The Isracampus Challenge for Yariv Oppenheimer from "Peace Now"

The Isracampus Challenge for Yariv Oppenheimer from "Peace Now"
Denounce Amiram Goldblum (Hebrew University) for his Judicial Terrorism

Yariv Oppenheimer is the leader of "Peace Now." He has been leading a well-oiled media war against what he calls "Judicial Terrorism," meaning defamation suits filed against leading public figures to harass and silence them. Oppenheimer himself was successfully sued for libel by Arie King and ordered to pay 6500 NIS in damages. Together with his close cronies at "Haaretz," Oppenheimer and the Far Left are sudden all upset by what they claim are politically motivated SLAPP suits filed against the Left. Oppenheimer denounces these in a column in Maariv, in which he claims that such suits endanger freedom of speech and democracy.

This is all very nice, and we at Isracampus are always happy to hear Oppenheimer speak out for a change in favor of freedom of speech. But as part of his efforts at suppressing SLAPP suit harassments and what he dubs "judicial terror," perhaps Oppenheimer should issue a condemnation of the behavior of his buddy Amiram Goldblum, one of the founders of "Peace Now," due to the large number of frivolous anti-democratic harassment SLAPP suits that Goldblum has filed against those who dare to criticize Goldblum's own political behavior and the ideology of the Far Left. We would also like to hear Oppenheimer say a few words about the role of Tsali Reshef, another leader in "Peace Now," in collaborating with Goldblum in this SLAPP suit harassment and in Goldblum's campaign against democracy and freedom of speech. Or what Oppenheimer calls judicial terror.



(In the last posting from a few days ago I had a senior moment and sent it out with the email addresses showing.  Apologies for my senility!)



USA Today describes the administration's strategy: "A second senior official, who has seen the most recent planning, offered this metaphor to describe such a strike: If Assad is eating Cheerios, we're going to take away his spoon and give him a fork. Will that degrade his ability to eat Cheerios? Yes. Will it deter him? Maybe. But he'll still be able to eat Cheerios."
