Corbyn fights for peace.

Opposition leader calls for Parliamentary vote on military action.

The last time the UK was close to military action in Syria, David Cameron, acutely aware of the mess he made of Libya, gave the elected members of parliament a vote on whether we should join the US in its quest to bomb Syria. He lost and this is probably the basis on which Theresa May has denied her Labour Party counterpart the opportunity this time around.

Theresa May’s ‘don’t go to jail’ card.

Despite Tony Blair’s denial of any wrongdoing in the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, the majority of the UK population hold him responsible for deceit and agreeing to go to war alongside George Bush before there was reasonable evidence to do so. He blamed faulty intelligence but was guilty of twisting that information to suit his own agenda. There was no direct threat to the UK from Iraq and the claim of invading Afghanistan to stop the Taliban from protecting the alleged prime suspect of the 9/11 atrocity, Osama Bin Laden, resulting in him never being convicted, even in absentia, for the crime. Furthermore, he was never described as wanted by the FBI in connection to the attack.

The death of Dr David Kelly, a world renowned expert on WMD and well respected amongst his peers, cleared the way for war. The passing of Dr Kelly was mired in controversy with normal protocols being ignored and questions by a group of eminent doctors and surgeons being dismissed. Dr David Halpin has written extensively on Dr Kelly and it can be found here.

Former Conservative Prime minister, David Cameron also deliberately overstepped a UN mandate with regards to Libya. The US, UK and France tricked the Russians and Chinese into agreeing to a resolution, subsequently forcing regime change when it wasn’t a specific aim. This is partly the reason Russia vetoes any resolution on Syria, knowing that the US and UK will not stop until Assad is deposed. As we all know, Gaddafi was brutally murdered after his fleeing entourage was attacked by the UN.

Theresa May is acutely aware that none of these crimes have been properly investigated, never mind a resulting conviction. The Chilcot inquiry on Iraq was  very clear on its conclusion. Blair had misled, distorted and lied to the British people regarding multiple aspects of the Iraq war (even though the media didn’t describe it like this). Cameron never even faced an inquiry into his part in the destruction of Libya. The RAF were used as an air force for the most extreme criminals, who then went on to provide weapons and ‘rebels’ in the fight against Syria.

Lets not forget that it was these same Libyans that then used a suicide bomber on Manchester Arena and that it was the Home Secretary, Theresa May who allowed this particular group to travel to and from Libya without interference. She is at least guilty of gross incompetence. Salman Abedi and his family were part of community of Libyans living close to each other in Manchester and they were supposed to be under the watchful eye of intelligence agencies. Either these agencies weren’t doing their job or they willfully allowed the Manchester atrocity to go ahead, resulting in the deaths of 22 and maiming of dozens.

Every action has a reaction, unless you’re a politician.

If we had a fair and just legal system, May would not be the Prime Minister at all. She would have been tried for colluding with the terrorists that caused mayhem in Manchester. Blair (and several of his cabinet and advisors) would be looking at us from behind bars, Cameron would be alongside them.

But this is just the tip of the iceberg. If we look at cause and effect, every aspect of foreign policy results in creating friends but overwhelmingly, enemies. We enable the most brutal dictators until we find they have much more control than we imagined, then we find a reason to remove them. Ideally, it will be a military removal and then they can suffer the ‘Shock and Awe’ of carpet bombing vast areas, that are bound to contain thousands of civilians. The added bonus is that government then has to replace these munitions.

The companies that prosper because of war.

Now can you see why we ‘need’ to bomb Syria, despite it being unsubstantiated claims by the most extreme of the militants in Syria?

Theresa May.

So here are the basic reasons May will likely bomb Syria.

There will be no possibility of her ever being brought to trial.

Weapons manufacturers will make billions.

Israel will have the fractured Syria it craves.

Theresa May is fervently pro Israel, even going to the length of redefining what constitutes anti semitism in an attempt to curtail criticism of Israel. By insinuating that justifiable attacks on Israeli human rights crimes are anti semitic, she hoped to be able to lawfully limit the legitimate critics of Israel from exposing their atrocious treatment of Palestinians.

John Woodcock, Labour MP majority of 209 votes.

Woodcock continues to stab Corbyn in the back while the BoD maintain their suffering is significantly worse than that of the Palestinians.

Jeremy Corbyn visited a synagogue to celebrate a Jewish event but it seems he doesn’t associate with the correct type of Jews for Woodcock. A scathing attack by the MP elected by the skin of his teeth and a vocal critic of Corbyn throughout his leadership, Woodcock should try to appreciate the depth of feeling toward Corbyn, which is in stark contrast to his own views.

Voters see that unlike the vast majority of politicians, Corbyn has integrity and to claim such a mild mannered man could harbour secret hatred of Jews is clutching at straws. While Woodcock is using the smear to oust Corbyn the JLC and BoD merely want to bring him under control. Woodcock only recently claimed that he was about to quit the Labour Party and become an independent representative. Close the door on your way out John. If you are typical of the anti Corbyn resentment in the party, you should invite some of your friends with you. You need to start looking at alternative employment too. Maybe like Gillian Merron, you might get a job in promoting Israel, considering your past chair of the Labour Friends of Israel.

This tweet proves the BoD are a pro Israel propaganda organisation.

Meanwhile the BoD tweeted this:

Opera Snapshot_2018-04-03_155126_twitter.com

This is blatant propaganda that exposes the BoD as apologists for the Israeli government. It was a policy by Netanyahu and his goons that arranged dozens of IDF snipers in position to pick off peaceful, unarmed protesters who are trying to inform the world that they have been ethnically cleansed. The BoD lays the blame at the victims door, showing a picture of Palestinians at the internment fence but not the long line of snipers that have been killing them, so I will.

Israeli soldiers are seen next to the border fence on the Israeli side of the border with the northern Gaza Strip

How can this organisation be regarded as respectable enough to hold the moral high ground and criticise Jeremy Corbyn for anti semitism? Even if he was guilty, which he isn’t, how can this propaganda outlet, the BoD, claim that Corbyn’s ties to anything remotely anti semitic can be compared with their clear approval of IDF snipers executing Palestinians?

The JLC and BoD are foreign agents and should be dealt with as such. Mainstream media is a compliant and willing accessory to the air brushing over of Israeli crimes. Incessant complaining about anti semitism always overshadows the real tragedy of innocent Palestinians being slaughtered under the cover of their spurious claims.

A question we ought to continually ask is this:

Is it more difficult to be a Palestinian living under the oppression of an occupier, daily checkpoints, military justice, lack of real opportunities, settler violence or a few snide remarks from uneducated bigots with their anti semitism?

If you really believe that anti semitism is more of a stain on the world’s conscience than the murderous IDF killing Palestinians at will, without ever being held accountable, then you are as racist, prejudiced and exceptionalist as the regime and it’s criminal supporters in Israel.

The largely uncritical organisations such as JLC and BoD are vitally important to distract attention away from the daily killings and torture of the Palestinians. When they stop being the propaganda arm of the Israeli government, then we should start taking the claims of anti semitism seriously.

The current agenda by pro Israeli organisations in the UK are screaming ‘anti semitism!!’ so that we don’t hear the genuine pain and anguish of the victims who were caught in the sights of an IDF snipers rifle.

Israeli’s having fun at the Gaza containment fence.

Nikki Haley gets in to the spirit by vetoing a UN resolution condemning Israeli violence.

The sickening executions (because that’s what they are) by Israel Defence Force on the Gaza border is yet more evidence of a psychopathic culture that knows no bounds. And if you didn’t already regard Nikki Haley as a bunny boiler in the extreme, it’s time to reconsider.

The latest atrocity by Israel, which to varying degrees they commit on a daily basis, reiterates that something is not quite right in the minds of the vast majority of Israeli citizens. The IDF is a conscript army, so that means that most over 18’s have at some point been colluding against the Palestinians by generally making their lives a misery or violently attacking them. It doesn’t mean they have to mistreat or victimise Palestinians but apart from a few exceptions, they do.

Other compelling evidence of mass psychosis are the polls taken during Operation Cast Lead, Operation Pillar of Defense and Operation Protective Edge (notice how the names of each slaughter became more ‘serene’?), which resulted in an approval rate of over 90% for the war crimes committed on the people of Gaza. If they did a consensus today, it would highly likely be a similar approval rate.

But for publicly stating these undisputed facts, numerous Jewish groups in the UK would label me an anti semite. I’ve come to the conclusion I really don’t give a fuck. These verbal vigilante’s can take their restrictions and exemptions to a place where someone might actually care. Why should I worry about a few hurt feelings when people are dying and they won’t condemn it?

If they want to compare graffiti close to synagogue or a snide remark at a bus stop, muttered by a neanderthal who can barely write his name, to a clinical, meticulously organised mass execution and maiming committed on the Gaza border, be my guest.

If the JLC or BoD want to crucify me for reminding them of the old school playground rhyme, ‘sticks and stones may break my bones but words can never hurt me’, that’s up to them. The witch hunt they are carrying out at present has probably given cover to the IDF and silenced Corbyn’s criticism of the clinical murders of Palestinians. And that is what the campaign against Corbyn is all about. The accusations of anti semitism bombarding the Labour leader are to stop him condemning the Israeli violence and uncivilised behaviour which he has, for most of his life, fought against. It has nothing to do with hating Jews and everything to do with rightly condemning a lawless, violent and torturous assault on a people who are not allowed to fight back militarily, because of the Israeli blockade around Gaza. By design, they are sitting ducks.

Not only do they stop weapons from entering, which denies them any way of protecting themselves, the blockade prevents many items you or I take for granted. Water is at a premium with many children being forced to drink it, even though we would consider it too polluted for animals. The UN has declared Gaza will be unfit for human habitation by 2020.

But lets stay on topic and condemn the smirking teenagers or the village idiot fascist for mouthing a childish slur. The march toward the separation barbed wired and probably electrocuted fence that surrounds Gaza was publicised in advance. This isn’t the reaction to civil disorder that turned into a riot situation that many police forces around the world might have to cope with. This is a pre-empted and well coordinated military operation. They set up the snipers, who didn’t have to camouflage because there would be no one to shoot back at them and fitted the drones with noxious substances. Don’t expect accusations of Israel chemical weapons use any time soon.

The fear of being called anti semitic isn’t just restricted to Jeremy Corbyn. How many politicians have condemned the Israeli actions? It’s not just the Labour Party either. Has Theresa May or the clumsy bastard, Boris Johnson called for restraint? If they did, it was very quietly. Has Joan ‘we want both sides to have peace’ Ryan uttered any condemnation? I haven’t heard her and this reveals the fear of not just the Israel critics but it’s allies as well. The JLC, BoD and other pro Israeli groups have even shut down criticism from their own side. If they speak out, they will be confronted with a campaign intended to silence them…. And nothing to do with anti semitism.

*JLC is the Jewish Leadership Council.

*BoD is the Board of Deputies of British Jews.

Blair attempting to influence from the political wilderness.

But he still doesn’t get it, the British public generally despise him.

If Blair publicly announced that he supports any given policy, it would immediately result in considerably more than half the population wanting the opposite. He still doesn’t seem to understand the feeling of contempt most of us have for him. He has been caught lying so many times that anyone believing him might as well wear the village idiot hat. His responsibility for the current Middle East carnage is even more profound than George Bush, because without his support, the dopey american President wouldn’t have had the courage to go it alone. His subsequent and inexplicable employment as the Middle East Peace Envoy was a shocking insult to all those who died as a direct result of his chaos creating policies. Inevitably and predictably, he did set up the conditions in which he would line his own pockets and still allow Israel to increase its suffocating policies towards Palestine.

Blair actually used the eight years masquerading as a peace envoy to create contacts that would accrue vast wealth for him and his parasitic family. His incessant criticism of Jeremy Corbyn only serves to increase the present Labour leaders popularity. He is unable to comprehend that Corbyn is what Labour voters thought they were getting when they elected him all those years ago. Instead they got a marginally watered down Thatcherite manifesto with a couple of morsels for those struggling to survive in society. Even his ‘minimum legal wage’ was a scam. It didn’t ensure a decent standard of living, it was actually detrimental to wage growth and continues to present day, long after the smooth talking illusionist was unceremoniously evicted from the British political scene .

Jeremy Corbyn is everything Tony Blair isn’t. He’s not conning anyone, what you see is what you get. Corbyn has remained on the back benches of the Labour Party because of fraudsters like Blair. He wants a just settlement for the Palestinians, widespread social justice, a health care system that can continue to fill the needs of the people, a foreign policy that actually does good instead of wreaking havoc on weaker nations and many other things that Tony Blair expressly doesn’t want.

Phony Tony still hasn’t realised that every press release he propagates only reminds most people what an absolute prick he is.

Jewish pro Israel groups coordinate Corbyn attacks.

The accusations that Corbyn is somehow the ringleader of a party that allows anti semitism to flourish is a risible. The individuals that are trying to bring him down have an ulterior motive and it has nothing to do with anti semitic behaviour and everything to do with silencing criticism of Israel. As I’ve said before, Corbyn doesn’t have a racist or prejudiced bone in his body. Conflating support for Palestinians as anti semitic is deliberately obscuring the distinct line between campaigning against Israeli policy and disliking Jews, simply because they are Jews.

Primary critics of Corbyn include the Jewish Leadership Council and the Board of Deputies of British Jews. These aren’t fluffy organisations that address UK Jewish needs, they are aggressive pro Israeli groups that are on a par with the discredited American Israel lobby.

The media will support any attacks on Corbyn, no matter where it emanates from. These are well financed and organised lobby groups and a world away from local Methodist Church coffee mornings. They are political heavyweights that promote Israeli propaganda. Despite the overwhelming evidence that Israel is a brutal, oppressive occupier which constantly finds ways to evict Palestinians from their homes, the JLC, BoD and other similar organisations rarely criticise them.

With so many adversaries using incredibly vicious methods to end Corbyn’s tenure as Labour leader, it’s difficult to see how he can survive. But just like he has remained true with his support for the Palestinians, he will show the same determination to create a Labour Party that has few similarities to the Tony Blair era.

One thing is certain, the people and organisations trying to smear Jeremy Corbyn, do not care about the UK. They only want to maintain the status quo, which is the unwavering  support for a government that denies the Palestinians a peaceful existence. Even if that means accusing us all of being anti semites.

 

What is Jeremy Corbyn actually apologising for?

Why is the Labour Party being targeted?

Ever since Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the UK Labour Party, they have been accused of anti semitism. Why did these accusations about the party suddenly appear AFTER he became leader and not before? Was there an influx of bigots elected to the party with him? No, just Corbyn was elected, it wasn’t a General Election. So we can safely say that the structure wasn’t significantly changed by the leadership contest and no personnel were brought in that would convert the left leaning party into fascists.

Did Corbyn allow a fundamental change in Labour policy?

No. Basically, his leadership hasn’t inspired some sort of Nationalist, right wing  undercurrent that could turn the Labour movement into a racist or prejudiced party. Labour has historically had a left wing, socialist identity that was only undermined by Tony Blair. The shyster Blair tricked many of the electorate by allowing a ‘watered down Conservative Party manifesto’ to replace the long held principles of the traditional Labour Party. Whilst Blair was leader of Labour, the voters had a similar choice to the Americans – No choice at all.

Jeremy Corbyn’s promotion changed the party back towards its working class and social care roots. This, it would seem, is when the party suddenly accused of being anti semitic and reviled by the many Jewish groups calling for action to be taken to stop this seismic change  The question is, ‘what occurred that would alter the mindset of the Labour movement?’.

Nothing, the party didn’t change, just the leader.

Corbyn has been in the background of the Labour movement for over forty years. He has been anti war, against racism of any sort, promoting policies to help the less well off in our society and crucially, pro Palestinian. That doesn’t mean anti semitic, unless you use the recently manufactured description of it, created by Theresa May.

Jeremy Corbyn has never been accused of racism or holding prejudices against any other group. He has always campaigned for the rights of minorities and ethnic groups and never criticised any particular religion. He has also been fearless in his commitment to peaceful negotiation and has been criticised many times for having dialogue with widely described ‘extremists’. He preferred talking with the IRA than killing them and has been ostracised for discussions with Hamas and Hezbollah. This background is crucial to understanding the attacks on Corbyn.

The real objective is Corbyn, not the Labour Party.

Corbyn is no anti semite. His passion and commitment to the Palestinian equal rights struggle is the real reason the Jewish groups have attacked the Labour Party. Considering his neutrality in trying to negotiate a peaceful outcome to many disputes, the thought that he would suddenly become hateful to one group or another is laughable. Whether you agree with his political viewpoint or not, Corbyn never has been nor never will be anti semitic, it’s not in his nature.

Here is a list from the Labour Friends of Israel website. Only the MP’s highlighted in red can be regarded as supportive of Corbyn, the others are either neutral or hostile.

So, out of 69 (that we know of) MP’s who are members of Labour Friends of Israel, only 13 can be described as Corbyn allies. The groups demanding action to rid the Labour Party of anti semitism are a consortium of fervent pro Israeli organisations and it is a political move to assassinate the character of Jeremy Corbyn. If the party removed Corbyn today, the allegations would cease… Unless of course, they elected another Palestinian equal rights campaigner.

 

The real reason for the campaign to remove the imaginary anti semitism is because Corbyn’s long held, consistent beliefs are very difficult to undermine. The party in general is much easier, especially when you have the likes of Joan Ryan and Ian Austin who have more interest in the citizens of Tel Aviv than their own constituents in Enfield and Dudley.

Never mind the vigils…. Wake up!!

The minutes silence won’t change anything. Don’t stay silent, contact your political representative and demand answers to terrorist funding.

All these platitudes and messages of defiance will not change anything. Our government are supporting the very people that are twisting religious philosophy to support their own interpretation of it. My own local member of parliament either deliberately lied to me or actually believed that UK aid to Syrian opposition was ‘non lethal’. The White Helmets are murdering terrorists, yet we’ve been funding them, only for their acquaintances and allies to attack us. That’s surmising it’s not all a ruse to get May elected. Her reputation and election lead has nose dived, so I wouldn’t rule anything out.

Our foreign policy, shrouded in secrecy and concealing British involvement in making the lives of other people a misery, is the real problem. For instance, it should  be Syrian pro government supporters who attack us – for OUR support of terrorist elements. Theresa May demanding we should be ‘tougher’ is an absolute joke. She and her government are actively supporting terrorism inflicted on other people, without any concern for ordinary Syrians.

Another effect of our interference around the world is that it actually creates refugees. Do you think the likes of May is concerned about uncontrolled immigration? It isn’t a problem if the infrastructure is upgraded and the whole process is managed. It is a problem if it makes the lives of already struggling communities even more difficult. Pushing refugees (with a whole host of their own problems) on to an area already plagued with many social issues won’t help anyone. May’s promises about reducing immigration have been an utter failure. Her (almost) 20% (19,000) reduction of police officers in seven years will be regarded differently. That is unless you ever require their help. Then you’ll be asked to email them. Roads are becoming much more dangerous places because there are fewer patrol cars and people know they are less likely to be caught doing anything wrong. Speed cameras aside, the roads are largely lawless.

When Theresa May became Prime Minister, her successor as Home Secretary was the even more reprehensible Amber Rudd. Rudd’s family have been embroiled in unsavoury financial dealings. There are accusations of multiple bankruptcies and investors losing huge amounts of money in business dealings with Rudd’s father and brother. Not the sort of background you would expect of someone who would be controlling the nation’s Police force.

Corbyn has been as clean as a whistle during his long and largely low-key political career. One of the lines of attack from the Conservatives appears to be his reluctance to commit mass murder by firing a nuclear weapon. His efforts to resolve the Northern Ireland conflict has been attacked and he believes that dialogue, not bombs should be used to resolve conflict.

It’s just been announced that the people arrested after the recent London attack have all been released. It strikes me as clutching at straws to detain the acquaintances and family of a suspect. However, Theresa May believes the Police should be allowed to question them for weeks on end without being charged. Due process is critical to a truly democratic society and internment cannot be a part of that. The abhorrence known as Guantanamo springs to mind.

Theresa May insists on ever more internet control without a shred of evidence to connect terrorism with web use by extremists. It’s with ‘security’ approval that many terrorists have been almost encouraged to go and fight against Libyan and Syrian governments. For this there will be a price to pay. Only Jeremy Corbyn will stop this practice.

Vote Corbyn for a foreign policy that doesn’t encourage people to hate us.

Labour Party snakes in the grass.

The campaign amongst Corbyn’s own party Members of Parliament has disappeared – Is it because the Labour Party leader appears to be defying the critics with sound policies and a calm temperament?

The move to get rid of Jeremy Corbyn has receded, for the time being at least. I wouldn’t go as far as to predict he might win the UK General Election but he has put up a magnificent fight despite almost every national tv and newspaper relentlessly criticising him. This could be a turning point, not just for the people of the UK but also for the corrupt, warmongering media that has been instrumental in causing misery for many other countries during at least the last 25 years.

Their blatant lies, omissions and even promotion of attacks against countries that never wished us any harm is a war crime. The likes of Blair, Cameron, Brown and May should be tried at the ICC along with the cheerleading press. We shouldn’t underestimate the importance of the media in the illegal and immoral assaults on sovereign nations. We need to hold them to account for not (just) doing their job but actively supporting the criminal elite.

It’s not just an appalling lack of real journalism, it’s the uncritical headlines that have given the lying politicians their credibility amongst many who don’t have suspicious minds. Just because the majority of people have believed the coalition of smooth talking psychopathic liars and unrelenting propaganda doesn’t mean they are stupid. They have been duped by a well oiled tag team that has had the most gratuitous lust for violence on an unprecedented scale. There should be no hiding for the disgusting Murdoch family and all the other press hierarchy.

Even if Labour do not win the election, Corbyn’s performance has proven his effectiveness in fighting for the poorest in society. The Blairites won’t give up easily and if Corbyn’s popularity increases their chances of being re-elected, he shouldn’t expect any thanks. Many of them are Conservatives in Labour clothing and should not be trusted, regardless of the overall result. The likes of the despicable Ian Austin, Simon Danczuk, Hilary Benn amongst many others should be cast to the fringes, just as they have done to Corbyn for many years.

They are indeed snakes in the grass.
