Calling Ellman, the MP for South
Tel Aviv is apparently ‘racist abuse’

an article allegedly about Nicola Sturgeon’s relationship with  Scotland’s Jewish community, Nicola
Sturgeon sparks Chanukah pride as Labour woes continue
Marcus Dysch devoted
much of it to what he called ‘racist abuse’ she has experienced ‘within her own
party and further afield.  Prominent amongst Ellman’s racial abusers was

Dysch complained bitterly that
Ellman had been all but abandoned by the Zionists:  ‘the
silence from all quarters is deafening’
he wrote. ‘Why is no one
rushing to her defence? Why are her colleagues and our communal organisations
not pursuing the expulsion of her abuser with the same vigour they have
directed at Ken Livingstone or Jackie Walker?’

Presumably the  media campaign against me hasn’t been strong
enough compared to Ken Livingstone  or
Jackie.  Dysch wants it stepped up.  I am described as ‘her abuser’ which I take as a kind of flattery.  Would that were so!  In fact I have played a relatively small part
in the campaign to deselect this foul and obnoxious woman, who has nothing in
common with the working class electorate of Liverpool 8.  It is an utter disgrace that this racist has
anything to do with a community that has a large Black and non-White

Dysch wrote that my ‘attacks on
her last year were the tipping point which prompted the party to suspend him.
He now awaits his fate at the hands of Labour’s disciplinary team.’

have my doubts about this.  Accuracy is
not Dysch’s strongest point.  My key
article Time to Deselect
Louise Ellman MP for Liverpool Riverside and Tel Aviv North – Apologist for
Israel’s Occupation Forces
was written on June 20th 2016
and I was suspended three months previously. 
However if this is what Dysch believes then clearly that is the spin
coming from McNicol’s monkeys.

an article ‘Labour
activist wins High Court injunction to delay disciplinary hearing on
antisemitism charges
’ it is asserted that ‘The
JC reported last week
that veteran Jewish Labour MP
Louise Ellman had been racially abused in blog posts written by Mr Greenstein.’ 
Of course if this is true then it is
truly terrible.  But is it true?  What is my offence?

Perhaps they missed the irony in my article Attacked Because She is Jewish and thought I
was being sincere!  No the reason is
given by Dysch himself.

‘Described as the MP for “Tel
Aviv South” and a “racist supporter of the child abuse of Palestinian
children”, Mrs Ellman was repeatedly attacked by Tony Greenstein, a noxious
Jewish anti-Zionist.’

I can live with the description ‘noxious’ when used by a Zionist hack like
Dysch.  I was once called ‘odious’ by
Philip Kleinman, the Jewish Chronicle’s boring media columnist (as was Ken
Livingstone, who according to the Sun was the most odious man in Britain).

it indeed ‘anti-Semitic’ to call a Zionist MP, the MP for Tel Aviv or Jerusalem?  Am I doing that because they are Jewish?  Of course if that were the only reason then that would be anti-Semitic, without
a doubt, even though of course Israel says it is the nation state of all Jews, not just its own Jewish citizens.  The fact that Zionism perpetuates the anti-semitic canard of ‘dual loyalty’ of Jews is no reason for anti-racists to do so.

of course it is nonsense.  I am calling
her the MP for Tel Aviv for exactly the same reasons that we called John
Carlisle, the Monday Club MP for Luton North, the MP for Pretoria.  Why? 
Because he was a devoted supporter of teh Apartheid regime in South
Africa.  It wasn’t because he was White
or for any racial or ethnic reasons but because of his political
positions.  Likewise when I write an
article such as Louise
Ellman MP for Liverpool Riverside and Tel Aviv South is a Racist Supporter of
the Child Abuse of Palestinian Children
I am attacking her because she is a vile Zionist not because she
is Jewish.  Her religious affiliation is
of no concern to me.  Her politics

I homed in on Ellman in particular for her role in a debate
in the House of Commons on 6th January 2016.  I have put a shortened
on the Internet.  It was a debate
on Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories.  It covered a Report by a group of British lawyers
and then Unicef on the beating, torture and maltreatment of Palestinian children.  Some videos showing the treatment of these
kids can be seen underneath.

have covered this in depth in Louise
Ellman MP for Liverpool Riverside and Tel Aviv South is a Racist Supporter of
the Child Abuse of Palestinian Children
and don’t intend to cover it
here.  All I wish to say is that if the Labour
Party was serious in changing into a socialist party then it would be rid of
this vile woman in a shot.  Not because
she is Jewish but because she is a racist and a Zionist who is prepared to
defend Israel’s military even whilst it is abusing and arresting Palestinian children
as young as 9.

Dysch is renowned for the quota of mistakes in his articles.  Thus in his Labour
activist wins High Court injunction to delay disciplinary hearing on
antisemitism charges
.  A small detail
but it is indicative of his lack of attention to detail.  In an article that quotes me, the normal
thing for most honest journalists would be to ring up the subject of their
article and speak to them.  Dysch is
content to quote my blog and make the rest up.
