  1. Trevor M says:

    Whilst there are ‘fair’ times to cry antisemitism, all too often any non-favourable comment about Israel is called antisemitic

  2. bookworm says:

    Trevor M, Define: “non-favourable comment about Israel”

    Exactly, like the cry of racism for any criticism of the religion of pieces it’s an instant shutdown method for when Israel’s actions are questioned.

  4. David says:

    Exactly Trevor M.

    When I said that the Jews were returning to their old ways as child killers in their crucification of Palestine, I was accused of antisemitism!

    This is how the international Zionist secret World Government shuts down criticism of Israel, with bogus accusations of antisemitism.

  5. E.A. Blair says:

    Last time I checked, Arabs were, if not also ethnically semitic, at least speakers of a semitic language. So doesn’t that make anti-Arab sentiments also anti-semitic?

  6. pink squirrel says:

    ‘jews are the cause of all the world’s problems’
    presumably Mo is referring to the fact that xiantity, Islam and Mormonism evolved from Judaism
    on that basis he has a point about the ultimate root cause

    that would also make jews responsible for
    Hindu nationalism and ‘honour’ killing

    how are the jews responsible for Donald Trump ?

    and how are the Jews responsible for droughts, floods, earthquakes, global warming, volcanoes, artic melting, deforestation hurricanes and Putin
    I thought those were the fault of gays
    and women exposing independent thoughts

    maybe its all the babies jews allegedly eat

  7. Surfstuff55 says:

    IMO, Israel is wrong in its treatment of the Palestinian “problem”. At the worst, they meet the definition of insanity, repeating the same actions expecting a different result. This does not constitute an anti-semitic comment, unless your skin is thinner than Donald Trump’s hair. It is possible to be critical, without being hateful.

  8. My very limited experience with the followers of Mohamed includes a conversation with a Muslim who did not deny the Holocaust, but explained that it was not a bad idea. I have great sympathy for Israel.
    That said, I can’t offer an informed opinion on the Palestinian issue. Arguments from both sides make my head spin. Not my circus, not my monkeys, though I do wish they would just fucking stop all the killing and strife.
    Another great punch line, Author. Keep ’em coming.

  9. pink squirrel says:

    can any really blame Israel for responding in the way it has done – given the constant attacks and sniping from the other side –
    Israelis know and muslims constantly remind them that Israel HAS to win every war it fights or cease to exist as a nation
    it is in the hand of muslims to end the conflict tomorrow – no one else can

  10. Michael says:

    Some years ago I reprimanded a subordinate. He accused me of antisemitism. I told him that was the most meshugenah thing I’d heard in a long time.

  11. Hmann says:

    Israel’s occupation, impoverishment and imprisonment of Palestine is deplorable, but it has nothing to do with them being Jewish.

  12. pink squirrel says:

    ‘international Zionist secret World Government’

    is that the one that rules the flat earth and faked the moon landing

  13. plainsuch says:

    How can we trust the International Zionists to run the world when they can’t even keep their World Order a secret?

  14. dr John de Wipper says:

    If Palestinians would lay down their weapons, there would be peace tomorrow.
    If Israel were to lay down their weapons, it would not exist any more by the weekend.
    Otoh, Israel DID do some very horrible things as well!

  15. pink squirrel says:

    It is possible to be critical, without being hateful.
    totally possible with any other religion except Islam which brands any and all criticism as hate filled ‘blasphemy’
    no matter how mild of innocuous the insult to their evil, deficiently fucked up and deranged, war loving, shiatan worshiping, scumbag, paedophile ‘prophet’ [decomposing dogshit be upon him]
    the problem with muslims is they take offence at the slightest thing

  16. pink squirrel says:

    6 days with no more comments?

  17. Author says:

    Pink Squirrel, I just tried to email you but you are not logging in with a valid email address. Please use a valid email address when logging in.

  18. loner-too says:

    Author, “.. use a valid email address …” is GCHQ-speak for “… fucking tell us who you are and don’t make us work for it or we’ll really hump you when we do find you, and we will …” .

    Obfuscated edresses aren’t difficult for the NSA/GCHQ/Mossad/Stasi to penetrate and they don’t form much of a defence but they may be sufficient to save us from the pitchfork-wielding, torch-carrying mob of townsfolk who have no sense of humour.
    I don’t know why the Lady Squirrel does it but I do it because I’m a coward.
    I don’t want to die at the hands of the townsfolk, nor to be buried in a dark back room with several large cops extracting a “confession” from me.

    Let us put it this way, you show me yours …

  19. loner-too says:

    Pink Squirrel, I didn’t think anyone would like any comment of mine on the current subject.
    Or, for that, on any subject.
    So, silence.

  20. pink squirrel says:

    terrorism has no religion
    does not indicate or prove that
    religion has no terrorism

  21. hotrats says:

    In celebration of the overdue conviction of Anjem Choudry:

    There was an Islamist who had
    For decades, promulgated Jihad
    To finance this rôle
    He finagled the dole;
    Now he’s broke, behind bars, and quite mad.

  22. loner-too says:

    The theist in jail won’t rot there,
    He’ll be released soon and though it’s unfair,
    He’ll be on Channel 4
    Every day, maybe more
    Spewing hatred without any cares.
