It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

More OMV Douchey Awards: The Yassir Arafat Prize (UPDATE)

[Apparently I have been graciously allowed to speak again at No Quarter.  Thank you O mighty potentate.  Susan has a post up now explaining that comments have mysteriously ended up in the spam filter, like the Bermuda Triangle of the Internet, and that our comments were released.  I saw the spam filter.  There were three, two were mine, a repeat because I wasn't sure what the hell was going on, and one that seemed to be Nigerian style bullshit.  And my comment on the thread in question is not there.  And a post I submitted with the Death to Juice Photo was deleted from the admin. page without being published.  Whoops!  My comments, and the award still stands.]

It's awards time at OMV.  The First Annual Douchey Awards have already begun to be handed out.  Our winners so far are Ryan Seacrest, and the genocidal Hamas lover from the pro-Palestinian two minutes hate fest in Manhattan last week.  Today we hand out a special prize.

The Yassir Arafat Memorial Lies and Obfuscation Prize for Outstanding Achievement in the Distribution of Lies and Disinformation goes to Larry Johnson and SusanUnPC at No Quarter.  Since the breakout of escalated hostilities between Israel and Hamas, Larry and Susan have bent over backwards perpetuating the classic anti-Israel memes:  Israel is indiscriminately killing civilians, Israel's response is "disproportionate," the media is pounding the constant pro-Israel drumbeat (a notion so utterly ridiculous it is barely worth mentioning), and Alan Dershowitz is an Israeli apologist and pseudo-intellectual.  Okay, so you can make a strong case that he's an Israel apologist, but pseudo-intellectual he is not.  Ironic that Johnson and Susan are banning people while criticizing Dershowitz, who has been an outspoken champion of American civil liberties.  Maybe he didn't give Johnson a sufficiently large enough kickback from his World Jewish Conspiracy take last year.  Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Perhaps the zenith of Johnson's bullshit, and what put him over the top for this year's Yassir Arafat prize, was his complete and total misrepresentation of the Etzel bombing of the King David Hotel.  Johnson attempted to make a corollary between the Irgun and Hamas, presenting the KDH bombing as evidence that Jews were terrorists that targeted civilians, and we just had to accept that.

Sorry Larry, but unlike the rabid, brainless zombies you have been attracting to your blog with your propaganda and disinformation campaign, some of us know the truth about the KDH, and that Etzel, though a terror group, was nothing like Hamas beyond the use of bombs.  What Johnson failed to mention was that as a policy, Etzel did not intentionally target civilians, while Hamas does, in violation of international law.  He failed to mention that the King David Hotel was in fact the headquarters of the British Mandatory Authority, and the British Military in the British controlled province of Palestine.  He also failed to mention that prior to the bombing at the KDH, Irgun operatives called the hotel switchboard, the offices of the Palestine Press newspaper, and the French Consulate to warn them of the bombing.  The British, in spite of the repeated warnings, failed to evacuate the building.  Ninety-one people died.  Hamas does not give Israelis the same courtesy when they blow up buses, cafes, discos, markets, malls, and any of the other exclusively civilian targets those ratfuckdouchebags blow up with their lunatic homicide bombers.  What draws my ire is that Johnson knows all this and intentionally withheld this information to make a propaganda point.  And if he didn't have that information than he is sorely misinformed and should stop making any comments on the current situation as misinformation and obfuscation is the last thing that is needed when both sides in this conflict are notorious liars, with actual truth being hard to discern much of the time.

Johnson and SusanUnPC are coming off as radical Islamist apologists, who claim to have the security interests of the United States at heart (the bullshit is flying so hard and fast, that despite his protestations that he is a supporter of Israel, it is becoming increasingly impossible to be able know how that could possibly be true).  Instead they are sending out blatant disinformation about Israel's actions in Gaza, and Israeli history, to fan the flames of public opinion in a conflict that desperately needs to be resolved so that the Palestinians and Israelis can finally stop living in a state of constant post traumatic stress, war, and suffering.  

Backed by Iran, Hamas, like Hezbullah, wishes to see a worldwide Islamic caliphate.  All infidels convert or die.  Y'all get back to me about how serving their propaganda machine is in the national security interests of the United States.  That oughta be a mind bender.  Perhaps you're operating under the misguided Ron Paul notion that if we just appease the radicals and Al-Qaeda, they'll just leave us alone.

Johnson's hypocritical bullshit was a strong test for the Douchiak 800o Hypocrisy Meter, but it handled the NQ ratfucking just fine.

And the price I've paid for my dissent against the all knowing, all seeing brainiacs at No Quarter is that I have been banned from commenting.  A very glorious distinction for someone who got asked to be a writer for the blog.  I am yet another Jew who was shrouded at No Quarter for speaking out about Larry Johnson's obvious obfuscation of the facts, and attempting to get Johnson to steer the conversation to the heart of the matter: how to achieve peace and security for the Arabs and Jews.  Surely it's not going to be accomplished by lying and propaganda.  That tactic hasn't worked for Israel or Hamas either.

Though I have been accused of censoring here recently, I have banned or deleted no one that addresses the topic at hand, and is not an overtly hostile doucheratbag spewing lies and propaganda, regardless of which side of the security fence they fall.  In fact, no one has been banned here since the Pamperbot purge.  Of course if you are a douche and you comment here I reserve the right to point out your hypocritical doucheness.  The war on hypocrisy demands it.

Tomorrow we'll be applying a little truth serum to Johnson's bullshit assertions regarding what Israel "should have done."

So congratulations No Quarter on your prize.  You've earned it.  Choke on it.

First of all, a belated Happy New Year to you, shtueymon. I saw how you attempted to ameliorate the situation and now you have seen the reality of it. What happened at NQ was akin to what happened at TM, but Larry has a heck of a lot more to say and a mysterious and troubling agenda beyond simple self-interest, it appears. It is now an obsession with him. I proposed to camille that we vote for the opposition, possibly savagepolitics, if they are still sane (you never know these days), so as to prevent any rise to the insanity. Of course, I doubt that NQ will win anyway.
Bonne Annee!

Well, well, one day and back on the next. Are you sure you want to keep writing for people that have the same amount of conviction as Pampers?

I RARELY go to NQ anymore and will not be voting for them.

Oh, I have no plans to write for those fuckers any more. That doesn't mean I won't be sticking it in their eye from time to time though.

In the past few weeks NQ introduced Al Jazeera as one of their major news sources. In your opinion, is Al Jazeera a good source of news, esp. regarding the Middle East and Israel?


Shtuey said...

I think at best Al Jazeera operates from a POV of extreme bias. Does anyone doubt that? Objectivity is not exactly AJ's strong suit when it comes to Israel.

Frankly I do not feel there are any real credible journalistic sources on this conflict. The foreign press has traditionally been biased against Israel, as is the American media, with the exception of FOX News, which isn't exactly fair and balanced on this subject, or others. Releases from Hamas are pure propaganda, and the Israeli government is notorious for censoring information. There simply is no verifiable truth on much of this. It is hard to know what to believe. When the rockets stop, and the smoke clears we'll see what happens. The only thing we can know for sure is that war is war and peace is peace. Right now we have war.

NQ's use of Al Jazeera is a statement of its bias, period.

The truth I know is this: Hamas is dedicated by its religious conviction, and its charter, to the destruction of Israel. People on both sides have been killed, and will continue to be killed. Hamas kidnapped Gilad Shalit, in violation of international law. Hamas intentionally targets civilians against international law.

All sides have committed violations of human rights, but only Israel's are reported. Everyone has blood on its hands. The cheerleaders for all sides need to accept the culpability of their chosen team. Until this happens there will be no resolution.

If people want peace between Israel and the Palestinians then the flame fanning needs to stop. Human rights are human rights. Those rights, for Jews and Arabs must be defended with equal vehemence by the world community. So far this has not happened.

Political bodies cannot be counted on, as they are the reason the war continues. The musicians are going to have to make the peace. But first, the rockets on both sides must stop falling...permanently.
