Gavin Williamson Shouldn’t Resign, He Must be SACKED. #AndImATory

with 5 comments

The disgusting abuse of Jeremy Corbyn by the immature young man who has been give the grave responsibility of running Britain’s defence is beyond redemption.

I am a Tory. I’m no longer a member of the Conservative Party and after 40 years of voting for it I shall never do so again until it turns away from its authoritarian and illiberal path. But I am a true Tory instead of the fake that inhabits 10, Downing Street and her sycophants and hangers on.

Similar smears about Corbyn’s efforts in talking to the IRA and Hamas by other Conservative politicians are also beneath contempt. If our senior politicians aren’t doing all they can to reach out to such organisations in peaceful dialogue then they are irresponsible.  However, that the Defence Secretary demeans himself and his office with such puerile conduct requires firm action. It is horrifying that this idiot has our armed forces under his control.  It would be like giving his allies in defaming Corbyn: Murdoch, Dacre and the Barclay Brothers, access to our weaponry.

Williamson is totally unsuitable for his role and he was well before these events.  He should be a junior assistant at some obscure party branch where he can make his childish mistakes and clumsy errors without causing real harm.  The combination of youthful arrogance, incompetence, poor judgement and a flappy mouth should now destroy his political career for good.  Perhaps his chums in the Fleet Street Mafia can find something for him to do publishing more poison and abuse?

Before that he should be dragged through the courts and bankrupted. There is no defence of fair comment or honest opinion for his behaviour, not even against the leader of a political party. Indeed, Williamson’s behaviour is an argument for bringing such serious slander back into the criminal courts.

“Nazi stormtroopers had identified our house as the home of a Jewish family…”. Now Israel Does The Same In Gaza.

Originally published in the Guardian.

KRISTALLNACHT

“One night, when I was 13, I was woken by the sound of a door being broken down. Boots stumbled up the stairs, there was loud shouting, and a terrifying series of crashes. Nazi stormtroopers had identified our house as the home of a Jewish family, and this was the night of 9 November 1938, when the Kristallnacht pogrom raged across Germany. Our entire home was destroyed before our eyes, with axes and sledgehammers.

I have a vivid recollection of my father, after the monsters had gone, sitting on the one chair that remained and weeping. I had never seen him weep before. I now realise that, but for the presence of myself and my younger sister, my parents might not have survived the raid. It was a brutal demonstration of our situation. My sister and I left Germany on the last Kindertransport from Düsseldorf in May 1939. We have never had a full account of our parents’ fate.

Even now, I sometimes start up in bed, reliving that night. But in recent weeks, it is more often images of devastation in Gaza – of homes and families destroyed in Israeli targetings of such “military objectives” as the homes of officials in the democratically elected Hamas government – that have recalled the terror of the Kristallnacht. For I can hardly believe that a Jewish government is doing these things. How can Jewish people, aware of their own history, undertake a campaign of collective punishment that kills a higher multiple of the casualties cited as justification, than did the Nazi reprisals for resistance in occupied Europe?

Surely we have reached the point where every government not composed of utter humbugs must join in insisting that an Israeli renunciation of ambitions for expansion beyond the 1947 boundaries is a prerequisite for progress towards reconciliation and peace within a two-state solution. The very doubtful prospect of a unified, multinational, secular state in Palestine appears to be the only alternative.”

Hamas Is To Israel What The French Resistance Was To The Nazis.

Hamas is the product of Israel’s conduct. There is no justification or excuse for any of Israel’s actions. They are all undertaken in support of an illegal occupation and in breach of 64 UN resolutions. Israel is an outlaw state. Nothing it does in Gaza is legal. It is the rockets that are self defence and the response of Hamas is as the French Resistance to the Nazi occupation.

Israel_Nazi_jewsIsrael is a country with the most enormous potential yet it has been hijacked by evil.  Just as Germany was subjugated by the Nazis in the 1930s, so Israel is perverted and disgraced by zionists, the new Nazis.

The lives of IDF soldiers are fair game for Hamas.  While individual deaths are tragic, these are soldiers of the Nazionist regime.  Just as ordinary German soldiers had to die in the war against Nazisim, for a greater good, so must ordinary Israeli soldiers.  We cannot hesitate to act in defence of Palestine.  When the Israeli boy or girl soldier is in your sights, the trigger must be pulled. It is the moral and correct choice.

The Nazionist propaganda machine is powerful and effective.  It has duped many Israelis.  It operates furiously worldwide on social media and the internet.  It pushes the lie that Israel aims to avoid civilian casualties.  It endlessly repeats the deception that Hamas is the aggressor when Israel is the criminal, outlaw state engaged in illegal occupation, blockade, genocide, child murder and oppression.

NO! Mr Cameron, The Root Cause Of the Massacre In Gaza Is Not Hamas Rockets, It Is The Illegal Occupation!

cameron statement

If I lived in Gaza under the oppression of the outlaw Israeli state, I would regard it as my moral obligation to fight back against the occupying power with any and all weapons that I could find.

Hamas may be a vile, brutal organisation but it is the product of Israel’s own conduct.  The rockets are fully justified as self defence and Israel has only itself to blame.

An Alternative Strategy For Israel

leave a comment »

Instead of committing genocide, instead of murdering hundreds of innocent women and children, instead of your ridiculous, inane, self-defeating behaviour, instead of condemning your nation to everlasting shame and ignominy, why not try this?

Your much vaunted special forces and Mossad take the responsibility themselves.  No tanks, no F16s, no naval bombardment.  No more cowardice. I am sure that Britain and the US will provide support.  One SAS squadron sacrificing itself  in the name of humanity can achieve infinitely more than you very small, very pathetic, very evil little men can even conceive.  Send in dozens, perhaps hundreds of special forces to take out the rocket launchers and the Hamas leaders.  They probably suffer dozens, perhaps hundreds of casualties but as trained soldiers that is their purpose.  It is not the purpose of women and children to die for your perverse, thuggish political ends.

I truly believe that Israel has now gone beyond redemption.  Nothing can forgive what you have done.  I can deal with you as individuals, many of whom will be against what has been done in your name but as a nation you are now pariahs, outcasts and  monsters.  “Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord” and it is coming to you Israel, sooner or later, it is coming.    Ehud Olmert, Ehud Barak, you will get what you deserve.

Genocide In Gaza

leave a comment »

I have no problem with dropping smart bombs on the heads of Hamas leaders.  I, along with most reasonable people, would even put up with a little collateral damage and come civilian casualties but what the Israelis are doing in Gaza is nothing short of genocide.  Israel’s leaders should be indicted on war crimes charges.

Hamas is undoutedly an evil organisation and the firing of rockets into Israel is unacceptable and must be stopped, if necessary, by force.  It is as nothing though compared to the brutality of Israel.  Remember that Hamas’ rockets are a reaction to the Israeli blockade of Gaza and are a proportionate response to Israel’s bullying.  Gaza is exactly the same as the Warsaw Ghetto and the Israeli state is doing a fine job of playing the Nazi role.

Bush is dead and gone and so he should be with the ludicrous comments he came out with yesterday.  I cannot believe that Barack Obama will allow Israel to continue as it is.  Indeed that is probably the very reason it  is doing what it is in advance of his inauguration.

Meanwhile our lily livered “leaders” sit on their fat, post-Christmas arses and do nothing.  They walk past on the other side while the women and children of Gaza burn
