Lies, Damned Lies, Hypocrisy,and stuff only an especially dumbass American would consider a revelation

Remember the nasty BNP-inspired hate piece Uncle Jimmy liked so much, he reposted the whole thing - the set of twenty totally false"facts" about Islam?

Well, he's posted a follow-up here. Apologies for linking to this filth but it needs to be exposed.

This hypocritical twat says at the end:

I’ve had e-mails and comments to the effect that Tony Blair would never insinuate that ALL Muslims are terrorists, and that as a supporter of his nor should I.

Let me make one thing clear -

THEY’RE right. Blair doesn’t EVER so insinuate, and nor do I.

I know he's had the emails and comments (not published of course): I sent some of them. But let's look at the evidence, in the post where he makes his CAPITALISED DENIAL, shall we? He posts an enormous list of examples of "Islamic terrorism". So let's look at some of these "examples" (from an American Christian far-right site - where else?).

3 March 2020 Mosul Iraq - "An imam is gunned down in his mosque by Religion of Peace rivals."
3 March 2010 Kirkuk Iraq - "Terrorists stab a man and his wife to death inside their home.

So let's go to the original Iraqi reports:


So "murdered by persons unknown" would be the proper description in each case. Murder, then, certainly (if Uncle Jimmy will allow me to use the term: after all, nobody has been tried and convicted yet, so perhaps he'd prefer "deaths in suspicious circumstances"?) And fairly certainly, given the locations, murder by Muslims. But to treat any murder by a Muslim as an act of terrorism is precisely to insinuate that all Muslims are terrorists. Blair Supporter, Uncle Jimmy, whatever the fuck the anonymous foreign coward's name is, is simply lying, and lying to cover up his racist agenda. And I repeat: Tony Blair may have been the worst PM in British history, a Europhobic Thatcherite who destroyed the Labour Party, a warmongering coward, awash in corruption - but I don't believe for a second that even in private he would go along with any of Uncle Jimmy's white Christian supremacist bilge.

And please note that to prove that I haven't even had to get into the question of whether Iraqis and Afghans who decline to be trampled on by a foreign invader and decide to fight back count as terrorists, though the list Jimmy publishes appears to include military as well as civilian casualties.

P.S. Oh, and here's another piece of racist filth he sees fit to reprint for our edification. Its author (David Bedein) makes up a series of "facts" about a future Palestinian state. There is no suggestion that these "facts" come from anywhere but Mr Bedien's crazed fantasies, but Jimmy laps them up. You know the kind of stuff by now: "Anyone who sells land to a Jew will be liable to the death penalty in the Palestinian State." "Not one Jew will be allowed to live in a Palestinian State."

Bedien runs a hasbara centre in Jerusalem funded by American Zionists. A good sample of his output is a piece entitled "The Big Lie of a Massacre at Deir Yassin". Interestingly he quotes from an upcoming BBC documentary in support of his claim that the massacre was all made up. Memo to budding hasbara-merchants: remember what lies you told yesterday. However tempting it is to make use of the torrent of Zionist propaganda that the BBC spews out, you're supposed to promote the fiction that it has some kind of pro-Palestinian agenda. DOH!

In a lighter vein, Jimmy witters on about another piece of right-wing Israeli junk which contains the gem “Mahmoud Abbas’ new precondition that the international community recognize the 167 (sic) lines in the West Bank as the new Palestinian border bolsters the assessment that the Palestinians have largely abandoned a negotiated settlement and instead are actively pursuing a unilateral approach to statehood.” Um, it's hardly a new precondition: it's called UN Security Council Resolution 242, and dates from 22 November 1967. Since when was it an abandonment of negotiation to hold Israel to the same standard of compliance with UN resolutions as every other country? Finally, with a great flourish, he informs his readers (who he supposes were unaware of the fact) that Iran and Afghanistan are not Arab nations. Gosh - who knew?

If Uncle Jimmy isn't an American (and let's face it, only an American would waste so much time on a busted flush like Blair) then I'm Osama bin Laden. Which - despite my engineering qualifications, my beard, and my hat - I'm not.
