Look who has blocked me on Twitter

Look who has blocked me on Twitter

Rogues gallery.

So … I just noticed that Stanley Cohen, the pro-Hamas tax convict who, after release from prison, was held out as representing some anti-Israel teenager even though his law license was suspended, has blocked me on Twitter.

I think this tweet of mine is what did it:

Here are some others. It’s not a complete list, for sure. This is just from memory.

Steven Salaita, the hate-tweeting almost U. Illinois – Urbana Champaign professor, now resident in Beirut:

Code Pink, which recently hired Ithaca anti-Israel activist Ariel Gold; one of her first acts as a Code Pinker was to disrupt prayers at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Robert Mackey, formerly with the NY Times, now with The Intercept. He blocked me when I questioned some of his questionable sources during the Gaza war.

Justice4Rasmea, which is really, really upset with me for documenting Rasmea Odeh’s supermarket bombing complicity and documenting the lives of the two students killed, and pretty much destroying their deification of Rasmea. Note that Justice4Rasmea uses as its Twitter avatar a cartoon by Carlos Latuff, who won an award at the Iranian Holocaust Cartoon contest.

Carlos Latuff, Holocaust-mocking cartoonist, has blocked me also. I’m not sure when; maybe it was in response to my presentation at the University of Chicago Law School, When Does Anti-Israelism Turn Into Anti-Semitism?, which featured some of his cartoons, like this one:

Slide - Carlos Latuff Octopus

(added) I forgot, Richard Silverstein, the dim-witted [fill in blank] has blocked me. (The archive on Silverstein at IsraellyCool is hysterical.) Must be because I called him out for his ugly, repugnant attack on a pro-Israel black American student Chloe Valdery:

Keep in mind, these are not people who don’t want to hear what I have to say or anything I tweet at them — they can “mute” my account for that. By blocking, they don’t want me to know what they are saying on Twitter. (It won’t work, but that’s another matter.)

I’m sure that there are others, but this is a good list.

Blocked by all the right people! Well done professor!

Repeat after me… #BlockingIsBigotry.

A simple mute is simply “I don’t want to hear what you have to say so am going to create a safe space where you do not exist”, a block is an explicit “I am so intolerant to other views that I am going not only going to create a safe space that lacks you… but even create barriers to you knowing what I am saying.”

I’m not the biggest twitter user (despite having joined in August 2008)… my block list remains at the rather low number of zero… because unlike far too many, I can handle exposure & discussion of opposing views.

Wasn’t it Churchill or some other important person that said one should be judged by the enemies they have? If so….good show!

You mean Gary Britt has not blocked you?
Oh well pot, kettle.

I don’t know if the following article is doing the rounds but it is interesting.

Israel’s Prime Minister in 1965, Levi Eshkol, laid out a plan for peace which was rejected by the Arab States. The Palestinians had not been invented at that stage.
This plan should go viral.

GREAT JOB Professor, keep up the good work!

“There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides on the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty.”

Wow! That’s an impressive collection of all the right enemies.

David Burge as Iowahawk, tweeted, “I wish Twitter would display the list of people I block, and the list of people who block me. I’m proud of both.”
