Frankly Silverstein Doesn’t Give A Damn

Believe it or not, I’ve received some complaints that I’ve laid off anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein lately. I say believe it or not, because I used to receive complaints I spent way too much time on his drivel.

The truth is I generally have had less time to blog due to my personal circumstances, so my Silverstein posts are but one casualty of the situation.

But not to worry. As long as he continues to publish lies, half-truths and general garbage about Israel, I’ll take him to task. Despite his constant libels against me.

The latest example is a post where he invokes the memory of Anne Frank and other victims of the Holocaust to criticize Israel.


Of course, not only is Silverstein not bothered he has offended many, but he’s actually glad. After all, it’s one of the way he gets attention (besides spreading lies).

Meanwhile, I had to laugh at this tweet of his, which was generated automatically from his blog post. It was clearly stopped mid-sentence because of the character limit, but still makes sense.

He certainly does seem to get his jollies by demonizing Israel.

    Richard Silverstein is not worthy to even be in the same room with you, AussieDave. He’s not even fit to touch the hem of your garment or be anywhere near some remnant of yourself you may have left behind after a large Mexican feast. This Silverstein is a bald-faced liar, and, thanks to your efforts, AussieDave, the whole world knows it. Or at least those who take the time to read your fine blog.

    Don’t let some passing criticism affect what you do here. It’s your blog, do what you want or don’t want to do. And don’t take my lack of participation on this site for the next five days as any sort of comment on you or your blog, as I will be spending them in a hotbed of pro-Israel sentiment, Las Vegas. Vaya con dios.

    p.s. some humor-infused bonus coverage of Pope Benedict XVI’s impending resignation might help silence your critics. Just a suggestion.

      Silverstein is the Palestinians bitch. They say jump he says how high. They say good doggie he say woof woof. They say slander the Jewish state he say Ya vol mein furer

      I agree with you. Dear Dave:
      Never take on the fools. They are not so dangerous as they seem, do not try to change them. Morons can do you more harm. They can do something that will cause quite a stire among the people.
      After said it, I think I did not mean it. We are going to kick his ass..this bastard pigsty, we are going to send him to meet Arafat in hell soon.

    I’m amazed he claims to believe the Holocaust happened or that Anne Frank was a real person. I expect this will change soon. First it starts with ‘questioning’ the accuracy of the numbers and proceeds to “It’s a hoax.”

    Interesting that Silverstein exemplifies “holocaust survivors” like Hedy Epstein and Alfred Grosser. Hedy Epstein spent her teenage in Britain, organizing political demonstrations, and Mr Grosser also had protection of French citizenship and never went near a concentration camp. Not to detract from their harrowing experiences, but Anne Frank probably would empathize with the plight of the children in Sderot, cowering from rockets in bomb shelters, and she probably would be turning in her grave at having her memory defiled.

    I just read Silverstein’s post & comments. He actually says:

    “The Africans are being herded into concentration camps. That’s a fact. The Holocaust involved such camps. The only difference is that there is no genocidal program to exterminate Africans.”

    In Silverstein’s delusionary reality, there are an unspecified number of Israeli concentration camps. The ONLY DIFFERENCE he can see between Israeli “concentration camps” and Nazi concentration camps is that Israelis have not (yet) begun genocide.

    Does he really think that?

    This man’s rabid hatred is as out of control as his sick imagination.
