A fresh new deployment of the A-word. Jay Currie has proof that Julian Assange is—you guessed it—an anti-Semite! This all-purpose smear is to be found in the most-sued publication in Great Britain’s history, Private Eye, retailed by the New York Times.
Assange is not amused:
In the Twitter feed, Mr. Assange said that “in particular” the Private Eye report that he believed in a ” ‘Jewish conspiracy’ is false, in spirit and in word. It is serious and upsetting. Rather than correct a smear, Mr. Hislop has tried to justify one smear with another.”
“That he has a reputation for this, and is famed to have received more libel suits in the U.K. than any other journalist as a result, does not mean that it is right,” Mr. Assange’s statement said. “WikiLeaks promotes the ideal of ‘scientific journalism’ — where the underlying evidence of all articles is available to the reader precisely in order to avoid these type of distortions. We treasure our strong Jewish support and staff, just as we treasure the support from pan-Arab democracy activists and others who share our hope for a just world.”
Currie must have been expecting trouble from the bright side, because he has closed comments.* In any case, the pile-on continues. Throw enough mud, as they say, and some is sure to stick. Wash your hands, Jay.
Arnie Lemaire on duty! The Singed Minge likes to stalk protests and look for “gotcha” moments, which he gleefully posts as further proof of the International Islamic Conspiracy (cf. Protocols of the Learned Mullahs of Dar al-Islam).
A demonstration in favour of the Libyan rebellion attracted him, for some reason. But this time the tables were turned:
Can’t wait till the movie comes out. Maybe Fred Litwin will screen it at the National Gallery.
Every morning I wake up smiling, because I know we are simply better than these people. Have a good Wednesday, comrades!
