One for Harry’s Place (not): Atzmon to eat Humble Pie…

Here’s one that you probably will not hear the Brown Sauce harp on about too much: a crushing defeat for the Atzmonites at the Palestine Solidarity Committee’s (PSC) Annual General Meeting (report by Tony Greenstein).

Always keen to try and smear pro-Palestinian activists with the AS charge, pro-Zionist advocacy groups, blogs and news outlets have been quick to point to ‘support’ for the PSC by known antisemite (and Holocaust Denial supporter) Gilad Atzmon, an unsavoury character the PSC did have some trouble distancing itself from. But Atzmon, whose main claim seems to be that Zionism is caused by ‘perfidious Jewishness’, will have to eat humble pie now that one of his Holocaust denying chums, Francis Clark-Lowes, has been permanently expelled from the PSC (appeals now also exhausted).

There’s much more in terms of victory for those who want to keep the PSC a strictly anti-racist movement, so read that report.

Will the Brown Sauce now at least recognise that associating the PSC with Atzmon and assorted low lifes no longer flies? My money is on HP pretending their nose is bleeding, ditto for the JC, Engage (the latter really should have a duty to report a victory against racism but I doubt if they will) and a small flotilla of 101 keyboard pro-Zionist oppression blogs and blogettes…

An Atzmonite’s antisemitic portrayal of Tony Greenstein:

Francis Clark-Lowes: can someone shove that glass of wine where the sun doesn’t shine? Please?

I’ve already seen your post. It only confirms what I wrote: you and Anthony Cooper are of course basically in the business of minimising PSC efforts to keep its house clean, in the same way that you’re in the business of minimising and ignoring deeply Islamophobic comments that appear almost continually on HP’s sewer threads, a blog you actively contribute to.

I posted promptly, and I think the headline was reasonably supportive. I am not sure that a *gushingly* positive response would have been particularly constructive. It could have looked - mischievous.
