HPW User Profile: TheRockBarkat

For those of you who read the Huffington Post you knew that this profile was going to come up eventually. As talkbackers go, TheRockBarkat is not the most anti-Semitic poster that we have seen, nor is even close to it. Instead he takes the usual anti-Zionist route of attacking Israel shrilly and strongly, but occasionally slips up and posts something anti-Semitic or (more likely) racist against Israelis, and Israelis alone.

Even though he has only been active since November 2010 (so less than a month) he has already racked up more than 1500 comments, almost all of which are bashing Israel or Jews and defending their enemies. Before we get to the comments I wanted to demonstrate his offensive "Anne Frank keffiyeh" avatar, a rather cynical attempt to use Holocaust memory to attack the living Jews of today:

Now on to the comments. As you will see they are mostly racism against Israel/Jews and personal attacks on other users. Also notable is spamming blatant lies about Israel and not a single link to back it up. I didn't look through all the comments due to time constraints so it is possible that I missed some. I'll start with some highlights before the cut:

Link
You are an Israeli dhimmi. If Americans are to believe you we are truly in trouble” 


Link
“You are so full of **** its pitiful. Typical Israeli”      

Link       
exactly why the Jewish/Israel lobby is working tirelessly to demonize them. It is in our interests to listen to their side of the Middle East story and not just hear the one sided story as told by the Israelis of Israel and the Jews of the USA.
Do you not think that the Jewish lobby is being used to hurt others?
This is the USA and being fair used to be one of our tenets” 

Link
“Israel/Isr­aelis/Jews and Druze as their helpers are the only destroyers. Destroyers of lives, of livelihoods, of personal property and of infrastructure. You have abused the Palestinian people since the arrival of the western Zionists and disturbed the peace in the entire region as well as all over the globe. Thats something you can be proud of.”    
Link
“You guys in Israel are the paranoid ones.”     

"You hate when your country is exposed and its racism laid out to the world.
Not everyone is like you willing to lie and hide. Some people want it to change. You want it as-is until you can push all the arabs out. "

Link
“You are still dazed and confused as per the norm. Your ramblings make absolutely no sense in your defense of the lawless nation of Israel.”

Link
“Yeah is that why Israel begs the USA to hit Iran constantly?
Its like the good Rabbi Ovadia says..Goyi­m are the servants.”

Link
“Israel needs their enemies to be helplessly defenseless for them to fight. All through the US cables were references to the whiney Israelis about QME (Qualitati­ve Military Edge) They are used to helpless Palestinia­n rock throwing kids and molesting little kids to gain confession­s of rock throwing under duress. How do we support degenerate­s like this?”                            
Link       
“Their cowardly leaders not their peoples. The cowardly paranoid leaders and people of Israel as a whole feeding the entire frenzy.”                                        
Link       
“We already know what Israel thinks about blacks..th­ey beat them to a pulp in the airport..e­ven Jewish converts and now building concentrat­ion camps for those poor Darfurians that hasbarists like to use as an example of their caring for humanity. LMAO Jokester.”

Link
“Yeah god forbid we have another Israel. I agree. One is just too many right now.”        

Link           
“Yeah the same can be said for settlers in Sderot who purposeful
­ly place Childrens day care centers right within range of Hamas weapons for the sake of PR. What kind of people willfully put children in the direct line of fire? The Gazans have no choice their land is limited whereas settlers have tons of space inside of Israeli borders that are not reachable by Hamas weapons. Your dishonesty is atrocious.”   

Link
“Yeah this is more ways to excuse Israeli atrocities. Their bloodlust is showing.”[One of many posts trying to defend Iran and Hezbollah, even when they are caught red handed.]

Link
“Yeah nice try Israel firster”                                                                            
Link
“Yes and dont forget the Jews chasing out Christians and Muslims from their country...Two archaic religions. Really dumb”

Link
“Yeah I wonder how many people are executed in Israel and the world doesnt know about it..both Christians and Muslims by Jewish fanatics” [Click for context.]

Link
“You invented terrorism, assassination and espionage is your specialty with a side order of land theft. Something you can be proud of.”                                

Link
“The majority of Israelis are from Russia, Germany and Brooklyn.they have their own countries..what about it?”    

Link
“You are the only one thats Lying 100%. You are the one that has the duty to run around the internet defending Israels de-legitimizing itself.”                            

Link
“”You should stop spewing lies intended to deceive people.”    

Link
“The Israelis are masters at deception.”   

Link
“Funny how Jews flip out all over the world when even one Jewish cemetery anywhere in the world is just vandalized. I guess you are special.”

Link

Link
“The Pedophiles need their pedophila”

Link                               
“They had plenty of time to study the South Africans heavily. They refined the methods of their former good buddies the Afrikaners”                                    

Link
““Why wouldnt a low-life Israeli hire another low-life Israeli like that?”

Link
“You would know about slanderous lies like you also know about the state of denial”        

Link                                                    “

“Silly megaphonies tricks are for kids.”                                

Link
““I sleep fine. Im not a baby killer or a soldier that uses 9 yr old kids as human shields or a soldier that forces confessions out of kids by molesting or raping them. Thanks though Ill leave it to you. Have a ball.”        

Link
“This has been done for years Dwane you just ignored the UN resulotions that complained about this very kind of thing and listened to the hasbarats or maybe you ignored it because they were arabs. Take off those rose colored ziodhimmi glasses”

Link
““Yeah beloved president. You hate arabs. Who are you trying to kid.
Megaphone alert today?”

Link                                       
“The same place the supporters of the Murderous Israelis would be isnt that Amazing!”    

Link
“Tell your golden calf to stay out of their neighbors business and learn to make friends. That would be their best thing to do and not worry about how their neighbors defend themselves..”    

Link
““You should talk with your Rabbis Ovadia and Shapiro running around. Im surprised you even have the nerve to open your mouth.”

Link
““What branch do you work for? Israeli foreign ministry or the IDF or are you just here on the Megaphone crew? Pays good?”

“Your people make movies glorifying your "justice" aka revenge ie: MUNICH”  [Steven Spielberg, the Mossad, and a pro-Israel poster are all “your people,” aka Jews.]

Link
“The both of you are Israeli propagandists. That my friend is a very dishonorable business you are in especially if you are under the employ of your government. It is people like you posting obvious and provable fallacies that show to the world your countries illegitimacy. If you cant tell a story without using half truths, bogus smears , obviously slanted websites then you know what you are doing is wrong.”                               

Link
““Israel was a man made object, Your golden calf that God said you should have no idols before you. He also said thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal and thou shalt not covet thy neighbors property.”

Link
“How long have has barists been denying claims of Human Shields by the IDF? This is not the first time this has been done. These cowards have been doing this for decades. The Palestinians have complained about it to the UN many times before. These are the things these ziofascists complain about the UN always picking on Israel for. Poor little victims. These guys should be at the Hague and not an Israeli court getting their wrists slapped”

Link
“If 27,000 spirits o the dead visitied you , you would still deny it. Thats how hasbarists work. They deny everything for the sake of their homeland. When a photographer doctored a picture for effect it absolved you all of your heinous crimes against humanity. Its the only way you will be able to sleep.”       

Link 

“I dont know if you noticed or not Goldman but your people were spread to the wind for over 2000 years. Its only been 60 since you had your state and already so much trouble has arisen from it. I seriously dont hope you think God is approving of all this. The only reason you were successful so far is money, weapons and aid. You will never be able to subjugate those people.”    

Link
““Well that explains a lot. Why dont you tell us how many Palestinians you have abused personally. You are too much of a coward to admit it anyway. Youve shown your hatred of arabs quite often. You are definitely the sort that would smack around an old Palestinian dude as many of your compadres have.”    

Link
“Israel hates the Palestinians as well as their own children. They lie for a piece of land and thats pretty sick. Stop teaching Jewish children to hate and teach them that stealing is wrong.”

Link
“Tony why do you bother posting this for this thing? Do you think it cares? It already knows what goes on in the terriitory. It is just here to bait and to spread propaganda. I offer this thing no proof of anything whatsoever when it asks for it. Save your proof for people with an open mind or that dont know what goes on.”

Link
“This dude is the worst propagandist going. Im glad he continues. I think people like him do more for the Palestinian cause than anything.”    

Link
“Im glad that you finally admit that you are professional victims. I dont need to prove whats already been proven to a couple of propagandists . Go disprove it.”    

Link
“Surely you dont think a Propaganadist and cheerleader like you validates me?”

Link
“Tick tock tick tock when we cut you off lets see how arrogant you are then.”    

Link
“Because you are too busy spreading false and misleading Israeli propaganda thats why”

Link
“IDF rape and molest or threaten to molest little boys and girls. They are worse because they need people like you to go around to websites defending them with utter BS to make their delegitimization legitimate. You are doing a bangup job! Keep up the good work.”        

Link
“What posted facts do you or your propagandist buddies post? Nada, nothing, zilch, zero. Your only goal is to negate the Palestinians as humans and as a people.”                

Link
“You madam are the only failure in your assessments of anything Israeli. You are merely a cheerleader”            

Link
“Theres your problem right there in a nutshell you believe that Jews are more deserving of justice than non-jews. It doesnt work like that. Perhaps in the mind of a Jewish person it may but to the rest of us it does not.”

Link
“The Israelis are great strategists...they waited 2000 years and for them this is all plotted and planned. They have Master plans for every inch of Israel. You think that the Irgun and Hagana just disappeare­d? They were incorporat­ed into the IDF.
It wouldnt surprise me if they had plans for their dreams of "from the Nile to the Euphrates"­.”    

Link
They rob each other!!!!!­! Why would they treat arabs better!This is DISGUSTING
17 arrested for stealing $42.5 million meant for Holocaust survivors [link]”

Link
“I am sorry bu i cant love a nation that was brutalized throughout history and then turns around and oppresses another and then lies about it constantly­. I have no respect for liars or thieves”

Link
“Ive said it before and Ill say it again. They want nothing more than to kill them off slowly since they cant trasfer them out without it being obvious. They waited 2000 yrs and they can wait another 50-200yrs as people die off or leave little by little one-two-th­ree persons a day. They also in intervals do operations such as Caste Lead to kill over by the hundreds or thousands to speed things up and not make it appear as obvious.”                                                

Link

Link           
“They will never forget and I hope anyone that did them wrong is brought to justice just as the Jews have received theirs from their cruel and inhumane murderers.”  [Occupation = genocide.]

Link
“Your arrogance and racism just pushes people towards your "so-called
­" Palestinia­ns even moreso.
A people that were supposedly persecuted persecutin­g another people? I dont think so. You were never persecuted for if you were you would have more humanity than what you dont have now.”                  
Link           
“Can I ask you why you'd even go through all the trouble to gather all that info and post it for the sake of someone that will never ever change their opinion? They are only here for one reason and thats the defense of Israels image first and foremost. Never waste your time with hasbarists­..waste it on people that want to learn about it and that have open minds.”

Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
