Cherry picking? There's a bloody tree full! Of course the writers of this report would count all the leaves as well and declare the tree "overwhelmingly fruitless" :razz:

100s of Black Lives Matter protests remarkably violent, study finds

So a more honest interpretation of figures would be

The last year saw American cities hit by hundreds of violent protests in the name of Black Lives Matter, resulting in thousands of arrests and several deaths.

Re: Black Lives Matter protesters "Overwhelmingly Peaceful" and "remarkably nonviolent", study finds

Let's see... They've collected data on 7,305 events, and are using the idea that because half a dozen members of the woman's institute had a peaceful protest supporting BLM in small town Arkansas, that makes the shockingly violent events we saw in several big cities less significant? Utter nonsense....

Wow... That is the worst interpretation of statistics I've seen since John Lott of Crime Prevention Research Centre wrote Comparing the Global Rate of Mass Public Shootings to the U.S.’s Rate and Comparing Their Changes Over Time and concluded that the US had a favourable rate of mass shootings to E...

Re: Freedom of speech

1) speech can be violence. (imagine a child shaking in fear as they are shouted at by an adult; the physical responce in their body is the same as if they had been physically attacked; because they have been attacked). I don't think the reactions of a child are a particularly useful yardstick. I ha...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Apologies for the late reply. Been a busy week. I have a degree of sympathy for your view. A couple of years ago I'd have been inclined to agree. But it's become increasingly evident that it is not the case. When Corbyn became Labour leader he attracted a huge number of new members. Many of these we...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

There are 3 major Jewish newspapers in the UK, one of which happens to be the oldest continually published Jewish newspaper in the world. I was extremely clear about what EHRC said, and it was deeply shaming to Labour and its leader. I have some sympathy for your view that left wing politicians are ...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

Again and again, Jeremy Corbyn has sided with antisemites rather than Jews. At best, this derives from the far left’s obsessive hatred of Zionism, Zionists and Israel. At worst, it suggests a conspiratorial worldview in which mainstream Jewish communities are believed to be a hostile entity, a clas...

Re: Meanwhile another Palestinian Genocide brought to you by Israeli Fascists

It is not anti-Semitic to be strongly opposed to the state of Israel. Which has never been the argument used against Jeremy Corbyn on this site. Your straw man is old, tired, and in desperate need of extra stuffing. It is true to say, however, that whilst being opposed to Israel doesn't make you an...

"[Mr Corbyn] is not a victim. We have been the victim of the anti-Semitism."
- MP Margaret Hodge, parliamentary chair of the Jewish Labour Movement

Do you want to embarrass yourself further defending Mr Corbyn, or are you done now?

Do some Jews hold similar views to Corbyn regarding the Holy Land? Yes. Does this prove anything other than that Jews, along with every other segment of humanity, hold a wide range of views? No. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-44957906.amp "The stain and shame of anti-Sem...

I don't have a great deal of trust in your article's journalistic integrity, to be honest.

Canada has a wide range of news outlets with differing political stances. Al Jazeera English is one of them with an extremely pro Palestinian bias.
