Richard Silverstein Must Be Smoking the Ganja

Anti-Israel DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein sees himself as some kind of reliable expert on all matters Middle East in general. But as I have shown on countless occasions, he is so unreliable, he can’t even trust himself.

In the latest example , El Doucherino today tweeted the following:

Which links to this story. From 2015.

Clearly, Dicky somehow came across this old story and, licking his chops, could not help himself and tweeted it out, oblivious to the fact that it is the Richard Silverstein of news (very old).

He obviously also didn’t get the memo regarding what happened next.

Spain’s foreign ministry has criticized Benicàssim’s Rototom Sunsplash after the reggae festival kicked Matisyahu off their bill for refusing to declare his support for Palestine. “Imposing a public declaration [from Matisyahu] puts into question the principles of non-discrimination on which all plural and diverse societies are based,” Spanish foreign ministry officials said in a statement Tuesday, adding that Rototom’s actions on behalf of the BDS movement were “anti-Semitic.”

However, on Wednesday, Rototom organizers issued a statement admitting that they had made a “mistake” and offered Matisyahu his August 22nd slot back. “Rototom Sunsplash rejects anti-Semitism and any form of discrimination towards the Jewish community; we respect both their culture as religious beliefs and we sincerely apologize for what has occurred,” the statement read. “Rototom Sunsplash would like to publicly apologize to Matisyahu for having canceled his concert and invite him to perform at the festival next Saturday 22 August, as was initially programmed in the lineup.”

Maybe one day Silverstein will get something right.
