I cannot imagine the horror of waking up to find your shoe stolen. No sign of forced entry. Naturally your first thought of such a violation, which is worse than the theft of a shoe, goes to the people to blame. Jews. Except, of course you cannot say that. Say Zionists. Even without proof, you may get away with that:
The battle is joined at last for Asghar Bukhari in the struggle against an international conspiracy of Zionists. Despite the lack of proof. It has cost him a shoe. You may be forgiven for not knowing about this person. Despite the Zionist reference hinting at someone who runs off at the mouth with hatred, you may want to empathise at someone who claims to be being harassed. Free speech means you can say nonsensical things, and not deserve to have your shoe stolen from you as you sleep. I totally agree.
That though is where my sympathy ends, and hopefully I can show you a few more examples of the hatred Asghar Bukhari expresses on Twitter.
Shoe shinning – that and other rather choice words are his mo on Twitter to insult people. Notice in 2013 people were beginning to wonder – is this carrying on about creating a media profile? Skip forward to this year see if this is still how he responds to people.
For Bukhari, evil bitch, zio-bitch, zio nazi bitch – trademark insults. Best response is to turn the other cheek. The attempt here is to make political and military conflicts all about religion. Classic fundamentalist point of view. One as head of MPACuk he is prepared to advocate. Speaking of that organisation:
The Muslim Public Affairs Committee have used their website to reproduce material taken from the sites of both David Irving and The Heretical Press (a far right publisher based in Hull)… Often when Islamist organisations use far right sources it reveals a deeper antisemitism. The Muslim Public Affairs Committee’s reproduction of material from the far right sits on their website alongside open support for Holocaust denier David Irving, accusations of Zionist media and political control, lists of Jewish donors to New Labour and an investigation into whether the Talmud is “the most Powerful and Racist book in the world”. In one example which neatly illustrates the growing commonalities between political extremes, the Islamist Muslim Public Affairs Committee published an article by Professor Kevin MacDonald – who appeared as a witness for David Irving in his failed libel action against Professor Deborah Lipstadt – on the subject which is currently of so much interest to the far left and the anti-war movement: the “International Jewish Origins of Neoconservatism”.
A much longer conversation follows, regarding how Bukhari operates in the real world and social media to intimidate others.
So #mossadstolemyshoe was set up – to tackle his antisemitism, expose it to a larger audience. To highlight the hatred this self claimed “defender of my people” uses.
How has he responded to all the attention? Like there is no such thing as bad publicity.
