This individual, whose writings are widely admired in some
pro-Palestinian circles, circulated a message from
Martin Webster on his
"shamireaders" e-list. Yours Truly got a copy of this via a complicated
e-mail chain, and pointed out to the friend who forwarded it that this man
was a Nazi. (I wrongly said he was now a leading light in the BNP -
apparently he never joined anything else after being kicked out of the NF
in the 1980s, I was mixing him up with the late unlamented John Tyndall).
My message got forwarded back to Shamir, who in turn sent it - complete with my work
contact details - to Webster, who was swift to e-mail me to correct my
inaccuracies about his political affiliations and sent me a long account
of how the BNP wasn't racist enough for him. Shamir has refused to
apologise for forwarding my details to a known nazi, and describes
his e-list as "the meeting point of the left and the right against Zionism".
More evidence against Shamir:
- Anti-Zionists against Anti-Semitism
New blog which focuses its attacks on Shamir and Atzmon (q.v.).
"If the Church pays for ‘abusing priests’, maybe Jewry should pay for ‘cheating Jews’?"
An incredible piece which is not only anti-semitic and homophobic but also seeks to
justify sex with minors. Shamir has completely lost it.

Shamir defends the "blood libel" - some time around Feb 2007.
(Yours Truly gets a derogatory mention in this - flattered, I'm sure!)
- There is a review by Shamir of Mel Gibson's 'Passion of
the Christ' in "Heritage and Destiny - The Racial Voice of
White Nationalism". Well I suppose someone else could have posted
it there without his permission ...
- The Al-Awda Unity e-list has, thankfully, voted to remove Shamir
from the list because of his links with fascists and anti-semites.
- Shamir's article "Last of the Sunny Days" is published on the website
of the British National Party. Nedal Zharan, of Manchester PSC, challenged
him on this, saying "My opposition to zionism stems from its racist
nature. Hence, I would be as opposed to any form of racism, including
anti-semitism." Zharan was shocked to receive Shamir's reply: "Surely a
philosemitic racist is not better than an antisemitic one. We should take a
lesson of flowers: they allow every bee and wasp to carry their pollen along."

resignation letter to the board of Deir Yassin Remembered
Shamir has quite a lot to do with this, though Halper describes him
as a "symptom", not the problem.
