Gosh! Another Anti-Semite in Labour! Not only was the Bradford MP's comment repulsive, her apology rings hollow. Feelings ran high at the time of the Gaza conflict. Feelings running high about conflicts in Gaza seem to compel critics of Israel to resort to the language of classic Jew hatred. Part of the tactic of the lies told by the anti-Israel mob is endowing Palestinian suffering with the awfulness that justifies final solutions against the guilty! It ignores the illegitimacy of much of the Palestinian 'narrative', the crimes and corruption of the leadership, the genocidal aspirations, the terror perpetrated in its name and is just so horrid that any expression of indignation and violence is merely understandable reacting rather than murderous cruelty. The MP has expressed apology for all offence and maintains that she does not stand by the genocidal views she so openly expressed in the past two years. It was irresponsible.
So was Hitler irresponsible when he said: “The internal expurgation of the Jewish spirit is not possible in any platonic way. For the Jewish spirit is the product of the Jewish person. Unless we expel the Jewish people. Unless we expel the Jewish people soon, they will have judaized our people within a very short time.” Was he just feeling a little angry about Jewish control of the media like Ms Shah was feeling blue on behalf of the Palestinians? Her words of "apology" : 'When the “Gaza-Israel” conflict happened I played an active role in highlighting the plight of the Palestinian people, attended demonstrations to stop the bombing and called for equality in media reporting of the issues.
'Feelings were running high across the world and Bradford was no different. Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I’m shocked myself at the language I used in some instances during the Gaza-Israel conflict.' Is this a well informed, balanced response to so-called Palestinian plight? It was a grotesque slur on Israel's lawful and justified actions against the murder of its own citizens. Even if you argue, as anti-Zionists always do, that Israel's actions were 'disproportionate', which is fallacy deluxe, would that justify her remarks? You can turn a blind eye to the murder of Israelis by homicide bombers and knife wielding thugs and call for the 'transportation' of all of Israel utilising Nazi terminology? That is not feelings running high about Palestinian suffering. Do something to alleviate suffering. Encourage the Palestinian leaders to abandon their genocidal actions, to stop siphoning western aid into their mansions, jets and tunnels. Pressure them to make concessions and enter dialogue. The fact that this person could in the first instance make such jaundiced and pernicious comments based on lies, calumnies and antisemitic tropes, shows where she was at the time. Until she gets her facts straight about anti-Israel nonsense and does not use it as her excuse for her inexcusable words no apology is good enough.
She currently is suspended. She will willingly be sent to Labour-Coventry for re-education and then re-emerge as a jolly good fellow in the party of tolerance, human rights and all that is progressive who only say racist, sick things when incensed by Palestinian propaganda.
