’s and conceded in 1992
Jews have been in the ‘Land of Israel’ for over 3000 years, having states a number of times, and re-establishing the current state in 1948.
We really don’t have any intention of surrendering it to twirps like you
David re your report on Tom Suarez and his book……Do you accept Scoffies claim that he was the co author ? Don’t bother deleting the claim I always keep the reciepts o))
of what relevance is this Stephen. or are you just dipping your toes into your own sh-th-le to be fanciful
Jonathan spent a lot of time researching that piece of work. His name is on the report alongside mine. It is a great piece of research, we worked on it together and Jonathan should be proud of the enormous input he had it putting it together. (is that quote good enough for you or do you want me to talk about how after we had spent the day together at the archives, and worked together in the evening running through the notes, we would collapse together on the sofa and stare deeply into each others eyes?).
David will you be joining your fellow Zio nut jobs in the National Jewish Assembly ?
David how come you nor Scoffie nor Tesc Harv nor Simple Simon are on the JNS advirory board ?
Oh Stephen, sometimes you disappoint me. I think you are paying attention and then I find out you’ve been playing footsie with Brucie this whole time.
I am unaffiliated. I will remain unaffiliated. I never agree with any one organisation enough to ‘merge’ and I certainly would never put myself in a position where I cannot express both my satisfaction and disatisfaction freely.
One day, if I ever write a book about these years – you might even find yourself surprised. Tell you what – I’ll even give you a signed copy.
that would be nice
Gnasher said……I fucking hope I get an extensive and favourable mention
Be sure that your book is released in a limited edition of six million.
And reserve me a signed copy too!
Oooo . …….bellers has got the bit between his teeth and gone all antagonistic or something like that in the 😛😁🤣🙊🙉🙈
This may be a good time to remind Ian’s casual reader just who it is that co authors these blogs. I have to say this is my most brilliant effort. Though not as brilliant as the report on David is going to be.
Jew of Conscience told me that on the day of the Ahava BUYcott, the door of the shop was super-glued. Oy vey! Lol.
Leave it out. Getting Ahava kicked out of London is the one achievement of Scoffie’ sad sorry life.
‘co-authors these blogs’….
oh Stephen. That is like saying the Chronicles of Narnia (you know, that tale of a non existent land like Palestine), wasn’t actually written by C.S. Lewis, because somewhere in his career he co-wrote a piece of work with someone else.
You continually disappoint. Remember the time you got the rat pack in a frenzy because after I outed an active Jeremy Corbyn in a deeply antisemitic group, you tried to smear me by finding a random group I was a member of – and saying ‘it was the same’? That was funny… pathetic and lame, but still funny. These empty smears run as far as your fellow fruitcakes.
But you needn’t worry. I have outlets such as TIME Magazine and the Guardian on my tail these days. Maybe you can sell your bunkum to them.
David you are beginning to display an understanding of the nature of the game on a par with Ian’s. Sell ?
Reninds of Michael Collins response when he walked into a West Cork pub and they said ” You have a nerve coming in here selling your Treaty “.
” I am not selling I am buying”
You se in order to win any game you have to have at least a rudimentary understanding of what the game is..
Selling is your game buddy..
Funny, pathetic and lame ? Upset you at the time though didn’t it? I have the receipt for that too.
David did you mention fruitcakes ?
I’ll explain further in the little personal text I put next to my sig on the book I give you
Our keen eyed casual reader will have spotted the reappearance of Stephen’s much copy/pasted link above that first saw daylight nearly 15 years ago. ( when that Tony Blah was the British Prime Minister).
To fill in the time on a quiet Saturday morning on the Israeli beachfront, I thought we could play a little game. Pick 5 of Stephen’s most used slogans and arrange them into an amusing sentence. It needn’t make sense. His rarely do, and any of his Jew baiting digs and his personal grudges are allowed.
There’ll be a pint of non specific on the bar at Mollie Bloom’s on me for the winning entry.
Brucie Levy the fake rabbi and Holocaust revisionist and denigrator
You’re back to your Holocaust denigrating so you must be short of anything vaguely intelligible and interesting to say
But then, you pretending to be a rabbi and a doctor must leave your fantasy driven imagination with an insatiable need to be heard as you expound on your Antisemitic tropes
Games eh, Stephen?
Well it’s a lovely spring morning here in eternal Israel and as I’m in an excellent mood here’s a friendly nudge. Remember, we’re the Home Team, so if you want to keep visiting every day, by all means bring your own games, but you have to go into the Guest Room and play them quietly to yourself.
Oh, and if Brucie shits in the airing cupboard again, it’s on you. You signed him in so you have to clean it up.
oh I am doing some cleaning up thats for sure
Very good, and look sharp about it. None of that “I’m deffo writing DC up. You’ll see” bollox from circa 2017 and never got round to.
You’ve had Brucie ‘anging by a thread for 5 years, poor sod.
I was waiting for that. I am a very patient man as Tesco Harv will testify. When I finally got round to it he shit his pants and invited me to Finchley ( despite him living in Acton ) to collect my defamation papers
Good. I’d hate to miss it. What would a slow moving Sunday in Samaria be without my lickle rebel solja and his write-ups.
Oh I don’t think you will miss it
You never know. It may get lost in all your copy/pastes from 2006.
gotta love copy and paste
DUMB BELLamy loves “copy and paste” because of the glue.
Who’s getting excited for Stephen’s big reveal ?
No, nobody. Oh well, I certainly am.
No year here is complete without our lickle rebel solja threatening to present his Grand Expose on summat or other. Maybe this will be the year.
I do hope for him that it is successfully shared by Greenslime and his ilk. I hope that the hidden antisemitic FB groups all post the article inside and talk amongst themselves about how I am a extremist – holding up an image of me travelling on the same train as someone else as solid proof. I hope his successful decontextualising and misreporting of what I think and believe fools all those who swim in the sewers in which he swims. Who knows, he may even grab their version of the Oscar and be noticed by ‘megastars’ such as Winstanley or Williamson.
I really do not know what I will do. My image amongst the haters is so important to me. After all, nobody has ever written hit pieces about me before…
Tut tut Dvid you really just don’t get the nature of the game.
With any luck Dave, Stephen will pen a few lines about the game he plays with himself in his Grand Expose. Should be a hoot for his pals down the Elephant and Jew Baiter.
Of course I don’t get the nature of the game Stephen… I am obviously clueless. We go a long way back…and when we met here when this blog started, neither of were known – neither of us had any followers – neither of us had made an impact – neither of us were taken seriously..
It is clear from all that has happened since 2015 – you understand the nature of the game far better than I do…
