Jezebel is No More
Tanya Reinhart, the worst Israeli academic traitor from Tel Aviv University, has gone to the great Gulag of the Sky.
Look at talkback number 8 on this page, which sums up Tanya's career brilliantly.
Reinhart was a fanatic anti-Semite. She was raised as a Stalinist and never rebelled against her communist home values. She was later a linguistics student of Noam Chomsky, the Khmer Rouge's favorite academic, and she followed his lead not only regarding his long-ago-debunked linguistics "theories", but also in his hatred of Jews and of America.
She spent most of her time promoting the jihad against Israel and called openly for Israel to be destroyed. She took early retirement from Tel Aviv University when her bosses there ordered her to choose between her gig there and her other gig in Holland. But she then invented a Big Lie, Ilan-Pappe-style, and claimed she had been driven out of Tel Aviv University because of her extremist anti-Israel politics. That was a lie. Had she really been so driven away by Tel Aviv University, it would have been a badge of honor for TAU. But alas it was not one that TAU actually earned. She simply left to collect some pension wampum.
She died just as she had begun a visiting job at New York University. I guess she hated America but not enough to give up its nice salaries. In any case, her passing means there is one less fanatic anti-Semitic faculty member running about New York City.Reinhart was a regular Israel-basher on the leftwing Neo-Nazi web magazine Counterpunch. Counterpunch is run by the neo-Stalinist Alexander Cockburn who says dem Joos was behind the 911 attacks on America. Counterpunch regularly calls for Israel to be exterminated. Reinhart collaborated with the world's worst anti-Semites. The moonbat Left, led by Haaretz (the main Palestinian newspaper printed in Hebrew), is now singing her praises as a "peace activist". If she was a peace activist, then so is bin Laden. Here is Tanya with a fan:
You can watch this modern day Jezebel spout off her hatred here, explaining why Israel is far worse than apartheid South Africa.
Perhaps the best item on her was by Martin Kramer:
'Cut through Reinhart's fact-free analyses and self-justificatory monologues, and you've got a plain case of bias run amuck. Blinding bias drove her to make a 180-degree error in estimating the course of Israeli policy; the only "Israeli deceit" was Reinhart's deceit of herself, and of anyone naive or foolish enough to believe her....Which makes this professor's bum prediction and moonbat analysis all the more valuable. Tanya Reinhart, Chomsky in drag: no collection of predictions gone wrong would be complete without her.'
Kramer also deals with Reinhart’s common assertion that Israel is commiting genocide against Palestinians and has made the Palestinians a "dying society":
‘For a "dying society," subjected to "slow and steady genocide," Palestinians have enjoyed an astonishingly robust population growth. In the West Bank, the net population growth rate is 3.13%, and in Gaza it’s 3.77%, compared to Israel’s 1.2%. That’s also much higher than the net growth rates of Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt (CIA estimates for 2005). Life expectancy at birth is 72.3 - at least five years above the Arab average, and higher than the same figure for Syria, Jordan, Egypt, and Saudi Arabia (Arab Human Development Report III, 2002 figures).’

Poll: Over 25% of Israeli Arabs say Holocaust never happened
By Fadi Eyadat, Haaretz Correspondent and The Associated Press 18 mARCH
More than a quarter of Israel's Arab citizens believe the Holocaust never
happened, and nearly two thirds of Israeli Jews avoid entering Arab towns,
poll by a University of Haifa sociologist showed Sunday.
The poll, conducted by Sami Smoocha, a prominent sociologist at the
University of Haifa, showed a wide gap of mistrust, anger and fear between
Israel's majority Jews and its Arab citizens, who make up a fifth of
In its most dramatic finding, the poll showed that 28 percent of Israeli
Arabs did not believe the Holocaust happened, and that among high school
college graduates the figure was even higher - 33 percent.
According to Smoocha's analysis, radicals in the Arab world believe the
Holocaust to be a political event, and many feel that by denying it they
expressing opposition to Israel.
Among Israeli Jews, 63 percent said they avoid entering Arab towns and
cities, and 68 percent fear the possibility of civil unrest among Israeli
Pollsters interviewed 721 Arabs and 702 Jews. The margin of error was 3.7
percentage points. Asked about Israel's war with Hezbollah guerrillas in
Lebanon last summer, nearly half of the Israeli Arabs polled - 48 percent
said they believe that Hezbollah's rocket attacks on towns in northern
Israel during that war were justified, even though numerous Arabs were
killed and wounded in those attacks.
While 89 percent said they view Israel's bombing of Lebanon as a war
only 44 percent said they see Hezbollah's attacks on Israel as such.
Hezbollah pelted northern Israel with nearly 4,000 rockets.
Half of Israeli Arab respondents said Hezbollah's capture of Israel
Forces reserves soldiers Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev in a cross-border
raid was justified. That incident sparked the 34-day conflict.
In a press release accompanying the poll's publication, Smoocha expressed
surprise at the results.
"One would have expected more pro-Israeli results among Israeli Arabs due
the uniqueness of the most recent war: a war with no involvement of the
Palestinians, a war in which the lives and belongings of Israelis were
endangered, a war against an Islamic fundamentalist group that most of
don't support," Smoocha said.
MK Ahmed Tibi (United Arab List-Ta'al) said he doubted some of the
Tibi said he could not explain the numbers indicating support for
but noted that usually there is no empathy for the aggressor, which Tibi
said was Israel.
Tibi also said he doubted that the statistics on Holocaust denial reflect
the situation in the Arab elite. Tibi called the Holocaust the worst crime
ever against humanity and said Holocaust denial is immoral.
But some of the sentiments, he said, "might stem from reservations about
way the Holocaust is used as a political tool by Israel."
The poll also found that Israeli Arabs have fears about their future in
Israel: 62 percent worry that Israel could transfer their communities to
jurisdiction of a future Palestinian state, an idea supported by one of
parties in Israel's current governing coalition. Sixty percent said they
concerned about a possible mass expulsion.
Among the Arab respondents, 76 percent described Zionism as racist.
But more than two thirds said they would be content to live in Israel as a
Jewish state, if it existed alongside a Palestinian state in the West Bank
and Gaza Strip.
