This reporter has now become a proud member of the banned voices who have dared speak out for equal human rights for Palestinians and the truth about the injustices committed by the state of Israel on the supposedly progressive free speech sites known as the Daily Kos and the Democratic Underground.

This week I was banned from the Democratic Underground, which smells just like the censoring I received from the Daily Kos and reported about on my June 7th Blog: "It Sure Smells Like a Right Wing Zionist Cabal at The Daily Kos "

Although locked out of my own blog on the DK, the attacks and conversation about me continued:

"Her advertising and crossposting on a hate site were simply irrelevant and could not possibly have factored into her departure in any way. If you think otherwise, you're a victim of Zionist mind control, just like the DKos editors. And it wasn't even really a decision the DKos editors agreed with; they were simply cowed into banning Eileen by a well-organized campaign of email harrassment that was most likely promulgated through GIYUS [ED Note: GIYUS/ Give Israel Your United Support, is a project of the World Union of Jewish Students] and I'll bet there were thousands of emails from Tel-Aviv pretending to be from Poughkeepsie…No other possible explanation could possibly be possible, especially the plain and simply one given. She is clearly another victim of the Infantophagy Lobby…Remember when someone was hopping up and down about how this controversy is really all a put-on by Thuh Zionist Thought Police, and that we secretly didn't give a damn about the hate site, just about trying to silence Eileen's daring an controversial… by zemblan on Mon Jun 04, 2007 at 11:26:13 AM PDT [click here ]

The 24 hours from June 3rd at 4 AM until June 4th, proved that visits from Israel increased so greatly, that Israel went from 17th place into 5th place out of the total countries who had visited my site during that time period.

This week I posted two previously published articles on the Democratic Underground's Israel Palestine forum and both were locked down within the first 24 hours with this inane message from Lithos, DU Moderator, "Personal blogs without distinct gravitas concerning I/P are not considered acceptable sources."

I responded with an email ALERT to Lithos, but never received a reply. When I attempted to post a new article on October 23, 2007, I received the message:

Your posting privileges have been revoked… We read all correspondence sent to us. If you do not get a response to your appeal, it is because your request was denied.

What follows is my first email to Lithos on October 22, that has never received a reply:

"GRAVITAS" you say,

My article "FREE RADICALS" most certainly has dignity and propriety and is in good taste: for it contains THE TRUTH.

This article has been published by legit web sites and cross posted all over the web!

Here's just a few:
