Twitter faces 48-hour boycott over ‘failure to tackle antisemitism’

Anti-racism campaigners and public figures have joined calls for a mass walkout from Twitter in protest at the site’s failure to sufficiently tackle antisemitism.
 
Users of the platform are being urged not to post on the platform for 48 hours from Monday at 9am. The action comes after Twitter failed to remove the account of British grime artist Wiley following a string of hate-filled posts to his half-a-million followers between Friday and Saturday morning.

“Wiley’s is just one of a recent number of high profile and influential Twitter accounts that has incited racial hatred against Jews, receiving an insufficient response from the platform provider,” said organisers of the campaign that includes actress Tracy-Ann Oberman. “This incident reflects the need for clear legislation, such as the Online Harm Reduction Bill.”

Activist Saul Freeman, who tweets under @nuddering, approached Oberman with the idea of a mass walkout after she tweeted on Friday night that she might stop using the platform.
 
Twitter faced sustained criticism from the Jewish community and high-profile figures beyond including Piers Morgan after only removing a few of Wiley’s tweets and slapping him with a week-long ban, rather than taking down his account.
 
Among dozens who have already pledged to join the walkout before it was even publicly announced are anti-racism campaigner Sir Trevor Phillips, singer Beverley Knight, comedian Shappi Khorsandi, former MP Luciana Berger, broadcaster Maajid Nawaz and writers Nick Cohen and Sathnam Sanghera. The call for action also has the backing of the CST, Board of Deputies and the Jewish Leadership Council.
 
A spokesperson for the campaign said: “The action we are announcing today is to show that the Jewish community and its allies have had enough of platforms like Twitter acting as loudspeakers for antisemitism, amplifying the hatred of Jews to millions of other social media users.
“As soon as Wiley began posting his antisemitic tweets on Friday Twitter was flooded with requests to have his account taken down. In response Twitter deleted a couple of his tweets and gave the grime star a brief suspension. It was a completely inadequate response. Unless there is an immediate change in how Twitter operates then there will be further action, including legal action, against the organisation.”
 
Karen Pollock, chief executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, said: “Recent weeks have seen people around the world come together to express their revulsion at racism. People will be disgusted at Wiley’s torrent of appalling racist messages, the length of time it took Twitter to deal with them and its pathetic response. This is a well-known musician with thousands of followers, many of them young and impressionable. Social media companies should live up to the values their users expect.”
 
Supporters are being urged to tweet at #nosafespaceforjewhate in the lead up the the walkout.

Israeli Flag Flown On Temple Mount For First Since 1967
(PNW) – A major step towards fixing the broken heart of the Jewish people on the Temple Mount was made on Tish B’Av, the day commemorating the destruction of the Temples: the Israeli flag was displayed for the first time since Israel conquered its holiest site in the 1967 Six-Day War.
Despite coronavirus restrictions and threats of Muslim violence, almost 1,000 Jews ascended to the Temple Mount on Tisha B’Av.

Beirut blast: Explosion rocks city with many injured
4 minutes ago

Media captionBeirut blast leaves extensive damage
A large blast has hit the Lebanese capital, Beirut, causing widespread damage and injuring many people, officials say.
 
It is not yet clear what caused the explosion in the port area of the city. Video posted online showed a large mushroom cloud and destroyed buildings.
 
Hospitals are said to be overwhelmed by casualties.
 
It comes at a sensitive time with the country's economic collapse reigniting old tensions.
 
Tensions are also high ahead of the verdict in a trial over the killing of ex-PM Rafik Hariri in 2005. A UN tribunal is due to issue its verdict in the trial of four suspects in the murder by car bomb of Hariri on Friday.
 
Follow our live updates
Lebanon's health minister, Hamad Hasan, has spoken of many injuries and extensive damage.
 
Reuters news agency quotes sources as saying 10 bodies have been pulled from the wreckage.
 
The cause of the explosion is still not known, but some reports suggest it may have been an accident. Lebanon's National News Agency reported a fire breaking out at what it called an explosives depot at the port.

Local media showed people trapped beneath rubble. A witness described the first explosion as deafening. Video footage showed wrecked cars and blast-damaged buildings.
 
The latest reports come amid political tension in Lebanon, with street demonstrations against the government's handling the worst economic crisis since the 1975-1990 civil war.
 
There has also been tension on the border with Israel, which said last week that it had thwarted an attempt by Hezbollah to infiltrate Israeli territory.
 
Lebanon: Why the country is in crisis
'Glass going down from all over the building'
Hadi Nasrallah, eyewitness speaking to the BBC
 
I saw the fire, but I didn't yet know there was going to be an explosion. We went inside. Suddenly I lost my hearing because apparently I was too close. I lost my hearing for a few seconds, I knew something was wrong.
 
And then suddenly the glass just shattered all over the car, the cars around us, the shops, the stores, the buildings. Just glass going down from all over the building.
 
Literally all over Beirut, people were calling each other from different areas kilometres away and they were experiencing the same thing: broken glass, buildings shaking, a loud explosion.
 
Actually we were shocked because usually when it happens, just one area will experience those happenings after an explosion, but this time it was all of Beirut, even areas outside of Beirut.
 
Shock and anxiety
By Sebastian Usher, BBC Arab affairs analyst
 
The videos and images not just of the massive cloud of smoke erupting in Beirut but the damage and devastation it's caused kilometres away have triggered a new wave of shock and anxiety in Lebanon, which is already teetering on the brink of a catastrophic economic collapse.
 
Just hours before the blast, anti-government protesters had been scuffling with the security forces outside the ministry of energy, demanding yet again accountability from the country's leaders.
 
There have been grave warnings of hunger in the streets or a reigniting of sectarian conflict if the economy worsens.
 
And the blast will remind many of the bomb that killed Rafik Hariri. The Lebanese will be hoping that this latest blast will remain a human tragedy - an accident - and not a premeditated

israel map worthy christian news
(Worthy News) - Officers from the 401st Armored Brigade as well as from the Givati and Nahal infantry brigades were training when The Jerusalem Post visited IDF Training Command Headquarters at the Julis base near Ashkelon this week to watch as they virtually trained for a future war with Hezbollah.
 
“It’s like a videogame, but these are real places where troops and officers might go,” said Col. Eliav Elbaz, commander of the brigade’s training base.
 
Officers experience fighting in simulated urban terrain similar to that of Lebanon, complete with the street they might find themselves walking down and the mosque they might pass when in a village in southern Lebanon, he said. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]

Israel and the United Arab Emirates on Thursday announced the “normalisation of relations” between them – with Israel agreeing not to declare sovereignty over the West Bank and Jordan Valley as a result.
 
The landmark moment, delivered in a joint statement together with the United States, heralds a new era of diplomatic and economic connections between Jerusalem and the Gulf states, and took political analysts by surprise.
 
 
The letter, posted online by Donald Trump, said Israel and the UAE “share a similar outlook regarding threats and opportunities in the region,” in reference to Iran-sponsored militias and regimes.

Describing it as “an historic diplomatic breakthrough” that required “courage” from both Israel and Abu Dhabi, they said agreements would be signed in the coming week that would cover investment, tourism, direct flights, security, telecoms, energy, healthcare, the environment “and other areas of mutual benefit”.
 
 
It will also lead to the creation of an Emirati embassy in Israel and an Israeli embassy in Abu Dhabi – a first for both Gulf states and Jerusalem – while stipulating a halt on Israeli sovereignty claims, in order to pursue further bilateral relations.
 
“As a result of this historic breakthrough and at the request of President Trump with the support of the United Arab Emirates, Israel will now suspend declaring sovereignty over areas outlined in the President’s Vision for Peace and focus its efforts now on expanding ties with other countries in the Arab and Muslim world.”
 
ANALYSIS: US-Israel-UAE deal is a win-win-win. 
 
Board of Deputies’ president Marie van der Zyl said: “I warmly welcome the normalisation of ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates. This is a historic development and an important step for prosperity, peace and security in the region.”

Israel and UAE recently raised eyebrows by agreeing to work together on medical efforts to combat the coronavirus, including a vaccine, and said they would “immediately expand and accelerate cooperation” in this area.
 
It remains to be seen whether other Sunni Muslim kingdoms in the Gulf will follow the UAE’s lead in normalising relations with Israel, but the three signatories said they were “confident that additional diplomatic breakthroughs” in the region.
 
Crown Prince Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, 59, has ruled the Emirate of Abu Dhabi since 2004 and been the region’s most active in facilitating external relations with countries such as France, Singapore and Russia, even mediating between Washington and Moscow, while in 2010 he hosted The Queen.
 
He is a driving force behind military efforts to remove the Iran-backed Houthi militia from Yemen and voiced anger at President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.

Turkey: President Erdogan threatens to suspend diplomatic ties with UAE over deal with Israel
By Pamela Geller - on August 14, 2020

And Islamic Jew-hatred is a central tenet of Islam.
 
Erdogan threatens to suspend diplomatic ties with UAE over deal with Israel
We could withdraw our ambassador,’ Turkish president tell reporters of potential response
 
By: i24, August 13, 2020:
 
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that Turkey could suspend diplomatic relations with the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after the announcement of a landmark deal between Israel and the Gulf state.
 
“I gave an order to the foreign minister. I said we could suspend diplomatic relations with the Abu Dhabi administration or withdraw our ambassador,” Erdogan told reporters.
 
In the deal announced on Thursday by the US, Israel pledged to suspend its planned annexation of Palestinian lands in exchange for a normalization of ties with the UAE.
 
The Palestinian Authority (PA) on Thursday announced the “immediate” recall of its ambassador to the UAE in protest at the deal.
 
Erdogan, a pious Muslim, is a strong advocate of the Palestinians who has frequently criticized Israeli policies in the West Bank and Gaza.
 
Earlier this year he criticized Washington’s Middle East peace plan for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as “treason.”
“History will not forget those who betray the Palestinian people and sell out the Palestinian cause,” Erdogan’s spokesman, Ibrahim Kalin, tweeted on Friday. “Turkey will continue to stand by the Palestinian people.”

Anti-fascists warn of new antisemitic group with neo-Nazi adherents
Hope Not Hate raises alarm over Patriotic Alternative, which was created by a former BNP activist who described the Holocaust as the ‘alleged extermination of six million Jews’

Anti-fascist campaigners in the UK have warned of a virulent new far-right group that spreads Holocaust denial in its efforts to push a white nationalist agenda.
 
Researchers at Hope Not Hate (HNH) reported this week on the threat from Patriotic Alternative (PA), an antisemitic group with neo-Nazi adherents created in 2019 by Mark Collett, the former head of publicity for the British National Party.
HNH researcher Simon Murdoch said: “Collett is a longstanding antisemite who has spoken sympathetically of Nazi Germany, described the Holocaust as the ‘alleged extermination of six million Jews’, and has regularly collaborated with David Duke, a former leader in the Ku Klux Klan.”

PA is described in the report as “a racist far-right organisation with antisemitism at its very core” which aims to combat what it says is the “replacement and displacement” of white Britons by people who “have no right to these lands”.

Its supporters hold fast to a conspiracy theory that Jewish elites are the driving force behind this ‘replacement and displacement’, with PA’s manifesto saying: “No minority should ever be allowed to wield disproportionate power over the British people or hold disproportionate influence over or within the government.”
 
In a nod to some well-worn antisemitic tropes, the group warns of “unscrupulous lenders or predatory providers of financial services” and says Britain “should never be used as a pawn for foreign powers”.
 
Several members were unabashed about their Holocaust denial in group messages, the HNH report detailed. One wrote: “Public Service Announcement: A factoid is a claim that is widely accepted as fact through repetition but isn’t necessarily (and often isn’t) true, such as the Holocaust.”
 
Another described the Holocaust as “the single most overhyped event in history,” adding: “The West has been blinded since 1945 by the Holocaust story but this is wearing off.” Yet another said: “We’re finding out that more and more Holocaust survivors… Survived. Almost like as if the Holocaust never happened…”
 
Collett, a proud fan of National Socialism, published a book in 2017 describing the “alleged extermination of six million Jews”, adding: “When it comes to the notion of white guilt, nothing is pushed more strongly.”
 
Murdoch said: “PA are smaller and less influential than they claim and their longevity is uncertain, but they are certainly one of the fastest rising threats in the UK far right.”

 The Stunning Peace Deal Between Israel And The UAE A Prelude To Formally Dividing The Land Of Israel?
Aug 17, 2020 09:17 am
Is The Stunning Peace Deal Between Israel And The UAE A Prelude To Formally Dividing The Land Of Israel?
(OPINION) Michael Snyder – Last week’s surprise announcement of a peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates caught just about everyone by surprise. I hadn’t heard anything about a potential deal in the works, and the mainstream media in the western world was completely blindsided by the deal.
 
But this has become Israel’s pattern in recent decades. The Oslo Accords, Israel’s peace deal with Jordan and other agreements were negotiated under a cloak of total secrecy because officials didn’t want the public sentiment to potentially destroy negotiations.
President Trump is touting this as a major diplomatic victory, and he is hoping that it will sway some votes in November.  At this juncture, Trump is trailing badly in most polls and he needs another miracle as we witnessed in 2016. But it was really Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that was the driving force behind this deal.
He has been seeking to build relations with the UAE for many, many years, and this deal is the culmination of those efforts. In order to get this deal, however, Netanyahu had to agree not to annex any land in the West Bank…
 
The United Arab Emirates has normalized relations with Israel in a historic US-brokered deal that “suspends” Israeli annexation of occupied land sought by the Palestinians for their future state. The surprise agreement, initially announced by the US president, Donald Trump, makes the UAE the first Gulf country and only the third Arab nation in the world to have active diplomatic ties with Israel, joining Egypt and Jordan.
 
This is a very odd development because too many people it seemed like Netanyahu was dead set on annexing portions of Judea and Samaria. In fact, he specifically promised to do so during the last election. Could it be possible that all of that rhetoric was just a negotiating ploy?
 
If Israel had really gone ahead and annexed those lands, it would have killed any international efforts to create a Palestinian state. But now that annexation is completely dead, the potential for a “peace deal” that would create a Palestinian state is very much alive.
 
According to the New York Times, the relationship between Israel and the UAE “had been building quietly for years”, and according to a British news source this peace agreement will also open a door for “deals on direct flights, security, telecommunications, energy, tourism, and healthcare”…

Peace Between Israel And UAE Revealed in Bible Codes According to Rabbi

Peace Between Israel And UAE Revealed in Bible Codes According to Rabbi
(OPINION) ETH – An alleged “Bible Code Expert” named Rabbi Mattityahu Glazerson has come out recently and claimed that within just hours after the newly-minted peace agreement between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was announced, he was able to discover what he called “the best appearance” of the Hebrew word ichud which means unity and the Hebrew for Emirates.
“It’s unbelievable. It came once in the Torah in a significant way,” he noted. Glazerson claims he found the codes where God told Abraham that Isaac would be born to him and Sara and that, though Ishmael (the Biblical ancestor of Arabs) would be blessed with material prosperity and large populations, God’s covenant would remain eternally with the descendants of Isaac (the Jewish nation).
Then God said: “No, Sarah your wife shall bear you a son, and you shall call his name Isaac; I will establish My covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, and with his descendants after him. And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful, and will multiply him exceedingly. He shall beget twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation.
– Genesis 17:19-20
The rabbi claimed that 840, which is the numerical value of shematicha (I have heeded you), corresponds to the number of years the Arabs would have control of the Land of Israel. This word appears in the Hebrew in Genesis 17:20. BIN states:
“In other words, embedded in the Hebrew is a promise that God will bless Ishmael’s descendants with dominion over the Land of Israel for 840 years. We find this hint in the exact verse where God promises Abraham that, although the eternal covenant rests with Isaac and his descendants, the descendants of Ishmael will also benefit from Divine favor".
