Israeli Deniers, Trolls in Commentator Clothes

Zylarria7_9810

Those who defend Israel, defend occupation, aggression, suppression, apartheid and genocide. They defend tearing up orchards and tearing down homes; building walls to imprison communities; driving people off their land, controlling their movements, harassing them, jailing, torturing and killing them. They defend the bombing of homes, schools, hospitals, old ladies and children. They defend injustice, lies, murder, hate and crimes against humanity. They are in other words deniers of the nature of Israel.

Like climate deniers, they are a minority with powerful backers and access to broad media channels creating the appearance of numbers and importance far greater than reality can witness. Although facts on the ground keep decimating their numbers, they still do considerable damage.

Besides their juggling acts on the stage of the mainstream media, they troll the internet. Wikipedia defines a troll as a person who sows discord by starting arguments or upsetting people by posting inflammatory messages with the deliberate intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

Trolls, disguised as normal commentators, are often agents. Some of them have been exposed as appearing under many identities. Characteristically, they attack the people posting or commenting, while avoiding the message. They rarely engage in a discussion based on content.

How should we deal with the Israel denier trolls? Don’t get sucked into a discussion with them. If you must reply, say, ”Troll! Stick to the topic.” Stating a clear question about a specific point and getting an irrelevant reply will tell you that you are dealing with a troll.

Post a picture of the four maps below as often as possible, in all social media. Most important, discuss how to stop the Israel campaign of genocide, and not if they are genocidal or not.

Don’t be afraid of being accused of anti-Semitism! Reply that you are for the Semites, the Palestinians (who are more semite than the Israelis); that you are anti-apartheid, anti-racism, anti-genocide and anti the Israeli form of fascism.

Struggle in solidarity, for justice, truth and love!

“It’s wrong to debate who’s right or wrong.
We’re a river of blood beyond that.
If we’re not debating how to stop the wrong,
we’re singing out of tune to the wrong song.”
Dartwill Aquila

“Read between the lines
and above and below them
in front and behind.
Soar above the conventional wisdom of the times.
Use honesty of the heart
to mend the soul of humanity
torn by false differences.
Unite in struggle
for justice, for truth,
love
and reverence for life
—the holy force of life—
that sees not the color of a caress
the belief of a kindness,
the nationality of respect
or the titles of mercy.”
Dartwill Aquila

    Hello again Fantelius
    In your kiss list you have included ICH, which is one of my favourite sites for getting a clearer picture of what is really happening in the world, compared to the largely “biased” views of the mainstream media. I thought that you might appreciate another site which is also an antidote to the MSM, which is where the following very informative article comes from

      Thanks for the tip. The voltaire net seems quite authoritive, but I’ll let readers see for themselves before I look more into it. It has the great advantage of reporting in several languages for those uncomfortable with English.
