The Centre For Social Cohesion – A Zionist Deception

with 103 comments

On the BBC’s “Sunday Morning Live”, the director of “The Centre For Social Cohesion”, Douglas Murray, was wheeled out as an apologist for Israel.

The question was “David Cameron causes a stir by calling Gaza a “prison camp”. So is it time for a franker dialogue with the Jewish state? Or are we already too critical of Israel?”

Mad, Bad And Dangerous

Murray tried to defend Israel’s actions in Gaza, in particular coming out with the latest Zioinst propaganda about shopping malls and the “luxury” that Gaza’s inhabitants enjoy.

I agree with David Cameron’s words entirely.  I would make just one slight correction.  I would call Gaza a “concentration camp” just to make the similarity with the Nazis absolutely clear.

I can only assume that “The Centre For Social Cohesion” is Murray’s personal plaything.  It surely cannot be a serious organisation.  It is difficult to imagine anyone giving this joker any sort of responsible job.  What more pompous and inaccurate title could there be for an organisation that he has anything to do with?  He must have made it up himself.

Drivel

It styles itself as “a non-partisan think-tank that studies issues related to community cohesion in the UK. Committed to the promotion of human rights, it is the first think-tank in the UK to specialise in studying radicalisation and extremism within Britain”.

What, with Douglas Murray as its director?  How utterly, excruciatingly absurd.  His attitudes are as far away from socially cohesive, non-partisan and promoting human rights as it is possible to imagine.

Can the name of this organisation or what it says about itself be covered by the Trades Descriptions Act?

What can right-thinking, honourable and truthful people do to defeat such deception?

Expose him and his organisation for the pariahs that they are.  Complain to the BBC here and tell them that we are looking for truth on our televisions, not deception, propaganda and lies.

Tony Hayward, BP And The Oil Spill

Good Job

I am really very impressed with BP’s Chief Executive.  He is doing the best possible job for his company – and probably for all concerned.  His appearance on the Andrew Marr show this morning was an object lesson in how to handle such a crisis.  He is suitably contrite.  He is direct, honest, loyal, everything that any board of directors or committee of shareholders could ask for.  Crucially, in the TV age, he looks right.  His appearance is an exact match for his message.

Here is a man who is worth every penny of a salary I would expect to run to hundreds of thousands of pounds.

I’m no fan or friend of big oil companies.  There’s little doubt in my mind that BP and Esso/Exxon, the world’s biggest, operate an effective cartel on fuel prices.  They’re so big that no government can do anything about it.

I don’t think you can blame BP for the disaster although obviously it is responsible.  Clearly, you have to ensure that all possible safety standards and procedures are complied with but, given that, it could have happened to any oil company, anywhere.  There’s no more greed in BP than anywhere else. It’s just a business trying to make a profit like any other.

I deplore the oil spill just as I approve of motherhood and apple pie.  I understand that Obama has to give BP an appropriate amount of flak but the important point is how it is dealing with the disaster and all its consequences.  From what I see I think we should all be grateful that Tony Hayward is the man in charge.
