As the only only person in history who has suffered the agonizing embarrassment of being stripped of the King’s Medal of Merit, it might not be that strange that he is trying to smooth over this major setback by dreaming up all sorts of fancy scenarios, however removed from reality they might be.
Now, he is using his website to claim that Israel is no democracy:
No democracy in Israel
By Trond Ali Linstad – 20/01/2013
Klassekampen really needs to shape up! The newspaper dedicates a on January 18 a full page to analyze the situation in Israel before the election. But the headline is worrying:” A democracy under pressure,” it states! Is it Israel’s” Democrat” they are talking about?
There is no democracy in Israel – just as there was no democracy in the former white South Africa. There is a democracy for one section of the population, the one section the state has defined as it exists for. And there is discrimination of the second part of the population, which according to the constitution becomes second class. This is how Israel an apartheid state like South Africa was. No one should tamper with this, if you want to understand what is happening in the region.
Israel is a sectarian state and Zionism – the political foundation of Israel – is an aggressive and nationalistic ideology, rooted only in one population group. And with the exclusion of the other. Democracy in Israel? No, not for the people – as a whole – who lives there. Make no mistake about it.

Oh dear! Where to start? First of all, Mr Linstad, coining newspeak (“democrat”) is not your forte, it is hard enough to keep track of your ramblings as it is, and you are not making it any easier by introducing your nonsensical expressions. What on earth are you trying to say?
So to your impressive collection of lies and misrepresentations injected into the less than 300 words of your article. Chapeau! But you still stink to high heaven. Luckily, checking facts is also not your forte, so it makes it easier than pissing off an Islamic extremist to refute all of your lies.
Constitution? What constitution? Israel, like many other countries, famously among them, the UK, does not have a constitution, rather it has a Basic Law. If your reading comprehension skills were on par with what would hope one could expect from a medic (aint taking no chances, not taking prescription medicine from you, doubt you could manage to calculate correct doses if this writing is anything to judge by) – then no doubt you would have been able to understand sections 2 and 3 of the Nationality Law, where your blatant lies are refuted.
Apartheid? You may want to consult the Israeli ambassador on that matter, he is not a Jew but a Druze. In case this is not enough, you could also ask Haneen Zoabi, that failed politician who is unlikely to get very many votes from her constituents in tomorrows election, she has simply gone too far for the tastes of the Israeli Arabs, who now are more likely to put their faith in the moderate Da’am Workers Party (whose female leader incidentally also is an Israeli Arab). You should also consult with victims of the real apartheid before you write such nonsense, they have on more than one occasion refuted the claim that Israel is an apartheid state, calling it an affront to the real suffering they endured.
And what is that odious remark that anybody who wants to understand what happens in the ME region, need to not tamper with how Israel is an apartheid state (your choice of words renders this essentially clear as mud?). Are you suggesting that the civil war in Syria somehow is related to Israel? That the demise of Egypt is in any way related to Israel? You just proved (once more) that you are totally unfit to receive any honors of significance, and that Mickey Mouse outfit from Naturei Karta – with some Jewish Medal of honor. FYI, the Naturei Karta do not represent any stream of Judaism, not orthodox, not liberal, not anybody, so not really something to brag about.
But then again, for you, any gloss over might serve now that your pants have fallen down around your ankles – once more.
Ah, and another FYI note – the hugely much more credible organization, the Freedom House recently released their annual report on freedom, which simply stated that Israel is the ME’s only free democracy. Its a tough one to call, who shall we believe more? The Freedom House or Trond Ali Linstad?
You hateful little gnat!
