Labour foiled as SNP supports ceasefire amendment to maximise chance of success

Outflanked: too bad, Tel Aviv Keith!

Keir Starmer’s apparent bid to spoil the SNP’s motion for the UK to demand a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas in Gaza has been foiled after Scottish MPs supported his amendment.

The Labour amendment adds in a significant amount of wording that seems intended to give Israel reasons to ignore the call for peace.

It should not have been called during an Opposition Day debate (as the SNP is also a party that opposes the Tory government) – but Commons Speaker Lyndsay Hoyle broke with Parliamentary convention to do so.

It seems he had been told by Starmer that Labour would not support his re-election as Speaker after the general election if he did not. That’s blackmailisn’t it?

Many will see this as further proof that Starmer is a puppet of the Israeli government and more invested in pursuing its interests than in working for the good of people here in the UK.

But all of that became academic when the SNP’s Westminster leader, Stephen Flynn, said he would support Labour’s amendment. He said it follows “months of public and SNP pressure”.

His statement said: “While the Labour Party amendment is deficient in a number of ways, we will nonetheless vote for it to maximise the chance of the UK parliament supporting an immediate ceasefire.

“Should it fall, we urge all MPs to back the SNP motion in kind.”

Never mind the spin – here’s #TelAvivKeith

#TelAvivKeith: Keir Starmer’s slavish support for Israel has earned him a new derogatory nickname. But if the cap fits…?

It’s the perfect put-down for a Labour leader who sold out to a foreign power before winning any power for himself.

Keir Starmer’s unquestioning support for Israel has been just a little too conspicuous since October 7 last year – and today (February 17, 2024), somebody found the perfect way to sum it up:

He can try to pretend he’s been taking legal advice into consideration but everybody has already concluded that the only advice he’s accepting is coming from Tel Aviv.

The nickname caught on quickly:

And then it started trending:

It’s because right-thinking people think it’s accurate, of course:

Even now, when he has changed his tune in response to public demand, #TelAvivKeith can’t avoid the public spotlight that highlights all his little evasions and caveats:

This Writer has said it before and will undoubtedly do so again: Do you really want this man running your country when he is so clearly influenced by another one?

Condolences for Palestine’s ambassador amid fears that Israel is preparing worse atrocities

This Writer had no idea, when preparing my earlier article about the death of Sidra Hassouna, that she was one of the relatives mentioned by Palestine’s ambassador to the UK, Husam Zomlot, in the video clip of him that I used.

Here is his message confirming what happened:

And here is the video clip. In it, he states, “Israel has massacred from 60 to 100 – we don’t know the exact number because, still, people are under rubble including the family of my own – of my wife: her aunt, the husband, all the children, all the grandchildren are gone.”

Now we know they are gone forever – victims of the so-called Superbowl Massacre, in which Israel bombed a refugee camp in Rafah to provide fake cover for a fake rescue operation, to be able to say two hostages had been rescued (who had in fact been rescued days before).

This Site can only offer deepest sympathies to Mr Zomlot. Nobody should ever have to see the children of their family in the way he has been forced to see them, due to Israel’s brutal genocide – an atrocity that is made worse by the clear delight that the Israeli military forces take in killing civilian children, women and men (see my previous article).

I think of the children in my own family, and the younger friends I have, and I consider how I would feel if such savagery was inflicted on them. To understand the horror of what is happening in Rafah, you should do the same. And remember: there is no need for this to happen. There were always better ways of responding to the October 7, 2023 attack on Israel.

No: Israeli forces are murdering children and dismembering their bodies because they want to.

What else should we expect when their political leaders are encouraging them?

Such killings of female and child non-combatants are now routine, with white flags ignored by the IDF, as this Sky News report makes clear. Note also how the IDF refuses to comment on its atrocities when confronted with the facts:

Others have also offered condolences to Mr Zomlot – both public figures and members of the public:

Yes. Isn’t it strange that the UK’s prime minister, Rishi Sunak, has had nothing to say about this?

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

In fairness, Foreign Secretary David Cameron has pointed out that, as the occupying power that controls everything going into and out of Gaza, Israel has a duty to civilians there:

But neither Cameron nor anybody else in the UK government is lifting a finger to stop the slaughter – instead we provide funds and weapons to Israel, and as such the UK is aiding and abetting genocide.

The public is speaking, though: there is a petition calling on the government to revoke all arms export licences to Israel. Please sign. This Writer has no doubt that the government will ignore it (money talks) but it may demonstrate the strength of public feeling if it gains a significant number of signatures:

It seems more – and worse – is on the way. With 1.5 million people now trapped in Rafah and Israeli forces closing in for a ground assault – on civilian children, women and men, remember – they have no way out.

Attacks on Rafah are already taking place, as we have seen, and the Israeli forces are also taking time to murder civilians who remain in other parts of Gaza. If anybody – especially our UK politicians – remains under any illusion that the IDF is under orders to protect civilians, you should unburden yourself of that illusion now.

For example: remember Nasser Hospital, which is a protected site under the Geneva Convention; it is a war crime to attack anybody there?

I already reported on the way a child was shot in front of the hospital, by snipers who then targeted anybody who tried to reach him.

It seems the IDF then sent a handcuffed Palestinian prisoner into the hospital to order everybody there to evacuate – and then they murdered him when he returned:

Meanwhile – apparently for fun – Israel bombed the hospital:

And now – faced with no choice – patients and civilians have left the hospital, under the waiting guns of the Israeli butchers. I fear that Mark Seddon’s words, below, may be prophetic:

The IDF’s actions have been condemned by Medicins sans Frontieres, who wrote:

Since the war in Gaza began, our medical teams and patients have been forced to evacuate nine different health care facilities in the Gaza Strip, after coming under fire from tanks, artillery, fighter jets, snipers and ground troops, or being subject to an evacuation order. Medical staff and patients have been arrested, abused and killed. Provision of healthcare and scaling up lifesaving assistance is being made impossible by the intensity of Israel’s bombings and shelling, as well as intense fighting.

Warring parties must always respect and allow unhindered access to medical facilities and their surroundings and protect medical staff and patients.

MSF reiterates its call for an immediate ceasefire that will spare the lives of civilians, allow adequate and vital access to food and other basic commodities, and re-establish the healthcare system on which the survival of the people of Gaza depends.

After This Site showed video of Israelis partying in the street in order to prevent aid from getting to Gaza, it seems others are moving to prevent it from entering by other routes:

Here in the UK, those of us who are of good conscience are still trying to make our own will clear, and push our leaders into doing the right thing.

So we boycott Israeli goods in our shops:

If you’ve got a mobile phone (who hasn’t, these days?) but don’t yet have the No Thanks app that tells you whether an item was produced by Israel and should be boycotted, get it from the Google Play store or other appropriate app store now.

And the Scottish National Party is forcing another ceasefire vote in Parliament, likely to happen as an Opposition Day motion next Wednesday (February 21).

Here’s Stephen Flynn, leader of the SNP in the House of Commons:

“History will judge all of us by our actions,” he says in the clip.

This Site’s actions are clear to all. Will you take action too?

Public opinion turns further against Israel after Rafah slaughter. So what?

Now we have a name for the little girl whose body, hanging from a window with its legs shredded and absent below the knee, has become synonymous with Israel’s so-called Superbowl Massacre:

Here’s video of Sidra while she was still among the living:

This was Sidra on February 12, and I make no apology for the graphic nature of what follows; Israel should apologise:

We’re told that the Superbowl Massacre was set up under the pretence that it was cover for a raid on Hamas to rescue two Israeli hostages; Israel ran an advert during the Superbowl with the tagline “Bring back our dads”, and then magically produced two such “dads”.

But it has been claimed that these “dads” had actually been rescued on February 2, and there was no raid to rescue anybody; this was simply an excuse for the massacre.

You can see the wider-scale impact of it in the post below:

This is not the limit of the “pure evil” that Israel has been visiting on the people of Palestine, though. Here are a few more examples:

 

Alongside the murders – looting:

And lies. Israel is apparently claiming that it is helping send aid into Gaza, but the clip being used as evidence of this is from two years ago:

In fact, it seems Israelis are blocking aid from entering Gaza:

Looking at the evidence, some of us have been working backwards to find out what Israel has actually been doing. Here’s what they found:

It’s certainly true that the United States, courtesy of President ‘Genocide Joe’ Biden, has sent huge amounts of money to Israel. enabling that country to buy more weapons and ammunition to use on Palestinians:

And the US government has been roundly criticised for it.

But this is not solely a war on Gaza:

Yes it is ethnic cleansing. Yes it is genocide. Yes it is a holocaust.

And, being perpetrated by Jewish people from Israel, it means that the leaders of that country have learned nothing at all from the Holocaust inflicted on them by Nazi Germany under Adolf Hitler.

It is, therefore, understandable for people to have become more than a little upset at this turn of events:

Yes that is correct – the UK’s government wholeheartedly supports what happened to Sidra Hassouna. On your behalf, it is saying that you wanted her to be blown to pieces by what’s most likely to have been an American bomb, triggered by an Israeli grunt. The UK and the US are drenched in the blood of Gazan children:

Also covered in blood are the Labour MPs who supported this. One of them, Rachel Reeves, was confronted by a member of the public – and ignored her:

Backtracking a little, remember the claim that Israel had persuaded the UK and the US to de-fund the only organisation capable of preventing a famine in Gaza – refugee care organisation UNRWA – with lies?

Here’s Israel’s liar-in-chief, Eylon Levy, failing to provide any evidence that UNRWA workers were involved in the October 7, 2023, attack on Israel:

And this satirical post highlights the differences between what journalists have been told and what they know to be factually accurate:

You may be asking, what’s the situation now?

Here are a few reports:

Palestine’s ambassador to the UK, Husam Zomlot, has been consistently excellent in putting forward the case for his people to receive help from the UK, rather than hostility:

But perhaps if your heart is too hard for you to listen to these adults, it will soften at the words of these Palestinian youngsters:

They want help, so they will be able to go home again. This may be difficult if their homes are now rubble. And the UK’s government remains hell-bent on supporting Israel.

But the tide of public opinion has turned further against our government – not just here in the UK but across the world, wherever Israel is receiving indiscriminate support for its genocide.

Ordinary people are refusing to accept it – here in the UK:

In the Netherlands:

In Japan:

And, yes, in the United States:

So far, our pleas for our governments to stop fuelling genocide have fallen on deaf ears.

It seems they will not heed the plight of children like Sidra Hassouna, and will instead continue funding Israel so Benjamin Netanyahu can continue buying the bombs and bullets that blew her apart.

But with public opposition growing, the tide will turn. How long will it be before we have a government that demands justice for Sidra; justice for Gaza?

Muslim support for Labour plunges over stance on Gaza war: Poll | Middle East Eye

Flag-shagger: he’s so busy being ‘patriotic’ (whatever that means to him) that Israel-loving Labour leader Keir Starmer seems not to have realised he is haemorrhaging support.

Oh dear. What a shame:

A new poll suggests that Labour is losing significant support among British Muslims as Keir Starmer prepares for an expected general election later this year amid criticism over the party’s handling of the Gaza war.

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

Data collected by Survation, commissioned by the Labour Muslim Network (LMN), showed that 60 percent of British Muslims who expressed a preference for a party said they would vote Labour. The poll was based on telephone interviews with a sample group of 682 people.

Survation said this represented a 26 percent drop in support since the last election in 2019 when 86 percent of Muslims previously polled by the company said they had voted Labour.

A spokesperson for LMN said the poll showed that the Labour Party risks losing a “generation” of potential new voters if its leadership does not change its position over the situation in Gaza.

This Writer wonders what Keir Starmer is planning to do to save all the seats he’ll otherwise lose with the Muslim vote.

My prediction: nothing.

If this Hollywood star is being blacklisted over Israel/Gaza, who else is?

Locked out: it seems the pro-Israel lobby has decided it can tell us who we want to watch on TV and in films, based on whether they support Israel’s genocide or not. Melissa Barrera spoke out in favour of letting the people of Gaza live – so she has been blacklisted, it seems.

This Site has already discussed the targeting of Melissa Barrera after she was reportedly fired from the Scream film franchise for making pro-Palestine comments.

Now it seems she has been blacklisted – her agents have dropped her and she is being verbally attacked for posting a link for donations to UNRWA, the aid organisation for Palestinians that lost funding from the UK and other countries, just because Israel made unfounded claims that it was harbouring terrorists:

If Labour members are turning from Starmer over Gaza, what will VOTERS do?

Voting booth: would either of these people vote for Labour or, indeed, the Tories, knowing that both these parties support the mass murder of innocent people – people like them, perhaps?

This man makes a very strong point in a very strong way.

Keir Starmer and his cronies may be calling for a ceasefire when they face the public, but whenever they have had a chance to make a real difference, they have always toed the pro-Israel, pro-genocide line.

The lives of innocent people in Gaza have nothing to do with it, of course. Starmer is in lock-step with Rishi Sunak, who is in lock-step with Joe Biden – and they are all in cahoots with the military/industrial complex that is making a fortune from Israel’s genocide.

If I were a member of the Labour Party before this happened, I would not be a member of it now. Nor would I return until the party had been cleared – root and branch, as Starmer liked to say when he was running his fake campaign against anti-Semitism – of anybody who supported this new holocaust in any way.

And if I were the kind of voter who supported the Labour Party before this happened, I would certainly not vote for it again until Starmer and all his bloodthirsty cronies were long gone from any role in politics – of any kind.

Lineker triggers Israel lobbyists again with call for football team to be excluded

Gary Lineker: has he got news for you!

Gary Lineker has done it again.

It seems the footballer-turned-pundit has been upsetting the Israel lobby once more, and this time they can’t even complain that he’s out of his depth because he was discussing football.

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

Here’s the gist:

And here are the details:

Gary Lineker has been condemned by MPs and Jewish leaders after retweeting a call for Israel to be banned from international football.

The Match of the Day presenter reposted a statement on X, formerly Twitter, from a pro-Palestinian campaign calling for Israel to be ousted from all global tournaments and games “until it ends its grave violations of international law”.

Tory MPs have now demanded that the BBC intervenes to sanction its highest-paid presenter, as they said they were waiting for “international diplomat and foreign policy expert, Gary Lineker” to condemn Hamas’ atrocities.

The tweet he reposted on Saturday was from the Palestinian Campaign for the Academic & Cultural Boycott of Israel.

It included a statement from the Palestinian Football Association which called upon Fifa and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to join all regional and global sporting bodies in sanctioning Israel.

The BBC declined to comment. A source said: “We aren’t going to give a commentary on individuals or individual tweets.”

He’s absolutely right, of course.

If we oppose the genocide being committed by Israel’s government and military, then we should make the Israeli people aware that what’s happening is unacceptable.

Part of that is achieved by refusing to buy Israeli goods and by shunning businesses that invest in Israel.

And part must be in denying Israelis the chance to take part in cultural activities such as sporting tournaments.
