Irish sports journalist
has a fanatic hatred of Israel
for some reason.
Personal abuse, libel, calling me racist, targeting my job.
This is what he does instead of debating.
I had to block him because of his behaviour.
In Feb 2014
I debated him for a bit.
It started out as above.
Frankly, his tweet is pretty creepy.
A bit like people who "sum up" America with a photo of some evangelical megachurch.
The debate went ok for a while, but then
Ewan MacKenna started hurling
abuse and libel.
He libels me as "racist"
because I defend Israel.
I lost interest in debating him after that.
Debate kicked off again in May 2018
in response to an
I suppose it's my fault for tagging him in.
There was debate for a short time, but it did not take long before MacKenna got into
some fairly sad abuse.
There was a lot more like this, as he tried to "imagine" my life.
It is easier than debating I guess.

Him targeting my job is based on an error
What is hilarious is that this angry fellow targeting my job
is actually based on an error
to the evidence that
one of the journalists killed in the Gaza fence riots, Ahmed Abu Hussein,
was a PFLP terrorist.
"the PFLP’s military wing issued formal death notices for him;
at his funeral red PFLP flags were carried;
and the Ahmed Abu Hussein’s Facebook page posted notices glorifying the PFLP".
- MacKenna then confuses Ahmed Abu Hussein (who was not married) with
another journalist killed in the riots, who was the
father of a 15-month-old (apparently not 3 year old) son.
- MacKenna says
he knew Yaser Murtaja,
so that is why he goes crazy.
But the whole thing is based on his lack of reading skills!
Maybe he would have targeted my job anyway. He seems like that kind of person.
But this complaint at least is just based on his error.
