Haaretz joins the Hezb'Allah
For those who thought that Haaretz, the Palestinian newspaper printed in Hebrew, could not get any more treasonous, its new campaign this week is defending the Hezb'Allah. The background to this is that the entire Arab world through the Arab League, led by the Saudis, has denounced the Hezb'Allah as a terrorist group, as have all Western countries.
Well, the loyal and patriotic Arab members of the Knesset would have none of that. They denounced the Saudis and the Arab League for behaving as Israeli puppets for their denunciations of Hezb'Allah. The MKs have spent recent days saluting and defending the Hezb'Allah. Since the Hezbies are fighting alongside Asad's gangsters in Syria, the Israeli Arab Knesset Members are declaring jihad not only against Jews and Saudis, but also against Syrian Sunnis.
And that is sufficient reason for Haaretz to pick sides. As always toeing the line set by Haneen Zoabi and her fellow jihadis, Haaretz ran items this week celebrating Hezb'Allah and proclaiming that it is decidedly NOT a terrorist group:
Hezb'Allah according to Haaretz is just a defensive social welfare group, defending itself from Israeli aggression.
Up the street from me is a patch of road and sidewalks that are full of hundreds of pock marks. It is where a Hezb'Allah rocket exploded in a Haifa residential area in the war of 2006. The pocks are from the ball bearings loaded into it to create maximum civilian casualties.
As part of defensive social services of course.
If a dozen such rockets hit the Haaretz editorial offices, there would be peace in the Middle East!
2. LET'S STOP PRETENDING THAT SOCIOLOGY IS A BONA FIDE ACADEMIC DISCIPLINE. IT IS TIME TO SHUT DOWN THE SOCIOLOGY DEPARTMENTS IN ISRAEL, BECAUSE THEY ARE MARXIST ANTI-ISRAEL AGITPROP CENTERS:
Uri Ram is a professor of sociology at Ben Gurion "University" in occupied Be'er Sheba, and it is he that is leading the jihad of Israeli sociologists against Ariel University. Let's put aside the question of whether Ariel University would actually be better off without a department of sociology, in which case Marxist bashers of Israel would have to seek appointments at Ariel in other departments.
The question remains, who is this Uri Ram??
Uri Ram, a sociologist from Ben Gurion University, thinks Israel's very existence is a crime against humanity. He participates in the Stalin Day commemorations held periodically at Tel Aviv University.
The leftist Zionist David Hirsh fiercely told off Ram in Yediot Ahronot in a piece worth reading in full:
'Uri Ram's mistake is to assume that the boycott campaign is really about Israel. But it's not about Israel, stupid, nor is it about Palestine; it's about Britain. Nationalism can be an insidious temptation and it can narrow our perspective; it has narrowed Ram's perspective. He is not considering the effect or the symbolism of a campaign to exclude a significant proportion of the world's Jewish scholars from European universities; he is not thinking about how the argument to exclude is made in British public life. Ram seems only concerned with fighting an Israeli battle against the Israeli government.'
TIME TO BOYCOTT URI RAM'S INSTITUTION, BEN-GURION "UNIVERSITY"
3. QUESTION FOR HEADS OF MERETZ: IN WHICH SECTIONS OF THE KOTEL SHOULD THE TRANSGENDERED DAVEN??
4. The posting the censored "Academia" list refused to run:
The "Academia" chat list is a censored restricted chat list run by David Levy-Faur, who has indicated that it is open only to those who oppose the "Kibush" ("occupation"). This past week, the list "debated" the latest atrocity by Anat Matar, who is among the worst radical anti-Israel "academics" working against Israel at Tel Aviv University. Matar may be best remembered for celebrating Arab terrorists who murder Jews and for demanding a world boycott against the Technion. Seehttp://isracampus.org.il/…/TAU%20-%20TAU%20Donor%20calls%20… and http://isracampus.org.il/…/Editorial%20-%20Joel%20Amitai%20…. This week she is in Helsinki (with university funds?) to promote BDS terrorism against Israel.
Levy-Faur ran a long series of postings by people claiming that anyone denouncing Matar is a "McCarthyist," but refused to allow the following posting to run:
I would like to know why not a single one of the free-speech mock-absolutists here on the list has spoken out against the banning of the book "Torat Hamelekh" and the prosecution of its authors and of rabbis recommending the book. Selective book-burning is now progressive? Why has not a single absolutist defending Haneen Zonabi and her posse denounced the banning of Lehava from campuses nor the attempts to criminalize Im Tirtzu? Why have the pretend-absolutists had nothing to say about the labeling of Im Tirtzu students as "fascists"? Why not a single word condemning the fascist harassment SLAPP suits filed by leftists, including members of this list, for the purpose of suppressing freedom of speech? Why not a single expression of resentment at the denial to Prof Robert Aumann of an honorary PhD because he holds wrong opinions? Why not a single word about the policy of Ben Gurion University to prevent non-leftists from teaching political science? Why no response to the petitions demanding that author Edwin Black be prohibited from speaking on campuses in Israel, or that Colonel Pnina Sharvit-Baruch be prevented from teaching?
