'Palestinian Privilege' Rule 172: Resistance and Human Rights

Especially relevant in the light of yesterday's massacre (see here and here)



See the full series of 'Palestinian' privilege

Massacre of Jewish family in their home equated with deaths of violent protesters

A couple of years ago I published the graphic below highlighting the typical way killings in Israel were reported. Yesterday an Arab terrorist massacred 3 members of a Jewish family in their home while eating Friday night dinner. Several hours earlier 3 Arabs In Jerusalem were killed when they attacked security forces with guns, fire-bombs and rocks during mass riots. Those media reports which reported the Jewish deaths at all (see example below) simply said:
3 Palestinians and 3 'Israeli settlers' killed in violent clashes

An elderly couple and their daughter among those brutally murdered. Story still developing. But the terrorist was whipped in to a frenzy by the lies of the Palestine Authority supported by the western media.

Update: See how the media is reporting it.  And below apparently is the smiling terrorist getting first class Israeli medical treatment, looking forward to becoming an official "Hero of Palestine" and a millionaire from the Palestine Authority terrorist salary scheme funded by Western taxpayers:

Here we go again: what REALLY offends 'peaceful Muslims'

Mass protests planned throughout Europe (they've already been taking place throughout the Middle East) and of course mass anti-Israel media hysteria of those. Nothing brings out Jew hate more than Israelis trying to stop themselves being killed.


Remember: it's not just about Jew hate. It's also about 'Palestinian' privilege:

Definition of an 'enemy/antisemite' according to leftist Jews

With news today that in the UK the Board of Deputies went after Katy Hopkins, while in the USA the ADL went for Mike Cernovich, here is a reminder of the need to be a little sceptical when leftist Jewish organisations identify their 'enemies'.

Blog by parents of murdered Israeli teenager censored as 'hate site' in the UK


11 July 2017 Update: Following a lot of interest in this article and the subsequent one posted by the Roths, Symantec have dropped the hate classification for their blog and also for Elder of Ziyon. However, the 'hate' classification for this site and the others mentioned below remains.

I have previously posted about how pro-Israel blogs in the UK (and elsewhere including even in Israel) are censored or blocked completely by internet service providers.

After discovering that his own site was blocked by Sky-UK, Elder of Ziyon discovered that this was due to Symantec classifying his site as "Hate". He noted (as I had previously reported) that other pro-Israel sites such as Israellycool, Israel Matzav and Abu Yehuda all get the same "Hate" classification. Most internet service providers (including Sky, Virgin, and EE) use the Symantec classification and normally either block such sites or require 'parental unlocking' to view them.

Using the symantec link I checked a number of other pro-Israel sites (including this one http://edgar1981.blogspot.co.uk/) and found that they too were classified as "Hate". Included inevitably were pamelagellerjihadwatch  and thereligionofpeace, as well as the outstanding sultanknish.

But what shocked me was that the "Hate" classification was also assigned to This Ongoing War.  This is the moving blog dedicated to the memory of 15-year-old Malki Roth who was murdered in the 2001 Hamas massacre in Jerusalem’s Sbarro restaurant that was engineered by Ahlam Tamimi. Malki's parents Frima and Arnold have campaigned for Tamimi - who is on the FBI's most-wanted terrorist list - to be brought to justice (she is currently living in luxury, inciting more terrorism, under the protection of the Jordanian government who have refused a US extradition request). While it is shameful that all of the above sites are classified as hate sites, it is especially pernicious in this case, as it demonstrates the extent to which the antisemites who masquerade as  'Palestine supporters' in the UK will go to prevent the truth being heard and justice being done.

Inevitably none of the anti-Israel sites, most of which are dripping with overt antisemitism, are classified as hate sites. Hence https://bdsmovement.net/ and http://www.brightonpsc.org/ are classified simply as "Politics", while http://mondoweiss.net/ is classified as "shopping, blogging", and most bizarrely one of the leading provider of blood libels https://www.palestinecampaign.org/ is actually classified as a "Law site".  We know it is the antisemitic 'Palestine supporters' in the UK who are behind the campaign to censor all pro-Israel sites. As evidence that these 'Palestine supporters' are not actually concerned about 'hate' (but are simply driven by hate of the Jewish state), I noticed that the most aggressively anti-Muslim website that I  know of  - http://www.barnhardt.biz/ - is classified simply as "religion. This is because it never discusses Israel at all and so doesn't come under the radar of the antisemites.

For the record it is also worth noting that most of the sites will not be blocked outside of the UK because the classification changes when the "uk" suffix is changed to another country.  For example the Israel version of this site http://edgar1981.blogspot.co.il/ is classified as "Dynamic, Blogger, English".

UPDATE: Symantec have sent me all round the houses, first through a FaceBook messenger conversation when they finally said they were not qualified to help and told me to contact their regular support desk which has no email address. I called the UK number (which unlike the US one is not free) and was passed from person to person eventually being put through to the mobile number of someone who 'should be able to help'. No answer, left message, no response so far. Also it seems Symantec have a long history with this sort of behaviour - they were doing the same thing to other types of sites that did not fit the politically correct (meaning extreme leftist) narrative.

Jewish Voice: the group trying to silence Tommy Robinson is yet another socialist anti-Israel front claiming it is 'pro-Israel', 'pro-peace'


In the face of an Islamist terror campaign and a wave of antisemitism (much of it from the extreme left) yet another group claiming to speak for British Jews has declared that the real threat to Britain and its Jews is ....Tommy Robinson. Here is their twitter statement of 27 June:


On their twitter page yesterday they announced they were 'launching a social media campaign to fight Tommy Robinson' which included the lie that 'Tommy Robinson is no friend of the Jews'. Tommy himself responded with this:


I'm not going to repeat here why Jewish Voice (and much of the main stream media) are so completely wrong about Tommy Robinson - you can see the links or just read what Brian John Thomas wrote about Tommy's trip to Israel last year.  My focus here is to expose who Jewish Voice are and why it is they who are a danger to British Jews.

Their mission statement ("About us") says
A group of people brought together by the Jeremy Corbyn movement for leadership of the Labour party has united to develop a Jewish community project to give a voice to socialist and progressive Jewish values.
They go on to say
..we feel that it is important to give voice to the alternative, socialist view from our community.
but as with most 'socialists' they do not feel that others have the same right to a voice or viewpoint that is different from theirs. Hence, their campaign to silence critics of Islam. Indeed, based on their twitter page their mission statement seems to have changed to 'fighting Islamophobia':


And, inevitably, they also support the BDS campaign to boycott Israel even though their two co-founders Yonatan Higgsmith and Moshe Ariel claim to be 'pro-Israel' as well as 'pro-Palestinian'. 




In fact, like those other 'pro-Israel, pro-Palestine' leftist organisations Yachad and JStreet, everything they do and say with respect to Israel actually involves its deligitimization while ignoring Palestinian terrorism. But Jewish Voice seem to have more in common with the openly anti-Zionist (and some would argue antisemitic) 'Jewish Voice for Peace'.

To get a feel for why they are a danger for British Jews take a look at this video of Moshe Ariel on the BBC. In a segment about the boycott Israel campaign he was on - literally - as the "Jewish voice". Except .... he actually says he supports the boycott (but only disagrees with some of the campus tactics used):

(incidentally this is a standard BBC tactic when discussing Israel; they typically have a panel of hostile speakers that is 'balanced' by a Jewish or Israeli speaker who also just happens to be either highly critical of Israel or an open anti-Zionist).  

And if that isn't bad enough check out this article on the J Voice website by Ariel after the heinous terrorist attack in Jerusalem in January in which a 'Palestinian' ISIS supporter continually ran over and killed 4 young cadets (including three young girls). Ariel argued that this was not an act of terrorism:
"Arguing that it is not terrorism may be controversial, but it shouldn’t be. ....Acts of violence in Israel/Palestine, are very different to similar acts of violence carried out in Europe and the United States. Palestinian violence and the subsequent Israeli response is a result of the occupation"
Moshe Ariel is a student at Sheffield University - so anybody who is a student there there needs to be aware of his agenda.

Like Ariel, Yonatan Higgsmith also claims to be a "Palestinianist" who is also a "Zionist"  citing the fact that his views are really not much different to the Meretz party in Israel. But, he also states his loyalty to Jeremy Corbyn and his commitment to Corbyn's statement on Palestine which, while making ludicrous demands on Israel, fails to call out Palestinian terrorism and incitement. It is important to note that Higgsmith is active with Limmud the mainstream Jewish organisation that claims it is 'dedicated to Jewish learning' but which increasingly pushes a hard-left, anti-Zionist message to naive, ill-informed participants at their events.

It is not clear whether 'Jewish Voice' is much more than just Ariel and Higgsmith, but they do have 10,500 twitter followers. And, as is evidenced from Ariel's BBC appearance, being critical of Israel in the UK always provides them a platform and respect denied to others.

Israel-hating bigot Mohamed Salah returns to the Premier League


Update 23 June 2017Salah has returned to the English Premier League, having signed for Liverpool for a club record £34 million.


Update (one year on) 2 Feb 2015: Salah has been quietly moved out of Chelsea having barely played a game for them 

The following was posted 24 Jan 2014 with the title "If Mohamed Salah is not an antisemite Abramovic can get him to prove it". Seems like he never did....

Mohamed Salah is an Egyptian footballer who has just signed for Chelsea - a club owned by Roman Abramovic - for £11 million. The English sports media this morning is covering this story with  headlines like "Salah: I am not an antisemite".  Of course, Salah is not an antisemite. Like most Muslim non-antisemites he does not explicitly hate all 'Jews', only 'Jews who believe they have a right to love in their historical homeland', i.e.'Zionists'.

In August 2013 Salah's team Basel FC were drawn against Maccabi Tel-Aviv in a champions league qualifier**. In the home tie Salah refused to shake the hands of the Israeli team, which is a remarkable achievement given that the EUFA protocol requires the home team to line up while the away team walks along the line shaking each hand. Salah managed to 'avoid this' by going to the touchline, pretending to tie up his shoe laces. He also refused to shake hands with any Maccabi players after the game, which Basel won 1-0. After the match Salah announced he would refuse to play in the return leg in Israel. Only after his club threatened to terminate his contract if he did not travel he announced:
I will fly to Israel , Football is more important than politics and it is my job. In my thoughts I am going to play in Palestine and not Israel and I am also going to score and win there. The Zionist flag won’t be shown in the Champions League.
Elder of Ziyon covered the events of the return leg in Tel Aviv in which Salah again avoided shaking hands with the Maccabi players (this time by bumping them instead). As usual EUFA, who are so determined to 'drive out racism' from the game refused to take any action when it came down to antisemitism.

In December 2012 when Chelsea's star player (another Muslim) Edin Hazard joined a petition to boycott Israel from hosting the EUFA under-21 championship I wrote to Chelsea asking if Roman Abramovic (who claims to love Israel) was aware of the stance of one of his players. My letter actually produced a positive outcome. In signing Salah, Abramovic could still turn this into something positive by asking his new employee to publicy apologise for his previous comments and to prove his sincerity by getting Chelsea to play a match in Tel Aviv - with Salah shaking hands with the Israelis.

** Incredibly Basel have been drawn against Maccabi Tel Aviv again - this time in the Europa League - another 2-legged tie to be played in February. This is presumably one of the reasons Salah was keen to get a move away from Basel in mid-season.

Update: I have sent the following letter to my contact at Chelsea (note I promised not to reveal the name of this person):
We were in contact about a year ago when I alerted you to the fact that Edin Hazard was named as one of the footballers supporting an antisemitic boycott of Israel hosting the EUFA under-21 championships. You were very helpful on that occasion and were able to confirm that Hazard did not support the boycott.
Today I see that Chelsea have received assurances from Mohamed Salah that he did not make the antisemitic statements and actions that have been previously attributed to him. I am not sure what antisemitic statements and actions this refers to to but what I DO know is that he WAS certainly responsible for a number of actions and statements in August (in relation to Basel's two-legged tie with Maccabi Tel-Aviv) that I (and many others) consider to be pure antisemitism. There is no denying, for example, that he refused in both games to shake the hands of his Israeli opponents and there is no denying that he initially refused to even go to the match in Israel and when he was forced to by Basel FC he made an antisemitic statement about Israel. The details are on a blog posting I have made today.
Fortunately, as I said in the article, there is a simple way that Salah can at least genuinely apologize for his actions and demonstrate that he is indeed not an antisemite. Chelsea can and should arrange for him to go to Israel and publicly shake the hands of the Maccabi players. Ideally this could be done in a friendly match involving Chelsea FC. Anything less than such an action will always leave open the notion that Chelsea have signed a nasty, unsporting antisemite who also demonstrates a total lack of respect for his fellow professionals. I do not believe Chelsea FC would be happy to have such an employee would they?
Yours
Edgar Davidson
Update 31 Jan 2014: Chelsea have responded to me


Update: I have now compiled a catalogue of players involved in the football Jihad.

The Neturei Karta: not Jews in any real sense



As anybody who has ever witnessed an anti-Israel demonstration (such as the Al Quds march last Sunday) will know Neturei Karta are the 'Jews' who are the obligatory stars always placed at the front. They provide the ideal cover for the other demonstrators to spew as much antisemitic hatred as they wish.  Some people have argued that they cannot possibly be 'real' Jews because they not only call for the destruction of the State of Israel, but also praise terrorists who murder Jewish children. But what people are less aware of is that even their 'ultra-orthadox Judiasm' (which is the entire basis for the antisemites to revere them as 'true Jews') is actually something of a scam. Evidence of this is their attendance at demonstrations that take place on Shabbat. As I reported here I witnessed them a few years back at one such demo at Trafalgar Square. Moreover, they were carrying banners. When I had the opportunity at a subsequent demo, I asked their leader how this was consistent with their claim of Torah observance. He gave a truly remarkable response. He said they were allowed to carry banners in ‘that special place’ on Shabbat. I was not aware that Trafalgar Square had some special dispensation for breaching Shabbat.


Moreover, Richard Millett has reported on their attendance at an anti-Israel conference on a Saturday morning in London (another breach of Shabbat that no orthodox Jew would consider):
This induced a rant .. from Rabbi Yisroel Dovid Weiss of the Neturei Karta. Farcically, Weiss refused to use the microphone as it was Shabbat although he was freely producing business cards from his satchel.
I therefore do not believe these guys are real Jews in any sense. They are a bunch of publicity-seeking, Iranian funded, frauds.

BBC News yet again casts Palestinian terrorists as victims


Here is a screenshot of the BBC tweet:



And remember that the families of those three terrorists will now become wealthy from payments made by the Palestinian Authority funded by western taxpayers.

Also when the media updates its 'death scorecards' to prove that Israelis are the real aggressors this one will add three Palestinian civilian deaths to one Israeli military death.

p.s. Of course the story only appears on the BBC Middle East News online. It has otherwise been more or less completely ignored outside of Israel.
