Obviously, SWP blogger, “lenin” can’t have his readers seeing articles which describe Atzmon as a “liar, racist, buffoon“.
Accordingly, “lenin” has removed Elf’s blog, Jews Sans Frontiers, from his “Lenosphere“: the side bar through which “lenin” advertises the posts of bloggers who are generally “in tune” with SWP thinking. In happier times, Elf’s thoughts were given pride of place in the Lenosphere. Post-Atzmon, however, they are now impure, and have been purged.
Lenin’s Tomb is now happily Judensansfrontiersenrein.
Which is a pity, as there is some class stuff in the Elf’s Grotto these days. Take, for example, the following exchange:
Conflating the imported antisemitic sloganising of Hamas with the real antisemitism of Atzmon, Shamir and Eisen is one of the bogus approaches that has allowed their mischief to flourish in the first place but then zionists want antisemitism which is why the three stooges are such a gift to them.

you don’t think Hamas are anti semitic?

No, it is a nasty foreign import, like junk TV and Frosties.
This is surprising. I would have thought that an organically grown class analysis would be more appealing to Hamas. But apparently it isn’t.
“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” (related by al-Bukhari and Moslem).”The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees.

“But the Jews will not be pleased with thee, neither the Christians, until thou follow their religion; say, The direction of Allah is the true direction. And verily if thou follow their desires, after the knowledge which hath been given thee, thou shalt find no patron or protector against Allah.” (The Cow – verse 120).
Israel, Judaism and Jews challenge Islam and the Moslem people. “May the cowards never sleep.”
These bits aren’t imported, of course. But that is faux antisemitism.
It is totally ersatz.
Therefore, it doesn’t count.

David t – I’d be interested in the context of those quotes.

You’ve surely read the Hamas Covenant?
Mark may I suggest that it is never too late, you can still join humanity.
David T | Homepage | 12.05.06 – 10:28 pm | #
Actually I haven’t read it. You’re confusing me now. Are you saying that that stuff you quoted was simply from Hamas’s covenant? If you are, then the context is the brutalisation of Palestinians by Jews.

Surely you’ve done some basic research into the groups you’re in solidarity with?
David T | Homepage | 12.06.06 – 7:44 am | #
Nope – none that I can think of – my anti-zionism is unconditional

Elf explains that he asked “lenin” to remove him from his blog.
“the reason I don’t want to be on an SWP member’s blog for the time being is obvious enough.”
You’ve gotta admit it. The Elf has a backbone.
Impressive really. The SWP have lost the support of Elf and the JAZers, in order to hang onto the racist jazzman, Atzmon. They’re kind of running out of jews.
I wonder if they’ll resort to inviting the Neturei Karta to their Marxism 2007 conference. Hmm:
