Why anti-Zionism is not the same as antisemitism

Following the great news that footballer Nicolas Anelka has come out in solidarity with the anti-Zionist freedom fighting French comedian Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, the Zionists who dominate the media and British football are mounting a campaign to censure Anelka. They claim that the reverse Nazi salute (known in France as ‘la quenelle') that he used - and which was pioneered by M'bala as part of his legitimate "Death to all Zionists in the world" campaign is 'antisemitic' - just because antisemites like to be photographed using the salute at Auschwitz and other places where Jews have been murdered.

Every sane 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.So following on from my previous posts (the boycott campaign to counter the ludicrous accusation that the boycoot Israel campaign is in any way similar to the Nazi boycott of Jews, and what we leftists believe to boycott the ludicrous accusation that leftists have inconsistent and hypocritical views about Israel) I have produced a chart below which obviously confirms that anti-Zionism and antisemitism have absolutely nothing in common.

Another great anti-Zionist demonstration: the apartheid Thames Barrier

The Church's life-size replica of the hated Zionist Thames Barrier

Fantastic news: Following on from St James’ Church in Piccadilly constructing a replica of the Zionist apartheid wall the nearby St John's church has unveiled its "Tear down the Zionist apartheid Thames Barrier". Here is the brave statement by the St John’s Church Leicester Square 
In solidarity with our Palestinian brethren at Christmas time, we at the St John’s Church Leicester Square are delighted to unveil an impressive act of solidarity: a life-size replica of the hated, apartheid Zionist Thames Barrier. As everybody is aware, the Thames Barrier was erected by the so-called “British Government” of Margaret Thatcher (but under direct Zionist control) 30 years ago. The British Zionists laughingly claim that the Thames Barrier is a ‘security’ barrier to protect London from flooding during high tides. But everybody knows that the barrier was built specifically to fence in the entire Muslim population of Europe. This includes some 285 million Palestinian refugees who form the remnant of the 250 million Palestinians brutally massacred by the Zionists in one day alone in 1967***.  Anybody who has seen this brutal monstrosity close up when it is raised will have witnessed the heartbreaking scenes of Palestinian refugees and other Muslims being brutally stopped from reaching London along the River Thames.  This is as much a breach of the Palestinians' human rights as the hated Zionist wall, which restricts the inalienable rights of Palestinians to commit suicide bombings against pizza parlours filled with Zionist children.
Our replica of the Thames Barrier took 16 years to build at a cost of just 439 billion pounds, and was funded voluntarily by UK and EU taxpayers through the financing of two charities: the Christian charity “Feed the Gaza Poor” and the Muslim Charity “Jihad against Jews”. On the 12th day of Christmas (6 January 2014) the barrier will be torn down and destroyed as an act of hopeful symbolism.  In response to those Zionists who question why the money was not spent on actually helping Palestinians, we can assure the world that there is no better way to help the Palestinians than to put on special shows in central London at Christmas time demanding the end of the Zionist state. In any case the Palestinians already get sufficient funds from the UK and EU to carry out their valiant armed struggle.  And to those ignorant Zionists who question why a Church is supporting the Palestinian armed struggle at Christmas time when Christians are being “massacred by Muslims” throughout the Middle East, Far East and Africa we say that those actions are the natural response to the Zionist occupation as exemplified by the Thames Barrier. In any case, set against the Zionist crimes the Muslim persecution and murder of Christians (in Syria, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Algeria, Lebanon, Libya, Afghanistan, Turkey, Nigeria, Kenya, Central African Republic, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Philipines, Gaza, Bethlehem and other PA controlled areas) is of no significance at all and must therefore be completely ignored by all true Christians.

The importance of the campaign to boycott Israel

While the campaign to boycott the Zionist entity gathers momentum, I have noticed that some Zionists are attempting to discredit the campaign by claiming tha there are similarities between this boycott  campaign and the Nazi boycott of Jews in the 1930s. As the following table makes clear there is absolutely no basis for arguing that these boycott campaigns are in any way similar.

More academic boycotts in solidarity with the Palestinians

Just a couple of days ago I was delighted to report the great news that the American Studies Society (ASS), had voted in favour of an academic boycott of Israel, It now truns out that America’s largest union of university professors – the Council of Research and Academic Professionals (CRAP) which had long ago agreed to boycott Israel, has voted to extend the boycott to America and hence will be boycotting itself. I regard this as excellent solidarity with the Palestinian cause.

Over 80% of the Union’s members took part in the vote, with a massive 13 voting in favour and only 11 voting against. This came after an impassioned plea by CRAP member Professor Angela Ayers-Davis who said:
Since we are boycotting Israel as a racist, colonial, warmongering, apartheid state, it is .only fair that we do the same to America. After all, America is illegally occupying an entire continent belonging to the indigenous Native Indian population and more recently Puerta Rico and Hawaii as well as the Mexican land of Texas and California. America is also fighting a racist, illegal, colonial war against Islam in many countries. And of course America has a system of apartheid against its black citizens. 
The CRAP President, Professor Ivor Loudmouth, eloquently laid out the obligations for professors and the consequences of the boycott:
Since we must boycott all academics in America, we must cease all communication between ourselves and our students. We are therefore arranging for the permanent shut-down of all American universities until the occupation, apartheid and all foreign wars end. Moreover, since the boycott obviously applies to all cultural and social interactions this also means that any professors who are married to each other must get divorced immediately. Since we are also encouraging non-academics to observe the boycott those professors who have non-academic partners should also ask their partners – and indeed all other family members - to cease speaking with them. For the sake of optimal family cohesion we recommend that professors remove themselves entirely from the family home and live in isolation. Professors will still be able to carry out their own unfunded independent research. However, whereas in the past they have been able to publish their work in journals run by themselves or their friends, they will now only be able to submit their articles to themselves and they must be rejected on the grounds of the boycott.  CRAP will provide a template for self-rejection letters.
Obviously, the shut down of all American Universities will have an impact on students. In particular, and most disturbingly, they will no longer be able to spend 4 years being indoctrinated with anti-Israel, anti-Western propaganda. President Loudmouth admitted this was one of the major drawbacks of the boycott, but to counter this he said that professors will be allowed to continue their propaganda work in the main stream media since that work never did have any connection to their academic expertise.

In a parallel move the main British academic union – the Federation of Academics Researchers Teachers and Scientists (FARTS) - which had led the way in boycotting Israel, has also voted to extend the boycott to itself. The FARTS President, Professor Andy Semite, announced
Since we are rightly boycotting Israel as a racist, colonial, warmongering, apartheid state, it is only fair that we do the same to Britain. After all Britain is still illegally occupying most commonwealth countries, not to mention Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands. Britain is also fighting a racist, illegal, colonial war against Islam in many countries. And of course Britain has a system of apartheid against its immigrant minorities.
Since the academic unions in most other Western countries are expected to follow suit, another potential drawback will be the shut down of all of the world’s leading academic journals. However, the EU Foreign Affairs Minister Baroness Catherine Ashton noted, there was a major silver lining in this outcome, stating:
This move is to be welcomed because it will finally end the corrupt academic practise whereby superb journals based in third world countries (such as “The Iranian journal of peace studies”, “The Afghan journal of religious tolerance”, and “The North Korean Journal of Economics”) were largely ignored.
Many other scholars - including Professor Stephen Hawking - also pointed out that the 58 Islamic states (none of which would ever have reason to boycott themselves since they are never involved in any aggressive acts and have an impeccable record of tolerance of religious minorities) will finally be recognized for their outstanding achievements in science, engineering and the law. When asked by a reporter to name some of these outstanding achievements Hawking replied that he believed they had disappeared into one of the black holes he had recently observed.
