You're right. I thought of that one too.

I think it's been mentioned in these threads already, but that's the episode that is the subject of Jon Thompson's book No Debate.

The arbiter of pro-Israel political correctness in the U.S. is pissed (for a change):

 

Quote:

Harvard University professor Alan Dershowitz alleged Friday that Media Matters has "crossed the line into anti-semitism" by tolerating an employee who uses charged language to criticize supporters of Israel

 

. . . . 

 

The professor directed his complaints at one staffer in particular, M.J. Rosenberg, for downplaying the Iranian nuclear threat and repeatedly employing the term "Israel firster" -- an epithet that implies somebody's loyalties are to Israel before America. 

"When you accuse Jews of dual loyalty, you invoke a canard that goes back hundreds of years and falls into the category of anti-semitism," Dershowitz said. "To the extent that Media Matters hired him to do that and is tolerating him, they have crossed the line into anti-semitism." 

Dershowitz called on Media Matters to fire Rosenberg, but also called on the White House to disassociate itself from Media Matters -- warning that their cozy relationship would cause problems in the 2012 reelection campaign. 

"The president should do to Media Matters what he did to Jeremiah Wright -- totally disassociate, rebuke and say 'I stand with Israel,'" he said. 

 

. . . .

 

Dershowitz, though, argued that Israel's and America's interests are aligned, and said Rosenberg was effectively accusing people like him of "treason." 

"It's the oldest of charges ... accusing Jews of dual loyalty, and it can't be tolerated, whether it comes from the left or the right," he said. "The tent is not big enough to include people who have engaged in bigotry against the Jewish people."

Dershowitz is, of course, one of the loudest voices trying to shut down the "One-State" conference at Harvard this weekend.

Cotler Rejects 'Israeli Apartheid' in South Africa

http://www.cjnews.com/node/89465

"As activists on campuses around the world demonize Israel as an 'apartheid state', Liberal MP Irwin Cotler made the case for Israel as a bastion of human rights in the very place apartheid was practised - South Africa.."

Canadian tax dollars hard at work - spreading Zionist propaganda far and wide.

Radio talk show host Michael Harris fired by Bell Media

Quote:
His firing from CFRA takes place after a concerted attack from the Council for Israel and Jewish Advocacy (CIJA), following a detailed article he wrote in iPolitics highlighting Israeli human rights violations and lambasting the Harper government's lack of balance on Middle East issues.

Was Harris' most recent firing a result of pressure from CIJA? We will probably never know but when a child is beaten in the schoolyard it is only normal to suspect the school bully.

CIJA's been busy. Here's another of their little projects:

CIJA Setting Up A Community Security Network

http://www.cjnews.com/canada/cija-setting-community-security-force

"..The initiative is called the 'Community Security Network' and is touted as being similar to a Neighbourhood Watch program, only on a national scale. Doron Horowitz, CIJA's Director of National Security Infrastructure and head of the new initiative, told the CJN that the project aims to have the Canadian Jewish community take more responsibility for its own security and project the image that it's looking out for itself.

'We will be less reliant on external security resources and will...complement law enforcement,' he said. This is the Jewish community taking 'an active role in its own security on a civilian level.' Horowitz will begin training 25 volunteers in Toronto starting next month before eventually recruiting members in Ottawa, Hamilton, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary and Vancouver, although not necessarily in that order.

Horowitz, a security specialist and a decorated ex-Israel Defence Forces officer, with specialized training in counter-terrorism - said he hopes to bring in local police to speak to the volunteers to help them understand their role and limitations..."

WTF? I'm sure JDL-Canada and their Kahanist, Kachist, fearless leader Meir is already drawing up a list of likely prospects...
