Frank McDonald, 8 Nov 2015, weeps for an injured female terrorist
tried to kill an Israeli security guard.
He complains that Israeli security do not immediately rush to treat her wounds after she is shot.
(Because she might be wearing explosives.)
Don't worry, Frank, she lived.
Frank McDonald, 2 Jan 2016, thinks he has worked out the secret code that indicates the
Tel Aviv shooter
is an Israeli Jew.
Unfortunately for him, the shooter turned out to be an
Israeli Arab Muslim
who was motivated by "a jihadist ideology".
Note how McDonald doesn't bat an eyelid at the appearance of notorious
in his timeline.
What the hell kind of people is he hanging out with on Twitter?
on 11 Jan 2014
and we started a terrific Twitter firestorm from Israel supporters.
Celebrating a Jewish prime minister's death
and comparing the Holocaust to trivial things:
You have to expect some kind of response.
On Gaza being like Warsaw:
"For the record, there were no luxury malls in the Warsaw ghetto, no fancy restaurants and expensive cars. There were no mansions, no pools and they sure as heck didn't have miles and miles of sandy beaches."
On the Israelis acting like the Nazis:
"Israel delivers thousands of tons of food and supplies to Gaza every month...
I don't recall the Germans ever doing that in the Warsaw ghetto.
Injured and sick Gazans are regularly admitted to Israeli hospitals for the most advanced medical care ...
I don't recall the Nazis ever doing that in the Warsaw ghetto.
The Prime Minister of Gaza's own grandchild was brought to Israel for medical care...
you want to know what the Germans did to Jewish children?"
And of course:
"No residents of the Warsaw ghetto attempted to infiltrate German cities, board German buses to blow them up. Residents of the Warsaw ghetto never fired a rocket or a mortar into a German city."
Frank McDonald carries on with his "Nazi" drivel:
On Gaza being like the Warsaw Ghetto:
Frank McDonald, 6 Feb 2014:
"In terms of the way they operated (i.e. the concentration of people in one area, the diet, etc) there are disturbing similarities."
A reply says:
"There was KFC in the Warsaw Ghetto?"
Frank McDonald, 18 Feb 2014:
"It's very unfortunate that the Israelis have behaved like Nazis, killing innocent women & children."
Frank McDonald, 19 Feb 2014:
"For the record, I did not call Israel "Nazi Germany". But there are disturbing parallels."
I had some debate with McDonald on Twitter before he blocked me.
When confronted with the fact that debate and criticism are not allowed in the PA,
McDonald, 2 Mar 2014, produces this hilarious tweet:
"Yes, civil rights and open debate do not thrive in a society that's under siege, as Palestine is."
"Lol. Fatah, Hamas would run liberal parliamentary democracies .. if only the mean Israelis would let them!"
says: "I think the only fair outcome would be a single-state solution with equal rights for all."
"You are deluded if you think Fatah and Hamas believe in your western Orientalist concept of "rights"."
I was made a fool of in 2014-15 by a troll who was stalking McDonald,
and I am furious.
He is being stalked by a disgusting troll impersonator,
whose name is identical,
whose picture is identical,
and whose username is identical except for a hard-to-see missing "d".
What makes this guy a troll, not a parody, is that he really tries to fool people,
even his own "side",
that he is the real McDonald.
He jumps into McDonald's conversations with sneaky tactics
so you think McDonald has replied.
I was embarrassed and angry to be told in July 2015 that one of my criticisms of McDonald,
on my site since Aug 2014,
was in fact a fraud.
I was quoting the troll.
I want to apologise to McDonald for attributing the words of the troll to him.
This is the fake quote by the disgusting troll that fooled me in
This was on my site, attributed to McDonald, until July 2015, when I was told it was fake.
Note how the bastard jumps into a conversation which already has McDonald in it.
He replies, removing McDonald's name
and inserting his own.
What a devious bastard.
The irony is that
I was actually defending McDonald in the thread against someone who said he supports Hamas.
I was demanding evidence for such a claim.
(Such evidence never came.)
So above a troll got me to slander McDonald, for which I do apologise.
However, McDonald is also slandering me.
He claims (based on no evidence, for there is none)
that I am the troll.
He needs to apologise to me also.
Frank McDonald lies about me, July 2015.
He claims I run the above troll account.
No evidence is presented.
(None could exist.)
McDonald got his "information" from an Israel-hater
called David Carter.
David Carter simply
lies about me.
He just makes stuff up.
Not a scrap of evidence is ever presented.
(None could exist.)
Frank McDonald believes him and spreads the lie.
claims that I run another troll account!
He claims that I run
which impersonates his friend
No evidence is presented. (None could exist.)
I have never heard of either of them.
Irish Times journalist lies about me, using as his source a Holocaust denier.
This is what happens when one defends Israel in public online
(and when Irish Times journalists
lie down in the gutter with Israel-haters).
David Carter is
arrested by UK police on race hatred charges, for anti-semitism, Feb 2016.
See announcement of multiple arrests.
This is Frank McDonald's source
for information about me!
In fact, the above are not the only Holocaust deniers
Frank McDonald's friends.
There are still more.
Above I was accused by Holocaust denier David Carter of impersonating his friend
who I had never heard of.
It turns out that
also a Holocaust denier.
I never heard of him because I do not hang around with such filth.
does hang out with such filth.
And the filth admires his work:
"You fight the good fight Frank."
McDonald thanks him for the praise.
So we have a 3rd Holocaust denier
among McDonald's friends.
says I am Jewish "trash", May 2014:
"we all know u from rag peddler fraudster stock".
Alas, I reply,
I do not have that honour.
Frank McDonald follows this guy.
Frank McDonald and How to Spot a Wrong 'Un
on McDonald's unfortunate history of retweeting Holocaust deniers
The author is a leftist who hates the Tories and UKIP,
and he bends over backwards to give McDonald the benefit of the doubt.
(Rightly so, I think.)
I agree that we should be precise.
There is no evidence that
supports Holocaust denial
He may be entirely unaware of the beliefs of his friends.
But it shows the kind of gutter of Israel-hatred he lives in online.
hangs around with multiple Holocaust deniers online.
And blocks his pro-Israel critics like me.
Odd bigots on Twitter,
a useful list of dodgy tweets by Twitter anti-semites and nazis,
compiled by "InTheSoupAgain".
Who I block on Twitter:
I will debate almost anyone.
I love ideas.
I will not debate (and will block) people who:
(a) target my job,
(b) target my appearance, or:
(c) libel me.
Also, since 2016, abusive reporting has become a thing.
I was targeted with abusive reporting by
an Israel-hater pretending to be "Jewish".
So I now also block:
(d) any account that even hints that it reports its enemies,
(e) any Israel-hater that claims to be Jewish.
It is just self-defence.
