Richard Silverstein: Fraud Pure And Simple

Anti-Israel DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein today tweeted the following with a link to an anti-Israel article:

In his haste to again demonize Israel, Silverstein has done what he is prone to doing: getting it wrong. You see, the photo of the “Negev mosque” supposedly demolished is in reality a mosque in Angola.

What makes this occurrence of sloppiness from Dick particularly priceless is the snarky tweet he sent a mere 5 minutes earlier, aimed at the IDF for publishing a photo not fitting the tweet it was accompanying. 

Richard Silverstein: fraud pure and simple.

I think that has a nice ring to it.

Update: It now seems as though the picture might be from Gaza in 2009, and not Angola. Which does not change the point of this post, about Silverstein rushing to demonize Israel without fact-checking.

As for those of us who thought it was from Angola, that was the result of a Google image search – the most basis of due diligence – which clearly Silverstein did not even do.

    On a day when four people aremurdered at a Jewish site in Belgium, and two Jews outside a French synagogue are beaten with brass knuckles,
    suffered multiple contusions and hospitalized in serious condition, not a word about these things is written by Richard Silverstein.

    Instead, he busies himself falsely accusing Israel of demolishing a mosque in the Negev. And in his blog today he attacks Israel for producing the highly respected Tavor rifle, of course ignoring Israel’s many advances in fields like medicine, agriculture, etc.

    He pathologically avoids reporting anything good about Israel and rushes into print with anything — even fraudulent — that he can spin to make Israel look bad.

    I believe that he and people like him are partially responsible for hatred of Jews and attacks against Jews around the world.

      It’s very much of a kind. For example here in the states on MSNBC TV and on their blog they crown themselves with the “We’re more liberal and kind and progressive and Democratic party and pro Obama more than anyone else is, in fact we love the left more than the left does.”

      Problem is they have never, ever, ever, ever discussed any leftist issue, policy, plan, personality, politician at all. In fact they operate 100% outside of their own purported constituency. They exist for one reason: to scream and pout and laugh and snort and whine and make fun of everyone else. That’s it. Dick is the same thing. If he woke up from under his catamite tomorrow and there was no Israel on the planet and no Jews – he’d carry on like nothing happened.

      Eventually he did mention it, and blamed it on Israel:

      “Trying 2 head off blame against Israel 4 inciting hate against Jews, BIbi only focuses more attention on Israel. http://buff.ly/1k6aBj3

      not that it makes things much better but Dutch media reported this morning that there were three fatalities and the fourth person is in critical condition still fighting for his life.

      • Kim

        as of yesterday evening (local time) the fourth victim who had been in a critical condition died as well (as the Dutch speaking media now write about four dead)

    Perfect point Benny.

    I wonder what happened to this Silverstein character. Did he visit Israel and have a bad experience? I understand that there are self-hating Jews, and he is surely one of them, but he’s (and there are a few others) beyond the pale. What would possess a supposed Jew, to hate Israel this much? I simply can’t wrap my head around this.

      He was abused as a child. Its abnormal psychology more than politics.
      He also promoted this trash on Reddit- in the Islam forum. He’s race-baiting

    • Hard Little Machine

      There are people who would rather be hated than ignored.

    “Richard Silverstein: fraud pure and simple.

    How about: “Richard Silverstein – Pathological liar”? That also has a nice ring about it, don’t you think?

    I’ve long been of the opinion that, where Silverslime is concerned, one should never look for stupidity to excuse what can be easily be explained by malice…

    And just what did this flaming faggot Sliverschwanz write about these murders? Well, he claimed that the wife of one of those killed worked for the MOSSAD, then blamed the murders on Netanyahu.
    Silvershit, you crossed the line with this.

    • Jim from Iowa

      Do you regularly use the N-word too? Surely you can make your point without using offensive language.

      • dantheman08822

        No, I don’t. But in your case, remembering some of your previous posts, the A-word is highly appropriate in your case, asshole.

    Holy sh*t what an evil scumbag! This is incomprehensible, wow
