The Mail has a video of Sadiq Khan being interviewed on Press TV, the Iranian state television channel, in 2009 while he was a government minister. In the clip Khan describes moderate Muslim groups as “Uncle Toms”. On LBC at the weekend Khan said the phrase “Uncle Tom” is “racist”…
She says she has decided to step down from the HAC due to hold an inquiry into anti-Semitism. Shame, she might have learned something…
The inquiry is calling for Jezza and Ken to give evidence. What could go wrong…
After Jeremy Corbyn refused to withdraw his comments describing Hamas as “friends“, the terror group have praised the Labour leader for deciding to maintain ties. Hamas spokesman Taher Al-Nunu reportedly told Breitbart:
“We welcome the declaration of the Labor chairman and see his engagement as a very important statement that is also a painful hit that the Zionist enemy received. Hamas is not and will not be considered a terrorist group and our struggle is reduced to the borders of occupied Palestine. [This is a] Zionist campaign to define Labor party leaders as anti-Semitic… a desperate move that reflects the weakness and confusion of the Zionist entity.”
36 hours until the polls open and Labour have just been endorsed by terrorists…
Suspended Labour councillor Shah Hussain has been on the Daily Politics to defend comparing a Jewish footballer to Hitler. Apparently he is the victim of a “witch-hunt”: “I’m a Muslim councillor and therefore my comments have been taken out of context”. He may need a better defence when he appeals his case to the NEC…
The idea that Israel should be “relocated” from the Middle East to America resulted in the suspension of Naz Shah, Salim Mulla and Ilyas Aziz. Now it emerges that top Corbynista MP Clive Lewis, a “core group” parliamentary ally of the leadership, has also tweeted on the subject. Lewis posted a quote saying that Israel shouldn’t have been located in the Middle East, but rather “put it in the Middle West” of the US:
What did Lewis hope to achieve by sending that tweet?
The very same day Lewis also exchanged very friendly tweets with Vicky Kirby, the disgraced suspended Labour member who said Hitler is a “Zionist God“.
A tough one to explain…
A few years ago Labour MP Paul Flynn was hauled in by the whips amid an anti-Semitism row when he accused Britain’s first Jewish ambassador to Israel of having “divided loyalties”. Flynn has offered his thoughts on the current crisis in a letter to a Labour-voting Jewish constituent which has been passed to Guido:
Sorry to trouble you but I hear from one of our canvassers that you were concerned about anti-Semitism in the Labour Party. We hear these accusations made in parliament along with many other nasty smear stories… The accusations of anti-Semitism in the Labour Party are among the wildest and least accurate of insults… Having been in the Labour Party since childhood I have never met an anti-Semite in the party… A number of journalists have seized on some comments made probably by pro-Palestine students and distorted and exaggerated them… There are many accusations that may be made against political parties. This one is wholly untrue.
That’s another vote lost on Thursday…
9:30am: Guido reveals Labour councillor Ilyas Aziz’s anti-Semitic Facebook posts.
11:01am: Aziz suspended by Labour.
12:54pm: Guido reveals Labour councillor Salim Mulla writing “Zionist Jews are a disgrace to humanity”.
1:26pm: Mulla suspended by Labour.
4:23pm: Guido finds Labour councillor Shah Hussain comparing an Israeli footballer to Hitler.
4:40pm: Hussain suspended by Labour.
60 hours until the polls open…
And that’s the hat-trick. Burnley Labour councillor Shah Hussain has been suspended for tweeting to the Israeli footballer Yossi Benayoun that “you and your country doing the same thing that hitler did to ur race in ww2”. Cllr Hussain is certainly a charmer, he also expressed disappointment that the footballer was not kicked in the head “hard enough”.
A Labour spokesperson said:
“Councillor Shah Hussain has been suspended from the Labour Party pending the outcome of an investigation.”
Cllr Hussain tells Guido that he has not been “formally informed” of his suspension but confirms Labour have been in touch and that he believes he will be suspended pending the outcome of an investigation. That’s three Labour councillors booted out in five hours…
UPDATE: A co-conspirator points out a little bit of racially charged anti-Obama sneering on top:
Guido has just got off the phone with Salim Mulla, the former mayor of Blackburn who currently sits as a Labour councillor there. Last year Cllr Mulla posted on his Facebook page that it is “bloody obvious” who is behind […]
Pictured with Jeremy Corbyn above is Ilyas Aziz, a Labour councillor in Nottingham who backed Jezza for Leader. Cllr Aziz is Facebook friends with dozens of Labour MPs, all of whom must have missed him arguing that Israeli Jews should […]
