As people may have realised, the title of this blog has been changed from ‘Anti-Zionists Against Anti-Semites’ to ‘Tony Greenstein’s Blog’.
The reason for this is that the original reason for setting this up, the activities of the small group of anti-Semites around Gilad Atzmon and Mary Rizzo, has shrunk into insignificance. The original blog was originally set in the wake of the furore over postings by Atzmon on the once radical Indymedia. Almost despite themselves and their Atzmon sidekick, FTP, they decided to put a question mark over Atzmon’s verbal Diarrhoea. This was enough for Atzmon to pick up his tent and run for cover.
Rumour also has it that the SWP, in the midst of a civil war between supporters of John Rees and Martin Smith, has also ditched the Atzmon. Presumably blaming the Jews for the current economic crisis was one step too far! Of course the SWP, which once went out on a limb to defend Atzmon (a cash cow for them) doesn’t have the honesty to actually announce the fact or explain its change of position.
It is therefore my intention to post a wider range of articles including articles and reviews I have written elsewhere and past pamphlets (once I get the hang of how to upload documents etc.!). Tony Greenstein
