No - I'm going by the fact that he (whoever he is) has come no nearer to providing either description nor numbers of this elusive "antisemitism"
His Wiki entry includes accusations of smears against Labour figures like Peter Hain, and past support for The Conras
He is a right-wing conspiracy blogger whose Wili entry includes
"Peter Hain[edit]
Staines has been credited with being the first blogger to "take the scalp" of a serving British minister, following the resignation for a period of well over a year of Peter Hain from the offices of Secretary of State for Work and Pensions and Secretary of State for Wales in January 2008.[44][45][46]
Smeargate affair[edit]
Over the weekend of 11?12 April 2009, Staines exposed in his blog that a series of e-mails had been prepared by Damian McBride, a political adviser working at 10 Downing Street, smearing a number of Conservative MPs which had been sent to Derek Draper for consideration for publication on the Red Rag blogsite.[47] This led to the resignation of McBride and expressions of regret to the MPs concerned from the Prime Minister, Gordon Brown.[48] Staines provided copies of these emails to the News of the World and The Sunday Times and states that, contrary to the comments of his detractors, he did not receive any payments for this.[49]
His success in the McBride affair has occasioned serious criticism from him of the UK lobby correspondent system, which he believes has succumbed to the ethos of political spin.[50]
Leveson Inquiry[edit]
Main article: Leveson Inquiry
In late November 2011, Staines posted on his Guido Fawkes blog the Leveson Inquiry pre-submission of former journalist and Labour Party spin-doctor Alastair Campbell. All pre-submissions are given under strict and full confidentiality, and all core participants ? including victims, the Metropolitan Police and the Crown Prosecution Service ? are also signatories. Staines stated that he had obtained the submission legally. Lord Justice Leveson immediately called him to the inquiry to make a statement under cross-examination.[51]
Staines gave written evidence denying any fault or breach of the Inquiry Act, when at the start of his oral evidence to the Leveson Inquiry Alastair Campbell admitted sending his evidence to "two or three journalists" and some friends, the order for Staines to appear was quietly dropped.[citation needed]
In late December 2011, Staines was invited to give further evidence.[52]"
He is a right-wing conspiracy theorist with a long record of smearing politicians - not teh feller to eith buy a used car from or take home to meet your mother

Three things, bobad. First, I didn't defend Tunesmith. He's stating facts and has yet to propose a Jewish conspiracy, but he's making me feel uneasy. I thought I'd made that clear. He can speak for himself. Second, I asked you to tell me which remarks were antisemitic, with reasons. Shouldn't be hard for you as you're so quick to jump on these things.

Well, now, that is very worrying and sinister! Talk about a gag on free speech.

Now, in the UK, Jewish businessmen do control the media ( well almost all of it) in the sense that they own almost all of the media.

And, there is no doubt that the media help - in a big way - to shape public opinion in the UK.

I think a person would have to be very naive to believe that the people who own - ie. control - the media would not have some say - i.e. a big say - in the editorial output.

It seems crazy to me that an almost total monopoly of Jewish owned newspapers is allowed in the UK!

Particularly, as previouslt stated - the Jewish population of the UK stands at 0.5%

Finally, when British Prime Ministers are fearful of getting on the wrong side of a newspaper owner, we should all be very concerned!

The trouble with you, Keith, is that nothing you ever say on this site can ever be relied on to have been honestly and straightforwardly delivered. Before you make any more miserable attempts to take this any further via intelligence-insulting diversions, please explain why you said that he had "merely exposed the comments."

We've been through this Keith
Whather it is Antisemitic or not is a moot point, particularly regarding it's source being from a Jewish writer.
Iven if it were - that makes two out of how many members.
I'm sure if you dig around you might find others - the fact that there are antisemites in every section of society has never been disputed
You seem to be subjecting us to drip-drip-drip water torture
There is not a majoor problem, none of those claiming there is have ever come up with a serious problem
This particular lifeboat is long sunk.
If Israel continues to blame the Jews for their crimes and you talk about Jewish pacts of silence in Parliament, you are going to have to come up with more than two examples to make anything resembling a case
Keep on trying though - it helps lighten the tedium

My last post was aimed at Keith, Tunesmith.

You're being pretty brave using that approach here, Tunesmith. I don't see any Jewish conspiracy to take over the media, though there is in general a pro-Israel bias in more outlets than not. There are powerful pro-Israel lobby groups, especially in political parties, which by no means consist of Jews exclusively, which make sure that anti-Israel sentiment gets shot down. It's worse in the US, by the way. Disproportionateness in representation within institutions is endemic in this country - top politicians/public schools spring to mind.

I think I asked this question some time back but don't recall if there was ever a response. It seems to be generally agreed that there is a specific law about antisemitism. It is also well known that hate speech, including that against Jews, is a crime in this country. If any of the quotes given have broken that law then, surely, the people who made them would be under arrest and banged to rights for hate crime. How come they are not?

Well, it can't be a unlawful to say that Jewish businessmen own most of the media in the UK... because that is a fact.

But do they control the editorial content?

Well, have a read of the following:

"In evidence to a House of Lords select committee in 2007, Murdoch even said that he acted like "a traditional proprietor" in regard to the Sun and the News of the World by "exercising control on major issues, such as which party to back in a general election or policy on Europe."

But I'm a nice chap really, so here you have it. Your sacred "definition" is derived closely from the long-discredited EUMC definition that was quietly ditched by the EU, never having been officially adopted at all, in 2013. The body that spawned that definition was "advised" almost exclusively by pro-Israel lobby groups. There was no balance. Look it up, why don't you? I've quoted it several times before but people like you and Keith with ears of cloth won't have picked it up. Go on, have a look, even though you know you won't like what you find. You want to regale us with a "definition" drawn up by a body unduly influenced by a bunch of partisans? Great!

Does that include all those who accuse The Jewish People of being responsible for the atrocities of the Israeli regime by suggesting that criticism of Israel is "antisemitic"?
That, I believe is a breach of one of the items in the definition.
So far we have had a very much pick--'n-mix approach by supporters of the regime.
The Israeli regime has accused Jewish opposition to its policies as being by "self-hating" or "self-loathing Jews" - the very term is antisemitic by nature.
It is also classic fascism - placing the acrtions of the state ovr the opinions and wishes of the people.
Nearer to home, as far as this forum is concerned, we have the suggestion that there is a Jewish pact of silence in Parliament which has kept the details of the claimed antisemitism of the Labour Party from the eyes of the public 'for the love of the party'.
Claims of Jewish plots where one of of the weapons used to send six million Jews to their deaths.
Would we really like a member of this forum reported to the police?
This discussion has taken an extremely nasty and dangerous turn.
I don't know how many Jews make up our financial establishment, I don't care and I never have.
Discussing the beliefs and nationalities of those who exploit us should never be part of these debates - it is totally irrelevant - our businesses and financial institutions are now international and multi-cultural and have been for a long time.
Please leave it out.

Looking back down through the thread I am amazed that none of those so keen to praise the adoption of UNSCR 2334 see that in it the UN's support and promotion of a "Two State Solution" which means recognition by PNA and Hamas of the Sovereign State of Israel. We all know that that is not going to happen. UNSCR 2334 does not solely constrain the Israeli Government it also makes demands and imposes constraints on the Arabs of Palestine.

No refugee camps in Israel Jim.

Egyptians and Jordanians, latterly "Palestinians" saw fit to herd fellow Arabs, "Palestinians" at that, into camps in 1948 on "Palestinian" land and make sure they stayed there in poverty and a state of hopelessness.

I also think IIRC that there was some mention of 4th June 1967 "borders" in UNSCR 2334, as well as restraint, control and negotiation. One of Steve Shaw's contentions has been that Israel has never had to negotiate because of it's alliance with the USA, well one perception now might be that that has changed and that Israel is being forced to negotiate, the Arabs of "Palestine" and by that I mean their leaders however will not as they have no interest in negotiation and their backers will not permit them to. Any negotiation will be seen as a betrayal.

"No refugee camps in Israel Jim."
Who said there was?
Not me.
Doesn't alter the fact that, thanks to Israeli predatory land-grabbing, Palestinians make up the largest group of deposed refugees on the planet and their continuing action stands to add to that figure, should they be allowed to continue further.
The Egyptians and Jordanians, not a particularly wealthy people, "saw fit" to give some of these refugees shelter - as you rightly say, Israel never saw fit to extend that hand of charity to those they made homeless.
Having stolen the land, it would have been ludicrous for them to have done so.
As Golda Meir put it so succinctly on several occasions:
"How can we return the occupied territories? There is nobody to return them to."

Golda Meir was right on both counts - The "Palestinians" were invented by Yasser Arafat - Purely technically the Jews of Palestine are as much "Palestinians" as the Arabs of Palestine.

The Jews did not build or create refugee camps, what they did do was accept and take in over 820,000 Jews from Arab countries and allowed them to assimilate into the fabric of the Jewish State of Israel to become full citizens with a full stake in the future of THEIR country.

In 1947 the Arabs of Palestine had a choice - they chose war and they lost. They have consistently chosen war ever since and they have equally consistently lost. At some point THEY must wake up to the fact that they have to accept the consequences of and bear responsibilities of THEIR actions.

"Predictions by the Treasury ahead of the Brexit vote have been brought into question by a study which says that leaving the European Union will halve net migration, give British workers a pay rise and help to solve the housing crisis.

The report from the Centre for Business Research at the University of Cambridge examined the possible future scenarios following the referendum decision to leave the EU."


Didn't Akenaton mention something similar - months ago? Carney has admitted that the Bank of England got it wrong as did the Treasury under George Osborne's prompting.

"Golda Meir was right on both counts -"
Arabs have occupied that land for millenia
" they chose war and they lost."
So we shouldhave deposed the entire Geman nation in 1945
Don't be more stupid than you have already shown you are.
No conquering people ahs the right to depose those they have conquered.
The stealing of land is still happening - that's what the UN condemnation is about.
"And they have given almost all of it back in return for peace."

If "Palestinians" are an invention then what are "Israelis?"

The fact is, Teribus, whether you like it or not, successive Israeli regimes have worked inexorably AGAINST a two-state solution, making it near-impossible to envisage an Arab state with contiguous land, by annexing large parcels of the West Bank for settlements. Negotiation means giving way to some extent. Compromise. The Palestinians may seem to you to be uninterested in a two-state solution, but that is because they know that compromise is never on the table. All talks have been a sham. Settlement land will remain settlement land. Why would Israel give any back, let alone stop taking even more? No need when you have the US behind you unconditionally. The abstention from the resolution, hardly unprecedented as I've shown, is no more than a mild warning shot across the bows. The US will never stop the military aid to Israel. AIPAC and co. will see to that. Israel only gives land back either in return for a sell-out to the West, as with Egypt, or because it's a basket case, as with Gaza. And the latter was hardly "giving it back" with good grace, was it? Seem to remember that they sent in the bulldozers first, then blockaded the whole place...

"They have consistently chosen war "
To defend their land from usurpation and the right for those driven into exile to return.
It takes a great deal of courage to continue for an impoverished State with a poorly armed untrained and ill equipped army,to fight a well armed (to the extent of nuclear) nation permanently protected from war crime charges by U.s. vetoes, for the right of access to what is theirs by birth and heritage.
It takes no courage at all to continue to oppress that State.

The fact is, Shaw, whether you like it or not, since the Khartoum Conference of 1967 the Arabs of the region, and in saying that I mean their so-called leaders, have never had any intention, or interest, in pursuing anything that would deliver a "Two State Solution".

The Israelis ahve refused to return land and refused to consider refugees returning
How can any "so called leadership" consider such an illegal position that entails such a situation?
The fact that you refuse to respond to this makes it clear that you are aware of that fact.
Whatever the Arab leadership is like, it is imminently preferable to one adopting an ethnich cleansing policy and attempting to set up an
APARTHEID STATE

If anyone thinks that the "Palestinian" leadership have any desire to negotiate for an independent homeland for the Arabs in Judea and Samaria they are seriously deluded. One only has to read the constitution of Fatah to see what their true goals are. The Israeli leadership is 100% correct when they say that there is no partner to negotiate with.
