The dreaded foot in mouth syndrome

A guest post by Leon Bertrand
Our old friend Jeremy Sear has put his foot in his mouth again with this ridiculous post, which endorses the following quote:
The problem is that nowhere does the author and alleged witness state that he saw Israeli soldiers ‘execute’ anyone. In spite of the title of the post Jeremy links to and quotes, the only ‘evidence’ is that the alleged witness allegedly saw that one of his ‘brothers’ was shot between the eyes. But he didn’t see the actual shooting.
Furthermore, one only needs to read the alleged witness’s rant to know he’s a bit of a nut:

I argued that the only viable way to stop the invasion was to conduct a mass migration to Iraq. A migration in which people from around the world, especially western citizens, would position themselves at sites in Iraq that are supposed to be protected by international law, but which are routinely bombed when it is only Iraqi, Palestinian, generally non-white, western lives who will be killed. I felt 10,000 such people could stop the invasion, or at the very least, expose the invasion for what it was from the start, an act of international aggression, a war crime and a crime against humanity.

Hardly the most credible and impartial witness. So the question is why Jeremy would be so keen to promote the idea that IDF soldiers had executed those on board the ‘flotilla’ when there was very little basis for such  conclusion. Did he only read the heading? Or is he a hater of Israel?

    Good post Leon and I think that this clip adds to the equation .

  2. Ray Dixon says:

    I can’t understand how anyone can defend either side in this absurd conflict or be bothered writing about it. Armchair experts the lot of you. I wish people would just ignore the whole mess over there until they either clean up their acts or kill each other off.

  3. Leon Bertrand says:

    No response from Jeremy; an implicit admission he has been pwned.

  4. Ray Dixon says:

    It’s the opening of the ski season. We have snow down here.

  5. Iain Hall says:

    yeah Leon, Ray might be on to something, Jeremy might be up having fun in the snow hence no commentary at his own blog either

  6. Ray Dixon says:

    Maybe he took ‘Two Ls” with him? He’s been quiet too, since J converted him to the Greens.

  7. Iain Hall says:

    Well perhaps there is some weird Hazing ritual that the new initiates to the party have to go through and Jezza is obliged to take Two LLs through it . Some ritual cleansing of his old beliefs, followed by being anointed with the froth of a decaf soy Latte …

  8. Leon Bertrand says:

    He still takes the time to engage in old-fashioned Israel bashing, so he can’t be too preoccupied with the snow.

  9. Iain Hall says:

    The left and Antisemitism go together like bread and butter … so you may be right there Leon

  10. Ray Dixon says:

    No, Iain, the left are ‘haters’. Didn’t you know? I hate both sides in that conflict.

  11. Iain Hall says:

    Well I can respect an equal opportunity hater Ray 😉
