Why anti-Zionism has nothing to do with antisemitism

Every sensible person knows that, while antisemitism is a very bad thing, anti-Zionism is a very good thing and is the natural position adopted by any good, liberal, enlightened person.

Yet, incredibly, some Zionists actually try to claim that anti-Zionism is the same as antisemitism!!!! That's how unhinged they are!!!!!  Last week I even had one Jew Zionist call me an antisemite after I unleashed my brilliant "All Zionists must be obliterated from the face of the earth" banner at the fantastic Gaza Solidarity Smash the Jewish State demonstration. I now plan to sue that Zionist and I am going to use the chart below which so obviously confirms that anti-Zionism and antisemitism have absolutely nothing in common.

Confronting the ludicrous Zionist claim that leftists are similar to Islamists

One of the most ludicrous claims made by Zionists against liberals and progressives like me is that somehow we share the same beliefs as Islamists. While I make no excuses for standing firm with my Islamic friends against the scourge of Islamaphobia (which along with Zionism and global warming are the most catastrophic evils the world has ever faced) and for standing firm with my Islamic friends against Western imperialism, as the following table shows there is clearly nothing else in common between us and the Islamists.

Exclusive: EU Commissioner explains why Hamas is no longer considered a terrorist organisation

Wonderful news today that the EU has decided to remove the peace-loving freedom fighters of Hamas from the list of designated terrorist organisations. The EU Commissioner Mr Eichate DeJuz (who has special responsibility for Middle East Affairs) today issued the following superb statement in response to ZioNazi Benjamin Netanyahu's criticism of the EU decision.
The Zionist leader has questioned why Hamas is no longer considered a terrorist organisation while ISIS remains on the list. We are frankly insulted by such a question because the differences between ISIS and Hamas are enormous.
ISIS is a Sunni Islamist supremacist anti-Semitic organisation that practises brutal sadistic Sharia repression over all citizens under its control, indiscriminately targets and murders civilians, believes all non-Muslims and women are inferior and seeks a world-wide caliphate governed by Sharia law. 
On the other hand Hamas is a Sunni Islamist supremacist anti-Semitic organisation that practises brutal sadistic Sharia repression over all citizens under its control, indiscriminately targets and murders civilians, believes all non-Muslims and women are inferior and seeks a world-wide caliphate governed by Sharia law. Most importantly Hamas has the support of all progessive thinkers in the West and for the time being restricts its murder mainly to Jews and its political opponents.

The excellent "Jews for Justice for Palestinians"

Screenshot of JfJfP Facebook Book (taken 15 Dec 2014 just in case they change it as a result of this story)

Although I am not a Jew I am proud to call myself a friend of "Jews for Justice for Palestinians" (JfJfP)**. They are a wonderful group of Zionist haters with tenuous (and in some cases no) links to Judaism (maybe I can just join them?). Like their sister organisation the Palestine Solidarity Campaign  the word Palestine is merely used as a ploy;  we cannot let the Zionist controlled media know that their only objective is - quite rightly - the destruction of the Zionist state and everything they do is geared towards that noble objective.

How apt then that the banner photo for their facebook site is, like the organisation itself, a marvellous ploy to deceive the Zionists into thinking we might be interested in peace with them! It is the iconic photo that was exposed last week as a staged fake. The two boys in the photo, taken by American photojournalist Ricki Rosen are both Z|ionists from Jerusalem. Quite rightly no Arab boy would be photographed with a Zionist settler.

** In fact, I am thinking of creating a new organisation called Non-Jews for Jews for Justice for Palestinians (NJfJfJfP).
