Israel-Hater Richard Silverstein Humiliates Himself Yet Again
Regular readers will know that I like to rip pathological Israel hater Richard Silverstein. Perhaps it is the fact he has spread more libels about me than I can even count. Or perhaps it is because he provides so much material – low hanging fruit(cake) if you will.
Either way, he has recently been so unhinged – at least more than his (ab)normal self – that I cannot resist posting.
Don’t Mess with The Mossad!
Remember when he got fooled by the fake Mossad Twitter account? Well, he does, and he has made it his business to go after the person responsible, in that case a hilarious Canadian oleh to Israel. The problem is, he can’t quit while he is behind.
After Dicky insulted him..
.@TheMossadIL account is written by a far-right Canadian immigrant-settler. It's not only unfunny. It's puerile.

Mr Mossad pointed out an inconvenient truth
to which Dicky responded
Proof can be a damn inconvenient thing!
By the way, the person Dicky calls a settler lives in a mainstream Israeli city. Which means Dicky sees all of Israel as illegitimate. Oops!
The Bigot Strikes Again

Again, he’s decided to
quit while he’s ahead continue while’s he’s behind.
For the record:
President Barack Obama has signed legislation that will make the words “Negro” and “Oriental” things of the past, striking the racially-charged terms from federal law.
In a rare instance of bipartisan cooperation, the measure passed easily through Republican-controlled House and received unanimous support in the Senate, The Hill reports.
The law targets two anti-discrimination areas of US law that use antiquated language to describe racial or ethnic groups.
The term “Negro” was used widely in the US until the civil rights era of the 1950s and 1960s, when the movement’s leaders said they found it problematic because it evoked the subjugation that black Americans were forced to endure, from slavery to segregation. Most notably, Malcolm X took a stand against the term, saying he preferred “black” or “Afro-American.”
Six years ago, when the United States Census Bureau announced that the term Negro would be included in the 2010 census, people were upset. But Erin Aubry Kaplan, a writer and journalist, wrote in an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times that there was a generational divide when it came to attitudes toward the term. The Census Bureau insisted that 50,000 older black Americans identified themselves as “Negro” on a previous census.
“I get why,” Kaplan wrote. “Though it was the accepted term until the late ’60s, for those born after that, ‘Negro’ is something they never answered to, a word that sounds only slightly less incendiary than ‘nigger.’
“Its taint goes back to slavery, when Southerners paternalistically referred to even free blacks as ‘our negroes,'” Kaplan added.
Fluent in Hebrew
Dicky repeats his oft-repeated claim
Yup. Speak fluent Hebrew. Read thousands of articles each year in Hebrew. Communicate with scores of Israeli sources virtually every day. Next question? https://t.co/sOoptNcnYH
