His target? Republican nominee Ben Carson.

For meaning of “Oreo”, see here.

Not ok.

In fact, disgusting.

Israel Hater Mira Bar Hillel Posts Racist Slur Against Ethiopian Jew http://www.israellycool.com/2015/08/03/israel-hater-mira-bar-hillel-posts-racist-slur-against-ethiopian-jew/ http://www.israellycool.com/2015/08/03/israel-hater-mira-bar-hillel-posts-racist-slur-against-ethiopian-jew/#comments Mon, 03 Aug 2015 12:50:36 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=78798 Racism runs rampant among the Israel-hating crowd – and not just antisemitism.

For instance, you may recall Richard Silverstein’s racist attacks against African American Zionist Chloe Valdary.

Well, one of Silverstein’s supporters (and somewhat of a lookalike, minus the hair color), Mira bar Hillel, has proven the old addage turds of a feather flock together.

Yep, that really did happen.

I predict no apology. Just some epic hole digging.

Update: As I predicted.

mozes tweet

Leaving aside discussions around whether the tweet is actually racist, it is certainly dumb and offensive. Then again, so was calling Netanyahu “chickensh”t”. But I digress.

Israel-hating blogger Richard Silverstein has predictably pounced on this, in another attempt to discredit the Israeli government.

http://www.richardsilverstein.com/2015/06/22/israeli-oligarch-wife-of-likud-minister-calls-obama-weak-and-black

Many observers of this government have noted its extremism, intolerance, propensity to support violence, and racism. Judy Mozes has only reinforced that impression.

This is all very rich coming from Silverstein (see what I did there?).

And let’s not forget his own racist coffee-related “joke.”

Oops!

Israeli BDSHole Ronnie Barkan recently appeared on on Yediot Achronot’s TV news channel, interviewed by Atilla Somfalvi. Atilla saw right through Barkan’s disingenous responses and let him know in no uncertain terms.

Prompting at least one evil buffoon to kvetch.

Boo to the hoo.

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.

Richard Silverstein’s Israeli Memorial Day Tweet http://www.israellycool.com/2015/04/22/richard-silversteins-israeli-memorial-day-tweet/ http://www.israellycool.com/2015/04/22/richard-silversteins-israeli-memorial-day-tweet/#comments Wed, 22 Apr 2015 07:01:24 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=75941 True, nothing should surprise us about the extent of his Israel hatred, but I’ll just put this out there for the next time he claims he doesn’t support palestinian terrorism.

Let me guess. He’s explain this by saying he is merely comparing IDF soldiers to their fighters. But note he uses the term “resistance fighter” instead of “terrorist.”

Shame on this sad man and all those who agree with him.

Latest Blood Libel: Fake Israeli Police Brutality Edition http://www.israellycool.com/2015/03/09/latest-blood-libel-fake-israeli-police-brutality-edition/ http://www.israellycool.com/2015/03/09/latest-blood-libel-fake-israeli-police-brutality-edition/#comments Mon, 09 Mar 2015 13:51:46 +0000 http://www.israellycool.com/?p=74545 The following photo has been disseminated by the Israel hating crowd – including the ever (un)reliable Richard Silverstein – and is being passed off as Israeli policemen brutalizing a palestinian woman.


Silverstein also includes it in this post: http://www.richardsilverstein.com/2015/03/08/happy-international-womens-day-signed-your-friends-in-the-israeli-police/

As is typical with such blood libels against Israel (and Silverstein’s posts), something seemed amiss straight away.

For a start, the uniforms are not those worn by Israeli riot police, who look like this:

israeli police 1

Or this:

israeli police 2

The hats in the photo look similar to those of the regular Israeli police. But not quite.

israeli police 3

In fact, the hats worn in the photo seem to be from a kid’s costume!

costume 2

Because they are hats from a kid’s costume, the brims are too short, and the fake policemen seem to have extended them with real hats.

Then there’s also the matter of the gun in the photo not being Israeli police department issue.

In other words, this is fake.

Incidentally, Silverstein knew there were question marks regarding the authenticity of the photo and even asked for a source.

Despite not receiving a source nor proof it was authentic, he went ahead and posted it anyway. Because spreading the truth is not his agenda. Damaging Israel is.

Help counter the lies by sharing this post.

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.
