Condoning Israeli genocide of Palestinians

There is something particularly pernicious about the latest Israeli massacres in Gaza. The indiscriminate slaughter of Palestinian men, women, children and babies is as inhumane as in the two previous mass killings and atrocities. Only this time it was carried out under a renewed vigour and defiance of all international norms and a barrage of propaganda that much of the media has seemed keen to lap up to try to justify the unjustifiable, the blatant immorality of the intransigent aggressor devouring the victims as mere fodder.

It would appear to be no coincidence that the latest wave of financial sanctions targeted against Muslim charities coincides with Israel’s renewed killings of Palestinians in Gaza. Several Islamic organisations in Britain have suddenly found that their bank accounts have been closed without any explanation by HSBC including Ummah Welfare Trust, Finsbury Park Mosque and The Cordoba Foundation.

WWI Centenary commemoration was ‘avalanche of pro-war propaganda’

Commemorating the centenary of the start of the First World War was, of course, necessary. Four years of conflict, the like of which had never been seen before, resulted in 37 million dead.
