Jewish Anti-Goyism and the Entrenched Divisions in the Palestine Movement
September 4, 2015 6:41 am
Echi, I referred to Egypt in the right context: as an example of Max's political naivete. It's you who jumped up like you'd been electrocuted or something at the mere mention of Egypt - it's you who took my reference out of context and brought in the 'dictator' angle. Take responsibility and don't dumb that on me. I've had huge, epic arguments over Egypt at MW with great and savvy bloggers who disagreed with my geopolitical take on Egypt a couple of years ago. Not many understood where I was coming from back then, but I have a sneaky feeling that now, on retrospect, some of them can see where I was coming from after all.

Looks like many non-jews are not ready to discuss the problem of jewish racism within the solidarity movement. They're not used to discussing this subject matter or probably even thinking from this angle. They're gonna need help liberating themselves from their self-imposed censorship. The speed of the progress towards unifying a solid and clean movement rests in their hands. Supplying them with information on this subject matter would greatly help them.

Well as it turns out, echi, the "fascists" of Cairo put food on the Egyptian table when their bellies were empty and aching - they have evidently also showed by far more competence in managing the country's economy and security as well as stopping it from descending into a bleak , sectarian religious tyranny. One doesn't have to be supportive of the Sisi regime to see the huge other positivism that have been created for Egypt since Mursi's unseating. It's called realism and giving credit where credit is due. It was dubious of Max to bombastically support the Moslem Brotherhood in Egypt. His support indicated his simplistic understanding of the country and the geopolitical landscape of the Arab world and psyche altogether.

"Adam and the Gatekeepers (new band name) " Heh good one! I left a link to this article on the 'Roundtable' thread and it seems to have made it through: -BEGIN COMMENT-

Jewish Anti-Goyism and the Entrenched Divisions in the Palestine Movement: link to platosguns.wordpress.com Well someone had to start writing about it! -END COMMENT- Not a single response to this comment - not even from that ubiquitous W.Jones. Too hot to handle of a headline, I guess. Say, did they really do a lyrical article on Max at MW? I'll have to go check in a bit - heh - the irony of writing about the same subject matter but the opposite of mw. And thanks for your vote of confidence in Plato's. I don't really think that Plato's has put the fear of god in MW's editors - yet. Like I said in my 'who and what the heck is Plato's Guns', this blog is but a drop in the ocean - and in this respect, MW is a small wave: much bigger than a drop. But I may become a bigger wave, who knows? I know I can do it, but I haven't really decided to take it up on that level yet - take the reins and ride with fire and speed. Spreading the word here, with readers helping me out cuz I got so much work to do already, helping me push forward by spreading the word on my behalf, would be greatly helpful and appreciated. In fact without this communal effort of spreading the Plato word, I will probably stay a drop in the ocean. I'd perhaps be more motivated to take it up a further notch if I felt that I was not taking on the big bad world all alone.

Thanks for the Alison Weir link.

Yes I too saw the footage of the Syrian toddler in the surf face down last night - just utterly, indescribably unbearable - very depressed about it today - saw pics of his bereaved dad too - heartbreaking. I wanted to post something up on it today. And YES, all these wars done on behalf of israel - the israel that JVP and other fuckers want the USA to keep financially supporting - israel whose inception and creation over the years has created not just untold death and misery, but millions of refugees too. Even though the ashkanazim were never the 'wandering jews' themselves, they sure have passed this wretched mantle on and created millions of wandering Arabs. And they expect people not to call for the dismantling of this evil state? It's antisemetic to call for the dismantlement of israel that is literally drenched in crimes old and new? It's the other way round: whoever DOESN'T call for the dismantlement of israel is consenting to this slo-mo fragmented Arab holocaust. And let's not forget here that the Arabs are actually the real 'semites', not the majority of israelis. This makes israel the BIGGEST antisemitic country in the fucking universe!

Yes, definitely let's all look at what you have when you can get it together.

"Stick to your fascists". And your evidence that I stick to fascists is? That I point out geopolitical realism to you? Where do you get the idea that I support the fucker Sisi?! You're off your rocker and rude with it. You wanna help out the Yinon Plan and Mursi's Islamists divide the Arab world too? You wanna pit Egyptian against Palestinian? Draw lines in the sand and beat your chest? Sure looks like it! In case you haven't figured it out yet, if Mursi had stayed in power, your precious Islamists backed by israel would have swept upland into the Levant and turned the whole spread into another Libya - not counting the disintegration of loyalties within the Egyptian army which would have rendered it asunder when Morsi would order his army to fight the Syrian army like he declared he would shortly before his ouster - not counting the gigantic upheavals in numerous civilian Arab societies, the refugeedom, the starvation, the brutalities and deaths and the further endangerment of religious minorities that the Levant is teaming with. If you can't/don't want to see what a catastrophe the whole region of the North Africa and the Levant would have fallen into, for israel's benefit, if Morsi and his Zionist puppeteers had succeeded at playing their full hand, then I can only shake my head at you. Secularism in the Levant would have been fatally sandwiched between ISIS in the north and east and the Salafists in the south - the Mediterranean of course is to the west. The very scenario that israel has been having wet dreams over and working insidiously towards for decades: you know, like destroying the bulky secular Arab armies of Iraq, Egypt, Syria and Libya - that project was almost coming true with Morsi's idiotic help. Mindful here that the above mentioned Arab countries have ALL gone to war for Palestine, all lost lives for Palestine - and without at least two of these armies intact, the Arab world as we know it would be finished and the first Arab country to fall with never a return would be Palestine. Weirdly, people like you and Max Blumenthal - two westerners - are still frothingly upset over shit that went down between the Hamas and the Sisi, while people in Egypt and Palestine are getting over it. There's been a cautious reconciliation between the two going on now for some time so I guess the Palestinians also are 'STICKING TO THEIR FASCISTS. I really don't like the bully tone you've taken with me on a couple of occasions. I've let it slide before, but I won't be from here on. I am open to you expressing your differences with me and with others, but I completely reject your attempts at smear and censorship. Do not presume that I have not met your likes before. Idealism, my dear, is supposed to be the vitamin of the revolution and you're smoking it like it's crack. This topic is digressing the thread. I will delete any further comments on it, echi. We can all discuss your Egyptian red lines and your definition of 'Friend of Palestine' one day at the appropriate thread. Thank you for respecting my wishes and ending the Egypt conversation right here and right now.

It would be great if you can provide us with an example of this "hasbara of white racism as a cover for Jewish Supremism'.

My flavor-of-the-month nightmare? To be stuck in an elevator with Max Blumenthal and MJ Rosenberg incessantly ragging on Israel and the lobby. Oh my the pitch and the hypocrisy would just be too insanely unbearable to the sinew in such a confined space - why I'd have to kill myself with my exceptional stilettos or occupy the shit out of them to shut them up. The latter, definitely the latter - if my nightmare would only last that long.

You're better off spending your future Max Blumenthal book money on a Palestinian charity instead. Blumenthal is not exactly cracking any secret codes with his "expose" of the zionist rogue state. We would have all heard about it if he had.

"Rant"? Where exactly is this rant you refer to?
The Dirty-Dirty Narrative War and the Smear Attacks on Palestine Activists

Yeah, its called narcissism-exhibitionism on steroids.
September 3, 2015 4:23 am
Stirring his own shitpot with his own hands - the filthy motherfucking racist motherfucker that Max Blumenthal is! Still wants to keep the community divided cuz his books on Palestine aren't number one but Alison's is. OH NO WE MUST NOT HAVE GOY PERSPECTIVE ON PALESTINE AND THE LOBBY RULE THE WAVES!!! ONLY JEWISH WRITERS DESERVE THAT SPOT IN THE COMMUNITY!

Sean, How easy would it be to convert a washed-up, failed and embittered writer into a propagandist for bucks?
