By Jonathan Hoffman

Tony Greestein (a hard left Trotskyist anti-Zionist) has a libellous post about me on his blog. I asked him 9 hours ago to change it but he has not.
Greenstein heads his blog with an outright despicable lie: "Jonathan Hoffman of the Zionist Federation Defends Joint Demonstration with Fascists". The rest of the article is in the same vein.
Let's get this straight:
1. There may have been EDL members in the vicinity but to my knowledge there were none with the ZF in the area enclosed by barriers.
2. The idea that I would defend fascism is despicable. For example when David Irving came to the Oxford Union in 2006 I led the opposition. I also oppose fascism on the far Left and from Jihadis.
3. The BNP and EDL have known links. The ZF will have nothing to do with either organisation. At the same time we have free speech in the UK - unlike in Gaza - and as Greenstein knows full well, organisers of demonstrations have no control over who stands in the road.
As a Trotskyist, Greenstein clearly prefers to do things the Hamas way.
To say he is a reptile is unfair to reptiles
