This is good news. Congratulations to the Labour legal team. And who else figures in all this? Go on, hazard a wild guess. 1/4…
A "crowd fund" backed the miscreants. This update appeared earlier this year. The "Left Legal Fighting Fund" was originally set up to support Chris Williamson. 2/4
Its sole shareholder and director is none other than David Miller. 3/4…
Sameh Habeeb is an excellent losing cause for Miller and Williamson. He is a top flight antisemite. 4/4

A proper Israel hatred rally will feature dirty lies.

Step forward Claudia Webbe MP in Leicester on 30 May. She accuses Israel of nothing less than "genocide" and "elimination". 1/6
Nasty "direct action" needs a push too.

Oh yes, Webbe is "proud" of "direct action" against the defence firm Elbit in Leicester. "Solidarity!" 2/6
She is "proud" of conspiracy to commit criminal damage, aggravated trespass, and violent disorder. "Palestine Action" are nothing but a band of racist vandals. 3/6…

At an Israel hatred rally in Preston on 22 May, the Labour council leader Matthew Brown was very keen to show his support.

Note the ugly and divisive framing: “an attack on all of us, an attack on humanity”. He followed up with “solidarity from the Preston Labour party!”
A statement of support was also read out to the rally from the local Labour MP Mark Hendick. “Make no mistake, I stand with you on the issue of Palestine.”

So, solidarity with what, exactly?
“Victory to the intifada!” over ”the few” from the swuppie and former Preston councillor Michael Lavalette.

Labour might as well trash what's left of its reputation on Prevent, the counter-extremist policy programme designed to keep us all safe.

Teaming up with the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) is a very good way to do that.

Zara Mohammed's story shows why. 1/15 Image
Prevent is complex by nature. Practitioners have time for constructive criticism.

The problem is that some criticism is ridiculous. Saying Prevent is an "abuse of Muslims", for example. This is just what Mohammed did in her campaign to become Secretary General of the MCB. 2/15
Indeed, Mohammed and the MCB line up with some of the most dubious opponents of Prevent.

Here she is speaking alongside the Islamist pressure group MEND, the terrorist support group Cage, the far-left NEU leader Kevin Courtney, the extremist imam Suleiman Ghani,... 3/15 Image

It is sad, if not surprising, to see an avowed anti-racist group team up with Afzal Khan MP, especially on the topic of extremism.

Khan's Manchester has been disgraced by awful hatred rallies for weeks on end now. And what has he done? Join in. 1/7 Image
And note that he is "proud".

Even when this rally he attended featured blood and "from the river to the sea" chants, comparisons of Israel to "the virus", an invocation of Khomeini, a call for "solidarity with the resistance” (i.e. Hamas), and more. 2/7
While it appears he has nothing to say about the depredations.

And what horrors they are.

Crazed fury in Manchester. "With our soul, with our blood, we will redeem you, al-Aqsa!” "Allahu akbar!" 3/7

Assassination - assassination! - must be a red line for all politicians. No one in decent politics should have anything to do with the chancer Mohammed Shafiq.

Yet the Bradford Labour MPs Imran Hussain and Naz Shah spoke at an anti-Israel rally he led in Bradford on 30 May. 1/11
Shafiq likes to tour hate preachers around the country. Here is one of his favourites from Pakistan.

This is dire. Ur-Rehman supported Mumtaz Qadri, the religious fanatic who assassinated the Pakistani politician Salman Taseer in 2011 for "blasphemy". No "love" for him. 2/11
You don't need to speak Urdu to sense Ur-Rehman's sickening fervour in this tirade for Qadri, with a big picture of the assassin hanging on the wall behind him. 3/11

As a Labour councillor, what do you do if the crowd starts chanting "down with Zionism!"?

After hearing "Nazi Israel" abuse and the ritual “from the river to the sea” calls for Israel’s annihilation? Oh, and support for stone throwers?

Why, ask to speak, of course! 1/4
Meet Wolverhampton councillor Qaiser Azeem. He goes for the “we stand for humanity” pitch seen so often at these awful rallies, including from other speakers at this one. No prizes for guessing what that makes the other side. 2/4
And he is rewarded with - yes, naturally - more “from the river to the sea” annihilation chants.

He also calls his fellow Wolverhampton Labour councillor Obaida Ahmed “sister”. After she led “from the river to the sea” chants herself. 3/4
