Corbyn ‘more of a Pol Pot guy’

The Daily Mash has its own take on John McDonnell's quoting from Chairman Mao.

'JEREMY Corbyn has apologised after the shadow chancellor quoted Mao in the Commons yesterday, clarifying that he always preferred Pol Pot.

The Labour leader said that John McDonnell had unfortunately missed key policy sessions where it was agreed that Mao was a capitalist running dog whose Great Leap Forward was far too easy on the peasants.

Corbyn continued: "I always thought Mao was a bit of a poser, you know? '

Read the rest, I think it's satire...

Did John McDonnell really quote from Mao?

I listened open mouthed as John McDonnell, Labour's (current) Shadow Chancellor quoted from Mao's Little Red Book. It was only when I got home that I saw the video. Can you imagine the furore if a Conservative politician quoted form a right-wing genocidal dictator? This reminded me of something I wrote back in 2011.

'In the last few days I have seen two rather odd examples of the way that a dictator considered a Communist can still be revered in a way that Hitler could (quite rightly) not. Westminster University is holding an exhibition called 'Poster Power: Images from Mao's China, Then and Now' at its 309 Regents Street building. Here's the blurb:
'Posters from Mao’s China exercise an enduring appeal to audiences across the globe, more than sixty years after the events that produced them. They are revisited in modern and contemporary Chinese art and commercial design, and curated in exhibitions in China, the US and Europe.

So why does imagery produced to support a revolutionary ideology half a century ago continue to resonate with current Chinese and Western audiences? What is the China we see between posters of the Mao years and their contemporary consumerist reinventions? How do we explain the diverse responses such imagery evokes? And what does the appeal of the posters of Mao’s China tell us about the country’s ‘red legacy’?

Poster Power explores some of these questions through setting up a visual dialogue between posters produced between the 1950s and the 1970s and their echoes in recent years. With posters from the University of Westminster’s Chinese Poster Collection, Chinese video art, documentary film, photographs, and contemporary items such as playing cards and nightclub advertising, the exhibition invites viewers to explore the posters’ ambiguities of appeal to their audiences. As visual reminders of both autocratic rule and exuberant youthful idealism, they evoke diverse responses, challenging the idea that Cultural Revolution poster propaganda transmitted a single, transparent meaning. These posters’ capacity to inspire ambiguous responses opens up new narratives of what remains a complex period of China’s recent past, and sheds light on its changing significance in contemporary China.'
Why not a word, nor even an allusion to the around 50 million people killed by the Chinese regime since 1949? why not a mention of the many millions tortured by the Chinese regime and forced to give up their "intellectual" jobs to work on the land as "workers", would that not have resonance for current students? Why not a mention of those killed around Tienanmen Square? Why not a mention of the invasion of Tibet and the destruction of so much Buddhist life? Why not a mention of the human rights abuses that occurred around the Beijing Olympics?

The other example was in an antique shop the other week where there was a small number of photos of Chairman Mao in a case and nobody seemed to think this was odd.

Can you imagine the furore if an antique shop had a collection of Adolph Hitler images on display? Can you imagine the protests if a British University held an exhibition of posters from Nazi Germany and did not put them into context?

Adolph Hitler's Nazi Germany killed around seven million people and the regime is rightly abhorred. Mao's communist regime in China killed many many more (as did Stalin's communist regime in the Soviet Union) and yet there is hardly a word of protest in remembrance now. Schools teach the evils of Nazism & the BBC raise the subject regularly, and quite rightly so, but the equally (or more) evils of Mao and Stalin's communist regimes are mentioned far less; why is that the case? Maybe it is something to do with the backgrounds of a large proportion of the BBC, Labour Party leadership and educational elite in this country; once a Marxist, always a Marxist?'


Most Muslims are peaceful

Indeed they are, but the 'peaceful majority are irrelevant'...Brigitte Gabriel explains why.

The "Disproportionate focus" on Israel

The BBC have a disproportionate focus on Israel, the Balen Report would no doubt reveal why.

Europe and the West's future according to the exiled Archbishop of Mosul: 'I Have Lost My Diocese to Islam; You in the West Will Also Become Victims of Muslims' per Breitbart

Whilst too many people in the West wring their hands about the possible backlash against Muslims in the aftermath of the latest Islamist terrorist attack on Paris, the Chaldean Archbishop of Mosul, Iraq, has a warning for us:
'... Your liberal and democratic principles are worth nothing here. You must consider again our reality in the Middle East, because you are welcoming in your countries an ever growing number of Muslims. Also you are in danger. You must take strong and courageous decisions, even at the cost of contradicting your principles. You think all men are equal, but that is not true: Islam does not say that all men are equal. Your values are not their values. If you do not understand this soon enough, you will become the victims of the enemy you have welcomed in your home.'

Harry's Place » It’s the Maths, Stupid - The must read article of the week, month, maybe year

This article by Saul Freeman for Harry's Place is a must read. It says what many Jews in Britain think and fear. 

We have been abandoned and worse by the left of British politics and of course by the institutionally anti Israel BBC. Maybe there is no place for us in Britain any more, maybe we should all move to where we are still wanted, Israel or to where we won't be noticed or hated quite so much, but where...

Andrew Neil with a message for the Paris attackers

Nice words but unfortunately the modern France isn't what it was. I fear the "Islamist scum" could well win this one.

Ben Shapiro: First They Came for the Jews

Another Ben Shapiro masterclass

Ben Shapiro: The Myth of the Tiny Radical Muslim Minority

There are some logical flaws and inconsistencies in his counting but the general point is well made and stands - Radicals are not a tiny minority of Muslims.

Say what you like about Boris Johnson but he's a class act

Sky News (@SkyNews) tweeted at 5:38 PM on Tue, Nov 17, 2015:
Will Boris Johnson be singing La Marseillaise at England v France tonight? Well, he's recited the words for us:

The Quran and the Siege of Paris per David Wood

Before and after the Paris attacks I have had people on Twitter telling me that Koran verse 5:32 shows that Islam is a religion of peace as it says:
'If any one killed a person, it would be as if he killed the whole of mankind'
I've heard this argument presented on BBC programmes too. 

The people who post this never respond, with other than abuse, when I ask them what the rest of that verse says and why they have edited it. And the BBC presenters never ask that question at all.
Here's the whole of that verse:
'On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.'
Verse 5:32 is for the Children of Israel, the Jews, to abide by, not for Muslims. 

Now some might argue that although the verse says it applies to the Children of Israel it really applies to anyone. That would be nice, wouldn't it? Well no as that little clause that the quoters omit from the very middle of their quote the part that says:
'unless it be for murder or spreading mischief in the land.' 
If someone is 'spreading mischief' they can still be killed. Islamists would say that attacking Muslims in Muslim lands was spreading mischief.

I've posted some videos by David Wood before, here's his recent one that makes the same point as I do above, albeit rather better than I have. He also goes on to explain verse 5:33, the verse that is aimed at Muslims, spoiler - it's not as peaceful as verse 5:32. 

Islamic State is plotting deadly cyber-attacks says George Osborne per BBC News but it's protecting Jeremy Corbyn that is still the BBC's priority

This BBC report contains an odd section:
'"You do not protect people by sitting around and wishing for another world. You have to act in this one. And that means being prepared to use military force where necessary," Mr Cameron said.'
Odd comments if you rely on the BBC for your news, anyway. This line of David Cameron was aimed at Jeremy Corbyn after his ridiculously right-on but impractical musings not that the BBC explain that. For all his faults, and even the BBC are not so blind as to be unable to see them, he is the leader of the BBC's beloved Labour Party and thus must be protected from criticism and ridicule.

Jeremy Corbyn - seriously?

Is Jeremy Corbyn serious? If he is then he really is somewhat divorced from reality. I don't think that PCSOs are going to prevent a terrorist attack, even less tackle some terrorists in the act.

"... the attacks have nothing to do with Islam..."

Theresa May tells us that "... the attacks have nothing to do with Islam...".

The trouble is that ISIS say diferent, that's The Islamic State. Now who is likely to be the bigger expert on Islam: Theresa May or ISIS? Please watch this previous post.

ISIS operatives in amongst the 'refugees' - who could see it happening?

ISIS operatives in amongst the 'refugees' - who could see it happening? James Clapper, the Director of US National Intelligence, Robert Spencer and others could. Did Angela Merkel not do her due diligance?

Is the West at war with Islam? ISIS openly say that they are at war with the West.

Nigel Farage saw that open borders for 'refugees' would leave room for ISIS operatives to infiltrate the EU

Nigel Farage saw that open borders for 'refugees' would leave room for ISIS operatives to infiltrate the EU. Of course the BBC and the liberal estalishment knew that he was wrong, what say they now?

Who are Islamic State?

I have posted this Vice News report before but I think that it needs watching again especially by those who say Islamic State are nothing to do with Islam. Parts of this video shows how civic society behaves under Sharia law. Everything within IS is shaped by and defined by Islam according to the Koran. "...those who don't obey will be forced"

Watch the Belgian Islamist preacher and his son, listen to the men and boys that speak afterwards? Now ask yourself how many Islamist preachers, their children and others think the same but are still living in Brussels, Paris, Amsterdam, London, Bradford, Birmingham etc etc etc? How about the nine-year old boy proudly declaring that he's off to camp to learn how to use a Kalashnikov and then to fight the Russian and Americans - the infidels. By the way, does anyone believe that the 'children' that Israel are vilified for arresting are not of a similar ilk?

Listen to the delightful young chap from 33:48 "We promise you car bombs and explosives... we'll destroy the enemies of the religion, all of them" - How many of the young male 'refugees' being welcomed into Europe share similar views? Do we even know? Do our leaders care? Do the BBC?

Quarter of British Muslims sympathise with Charlie Hebdo terrorists - Telegraph

This report following the previous Islamic terrorist attack on Paris is revealing and scary. 

I wonder how many British Muslims support the most recent terrorist attack on Paris.

Why the Bataclan?

Something that the BBC won't report.

Sunday, 15 November 2015


'Officials said the passport holder entered Greece on Oct. 3 through Leros, one of the eastern Aegean islands that tens of thousand of people fleeing war and poverty have been using as a gateway into the 28-nation EU. Serbian police said the holder of the passport then registered at its border entry with Macedonia on Oct. 7. Croatian police said the passport holder was checked at a refugee center on Oct. 8, but the man was not flagged as suspicious and continued his journey toward Hungary and Austria, according to police spokeswoman Helena Biocic.'
And five weeks later... 

How many more such terrorists have got into Europe during the recent open doors experiment? Will Merkel, Hollande etc apologise for their stupidity? Will the BBC apologise for their cheerleading?

You may not be interested in war but war is interested in you per Spectator Blogs

'They may hate us for what we do but, more significantly, they despise us – all the western world – for who we are and how we live. This is so obvious by now that it risks seeming banal but it demands restating because, even now, even after all this, there remain too many people who deny the truth.'

Paris attacks: Omar Ismail Mostefai identified as assailant per BBC News

There's an odd line in this BBC report

Apparently Omar Ismail Mostefai 'is said to have regularly attended the mosque in Luce, close to Chartres.'

Hold on, if he regularly attended a mosque then why did he carry out this terrorist attack? 

If Islam is a/the 'religion of peace' then isn't that a little odd. Surely the more one attends a place of worship for a religion of peace the more peaceful one would become?

Phones need 'bed mode' to protect sleep per BBC News

Apparently 'Smartphones, tablets and e-readers should have an automatic "bedtime mode" that stops them disrupting people's sleep, says a leading doctor.'
They already do, it's called the off button.

'Crimes' That Jihadists Will Kill You For

'Militant Islamism's war on all of us appears to be accelerating. Christians, Jews, Hindus, atheists, women, gays, and millions upon millions of Muslims who reject the Islamist template—all of us are considered to be Quranically sanctioned targets for elimination by a demented and determined enemy.
We can continue to make believe that jihadists are merely reacting to intolerable provocations by the perfidious West, or we can credit them with possession of a well-developed supremacist theology of global expansionism, and with a desire to resuscitate medieval values. Militant Islam's war on pluralism and modernity has a thousand fronts, and, in the minds of  jihadists, the crimes of their enemies are limitless. '
More including a list of the crimes that we can be killed for here

palestine célébrer 14 11 2 015 attentats à Paris - Palestinians celebrate last night's terrorist attacks on Paris

I don't suppose that BBC will show such video.

Not entirely surprising news, but news the BBC won't report

French magazine Le Point says the Bataclan theater has for years been the target of anti-Zionist groups as its Jewish owners often put on pro-Israel events.

The publication quotes a member of the extremist group Army of Islam, who told French security services in 2011 that, "We had planned an attack against the Bataclan because its owners are Jews

The BBC will of course hide this inconvenient fact.

News about the Paris terrorist attacks that The Telegraph are reporting but the BBC aren't

The ICC Test rankings

I've read this morning of the shock that England are going to drop to sixth in the ICC Test rankings.
Look at the table at the link below and you'll see how easy it is to rise or fall between second and sixth place, only seven points separated these teams last week.

It's bad but not that bad.

Unfortunately the one team that is clear of the rest in this table is South Africa and that's where England tour this winter...

Seinfeld: The Leaning Susan

A fulllength Seinfeld episode but with a twist. The voice impersonations are uncanny especially Jerry and Elaine.

Where's Gaza?

The BBC illustrate their report of the crashed Russian aeroplane with a map of the Sinai.

Now this map doesn't name Egypt's neighbours, and the BBC standard explanation for that is that it is their convention not to name countries that aren't pertinent to the story. Whatever you think of that explanation, the BBC are at least fairly consistent in the way that they apply it.

Now take a second look at that map, do you spot the omission? To the north east of the Sinai is Israel, however much the BBC might wish it wasn't, but also is Gaza. Odd that the BBC don't mark this territory separately. If I had the time I might create a fake identity, that of a obsessive supporter of the Palestinian people, and complain that the BBC were guilty of wiping Gaza off the map - but  don't!

Hidden camera reveals: Why was a Christian activist expelled from temple mount?

This will not be shown by BBC who prefer to spread the Palestinian narrative narrative that Jews are trying to interfere with Muslims worshipping at Al Aqsa Mosque. Instead it seems that the Muslims see the whole of the Temple Mount as their mosque and thus no Jews or Christians are allowed there.

Egyptian TV Host and historian agree: burning Jews the solution

I'm getting so angry with the main stream media's bashing of Israel and willingness to spread the lie that the Arab Muslim world has no problem with Jews, just with Israel.
Here's yet another example of Muslims hating Jews and wishing them all dead.
Presumably the BBC will claim that he's being mistranslated and means Jews but that'll be as convincing as when they tried to persuade us of that re Lyse Doucet's Gaza documentary.

Standing up to the delegitimisation of Israel

' The Asian shooting championship, which starts in Kuwait this week, has been stripped of its Olympic qualifying status after an Israeli delegate was refused an entry visa, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) said on Thursday.
"Upon request of the International Sports Shooting Federation (ISSF), the IOC Executive Board today revoked the Olympic qualification status of the Asian Shooting Championship taking place in Kuwait City between 1 and 12 November," it said in a statement.
"The decision comes after the designated technical delegate from the ISSF, Yair Davidovich (Israel), who was due to supervise the event on behalf of the ISSF, was denied a visa by the Kuwaiti Immigration Department."'

But not at the institutionally anti Israel BBC.

Gaza University Dean of Quranic Studies Approves Killing Jewish Women and Children

Dr. Subhi Al-Yaziji, Dean of Quranic Studies at the Islamic University of Gaza, recently said: "All Jews in Palestine today are fair game - even the women." "Every single Jew in Palestine is a combatant, even the children," he said. In the Hamas Al-Aqsa TV interview, aired on October 16, 2015, Al-Yaziji further said that terror attacks "should be carried out in the very heart of the enemy - in Haifa, Jaffa, Tel Aviv, and Hadera."

Something that the institutionally anti Israel BBC will not report.

That reminds me - another Palestinian mother

Yesterday's post reminded me of some video that I have posted previously. It's of another Palestinian mother, this time one whose young son had a heart complaint and was treated free of charge in an Israeli hospital. Watch the whole video, see how she is amazed by the generosity of the Jewish people bringing presents and giving to all patients whether Jewish or Muslim but also...

Please explain how Israel can make peace with people who can have their child treated in an Israeli hospital but also say that:
"Death is natural for us, we're not afraid to die"
"It's a religious thing. It's heresy to say that Jerusalem isn't ours."
"Life is precious but not to us. We feel that life is nothing. Life isn't worth a thing. That's why we have suicide bombers. They're not afraid to die, it's natural."
"We cry out in joy and celebrate when someone becomes a shahid (martyr)"
"Life isn't precious"

An interesting claim re The Balen Report from Kais aka @revthe banker on Twitter

Yes this Twitter anti-Israel individual claims to know the Balen Report's summary. Oddly he refuses to tell me what it said.

So either he is one of the few people to have read the Balen Report or he's a liar, which do you think?

Parts of London have higher TB rates than Iraq or Rwanda per BBC News

The BBC report that parts of London now have a rate of tuberculosis infection higher than Rwanda or Iraq. The BBC report is keen to persuade is not to blame this on immigration:
'The rate of infection among UK-born Londoners has risen, while among the non-UK-born it has fallen - and the report said it would be wrong to assume TB was a disease of migrants.'
Of course rates are not measures of absolute numbers and that last section isn't saying what the BBC wants you to think that it is. 

The BBC want you to think that line says that it would be wrong to assume TB was a disease caused by immigration. Whereas it actually means that TB is no longer a disease just of migrants because it has spread.

I read that BBC report and was reminded of a report I read back in the early 2000s that said that mass immigration from Eastern Europe was bringing with it TB, a disease that had all but been eradicated from the UK. I seem to remember that claim being dismissed as racist at the time and the fuss went away, unlike the TB.
Take a look at this New Scientist report  from January this year. Here's a section that needs wider attention:
'Russia and Eastern Europe still have high rates of MDR TB today. Spiro says that many of the cases he sees in London, the TB capital of Europe, can be traced back to those countries. "The control over treatment regimes out there is dreadful," he says. "It's chaos." The number of MDR cases has been rising in England from 28 cases per year in 2000 to 81 cases in 2012.'
So do you believe the, so far as I am aware, independent New Scientist or the decidedly pro immigration BBC? The choice is yours.

French Rabbi of "Peace" Synagogue Stabbed by Muslim Terrorist Shouting "Allahu Akbar" per Frontpage Mag

Some news that you won't see reported on the institutionally anti Israel BBC.
'Rabbi Yehuda Malul Rabbi of the Bar Yochai shull in Marseille, tells Behadrey Haredim what had happened: "This is the rabbi of the synagogue Menuchat Shalom (Peaceful Rest) in the city center and one of the shul members, who were on their way to synagogue for shachris (morning prayers). Passing through downtown, they were attacked by a young man of Arab appearance".

"The young man shouted "Yahud (Jew), Allah Akbar' and attacked the rabbi with his fists while shouting 'Itbah al-Yahud' (Slaughter the Jews), and the rabbi fell to the floor. A Jew who went to the side of the rabbi tried to protect him, but the young man pulled out a knife and stabbed the man in the abdomen. The Rabbi, Baruch Hashem (Thank G-d), was not hurt and continued to shul, but the Jew who was stabbed was rushed to the emergency room, where doctors said it was a real miracle, and that the knife was blocked due to the heavy coat he was wearing, and if not for the coat, the injury could have been critical."'

The Two Hundred and Eighth Weekly "No Shit Sherlock" Award

'Germany's security and intelligence agencies expressed alarm over the influx of refugees and migrants who harbor radical Islamic views and hatred of Jews, according to a Sunday report in Welt am Sonntag.

According to a security document obtained by the paper and read by top-level agency personnel, "We are importing Islamic extremism, Arab anti-Semitism, national and ethnic conflicts of other peoples as well as a different societal and legal understanding."

The newspaper wrote that security sources warn that "the integration of hundreds of thousands of illegal migrants Germany is no longer possible in light of the number and already existing parallel societies."

The term "parallel societies" in Germany is frequently defined as insulated Muslim communities that have little or no contact with mainstream society.'

This is the sort of article that journalists at the institutionally anti Israel BBC should be made to read, that MPs current and past like Richard Burden, Lynn Jones and Gerald Kaufman should be questioned about when they make their claims of Palestinian sovereignty, and that every pro Palestinian/anti Israel campaigner should be made to read as well.
