Harold Pinter Recycled
2. Wham bam thank you ma'am:
3. The maliciously anti-Israel leftist Jewish playwright Harold Pinter
Pinter had been a long-term enemy of Israel and Jews, supported
international boycotts of Israel, was part of the movement to defend the
spy and traitor Mordecai Vanunu. Aside from turning out the unspeakably
boring and silly "plays" for which he got a Nobel Prize, Pinter was best
known for his infantile anti-Americanism. Indeed, it was without a doubt
his hatred of America that entitled him to his Nobel Prize more than his
"dramas." If Arafat got a Nobel Peace Prize I suppose it made sense to
give Pinter a Nobel for literature. I personally find the poetry on the
walls of the stalls of public lavatories more inspiring.
Pinter insisted that Israel was responsible for all unrest in the world
Pinter is famous for saying the following: "The 911 atrocity in New York
was predictable and inevitable. It was an act of retaliation against constant
and systematic manifestations of state terrorism on the part of the United
States over many years, in all parts of the world..." Pinter described
America as "a country run by a bunch of criminal lunatics"
Here is an item I posted about Pinter in 2005:
HAROLD PINTER: ANTI-ISRAEL JEW
Nobel playwriter Harold Pinter not only hates America and Britain, but he
also hates Israel and Jews. The fact that he is a Jewish-born hater of
Israel is hardly unusual these days in the fever swamps of the Left.
Pinter a while ago made these moonbatesque defamations against Israel and
"Pinter went on to assert that the one situation that outraged him above
all else was the Israeli `injustice to the Palestinians,' which is an
issue that exercises many, but he then went on to say, in the context of
George Bush's pursuit of Saddam and his weapons of mass destruction, that
Israel possesses these weapons `and has used them." (emphasis added)
Pinter also is quoted there as saying:
"The USA is intent on controlling the world and the world's resources."
"Bush is on a par with Saddam."
"Please wash the cucumber sandwiches down with a glass of blood, with my
compliments." (open letter to George Bush)
"Israel's injustice to the Palestinians is an outrage."
Pinter has long been a promoter of Israel.s most famous convicted traitor,
Mordecai Vanunu, who spent time in jail for espionage activities against
Israel. Treason against Israel makes him a hero in Pinter's mind. When
interviewed and challenged about his anti-Americanism, Pinter responded,
"Look, there is a vast Gulag going on in America." (If Pinter is so
concerned about human rights in the United States, why did he accept the
hospitality of scores of Americans who spent a fortune on feting him in
2001?) We take note of Pinter's loathing of a country that has provided
him with millions of dollars in theatre takings and that has honoured him
