LibDems Won’t Comment as Labour Slam “Appalling” Slur

The LibDems are treating yesterday’s latest race row with their usual high standards of competence and professionalism. Guido gave a party spokesperson two separate opportunities to express regret for an an anti-Semitic article published by LibDem Friends of Palestine, only to be told “it is not for us to apologise”. LibDem Friends of Palestine, who posted the attack on Ed Miliband, are also refusing to say sorry. Fair to say Labour are not impressed, they tell Guido:

“These appalling comments are beneath contempt.”

This really shouldn’t be a tough decision for the LibDems…

UPDATE: A spokesperson for the LibDems says:

“That article was not, and is not the view of the party in any way. It was clearly inappropriate and offensive. We’re of course sorry if there was any offence caused.”

LibDem Friends of Palestine say:

“On 22 June, we posted a link to an article by Gilad Atzmon. This has now been removed and we apologise for any offence caused.”

            Atzmon is a rather odd individual and holocaust denier:
            “Despite being Je wish himself, Atzmon has promoted Holocaus t deniers and claims that the established history of the Holocaus t is misleading. He attacks Je wish identity in a way that would clearly be recognised as racis t if it were about any other minority identity and claims that people might think that Hitle r was right about the Je ws because of their behaviour today. He tells crude antisemitic jokes and mocks any concerns about antisemitism.” Nick Lowles, Rewriting History: Holocaus t Revisionism Today

            And the LibDems allow this??? Very odd???

          • Accepted of course that ethnic slurs of this nature are beyond the pale / beneath contempt when made against any race colour or creed and possibly grounds for race hatred legal action .

            But as a stand-alone observation : does not Milliband in the above snap convey the eyes of an assassin and the sneer of a dictator ?

            Similar to the description given to Portillo in his day I recall.

      Slamming opponents as “racist” now? And you’re surprised that Labour join in? Who wrote this piece – the open borders, mass-immigration fanatic Tory Bear?

      When you join in their silly game of using the word “racist” to demonise opponents and start demanding public show-trial style apologies then those interested in a free society have lost.

      Attack them on the facts, look at the geo-political questions and it is fair to point out the needlessly anti-semitic slant to it… but to strt screaming “racist” makes you sound like yasmin “I want whites to be extinct” brown.

      When the next politician talks about how important it is to enrich England with outsiders can we count on Guido attacking them for their “racist” desire to ethnically cleanse the English from their homeland?

We now need a campaign to have the police arrest him and charge him, as they should, with sexual abuse of a vulnerable constituent, abuse of power, perverting the course of justice (as he clearly lied to the police when he made his statement to them). He should also be stripped of his CBE. How he came by his villa in Spain also needs to be investigated by the police. What is the Home Secretary now doing about this evil politician?

    LibDems published an apology on facebook page by the look of it after taking story down.

    It is G’ilad A’tzmon who should be gone after: The ‘tribal’ refs are rac!st, but perhaps not in law. You cannot be rac!st towards a religion or cult (eg. J’udaism + follows / Z’ionism)

    G’ilad still has published on his site.
