Another Milestone for Maskil – My First Anti-Semitic Hate Comment

by Maskil on 8 Oct 2009

I’m pleased to announce that Maskil just reached another auspicious milestone – the first anti-Semitic “hate-mail” comment – from someone calling himself Adam979 (in Hampshire?). The comment appeared on “Google Knol: The Next Big Thing for anti-Semitism 2.0?”, which I posted more than a year ago.

Below are the text and user details of the comment; I’ve deleted the comment itself from the blog post:

New comment on your post #399 “Google Knol: The Next Big Thing for anti-Semitism 2.0?”

Whois :
Wow what are you whining about now. Come on it’s distasteful how you guys cry and cry about the world being so tough. It’s pathetic considering that you yids have been at it for longer and become more adept at the very things you are bleating about a long time ago.
Stop your whining, or is that simply another endearing trait of your big nosed race.
You can see all comments on this post here:

I could be wrong, but I don’t think I was whining. I was trying to be analytical, factual and reasoned (although I’ll be the first to admit that we do whine a bit. We even have Yiddish words like “kvetch” to describe it). I’m also reluctant to cry wolf when it comes to anti-Semitism. As I said in an earlier post:

I have to admit that – because I’m reluctant to see every bruising encounter between Gentile and Jew as anti-Semitism – I’ve never been a big fan of the ADL. If someone dislikes some or all the Jews he or she has personally encountered, that is not anti-Semitism. As soon as he or she forms or adopts and promotes theories to explain this dislike, and applies it to all the Jews who have ever lived, that’s anti-Semitism.

What I call “Social Anti-Semitism” – plain old-fashioned dislike of Jews you’ve met in person – is best ignored (as a people, nobody ever accused us of being “likeable” anyway). Once that spills over into hate speech, Holocaust denial, demonization of Israel and racial theories, then it’s a different matter.

This comment, I’m afraid, crossed the line into that murky territory and starts to generalise and build theories around why we (as a “race”) are supposedly the way we are.

So, to Adam979 and everyone who thinks and acts like him: Drop Dead.


Apparently our “hero” Adam979 (who could be from Leicester rather than Hampshire) was searching on the term “will adsense allow my anti-israel blog?” Google gave him just one result; my blog post on Google Knol.

To answer your question, I’m sure they will, Adam.  Unless you believe Google is also run by the “big nosed race”. Which I’m sure is the explanation you’ll use if they turn you down for any reason.
