Dear Ms Weir...

May 5, 2015

Dear Ms. Weir,

Jewish Voice for Peace has chosen not to work with you because our central tenet is opposition to racism in all its forms, and you have chosen repeatedly to associate yourself with people who advocate for racism.

You have been a repeat guest of white supremacist Clay Douglas on his hate radio show, the Free American. Clay Douglas is concerned primarily with the survival of the White race and sees malign Jewish influence everywhere. His racist, anti-Jewish, and anti-gay rhetoric can be found across the front pages of his multiple websites.

In the course of your appearance with Clay Douglas on August 25, 2010, for example, you were silent when Douglas invoked the Protocols of the Elders of Zion and engaged in a racist diatribe against Jews. Your repeated appearance on this show (April 23 and August 25, 2010; February 9 and May 18, 2011) show that you knew his extremist views and chose to continue the association.

Your troubling associations and choices further include giving interviews to a range of far-right outlets including The American Free Press, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has identified as a hate group, and the anti-gay, anti-Jewish pastor Mark Dankof. One of your articles appeared in an anthology that was promoted by the infamous Holocaust-denial organization, the Institute for Historical Review. We see no evidence that you have disavowed any of these outlets or institutions.

Our movement must be built on a foundation of love, justice and equality for all people. It should not and cannot win by fueling or endorsing any form of hate, whether against People of Color, gays, Jews, Muslims or anyone else.

At Jewish Voice for Peace, we are particularly sensitive to the long history of anti-Jewish oppression as well as the ways that Palestinian liberation work is frequently tarred with false charges of anti-Semitism. Just as we call out the hateful associations of those who seek to perpetuate injustice against Palestinians, as a movement we must also hold the line against those who promote the false notion that Palestinian liberation can be won at the expense of others.

Oh dear, Amnesty International disapproves of Hamas

Oh dear, Amnesty International disapproves of Hamas 

In this piece from the Guardian, Amnesty International, strangely silent on the incarceration of Holocaust deniers, waxes indignant at the actions of Hamas during last summer's Israeli assault on Gaza. 

It reminds me of Richard Falk's very disappointing piece last summer.

I don't think it's mine or any other non-Palestinian's business what Hamas does or doesn't do and if Palestinians don't like Hamas then I'm sure they have tried and tested ways of getting rid of them. And I said so at the time: 
"....Resistance is all. Who cares what the ‘International Community’ with its 'international laws' says? Only resistance matters. So, a couple of days ago, Hamas publicly shot twenty-five suspected collaborators (everyone knows the Palestinians are riddled with them) and naturally, all the good Jews are up in arms - condemning, judging, offering advice. Me, I say good luck to them."

Gavin McInnes meets Heather Marie Scholl

This clip is from an article in the Daily Stormer which proposes that this Gavin McInnes may well be the 'New Hitler'. Well, I don't know if he's that cool but he does make good viewing.

Other than that, I've no comment to make really other than to wonder about the young woman's tone and accent. What is that sound? Can anyone from the U.S. enlighten me?

The Americans bring freedom to Dachau

This is in today's Daily Mail. It describes the liberation, on April 30 1945 by American troops of the concentration camp of Dachau.  

It was sent to me by my dear friend and DYR colleague, Janet St-John Austen and here is what I wrote back to her:

Dear Janet 
I didn't see that particular article but I had come across the story before. 
As far as I know, the scenes the Americans discovered at Dachau were nowhere near as terrible as those discovered by the British at Belsen which leads me to think that the images and descriptions of the piles of dead and dying actually come from Belsen (lazy journalist?). I also know that those scenes wherever they were, were the result, not of German barbarism, but of sudden starvation and the ravages of typhus, caused by the breakdown of the German infrastructure caused by Allied carpet bombing. 
I believe that the German concentration and labour camps varied enormously. A few years ago, with Francis (Francis Clark-Lowes) I visited the camps of Buchenwald, Dachau and Mauthausen and each seemed to have a very definite character. For example, Dachau seemed extremely orderly and even almost, well, welcoming (There were radiators in the punishment cells), while Mauthausen just gave me the creeps. 
But of one thing I'm fairly sure: the camps were efficiently run and in a probably harsh but not savage, way. Did you notice that in many of the pictures, the liberated prisoners look fit, healthy and rather cheerful? This ties in with the pictures I saw of prisoners when I visited the camp. The prisoners looked extremely fit and strong and seemed to exude a sort of esprit de corps about themselves and their institution. My guess is that they were highly organised communists taking a pride in themselves and in their work.  
Still, I did know that the Americans acted with extreme brutality and encouraged the prisoners to act the same and to take their revenge on the now-captive German guards. Remember, very many of these prisoners and certainly those in positions of authority were communists (inevitably mainly Jewish) and criminals, so we can imagine the relish with which they went about their work.

All in all, this story is a tiny microcosm of the immense story of brutality, oppression and injustice, as yet untold, which characterises the treatment of Germany and Germans in the twentieth century and typically, at the hands of Jewish supremacists and those they control.

I’m doing my little bit to explore and expose this injustice and, as a small step, I’d like to see DYR remember Dresden, and the equivalent German organisations similarly remember Deir Yassin. 
All the best 

Jack Sen and UKIP

"Jack Sen was UKIP's prospective Member of Parliament for West Lancashire before being unceremoniously, and quite publicly, suspended by his party one week prior to the General Election for 'anti-Semitism’, and attempting to broach the subjects of indigenous displacement in Britain and raising the issue of the genocide being waged against White people in South Africa."
So says the blurb accompanying this clip. What I get out of it is that it might be an idea for all lobbying for any and all foreign powers to be made illegal in all UK political parties.
