Shit totally fucking hysterical Zionists say

Normally this blog is pretty serious as I  generally write about the terrible injustices perpetrated against the Palestinian people by apartheid Israel. I write a lot about BDS and Don’t Play Apartheid Israel (DPAI)’s Facebook pages calling on musicians not to play in Israel and on those pages, as well as official band pages, the hasbara hysterics come out in force if there’s even a whiff of a cancellation.  There is an amazing amount of racism, bullying, wailing and outright lies to be found wherever the Zionists congregate, I’ve written up some of the threats and vile campaigns against artists thinking of or actually cancelling here and here, as well as the targetting of activists.  The racism is beyond contempt and is characteristic of much of the Zionist discourse around BDS when it comes to gigs in apartheid Israel. Also typical is abject self-pity where the cancellation of a concert is greeted with hysterical claims of “collective punishment” and “victimisation” and those who previously claimed that politics and music are totally unconnected then scream about how the artists are supporting Palestinian”terror” etc.

Tellingly those who see a small infringement of their privilege as collective punishment have absolutely no problem with the actual and illegal collective punishment of the Palestinian people, particularly those in Gaza. The only injustice that matters is the perceived injustice of not being able to see a band live. Such hysteria, along with the endless invocation of somewhere else activists should focus on (Libya last year, Syria at the moment, Iran always) and the ubiquitous pinkwashing, are straight from the hasbara manual – read enough of it and you will truly understand the sensation of boring into your own skull with a drill.

The final piece of the jigsaw involves enumerating Israel’s ‘accomplishments’ as if to say: look we’re civilised, we’ve DONE GREAT STUFF, so let’s not let a 64 years of occupation, ethnic cleansing, apartheid and war crimes put you off playing here, it’s for peace you know.

If all of the above has not exorcised enough demons for the hasbara poster, they can, and usually do, resort to name-calling and attempted bullying, often accompanied by outlandish claims about those who support BDS being ‘funded’. This is especially ironic as it is the hasbarists who are actually funded to spout bullshit on social networking sites. A tactic I’ve noticed regularly is the semi-competent use of Google and then a reference to something personal like where you come from or where you work in an effort to intimidate – as most people with access to even the most basic technology can use Google and better, this constitutes an epic fail.  It reminds me of my last trip to Palestine when I spent hours in Ben Gurion airport being ‘accused’ of working for an NGO – yes Israel is that warped.

Irish band Dervish have just cancelled their dates in Israel and this has thrown up the usual hasbara detritus on their Facebook page, amidst which there is also much unintended hilarity.  I posted some of this on my own page and with some friends, decided that it would be fun to look at some of the more comical zionist ranting, hence the profane name for this blog post.

The post that inspired this:

“LMAO at this band attempting to sit on the fence while simultaniously boycotting a country surrounded by a bunch of Arabs that want to see it destroyed. Israel has been at war with the savages that refuse to tollerate Israels existence, yet the world is siding with the intollerant Muslims while demonizing Israel. The world turning against Israel, now was this not prophesied to happen. Everything is right on schedule thanks for doing your part in satans agenda you bunch of lunatics.”

Followed by:

“To all Jews and Israelis arguing on this page, lets just give up. Yeah guys we need to stop the pretense and call it like is is. Yes Israel is an evil empire, led secretly by Satan and Darth Vader, its merely a small part of the Jewish plot to rule the world, and kill unicorns. Lets just come clean about murdering Palestinians in their sleep, ooh and also drinking the blood of young catholic boys. hey I personally crucified Jesus. and It was Israelis who put snakes in Ireland in the first place. I mean common this is the only narrative that these people will except. Hell I truly doubt that these educated Irish and Europeans, even truly want peace and brotherhood between Jews and Muslims, because then they’d simply have nothing to protest against and feel all self important.”

A deranged ‘accusation’ against me by Irish4Israel (you wish some of this shit was true….)

“Rich from you Zoe, One of the major proponents of Arabist propaganda well funded by oil on Irish facebook pages.”

Putting things in perspective for Dervish:

“YOU are the terrorist bomb of the modern times. They turn to your kindness and humanity and your music, and turn it into a weapon. It hurts Israel where it hurts most- in the morale, in the love Israelis have for art and music, in their wishes to live peacefully and quietly, to go catch a show, have a drink with friends. Friends who can definitely be Palestinian, if it wasn’t for decades and maybe centuries of Palestinians educated to hate the bad Israeli oppressor.”

The timeless classic,  references to computer parts:

“Please also boycott all computers and mobile phones as they contain Israeli-invented components!!”

“and if I failed to convince you to drop the case, and you’r still overzealous about this whole boycott freedom fighting trend, be true with yourself- make sure u boycott everything:– no more Windows OS, no more Apple comps (since they recently opened an R&D center in israel!!), no more intel chips (all developed in ISRAEL), no more cell phones with cameras (INVENTED IN ISRAEL), no more instant messaging (INVENTED BY two 17 year old ISRAELIS) and def no more FACEBOOK, for it is owned by a JEW! but aye, i guess the end justifies the means.. pfff”

Zionist ranting is not complete without multiple references to Haaamaaaaaaaaaaaasssss:

“let it be kbown that i have heard that the bds uses some pretty shady tactics to threaten artists to cancel shows in the name of peace. oddly, much like hamas.”
