The Art of Manipulation: Israel Manoeuvres to Put US on War Footing with Iran

21 Oct

[Published 20 October, 2017]

In the week that the puppet president, Trump announced he was tearing up the nuclear non-proliferation deal with Iran, it appears that it is Israel that is the one pulling his strings from the outset. Rehmat’s World wrote that American writer and author Dan Sanchez in an article had predicted that the bloody war by Israel and its Zionist lobbyists in the Middle East was destined to fail, in which he calls Israel a warmonger. Even as early as 1990, former president Reagan accused Israel of misleading him over the Iran contra affair.

Trump’s announcement that it was a “bad deal” clearly illustrates his willingness to wag tail when told by his master but also his naivety on the world stage and grasping of the fundamentals of basic diplomacy. The obtuse and train wreck of a moron even had the brass neck to lay blame on Iran for successive US invasions in the Middle East and North Africa.

For the record, when the security of the entire region of the Middle East and, indeed, the rest of the world is at stake, the last thing any sane individual should do, is seek to antagonise a wrongly perceived obstacle and enemy to world peace. Even the most simple-minded individual should know this.

As David Frum put it in the Atlantic, Trump’s threats aren’t credible because he himself isn’t credible. In other words, Trump is a complete moron. In the same piece, Frum goes on to suggest that Trump’s announcement is not unwelcome to some. Well, yes, Israel wants it to happen.

Trump should have learned this lesson from the recent response he received from Kim Jong Un after his sabre-rattling and making baseless threats to destroy North Korea.

In short, Trump has absolutely no power at all to tear up the deal, whatever Israel demands and neither does the US Congress, or the US State department. The sheer notion of a war with Iran is ludicrous wishful thinking at best. Israel can whistle.

Rightly so, Trump was immediately slapped down by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and a European Commission spokeswoman. Both of whom reminded Trump that the deal was a multi-lateral and not a bi-lateral agreement. Even France and Britain have spoken out against Trump on pulling out of the deal.

As was the case with the invasion of Iraq and Afghanistan before, Israel’s demands and expectations, are that the US ultimately dismantle Iran by creating another proxy war under false pretences of WMDs. This is not going to happen, because the rest of the world will not allow it. To tear it up would require the consent of all parties to the deal, which is never going to happen. China and Russia will never acquiesce.

Feck knows what Trump’s thinking was when coming out with this statement and obviously he wasn’t listening to any advice given to him before making it except that which was being fed to him via Israel.

Just like most other US president’s, Trump is another of Israel’s lapdog, acting like a deranged wind-up duracell bunny, with a perma case of foot-in-mouth and crass arrogance in a ‘who’s got the biggest dick contest.’

In addition to subsidising Israel’s economy to the tune of billions of US taxpayer dollars, the US and Israel have always had a special relationship regarding but-not-limited-to, who in the Middle East is permitted to possess such weapons and go unchecked.

The relationship has always favoured Israel, as you can see here:
IMG_20171013_104900

For those somehow unaware or ill-informed, the deal between Israel and the US, is that the latter acts as guard dog, whilst neglecting the American people, in favour of funding Israel’s tech developments and protecting its expansionism.

In Netanyahu’s recent speech to the UN General Assembly, he declared, “Israel’s policy toward the nuclear deal with Iran is very simple: Change it or cancel it.” And he made no secret of what that meant: If Trump doesn’t “cancel” the deal, he must get rid of its “sunset clause” and demand that Iran end its advanced centrifuges and long-range missile program, among other fundamentally unattainable objectives.

It is also well-known that Jared Kushner is a strong advocate of Israel and a longstanding friend of Netanyahu’s, wrote Gareth Porter in the above article. In his book, Porter contends that the nuclear threat by Iran is entirely manufactured by Israel.

To add further weight to Israel pulling the strings, it was the Israeli senior diplomat, Elad Ratson, attached to the British embassy of Israel, who kind of let the let the cat of the bag, so-to-speak.

Within a few days of Trump’s announcement, the US Treasury put out a statement designating Iran’s Revolutionary Guard a supporter of global terrorism but stopping short of accusing it of the manufacture of weapons of mass destruction.

As with many others, Ratson was quick to jump on and praise the statement, suggesting that it was a great move. When asked what he meant and to clarify the role of Israel in the matter he clammed up and immediately blocked the person asking him on social media but not before agreeing that war was on the cards. Ratson also praised the decision by the US to pull funding and support for UNESCO and suggested the UNRWA was next in Israel’s sights for criticism of Israel’s human rights abuses against Palestinians.

In June 2017, Hanin Abou Salem, for Al-Jazeera, claimed that the Netanyahu wants to disband the UNRWA because of its humanitarian work with Palestinian refugees. Ratson’s posts on social media and comments made by Ambassador Nikki Haley to the UN would seem to confirm. Until there is a solution between Israel and Palestine then the mandate of UNRWA is not done, says Salem. Therefore, the only way for Israel to resolve its Palestinian problem is to remove UNRWA.

As stated earlier, all of this is manufactured to serve Israel’s interests, whilst it, Israel, wreaks havoc across the world unabated. To be clear, Israel is a warmonger and worse than all other countries combined, in my personal opinion.

I never thought I would say this, but Israel is a pariah, largely responsible for all the wars in the Middle East and North Africa since the 70s, and humanity’s greatest threat. Yes, the US invaded and did the killing but Israel put them up to, causing complete carnage and creating the current refugee crisis in Europe in the process.

If Israel continues its meddling in this way, then it needs to be put down like the rabid dog that it is. Either Israel plays peacemaker and starts being civil or drag it and Netanyahu to the international criminal court. Should that fail and Israel continues in the way it has been, then dismantling it is the only solution in order to save the rest of humanity.

As the Kuwaiti official, Marzouq Al-Ghanim said this week to the Israeli delegation at conference in Russia: “occupiers… if you have no shame… get out of the room.”

What is it with White people, Black face, and Nazi uniforms?

18 Oct

[Published 18 October, 2017]

landscape-1507117833-this-morning-white-woman

Let’s forget the deeply troubled Rachel Dolezal’s identity politics and cultural appropriation for the time being — yes, I do intend to write a blog about her and on this subject shortly.

In recent weeks, we have been informed by the media of a group of moronic British university students going on a ‘safari tour’ in South London, to experience the ‘culinary delights’ of ‘ethnic food’ in the form of fried chicken.

Less so in the UK but more so in the US, the association of fried chicken as a dietary staple and regular consumption of, is often an implied stereotype and derogatory comment on the social standing of African-Americans.

It goes like this: eating chicken, is poor man’s food, so all African-Americans are poor and thus it continues… all Muslims are terrorists, all Jews are baby killers… and so on!

Rather benignly, the Students’ Union involved claimed that the event was in fact a counter response in response to the gentrification of the local area.

What can one deduce from this?

Presumably, the perception is, that inner city urban areas currently occupied by greater numbers of people of colour – entirely enabled due to Government settlement and disbursement policies, in case you are somehow unaware – are now being displaced, due to the pushing up of house prices and the cost of living by an influx of wealthier White people.

Therefore, why not allow and even celebrate the myth that people of colour; particularly Black or African-Americans, have for the love of fried chicken, wherever they are in the world.

Do you follow?

In other words, ‘We [privileged] White folk, are merely seeking to remember and give value to the contribution of Black people in society.’ Because this is what we perceive and have been taught to believe and has meaning to them — Black folk, of course.

[Cough].

Perhaps even more spectacular, than Dolezal’s self-delusion of her rights to how she should be entitled to self-identify her ethnicity, we now have another White female, who has gone completely beyond the pale.

In the header image of this blog, we can see Martina Big. Ms. Big (nee Adams), who was born a White woman, now claims to be Black, but only after taking a concoction of drugs, injections, supplements, and many hours on a sun-bed or in a solarium to change the colour and pigment of her natural skin tone.

According to media reports, Big, claims that it is not only her skin tone that has changed – implying that she has also lost her sense of White privilege – that her outlook, and understanding of the every day lived experience and predicament of being a person of colour is more pronounced.

[I dare say that it is, cough!]

Ms. Big claims that she underwent a transformation of herself, into a person of colour, after undergoing some kind of [chemically induced] evolutionary metamorphosis or realisation of the suffering of minorities.

Seriously, you could not make this shit up!

Next, in view of the fact that this month is also recognised internationally as Black History Month, we also have the case of a British Head Teacher of a primary school in London, giving the okay to pupils dressing up as African slaves.

In repeating comments made by a local newspaper*, the Guardian newspaper reports that the school advised parents:

“It might be an idea to not wash these clothes and stain them with tea or coffee to look more authentic.”

The Head Teacher has since apologised, claiming that the idea for such recognition and commemoration, was, sadly, in considerable poor taste.

Right, that makes it all okay then!

As one parent, speaking to the Newham Recorder*, said: “You wouldn’t ask Jewish children to come in and re-enact the Holocaust.”

Apparently, the same parent then appeared to defend the school, saying the letter sent to parents was “rogue” rather than representative of the school’s approach.

Then there is the matter of a halloween party in a small-minded community in North Carolina, depicting White children in Blackface, as ‘puppets on a string’, for the amusement of White locals.
removed photo.png

For the ignorant among you, Black-face has a long history in White, Western cultures, for mocking and belittling people of colour.

Again, apparently, this is also culturally irrelevant and only fun!

Nothing to do with the general perception of White people’s right to be offensive in such a manner.

But hey, freedom of expression, right?!

All hail the privilege of the White man!

As the Raw Story also reported, imitation, ridicule, or mimicry of people (of other cultures) in suffering, is a particular trait of White people.

Another willing participant, is the multinational company, Ebay, which was selling imitation Anne Frank costumes for Halloween. I mean, as if the tragic story of Anne Frank – not to mention the millions of Jews and others who died in WW2 – is some kind of further amusement for the privileged the White people?

As innocuous as some elements of cultural appropriation or mocking may first appear to be, such as wearing braids and tattoos, parading around in Nazi uniforms and Blackface clearly do not fit into that category.

Such arrogance, or perceived right or sense of privilege, is clearly an anathema to any normal individual and a disease of the society, culture, and thinking to which it belongs.

How can mocking someone’s history, circumstance, torture, suffering, or misfortune ever be considered an acceptable form of emulation or any thing else in any modern or progressive society?

Seriously, take a look at yourselves!

Las Vegas Terror Attack: Israeli Propaganda and Fake News

7 Oct

[Published 05 October, 2017]

DLJUY_8WkAEI0TR

In the aftermath of the recent terrorist attack in Las Vegas, in which more than 406 people were injured and 58 dead, both the mainstream and right-wing media were quick to initially blame it on a Muslim extremist.

It began with the likes of Breitbart and the UK’s Mail Online claiming that the attack was carried out by ISIS.

The Mail Online’s Rod Ardehali published a piece suggesting ISIS had called for an attack as early as May. The headline and Ardehali’s piece have since been amended and Ardehali’s name as the author has been removed.

DLIFf5-W0AEVIU1

Later that day, on the 02 October, the claim that the terrorist in this attack was a Muslim convert was published via Amaq, Islamic State’s semi-official news agency, which we now know to be a false claim.

As one social media commentator amusingly put it: “ISIS would claim responsibility for anything, except PPI [Payment Protection Insurance].”

Several hours before Amaq’s now debunked claim and Site Intel Group’s subsequent repetition of it, Arutz Sheva claimed in an ‘unofficial report’, that the Israeli radio station, Reshet Bet had reported that the terrorist’s name was one ‘Samir Al-Hijab’, who had converted to Islam in his 30’s, claiming Samir was Stephen Paddock’s Muslim name.
DLI3KuvWkAEFNqg

The right-wing Breitbart propaganda website, created and funded by Israel, repeated the false claims first made by Site Intel Group, a site led by Rita Katz, whose site claims to be a ‘provider of Jihadist/Far Right & Far Left/Cyber Security News’, that the terrorist was a Muslim convert.

Like the Mail Online, Arutz has now amended its original piece and reporting on this false claim and Reshet has denied any such reporting of it. Arutz only did so after a barrage of demands were made on social media for it to stop spreading fake news.

Unfortunately, this has not stopped any of other right-wing media, extremists and supporters, like Paul Joseph Weston, Robert Spencer, and the Zionist Islamophobe, Ambrosine Chetrit repeating similar false claims. Even the so-called liberal Haaretz newspaper repeated the claim.

As we now know, the terrorist in the Las Vegas was one Stephen Craig Paddock, a 64-year-old, who is believed to have been shot when Las Vegas police entered the 32 second floor hotel room of the Mandalay Bay Hotel from where he was shooting.

Alongside the false claim of any ISIS involvement, the former partner of Paddock’s female companion, a man named Geary Danley, was also falsely implicated. Again, this was put out by the very same right-wing media sources, largely due to a search of some of Geary’s social media postings criticising Donald Trump.

This is yet another case of fake news and false reporting by the mainstream and right-wing media outlets in order to demonise Muslims to further Israel’s interests and agenda.

Interestingly, Rita Katz, who is largely responsible for this false narrative, also has links to Arutz Sheva and many of the other right-wing supporters of this fake narrative that ISIS was responsible and Paddock was a Muslim convert.

It is also worth noting, that Ms. Katz is an Iraqi Jew and has spent the last week making retractions and amendments to the original fake story she authorised, if not putting it out herself since it was discovered that the story was just that.

Her father was executed for spying for Israel, thus giving her good reason to dislike Muslims. She also supported the invasion of Iraq and has many connections with Israel and the Zionist lobby and propaganda machine in the US.

Not surprisingly, Facebook and Google have also played a role in reporting the false narrative that this terrorist attack was initiated by ISIS and Paddock was a Muslim Convert, from which they have also profited by placing ads alongside fake postings and stories published.

As the UK’s Guardian newspaper noted:

Facebook’s “Safety Check” page, which is supposed to help people connect with loved ones during the crisis, ended up briefly promoting a story that said the shooter had “Trump-hating” views, along with links to a number of other hoaxes and scams, according to screenshots. At the same time, Google users who searched Geary Danley’s name were at one point directed to the 4chan thread filled with false claims.

The Las Vegas police have stated, categorically, that this attack was not initiated by ISIS, Paddock was not a Muslim, nor was his partner involved (she was in the Philippines), or was Geary involved, who was on the opposite side of the US at the time it took place.

ISIS’ claims of responsibility for this terrorist attack seek to instil fear and ferment hatred of Muslims. But as we all know ISIS is funded by the US and other, occidental, governments.

Despite the fake narrative of the Las Vegas terrorist attack now being disproved, there will be many who will still believe that the fake story is still true.

If, at all possible, these individuals, need to acquire some common sense and need to ask themselves: Why and who would spread these false rumours, fake news, and misinformation?

The answer to these questions are simple: It benefits Israel and harms Muslims.

This is exactly what Israel and its advocates and supporters want.

As Malcolm X is once reputed to have said:

He also said, that if you are not careful, the media [and your governments] will have you hating the oppressed, and loving those who oppress the weak and oppressed.

Forgive the use of the pun, but stay woke and do not believe ALL your governments tell you or that you read in the media!

Lavinia Woodward: Class, Racial Injustice, and Judicial Reform Through Lenient Sentencing

27 Sep

[Published 27 September, 2017]

Earlier this week, Judge Ian Pringle, sitting at Oxford, UK, gave a Lavinia Woodward, an Oxford University student a suspended sentence.

The sentence was for the wounding of her then partner, in what is thought to have been a one off incident of aggression fuelled by alcohol and drugs.

In his sentencing and summation of the proceedings, Judge Pringle took into account Ms. Woodward’s age, her education, and having no previous convictions.

You may cry foul but Pringle is known to be consistent and often lenient in his sentencing of similar cases involving young people and violent crime.

You might say, that Pringle is a reformist to some extent, having backed and participated in a campaign in 2015 to help keep young people out of court and criminal justice system, through education including court visits and learning about the judicial process.

Unfortunately, unlike in previous cases, where the defendant has had a mean age of 18, Ms. Woodward is 24 years of age. So, many have argued, should have been sentenced as an adult; save her class, upbringing, and elite educational background.

Rightly so, many groups and individuals have suggested that these aspects of her life are the very things that saved her from a prison sentence. Thus adding weight to the view of White privilege and exceptionalism.

This response suggests that, a man – and particularly men from black and minority ethnic and/ or working class backgrounds – would have been treated less leniently. That this is often the case is an indisputable fact. 

The evidence available clearly suggests, that an 18 – 30 year old male in the UK, charged with any offence, violent or otherwise; particularly from a minority ethnic background, is far more likely to be charged, prosecuted, refused bail, sentenced, and given a longer sentence for the same or a similar crime than any other individual.

Erm, having read through some of the coverage and finer detail of his judgments, this is not the case and does not apply to Judge Pringle, but generally (with most other Judges) it would be a yes!

As the Lammy report recently stated, the fact remains, that in the UK court system, black and other minority ethnic males are often given more severe sentences; some times up to 52% more so.

The reasons for the discrepancy in sentencing are not clear, but we can hazard a good guess that racial prejudice, stereotyping, and cognitive bias all play a major part.

Perhaps more Judges should take Judge Pringle’s reformist approach.

Donald Trump, Obamacare, and Slight of Hand

27 Sep

[Published 27, September, 2017]

That odious and greedy, orange potato head, Donald Trump is at again with Obamacare!

Everyone who requires cover under the Affordable Care Act is required to register. However, one of the big myths about it, is that it’s free when it isn’t*.

The deadline for enrolment is usually on annual basis, with registration open between 01 November – 31 January each year, for cover for the following year, and everyone who is eligible has to pay a premium*. Why one is required to enrol annually and not just once, goodness knows!

Trump however, not content with having failed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and with no signs that it will fail, has quietly cut the advertising budget by a staggering 90& for the public information awareness campaign encouraging enrolment for 2018.

trump

What this means, is that anyone requiring cover, who fails to enrol by the deadline, will not necessarily be covered. The Obamacare website states:

“If you missed open enrollment, your only options are Short Term Health Insurance, employer-based coverage, Medicaid, and CHIP. Those who miss open enrollment may find themselves with no other options and may end up owing the fee.”

Obviously, most individuals who require cover under the ACA, are unable to afford their own cover and/ or do not have enough cover provided by their employer or private insurance, if indeed they are either employed or can even afford any insurance of their own.

According to CNN Money, enrolment for ACA is actually on the slide, as it puts it, which appears to be  largely due to a small number of recipients finding alternative cover through employment, but most of the slide is due to people no longer being able to afford to pay their premiums.

So, by cutting funding for advertising and public awareness campaigns encouraging people to enrol, Trump is deliberately seeking to sabotage Obamacare and underhandedly leaving millions of American citizens without any health cover of any kind, whatsoever.

Not only has Trump pulled the advertising budget, but he is also accused of reducing the subsidy available, changing the eligibility criteria, and types of cover available to applicants.

The Hill reports:

The Congressional Budget Office indicated in a report this week that 24 million people could become uninsured under the GOP plan by 2026.

The Obamacare website suggests that anyone wishing to apply should seek too do so no later than the 15 December. So, to get the word out, please share this blog and the enrolment link here: https://www.healthcare.gov/get-coverage/

Let’s show Trump and his cronies, that health care is a basic human right for everyone!

Aung San Suu Kyi: Rohingya Muslims and the Nobel Peace Prize Winning Dictator

22 Sep

[Published 22 September, 2017]

ASSK.PNG

In the last week, Aung San Suu Kyi, the former political prisoner and so-called human rights activist, who was under house arrest for 15 years until she became leader of Myanmar, refused to attend the UN General Assembly to answer questions on the plight of the Rohingya Muslims.

Whilst more than 400,000 Rohingya Muslims have been driven out of their homes in their droves by the Myanmar military and forced to flee across the border into neighbouring Bangladesh, a spokesperson for Kyi, cited that she had more important ‘security’ and ‘domestic’ issues to attend.

This is a travesty and the world and our governments should demand to know from Kyi, what could be more pressing and of immediate concern, than the forced mass exodus, displacement, and man-made human catastrophe created and enabled by Kyi herself and with the full backing of her government?

Indeed, the UN and other aid agencies, now recognise Kyi’s wilful and deliberate inaction and enablement of this brutal atrocity, which clearly amounts to nothing less than ethnic cleansing and genocide on a scale not seen since Rwanda and Hitler’s extermination of European Jews in WWII.

Kyi won the hearts of the world and made her name for her civil disobedience and activism against the military dictatorship that placed her under house arrest and was awarded a Nobel Peace Prize for her activism.

By ignoring the plight of the Rohingya and allowing this to happen, Kyi has become the very thing that she once despised and opposed.

Kyi, herself, is now a dictator and ultimately responsible for this tragedy. She is not worthy of her title as a humanitarian head of a democratic state; and certainly not worthy of the honour of being awarded Nobel Peace Prize. The Nobel Prize Committee should strip Kyi of her honour.

If, or until the people of the world demand action from Kyi, the international community should impose sanctions on Myanmar; the country should be isolated both economically and diplomatically; and countries like the UK, US, and Israel should follow the example of others and cease the sale of all arms to Myanmar.

Should isolation and sanctions fail to persuade Kyi and her government to act in the correct manner, then the UN Security Council should send in a peace-keeping force to Myanmar and install a soft border between the Rakine region and the rest of Myanmar.

Under threat of being brought before the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity, Kyi should be brought before the UN and forced into dialogue with an elected leader of the Rohingya.

If dialogue fails, then the UN and the world should support a plan to partition Myanmar, establishing and giving the Rohingya their own country.

Much like the truth and reconciliation committee in South Africa, an investigation should be instigated in order to determine the extent of human rights abuses, who the perpetrators are, followed by prosecutions in the International Criminal Court.

The following links could go some way to help make the above happen, so please do your bit and do not ignore this.

Sign the Petition: https://www.change.org/p/take-back-aung-san-suu-kyi-s-nobel-peace-prize

If you are in Europe, you can write to your MEP and ask them to bring this to the attention to the European Parliament by clicking HERE!

For citizens in the UK, please click and do the same HERE! If in the US, you should click HERE!

If Kyi needs to be imprisoned again, so be it.

Be the change!

Agent Provocateurs: Silencing Freedom of Speech, Zionist Infiltrators, and Faux Claims of Anti-Semitism

14 Sep

[Published 12 September, 2017]

Screen Shot 2017-09-14 at 17.27.38.png

[Image available via the interwebz]

In the above image you will see Stephen Silverman, whom many refer to as “Slitherman” and “the Enforcer”. I will explain why and the relevance of including him in this blog in a moment.

First, let’s do an explainer as to why I wrote this blog about him and other likeminded, nefarious individuals.

This blog came about due to an orchestrated altercation to disrupt a pro-Palestinian event, held on Coventry, UK, less than a week ago.

The keynote speaker was MK Haneen Zoabi, a Palestinian and member of Israel’s Knesset; or parliament, if you like.

The event was organised by the West Midlands Palestine Solidarity Campaign with pro-Palestinian Human Rights Activist, Sarah Wilkinson.

The event was a public event but was unfortunately infiltrated by several Zionists agitators; including Alan Blumenthal, who is a member of the UK Independence Party and his sister, Mandy (Dingle) Blumenthal.

IMG_20170910_141931.jpg

(No offence intended to the actress who plays the character, Mandy Dingle in a longstanding British soap)!

Alan and Mandy were attending in a reporting capacity – intending to be disruptive and to feedback to their fellow Zionists – and began filming at the event.

No consent was obtained or requested by Alan and Mandy to film. They were initially allowed to film, but both were shouting at Haneen Zoabi saying: “everything you’re saying is absolute rubbish… you’re a liar.. you’re inciting.. you’re supporting terrorism.”

They left their seats several times to come closer to Zoabi and were repeatedly asked to return to their seats. Both refused to comply; and so, Sarah Wilkinson stood between them and Zoabi but in the moment hastily and, in my own opinion, wrongly snatched the device they were using to film.

You can see HERE that Alan Blumenthal became extremely violent, punching several individuals who were attempting to restrain him whilst waiting for the police to arrive. Blumenthal is also alleged to have kicked Sarah Wilkinson whilst she lay on the floor.

Mandy can be seen refusing to leave and is shouting most of the abuse, calling Zoabi a “racist bitch.” Interestingly, Mandy recently had her 5 minutes of fame in the media, claiming that the leader of the UK Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn was antiSemitic and that she was considering leaving the UK for Israel – albeit within the next 5 years or so.

(If that bad, why not leave right away, Mandy? You can only serve one master, as they say).

As with other pro-Palestinian events, like the recent PalExpo event, it is quite usual for Zionists and Jews, like David Collier and Jonathan Hoffman to covertly gain entry in order to provoke, heckle, and make claims of antiSemitism.

In a recent tweet posted by Mandy, she confirmed that she had attended events held by the firebrand, persona non grata, British politician George Galloway, claiming that she had been there and done that (sic).

When challenged on the matter, Mandy responded, classically, with faux claims of hatred towards Jews, saying that what was filmed and her reasons for being present at the event under deception as a provocateur, was in fact ‘Pallywood’, implying that it was manufactured to even suggest it.

In the case of Stephen Silverman, who is the ‘director of enforcement and prosecutions’ for the nefarious Campaign Against Antisemitism, when the European Forum for Ethnic Minorities (EFEMICO) tweeted a message of support to Sarah Wilkinson, asking if she had come out unscathed and commenting on the deception and actions of Alan Blumenthal who assaulted her, Silverman’s response was to also make faux claims of antiSemitism.

EFEMICO responded to Silverman, stating that criticism of an apartheid regime, such as Israel is, like any other other country guilty of crimes against humanity, is in no way racist. Silverman was also reminded that no one is entitled to use and abuse their religion or ethnicity to counter valid criticism of a State’s human rights abuses. His response was typical and dismissive, as is the default response of any individual with a similar sense of persecution complex as have many members of the World Jewry.

Perhaps somewhat understandably, the following image explains perfectly why so many Jews are so defensive and pernicious in the defence of Israel:

Screen Shot 2017-07-19 at 16.27.14

This view is not to diminish the persecution of the Jewish diaspora; the realities of which forever emblazoned in our memories and should never occur in our shared histories ever again. That said, the suffering and persecution of Jews in the last century is now used as a stick with which to beat non-Jews over the head or to smear and demonize anyone who is critical of Israel or Judaism.

As indicated in the above quote from the United States Peace Institute, the collective trauma of Jewish suffering has made the World Jewry overly hyper-vigilant, extremely defensive, and generally intolerant to any kind of criticism.

This, in part, is why many pro-Israeli and/ or Zionist Jews will go out their way, by any means necessary, to discredit and silence anyone who is critical of them, and why many non-Jews believe that members of the Jewish community are generally duplicitous and pernicious in many ways.

This sensitivity is why Alan and Mandy Blumenthal did what they did and reacted in the way they did when confronted. Again, it’s also why Stephen Silverman responded the way he did.

Ask yourself these two questions:

1. Why would anyone infiltrate and record an event on a subject to which they are fundamentally opposed and then decry false claims of antiSemitism when exposed? Or;

2. Make false claims of hatred toward Jews when it’s the State of Israel that is being criticised and not Jews themselves?

Incidentally, Silverman has since deleted his tweets to EFEMICO, but not before they were archived and uploaded to a third party website.

Purely and simply, what the Blumenthals did was devious, wrong, and the brother’s violent response was a base response to a non-existent threat in a situation that he and his sister created, when neither he nor his sister should have been present at the event in the first place, and should have removed themselves immediately and without any fuss when asked.

Silverman’s response to EFEMICO was a pernicious smear, compounded by the fact that he was expecting a cutting response – and further, by the fact that he removed his tweets soliciting the response – so as to imply that EFEMICO was the aggressor, when this was clearly not the case.

This is not the first time Silverman has behaved this way. In his capacity for the Campaign Against AntiSemitism, he frequently threatens people and venues by letter and email and is a known harasser of two women on social media, having set up several troll accounts to abuse them, which he was forced to admit in court under penalty of perjury.

As was once said in a radio interview by a former Israeli Minister, referring to unfounded and mendacious smears of antiSemitism: “It’s a trick we use… we always use it.”

If it’s not acceptable for People of Colour to play the ‘race card’, so-to-speak; or Muslims to claim Islamophobia regarding criticism of patriarchal interpretations and indoctrination of Islam, then neither is it acceptable for the Jewish community to incessantly make false claims of antiSemitism.

One can only hope that one day, Jews learn to accept valid criticism (of themselves and Israel) instead of trying silence critics and outlaw it.

This attack dog approach, exceptionalism, and victim mentality, is counterproductive and extremely tedious, to which the many are now waking up to and will no longer tolerate.

Update – 22 September, 2017

After reading this blog, Mandy Blumenthal took umbrage and tweeted that the contents was lies and libel.

Her tweet was favourited by her partner, Mark Lewis, a libel lawyer for the firm Seddons, who is also legal counsel for the Israeli government, in combatting the BDS movement.

Presumably Mark – with whom I have some history and once suggested that I should be given a one way ticket to the Middle East, to be thrown off a building for being gay – thought somehow, that he was going to intimidate me.

No such luck, Mark!

As with the video footage available, corroborated evidence from various sources, and the above screenshot shows, Mandy and Alan were violent and did scream insults and abuse at MK Zoabi.

This blog article is about Luke Akehurst and the extent of his involvement against the will of the British people and collusion with the State of Israel to undermine British politics and democracy.

You should be aware that Luke Akehurst has been a Labour member for many years; is known to dislike the current party leader, Jeremy Corbyn; and is a very active supporter of the Israeli government in the UK.

We’ll go into his work and professional background, other activities, as well as links to the nefarious Israeli lobby, shortly, but let’s first start with what initially necessitated this blog exposé on his involvement.

On the 26 July, 2017, Luke tweeted the following:

Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 17.44.06.png

It was in direct response to a tweet by Green Party Leader, Caroline Lucas, calling for the complete cessation of arms sales to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Luke replies that supporting Saudi’s assault on Yemen is justified in his view, because (and I quote): “I absolutely do not want Iran to win in Yemen or anywhere else.”

Luke’s view of Iran, ‘as a common enemy of Western society’, is essentially a Zionist and Israeli one, but not entirely unjustified.

His comments were made in reference to current war efforts and activities by the Saudi regime in Yemen.

To be clear, Iran is not currently active in Yemen.

Rather, the UAE, Israel, and the US, currently run secret torture centres there, and the country is under constant joint military bombardment, including use of White phosphorous.

Use of White phosphorous has long been banned under international law, but you can see in one of the images above (girl to the right), that it is still in use and the damage and suffering its indiscriminate use causes.

Since 2015, in excess of 2,000 children have been murdered by the Saudis in Yemen and now Amnesty, UNICEF, and others report major outbreaks of cholera and potential famine.

Hichem Yezza, Editor-in-chief at Ceasefire Magazine, called Luke’s support for Saudi repugnant and ill-informed.

Luke’s response was to first question Hichem’s credentials on the matter and then seemingly ignore the costs of orchestrated proxy wars, claiming that selling arms to Saudi is right and proper because it protects British industry and jobs.

For the record, it is no secret that the Saudi war with Yemen is a proxy war and part of Israel’s so-called Yinon plan, to establish a greater Israel, and wipe out its Muslim and Arab enemies in the Middle East.

According to international law, Israel is not permitted to have any nuclear weapons; but it does, and has the fourth largest military in the world.

The fact of the matter is, countries like Turkiye, Iran, and Pakistan, help keep Israel and its plans in check. Without which, Israel’s activities would go unchecked, with disastrous outcomes for the whole of humanity.

Nonetheless, Israel continues to do all it can to work around and undermine these safeguards.

Despite knowing this, Luke refuses to publicly admit any of it, claiming that it’s all a conspiracy.

However, on closer inspection, when you ask Luke about his work and affiliations, he goes quiet all of a sudden.

For example, Luke is employed as a director for the British-based ‘We Believe in Israel’ Campaign (WBiIC).

WBiIC is a campaigning organisation founded and set up by BICOM, known as the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre, which was founded by the Israeli billionaire, Chaim Poju Zabludowicz.

Zabludowicz acquired his fortune via his father, Schlomo, an arms dealer.

Poju Zabludowicz was recently required to give evidence in corruption charges laid against Netanyahu and is known to have given former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, significant, undisclosed personal donations and gifts.

BICOM and the ‘We Believe in Israel’ Campaign are lobbying organisations, but neither are registered as such, which is a legal requirement in accordance with UK lobbying regulations.

Luke denies that either BICOM or WBiIC are involved in lobbying activities, but you can see the evidence here for yourselves.

Further evidence of lobbying can be found here.

Chaim Poju Zabludowicz is also closely linked with the Community Security Trust founder, Gerald Maurice Ronson, who is a convicted fraudster and suspected tax avoider.

The ‘We Believe in Israel’ Campaign published a claim on its website to have gathered the support of 200 plus UK Members of Parliament, to support the activities and efforts of the State of Israel as part of their individual candidacy and election commitment in the 2017 General Election.

This is a clear breach of electioneering and lobbying regulations.

After some persistent questioning, Luke confirmed that BICOM pays his salary as director of WBiIC.

Luke also confirmed that he has met with the former Israeli diplomat Shai Masot.

For those unaware, Masot was sent back to Israel, after he was exposed by Al Jazeera, for attempting to infiltrate and subvert British politics and democratic processes.

When questioned as to when he last met with Masot, Luke answered that he last met with him in 2016.

Luke was pushed further, to provide exact details, of what he last discussed with Masot, but refused to answer.

Similarly, when asked to give the name of his new contact and handler from Israel at the British Israeli Embassy, Luke also refused to answer and simply blocked the Twitter account asking him these questions.

[Watch and listen from 2mins 40secs]

Interestingly, Luke has not expressed any concern regarding the girl (see header image) who was disfigured by the use of White phosphorous.

Not that you care, Luke, but her name is Walaa Hussien al-Hutroum, aged 9, from Sanaa, Yemen. The photo was taken on the 25 April, 2015.

Luke is also implicated in the false smears of antiSemitism instigated by Ruth Smeeth, MP, former staff member of BICOM against Labour activist Mark Wadden.

Luke is also a member and supporter of the World Zionist Organisation and proactively works to counter and criminalise the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

British Sikhs Rally With Alt Right to Malign and Vilify Muslims

29 Jul

[Published 29 July, 2017]

For somewhat disgruntled and clearly resentful reasons, a number of British Sikh organisations appeared to have aligned themselves with members of the alt shite and libertarian movement in order to attack Muslims.

One of these organisations is the Sikh Awareness Society (SAS), which lists Prabjot Singh as its website registrant. Bhai Mohan Singh (above) is also involved in the work and activities of SAS.

SAS states on its website, that:

“In Britain today Sikh youth are still actively targeted on the basis of their religion and history. This historically linked hate-crime causes much emotional distress to the families involved with the majority of these cases ending up in abuse.”

Perhaps herein lies part of the root cause of the Sikh community’s alignment with Far Right commentators and hate preachers in an ongoing bitter attack on British Muslims.

It seems that SAS are rightfully unhappy with the fact that British police wrongly classify racist attacks on Sikhs as antiMuslim hate crimes and/ or classify them under general “Race and Religious” hate crimes.

It is perfectly right that SAS and other Sikh organisations should have such grievances and challenge the police to properly record hate crimes according to the classification of different ethnic and religious groups.

As early as March 2016, another Sikh organisation, which lists Lord (Indarjit) Singh of Wimbledon CBE as its director and published a letter on its website regarding the false reporting and recording of hate crimes against Sikhs.

SAS, however, has gone one step too far and sought to align itself and garnered support from the likes of Katie Hopkins, Anne-Marie Waters, Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, and Dr Ryan Waters of the UK Independence Party.

Waters, Hopkins, and Lennon, have all repeatedly called for the genocide and expulsion of all Muslims from Europe, claiming that Europe is being overrun and facing imminent Islamification and that the White race is being wiped out.

Bhai Mohan Singh, also of SAS, recently gave an interview for LBC with the former radio presenter, Hopkins, before she was forced to resign due to her continued and unapologetic racist and antiMuslim outbursts after a public campaign.

Hopkins, described as a PR machine for extremists, has recently been photographed having a selfie taken with a holocaust denier and travelled to Sicily to support the anti-Immigrant campaign, Defend Europe.

Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson, is more than happy to drag up and reignite ancient and colonial division between Sikhs and Muslims, which SAS seems more than happy go along with and draw out to no constructive or positive benefit or outcome.

Returning to the Sikh communities grievances with police monitoring of hate crimes and having corresponded with Jasvir Singh of the Sikh Federation, UK, the available data for hate crimes against Sikhs would suggest that some 3,500 hate crimes were misreported and recorded for 2015/ 6.

But do such valid grievances of Muslim grooming gangs and the marginalisation of Sikh concerns regarding the police ever warrant the Sikh communities White supremacist associations?

Many members of the Sikh community say no!

The comments have been anonymised in a now apparently deleted Facebook post, but here are some of the sentiments voiced by Sikhs in relation to SAS’s antiMuslim stance and links to the Far Right:

“Katie Hopkins a known and openly racist broadcaster?”

“Fucking pricks. You don’t represent my community.”

“Why are you aligning us with Katie Hopkins? She is hijacking this for her own cause”

Hardeep Singh, of the Sikh Messenger, has tweeted and posted numerous comments and articles against Muslims, including mocking the right of Muslim women to choose and have the right to wear head and face coverings in public.

In response to Singh’s mocking of the right to wear face and head coverings, the Sikh Federation appeared to condemn his comments and in fact draw parallels with similar concerns affecting Sikhs in Europe.

Rick Ross: Black Male Misogyny Enables White Prejudice, Promotes Inequality, and Damages Rights and Inclusion in Society

27 Jul

[Published 27 July, 2017]

!!Warning!! This blog post is graphic in content and fighting talk about the malaise of Black male identity and misogyny.

The rapper, Rick Ross, is recently quoted as having said, that “women rappers would succumb to him… for sex, to feed his animalistic need for sex”. (Paraphrased)

[Pardon the vulgarity, but I very much want you to be disgusted in his and the others’ views and actions I mention here].

Ross did not say, whether he would force himself on a woman – to fuck her, and feed his desire to shoot his load inside her and/ or spread his insidious seed – but his comments, suggest that he would, regardless of her right to refuse him and say No! He has, in the past, however, condoned rape.

Much like the despicable, serial rapist, Bill Cosby – who regularly drugged women, in order to have sex them; and then denied doing so, telling the women he abused, that he would ruin them, if they ever spoke out against him – Ross is also a sexual predator.

Not only are Ross’ comments on the inclusion, abuse, and value of women within society and the music industry, clearly and blatantly sexist, but they represent the views of many delinquent Black males, who believe that women should be treated as lesser than men, as weaker, servants, dogs, and sex slaves.

This view offends me greatly. So let me start by saying that this is not on, and I ain’t having any of it!

Not withstanding the deliberate and continued oppression by the White elite, of PoC – it is Black males like Ross and Cosby, who are significantly responsible for the high transmission of HIV in Afrika and elsewhere around the world, as well as high pregnancy rates and single parent families in Black communities in general.

It’s people like Ross and Cosby, who some would say, are responsible for perpetuating the subjugation and inequalities of all Black and White women, that continue to hold back Black communities and the PoC generally.

In short, these Black men contribute to the ongoing trauma that is present as a result of ongoing structural racism as a consequence of continued White hegemony.

Furthermore, it’s people like Ross and the Jamaican performer Buju Bantion – who enable, and facilitate similar abuse, but also murder of members of the LGBTIA+ community, because of the false religious doctrine instilled in us, by White, genocidal, religious zealots – like the fanatical Evangelist Christians, who are now working overtime, in Afrikan countries and other parts of the world, today.

Snoop Dog, another Afrikan American wastrel rapper regurgitates the same religious, hate-filled, pernicious fulminations as the religious zealots, that women are to serve men, and that members of the LGBTIA+ community are an abomination.

Why, when there are over 1,500 recorded species of animals, birds, and insects, who exhibit homosexuality, equality, and gender parity, are the likes of Snoop and Banton, even permitted airtime to espouse such homophobic and sexist prejudiced and hateful views? Should not we be boycotting them? Of course we should!

Don’t give me your excuses of Black trauma and victimhood, like your upbringing, poor education, poverty, police brutality, gang culture, criminality, or structural racism.

These, of course, are all relevant, and undeniable, contributory factors in the social pathology of the condition and experiences of many Black men.

However, these pathologies do not in any way clearly explain or validate the continued and persistent homophobic, misogynistic treatment and procrastinations of these Black men and do not represent or explain the morality (or lack of) of the lived experiences of Black men.

As traumatic as these indicators of the Black condition often are, this immoral stance of misogyny, errant fathers, and homophobia) is merely an excuse and does not work in this instance and has no relevance to how Black men seek to be or act out as the oppressor, or assimilate the views of White patriarchs and Far Right racists and extremists in order to validate themselves.

From my own upbringing and experience, this absolutely does not wash.

Along with all the White racists and elites who continue to maintain positions of power and wealth, violent, misogynistic and homophobic Black men should fall off the end of the world as far as I am concerned.

Black, White, or whatever, there is no place for you.

You are very much part of the problem. I reiterate the view, that these Black men contribute to and further enable the current Black condition and lived experience of the victim and perpetually oppressed.

For the Black man, it is not nor should it ever be about his ego and machismo and ‘growing a pair’, or ‘manning up’; it is and should be purely and simply about aspiring to be and do something better than the present barriers and state of affairs that exist affecting Black communities today.

It is about being better than the White oppressor, having common decency, shared values, and treating people right if you want to be accepted and respected!

For the record, I don’t like the term or the use of ‘n’ word, but I am inclined to use this deeply derogatory term, as a deserving description of them, because I consider these men (Ross, Cosby et al) to be barely human and entirely undeserving of any respect in our society and communities.

As a PoC, myself, for a number of years, I have sought to reclaim the use of the term, (1) So that racists cannot hurt me, when trying to use it against me; (2) to define Black and White males, who seek to undermine, and diminish the rights of others.

I want them to know that this is what I think of them and what we should all think of them. I get that the word is used to denigrate – and that is exactly what I wish to do to these men – denigrate them, as worthless, failed, immoral, human beings.

Insofar as the role and infleunce of religion is concerned – an education for Ross, Snoop, Cosby, and all White people, who seek to circumvent the rights, equity, and inclusion of us all – the Black community did not have a religion, per se, before it was introduced and thrusted upon us by the Western missionaries.

As the honourable Desmond Tutu once said: “The White man asked us [Afrikans] to close our eyes. In the one hand the White man gave us the Bible. In the other, he took away our lands, riches, and our rights and freedoms“.

Every White, Black, or Muslim man, who panders to the view that his gender, strength or physicality, rights, or status as a man, are privilege over and above those of women and others, is deserving of this horrible and hurtful term in my book; and should hang their heads in shame. That your views are compounded by your misguided belief that some higher being gave you such rights and privileges – well, that is just completely delusional.

Rant over!
