  1. A lawsuit against a Facebook group? What's next? Suing people for writing graffiti? How desperately pathetic can they get? I'm signing up!

        1. I don't actually recall if RIchard actually did bring suit, but I do recall when someone made a web site that parodied this blog a few years ago, Richard went ballistic and I do seem to recall that he threatened legal action. I also recall recently he mentioned some legal proceedings he has with a woman, but I don't know if it was a libel suit. I do know many "progressives" (who no doubt support 'free speech') like Michael Lerner, Neve Gordon and others like to bring libel suits against critics in order to silence debate.

          1. You don't know what you're talking about. The blog didn't parody my blog it IMPERSONATED me. Do you understand the difference? After five successive copyright violations Blogger took the site down. I didn't threaten legal action. I didn't have to. Neve Gordon brought suit against Steven Plaut because he called him a "Judenrat wannabe." I'm not aware of Michael Lerner ever suing anyone for libel. Pls. get yr facts straight before you write.

  2. freedom of speech is not the freedom of smear, so suing liars and libelists is not pro or against freedom of speech.
    Infact those who fight for the "freedom of smear" disguised as fighters for freedom of speech are the biggest and most imminent threat for freedom and democracy everywhere.

    1. Uh, I beg your pardon but yes, freedom of speech gives very wide latitude & the anti-Im Tirtzu Facebook group has certainly not libelled or lied about Ronen Shoval & Im Tirtzu. So let Shoval bring suit. Let's test the law & see if you're right or I'm right. If Israel is a democracy, then the court will throw out Shoval's suit so fast his head will spin. The threat to democracy comes fr. Im Tirtzu & not from its critics.
