A parliamentary candidate has defended himself against strong allegations of anti-Semitism after ranting about “evil Jews” in a series of vile blog posts.
His name is Peter Reynolds and he is one of 12 candidates in the Corby by-election in November, called after the resignation of Tory MP Louise Mensch.
In a number of blogs from January 2009, Peter Reynolds attack Israel’s actions during Operation Cast Lead.
His blog revealed repeated references to Israelis as “Nazis” and an attack on the BBC for showing a programme about Anne Frank.
Now, why would somebody who claims he is not an anti-Semite, have a problem with a programme about Anne Frank?
Peter Reynolds is standing for the Cannabis Law Reform party after being elected as its leader in February 2011.
I wonder if Peter's rantings about Jews and Israel were a result of Marijuana pipe dreams?
He claims, however, that the offensive blogs were “forgeries” created by people who had reproduced his work and altered it in an effort to show him as anti-Semitic.
Peter Reynolds provided the Jewish Chronicle with a web address for his "real site", but it linked to the exact same site as the one which carried the offensive articles, thus proving his lies, deceit and anti-Semitism.
In a number of pieces the passages appeared to remain the same, except for the use of the word “Jews” changed to “Israelis”.
Police confirmed they were investigating a complaint made by him in March regarding computer misuse, but no arrests have been made.
Peter Reynolds said: “I am vehemently opposed to Israeli genocide against Palestinians, but I refute entirely the allegations that I am anti-Jewish. I have Jewish friends.”
What kind of Jew would class a hate filled, anti-Semitic liar like Peter Reynolds as a friend? Unless Reynolds is referring to the lost and disowned "Jews" who join pro-Palestine rallies, call for the destruction of Israel and spit on the graves of real Jews.
In the first blog of 2009, Mr Reynolds appears to have written “I curse the evil Jews” before following it the next day with a claim that Israel was perpetrating “genocide” in Gaza.
Another blog post added: “Israel is now the Nazi power in the world. It is beyond forgiveness or redemption. Gaza is the new Auschwitz. The only difference is that your method of death is not Zyklon B.”
Unlike Gaza, Auschwitz did not have shopping malls or stockpiles of weaponry, the Jews who were sent there were systematically slaughtered in the thousands.
In Gaza, Israelis let go of land, uprooted Jews from their homes and gave everything they could to Gaza in the hope of peace, what did they receive in return from the Palestinians? Rockets, Nazi style propaganda, bloodshed, kidnappings and a constant threat on their border.
The blog referred to the former BBC director-general Mark Thompson as a “Zionist Nazi collaborator” following his decision not to show a Disaster's Emergency appeal for Gaza.
The website Peter Reynolds Watch, which claims to be dedicated to “exposing the despotic, far-Left, extremist politician”, called for him to resign from the by-election race.
Mr Reynolds, of Sutton Poyntz, Dorset, said the attacks on him included people posting fake profiles of him on sex sites and accusations that he sold Nazi memorabilia on market stalls.
An odd accusation to make up out of thin air, what with ranting about "evil Jews" selling Nazi memorabilia would fit your persona well.
The hate filled, racist Peter Reynolds, perhaps you should study the holocaust in depth and speak to a survivor, before comparing it to Israel's defensive procedures in Gaza, you ignorant fool.
We will be keeping a close watch on Peter Reynolds on-line activities and post any updates on his hate speech against Jews.
