Best day of my life: Making it into the Jewish S.H.I.T List

This is a big day for me.

Bigger than my wedding day, bigger than the days my kids were born.

From today onwards, my life will be divided in two: my normal life until now, and the rest of my life after making it into the Jewish S.H.I.T List! (click for larger image)

Yeah baby! You got that right! I am now an official Self Hating and/or Israel Threatening Jew!

I’ve been working so hard for this; it’s been a long time coming.

And I’ve been checking this site for years – where people much less deserving than me have been accepted into the ranks for merely being liberal Zionists!

I’ve lashed out at settlers! But nothing.

I’ve criticized every politician from the Labor rightwards! But nothing.

I’ve even voiced support for the one-state outcome! But nothing.

I have a feeling it must have been my recent usage of the “A” word that pushed over the editors and finally got me in.

Let this be a lesson to all of you out there: He who sows in tears shall reap in joy!

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

    1. ‘He refers to the brave Jews living in Judea-Samaria as “wacky settlers”‘

    2. Well, what do you know? I made it onto this list as well, which I did not know existed.

      Wow. Never knew this existed. This is both funny and scary at the same time. Any idea who’s “brain” behind this list?

        If I had to guess, this looks like the “work” of Baruch Marzel & Co. So, Ami, Congrats on making the list!

        By the way, isn’t it time we had an alternative list of all the dregs running around the West Bank? Not sure what we would call it (the Jewish P.O.O.P. list?), but could be useful to aid in international capture and arrest of Jewish terrorists.

      It’s been a long time coming! Congratulations! It’s too bad they didn’t call you “an ass-kicking dyke” who has “fingered” Israel. Keep working. You’ll get there.

      Welcome to the club! SHIT-list membership is be worn as a badge of honour by those who stand up and speak out for justice and equality for ALL regardless of race or religion.

      I didn’t think it was hateful enough a description of you. Are the slacking due to a possibly increased number of new SHIT lust members? You need to work harder Ami!

    7. “Wacky” is indeed over the top. I can see why they have proscibed you.

      Strange how none of the usual contributors from the rabid right have not signed in to offer their endorsements.

      But hearty congratulations from me anyway. I am soooooo envious.

      Not that I’ve heard of the list before, but any achievement is a achievement.

    10. I don’t think this is only a joking matter. The S.H.I.T. list may not have much political clouhgt behind it, but similar groups such as Campus Watch can be quite intimidating, especially for non-tenured faculty.

      Mazel Tov, I’ve never been sure why I am not on the list, you’d think that publicly condemning JNF, supporting settlement boycott and continually attacking Bibi would get me on:)

      Mazel tov and welcome to the club! Keep up the good work ( although once on the SHIT list, always on the SHIT list).

      Can I state the irony of a site of supposed anti-Semites describing someone as part of a “cabal”?

      Congrats. You know you’re doing good work when people like that dislike you.

      What….they couldn’t put up your pic and link your email?

      “Best day of my life”.
      If this is the best day of your life, it does not say much about your desires and expectations in life [haha].
      To be included in some list, whether good or bad, crackpot or legitimate, seems to suggest a desire and need to be recognized at any cost.
      If that’s what you strive and desire for, and rate as a “great achievement”, go for it.

        it’s really sad that you spend your time doing this kind of limp, passive-aggressive trolling. It seems to suggest a desire and need to be recognized at any cost.

      “Bigger than my wedding day, bigger than the days my kids were born”

      I am sad for your wife and kids. What did they do to deserve someone like you?

          Is that what it is? Humor? Irony? Uh, ok.

          But it seems that the “moron”, “fascist”, “evil” “racist” “hasbarist” Zionists were not the only ones who took you at your word. Maybe the “Progressives” too lack a sense of humor?

          • Not following anymore, actually. But, as long as you’re pissed off – I’m happy!!

        Always with the personal dig do you really think his wife or child resent his remarks. His wife and child know that this wonderful man in their lives cares and stands up to be counted in the struggle for the rights of all Isreali citizens.

    18. Hi

      Anyone read Ami Kaufman on Twitter? Literally 100 percent of his comments are anti-Israel comments. None are pro-Israel. None are anti-Palestinian. None are against anti-semitism. None are against Islamic extremists. Ami Kaufman literally only speaks in order to insult Israel. Or else he does not speak.

      And somehow he doesn’t see anything wrong with this.

        Ami is pro-justice. It’s called being a moral person and not some bigoted monster. You should try it sometime.

          Define justice!

          It seems that in these parts of the woods, justice means that Palestinians dictate terms and Israel has to do what it is told.

          That is not justice. That is polemics, propaganda and bias.

      Just looked over this list which is remarkably short…Only mainly Americans and Israelis. The makers of this list overlooked that there are lots and lots of other Jews myself included who fit their petty insane and Jew-hating (ahavat Yisrael, sinat chinam, thrown out 2000 years ago for lack of respect for the other Jew? Anyone? Hello!) list. Is this a hit list? Or do we get price tagged? If anything it also is another averah: motsi shem ra. Very severe! Jewish? Nah…Mar Kaufman: mazaltov is you so wish, but that Israel is an Apartheid state and there are many many comparisons that match so no need for tiresome discussions here, is even known to a.o. Olmert and Barak and Livni all responsible for war crimes against the Palestinians. Do I get to be on the list too or do I have to be famous for that? Sigh….Darn…..

      I am a proud member of the S.H.I.T. List! We are way overdue for a reunion.

      Ami welcome to our “organization”. When we get together I will teach you our special handshake.

      Any person or group with a shit list is literally “not listening”.

      I’m on a few, disciplined by right-wing idiot winds, and left-wing.
