[The above collection includes images available from the internet of Luke Akehurst speaking on behalf of the Zionist Federation, an image of a girl disfigured by use of Saudi White phosphorous, a Stop Arming Saudi image, and an image of the efforts to silence critics of Israel]

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]

Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 16.50.25.png

[Image via Twitter from a now deleted Facebook post of interview given by Bhai Mohan Singh on LBC with Katie Hopkins]

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]

Rick Ross.jpeg

[Image via Huffington Post]

!!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!

UK Home Office: Hate Crimes, Jewish Exceptionalism, and Inequality Under the Law

17 Jul

[Published 17 July, 2017, Updated 25 July, 2017]

In late 2015, the UK Government announced a £13.4m grant of taxpayers money, to fund the work of the Community Security Trust (CST), “for security measures, including security guards, at Jewish independent and state schools, colleges and nurseries, synagogues and other community sites, and will be managed by CST.”

CST, calls itself ‘the UK’s security and hate crimes monitoring organisation for members of the British Jewish community.’ It was founded by the prolific and corrupt, money-laundering and tax avoiding, property investment and business entrepreneur, Gerald Maurice Ronson, CBE.

The announcement of the grant, was made by then Prime Minister, David Cameron – a granted that was facilitated by Sir Eric Pickles, the former Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government – whose most recent roles include; being a paid advisor to CST for ‘undisclosed activities’, the Chair of the Conservative Friends of Israel – and now a government role as the ‘Special Envoy to Israel.’

cameron.jpeg

The grant was briefly put on hold, until Cameron left public office – to avoid exposure of his business and financial dealings, but reaffirmed by the former Home Secretary and now current Prime Minister, Theresa May, in March 2016 – at a fundraising gala dinner, organised by CST and sponsored by Deloitte.

Home-Secretary-Theresa-May-at-the-CST-dinner-with-Gerald-Ronson-and-Chief-Rabbi-Ephraim-Mirvis

In March 2017, at the same fundraising gala attended by May, the current Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, also reaffirmed: “We [the Government] will be continuing the funding of the Jewish community protective security grant… for 2017 to 2018.” Adding that she, [Rudd], believed that there is, or was, a ‘significant’ jihadi threat to their [Jewish] safety in the UK.

C56TLrPWMAAB2TA.jpg

The remote possibility of a jihadi ‘threat’ [against British Jews] is exactly that… it is pure fantasy, that was purposely orchestrated and amplified by CST itself. It is, of course, a completely unfounded, fabrication and nonsense! The purpose of which, is to maintain the notion of Jewish privilege and exceptionalism as Chosenites.

As evidence of which, one only need take a look at Hansard, on CST’s own website, and its Twitter account. In particular, CST’s recent misleading reporting of hoax bomb threats to British Jewish schools and institutions.

As this story unfolded, the truth of the matter was, that these bomb threats were actually made by an Israeli, using “sophisticated technology”, to hide and maintain his anonymity.

He made in excess of 2000 hoax bomb threat phone calls before being caught, in at least 10 countries. Rather than admit any facts, the Israeli Government have declared him ‘mentally ill’, than admit any involvement or wrongdoing.

Prior to his identification and capture by US authorities, in January 2017, CST posted: “27 Jewish centres in the USA evacuated after bomb threats; Last week CST dealt with several threats to Jewish schools.” On several occasions, over the same period, CST also, wrongly, blamed a Black man for these same hoax bomb threats against the global Jewish community.

Aside, although the threat of experiencing acts of Jew hatred may well have increased in recent years, there is absolutely no existential threat of an act of terrorism, against British Jews, on British soil, that warrants such favouritism by the British Government, over and above the threat of such an attack, or act of hatred and abuse, experienced by any other minority religious or ethnic group in the UK!

It is a complete and utter manipulation and deception by CST, to even suggest that there is!

Again, as the evidence bears out, hate crimes towards British Jews have actually decreased overall and are far less violent, whereas abuse in general and violent attacks against members of BAME communities, refugees, and LGBTI+ communities have significantly increased. 

The fact of the matter is, that in capitulating to CST’s deliberately false and pervasive narrative, of an ‘imminent [Jihadi] attack’ on British Jews, the UK government has wilfully ignored the more prevalent and increasing abuse and hatred toward other, equally, if not more deserving, minority communities.

Without doubt, the grant, of £13.4 million, given to CST – has been given without due regard to any proper assessment, accountability, or consideration of the greater need of any other minority groups – experiencing a more significant issue of abuse and hatred.

The Home Office has thus far refused all requests to disclose any information with regard to how the grant was solicited, by whom, any audit trail or required documentation, monitoring and evaluation, breakdown of expenditure, purpose or outcomes.

If one considers the official government and police data [on increases in hate crimes], on which groups – are most likely to be subjected to abuse, attacks, and hatred, or similar threats – members of the British Jewry are at the bottom of the scale, yet receive greater privilege and favouritism more than any other groups.

What have these other groups – who are indeed statistically and evidentially in greater need – in regard to provision, support, and intervention been given or provided with?

The answer, is merely ‘access’ to a small proportion of a £1 million funding pot. That British Jews should receive more support from the UK Government, than the murdered members of the LGBTI+ community; Muslims who have been subjected to acid attacks and run over outside mosque for prayers; or refugees and immigrants relentlessly abused murdered in the streets?

In favouring CST, over other groups monitoring and challenging hatred and abuse, all that the UK government has done, is dismiss the rights of those in greater need, and pander to the view of Jewish victimhood and exceptionalism, which works to ferment and increasing resentment of Jews in general. 

As it stands, the fact that CST is the sole recipient of such a significant grant goes against all current British laws and principles and values for fairness and equality under the law.

Zionist Lobby: Tim Farron, Liberal Democrats Party Leader, and the Sacking of David Ward, MP

27 Apr

[Published May 2017]

 

On the 26 April, 2017, Tim Farron, leader of the UK Liberal Democrats, announced on Twitter that he had ‘sacked’ David Ward from the party.

Initially, Farron was reported as having stated that he was unable to intervene in local party politics or selection processes. Ward was to stand for election in the parliamentary seat of Bradford East on the 08 June, 2017.

However, after pressure from Sir Eric Pickles, the UK’s Special Envoy to Israel and Chair of Conservative Friends of Israel, and the ‘behind-the-scenes’ intervention of the nefarious and meddling Campaign Against AntiSemitism (CAA), Farron decided to do an extraordinary u-turn, calling Ward ‘unfit to stand and represent the Party.

Ward is known to be very critical of the apartheid state of Israel and his comments have been somewhat hard-hitting and possibly unpleasant to some sensitive ears. For example, the year before Israel’s Protective Edge slaughtered more than 2,400 Palestinian including 500 children with the illegal use of White Phosphorus, Ward said:

“Am I wrong or are am I right? At long last the Zionists are losing the battle – how long can the apartheid State of Israel last?”

 

Prior to Farron’s u-turn on the matter, Mark Wallace, editor of Conservative Home, called his decision not to sack Ward “bullshit”. Not content with attacking Farron, Wallace then went on a tirade of abuse aimed at Ward, saying: “maybe fuck-off now, you weapons-grade scumbag” and posting a link to his blog about him.

Sadly, Wallace is under some illusion (a spell or cognitive dissonance?) and claims Ward’s comments about the insidiousness of Zionism, the Lobby, and Israel’s persistent Human Rights abuses amount to racism.

Possibly knowing that he or a colleague would be attending a meeting with the Liberal Democrats to discuss Ward, Stephen “Slitherman” Silverman, director of prosecutions and investigations for CAA, and a known harasser of women, was on hand to comment on Wallace’s abuse, suggesting he already knew what would happen to Ward.

Screen Shot 2017-04-27 at 15.25.58.png

 

Slitherman and CAA also enlisted the assistance of Martin Greig, a Liberal Democrat councillor in Scotland, the day before the announcement of Ward’s sacking.

Greig offered to intervene and act as go-between between CAA and the Liberal Democrats in a separate matter. As you can see in the above screenshot, CAA asked Greig to contact them by email regarding the meeting to discuss Ward as well as others matters.

We can reasonably assume, therefore, that Ward’s sacking was as a direct consequence and outcome of CAA’s meeting with the Liberal Democrats, Pickles challenging Farron in Parliament; and perhaps to a lesser extent, Greig’s role as an intermediary.

CAA was set up as a fake charity in 2014 by Gideon Falter after Israel’s Operation Protective Edge assault on Gaza. As stated earlier, Protective Edge massacred 2,400 Palestinians to further Israel’s efforts to legitimise its suppression of the Palestinian peoples’ right to self-determination and illegal expansionism and occupation of Palestine.

By lobbying in this way, to sack a member of a political party and prevent him from standing as a member of parliament, CAA is in fact in breach of charity law, as charity law clearly prevents such lobbying.

In addition, as it would appear that CAA is very much involved in lobbying activities, there is also a legal requirement for it to be registered as a lobbying organisation.

Notably, the charity, Greenpeace, was recently fined £30,000 for refusing to register as a lobbying organisation.

Screen Shot 2017-04-27 at 16.12.32.png

 

There is currently no evidence to confirm that CAA is also registered as a lobbying organisation, so it is also in breach of its requirement to register under the Administration Act of 2014.

CAA is part of an offensive to shut down any form of debate, criticism, or challenge to Israel’s Human Rights abuses and illegal occupation and ongoing settlement expansion programme. It is directly linked to the World Zionist Organisation and has been tasked specifically with the purpose of shutting down free speech in Britain under the guise of false claims of antiSemitism.

It also actively seeks to impose a definition of antiSemitism which prohibits any criticism of Israel and comparison of Israel to the Nazis or an apartheid/ fascist state.

CAA also actively lobbied for the expulsion of Baroness Jenny Tonge from the Liberal Democrats Party.

The Future of UK Labour: Why Jeremy Corbyn Must Go

14 Feb

labourFar from being a hypocrite, I have always stated that Corbyn is an interim party leader.

Despite protestations from anti Corbynista or Corbynite naysayers, I have never believed that he has either the gravitas or image to be a world leader.

He appeals to my values, but I consider him to be simply too bland and aloof and never quite on the ball or in the loop. If not also too harsh, Corbyn reminds me of the person who arrives at the party when it’s just finished and everyone is leaving.

I am certain, however, that he is thoroughly principled and humanitarian, in his values and politics, and that is what attracts me to him. But in the politics of today, being principled will never be enough to win hearts and minds, without presence and some charisma.

It is with sadness that his convictions and principles just aren’t enough to sate today’s often ill-informed, MSM-influenced, and style-over-substance electorate. I also do not believe he is capable of winning over new voters. He is viewed as too left-wing, which is why he is bête noire to many on the right.

Rather like an obese father, too lazy to fetch his own slippers, Corbyn must go; first, because he did very little or nothing to support the remain campaign in the Brexit vote. In fact, he was hardly anywhere to be seen.

It’s true that politics are also fickle; but also, that Corbyn genuinely seems to shy away from the public eye, and he most certainly does not like journalists, TV cameras and MSM.

But can we blame him when more than 70% of the coverage they print and report about him is all negative?

No, of course not!

In Corbyn’s favour on Brexit, there are some suggestions his own party supporters conspired against him to ensure he couldn’t campaign. If so, we can also blame the lack of positive media coverage by Murdoch’s imposed blackout on him and the factory of negative briefings churned out against him by the Number 10 press office, as they did with his predecessor, Ed Miliband.

Just as they did with Ed in 2015, Labour supporters turned their back on Corbyn and the remain campaign, largely due to orchestrated fears, played out by leave campaigners around ‘foreigners invading our country and taking our jobs’ and ‘an unelected EU taking our money, and making our laws.’

Corbyn failed to do a single thing to enlighten, inform, or change the minds of those even from within his own party wanting to leave the European Union.

Neither was he, or those close to him, it appears, aware of just how big the swell to vote leave would turn out to be.

Rightly, Corbyn recognised the benefits of EU membership (to protect trade, investment, the environment, farming, our freedoms and rights), but he failed to convey this to supporters, and seemed completely unconcerned about the potential outcomes of not doing so.

Importantly, it goes to show just how out of touch he is; with the values, and expectations, of young people, traditional Labour voters, & his own grass roots supporters. It was as if he was either purposely asleep at the wheel, or derelict in his duty. That, or his chauffeur drove him in the wrong direction.

It is also clear to me that his deliberate, almost conceited unwillingness to engage in public debate, has helped in his undoing. He also now appears to be proving himself to be an autocratic leader, who is dismissive of the valid criticisms of his failure to lead, rightly laid at his feet.

At the start of his leadership of the party, he had already removed several of his detractors from their shadow leadership roles, informing the press that he isn’t going anywhere. This is arrogant and dictatorial of him. Perhaps also a red rag to bull. You don’t remove someone just because you don’t get on with him or her, or they don’t like you, especially if they are good and effective at what they do.

Corbyn should have been more diplomatic, statesman-like, and proactively sought to galvanise and inspire his party and supporters. In sum, well below the expectations of an effective opposition leader and he has shown neither foresight nor strategy. All of these have served to harm Labour’s future and counter the destructive efforts to diminish rights and privatise everything, as is the current course of the incumbent party.

As Brexit unfolds and becomes more clear, right-wing supporters in the Tory party will slowly repeal the laws that were agreed by all EU member states and designed and enacted, primarily to protect citizens from exploitation and and greater inequality. Without a doubt, things will become worse for the majority, but minorities in particular. We can see the beginnings of this already being evident in the resurgence of the Far Right and increases racism.

Corbyn’s inaction has effectively given the likes of Gove, Hunt, May et al, carte blanche, to repeal the HRA, DPA, FoIA, worker’s rights, privatise the National Health Service & more.

Perhaps more worrying, is that Theresa May is worse. Well, of course she is, especially as it is her clear intention to carry on where Margaret Thatcher left off. But what she lacks in ability and confidence as a sheepish head of state, is masked by her image and taste for designer clothing. More importantly, her longer term aims to diminish what few rights we have remaining. 

As little thanks, we can take small comfort in the fact that the UK Independence Party that began much of this is now disintegrating from within.

Doh! UK Zionist Lobby Exposes The Zionist Lobby

24 Jan

 

Earlier today, on the 24 January 2017, the Times of Israel published an article penned by Justin Cohen, one of its News Editors.

The article concerns the recent 4-part undercover documentary conducted by Al-Jazeera; to expose – what can only be described, as the seriously seditious activities of Shai Masot at the behest of the Israeli government – to undermine British politics and democracy – including attempts at removing political opponents, like Sir Alan Duncan and Jeremy Corbyn – who are deemed to be obstacles and therefore incompatible with Israel’s aspirations and long-term goals.

Despite a public outcry and requests made by members of opposition parties – thus far, the PM, Theresa May, and the rest of her government – have categorically refused all calls for a public inquiry into the extent and scale of the role of Israeli government, its officials, actors, and diplomats, attempting to subvert and influence British democracy, favourably to Israel’s goals.

It is self-evident in Cohen’s article, that neither members of the UK Jewry, nor the Israeli government itself, are particularly happy about Al-Jazeera’s far-reaching expose of the tactics that the Israeli government is willing to employ and the lengths it is willing to go in order to push its expansionist agenda.

When Al-Jazeera’s expose was first aired – many (if not all) members of the Jewish diaspora, were unequivocally dismissive, and frankly insouciant – about the gravity of such nefarious interference of a foreign state (Israel) in another state’s (UK) sovereign powers – to independently and democratically, determine what its approach to and its foreign policy should entail. I dare say some were even apoplectic.

After Shai Masot was caught out in his candid admission of state-sanctioned and funded covert operations, to undermine British foreign and domestic policy, a prominent member of the UK Jewry, Jonathan Hoffman – who is a former Bank of England official – recently saw fit to use his own influence, to complain to members of the UK Parliament and House of Commons – seeking that Al-Jazeera be reprimanded for exposing something that is in all our interests to know and be aware of.

And guess what happened, folks?

Yes, you guessed it right!

The British government, like a compliant and pathetic lap dog rolling over on its back for its master, has happily kow-towed and will consider acting on Hoffman’s demands for it to reprimand Al-Jazeera.

(Now just for clarity, Theresa May, please remind us who your ‘Mamma’ is?)

 

Recently, Mr Hoffman, has let it be known, that anyone who speaks out against what many consider to be a rogue and terrorist state, its plans for expansion, or its human rights abuses, should automatically be considered an enemy of the Jewish diaspora and Israel itself.

Hoffman has made clear (in a recent Facebook post) that all dissenters should be discredited by “shining a light on the dissenter”, as opposed to “whispers to discredit them”.

(It appears that Mr Hoffman has since deleted or altered his Facebook account, attempting to disprove that he made these comments, but screenshots were obtained, prior to deletion).

You can also see Jonathan Hoffman in action here:

 

If, for some bizarre reason, you do not consider Mr Hoffman’s efforts to be a clear example and therefore somewhat of a confirmation of the existence of the Israeli/ Zionist lobby in action and its efforts to influence foreign democracies in its favour, one might wish to have a rethink about that.

Clearly, Mr Hoffman’s personal interventions, as a respected member of the Jewish establishment in the UK, to seek punitive measures against Al-Jazeera – for merely exposing the truth regarding Israel’s sedition – should be considered nothing short of an attempt at coercion or undue influence. In the very least, ‘crying foul’ or claiming ‘but that’s not fair’, when you have been caught out doing the deed.

In the last few days the Campaign Against AntiSemitism (CAA), a so-called UK-based charity, that is known to use legal means to silence Israel’s critics, has also decided to flex its muscles, by lodging a formal complaint against Al-Jazeera with the Broadcasting Regulator, OFCOM.

Amongst many other accusations, CAA’s complaint claims that Al-Jazeera’s expose is “mendacious”, “inaccurate”, amounting to “unfair treatment” (of Masot?), and even “promot(ing) incitement”. CAA is also seeking to force or impose upon OFCOM for it to use and adopt a definition of antiSemitism that is widely disputed, because it infringes on universal rights of free speech, expression, assembly and protest.

In making these complaints, the wider agenda of Hoffman and CAA here, is, once and for all, to finally criminalise any and all criticism of Israel’s persistent human rights abuses and illegal occupation of Palestinians and further expansion into settlements. All of which, not doubt, could not happen without the direction, influence, and input of Israel itself.

Talk about shooting yourself and your cause in the foot, by trying to silence critics and, in actuality only serving to prove the ‘conspiracy’ of the ‘Lobby’ to be true by your own actions and interventions, Mr Hoffman and CAA?

Now, if you are reading this and you are in any way concerned – as any vaguely intelligent person should be – regarding any foreign state unduly influencing your own government’s sovereignty, you should sign this petition.

It seems clear and simple: Zionism is racism and a truly subversive element in world politics, that may well be to the detriment of all humankind!

Does the Zionist Lobby Really Exist?

20 Dec

 

Ask yourself, does the Zionist lobby really exist?

If it does, is it Jewhate or antiSemitic, to say that it does?

In short, the answer is both ‘Yes’ to the first part; and ‘No’, to the second!

Yes, the ‘lobby’ does exist; and ‘No’, it is not – by any means – antiSemitic or Jewhate (as it should be called), to say so!

The very fact that members of the Global Jewish diaspora, Zionists and supporters of, and the Israeli government itself, are currently applying strong-arm and subversive (international) pressure; to silence – any and all – dissent, and criticism against the state of Israel – via means of lobbying sovereign governments – and; more recently, bringing private prosecutions, against historical revisionists, or those who support the BDS movement and/ or who condemn or challenge Israel’s war crimes against Palestinians – is, frankly, evidence enough.

That these ‘nefarious’ groups and individuals – who, less than 100 years ago, sought to lobby the British and US governments, to support the legitimisation of the illegal annexation and occupation of Palestine (via the Balfour declaration and Havaara agreement) – and then the subsequent lobbying of the United Nations; to decriminalise Zionism, as a form of racism – as was led and orchestrated by B’Nai B’Rith, the oldest advocacy organisation for Jewish supremacy – is an anathema, and further evidence of their existence and such activities.

To be clear, it was European Jews who set up the world’s modern banking system- yes, of course they along with other (non Jewish) merchant financiers and ‘nobles’ – who funded the beginnings of global trade, British imperialism and also supported the continuation of slavery and two subsequent wars in 20th century Europe.

(Note: Until the establishment of the modern banking system, money lending was forbidden by Christians and Muslims).

 

Indeed, it was none other than a singular, profiteering, Nat Meyer Rothschild  (one of the founding fathers of Zionism and the establishment of Israel) and a family member and business partner – one August Belmont, also Jewish, of German origin – who, via the Rothschilds’ New York office – vehemently fought against the British government and Abraham Lincoln, to abolish slavery – in order to protect the former’s financial and business interests.

In case you are somehow – stupidly, and bizarrely, ignorant and unaware – it was, in point of fact, only because of successive boycotts of the sale and purchase of goods, like cotton and coffee – that the slave trade; and subsequent indenture system, of Afrikans – ever came to an end. It was Nat Rothschild himself who raised the finances to compensate – yes, ‘compensate’ – slave and plantation owners.

(Oh noes, boycotting Israel, for its crimes against humanity, is antiSemitic. Cough)!

 

As Jonathan Hoffman, a former Bank of England official, recently stated in a Facebook comment;

“Why shout when you can whisper”.

 

This quote, by Hoffman, is apparently a tactic used by Court Jews (Marranos); on how to ruin, and to condemn their critics and perceived enemies.

On the contrary, Hoffman actually believes:

“shining a sunlight on such dissenters”,  rather than whispers about them.

How noble of him!

 

(Note: No one, should ever doubt the suffering of Jews; certainly not me, as I am an individual of Afrikan and Jewish ancestry. I regularly receive abuse (on social media) for being ghey – mostly about my HIV status – and the fact that I am also often called a ‘nigger’ and a ‘self-loathing Jew’ (due to my Grandfather’s heritage) – you can guess who abuses me for the latter)!

 

Aside, in the UK, the organisation, recently founded and run by one Robert Festenstein, of Jewish Human Rights Watch has failed, miserably, to outlaw the BDS movement, as a valid form of freedom of expression, and dissent against criminal regimes, like Israel.

Similarly, the woeful Campaign Against AntiSemitism (CAA), led by the odious, spot-nosed and vexatious Gideon Falter, has so far, failed – despite his/ its continued efforts to suppress freedom of speech in the UK – and has had to resort to private prosecutions, in order to criminalise any form of public dissent against Israel.

I, am now apparently one of its targets. Needless to say, any claims or charges laid against me, will ultimately fail; as I can substantiate everything I say!

(Because of his threats against me about the fact that I dare to have the affront to make a challenge against him and speak out against the lobby; Gideon has decided to target me. It is because of these threats that, he is now subject to civil and criminal complaints, for harassment).

Gideon’s so-called ‘charitable’ organisation, is nothing more than a sham, attempting to subvert UK law, by means of bullying, threats, and coercion. This fact has been reported to the Charity Commission.

Any further attempts (by Gideon, CAA, or its ‘volunteers’) to harass or vilify me will be dealt with, severely.

Only recently, Gideon’s CAA, applauded Theresa May’s decision, to suggest that criticism of Israel, is antiSemitic; and therefore a punishable offence.You can see a link on their website and Facebook page.

This would be like allowing the government of Saudi to go unquestioned, regarding the cluster bombs it has used (that are in fact supplied by the UK) to target innocent Yemenis; or Mugabe’s regime, and its efforts to silence his critics and oust White Afrikans, from their adopted and purchased lands in Zimbabwe. Equally, allowing the faux White Helmets (founded by a British military officer) – or Syrian Observatory for Human Rights – to even remotely pretend that they are in any way humanitarian in their purpose.

As for the Community Security Trust (CST) – another nefarious organisation – which is currently being investigated by the Charity Commission, HMRC, and other public bodies – for its financial irregularities, which is also accused of having links to Mossad. CST uses its position to influence and leverage funding from the British government, at the expense of other minority groups who have suffered greater harm and abuse.

For example, in March 2016, CST secured £13.4m of taxpayers’ funding, to secure Jewish schools and places of worship. Yes, the Jewish community has and continues to be targeted by certain pervasive elements, but the vast majority of CST’s figures, for recorded abuse and attacks, have taken place online.

This is insignificant, in comparison to the murders, attacks, and abuse of other minority groups. Have any of these groups received any (UK) government funding or support? The answer is, NO! So why should CST and members of the Jewish community receive special protection? The narrative is simply; “We are the only ones who are being oppressed and discriminated against; We are the Chosenites”!

All of the above organisations have active and professional business links, to the Israeli government and politically active B’Nai B’Rith, as well as the World Zionist Organisation, which was founded and is run by Eitan Behar.

Here is what Eitan has to say about criticism of Israel on the WZO website:

“Our multilingual team of interns uses social networking to monitor, track and expose Antisemitic statements and expressions. We aim to give people like you the tools needed to counter and report anti-Jewish bigotry wherever and whenever it occurs. As proud Jews and Zionists, we publicly act to confront prejudice and demand an end to hateful messages.”

 

Interestingly, the pernicious and racist, Ambrosine Shitrit, of the socalled antihate org,  Eye On AntiSemitism, recently posted on social media, that she had a meeting with Eitan Behar, to discuss combatting valid criticism of Israel.

The purpose of her meeting with Eitan Behar was to discuss strategy to target individuals, like myself, and how to lobby and influence the UK government to criminalise holocaust revisionism/ ists, and the boycotting of Israeli goods.

She is quite blatant about her efforts on social media, and so is her hatred of Muslims and Palestinians. All information of these efforts is available on her Facebook pages and the World Zionist Organisation website.

Mrs. Shitrit has also posted numerous defamatory comments about me and even resorted to setting up a fake email account in my name. She is also a fan of the banned Pam Geller and other alt-Reich club members; and has an unhealthy interest in myself and Alison Chabloz, who is now subject to a private prosecution brought by Gideon Falter and CAA to silence freedom of speech in the UK.

Today, and with the blessing of our co-opted governments, the Zionist lobby, is attempting to stifle our freedom of speech. Indeed, it is Zionism, that; in part, promotes dislike of Jews. Why? Because since its inception, Zionism has always served to establish, create, and legitimise a state ofIsrael and its occupation of Palestinian lands and illegal settlements.

By which I mean, by any means necessary!

As noted by Theodor Herzl:

wp-1482356908867.jpg

Or a quote by Maurice Samuel, in his 1924 ‘You Gentiles’, in which he states that ‘Jews are the destroyers’… and that: ‘Nothing that you (Gentiles) do will meet our needs’.

This isn’t evidence enough of the Zionist lobby’s existence?

Go and search out the fly-on-the-wall documentary, floating around on Youtube, in the which the director of ADL National says to camera:”How do we use the myth of the lobby without confirming its existence”. Then he laughs.

As Chair, Gideon’s CAA, along with other pro-Israel voices, have successfully lobbied Eric Pickles, MP and the British government to adopt a new, more stringent definition of antiSemitism, which states that, boycotting Israel and criticising Israel should also be considered antiSemitic. In law, it has no legal basis, but has been issued as guidance to the UK Crown Prosecution Service.

It would be in breach of Human Rights law if it were ever applied.

You can see evidence of Gideon’s efforts, here.

If this isn’t further evidence of lobbying for ‘self-interest for and by a particular group’, what is?

Here, in this following link of a speech given by a UK Peer, in the House of Lords, you can hear how the Zionist Lobby physically beats dissenters unconscious, ladels persistent and false accusations of antiSemitism, and proactively seeks to damage individual careers and reputations.

 

If you speak about it in reference to Zionists or Jews, you are automatically accused of antiSemitism. This is part of their strategy. I referred to it above, from a quote by Jonathan Hoffman:“shining a sunlight on such dissenters”.

It’s called character assassination and, more covertly, ‘full spectrum dominance‘ – which is a form of control, that is more often than not – used to humiliate, defame, ruin and ostracise individuals, who dissent or deviate from the norm of the tripe that we are spoon-fed on a daily basis.

Here’s Gideon’s CAA encouraging (((its))) supporters to ruin the respected Jewish journalist, Mira-Bar Hillel:

 

As referenced above, on its website, the World Zionist organisation clearly states that it will circulate information and expose individuals to its global networks.

Shining a light? Whispers? Are you getting this now? And its somehow antiSemitic or an expression of hatred of Jews to say the lobby really exists, really??

 

Note: I have never disliked or expressed hatred towards Jews, but they, like Shitrit, have and continue to do towards me. I find the abuse I regularly receive, gut-wrenching and profoundly frustrating, but I will stand by their right to say it (about me), unless it breaches my privacy, copyright, or it is incitement.

All of these matters against several individuals are currently under police investigation.

Donald Trump: A Walking Disaster

9 Nov

When I say disaster, I mean it!

Trump is a documented serial bankrupt, an alleged paedophile and rapist, an out and out racist and homophobe, and a proud misogynist who even lusted after his own daughter on live television.

I don’t need to back up any of these claims, as the evidence is already out there.

Trump won because those who voted him in — largely White, uneducated, gun-toting, religious rednecks and coffin-dodgers — did so, to stick one to the establishment and on a clearly racist anti-immigration ticket.

This was coupled with the outrage of the bible-bashers upset with LGBTI rights laws, Muslims, the Black Lives Matter movement, and the economic woes of every day batshit American lives. 

The right-wing media gleefully did its part to feed into and stoked much of this hatefilled and vitriolic clusterfuck.

Like the humorons who voted for Brexit in the UK with their ‘little island’ mentality who are supporters of racist UKIP et al, the Moricons — by which I mean wilfully moronic, fuck-nugget Americans, in case you don’t understand what the term implies — who voted for Trump see themselves as having more rights and privilege over anyone else they do not consider one of them.

Want examples?

The KKK, the American Nazi Party, and the White Nationalist American Freedom Party, all endorsed Trump, as did the many evangelical organizations.

Well, here is what Trump is going to do, or seek to do:

  • Repeal equality laws for Black and other minority people, including the LGBTI community.
  • Strengthen religious freedom to discriminate against each of the above groups.
  • Repeal Obama’s healthcare bill that currently protects 62 million people on low incomes.
  • Forcibly deport and intern Latinos and Muslims.
  • Introduce greater protections for law enforcement officers who shoot down unarmed members of the public to allow them to escape scrutiny and justice in many cases.
  • Remove the rights of Native Americans to protect their homelands and property, which will include sending in military to forcibly remove them, even in a body bag.
  • Increase pollution and global warming by removing current legislation and granting no strings licenses to big corporations to produce more coal and frack without any consideration to local residents or the environment.
  • Make abortion illegal, even for rape victims, in favour of demented fucktard Xtian zealots.

With Trump in the driving seat of one of the world’s leading and most powerful economies, these are just a few of the things that are likely to get the go ahead.

Don’t even get me started on the American economy. It’s already on its arse; by which I mean dirt broke. Yes, that’s right, America is bankrupt; both morally and financially! Not a pot to piss in! Tanking! Living on borrowed time!

Doubt me?

In case you were wondering, there are now more than 10 major American cities that have filed for bankruptcy since Wall Street and lacks financial control caused the 2000, 2007 & 2008 crashes that resonated across and still impact on the world to this day. Many other American cities are in prolonged deficit and the housing market is still on its arse.

America is the most indebted country in the world, to the tune of 19,643,000,000,000 dollars. That is more than all the other most indebted countries in the world combined. Its trade deficit is equally as bad, and there is nothing Trump can do.

What about checks and balances, you may ask? They won’t work. America’s political system of lobbying, bribes, and favours, is one of the most corrupt in the world. Besides, Trump’s supporters and the humorons who voted for him would lynch him if he doesn’t carry out his promises.

Only today, on the announcement of his election, the dollar dropped again. It will drop further. The example below is proof.

[Image via Twitter]

World markets have also slumped but are recovering, unlike America.

Yes, America, you can expect recession and a deep depression like no other! Ultimately, Americans will suffer more than they have ever before. The rest of the world will also feel it but will recover more quickly.

Trump’s only solution is quantitative easing, which will devalue the dollar further, thus increasing inflation, damaging the markets such as structured products, depressing interest rates which impacts on savings and pensions, and international trade.

(China has previously stopped exporting valuable minerals to the U.S. due to its quantitative easing program).

Already world leaders are sending warning shots to Trump.

As my neighbour’s 11 year old daughter said today: “Mummy, the world is doomed! What are we going to do? Can someone assassinate him?”

Despite my equally negative views of Hillary, I would have to agree with this girl’s conclusions.

America is well and truly fucked!

Remembering Victims of Holocaust: A Memorial for One or All?

29 Sep

As part of an address to British Jewish communities, former PM, David Cameron, pledged that the UK Government would fund a memorial in remembrance of the mainly Jewish victims of World War 2.

The memorial is to be sited in Victoria Tower Gardens, next to Parliament.

Since the announcement, plans for the memorial are now expected to include a learning centre, for school groups and visitors to London.

A competition was recently announced for the design of the memorial, including plans for the learning centre.

If it does not run over budget, the whole project is expected to cost around £50 million, largely paid for by the British taxpayer.

As noted in the Mirror, ‘UK Holocaust Memorial Foundation chairman, Sir Peter Bazalgette, said: “The task of the Holocaust Memorial Foundation was to find a site that would allow a striking, prominent and iconic memorial to be built.”‘

In effect, the memorial and learning centre, will become Britain’s answer to Auschwitz and the Anne Frank Museum.

Understandably, a number of individuals, including myself have voiced concerns. Some, rightly or wrongly, now consider it an industry.

For me, as I will explain, I do not believe that there has ever been only one holocaust, but that there have been many holocausts, of equal significance, and equal worthiness of commemorating the victims of.

Indeed, when I asked Olivia Marks-Woldman, CEO of the Holocaust Memorial Trust, ‘why can we not have a universal memorial and learning centre to remember all holocausts not just one?’

Her response was, because the ‘Holocaust’ was unique.’

(I’ve since emailed her to clarify this profound and exceptional differentiating statement, but I am yet to receive a response or acknowledgement).

 

Sorry, not sorry! No one event in our wretched histories that ‘qualifies’ as a holocaust/ genocide, is no less, or more unique or significant than any other similar event in history.

To imply that it (WWII) is deserving of  uniqueness, only serves to diminish the other (such catastrophic events, in our shared histories) and asserts privilege of one group of victims (of such events) and the suffering (and heinous acts committed against one group) over another.

As Jackie Walker, of the UK Labour party’s Momentum group recently noted — and was subsequently on the receiving end of a tremendous amount of unwarranted vitriol from Jewish media for stating — the term ‘Holocaust’ is not a term that is the preserve or monopoly of Jews alone (paraphrased).

Indeed. Jews were not the only victims of World War 2.

In case you do not know/ have forgotten, many members of Roma, Polish, Muslims, LGBT, and other communities were victims too.

Clearly, a £50 million memorial, solely for the remembrance of Jewish victims of World War 2, simply reinforces ideas of (Jewish) privilege and victimhood, thus reinforcing negative stereotypes and prejudicial resentment of Jews.

Here is a list of Holocausts in recent times:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genocides_in_history

 

The term ‘Holocaust’ does not, nor has it ever done, belonged solely to members of the Jewish community.

The term ‘holocaust’  was only adopted as such, in the 1950’s, after World War 2.

(The term ‘Holocaust’, in its original meaning, refers to sacred burning or sacrifice.)

 

It was first used in terms of genocide by John Milton in the 17th century.

If we are to remember ALL our dead, at the hands of bastards, murderers, and maniacal dictators, and learn from such past atrocities, committed by and against humankind, what we should have, is one memorial, and one learning centre, to remember all victims of all holocaust and genocidal acts.

It is my view, that we should (all) universally unite in our mourning, condemnation, and determination to say: Never Again!

A very recent study I have conducted confirms that such a memorial should not be attributed to Jews alone.

Why?

Because it devalues and assigns all other victims of holocaust to second status.
