WND Finally Refers to Aaron Klein Source as “Extremist”

…but it’s probably just an oversight

WorldNetDaily reports on today’s announcement that Michael Savage is now banned from the UK:

Talk radio host Michael Savage is considering legal action against Britain’s top homeland security official after she released today a list grouping him with terrorists and neo-Nazi murderers banned from entry because the government believes their views might provoke violence.

…The others on the list are Jewish extremist Mike Guzovsky…

Guzovsky’s name has appeared on WorldNetDaily previously, in a 2004 article by Aaron Klein which suggested the extremist label was unfair; subsequent puff-pieces by Klein have preferred to use his Israeli name, Yekutel Ben Yaacov. Today’s article (not by Klein) is the first WND piece to describe Guzovsky as an “extremist”. Doubtless Klein – recent author of The Late Great State of Israel: How Enemies Within and Without Threaten the Jewish Nation’s Survival – will explain it all to us in due course.

As a result of today’s announcement, I’ve received a bump in hits to my 2006 piece on Klein and Guzovsky; this can be seen here, and a more developed piece by Terry Krepel here.

Variants of Guzovsky’s names in English include: Yekutel Ben Yaacov; Yekutiel Ben Yacov; Yekutiel Ben Yaacov; Mike Guzofsky; Yekutiel Ben Yaacov; Yekutiel Ben Yaakov; Yekutiel Ben Ya’acov; Yekutiel Ben Ya’akov; Yekutiel Ben Yakov; Yekutiel Ben Yacov; Yekutiel Guzofsky; Yekutiel Guzovsky; Mike Guzofsky; Mike Guzovsky; Michael Guzofsky. One website calls him “Mike Rosowski”; this is an error. A New Yorker article also clarifies that Ya’akov is Guzofsky.

Mosquewatch Agonistes

Oh dear – a British “psychedelic rock” musician named Joe Chapman (of “Spiral 25”, apparently) had better watch out:

mississippimud2007 said…Tell that bum joe chapman i’m after him and will destroy him. He’s pissed off the wrong American. I want the bastard on video if he has the testicles to do so. If the bastard wants war with me, he gets it. I don’t back down.

“Mississippimud2007” has featured on this blog previously; he is Jeff Davis, an American accountant who considers himself to be some kind of “counter-jihad” warrior. A few months ago he took aim at me for dissing Walid Shoebat and Pastor J. Grant Swank; the Swanksta’s sermons are reposted on Davis’s Mosquewatch website along with contributions from Shoebat’s son and others. He also uses the pseudonym “AmericanBNP”, expressing his support for the anti-Muslim views of the British far-right.

Davis’s wrath has been provoked by Mosquewatch‘s inclusion on a list of far-right websites on Chapman’s own site which have been labelled thus:

Fascist/Nazi/White Nationalist/”Patriot” web sites:
WARNING! – Most of these web sites contain some extremely offensive, racist or just plain nasty language and views. I recommend taking a long bath after visiting them because they tend to leave anyone who has the most basic of human qualities feeling dirty and not in a good way!

Davis complains:

British psychedelic rock musician, Joe Chapman on his site puts my site in with storm front ( A white racist group ) I’m not pleased. Joe Chapman, stand up and show me your face.

A short video follows, in which he denies having any racial prejudice (he “hates” Stormfront) and – as ever – he challenges his opponent to continue the argument by making a video himself; failure to do so will of course be an admission that Davis has won!
