Are you listening to me as a Podcast? Please let me know if you want this to continue. I’m seriously considering switching only to publishing on Steem. The simple fact is that’s a lot easier than maintaining my own WordPress site.
Discussing just how amazing Beresheet and Space IL’s achievement was even though they didn’t land gently on the moon. And at the same time the USA was kicking my friend Avi Yemini out of the country and back to Australia!
From Friday I discuss how Tommy Robinson’s team has set up a Telegram channel in the wake of him being shut down on Snapchat.

This show is a mix of feedback from the first day of Tommy Robinson in court suing Cambridge Police over his now infamous pub and city expulsion. The video of that expulsion, which Tommy first streamed on Periscope, I captured and reposted to YouTube has been shared far and wide. Multiple uploads of it and edits mean it has had millions of views.
The Dutch word I mentioned is “mierenneuken” which you could translate as nit picking if you’re being polite.
Tommy has refused financial settlements with gag orders in order to continue asking for a public apology and an admission that what the police did that day was wrong.
I also tell the story of Tommy refusing to pay what he called “jizya” – the tax paid by non-Muslim dhimmi subjects under Islamic rule – when the religious Muslim authorities at the Temple Mount wanted to charge him to borrow a shawl to cover his tattoos.
