Murder at the Bakery

This is the handiwork of Bashar al-Assad

Friend of Hizbullah

Friend of Hamas

Whoever supports these butchers is a murderer himself.

Incredible news from the Age!!!

The Age is running a story today entitled '124-year-old' Arab-Israeli woman dies.

The incredible part of the story is that the Israelis haven't been blamed for her death and the story doesn't mention the occupation, settlements or the security fence.

A truly amazing piece of journalism coming from this newspaper.

When are we going to see a cartoon in the Age depicting Hamas supporting Hizbullah helping Assad butcher women and children in Damascus?

They're coming for the Palestinians over there, you know?

This week's letter of the week is the second one.

The first letter is your typical senseless fawning piece of meaningless drivel that always seems to get published in the Age when Leunig comes under attack for one of his offensive assaults on the Jews. Let's hope that Malcolm Chalmers never has to see the reflection of an Iranian made missile coming at him in his mirror.

LEUNIG holds a mirror up to society. Those who condemn the cartoonist don't like, or fear, the reflections.

Well said, Nick Dyrenfurth. Sadly, Leunig has become the cartoon.

The Age seems to have woken up to itself and allowed a response to Leunig's obscenities which it tried to pass of as art.

The opinion piece  by Nick Dyrenfurth Leunig, your provocative use of Nazi analogies is so tiresome is well written, well thought out and covers all the bases but he's being far too polite and probably taking into account the cartoonist's unusual sensibilities.

Not to mention that if he went any further, the Age probably wouldn't publish it or would heavily censor it as it has done recently with other correspondence about its favourite resident Jew basher cartoonist.

And Leunig is not only a Jew basher from way back but he has a record of trying to justify his attacks with gobbledygook, like this rant from back in 2006 - Australian cartoonist on Israel.

When I first read the headline I swear I thought it said Australian con artist on Israel and, as I read through his rambling duck drek of a foamy mouthed rant, I couldn't help but be amused (which is what good cartoonists aspire to, isn't it).

I mean, get a load of his final paragraph:-
If society no longer wants troublesome, disturbing cartoonists who take improbable positions, so be it. But let's not hear any more of Pastor Martin Neimoller's lament: "First they came for the Jews and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew." What sort of a person will dare to speak out? Probably not a perfect one. Maybe even an idiot.
So there you have it. Leunig is not only a nasty piece of work and a hypocrite to boot but by his own admission, he's an idiot too!

The Full Israeli Experience

New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who I mentioned on Monday in a piece on Age cartoon artist Leunig is not averse to criticising Israeli policies from titme to time.

He has however, written this insightful piece The Full Israeli Experience

How does a country deal with failed or failing state authority on four of its borders — Gaza, South Lebanon, Syria and the Sinai Desert of Egypt — each of which is now crawling with nonstate actors nested among civilians and armed with rockets. How should Israel and its friends think about this “Israeli experience” and connect it with the ever-present question of Israeli-Palestinian peace?
What a pity it is that the many so-called experts on the conflict simply won't understand the complexities of the situation and the nasty neighborhood within which Israel, for all of its faults, stands out as a beacon of democracy?

Comparing Nazis to Israelis is unacceptable (except at Fairfax Media and in anti-Semitic circles)

If the Age newspaper wasn't covering for its Jew bashing cartoonist Leunig this excellent response from Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dvir Abramovich is to the Fairfax Media anti-semitic cartoon scandal would have been published in its own pages and not in today's Australian - Comparing Nazis to Israelis is unacceptable
The Anti-Defamation Commission, a human rights organisation, felt that it could not tolerate such inexcusable expression. 

It asked The Age for an opportunity to provide a balancing response to Leunig's cartoon after it was directly attacked in another opinion piece that saw nothing troubling about Leunig's cartoon and instead accused the Jewish community of thoughtlessness and bitterness. 

The ADC was told that The Age would not publish its objections because its claims about the cartoon were unreasonable. 

So Leunig's "First they came for the Palestinians" is OK while offering a counterpoint is unreasonable. 

Leunig accuses the Jewish community of closing doors. 

That is exactly what The Age did
Thanks to the Australian for being decent enough to open those doors.


On the very day on which it published cartoonist Michael Leunig's pithy explanation as to why he discriminates against an Israel which defends its citizens against the war crimes of Palestinian terrorism, this item also appeared in the Age: Netanyahu denounces 'deafening silence' on Hamas.

Speaking to foreign reporters, Mr Netanyahu accused the international community of double standards, condemning settlements that have not yet been built in the West Bank while standing quiet during a historic visit to the Gaza Strip by the exiled leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshal.

Making his first trip to the Hamas-ruled territory at the weekend, Mr Meshal delivered a series of speeches to throngs of supporters vowing to wipe Israel off the map. The visit underscored the rising clout of Hamas and regional acceptance since its eight-day conflict with Israel last month.

Mr Netanyahu also directed his anger at the Palestinian President, Mahmoud Abbas, for not speaking out.

"This weekend the leader of Hamas, sitting next to the Hamas leader of Gaza, a man who praised Osama Bin Laden, this weekend openly called for the destruction of Israel. Where was the outrage? Where were the UN resolutions? Where was President Abbas?" Mr Netanyahu asked.
In case anyone has any doubts about Meshal's message, this news quote says it all: Hamas leader vows never to recognize Israel.

GAZA: Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal, making his first ever visit to the Gaza Strip, vowed on Saturday never to recognize Israel and said his Islamist group would never abandon its claim to all Israeli territory.

“Palestine is ours from the river to the sea and from the south to the north. There will be no concession on an inch of the land,” he told a sea of supporters at an open-air rally, the highlight of his three-day stay in Gaza.

“We will never recognize the legitimacy of the Israeli occupation and therefore there is no legitimacy for Israel, no matter how long it will take.”
This is the same Meshaal who last month was interviewed by CNN's Christiane Amanpour and lied:

In an exclusive interview with CNN’s, Christiane Amanpour, in the Egyptian Capital, Cairo, head of the Hamas Political Bureau, Khaled Mashal, stated that his movement is not behind the Tel Aviv bombing that took place Wednesday, and confirmed that Hamas accepts a Palestinian State in the 1967 territory, and is willing to join the nonviolent resistance.
In the last century another leader who was also an enemy of the Jews lied to the world about his intentions. Only fools like Leunig would accept such treachery to justify their attacks on the only true democracy in the region and its people. Try ducking out of that one!
