Every day, millions of people – including Palestinians – practice some form of yoga in order to improve their physical, mental and spiritual health. No, we never thought we’d be forced to ponder something so anodyne in the context of our blog’s mission of promoting accuracy in the UK media.
In their cold disregard for the lives of Palestinians and Arab Israelis, BDS has effectively adopted the new radical left version of the Vietnam War sentiment that ‘sometimes you have to burn the village to save it’ – a phrase accurately reflecting the mindlessness, nihilism and destructiveness of those singularly obsessed with isolating, delegitimizing and punishing the Jewish state.
The following was posted an hour ago on Facebook by Maajid Nawaz, a liberal Muslim counter-extremism activist, in response to a Guardian article on Aug. 2nd titled “Maajid Nawaz: how a former Islamist became David Cameron’s […]
Freedland’s claim that the rally in question (in 1994) included a “mocked-up coffin of Rabin” is flat-out wrong and represents a recycling the far-left myth that Bibi was somehow responsible for the former prime minister’s death. In fact, as blogger Elder of Ziyon demonstrated in response to a CNN program in 2013 which advanced this allegation, one side of the coffin actually said “Rabin is burying us” (”רבין קובר אותנו”), while the other side said “Rabin is bringing about the death of Zionism” (“רבין ממית [ה]ציונות”).

Asghar Bukhari defends conspiracy theory by citing source popular with those who see ‘Zionist footprints’
Asghar Bukhari, a founding member and spokesperson for the “extremist” and “antisemitic” Muslim Public Affairs Committee UK (MPACUK), recently claimed on Facebook that Zionists broke into his home to steal a shoe, in order to drive him crazy.
The letter that went into the Guardian this week was unusual in having almost nobody sign it who is a household name. The letter was a demand from a group of “artists, producers and concerned citizens,” who, it said, “are disappointed and saddened to see that Curzon, Odeon, Bafta and other cinemas are hosting the London Israeli Film and Television Festival.”
Though with most anti-Zionist conspiracy theories it’s typically at least clear what crazy accusation is being leveled, the agitprop in the letter by Messrs. Mahdi and Ramadani is so vague as to be nearly unintelligible. How does it even conceivably serve Israeli interests when Muslim Britons become jihadists and kill Arabs and Muslims in Syria and Iraq?
In the context of the Guardian’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict, the word “rightwinger” is essentially meaningless, as it is often merely a pejorative meant to signify views their contributors personally find […]
