The Day In Israel: Wed May 13th, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

The Vatican has done an about face and admitted that the pope had worn a brown shirt after all, albeit reluctantly.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

11:00PM: Here’s on Brendon O’Connell’s arrest:

A Man who allegedly posted anti-semitic videos on the website YouTube has been charged with attempting to incite racial animosity and racial harassment.

Police said the 39-year-old Perth man is only the second person to be charged under racial vilification laws introduced by Western Australia’s previous Labor Government four years ago.

A police spokesman said the man had been bailed ahead of a court appearance on the charge, which carries a maximum penalty of 14 years’ jail.

He is understood to have been arrested by officers from WA’s intelligence investigation unit yesterday, after posting video of himself making anti-Semitic comments in front of Perth’s Bell Tower and a South Perth supermarket.

Western Australia’s racial vilification laws took effect in May 2005 after white supremacists had carried out a number of attacks in Perth.


The charging of the Perth man in connection with the anti-semitic video has been welcomed by Perth’s Jewish community, estimated to number about 9000.

Keith Shilkin, president of the WA Jewish Community Council, said the video had “swept through the community, causing great concern”.

“Children at the Carmel Jewish day school have had counselling sessions but we have had close liaisons with the police, who became quickly aware of the situation,” Mr Shilkin told the website.

“The man has been a serial pest but the community was not overtly aware of him.”

The israelforum website, known as J-Wire, said the man, who was “very articulate”, had taken video of a demonstration by Friends of Palestine outside an IGA supermarket in South Perth which sold Israeli jaffa oranges.

“(The man) told his viewers that he was hoping to find some Jews at the scene and he did. He videoed himself harassing two young Jewish men and creating an argumentative situation,” J-Wire said.

The West Australian website said the video carried the remarks: “I head up to Parliament House to ask how it is Jewish supremacism has continued unabated for 250 years to the point where to speak of it warrants abuse, threats, job loss and even jail for those that dare question the new religion of holocaustianity.”

J-Wire said the leader of Friends of Palestine had distanced the group from the video and its maker.

“Shilkin told J-Wire that whereas the Friends of Palestine had been very outspoken on their views of Israel and its politics, they had not entered into any anti-Jewish propaganda and had been of no trouble to the local community,” it said.

I ask that my readers from the Perth Jewish community (you know who you are) please raise the important point to the authorities that O’Connell admitted to battery on the video I posted last week (now taken offline). They should not rely solely on racial vilification.

I would also suggest the young man who was hit by O’Connell come forward and report this battery if he hasn’t already.

10:20PM: Here’s Sheikh Taiseer al-Tamimi, the palestinian sheik who rudely interrupted the pope with his venom a few days ago.

10:13PM: Walking on thin ice? “Yoko Ono” was reportedly arrested leaving Gaza.

6:23PM: Yet more moral equivocation from the pope.

Pope Benedict XVI on Wednesday branded the West Bank separation fence as a symbol of “stalemate” between Israel and the Palestinians, urging both sides to break a “spiral of violence”.

“Towering over us, as we gather here this afternoon, is a stark reminder of the stalemate that relations between Israelis and Palestinians seem to have reached – the wall,” he said standing by the fence at a refugee camp in Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus.

“How we earnestly pray for an end to the hostilities that have caused this wall to be built.”

The fence was built to help protect innocent Israelis against terrorists. It is not a reminder “of the stalemate that relations between Israelis and palestinians seem to have reached,” but rather a reminder of the brutal tactics employed by the palestinians to achieve their goal of eradicating the Jewish state of Israel.

6:18PM: Meanwhile, in other Australian anti-Semite news:

An Australian who has denied the Holocaust occurred was sentenced Wednesday to three months in prison for defying an order to stop publishing anti-Semitic material on his Web site.

Fredrick Toben remained free after the sentencing, however, because the judge gave him two weeks to lodge an appeal.

Justice Bruce Lander of the Federal Court found Toben, 65, guilty of 24 counts of contempt of a 2002 court ruling that barred him from publishing anti-Semitic material on the Web site of his organization, the Adelaide Institute.

The material found to be in breach of the order included suggestions the Holocaust did not happen, that questioned whether there were gas chambers at the Auschwitz death camp, and that challenged the intelligence of Jews who questioned Holocaust deniers’ beliefs.


WA man accused of anti-Jew YouTube posts

A 39-year-old Perth man has been charged under Western Australia’s racial vilification laws in relation to a series of videos posted on the internet website YouTube.

It is alleged Maylands resident Brendon O’Connell shot video while making anti-Semitic comments in front of Perth’s Bell Tower and a South Perth supermarket.

O’Connell has been charged with conduct intended to incite racial animosity or racist harassment.

It is believed he is only the second person to be charged under the laws, which were introduced by the previous state government.

The maximum penalty for the offence is 14 years’ jail.

Thanks once again to anon for the link.

2:28PM: Another update on O’Connell, this time from MOAD (Mum of Aussie Dave):

GOOD NEWS!  Brendan O’Connell has been charged by the Morley Police.. he was arrested in Maylands… they even showed him on the news inciting his hateful remarks towards the Jewish Community.. he could get up to 14 years in the slammer, with the new laws.

YAAAAAAAAAAAAY  Justice shall prevail.  Hope he can get a lawyer, willing to plead “not guilty!”  That’s right, all the good lawyers are Jewish! 🙂

2:27PM: BREAKING NEWS: Anon writes an update on Brendon O’Connell in the comments:

Update: A very good source says that yes, he’s been charged under WA’s racial vilification statutes. His home in Maylands was searched as well.

I’m glad you shone that light on him, Aussie Dave. Good work.

I am not sure if the exposure given to O’Connell’s conduct on the blogs of Andrew Bolt and Tim Blair – which linked to my post on the subject – was responsible for  bringing him to the  attention of the relevant authorities, but it certainly wouldn’t have hurt. So well done to those of you who alerted Andrew and Tim to my post.

Here’s hoping our racist friend learns the error of his ways. Behind bars.

2:20PM: Over at Tim Blair’s blog, the convener of Friends of Palestine WA has dissociated himself from anti-Semite Brendon O’Connell (who made it to Tim’s blog because of my blog post here)

Dear Mr Blair,

I am the convener of Friends of Palestine WA, the organisation responsible for the protest outside South Perth IGA which was referred to in the offending video by Brendon O’Connell you posted on your blog site.

Let me take this opportunity to tell you plainly and simply: Friends of Palestine WA is totally and utterly opposed to any and all forms of racism. We take a very dim view indeed of anyone voicing anti-Semitic views who purports to be either speaking or writing on our behalf. Any member of our executive committee found to be doing so will be summarily expelled from our ranks. Any individual found to be doing so will be barred from participating in our activities. That is why the individual in question, Brendon O’Connell, was immediately removed from our mailing list after we had the opportunity to view his video and hear the despicable opinions expressed therein.

Given members of Friends of Palestine WA are shown and identified in the video in question, we feel it is incumbent on you to point out to your readers that we as an organisation cannot be held responsible for the racist views expressed by a rogue individual who unfortunately happened to attend one of our protests.

Furthermore, we feel it is incumbent on you to make it known to your readers that we are unequivocally opposed to the vile racist views expressed by Mr O’Connell in his execrable video.

Yours sincerely
Alex Whisson
Friends of Palestine WA

But the real excitement is in the comments, where Tim’s readers rip Whisson and O’Connell himself makes a guest appearance.

Hello all.

Brendon O’Connell here.

I have NEVER had ANYTHING to do with “Friends Of Palestine”. EVER.

Alex was furious with me. And rightly so. But in the end I do not put up with lying snakes who try to say they have a right to throw out people from a land they have inhabited for 1300 years continuously. Did the little snake I slapped (after he tried to knock my camera out of my hand) look like a “semite”? He looks like a mix of Polish/Romanian stock to me with about as much “genetic ties” to Palestine as an eskimo. These people make me sick.

I spoke with Alex Whisson for 5 minutes and he pointed out that the fruit have been mislabeled. I made it perfectly clear I had ZERO to do with The Friends Of Palestine but does that stop the “lying jew”? Of course not. The jew has made a religion out of lying and sin – it’s called Rabbinic Pharisaic Judaism and they send their little satans spawn to Yeshiva Acadamies and Day Schools where they can learn to lie and cheat and steal from the Gentiles all they like.

I find it extremely humorous that people keep calling me a “racist” for pointing out that “J-E-W-S” are the ONLY religion which has as it’s central tenant that they are a “race” of “Chosen People” who are inherently “superior” to the “Goy”. From this “base” we get the rambling racist and sexually perverse filth of the “Babylonian Talmud” and books of jewish mysticism like the Zohar where (as ONE example) Rabbi Schneerson claims EXPLICITLY that…”The best of the Gentiles should be killed”. So let me get this right – for pointing out these people are homicidal maniacs with a religion of homicide, ethnic cleansing, infanticide “I” am a “racist”? Truly, we are on into the world of the “macabre” 😀

My views are IDENTICAL with those of the Russian, Serbian, Armenian and Greek Orthodox Christian Churches where jews are considered nothing but lying, cheating and arrogant fools – totally brainwashed and a danger to the entire planet.

In Occupied Palestine the Orthodox Faithful are beaten, abused and spat at by jews. There windows are broken. Churches desecrated and where are the media reports? In Occupied Palestine it is ILLEGAL to hand out a Bible and Bibles are regularly burnt in Yeshiva Acadamies for fun with the Rabbi’s approval.

jews do everything they can to attach themselves to Christ by calling us collectively “judeo Christians” when we are no such thing. “judaism” itself consider Christ the greatest tragedy to ever occur to them. In the Babylonian Talmud Christ is called a “bastard” and Blessed Mary a “whore”. Christ is referred to as “boiling in hot excrement in hell”. THIS is from the HOLIEST book of the jews! They do not refer to the Tanakh (Old Testament) they refer to the “Rabbinical Commentaries” contained in the Talmud and books of the Zohar where the rabbi’s even claim to beat God in a debate! These people are nuts. And when you point out there filth and depravity and blasphemy you are a “racist”, you are a “hater” when the greatest racists and greatest haters that have ever walked this earth are “jews”.

Lets debate! I have GIANT LIST of Talmud quotes from the books of the Mishna and Gemmara. Not to mention the utterly homicidal and virtual witch craft based books of the Kabala. My quotes are NOT the “special” ones they release so that non cult members will not read them. I draw from the unesculpated Steinzalts edition from the University of Chicago. Also the EXCELLENT book just released by Michael Hoffman – “Judaism Discovered” where TRUE TANAKH JEWS like the Karaites give the goods on what jews REALLY think and say behind closed doors.

Since pointing out their own quotes and traditions online I have received nothing but threats and bullying. My house has been broken into numerous times, cars vandalized and even brake lines cut. This is how the jew operates. He cannot debate because if he does the jig is up! All I have to do is repeat back to them what is contained within their traditions and culture and holy books. Not to mention their racist and homicidal experiment in Palestine.

So then…lets pary. Bring your BEST debaters. I’m ready. Fly me over – lets get on stage and I am going to repeat for all to hear the racist, filthy and disgustingly perverse doctrines contained within this group of perpetual professional lyers, theives and murderers. They were murderers from the beginning. They have made a religion of it and we can all talk about Hannah Kasher, a CONTEMPORARY Israeli Academic who stated in 2000 that the Palestinians were “Amalek” and that women and children were FAIR GAME in the fight! THAT is from a contemporary Israeli Academic.

So…”I” am a “racist” for pointing out these vipers racist and disgusting religious doctrines that spread out into their supposed secular, mainstream University faculty?

The problem is not “zionism”. The problem is “judaism”. A racist homicidal cult that pretends it is a religion of “wisdom” and “tolerance”.

Just WHO are the racist haters here?

10:12AM: The pope has told PA president Mahmoud Abbas that the palestinians deserve a sovereign palestinian homeland.

I assume he’s not talking from an ethical or moral standpoint, because even assuming they had such a right, they would have forfeited it due to their rampant terrorism.

6:17AM: Today’s anti-Semitism on an Egyptian-Saudi Koran-Memorization Channel is brought to you by MEMRI.

6:10AM: The IDF has recently begun constructing a barrier along part of the border with Egypt, because of concern that Hamas and Islamic Jihad terrorists will step up their efforts to cross into the Sinai Desert and then traverse this porous border while the border with Gaza is hermetically sealed.

6:04AM: Israel has reportedly handed over to UNIFIL (more) maps of where it dropped cluster bombs in Lebanon during the second Lebanon War in 2006.

5:52AM: Earlier this week, Lebanese police displayed sophisticated devices they said we used to spy on Hizbullah, including a water cooler fitted with sensors to survey the landscape, a car battery charger used to store and transmit data and USB flash drives containing detailed maps of Lebanon.

This comes after Lebanese authorities said they arrested at least 14 suspected palestinian and Lebanese spies for Israel.

Meanwhile, here are some of the suspected Zionist Gadgets of Death.TM
