Because of all the actual objections to your behaviour.

I do object to your always and only criticising Christianity and never any other faith.
I did not criticise anything. I linked an article and did not even complete a joke.


yes. Criticise was the wrong word.
I should have said, "I do object to your always and only mocking and ridiculing Christians and never any other faith."

I do object to your claiming it is my fault that you do it.
Your fault that I do what? Your paranoia is showing


No. You claimed you did not attack other faiths because of my "agenda."

I do object to being singled out by name as someone likely to be offended by what you were about to post.
Where did I do that?


You identified me by name on Good Friday as one to whom it is a special day, and then posted your mocking attacks.

Jim, you can not quote me because you were lying.
It is also a lie about any "PACT OF SILENCE."
If it was not a lie then quote me.
They were not silent.
They reported their complaints about anti-Semitism to the Party leadership to deal with, as did those complaining of homophobia and misogyny.
No "pact of silence." You made that up.

I am away now.

"Why don't you quote them then Jim?"
How can you quote a majority Keith - they have vor=ted him into office twice.
You can quote who you like but until you produce solid evidence of antisemitism it remains an unsubstantiated quote from someone who either sees Corbyn as a liability or from those who have been been prompted by Israel to get rid of the leader who threatens to introduce BDS
If you can't produce actual evidence, the rest is agenda-driven rhetoric
I ASKED WHY THE JEWISH MPS DIDN'T GO PUBLIC WITH THEIR ACCUSATIONS - YOU REFUSE TO ANSWER, SO YOUR ORIGINAL ONE - THAT THEY HAVE ENTERED INTO A PACT OF SILENCE FOR THE GOOD OF THE PARTY STANDS
"If that is not just another Jim lie, quote me."
Are you actually denying that you refuse to respond to a Jewish writer because he has nothing worth saying on British antisemitism(sic)?
At least give this statement a little gap before you start denying having made it
"Thanks for the link Jim - agrees with me that 5.19 million Palestinians
were NOT driven from their homes in 1948."
Who on earth said they were - I gave you the number of refugees - that is the current number
"According to the United Nations there were 5,149,742 Palestinian refugees driven out of their rightful home - ethnic cleansing on a massive scale"
You really need to get whoever reads these things for you to be more accurate

Because they are people like Steve who have no knowledge and who no-one has ever heard of.

I quote McDonnell the Shadow Chancellor and Corbyn's closest ally, Abbott who is very close to Corbyn, Watson the Deputy Leader, and prominent people like Khan and Thornberry on Labour Party matters.

Who knows more about what is going on inside Labour?
Not you and Steve!!

Nobody is attempting to ethnically cleanse Cyprus

Many of Greek Christian heritage were forced off their land.
You have never criticised Turkey over their illegal occupation on here, or called for a boycott.

Thanks for the link Jim - agrees with me that 5.19 million Palestinians were NOT driven from their homes in 1948.

Tell me Jim why did the Egyptians invade, occupy and steal Palestinian land in 1948 and then shut Palestinians up in refugee camps on what had been Palestinian land?

Tell me Jim why did the Jordanians do exactly the same thing to Palestinians in the West Bank?

I take it that you do acknowledge that in April 1948 both Gaza and the West Bank were part of the mandated territory of Palestine don't you? So how did they come to be under Egyptian and Jordanian control from 1948 until 1967?

While the anti-Israel camp refuses to apply that principle to Jews, it also vaunts the anti-Zionist (read: anti-Semitic) Jew. The only time those on the far left deign Jewish opinions on anti-Semitism and Israel valid are when those opinions gel with their hatred of Israel.

These Jews are trump cards in the anti-Israel arsenal. Their value as people in the eyes of the BDS camp is derived from their identity, but they are not just tokens; they are weapons. We have made it clear that Israel and Jews are inseparable, and perversely, it is this connection that has lent credence to their anti-Semitic ramblings.

Anti-Zionist Jews are, of course, entitled to hold these opinions. Just as white supremacists are entitled to believe that the white race is superior to all others ? and they certainly feel entitled. But that does not mean that those opinions are valid or acceptable; they are morally reprehensible, and so is the type of anti-Semitism enabled by and emanating from this fringe group of Jews.

Dave,
Neither of those can be be deemed as attacks on any person by anyone but the terminally deranged

No-one deemed it a personal attack, but your link did not just "make fun of a Christian tradition."
It ridiculed and mocked the core beliefs of all Christians.
Your impression of Jesus on a rubber cross might be hilarious, but I am sure you would not talk of it to your late father, or any Christian you would not wish to offend.

These were attacks on the Christian faith made worse because you made them on Good Friday, and made personal to me by your naming of me on that morning.

Christians have no right not to be offended, but what I object to is your singling out of that one faith for all your "humour."
That is what makes you a bigot.

I also object to your ludicrous claim that my "agenda" makes you do it, and not just that you know Christians will not bite back.

Under the principle of natural law and justice, it belongs to those who own it - the U.N. has reiterated that fact and declared the settlements illegal
The present situation is due to the hasty botch-up carried out by departing Britain, and has no standing whatever.

The "West Bank" is not, nor was it ever, "Palestinian" land. Under the principle of international law, uti possidetis juris, it is a part of Israel. Israel has been trying to relinquish it to the Arabs but has been rebuffed by their "leaders" every time it has made an offer. If the Arabs keep insisting that all of Israel is "Palestinian" land they will never have a state of their own in the "West Bank".

Ah yes the well worn anti-Semitic trope from the well worn anti-Semite.

Let me remind you again Shaw:

There are no illegal settlements - unless of course one assumes that Jews should not own property or build in those areas because they are Jews. Every current Jewish "settlement" is on land owned by Jews before 1948 or purchased after 1967. Settlements that tried to set up on land that was not Jewish owned have been dismantled. We continue to hear the term "illegal", but "legal and illegal" has to be more that political desires and interests. It has to refer to law. And, frankly, law established during the illegal Jordanian occupation of the area in which Jewish property was confiscated and retitled, and current PA regulations that ban sales or ownership of property by Jews is not valid.

"Not true. I have posted a wide range of views including McDonell and the entire NEC."
All from politicians the majority of arguably the largest political Party in Europe backs Corbyn
Your handful of career politicians - all linked to ether the anti BDS campaign of the in-fighting that is happening represent nobody but their own professional or political interests.
These are the facts of Israel's Apartheid - ANOTHER JEW, I'M AFRAID
"Views on "Zionism" would carry a great deal more weight were they made by messrs Rosselson, Lerner & Lendman if they were all Israeli citizens."
What??????????
That statement is antisemitic in the extreme - depriving the world-wide Jewish people a voice on a political movement that represents the world's Jews and putting it in the hands of an extremist right wing country in the process of ethnically cleansing not Jews
Absolutely insane - fascism at its worst

Jim,
Yup - and the majority of the party back Corbyn - you choose the views of a tiny minority who have an interest in getting rid of him

Not true. I have posted a wide range of views including McDonell and the entire NEC.

Who do you quote?
A non-Party member who lives in Israel!!

Dave,
OK Keith?

No.
It is a FACT that you always and only single out Christianity for mocking, ridicule and attack.
That is shitty morality. It makes you a bigot.

The reason you give, that I might use any attack on other faiths against you, but not attacks on mine, is not believable.
If you are being dishonest, that is also shitty morality.

Your Good Friday posts were made after you identified me by name as one to whom Good Friday is special and sacred.
That makes it personal, and even more shitty.
Despicable Dave.

Steve,
the Israeli regime never has to give an inch.

They have given hundreds of miles in exchange for peace.
Half of Egypt and all of Gaza.

However, giving back Gaza brought them nothing but more indiscriminate attacks on their people.

"The suggestion that the only people who should have a say on Zionism are the people who live in Israel is about as stupid as saying that only the people who live in North Korea should be allowed an opinion on their regime's policies." - Shaw

Did I say that? Is the Government of Israel "Zionist"? Last time I looked it wasn't, "The Zionist Union" was the main opposition party. Political parties in the Knesset describe them selves as being "Secular", "Zionist Labour", "Religious Zionist", "Liberal Zionist", Arab - One thing is certain Shaw, there are many and varied types of "Zionist" organisations in Israel and throughout the world - Not just one as Leon Rosselson stated. Tell me Shaw how many political parties are there represented in Gaza or in the Palestine Authority? Do they actually have an elected opposition, or did they all fly off the roofs of high-rises ten years ago? Tell me do you think the "Palestinians" will ever be given another chance to vote in an election? If so when do you think it might happen? Within our lifetime?

And yes Shaw the only people who do get a direct say in the policies of individual governments throughout the world are the electorates of those countries. As stated in my post Rosselson, Lerner and Lendman have got some bloody nerve advocating and dictating, from the safety of their homes in the UK and in the USA, policies that the Government of Israel should adopt that could well result in the mass slaughter of it's Jewish population.

The Wall and the drop in Israeli deaths can be easily checked Shaw:

"The barrier was built during the Second Intifada that began in September 2000, and was defended by the Israeli government as necessary to stop the wave of violence inside Israel that the uprising had brought with it. The Israeli government argues in defence of the wall, that between 2000 and July 2003 (completion of the "first continuous segment"), 73 suicide bombings were carried out from the West Bank, while from August 2003 to the end of 2006, only 12 attacks were carried out

Excuse me please, teacher Sir, but that is a reduction to 1/6th of the pre-wall number of incidents. Or if you would prefer it a reduction from an average of two suicide bombings a month over a three year period to one suicide bombing every three months over a similar three year period. Seems like one hell of an improvement and pretty effective to me Shaw.

And apropos of negotiations, every negotation attempt has been a charade and in every case for one reason: the Israeli regime never has to give an inch. No matter what their depredations, no matter what their outrages are in Lebanon and Gaza, no matter how much they discriminate against non-Jews in Israel. They have the unconditional backing, in terms of trade and military aid, of the United States. They know that, no matter how much land they steal for settlements, no matter how much they repress a million and a half people in Gaza, no matter how many cluster bomblets they leave scattered over Lebanon, no matter how many children they kill in Gaza, the US will never do more than give them a little slap on the wrist. Hardly grounds for reasonable negotiations.

What a pile of utter nonsense. As you say, things evolve. Your mindset never does. The suggestion that the only people who should have a say on Zionism are the people who live in Israel is about as stupid as saying that only the people who live in North Korea should be allowed an opinion on their regime's policies. Idiotic, and I think you know it. And if you really think that the wall was all about Palestinian snipers, you really are in cloud cuckoo land. You're a sucker for that good old Israeli propaganda, aren't you?

Views on "Zionism" would carry a great deal more weight were they made by messrs Rosselson, Lerner & Lendman if they were all Israeli citizens. Alas they are not, which is why I suppose that they can feel free to espouse the views they do knowing full well residing as they do in England, California and Chicago respectively none of them or their families will pick up the tab should things go pear shaped.

Rosselson's, "There are no 57 varieties of Zionism" is patently as wrong minded as is him applying what the thinking of the founders and early pioneers of the movement thought over a hundred years ago to the situation and circumstances of today, over the course of time things evolve and things change.

Lerner & Lendman can chatter on about "Apartheid Walls", etc, but they were not in the line of fire of "Palestinian" snipers nor would they have been likely to find themselves in close proximity to suicide bombers that the existence of the Wall prevented. Also liked their idea about negotiating with the "Palestinians" - Only snag there of course is that for any negotiations to take place there have to be at least two parties willing to negotiate and that rules out Hamas, Hezbollah and the Palestinian Authority, perhaps Lerner & Lendman could clue us in on who the Israelis should then negotiate with and what they would negotiate as no-one on the Palestinian side has the slightest interest in any form of a "Two-State Solution" - their aim is the destruction of the internationally recognised sovereign State of Israel and the annihilation of the Jewish population, Lerner & Lendman wouldn't of course be affected.

Professor, you have every right to be offended. I have every right not to give a ****.

I am sick and tired of religious zealots of whatever persuasion telling me what I can or cannot do because it offends their religion.

If you cannot deal with that, tough shit.

When I questioned that you said you were afraid of me criticising you for mocking faiths other than mine.
I do not believe that, but I do think you fear criticism.
That is the morality I find shitty.
OK Dave?


No, it is not OK at all. I did not say anything like that and well you know it! I said if I said anything offensive to anyone else you would use that for your own agenda. That is not fear, it is common sense. Yes, it would be shitty if I feared criticism but again, that is blatantly untrue. If I feared criticism, why the hell would I post anything on here? Whether you believe that or not is entirely up to you just as it is entirely up to me to believe that you are deluded.

OK Keith?

"The secretary-general of the United Nations (UN) on Friday rejected a report"
Desn't make it untrue Keith - it's has been a commonly accepts belief for several years no
You were quick enough to reject what the United Nations said when they condemned Israel - even described them as "antisemitic"
Now you are just picking out the bits that you like
Life's not like that
Still insisting we can't suggest what a Jew has said, antisemite that you are.
"No-one knows more about that than Labour people."
Yup - and the majority of the party back Corbyn - you choose the views of a tiny minority who have an interest in getting rid of him
That seems fair!!!!!!!!!!!

ISRAEL IMPOSES 'APARTHEID REGIME' ON PALESTINIANS, SAYS UN
A UN agency published a report yesterday accusing Israel of imposing an "apartheid regime" of racial discrimination on the Palestinian people, and said it was the first time a UN body had clearly made the charge


You forgot to report this Jim,
The secretary-general of the United Nations (UN) on Friday rejected a report, authored by UN officials, that accused Israel of establishing an "apartheid regime," prompting the resignation of the head of the agency that authored it.

Dave, your posts were amusing but offensive to most Christians.
We Christians have no right not to be offended, but I noted that, as ever, you always and only mock and ridicule Christianity.

When I questioned that you said you were afraid of me criticising you for mocking faiths other than mine.
I do not believe that, but I do think you fear criticism.
That is the morality I find shitty.
OK Dave?

Jim, this discussion is about Labour and what goes on within Labour.
No-one knows more about that than Labour people.
Quoting others is irrelevant, which is why I have resisted posting the views of members of rival parties, though there have been plenty.
