The haters have their knives out again. Are you happy to be led by them? [STRONG LANGUAGE]

Attacked: Zarah Sultana.

This is a plea for reason.

A commemorative event yesterday prompted some people to post the following on Twitter:

Sadly, it also provoked a few into posting things like this:

The hate was aimed at a Labour MP named Zarah Sultana, and was in response to her tweet (above).

It seems she had tweeted support for a video that demanded the release of Palestinians being held by Israeli authorities, who were described as “political prisoners” in the clip. Some of these people are alleged to be terrorists who have murdered Israeli children.

Not one of her critics bothered to ask whether she had been aware of this when she tweeted her support.

And some very well-equipped critics also pointed to allegedly anti-Semitic tweets posted by Ms Sultana in the past:

But This Writer understands that she had already apologised for the interpretation placed on those tweets, and explained what she had meant.

Who is the hater in this situation?

It is entirely possible that Ms Sultana has been responsible for anti-Semitism in the past; it is possible this happened by mistake, and it has been said that she explained herself – clearly to the satisfaction of the Labour leadership or she would never have been a Parliamentary candidate.

She may have posted her support for the release of the Palestinians with anti-Semitic intent, but there’s no overt evidence for that. It has all been implied.

And it has led to an outpouring of hatred such as This Writer hasn’t seen in a fair few months. Brace yourself because some of this is extreme:

Some commentators have suggested that this is the opening volley of a new campaign to paint Labour as anti-Semitic; an attempt to push new leader Keir Starmer into becoming a servant of those who claim to speak for all UK Jews – but are believed to have more in common with the foreign policy interests of the Israeli government. Other Labour Party members are reporting increased trolling by those claiming to fight anti-Semitism.

Does it matter?

I see no evidence of malicious intent in this MP.

But I see extreme malice on the part of her aggressors, who are attacking her on extremely flimsy grounds.

So I must ask:

Who do you think is motivated by hate? And are you willling to be led by people like that?

    I think we know the answer to that.Zionism must attack or it will surely find itself attacked for the racist creed it is.The more that people come to understand what is happening in Israel/Palestine,the more hysterical will the attacks from Zionists become.

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      Zionism itself isn’t necessarily racist – it’s simply the desire for the Jewish people to make a home in the land that is most associated with them. There’s no reason this has to be done violently; co-habitation with others is perfectly reasonable. The problem is that there are violent people with a desire to inflict pain on others, who are using the label of Zionism as justification for their crimes. In my opinion.

    It just goes on and on I’m agast at some of these replies at those who speak the truth that modern day Jerusalem is killing people that itself is a crime but never mind they believe that you are a hater open your eyes we have the most vile corrupt lot in power and little Tories are not far behind in using this to keep you quite but while the Nazis killed many Jewish they also killed gypsies poles and alot more

    1. Mike Sivier Post author

      For clarity: this event is specifically about what happened to Jewish people; there are others for everyone the Nazis persecuted.

    Future scenario : England play Israel in a football World Cup qualifier.

    The BOD, right wing Jews, Israeli stooges and 1001 zionist trolls accuse the England team, and all its supporters, of being anti-semitic by virtue of the fact that they want Israel to lose, and demand that they all be disciplined and banned. The BOD demands the right to pick the England team.

    Far fetched ? Seems to me that we’re well on the road to this and even more idiotic examples….

    (Dont worry – I’m already an anti-semite apparantly, having seen what the Israeli state is doing in Palestine and not liking it one bit. Had I not already left Labour, I’d no doubt be purged in the near future anyway….)
