John Mann, Unfit To Be An MP

The disgraceful, thuggish behaviour of John Mann in his assault of Ken Livingstone happens every day in Palestine.  There, it may be heavily armed IDF soldiers dealing with Palestinian children.  Or an Israeli demolition team throwing elderly grandparents out on the street before sending in the bulldozers to destroy their home.  It’s often far worse: a young Palestinian man taken out of sight and summarily executed simply because the IDF know they can get away with it.

John Mann’s conduct is right in line with the aggressive, brutal arrogance that characterises the state of Israel. The pathetic response of the Labor Party, so many spineless, politically-correct MPs ganging up against Livingstone, alleging that his reference to Hitler’s 1933  Haavara Agreement with Zionist German Jews is somehow ‘anti-semitic’.  The readiness of these cowards to jump on this bandwagon is contemptible, as are the underhand attempts to smear Jeremy Corbyn with the same charge.

The Tory Party is already well under the Israeli cosh and subservient to its two-phase strategy, donate and bully, donate and insist on a blind eye to Israeli war crimes.  Now Labour, in utter shambles between the Blairites and the hard left, are vulnerable to the most crafty, insidious political gameplayers of all.  Israel is a nation intent on subversion of western democracies at every level while imposing its brutal, racist, apartheid policies at home.

All honourable Israelis; Jew, Christian, Muslim and those of no faith, must rise up against this monstrous regime that is largely responsible for the Middle East conflict and now threatens the cohesion and stability of western nations. The corrupt influence of the  pro-Israel lobby must be rooted out from our political parties and all parts of our society.

The Truth About Israel And Why The Two State Solution Is Dead.

leave a comment »

David Ben-Gurion was the primary founder and the first Prime Minister of Israel.

David Ben-Gurion was the primary founder and the first Prime Minister of Israel.

“If I were an Arab leader, I would never sign an agreement with Israel. It is normal; we have taken their country. It is true God promised it to us, but how could that interest them? Our God is not theirs. There has been anti-semitism, the Nazis, Hitler, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They see but one thing: we have come and we have stolen their country. Why would they accept that?”

David Ben-Gurion

 This is the truth about Israel. Even its most revered father of the nation recognises that his country’s actions are indefensible.  With the seizure of land, unlawful blockade and seige of Gaza and thousands of war crimes it is only getting worse. There is no room for any further equivocation. The IDF is systematically murdering defenceless civilians and revelling in it while politicians in the Knesset, even Moshe Feiglin, the deputy speaker,  are publishing polemics arguing for genocide of the Palestinian people.  Feiglin calls for “concentration and extermination” of the Gazan people,  terrifying words  that suggest a second holocaust. Source.

Like most British people I am absolutely behind Israel’s ‘right to exist’ but nothing endangers that more than its  government’s conduct. Over and over again, Israel has shown it cannot be trusted. I regret to say that perhaps the two state solution is impossible. The attitude and actions of Israel make it so. Perhaps we need to look at a one state solution – a free Palestine where Jew, Arab, Muslim, Christian and secular people can live together in peace. Israel has sown the seeds of its own destruction and nurtured them diligently with the blood of Palestinian children.  The  world must call a halt.

Has Israel Extinguished Its Own ‘Right To Exist’? Is Palestine the One State Solution?

with 3 comments

I have always been an ardent supporter of Israel’s right to exist but  it may have gone too far this time to be allowed to continue as part of the community of nations.  Palestine, Islam and Arabs have never been as great a threat to Israel as its own disgusting conduct.  Truly it has been sowing the seeds of its own destruction for many years.

Perhaps the two state solution is now irredeemably lost.  Perhaps the world must now support a one state solution, the  state of Palestine, a place where Arab, Jew, Muslim, Christian and secular people can live together in peace.  God knows, Israel has the done the most awful job with the opportunity we entrusted it.

The Tragedy That Israel’s Youth Must Die For An Unjust Cause.

with one comment

<> on July 20, 2014 in Sderot, Israel.

Israeli mothers and fathers will grieve at the loss of their children. But the horror is that their children will die not just pointlessly but having caused enormous damage to humanity. For decent Israelis: Jew, Muslim, Christian or secular this is the deepest tragedy of all.  Zionism is a curse on our planet and the Israeli boys and girls who will perish are fair game.  In war, for justice, they deserve to die.

They too are victims but far fewer than of Palestine.

Israel must end its illegal occupation.  Until then everything from Palestine is heroic and just resistance.

Israeli F16s Against Popguns, Fireworks And Catapults. BBC Disgraces Humanity.

Israeli Air Force F-16

The criminal Israeli regime continues to brutalise the people of Palestine.  Be they Arab, Jew or Christian, if they stand in the way of the zionist hegemony they will be smashed and persecuted.  Their daughters will be raped, their sons will be tortured, their babies will have their heads  smashed against walls by IDF stormtroopers.

Meanwhile, to the UK’s everlasting disgrace, the BBC continues to favour the Israeli war machine against the children of Palestine.  The terrible murder of three Israeli teenagers is given wall to wall coverage while the month-old murder of two Palestinian children by the IDF is ignored.  The murder of six further young Palestinians in the past week is also overlooked by our national broadcaster and only when a ninth Palestinian child is abducted, tortured and executed can they finally acknowledge what is going on.

Who is running BBC News? Do they have a Mossad gun to their head?

The Miracle Of Healing.

leave a comment »

Whatever your religious belief, if any, the stories of Christ’s miraculous healing have persisted for more than 2,000 years. Such legends develop from oral history and we can never be certain how much is truth, how much is myth and what is a combination of both.  Those of faith carry their own certainty in their soul.  What is remarkable is the coincidence of several factors that together strongly suggest that the Holy anointing oil used by Christ, his disciples and other healers of the time may have contained cannabis as one of its major active ingredients.

The recipe for Holy anointing oil appeared in ancient Hebrew texts and, unsurprisingly, there are conflicting views about translation.

‘Kaneh-bosm’ ‘qneh-bism’, etc, etc are variants on a word used in ancient Hebrew texts which can be interpreted, credibly, as cannabis.  So can ‘calamus’ or ‘sweet calamus’. Different sources seem to use the words interchangeably.  However, if you add in the other factors, the healing, the region, its flora, the archaeological evidence and the well established use of cannabis in the region at the time then there is a very, very strong hypothesis.  To anyone who understands the miraculous healing properties of cannabis, now explained by modern science it seems common sense.

One CLEAR member, David Boylan, wrote these beautiful words about his faith and cannabis:

“God must have spent a lot of time and effort to produce your endocannabinoid system.

 An incredibly complex neurological system in everyone, with the sole purpose of being a receptor for cannabinoids. That must have taken our creator a lot of thought and effort to design…

Trillions of cells devoted to receiving THC and other compounds found ONLY in cannabis. God also ensured that this plant shows up all over the world and grows all around man where ever he looked… So God took all that care for what?

Did God say – “Let there be cannabis”? Then said “Let man have an endocannabinoid system which is stimulated only by cannabis”?

Then did he say…”And now let man get an £80 fixed penalty ticket if man uses it?? Did he say that? NO! Makes no sense, and there is nowhere in the bible I can find that.

I can’t see why Christians don’t have a problem with the government making Gods work illegal? Who are the government to ban God’s work?

It must have been God’s intent for us to at least experiment with cannabis.

That is my only logical conclusion, knowing the facts about the endocannabinoid system. The only conclusion I can make on a creator and pot.”

The Evil Of Organised Religion

with 12 comments

If we lived in a world without religion there wouldn’t be any conflict in Iraq or Afghanistan.  The Twin Towers would still be standing.  We wouldn’t be hearing the dreadful news about child sexual abuse in Ireland.  The Christian Church and Islam are both condemned for thousands of years of violence and evil.  They are both as bad as each other.  If I had my way they would both be disgraced and proscribed by appropriate public ceremony.

“Too many have died in the name of Christ for anyone to heed the call”

Teach Your Children

These are the immortal words of Crosby Stills & Nash.  Substitute “Christ” with any deity you care to mention.

I accept that in all organised religions there are people who do good. However, an accounting of the last two thousand years: the Crusades, the Inquisition, Palestine, the vile behaviour of priests and nuns, so many wars – shows that religion is seriously in the red and, quite seriously, perhaps it should be illegal.

Worship who or what you want as you want.  The minute that two or more of you get together to promote ideas that lead to death and suffering – well then you’re in a conspiracy.

Shame on the Irish Catholic Church for what it has done to Ireland.  No consequences could be too great or severe for this godless institution.

I pray to the God I believe in for justice and healing.
