Loony Labour MP’s Echoes of Galloway

The sheer idiocy of some of those who inexplicably manage to find themselves sat in the Commons never ceases to amaze Guido. Step forward Labour MP Yasmin Qureshi, who took to twitter yesterday to air her views on the Israel-Palestine conflict:

Apparently those Iranian made 21-foot long Fajr-5 rockets, which carry 90kg of explosives and can be fired from up to 75 kilometres, have been put together by some amateur in a Gaza back yard. Crazy Qureshi then went on to tweet a link to Stalinist Hamas apologist Seamus Milne’s pathetic piece today about how he wants “a change in the balance of forces on the ground”. Qureshi is the MP for Bolton South East. Gorgeous George would be proud…

            The Palestinian rockets are pretty useless.

            Israel has better/smarter armaments.

            The people of Gaza are not mourning their dead.
            It is a pretty shameful thing when you have beaten a population into that state.

          According to many lefties Hamas = nice people who never threw opponents of high rise roofs before the election and who for months have been sat tapping away at old baked bean tins and mixing black powder from discarded fireworks to make rockets and launching them against Israel, whilst Israel who suffered many rocket hits from Gaza launched Iranian made rockets for many months are the ones who are nasty.
          Hamas are just one part of the Iranian military, Hezbollah is another and I hope the IDF dish out serious hurt to Hamas and their evil ways.

    “All twenty four of them?” she asked.

    I said, “Yeah, take a look at his windows.”

      The BBC employs a man called Jihad says:

      The BBC has all the real facts, what they lack is the moral centre to show the public just what savages Israel is dealing with. If the public was shown clearly what kind of cowardly savages the hamas gangsters really are the public would be 100% behind Israel. The BBC have come a long way from Auntie to fanatical supporter of child abusing women abusing cowardly savages.

    Sick to death of hearing about the middle fcuking east. The desert people are nothing but bad news for native Europeans, full stop.

    And before some cretin drones on about Israel being the front line against ‘Islamism’, if you live in sh1tholes like Bradford, Luton, Oldham the front line is outside your f-ing door.

    Yasmin, how does hamas afford the iranian rockets? Iran must give the rockets to hamas, on the condition that hamas use them. What would be the point otherwise?
    You really need to understand the hamas and iranian agendas. That’s your starting point.
    You really need to do better, mind you you are labour, enough said.

    Presumably the IDF will be using the last hour before the ceasefire to kill some more women and children. It must be intentional because we are told that all their bombs and shells are targeted with pinpoint accuracy.

    Everyone needs to wake up and smell the coffee. Until the head of the Iranian regime is cut off you will NEVER have peace in the middle east. The same Iranian regime that owns and runs Press TV (Editorial control in Tehran, Ofcom proved this). Does Gorgeous George still work for this outfit ?

    Iran will continue to train Palestinian militia. Many of these young men change from Sunni to Shiite moslems, making problems when returning to Sunni Gaza. So there is plenty of in-fighting going on with plenty of ‘friendly fire and friendly rocket victims’.

    Kaufman was shameful in the commons yesterday. Tried to make a link between what butcher Assad is doing in Syria with what Netanyahu has done in Gaza this week. There’s no fng comparison Kaufman. There is real evil in the middle east in the form of Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and the daddy of them all is Iran. The scum that run these organisations and governments need eradicating.

    “Israeli is pounding gaza with thousands of missiles which are lethal”

    It is always wonderful to pick idiotic lefties by their own words.

    “Thousands of missiles”
    Hmm this “thousands” make 170 deaths of which around 120 were Hamas/Jihad

    That is the absolute epitome of restraint and precision…

    Btw the Palestinians in this operation killed more Palestinians than killed Israelis. 6 spies more a undetermined number due to own rockets falling in Gaza.

    Of course because Israelis care for their own while Palestinians use own people and journalists as shields.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
