Cock fight

While Israel plans its incursion into Gaza, the worst and loudest anti-Zionists are fighting each other. One is suing another for libel.

The litigious one also tried to close down a blog [1] but Google (it was a Blogger blog) refused and I want it noted that Google here does not quite fit the bill of ‘Zionist tool’ [2]. It is quite a climb-down for a revolutionary socialist to deploy ‘bourgeois law’ like this – almost everybody thinks that British libel law is whimsical, subjective and intrinsically unfair. Meanwhile somebody is leaving deposits all over the blogosphere, including this blog, humiliating sour little posts which link out to other sites to the effect that the substance of what was written is not a libel because everybody thinks and says it. This is how libel law works.

This internecine scuffling has been going on for over a year. Principally, it’s bad for the Palestinians. And it’s bad for free speech. It also reflects badly on the Palestinian Solidarity Campaign which I care less about because, as people have noticed, it has been overtaken by an anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish agenda for some time. Also (these two probably won’t care and it’s nobody’s business but antisemites will make capital out of it because they are both Jewish / ex-Jewish) it looks bad for Jews.

It’s generally bad. There’s no good reason not to just stop.
