Sussex Friends of Israel  – A Policy of Perjury
Last Thursday the prosecution case against a Brighton member of PSC collapsed,
when the District Judge accepted that the two Zionist witnesses had been
discredited, after their evidence had been completely contradicted by video
footage. There was therefore no case to answer, and the activist was therefore
acquitted.

Brighton PSC makes a particular point of videoing and
archiving evidence such as this, knowing full well that the Zionists do not
hesitate to falsify evidence and perjure themselves.  It is, after all, what they do in Palestine.  The defence barrister made the point that it
would have been difficult, if not impossible, to challenge the credibility of
the prosecution witnesses without this footage being available.
Background
On the 17th of May 2014, two Zionist
protesters made a formal complaint to the police that, during the demo outside
Ecostream, that they had not only been called Nazis, but it had been done in a
personally threatening and abusive way that caused them deep alarm and distress
‘as Jewish women’. They alleged that he had come over to where they were
positioned, called them both ‘fucking nazis’ and shook his finger at them
‘within two inches’ of their faces in a menacing way.
Zionist activist shouting in activist’s ear, later complains of being ‘harassed’
– This led to a decision by the Crown
Prosecution Service to charge the activist with a racially/religiously
aggravated public order offence under Section 5, and to proceed to prosecution.
The prosecution case was based
entirely on the witness statements of the two Zionist counter-protesters,
Sandra Gross and Fiona Sharpe, who are both prominent members of Sussex Friends
of Israel. At the start of the trial in February, both witnesses in open court
re-stated the accusations they had made last May in interview and in writing.

In February, the court was shown
video footage from the day in question – our own, as well as CCTV footage from
inside the Ecostream shop. This footage had not been disclosed to the
prosecution in advance of the trial (there was no requirement to do so). The
footage clearly showed that, throughout the period of time in question, The activist was standing several yards from the ‘victims’. At no point did he stand anywhere
near them. He was heard to say ‘You’re all nazis – all the Zionists are nazis’
which may be a slight exaggeration, but not in the case of Sussex Friends of
Israel, a number of whose members are linked to the Nazi Jewish Defence League
and work with the EDL.
The prosecution accepted that this
video evidence captured the entirety of the alleged offence.
The magistrate therefore judged that the evidence of the
two witnesses had been discredited, that the activist’s behaviour had not been
threatening, that his words were not personally directed at the witnesses, that
his words alone in this context had not caused alarm or distress, and that the
video footage showed that no one else at the demo had taken any notice of what
he said – let alone been distressed. Therefore: ‘No case to answer’.
Most people who attended the trial felt that the outcome
only deserved two cheers. In particular:
A time-consuming and costly
prosecution was approved and conducted solely on the basis of two witness statements
by Zionists, who have a clear policy of making untruthful statements in evidence.
That the Prosecution could take place on such flimsy evidence, when the police
were aware of the racist, sexist and homophobic abuse of pro-Palestinian
demonstrators by the Zionists throughout the Ecostream campaign, shows how
completely one-sided the policing of the protest was, and how in thrall to the Zionists
is the entire criminal justice system.

We now know that their evidence was completely fabricated – that is, they lied
to the police and they lied in court. This is a criminal offence. And yet the
chances of them being charged with perjury are remote.
The activist’s barrister argued that, in
the context of a ‘heated political demonstration’, the words used were
political rather than racial. He argued further that the term ‘nazi’ is quite
wide-ranging in contemporary English, to mean ‘authoritarian’, and is not used
exclusively to refer to the persecution of Jews during the Nazi era. The
magistrate in her summing up rejected these arguments, and ruled that the use
of the word ‘nazi’ could still potentially be abusive, and that by using the
term in a situation where the activist knew many of the Zionists were Jews, it was ‘possible
that hostility directed to the Jewish race had been intended and achieved’.
Brighton, 9 April 2015

The prosecution case against a local Palestinian
activist collapsed this morning, when the presiding judge acknowledged that the
evidence of the two witnesses for the prosecution had been completely
contradicted by video footage. There was therefore no case to answer. The
wrongly-accused defendant was exonerated, and excused from the court without
conditions.
The trial related to an incident alleged to have taken place during a
demonstration outside the Ecostream store in Western Road on the 17th of May
2014 – part of a two-year campaign protesting against the complicity of
Ecostream in the illegal Israeli occupation of Palestine. On the day, two
pro-Israel counter-protesters made a formal complaint to the police. They
accused one of our number of calling them ‘nazis’, and of doing so in a
personally threatening and abusive way that caused them deep alarm and distress
‘as jewish women’. They alleged that he had come over to where they were
positioned, called them both ‘fucking nazis’ and shook his finger at them
‘within two inches of their faces’ in a menacing way.
This led to a decision by the Crown Prosecution Service to charge our
comrade with a racially/religiously aggravated public order offence under
Section 5, and to proceed to prosecution.
The prosecution case was based entirely on the witness statements of the
two zionist counter-protesters – both of whom are prominent members of Sussex
Friends of Israel (one the Co-Chair). At the start of the trial in February,
both witnesses re-stated in open court the accusations they had made last May
in interview and in writing.
In February, the court was shown video footage from the day in question –
including CCTV footage from inside the Ecostream shop. The footage clearly
showed that, throughout the period of time in question, our comrade was
standing several yards from the ‘victims’. At no point did he stand anywhere
near them. On the video he was heard to say ‘You’re all nazis – all the
zionists are nazis’.
The prosecution accepted that this video evidence captured the entirety
of the alleged offence. With the witness statements directly contradicted by
video evidence, the prosecution case collapsed.
The judge therefore ruled that our comrade’s behaviour had not been
threatening, that his words were not personally directed at the witnesses, that
his words alone in this context had not caused alarm or distress, and that the
video footage showed that no one else at the demo had taken any notice of what
he said – let alone been distressed. Therefore: ‘No case to answer’.

We’re naturally pleased that this case has collapsed and that the zionist
witnesses have been completely discredited. But the trial leaves several
important questions unanswered:
Why was this time-consuming and costly prosecution approved and
conducted, when it was based solely on flimsy and invented witness statements
by two politically-motivated zionists? This is especially shocking when the
police were aware throughout the Ecostream campaign of the genuinely racist,
sexist and homophobic abuse of pro-Palestinian demonstrators by the zionists.
We now know that the zionists’ evidence was completely fabricated – they
lied to the police and they lied in court in an attempt to get one of our
number convicted of a hate crime. Video footage from Sussex Friends of Israel’s
own Facebook page, played in open court, showed that this had been their
deliberate and conspiratorial intention on the day. This is a criminal offence.
Will they be charged with perjury?
Simon Cobb’s Protection Racket Rumbled
On another, more amusing, note, there is a blog post from an erstwhile comrade of the main organiser of Sussex Friends of Israel concerning Simon Cobbs.  Cobbs, who has featured a number of times on this blog, as well as being a close associate of the JDL and EDL, has been absent from recent protests and is reported to be ill.  I won’t return the compliment of a number of SFI members, who have wished me an early death, on Mr Cobbs.  I just hope that he has time to reflect on his ways.
I have no idea who it is who is writing this but obviously he has the measure of Cobbs and Sussex Friends of Israel, most of whom it should be added are racist fundamentalist Christians who want to hasten the days of Armageddon, when most Jews will be consumed with fire, so the elect can teleport their way to heaven.
With friends like this….

How Simon Cobbs Graduated From Fraud To Running a Protection Racket + fiona sharpe, notorious perjurer

Simon Cobbs in happier days

The harassing of the poor Board of Deputies, and the trolling of
its constituent organisations and individual deputies, by Sussex Friends
of Israel (hereafter SFI), has come to a sudden and emphatic halt.

The reason for this is not complcated

Money

An understanding of SFI, and its relationship with the Board is
essential to an understanding of how the Southampton conference was
lost. But that is a whole story in itself. For the moment, suffice it to
say, the whole thing reeks of Jonathan Arkush.

Not one of nature’s shrinking violets

The latest Israeli atrocities in Gaza brought sharply into focus a
phenomenon that has come to be known as the ” Jewish Grass Roots”. The
grass roots is made up of kahanist type ultra right wing Jewish ”
activists” ( and some not so Jewish ), who regard their role as standing
up for Israel on the streets. One, North West Friends of Israel, has a
penchant for hanging out with members and officers of the the ultra
right wing racist Henry Jackson Society, not least with Douglas ”
 things have to be made harder for Muslims all round” Murray. It is
notorious for its EDL associations, which are  based on a mutual hatred
of Muslims, as acknowledged by committee member Natan Levinson. See here

After the Jewish establishment organisations ( in a self protection
exercise ) announced increased funding for the grass roots, the number
of grass roots organisations increased at an exponential rate. Every
Jewish n’er do well wanted a slice of the cake.

The inspiration for the grass roots phenomenon is said to be SFI.
This is puzzling because SFI’s only success to date is to get the
Israeli company, Ecostream, shut down in Brighton.
SFI consists of its founder, Simon Cobbs, a handful of  Jewish
Zionist loons and a few swivel eyed Christian Zionists. They number a
dozen at the very most, though these numbers were swelled in the
Ecostream days by a few  occasionals.

Simon is a case and three quarters. You can  see SFI at its glorious best here

Simon is a fraudster who served nine months of an eighteen month
sentence in Her Majesty’s Slammer, Exeter, for the said frauds. Now,
everyone is entitled make a mistake, take the consequences and then move
on. But Simon doesn’t want to move on. He likes it where he is.
Essentially, Simon has, and always will have, a criminal mind.

Nor is Simon SFI’s only  criminal mind. Meet Fiona Sharpe, SFI co-chair, notorious perjurer, and the Board and the Jewish Chronicle’s
favoured candidate for” acceptable face”. Here.

So, out of a dozen or less, SFI have three proven, shameless criminals, and that’s just we ones we know about.

(North West Friends of Israel are not without criminal minds either but that’s for another day).

Simon is a self confessed junkie.

A while back, Simon, ever the conman, decided it would be a good idea
to be Jewish. Unfortunately, not content to be any old Jew, he decided
to be an Orthodox Jew, with all the pitfalls that that entails.
He quit typing ” God ” and started to type ” G-d”. A year later he
discovered pesach. Six more months down the road he had mastered a few
Hebrew phrases and colloquialisms. He still, however, has difficulty in
spelling ” schmuck”.

Mid way through the Ecostream business he expressed a concern about
what he was going to do on a Saturday when it was all over. Make what
you will of an Orthodox Jew that can’t figure out what to do on a
Saturday.

This Orthodox Jew carries on trolling on the internet right though every Shabbat, and every Jewish holiday.

Late last year Simon declared that an alleged indiscretion By
Brighton BDS had ” made my Christmas”. This was on the second day of
Chanukah when you would have thought that an Orthodox Jew would have
been much more conscious of Chanukah than Christmas, and would have said
” made my Chanukah”.

It is all rounded off by a claim to have spent several years on a
Kibbutz. If you can imagine Simon slaving all day under a blazing sun in
the orange groves, and spending his evenings strumming his guitar by
the camp fire, under a starry starry sky, you have a better imagination
than we.
Simon’s grasp of what is going on in the world is extremely tenuous.

For example, when the Malaysian air liner was shot down by separatists over Ukraine, he wanted to picket the Ukrainian embassy.

He wants the LibDems to do something about Baroness Warsi.

When Yachad failed to get past the threshold, and get a Knesset seat
in the Israeli elections, he told Yachad UK that the Israeli people had
rejected their ideas.

Obviously the education department at Exeter slammer is not everything it is cracked up to be.

The Board of Deputies are terrified of the grass roots. They are particularly terrified of SFI.

Following last year’s Israeli atrocities in Gaza, the grass roots
launched a whole series of vitriolic assaults on the Jewish
establishment, and on the Board in particular. The essence was that they
were not doing enough on behalf of Israel, in the prevailing climate.
It went on day, after day, after day. This at a time when the Board were
feeling particularly vulnerable. They were being turned on one flank by
the JLC, who are sitting quietly and patiently to take them ( the
Board) over,  and now on the other flank, by the grass roots. Total and
permanent irrelevance was, and is, their lot. The JLC  took a lot of
stick too. but they have the self confidence to just roll with it. Not
so the Board, whose response was craven and embarrassing appeasement.

Steven Jaffe’s job title was changed from Community Engagement
Advisor to Grass Roots Advisor. They tweaked their web site so as to
describe themselves as a ” grass roots organisation” They backed the
embarrassing grass roots initiative, Israction Day, which introduced a
whole new style of Jewish” philanthropy”. They sucked up to the grass
roots at every opportunity. All to no avail. The grass roots simply
pocketed each gesture without so much as a thank you, and came back at
them.

In desperation, the Board played their trump card. They decided to buy them off.

So it is that the Board now fund their tormentors, in the form of
both cash and ” practical support”.  The Board and Simon have a deal.
The Board will keep handing out the dosh, and Simon will quit being
horrible to them, This deal is to be formalised, in that SFI are to sign
up to a code of conduct. Item number one is that SFI will stop
harassing the Board and, instead, talk about what has been achieved(?),
and can be achieved, by ” working together”. Then there will be a list
of  conduct undertakings, designed to keep the embarrassing of the Board
to a minimum. Good luck with that one.The
first draft does not include an undertaking to stop perjuring
themselves in Brighton courts of law. But to be fair they have been
caught on the hop on this one. We are sure the final draft will include
such an undertaking.

This code is already in place informally. There is no more
threatening the Board’s constituent organisations with violence. It will
be remembered that Simon had a twitter account shut down for
threatening Hannah Weisfeld. There is no more trolling liberal Jews. All
this has abruptly stopped. Now it is all #workingtogether.

In effect, this money has been obtained by SFI, by extortion. They
profess undying love for Israel. They declare the Board to be irrelevant
and counter productive.They
declare the Board a bunch of kapos and worse. But  obviously they  are
not prepared to let any of this get in the way of nice little earners.

Let us be perfectly clear what is happening here.


The Board of Deputies of British Jews is taking money from
the Jewish community, given to fund their “work”. They are then handing
over this money to a handful of histrionic, narcissistic loons, littered
with fraudsters and perjurers, that have mercilessly insulted them over
many months. Loons that have threatened the Boards constituent
organisations. Loons that have equally mercilessly insulted a member of
the Board’s executiv, who is not to their liking. Loons that troll
individual deputies, particularly those that are of a liberal
persuasion.

Just how desperate and pathetic can it get.
