Israels war is our war

Opinion Update:

"Not that we should be surprised. The BBC’s coverage has been overwhelmingly one-sided, with presenters and reporters editorialising against what they universally refer to as “Israeli attacks on Lebanon".....On Saturday the BBC’s website helpfully carried full details of the assembly points for that day’s anti-Israel march. Nowhere did it give the same detail for yesterday’s rally in support of Israel. We are forced to pay for such propaganda. The only option is to take action ourselves. BBC News’s annual budget is £350 million — 8.75 per cent of the corporation’s entire budget. From now on, let’s pay only £120 of the £131.50 licence fee"

Quite. c/o The Times And another reason for this post to stay up all bloody week.


Hizbollahs "sophisticated and slick" media operations c/o CNN

7,000 attend a pro Israel rally yesterday North London....

"... how many demos or rallies can you think of that include the singing of "God Save the Queen" (with the words helpfully projected up on the plasma megascreen)?

So, yes, it was very much the face of the official Jewish community, passionately eager to demonstrate that loyalty to Britain comes before the singing of the Israeli national anthem, Hatikva, which followed it"

Terrific that the turnout equalled if not surpassed Saturdays anti Israeli rally - here's George Galloway at the anti Israeli rally central London on Saturday (click for pics), where the usual suspects rocked up with charming signs recalling the Warsaw ghettos, pro-Hizballah, demonising Israel..:

What I’m about to say is illegal in this country ...Hezbollah has never been a terrorist organisation. I am here to glorify the Lebanese resistance, Hezbollah, and to glorify the resistance leader, Hassan Nasrallah ..I'll see you in court, Mr Blair.

Hope so you sad little Scottish traitor.

Cox and Forkum comment on the anti Israeli demos in the US where they waved placards that called on Allah to destroy the terrorist state of Israel ( in the US?! 'A sign of the times indeed')

More opinion keeping me sane:

The bloody truth is that Israel's war is our war (Sunday Times commentary)

"None of that means their (Bush and Blairs) policy is wrong. To explain why they might be right is an uphill struggle because many more innocents are dying in Lebanon than in Israel, making it easy to accuse the Jewish state of disproportionate violence. The proper question has to go beyond “how many civilians are dying today?” to “can Israel’s actions contribute to eventual peace?”

Critics of Israel point out that bombing Lebanon provides fresh grievances for Palestinians and other Muslims. That is undoubtedly so, and it is exactly what Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran would wish. Israel is forced to choose between looking feeble (which will increase its vulnerability) or playing into its enemies’ hands through “disproportionate” action. Before we criticise Israel we should at least understand that dilemma and be aware that if we stoke up anti-Israeli feeling we dance to a devilish tune"

Do you think Britain would piss about if the IRA had fired 3,000 rockets into the British mainland in the past few months?

This was featured in the Evening Standard today, surprisingly enough.

Generally the coverage for this was VERY understated in the MSM. Very hard to find on the BBC website, even though they both had similar attendance levels.

The rally? Thats cool. The Evening Standards 'Human Shields' front cover really hit home hard last week.

Here's a video of Galloway and terror supporters shouting for Hizbollah ... in London.

I'm glad I saw this post. I'd been loking for news of the rally online but the only thing I could find was a BBC report that said it was a very poor turnout, and also said something to the effect of it getting nothing like the support seen in Saturdays rally.
I figured the BBC version was probably a little wide of the mark, as usual.

The IRA murdered 3000 people and the UK Government seeks to put them in Government here Alison. Alas, the INSTINCTS of the UK Foreign Office, and most politicians, is to APPEASE. It's a topic I hope to cover in detail in a forthcoming book, as I think the lesson that you CANNOT appease terrorism is one that the British Government historically never learns.

That said - great Pics. We should ALL stand by Israel - 100%.

It was also the position of the US government under Clinton and remained so til 9/11. I hold Clinton as much responsible for what happened with the IRA as I do Blair.

Who is it that continues to welcome Gerry Adams and Martin McGuinnes like heros after the murder of the 3000 you quote?

The granting of the visa to Gerry Adams had an important impact with the IRA. It gave the IRA a certain degree of self confidence. That if Sinn Fein did go into negotiation, it was going into negotiation with the goodwill of the US.

Clinton legitimised terrorists David.

The role of the Clinton administration was central to the whole appeasement process.

After that terrorism seemed a rather glamorous way of going about getting what you want and appealed to a wider fan base.

I'm getting rather bored with this idea that terror appeasement is uniquely 'European'.

Not at all. Britain has never had an "instinct to appease". The foreign office is cosying up to islamic extremists - only because it sees them as the future leaders of places like pakistan, this is not appeasement at all. It's fucking stupid, yes, but not appeasement.

Ever heard of Neville Chamberlain?


Clinton was indeed instrumental in the legtimisation of the IRA - but Blair is up to his NECK in it as well. I think terror appeasement is not European, it's at the heart of global leftism. They just wanna give peace a chance - whereas I just see terrorists killed.

Alison, An interesting take on appeasement being global. One must remember that Arafat was the #1 visitor in the Clinton White House, so we Americans shouldn't get too smug!

Indeed Chas. The Whitehouse also hosted Gerry Adams, the political leader of the IRA. Tony Blair didn't speak to Clinton for quite some time after that.

The British public fucked him off when they realised what a liability he was, though, thankgod.

Exactly. Something many Conservative Americans are too arrogant to admit.

Good we can agree. Appeasement is always wrong - throwing steaks to a crocodile does not make it turn into a vegetarian.

Jonz, you raise an interesting point about the Foreign Office here.

Our government deals with Islamists as if it were still running an empire - i.e. trying to keep powerful chiefs on-side.

Problem is, the 'chiefs' don't want to play ball any more and their followers are now in the UK, not just on the NW frontier.

The number of terrorists who are created by fighting the War on Terror is insignificant compared to the number spawned by the Saudi financed Madrasa schools all over the world. Until the Saudi's are confronted over exporting their anti-Israel and anti-West philosophy there will be plenty of new terror recruits regardless.

"The IRA murdered 3000 people"

This is not true and you know it.
