Media paints British Zionist settler as “peace lover”

Editor’s Note

MSN News (along with several other mainstream news outlets) are portraying the British Zionist settler killed in yesterday’s Jerusalem synagogue attack – or more aptly, resistance operation – as a man who merely wanted peace.

British Zionist Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg was born in Liverpool, and later moved from London to Palestine as part of the Zionist project. Using his ethnicity and religious persuasion he has usurped Palestinian land and rights, claiming unique Jews-only rights in a land that does not belong to him, a land occupied by the foreign usurping entity that granted him his racist privileges. These actions are not consistent with a person wanting peace.

That a Zionist settler can be portrayed as a peace lover is an example of the mental gymnastics that Jewish rhetoric must perform in order to paint the victimiser as the victim.

Synagogue victim ‘wanted peace’

A Briton who was killed in a terrifying attack on a synagogue in Jerusalem “only wanted peace”, a relative has said.

Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Goldberg was one of four people murdered when two Palestinian militants stormed the synagogue and attacked worshippers with knives, axes and guns before they were shot dead by police.

Mr Goldberg, 68, was a married father of six with several grandchildren and great grandchildren, his cousin Michelle Hirschfield said.

She said he was born and brought up in Liverpool and later lived and worked in London before moving to live in Israel with his family.

“He was a peaceful man, not politically involved. He only wanted peace,” she said.

Ms Hirschfield described her concern after reports began to emerge of the attack, which happened in Jerusalem’s Har Nof neighbourhood, an ultra-Orthodox area.

She told the BBC: “I heard the news this morning so texted my cousin to check he was OK. When I heard nothing back, I called my sister who lives nearby.

“She tried calling him too but when she got no reply she went to the house. [Mr Goldberg’s] son was there – very distressed. He said his mum had gone to the synagogue to get more information.

“After a while, my sister called me to say that he had indeed been killed.”

It is thought Mr Goldberg moved to Israel from Golders Green, north London, in the early 1990s. He held dual British-Israeli citizenship.

Israeli police confirmed the other three dead victims were Americans who also held dual citizenship. They were named as Mosheh Twersky, Aryeh Kupinsky and Cary William Levine.

Thousands of people attended funerals of the victims in Jerusalem.

The attack early today prompted condemnation from British politicians.

Prime Minister David Cameron said: “I’m appalled by today’s horrific attack on worshippers at a Jerusalem synagogue. My thoughts are with the victims’ families.”

Labour leader Ed Miliband wrote on Twitter: ” My thoughts are with the families of the victims and people of the holy city. I’m horrified by the barbaric attack on the synagogue in Jerusalem – an appalling act of terrorism to be totally condemned.”

Earlier Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond joined US secretary of state John Kerry in condemning the attack. Speaking in London, Mr Kerry and Mr Hammond called on the Palestinian leadership “at every single level” to condemn the assault.

“To have this kind of act, which is a pure result of incitement, of calls for days of rage, of irresponsibility is unacceptable,” Mr Kerry told reporters.

“The Palestinian leadership must condemn this and they must begin to take serious steps to restrain any kind of incitement that comes from their language, from other people’s language, and exhibit the kind of leadership that is necessary to put this region on a different path.”

Mr Hammond added: “Both sides in this conflict need to do everything possible to de-escalate the situation and reduce the tension we’ve seen in Jerusalem over the past few weeks, which is extremely dangerous for both Palestinian and Jewish communities in that area.”

The attack comes amid heightened tensions in the city, with a wave of attacks by Palestinians on Israelis killing at least six people in recent weeks.

Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the violence as the “cruel murder of Jews who came to pray and were killed by despicable murderers”.

He blamed the attack on incitement by the Islamic militant group Hamas and Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas, which he said the international community had been “irresponsibly ignoring”.

A Foreign Office spokesman said: “We are aware of the death of a dual British-Israeli national in Israel on November 18, 2014.”

  1. What hypocrites, not a whimper for the 2000 civilians murdered in Gaza and tens of thousands terrorized and left homeless. No evidence or proof any Palestinian killed teens. I guess jews don’t need proof to ethnicity cleans Palestinians from their own lands.

  2. Apart from one dead Jew apartheid enforcer,
    four other ‘victims’ were so-called ‘rabbis’ –
    three of whom held US passports and one a
    UK passport. Neither of these four life-long
    Satan-worshippers could be easily mistaken
    for a Brit or an American…
    And, of course, none of those vile Talmudic
    parasites ever applied for a Palestinian visa.
    Yet, there they were, in the Jew-occupied
    Palestine, threatening to take over – or even
    to demolish – the second most important
    Mosque in the world. Just how ‘innocent’
    could those Talmudic ‘victims’ be?…
    Yet, just like all other small-time Jews, they
    were little more than stupid little patsies
    set up for a fall as ‘victims of terrorism’ –
    victims-perpetrators, in fact.
    Imagine a horde of blood-sucking Khazars
    descending upon Rome – and threatening
    to take over or to demolish the St. Peter’s
    Basilica!

    1. Salaam brother Patrick,

      Actually, Al-Aqsa is the third holiest site to Muslims, after the Kaaba in Mecca and the mosque of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (SAWW) in Medina.

      Thank you for stopping by and indeed, the thought of the monsters assaulting St. Peter’s Basilica is particularly horrifying. Don’t even want to think again about such a thing happening.

  3. … and destroying palestinians’ houses, killing them, stealing their lands that belongsto them for eons, destroying their orchards. kidnaping and torturing and killing palestian children, killing children with bullet inthe head or running over them with a car … all this is OK? It is acceptable and allowed? And what about the Palestinian’s resources sold by Bibi to foreign interest? And what about the pisonning of the Palestinian’s potable water wells? The list can be very long here… Palestinians has to shut up and just accept all that violence and genociding with gratitude? Come on dammit! Wake up people.

    … Oh! Forgot… and what about the Palestinians killed and wounded when israelis attack their mosque? What about the destruction and vandalizing of the mosque by the jews? This is OK for the jews to do that?

    … and finally… who really tells us that the 2 guys who went into that chuch were really palestinians? Who tells us it was not another trick of Bibi to get some of his agents or some illuminated to do this to make pressure on the rest of the world to get people to sign up his right to genocide? As he is pretty p.o. because many nations around the world are fed up with israel violence and aggree that Palestine should be a free nation… who really, really, really tells us all this is not just a big propaganda?

    1. Salaam sister,

      While we understand your skepticism wholeheartedly due to the usurping Zionist entity’s history of utilizing false flags, this was no such thing. The two brave Palestinian men who carried out the operation were members of the PFLP and the PFLP claimed responsibility for it. This was a response to weeks of Zionist aggression against the West Bank, Al-Quds and Al-Aqsa in particular. There was a historical retribution element to it as well as the synagogue in which these Jewish colonizers were vanquished in was built on top of Deir Yassin.
