Rupa Huq Defends Naz Shah’s Anti-Semitism

An astonishing interview by Labour MP Rupa Huq on the Today programme, in which she defended Naz Shah’s actions as merely a “silly” mistake and insisted: “Naz Shah did not write any anti-Semitic tracts, she just clicked share“. Errr, Shah typed the words “the Jews are rallying”…

Huq then compared tweeting a graphic of Israelis being transported out of the Middle East to tweeting a funny photo of Boris Johnson on a zip-wire. Is another Labour MP going to have to apologise for her comments on anti-Semitism? A classic case of going on the radio and not having a clue what you’re talking about…

Bradford Councillor Posted Goebbels Nazi Film “The Eternal Jew”

eternal-jew

Guido kids you not, another Bradford councillor has tweeted anti-Semitic propaganda. Cllr Istiaq Ahmed posted a link to the Nazi film “The Eternal Jew”, which was commissioned by Joseph Goebbels. It was originally uploaded to YouTube by the “HitlerMyFührer” channel. He has also posted a conspiracy theory video alleging that Israel is behind ISIS. Ahmed is employed by the charity which Naz Shah chairs. an independent councillor in Bradford, but he says he remains a Labour Party member as well. Will they kick him out too? What is going on in Bradford?

UPDATE: A Labour spokesman says Istiaq Ahmed was excluded from the party years ago. He says he rejoined.

Naz Shah’s Parliamentary Aide Suspended By Labour

Cllr Mohammad Shabbir confirms to Guido that he has been suspended by Labour following our story this morning. How can the party suspend Shabbir and not Naz Shah? This looks like one rule for low profile councillors and another for high profile MPs…

Supporting Terror: Naz Shah’s Pro-Hamas Tweets

In July 2014, Naz Shah tweeted a statement from Osama Hamdan, the head of international relations for Hamas, in which he argued that Hamas is a “legitimate resistance movement”.

This is not a one-off. In December 2014, just six months before she became an MP, Shah promoted an article about a contested EU court ruling that Hamas should be removed from the terror list:

Hamas is a proscribed terrorist organisation in the UK. This, according to Amnesty International, is what Hamas did to Palestinian prisoners during the 2014 Gaza War:

“There were marks of torture and bullet shots on his body. His arms and legs were broken… his body was as if you’d put it in a bag and smashed it… His body was riddled with about 30 bullets. He had slaughter marks around his neck, marks of knives… And from behind the head – there was no brain. Empty… It was difficult for us to carry him… He was heavy, like when you put meat in a bag; no bones. His bones were smashed. They broke him in the prison”

Of course the Hamas founding charter calls for the obliteration of Israel.

Shah is going to make a statement in the Commons imminently…

Naz Shah Employed “Zio”-Hater as Taxpayer-Funded Aide

The Labour councillor who regularly uses the anti-Semitic epithet zios was employed by Naz Shah as her taxpayer-funded aide while she was an MP. Mohammad Shabbir ran her office, was given a parliamentary email address and was Shah’s point of contact for job applications. Shabbir appears in the parliamentary email address book as “member’s staff” for the Bradford West MP:

Why did Shah employ a man who repeatedly authored anti-Semitic slurs as her taxpayer-funded office manager?
