Complaints Surfaced 2 Years Ago; Zionist 'editors' on Indymedia
06 Feb 2006
Modified: 06:51:09 AM
You may not Get to read more than this Summary: There have been complaints on Baltimore Indymedia, Boston Indymedia and Irish Indymedia from and about those who have had their articles about Censorship on Indymedia or the influence of Israel in Indymedia either ERASED or not allowed to even get up on the Sites.


The summary is true of what I and others have experienced in trying to get this issue up for discussion. On the rare occassions it does get up - a number of Indymedia org members almost immediately come up with no real discussion - but rather Come on with a Counter complaint Right away to the effect of:

"How dare you criticize Us since we are doing all this Work of hosting and getting this Indymedia up on the Net for FREE. So since we are putting up what we allow to be up for FREE, don't you dare critize us unless you come to Indymedia meetings and offer help(so we can Identify you and report you to the appropriate agency perhaps?)."

Well if Indymedia is going to Censor people from writing on here - then it would be just as well, that they STOP doing all this FREE Work that misleads people on the Net to believing that the whole thing is really honest and not Israeli and goverment infiltrated.
Israel with its constant deliberate killing of witnesses and journalists who have been Witnesses to Israel's assassination Missling of whole buildings and buses to 'eliminate' 'known terrorists' (actually freedom-fighters against Israeli Occupation of their land) - should be a subject of CONSTANT visibility on Indymedia. Does anyone else ever think it is strange that this is one issue that is almost non-existent on Indymedia? Draw your own conclusions.

It seems like much of this 'hard work'(surveillance of the site to make sure no one criticizes them or Israel? It probably is hard work)has to do with making sure that no one is allowed to suggest that the editorship on Indymedia is infiltrated with Zionists(Take the rest of Palestine - advocaters) - and no one compares the atrocities that the IDF commit to the way that the Jews were treated in the 2nd World War.

Well if Indymedia is going to Censor people from writing on here - then it would be just as well, that they STOP doing all this FREE Work that misleads people on the Net into believing that the whole thing is really honest and not Israeli and goverment infiltrated.

Indymedia Secretly Feeding Zionist Agenda
06 Feb 2006
Well, Dan O'Meara, actually I have Seen a Lot of Postings on Indymedia that deal with Israel and Palestine-- in Fact, it Seems like if anything the Subject has Been Talked to Death. And personally, I have little Patience for people who Imagine that (ahem) "Zionists" are secretly Running the Show. Seems like a vast oversimplification to Me.

Perhaps this (il)Logic is best Indicated by people who Capitalize all the Nouns in their Sentences in a Lazy attempt to gain Authority without Making a Coherent Argument or having Anything new to Say.
Boston IMC has improved greatly as of late.

However, for reasons I cannot reveal, I absolutely believe that Boston IMC and Baltimore IMC have been involved in pro-zionist cyber stalking (at least in the past). Ireland IMC provided the fake Beach Cities IMC (a project of the pro-zionist cyber stalking group known as KOBE) with its software which became the template of the fake Beach Cities IMC website.

A certain individual with strong influence within the Baltimore IMC (formerly Mobtown website) is, without a doubt, an associate of the cyber stalking project (pro-zionist).

Yes, there have been problems with various IMCs. However, it looks to me that Boston IMC purged most of its bad apples recently.

"(pro-zionist)"

Open Communique to ALL Zionists:
They have found us out. It's time to lay low, be careful, don't let them fool you into exposing yourself.
THEY are likey to ask you "Would you like some Matzoh?" Just Say No, it's a trap. Another trick question; "What is the capitol of Israel"
Whenever they ask these questions just respond with "Aren't those cartoons of the prophet mohamed terrible?"
Also, be aware that there is a general meeting of the World Domination Committee on Tuesday, followed by a seminar entitled "International Media Contol, is it all it's cracked up to be?"
See you then,
The Elders of Zion
Um, yeah, except...

There's proof of one Zionist cyber-stalker... but he MUST be the ONLY one, since he's the only one that has been caught red-handed...

As someone who think the Israeli government is one of the most despicable on the planet, and thinks that justifiable analogies can be mad to fascist Germany and perhaps more strongly to apartied South Africa, I must say taht 99% of the posting I see in which teh terrorist practices of the Israeli state are refered to as "Zionist" are devoid of any value. They are designed to be divisive, spout rehtoric with no substance and never add anything but more hate and polarizaation to an already hyper polerized debate.

This is why posts about "Zionism" tend to get hidden as quickly as those about "Islamofacism".

I haven't been around for two years but I've leared to wince whenever I see "Zionist" in a posting. Show me a way to help people get along and work cooperatively wiuth their neighbors, but do tell me another story about how this group of thugs would be better than that group of thugs...
Reality Check

I use the term Zionist because it is literarily and historically correct to do so. Theodor Herzl assembled the first World Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland. His book "Der Judenstaat" was the first major work of Zionism. There is a Zionist Organization of America (ZOA).

Please also consider the names of these groups which we use the word Zionist when talking about:

Association of Reform Zionists of America
Religious Zionist Movement
World Confederation of United Zionists
MERCAZ, USA
Labor Zionist Movement

How can one deliberately refuse to use the same name used by a political organization when discussing it? What kind of 1984 crap is that?
