Naw Jim the "usual suspects" was a term I used to describe the Musktwats, yourself, Steve Shaw, Dave the Gnome, Raggy, Greg.F - those who made a habit of ruining good threads by your incessant tag-mobbing of Keith A of Hertford, as well as the deliberate and obtuse misrepresentation of practically everything posted by Akenaton and laterally bobad and Iains.

The term "usual suspects" was, I believe, coined a long time ago in this particular context by Joe Offer and applies equally to both sides of the argument in these inevitably circular debates. Thanks for the explanation of your own usage for it though. I find it interesting that a person or group of people is being discussed rather than the issues in hand. Maybe it goes a long way towards explaining why common ground is never sought in these situations?

Shaw did try to come back at what he sees as the opposition by using the term the "usual convicts" but apart from that being defamatory it didn't catch on.

I think collectively, just purely for challenging your view on things we have been accused of being guilty of every "....ism" and being representative of every ".....ist" in the book. Automatically assumed to being died in the wool "Tories" and ultra-right wing - we are of course nothing of the sort - we are merely reactive in that we challenge and disprove the "made-up-shit", myths, misrepresentations, lies and half-truths that you normally present in your biased and bigoted rants.

Whilst I vehemently disagree with your scurrilous and racist broadbrush condemnation of Arab leaders, I'm happy to accept after all you've said since that it was they you intended to attack. I suggest that you review your posts more carefully in future. As for this:

"By the way when you and the "usual suspects" refer critically to, and condemn, the actions of the "Israelis" are you referring to the people of Israel or the Government of Israel (the leaders of the Jews of Palestine)?"

If you really want to pick us off for loose language (look who's talking!), kindly note that I am extremely careful, unlike you, to point to the precise target of my criticism. It takes more virtual ink but I don't criticise "Israelis" en masse, ever. I might refer to the policies of the Israeli regime, or words pretty close to those, leaving it in no doubt that I do not blame the Israeli people for what their leaders do. And speaking of loose talk I'd remind you that the government of Israel comprises the leaders of both Jews AND Arabs, not just "the Jews of Palestine" [sic]. There were a fair few Arabs thereabouts last time I looked into it. At least a quarter of the population, in fact.

Presumably you are unable to defend your case in any more intelligent way.

Steve, it is obvious that Teribus referred to the Arab leaders because the ordinary people have no say in what is done in their name.
There are no Arab democracies.

Jim, from your Indy piece,
"Naz Shah, MP for Bradford West, was rightly suspended for sharing anti-Semitic posts on Facebook, not a Corbynite but a backer of Yvette Cooper in the last leadership election. Ken Livingstone, similarly sanctioned for his remarks about Hitler,

So that's two then, and I have acknowledged that it is not just Corbyn supporters anyway.
He does not explain why the leadership saw fit to suspend some 50 members for anti Semitism, or why the entire NEC was appalled by recent cases of anti Semitism, so he is just in denial.

"you and the "usual suspects"

Your leading "usual suspect" is Keith, who is a fanatical Israeli atrocity denier, an extremist Islamophobe who believes all male British Muslims are culturally implanted to rape underage girls, and an anti-Semite, who claims there is a Jewish parliamentary pact of silence to cover up the nature of Labour anti-Semitism.
Keith has managed to make himself a standing joke with his "real historians" who sell "real books" (none of which he has read) in "real bookshops".
Then we have Ake, a raving homophobe who doesn't believe that socialism is left wing, refuses to describe his version of socialism (and is probably a National Socialist), hates liberals and seems to think Donald Trump is god's saviour of mankind.
Finally we have Bobad - a vitriol-spitting troll.
A truly impressive band of brothers!
You, yourself, up to now, have been unable to respond to those who disagree with you without talking down to them and childishly insulting them with your contemptuous and contemptible responses.

Shaw, are you really trying to tell others on this forum what I meant? Are you honestly stating that you know what I think better than I do myself? Utterly preposterous, your ignorance and arrogance is beyond belief.

You raised a point, I clarified it, you refused to accept the clarification - like I said Shaw having a "Vulgar; Fraudulent" moment - same thing happened there too.

Teribus - 19 Dec 16 - 09:33 AM

You
{Steve Shaw} say you wanted the truth? The so-called leaders of the Arabs of Palestine when given a choice have chosen violence. When not fighting or targeting Israeli civilians they chose to fight and squabble amongst themselves. Once elected to power the so-called leaders of the Arabs of Palestine renege on promises to hold elections in order to hold onto the reins of power. Those in power have total control over the massive sums in aid that have been poured into the West Bank and Gaza, yet the funny thing is that all this money never seems to percolate through to those the aid was intended to help, wonder why that is Shaw? Could it possibly be because the so-called leaders of the Arabs of Palestine are totally corrupt - and these are the "leaders" you defend, support and cheer on from the sidelines.

Now having clarified and highlighted the point as to who I was referring to - is there anything else that might make it clearer to you?

By the way when you and the "usual suspects" refer critically to, and condemn, the actions of the "Israelis" are you referring to the people of Israel or the Government of Israel (the leaders of the Jews of Palestine)?

Jim, you are wrong to accept that Teribus was referring to Arab leaders when he referred to their stealing, grasping hands, scum of the earth, etc. There's the quote again. I won't belabour you with the whole post of his, but you can check it out if you like - he was NOT talking about "leaders" when he made those comments. Check that quote again: "since Arafat departed..." he said, so the rest of it was about Arabs in general, NOT leaders. There is nothing to twig. You can't come here and say one thing then laugh at people because they got it right, which is precisely what he is doing. Fine if he wants to go back and modify his language, but, as ever with him, he hasn't done that, preferring to go on the attack instead.

You single out Arab leaders as "dishonest and scum of the earth", while ignoring the fact that the Netanyahu's have been up to their necks in scandals and corruption accusations (admittedly the "democratic" bit doesn't apply to Israel.
The Netanyahu's have been accused by Israeli politicians of behaving lik royalty and abusing their domestic employees - particularly the alcoholic wife.
Our own British Government has overseen banking scams and incompetence's for years and is now openly running Britain for the wealthy at the expense of the poor.
This is now a description of 21 presidential Trump's (President - in - waiting of the richest and most powerful democracy on the planet)appointees for the new government
Sixteen are white
Three are former generals
Most are billionaires (so much so that this is 50 times wealthier than George Bush's cabinet - collectively worth more than the 43 million poorest U.S, households combined)
This fact will quite likely give rise to conflicts of interest in decision making.
And you dare to call Arab leaders thieves and scum of the earth?
If it is anti-Semitic to demand standards from Israel that you would not of other nations, then the reverse is true of other leaders.
Your accusation of "sum of the earth thieving Arab leaders is selective and plain racism
None of this is about the quality of leadership, it is about the seizure of land and the ethnic cleansing that is happening in Israel

Plainly obvious who I was referring to Shaw. here are a few clues:

1: In 2007 it was the leadership and members of Hamas and Fatah that fought it out in Gaza NOT the ordinary people.

2: Who in any community has the power to organise, call and hold elections? Certainly NOT the ordinary people such power rests with the political leadership.

3: Who received the vast sums in aid? The ordinary people? Hardly Shaw they are as much in the shit now as they were in 1947. The aid Shaw at the insistence of Yasser Arafat goes directly to the leaders, that was the system he set up (must have learned that from his Uncle Eh?).

So in stating what I did there is no way whatsoever that I could be referring to the general populace of Gaza or the West Bank.

Sure. A reminder (and you were not talking about their leaders, by the way - go and check yourself out):

"... the Arabs of Palestine have done what they do best...stealing as much as their grasping hands can get hold of...they are the scum of the earth..."

"IHRA"
By the fact that Israel has chosen to ignore the item in that definition, that which makes associating the actions of Israel anti-Semitic, neither the IHRA, or any other "accepted" definition of anti-Semitism are valid other than discriminating against the Jewish people
What I said has been said over and over again by Jews throughout the world – they are dismissed as "self-hating" – I stand with them, not the terrorist State of Israel's manipulation of the death of millions of people at the hands of the Nazis
This definition is being used to prevent Israel from standing trials for crimes against humanity and war crimes – so far blocked by U.S. vetoes.
Israeli policy is directly responsible for the rise in anti-Semitism in two ways – by identifying their behaviour with the Jewish People, among some, they have turned opposition to Israeli policy into opposition to The Jews as a whole.
The fact that Israel had peddled the idea that to attack Israeli policy is "antsemitic" means that the estimation of a rise in anti-Semitism now counts attacks on Israel as being anti-Semitic – The Jewish People get it with both barrels.
The only anti-Semitism on this forum comes from the likes of Bobad, who vitriolically describes any criticism of Israel as "anti-Semitic and from Keith, who envisages a Jewish Parliamentary plot to keep silent about so-called Labour antsemitism
Teribus can shove his accusations of anti-Semitism up his hole – if there is any room for it alongside his head, which appears to be permanently lodged there.

"That Jim according to the definition of anti-Semitism adopted by the British Government is an anti-Semitic remark."


From the IHRA definition, adopted by the British Government and as used by UK Police Forces since 2015 in defining anti-Semitic race hatred.

Here is what Jim Carroll posted:

"Israel is now indistinguishable from the regime that slaughtered six million Jews and the rest of the world looks on in silence"


Here is the IHRA Definition of what is considered to be anti-Semitic behaviour:

Contemporary examples of antisemitism in public life, the media, schools, the workplace, and in the religious sphere could, taking into account the overall context, include, but are not limited to:

- Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.

- Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.

- Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.

- Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the Holocaust).

- Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the Holocaust.

- Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.

- Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g., by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour.

- Applying double standards by requiring of it a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.

- Using the symbols and images associated with classic antisemitism (e.g., claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterize Israel or Israelis.

- Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.

- Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.


2: Almost in the same breath:

"the Arabs of Palestine have done what they do best - they fight each other, launching their political opponents from the roof-tops of multi-storey buildings and renege regularly on promises of holding elections whilst holding onto the reins of power and stealing as much as their grasping hands can get hold of - these are the people you wholeheartedly support - they are the scum of the earth Shaw and should be roundly condemned" - Teribus

"No messing here. That is hate speech and Islamophobia of the very worst kind." - Steve Shaw

Really Steve where in that quoted passage have I referred to Islam? As I haven't nothing contained in that quote could ever be considered "Islamophobic". But to analyse what I did say:

(a) "the Arabs of Palestine have done what they do best - they fight each other"

Mere observation and actual fact previously commented on by T.E. Lawrence and others. Do you wish to dispute that? Would you like me to furnish you examples of this almost incessant internecine conflict between the Arabs in the region since 1920? Easily enough done.

(b) "launching their political opponents from the roof-tops of multi-storey buildings and renege regularly on promises of holding elections whilst holding onto the reins of power and stealing as much as their grasping hands can get hold of "

Referring to the so-called leaders of the "Palestinians" in Gaza. Do you deny that Hamas in their 2007 "spat" with Fatah that Hamas and Fatah followers were thrown from the roofs of multi-storied buildings in Gaza? Do you deny that promised elections have not been held? The last elections run by the Palestine National Authority in the West Bank or by Hamas in Gaza were in 2006, tell us all Steve why no further elections have been held and who is responsible for that? What organisation and who in that organisation controls the aid money that is given to the Palestine National Authority and to Hamas? Considering that they have received more in foreign aid than the whole of Europe received after the Second World War these Arab "leaders" appear to have done very little with it apart from making themselves extremely rich - they are the scum of the earth Shaw and you are one of their biggest apologists, you applaud them all the way whilst criticising Israel thereby making yourself guilty of anti-Semitic behaviour in as much that you are - Applying double standards by requiring of it {Israel} a behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation..

So what I said was neither "Islamophobic" nor was it "hate speech". I was merely stating well established, documented and recognised facts relating to the "Leaders" of the "Palestinians".

Michael Gove hits it out of the park:

For those on the left addicted to guilt-tripping and grievance-mongering, who believe that poverty is a consequence of western exploitation and that bourgeois ethics lead to oppression, the existence of a political entity that is a runaway success precisely because it is a bourgeois-minded, capitalist-fuelled, western-oriented nation state is just too much to bear. Their ideological prejudices have collided with a stubborn, undeniable, fact.

So what do they do? Keep the prejudices, of course, and try to get rid of the fact. Try to undermine, delegitimise and reduce support for Israel. Make it the only country in the world whose right to exist is called continually into question. Make the belief in that state's survival, Zionism, a dirty word. Denounce, as the NUS president has, a British university for being a "Zionist outpost". And instead call organisations pledged to eliminate Israel such as Hezbollah and Hamas "friends", as Jeremy Corbyn has.

Antizionism is not a brave anti-colonial and anti-racist stance, it is simply antisemitism minding its manners so it can sit in a seminar room. And as such it deserves to be called out, confronted and opposed.


Left's hatred of Israel is racism in disguise

Just by way of clarification to the intellectually challenged, I put homosexual "marriage" in quotation marks, as I, along with the vast majority of people worldwide and millions of people in the UK, do not recognise such a sexual relationship as marriage.
I would also remind IC's that this relationship is not regarded as legal in part of the UK itself.

There are laws, some which I approve of and some that I do not and I shall defend that position for what is left of my life.

I opposed the law on the criminalisation of homosexuality, and I shall continue to oppose the legislation regarding homosexual "marriage".

"Ok. So tell us how we are going to stop military aid to the Palestinians from surrounding countries. Explain how Hezbollah will be persuaded to leave off. Advise us as to how $3 billion in US military aid to Israel will be withheld. Any idea how Russia will be kept out?"


What you are describing there Shaw was the status quo from 1956 onward. The situation has got slightly worse for the "Palestinians" (Who by the way are a 1970 invention and creation of Yasser Arafat - if you look at it logically by 1970 the Jews of Israel were as much "Palestinian" as any Arab from the region) because the Israelis are now no longer surrounded by rich Arab front line states - Both Egypt and Jordan have signed bilateral treaties with Israel and both have held. that leaves Lebanon and Syria. Both those countries have more than enough problems of their own to worry about taking on Israel and the IDF. Russia is no position to assist, either economically or militarily. The USA has a binding bilateral defence treaty with Israel that guarantees that country's sovereignty dating back to 1948 - tell me on what grounds should that binding treaty be cast aside? The state of Israel has been under constant attack and threat of attack since 1948 - the Arabs could have opted for peace at any time they wished, they chose not to do so, they chose war and must pay the price and accept the consequences of having done so. The Arabs of Palestine who chose to wage war and lost have as much right of return and title to their former possessions as the Jacobites in the 18th century, if you wage and risk all in war and lose the stakes are extremely high, and if you think for one second that real life is like a computer game that is automatically reset to the previous start position then you are a fool living in cloud cuckoo-land.

On two occasions (1967 and in 1973) Israel was under dire threat and the odds were firmly in favour of the Arab armies ranged against Israel - they were an nuclear power then weren't they Shaw? Why did they not use their weapons then? If faced with total annihilation why should they not use the threat of nuclear attack to deter their enemies? The USA does, the Russians do, we do as do the French.

"I note your use of quotes. I assume it means that you don't regard Palestinians as actual human beings."


I of course have absolutely no control whatsoever of what you wish to idiotically "assume" but the reasons I always refer to "Palestinians" because they are a political construct of a ruthless, thoroughly corrupt and totally dishonest leader Yasser Arafat - even as I type there are still hundreds if not thousands trying to trace the $millions he stole from the Arabs of Palestine, they have been doing so since Arafat died. The territory of Palestine was defined by the League of Nations in 1920. It was redefined in 1923 when 77% of the territory was hived off for the sole settlement by the Arabs of the region. Since Arafat departed the scene the Arabs of Palestine have done what they do best - they fight each other, launching their political opponents from the roof-tops of multi-storey buildings and renege regularly on promises of holding elections whilst holding onto the reins of power and stealing as much as their grasping hands can get hold of - these are the people you wholeheartedly support - they are the scum of the earth Shaw and should be roundly condemned - instead you applaud them and cheer on their efforts.

If it is on record, produce a single example of me dismissing her.

What she says supports Israel's version of events, as did all they eye witnesses at the time.

Since then the propaganda machine can produce as many "eye witnesses" as anyone could want telling another story.
