Jewish News Editors: Bow Your Heads In Shame

By Jonathan Hoffman, August 4, 2011

The Jewish News editorial last week (about the murders in Norway) contained the following:


Hacked by Yachad

By Jonathan Hoffman, July 21, 2011

My name appears on this 'petition' sponsored by Yachad, the J-Street clone led by Hannah Weisfeld.

The only problem is - I never signed it - I would not sign anything sponsored by J-street or its clones.

Richard Millett's signature also appears and he never signed it either.


"Go Back To Bloody Russia!"

By Jonathan Hoffman, July 18, 2011

So said (at 1.50) this revolting harridan to me at the Avava boycott picket this week. Watch her telling a bewildered constable that I am an "embarrassment to the Jewish people"!

This ugly foul-mouthed fishwife claims to be Jewish ...


JC gets its facts wrong

By Jonathan Hoffman, July 14, 2011

Editorial in tomorrow's paper:

This newspaper, along with almost the entirety of Anglo-Jewry, does everything within its power to oppose the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.


Millis aka t-Sam only tells you half the story - no surprise there then

By Jonathan Hoffman, July 14, 2011

Millis of couirse fails to print my response, but then why would he - since when has he ever been interested in balance and factual accuracy?

For those who are interested in balance and factual accuracy, here is my response to Joel Weiner:

Dear Joel


Israel's bill to combat boycotts deserves our full support

By Jonathan Hoffman, July 14, 2011

The passing of this Bill (note: it makes the boycott a civil – not a criminal – offence) is hardly surprising, given that the boycott represents an existential threat to Israel. Other democracies faced with existential threats have also resorted to measures which curtail normal freedoms (eg the UK’s use of internment against suspected IRA terrorists).


Jihad Jenny Threatens to Quit the LibDems over Salah Detention

By Jonathan Hoffman, June 30, 2011

At a meeting in a House of Commons Committee Room last night where I was present, “Jihad” Jenny Tonge spoke about “the power of the Israel Lobby”. Her remarks were in connection with the Home Secretary’s decision to arrest and deport Sheikh Raeed Salah (who had been billed to address the meeting).


Amnesty is NOT asking for Gilad's Release

By Jonathan Hoffman, June 26, 2011

An article in the JC by Anshel Pfeffer strongly suggests suggests that Amnesty is calling for Gilad Shalit's release.


Board of Deputies President Condemns Cameron's Shunning of JNF

By Jonathan Hoffman, June 19, 2011

At today's Board meeting I asked Vivian Wineman the President if he unreservedly condemned Davd Cameron's withdrawal as a JNF Patron.

His answer was unequivocal: "If the motivation was about Israel then we condemn it utterly"

Mick Davis and Gerald Ronson - are you listening?
