A message to those Jews who are desperate to remove Trump ...

 ...unless you hate Israel, and are keen to welcome socialism to the USA, then you are a useful idiot.

Even if you have no opinion on Israel at all and are not a socialist, then you need to realise that Trump is the only person who can stand against the globalist/socialst "Great Reset":

A case study in hypocrisy : criticism of Soros against criticism of Abramovich

The people now criticising Abramovich - a proud Jew for investing in Israel (where he is now a citizen) are the very same people who say that anybody who criticizes atheist ‘Jew’ Soros for funding anti-Israel organizations is ‘antisemitic’.

Moreover, David Collier has done a fine expose of the Abramovich 'story'. It really is driven by the usual antisemitic, anti-Israel narrative and lies. Why is the well-funded Board of Deputies not doing this kind of research? Oh of course they are among those who call criticism of Soros "dog-whislte antisemitism":

Cancel culture: antisemitism is the acceptable for of racism

The cultural Marxists are busy 'cancelling' every historical writer who they perceive was in any way associated with racism. Yet the same people are today celebrating 'Roald Dahl Day', with many new books about his works and new initiatives to get children's to read his books. Being openly and proudly antisemitic is apparently just fine (note: I don't believe any writers should be 'cancelled' - just pointing out the hypocrisy).

The Black Lives Matter movement: proud Marxists but now trying to cover up their antisemitism

Updated 28 June 2020 (Note the tweet below from the official BLM UK and the way BLM Oxford advertise their event)

Tweet from BLM UK today

BLM Oxford use the same antisemitic image Corbyn was called out for to advertise their event 27/6/20

The fact that Black Lives Matter is a Marxist organization which seeks to defund the police and abolish capitalism can be seen by its own policy statements and adverts as well as the words of its leaders.  In the UK these aims are clearly stated on their gofundme page which today has amassed over a million pounds in less than a month (see screenshot below).

However, BLM is starting to become rather more coy about its deep rooted antisemitism.

When the BLM movement first came to prominence in the USA in 2014 its antisemitism was so blatant that even extreme leftist Jews and Jewish organizations called it out - see for example, this Ha'artetz article: Black Lives Matter Endorses BDS: Israel Is 'Apartheid State'. 

The roots of BLM antisemitism were also well documented in articles such as Where does Black Lives Matter antisemitism come from?

However, while the movement's leaders and aims have not changed, because they have recently become the darlings of the main stream media and social media organizations (including Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Wikipedia) a concerted attempt has been made to suppress or erase all evidence of BLM's current and past record of antisemitism. A particular case in point is their 2016 policy platform section titled “Invest/Divest”. This was the document that managed to upset even Ha'artez. It was part of a policy drafted by more than 50 organizations affiliated with the BLM movement (known as the Movement for Black Lives). It expressed support for the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and called Israel an “apartheid state,”  stating that the United States, through military support for Israel, is complicit in the “genocide taking place against the Palestinian people.”

The orginal link to that document no longer works (only a very heavily edited version of the orginal 'Vision' document can be found here).  The "Invest/Divest" section of the Movement for Black Lives website  contains a summary of the orginal statement with all references to specific international issues removed. However, there are links to several more detailed statements including this one containing several of the original antisemitic libels  (below is a screen shot of some of the text before they remove this too).


What BLM cannot cover up is the fact that their antisemitism has been very much to the fore in the recent protests. For example, Daniel Greenfield has documented the antisemitic attacks by BLM 'protesters' in America in June 2020:
A recent article by Karen Harradine highlights how the BLM antisemitism has also been evident in protests in the UK.  In Paris the BLM protestors chanted "Dirty Jews" and "Jewish whores"

Meet Stephen Reicher: The 'independent scientist' on the Government SAGE committee

Stephen Reicher is the so-called "independent scientist" on the Government’s SAGE committee who has been the most prominent in the campaign against Cummings and Boris Johnson. In fact, he is not a scientist at all. He is a social psychology professor. And, as for his 'independence', here he is in his own words on Twitter (screenshot in case he takes it all down). First, regarding Boris and Cummings:

When he uses his credentials  "as a Jew" to spread anti-Israel propaganda and demand  it should be boycotted, he seems to rely on antisemites for his material:

As you would expect he is a big fan of Corbyn

And of course he has an obsessive hatred of Donald Trump

There's plenty more on his twitter feed @ReicherStephen.
 Reicher is by no means unusual of the Government's 'scientific/academic' advisors. SAGE is completely dominated by people with exactly the same worldview.

Exposing the idiocy of responses to the Apartheid State slur and other lies about Israel

Imagine the following scenario:
A violent psychopath Paul - who lives in a different part of the country far away from your family -  has just been convicted of committing multiple murders and rapes (including child rape) in his local area in the last 2 years.

Your 95-year-old Grandma Sadie has been severely disabled and in a care home (close to where you live) that she has not left in the last 10 years. She cannot walk and suffers from dementia.

The psychopath - who has never met or had any contact with any of your family - suddenly declares that the person who committed all the recent crimes of which he has been convicted is your Grandma Sadie. He offers no reasons why he has singled out Grandma Sadie, and from prison he convinces all the other murderers and rapists to claim that Grandma Sadie also committed all the crimes for which they were convicted. They not only continually repeat the allegations, but also demand that Grandma Sadie must be removed from the care home and that you (and your family) must lose their jobs because you have been supporting her for many years.
Imagine if, instead of putting the focus on the murderers making the ludicrous allegations, your response is along the lines of the following:
"First of all, it is wrong to blame me or the rest of my family for Grandma's actions. I dispute the fact that she is a mass murdering rapist, because she has often been quite kind. However, we accept that Grandma can be quite grumpy and difficult at times - such as when she was rude once to the lady who brought her cold tea. Obviously every argument has two sides, and we accept that Paul and others have a legitimate right to believe Grandma is a mass murdering rapist. Indeed, they have every right to hold public meetings and demonstrations demanding Grandma be brought to justice, and as long as we have a right to reply we are happy to discuss the issue with them. But the claims also give me and my family a bad name. So, even though it is provably impossible that Grandma could have committed any crime, we are sufficiently concerned about the seriousness of the allegations that we will now stop all financial support to Grandma Sadie as long as I and other family members are allowed to keep our jobs" 
While this seems ridiculous, simply replace:
  • psychopath Paul with the murderous psychopaths and child killers of Hamas and the PLO
  • Paul's prisoner friends with other murderous Middle East tyrants and their vicious antisemitic supporters who dominate left-wing politics around the world
  • the murder/rape accusations against Grandma Sadie with the "apartheid state" accusations against Israel (and other lies like "Israel is a colonial endeavour", "Israel murders Palestinian children" etc.)
Then the response is exactly analogous to the response of mainstream diaspora Jews.

Obsession with virtue-signalling to enemies of the Jewish people was the main factor in the demise of the Jewish Chronicle

So the Jewish Chronicle - and the Jewish News with which it was merging - are to be liquidated. Obviously, the coronavirus is being blamed as the reason for its demise, but this simply speeded the inevitable. I feel extremely sorry for those members of staff losing jobs who were not responsible for the increasingly leftist  and ambivalent stance to Israel that both newspapers had taken in the last 15 years.  Unfortunately, the goons who took over management and editorial control are ultimately the ones to blame for this outcome and the loss of jobs.

If the JC hadn’t started supporting the unelected PLO over the elected Israeli government, or pimping for terrorists committed to Israel’s destruction at the very time they were targeting Israeli cities with hundreds of rockets a day, then perhaps British Jews would not have stopped buying it. Or maybe they would have retained more readers had they not continually given advertising and editorial space to deadly enemies of the Jewish State - under the pretext of  'the need for balance'** -  while at the same time viciously attacking pro-Israel Jews and especially pro-Israel non-Jews without giving them any right to reply. But most of all, it seems that the continual and obsessive virtue-signalling with 'Islamophobia'  and 'interfaith relations' were not of particularly compelling interest for British Jews; especially when the exact same leftist nonsense can be read for free in the Guardian and BBC online. The elitists in editorial control (and the same goes for those who lead the Board of Deputies, CST and other mainstream Jewish organisations) are delusional in thinking that the bubble in which they operate is any any way representative of the bulk of British Jewry and they lost sight of the fact that their purpose was to serve the British Jewish community and not the British Muslim community. Did they really think that getting approval from creeps like Fiyaz Mughal, Baroness Warsi and Sadiq Khan was going to lead to British Muslims buying the JC?

The JC and Jewish News failed the British Jewish community in so many ways. In addition to all of the above, they could have campaigned to stop British taxpayer funding going to Palestinian terrorists - it would have been popular and effective - but they never did. They could have been at the forefront in confronting the anti-Zionist lies that have driven almost all antisemitism in the UK in the last 15 years. But they refused to do so, pandering instead to the very community which was most prominent in pushing those lies, and even playing into this antisemitsm with their continual message of "Israel does bad things but it's not the fault of British Jews...". 

For evidence of all of the above see the following links (up until a couple of years ago I regularly blogged about the JC and Jewish News move to the left, but in the end I just could not stomach reading them) which are just a small subset of the role of shame:
**It's a bit like demanding that the editor of Spurs Monthly must always include articles about Arsenal and Chelsea, as well as articles written by West Ham supporters....

Palestinian 'consistency' ....

So the Palestinian Authority has slammed Israel for daring to close mosques during the coronavirus crisis - while at the very same time condemning Hamas for NOT closing mosques.

 Just in case anybody was surprised by this apparent 'inconsistency' you should not be. It's how they operate....

Tim Burton's book and the question it raises about the Board of Deputies and CST's continued collaboration with Tell Mama

Too few people know that in the UK men and women have been imprisoned simply for posting tweets or messages that are critical of radical Islam or its supporters. One of those imprisoned was Tim Burton. He had dared challenge the Tell Mama organization and its highly litigious and sensitive leader Fiyaz Mughal (Tell Mama is the organization that continues to receive massive government support to report on 'Islamophobic attacks' even though it was previously found to be exagerrating them; and Mughal also sued a pro-Israel Jewish woman for criticizing Tell Mama).  I urge every member of the UK Jewish community to read Tim's book about his case and then ask their 'leaders' at the Board of Deputies and CST how they can possibly continue to collaborate closely with Tell Mama.

Tim Burton correctly describes himself as a 'political prisoner' because he was imprisoned for sending some obviously sarcastic emails to Tell Mama, which Mughal claimed were somehow 'personally threatening'. That such a case was ever brought by the CPS - and ended up in a Crown Court trial and a 3-month prison sentence - is a stain on the British judicial system. What happened to Burton was terrible for him personally, yet he tells his story with great humour.

I was going to do a detailed review of the book as I assumed nobody in the community had read it, but in fact a very good review and links to a lot of other related material is already available on the website.

So I will just note some things I got from the book that are not mentioned in that review:
  • Possibly out of fear of yet further prison time, Burton never actually mentions either Fiyaz Mughal or Tell Mama by name anywhere in the book.  He refers to them respectively as "Fizzy Mendacious" and "Grievance Mongers UK" throughout.
  • The 'mendacious' relates to Burton's very well publicised first trial where he was accused of a hate crime for calling Mughal a "mendacious grievance mongering taqiyya artist". The key thing is that at his first trial he had a competent laywer and also a very good expert witness to explain the concept of 'taqiyya'. He was found not guilty. However, things were different for the second trial in which he was accused of threatening behaviour for sending some obviously joke/sarcastic emails to Tell Mama. Not only did he have an appallingly incompetent barrister, but he was unable to call on the same expert 'taqiyya' witness because that witness had died since the first trial. Although Burton finally managed to get another expert witness, the barrister insisted that the witness should not be called at all. Hence, there was nobody to challenge the prosecution 'expert' on Islam (an expert who should probably not have been allowed because he failed to declare a conflict of interest - a matter which is the basis for Burton's claim of a mistrial).
  • In addition to the story of his trial and imprisonment the book also contains  a compendium of relevant previous articles Burton has written on Islam and how the notion of 'Islamophobia' is used to close down free speech.

The threat of right-wing extremism

The Board of Deputies, CST and many Muslim organizations have been mounting an increasingly hysterical campaign to highlight the threat of right-wing extremists to Jews, arguing that this threat is at least as serious as that posed by Islamic and/or leftist antisemites.Oh wait, what's this .....

This is what the Board of Deputies are pushing at the moment (they have never once convened a meeting to discuss Islamic antisemitism):
