Thanks to Arutz Sheva, Jerusalem Property Stays in Jewish Hands

( In the wake of a report last week by Arutz Sheva-Israel National News, Jerusalem real estate purchased in a Zionist reclamation project over 30 years ago will remain in Jewish hands.

Aryeh King, chairman of the National Lands Fund, told Arutz Sheva Radio about an American Jewish businessman who lost his properties as a result of the global economic meltdown. As a result, among other necessary steps, he was forced to sell off Jerusalem property he purchased as part of a Zionist venture 30 years ago, when he lived in Iran. Thus far, King reported, the businessman sold one dunam of his four-dunam property in the capital to an Arab purchaser, who also obtained the right of first refusal for the remaining dunams should a Jewish buyer not be found.

This week King said that, due to the exposure the story received through Arutz Sheva, dozens of Jewish purchasers have come forward. They include Israelis and Diaspora Jews, some of whom offered to buy the land themselves and others who wanted to establish purchasing collectives.
Among those who offered to purchase the Jerusalem real estate, King said, was former Knesset Member Shmuel Flatto-Sharon. The former MK and businessman expressed an interest in the property after reading about the case on the Arutz Sheva website.

According to King, due to the many offers the current landowner received, it was decided to divide the remaining dunams of property among three separate buyers, rather than selling to one individual. One of the buyers is a Jerusalem businessman, a second is a resident of the south of the country and a third lives abroad.

The dunam that has already been sold, to a resident of the Beit Safafa neighborhood of Jerusalem, cannot be retrieved unless the buyer is willing to sell the land back. That purchase was already completed and carried out before the American businessman's story was publicized.

YouTube's Anti-Semite of the Week: Steve Pallister, aka "The Rabbit"

Ah...Bunny-Boy Steve Pallister, aka the ex-accounts RabbitVoz, RabbitNexus, SheepleSleeple, and NextRabbit, Steve-O...and I use that name because he belongs on "Jackass" our YouTube Aussie internet bully with a persecution complex. Seems like his account Nextrabbit, like all the previous ones, came under some fire from YouTube Administration, a couple of his vids got deleted, and then the account was suspended. In retaliation, Pallister has just created five more accounts, in direct violation of YouTube TOS.

Pallister's a laughable little man, staring at the camera with all the visual presence of a stick of wood. Our little down-under Jew hater has been hard at working lately denying the Holocaust; delegitimizing the state of Israel by spouting revisionist history; threatening and blocking anyone and anything that even hinted at disagreeing with his viewpoints; and generally acting like like a complete immature twit.

Two days before the NextRabbit channel was suspended, Pallister made the absurd claim that in 1948, Israeli troops outnumbered the five attacking Arab armies, and that Israel had far superior weaponry.

So I challenged Steve-O on his figures on his channel "RabbitStill":

"...Israel had 90,000 troops in 1947" Do you want to stick with that statement? (note: according to historical records, there were less than 30,000 by 1948.) Of course, you're going to claim that all historical references except yours are "Zionist controlled", right?...Afraid our postings would expose you for the deluded, lying fool you are? Afraid of a little history? I can provide you with plenty of documentation from non-Israeli sources, like the AHA (American Historical Society) or the Red Cross International Tracing Service at Bad Arolsen, Germany. Those two references should shine some light on your fantasy ravings about the history of Israel and of the Holocaust...."

Well, here's what Steve-O posted in reply...I guess my "deluded lying fool" jab got to him a bit:

"RavDov your hate speech and thug like criminal hypocrite natures are now on display for all to see, and by your own hand. I have nothing to say to you, I answered p058720235, take my answer or leave it, you are nothing to me."

(so I guess disagreeing with Steve-O constitutes hate speech? Notice that he didn't provide one shred of documentation for his claims.)

"As for your hilarious accusation of "silencing" anybody, that is rich coming from one who runs sites designed to silence people like me, who do not do hate speech...I have never silenced an honest attempt at discussion yet. I do block filth...but only after it is made."

(Pallister makes it a practice of talking down to, degrading, and name-calling anyone who disagrees with him, then blocking them from replying back. He blocked me shortly after this exchange.)

"You are the original coward and censor and you are failing. You are a ringleader of an internet hate group whose sole purpose is to spread hate and fear in anybody who criticises Israel for its crimes. You are responsible directly for hate speech, stalking, slander and privacy invasion, death threats and blackmail. I accuse you openly and publicly and dare you to allow me to prove it in court."

(Yeah, right Steve-O. If I read Australia''s hate speech laws correctly, you'll be in court soon enough, just like your buddy Brendon O'Connell.)

"Now we have seen the criminal RavDov hate gang slimy excuse for a is the filthy bile poured forth by your kind....a good example of the hate speech spread by your kind..."

(Blah, blah, blah...nothing new from Pallister. In this particular video rant, there's the typical anti-Semitic diatribe, complete with statements like "your kind", "shit-stains", and "criminals". )

YouTube is cracking down slowly but surely on these hate mongers, and there's no doubt that people like Pallister are feeling the pressure. But the biggest blow to his ENORMOUS ego is the rank and file YouTuber that visits his channel and sees what a raving loon he is - and leaves a comment to that effect.

Pallister is a serial bully in the classic sense. Some characteristics of the serial bully include:

...a convincing, practiced liar often described as smooth, slippery, slimy, ingratiating, fawning, toadying, obsequious, sycophantic
...relies on mimicry, repetition and regurgitation to convince others that he or she is both a "normal" human being
...emotionally retarded with an arrested level of emotional development
...holds deep prejudices self-opinionated and displays arrogance, audacity, a superior sense of entitlement and sense of invulnerability and untouchability
...flits from topic to topic so that you come away feeling you've never had a proper conversation
...refuses to be specific and never gives a straight answer
...poisons peoples' minds by manipulating their perceptions constantly imposing on others a false reality made up of distortion and fabrication
...sometimes displays a seemingly limitless demonic energy especially when engaged in attention-seeking activities or evasion of accountability quick to discredit and neutralise anyone who can talk knowledgeably about antisocial or sociopathic behaviors highly manipulative, especially of people's perceptions and emotions
...may pursue a vindictive vendetta against anyone who dares to held them accountable, perhaps using others' resources and contemptuous of the damage caused to other people and organisations in pursuance of the vendetta also quick to belittle, undermine, denigrate and discredit anyone who calls, attempts to call, or might call the bully to account

And last but not least:

...has a compulsive need to control. For example: He or she will launch an immediate personal attack attempting to restrict what you are permitted to say if you start talking knowledgeably about psychopathic personality or antisocial personality disorder in their presence - but aggressively maintains the right to talk (usually unknowledgeably) about anything they choose. Serial bullies despise anyone who enables others to see through their deception and their mask of sanity.
