❗️Only an #antisemite would use the @TheIHRA Definition of Antisemitism - the origins lie in the #EUMC - would concoct a #malicious #malevolent #libel that it's responsible for human rights harm!❗️

@FranceskAlbs wants #antisemites to get away with #antisemitism by blaming #Jews
The Fundamental Rights Agency (FRA) surveyed Jewish Europeans & showed that the examples in the definition reflect what the vast majority perceives as antisemitic.

What's the problem? @FranceskAlbs doesn't want any opinion from the very people who experience #JewHatred daily!
The Commission considered the victims' perspective as an important starting point in tackling all forms of racism & hatred.
Thus, @FranceskAlbs wants to #EXCLUDE Jews altogether while defining the meaning of #antisemitism or #JewHatred.

Today marks the first anniversary of the Russia-Ukraine #cyberwar that killed <checks Microsoft's & Mandiant's reports> no one.

Let's go over last year's mass cyberwar #panic. We'll begin with one of the earliest calls to #boycott @Kaspersky:
There was an immediate feeling that everyone must cancel all Kaspersky subscriptions, as if customers -- especially corporate clients -- had a competitor's product waiting in the wings to replace it in some trivial fashion:
Likewise, there was an immediate plea to [translated] "remove Kaspersky from your PC. Now. Immediately." Again, as if customers -- especially corporate clients -- could do it trivially and without serious consequences:

For those who celebrating @carolecadwalla's wonderful #libel victory who now want an overhaul of libel law to prevent journalists being bullied in this way, I have good news. A potentially very useful, if not quite complete, solution is ready and waiting. 1/12
Leveson proposed, and in 2013 Parliament endorsed in law, an arrangement to protect news publishers from 'chilling' by wealthy litigants. Why is it not in force? Because the newspaper corporations didn't like it and the Conservative government shelved it at their behest. 2/12
To be clear, the Leveson arrangement, which involved pushing litigants into low-cost arbitration rather than expensive court proceedings, would not have protected @carolecadwalla in her case. But it would shield any journalist writing for a participating newspaper/website. 3/12

I have been receiving psychic attacks from John Edward and another self-identified vampires today. I haven't been writing about the psychic attacks I have been receiving lately on my substack website but I plan on doing that soon.
I don't have to stalk John Edward and his energy worker Buddy from Pennsylvania that put a false charge of stalking on me.
But I do have a first amendment right to write about the psychic attacks that I'm receiving energetically from John Edward and any other vampire.
If John Edward thinks that he can keep on targeting me energetically then let him keep thinking that I'm still going to take him to federal court and civilly sue him and his energy worker buddy from Pennsylvania that put the false charge of stalking on me.
I have no problem

@thetimes pays £30,000 libel damages to former Guantanamo detainee, @Moazzam_Begg & @UK_CAGE and issues apology for linking them to Reading suspected terror attack #Defamation #Libel #TheTimes
They were represented by our @ZillRah7 and Counsel, Mark Henderson from @DoughtyStreet. Zillur said: “We are delighted by this outcome... £30,000 is a substantial sum of damages for an article that was online for less than 24hrs. It exemplifies the gravity of the allegations...”
Mr Begg, of CAGE said: “This appears to be a case of Times editors sexing up its journalist’s story to create a false link between a Muslim grassroots advocacy group & a suspected terrorist attack... this settlement serves as a reminder to others that the truth is non-negotiable”

In initial interview before reaching ambulance, @MsNazContractor, playing the Muslim councilwoman whom Detective Carisi (@PeterScanavino) has already informed us is famous for anti-Semitic remarks, tells him & Detective Rollins (@KelliGiddish) that "those people" are responsible
for her assault. Thus, she confirms her antisemitism. The councilwoman is an barely concealed stand-in for Ilhan Omar, a representative to the US House of Representatives from Minnesota's 5th District. @nbcsvu @SVUWritersRoom
Min 0458: A reporter asks Chief Dodds (@petergallagher): "Councilwoman Nasar is an on-the-record anti-Semite. Can you comment?" Chief Dodds doesn't contradict the reporter's assertion, thus implicitly confirming it.
