Massive BDS Fail in Parramatta

Well the Facebook page was being hammered, they were posting everywhere, had a massive list of speakers.  It was going to be a big fest against Max Brenners in Parramatta yesterday.  They even organised it to be on the Jewish Sabbath to keep opposition numbers.

The Parramatta council warned there would be fines for not obeying the rules.  "Freedom of Speech"  they shouted.  "You can't stop us!!"

They got 20 people.  Yep, that's it. 20. 
The main organiser is a very angry young man.  Devout Muslim. 

He must have been a bit miffed at the clientele, enjoying their nice hot chocolate:


This campaign is doing wonders for Max Brenners publicity, and they are laughing all the way to the bank.  I went to the Melbourne Central shop today.  The queues to order were out the door.  And yes, as always, there were many hijabs prominent. 

Thanks to Shirlee Finn for the write up and the photos.

Moon admits UN Bias against Israel

Well, surprise, surprise, Ban Ki Moon has finally admitted what was in plain sight - The UN is biased against Israel

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon met with students at the UN headquarters in Jerusalem on Friday afternoon, and admitted that his organization was biased against Israel. 

Responding to a student who said Israelis felt their country was discriminated against in the international organization, Ban confirmed that there was a biased attitude towards the Israeli people and Israeli government, stressing that it was "an unfortunate situation."
 This is, of course, no surprise and really confirms what everybody knew.

Addressing the attitude towards Israel, Ban said that the Jewish state was a UN member and should therefore be treated equally like all other 192 member states. Unfortunately, he added, Israel has been criticized and sometimes discriminated against because of the Mideast conflict.

A peace process is just a piece of paper, he said, adding that the Oslo Agreement was never implemented and remained a piece of paper. "This time I expect real peace," he said. "The Israeli and Palestinian people are neighbors and have no choice but to live in harmony and peace side by side."

Asked about the split between Fatah and Hamas, the UN chief responded that reconciliation between Israel and the Palestinians was highly important. "There can be no solution of three states – the State of Israel and two Palestinian states. The vision is of a two-state solution, and that's the reason we are trying to advance a Palestinian reconciliation process," he said.

This is important - he has acknowledged that there is only a two state solution to peace.  Not a one state or three state solution.  At least they are honest when not playing politics.

Tom Scott doesn't understand Peace Talks

Tom Scott's latest effort on the current peace talks

So its clear Tom is trying to show bias by the US, and blaming Israel for something.

Maybe he could have drawn something that demonstrates Palestinian violence and recalcitrance, but this would be inconsistent with his usual bias.  At least he wasn't anti-semitic this time, I would have hated to complain to the HRC.
