Does Britain Have Any Business Criticizing Israel Over Gaza?




Since the 1960‘s, the British Establishment has been grossly negligent about protecting its own borders from immigration specifically from lawless states in the Caribbean and radical Muslim countries. Britain today is far worse for the decisions made by the English establishment to value their social and economic interests over those of ordinary Britons.


By every measure: crime, violence, religious radicalization, welfare fraud, drug trafficking and cultural degradation, Britain has been coarsened by decisions to allow unfettered immigration for ideological and commercial interests. Britain experimented with social engineering and its ordinary citizens paid the price for the failure.


David Cameron, the conservative-lite leader, is a patently second rate thinker on a good day, but his trip to Turkey is revealing. Good luck to Britain with what they have with him, but that is their problem. Cameron has decided to give Israel advice.


His lecturing of Israel while catering to Islamist Turkey is based solely on his interest in pursuing British financial interests. There can be many arguments as to the clash of interests between Israel and the Palestinians, but none over the right of Israel to protect itself from destruction by people hostile to her very existence.


Israel has good reason to be skeptical of receiving a lecture from David Cameron.

CAMERON: GAZA IS A PRISON CAMP


By Jason Beattie 28/07/2010 Mirror

PM in a humanitarian call for Israel to end its blockade

David Cameron yesterday launched a blistering attack on Israel over its crippling blockade of Gaza.

He accused officials of turning the disputed territory into a prison camp and demanded provisions be allowed in.

In a speech to Turkish business leaders, the PM said: "Humanitarian goods and people must flow in both directions.

"Gaza cannot and must not be allowed to remain a prison camp."

Turkey has felt the full force of Israeli brutality. Nine nationals died when special forces raided a flotilla carrying emergency aid to Gaza in May. Quizzed later on his comments, Mr Cameron insisted the prison description was warranted.

He said: "The fact is we have long supported lifting the blockade and long supported proper humanitarian access."

But the PM called on Turkey to stop supporting Iran with its refusal to back sanctions on Tehran over its nuclear weapons programme. Turkey was one of only two countries to vote against a new round of UN action against Iran.

During his speech in Ankara - with Turkish PM Tayyip Erdogan at his side - he urged officials to put pressure on Iran amid fears it may launch nuclear strikes.

Mr Cameron said: "Let's be frank about this. Iran is enriching uranium to 20% with no industrial logic for what they are doing other than producing a bomb.

"Even if Iran were to complete the deal proposed in their recent agreement with Turkey and Brazil, it would still retain around 50% of its stockpile of low-enriched uranium. So we need Turkey's help now in making it clear to Iran just how serious we are about engaging fully with the international community."

Mr Cameron also said he would push for Turkish membership of the EU and "pave the road" for it to happen.

The PM is angry at the way Euro officials appear to be dragging their heels over the issue, as critics claim Turkey's human rights record is appalling.

Eu chiefs welcomed Mr Cameron's willingness to promote the country's cause. But responding to his "pave the road" comments, one official asked sardonically: "What do you think we've been doing all these years?"

  1. Sherrod Story False

    It isn't true.

    Shirley Sherrod's story in her now famous speech about the lynching of a relative is not true. The veracity and credibility of the onetime Agriculture Department bureaucrat at the center of the explosive controversy between the NAACP and conservative media activist Andrew Breitbart is now directly under challenge. By nine Justices of the United States Supreme Court. All of them dead.

    ---

    Take a look at that paragraph in Sherrod's talk about the murder of her father.

    It was 45 years ago today that my father's funeral was held. I was a young girl at the age of 17 when my father was murdered by a white man in Baker County. In Baker County, the murder of black people occurred periodically, and in every case the white men who murdered them were never punished. It was no different in my father's case. There were three witnesses to his murder, but the grand jury refused to indict the white man who murdered him.

    Now think of what she's saying here.

    Forty-five years ago was 1965.

    Who was the most powerful man in Georgia in 1965? A time when, as Ms. Sherrod says, "the murder of black people occurred periodically, and in every case the white men who murdered them were never punished."

    That man would be one Richard Brevard Russell, Jr. Latecomers will ask: who was Richard Russell, Jr.?

    Russell was the son of a Georgia State Supreme Court Chief Justice, as Bartlett reminds, the Russells a very prominent Georgia family. Elected to the state legislature in 1921 at the ripe age of 24, he quickly went on to be elected Speaker of the Georgia State House of Representatives, then, at 34, he became Governor of Georgia. One year after his election as governor he was elected to the United States Senate, where he remained the rest of his life. In 1965, Richard Russell was not only the most powerful man in Georgia. he was one of the most powerful men in Washington as the state's senior U.S. Senator.

    One of the sources of that power was his Sherrod-like devotion to agriculture and the role of big government. Farm parity, rural electrification, soil conservation, government insured mortgages for farms, agricultural research -- you name it and Dick Russell was there to enthusiastically dole out federal funds for his agriculture projects.

  3. And yet...

    Why, you might ask, was it ever possible in 1965 for Shirley Sherrod and her beloved father to be living in an atmosphere where the horrifying reality was, as she says, "the murder of black people occurred periodically, and in every case the white men who murdered them were never punished."

    If you were the most powerful man in Georgia, not to mention one of the most powerful men in the United States, why in the world would you ever not do something about this?

    Russell himself supplied the answer Shirley Sherrod had to know already, in a private letter back in 1935:

    As one who was born and reared in the atmosphere of the Old South, with six generations of my forebears now resting beneath Southern soil, I am willing to go as far and make a great sacrifice to preserve and insure white supremacy in the social, economic, and political life of our state as any man who lives within her borders.

    With every breath he drew, Richard Russell was fiercely devoted to that sentiment. Lyndon Johnson biographer Robert Caro quotes Russell as saying:

    Any southern white man worth a pinch of salt would give his all to maintain white supremacy.

    He had been a state legislator. The governor. For decades the United States Senator from Georgia. Just like Shirley Sherrod he had a passion for big government policies and shipping money and jobs to Georgia farmers. But there was just one teensy problem with Dick Russell. Just as Shirley Sherrod has dabbled in the mixed waters of using race to push big government programs, so too did Dick Russell. Yet his power for mischief was far greater than Shirley Sherrod's. He did everything he could to ensure that whether it was the brutal beating (not lynching) of Bobby Hall back in the 1940s, when he was already a young senator and ex-governor, or the murder of Shirley Sherrod's father in 1965, when he was the state's powerful senior Senator and in a real sense the boss of Georgia, that "white men who murdered" blacks, as Shirley has correctly noted, "were never punished."

    Here's a suggestion.

    The next time Ms. Sherrod visits Washington, she can take a trip up to Capitol Hill.

    First, she can visit the Supreme Court of the United States, and ponder the connection between progressivism and racism. Take a look inside the ornate chamber where on May 7, 1945, Justice Hugo Black, a lifetime member of the Ku Klux Klan honored with a lifetime seat on the Supreme Court, an honor made possible because he used his racism to support the New Deal, voted to overturn the conviction of Sheriff Claude Screws for beating Bobby Hall to death.

  5. The more interesting piece of news, from Mr Cameron's trip, that Turkish Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan compared the Israeli to Somalian pirates.

    Both groups living outside the Rule of Law of civilized nations.

    The Turkish prime minister called Israel’s reaction to the incident aboard the Turkish boat an act of “piracy,” and compared Israelis to Somali pirates.

    "The pirates are there in Somalia [but] when a similar situation occurs here ... political leaders, who are there to establish a fair life for everyone – they should not remain silent," he said.


    Yep, the "Pirates of the Mediterranean", they are afraid that Turkey is becoming "radicalized".

    Making out like our NATO treaty partner and stalwart ally has some kind of sectarian Islamic government, when nothing could be further from the truth.

    It was the Israeli that have acted in a radical and illegal fashion, like the "Pirates of the Mediterranean" that they are.

  6. Then a short stroll adown the street and she can visit another of Capitol Hill's enduring monuments: The Richard B. Russell United States Senate Office Building. As she strolls down its old marble corridors, surrounded by the offices of powerful United States Senators and their staffs, she perhaps can take the time to reflect once again on the night her father was murdered. And that the very building in which she walks is named in honor of the progressive/racist Democrat who was without doubt responsible for helping lots of Georgia farmers on a scale even Sherrod might not be able to imagine. But to do that he had to help create and nurture the atmosphere that made her father's death -- and that of Bobby Hall -- possible.

    Perhaps, just perhaps, she'll even wonder if she understands just how much her own career and the things she said in that famous speech are sounding to some ears ever-so-slightly just like those of Justice Black and Senator Russell. Down the scale a bit -- a bureaucrat is not the same as a Senator or a Justice -- but still finding herself on the same scale nonetheless. A little concern for the poor folks here, a few government farm dollars and jobs over there and -- oh yes- a little dropping of the race card here and there so those jobs and dollars keep flowing.

    Maybe she can even tell us why she stood up in front of the NAACP and said something that was completely, totally, untrue.

  9. Some prison camp. The prisoners are armed to the teeth, shop at shopping malls, have a weight problem, lob missiles at their neighbors, enforce sharia, persecute the two Christians left in their area, deconstruct greenhouses, live high on the dole and in general cause unholy havoc all around.

    Cameron is an idiot. Worse than Brown.

    Does Britain have any business criticizing Israel over Gaza?

    In one word, no.

    And the moron comes out in favor of letting the Turks into the European Union.

    It's very dispiriting.

    And he said this:


    "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and Muslims our soldiers…” said the Prime Minister of the increasingly Islamic Turkey Recipe Tayyip Erdogan, as he publicly read an Islamic poem.

    Israel is no more or no less legitimate than any other state in the region. It is because it is. If Turkey has a problem with Israel, so what?

    Anyone stupid enough to threaten Israel will pay a heavy price. Anyone that establishes normal trade policies with Israel will get good products and make money.

  42. Very Interesting..

    Britain, who still controls islands and lands all over the globe calls Gaza a "prison camp"

    Turkey who murdered over 1 million Armenians and squats on 1/2 of Cyprus, Squats on Kurdish lands and have murdered 100,000 Kurds, ethnically cleansed Christianity from Turkey, who now support out and out islamic terror organizations agrees...

    and of course, our resident Holiday Inn Express rodent agrees as well...


    Let's revisit some important but boring facts...

    Most Prisons run by the English or Turkey do not have shopping malls, rocket factories, weapons, billions in aid, tunnels to import everything from zoo animals to autos...

    In fact the standard of living inside Gaza is actually HIGHER than the standard of living of Turkey.

    What is amazing is watching the destruction of western society before our eyes...

    England is almost lost...

    Our resident Rat squats illegally on native American lands and is gleeful to point his boney finger at Israel stopping an act of WAR (by a NATO ALLY) by Turkey.

    The fact that Israel has a LEGAl blockade of Gaza is not important to England, Turkey or the Rat...

    The fact that the Israelis returned the empty ship and it's passengers and delivered the goods (happily finding out that most of the med's were expired by months and in some cases years) nothwithstanding, the Rat calls Israel a pirate nation...

    Hmmm... I guess from the Rodent's POV America has no right to stop illegals coming up from Mexico either? Nor searching them for drugs or weapons?

    No the Rat is insane, he is a Jew hating, anti-semite...

    We also know that the Rat (between his running out of his anti-depressant) goes into fits of Israel hating rage...

    Well congrats to the Rat...

    I think he made it 8 days without a lester crown, Israel, jew baiting rant...

    Rat is a self confessed murderer.. He claims since he wasnt caught (committing murder south of the border) he is not-guilty of any crimes...

    This is a man (?) that thinks (?) he has a right to judge Israel?

    Please get a grip.....

    Hold on Rodent Man, your meds are on there way...

    Hopefully someday soon, maybe if we are lucky, you will take too many of those funny little pills and we'll never hear from your sick, twisted mind again...

    one can only hope...

  61. My Sharona"

    The easily recognizable riff of "My Sharona" was written by the band's guitarist, Berton Averre, years before he ever joined The Knack. He had played it and a drum groove for Doug Fieger, the group's lead singer and rhythm guitarist, who loved it and promised to make it a song. However, Fieger, with no lyric ideas to add, was unsure what to do with it beyond that.

    When Fieger, who was 25, met Sharona Alperin, who was 17 at the time,[1] she inspired a two-month-long run of songwriting, as well as becoming Fieger's girlfriend for the next four years. "It was like getting hit in the head with a baseball bat; I fell in love with her instantly. And when that happened, it sparked something and I started writing a lot of songs feverishly in a short amount of time." Whenever Fieger thought about Alperin, he would think of Berton Averre's guitar riff, and the two worked out the structure and melody from there. Averre was originally averse to using Sharona's name in the song, but Fieger wanted it to be a direct expression of his feelings; Averre ultimately relented. [2]

    After battling cancer for several years, Fieger died at his home in Woodland Hills, California, on February 14, 2010. He was 57 years old.[8]

    Fieger and [Sharona] Alperin eventually got married to separate people, but they remained friends. Alperin says she visited him frequently in his final months. "A lot of his idols, people that meant so much to him in the music industry, came to pay their respects to him," she says. "And it was really beautiful."[9]

  62. Trish,

    Thanks.

    All I wanted was an honest accounting of where you stand.

    ...why, is beyond me.

  63. the rat states: Notice how he avoids the subject of Israeli lawlessness, totally. Focusing, instead, upon what he believes to be my housing and sleeping arrangements.


    Talk about MISDIRECTION....

    I didnt avoid the topic that the LEGAL blockade was violated by Turkey in an act of war...

    I also pointed out that those that point out Israel's fabricated "lawlessness" in fact are themselves lawless...

    From the Rat's squatting on Native American soil, to the British and Turks hugh pattern of land theft to genocide...

    I guess you didnt get to good of a night rest at that Holiday Inn Express..

    Talk your med's rat...

    But check under your bed for Joos 1st...

    We are watching and waiting...

  64. With the new spending, the total amount Congress has allotted for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan surpasses $1 trillion

    WASHINGTON – The House sent President Barack Obama a major increase in war funding Tuesday, undeterred by the release of thousands of classified documents portraying a struggling military effort between 2004 and 2009.

    The House voted 308-114 to pass the almost $59 billion measure to fund Obama's additional 30,000 troops in Afghanistan and other programs.

    Pentagon leaders had warned that money to fund the troops could run out as early as Aug. 7, prompting the House to accept the pared-down Senate version of the legislation.

    Last week the Senate rejected a larger, House-favored bill that would have included billions to help keep teachers on the job, provide aid for college students and enhance border security.

    On gas.

  72. The Volt will, eventually, be a flexfuel. But, that having been said, I don't think either car will be a "Commercial" Success.

    The Volt is too expensive, and the Leaf is, well. . . . . an all-electric.

  73. So, to review the bidding. We have a fuel that is, potentially, the most fuel efficient, and Powerful

    that can be produced in every American County, City, and State,

    AND that's cheaper than Gasoline.

    The "Conservatives" are fighting it, Relentlessly;

    and the "Progressives" are ignoring it.

    There is no subject of Israeli "lawlessness"...

    They have no violated any REAL laws...

    ONE standard of laws for all nations, not just one standard for Israel and all others can ignore them.

    So I reject, OUT OF HAND and subject that claims Israel is being lawless when enforcing a LEGAL BLOCKADE of a LAWLESS terrorist haven and Turkey decides to BE LAWLESS and fund a TERRORIST GROUP to break the blockade, Turkey's has committed an act of war...

    LAWLESSNESS....

    Israel could by all rights of the UN, SINK THE SHIP...

    By ignoring the discussion of who created the situation (Hamas and it's lawlessness of shooting 8000 rockets INTO Israel and it's LAWLESSNESS of kidnapping IN ISRAEL an Israel soldier shows you are not able or willing to discuss the matter.

    Israel has done nothing lawless when it comes to GAZA. If held to the same standard as England, Turkey or the USA Gaza would have been razed.

  76. with all due respect to our military, rat reminds me of the character Colonial Frank Fitts from the movie American Beauty starring Kevin Spacey. As far as Britain goes, they are historic arabists never suspected the jews to survive as they have. Twenty or so years back i had a british doctor, with a gleam in his eye, tell me that the deserts surrounding israel will be turned to glass sometime in the future. just a grunt at the time so i didn't know what to make of it.

    You sure have changed your tune on the Volt, Rufus. Not worth the time to grub in the archives, but the Volt was predicted by you to be a paradigm shift in automotive technology, as I recall. OWTTE

  81. Paradigm Shift/Commercially Unsuccessful

    The two are not, necessarily, mutually exclusive, LT.

    The price is awfully high. We'll see.

  83. I will attempt to make this my only comment on this thread.

    The term "anti-Semite" (and derivations thereof) was coined to refer ONLY to Jew baiters/haters. Even wiki may have that information.

    T, you need to get a grip.

  84. WP: "The term Semite means a member of any of various ancient and modern Semitic-speaking peoples originating in southwestern Asia, including Akkadians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Hebrews, Arabs, and Ethiopian Semites."
