Max Blumenthal via Mondoweiss, excerpt-
In the days leading up to Israeli Apartheid Week’s opening event at Columbia University, leading anti-Muslim blogger Pam Geller posted an image of an SS officer with the name of one of the event’s speakers, Ben White, emblazoned on his uniform. (The image recalled placards held by far-right settlers depicting Yitzhak Rabin in an SS uniform just days before he was assassinated.) Geller was among the crowd at the Columbia event, making sure to catch White’s eye as he walked to the podium to speak. He told me that she mouthed to him, “You’re a Nazi.” The day after the event, Geller posted another characteristically juvenile screed describing White as “Nazi boy.”
On the same day Geller posted her smear of White, she promoted a rally in defense of the Dutch anti-Muslim extremist Geert Wilders by the English Defense League (EDL) (Wilders has called for a “head rag tax” on Muslim women who wear hijab).
I’m not sure how Randroid Geller makes Ben White a Nazi while the EDL are her heroes being as he supports the human rights of all those in Palestine & Israel (as opposed to say an ethno-religious apartheid state that is ethnically cleansing Palestine) and the EDL are… erm your standard common or garden fascist thugs. Once again we see they have no actual arguments they just have violence and hysterical propaganda, or as it’s more commonly known The-War-On-Terror™.
Your Friday day of protest is a full one-
THREE PROTESTS ON FRIDAY 5 MARCH FOR STOP THE WAR
Friday 5 May is a very active day for Stop the War, with our
protest at the Iraq Inquiry when Gordon Brown appears, and our
picket of the military court at which Lance Corporal Joe
Glenton will be sentenced, now joined by our support for an
emergency protest against a march by the racist English
Defence League (EDL)
EDL EMERGENCY PROTEST
The EDL is marching to welcome the anti-Muslim Dutch political
leader, Geert Wilders, who is visting Parliament. Wilders’
exteme racism led to an earlier government ban on him entering
Britain. The emergency protest, which has been called by Unite
Against Fascism, and is supported by many organisations,
assembles at 11am outside Parliament (DETAILS:
