United Nations replaces Valentine's Day with Palestine's Day*


In a surprise move today the United Nations announced that 14 February is no longer to be known as Valentine's Day, and instead will be renamed as Palestine's Day. The move came in response to the ongoing claims - now accepted as the truth - that 14 February was celebrated as Palestine Independence Day by Muslim Arabs every year for 5000 years until 1948 when the Zionists deviously invented 'Valentine's Day' to divert world opinion away from their suppression of Palestinian Muslims.

The United Nations ruling was unanimously approved by all 59 Muslim nations. The ruling, which is is now enshrined as international law (and so cannot be challenged) contains the following points of explanation: 
  • It is totally unacceptable that there should be a day in the year when people are encouraged to express their love for people other than the Palestinians. Everybody must understand that the Palestinian people must be the focus for everybody's attention for 365 days of the year - not just 364.
  • Palestine's Day will provide all progressive people in the world with the opportunity and incentive to express their deep love for the Palestinian people by sending cards, tweets and Facebook messages like "Death to Israel and all Zionists", "Destroy the apartheid state of Israel", "Zionism is fascism"
  • Just as on Valentine's Day - when people not sending cards to their partners are exposed as heartless and unloving - anybody who refuses to send a Palestine's Day card will be exposed as a Zionist fascist to be hounded and ridiculed. 
  • Just as on Valentine's Day Muslims are not obliged to participate, although it is recommended that they donate extra charity on this day to Hamas and Hezbollah.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (already celebrating the 12th anniversary of his 4-year term of office) was ecstatic saying
 "When the Zionists stole Palestine they also stole the historic Palestine Day. Just as there had been unbroken Arab Muslim rule in Palestine for over 5000 years until 1948 so too had there been an annual world Arab Palestine Day on 14 February for the same period. The Zionists stole that too"
Former President Obama welcomed the UN decision saying
"Valentine's Day is by definition anti-Islamic and especially anti-Palestinian.  A historic wrong has been put right. Moreover, this now means I know longer have to bother with all the hassle of getting a Valentine's card and gift for Michelle".
* Satire. But the 'Palestinians' have hijacked everything else so why not this?

The Leftist/Islamist alliance

Some people were surprised at the extent to which Leftists and Islamists came together to spearhead the anti-Trump rallies. I'm also scratching my head to figure out what they might possibly have in common.....

The Board of Deputies increasingly obsessed about 'fighting Islamophobia"



Despite its stated objective of protecting the interests of British Jews, the BoD has been falling over itself in desperation to prove that its most important objective is to 'combat Islamophobia'. Not content with its ludicrous decision to issue a strong condemnation of President Trump over his immigration vetting (what the hell has this got to do with British Jews?), and its support for the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust's trivializing of the Holocaust, check out this sickening piece of brown-nosing that the BoD presented in writing to Parliament.

A note to all members of synagogues: You can save yourselves £30 per year by not paying the "Board of Deputies Levy"on your membership bills. It is a voluntary contribution.

Board of Deputies spends three times as much on pandering to radical Islam as it does on combating anti-Semitism

At least this time those seeking Israel's destruction paid the Jewish Chronicle for their advert


When I first saw the anti-Israel advert my reaction was to wonder whether the Jewish Chronicle would also consider running adverts asking for money to fund Hamas.... then I remembered they already actually did this in 2014.

Most interestingly Daphne Anson's article includes information from one of the people involved in the advert revealing that they had first tried to place the advert in the Jewish News, but they refused to take it 'on political grounds'. The Jewish Chronicle, on the other hand, was more than happy to host the advert. At least on this occasion the Jewish Chronicle got money for hosting the advert. The 'Hamas' ad in 2014 was placed courtesy of the Jewish Chronicle owners for free.

And, incidentally, the three groups named as being behind the advert are: Jews for Justice for Palestinians, Independent Jewish Voices, and Jewish Socialists. All reject Israel as a Jewish State.

How one lazy sentence in a 'pro-Israel' report propagates anti-Israel lies

This appeared on Page 2 of the Daily Express on 2 Feb in an article headlined "Farage brands Khan 'hypocrite over travel ban" that described how Nigel Farage called out the London Mayor for hosting ambassadors from Muslim countries that ban Israelis, while condemning Trump for 'banning' people from Muslim countries.

While far more offensive stuff against Israel is written and said every day by the BBC, Guardian, NY Times, etc this is troubling because of its sheer banality and that it shows the extent to which the anti-Israel narrative - based on a tissue of lies - has become so engrained in popular language that it is just casually trotted out even by people who are nominally 'on our side'. The incessantly repeated  lie "Israel mistreats the Palestinians", much like the lie "Jerusalem and the West Bank is Palestinian land illegally occupied by Israel", have become tautological 'facts' simply because not enough people called out the lie.

But it is quite an achievement to unintentionally squeeze so much bullshit  into such a short sentence. The highlighted text implies that these countries - which have some of the worst human rights records in the world - ban Israelis as some kind of 'humanitarian protest' on behalf of 'Palestinians'. That is as lazy and ignorant journalism as you could imagine. The word ‘Palestinian’ was not even used to refer to Arabs until 1965 - 17 years after these countries started their racist ban.

Even when writing reports that are nominally sympathetic to Israel, main stream media reporters accept without question the standard anti-Israel lies and propaganda, while totally ignoring the real crimes of Arab countries - including the horrific abuse of their Palestinian residents.
