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…

Quote of the Day

John Curtice on fiscal policy:

“Attitudes to taxation and spending are basically counter-cyclical. If a government comes in and tries to reduce spending and taxation, after a while people will get worried about the state of public services. If a government increases taxation and public spending, after a while they’ll get concerned about increasing taxation…. In as much as there are lots of ideologues out there who think the state should be this proportion of GDP, they’re all wrong. Because the public’s view is counter-cyclical to the recent experience. It’s basically impossible to satisfy the public.”
