Today I read this article goo.gl/uYwFm8 & wondered what had become of James Bundy. He remains a member of the #Tory party with a interest in National Identity goo.gl/AbwRad We have seen the rise of identity politics in the #USA & #Europe
The rise of right wing populism in politics resulted in this latest episode goo.gl/PL1zjW Strange is not then when Tories are in power division and hate grows.
Back to the article on Bundy and #Antisemitism I wonder if @TracyAnnO feels that it was appropriate for someone who had made antisemitic comments to be reinstated in the #Tory party? @shaunjlawson @simonmaginn @upsadaizy

1) Hey @Twitter @jack I thought it was a violation of Twitter rules to create other accounts in the event of an account by @TwitterSupport . There seems to be some double standard that you abide by letting these multi account trolls continue to blatantly 'spit' in your face. 👇
2) On December 18, @TwitterSupport locked @FreePal72428841 for an abusive tweet after which the owner of that account @RWTTROBMARTINEZ created @Robbie08809587 in direct violation of @Twitter rules for account lockouts. These accounts are operated by the same person 👇
3) Everyone who engages Rob aka @FreePal72428841 aka @Robbie08809587 knows she is the same person. Running multiple accounts for abusive purposes is a violation of @Twitter rules and this person is engaging in hateful and antisemitic behavior on both of these accounts 👇

5 days ago: "A group of teenage black males violently assaulted a 19-year-old Jewish man". Ignored by local and national MSM.

Today: "A black man punched a Jewish man in the chest." Will this Brooklyn #AntiSemitism get ignored by the MSM too?

Challenging #antisemitism can lead to hysterical counter-accusations that others with racist views are happy to endorse. After encountering Charles Harding, a #Labour member in Liverpool, dismissing concerns about a/s on Facebook, I accepted his challenge to provide examples. /1
I didn't have to go far afield to find examples because, despite Charles's friends backing his view that antisemitism is just "made-up bullshit", "fake news", "propaganda", etc, his own timeline is in fact replete with #antisemitic posts. As indeed I pointed out to him ... /2
Charles Harding's posts present Jews as "criminals and liars ... afraid of being criticised" who "control the media", "poison your food", "create social unrest", "fund both sides in wars" and run a "shadow government". His sources include neo-Nazi and Holocaust denial sites. /3

Way too little, way too late

If you're a Jewish woman sickened and betrayed by the @womensmarch, join the amazing women of the @iwf. They'll be in DC Saturday as well, with ACTUAL open arms and ears and minds.
*Sickened by the #AntiSemitism

No mention of #AntiSemitism in this article

And yesterday, Bloomberg News gave a puff profile to the other anti-Semites of the Women's March

The MSM continues to ignore/excuse this rapidly growing cancer

@ShaunLawson is not being honest. @JeremyCorbyn was offered by the leader of the Israeli Labour Party to meet in Israel. He did not even respond. To his own sister party! This comment is utter nonsense. I am not surprised. He spouts much other drivel.
Now this silencing thing. Nonsense.

Of course you have the right to shout. But you have *no* right to pretend you represent the mainstream.

The Board of Deputies represents many opinions. You may even belong to organizations that elect representatives.

@ShaunLawson says it’s defamatory. I shall quote an honest man @stephenpollard on this: When they threaten you wth litigation they never sue.
This is typical far left. All gob and no trousers.
If you mean it, sue him. We’ll be happy to watch you lose.

THREAD 1. Since posting about #HolocaustMemorialDay , encouraging us to remember where hatred leads - #Srebrenica + #Holocaust genocides for example + standing up against #antisemitism #homophobia #Islamophobia #racism etc, I have been trolled
2. Who are these trolls? They are sick, narrow minded bigots of the Muslim faith (+ one Islamophobe). What have they been saying? Well I've been called: shabbos, House Muslim, House Arab, sellout, Zionist, shill for Israel + accused of attacking the right to free speech
3. Free speech and antisemitic speech are two different things. I reported this bigot because he is a bigot and Twitter clearly agreed with me. Free speech is not the right to promote hatred. I did call someone a nutjob I admit and got told I was demonising others

A PERSONAL TRIBUTE TO JAMAL KHASHOGGI IN HIS OWN WORDS.
How does Jamal Khashoggi hate Jews? Let me count the ways.
@IgnatiusPost @lawrence_wright @khanfarw @camcath @mulhim12 @chrislhayes @saudiarabia @UN @Maribel_FdezG @GoblinShop @KarenAsche @princesse_rasta @rbrary9
Not all of Jamal Khashoggi's #antisemitism has been deleted.
Jewish child: "My father told me your Arabs are murders and terrorists."
Palestinian child: "My father told me nothing. He was murdered by your father."
Jamal Khashoggi claims that for 2000 years, Jews forgot all about Jerusalem.

The hashtag #FirstAntisemiticExperience which I started a couple of days ago has shown me several things. This thread will pull together what I believe we can learn from it, and what conclusions we should draw from it.
Please follow me to get other insights into being a #Jew

First: thanks to the journalists who picked up on this #FirstAntiSemiticExperience - they’ve helped spread the hashtag. However I am not sure they understood it’s implications fully, it seems they missed that these encounters with #antisemitism happened years, decades ago!
2/15
This is a record therefore of #FirstAntisemiticExperience from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. My son teeeted one from about 2009. That may be the most recent one!!
Historic #antisemitism. But real nonetheless
So let’s examine what sorts of experience we had:

While her mf-er comment is worthy of scorn and shows how vile she is, don't forget that Rashida Tlaib supports the destruction of Israel, advocates for BDS, and proudly stands with Linda Sarsour, which is a nothing more than a big mother f--k you to Jews in America and Israel
Especially when even many of the pussy hats in the Women's March crowd are distancing themselves from Sarsour and her virulent #AntiSemitism, and fangirling of Louis Farrakhan

What's with @uklabour leader @jeremycorbyn & rabid antisemitic women? Corbyn was all over Palestine Live founder Elleanne Green's timeline + liked or commented on around thirty of her posts. Now there is Anna Elliott too. Exactly like Elleanne, Anna joined Labour just for Corbyn.
Anna is hard-core. Difficult to believe she can still be a member. She pushes Israel as ISIS & likes Gilad Atzmon. She shares David Duke, David Icke, Paul Eisen & articles from ultra racist site PoliticalVelCraft. She's living evidence that 'far-right' and 'far-left' hold hands.
Just like with Elleanne Green (who shared everything from far-left Conspiracy to far-right Nazi material), Jeremy Corbyn didn't accidentally stumble on *one* of Anna's posts, but rather seemed to have Anna's timeline set to 'speed-dial'.

[Thread] Based on recent discussions with @SamuelSokol, @TarikCyrilAmar, and @AuschwitzMuseum over the continued debates regarding the "naming" of concentration camps in Poland, I've decided it's time for a thread, b/c this is not about history but the present in Poland.
What has many Poles (and state-run museums) up in arms, is ANY connection of the word "Poland" with Holocaust sites (and more broadly behavior- hence the "correction" above.) They particularly rail against the term "Polish" death or concentration camps. edition.cnn.com/2018/02/01/eur…
The argument is that Poles did not establish or run these camps...which is absolutely correct. But the problem is, no one really thinks Poles built Auschwitz, etc. Sure, there are ignorant people out there or some students, but I defy you to find a scholar making this argument.

#LabourAntisemitism #KinderGentlerPolitics #CorbynsExcuse: “I’m Too Upset.”

@JeremyCorbyn, full of reasons why it can’t be #antisemitism cos he’s never to blame 4 his own actions. He’s Macavity, mystery cat, not there. Let’s review the others.
dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6… 1/7
This mural started the #LabourAntisemitism row off: he knew it was #antisemitic, but of course defended it. When challenged he says he didn’t look at it properly, didn’t see the a/s.

Remember, @JeremyCorbyn’s fans vaunt his antiracist credentials. 2/7

The wreath laying. Obviously not on the menorial he claimed. @JeremyCorbyn said he was present but not involved. Fortunately the Tunisians has an official phorographer.

While we're talking about the #WomensMarch #Antisemitism controversy, I want to remind everyone: it is entirely possible to believe that Israel is engaging in a genocidal war against the Palestinian people and NOT be an antisemite.
The conflation of the rejection of Zionism with antisemitism is nonsense. You can be a big old Jew, like me, and reject Right Wing Zionism like that espoused by Netanyahu, Sheldon Adelson and the like. You can be a big old Jew, like me, and reject the violent occupation.
You can be a big old Jew, like my dad and other traditional liberals (like Obama!), and believe wholeheartedly in the Zionist project - the creation of a Jewish State in what is now Israel - and still despise the Occupation, and work towards a Two State solution.

The fallout from @JeremyCorbyn’s #StupidWoman comments may appear symbolic, but has far-reaching implications.
#Corbyn chose #CorbynLies over truth. All he needed to do was say sorry for the cock-up. The words were not actually important. It was a tetchy throw-away remark. 1/8
@JeremyCorbyn has carefully built a (false) image based on his integrity, his kindness, gentle politics, caring. So he has tried to defend himself by denying the obvious - includibg outrageous tweets by @AaronBastani quoting a discredited lip-reader. 2/8
So he decided to die on this hill. He said something else. Nobody believes him.
@jeremyCorbyn and his #NotACult supporters all bleat that he’s not lying but the world knows how false this is. And he’s busy trying to gaslight women into believing him: very far Left behaviour.

.@CAIRNational Hypocrite, Wilfredo Amr Ruiz (@AnalistaInter), Linked to Group Championing White Supremacist David Duke frontpagemag.com/fpm/272169/cai…
Ruiz “founded the chapters of Puerto Rico and Connecticut of The American Muslim Association of North America (AMANA)” and is “currently acting as its legal advisor.” According to AMANA, Ruiz has been the Director of its Puerto Rico chapter.
Ruiz has also been the Executive Director of AMANA’s sister charity, American Muslims for Emergency and Relief (AMER).

Outside of its Islamist existence, AMANA and its President, Sofian Zakkout, are notorious for championing white supremacist leader David Duke.

Wow 😮 Two more poorly-informed public officials fall for the false propaganda of a fringe, radical (anti Jewish) group working to demonize #Israel 🇮🇱 & defame, smear the @ADL_National 😩 ☹️ #shameful
FYI @SethAMandel @LegInsurrection @jonathans_tobin @acandidworld
@ADL_National @SethAMandel @LegInsurrection @jonathans_tobin @acandidworld I’ve written extensively about the JVP-spearheaded #DeadlyExchange campaign which blames 🇮🇱 & American 🇺🇸 Jewish orgs for deliberately conspiring to cause harm to minorities in US inner cities. This isn’t legitimate criticism of Israel. It’s straight up #antisemitism 😩 1/
@ADL_National @SethAMandel @LegInsurrection @jonathans_tobin @acandidworld After convincing the Durham City Council to shut down any future exchange between its police 👮 department w/counterparts in 🇮🇱 (& only Israel), JVP and allies have been working 24/7 for their next big municipal win. Now they have two ☹️2/

Some people do really well at fighting antisemitism in a very safe way that challenges few and achieves even less. Let's face it, it's a frightening thing to do not least because of the enormity of the hate directed at Jews.
#antisemitism
2/7 The real task though lies in being brave enough to take risks and challenge people who might not thank you for it; friends, colleagues, political associates - even family.
3/7 This doesn't mean risking personal safety, but enabling people to stay inside their comfort zones by only challenging the ideas you know they disagree with isn't an option if we really want to get anywhere.

This is especially weird as @CNN has been promoting their special report "The State of Hate: The Rise of #AntiSemitism in America” all day

4:00PM ET: Just checked again, and there’s still no stories about Mohammed Mohammed in Los Angeles on CNN.com
And if the national MSM has failed you as well
