I see that the old Saddam Hussain lover and MP George Galloway has called for Bradford to be “declared an Israel-free zone” and that these comments are being investigated by West Yorkshire Police. I suspect that the next suggestion made by Mr Galloway will be to create some special areas for Jews, I think that during WW2 these were often referred to as “ghettos” (begin to ring a bell?). As a fully paid up supporter of Hamas no doubt he will have signed up to the declared intent of Hamas to “destroy Israel so that it no longer exists” (see Hamas charter) and that “all Jews should be killed”
Galloway is well known for jumping onto any “muslim bandwagon” so that he ingratiates himself with the muslim community in Bradford. As an aside, I note that not one demonstration has been held by muslims and their “leftie supporters” against the genocide being committed by muslims against the “religious minorities (read non-muslims for that) in Iraq. But no doubt we will be told again that Islam is the religion of peace.
The propaganda being pumped out by the media against Israel, and the BBC is the main culprit here, is disgraceful. I hear this morning that Hamas have refused to extend the ceasefire and will resume firing rockets into Israel, who had pushed for an extension of the ceasefire.
But no, Hamas want more civilian casulaties because it serves their purpose in the propoganda war. They will go on placing their rocket launchers in schools, hospitals and mosques to draw the inevitable Israeli response. Hamas rockets have been found stashed in three UN-run schools. A senior UN official, John Ging, has said Hamas “are firing their rockets into Israel from the vicinity of UN facilities and residential areas”.
Shifa hospital acts as a Hamas command centre. Reporters know this, as they often conduct interviews there with Hamas spokesmen. Yet this detail is generally denied to the public. Nor are the public informed about rocket fire from that hospital. A Finnish journalist was a lone exception when she recently reported that a rocket was launched from the hospital’s parking lot.
Such war crimes aren’t usually publicised because reporters work under an implicit threat. One Spanish journalist admitted: “We did see Hamas people launching rockets close to our hotel, but if ever we dared point our camera on them they would simply shoot at us and kill us.”
I will leave you with this sobering thought from the The Spectator journalist Mathew d’Ancona who said in an extended article from which i quote:
“Israel is bigger than Gaza and the West Bank, but it is smaller than almost everywhere else. Less than a century old, it is a democracy surrounded by hostile nations and under permanent attack by terrorists who wish to see it wiped from the surface of the Earth. What is a “proportionate” response to a hydra-like enemy who sees the Final Solution as work in progress? All terrorism aimed at Israel is genocidal in spirit. What would a “proportionate” response to that ambition look like?”
