Besides being inept in his attempts to demonize Israel, he is also apparently not the most tech savvy person in the world.

Case in point: he seems to have signed up for something called Commun.it, which among other things promises to help “Better Manage Your Twitter Relationships.”

I guess that means automatically tweeting out responses to certain Twitter accounts. Which has lead to this:

And screenshotted in case he deletes it.

Update: I guess he still hasn’t worked out the “off” button.

The Islam and Judaism Expert http://www.israellycool.com/2015/02/20/the-islam-and-judaism-expert/ http://www.israellycool.com/2015/02/20/the-islam-and-judaism-expert/#comments Fri, 20 Feb 2015 09:23:53 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=73903 Anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein really does serve up some soft balls.

Regarding his knowledge of Islam, Silverstein wrote the following in his recent piece:

http://www.richardsilverstein.com/2015/02/18/french-media-documents-israeli-reporters-fraudulent-paris-walk-on-muslim-wild-side/

In fact, the hijab is legally prohibited in France. A French reader who walks in Paris daily says the last time she saw anyone wearing a hijab was months ago.

Yeah, about that

Even Silverstein’s devoted commenters point this out to him.

But it’s hardly surprising that Silverstein’s knowledge of Islam would be found to be lacking, given his level of knowledge on “Israel & Judaism.”

Yes, I know it’s too easy. But it’s also too much fun to discredit such a pathological hater of Israel.

Richard Silverstein Bashes Jewish Reporter Who Was Harassed In France http://www.israellycool.com/2015/02/17/richard-silverstein-bashes-jewish-reporter-who-was-harassed-in-france/ http://www.israellycool.com/2015/02/17/richard-silverstein-bashes-jewish-reporter-who-was-harassed-in-france/#comments Tue, 17 Feb 2015 18:52:51 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=73753 Yesterday, I posted the video 10 Hours of Walking In Paris As A Jew by Israel journalist Zvika Klein. While the results were predictable, they were still disturbing.

Also predictable yet disturbing is the reaction to this video of anti-Israel blogger Richard Silverstein,. who characterized it as a “provocation” and “Islamphobic”, while bashing Jews and Israelis.

I kid you not.

In his post on the topic, Silverstein writes:

An Israeli journalist writing for the Adelson-owned, Makor Rishon/NRG, devised an Israeli version of Charlie Hebdo to embarrass the Muslims of Paris. It is ‘gotcha journalism’ of the worst sort. The reporter, Zvika Klein, donned a kippah and tzitzit (he is not Orthodox) and spent ten hours roaming the streets of various Paris neighborhoods. He focussed particularly on Muslim neighborhoods hoping he would provoke an especially vehement or abusive response. He succeeded. Several passersby spat or glowered at him or shouted “Vive Les Palestiniens!” To further reinforce the point that Arabs are animals, he walked through other neighborhoods where he was treated civilly.

This is journalism of the most cynical, debased sort. Why? Because Klein doesn’t plan to walk through Tel Aviv’s poorest neighborhoods dressed as an African refugee. Nor does he plan to walk through Tapuach or Yizhar wearing a keffiyeh. If he had, he likely would’ve been killed rather than just spat upon. He doesn’t plan to walk through Meah Shearim kissing his boyfriend. When he tries these stunts and publicizes the reactions, then we’ll know he’s trying to be fair and balanced rather than an Islamophobic provocateur.

Once again, Silverstein is showing his disdain for the truth. And Israeli and Jewish people.

Let’s begin with the fact that Zvika is an Orthodox Jew, contrary to Silverstein’s assertion.

The thing is, even before Zvika’s tweet on the matter, this information was readily available online. With a quick Google search, I discovered this fact near the top of the results. Silverstein, who boasts of being a journalist despite having no such credentials, should surely have done his research. Alas, once again he hasn’t. Because, quite frankly, his agenda is not the truth. It is the demonization of Israel.

(As of the time of this post, Silverstein had been informed of his mistake hours earlier. Yet has left up the lie).

Besides the falsehood here, think of the perversity of Silverstein’s argument. A Jew provokes Muslims by wearing the clothes of a Jew. How dare he! It is downright Islamophobic to do so knowing the Muslims will likely behave in a despicable way towards the Jew.

It is also a racist argument, depriving Muslims of all agency in acting like decent human beings when confronted with a Jew dressed as a Jew, minding his business.

Silverstein’s comparisons are also dishonest. To claim a palestinian would “find death” in an Israeli neighborhood is an outright lie – unless that palestinian was setting off a bomb or otherwise perpetrating a terrorist attack.

As for the comparison to kissing an Israeli boyfriend in synagogue or driving through an Orthodox neighborhood on Shabbat – which are both arguably designed to offend the religious sensibilities of those around them – Silverstein is suggesting these would offend as much as a Jew’s presence offends a Muslim in France. That is an indictment on the belief system of those Muslims.

In other words, Silverstein confirms in this post his twisted thinking, which involves hatred of Israel, religious Jews and, apparently, a low opinion of Muslims.

Richard Silverstein And The Nazi-Israel Images http://www.israellycool.com/2015/02/16/richard-silverstein-and-the-nazi-israel-images/ http://www.israellycool.com/2015/02/16/richard-silverstein-and-the-nazi-israel-images/#comments Mon, 16 Feb 2015 10:13:14 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=73698 One of the hazards of the pathological Israel bashing trade is you attract antisemites.

Jut ask Richard Silverstein, who told off an antisemitic tweeter (yes, I mean antisemitic) for tweeting a Hitler-Bibi picture at him.

Could it be that Silverstein finds this kind of vile Nazi-Israeli comparison offensive?

Well, not exactly.

Right. Nothing offensive about it, it could just damage the cause.

You need to be a little more subtle, ya know.

Apparently, members of the hasbarafia saw the post and tipped off the Israeli border police (who my secret sauce confirms are operating in Seattle as part of their nefarious overseas instigation activities).

My wife, who was walking in front of me, caught it on camera.

It was an honest mistake, and a rare one. I am hardly ever fooled, which is an amazing achievement considering how often the hasbarafia and Ziobots are constantly trying to pull the wool over my eyes (and everyone knows, I prefer to wear my wool elsewhere).

Nevertheless, this does not change the fact that IDF soldiers are constantly doing this kind of thing for real.

Luckily for you, my secret sauce has sent me an authentic photo of one caught in the act.

Sprung!

Minimized the very real phenomenon of antisemitism.

And outright lied.

Besides being constantly exposed as a nasty, unreliable blogger, he has to live with himself. He also has been mistaken for a woman.

After trolling Alon Pinkas, former Israeli diplomat and current foreign affairs analyst for Fox Television, with this nasty tweet:

Pinkas responded thus:

One can presume Pinkas sincerely thought Silverstein was an old lady from the latter’s Twitter profile picture.

After all, even his fans have made the same mistake.

Richard Silverstein Caught In Yet Another Lie http://www.israellycool.com/2014/12/01/richard-silverstein-caught-in-yet-another-lie/ http://www.israellycool.com/2014/12/01/richard-silverstein-caught-in-yet-another-lie/#comments Mon, 01 Dec 2014 15:49:55 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=70433 In a comment to one of his latest rants against Israel, DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein states categorically in the comments that an Israeli Jewish bus driver killed a palestinian boy.

http://www.richardsilverstein.com/2014/11/26/58-of-israelis-support-firing-palestinian-workers-according-to-news-poll/#comment-598236

silverstein comment

Silverstein links to this report, which mentions only an Israeli bus driver, and nothing about him being Jewish (as the bottom commenter points out).

This is not a trivial point, considering the driver was an Israeli Arab!

Since Silverstein does not accept regular media outlets as sources – claiming they are pro-Israel and therefore unreliable – I’ll present him with this report from the Palestine News Network, which refers to the driver as “Palestinian” (the way they refer to Israeli Arabs).

Silverstein considers himself a journalist, and even has the temerity to go after real journalists like Matti Friedman.

But once again, he has been exposed as someone who does not do even the minimum of due diligence when posting something, and is guided not by the accuracy of a story but by the extent of damage it may do to Israel.
