Such divisive and deceptive method of smearing and blacking out the defense, of dividing and capturing the audience, are not new for anyone who has experience with hasbara.
Mary Rizzo et al,
In your ranting reply to Mark Richie, you engage into smearing of someone who reveals to be an author you apparently hate. This is odious, especially since it is a renown Palestinian author with integrity and unrepentant commitment to Palestine. It was easy to find out who it was, just as it was uneasy to discover that you are engaging in slander and attacks behind the back against Palestinians.
IF the article you mention in your slanderous comment is "Through the Fog of Deception"
And IF it is indeed " full of unsubstantiated crap" and if it is indeed ”based not on fact, but on prejudice and lies” , then why don't YOU Mary et al. publish that article at Palestinian Think Tank, and give the readers a chance to make their own judgment?
Let all your readers have a look and judge for themselves, since you say "it's BS anyway and anyone can see that by taking a look"
And "since this person had been spamming and harassing for months" then why don't you "expose" her and publish her "harassment" and "spamming" for all your readers to see??
I had a look for myself, and made my judgement is that this person did not say a bad word against you personally, but expressed concerns about someone she does perceive as untrustworthy, and about a new direction taken by Palestine Think Tank, she disapproved with.
It begs the question as to what is your motivation, and what is your benefit, to propagate in Palestinian circles such slanderous and repeated smearing of this author ?
Mary Rizzo et al, your activity of personal vengeance against this respected Palestinian author is simply inexcusable. You pursue your smearing publicly without the incriminated person's knowledge or awareness. That you fully know your accusations are without merit explains your methods of sending around false rumors, ..........(I removed this part about the so called fake activist because I don't trust Mary)
Your readers deserve to see the evidence of your accusations against a Palestinian author, who proved her points of apprehension in her article with quote after quote of Kawther Salam.
People can READ, and they are well capable of making their own conclusions.
It is unconscionable for a website and a person who claims to be supportive of Palestine, to be deceptive, and divisive by engaging in smear campaigns in what seems to be a personal vendetta by Mary Rizzo against a Palestinian author, Nahida Izzat.
