David ‘The Jews’ Ward Off On One Again

Guido Fawkes Esq.

FAO Alistair Carmichael,

Chief Whip Liberal Democrats

Dear Mr. Carmichael,

Sincerest apologies for disturbing you on your birthday. 

On 27th February this year, following a meeting with David Ward MP, you wrote that you had “agreed language that will be proportionate and precise in your future interventions in this debate”. After your warning he said he was “disappointed and angry” at your letter.

This exchange came after Mr Ward had caused uproar over his comments concerning “the Jews”, including saying that he could think of no better day than Holocaust Memorial Day to discuss the Israel-Palestine conflict.

Your party has repeatedly said that it is taking Mr Ward’s conduct “extremely seriously”, also promising “there will be consequences” if he makes similar comments in the future. You have also said that you have effectively given him a “yellow card”, despite him making controversial comments on at least three further occasions.

Unfortunately, yesterday Mr Ward chose to ignore your words once again. Writing on Twitter, he questioned the continued existence of the State of Israel:

Jeremy Newmark, chief executive of the Jewish Leadership Council, tells Jewish News the tweet will “only fuel the view that extremism and politics of hate are acceptable Lib Dem discourse”. 

I hope you find the time to take these comments into account before continuing your celebrations.

Yours,

Guido Fawkes

        Some obvious mistakes there, here are the corrections:

        It’s not a real country but a religious colony established at gunpoint.
        It’s not a democracy, it’s a theocracy.
        The people being occupied illegally have no say in matters and arabs inside “Israel” are treated as a serf underclass to do the dirty work for the chosen ones.

    IDS, this morning, goes on Radio 4 and completely fails to give anything like a passable impersonation of a man with a grasp of his brief, and brushes away his rebuke by the ONS by saying, apparently with a straight face “I have a belief I am right” as if that’s the end of the matter.

    And this is the slant you put on the story?

    !srael is not an apartheid state.

    David Ward is wrong to make his statements in this way as he is only closing what should be legitimate debate. He should be ridiculed for his total rhetorical failure, and lack of ability in the craft of politic.

    He is right to distinguish Z’ism from J’ism but should retract fully his original statements directed towards the religion, but only out of decency.

    Attacking a religion is not racist.

    Making negative statements about a sect such as Z’ism is not racist.

    Criticizing the policies of the state of !srael is fine.

    Singling out !sraeli’s specifically would be racist.

    Followers of a religion considering themselves to be ethnically distinct is racist thinking in its purest form.

      Palestinians are Arabs who’ve noticed Israelis have actually made something of a country out of strip of dry land that nobody wanted before and now they want to move in and take over. There’s plenty of fucking land on the Arabian peninsula for them ten times over but the other Arabs know they are worth more somewhere else, diverting attention from their own internal corruption and failings.

          • Maqboul is on the button here, as usual. The history was one of mostly gradual settlement into a largely uninhabited area in which nomads would come and go according to the season and weather. Having been expelled from a number of countries, this increased with the pogroms in the late 19th century. They increased gradually and without much in the way of trouble during the time of the British mandate to the size of the current Brighton population but were still a minority. The Nazi persecutions and the release from camps almost tripled this figure but the number of Arabs had also increased. The relatively trivial pre-existing tensions then started to erupt into major conflict the day after the State of Israel was declared. The country was born into war.

            It is worth remembering that many of the world’s countries had refused to accept Jеwish refugees during the 40s. The Jеwish population increased a further fourfold in the following ten years.

    It’s almost as if David Ward is the Asperger’s brother in the family who repeats out loud what he has heard everyone else saying, and when someone takes offence to it, the family close ranks and say “I can’t imagine where he gets this sort of thing from!” as they hustle him off away from view and earshot before he can potentially say “I get it from you and Mum, Daddy– that’s where I hear it, Mr Bloggs!”– as they fear he may do, with his condition.

    The thing is, not all Asperger’s kids are so retarded that they don’t realise they can sometimes have a bit of diabolical fun being “Mr Unfiltered.”
