Update on Israel-hating bigot footballing 'hero' Mohamed Salah

Update 28 Dec 2018Newspaper reports claim that Salah has threatened to quit Liverpool if they sign an Israeli player.  Given Salah's record of appalling antisemitism anti-Zionism (see below) the story certainly sounds credible, although presumably Salah was unaware that the player involved (Moanes Dabour) is actually an Israeli Arab. Generally, those who 'boycott' Israel tend to only boycott Israeli Jews even while claiming to be not antisemitic. However, whether or not the story is true, the FACTS below confirm that Salah is an anti-Israel bigot.
Update 23 June 2017Salah has returned to the English Premier League, having signed for Liverpool for a club record £34 million.

Update (one year on) 2 Feb 2015: Salah has been quietly moved out of Chelsea having barely played a game for them 

The following was posted 24 Jan 2014 with the title "If Mohamed Salah is not an antisemite Abramovic can get him to prove it". Seems like he never did....

Mohamed Salah is an Egyptian footballer who has just signed for Chelsea - a club owned by Roman Abramovic - for £11 million. The English sports media this morning is covering this story with  headlines like "Salah: I am not an antisemite".  Of course, Salah is not an antisemite. Like most Muslim non-antisemites he does not explicitly hate all 'Jews', only 'Jews who believe they have a right to live in their historical homeland', i.e.'Zionists'.

In August 2013 Salah's team Basel FC were drawn against Maccabi Tel-Aviv in a champions league qualifier**. In the home tie Salah refused to shake the hands of the Israeli team, which is a remarkable achievement given that the EUFA protocol requires the home team to line up while the away team walks along the line shaking each hand. Salah managed to 'avoid this' by going to the touchline, pretending to tie up his shoe laces. He also refused to shake hands with any Maccabi players after the game, which Basel won 1-0. After the match Salah announced he would refuse to play in the return leg in Israel. Only after his club threatened to terminate his contract if he did not travel he announced:
I will fly to Israel , Football is more important than politics and it is my job. In my thoughts I am going to play in Palestine and not Israel and I am also going to score and win there. The Zionist flag won’t be shown in the Champions League.
Elder of Ziyon covered the events of the return leg in Tel Aviv in which Salah again avoided shaking hands with the Maccabi players (this time by bumping them instead). As usual EUFA, who are so determined to 'drive out racism' from the game refused to take any action when it came down to antisemitism.

In December 2012 when Chelsea's star player (another Muslim) Edin Hazard joined a petition to boycott Israel from hosting the EUFA under-21 championship I wrote to Chelsea asking if Roman Abramovic (who claims to love Israel) was aware of the stance of one of his players. My letter actually produced a positive outcome. In signing Salah, Abramovic could still turn this into something positive by asking his new employee to publicy apologise for his previous comments and to prove his sincerity by getting Chelsea to play a match in Tel Aviv - with Salah shaking hands with the Israelis.

** Incredibly Basel have been drawn against Maccabi Tel Aviv again - this time in the Europa League - another 2-legged tie to be played in February. This is presumably one of the reasons Salah was keen to get a move away from Basel in mid-season.

Update: I have sent the following letter to my contact at Chelsea (note I promised not to reveal the name of this person):
We were in contact about a year ago when I alerted you to the fact that Edin Hazard was named as one of the footballers supporting an antisemitic boycott of Israel hosting the EUFA under-21 championships. You were very helpful on that occasion and were able to confirm that Hazard did not support the boycott.
Today I see that Chelsea have received assurances from Mohamed Salah that he did not make the antisemitic statements and actions that have been previously attributed to him. I am not sure what antisemitic statements and actions this refers to to but what I DO know is that he WAS certainly responsible for a number of actions and statements in August (in relation to Basel's two-legged tie with Maccabi Tel-Aviv) that I (and many others) consider to be pure antisemitism. There is no denying, for example, that he refused in both games to shake the hands of his Israeli opponents and there is no denying that he initially refused to even go to the match in Israel and when he was forced to by Basel FC he made an antisemitic statement about Israel. The details are on a blog posting I have made today.
Fortunately, as I said in the article, there is a simple way that Salah can at least genuinely apologize for his actions and demonstrate that he is indeed not an antisemite. Chelsea can and should arrange for him to go to Israel and publicly shake the hands of the Maccabi players. Ideally this could be done in a friendly match involving Chelsea FC. Anything less than such an action will always leave open the notion that Chelsea have signed a nasty, unsporting antisemite who also demonstrates a total lack of respect for his fellow professionals. I do not believe Chelsea FC would be happy to have such an employee would they?

Lockerbie 30 years on: the atrocity was committed by Palestinian terrorists but it is their 'privilege' not to be blamed

Today is the 30th anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing. The fact that a Palestinian group (funded by Iran to do it) got away without blame is just another example of their privilege.

This is something I have reported on many times before including here recently. The fact is, it was politically inconvenient for the British and American governments at the time to go after the Palestinians and Iranians (and as - far as European governments are concerned - the same applies even more so today).

Fortunately, although many relevant articles about it are censored by Google, the true story is finally being told - there are even articles in today's Mirror and Express with the real story.

'Palestinian' privilege rule 153: Having your bad behaviour censored.

Not a single main stream media outlet will report this. The mother and this baby were shot deliberately by a group of 'Palestinian' terrorists who will be rewarded with massive salaries for life. No 'Palestinian' child has ever been deliberately harmed by Israelis. If an Israeli had accidentally shot a pregnant 'Palestinian' mother and the baby died there would be wall-to-wall media coverage and worldwide condemnation. That's 'Palestinian' privilege....

Israeli statement on France violence

More "Palestinian privilege" in today's Daily Express

The notion of "Palestinian privilege" is one I have continually discussed. Another aspect of this privilege is that the main stream media now increasingly censors out any mention of 'Palestinian(s)' when a story relates to them behaving badly. This is, of course, in sharp contrast to the media's obsession of talking about 'Palestinians' if they can link them as being victims in any way.

Typical of this censorship is the double page article commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Lockerbie terrorist attack in Today's Daily Express. The article focuses on Jim Swire's campaign to bring the real culprits to justice. As anybody who has followed the story knows, the Libyan who was convicted was almost certainly a convenient patsy - it was inconvenient at the time to go after the real culprits who are believed to have been the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine General Command (PFLP-GC) and their sponsors - the Iranian government - who hired them to 'retaliate' for the accidental shooting down of an Iranian plane by the US ship Vincennes.

It was partly due to 'Palestinian privilege' that the PFLP-GC were never charged with the crime. But, while the article is actually about the PFLP-GC involvement, the Express has decided - for reasons of  'Palestinian privilege' to censor out any mention of 'Palestinian' from the report. The article refers only to the acronym PFLP-GC without ever stating what it stands for to ensure readers have no idea that it is a Palestinian terrorist group. In fact, most readers would assume it was an Iranian group from the way the story is written:
Swire, like many informed Lockerbie watchers, believes the terror group, the PFLP-GC, the first suspects in the case, were the culprits, and that the bombing was ordered and paid for by Iran.
Moreover, whereas everyone else in the story is identified by their nationality, we get only the following reference to the Palestinian terrorist Mohammed Abo Talb**:
Five years ago, he travelled to Sweden to confront Mohammed Abo Talb, a convicted terrorist then recently released from a 20-year sentence in that country, hoping to question him over his suspected role in the bombing.
The Express clearly feels that readers must not be told that the terrorist is a Palestinian in case it might dampen their sympathy for the world's ultimate 'victims'.

**Mohammed Abo Talb was a member of two Palestinian terrorist groups although, like many 'Palestinians', he was actually born in Egypt.
