We've arrived

LGF's Charles Johnson says 'You haven’t arrived until you have your very own stalker moonbat with a blog, issuing semi-literate "criticisms."'

So HonestReporting has apparently arrived.

Interesting news. I did a whois on the website and came up with the name Eric Ridenour from Alpharetta, GA. Googling this same name turns up an Eric Ridenour from Atlanta who belongs to the UCC Palestine Solidarity Campaign. His one published article to date has been, (

Qibya, 50 years of injustice and impunity. The article begins thusly:

"October 14, 2003 marked the 50th anniversary of a virtually forgotten massacre. In the Jordanian village of Qibya, a total of 69 civilians were murdered during a six-hour killing spree that nearly destroyed the entire town. The attackers blew up about forty houses, a school, a water pumping station, a police station and telephone office, and yet they sustained no casualties, since Qibya was virtually undefended. "

It is an Anti-Sharon Screed that clearly shows this purported HonestReporters supposedly non-existent bias.

Honest Reporting indeed.

The Jerusalem Post denies all access to the Toameh article he wrote there. I found a link to a copy of the Newsweek article from that 'watch' website.

Do you have a text/print copy of the JPost article, can you email it to me?
Was the Newsweek article they cite the same exact text of the Jerusalem Post article?

Is there any way to get rid of this site? It made it confusing to get to originally. It's unlikely he would give up his site so is it possible to bring litigation against him?

Why wouldn't you guy buy up etc...
how much would that have cost a couple hundred bucks?

Honest Reporting.ORG questions the number "20,000" as the number of Pals killed since 1948, and says that even B'tselem's site does not go back to 1948. What he fails to mention is that the TOTAL number of Pals killed since 1987 (including civilians and Pali "security forces"), according to B'tselem is 3,399.

Hmmmmm... 2004 to 1987 is 17 years. 2004 to 1948 is 56 years. If we extrapolate based on these numbers, the total number of Palis killed (including non-civilian combatants) from 1948 would be approximately 11,217.

By the way, if "" is trademarked, you may have a lawsuit against Honestreporting.Org for trademark violation. You should speak to your attorneys.
