Ladies and gentleman the ‘CST Report’ mobile application is ready to launch. The first ‘Jew only’ mobile application designed to comfort Jews, their anxiety and their very special security needs.
The London Jewish Chronicle reported today that the ‘Community Security Trust’ (CST) has launched a system to help members of the Jewish community, report ‘anti-Semitic’ incidents direct from their mobile phones.
CST Report is like an “app” for smart-phones. It can be used on any mobile, which has internet access. It is very much like “Angry Birds” yet it is designed to deter the angry Goyim.
It allows its Jewish users to register where and when an incident took place: the nature of it, a description of what happened and their details. Because CST Report is designed specifically for mobile use, it allows those who have witnessed an incident to upload a video or pictures from the phone direct to the CST command bunker in Golders Green. I think that this is a refreshing development. It would clearly disable the potential deniers of any future Shoa. With the CST Report at hand, Jews will be able to provide the CST control room with instantaneous reports from the crime scene.
However, I am puzzled by some of the technological aspects to do with this incredible invention. I am, for instance, a Jew by origin, yet I oscillate constantly between being an ‘Ex-Jew’ and a ‘proud self hating Jew’. In those unique moments of self-loathing, as I am embarking onto some universal ethical realisations, should I hit the panic button and report myself to the CST cyber command? Also, being Jewish by origin, and being subject to constant orchestrated Jewish hate campaigns partially organised by the CST, am I entitled for support of the CST?
Apparently Sheikh Raed Salah was arrested here in the UK in June following a ‘tip off’ that was originated at the CST. Considering Sheikh Salah being far more ‘Semitic’ than the vast majority of British Jewry, could he benefit from such an application installed on his iPhone.
Finally, a suggestion, I honestly think that CST Report is a bit of a cold and boring name for such an innovative technology. I honestly believe that iVey, would appeal to a much wider audience among the upbeat Jewish community.

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.
Atzmon’s album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year, he has been called “surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz.” His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a “devoted political artist.” He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as “one of London’s finest saxophonists” stated: “It is Atzmon’s blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read.”
