the “Billionaire bastard” is a reference to Usamov, whose lawyers demanded that Indymedia uk take down an article about Usamov by ,a href=”http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/” mce_href=”http://www.craigmurray.org.uk/”Craig Murray – claims of anti-semitism have been one of the most difficult things to deal with as a collective. Some people have been calling for a network meeting for months so that the issues raised by it can be discussed. The other difficult issue that hasn’t been resolved is whether Indymedia uk should ban all 9/11 7/7 and general ‘conspiracy theory’ stuff.ftp

Quoting startx :

anti-semitism, as i stated several times before on this list, has
nothing to do with “hating all Jews because they are Jewish”. as many
others stated before (i.e. yoss), please read a bit about the meaning of
anti-semitism.

Yes, if it isn’t judeaphobia, then it is definitely a device to stifle criticism
of Israel(1), (and now it seems critics of anti-zionist jews)

The article exists in numerous places on the web, and I do not think that we should bow to Tony Greenstein’s demand for censorship.

indymedia does not censor, it does not have the ability

Mr. Greenstein is asking for it to be expunged from the site. That is the same
thing that schillings asked for the Billionaire Bastard. No difference
whatsoever.

Gilad Atzmon, like Tony Greenstein, is part of the British left, and
ultimately we should exercise the greatest caustion when choosing to
censor those with progressive views.

if you consider the idea that “the jews rule the world” as very progressive, im a bit surprised here.

again, i propose that this article is hidden, indymedia is NOT a platform for people like Gilad Atzmon.

What, pray, are “people like Gilad Atzmon”? I do know this, he is often quoted
out of context. In this case I invite you to examine the actual text, and tell
me which part of his argument is wrong.(2) Why is he not allowed to express his
view in your eyes?

And once again the need for a network meeting to sort out these political issues
manifests itself.
