So the great march to Jerusalem turned into a great standstill. the likes of Ben White who write vigoriously for the Guardians and other fashionista publications spoke about the beginning of waves of Palestinian non-violent protest entering the public lexicon making it impossible for Israel to maintain its status quo. Well we know that’s all hype and bullshit and guess what, the lack of Arabs participating is evident of the real big secret of the Middle East. When push comes to shove, the Arabs care more about getting rid of their own corrupt leaders than being told to march to bloody al quds and beyond. And what about those hundreds of thousands of international activists where were they? well unless the hard-core one’s based in Ramallah or Gaza were readily available, the amazing Israeli security dealt them exactly what any sane / sensible nation should do quickly dispatch them from the airport. (no this is isn’t  about infringing human rights dear reader its bloody sanity)plus just how many of them in first place willing to go..? also how ironic those thickskulls Neteuri Karta Rabbis were attacked by rabid Arabs on the borders in Jordan, just goes to show no-matter how much anti-zionist jews want to join the party, Arab resentment and anti-Semitism will always prevail. sweet justice for those prats.`

Most seasoned observers both left and right recognize Christians have a hard time to express themselves openly within Islamic countries. The quite brilliant Tom Gross gives countless examples on his site. But this fact-on-the-ground doesn’t bold well for Arabist and Palestinian apologists who find any means to curtail and discourage negative reports from Palestinian territories about the growing threats to Palestinian Christians living here. Stuart Littlewood who writes for Redress http://www.redress.cc/palestine#scrooge explained that he was so dissatisfied with the Guardians report on Hamas crackdown on Christmas, he felt it was hurting the Palestinian cause so contacted her directly. Now correct me if I m wrong most if not all Israel activists wouldn’t use that moralizing tone despite angry retorts by Pro-Israel feelings, its if “how dare the Guardian ever suggest the wonderful Palestinians could possibility think of such a thing”.. Guardian article here: http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/23/gaza-christians-hamas-cancelled-christmas

Littlewood says, “Is Hamas being beastly to Gaza’s Christians? Has Phoebe Greenwood got her story straight? I wrote to her at the Guardian, pointing out that revelations of this kind in the popular British press undo the hard work activists put in to help the Palestinian cause. Could she please throw more light onto it? I’ve had no reply. I’m in England and unable to contact Hamas. Phoebe Greenwood is on the spot. Shouldn’t someone from Haniyeh’s office be given a chance to comment?”

Look it’s this sanctimonious moralistic conviction crap of “always being in the right” and bloody ignorant of  facts-on-the-ground which has always fascinated me about the Pro-Palestinian cause. Their agenda is so-fanatically hatred towards Israel that they will change day into night to suit how and how others should see the conflict.

Critically,  this is the main difference between  (supporters of Israel) and  how they  see it.  Within in the Jewish world we have the capacity of debate and self inquiry – sometimes to our detriment.  Again the proof is so overly abundant in our culture its very obvious for every one to see, if not read the bloody JC letter page for the past  ten years and YOU’LL see  for differing opinions (do it I dare ya Stuart!!).  I do think in the end ,  fanatics like Stuart will always lose because the very people they’re trying to win over and hoodwink will eventually bore and suss them out. The fact he says Greenwood didn’t bite to his charges of “unfairness” is indicative of a growing trend i notice since the beeb finally admitted coverage of being too keen of taking the Palestinian view and slap down for well respected Jeremy Bowen – a very unusual admission indeed.  BBC and middle east shtick  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criticism_of_the_BBC

For links on Palestinian Christians and yes even-handed accounts look here: http://thinkingoutsidetheblog.blogspot.com/2011/08/how-are-christians-living-in.html Yes there’s even criticism of Israel as it should be when talking about democracies.

But really do you own research as I genuine believe  people should find out the  truth for themselves, something the likes of Stuart Littlewood cannot ever comprehend! Stuart likes to write moralistic  blackmailing letters because like all supporters of Palestinian cause it has become very personal and a sick obsession. He cannot see dark from light and will never allow himself to create a space for criticism despite the overwhelming evidence.

Palestinians and their supporters want everything, we know this to be true, study the official maps and symbols of their respected Government institutions and UN-sponsored UNRWA , you can see the whole country filled in with the flag of Palestine. They want it all, we now this, every Israeli knows this, Knesset members all this, the diplomatic community knows this, journalist deep down knows and so do Arab Politicians, but we continue the game of the ‘peace process’ as if no-body knows this. Melaine Phillips in her excellent cause célèbre on the Western myth-making of Mahmoud Abbas, (I personally like to call him by his proper name Abu Mazen / Mahmoud Abbas seems too user friendly) Says: http://standpointmag.co.uk/node/4113/full

To Western eyes Abbas, the Fatah-backed President of the Palestinian Authority, is a moderate. It is, however, simply astounding that he should be viewed in this way. It is even more astounding that Western liberals should endorse him and give him a free pass for his behaviour.

Both he and the Palestinian establishment he controls repeatedly say they will never accept Israel as a Jewish state. So his aim remains the destruction of Israel. He and his people repeatedly say that not one Jew would be allowed to live in Palestine. Such a state would therefore be a racist entity ethnically cleansed of Jews.

Crucially she remind us about his doublespeak:

Once again, he speaks out of both sides of his mouth in English and Arabic. In a recent interview with Israeli TV, he condemned the Palestinians’ naming of a square after Dalal Mughrabi, the terrorist who perpetrated an atrocity in 1978 when nearly 40 Israeli civilians were burned alive in a hijacked bus.

However, when speaking to Palestinians in 2010, Abbas said: “Of course we want to name a square after her…We carried out a military action. Can I then later renounce all that we have done?”

Its easy for Abu Mazen to operate in world which chooses to turn a blind eye to facts on the ground, however when it goes against especially by the forces who should be sympathetic they tend to go ballistic as if how dare you even question our version of reality. The Jewish Chronicle reports: The broadcast regulator, Ofcom, has rejected a complaint of unfairness made by chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat against the Al Jazeera news channel. http://www.thejc.com/news/uk-news/56227/ofcom-tells-erekat-al-jazeera-was-fair

Saed Erekat can’t  handle the truth, and when exposed by one of their own supposedly friendlier broadcasters gives the story even more semblance of truth. The main crux of his ‘broiges’ is a comment he made by the release by Wikileaks of the now dead news story revolving around the  Palestine Papers, which probably portrayed the duplicity and double speak of Palestine diplomacy than looking for holes in the Israeli camp.

“Dr Erekat said a comment allegedly made by him during the negotiations, which referred to an offer to the Israelis of “the biggest Yerushalem [sic] in history”, had been “inaccurately attributed to him” and that Al Jazeera had not verified the quote prior to broadcasting it.”

I always LOVE seeing the old PLO guard backtrack and have to resort to meaningless empty  fighting talk.

OH Boo ho Dr Erekat it’s not fair he cries. only because your not-fair answer to everything will overlap with  the truth eventually  – so gotcha!!!!

Just before Yom Kippur it seems a group of Jews defaced and sprayed graffiti on Muslim and christian graves.  This is wrong of course.

However if you scroll down the report by CNN right at the end it says on Wednesday a Jewish Religious site ” Joseph’s Tomb ” was also defaced.  in fact swastikas and graffiti sprayed on the walls.  http://edition.cnn.com/2011/10/08/world/meast/israel-graves-vandalized/index.html?hpt=hp_t2http://www.google.co.uk/
CNN says “It is unclear when the graffiti was left there. The site is under Palestinian Authority rule, and Jews visit every couple of months to pray.”

This disclaimer by CNN saying its unclear is bullshit; as everyone knows in Israel this is a scared spot and regularly visited daily. It is highly likely VERY DAMN LIKELY any Swastika’s would have been alerted immediately to the police so therefore must have happened on  Wednesday , Tuesday the earliest at best. So how come CNN didn’t lead the story with this fact? surely a holy Jewish tomb spray painted with Nazi slogans by Palestinians is the equivalent and more dare I say don’t you think? unfortunately not when in the context of middle east reporting by the usual bunch of moronic middle-class and guardian influenced-types journalists who will always lead with the Palestinian narrative. this guys is the only story in town i m afraid..

The irony of ironies for us sane people who moan about this daily is that we still have to listen to all those nutjobs Anti-Zonists who continually protest the BBC and other broadcasters, who also write stupid letters to the Guardian and  accuse everyone and everybody for carrying the official Israel government line. Oh if only that was the case, if only. now grow up and smell the damn coffee.

CNN’s decision to lead with Palestinian gravestone s and not a Jewish Holy relic is perfect example of how and why you are completely wrong!

The story like soo many others since the 2nd Intifadeh exposes how foreign journalists (intoxicated with their unlimited access and movements  in a complex ongoing and intractable conflict) continue to frame and tell the story from the Palestinian side.  It  has all the elements; Zionist racists; police who want investigate attacks on the poor Palestinians; Zero respect for Arab population. All the issues eager journalists based in Israel want to portray and oppose especially when trained and educated in liberal institution who gear them to despise the mechanics of the State of Israel as a student.

The only hope for us when faced with so many journalists and broadcasters who want to tell the conflict through a particular one-sided lens is to catch them out. the only way to do this is to  i am afraid , analyze and contextualize every story and challenge every fact.  long laborious painful work and the rewards are not great and when published  who will bother to read it?  JustJournalism http://justjournalism.com/ has found out to their disaste (JJ are  a leading UK Israel Media monitoring organization but due to lack of funding they are now no-longer on the scene)

So is their any  hope? well I ve always thought people who tend to hate Israel are an irrational lot and remind me of political Islamists, and let me go a bit further on this line.. Haters of Israel tend to go over the top all the time with their accusations and wagging fingers seeping into an over-confidence. Islamists for example when at the brink of winning over some sectors of the Western world  pointing out the corruptions of Western thought and capitalism will suddenly  revert back into  intolerance mode,  totally forgetting who they’re talking to as they become too comfortable. i believe the left when it comes to Israel make the same mistakes and we can catch them out… CNN, like a over-rabid Islamist hater of Israel slipped up right at the end of this story. they thought by adding the bit about Joseph’s tomb maybe they gave the story some kind of balance but instead revealed the thought processes and attitudes pervading Western Journalists and their agenda. Western journalists don’t have the guts and temerity to reverse this trend so we need to empower the audience and embarrass journalists and make them aware that we know. Like I said earlier in my piece the attack on the tomb is a far greater story in terms of prestige and gravitas in respects of civilization and history  but for some reason upsetting Palestinians and not Jews IS the bigger story. Remember this Holy site is even revered in Islam and Christendom but CNN and its editorial chose to lead with the Palestinian graves story. God knows what the world would have said if the Israelis done the equivalent.

So there you have proof of the endemic problem we are facing , however this will never satisfy the nutters who still cry wolf about Israel and how the Western media are controlled by the Zionists.. Phff!

The ISM specialize in so-called non-violent activism against Israel. Clicking through their online application forms you can tell how much they’ll convince themselves by self aggrandizing propaganda and excusing cases of sexual harassment in-house. Unbelievably  their online application informs our starry eyed pupils “you have to watch out for sexual predators in Ramallah” but its normal according to them and are common just like any country in the world.(I wish they could apply the same kind of standards to Israelis who have to deal with terrorists who NEVER EVER distinguished between military and civilian targets.)

The ISM say; Sexual Harassment and Assault  http://palsolidarity.org/join/training/

Sexual harassment and assault happens all over the world and can happen to anyone. Unfortunately we have heard about a lot of sexual harassment and assault specifically towards women in the West Bank recently. We have included this section to address how women can hopefully avoid sexual assault and harassment, what to do in case it happens, and how we can all help to stop this and support people that it has happened to.

For the discerning eyes amongst you , isn’t it just interesting in the first place to learn about this remarkable admission? It begs the fundamental  questions how many times have women participants been harassed or abused for the ISM management to include this into their course as thing to learn?

They may dress this up by writing about it in  a very universal way by suggesting it happens all around the world so its somewhat ok, well no it bloody well isn’t ISM, and coming from the ISM who specialize in non-violent action  its all a bit rich.. The ISM paint a different picture about the loving and caring Palestinians but this slip  has exposed the gaping holes between fact and fiction when it comes from the left-wing – this admission is further proof about what they say in public is  certainly not what they say to themselves and within their community in private. ironically aping typical Arab-Arafat like performances to the world’s press who say one thing in English but speaking a whole different tone in Arabic.

Foreign activists & international Aid workers are at best tolerated and exploited by any means necessary in the Arab world especially Palestine. Scenes of Hamas protesting against the UNRWA recently are rare examples of this weird paradoxically relationship. Th Arab world and the PA will publicly give a smiling face to anyone dumb enough to give them aid, (though one wonders  if Hamas continues to show discontent to the UN maybe  more people will start actually believing this. Look we all know this to be true –  that’s people like myself and others who care deeply about Israel and believe there is too much false info about this situation,however the complicit and willing double victims of the Palestinians  want to believe any lies from Palestine added to hatred of Israel which creates a toxic mix. so their view of the conflict will never ever be normal and rational. They even openly admit   its better to train would-be activists in Palestine as its not really war-zone and in fact its a good place to earn one’s spurs.

Palestine is a kinda  Disney-Land for the international left who just want to be doing something whether they think its worthy or not.  Should this not be exposed?? Where is the scrutiny here?

These activists Freudian slips  from the ISM are very fascinating and I wish more and more people including those fighting against the left’s utter hyprocisy against Israel would notice these, and arm themselves with nuggets of truth able to deconstruct and ridicule their  arguments and demented intolerant attitudes finally.
