Spam and Jerusalem

I've just emailed the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation what I hope is a pretty self-explanatory email.


For some time now I have been being spammed by a bunch of Zionist apologists, presumably because I frequently blog about Israeli human rights violations. These saddos, who call themselves Honest Reporting Canada (how Orwellian is that?) are currently asking their "subscribers" (strangely the "unsubscribe" function doesn't work) to bombard CBC with
complaints that you don't call enough people terrorists.

"Since our inception, we have called on the Canadian media to describe individuals whose intentional use of violence against civilians, done in order to achieve religious, political or ideological objectives, as terrorists. Instead, these individuals and their actions are labeled in the broadest political terms as militants, insurgents, activists, guerillas, and politicians."

I am pleased to see that CBC upholds the same high standards of journalistic and production ethics as the BBC World Service in this regard, and are resisting the temptation to describe as terrorists those Israeli "politicians" "soldiers" and "settlers" who have left such an egregious trail of slaughter, torture and theft through the Middle East over the past sixty years.

As requested, I copied my email with a covering note to "Honest Reporting Canada". I hope they liked it, spamming bastards.
