“The Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University’s (CFHU) Toronto Chapter will present the esteemed Key of Knowledge award to Morgan Freeman in recognition of his work in combating segregation and prejudice, and promoting knowledge, learning and education throughout the world.”Predictably, Israel-haters including the usual BDSers are up in arms, and a furious campaign on social media has been launched in order to bring pressure on Mr Freeman to refuse the honour.
"A man of Morgan Freeman's stature would be a political victory for the Israeli's if he accepted the keys. Mr Freeman, please refuse, Israel is an apartheid regime far worse than South Africa ever was."So comments someone named Latifa, from France.
'There is an abundance of evidence which proof that Israel is an apartheid state, that its existence consistently infringe upon the rights of Palestinians to even exists. [sic] The Key of Knowledge award from the Canadian Friends of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel's effort to whitewash its continued oppression of the Palestinian people. Please, please do not aid them in maintaining the ghettos and banstustans in Palestine.'So comments an apparently Chinese student at Princeton.
Those are among the latest of the many slurs against Israel on a petition to Mr Freeman that's been opened.
Let's hope that Morgan Freeman recognises ignorance and malevolence when he sees it and that the hatred and libel does not succeed.
Those sounds like canned sound bytes distributed by an organization. They're not even trying to pretend they come from real people in "France" and "China" anymore.ReplyDelete

Here's an antisemitic comment if ever I've seen one:ReplyDelete
"It's all too late for Israel and the Jewish state. They have lost control of the international media, social media and blogosphere. The truth is out, Israel is a brutal apartheid state that has no place in the 21st century. The real demographic threat is not the Palestinians but the whole international community and there are 7 billion goyim to 15 million Jews, Jews who don't all support Zionism in any case. Short answer is, Israel is over! They can scream and cry all over the internet until the cows come home, it is too late. Zionism is an embarrassment for the Jewry and a crime on humanity. Get over it. They are all Palestinians now. The 'success plan', to throw away Gaza, add more Jews and ignore the right of return while punishing the Palestinian population... it's a failure now and will only demonstrate Jewish tendencies to oppressive behaviours that will explode on the whole Jewry. Time for Israel to grow up and embrace its inner Palestinian."
It's on the "Independent" website http://www.independent.co.uk/voices/comment/israel-is-addicted-to-settlements-obama-should-stop-enabling-its-selfdestruction-8550162.html
Time for vile, degenerate anti-Semites to grow up and get over the fact that Israel is defended by the world's best warriors. Israel is not going away. Not now. Not ever. No matter how much the eurotrash hate Jews. Put on your big boy panties and deal with it.ReplyDelete
Pass the matzoh. :)
Wouldn't it be nice if these people (he said generously, as to the label used) could actually define "apartheid" and thus have a basis for their assertions. Given that they don't even know what the word means, they should be (a) sent back to school/college to learn the importance of using words correctly; (b) barred from commenting anywhere but their own sites (i.e., don't pollute the blogosphere with their offensive stupidity) until they can produce a certificate of sensibility; and (c) even then, get barred if they fail to produce evidence and rational argument.ReplyDelete
At the very least, it would stop them from giving me a headache thinking up new ways of saying, politely because I don't want to get barred, that they are idiots, poltroons and fools.
I feel better now. Until the next time I run into them!
Poltroons! Great word.Delete
