I covered a whole lot of subjects starting off with the sad passing of my friend’s wife, Ahava. She battled ovarian cancer (which she learned about at Stage 4) for 7 years which was incredible. She leaves behind my friend Dave (who is the proprietor of the Israellycool blog where I’ve published for many years) and her five children. Baruch Dayan Emet as we say here.
After that I talk about the murder of Dvir Sorek and the way even the Israeli media are quick to label him a soldier when the reality was very different. He was a 19 year old in civilian clothes, those who murdered him didn’t murder him for being a soldier, the murdered him for being a Jew.
That moves me on to the boundaries of Zionism, what it was, what it is today and what it most definitely isn’t (a plan to take over the world). From there we skip to what I hope will be one of my last mentions of Shazia Hobbs, Mark Collett and someone called Alison Chabloz. I cover the “arrest” of a 4 year old child which Alison lied about in her interview with Shazia (details here). Hopefully we can move on past this renewed infiltration of Tommy Robinson’s support group at TR.News by Jew haters.
I really wish I didn’t keep talking and writing about this. Hopefully TR.News’s video on why Tommy hates Nazis (did we really have to say this?) and my video podcast here about the specific issues surrounding Shazia Hobbs will let us draw a line under this and move forward. I’ve already published here and here about this.
In essence Shazia wrote something that would be read as antisemitic. It could have been fixed relatively easily. The editor of TR.News knew all this and didn’t want it on Tommy’s site. He explained the issues to Shazia but she decided she wanted to stand by what she’d written and published it elsewhere. Once it was picked up and promoted by hard core ethno-nationalists and those with Nazi sympathies (no matter how well concealed they keep this) Shazia became a liability for TR.News and Tommy Robinson.
Over the weekend, the team at TR.News produced a devastating video and article addressing the removal of, first, an article by Shazia Hobbs and then all her articles from TR.News. This is not something I was directly in charge of but, for reasons I’ll set out later, I must agree with.
Here’s the start of the TR.News article:
TR.News – Addressing Nationalism And The Elephant In The Room. Everyone is aware of a fallout between the TR.News team and Shazia Hobbs, today we make our point and carry on the good fight for Tommy.
How To Burn A REAL NAZI
Race-based politics is not something either Tommy or ourselves here at TR.News has ever supported. Sure issues need to be addressed with the forgotten and downtrodden white working class. We will always recognise that fact, and we will always fight for that cause. However, we will do it in a way that understands and respects Tommy’s way of doing it. What we won’t do; is sacrifice our loyalty or our love for country based on racially motivated demagoguery. That’s never been Tommy’s way; it never will be Tommy’s way.
To answer a specific set of questions being thrown at me on Twitter (which I don’t address in the video), I don’t give a damn what colour Jews in Israel are. I’m unconcerned at nonsense such as “would I care if Israel become a majority black state”. I’m unconcerned by the skin colour but I’m deeply concerned that Israel remain Jewish which probably means a Jewish majority (no matter what skin colour we all are) and that the dominant culture and basis for law remain Jewish. Where we draw the boundaries on religious observance remains ours to debate. I don’t like Jews marrying out of Judaism but I don’t see that it is the role of a government to stop it.
I don’t foresee or necessarily advocate for a removal of non-Jews from the country, so long as those who remain do so under the strict knowledge that they are in a Jewish country and that any desire to change that most basic nature of the country is not to be tolerated.
This debate was organised by Joseph of the Israel Advocacy Network who invited me on it. With some hesitation I agreed to take part despite knowing exactly who Mark Collett is and what he says. I’m also pretty familiar with his (real) neo-Nazi audience.
I knew he’d bring along a bunch of ridiculous and skewed Ha’aretz and Guardian articles (he had all the ones I expected) and his usual grab bag of updated versions of the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion and Culture of Critique.
The live chat was a cesspool and I believe the chat caused the original to be removed.
As bad as Mark is and what he represents, I don’t believe he will ever achieve great success or reach. He’ll speak to his crowd of devoted followers but going through life blaming Jews for everything you don’t have will never be a successful strategy. Sure you can take Poland with a tank or two but eventually, with a bit of luck, freedom and sanity will win over again.
For the main reason that Mark’s views are not mainstream anywhere in any semblance of authority, I don’t regard them as a serious existential threat (and no, Orban, Salvini, the AFD and other on the new right in Europe aren’t as bad as Mark). The far-left and Islam run countries, academia and the media: that’s a real threat.
Joseph has posted a short video explaining why his version of the live chat has gone down but as the alt-right and the neo-Nazis are posting the video in full, for the record, so will I. I don’t believe Mark made his points to anything but his own audience and I’ll explain more in my own video soon.
So here it is, unedited and up on an immutable block chain site.
