Enlightening Commentary On Old Post By Our Commentator; Anonymous Andrew
I would say Devious Diva's site does qualify as a hate site, and it is pointedly hypocritical as well
The "Abravanel" postings are quite suspect. I doubt he is a real person since his posts reflect verbatim false claims ( made by Wiesental Center proved false a couple of year ago) and placed in State Department reports and then removed when the translations were shown to be false.
"Abravanel" does not allow comments on his/her blog. I politely wrote to the published address twice with a half dozen requests for consideration of factual corrections (based on the process the State department used when it discovered the "burning of the Jew" was actually th e "Burning of Judas"), the arapos translations and a number of other points.
I also noted that the serious peer reviewed anthropologists and historians note hat the scapegoat burning ritual actually began in both the Near Eat and in Europe as a Jewish practice associated with the holiday of Purim and indeed that well into the late 19th century that instead of burning the persian "haman" in Eastern Anatolia the purim practice was the burning of the "Amolkite Armenian." (documented in the Princeton University published "Reckless Rites: Purim and the Legacy of Jewish Violence" by noted Israeli hisotrian Elliott Horowitz.)
Devious Diva then published "Abravanel" on the Salonika cemetary. As wrote again asking hy this was not in context. I showed how this issue began immediately after the scandal of massive and long standing Greek Orthodox, Catholic and Moslem cemetaries in Israel being paved over in Israel by developers, especially settlers, and the case of the the Jerusalem Hilton being over a very long established cemetery. Again no response.
He wrote on another blog about the Holocaust in Greece -- blamed the Greeks and praised the Bulgarians. He ignored the fact the Bulgarians occupiers had a higher kill rate of Jews in Greece than did the Germans. No response. My guess is "Abravanel" a blog put up by a pressure group which seeks to deflect criticism of Israel by point out policies of Greece, which it turns out are not 1/10 as draconian as those in Israel.
Also Devious Diva seems to be a regular and flattering commenter of the very xenopobic hate site "discaredlies."
