Bullying Ahava's staff.

The dregs and bullies of BDS (the Boycott Divestment Sanctions movement against Israel) just can’t leave the female staff of Ahava alone.

As you can see in "that" video “MrAlexSeymour”, who is making a name for himself in “bravely” following these dregs around, edits the videos to paint his victim in the worst possible light.

In this instance his objective, in ten seconds of footage, is to make a female member of the Ahava staff look like a nasty Christian fundamentalist, which she isn’t.

To intimidate a woman on her own while she is trying to do her job and then put her on youtube is as low as I have known the BDS movement to go…..so far.

But then these actions are being encouraged by celebrated human rights lawyers like Michael Mansfield QC, who in is his recent speech to the Russell Tribunal encouraged this type of doorstep activism.

Mansfield’s message to anti-Israel activists is do what you want and you will be defended in court later on.

As you can see at the beginning of the video the woman is angry that the activists are now specifically targeting her!

Her apparent remark about Jews killing Jesus (although, no where in the footage do we actually hear her say that) is a remark to a male, Jewish activist who spends large proportions of his sad life hanging around outside the Ahava shop.

I don’t blame her for an off-the-cuff remark when confronted by a group of bullies.

I dare say that if the staff were burly men the activists might not be so keen to do what they do.

While laying on the floor of the shop having glued themselves together, as anti-Israel activists have done on three occasions so far, the male staff could well “accidentally” trip over them.

Alternatively, next time some activists invade Ahava and glue themselves together the staff should just close the shop for the rest of the day and leave the activists to fester on the cold floor for the night.

A BUYcott of Ahava could then be arranged to make up for the loss of business.

No doubt Mansfield would be rubbing his hands in glee seeing new clients coming his way complaining about their human rights having been breached.

The Hasbara2.0 has beens are on overdrive here with damage limitation.

I can just imagine the conversations.

'How do we get out of this one?'

'Say her comments were 'ironic''

'OK we'll try that, but what if it doesn't work?'

'Don't worry we have a plan B, some people who have come back from Dubai are not too busy'

You can't make this stuff up!

The Israel-bashing lefties - who profess to support workers rights - bully the Ahava workers mercilessly.

They are as hypocritical as Julian Assange - who whines about leaks concerning his alleged sex crimes in Sweden.

Simplest method of dealing with the problem is to accidently pour several buckets of ice cold water over them as they lay glued together on the floor. Most uncomfortable in this weather .Then see how long they can tough it out .

And by the way, the link shown by zair clearly shows Tsahal came to the rescue of the Palestinian woman when she was attacked by the dog. Negligence is evident on the part of the IDF soldier but certainly not any intention to harm.

zair, you're just a hatemonger.

You're right Richard, I pointed out long ago that it cannot be heard anything on that video. And it begins only after the supposed "Jesus killer" insult. Nice editing. And probably a very unprofessional post-sync.

I just see that you cannot show anything that can deny the fact that you apply double standards. If you didn't, then, you would have no difficulty in showing how bad you are against dictatures such as Iran, Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Lybia, Yemen, Somalia, etc. But you have a lot of difficulties showing that, haven't you?

Racists and especially antisemites are always a subject in a Jewish blog. So this is about you too.

Double standards are a sure sign of antisemitism.

I didn't include Pakistan, zair's original country, in the list of dictatures but I guess we can include it as well. They accepted the invasion of Afghanistan out of fear of USA but they are really supporting terrorism such as the one in Mumbay.

Was that violent enough for zair to raise his voice against his beloved country? Certainly not! Zilch! Zero! Zéro! אפס!

I should point out to you Zair that it is you that chooses to visit a British (Jewish) website on a nearly daily basis to complain about the behaviour of the Israeli army, or to cheer-lead various enemies of Israel. Since this is a British website, not an Israeli one, I am intrigued as to why you do this.

And yes, it is particularly strange, given that this is a British website, that you do not come on here to criticise the British military, since we are also an "occupier" and are also regularly accused of the kinds of "brutality" which you are complaining about. In addition, whereas Israel's actions are clearly due to self defence - Israel's enemies represent a direct existential threat - Britain and America's reasons for occupying Iraq and Afghanistan are far more tenuous.

Please at least take the trouble to think about this. I fear your obsession with Israel is "disproportionate" and that this obsession is not good for your mental health.

And yes I do love Israel Zair, because it is a liberal democracy and I love liberty and democracy, things which we in Britain take for granted but are preciously rare in that part of the world. I also strongly support the right of the Jewish people to live in peace in their biblical homeland after millennia of suffering and ill treatment. It saddens me that you do not share this view.

It also saddens me that you treat people on these blogs with so much contempt. If we were discussing other subjects we might find that we agree on many things, and could even strike up a friendship of sorts. But the way things are, you make it very difficult to find any common ground.

Please give this a bit of thought, and have a nice evening.

The problem with Islamists is that they are so brainwashed by the propaganda they see in the hate news they read, that they don't realise how clear appear their double standards.

Maybe I'm taking the Israeli habit of being blunt, but I would have called it "monomania" although the term is a bit obsolete.

Expecting Zair to desist from his antisemitic screeching is like expecting the sun to rise in the west.

Of course, since antisemites regularly lie and claim that white is black and vice versa, perhaps Zair is expecting just that. We know, after all, how brain-washed he is by antisemitic propaganda.

I would point out that zair's use of the term "IOF" is taken from neo-Nazi and Islamist websites - that's where the term first appeared.

It is an insult to every Jew and non-Jew who has dies wearing the uniform of the IDF, died whilst defending Israel from its genocidal neighbours. To criticize is one thing zair, but by the use of such blanket terms, you expose your irrational hatred and obsessive demonisation of an entire country.

Plus y have never, at any time, said anything positive about Israel. Aperently there is nothing good to say about the Jewish state, whilst there is nothing bad to say about Hamas, Hizbollah or any of the despotic dictatorships surrounding Israel which you would never live in yourself.

That exclusivity, zair, is antisemitism. And you stink of it.

And don't forget to post something about the Iranian film-maker jailed for six years for having forced the government to kill a number of his friends.

It is clear that all what the antisemite bunch has to criticise in the world is Israel. Not Iran, not Sudan (headed by an internationally indicted genocider), not Saudi Arabia, not Pakistan, not Syria, not Hezbollahland, not HAMASland, not 'PAland', not Lybia, nothing else than Israel. Nothing else than the only Middle East democracy.

A little bit of lucidity should have everyone think: "if Israel can be so criticised, can't we say ten times worse of all other dictatorships in the area?"
Well, for the antisemitic bunch, the answer to this question is "no". Obviously, they apply DOUBLE STANDARDS! And when the truth is under their nose, all they can do is ad hominem.

But double standards are a sure sign of antisemitism.

From whom? Maybe this "Posner" obsession of yours has no news.

As far as I am concerned, I'm quite satisfied to learn that my country has destroyed some tunnels in Gaza in retaliation for the rockets that nearly killed a teenager (not condemned by the antisemitic bunch).
Three HAMAS militants were killed in the air raid.

Enjoy!

Just a brief note from Israel: weather is here, wish you were nice.
And looking at the topic and the responses, I can only say: "Quem Jupiter vult perdere, dementat prius" (Whom Jupiter wishes to destroy, he first makes mad").
There are people here, all very loud when it comes to defending Israel in all circumstances and who usually take great offence at anti-Semitism (pretend or real), who are justifying an anti-Semitic remark.
That's double standards.
And as Jose says: Double standards are a sure sign of anti-Semitism.

I take it, millis, that you have never, in your entire life, said something you don't mean, because you have been relentlessly bullied, and are feeling angry and hurt.

You really are a fool. That you can't differentiate between a concerted campaign of antisemitic vilification, and someone lashing out (in a clearly edited clip, thus ensuring no context at all) shows your foolishness.

As i said, it appears you are superhuman and have never said anything you regret when angry or hurt (especially after being incessantly bullied as this shopkeeper has been).

Well done yet again for siding with the REAL Jew haters - the ones who show their commitment week in, week out, with boycott calls. That is NOT the same as a remark - without any context attached.

Millis, I'm surprised my country let you enter and connect to Internet. Border security is not what it used to be.

As amber rightly told you, the video is carefully snipped to remove any trace of the supposed insult that the supposed Jew would have received from the Ahava vendor.
Frankly, haters like them deserve being called a number of names, but even that does not appear in the video.

What we see is haters bullying a totally innocent shop vendor.
