  1. The Guardian realized that the now deleted posts were pearls before swine so naturally they removed them.

    If there is one thing the Guardian readership cannot abide it is the truth. So the Guardian Oberkommando make sure that they never see it.

    The Guardian behaviour is inexplicable; it’s about to adopt Sharia, yet it rids itself of the pearls and not the swine!

    The end jusifies the means – that’s all

  4. My post was on for hours before it was deleted. I think it got over 20 recommendations.

  5. Could it be that the Guardian realised that it had gone too far and resented having it pointed out to them? Perhaps they didn’t have time to read Rosenfeld’s amateurish effusion before publishing it, busy as they are being indignant about Israel keeping the sea path to Gaza closed.

  6. BTW, I think that CiF doesn’t reply any more if you complain about the moderation. I sent an email about a deleted comment on the thread about racism in France last month. The comment was innocuous, it was in reply to a previous comment, it contained links to articles in the Guardian and the BBC, and it started an interesting discussion with 10 more comments. None of the previous or following comments were deleted. About two weeks after I sent my email I got an automatic email that said that they do not reply to all complaints.

    Colonel Windgate..This is inoffensive …quite right to highlight this.

    Mind the Craps is whinny but innocuous …again no reason to delete this.

    Santa Moniker ‘s post talks of “the violence of Muslim groups” …also his posts will be being watched as he is notoriously even more Islamophobic than this rather staid post. This was rightly deleted he should have said of “some” groups

    Achilles post was mundane and should never have been deleted.

    3 out of 4 aint bad tho Hawkeye.

    How about starting a campaign to close down Comment is Free?
    They could shut down the whole of s.CiF.i and no one would notice

    Closing down CIF would be a huge mistake. It would endanger the security of all pets in the English speaking world – lacking the daily Jew-hate venting opportunity Orwellwasright, Ruskin, LaRitournelle, Berchmans and their crowd would be forced to release their emotions by throwing poison to the neighbor’s cat/dog.

    “Berchmans ..would be forced to release their emotions by throwing poison to the neighbor’s cat/dog.

    Why did you spell neighbour that way? You are an American you phoney.

  10. Just BTW – I think the language in that article was horrific. It may be British to call gays “queers” but I find it revolting.

  11. As a thought, of all the people on CiF, is there no one who is amongst the honest and righteous?

    Is Berchmans, for as much as we hate his barbs, his occasional bads humour, or his outrage, a righteous person? A person who will always try to be on the side of right against wrong, whertever it exists?

    You may have partisan views of Berhmans, but isn´’t his opinion also respectable, lacking in racism and hate, and a voice that wants answers?

    Is it so wrong to questom, to doubt to delve into the crux of the matter?

    What are we so afraid of? The truth we don’t agree with?

    Israel will survive and thrive, not through denial, but like every democratic country worthy of the name. With honour, honesty, justice and dignity.

    Long live the secular State of Israel.

  12. To answer your question, no. Berchtesgaden is a repulsive creep, a racist bigot, a Jew-hating hypocrite, with no ability to reason like an adult, and no common sense.

    He is a liar, a man who has sick sex fantasies about Anne Frank (as if the poor child hadn’t had enough problems), a “man” with no understanding of his own motivations, and not enough courage to admit them even if he did understand them.

    He is too small a creature to be evil, he is merely corrupt and wicked, with far too great an opinion of himself.

    And those are his better qualities.

    The article was rubbish. End of.

    Really Martyn?

    Did you post your opinion on CIF too? I have very serious doubts…

  14. El Sid

    “Long live the secular State of Israel.”

    I have never seen this…I would always drink to a 67 lines Israel with its present Jewish characteristic because I thought there was no alternative.

    A very interesting post.

    “He is a liar, a man who has sick sex fantasies ”

    I have said before that I should be flattered that you have to use sexist imagery to try to discredit me. The truth is tho.. I am not that difficult to defeat in argument…many here have done it..I always think of Shactman Israeli nurse and Iksde Wembley… but others as well…AKUS wrongfooted me several times on CIF ..so much so I was embarrassed that he was banned ..

    They have managed to better me without resorting to prurience. If you can write a whole post without diving into sexism you should try it …it can be effective.

  15. Did anybody else notice that when Berchman quoted Irit (“He is a liar, a man who has sick sex fantasies ”), he never even tried to deny the part about being a liar?

    “he never even tried to deny the part about being a liar? ”

    LBJ once said it doesnt matter if the guy never had relations with a camel…just let him deny it! 🙂

    “I am not a liar”…sounds like ” I am not a crook.”

  17. berchman,
    but you’re a liar… instead of keeping your promise and writing that poem, you escape the subject…
