The 'disputed' bit refers to the fact that it is disputed that what Naz Shah said and did was antisemitic. She did criticise the state of Israel and many people would dispute that is antisemitic. I suspect that many other people would have read my comment as that but, for some reason Keith, you and I seem to have a communication barrier that I do not know how to surmount. There is also the fact that, when I referred to 'rampant antisemitism' you said specifically that No-one is or has said that Dave. When I provided chapter and verse as to who said it and where you then changed your statement to no-one in this debate has claimed such a thing. Are you saying that the article linked by bobad is untrue then? If things that appear in the media can be discounted, which sources are we to rely on?

What was your speculation on the cause of Labour's 'problems' anyway? I must have missed that.

"Found out how bulldozers dig mass graves yet Jim?"

The question still stands Jim. You haven't answered it neither have the links you provided.

The Mobil one refers to "earth moving equipment" not bulldozers - That is credible.

The Balkans one refers to "construction equipment" not bulldozers - That too is credible.

Possibly it is a translation thing and to many anything that moves earth or operates on a civil engineering construction site is to them a "bulldozer".

The IDF had armoured bulldozers with them in South Lebanon in 1982 they are used by combat engineer units to clear obstacles - fact still remains you cannot use them to dig anything - they simply are not designed for that purpose.

It is perfectly feasible for a bulldozer to excavate a trench, it may even be the most efficient way, it is possible. Firstly make a small depression, then gradually create a ramp and making a deeper depression, increase the ramp and make a deeper depression eventually you have a trench with a ramp in and out.

You have been given half a dozen references to Bulldozers being used to dig mass graves - you have nit-picked with one, but in fact Mobil actually refers to using bulldozers.
You have been supplied a dozen times with different news items stating that Israeli bulldozers were found to be on site digging mass graves (Israel actually admitted to only one in their own enquiry into the massacre, it was found that ten were used)
From the articles supplied:
"afterwards, they would bring the bulldozers to bury the people"
Ad Ma Hawil
"U.S. lend-lease bulldozers were used to dig graves for the prisoners"
Magadan
"Bulldozers used by the Indonesian military to dig mass graves"
Yadana
"Bulldozers being used to dig graves"
Mobil Gas Fields
"Bulldozers being used to raze houses on their occupants, whether dead or living, and to dig mass graves"
Sabra Shatila
"the bulldozers used to dig the mass graves"
Bosnia
To miss something occasionally is a mistake, to continually deny something from different sources from different accounts is simple dishonesty - agenda-driven lying.
You persistently request examples of your lying and I respond with lists - here's another half dozen - let's see how you deal with them
Perhaps it's worth remembering what this is really about (apart from your trying to make me out a liar or stupid – somewhat backfired here).
This arose from the fact that, after supplying weapons, access to the camp, transport, illumination and eventually, means of escape for the Falangists who spent three days massacring, raping and disembowelling up to 3,500 unarmed refugees and turning refugees attempting to escape, back into the arms of their killers, The Israeli Army assisted in digging the mass graves in order to hide their participation in this massive war crime, and eventually made most of this evidence inaccessible by building s sports stadium over them.
This atrocity was overseen by Menachem Begin, a man who was later recognised as being a fine, responsible human being and statesman by being made Prime Minister of Israel
This is what you are actually defending, not what machines were used for the job.
Your openly stupid denial of a proven fact and your wriggling attempt to hide your stupidity makes you what you are.
You are not even very good at it - at least Keith trawls up unread "real historians who sell their real books in real bookshops" to cover his efforts.
Maybe it's time you came to terms with your limitations?

"She herself admits it was anti-Semitic."
And has apologised and withdrawn her statement
Why she did so is a moot point, but even if we accept her having made an anti semitic statement - that leaves you with one single identifeid example - a long way from a "major problem"
Until you come up with more examples, that'a all you've got.
What you have not got is an excuse for the fact that nearly one half of Israeli citizens, including the former Justice Minister and other officials, wish to deport the Arabs living there
There are up to 6.5 million Palestinian refugees who have been refused the right to return home - the biggest single group of refugees on the planet
These are facts - not antisemitic statements or threats - actual reality effecting actual human beings.
It is little wonder that there has been a rise in antisemitism in the world today when the Israelis have skulked behind the Jewish People to keep themselves from being tried for crimes against humanity
It puts an ill thought out comment by a labour politician in context - doesn't it?
You won't respond to this - not with facts anyway - it doesn't matter - it's not for your benefit.
The longer you continue this farce, the more chance I will have of repeating these facts and adding links to them - like this

You do it, Bodad does it, Israel does it......
While you people continue to do it you will make shit of any definition and you will continue to expose the jEwish People to attacks
If you think I in any way concerned at being described as an antisemite by someone who has accused the Jewish politicians, as a body, of refusing to identify the antisemitism that is claimed to exist in the Labour Party for the love of that party - think again - that is probably the most antisemitic statement that has ever been made on this forum - AND YOU MADE IT
"Just over 27 percent of those surveyed in September said they agreed with the idea that Israel's treatment of the Palestinians was no different than Nazi persecution of Jews during the Holocaust."
I'm sure that was not intended to confirm what I have just said, but that is exactly what it does do.
Israel has branded the Jewish People as being responsible for their crimes - in doing so, they make shit of any definition.
"Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis."
Leading
Israelis, ex Prime Ministers, Military men, ex heads of security, the liberal Israeli press, Jewish intellectuals, Holocaust survivors and their families..... and many many more Jews, are making just this claim
You once described the phrase "Self hating Jew" as applied to modern Jewish critics of Israel, as having been made up by me - it is now a standard knee-jerk defence of all Israeli crimes

You have been supplied with an eyewitness account that up to ten bulldozers were seen on the site
There were certanly more than the one Israel claimed.
"On Saturday morning, September 18, 1982 Israeli Mossad agents inside the camp actually were observed driving three of the bulldozers in a frantic attempt to assist the Christian militia in covering up evidence of the crime before the exported international media arrived on the scene."

Dave, there is no danger of us falling out over such a minor misunderstanding.
Let us sort it out.
If you are unable to answer the questions I just put to you again, let us start again.

Someone used the word "rampant" in a linked article.
I absolutely accept that fact.
What point would you have liked me to address? I promise to thoughtfully and honestly address that point.

Bubo, best enroll in a review course in English composition, grammar, syntax and English comprehension. You apparently don't understand what you are saying/posting.

"it is wrong to suggest he disagrees with everything Chomsky says."

I agree with Chomsky's rejection of BDS which he bases on the grounds of it's support of UN General Assembly Resolution 194 and it's demand for recognition of the fundamental rights of the Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel to full equality.


There you are in black and white. What you said. You agree with his rejection. You give us the grounds. No demurring or qualification from you. Racism. I'll check Chomsky later (you do have a habit of mischaracterising) but you don't need any checking. Very clear.
