General Antisemitism

Focus below the line: Guardian readers ‘reflect’ on Israel and the Jews (June 30)


This post is part of a series which re-focuses on the problem of biased moderation at the Guardian’s blog ‘Comment is Free’ (CiF) – particularly, reader comments which are off-topic, ad hominem or antisemitic, and yet not deleted by their team of professional moderators. All of the following comments have been posted under ‘CiF’ op-eds which have nothing to do with the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

nakba denialism? very funny. You will have to indict the Guardian as being evil and fascist and the British officials of 1948 in the Mandate as evil and fascist too.

By early 1948 British officials were reporting that “the Arabs have suffered a series of overwhelming defeats.” They added: “Jewish victories … have reduced Arab morale to zero and, following the cowardly example of their inept leaders, they are fleeing from the mixed areas in their thousands. It is now obvious that the only hope of regaining their position lies in the regular armies of the Arab states.

There was no nakba, the Arabs fled from Israel because their leaders were inept.

  1. A beautiful collection of classic antisemitic hate-speech obviously in compliance with the Guardian’s Community Standards
    The main points:
    1. The cause of Islamist extremism and worldwide antisemitism is Israel. – says the wannabe terrorist Turiacus (He will do it…)
    2. Latter day Jews besmirch the memory of the victims of the Holocaust – the well known argument – we didn’t learn our lessons what Beno1Australian’s spiritual ancestors tried to teach us so tirelessly.
    3. CIA, the Rotschilds and the Zionists interested only in money (naturally Bob Chuey is not an antisemite but an anti-Rotschild antizionist)
    4. Commenting on an article about the Pentagon George Priola discovers that the world is run by Zionist bankers .
    Commenting on an article about the trial of a Nazi death camp guard someone (without any malice naturally) suggest to arrest Jewish leaders instead of this poor man.
    5. The well known – the Jews are baby killers – story from azim
    6. A really thoughtful suggestion from Future Thinker: The Jews must return to their original home in Czarist Russia.
    The war on terror is the work of the AIPAC and the oil industry says justanotherfly
    7. And naturally the reason of every suffering is Greater Israel.

    I sometimes compared the Guardian with the Stürmer and I was mistaken. The Stürmer was frank declaring its agenda and didn’t call itself the world’s leading liberal voice. Rusbridger must be proud of his loyal commenters.

    • Well done Peter–wonder if any of the bigoted buttheads @ Guardian realize what racists they’ve actually become–everything they claim to hate!

  2. Seeing that one of the comments was deleted and seeing which one actually was deleted, we now know that the Guardian’s censor, oops, I mean ‘moderator’ is not asleep at the helm. Evil has a friend at the Guardian.

  3. There was no nakba ? That throwaway remark rather ruins the article which had a lot of merit up to that moment.

    • No, there was no nakba. If the Arab leaders in 1947 had accepted the UN partition plan and had not attacked Israel they would not have had to invent a “nakba” to explain their defeat.

    • The nakba was that their attempt to exterminate or expel the Jews totally backfired. Let there be 100 more nakbas!

      • This is a helpful post for me as I have never ever seen such sentiment and I can better understand why it has taken so long to reach an agreement in the area. Many innocent people died and many lives disrupted and you wish this to have been a hundred times worse?

        • It’s kind of hard to make peace in an arena when one side offers a peace agreement and the other side rejects it by blowing up a pizzeria. Of course I don’t take you seriously, Pops. Eat that spinach.

        • I can better understand why it has taken so long to reach an agreement in the area.
          Wich agreement are you thinking about? The Hamas-Fatah unity?
          Popeye are you familiar with the meaning of the words “ignorant, pious, hypocrite”?
          If you are not then look it up on Wikipedia, Jane, Chad, and all of his/her manifestations will be happy to help you.

  4. Permitting these bigots and morons to get published is yet another manifestation of deeply held racist antisemitic views. There’s no way they would run any of these vile posts if the editors didn’t fundamentally approve and like them.

    It’s ironic that liberals like those running the Guardian have broken all records for hypocrisy–i have no doubt that if asked, all the Guardian people would say how important tolerance is, absence of bigotry and racism, full freedom of religion and speech, etc. All of which are regularly trampled by the Guardian’s articles and Comments.

    These people have become everything they say they despise–clearly they’re the “new Fascists”!

  5. One has to lack intelligence and common sense to think that when you remove people out of their homes do not allow them to return and regularly invade their houses to pick up their young ones in the middle of the night you will be liked by those who suffer at your hands. Totally stupid for the Zionists to think that they will be liked by those they torment on a daily basis.

    • You are completely confused Jane. We don’t want to be liked by Nazis, antisemites and similar dirt whose rants you read on the Guardian CIF and copy/past here. Exactly the opposite – we are proud to be hated by them. At the same time we understand the eternal love you feel toward this shit – Similis simile gaudet.

  6. It is this type of drek that solidifies the perspective that there is justice found by murdering children. The Guardian and its editors have blood on their hands, and their maniacal, blood thirsty, conspiracy driven, hate monger fan base is proof.

    While they get fat off the ad rates, Jews are attacked is very real, physical ways. For the editors of that shitrag to not see the connection shows how imperceptive they really are.

    P.S. Glenn Greenwald is already wringing his hands about the untold retaliation that will come from Israel upon innocent Palestinians because of the 3 Kidnapped Boys murders. He is, like they all are, opportunistic scum.

  7. Can I simply say what a relief to uncover someone who
    actually understands what they are discussing over the internet.
    You actually know how to bring a problem to light and make it important.

    More people ought to look at this and understand this
    side of your story. It’s surprising you are not more popular since you definitely possess the gift.
