The last time we wrote about the odious UK Labour MP, Gerald Kaufman, he was spewing anti-Israel bile in the UK Houses of Parliament.
From David Collier’s blog comes this:
It is 27/10/2015 and I am at 1 Parliament St for a ’roundtable event’ organised by the Palestine Return Council and hosted by Gerald Kaufman.
(This is as accurate as possible in the circumstances *please note there may be some minor errors* a written version of the full speech is here.)
“The majority of the “attempted stabbing” incidents are based on false claims. They are executing Palestinians on the streets and then they fabricate the stabbing story. Several videos came out after some of these incidents that clearly show those Palestinians killed posing no harm at all but they got shot anyway and some were executed after they were injured on the ground. It is enough for an Israeli to scream terrorist and if you look like an Arab you will be shot dead on the spot. I wanted to say they shoot and then ask questions, but the truth is they shoot and then they fabricate a stabbing story. No questions asked. More than half the stabbing claims were definitely fabricated. The other half, some were true, the others there was no way to tell since they executed Palestinians and no one asked questions. Not only that, they got the point of executing Arab looking people and in the past few days they killed 2 Jewish Israelis and an Eritrean just because they looked Arab. They fabricated a stabbing story to justify the killings before they found out they were not Palestinians. ”
Right there we have Abbas level lying and incitement: these words directly lead to Palestinians taking up knives to show us what Jihad really means. And results in dead or wounded Jews and, even more dead and wounded terrorists. Great work Gerald, keep it up.
David fills in with some more explanations but this is the next part of what Kaufman said (my emphasis).
His talk immediately turned to focus on why the Conservative government is so pro-Israeli.
“Martin wonders why this governments policy has gone farther and farther and more and more pro-Israeli, but I’ll tell you because I can tell you in a way which perhaps nobody else in this room can tell you. It’s Jewish money, Jewish donations, to the conservative party as in the general election in May, support from the Jewish Chronicle, all of those things, bias the conservatives. There is now a big group of conservative members of Parliament, who are pro-Israel whatever government does and they are not interested in what Israel, in what the Israeli government does. They’re not interested in the fact that Palestinians are living a repressed life, and are liable to be shot at any time.”
Having delivered those sickening comments, Kaufman made a few more comments about the Israelis not ‘understanding morality’, that it isn’t just the fault of the Israeli government but the Israeli people too and swiftly left the building, others got up to speak and soon the Q&A started. It is always when the Q&A session arrives, you get to feel the genetic make-up of the room. Someone made the point that British citizens serving in the IDF should be treated by the government as if they are Jihadi John and one suggested that the Gaza conflict was one of the worst conflicts that has ever been. I heard that there are twinning campaigns between British and Palestinian towns, that the Conservative MP for Bath is ‘being turned’ and may well create a Conservative Friends of Palestine and that we are soon going to be able to buy a British/Palestinian jointly brewed beer called ‘Peace’ at the local pub. And then there was this:
A man describing his motivations, had worked briefly in Israel for Israeli Aircraft Industries and clearly didn’t like it. So much so it was the ‘turning point of his life’ and he has hated Israel ever since. And he wanted to know why no-one was willing to deal with the ‘elephant in the room’
“…which is I think one of the most important questions that you can ask, and that is, “how does Israel get away with it”. And this is a really important question, and I have never really heard an adequate answer to that. Because it seems to me that the answer is always the elephant in the room……. it has flouted 65+ resolutions and nothing has ever been done about it and I come back to the question, and I have never heard an honest answer about it. The most honest answer I have heard so far was when Gerald himself broached on was ‘Jewish Money’. Now it is not just a question of who gives the most donations, what I suggest is people here do serious research and find out how for instance the federal reserve in America came into existence. It came into existence in February 1913 and there was a secret meeting that took place by two (ten?) bankers a couple of years before that and if was sneaked through, so when we talk about money it is important we know who controls the money. That’s where the money is important.”
If there was video of this, it would be priceless. This man really is filled with hate and malice toward Israel and the Jews. David Collier’s full blog post has quite a bit more explanation and comment, it’s well worth reading.
It’s also about time that the UK’s Labour party threw this odious man out. Except that I’m pretty sure the equal odious Jeremy Corbyn thinks exactly as he does.
