    Look who has blocked me on Twitter

    Look who has blocked me on Twitter

    Rogues gallery.

    So … I just noticed that Stanley Cohen, the pro-Hamas tax convict who, after release from prison, was held out as representing some anti-Israel teenager even though his law license was suspended, has blocked me on Twitter.

    I think this tweet of mine is what did it:

    Here are some others. It’s not a complete list, for sure. This is just from memory.

    Steven Salaita, the hate-tweeting almost U. Illinois – Urbana Champaign professor, now resident in Beirut:

    Code Pink, which recently hired Ithaca anti-Israel activist Ariel Gold; one of her first acts as a Code Pinker was to disrupt prayers at the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

    Robert Mackey, formerly with the NY Times, now with The Intercept. He blocked me when I questioned some of his questionable sources during the Gaza war.

    Justice4Rasmea, which is really, really upset with me for documenting Rasmea Odeh’s supermarket bombing complicity and documenting the lives of the two students killed, and pretty much destroying their deification of Rasmea. Note that Justice4Rasmea uses as its Twitter avatar a cartoon by Carlos Latuff, who won an award at the Iranian Holocaust Cartoon contest.

    Carlos Latuff, Holocaust-mocking cartoonist, has blocked me also. I’m not sure when; maybe it was in response to my presentation at the University of Chicago Law School, When Does Anti-Israelism Turn Into Anti-Semitism?, which featured some of his cartoons, like this one:

    Slide - Carlos Latuff Octopus

    (added) I forgot, Richard Silverstein, the dim-witted [fill in blank] has blocked me. (The archive on Silverstein at IsraellyCool is hysterical.) Must be because I called him out for his ugly, repugnant attack on a pro-Israel black American student Chloe Valdery:

    Keep in mind, these are not people who don’t want to hear what I have to say or anything I tweet at them — they can “mute” my account for that. By blocking, they don’t want me to know what they are saying on Twitter. (It won’t work, but that’s another matter.)

    I’m sure that there are others, but this is a good list.

    GREAT JOB Professor, keep up the good work!

    “There is no one like the God of Jeshurun, who rides on the heavens to help you and on the clouds in his majesty.”

    Wow! That’s an impressive collection of all the right enemies.

    David Burge as Iowahawk, tweeted, “I wish Twitter would display the list of people I block, and the list of people who block me. I’m proud of both.”
