Reinstate Ken Livingstone to the Labour Party

April 30, 2016
reinstate Ken Livingstone

reinstate Ken Livingstone

Suspension of Ken Livingstone from the Labour Party is a dark day for Labour and the very act of his suspension has brought the Labour Party into disrepute.

Ken Livingstone has been suspended from the Labour Party in what has all the hallmarks of a McCarthy-style witch hunt.

Let us step back a couple of days.

John Mann MP, a loud-mouth bully, accosts Ken Livingstone on the street and hurls a torrent of abuse. John Mann just happens to have a TV crew in tow.

Set up comes to mind.

We have been here before.

Some months ago, a politician resigned live on TV. Spontaneous? Er, no. The whole affair had been orchestrated by a TV producer.

We had a witch hunt against an advisor to Jeremy Corbyn.

Later in the day on Wato, BBC Radio 4 lunchtime news, Ken Livingstone was subjected to an appalling interview, even by the piss-poor standards of the BBC. This was followed by an interview with a critic of Ken Livingstone. So much for BBC balance and impartiality.

We then had Labour London Mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan jump on the bandwagon and smear Ken Livingstone. If nothing else demonstrating Khan to be unfit to be London Mayor.

BBC Any Questions on Friday evening, a Labour panellist and member of Labour NEC describing comments from Ken Livingstone as vile and obnoxious. Same panellist saying he could not prejudge the issue as he was a member of the NEC who would decide whether or not Ken Livingstone be kicked out of the party. Er, he had already prejudged.

Fair hearing or kangaroo court?

Claire Fox another panellist. BBC once again scraping the bottom of the barrel. It is bad enough listening to her drivel on Moral Maze. She claimed she had once been on a rally and had actually heard with her own ears, someone shout abuse against Jews. What abuse, she did not say. Relevance? Absolutely none.

For good measure, Claire Fox added there should be no boycott of Israel.

The other panellists had obviously done their homework, researchers on overtime, to dig dirt on Ken Livingstone.

So what is this heinous crime Ken Livingstone is guilty of?

He has stated Zionists worked with Hitler to ship Jews to Palestine.

No one has actually said, not true, not a historical fact.

Haavara Agreement: Hitler worked with Zionists to ship Jews to Palestine, to occupy land that was not theirs.

In the event, Hitler decided the Final Solution was a more expedient way of ridding Germany of Jews.

Israel was founded on terrorism. British solders were massacred at the King David Hotel. The atrocities used by Zionists to seize Palestinian land were not dissimilar to that used by ISIS.

Anyone who dare criticise Israel is subject to a knee-jerk reaction ftom the Jewish lobby.

Since taking office, Jeremy Corbyn has been subjected to months of attacks by Blairites. The BBC and mass media only too willing to grant them a soapbox.

If anyone should be kicked out of the Labour Party it is war criminal Tony Blair, whose hands are dripping with the blood of innocent people.

Israel is running scared of Jeremy Corbyn.

The BDS boycott of Israel is starting to hurt.

Today,  Ken Livingstone is being attacked for having the audacity to defend himself.

Please sign the petition calling for immediate reinstatement of Ken Livingstone to the Labour Party.

It is John Mann who should be suspended and kicked out for bringing the Labour Party into disrepute, not Ken Livingstone.

Please sign the petition calling for suspension of John Mann.

It is time ordinary members started to deselect Members of  Parliament such as Mann et al, as they are unfit to represent ordinary people.

Gaza flooded

November 30, 2014

As if Gaza had not suffered enough with the destruction by Israel, now facing flooding following two days of heavy rain.

UN has declared a State of Emergency.

Three months on from destruction by Israel, reconstruction has still not begun.

An estimated 100,000 Palestinians remain homeless in Gaza three months after Israel ended its offensive on the Gaza strip.

There are still those who do not believe Climate Change exists.

Orthodox Jews oppose Zionism

August 25, 2014

On the face of it, one would expect Orthodox Jews to support the Zionist State of Israel, but a moment’s reflection see why not. One is about a religion, the other real estate, God reduced to an estate agent.

Orthodox Jews oppose the State of Israel, oppose Zionism and oppose the IDF.

Gazonto

August 25, 2014

The horror of the Israeli destruction of Gaza, relocated to Toronto.

The closest we have in London, is the Blitz.

And still there are Zionist apologists for Israel who try to portray Israel as the victim.

And it will not end until Israel withdraws to its pre-1997 borders, stops occupying Palestinian land, removes the blockade of Gaza, releases all Palestinians detained, stops beating Palestinians, stops destroying their crops.

This Land is Mine

August 17, 2014

Wonderful animation from talented graphic artist and animator Nina Paley that exposes the Zionist lie that God was an estate agent who handed Palestine to the Jews as His Chosen People.

Nina Paley uses a Zionist song as the background to her animation.

If the Jews can lay claim to Palestine, then so too can the Assyrians, Babylonians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Turks and the British.

In the chaos in the aftermath of World War Two, European Jews practising terror and ethnic cleansing seized Palestine. Prior to then, Jews, Christians and Arabs lived together in harmony.

The ultimate victor to lay claim to Palestine will be the Angel of Death.

We demand that International Criminal Court charges Benjamin Netanyahu and Israel for War Crimes against Humanity

July 31, 2014

An open letter to Song Sang-Hyun, President of International Criminal Court.

Israel war crimes

Israel war crimes

We the citizens of the world demand that Benjamin Netanyahu as person and Israel as the apartheid state is put on trial along with all the evidences that prove it to be a country responsible for terrible war crimes against humanity and people of Palestine in general.

Why should Israel be put on trial?

1. At the time of writing this, Benjamin Netanyahu is responsible for killing over 1000 civilians. Many of those are children, women and people with absolutely no affiliation with any group of any sort. They have been wiped off the map as if they were totally insignificant people with no right to live.

2. Israel has been bombing public places, schools, family homes, religious places and has sunk to the lowest level and recently attacked children hospitals.

3. They used White Phosphorus in 2009 and have used it again in 2014. They air-burst white phosphorus in 155mm artillery shells in and near populated areas. Each air-burst shell spreads 116 burning white phosphorus wedges in a radius extending up to 125 meters from the blast point. White phosphorus ignites and burns on contact with oxygen, and continues burning at up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit (816 degrees Celsius) until nothing is left or the oxygen supply is cut. When white phosphorus comes into contact with skin it creates intense and persistent burns.

4. The establishment of settlements by an occupying power in occupied territory violates international humanitarian law which is the body of law governing situations of armed conflict and military occupation. Yet Israel is expanding it’s settlements and will obviously take over the Gaza area as no Palestinian will come back since they have no place to call home.

5. Israel’s apartheid setup where they have check-posts, blockades, and have taken every right from the Palestinians so they can’t even breath without having an Israeli soldier on their back. This has to stop and it’s nothing less than being a perfect definition of an apartheid settler state.

We demand that Israel is put on trial for war-crimes and Benjamin Netanyahu is held responsible for the deaths of all innocent people of Palestine along with being the reason for thousands of families being destroyed mentally and physically to the extent that they will never recover again.

Mr. President, if you are unable to do this based on other evidence that you can get from Human Rights Watch, UN, journalists, and doctors in Gaza, I feel you are letting down billions of people worldwide by letting a criminal get away with it.


Those who have seen the suffering of the people of Gaza, the atrocities committed by Israel under the guise of self-defence, have been shocked and appalled. If you count yourself as one of this number, then please sign this open letter to the President of International Criminal Court.

The US has condemned Israel for its atrocities, but at the same time, is re-supplying Israel with munitions to enable the slaughter and devastation to continue.

Amnesty International has called for a halt to arms supplies to Israel. Please sign their petition.

The US is pouring $3 billion dollars of military aid into Israel every year.

There is much individuals can do. Support the international boycott of all Israeli goods.

BBC coverage, has to say the least, been disgraceful. Please sign the petition to the BBC Trust calling for a debate on the BBC biassed coverage.

Apologists for Israel sink to new lows with the demand for an apology from UNRWA.

But probably none sinks as low as Melanie Phillips or Fox TV (part of the Evil Murdoch Empire) or Israelis chanting “There’s no school in Gaza, there are no more kids left”. The video concludes with the crowd chanting “Gaza is a cemetery”

Nightly entertainment for Israelis, is to sit on the hills overlooking Gaza and cheer the slaughter.

Gangs of marauding Israelis have been setting upon Arabs and beating them.

In the West, there has been a small rise in anti-Semitism. The Jews have the solution in their own hands. Stop supporting Israel, speak out against the atrocities committed by the Israelis. Exactly the same advice given to Muslims, speak out against the Islamists.

When Jews have joined anti-Israel protests, they have been made welcome.

When on one protest a Zionist attacked a Jew for protesting against Israel, he informed her he had survived a concentration camp. Her response was to tell him he should have died there.

Back-bench Tory MPs have called for a change in policy in the way the UK deals with Israel.

The State of Israel was founded by terrorists, on land belonging to Palestinians. They would attack villages, massacre everyone, to spread fear and cause people to flee their homes. Their intention was to divide the British Mandate between themselves and Jordan, to eliminate the Palestinians. The slaughter, the terrorism, the ethnic cleansing, the genocide, continues.

It was, as always the case, Israel that started the current conflict. When three Israelis were killed, Israel targeted Hamas, Hamas responded with rocket fire.

Gaza is an open air prison, access controlled by Israel, the people kept at starvation level.

A 72-hour ceasefire, starting 8am local time, has been announced by the UN.

Israeli Defence Force should receive the Nobel Peace Prize

July 30, 2014

‘Israeli Defence Force should receive the Nobel Peace Prize … for fighting with unmanageable restraint’, these were the words uttered by Ron Dermer, Israeli ambassador to the US, when addressing a Christians-for-Israel summit in Washington.

The same Ron Dermer, attacked the New York Times, not exactly known for its pro-Palestine stance, for failing ‘to mention that a million Israelis were in bomb shelters yesterday as 100 rockets were fired at our civilian population’.

Ron Dermer calls the New York Times, an ’embarrassment to journalism’.

At least the Israelis have somewhere to hide. Palestinians have nowhere to hide as they are bombed by the most highly militarised nation on earth.

This morning, Israel targeted a UN school, not the first UN school they have targeted. They have also targeted hospitals.

Later in the day, Israel targeted a market.

Yesterday, Israel targeted and destroyed the only electrical power station in Gaza. Maybe Israel thinks Hamas has electrical powered rockets.

Israel is destroying Gaza, neighbourhood by neighbourhood.

Gaza has no means of self defence, no anti-tank missiles, no surface-to-air missiles, and yet Israel calls for Gaza to be demilitarised, a call echoed by Zionist apologists.

In US, a Gallop Poll of Americans aged between 18 to 29, 51% said action by Israel was not justified, 23% said action was justified. One wonders what the figures would be if US lacked such a pro-Israel biased media.

In the UK, almost two thirds of the British public (62%) believe that the Israeli government is committing war crimes, according to a YouGov poll. One must assume the remaining third rely on BBC for their news.

The YouGov survey, conducted 27-28 July 2104, comes days after a separate poll carried out on behalf of The Sunday Times showed that 52% of the British public sees Israel’s bombing of the Gaza Strip as “unjustified”. Questioned about their attitude to the conflict more generally, 27% said their sympathies lie more with the Palestinians, while 14% said their sympathies lay more with the Israelis.

When I hear the Judeo-Fascists speak, it is like I am hearing something straight out of Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Israel was founded by terrorists, on land that was not theirs.

Appalling hypocrisy by the US. One the one hand condemn Israeli atrocities and call for a ceasefire on the other hand re-supply Israel with munitions in order that mass slaughter and destruction can continue. Americans should hang their heads in shame.

Israeli propaganda and mainstream media bias

July 27, 2014

This little cartoon produced by Zionists and Judeo-Fascists could be a caricature of coverage of Gaza by the BBC, Israel under threat from Palestinians, forced to fight back, but condemned by world opinion.

‘Cowardly’ BBC tells comedian Israel’s attack on Gaza is out of bounds for satire

July 24, 2014

Frankie Boyle, the comedian, has written an open letter criticising the BBC governing body’s ”cowardly rebuke” of his jokes about the Palestinian territories.

A woman in Zanna is overcome by the destruction in the village following heavy Israeli tank fire and air strikes over almost a week.

A woman in Zanna is overcome by the destruction in the village following heavy Israeli tank fire and air strikes over almost a week.

Obviously, it feels strange to be on the moral high ground but I feel a response is required to the BBC Trust’s cowardly rebuke of my jokes about Palestine.

As always, I heard nothing from the BBC but read in a newspaper that editorial procedures would be tightened further to stop jokes with anything at all to say getting past the censors.

In case you missed it, the jokes in question are:

“I’ve been studying Israeli Army Martial Arts. I now know 16 ways to kick a Palestinian woman in the back.”

“People think that the Middle East is very complex but I have an analogy that sums it up quite well. If you imagine that Palestine is a big cake, well… that cake is being punched to pieces by a very angry Jew.”

I think the problem here is that the show’s producers will have thought that Israel, an aggressive, terrorist state with a nuclear arsenal, was an appropriate target for satire.

The Trust’s ruling is essentially a note from their line managers. It says that if you imagine that a state busily going about the destruction of an entire people is fair game, you are mistaken. Israel is out of bounds.

The BBC refused to broadcast a humanitarian appeal in 2009 to help residents of Gaza rebuild their homes.

It’s tragic for such a great institution but it is now cravenly afraid of giving offence and vulnerable to any kind of well drilled lobbying.

I told the jokes on a Radio 4 show called “Political Animal”. That title seems to promise provocative comedy with a point of view.

In practice the BBC wish to deliver the flavour of political comedy with none of the content. The most recent offering I saw was BBC2’s “The Bubble”. It looked exactly like a show where funny people sat around and did jokes about the news. Except the thrust of the format was that nobody had read the papers.

I can only imagine how the head of the BBC Trust must have looked watching that, grinning like Gordon Brown having his prostate examined.

The situation in Palestine seems to be, in essence, apartheid. I grew up with the anti apartheid thing being a huge focus of debate. It really seemed to matter to everybody that other human beings were being treated in that way. We didn’t just talk about it, we did things, I remember boycotts and marches and demos all being held because we couldn’t bear that people were being treated like that.

A few years ago I watched a documentary about life in Palestine. There’s a section where a UN dignitary of some kind comes to do a photo opportunity outside a new hospital.

The staff know that it communicates nothing of the real desperation of their position, so they trick her into a side ward on her way out. She ends up in a room with a child who the doctors explain is in a critical condition because they don’t have the supplies to keep treating him.

She flounders, awkwardly caught in the bleak reality of the room, mouthing platitudes over a dying boy.

The filmmaker asks one of the doctors what they think the stunt will have achieved.

He is suddenly angry, perhaps having just felt at first hand something he knew in the abstract. The indifference of the world.

“She will do nothing,” he says to the filmmaker. Then he looks into the camera and says: “Neither will you”.

I cried at that and promised myself that I would do something. Other than write a few stupid jokes I have not done anything. Neither have you.

BBC is becoming a national disgrace. They keep repeating the myth Israel is under threat and is acting in self defence.

When airlines cancelled flights to Israel, the Prime Minister complained to the US, and asked that the airlines be forced to fly as there was no risk.

Comment posted on facebook:

It’s an irony that a group left here last week for vacation and tour in Israel. So far not one word of sirens or rockets on FB. Just nightclub life and sunbathing.

Today a school was hit. A UN school, a place of ‘alleged’ safety. The UN had given coordinates. Not the first school to be hit.

BBC duly reported the Israeli line, it was a Hamas rocket. Those on the ground dispute this, and say no evidence it was Hamas (not reported by BBC).

The World at Ten had an interesting interview with an analyst at the Washington based Brookings Institute. The analyst took the side of Hamas, pointing out Israel had failed to keep to terms of previous ceasefire, and that it was rationale of Hamas to demand lifting of blockade (which was agreed in previous ceasefire). No surprise, the interview was cut short.

The World at Ten then had a much longer piece on the rise of anti-Semitism in France.

This is what the BBC calls balance. Only it is not balance, it is a contrived balance.

Jon Snow, veteran Channel 4 journalist, and currently in Gaza, has produce far higher quality reports, and noted what Gilad Sharon (son of war criminal Ariel Sharon) had to say in a prominent front-page article in the Jerusalem Post:

“We need to flatten entire neighbourhoods in Gaza. Flatten all of Gaza. The Americans didn’t stop with Hiroshima – the Japanese weren’t surrendering fast enough, so they hit Nagasaki, too”.

Which is exactly what we are seeing as the policy pursued by Israel in Gaza.

Passing through the Gaza checkpoint back into Israel, Jon Snow had a destructive electronic signature on his MacAir. It would not do, after all, to have journalists coming out of Gaza with evidence of Israeli war crimes.

Another myth repeated endlessly by BBC, is that Hamas is using civilians as human shields. This is disputed by those on the ground, and has ironically been disputed by Jeremy Bowens, veteran BBC reporter, but not on BBC instead writing in New Statesman.

Another myth endlessly repeated by the BBC is that civilians are not being targeted. This is disputed by those on the ground.

It is not only BBC with pro-Israeli media bias.

Genocide in Gaza by Israeli Judeo-Fascists

July 22, 2014

Beating a Palestinian, an everyday normality for Israeli Judeo-Fascists.

Beating an American citizen, a game changer and an eye opener for Americans.

Net result, US media are putting Israel under far greater scrutiny for the genocide they are committing in Gaza.

The beating of this American teen by Israeli police helped spark the current crisis.

The fifteen-year old boy who was badly beaten, was an American cousin of the Palestinian boy who was kidnapped, beaten, then killed by Israelis. We know it was Israelis as CCTV outside the family shop caught him being kidnapped. He was beaten, knifed, then set alight whilst still alive. He was set alight by pouring gasoline into his mouth.

It was believed those who carried out this horrific attack was a revenge attack for the three Israelis killed.

Whilst we know who was responsible for the gruesome murder of the Palestinian boy, we do not know who was responsible for the killing of the three Israelis. A civilised country carries out a post-mortem to establish cause of death, followed by a murder inquiry, followed by capture of the suspect, followed by charges being laid, followed by a fair trial. For the Judeo-Fascists of the Pariah State of Israel, it was an excuse to carry out genocide in Gaza. The immediate knee jerk reaction of the Israeli Judeo-Fascists was that Hamas must be punished, which is code for Palestinians must be punished.

The genocide in Gaza is following a sickening familiar pattern. A period of peace, which shows the Palestinians not to be the ogres portrayed by Israel, provocation by Israel, retaliation by Palestinians, which is then used as an excuse by Israel for all out bombardment, and this time a ground attack, under the guise of self defence, and yet, as the world can see, it is Israel that is the aggressor.

We are seeing appalling hypocrisy.

Terrorists armed by Russia, shoot down Malaysian flight MH-17, and the West steps up sanctions against Russia.

Israel launches a brutal attack on Gaza. No sanctions by the West.

Russia was barred from the Farnborough International Airshow, the world’s biggest arms fair, for aggression in Ukraine, attacking a neutral country. Why was Israel not barred for its brutal attack on Gaza?

We need a ceasefire, only there are no honest brokers to negotiate a ceasefire. War criminal Tony Blair is not an honest broker. The military junta in Egypt is not an honest broker. The US, Israel’s biggest backer, is not an honest broker.

A ceasefire is a start, but is is not sufficient. There must be an immediate military and economic embargo of Israel, all flights to Israel must cease. banks, and other companies that deal with Israel and profit from the conflict must be targeted. Individuals must do their bit and boycott all products from Israel and encourage others to do likewise, speak to retailers and explain why they must not stock or sell products from Israel.

Sanctions and boycotts work. Dutch people persuaded a Dutch pension fund, PGGM, to withdraw from Israel.

Israel is a pariah state that must be isolated, weapons and money cut off.

Israel was founded on terrorism and it is exporting that terrorism to its neighbours.

Gaza is little more than an open air concentration camp with Israeli Judeo-Fascists the border guards.

Nazis incinerated Jews, gypsies and other undesirables in the gas ovens. The Jews save on transport costs and incinerate Palestinians in their homes.

Please sign the petition (so far over a million have signed) calling for an international boycott of Israel.

Israel was defeated in Lebanon and had to withdraw with its tail between its legs, as it was previously defeated in Gaza, and as it is now being defeated in Gaza.

Hamas warned before the invasion, if Israel attacked, it would open the Gates of Hell.

This evening there was a protest outside the Israeli Embassy in London, and that was just a warm up for mass protest on Saturday.
