  • Elder of Ziyon
The People's Voice, which had a virulently anti-semitic article that I mentioned here, is a website where any idiot can publish anything and Google indexes it as "news" in the news.google.com site.

Apparently the site took note of my mentioning them as they wrote a long article criticizing me as a racist, a bigot, a Jewish supremacist and who knows what else. As proof, they used comments made by others on this blog, as well as at least one obvious joke that was making fun of what people like them think - and that they hilariously took seriously.

Their inability to understand simple English is shown by their criticism of something I wrote:
As I scrolled down the page containing the exchange between rj and the people on this site I noticed that the site is filled with statements denoting race, the 'Arabs' this, the 'Arabs' that. Here is a small example:

"This letter implies how difficult it is for Arabs to even have a clue about real world history, as the Arabic literature on secular topics is very sparse. This is a tragedy that is usually overlooked - a billion people who only can read one language are imprisoned by the non-existence of any ideas that are not politically-correct for the Arab world."

What if they had said:

"This letter implies how difficult it is for some Jewish people to even have a clue about real world history, as the Jewish literature on secular topics is very sparse. This is a tragedy that is usually overlooked - a billion people who only can read one language are imprisoned by the non-existence of any ideas that are not politically-correct for the Jewish world."


Well, first of all the correct analogy to "Arabic" would be "Hebrew." So even though word substitution is almost always a ridiculous argument, let's go for it:
"This letter implies how difficult it is for some Jews to even have a clue about real world history, as the Hebrew literature on secular topics is very sparse. This is a tragedy that is usually overlooked - fifteen million people who only can read one language are imprisoned by the non-existence of any ideas that are not politically-correct for the Jewish world."

As can be seen, if a proper word substitution is placed in this paragraph, it becomes nonsensical - firstly because most Jews read and write languages other than Hebrew, and secondly because there are plenty of secular Hebrew books. So my original paragraph makes a lot of sense and is not bigoted in the slightest.

At any rate, buried within this rant was the cry that I was trying to censor them, even though I explained twice that asking Google News not to index them as a legitimate "news" site is not the same thing as trying to stop their website from publishing. They are so clueless that they mention that my "hate site" blog is indexed by Google, not having a clue that there is a difference between Google, a web site spider tool, and Google News, where human beings choose what is considered a news source.

So The People's Voice is, as usual, playing a victim card.

Google News actually emailed them and told them that they were removing the hate article from their index, and warned them that if they continue to publish similar articles then they would be delisted from Google News.

A tiny step against pure hatred.
