BDS Leaders Promote Anti-Semitic Conspiracy Theory Linking Mossad to Charlie Hebdo Atrocity

The anti-Semitism at the heart of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement targeting Israel was again laid bare yesterday, as prominent activists from the campaign took to social media to advance the conspiracy theory that yesterday’s terrorist attack against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo was carried out by the Mossad.

Leading the charge was Greta Berlin, a spokesperson for the Free Gaza movement, an organization that has been closely involved with attempts to break Israel’s blockade against the Hamas regime in Gaza. In a Facebook posting, Berlin declared, “MOSSAD just hit the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo in a clumsy false flag designed to damage the accord between Palestine and France…Here’s hoping the French police will be able to tell a well executed hit by a well trained Israeli intelligence service and not assume the Muslims would be likely to attack France when France is their freind (sic.) Israel did tell France there would be grave consequences if they voted with Palestine. A four year old could see who is responsible for this terrible attack.”

Berlin’s colleague, Free Gaza co-founder Mary-Hughes Thompson, echoed those same views in a posting on Twitter. “#Hebdo killings indefensible. Can’t help thinking #JSIL Mossad false flag though. Killers spoke with perfect French accents. Time will tell,” she wrote. Even the International Business Times, a more mainstream publication, explicitly asked, “Charlie Hebdo Attack and Mossad Link: Is Israel Venting Its Fury for France’s Recognition of a Palestinian State?”  although the offending item was quickly removed by an editor at the publication.

The term “JSIL,” which stands for “Jewish State in the Levant,” is a derogatory term for the State of Israel coined by the American anti-Semitic propagandist Max Blumenthal, which seeks to compare the Jewish state with the Islamic State terrorist organization. A number of individuals who objected to Thompson’s use of the term, as well as her endorsement of the Charlie Hebdo conspiracy theory, received a volley of abuse from her in response, including such choice phrases as “Zionist trash.”

Free Gaza, which enthusiastically supports the BDS campaign and shares Hamas’s view that the State of Israel should be eliminated as sovereign entity, lists a number of vocal anti-Zionists on its Board of Directors, including James Abourezk, a former Senator from South Dakota; Noam Chomsky, the radical academic who has actively defended Holocaust and other genocide-deniers; and Baroness Jenny Tonge, a member of Britain’s House of Lords infamous for her frequent attacks on the UK Jewish community’s pro-Israel orientation.

Berlin’s remarks about the Charlie Hebdo slaughter are not the first time she has promoted anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. In 2012, even some Jewish anti-Zionists were angered by her endorsement of a video featuring an obscure anti-Semite named Eustace Mullins, who charged, in the words of Berlin’s tweet at the time, that “Zionists operated the concentration camps and helped murder millions of innocent Jews.”

Among Berlin’s defenders on that occasion was Larry Derfner, a former Jerusalem Post columnist who now writes for an anti-Zionist publication based in Israel named +972. Derfner took exception to Berlin being labeled as a “crazed Jew-hater” and attempted to portray her as a responsible, mainstream voice.

In August 2012, Berlin again blamed Israel for an attack by Islamist terrorists in Sinai in which 16 Egyptian soldiers were killed, asserting that the atrocity “works to Israel’s benefit.”

Since the Al Qaeda atrocities of September 11, 2001, the theme of clandestine Israeli involvement in terrorist outrages has been extremely popular with sections of the left, as well as with neo-Nazi and White Supremacist groups, Islamist organizations, and repressive regimes in countries like Iran and Venezuela.


  • What a load of crap. Greta was quoting what someone else had said at the time. It was clearly in quotation marks.

    Indeed like everyone one else we talked about this for days. Given it was a running 24 hours media topic it was unavoidable. And we talked about it from every possible angle. As usual we don’t take what is being said in the MSM as being the full story.

    Don’t you have a Gaza to bomb, a disabled school near Bethlehem to teargas, a wall to build or some more land to steal? Or a non Zionist Jew to sexually assault at the airport?

    Surely this is what you do, there is not real need to be attacking women that work at exposing the truth. I guess it isn’t just the Palestinians that are fun to screw with, it’s the grandma’s that fight for justice too.

    • Yani Haigh,don’t you have to chase young men across West Bank or were you kicked out as sugar mama stopped giving you money?

      • Greta Berlin is nasty, lying piece of work. Proposed an idea to USS Liberty Vets and she swiped the idea, and ousted the originator of the idea- claiming it was her own.

        When confronted? She got VERY ugly, nasty and claimed she was being threatened- by the Truth? Her alliance with the USS Liberty Vets has destroyed the workability and credibility of that organization, which has embraced her sleaziness and has become a reflection of her and Alison Weirs’ unethical behavior. Vicious, hateful hag

  • Greta, Mary and the lot of you BDS folks- JUST. SHOW. US. YOUR EVIDENCE. Don’t just spew forth your idiocy, provide us with some authenticated, corroborated, verifiable evidence.


  • Eliot Schickler

    BDS are blatant liars and those who spread this lie are homosexuals!

  • ‘ a four year old could see who is behind this attack’. Sadly the BDS people have less common sense than a four year old!

  • How did Algerian Muslim terrorists suddenly become Jews? Are Jews even allowed in Algeria? I suppose the murderous Al-Shabab, Boko Haram, Abu Sayef, Isis, Taliban and Al Qaida militants are also Jews? So where did all the Muslims disappear to?

  • Neil Kuchinsky

    Those who develop doubts about Zionism in the face of an onslaught of hate, propaganda and misinformation can always be reassured by the words of Israel-haters like Greta Berlin, because her words provide instant confirmation of BDS moral insanity and intellectual bankruptcy. Clearly, they are unequivocally nuts, so you, dear Zionist brothers and sisters, can be reassured that you are living in reality, just in case you had any doubts.

  • Mossad operation in retaliation for france recognising of Palestine. Same as the Norwegian massacre for boycott of israel.

  • I used to think that Larry Derfner was just a harmless crank when he wrote for JPost. Now I see that it was JPost itself that was the harmless crank, while Derfner was a more sinister cat than I thought. I hope JPost has changed a lot. They had no excuse for being so naive, since they knew the guy.

  • Don’t piss on my head and tell me it’s raining. Anyone with half a brain should be able to see through this…….then again Americans elected a clown to the Presidency, TWICE! I wish these people one thing…..not death, just agonizing PAIN. May they feel the pain of everyone who has lost someone by the hand of these bastards x100. Where are all the “moderate” Muslims? Silent like all those “moderate” Nazis in WWII? THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A “MODERATE” when your living guide espouses a TOTALITARIAN theocracy. You either accept it or you REJECT it……Perhaps someday there will be a Muslim with the balls to publish a Koran WITHOUT THE HATE AND AMORAL BEHAVIOR…..but until that day comes in the words of Churchill about Islam: “No stronger retrograde force exists in the world”.

    PS…Jordan is Palestine. Had Roosevelt lived…………..

  • After this kind trash coming for a sick brain, who is going to listen her ? Accusing the Mossad for the Paris killing, is like blaming Santa Clause for the San Francisco earthquake. This woman is raving lunatic.

    • Your blind or guided by the Zionist controlled media. See the French policeman that was the lead on the case of Charlie hebdo that decided to commit suicide. Right? Your dumb if you think we are.

      I wonder who is paying her to pronounce this Trash?

  • It is so sad to see again and again how easily we people are manipulated and divided…We do not know who is behind all this but we know from the past many moves have been controlled and manipulated by powers…No one defends crazy fanatic terrorist nor wants to live in country controlled by fanatic terrorist but lets not make all muslim and all arabs fanatic muslim terrorist …We are people good and bad …I believe we first chose people around our selfs because of their qualities not because of their religion
    Sure these acts of violence are despicable specially in the name of God …or Profit ..Or in the name turning countries and people against each other …?
    No God or Profit would want this kind of outcome or revenge….
    When I think God I think Truth..Purity Kindness..Wisdom..selflessness… Joy
    But when Pride Ego. Anger selfishness Revenge Enter…There is A brake..a devision
    I believe we can coexist if we make it a priority…if we build an army of none violence ..if we stop letting these acts control us and turn us against each other. I have dear friends from every race and religion people I love and
    I have met very ignorant and very selfish people from every race and every religion …This is not war between muslims and Jews
    Terrorism comes in different forms and comes from different places…lets not call every terrorist muslim …and just terrorists …..
    This a war about change about truth about Unity about humanity about good prevailing evil. About us demanding peace communication humility support each other help each other..Why do we only do that when disaster strikes ..then we forget color religion and all
    We need to demand that leaders do what they are supposed to do..Talk…find solutions and avoid violence in every possible way. We need leaders who unite us not divide us. We need leaders who educate inspire …We need more leaders Like Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Gandhi, Dali Lama …
    I know one thing for sure that No Mohamed No Jesus No Buda would want violence and blame to be our solution..If we all of a moment picture all these great profits here together …well I really don’t think they will be choosing or striving for this outcome…I believe they will make every effort to guide us to peace to unity to kindness
    We contribue to this world through our continuousness through our thoughts and mind speech and life stile..our job is to live as an example in our daily choices

  • she’s going to get what she deserves

    • So will the jews who did this obviously staged Mossad attack. And hopefully every satanist jew piece of trash on earth, starting with you.

      • You and your fellow anti-Semites should be glad that Israeli Jews (and most Jews, for that matter) are still around, and that the US – no thanks to Obama – supports them, for if they were gone, who would ignorant losers then blame for all of the world’s problems?

  • Carlos Luis Garcia

    Loads of Hasbara trolls filled with conviction and patriotism and a sense of superiority… the world is aware of the truth and the lies, Even before the Sykes-Picot agreement… The continued deception, disruption, division and deceit is hardly the “hidden-hand” tricks of old, the internet has exposed the zionists and the level of communication has the word spreading fast. There are billions of people tired of the same rubbish narrative, the same narrow band of narrative has worn thin. History repeats and the Zios will fall.

  • Steve Manning

    I think it was pixies or fairies. It couldn’t be those nice little Islamists

  • OOoooohhh!! I just saw that her Media Consulting company is GKB Associates. An anagram of KGB? Using her reasoning, we might be able to get her detained for being a spy. What’s sauce for the goose…

  • Ms. Berlin demonstrates the same sort of critical thinking as the Holocaust Deniers and the 9/11 conspiracy theorists. Even though a Yemeni Cleric has claimed to have pulled the strings on the attack, her mindset seems to be “You can’t prove that this is NOT the case (near impossibility of proving a negative notwithstanding), so it must BE the case”.

    Paranoia, as defined in the DSM, is very difficult to treat- true paranoids don’t believe that there’s any disturbed thought process. Therefore, can we just agree that she’s a “Useful Fool”?

    • You are obviously a typical mentally-unstable jewish sociopath, trying desperately to contain the information that the Mossad did this attck in retailiation for France’s vote in support of Palestine, just like the piece of jewish trash Anders Behring Breivik. You will pay for your crimes, scumbag.

  • I find you Zionist amusing. Anything anti zionist is contrived immediately as anti Semitic…when its Semites themselves who say such thing. Yet, when the shoe is on the other foot, and offensive things are said/written/drawn about the muslim community, you get on your high horses and claim freedom of speech/expression. Double standards. How surprising is that from Zionists – settlers from Europe who have displaced an indigenlus populatoon and rewritten history to somehow be shown as the victim rather than the vile aggressor. Just remember, what goes up must come down and every dog has his day…your empire of aggression and deceit too will one day fall and you will be recompensed justly.

  • Ilbert Phillips

    Now that an Al Queda has claimed responsibility for the attack in Paris and the murder of the journalists, will that stop the supporters of BDS from claiming the “the Jews did it.” No. Why? Because they are stuck in stupid and are incapable of moderating their claims when necessary. As God hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so will he harden the heart’s of the leaders of the BDS movement, who will in their hatred continue to make dumber than dumb allegations. They will eventually lose their credibility, to the extent they have any.

    • Did you know that geert Wilders, cartoonist for the original offensive mohammed cartoon was funded by David Harowitz? Read the bragging put out by the “athiest” charlie, it’s similar to the USSR.

  • Ilbert Phillips

    An al-Qaeda affiliate in Yemen claimed responsibility late Friday for the deadly attack on a satirical newspaper in France this week, not long after French police killed the suspects to end a three-day manhunt.
    A statement provided to the Associated Press from the group al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) said “the leadership of AQAP directed the operations and they have chosen their target carefully.” The statement said the attack, which killed 12 people at the offices of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, was intended as “revenge for the honor” of the Prophet Muhammad, the depiction of whom is forbidden by Islamic tradition. The magazine had repeatedly mocked him—and other religions—in cartoons.

  • Is it a antisemetic conspiracy theory if it’s true? #lavonaffair #ussliberty #9/11

  • Is it a antisemetic conspiracy theory of it’s true? #lavonaffair #ussliberty #9/11

  • The anti-Semitic conspiracy theories expressed by Greta Berlin and Mary Hughes in response to the tragic terrorist attack in Paris are deeply offensive, but not surprising. Berlin and Hughes already have a documented record of infusing anti-Semitism into their anti-Israel advocacy. At least one anti-Israel group has even gone so far as to distance itself from Berlin because of such rhetoric in the past. Still, using the deaths of a dozen innocent people at the hands of apparent terrorists to promote such hatred is a new low.

    • Haha as if it’s not the mossad’s motto to start war by deception. Was Israel’s most recent slaughter in Gaza deemed multiple acts of terrorism?

    • Seems like some one hit a nerve. When did ashkernazi become Semite and when did Arabs become anti Semite? Ashkenazi originated in Europe.Here is another logicaql fallacy. ” She is using the death of thousand” no she is not she is not she is saying what happens. Nice method to hut people up. Reality hurts, doesn’t it? But lets talk about new low Now we can see that the time France voted pro Palestinian resolution this happens. What a coincidence. You want to make Isreali of hate and victim but we can see who continuously is trying to stop Palestrina form reporting and starting a international report on the ethnic cleanings committed by Israeli and them trying to assure the world that their own investigation is good enough. The defying of international laws by Israeli expanding illegal expansion further. We see your faces no where to hide and that international investigation soon or latter it’s coming.

    • Of course, there were the dancing Israelis on Sept 11 2001 who filmed and celebrated the attacks on the towers. Israel also bombed the U.S.S. Liberty. They bombed the king david hotel, carried out the lavon affair, and were caught spying on the United States via Jonathan Pollard. Pollard sits in federal prison now. Israel continuously denied he worked for them until recently… when they asked for his release! NO reason to suspect Israel though! LOL!

      • “Dancing Israelis”? Did you mean the Palestinians who danced in the streets after 9/11 and distributed candy in the streets (and subsequently threatened reporters not to report on that)?
        Historical revisionism – the strength of the Palestinians and their useful idiot shill.

  • You can blame berlin yep or nop the fact is there’s a huge war between muslim and pale persons or white pupils so the best thing before you use that pen I mean the magazine persons. Think of your family or citizen again stating a war is not game please don’t. Be killed for these politians blood suckers

  • Thy destroyers and they that made thee waste shall go forth of thee.

  • It’s so outrageous I am surprised that she is getting any press time. How about some credible evidence? Because if this is obvious to a 4 year old, it can only be a 4 year old brainwashed Palestinian child.

  • Hoekom Jy My Haat

    Will Europe ever learn? Islam will not be happy until every major cathedral in Europe is turned into a mosque, and every christian woman is forced to veil herself to avoid moslem gang rape.

  • Idiotic claims such as this one, show how desperate and uninformed the BDS movement really is. Why would another terrorist hold hostages for the release of the killers if the Mossad was behind the killings?

    • Agreed, Isaac. The 3 terrorists all have a radical jihadist history and are on “no fly lists” but the icing on the cake is the congratulations they have received from radical jihadist leaders.

  • to France is really a difficult choice: whether the vote after the horrific terrorist attacks in Paris again “for” Palestinian state if Abbas decides to seek a second UN Security Council for priznananiem Palestine, as he promised. This is not a conspiracy theory – this is politics. The attack on the freedom of the press is not to blame. Rather, it is a boomerang war in Iraq returns to Europe

  • This self hating Jew will be swallowed by her cause. These moslem terrorists would have killed her regardless of her politics.

  • Berlin? Not really worth the ink or mention .

  • Mossad is not a Jewish organization, but a political Zionist one. What is actually sad is how useless and limp the term anti-semitic has become especially when used by people who don’t even know the meaning of the word. What if the Mossad didn’t have Jews interest at heart but another agenda that has nothing to do with Judaism. The condition for Jews has gotten worse not because of “Anti Semites” but the actions of a Murderous Zionist regime masking itself as Jewish. What if it turns out to be the Mossad, what do you think the state of Jewry is going to be Europe….

  • Why doesn’t she go live in IS controlled territories? She would probably be beheaded before she could open her ill informed mouth!

    Charlie Hebdo Attack and Mossad Link: Is Israel Venting Its Fury For France’s Recognition of Palestine State?

    There is no clarity on which organisation is behind the attack on French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris on Wednesday and therefore, conspiracy theories are gaining traction in internet forums.

    Fingers are being pointed toward intelligence agencies and Mossad of Israel is a prime contender.

    It is believed that Israel has a grouse against France, especially because French MPs voted in favour of recognising the Palestinian state and also France voted against Israel at the UN recently, conspiracy bloggers such as ‘Aangirfan’ note.

    In Early December 2014, when France’s lower house of parliament voted 339 votes to 151 urging the government to recognise the Palestinian state, Israel was patently unhappy. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the vote a “grave mistake”.

    Israel had warned France of grave consequences even before the country voted in favour of Palestine. Speaking to reporters in Jerusalem, France 24 reported Netanyahu as saying that time: “Do they have nothing better to do at a time of beheadings across the Middle East, including that of a French citizen? Recognition of a Palestinian state by France would be a grave mistake.

    “The State of Israel is the homeland of the Jewish people, the only state that we have, and the Palestinians demanding a state do not want to recognise the right to have a state for the Jewish people.”

    Israel, last week, also expressed its “deep disappointment” with France for voting for a Palestinian resolution at the UN Security Council and calling for a full IDF withdrawal to the pre-1967 lines by the end of 2017, the Jerusalem Post reported.

    France was one of eight countries supporting Palestine in the Security Council – although it fell one-vote short of the nine necessary to pass.

    Although there is no way to verify the claims that Mossad was involved, the backdrop in which the attack took place seems to indicate that they might be involved, many conspiracy theorists have noted. Mossad is responsible for intelligence collection and has undertaken many covert operations for Israel in Europe that aim to further their Jewish cause.

      Abdullah Azzam Brigades: AN ISLAMIC TERROR ORGANIZATION

    • Al qaeda is claiming they, the killers, claimed themselves to be members of Al Qaeda. Aside from all the mounting evidence of their al qaeda mates. You are a scary lady.

  • Nina Friedman

    What I love most about all this is that these sympathizers of these terrorists groups is that they have blinders on. They have such narrow vision and they don’t see the big picture.
    They hate Jews and Zionists so much that they don’t realize that if the Jihad goals are met (the annihilation of Israel and all the Jews of the world). The first terrorist group that will connect with her will probably thank her as they cut off her head.
    What makes her think that she will survive all this?
    She isn’t a Muslim and even if she is that won’t stop ISIS from beheading her because she doesn’t wear a Hijab or doesn’t marry who they say she should, or she will become a slave.
    Does she really believe that they have any sympathy for her? Does she really believe they care one way or another if she spews this nonsense or not? As long as their goals are met, they couldn’t care where, or from who, it comes from.
    She ought to pay attention to what they do to women who aren’t born of their blood!

  • Enezio E. de Almeida Filho

    Have no one to blame? Blame the Jews!

  • Mss. Berlin should be tried for inciting crime and violence. Hers is a criminal mind in the body of a spokesperson. As she loves so much the spotlight, she loves so much those who seek it as well, like these terrorists who daily commit heinous crimes. Some incited by the hate she represents. Any criminal organized movement has those who inspire and encourage and those who pull the trigger. Why is she not living in Gaza? Does she have an answer for that?

  • Pierre Elie Mamou

    of course! and isis (daesh) is in reality 5000000 Tsahal soldiers disguised with black nijab: the world can begin to be scared

  • Penina Kutner

    I was not surprised. As soon as I heard about it I said “the Israeli/Jews will blamed

  • I have ‘butted heads’ with Greta Berlin on a number of occasions on various FB groups, particularly on AN INDEPENDENT AND SOVEREIGN PALESTINE AND SAFE ISRAEL, a closed FB group originally set up to facilitate dialogue between Israelis and Palestinians and which she has turned into a hate-fest of Israeli and Jew bashing. She is incapable of rational discourse or of accepting any information that contradicts her world view. The moment you disagree with her perspective, she resorts to the most hateful abusive language. In one discussion she referred to New York Jews who went to fight in the 1948 War of Independence as the worst of ‘Jewish Trash’. Apparently her last Husband was a Jew, hence the surname Berlin.

  • BEYOND DISGUSTING. VILE OUTRAGE. BERLIN-This is the result of inbred hatred. Lets hope her parents are deceased and Im sure they would be singing in their graves to have such a wonderful daughter like this. Whats even scarier if she has family of her own. If there is one jewish terrorist in the world they need to pay her a complimentary visit. Im sure she will make a great profit once the exploding prayer mats from china arrive.

  • Lauren Goldman

    Look at the expression of the muslim woman watching her. Her face says; “What a dupe.” What is that annoying, high pitched sound? Probably just Berlin whining about the poor ‘palestinians.’

    • Funny, Lauren. I noticed and couldn’t help but be very curious about that woman’s expression too. Very suspiciously vindictive and manipulative. This woman Berlin is a puppet on a string, one that my faith instinctually guarantees Hashem will cut off and cast into the fire.

  • Luigi Rosolin

    That Turkey is happy to had such enemy of Israel is proving how much they support Islamic terrorist as they are the one facilitating many group operating with the army support inside and outside Turkey.
    The western country a part a few are simply ignoring the well documented double play. The France case is a clear incapacity by western authority to control potential extremist like the one that had massacre for the reason that Mohammed the so call prophet was not a good man but right the opposite.

  • Coen Vanderstede

    It’s always shameful to see people with self declared high moral standards trying to force people to do things they don’t want to do. Ms Berlin probably is aware of this. But… anything to be cheered at. Even if it is in Turkey and organized by an organisation that wants to wipe out the land of her own people. But hey, at least she won’t be assassined by a jihadi commando.

  • stanley phillips

    This lady is a Mossad plant to make people doubt the Palestinian cause!


  • You sound more like Al Jazeera than Algemeiner. Blaming the Jews for everything. Trouble is you do it to yourselves with such articles. The Whole World are standing together for once. Why the “poor old me.” sentiment. It is out of place. Don’t forget twelve people were murdered yesterday and probably the majority were brave gentiles. Why does it always have to be about you? Stop it for your own sakes. Nobody was blaming Mossad. I flicked between the channels nearly all day yesterday including France Vingt Quatre and not a word regarding the Jews, Mossad or Israel. (Just a very respectful message from PM. Netanyahu. ) A little bit of self censorship wouldn’t go amiss at a time such as this. Stop fuelling the fire of anti semites.

  • This website is actually helping her to promote herself.
    Other websites will pick up Algemeiner’s story and sp on and on and on…
    This is how it spreads around the world.
    And the accent will be of course on Mossad.
    Then why Algemeiner had to qrite about this crap ???
    I suggest, will be much better, this crap is removed.
    Thank you.

  • Berlin is an idiot who speaks only for herself. she will soon fade into obscurity or a nursing home, just like BDS. She lives in fantasy land.

    This Berlin woman (may she rot in hell) should go & live in muslim land and stop ranting about Israel!

    whoever wrote this does not deserve the time or the effort of a reply. Just because some idiot writes something it does not make it so. Let this dog bark.

  • Of course the Mossad was behind it as they are behind turning the moon into kosher cheese, not just ordinary cheese. Berlin, who until this comment by her, was unknown to me, is a nonentity and not worth the time of day …. or night!

      The “lady” is clearly delusional. It must be devastating for the BDS crowd and all other anti-semites to have these Muslims, Jihadists carry out these barbaric acts, so what do they do? They do the blame thing. I hope BDSers fry in hell.

  • Prime example of how grotesque is a self hating Jewess.

  • Because of people like Berlin, there will never be peace.

  • You are blind. This WAS a Zionist attack. Why would islamists make something they hate the most popular magazine in 2015? Because they werent islamists. I dont have a religion. I dont hate anybody. Abu Bakr is a Mossad agent called Simon Elliot, look it up. The world is upside down get the truth. INFOWARS.COM

  • Palestine just carried out a terrorist attack against the nation that just recognized them….yeah riiight,

    Sorry they aren’t Israelis. They have courage and aren’t cowards. Just like some scary unknown group just attacked mosques in Sweden when Israel just banned Swede Mads Gilbert and they recognized Palestine also…

    Your lies are getting more and more transparent…

    Zionism is the most toxic form of antisemitism…

    • First of all, nobody claimed “Palestine” carried out a terrorist attack and nobody from Sweden was banned from entering Israel, the foreign minister just refused to meet with the Swedish counterpart. “Zionism is the most toxic form of anti-Semitism” makes absolutely no sense. Zionism is simply the support of seeing Jews return to their historic homeland, the eternal covenant between G-D and Jews in the Torah. Unless you’re claiming a central tenant of Judaism is anti-Semitic, you’re talking nonsense.

  • Every member of BDS blames Israel for Auschwitz. It’s that insanity thing called antisemitism. You understand….

    • That’s what happens when they put a sorry ass receiver like Crabtree on you that’s the result you gunna get….But to be relevant it is horrible that people can live in this world and still believe such neanderthal things. People like to think the world has progressed but it hasnt at all. If people were capable of doint so there would be another Jewish holocaust. The unfortunate reality is that there are holocausts taking place in other countries (mostly arab ones) and these anti semitic groups don’t seem to care about that at all. All they do is look for things to blame on Israel.

  • The lies and distortions that come from these extreme nuts
    pushing the BDS warfare button know no limits. They create links out of whole cloth to suit their anti-Semitism. IN Q word, theyare beyond obscene. Remember it was the likes of Himmer and Goebbels who invented the Big Lie.

    Today they have a new international following using the same old techniques; make the lies and distortions BIG, promote them as though they were true and succeed in conning rational people in every country.

    We in the West hqve failed to teach our youth the broader lessons from WWII. Hitler and company must be hoisting their steins in a toast to their success.

  • Bullfrog Europe

    She, Greta Berlin is pure vermin, riddled with hate & a distorter of the truth.

  • One should abstain from references to berlin’s appearance; one imagines that she’s doing the best she can with what she’s got and if the results are laughable or hideous, one should avoid comment and deal with her “ideas” or what passes for her ideas. And, there she is a beast and deserves to be called a beast. berlin said that “a 4 year old could see who’s responsible” for the attack on Charlie Hebdo. That’s the problem: berlin uses the cognitive tools of a 4 year old: No need for evidence, inability to consider contrary evidence, eager submission to whim or infantile hatred and prejudice, etc. Not a pretty picture.

  • My only question is this: why are scum like greta berlin, mary hughes-thompson, and max blumenthal still alive ?? Seems to me it would be easy to make them disappear once and for all.

    • Extraordinary Rendition for these three to Northwestern Iraq sounds like a great idea. Just chopper them in under cover of a moonless desert night and fly out three lighter. Can we get Michael Moore in there, too?

      “It could happen…” – J. Tenuta

    • I know how you feel but if our way of life isn’t strong enough to withstand odious little toads like the one’s you mention, then we are in deep shit. These three just represent the tip of the ice berg of Progressive Puke thinking. People who are uncomfortable, at a gut level, with the whole notion of a ‘free’ people will behave just as these poltroons do. This is a constant presence and requires that we, who value freedom, don’t become complacent in our defense of freedom. Something that I am afraid the US intelligentsia have done, to their shame. There are people and organization out there like Richard Epstein, the late Milton Friedman, the Cato Institute and Reason magazine that fight for freedom but they are swamped in our culture, academic culture anyway, with the number of Progressive Pukes in power in culturally sensitive place. We all need to do our part and we’re stronger for it if we do it without violence.

  • Mickey Oberman

    The desperate efforts of a dying BDS to leave its mark.
    Now the world knows its mark can only be the swastika.

  • Allan Pogrund

    Driven by hate and virulent anti-Semitism, Berlin raises the banner of Nazism at every opportunity. What pathology has driven her to such depths?

  • It comes as no surprise to me that it took less than a day for these obsessive, Anti-Semitic paranoids to blame Israel and,in this way, French Jews. If there was any truth in this accusation and it were discovered, think of the the ramifications. Jewish people are always accused of being either ruthless or devious. If that is true why would we do this heinous thing because for whom ever did this it is a game changer in France if not the whole Westernized freedom-loving world.

  • This BDS leader is a bigot — plain and simple. That she is getting any Media attention instead of ignoring this moron is beyond ludicrous. I agree that challenging those who express hatred through the internet needs to be monitored and where hate speech is a crime, it should be brought to the proper authorities for handling and/or pressing charges. Other than that why give any credibility to this asshat named Greta Berlin???

  • Greta Berlin Is A Dangerous Individual Who Specializes In
    Sprending Erroneous Lies.

    Her Platform Is Anti Semitic. To A Level That Is Unconscionable…

    Greta Berlin Has NO MORAL COMPASS…People Who Follow Her Are

    Apparently Those Who Speak The Loudest Will Be Heard…

  • Anti-Semites are coming out of the woodwork right now. Both extreme leftists and extreme rightists are making up lies about Israel!

  • berlin and her crew are merely oozing bags of sewage with a piehole. their strange eerie pathology would have earned them a locked cell in the mental asylums of olden times. not the best of times but at least society was willling to tell the difference between nutcrazy and virulently evil. and, keep in mind that every anti-semite is either one or the other.

  • This infamous broad should be sued for incitement to murder. She’s a wacko, which explains why turds like her float to the top of the septic tank. BTW, “BDS” is also popularly referenced as “Bowel Disease Service. Too bad Jews are so civilized they would never even dream of giving this whack-job the sharia-treatment.

  • who listens to her nonsense besides her psychiatrist ?

  • I would rather be ‘Zionist trash’ then bigoted excrement such as Frau Berlin. She is a blight on humanity, a crazed Neo-Nazi, and vermin incarnate.

  • All these BDS women are barren.

  • Berlin claims all these acts are done by Mossad and are in the best interest of Israel? What a schmuck, seriously.

    You know what else would be in the best interest of Israel? Getting rid of this wench berlin.

  • Shalom-Hillel

    There is an informal media code to present Islam in a positive light, obscure Islamists’ persecution of Christians, and always, always aim zingers at Israel. It’s done to manipulate public perceptions to not be too pro-Israel. When something like this monstrous shooting occurs, and the perpetrators are Muslims, it throws their spin out of kilter. It makes Muslims look like killers. What do they do then? Say Israel did it. The first one I heard this from was a white supremacist. The one thing they and the hard Left agree on — the Jews (“Zionists”).

  • Berlin was cast adrift by none other than Ali Abunimah of Electronic Intifada . A hard core Israel hater , Abunimah was quick to denounce her for the damage caused to the BDS cult . It had Nothing to do with the fact that she’s an antisemite pure and simple

  • This “person” Greta Berlin is one of a group (including some Jews) that make their living giving anti-Israel & anti-Semitic speeches!!!

    After 911 they were claiming the Mossad was responsible and warned all the Jews to stay away from the towers…..EVEN AFTER THE ARABS CLAIMED RESPONSIBILITY…….
    ….later the araaaaabs feeling they were in deep doodooo denied being involved and claimed it was the Jews BECAUSE the arabs just weren’t smart enough to pull something like that off!!!!!!

  • Greta Berlin should be arrested for being a racist and for inciting hatred and anti Semitism thus fuelling the flames to create more violence toward Israel and Jews.

  • Just as it terribly hard to comprehend the lack of mental acuity and mental health which allows those who think they believe in Islam to engage in these unforgivable acts of sheer murder- of mass homicide in the guise of a religion led by a false sect gone off the deep end of insanity and murderousness into the advocacy of terror as if it could ever be pleasing to the real Prophet Muhammed, it is quite beyond the comprehension of rational humans to understand the extent of hate against Israel and the Jews that must exist to see the insanity of this rationalized sick beyond doubt and crazily in reality denial, that a woman would say that a four year old could see who is responsible for the attack…yes a four year old can see the actual photos of the perpetrators, and their ancestry and misguided beyond sanity motivations. Is the woman so wrapped in wrong thinking, so warped by misguided hatred, so blinded by erroneous teaching that she thinks only she can see the light and blame the victims of the attack as the perpetrators? Does she think these acts of terror in France against Jews in recent days did not exist at all, or were a clever plot by the Mossad to kill Jews while in synagogue or store or street so as to somehow hurt the creation of a Palestinian State? Has she any idea of how blind she has become to what is real and what is Israel?

  • In a way, I’m glad they said moronic hateful stuff like this, because it helps expose the vile nature of BDS.

  • Not surprising that BDS goes after Israel. They think of themselves as postmodernism, and modernity is essentially Jewish in their minds. I wrote about the conflict between modernism and modernity here: Modernity signifies the emancipation of the Jews, the rise of women, and of ordinary people, including workers.

  • “BDS by any other name…”

    Big Bang Theory…
    Jews did it!
    Demise of Dinosaurs…
    Jews did it!
    Killing Leonidas and the 300
    Jews did it!
    Killing Jesus…
    Definitely the Jews!
    Fall of Rome…
    Yup, the Jews again!
    Crusades in the Levant…
    Jewish money lenders!
    The Bubonic Plague…
    F*****g Jews!
    A thirsty Madam Guillotine…
    A Jewish inspired insurgency!
    Global 1929 Crash…
    Jews? Of course! Read the “Protocols…”
    That Jew organ, Mossad!
    Charlie Hebdo…
    Why do you even ask?

  • It took them 2 days to hatch 2 different conspiracy theories that Jews were behind this. It really feels like 1939 again. The perps spoke perfect French so it must be the Mossad? She thinks the Jews are so brilliantly diabolical that Israelis speak better French then Algerians who live in France.

  • Steve Edelman

    I wonder if Greta Berlin was circumcised as a young girl.

  • This has to be the most outrageous.
    More voices are needed to combat the lies.

  • “Epstein’s housekeeper Alfredo Rodriguez testified Dershowitz stayed at Epstein’s house [at times] during the years when Epstein was assaulting minor females on a daily basis,” according to a 39-page “statement of undisputed facts” Scarola filed in Epstein’s defamation suit on April 8, 2011.

  • Larry Derfner was fired from the Jerusalem Post after he penned a rancid blog post justifying terrorist attacks against Israelis. He is a bottom feeder.

  • You pair need to use a spell check. Your English is pathetic.

    What Greta did was ” ” IE quote what someone else said.

    I read a lot of crap excuses from people suffering cognitive dissonance since these horrific murders. What make this so damn unacceptable is that these idiots have ‘feed the Zionists’. Seriously idiotic!

  • Only a rabid anti-Semite could fabricate and /or believe this twisted fantasy.

  • Seeing how Germany remains a friend of Israel’s, the city of Berlin should sue Greta Berlin for name defamation.

  • Ugly evil frustrated woman who will blame Israel at her own inability to be happy. She is a simple jew hater.

  • B.D.S. should really stand for “Bigoted Demonization Society”. Does anyone really believe that BDS really wants genuine peace? On the contrary, it feeds right into the radicalism we see happening in France. Instead of working hand and hand to solve a complex situation, this movement taps into the pent-up idealism and anger of college students, looking for a cause to support. It would be super-sad revisionism, if it there wasn’t so much hate. The problem with this cause is that it promotes hate (and not solutions). On the other hand, Jews need to learn from this, by using some of the same tactics (not hate ideology) that the Palestinians do. I mean honestly, I can’t help but admire their propaganda techniques. Even if they are devoid of facts, its an awesome methodology!

  • charlie johnson

    These people probably got their education by watching Micheal Moore documentaries.

  • Berlin is an awfull ugly antisemit. Not for nothing is her name “Berlin” the former capital of Nazism.How infamous does one have to be to construct connections to Israel and the Mossad, while already worldpress writes that french police already identyfied the perpetrators as French of algerian origin. The French should have stayed in Algier in the 50s. Would have spared them a lot of proble4ms they have today.This scum has to be deported back to the Maghreb.Nobody takes about gassing them, but they are shure up fot deportation.

    • Very well said to which may be added that it’s high time the Faux-Palestinians be deported too.

    • Tilford bartman

      The French should not have and really could not have stayed in Algeria. I read this evening that the two brothers had long been on the US “no fly list”, and that at least one of them was at one time under surveillance by French security authorities. But the fact is that there are about 5000 suspected Islamic Jihadis is France and not anywhere near the resources to keep them all under constant surveillance. So decisions have to me made who and when to put under surveillance, and this attack just shows the risk of having to make these imperfect decisions. I assume these brothers are French citizens so deporting them was not an option at all.

  • Berlin is trying to Blame Israel for the crimes of Islam ,Lying is what she does best ,Israel should file a lawsuit against here for difamation

    • Rafael Manory

      Such a step makes sense but it would mean that she can repeat her rants in Court…I am sorry that the Algemeiner repeats her claims, it would be much wiser in my opinion not to further publicize the opinions of these idiots…

    • Berlin? Her mind is as convoluted as the minds of the
      Muslim terrorists she supports.

      • Adolf Hitler wrote in mein kapmf evrything you need to know and if you just read it you will realise from where the problem is coming.we should all unite to destroy enemy of all humanity and evil doers from the begining of the world.they are cause of all missery ,wars,hunger in the world.If they are eradicated from the face of the earth the world will be much better place.Any way they are denied by the god long ago.Now it is a bit to late as they have over 30 nuclear warheads which can use for retaliation.But hope still exsist.Hezbollah is living example of that and resistance and defeat of evil is possible.Wake up christian,muslims and all other normal human beings and love and peace will rule again over the world.
        United we stand divided we fall.

    The Syrian Virgin (REVIEW)

    The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love. CreateSpace, 2015. The Syrian Virgin, by Zack Love, is a very interesting novel. Equally a political and romantic thriller, at times a real page-turner, it gets you intimately involved in the dire situation in today’s Syria, as well as in the romantic entanglements of its mostly New York-based characters — whose entanglements just might determine the fate of that dire situation in Syria. Along the way it introduces a really important idea that somehow […]

    Unpacking the Nagorno-Karabakh Conflict and Its Ripple Effect on Israel’s Region – Aside from Israel itself, those with a vested interest in the Jewish state are accustomed to tracking developments related to Middle East players such as Iran, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. But much global attention has recently focused on the Caucasus region at the Europe-Asia border, specifically on the suddenly intensified violence between Azerbaijan and Armenia in the mountainous Nagorno-Karabakh area of western Azerbaijan. The Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, while not taking place in Israel’s immediate neighborhood, does have what one scholar called […]
