Irony alert: an affiliate of Hamas sues Harry’s Place for implying that he is ‘anti-semitic and hateful’. This is just bad etiquette; what you’re meant to do when dissed online is start your own blog and devote all your time and energy to fighting one almighty blogwar. Suing is just so… old media.
This, from the Hamas covenant, is quite amusing. It helps if you read it whilst putting on a sinister voice:
For a long time, the enemies have been planning, skillfully and with precision, for the achievement of what they have attained. They took into consideration the causes affecting the current of events. They strived to amass great and substantive material wealth which they devoted to the realisation of their dream. With their money, they took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others.
And now, in their greatest-ever victory, these evil-doers even control the blogosphere! We must respond by sending an army of keyboard warriors to leave troll comments on their blogs!*
You can read up on the whole sorry saga here and show some love if you’re so minded. I’d be fibbing if I said it was one of my favourite places on’t interwebs, but this Sawalha character sounds like he’s trying to bully his way out of scrutiny and such behaviour should be deplored.
*Yeah, I might have invented that last part. Still, Hamas is going to need to update this piece of paper one day, and it’s only right that they mention the harm done by Zionist bloggers, what with all those devastating words, pictures & hyperlinks.
