Abstract (Document Summary)

Of course, the authors of these sites take great pains to point out that they're merely "anti-Zionist," or that "it's a minority of the Jews who are responsible." But their writings are straight out of the Dark Ages, with references to Jewish mass murder, well-poisoning ("Jews poison wells in the West Bank with the condoning of the Israeli government," says one blog written by a well-known American anti-Semite), and worse - with even the medieval blood libel charge being revived.

The best way to fight them, I believe, is to discredit them - to show them up for the liars and hypocrites they really are. So, what I've done is gather information - freely available on the Internet - on several of the more prominent Internet anti-Semitic "personalities." I've brought as many examples as space allows, and I have many others. But in the vast majority of cases, these Internet Jew-haters are living hypocritical lifestyles, often guilty of exactly the same thing they accuse "the Zionists" of doing!

Then there's the blogger who, apparently operating from an apartment in French Hill, Jerusalem, supplies his readers with up to the minute news - from Gaza! Of course, all the "news" is about how evil the IDF is, how Gazans suffer, etc. Again, I am not making a political call here; Israeli policy in Gaza is certainly something that should - must - be discussed and analyzed. But not here, not by this guy, who purports to promote "peace in the desert." He's just the wrong man for the job!
