Hamas’s Brass Neck.

with one comment

The story concerning the potential arrest of Tzipi Livni is unravelling. Unable to keep quiet Hamas brag of their involvement.

Diya al-Madhun, head of a Hamas committee, boasted:

“We provide documents, reports and evidence of crimes to all international bodies aiding the Palestinian people in bringing Israeli civilian and military leaders to trial and issuing warrants for their arrest,”

“We have provided a group of independent lawyers in Britain with documents, information and evidence concerning war crimes committed by Israeli political and military leaders, including (Tzipi) Livni.”

Now we should not imply that the British lawyers are colluding with Hamas, but it is a bit rich of Hamas to complain about human rights, lest we forget:

There’s that and a lot more. I would hope that the British lawyers would know about Hamas, but in case they don’t here’s a clip from the Hamas covenant:

”With their money they [Jews] stirred revolutions in various parts of the world with the purpose of achieving their interests and reaping the fruit therein. They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there. With their money they formed secret societies, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world for the purpose of sabotaging societies and achieving Zionist interests. With their money they were able to control imperialistic countries and instigate them to colonize many countries in order to enable them to exploit their resources and spread corruption there.”

Or

”The Zionist plan is limitless. After Palestine, the Zionists aspire to expand from the Nile to the Euphrates. When they will have digested the region they overtook, they will aspire to further expansion, and so on. Their plan is embodied in the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion”, and their present conduct is the best proof of what we are saying.”

Yes, that’s right. Hamas believe that Jews are behind the French and Russian Revolutions.

Not only that, but Hamas are convinced that Jews started the First World War to break up the Ottoman Empire, and instigated WW2 to make money. Also, that Jews control the media and world finance. All basically antisemitic filth, that any neo-Nazi would feel happy with, that’s what Hamas believe.

I just wonder how these British lawyers reconciled themselves assisting to a genocidal antisemitic organisation, Hamas?

PS: Lest we are told that Hamas have changed and don’t really hate Jews, perhaps those British lawyers would like to explain away the Holocaust revisionism recently pushed by a Hamas leader?

One of the side benefits to blogging is seeing someone take an idea or thought and doing it real justice, expressing it in a fashion that it deserves, with lucidity and a certain pointed edge, so I was very pleased to read IsraeliNurse’s recent post at CiF Watch pointing out the weaknesses in a Guardian editorial on arrest warrants and international law.

As an aside, I wonder how many Guardian editorials have been written criticising only Israelis, compared to the other 190+ nationalities in the world?

Arresting Politicians – British Hypocrisy.

with 5 comments

The media is full of stories concerning Tzipi Livni and a potential arrest warrant issued against her in the British courts.

That is, I think, a little bit unusual?

I can’t remember of any other nationality, or nation, being subject to these ad hoc arrest warrants, from British courts.

Even when General Pinochet, the murdering ex-dictator of Chile, was in Britain, he was only held under house arrest on a Spanish warrant, not a British one.

Further if we think of the variety and intensity of dictators, potentates and other assorted politicians who have graced Britain with their presence in the past 30 years it is hard to remember which of them were subject to warrants issued by British courts, or even the threat of arrest.

Was Vladimir Putin indicted for Russian barbarism in Chechnya ? Certainly not.

Was Robert Mugabe chastised for brutalising, starving and murdering Zimbabweans? No, not really.

Were King Fahd or his successor, King Abdullah II ever prosecuted for having the worst human rights record in the Middle East? Not at all.

You could go through the list of state visits from 1955 onwards and find any number of rogues, villains and the culpable, but what is surprising is that no one in Britain has seen fit to even **attempt** to acquire a warrant or two in the British courts, except when it comes to Israelis.

Moreover there are people in Britain who consider that Tony Blair is a war criminal for his advocacy of the invasion of Iraq and the subsequent bloodshed which ensued.

But as far as I know, not one single Brit has taken the trouble to apply for warrant arresting Tony Blair, even though some of them consider him a war criminal, which seems to suggest that their indignation is rather selective.

I can only suppose that if Tony Blair were an Israeli that there would be a stampede to the Law Courts, pleading for an arrest warrant at great haste.

Yet none of the political windbags that attack Blair would even dare to venture near the Law Courts where he is concerned, or they would have long since done it.

My bet is none of this top twenty worst human rights offenders have anything to fear in visiting Britain, Amnesty reports:

Congo, Rwanda, Burundi, Algeria, Sierra Leone, Egypt, North Korea, Sudan, Indonesia, Yugoslavia, Pakistan, China, Libya, Burma, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Yemen, Chad and Congo (Republic).

However, should their leaders decide to visit Britain then, no matter how much blood is dripping from their fingers, they will probably receive a warm welcome in Blighty, and be patted on the back in true imperial fashion.

As long as they are not Israelis.

Countries may come and go, but there is one constant in history, good old British hypocrisy.
