Ehav Ever - Incorrect Article from Israel News Blog

So the blog is back for a little while. I didn't think I would start doing a written blog again, until I found out that someone had written an article about me and used a picture of me without my permission. There is an article I found out about that tries to play at the idea that Zionism can't be racist by placing my face on it in an attempt to show people if a person like me is a Zionist, then how can Zionism be racist.

They try to play up the article by acting as if they are describing an illegal racist zionist settler living in the west bank they link to this blog, and then use a photo of mine. The idea being the shock of somone reading the article when they see a supposed "black" face that the person will say, oh wait a minute Zionism can't be racist. What they don't realize is that this method does not work, and it is not even the point of Israel's existance.

There are several problems I have with the article and they are the following:
  1. The authors did not ask my permission before writing their peice.
  2. They did not ask to use my likeness.
  3. The article uses a token black kind of method that does not work, and has been proven not to work.
  4. I don't agree with their methods, and because I didn't agree to the article they misrepresented me.
  5. Their article states that I live in Maale Adummim, and I don't live there anymore.
Most of all if they had simply asked my permission I could have given them a way better article that does correctly represent me and my stance about Israel's existance in the Middle East. So if the owners of Israel News sees this post, I again ask you respectfully to please take down the article including its title.

gosh - they used supposed details about you too? That's not cool! Did you let them know directly that you didn't appreciate it?

Yeah, and they took down the article but kept the title. Then they put the article back up and their site doesn't allow comments. I left a comment originally about it and they tried to put up a comment like I have some kind of problem.
