Climate Change Ablaze & Talk Of WW3 Hasn’t This First Weekend of the 2020s Sucked!

So this has been the first weekend of the year, the first weekend of this decade & hasn’t it just fucking sucked!

I discovered my grandmother had died & my arsehole family didn’t have the common decency to inform me, but best not to dwell as one can’t change the past only the present & future, but I’m not sure we might have much of future what with the Australian bush fires & the escalation of shit between in the US & Iran.

Remember when one of the Koch Brothers dropped dead last year whilst the Amazon rain forest was ablaze, well unfortunately the other Koch Brother is still alive to fund the denial that the Australian bushfires currently raging have anything to do with climate-change. If you thought the fires in the Amazon rainforest last year were frigging devasting, the size of the Australian bush fires currently raging make the fires in the Amazon rainforest last year look as if they were your average bonfire in the Blue Peter Garden, people in New Zealand’s largest city Auckland over a thousand miles away from Australia awoke today to find the city was coated in an orange haze as consequence of the Australian bush fires, for fucks sake the enormity of the bushfires in Australia can be seen by satellites from space & the enormity of the bushfires in Australia is creating its own weather phenomenon which is making the situation worse, this is a national emergency for Australia & its consequence could worsen the climate emergency for millions around the globe, all which has come about due to Australia experiencing record high temperatures which very much has everything to do with climate-change being as real as a motherfucker! Oh no wait climate-change can’t be real because Meat Loaf is now a fucking climatologist who reckons Greta Thunberg has been ‘brainwashed’ into thinking climate-change is real.

Hey Meat Loaf you talentless GOP supporting fuck will you be joining Ted Nugent in entertaining US troops when they’ve marched into Tehran. For Tommy Robinson & gammon fuckwits there’s just not enough hate in bushfires killing kangaroos & koala bears & as a consequence for the planet’s eco-system & climate to be further fucked up, because that’s all pinko hippy lefty bullshit, but hey it’s super jiz time for gammon dwelling in mom’s basement with the prospect of yet another war against them brown people who eat Halal with a further escalation of tensions between the US & Iran.

Donald Trump claimed the targeted U.S drone attack this past Friday which killed Iran’s top military commander Qasem Soleimani, was to “to stop a war not to start one”. I wonder if Trump actually believes the shit he spouts, because it’s done anything but prevent a war, it’s actually ramped up the inevitability of there being yet another war in the Middle-East for fucks sake, at the very least there’ll now be far greater hostility from the Iranian regime towards western nations clandestine or outright terrorist in nature which will result in more innocent blood being spilt. The further hypocrisy regards the drone attack which killed Qasem Soleimani was it being a state sanction assassination something which the US & British governments are always quick in condemning other governments for pursuing & more often than not this it’s the Israeli government being condemned more than any other, oh & of course it’s been the paranoia of the Israeli government led by fascist in the making Benjamin Netanyahu which has been itching for western powers to go bomb Iran because there can be only there can only be one regional bully in the Middle-East with nukes.

I’m no fan of the Iranian regime & I certainly don’t want them to be developing nuclear weapons, but ironically bigoted gammon fuckwits who get all gung-ho about Trump getting tough on Iran actually have far more common with the Iranian regime then they realise, in fact the Iranian regime are more liberal in some respects then your average Tommy Robinson supporting knuckle-dragging gammon fanboy, I mean trans women in Iran have the same legal protections as cis women, sure the Iranian regime are homophobic as fuck but so are your average gammon, the Iranian regime are however certainly far less transphobic then your average gammon.

I wrote somewhat of a rambling piece last summer about the likelihood of the US going to war with Iran from the perspective of far-right YouTube shitlords Ben Shapiro & Paul Joseph Watson having something of a ding-dong scrap about the subject, within that ramble fest of an article I wrote that ‘It’s not a case of if but when the US/UK will go to war with Iran’ & I still think the words I wrote are prophetic as Iran has a fuck ton of oil & recently discovered another reserve estimated to be worth 53 billion barrels & I’m sure the Military Industrial Complex always have new toys for troops to play with.

This Jew Says No The Term ‘Zionist’ Isn’t An Antisemitic Slur As BBC Panorama Implied It Was

John Ware

The latest edition of the BBC’s flagship current-affairs program Panorama which investigated whether the Labour Party was antisemitic & thus entitled ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’, was presented by journalist John Ware & he’s a journalist who has form when it comes to producing hatchet job anti Corbyn hit pieces. During 2015’s Labour leadership election, John Ware presented an edition of Panorama which was nothing but a hatchet job of a hit piece against Jeremy Corbyn just as he was on the cusp of winning that leadership election. The latest ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama presented by John Ware is yet another hatchet job of a hit piece against Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party just as if had been produced by the propaganda division of the Israeli government. I did come away from watching the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama thinking either the Israeli government’s Department of Strategic Affairs & Public Diplomacy which ostensibly is the Israeli government’s propaganda division, had either given assistance in producing this hatchet job of a Panorama edition or the pro-Israeli government propaganda it propagates had a serious influence when it came the direction of spin this edition Panorama was conveying, the reason I thought this was that the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama had some of the same talking points which The Department For Strategic Affairs & Public Diplomacy propagates, such as Panorama implying the term is Zionist is a form of antisemitic abuse & irksomely implying criticism of the Israeli government is also a form of antisemitism, both of which this Jew disagrees are forms of antisemitism.

The ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama featured Jewish members of Labour & former Jewish Labour members (some of whom also had actually been party workers) speaking to camera giving accounts of antisemitic abuse they’d been subjected to within the Labour Party, some had indeed been subjected to antisemitism as in what antisemitism truly happens to be which is hatred of them being Jewish, but I do take issue with some of them implying & this particular edition of Panorama generally implying that the term ‘Zionist’ is term of antisemitic abuse. The argument is that Zionism is a substitute term for other derogatory terms which have been used by antisemitic bigots to describe Jewish people, however I disagree because what Zionism happens to be is a political ideology & you don’t have to be Jewish to identify as Zionist for instance both Tory slimeball Michael Gove & far-right criminal thug Tommy Robinson identify as Zionists & neither are Jewish.

The ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama did accurately describe what Zionism once was but suspiciously neglected to mention what Zionism has now become & why the left have an issue with what Zionism has become. Zionism was the political movement which led to the establishment of the state of Israel, this form of Zionism I’ve no problems with because for fucks sake if it hadn’t been for the establishment of Israel I’d not be here being as my father was Israeli, no seriously if I had been alive 100 or 90 years ago I’d certainly thrown my political weight behind the Zionist movement for a Jewish homeland as back then Jewish nationalist was about liberation from colonial powers, but here we are just over 70 years on from the establishment of the Israeli state & sadly Zionism has become something fascistically nasty which is why I & many on the political left now have a real issue with it. Zionism is better understood as a nationalist ideology which like other nationalist ideologies when they’ve drifted to the extremes of nationalist ideology, it has long begun to morph into something a kin to fascism with many of the warning signs of fascism, such as militarism, obsession with national security & rabid racism which includes treating other ethnic groups as inferior & scapegoating them for the nation’s problems, all of which is reflected when it comes Israeli government’s apartheid regime against the Palestinian people with all the human rights violations & the possible crimes against humanity which comes with the orchestration of such a racist system of governance.

Is criticising the British or US government racist? The answer is obviously it definitely fucking isn’t, so why does the Israeli government think it’s the fucking exception, well obviously this tactic is to try to circumvent criticism of the Israeli government’s apartheid policies against the Palestinian people by decrying criticism about its racist policies as ‘antisemitism’, the trouble is this doesn’t actually wash with most intelligent people, it only gets propagated by annoying bigoted uber Zionist gobshites. Anyways the Israeli government aren’t any special exception to not being criticised or challenged when it comes to its policies as it’s the democratic right of all people to challenge those in governments about how they are governing over us, it’s only fascists who think differently if they’re in charge of the government of any nation state & then all who are governed over by that government must swear blind unquestioning obedience to that government, I certainly don’t as yet think the Israeli government is fascist but I fear that’s the direction it’s currently travelling & Benjamin Netanyahu is definitely a fascist despot in the making.

What definitely is fascistic are those annoying bigoted uber Zionist gobshites such as conservative commentator Ben Shapiro who seem to think you’re not a ‘real Jew’ unless you do as they say which politically amounts to being prepared to suck the cock of Benjamin Netanyahu in appreciation for massacring tens upon tens of innocent Palestinian people, err who made these Zionist gobshites the arbiters of what isn’t & isn’t Jewish, oh I’m sure they’ll read this article & say I’m not a ‘real Jew’ despite the fact I’m just as Jewish as they are by the fact my mother was Jewish which has always been what determined you as a Jew, I’m Jewish get over it & stop telling me how I ought to be as somebody who’s Jewish because yeah that smacks of fascism to me, I’ll be Jewish how I damn well fucking please!

The Problem I’ve Had Writing About The ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ Edition Of Panorama

I’ve been struggling for the last 24 hours to write about the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama which the BBC aired on Wednesday evening & It’s not as if I’m suffering from writer’s block or scared of failing to live up to the expectation to deliver an article on a issue which people know is very much my forte.

The problem I’ve been having with writing about the latest edition of Panorama investigating whether the Labour Party is antisemitic, comes despite my immediate reaction having watched it when I tweeted that the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama was a hatchet job of a hit piece against Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party which smacked of either having assistance from the propaganda division of the Israeli government or being influenced by the kind of propaganda they propagated & which in response to I’ve been repeatedly called a ‘Jew hater’ & an ‘antisemite’ & having my own Jewishness doubted by bigoted Zionist bigots.

As for actual core problem I’ve had in writing about the ‘Is Labour Antisemitic?’ edition of Panorama, well its due to it containing Jewish members of Labour & former Jewish Labour members (some of whom also had actually been party workers) speaking to camera giving accounts of antisemitic abuse they’d been subjected to within the Labour Party & some of the details of the kind of antisemitic abuse they’d been subjected was indeed unadulterated hatred of them being Jewish, for fucks sake I’m Jewish & a fucking human being thus sensitive to hurt they were obviously expressing but at the same time I found myself taking issue with some of these accounts as well as in general with this edition of Panorama implying that Zionist is a form antisemitic abuse along with criticising the Israeli government & well the trouble has been I’ve not wanted to come over as a clumsy insensitive cunt motherfucker in taking issue with any of the accounts of antisemitism which with my personal antizionist Jewish perspective I might not consider necessarily antisemitic particularly as some of those speaking to camera on this edition of Panorama have suffered mental health problems due to the antisemitic abuse they’ve been subjected to.

I’m often criticised for being insensitive when in fact I’m far more sensitive than some might think, but as a friend of mine said in encouraging me to write this, you’re never going to strike the ‘right balance’ when writing about a subject such as the Israeli/Palestinian conflicted as I’ve been trying to do (obviously in vain), you’re always going to fuck somebody off when writing about this very subject considering both sides in the argument are so polarised, how fucking true don’t I just know it, oh how fucking true don’t I just know it from the grief I get from bigoted Zionist dickheads about not being a ‘Real Jew’ as I won’t suck the cock of Benjamin Netanyahu in applause for murdering tens upon tens of innocent Palestinians.

Paul Joseph Watson & Ben Shapiro Are Having a Ding-Dong Scrap About War With Iran

Some outside observers might be somewhat bemused as to why two YouTube shitlord heroes of the alt-right might be having something of a ding-dong scrap about going to war with Iran, however what outside observers might not grasp is that alt-right shitlord YouTubers have a tendency to all hate the fuck out of each other which really shouldn’t be any fucking surprise considering they’re all hatemongers thus just full of hate for everything & everyone, plus it’s not as if there aren’t ideological differences amongst the far-right which is what the alt-right happens to be, ‘alt-right’ is a laughable attempt to give the same old horrid far-right an edgy uber cool term but it doesn’t fool me it really is the same old far-right fascistic bullshit hate just a different bullshit label.

Ben Shapiro

When it comes to alright/far-right bullshit, Ben Shapiro represents the more traditional neoconservative position forever in love of bombing the shit out of countries full of Brown people to pillage & plunder those countries of their natural resources in the interests of the Military Industrial Complex, of course this is usually dressed up in bullshit propaganda spin about taking down rogue terrorist states & spreading western values of democracy & liberty which is seriously the biggest horseshit going. When it comes to alright/far-right bullshit, Paul Joseph Watson represents the lesser known (at least this side of the pond) paleoconservative position of non-interventionalist national isolationism, I guess the nearest proponent of this ideology in the mainstream British news media would be Daily Mail columnist Peter Hitchens, however it’s a far more US-centric ideological strain of conservative ideology with proponents such as Pat Buchanan & Ron Paul, but have no illusions that Paul Joseph Watson has any benevolence or love for Johnny Foreigner, he might not want the US or UK to be bombing the shit out of Johnny Foreigner at the same time he’d gladly let Johnny Foreigner starve or go without medical supplies as a consequence of famine or civil war, because as well as being opposed to military intervention in foreign territories the paleoconservative likes of Paul Joseph Watson also oppose the giving of foreign aid on humanitarian grounds, whereas of course lefties like myself will oppose bombing the shit out of countries the Military Industrial Complex want to sink it’s vampirical teeth into we will support the giving of humanitarian-aid to those less fortunate caught up in strife around the globe.

Paul Joseph Warson

So there you have it, one far-right YouTube shitlord wants to bomb the fuck out of Iran & another far-right YouTube shitlord doesn’t want to bomb the shit out of Iran but would let the Iranian people starve if they were struck by some natural disaster or civil strife. Obvious question would be why should anybody give a shit about what any far-right YouTube shitlord says about war with Iran, well you shouldn’t give a shit about what any YouTube shitlord says about anything, but you really should give a shit about the prospect of war with Iran, because I’m not the only one who’s noticed the mainstream news media here & in the United States are already talking as if we are going to be going to war with Iran & every time I hear Donald Trump say he doesn’t war with Iran the more I’m convinced he does, Democrat presidential candidate Jo Biden is talking about airstrikes on Iran & Tory leadership & UK Prime Ministerial contender Jeremy Hunt has said British forces could join the US in military action against Iran.

Every time Trump says he doesn’t want war with Iran the more I’m convinced he wants war with Iran

It’s not a case of if but when the US/UK will go to war with Iran, the recent attack on western oil tankers in the Persian Gulf by the Iranian military which has ratcheted up tensions between the US/UK & the theocratic regime in Iran somewhat smacks of the Gulf of Tonkin incident which was the prelude to the Vietnam War & definitely will play out as much the same if there are further attacks, but we all know no matter recent worrying developments in the Persian Gulf & particularly in the Strait of Hormuz, war with Iran has been a long-time coming. Anytime conservative columnist Melanie Philips has appeared on the BBC’s Question Time panel over the past decade, she’s taken the opportunity to advocate bombing Iran & I’ve thought same as I do with Ben Shapiro advocating for bombing Iran that it’s propagandist voice of Israeli government paranoia.

I certainly do not support the Iranian regime as it’s a essentially an Islamic theocracy which has an appalling human rights record particularly if you’re gay or lesbian though one of the weirdest fucking oddities with Iran is that they’re okay with trans women & in some respects trans women in Iran have better legal protections then trans women in the United States, still this in no way makes up for sentencing lesbians & gays to death. I categorically oppose the proliferation of nuclear weapons, so I certainly don’t want Iran to be developing nukes, which by the way President Obama had successfully prevented with the Iran nuclear deal only for Donald Trump as soon as he moved into the White House being the complete fucking bozo he is tore it up & not only that has inflicted even harsher sanctions on Iran which has included prohibiting the provision of medical supplies resulting in people dying in Iran from fairly curable illnesses, so is it no wonder the Iranian regime might be pissed & is lashing out? As for why Iran might want to develop nuclear weapons well it’s not quite the reason neoconservatives & the mainstream news media tell you.

Donald Trump, neoconservatives & the mainstream news media will tell you Iran want nukes to threaten US/UK & the west, however the real reason has more to with the conservative estimate of about 300 Israeli nuclear warheads many of which will no doubt be pointing at Iran, in other words Iran wants to attempt to even up the playing field somewhat by developing nukes of it’s own. Though I’m no friend of the current Israeli government led by Benjamin Netanyahu, I do appreciate & being a Jew sympathise with the grievance the Israeli government have against the Iranian regime when it sponsors a terrorist group such as Hamas who’s charter stipulates ridding Palestine of all Jews, but the Israeli government’s orchestration of an apartheid system against the Palestinian people doesn’t help Israel nor will bombing the shit out of Iran.

We know there is a growing resistance of far more liberally minded Iranian people against the oppressive theocratic regime in Tehran, wouldn’t it be better to be supporting that movement to undermine & overthrow the current odious Iranian regime so it’s the Iranian people who ultimately choose the direction of their nation & not have the US/UK military bomb Iran into being the latest failed state thanks to neoconservative doctrine. It’s not as if the US/UK & NATO military action when it comes to neoconservative bullshit about spreading democracy & liberty has a fabulous track record, you don’t have look too far from Iran to see this you just have to look next door to Iran. Since the illegal invasion of Iraq led by UK/US military forces in 2003 it’s become a quagmire of a non-functioning state, Afghanistan is a non-functioning state despite the NATO occupation, as for NATO’s intervention in Libya well Libya is now a failed state with public slave auctions & you can’t help thinking the Libyan people were better off under the Gaddafi dictatorship, yeah western military invasion has such sterling record of late err fucking NOT! Do we really want to subject the Iranian people to the same fate as the Libyan people me thinks not, but hey there’s always money to be made from war for the Military Industrial Complex so fuck the Iranian people & no you don’t have to be fucking Alex Jones to figure out that US government is very much a puppet of the Military Industrial Complex.

Yes George Galloway You Are Being A Racist Dick

Though I don’t generally do articles by request, but understandably because I’m Jewish, a friend has asked me if I would write about George Galloway being sacked from talkRADIO for allegedly posting an antisemitic tweet & whether I consider what George Galloway posted to be antisemitic as they weren’t sure it was.

I actually share with George Galloway a lifelong allegiance to Celtic F.C & I’m sure Galloway would be just as livid as I would be if Celtic had failed to win a particular piece of silverware & fascistic Rangers supporters had tweeted there wouldn’t be any Irish tricolours hanging from that particular trophy because there are Rangers supporters who seem to think all Celtic supporters waving the Irish tricolour are IRA terrorist supporting Fenian bastards.

In my opinion what Galloway tweeted was racist, but whether it’s specifically antisemitic depends on whether you consider Israel to be the Jewish state, yes many Jews do consider Israel to be the Jewish state, however technically Israel is in fact a secular state & it’s not just Jews who are full-fledged Israeli citizens.

I do consider what Galloway posted to be racist & he conformed it in his interview on Good Morning Britain when he said the Israeli flag is a symbol of apartheid, so essentially Galloway is saying anybody who waves the Israeli flag supports the Israeli government’s persecution of the Palestinian people, talk about a frigging generalisation then some, has it occurred to Galloway there might be many Israeli citizens who despite strongly disagreeing with the policies of Benjamin Netanyahu’s far-right Likud led government are still proud to be Israeli & the Star Of David is just as much part of their identity as it is for any uber Zionist bigot.

racist dick!

Displaying the Israeli flag isn’t the same as displaying a Swastika flag or what use to be the official South African flag during the Apartheid era which was specifically racist in the embolism it displayed, sure uber Zionist bigots have certainly hijacked the Israeli flag, but haven’t the far-right attempted to do likewise here in Britain with the Union Jack & the Star-Spangled-Banner in the United States, is Galloway going to claim anybody in Britain displaying the Union Jack is a far-right extremist & supports Tommy Robinson, is Galloway going to claim any American displaying the Star-Spangled-Banner supports Donald Trump & his Trumpism brand of fascism.

I certainly appreciate the strength of feeling Galloway expresses about apartheid regime the current Israeli government are orchestrating against the Palestinian people & I’ve certainly expressed similar strength of feeling about the persecution of the Palestinian people in articles I posted on Medium, but it’s the Israeli government at fault not football fans at a cup final waving the Israeli flag nor is it every Israeli citizen or every Jew who displays the Star Of David, I mean yesterday when I was at the anti-Trump protest in London I met a fellow Jew who was wearing a Star Of David kippah & who was just much of the rest of us shouting in opposition of the Israeli government’s apartheid persecution of the Palestinian people, so yeah George Galloway fuck off with your sweeping racist generalisations.

My Message To the LGBTQ Community About Eurovision

Me & the late great Anthony Bourdain have something in common, neither one of us have ever had any great love for ABBA, it’s not that I particularly hate them or anything, it’s that I just find them rather bland & boring, as for the reason I mention this well this weekend is the Eurovision Song Contest & of course ABBA are the biggest musical act to have ever won Eurovision, but as with ABBA I can’t say I’m any particular fan of Eurovision in fact I’d generally describe it as utter shite, so as you might imagine I don’t tend to watch any of the television coverage of the event & I certainly won’t be watching any this year & I don’t think any LGBTQ person should be either.

Okay I might be failing when it comes to ticking the checkbox list of LGBTQ stereotypes, I don’t like ABBA, I think Eurovision is shite & I’ve never drunk a pink daiquiris, however I do realise that Eurovision is big with many LGBTQ people, just surfing the posts of LGBTQ friends on Facebook I can see it is, however I don’t think LGBTQ friends of mine nor LGBTQ folk in general should be participating in anything to do with Eurovision this year if they care about equality & diversity for all, because Eurovision is being staged in Israel who’s government is operating an apartheid regime against a large section of the population.

Netta: Israel’s 2018 Eurovision Song Contest Winner

Because the Israeli entry in last year’s Eurovision Song Contest won, Israel gets to stage this year’s contest, at least its being staged in Tel Aviv not East Jerusalem as was first rumoured as that would have been a another fuck you adding insult to injury staging the contest on extremely disputed land which the Israeli military has annexed contravening international law, but the bottom line is it’s still being held in a country whose government is operating an apartheid regime against the Palestinian people & I’d go as far as saying is orchestrating out & out ethnic fucking cleansing! Israel’s entry in last year’s Eurovision was ironically an anti-bullying song sung by a body positive singer, but this is very typical of the Israeli establishment/government, they like to pose as all so ‘progressive’ whilst treating Palestinian people as worse than second class citizens.

The Israeli army likes to brag it’s the most pro vegan army in the world, yeah but being a vegan doesn’t stop you from massacring Palestinian protesters & conducting ethnic cleansing, I know some people might be thinking around about a particular former German despot & his diet, I’m not going there & it’s irrelevant to what I’m saying here, what I’m saying is the Israeli establishment/government will say hey look we are really ethical & progressive in the way we feed our soldiers but neglect to mention that Israeli soldiers are not so ethical when it comes to massacring Palestinians, it’s the same when it comes to LGBTQ rights.

It’s true to say that Israel is far better when it comes to LGBTQ rights then any of the countries surrounding it, where in some of those countries if you’re LGBTQ you’d be put to death, LGBTQ rights in Israel are comparative to countries in Western Europe & Israel is on par when it specifically comes to the rights of trans people, however same-sex-marriage-marriage is only recognised if the couple get hitched outside Israel, in other words same-sex-marriage is still not permitted within Israel nor is it likely to be because the Likud government is now relying on support from far-right religious conservative politicians who’s electoral base are the kind of religious conservative nutcases who have violently protested LGBTQ-Pride marches which have been held in Israel.

Pinkwashing is an apt term to describe the Israeli government & LGBTQ rights, it essentially means the Israeli government want you to applaud it for being progressive on LGBTQ in the hope you forget the Israeli government’s fuck awful treatment of the Palestinians. Uber Zionist bigots love to tell me how rabidly homophobic Palestinians happen to be, but how rabidly homophobic the attitudes of Palestinians happen be or not be isn’t my primary concern & its not an excuse for the Israeli government’s state sponsored discrimination against Palestinians for well being Palestinians. My primary concern is Palestinians are being discriminated for being Palestinians & this should be the concern of anyone who’s LGBTQ, remember it wasn’t so long ago here in Britain it was perfectly legal to openly discriminate against LGBTQ people & we did not like that it was & well Palestinians are generally experiencing far worse

I started this article mentioning the late great Anthony Bourdain & I will close with a quote of his when having visited Israel & the West Bank “The world has visited many terrible things on the Palestinian people, none more shameful than robbing them of their basic humanity”
