The Flour Massacre: Israel murders hundreds, wounds 1,000 civilians in war crime during aid delivery

Israel’s military has murdered at least 150 hungry people and wounded 1,000 others, targeting thousands of starving people at Al Rasheed Street in northern Gaza while they were waiting for humanitarian aid.

Here’s what happened according to Al-Jazeera – in two accounts:

Here’s a far more personal message about what happened:

And here’s footage of the actual event, along with information from Gaza’s Ministry of Health:

Another person account:

This is a war crime.

There is no other way to describe it. Israel didn’t even try to hide its intention, which was to murder Palestinian civilians, and send a message to those who weren’t murdered – that they will not be allowed to take humanitarian food aid; they’ll be shot if they try.

But the alternative is starvation.

It’s like a sick game of Russian roulette.

Whoever thought of this must be as twisted as whoever decided to hold a children’s party at a border crossing to stop aid convoys entering Gaza.

Whatever the nature of the minds behind it, there can only be one conclusion:

Israel is now admitting it is committing genocide. It is, as the lady in the GaZa Voice video described it: a holocaust.

The Tory government is deliberately obstructing compensation for Windrush scandal – and other – victims

This ship has sailed: it seems that hopes of the Windrush generation to be compensated for being victimised by the Home Office are disappearing over the horizon, like the ship that brought them here so many decades ago.

Here’s what’s going on:

This Writer understands that the government stole – that’s right, call it what it is:  stole – £4 billion from WASPI women who died before they could be compensated for the harm done to them by raising the state pension age.

That’s enough to plug the gap in local council funding, but – how strange! – the money isn’t going there either!

Are you angry yet? If so, you’re not nearly angry enough.

Now, Age UK is reporting that the Windrush generation is being failed by the Home Office yet again, with 87 per cent of people who deserve compensation still waiting for it.

Still not angry?

When will you want action about this? When the government harms you instead?

Police should never have employed Wayne Couzens, report finds. But they did, along with how many more?

Endangered by the police: This Site published the infographic above in 2021. We have seen no material changes in the police since then.

Does everybody feel better or worse, now we have a report showing that Wayne Couzens – the rapist and murderer of Sarah Everard, should never have been allowed to be a police officer?

The report shows multiple failures to identify Couzens’s danger to women and unsuitability to be a member of the police, saying they were missed by three forces.

Missed? Or ignored?

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Read:

Sarah Everard’s family have said she was kidnapped and murdered by Wayne Couzens because he was armed with police powers he should never have had, after an official report revealed new and damning failures by police who missed his prolific sexual offending dating back almost 20 years.

The failures laid out in the report by Lady Elish Angiolini are worse than previously thought, and she concludes Couzens should never have been a police officer. She highlighted a series of chances to spot his danger to women and his unsuitability to be an officer that were missed by repeated bungling in three forces.

He was a Metropolitan police officer and entrusted with a gun as part of the parliamentary and diplomatic protection command.

Some of the allegations the inquiry highlights were not reported to police before Couzens went hunting for a woman on London’s streets in March 2021, but in all, eight allegations were passed to officers, with next to nothing done.

This Writer does not for one moment believe that the contents of the Angiolini report will do anything to deter police forces like the Met from employing serial rapists, murderers and/or other offenders; they simply don’t care and never have.

My advice to women is: never be alone with any police officer, under any circumstances. Always have somebody there to witness what they say and do to you. If they stop you alone on the street, go to the nearest house and seek help from there.

Yes – I’m making the police seem as bad as the criminals from whom they are supposed to protect us.

That’s because – from a wealth of evidence over the past years and with apologies to the many who do try to uphold the law – we have to believe that they are.

Jeremy Corbyn should sue Nigel Farage over this outrageous falsehood

Stranglehold: The signer was actually interpreting a comment in a previous Nigel Farage TV appearance, but it works equally well to describe feelings across the nation at this right-wing mouthpiece’s misrepresentation of former Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.

The reason other politicians keep smearing Jeremy Corbyn with false accusations of anti-Semitism is that he keeps letting them get away with it.

Mr Corbyn’s attitude is that, if it isn’t hurting people other than himself, he’s big enough not to worry about it.

The problem with that is that it harms his supporters, who are also smeared with the same allegation; they may be said to be supporting an anti-Semite.

Nigel Farage has appeared on GB News, saying the following:

This Writer knows of no occasion when Mr Corbyn has ever suggested that “the Jews run the world”, and I think Farage should be dragged into a courtroom to explain exactly why he said such a thing.

Sadly, I doubt Mr Corbyn will be bothered – and in this failure he is letting us all down.

More than half of UK councils are set to go bankrupt in next Parliament

Councils are set to increase their tax bill for residents, but that won’t stop them going bankrupt.

Remember that crisis in local council funding This Site mentioned the other day?

Well, more than half of the UK’s councils have warned that they’ll run out of money during the next Parliament if central government doesn’t change its funding regime – whichever party/s form it:

The Local Government Information Unit (LGIU) has found that 51% of senior officials across the UK think their councils will go bankrupt in the next five years unless major reform is introduced.

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

The LGIU report also suggested that even those who stay in the black will face some bumps in the road.

Just 4% of nationwide councils feel confident in the current local government finance system – and a mere 6% are happy with Downing Street’s current approach to it.

Nine in 10 councils are looking at hiking fees on parking and environmental waste or raising council tax to cope with looming bankruptcy, while one in 10 will cut SEND services – Special Educational Needs and Disability – as well as children’s care services.

A fifth want to sell their publicly-owned assets, while more than half are relying on their financial reserves to stay afloat.

And – oops! Still no ideas from either the Tories or the other Tories Labour. Business as usual from those two, then.

Israel stops humanitarian aid getting to Gaza by road – so Jordan flies it in

If anybody still has any doubt that Israel is committing genocide in Gaza – it’s own little holocaust of Palestinians – it should be dispelled by this.

Not only did Israelis decide to block a border crossing into Gaza in order to prevent humanitarian aid from getting in, but they did it be organising a picnic, complete with a bouncy castle – as though depriving one’s fellow human beings of the necessities of life is a fun activity for children:

I wonder how the members of Queen feel about their song being used in this way?

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

Never mind; the Israelis were foiled anyway.

But not enough aid is getting through. If you watched the clip to the end, you’ll have seen that half a million people – a quarter of the population of Gaza – are facing famine.

It is more than a month since the International Court of Justice ruled that Israel may be committing a genocide in Gaza, and that Israel must provide a report to show what it does to prevent harm falling on civilians; Israel ignored it.

Isn’t it time we had another ruling, that Israel is committing a genocide in front of the world and in contempt of the history of its own people – and isn’t it time our spineless politicians grew up and acted on it to stop the suffering?

By the way, you’ll have noticed that one politician who condemns the genocide is George Galloway. He commented on the airdrop, above. He’s also seeking election as MP for Rochdale. If you’re a resident of the constituency, please do us all a favour and do your bit to help him get in.

The Rochdale by-election is about Gaza. Is that why the media aren’t covering it?

George Galloway: is he the most popular politician in Rochdale?

Did you know the Rochdale by-election is tomorrow – February 29?

It may have slipped your mind. The mainstream news media seem to have found other things to talk about after Labour’s candidate had his party membership suspended for claiming that Israel allowed the October 7, 2023, Hamas attack to happen in order to have an excuse for genocide in Gaza.

Perhaps coverage has lapsed because the front-runner seems to be the representative of the Workers’ Party, rather than Labour or the Conservatives – because his campaign has focused strongly on support for the people of Gaza, and because this has been popular with the people of the constituency.

Palestinians support George Galloway and, as you can see from the clip below, people in Rochdale do too:

He has made his position clear from day one of his campaign:

And of course he is bolstered by the fact that both Labour and the Conservative Party have supported Israel’s genocide in Gaza, that has murdered and maimed so many children like those in the clip.

Nobody should be voting for a representative of a party that supported the genocide – This Writer agrees with Tom London (below) on that, and I’m sure the people of Rochdale do too.

He certainly seems to have support on the doorstep:

And he has the support of campaigning journalists too:

If you’re in Rochdale, will he have your vote?

MPs give themselves £48k pay rise to defend against a threat that doesn’t exist

Backhander: politicians in Westminster have found another way to bleed public funds into their own hands – a fund to defend against a claimed threat of violence against them… that does not exist.

UK Home Secretary James Cleverly has announced Parliament’s response to claims that MPs are being threatened by “Islamists” or “Muslims” or “pro-Palestine protesters” or whoever the bogeyman is today.

It’s £31 million, to be divided between MPs so they can pay for extra security, which comes to almost £48,000 per MP – although it seems likely to be used to help other politicians too:

Buy Cruel Britannia in print here. Buy the Cruel Britannia ebook here. Or just click on the image!

People have drawn the obvious conclusion:

With no clear evidence against any individual or organisation, we are seeing MPs diverting public money away from public services and the good of the nation and towards themselves – for no reason.

And take careful note of the comment about Diane Abbott – who has received more abuse and threats than every other MP in Parliament combined, but was never offered any publicly-funded protection before now. Is it because she doesn’t kowtow to the rich and powerful?

The conclusion – about the Tory and Labour MPs who made this possible – is painfully clear:

They are lining their own pockets while they can.

Violent COUNCILLORS try to stifle ‘Free Palestine’ calls in Chorley

Remember when these people flooded into London last October to demonstrate against Israel’s genocide in Gaza? If they were violent, they could have turned our capital city into a replica of that ruined Palestinian enclave. But they didn’t because they were peaceful. It is the politicians who denigrate them that are violent.

Violence is always the resort of the ruling class.

In the clip below – taken at a council meeting in Chorley, we can see and hear members of the public calling for action to support the people of Gaza, and Palestine in general. In response, one councillor shouts, “This is Chorley, not Gaza!” and tries to physically throw the (female) main speaker out of the room.

From there, the meeting descends into chaos as those present react to what has happened.

This Writer can only agree with the observation of Another Angry Voice:

The will of the people is that the UK should do everything it can to end the Gaza genocide – but the will of the political class is that our money should be used to ensure it continues to its conclusion.

Those of us who do not accept that are also participants in the conflict, right here in the UK.

WE ARE ALL IN GAZA NOW.
