#BDS Fail in Brighton

By Jonathan Hoffman, November 10, 2012

There were only 4 interruptions of Batsheva's brilliant performance last night and all the cultural hooligans were loudly booed and yanked out onto the street commendably quickly by the security staff. I can't wait to see Batsheva in London. The reviews have been great so please buy your tickets if you have not already done so -- cultural hooligans excepted of course.

The Palestinians select and dress their children to look like regular blond European and American girls. They then have them taunt IDF soldiers, aiming to provoke a reaction which will then be filmed and broadcast across the globe - with Ha'aretz and The Guardian in the lead of course.

Ha'aretz twists poll, Guardian and JC follow but JC then has second thoughts

By Jonathan Hoffman, October 23, 2012

Ha'aretz's resident Israel-hating columnist Gideon Levy has deliberately fed the international media a skewed and biased reading of a poll, in order to promote his treachery.

As always the Guardian quickly picked up the non-story:

The wellfundedisraellobby

By Jonathan Hoffman, October 22, 2012

Tim Llewellyn, Seumas Milne and Jackie Rowland (an Al Jazeera journalist) spoke at a Middle East Monitor meeting on Thursday night. It was chaired by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown.

I counted at least 15 mentions of the phrase 'well funded Israel Lobby' - in fact it tripped off the speakers' tongues so adroitly that it seemed like one new Scrabble word "wellfundedisraellobby"..

JC Leads With Crude JNF Smear Story

By Jonathan Hoffman, October 13, 2012

The page 1 lead in the JC this week was a squalid smear story about the JNF which would not even have passed muster for the Morning Star.

It was a story by Simon Rocker about the JNF’s newly published accounts, headed “JNF loses half its revenue”. A completely misleading headline - for one, because the ‘income’ definition referred to excluded KKL voucher income of £7.5 million.

Caroline Lucas MP: The Limits of Green ...

By Jonathan Hoffman, October 9, 2012

SodaStream has opened a shop in Brighton. SodaStream enables people to make their own carbonated soft drinks at home. It is thus the epitome of an environmentally friendly – or ‘green’ - company since it obviates the need for drinks in plastic bottles to be bought from the shops.

Open email to Simon Hughes MP

By Jonathan Hoffman, September 20, 2012

Dear Mr Hughes

How many Israeli deaths will you accept to implement your preferred 'One State' solution?

Because most Israelis - Jews and non-Jews - would never volunteer to sign away the Jewish State.

Do you think there might be a reason that there are no LibDem Ministers in the Foreign Office?

The Post-Self-Destructivism of Judith Butler

By Jonathan Hoffman, September 10, 2012

On September 11th, a German organization will reward the American scholar and anti-Israel activist who is "the useful idiot of antisemites, allowing them to "Jew-wash" their genocidal hatreds with her good name."
