Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours. I wrote this article myself, and it expresses my own opinions. I am not receiving compensation for it (other than from ShareProphets). I have no business relationship with any company whose stock is mentioned in this article.
No! We are attacking a company whose CEO Amit Ben Haim happens to be Jewish because that company has committed securities fraud and lied to its investors. This is a pathetic play the men - because apparently we are all anti-semites here even our writers who happen to be Jewish themselves - not the ball technique. My own writings on matters relating to both anti semitism and the state of Israel should leave you in no doubt where I stand. One of my favourite videos of recent years was recorded in Berlin and is HERE. Another article which moved me greatly was when I visited the synagogue in Corfu. This has a personal link for me.
My daughter's godfather Joe was inside his mother's womb when his parents fled Corfu a few weeks before the Germans took over from the Italians. Joe was thus born in Egypt, moved to Israel and fought in its army before ending up in London. I'm proud of my friend Joe. Had his parents not fled they would have been among the 1793 Corfiot Jews who were shipped en masse via Patras to Auschwitz. 121 returned. I wrote about visiting the synagogue where Joe's parents and their parents were married, here.
Whatever one's stance on Jewish issues, and as someone who celebrates Holocaust Memorial Day each year mine is in little doubt, it is naive to pretend that all Jews are honest. Jews are like any other race. Most are good honest folks but there are a few wronguns. It does nothing to fight the evil of anti-semitism to pretend all Jews are saints and to overlook the sins of those who are not. Cloudtag morons need to stop playing the man and start playing the ball. Has the company lied to them? Yes it has as I show HERE.
Right now we are at the phase where folks start to realise they are going to lose money rather than cash in a golden ticket and so they lash out at the bears with this sort of shite. It is always the way. Look at the reaction to exposes we have run on cons including Gulf Keystone, Quindell, Globo, InternetQ, blinkx, Sefton, Vialogy, Outsourcery, Feonic, Pacific Tycoon, Naibu, China Chaintek, Camkids, Petroceltic, Pressfit, Xcite Energy, Afren, Environmental Recycling, Cupid, Advanced Oncotherapy, Igas & Equities First, Iofina and the list goes on and on.
I saw on one BB yesterday a chap saying I always got its wrong and wheeled out two duff tips of mine - Po Na Na and SFI. Those were disasters from a decade and a half ago. But clearly if I say Cloudtag (CTAG) is a duff stock this was evidence I know nothing. Forget the list above, from the past four years.
If we call a stock a wrong 'un it is. In the end the anger will be directed at those who are really responsible - management. And in the very end the better investors accept some personal responsibility themselves for ignoring red flags and next time they will be less daft. But pro tem it is we bears who are getting it in the neck. If folks think it will stop this website from exposing fraud, they can think again.
