Introduction by Gilad Atzmon: The following is a must read expose by Nahida Izzat. Nahida is one of the strongest, most eloquent and profound writers in our movement. And yet, in spite of being an exiled Palestinian, she is terrorised, intimidated and harassed by no others than the Jewish ‘anti’ Zionists.
I better say it clearly and loudly; we are not going to tolerate AZZ’s (anti Zionist Zionists) repellent behaviour forever.
We are tired of Talmudic commissars. We believe in freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
Did the Age of Enlightenment never occur?
Book Burning Jewish Settlers Style

Recently, my article, this blog and myself have come under attack -not by Zionists, but by two members of the our local Friends of Palestine group (FoP), as well as by a local anti-Zionist Jewish group.
A letter, signed by Messrs G.D and T.B, which was explicitly supported by this anti-Zionist Jewish group was sent to the chair and secretary of the FoP. In this letter they accuse me of writing a “racist [sic]” article “against the Jews [sic]“. Using this false accusations as a pretext, they demanded the “urgent” and “nonnegotiable [sic]” removal of my article and of the link to my blog from FoP’s website. They also demanded the removal of articles by Stewart Littlewood and Gilad Atzmon who both have also been victims of such accusation.
In the monthly meeting of FoP that followed, this local anti-Zionist Jewish group expressed that they were “concerned that credence should not be given to contributors who are holocaust deniers or racist”.
Interestingly, this group who demanded the removal of an article by a Palestinian author and the link to a Palestinian website, simultaneously demanded that links to Jewish-Israeli campaigning groups should be added on FoP Website; “… links to Jewish campaigning groups like ICAHD, New Profile, Combatants for Peace and Jewish for Peace.”
