PLO executive committee member Zahir Muhsein, made remarks including these points in ’77:

  • The “Palestinian people” does not exist.
  • The creation of a Palestinian state is only a means for continuing our struggle against Israel.
  • In reality there is no difference between Jordanians, Palestinians, Syrians and Lebanese.
  • Only for political and tactical reasons do we speak about the existence of a Palestinian people, since Arab interests demand the existence of a distinct “Palestinian people” to oppose Zionism.
  • The moment we get all of Palestine, we will not wait even a minute to unite Palestine and Jordan.

–from interview of Muhsein by Trouw newspaper, published 3/31/77 in Holland.

Yasser Arafat and other Palistinian Liberation Organization heads made similar statements.

Israel is the size of New Jersey. Many ethnicities reside in Israel including, of course, Arabs.

Compare the size of Israel to the size of the surrounding hostile lands now held by Arabs where Jews have been driven out, persecuted, murdered:

Redactico: In His Own Words

“I offer no opinion, as is my habit.”

“I happen to be trained in sticking to the evidence.”

“I have been quite clear about what I think.”

“I would caution anyone interested in this story (and public about their interest) to exercise caution. Assume there may be hackers who want to target you.”

“I know he [Lee Stranahan] has been saying and implying things about me that are simply not accurate. …I disabled his account here at … after I read this post of his…”

“…threats have been made and law enforcement is involved…”

“I am not going to say where I got anything from anyone.”

“Clearly JohnReid9 has used this site [] to disseminate information.”

“Lee Stranahan has a new post up saying he will stop commenting on Weinergate, as it is in the hands of law enforcement. I am in total agreement…”

7/3/11: “Alicia Pain is not necessarily in the same category as the rest [Nikki Reid, JohnReid9, Marinela Alicea, Mark Alicea, PatriotUSA76]. I mean nobody is NECESSARILY in the same category, but she especially is not.” [I find this comment to be extremely interesting -ed]

In response to this question: Is there an active investigation by law enforcement? “No comment.” [gee, I would think if there wasn’t one, and you weren’t trying to mislead people or spread disinformation, you would just answer “No.” -ed]

“1) Who first mentioned JG to Lee? 2) Who first brought Marianela Alicea tweets to Tommy Christopher’s attention?”

In response to this comment: …St. Louis Activist Hub brought up the name Jenny George in CA initially., “You answered #1. On to #2! Hint: you answered #2.” [ummm STLAH was working off of az5thdstrct’s find  -ed]

Re a comment mistakenly attributed to Patterico:  “I found out about the Patterico comment from JohnReid9. I was appalled.”

“I do not publicly subscribe to the position that JohnReid9 is a liar…”

In response to: Did JR9 traffic originate from the LA area? That is where Nikki claimed to live.,  “That is not the kind of question I am going to answer.”

“It can’t be said enough: ‘Brett Kimberlin, Speedway Bomber.’…”

“That has apparently made you [R0n] overly suspicious, to the point where you think longtime commenters here are sock puppets, or that I was an imposter when I last called you.”

7/20/11: “Law enforcement is doing something.”

In response to daleyrock’s comment: R0n – I know what your voice sounds like., “One day, we’ll all know what R0n’s voice sounds like. R0n’s Twitters tonight sound surprisingly sane. Guilty, yeah. But sane.”

“I see other O’Keefe related items [written by Patterico] that they cross-posted there [Big Government]. I’m not sure I even realized those were all cross-posted. But it was definitely not false for him to call me a BG contributor.”

I am surprised by Mike’s level of vitriol towards Dan

Re Mike’s feelings about Dan Wolfe disappearing: “I can see why someone might WANT to disappear, given everything that has gone on.”

“Dan Wolfe is a fraud.

And Dan Wolfe is JohnReid9.

In my opinion.

And R0n Bryneart is in league with them and Neal Rauhauser. … To sow confusion. And do other evil things.”

“Dan Wolfe: fraud. I tell him what happened to my family and he laughs.”

“Why would Dan refuse to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation that I told him was serious?”

“Dustin, if you like, I will delete the link to R0n’s post. I will also consider posting his IP, as well as … [personal and misleading] information I previously deleted.”

“I tend to discount the theories that Wolfe/Reid was a ‘troll.’ I think it was a full-time job.”

“I’m still not clear on whether the R0n/Neal/Darrah Ford side of this is connected to the Wolfe/Reid/Nikki side….”

“R0n isn’t just a ‘troll,’…”

“They [R0n and Dan] both have something to hide.”

“I agree [that ‘R0n’, ‘Neil’ and ‘Kimberlin’ are ‘in desperation mode’]. They are terrified.”

“R0n was going to do it all on his own. Now we need a different purportedly crazy lefty hack criminal to come in and take his place.”

“[GC] has written me to say that she is showing the DMs to Mike Stack but not to me. … Toe the line and she’ll dole out the tidbits. Otherwise, you and your desire to solve who has been menacing your family can go hang. I am more suspicious of her than ever.”

“…I have to wonder whether the person commenting here is even the real [GC].”

“It may become more clear when I lay out all the facts showing Dan Wolfe is JohnReid9.”

“Oh, and qritiq, who also claims to have secret evidence [BIG FAT LIE -ed] that she won’t let me see because she doesn’t like how I treated her, is now DM’ing with Gennette.” [HORRORS! – why would someone writing about Weinergate want to DM with GC?? Clearly SUSPICIOUS -ed]

“I believe we are going to get the bad guys and send them to prison. There was some progress on that front today. Were I one of the bad guys, I would be nervous right about now.”

“Just what is the interest of qritiq … in all this anyway?” [VERY SUSPICIOUS that a former political contributor for an alt-weekly would have any interest in political intrigue. -ed]

“My guess is that [qritiq] is just a nosy busybody who doesn’t have anything of value.” [Fuck you. -ed]

Re GC being permitted to respond to her accusers: “She will comment here when it suits me. Right now, it doesn’t.”

“What got Reid talking like that? I told him I am going to reveal all the reasons I think he is Dan Wolfe.” [any day now, any day… -ed]




off topic, but I ran into this tidbit too, just regarding comments pre-7/5:

I googled
koam – 1,290 results
@wittier – 590
koam @wittier – 572
koam – 171

Way too many, I know, I know.

Ad Campaign

Posted in crime, spin with tags , , , , on August 5, 2011 by Qritiq

As a former teacher of various ages of children, and former girl myself, I know what the following terms mean:

(these are approximations)

little girl: 3-6 years old
young girl: 7-10 years old
girl: 11-14 years old
older girl: 15-16 years old

I think when I was living a few states away from my parents and in college at 17, I would have told you to go %$&# yourself if you’d called me a “young girl.”

A big part of the social media operation to discredit Anthony Weiner, is to try to instill in the public’s mind, the phrase “Weiner and young girls”. It is a marketing campaign, and the phrase “young girls” is by no means random. The phrase was chosen very carefully as a misstatement that people might not even notice, but that would evoke a reflexive disgust toward Anthony Weiner if and when his name became associated with this phrase. The phrase appears no less than 13 times in an interview with the (still anonymous) person who said he saw the “underwear” picture tweeted from the RepWeiner twitter account.   Do you think anyone actually believes that Anthony Weiner was sending underwear shots from his Blackberry to 7-10-year-olds?

The goal of the operation was NOT RepWeiner’s resignation. That is why, even after “Weinergate”, this social media disinformation campaign is ongoing.  Even though RepWeiner has resigned, he is still eminently electable in New York, as polls have borne out. He will be even more electable one year from now.

When I type:  Weiner “young girls”  into google, I get “About 2,700,000 results”. And when I type Weiner “young girl”, I get back “About 2,980,000 results”.

Below is a sampling from just one short blog page. I include commenters as well as the Breitbart-associated blogger, because it is likely that those involved in the operation are frequent commenters on internet blogs and forums, as well as on twitter. Commenting under multiple nicknames and I.D.’s is an important way for social media propagandists to disseminate mistruths. You may notice that a number of “commenters” discussing “Weiner” and “young girls” on certain blogs, write better than the average person. We know that at least one person involved in this operation is a professional marketer.

Patterico: “the involvement of young girls in this story”

Patterico commenter: “the evidence we have about the young girl”

“I have no trouble drawing inferences from the young girl’s own words based on a solitary proven recitation of Weiner’s rather unique fantasy.” 

Patterico commenter: “enticed one of these young girls to a motel”

Patterico commenter: “he is a virtual fornicator— with young girls”
