From the outset of this latest massacre, the Zionist terrorist state of Israel had only one aim, to destroy all semblance of resistance. As the days move on and the number murdered passes the 1,000 mark, we have yet to hear any condemnation from our government.
In fact, the propaganda machine of the terrorist state can claim one victory that it has managed to sway some ‘Muslims’ to drop the call for a condemnation and recognition of the crime being committed against the Gazans. Instead they opted to meet our government ‘half-way’ by now calling for only a ceasefire. I am sure you have seen the petitions and text messages that are lobbying for a ‘ceasefire’.
Allah informs us, “It is only Satan that suggests to you the fear of his allies. So, do not fear them, and fear Me if you are believers” (Qur’an 3:175).
Can it be that we have swallowed the lie, that peace is what the Palestinians want? Far from it, what they want is justice and it is only with justice that peace can be achieved. That is the nature of Man, as created by Allah and as embodied by all races, cultures and religion.
I heard that in the meeting with the Foreign Secretary (Monday 12 Jan 09), Haras Rafiq, Majid Nawaz, Ed Husain were falling over themselves to let David Miliband know that they believed the government has done more than enough and is happy with the government’s efforts so far. In fact they felt that the issue wasn’t what the government had been doing, rather the issue has been one of communication! Yep, that’s right, the government’s failure was that it did not communicate its effort efficiently to the Muslim masses! (Can hear the ring and see the £ signs in their eyes!)
But the most amazing bit of information has to be that the invitation to the meeting excluded Palestinians! I wonder who did the inviting? On Monday, the Foreign Secretary had to deal with this issue at Parliament.
Sir Menzies Campbell asked, “But is not the blunt truth that while we discuss this the Israeli Government persist in disproportionate military action, using F-15s, F-16s, Apache helicopters and tanks at a terrible cost to human life? If any other democratic state were behaving in that way, would we not by now be considering what other economic and diplomatic steps were available to us? Are the Government considering any such steps?”
To which the Foreign Secretary responded by saying “We do not believe that economic sanctions on Israel are the way to engage or to influence Israel—[Hon. Members: "Why not?"] We do not believe that the isolation of Israel is the way to achieve influence with it….”
Pray, tell us why it is okay to place economic sanctions on the Palestinians, why it is okay to engage the Palestinians by way of boycotting its democratically elected government? Also, while you’re thinking, do tell us why it is okay not to condemn the massacre? Is it because you do not see this massacre as a crime?
What about the incident when the Israeli’s killed 4 year old Shahd and then set dogs upon her dead body, to be eaten! Will you not condemn this?
Blaming Hamas does not wash anymore, even CNN admits the truce was broken by Israel! Further, you can stop peddling the Zionist lie about Mahmoud Zahar!
Sir Gerald Kaufman said, “…may I ask him [David Milliband] what the international reaction would be if Hamas had slaughtered nearly 900 Israelis and subjected nearly 1.5 million Israelis to degradation and deprivation? Is it not an incontrovertible fact that Olmert, Livni and Barak are mass-murderers and war criminals— [ Interruption. ] Yes. And they bring shame on the Jewish people whose star of David they use as a flag in Gaza, but whose ethos and morals go completely against what this Israeli Government are doing.”
Peter Kilfoyle asked, “… On armaments for Israel, he [David Milliband] said just a moment ago that he would very much like to see the prevention of arms going to terrorist organisations. That is the case for everybody in this House, and on the basis of what we have just heard and what he himself just said, will he undertake to ensure that no arms at all go to Israel at the moment, given that it is guilty in many people’s eyes of state-sponsored terrorism with its activities in the Gaza strip?”
You’re going to love the response, “As I said in my statement, I do not think that it is right or appropriate to compare a democratic state with a terrorist organisation or an organisation that uses terrorist means…”
WHAT! Hamas is a democratically elected government. It is also representing a nation that is occupied, dealing with the mess created by our acquiescence to Zionist terrorism in the first place!
And since our Foreign Secretary loves democracy so much, can he tell us what he thinks of the fact that 2 out of 3 main Arab parties have been barred from participating in this ‘beacon’ of Israeli democracy?
Marsha Singh Said, “… The killing goes on. Is it not time for stronger action? Is it not time that we expelled the ambassador of Israel and brought our ambassador back from Israel? Is it not time that we called for international sanctions against Israel?”
Of course, most of the debate tried to blame Hamas and we wouldn’t expect anything less, but at least there are a few non-Muslims (and of Jewish origin) who recognise the injustice and spoke up against it. These few are joined by many thousands that have marched with us the last two weekends.
In these days of great tragedy, we must not lose our heads. First of all we should know that the government is engaging with individuals who have no credibility in the community, apart from the MCB and three others, the rest of the ‘motley crew’ are nothing but self-serving vultures, feeding on the dead flesh of the Palestinians.
Second, Hamas is a true resistance movement that is standing up for the rights of the Palestinians, whereas Fatah and specifically Abu Mazen have capitulated to the colonial mindset. Of course Abu Mazen can prove me wrong by holding a general election and allowing Hamas to participate and then we can all agree on the winner. Third, the lack of any real action by our government and the international community has been consistent throughout the many years of oppressive occupation the Palestinians have had to endure, let’s not fall out of the pram over it now! Fourth, the consequences on the Arab governments that tacitly and actively supported this massacre will come home to roost. Fifth, be wary of those that blame the victims, those who blame Palestinians or Hamas, they are like those sick men or women who blame the woman who had been raped, saying she brought it upon herself.
Let us use the opportunity to better engage ourselves and work with the thousands of British citizens that have had enough of the lies. Let us work to ensure the truth of the Palestinian tragedy is not covered up by the Zionist machinery and its allies!
