Gove: Corbyn Backs Death Squads Over Democrats

Michael Gove last night accused Jeremy Corbyn of siding with “death squads” over “democrats” as he slammed Jez over the anti-semitism row which overshadowed Labour conference. Addressing a packed Conservative Friends of Israel reception, Gove said:

“When there’s a chance to express solidarity with the only parliamentary democracy in the Middle East, he [Jeremy Corbyn] says: ‘no’. And why is that on every occasion when Jeremy Corbyn has had the chance to choose between the death squad and the democrat he has declined to stand with the democrat? Why is it? Because Hamas and Hezbollah are his friends but when Labour Friends of Israel meet he ‘cannot be there.'”

The audience shouted “shame”. Gove spoke alongside Eric Pickles and Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev, who was on good form. One of the better fringes…

Corbyn Boycotts Israel, McDonnell Avoids Business


Mark Regev, Israel’s ambassador to the United Kingdom, braved the hostile chanting protestors outside the Hilton Metropole to address the Labour Friends of Israel reception last night in Brighton. Emily Thornberry told the attendees: “Jeremy’s not attending any receptions this evening because he’s got a big speech tomorrow.” Well Jezza is 68 years old, perhaps it was best he got an early night ahead of the big speech…

Hold on, here’s Jezza at the Mirror’s party:

Almost like he preferred to boycott Israel and not show solidarity with the Israeli Labour Party. Oh Jeremy…

Meanwhile over at the Labour Business Reception they awaited their keynote speaker’s address to the brave suits who support Labour. Formerly the Labour Finance and Industry Group, it was founded by Harold Wilson in 1972, and has been the channel for business to the party through thick and thin. When Gordon Brown was shadow chancellor and even chancellor in government, he made sure to always put in an appearance at the event. Marxist McDonnell was a no show and instead they had to make do with an address from Stephen Kinnock…

UPDATE: Corbyn also made it to Unite’s party. Thornberry wasn’t telling the truth.

UPDATE II: Jezza also managed an after midnight appearance at Momentum’s The World Transformed party. The old boy has some stamina…

Labour Gorton Candidate Accused Israel of “Genocide”

Labour’s candidate in the Gorton by-election accused Israel of “genocide” in a vitriolic rant revealed in a secret recording obtained by Guido. The bombshell tape shows Afzal Khan giving an angry speech at an anti-Iraq war rally, in which he says Israel has “been committing genocide against the Palestinian people” and claims this is a “far more pressing issue” than Saddam:

“There is a very real suspicion of President Bush, his motives for this war. He talks about weapons of mass destruction. I ask you, is it only Iraq who have these weapons?… What about America who even use the nuclear weapons? What right does America have? And what about the chemical weapons… it’s America who used it… And what about that man of peace Ariel Sharon? Who makes mockery of the word peace. Who’s been committing genocide against the Palestinian people. What about him? Of course we need to deal with Saddam, but far more pressing issue is the problem of Palestine.”

Khan made the inflammatory comments at an anti-Iraq war rally in 2002. In a statement to Guido he apologises and says he has changed his ways:

“I’m deeply sorry for my use of language 15 years ago and I strongly support a two state solution between Israel and Palestine.”

Labour members have been suspended for saying similar…

Corbynista Candidate: “Israel Key Link in Exporting ISIS Oil”

Corbynista Alison Gove-Humphries last night won the selection to stand for Labour in Birmingham City Council’s Hall Green by-election. Her Facebook makes interesting reading. Gove-Humphries has shared an article putting forward the conspiracy theory that “Israel [is the] key link in exporting ISIS oil“.

She also thinks the “Israel lobby manufactured UK Labour Party’s anti-semitism crisis”.

Labour have kicked people out for saying the same…

Indefensible: Israeli Land Grab Law

Guido has always been a staunch defender of Israel’s right to exist, Israel’s right to security and Israel’s military stance in a hostile region. The only democracy in a region of dictatorships, an ally in the war on terror and part of the Judaeo-Christian heritage that underpins Western values. In difficult times we have stood by Israel.

The new land grab law brought forward by Likud’s coalition partners is indefensible. The law allows the state to expropriate privately-owned Palestinian land in the West Bank / Judea and Samaria where Israeli settlements or outposts have been built. The law will allow for the retroactive legalisation of land in more than 50 outposts and settlements so far. It allows Jewish settlers to remain in their homes, even though it does not grant them ownership of the land they live on. It denies the Palestinian owners the right to claim the land or take possession of it “until there is a diplomatic resolution of the status of the territories.”

This is the state legitimising theft. Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit has, rightly, indicated that if the law is challenged in the courts, he won’t defend it. Nor should any of Israel’s friends.

Khan Hosting Party Tonight With 11 Nations Who Ban Israelis

Just hours after demanding the government rescinds its invite to President Trump over his travel ban, Sadiq Khan will tonight host a City Hall reception with 11 dignitaries whose countries bar Israeli citizens from entering. Bangladesh, Brunei, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen will all be represented at the gathering of ambassadors this evening. All 11 of these countries block travel to Israeli passport holders. Khan will use tonight’s party to criticise Trump’s ban as “cruel, prejudiced and counterproductive.While dining with 11 diplomats whose countries have done the same for years…

UPDATE: Tory London Assembly member Andrew Boff says:

“I fully support the Mayor’s condemnation of President Trump’s divisive travel ban but he should also be willing to condemn those countries that discriminate against citizens from Israel – particularly when he is hosting their representatives at a drinks reception at City Hall.”

UKIP’s Peter Whittle adds:

“Will the Mayor use this occasion to speak out against the 11 countries that permanently ban Israelis? Of course he won’t. Will he rescind their invites to this party, just as he’s calling for the state visit to be stopped? Of course he won’t. Like the protesters yesterday, his outrage is highly selective.”

And Nigel Farage tells Sadiq:

“You want Trump banned from UK but are happy with anti-Israeli discrimination. You are a hypocrite.”

Revealed: Al-Jazeera Undercover Operative’s Cover Story Exploited Holocaust

Guido can unmask the undercover operative who carried out Al-Jazeera’s sting targeting Israelis in London. Multiple sources confirm that the man above is ‘Robin Harrow’, the name used by a Qatari-funded undercover journalist who infiltrated the Israeli Embassy. ‘Harrow’ claimed he was German, sources say he convinced young Jewish activists he was a supporter of Israel by telling them he was guilty about the Holocaust and his country’s history. A charming cover story.

‘Harrow’ told Jewish community members he was a recent graduate of the University of Berlin, and suddenly announced he was “returning to Germany” before the story broke and deleted his Twitter account. A bogus pro-Israel opinion piece he wrote for The Times of Israel as part of his cover has disappeared:

All that hard work creating his cover story and this is all he could catch the pesky Zionists doing?

Al-Jazeera Over-Eggs Israeli Conspiracy Sting

Guido thought the Al-Jazeera sting exposing Israeli ‘diplomat’ Shai Masot and Rob Halfon aide Maria Strizzolo discussing their dislike of Alan Duncan was a fun tale. Was it a “plot” to “take down” a Tory minister? No. Maria Strizzolo was a very junior aide. The truth is MPs and journalists have far tastier conversations with friends at London embassies all the time…

Part two of the sting caught Masot telling Labour Friends of Israel chair Joan Ryan that he could fund trips for MPs to Israel. If you believe Al-Jazeera this is proof of a million pound Israeli conspiracy to buy off British MPs. Again they’ve over-egged it. Pretty much every MP has taken a freebie trip to another country at some point.

Today brings part three: the Israeli embassy helped Jewish students campaign against Malia Bouattia’s election as NUS president. Seriously? Bouattia had been embroiled in some pretty nasty anti-Semitism allegations, is it a surprise or even a bad thing that the Israelis aren’t her biggest fan? Noteworthy that the Qatari-funded Al-Jazeera is siding with an alleged anti-Semite while peddling a bunch of far-fetched anti-Israel conspiracies in a series titled “The Lobby” (that old trope). Guido looks forward to Al-Jazeera’s exposé of Qatari money funding much more sinister activities in the UK…

Corbyn Attends Khomeinist Event With Press TV and Israel Hating Extremists

Jeremy Corbyn attended an event hosted by a Khomeinist group on Wednesday night with Press TV and an infamous Israel hater. Guido can reveal Corbyn was at an Islamic Human Rights Commission event launching a book on Palestine by Hatem Bazian. It was chaired by Amina Taylor, who works for the Iranian regime’s television channel Press TV. The Islamic Human Rights Commission is a notorious Khomeinist group – it organises the Al-Quds Day protests in London, an annual anti-Israel demonstration initiated by Ayatollah Khomeini and attended every year by supporters of the terror group Hezbollah. Last year the IHRC gave their ‘Islamophobe of the Year’ award to the murdered staff of Charlie Hebdo. 

Bazian, the author pictured with a smiling Corbyn above, is a renowned hater of “Zionists“. Some examples of his tweets include: “Should Jews Have To Pay Reparations for Slavery?” and “Israel lobby manufactured UK Labour Party’s anti-Semitism crisis”, not to mention rant after rant about “Jews” and the “Israel lobby“. Bazian has been involved in numerous anti-Semitism rows, he set up a group which has repeatedly been accused of harassing Jewish students. Corbyn said he was too busy to visit Israel’s Holocaust memorial, he found the time to hang out with Khomeinists, Press TV and Israel-hating extremists this week…

Thornberry Pulls Out of Israel Event to Attend Castro Funeral

emt

Emily Thronberry has pulled out of an event on Britain’s relationship with Israel in order to attend Fidel Castro’s funeral, Guido can reveal. Thornberry was due to speak at today’s conference hosted by BICOM and the Jewish News discussing terrorism and “cooperation” between Britain and Israel. Guido understands she is now in Cuba. Labour’s foreign policy priorities summed up…

Tom Watson Sings in Celebration of Israel

The words mean “the nation of Israel lives” and are the same words Benjamin Netanyahu wrote in a visitors book when he visited Germany. The contrast with Corbyn & Co. is striking, this is not merely a much appreciated symbolic difference, it is ideological…

Friends of the Earth Spokesman: Israel and ISIS are “Best Pals”

tweets-asad-rehman

Asad Rehman is a senior spokesman for Friends of the Earth and is leading their delegation at the next UN Climate Change conference. As you can see above, Asad has worked out who are the real baddies when it comes to climate change: those pesky Zionists. He says Netanyahu and Israel are “best pals” with ISIS and advocates banning “Zionist organisations” from climate change events. Things are certainly hotting up at the Friends of the Earth press office this afternoon…

Jewish Labour Members Walk Out Over “Cancer” Rant

screen-shot-2016-09-28-at-00-54-02

Jewish Labour members walked out of the Arab ambassadors’ reception at Labour conference last night after the Palestinian ambassador ranted about Israel. Multiple sources independently quote Manuel Hassassian, Palestinian ambassador to the UK, as describing Israel and Israelis as a “cancer“. According to a source in the room a large number of attendees walked out in disgust, with some Jewish Labour members brought to tears. They were particularly upset that Labour MPs present did not speak out against the comments. Earlier Hassassian had launched another tirade against Israel, describing them as “cowboys“. Seems a charmer…

New Labour Friends of Israel Poster Girl Opposed Creation of Israel

rupa

Labour Friends of Israel have signed up some interesting characters as it rebrands ahead of conference, none more so than Rupa Huq. The Labour MP has hardly been a friend in the past – earlier this year she was caught telling an extreme pro-Palestine group that Britain should apologise for helping create the State of Israel:

“1948, that happened under a British government. To my mind, an apology – yes. You could do one. A Labour Government could probably get that through.”

She later retracted her comment.

Her record on anti-Semitism isn’t great either. Huq defended Naz Shah, arguing she “did not write any anti-Semitic tracts”. (Shah had written about “Jews rallying”.) Huq also bizarrely claimed that tweeting a graphic of Israelis being transported out of the Middle East was the same as tweeting a funny photo of Boris Johnson on a zip-wire. She never apologised. A curious choice to be LFI’s new star supporter…

Zionist-Hating Young Labour Chief Pictured Brandishing Gun

abdi aziz suleiman

Young Labour’s International Officer Abdi-Aziz Suleiman sparked a furore over the weekend when he appeared on the Iranian state-run Press TV to defend Corbyn. He has previous. In another Press TV interview, Suleiman rails against “dedicated Zionists” and rants about Israel. When he was called out, he responded by arguing Israeli media should be boycotted instead. What does the Momentum-backed Corbynista get up to in his spare time? The above image of Suleiman brandishing a gun, finger curled around the trigger, has been circulating in Labour circles. He reassures Guido he was just on holiday in America. Glad to hear he’s not taking the whole Jezbollah thing too seriously…

Islington Corbynistas Blame Israeli Ambassador For Bad Poll Results

Last night Islington North Constituency Labour Party met to nominate Jeremy Corbyn by 266 to 100. Turns out Jez has some interesting local backers:

Another attendee, Padraig Reidy, explains what happened:

a speaker rose to tackle the contention that Corbyn is “unelectable”. This, he said, was because no one was “electable” in Britain without the support of Rupert Murdoch and the Israeli ambassador. Half the room gasped; the chair visibly cringed, and ordered the speaker to proceed very carefully. The speaker contended that anyone who stood up for Palestinians was “smeared” as an anti-Semite. Everyone was very glad when he sat down.

Later on:

A woman rose nervously to talk about anti-Semitism in the party, referring to the early speaker’s “Israeli ambassador” line. She found herself barracked by some of the audience for conflating anti-Zionism and anti-Semitism

Well what do you expect from the Jezbollah London branch…

UN Deletes Article Calling Hamas Operative “Hero”

MOHAMMED KHALIL TEXT

The United Nations has deleted a webpage calling charity worker Mohammed El-Halabi a “humanitarian hero” after he was arrested for funnelling millions of pounds of aid to Hamas’ military wing. An archived version of the page quotes El-Halabi claiming to have “fully dedicated my life to helping people and children”, he said the best part of his job was “managing to restore the smiles of children”. Instead he allegedly stole the money meant for those children and funnelled it to Hamas fighters, sending the terror group £5.5 million a year. You can still view El-Halabi’s glowing UN profile here

DfID Funding Hamas Scandal Charity

DFID HAMAS

DfID has given £27 million to a charity whose lead organiser in Gaza has just been arrested for funnelling 60% of his budget to Hamas. World Vision’s Mohammed El-Halabi was seized in an operation by Israeli intelligence and is accused of moving “tens of millions” of aid money to Hamas’ military wing. A Hamas member, Halabi allegedly “infiltratedWorld Vision in 2005 with the explicit intention to steal money and funnel it to fighters. He gave £5.5 million every year to the terror group – including 40% of the charity’s civilian project fund. World Vision is funded by the British taxpayer through DfiD’s aid programme. That’s the first budget for Priti Patel to shut down then…

UPDATE: Luke Akehurst, Director of We Believe in Israel, says:

“Kind-hearted Brits have given tens of thousands of pounds to a Christian charity to help needy children in Gaza, only to find out they were duped and their money stolen and diverted to fund Hamas’s terrorist activities. It’s outrageous that instead of helping Gazan children being fed and clothed, Hamas prefers to build terrorist infrastructure, dig attack tunnels into Israel, pay their terrorist fighters and buy missiles that will be used against Israeli civilians.”

UPDATE II: A DfID spokesman says that money given to World Vision was not designed to go to the Palestinian Territories, however they concede they did give money to the charity’s Gaza appeal in 2014 as part of the Disaster Emergency Committee. They cannot rule out that some of this money may have found its way into Halabi’s hands…

Bewildered Bibi Watches Ugandan President’s Hilarious Speech

This is so bad it’s good. Speaking at an event commemorating the storming of Entebbe airport by Israeli special forces, Ugandan President Museveni went hilariously off-topic, to the bewilderment of the watching Netanyahu. Somehow don’t think Bibi will take him up on his offer of mediation in Gaza…

Corbyn Compares Israel to ISIS

jez

Jeremy Corbyn has just compared Israel to ISIS, telling the launch of the Shami Chakrabarti anti-Semitism report:

Politics Home reports:

“Sources close to Mr Corbyn later insisted he had been talking about “self-styled” Islamic countries like Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, but admitted that by “organisations”, the Labour leader was referring to IS as well as other terror groups like Hamas, Hezbollah and Al-qaeda.”

Shami’s key recommendations include no life bans for anti-Semites, “a greater range of sanctions short of suspension and expulsion” and no changes to the rules.[…] Read the rest
