Israel lobby tries (and fails) to intimidate another UK MP

Israel lobby tries (and fails) to intimidate another UK MP


Refusal to give the long-running crisis in the Holy Land proper emphasis in world history teaching is a denial of the Palestinian holocaust and the nakba, the ‘catastrophe’ of 1947-49 when nearly 750,000 Arabs were dispossessed of their homes, villages, towns and cities and driven into exile by Jewish terrorists and Israeli militia.

British MP Sir Bob Russel,attacked for questioning Israeli treatment of Palestinians
On 8 July British MP 'Battling' Bob Russell was speaking during a House of Commons debate on the national curriculum in schools ….

Sir Bob Russell (Colchester) (Liberal Democrat):

“The Secretary of State referred to more coverage of world history. On the assumption that the 20th century will include the holocaust, will he give me an assurance that the life of Palestinians since 1948 will be given equal attention?”

Michael Gove, Education Secretary [and fervent Friend of Israel]:

“These are delicate waters, into which I fear to tread too definitively. One thing I would say is that there has been near universal welcome and support for the centrality of the holocaust and the unique evil inherent in the holocaust being in the national curriculum. Once one gets on to the position of the state of Israel after 1948, it is probably better if I step back. I have strong views on the matter and I would not wish to impose them on the curriculum.”

Sir Bob’s question was a “shoah slur”, screamed the Jewish Chronicle, and he immediately came under attack as reported here in Jewish New.

Jeremy Newmark, of Britain's Jewish Leadership Council said, “These remarks are a shocking piece of Holocaust denigration. There is simply no comparison between the two situations. It is worrying that so soon after the David Ward affair another MP thinks it is acceptable to play fast and loose with the language of the Holocaust in this context."

Karen Pollock, Chief Executive of the Holocaust Educational Trust, added: “To try to equate the events of the Holocaust – the systematized mass murder of 6 million Jews – with the conflict in the Middle East is simply inaccurate as well as inappropriate.”

“Bob Russell is a fringe, marginal voice in the community. All parties have them sadly”, said Gavin Stollar, chairman of Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel.

Nobody is claiming equivalence in the numbers. But Palestinians, and indeed the wider world community, are entitled to feel there is nonetheless a disturbing comparison.

The word 'holocaust' is centuries old and has several meanings, one being "any mass slaughter or reckless destruction of life".  For those interested in the figures, Israel's B'Tselem shows that between year 2000 and the start of Israel’s ‘Cast Lead’ assault on Gaza in 2008 the Israelis’ vast standing army, equipped with the most advanced American-funded weaponry, killed 4,790 Palestinian civilians in their homeland. Of these, 952 were children. Yes, 952 young Palestinian lives horribly snuffed out and their parents left desolated.

The Palestinian resistance, with their primitive weapons, killed 490 Israeli civilians, including 84 children.  That's a slaughter rate of 11 to 1 by the Israelis – reckless in anyone's language. Since then Israel’s 'destruction of life' score has soared thanks to Operation Cast Lead (an act of infamy which slaughtered 1,400 Gazans, including 320 children and 109 women, horribly maimed thousands more, and is regarded by many as a holocaust in its own right) and the more recent Pillar of Cloud Operation as well as the countless air strikes in-between.

Although the Holocaust Education Trust and Zionists generally would like exclusive use of the H-word for Jewish victims, they must understand that there have been other holocausts besides the 'Big One' of World War 2. If there is such a thing as a Palestinian holocaust it is a slow motion one. The extermination may be on a smaller scale but is nevertheless of towering significance because it has been carried out in the Holy Land – of all places – and against Christians and Muslims.

There are at least three more reasons why it should be included in the British schools curriculum. Britain as the military power and subsequently the mandated power in the Holy Land was instrumental in creating the situation. The slaughter, deprivation and illegal occupation resulting from British duplicity is still going on after 65 years. And the intolerable mess we allowed to develop but took no action to resolve is a matter of deep national shame and a major cause of world unrest.

When researching for the book 'Radio Free Palestine' I asked my local education authority (Cambridgeshire, a leader in the UK) if the Arab-Israeli conflict and its causes were taught in school. The answer was no, unless you picked the Middle East option at A-level, and even then teaching only "scratched the surface". So the book contains this passage:

"The truth about Palestine doesn't sit well with Britain's now crumbling reputation for fair play. Its name has been airbrushed from maps and purged, like a dirty word, from diplomatic lexicons. Even today the subject is only haphazardly taught in our schools. For older generations like mine it was never on the curriculum.”

In contrast, the Nazi holocaust against Jews is a compulsory subject in the history curriculum at all state secondary schools in England and the government has created a UK Envoy for post-Holocaust Issues. In 2008 the government and the Pears Foundation jointly funded a £1.5 million three-year national project to improve teaching and learning about the Holocaust.

Jeremy Newmark, Britain's Jewish Leadership Council

Refusal to give the long-running crisis in the Holy Land proper emphasis in world history teaching is a denial of the Palestinian holocaust and the nakba (the ‘catastrophe’ of 1947-49 when nearly 750,000 Arabs were dispossessed of their homes, villages, towns and cities and driven into exile by Jewish terrorists and Israeli militia. Many died or were massacred in the process. Those who survived have not been allowed to return). Israel’s illegal military occupation is the longest in modern times with no prospect of ending while corrupt politicians rule the international scene.

British children must be given an opportunity to understand that Britain’s complicity in such a cruel state of affairs can never be tolerated again, just as they are already learning that Nazi atrocities at Auschwitz and elsewhere must never happen again. Bob Russell is surely right to call for the curriculum to give equal attention to the causes and effect of the Palestinians' suffering and he should be applauded for seeking a balanced approach in these matters.

The big stink over David Ward

UPDATE: David Ward has been suspended from the Liberal Democrats until September 13 in reaction to his comments about the “apartheid state of Israel.”
Complainer Jeremy Newmark mentions the David Ward (above) affair, referring to another Liberal Democrat MP who earlier made this remark on his website: "Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza."

Chiefs of the Holocaust Educational Trust and the Board of Deputies of British Jews kicked up a huge fuss, loudly complaining that Ward "deliberately abused the memory of the Holocaust" and his remarks were "sickening" and "offensive".

The Liberal Democrat Chief Whip, Alistair Carmichael, agreed that Ward's remarks were "wholly inappropriate" and that singling out 'the Jews' in that way crossed a red line.

For speaking out on the Israeli regime’s crimes Ward was treated like a delinquent and comprehensively humiliated. The Jewish Chronicle reported that party leader Nick Clegg told Ward he must work alongside Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel (LDFoI) “to identify and agree language that will be proportionate and precise” in future debate. He should attend meetings with LDFoI representatives in order to achieve a better understanding of “the legitimate concern” that his comments caused within the wider Jewish community. Disciplinary steps would then be reviewed.

Gavin Stollar said: “LDFoI has essentially been appointed as probation officers for David Ward. If we are not convinced that he is salvageable then we'll be in the position to report back to the leader and the chief whip and express our views. Rather than making him a martyr, LDFoI welcomes the opportunity to educate one of our MPs."

There are no reports to show that Ward complied with any of this arrant nonsense.

Gavin Stollar meets Tzipi Livni after Lib Dems secure changes to Universal Jurisdiction law
And who is this upstart Stollar, who thinks it’s his place to re-educate elected members of the British Parliament? Here he is seen warmly shaking the bloody hand of Tzipi Livni, who is on several wanted lists for war crimes and crimes against humanity. Livni, Israel’s former foreign minister, was largely responsible for the holocaust inflicted on innocent Palestinians, trapped in their tiny enclave with the borders sealed, over Christmas and New Year 2008/9. Her office afterwards issued a statement saying she was proud of her decisions in Operation Cast Lead, the murderous blitz she unleashed.

No-one, least of all ‘Battling’ Bob Russell or David Ward, need lectures or re-education from the likes of Stollar and his fellow stooges.

  1. Required reading: "Other Losses", the book that describes the deliberate murder of 800,000 German POW's at wars end, people dying of thirst within sight of the Rhine river. Responsibility:Eisenhower. Also highly recommended if you still haven't read it: "The First Holocaust".

  2. My youngest daughter was sent home from school when she objected to holocaust lessons at school, she was kept out of history for months because she too objected to why Britains history was being ignored and schools were focusing either on the US or Israeli history. She then went and did a project about the Palestinians and she was awarded an F despite it being well researched, written and presented and she was told contritely she could not do that which led to a weeks suspension.

    • Since the zionists control most white countries, they can get away with an atrocity like this simple as pie

  3. This is an excellent article that highlights the most important problem the world faces namely Israel, and organized Jewry (what is missing here is the Jewish bankers who have destroyed America and several other countries). 


    World Jewry is simply thuggary.  It is intimidation and emotional manipulation of every one in the world. International Jew has proved to be a menace to the society. Winston, the Jew Eisenhower destroyed Germany.  Bolshevik Jews destroyed Russia and murdered over 60 million Russians.  Israeli Jews are murdering people in Gaza and Palestine. 


    Jewish controlled DHS is getting ready to murder Americans. But the only important thing that has happened in the history of the world is "Jewish holocaust".  None of these other horrific things which Jews have inflicted on humanity counts. All this while crying out anti-Semitism!


    Ask Veronica Clark, David Irving, Ernst Zundel, Deanna Spingola about the "Holocaust". It is time to stand against these tyrants and call them out for their endless crimes against humanity. Dr David Duke's latest book on Jewish crime should be sold to everyone in the world.


    Stuart Littlewood's writing is adorable.  His compassion for humanity is well demonstrated in the book he has written and the articles he writes. Thank you for supporting this great human being!    

  4. They are fooling themselves with the numbers….  The truth is that Hitler did not kill even one single Jew. It's all been a stunning hoax like few in history and the time to wake up is long past for all. Material reward to all those that came up with lies about the holocaust is part of the phenomenon of how this complete lie came about. But it's a lot more complicated. It's the Rothschild agenda.

    • The jew parasites have extorted trillions of dollars from the gullible that believe this biggest lie of all time.

  5. Well   One could have been excused for thinking that the US was the centre of subservience to the Jews, Zionists, AIPAC traitors, Neocons spies and the Rothchilds banksters, not excluding of course the totally dysfunctional Congress and  McCain’s  ‘friends of al Qaeda’ Senate, both a disgrace to the people of the US, themselves too apathetic to be even aware of the importance of getting off their seats to show that they do care for their country….and to vote.   But no more.


    Today’s writing by Stu Littlewood on what is becoming a surrender by the politicians of the UK to the Jews and miscellaneous Zionist lobby groups hiding behind various Zionist titles, changes all that. The treatment by the Jews of democratically elected and worthy people like David Ward was a real eye-opener. Now we see this repeated by the same sort of treatment of MP Bob Russell.  


    One is tempted to ask, are these two men English? Are they elected with  their English  values and opinions to represent their electorates, populated by English voters as well?  In England? In 2013? If so, why are people representing a foreign country, a pariah state better said, able to even have the degree of influence that they seem to exert over the likes of Agents Cameron and Hague, the once-admired UKIP, now a pathetic subscribers sayanims to Israel’s evil objectives and now, so it seems, the Liberal Democrat party who intend to counsel transgressors to the way of the Jews. And what are they counselling?


    The thinking according to Netanyahu, Machiavellian leader of the ‘chosen people’. Their fantasyland words, not mine. Look at all you have achieved over the years, England. You fought the aggressor Hitler only to allow an insidious group headquartered in Israel and masquerading as ‘British citizens’ to control your minds and your allegiances Now you conform to the dictates of an evil occupying power, far worse than Hitler from whom you have learnt all your skills who use you and your weak elected people to do their bidding, but not one of their objectives has the interests of the UK in mind. Not one.  


    You think that the acceptance of Islamic groups into your country is causing divisions between British traditionalists with English values for which you have fought and died for centuries. No, that is a manageable condition. The real danger in your midst is the Zionists, masquerading as loyal citizens but able and willing to bribe, corrupt, threaten the lifestyle you have apathetically taken for granted. This has allowed six times more Jews than could be reasonable expected based on population levels, to bribe their way into your Parliament, all parties,  like any cancerous growth, any vehicle will do to progress their objectives.  


    You have made it so easy for them and they are  gloating. Just seeing the details in this article must make them realise that they are wining the battle for control of the world, because that’s is their objective.   Believe it.

  6. The Zundel trials, in the 80's and early 90's, proved in a court of law that the Holocaust narrative is little more than war-time propaganda that is still imposed on billions of people today. Read "The Great Holocaust Trial".
    The US and Britain are still trying to cover up the fact that the "Allies" stood idly by while a real holocaust took place during and well after the Bolshevik revolution. God forbid anyone ever find out that the predominately Jewish leadership of the Bolsheviks and Soviet Union (a member of the "Allies") participated in the murders of millions of innocent people.

  7. Hammer the Lie! Hammer the Hoax! Keep hammering schoolchildren with the PHONY Jew "Holocaust!" Martin Luther's "The Jews and Their Lies" still applies.


    They've been at it for centuries. Zionist pukes were pushing the Six Million Lie even during WW1. It gathered no traction. But after WW2, it did, with every lying, stinking Allied presstitute going along with the lies of the victors in war!


    As Germany lay prostrate and bombed out. Russell and Ward unfortunately publicly accept that Hoax, while rightfully pointing out Jew murderers in Gaza, Palestine, Lebanon, West Bank, Syria, everywhere they can get the foolish Americans to do their evil against their neighbors, as in Iraq and Afghanistan, etc.


    When are people going to do some serious research into The Hoax? People are lazy and gullible. If the sacred Jooos say it, it must be true is the attitude. E.g. Auschwitz was a synthetic rubber factory system with many amenities for the inmates. I hope YOU do not believe this biggest of JEW LIES! This new Jew religion. Jews who push the Hoax are the Synagogue of Satan. What about the REAL holocaust of JEWS mass murdering up to 60 million Russians, Ukrainians et al after 1917? Not a peep about that! Hoax-pushers are the most deranged, paranoid, sinister people on the planet! for starters.

  8. The zionist/khazar/marrano/Israeli contingent in both houses of parliament, is, by far, the most over – represented group, (as many as 68%) this also applies to the law lords & the upper reaches of the legal profession, yet they are roughly 2.8% of the British population.


    Why don't they take their skills & apply them where needed, in the occupied territories? This would then leave the british people with a parliament more representative of the british people, having no allegiance to foreign powers. It would probably benefit the british people to vote out any M.P. (or charge them with treason!) who puts the interests of foreign powers before the interests of the electorate. Just my 2 bits is all.
