Oxfam and Comic Relief funding Palestinian Jew hatred

I have posted numerous times about how the major charities funded by Comic Relief are directly funding Palestinian propaganda and anti-Semitism (as well as funding organisations directly controlled by Hamas of course). As an example of both the ridiculous causes that are funded and the anti-Semitism that results, Elder of Ziyon  has an expose of how a Palestinian NGO (Miftah) funded by Oxfam published as pure an anti-semitic screed as is imaginable - resurrecting the reprehensible blood libel that Jews ritually slaughter Christian children and consume their blood on Passover (for more on the story see here).

It inspired me to produce the drawing above (feel free to copy it - I plan to drop some copies off at Oxfam shops).

It's amazing how, uniquely when it comes to the Palestinians, 'charity' can be redefined to mean 'giving money for any purpose whatsover'. Likewise we now find that being an 'aid worker' also has a completely different meaning when it comes to the Palestinians (as far as they are concerned anybody who spends their time promoting Israel hatred is an 'aid worker').
And see this spin on the story.

Update on the story here.

Redefining anti-Israel bigots as 'aid workers'

Front Page of the Sun, 30/3/2013
It is appalling that two Pakistani-born British women have been raped in Libya. But to call them 'aid workers' as every main stream media outlet has in the UK (see this report about the BBC and Times coverage) is a blatant lie. And it is scandal that this story is also being used to promote the Big Lie against Israel.  Of more concern than the BBC and Times articles is this one that appeared in yesterday's Sun (since it is read by far more people).
Page 7, The Sun, 30/3/2013

These people were not 'aid workers' (as the article linked above makes very clear) and their mission had nothing to do with compassion for the Palestinians. They were part of another publicity stunt aimed purely to demonise the State of Israel, and the Sun has fully taken the bait - notably in the last two columns of the main article (click to enlarge it). Far from Israel blockading medical supplies from reaching Gaza as implied, it actually sends lorries carrying many tons of such supplies daily into Gaza despite the continued attacks at the very checkpoints through which the lorries are sent. And whereas Israel certainly does attempt to stop the flow of weapons and weapons-making equipment into Gaza (a persistent threat that the article does not mention) it never stops humanitarian aid from getting through, which is more than can be said for Egypt which also has a border with Gaza but is strangely exempt from accusations of 'mounting a blockade'.  The article is correct in stating that the convey was run by the Turkish organisation IHH. But IHH is not an 'international aid group' as stated but an Islamist organisation that even Turkey classified as a terrorist group not too long ago (see here for a good expose of IHH). The IHH link inevitably leads the article to repeats the false narrative about the Mavi Marmara ship incident in 2010, thereby further demonising Israel.

New post on Palestinian 'aid' money here.

Remember the massacre of Jewish doctors and nurses because the main stream media won't help you

Daniel Greenfield has a must-read account of the Hadassah Medical Convoy Massacre that took place 65 years ago today, when 78 Jewish doctors and nurses taking supplies to the Haddasah Hospital in Jerusalem were murdered by Arabs (with the full complicity of the British occupying forces incidentally).
 "..the burning alive of doctors and nurses in a medical convoy, showed Israelis that peace was impossible... The barbarity of the attack was then followed by snapshots of the dead, who in some cases had been decapitated, being sold as postcards as yet another reminder that the enemy was operating on a whole other notion of morality."

Few people outside Israel, even Jews, know about the massacre. On the 10th anniversary of the Park Hotel Passover massacre (which was almost totally ignored in the UK) I wrote about this lack of awareness and compared it with the total awareness in the UK of 'massacres' of Palestinians that were actually bogus:
.. when a few days later Israelis attacked a terrorist enclave in Jenin (going hand-to-hand to avoid civilian casualties - resulting in the deaths of 23 Israelis and 53 Palestinians - of whom 48 were 'gunmen') there was condemnation from the whole world as the media became obsessed with the myth that a 'massacre' had taken place. Although the massacre myth was debunked as a hoax within a few days, most people still remember the 'Jenin massacre'. Similarly, in stark contrast to the Passover massacre,everyone knows about "Deir Yassin" which the Palestinians (wrongly) claimed was a massacre of Arabs in 1948 and which is widely commemorated not just annually in the UK but at more or less every meeting where the Palestinians want to make a point about Israel's 'brutality'. In contrast to the zero articles in the UK media about the Passover massacre since 2002 there have been many hundreds of articles commemorating the non-massacres at Deir Yassin and Jenin. 
 If you google about the Jenin or Deir Yassin 'massacres' you will find literally hundreds of thousands of hits including many articles in the main stream media. A similar search for Hadassah Medical Convoy Massacre brings up a tiny fraction of the hits and fails to bring up a single article published in the main stream media.

How to get a letter published in the Evening Standard

As per several previous posts about the Evening Standard all you need to do is write some peurile anti-Israel nonsense, no matter how irrelevant. This letter appeared today:

Based on this template the Standard could roll out any number of future letters based on more or less any Royal activity. For example:

Next time Wills and Kate visit a hospital in Stoke-on-Trent:
 "I was surprised to see the Prince and Princess of Cambridge visiting patients at this hospital. Will they now be going on to visit the 5 billion Palestinians denied proper hospital treatment for 65 years by the fascist Israelis. Or is royal sympathy carefully selected only for those who are not Palestinians or victims of Jews"

Next time the Queen sends a message of condolence to victims of a major disaster:
 "I was surprised to see the Queen send this message of condolence to the families of people killed in this disaster. Will she now be sending  messages of condolence to the families of the 50 trillion Palestinians killed in the last 65 years by the fascist Israelis. Or is royal sympathy carefully selected only for those who are not Palestinians or victims of Jews"

When political correctness leads to Jewish kids being killed

A year ago Islamic terrorist Mohammed Merah killed 3 children and a parent/teacher at a Jewish School in Toulouse. Before those murders he had killed two French soldiers in separate incidents. The politically correct French authorities - along with the main stream media - insisted initially that the murderer must be a 'right wing white racist', even though it was clear to those who were not naive (including myself as I blogged my views about it before the real killer was known) that the killer was a Muslim.
Murdered because of political correctness:  Rabbi Yonatan Sandler and his sons Aryeh, 6, and Gavriel, 3 (Left);  Myriam Monsenego, 8 (Right)
Now it transpires - see Daniel Greenfield's report - that this political correctness cost the lives of the Jewish children because the French intelligence service had identified Merah as a likely suspect after the first two killings but decided not to arrest him since, as a Muslim, he did not fit their profile of a white racist.
