When Mary Rizzo’s ‘PeacePalestine’ site closed, she and Gilad Atzmon opened what was to be an up-market ‘think tank’ where the old silliness and obvious anti-Semitism would be consigned to the scrap heap. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be.
For Gilad Atzmon anti-Semitism is a hard habit to kick. And after a particularly vicious attack on veteran Israeli anti-Zionist Moshe Machover, Tribal Marxism for Dummies, among other articles which attracted flack from his previous supporters, Atzmon packed up his tent and left.
Meanwhile, without the support and subsidy of Atzmon, Rizzo became an increasingly forlorn figure. In one particularly reactionary article, at the time of Mubarak’s attack on Viva Palestina, one Haitham Sabbah demonstrated all the sterling qualities that a quisling is made of when he called on Viva Palestina to apologise to the Egyptian regime for having embarrassed it by trying to break the blockade!
As the Arab revolution spreads we are proud to announce that this vicious nest of racists and quislings has closed its doors!
