Why are the BBC, the Guardian and the press repeatedly taken in by this bogus ‘Researcher’ & his attacks on Corbyn?
It is quite remarkable how the media, including the ‘liberal’ Guardian, are repeatedly deceived by David Collier’s ‘research’. Collier claims in his latest Report Anti-Semitism Inside Palestine Live, an obscure Palestine Facebook group with no official status, that ‘This research is fully independent. I am not affiliated with any political group or community organisation. I believe this independence is important and adds to the integrity of the work.’
A cursory examination of this statement would show that it is a preposterous lie. Collier is a dedicated Zionist activist and his ‘research’ is politically driven by his far-Right Zionist views and fascist associations. Indeed it would not be an exaggeration to say that Collier himself is a died-in-the-wool racist with fascist tendencies.
|Zionist 'charity' the Campaign Against anti-Semitism paints Scottish PSC as antisemitic|
|The BBC (& Labour's witchhunters) take Collier's 'research' at face value|
|The CAA calls PSC 'bigots for Palestine' in its normally politically neutral mode of operation|
Perhaps the word ‘deceived’ is too strong. After all the BBC and The Guardian are willing dupes. Even the most cursory examination of Collier would demonstrate that he is anything but independent.
His latest report isn’t the first such ‘research’ by Collier. He was responsible for producing similar reports on Scottish PSC and Palestine Solidarity Campaign, both of which were also concerned with social media/Facebook groups. He is backed up in his work by the far-Right Zionist ‘charity’ Campaign Against Anti-Semitism which publicises Collier’s work under such neutral and objective titles as Bigots 4 Palestine. Collier openly admits that his work is ‘commissioned and published by Jewish Human Rights Watch’.
For those who don’t know JHRW is another far-Right Zionist group dedicated to opposing Palestinian human rights. It is led by Emmanuel Weiss and solicitor Robert Festenstein. In its own words ‘Jewish Human Rights Watch (JHRW) was established in February 2015 to fight the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions Movement (BDS’. In other words it has nothing to do with human rights, either Jewish or Palestinian.
|Racist cartoon accompanying CAA pamphlet on 'Muslim anti-semitism'|
We have campaigned to have the CAA deregistered by the Charity Commission as it is an openly political Zionist group. However the Charity Commission under its Islamaphobic far-Right Chairman William Shawcross has refused to act. Shawcross, an ex-Director of the cold war Henry Jackson Society was reported in the Guardian as having said in 2012 that ‘“Europe and Islam is one of the greatest, most terrifying problems of our future”. The CAA, in response to a petition calling on the Charity Commission to act tried to intimidate Change.org into taking the petition down (they failed!).
|Collier's political agenda is quite clear|
The only thing that Collier has proved in his copious reports is that people who are anti-Semitic are a problem on Palestine social media and Facebook groups and that the under resourced PSC who run one of these groups should have been more vigilant. The attempt of Collier and others to say that Palestine Solidarity Campaign and its Scottish equivalent are therefore anti-Semitic ‘bigots’ cannot be sustained. Both groups are not only explicitly opposed to anti-Semitism but in practice support anti-fascist and anti-racist activities, as do their local groups. Both groups are of course established to oppose the very real racism that Palestinians experience. That is the real reason for Collier’s ‘research and it is why the word ‘solidarity’ is found in their name.
Conspiracy theorists and advocates of Holocaust denial are a wider problem on the Internet and they are not confined to Palestine related groups. Many people, lacking any explanation for imperialism and its wars and devastation of the Middle East and Africa, instead of looking to simple explanations about international class relations, look to conspiracy theories or what they perceive as Jewish lobbies. Part of the reason for this is that Zionist lobby groups like AIPAC or the Board of Deputies of British Jews openly proclaim that their support for Israel is in the name of all Jews. It is no surprise therefore that some people take them at their word.
|Naturally John Mann MP seeks a share of the limelight|
It is also unfortunate that because Israel and the Zionist movement use the Holocaust as a propaganda weapon against the Palestinians, some people react by denying the Holocaust. See for example Netanyahu blames Jerusalem mufti for Holocaust, is accused of ‘absolving Hitler’
This bizarre ‘logic’ epitomised by former Iranian President Ahmedinajad, holds that since the Holocaust legitimises the Israeli state, denying the Holocaust undermines Israel. Unfortunately, since the Holocaust is an established fact, such people end up achieving the precise opposite. Such people would do better to understand the political opportunism of a movement which, during the Holocaust, opposed the rescue of Jewish refugees to any place but Palestine. A movement which, as Ken Livingstone noted, was itself backed by the Nazis before the Holocaust. Even Zionist historian David Cesarani, in his book The Final Solution (p.96) accepted that ‘The efforts of the Gestapo are oriented to promoting Zionism as much as possible and lending support to its efforts to further emigration.” (my emphasis)
Collier’s latest report on an obscure Facebook group, Palestine Live was intended to paint prominent members such as Jeremy Corbyn and Baroness Tonge as anti-Semites even though they had nothing to do with and weren’t even aware of its anti-Semitic postings. If you are on Facebook you are added automatically to numerous groups without your knowledge. Even if you contribute to them there is no reason why you would automatically know if Holocaust denial material had been posted to them.
David Collier – Member of the Fascist Herut UK group
|The letter to the New York Times signed by Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt and many other Jewish personalities|
What is though relevant is that Collier, far from being a disinterested academic researcher, is a member of Herut UK. Herut was founded by Vladimir Jabotinsky, a Russian Zionist who founded Revisionist Zionism. As Ha’aretz noted, David Ben Gurion, Israel’s first Prime Minister ‘repeatedly compared Jabotinsky to Hitler in print and in speeches, including one where he called him "Vladimir Hitler.’ In a famous letter on the occasion of the visit there by the leader of Herut, Menachem Begin (who in 1977 became Prime Minister of Israel), Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt and 26 other prominent Jewish dignitaries wrote that:
Among the most disturbing political phenomena of our times is the emergence in the newly created state of Israel of the “Freedom Party” (Tnuat Haherut), a political party closely akin in its organization, methods, political philosophy and social appeal to the Nazi and Fascist parties.
At the relaunch of Herut-UK in February of this year, it was reported that ‘pro-Israel activist David Collier spoke about the legacy of Zionist founding father, Vladimir Jabotinsky.’ Note how the Jewish News described Collier as a ‘pro-Israel activist’. There is no pretence that he is a neutral researcher who just happened to stumble on anti-Semitism whilst browsing the Internet.
A former Israeli businessman Collier is deeply racist. He believes that Palestinian refugees are an ‘artificial entity’. Collier criticised Naomi Wimborne-Iddrissi, a Jewish woman as “blind and stupid” and attacked “her life choices” because she had “married a Muslim, and has a child’. In Israel sexual relations (miscegenation) between Jews and non-Jews is a social taboo, race-mixing.
|Lehava thugs demonstrating outside the wedding reception of an Arab and a Jewish woman chanting 'Death to the Arabs.|
In Israel the government-funded fascist group Lehava organises packs of young thugs to go round beating up Arab men suspected of wanting to date Jewish women (as is normal with fascist groups there is no objection to Jewish men having sexual relations with Arab women – this was also true in Nazi Germany). See In Jerusalem, a Far-right Jewish Gang Frequently Attacks Arabs - and the Police Do Almost Nothing. In Israel it is impossible for Jews and non-Jews to marry. The leader of this Jewish Nazi group, Benjamin Gopstein, who has also called for the burning of churches and mosques in Israel, was recently invited to talk about the harassment of Jewish women by Arab men by the Knessets Committee on Distributive Justice.
Collier relies on the good old McCarthyist technique of guilt-by-association. Corbyn is guilty of ‘anti-Semitism’ because of things other people have posted and the misnamed Campaign Against Anti-Semitism has even filed a complaint against Corbyn for anti-Semitism!
|Collier's friend Debra Cohen refers to the victims of genocide in Bosnia as 'Muzli rats' - a Hitler like term - 'by their friends shall ye know them'|
Collier’s hypocrisy is demonstrated by Jackie Walker who revealed that Collier was added to the Facebook Group International Community by Debra Cohen on 4th August 2016. A friend of Collier, Cohen is a vile racist and Islamaphobe, who called Ratko Mladic and Radovan Karadzic, who were found guilty of war crimes at the Hague, including setting up concentration camps and perpetrating the massacre at Srebenica, ‘innocent men’. In Srebenica more than 8,000 Bosnian Muslims were murdered. Cohen believes that ‘we made mistake not to support this 2 guys.... Now we have to deal with li rats on our own.’ Just as Hitler described Jews as vermin Cohen describes Muslims as ‘rats’.
Delivering the verdict last November, Judge Alphons Orie said Mladić’s crimes “rank among the most heinous known to humankind and include genocide and extermination” The denial that the genocide of Muslims in former Yugoslavia took place was famously made by the magazine Living Marxism (now Spiked) when it accused ITN of doctoring photographs of the concentration camp. ITN won £375,000 in libel damages.
It is ironic but no surprise that Collier keeps company with genocide denier Debra Cohen but since Collier devotes his life to denying that the Palestinians were ethnically cleansed. None of this has been revealed by the BBC or Guardian who report in blissful ignorance.
In the introduction to his Report Collier goes out of his way to pretend that his ‘research’ is not motivated by the conflict with the Palestinians or Zionism. He asserts that his work ‘sets the bar for antisemitism very high by completely discounting Israel based antisemitism.’ (note the assumption that ‘Israel based’ solidarity work is anti-Semitic. This too is a lie. Even Collier doesn’t suggest that anything I have written is anti-Semitic. However that doesn’t prevent him from including me in his Report for no other reason than that I criticise his gang of Zionist fascist friends.
Last year I wrote an extensively researched article We Name the Gang of (31) Zionists Whose Purpose is to Disrupt Palestinian Events in London. One of these Zionists, Jason Silver later committed suicide. Almost immediately Silver’s former friends attempted to blame my article for his death despite there being no proof of any connection.
|Paul Besser with gaoled Britain First leader Jayda Fransen|
The 31 Zionist fascists consist of individuals such as Paul Besser, Intelligence Officer for neo-Nazi Britain First, who go around trying to disrupt Palestinian meetings and activities. Britain First are famous for receiving Trump’s endorsement. Their leaders, Paul Golding and Jayda Fransen have just been sentenced to 18 and 36 months imprisonment for racial harassment and Thomas Mair, the killer of Jo Cox MP repeatedly shouted ‘Britain First’ before murdering her.
Collier writes about a Free Speech on Israel meeting at the House of Commons last year:
‘The clearest example of legitimising antisemitism took place on 5th December 2015, (sic!) at an event hosted by Tommy Sheppard MP. The group holding the event was ‘Free Speech on Israel’ (FSOI), a group of Jewish Palestine Live members, who created FSOI to deflect accusations of antisemitism.’
Note how Collier adopts the conspiracy method of the anti-Semites. FSOI has nothing to do with Palestine Live nor does my blog article. The meeting at the House of Commons was a meeting of FSOI. Collier’s deliberately mixes them all together in one heady anti-Semitic brew.
Collier doesn’t provide an iota of proof to back up his assertion of a link between FSOI and Palestine Live. All the speakers at the meeting, who were Jewish, had a lot to say about Israel and Zionism but nothing they said was remotely anti-Semitic nor does he make any such claim.
Nonetheless Collier has no hesitation in branding the meeting ‘anti-Semitic’. So much for setting the bar very high! In fact there is no bar.
|Gemma Sheridan (left) and Michael English both wearing tee shirts with Jewish Nazi Kach symbol|
Collier writes that: ‘Four days after the event, Tony Greenstein ran a vicious attack piece, naming Jewish activists who attend demonstrations.’ What has this to do with the alleged purpose of his ‘research’, unmasking anti-Semitism? It is of course a lie. I didn’t criticise Jewish activists who ‘attended demonstrations’ but those who deliberately tried to disrupt meetings with the use of violence and intimidation. I named people such as Roberta Moore of the Jewish Defence League (banned in the United States as a terrorist organisation) who has disrupted Palestinian events and assaulting attendees. Her boyfriend Robert de Jonge was convicted of assault. Collier alleged that my article was:
‘full of false information... It gave names and addresses of some activist’s places of work. ... Complaints were lodged by unknown individuals to activists’ professional associations where applicable. Some people received threats. Several of those named filed police reports. One of those named activists, committed suicide within weeks of the attack post, and while he was under investigation from his professional body.
This is all almost certainly a result of allowing the antisemitism inside Palestine Live, the key to the doors of Westminster. Perhaps thanks are due to Tommy Sheppard MP for hosting the event?’
Here you can see the dishonest method of Collier. By the most tenuous of routes he ends up blaming not only me, but even Tommy Sheppard MP, ‘for hosting the event’ and thereby giving ‘the key to the doors of Westminster’ to Palestine Live. Leaving aside that it was FSOI not Palestine Live that held the meeting, this is guilt by association at 2 stage removed yet The Guardian is happy to go along with all this. Collier’s purpose is quite clear. It is to have Palestinian meetings banned from the parliamentary estate.
Almost everything Collier writes is a lie. No addresses were given of any of the 31 individuals. The article didn’t mention anyone’s place of work and the allegation that it had anything to do with the suicide of Silver is another lie, again unsupported by anything so quaint as evidence. Only in a footnote does Collier concede that ‘Additionally, there is no way of knowing, how much of a contributing factor the article was.’ In fact there is no evidence at all.
Collier quotes the Scottish Sunday Times of 30th July that ‘'you would need to work hard at it’ to be included in the research.’ On the contrary it takes no effort at all if you are an anti-Zionist. Since Collier can’t quote one single thing I said that is anti-Semitic why is my name there? This quote says more about the standards of the Sunday Times under Murdoch than anything else

Al Quds Day June 2017.
|Darren Osborne, Collier and Jason Silver (l to r)|
On Sunday 18 June 2017 these three men planned to disrupt the legitimate Al Quds Day March.
Darren Osborne (on left) arrived too late to attack the march with his truck and went on to murder at Finsbury Park Mosque.
Jason Silver (on right) who recorded himself shouting foul racist remarks all day went on to continue to harass the Metropolitan Police and hanged himself when the police rejected his contrived and false allegations.
David Collier (centre) spent the day marching with extremists such as Thor Halland, just back from a prison spell in Thailand, Michael English who has family links to the Manchester Holland crime gang and who has spent considerable periods in Strangeways and other prisons. Collier, who likes to pretend he is working “undercover” was welcomed at the main Zionist counter-demo at Grosvenor Square by another jailbird, Simon Cobbs (HMP Exeter with bars) who “nudge,nudge, wink,wink” told “Dave 007” Collier he understood that he did not want to be filmed.

The Oddest Antisemites: Blog 2 – EXCLUSIVE – Gnasherjew identity revealed! It’s Collier
Much to the joy of pro Palestine activists, Gnasherjew dropped an almighty clanger which firmly outed David Collier as one of the notorious harassers and defamers in the Gnasher Twitter account. His expertise is trying to attach any perceived instances of antisemitism to Jeremy Corbyn and Palestine solidarity groups. This has always been the accounts MO as I persistenly claimed for the last year. Forcing them to put Ex Labour in their Twitter bio (P.S. they were never Labour). Collier is right-wing through and through. You also might remember him for diving under the security radar at Labour’s Conference last year in order to write yet another flawed exposé on the PSC stand. He was ejected. He has a track-record of being ejected or refused admission for example to the Jewish Voice for Labour meeting at Labour Party conference. He also has a track record of gross invasion of privacy and obtaining privately authored posts by deceit (check Facebook rule PL).
The marvellous clanger which named their 1 man down as the only person writing the exposé they were working on. This made us laugh very much too..
Collier’s notorious gross invasion of privacy tendancies were previously reported here by @yoursocvoice blog Twitter Troll Networks
Which brings us onto @MomentumGod2 (MG2) a sockpuppet for Gnasher. MG2 (run by a few notorious Pro Israel agitators) let yet another howler loose the day they were vexed by harrassment victims of Gnasher/LabourAgainstAS organising and starting off their crowdfunding to take legal action. The account states he is ‘shitting’ himself at action ONLY being raised against Gnasher and LabourAGainstAS (who are the same team). Thanks for confirming!
After the Pro Israel mass reporting groups were called on, a member of the crowdfunder staff (Genevieve) with Justgiving (please boycott them) caved in to the demands of such notorieties as Kim Jong-Un and sockpuppet Twitter user Ben Marsden amongst other steaming deluded right-wingers.
At this point I was intrigued by the Ben Marsden account throwing his weight about, so decided to investigate. Who could this be?? He had a Luton FC cover photo until I realised who it was and started hinting in public only for him to change it to a nice scenic random honest it’s not me guv photo of somewhere random. So here are the clues.
- Intelligent alpha male with athletic physique? Hmm (likes to blow his own trumpet)
- Supports Chelsea
- Luton cover photo
- Bangs on about Islamism
- Hates Leftists
- ‘Interested’ in politics
- Supports Israel
- Has Israellycool people licking his boots
- Openly chats with Gnasherjew and its sock MomentumGod2 because he HATES Labour and Corbyn because he is a soft lefty and likes muslims (which is actually just not being a racist dick).
Let’s see what ‘Ben’ did after David Collier (Gnasherjew) released his classic underwhelming drivel where he frantically tries to connect Corbyn to anything and everything because he never ever wants Corbyn to reach power.
Yes we know Collier but fortunately you can’t control everybody registered to vote and he will win after I suspect setting his legal team on you..
Back to Ben.. he seemed realllly over the moon about Collier’s tome.. By the way, those of us with nouse knew you were in PL and never posted in there! So your work is minus the great thinkers.. yes you collected the remnants David.
1st up Ben goes Gung Ho at the bogus charity ‘Campaign Against Anybody we don’t like’ (as we affectionately call it) Go Ben!
2nd Ben rolls around in the hay with Andrew Burridge from Urmston & Stretford CLP – Ben seems friendly with all these Blairites and Tories, just who could it be..
We are just wondering what the little racist Ben has to say after this?
3rd BOOM straight to Guido Fawkes the most rancid man on the interwebz – I’m beginning to love this Ben character who brings Blairite, Tories and the far-right (him) together.
The previous year ‘Ben’ had a little lovers tiff with Collier or Dick or the other two and didn’t like that he voted for the only decent MP near him who happened to be Labour. But don’t worry, Gnasher knows Ben realllly well don’t you worry about that
So when you talk about working with racist scum Collier. Look at yourself first.
