Zionists Openly Admit to trying to Disrupt Public Meetings on Palestine as the Attempt to Prevent Haneen Zoabi Speaking at SOAS Fails

Jonathan Hoffman and his Zionist thugs tell a Jewish Holocaust Survivor that she is a ‘disgrace’ for opposing racism and Zionism

On Friday evening there was an attempt by a group of fascist Zionists, led by the notorious Jonathan Hoffman, who was convicted of various public order offences last summer in connection with an assault on a Palestinian woman at a demonstration outside Puma. This time Hoffman’s mission was to attempt to disrupt and prevent the brave former member of Israel’s Knesset, Haneen Zoabi from speaking.
Hoffman is well-known for working with Fascists and Anti-Semites – Just So Long as They Support Zionism and Israel

Hoffman should know that Haneen has faced far more serious attempts by the Zionist regime and its military to stop Haneen speaking and organising. Zionism’s pale imitations of Oswald Moseley were nothing more than a mild nuisance. What is interesting though is the rationale and ‘logic’ behind Hoffman and friends.

Hoffman and fellow fascists openly boast that ‘we disrupted this vile meeting’ 

According to Hoffman’s blog, laughingly titled Thrown out at SOAS for telling the truth, he is entitled to disrupt or prevent any meeting that he classifies as ‘anti-Semitic’. What was the truth he told? That it was all ‘lies’. That was his sole rationale.

Anti-Semitism according to Hoffie is anyone who supports the Palestinians or who opposes Zionism, because in his world view, anti-Zionism = anti-Semitism.  Thus he calls SOAS, a multi-national institution, the pride of London University, an ‘anti-Semitic sewer.’ According to Hoffman ‘Calling Israel an Apartheid State is anti-semitic.’ Which logically means that telling the truth is anti-Semitic. In which case the anti-Semites are right after all! This is how Zionism ends up justifying and supporting anti-Semitism.

The Failure by SOAS Centre for Palestine Studies to Take Security Precautions is Totally Unacceptable

Haneen Zoabi was the most reviled and detested Arab member of the Knesset. She has, as you can see in these FB posts, been called a ‘terrorist’ on innumerable occasions. It is quite possible for some deranged lunatic like Hoffman to make an attempt of her life.

The failure to provide strict security is lamentable and I shall be writing to them. It is utterly unacceptable.

I have carefully documented the activities of these people, including providing names and photographs. Hoffman and co. have complained bitterly, including trying to hold me responsible for the suicide of one of their number! I have shown how Hoffman has continually and regularly consorted with a variety of fascists from the EDL to Britain First and Tommy Robinson. I have shown how the Board of Deputies has been happy to demonstrate alongside the Jewish Nazi Jewish Defence League and Tommy Robinson supporters.

Where this information has been used, Hoffman and friends have been left kicking their heels outside the meetings they hoped to disrupt. It is therefore extremely disappointing that the Centre for Palestine Studies at SOAS did not avail themselves of this information. Despite saying that ID was required there was no attempt to do this on the night. The lack of security was not only depressing but it gives encouragement to these thugs. I hope that SOAS’s Centre for Palestine Studies takes note because you are making things difficult for other meetings and organisations. Your decision to have no security on the night was highly irresponsible.

Al Quds Demonstration Sees the Zionist Federation and the Board of Deputies Join Hands with the Far Right 4 June 2019

Hoffman effortlessly gives his far-Right connections away when he tells us that Haneen Zoabi ‘is not even supported by many Arabs in Israel.’ He quotes Arab Israeli journalist Khaled Abu Toameh who wrote an articleIsrael’s Arabs: A Tale of Betrayal which informs readers that

‘some of the Israeli Arab community’s elected representatives and leaders have worked harder for Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip than for their own Israeli constituents.’

Divide and Rule is an old trick of racists and imperialists. Who is Khaled Abu Toameh? A writer for the right-wing Zionist Jerusalem Post. And where did the article appear? On the web site of the Gatestone Institute where he is styled as a ‘Distinguished Senior Fellow’.

And what, you may ask, is the Gatestone Institute?  A respected academic institution or think tank? Well if you go to Wikipedia you will learn that:

‘Gatestone Institute is a far-right think tank known for publishing anti-Muslim articles. It was founded in 2008 by Nina Rosenwald, who serves as its president. Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations and former national security advisorJohn R. Bolton, was its chairman from 2013 to March 2018. Its current chairman is Amir Taheri.’ Taheri himself

‘has been the subject of many controversies involving fabrications in his writings, most notable of which was the 2006 Iranian sumptuary law controversy.’

One of its board members is billionaire Rebeka Mercer, who also happens to fund the far-Right Breitbart which Steve Bannon edited before he fell out with Trump. Breitbart combines racism, hostility to feminism, gay rights and anti-Semitism. A quite heady brew.

Below the Fascists Debate Their Attempted Disruption of a Lawful Meeting

It should be noted that Roslyn Pine was suspended for 6 years by the Board of Deputies after having described Palestinians as the ‘vilest of animals’ – it is unclear whether the sentence was lifted on appeal

According to Wikipedia, Gatestone

‘regularly publishes false reports to stoke anti-Muslim fears and has published false stories pertaining to Muslims and Islam. Gatestone frequently warns of a looming “jihadist takeover” and “Islamization” of Europe, leading to a “Great White Death”

Just the kind of publication that you would expect Hoffman to quote from!

Hoffman tells us that

‘The disorder then increased. Cries of ‘Israel is a democracy’ were met with a sinister chorus from the mob of “Zionists Out”, chillingly redolent of the cries of “Juden Raus” on Kristallnacht in 1938 in Nazi Germany.’

Jewish Chronicle report of 12.7.18.

This is how Zionism cynically exploits the Holocaust, whilst keeping Holocaust survivors in poverty in Israel. The Holocaust to Zionists is no more than a means to defend the world’s most racist state. How does ‘Zionists out’ equate to ‘Juden Raus’?  Zionism is a political not an ethnic ideology. It’s like saying that ‘fascists out’ is a threat to all British people  Nonsensical as well as dishonest. Hoffman then recalls how:

An elderly woman dressed in pink in the front row announced herself as a ‘Holocaust Survivor’ (video here). The truth is that she was born in Budapest in 1944 so knew nothing about the Holocaust. She’s a charlatan, she was never in a death camp. But to call herself a ‘survivor’ adds to her cachet among the antisemites when she maligns Israel…

The IHRA is giving fascists and Zionists a pretext to ban meetings they don’t like – under the guise of ‘antisemitism’

Because it is Israel uber alles Hoffman will even traduce someone born in Nazi occupied Europe in order to defend his racist rat hole. This common and garden racist, who demonstrates side by side with Britain First members, attacks a Holocaust survivor who unlike Hoffman is able to relate her own experiences to the suffering of the Palestinians.

Board of Deputies only acts against Roslyn Pine after years of her racism – in this case calling Arabs ‘the vilest of animals’ – but what Pine says openly is in the throat of many other racists in the Board of Deputies

If Hoffman knew anything about the Holocaust, he would not doubt that the woman in question was a Holocaust survivor. The definition of which is being born under Nazi occupation not being in a death camp or a concentration camp.

In 1944 nearly half a million Hungarian Jews were deported to Auschwitz whilst the leader of Hungarian Zionism,  Rudolph Kasztner was reaching an agreement with Adolf Eichmann to secure a train out of Hungary containing the Zionist leadership.

Jonathan deciding to boycott Israel

Kasztner deliberately kept information on Auschwitz from Hungarian Jews. As Elie Wiesel, an ardent Zionist wrote:

‘We were taken just two weeks before D-Day, and we did not know that Auschwitz existed… everyone knew except the victims.’ Wiesel asked ‘Why didn’t we know? To this day I try to understand what happened. If ever there was a tragedy that could have been prevented, it was that one.’

Wiesel was also quoted in the LA Times 23.5.93. as saying that:

‘Jewish leaders of Palestine never made the rescue of European Jews into an overwhelming national priority. We know that Zionist leader Itzhak Gruenbaum… considered creating new settlements more urgent than saving Jews from being sent to Treblinka and Birkenau.’

 In 1944 the Jews of Budapest survived the deportations because of massive world pressure which forced Hungary’s pro-Nazi leader Admiral Horthy to call a halt to the deportations on July 7th 1944However the Nazi Arrow Cross government that the Nazis installed on October 15th terrorised the Jews of Budapest and some 50,000 out of 200,000 were murdered by their militia.

The woman in pink at the meeting is, in every sense, a Holocaust survivor. The fact that Hoffman, in his desperation to defend an Israeli state, should query this indicates how despicable and contemptible this wretched apology for a human being is.

There is not one redeeming feature about Jonathan Hoffman, a disgusting apologist for Israeli apartheid.  When his death comes it will be hard to find even 1 good word to say about him. As Malcolm noted in MacBeth about the execution of Thane of Cawdor, ‘nothing in his life became him so much as his leaving it.’ We can only hope that Hoffman will not have too long to wait.   Let’s hope God is a Zionist because he will have a shock if he isn’t!

There can be no doubt today that Israel is an apartheid state. It is, by its own definition a state only of its Jewish citizens. A state which passes a law (Reception Committee Law 2011) allowing Jewish only communities to bar Arabs on ‘suitability’ grounds.

Hoffman, in his manic ramble tells us that ‘SOAS is virtually a Jew-free university.’ Having studied at SOAS as part of my own MA I can say, without fear of contradiction, that I never experienced any anti-Semitism at SOAS.  But then my definition of anti-Semitism is hostility to Jews, not hatred of a racist ideology called Zionism!

What is though disturbing is that Hoffman and his fellows openly boast of organising to disrupt meetings.  If a group of left-wingers were to do the same then the Police would no doubt be interested. Pressure should be put on the Metropolitan Police to consider pursuing charges against Hoffman and his fellows.

There is no limit to Hoffman’s self-deception

And let it be remembered that Hoffman is someone who has no hesitation in working with the Holocaust denial Britain First, the English Defence League, Tommy Robinson supporters and of course he quotes from the openly Islamaphobic Gatestone Institute.

Hoffman and company don’t even bother to hide the fact that they think they have the right to disrupt meetings they disagree with under the rubric ‘antisemitism’

The attack on Palestine and anti-Zionist meetings is at one with the Tory attempt to impose the IHRA misdefinition of anti-Semitism on universities whose sole purpose is, in the words of the person who drafted it, Kenneth Stern, to ‘chill’ free speech.

Hoffman has also attacked SOAS academic Dr Dina Matar who chaired the meeting. Hoffman ‘reveals’ that Dina agreed that ex-Israeli Professor Haim Bresheeth, of Jewish Network for Palestine, could book a room for a meeting! But then, according to Hoffman, JNP is ‘hate-infested political group set up explicitly to attack mainstream British Jewry’  As a member I can assure Hoffman that its remit has nothing to do with an attack on Jews. Zionism is our only target. According to the demented Hoffman anyone who is not a signed up Zionist is an anti-Semite because the definition of ‘anti-Semitism’ to the Zionists has nothing to do with Jews and everything to do with Israel.
