Priti to Proscribe Hamas in Blow to Jeremy

Jeremy Corbyn could face up to a decade in prison if he ever meets with his “friends” from Hamas again, under a new proscription of the group to be announced by Priti this afternoon. Speaking in America she’ll declare that the political wing will join the military wing of the terrorist Palestinian group on the Home Office’s proscribed group list, and individuals who express support will be in breach of the Terrorism Act 2000. This includes flying its flag, arranging to meet its members, wearing supportive clothing or being so idiotic as to actually pay them a visit – say in November 2010, before then failing to register who paid for the trip…

Patel will push the change through Parliament next week, trailing the announcement to the press last night and saying it’s vital to help protect the Jewish community:

“We’ve taken the view that we can no longer disaggregate the sort of military and political side. It’s based upon a wide range of intelligence, information and also links to terrorism. The severity of that speaks for itself…

Hamas is fundamentally and rabidly antisemitic… Antisemitism is an enduring evil which I will never tolerate. Jewish people routinely feel unsafe — at school, in the streets, when they worship, in their homes, and online. This step will strengthen the case against anyone who waves a Hamas flag in the United Kingdom, an act that is bound to make Jewish people feel unsafe.”

As well as calling them his friends, the Rt Hon. Member for Islington North also previously:

  • Called for Hamas to be removed from terror banned list.
  • Called Hamas “serious and hard-working“.
  • Attended conference with Hamas and PFLP.
  • Hired aide who praised Hamas’ “spirit of resistance“.
  • Accepted two more trips from the pro-Hamas group PRC.
  • Speaker at conference hosted by pro-Hamas group MEMO.
  • Met Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh several times.
  • Received an endorsement from Hamas
  • Supported Hamas and ISIS-linked Viva Palestina group.
  • Said Hamas should “have tea with the Queen”.
  • Defended the infamous anti-Semitic Hamas supporter Stephen Sizer.
  • Attended event with pro-Hamas and Hezbollah group Naturei Karta.
  • Was named on the speakers list for a conference with Hamas sympathiser Ismail Patel.*

Last night Corbyn’s spokesman said the former Labour leader “is a supporter of justice and human rights for the Palestinian people, peace and a two state solution. He has never been a supporter of Hamas but recognises the need to bring all sides together for dialogue to promote security, peace and justice for both peoples.” In the words of Emily Thornberry, well there we are…

EXCLUSIVE: Leadbeater’s Palestine Plea Letter in Batley & Spen

It looks like the pretence that Kim Leadbeater is running her Batley & Spen campaign on local issues has finally gone out the window. In a new letter forwarded to Guido today, the Labour candidate claims she will be “a strong voice for Palestinian human rights and statehood”, and promises to “use [her] voice in Parliament to speak out against the injustice of the Israeli occupation“. From Batley & Spen, for Gaza & the Golan Heights…

Sources tell Guido that Labour activists circulated the letter across the Mount Pleasant area this morning – which happens to have a predominantly-Muslim population. Hardly surprising: Leadbeater’s already posted campaign leaflets outlining her position on Palestine/Kashmir, and Starmer stood at the despatch box to essentially beg for votes on the same topic. When Keir said he wasn’t embarrassed to wave the flag, who knew it would be the Palestinian flag? The disaster in Chesham and Amersham won’t have done much to calm their nerves…

Convoy for Palestine Returns on Saturday

The group, which spent a Saturday afternoon driving through Finchley and Golders Green yelling “f*ck the Jews”, “r*pe their daughters” have organised ANOTHER protest in London. It’s the sequel that nobody wanted to see… 

This new protest, which begins at 7:30am, will start in Bradford, before stopping in Sheffield, Leicester, and finally ending outside Downing Street in London, where activists will join forces with the ‘Justice for Palestine Protest’ at 1pm. A packed itinerary… 

Organisers have generously organised coaches, however a seat on this coach will set each person back £20. Pricey…

Men and women will of course be segregated on the coaches so protestors can enjoy a relaxing trip to London and avoid annoying family members. Sounds like a win, win… 

The Convoy4Palestine Instagram page protestors have told their modest 200 followers:

“We do not condone or encourage ANY forms of racism. We condemn this type of behaviour.”

Guido didn’t realise shouting “f*ck the Jews” through a megaphone out your car is considered productive and peaceful dialogue these days…

Starmer’s Batley & Spen Voter Targeting

Starmer’s final question at PMQs turned to the issue of Palestine and the opportunity of the G7 to press for recognition of the state of Palestine and “get a meaningful peace process back up and running”. As Guido noted, a cynic may think the move might have something to do with the size of the Muslim vote in Batley & Spen, a community in which Labour is under siege from George Galloway. Something The Times’ Patrick Maguire seemingly agreed with, tweeting it “felt like it was written for Labour canvassers in Batley and Spen”.

Naz Shah Distances Herself from Antisemitism at Pro-Palestine Rally

Since her suspension from the Labour Party was lifted in 2016, Naz Shah seemed to have genuinely learnt from her mistakes and put the nasty business of antisemitism behind her. That was until last week, when the Shadow Minister for Community Cohesion was filmed speaking at a Pro-Palestine rally in Bradford. Recently released footage shows protestors chanting in Arabic “lift the curse of the Jews off the Muslims in Palestine!”, “God, support them with your soldiers! God, we ask you to make the Jews lose!”, and, “God, purify al-Aqsa from impure people”. Turns out spotting Antisemitic rallies is more difficult when there’s no 10-foot hook-nosed, red-eyed inflatable there…

Pictures, posted on social media, show protestors holding placards that read “Zionism is racism” and “Tell me Israel how are you any different than Hitler”. It seems that Naz Shah just can’t keep out of trouble… 

To her credit Naz Shah was quick to distance herself from these signs. In a tweeted statement Naz Shah wrote:

“Over recent weeks, a small minority of individuals have been trying to infiltrate demonstrations about the situation in Palestine to spew hatred. 

I was made aware that an individual at one of the rallies I spoke at, made remarks following the rally in Arabic – a language I do not speak. The individual was not a speaker but gained access to a microphone – the translation of their comments given to me are not remarks I’d ever make.

I will never shy away from using my voice to raise the plight of the Palestinian people but I will never tolerate antisemitism and I totally condemn anyone perpetrating it.” 

The Labour MP has history, in 2015 she wrote that Israelis should face “transportation” out of the Middle East and suggested that Israel should be “relocated” to America. Though she apologised for her controversial comments at the time, it seems her associates have not. Much like Jeremy Corbyn, Naz might be one of the world’s unluckiest anti-racists…

BBC’s Palestinian Specialist Was Hitler Fan-Girl

Usually our series of articles highlighting expert activists exposes interview guests posing as neutral experts whilst hiding their partisan political agenda. In the case of Tala Halawa, we’re focusing on a BBC journalist who for three years has been reporting on Palestine. She previously stated that she saw her mission as highlighting the “Palestinian case”.  Presumably that is why she was hired by the impartial BBC.

The BBC may be regretting hiring her after old tweets were discovered that give an inkling of her thinking. The BBC are keen to emphasise they are taking this “extremely seriously”, weakly pointing out she was not a BBC journalist in 2014 when she tweeted this particular post. She has now deleted her account…
