Alastair Sloan has written for The Guardian, The Independent, The Evening Standard and the Huffington Post. But to see how he really thinks, you need to check out his latest article at Middle East Monitor:

[W]e are ignoring the bigger problem. The crux of bringing the Israeli hawks to heel isn't so much about corporate investments – it's about political money, dripping from the campaign coffers of Western politicians bribed and briefed by Jerusalem cronies.

The funding is mysterious, ambiguous and seemingly unimpeachable, protected by anti-Semitism laws which forbid honest discussion of it, or by hasbara attack dogs who discredit any journalist or academic who speaks out.

But imagine the tabloid outcry if hundreds of millions in "Muslim" donations began pouring in to Western politics, Muslims with strong interests in the domestic or foreign policies of Pakistan, Saudi Arabia or Iran.

You don't have to imagine – last month Qatar, the United Arab Emirates (and Norway) were caught funding influential foreign policy think tanks in Washington. And there was an outcry.

But many feel uncomfortable taking on the Israeli lobby – because it's scary. It comes with great risk – people have lost their jobs, careers and reputations. Nobody likes to be labelled an anti-Semite, which is their preferred mode of attack.
I'm unaware of any antisemitism laws that are used to keep donations to politicians secret when they come from Jews. But let's set aside Sloan's tenuous grasp of the truth for now.

Sloan is saying that there is a mysterious powerful Jewish cabal that secretly controls Western governments and media and forces them to do the nefarious will of the Zionists against their own best interests. He is so scared of it himself that he cannot bring himself to say the word "Jewish," but his audience knows very well what he means. "Jerusalem cronies," wink-wink.

But if I point that out, by using his own words, he says I'm a "hasbara attack dog" who is trying to silence him!

No, Mr. Sloan, I am not trying to silence you. On the contrary. I'm very happy that Middle East Monitor exists and publishes your hateful screeds. Because it provides a venue for Jew-haters like you to reveal your true feelings, feelings that you wouldn't dream of writing about in more mainstream media.

Thanks to fringe media like these, we now know that your carefully constructed anti-Israel arguments you publish in those other venues are really your trying to put a fig leaf on your hate. Your toxic feelings aren't a result of anything Israel does; your hate for Israel is a result of your bias against Jews that you have revealed so neatly here, for everyone to see.

No, Alastair, keep spewing your hate. Keep writing for MEMO, so we can point your own words out to your editors the next time you write for The Independent or HuffPo. They need to have full information about the writers they promote, don't you agree?

Free speech is a wonderful thing. That;'s why you chose to write this, and that's why I choose to reveal it to the people who don't read anti-Israel propaganda sites.

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money. For over 14 years and 30,000 articles I have been providing accurate, original news that would have remained unnoticed. I've written hundreds of scoops and sometimes my reporting ends up making a real difference. I appreciate any donations you can give to keep this blog going.
