The Finsbury Park Mosque and Hamas – A Cracking Joke

I didn’t know the Finsbury Park Mosque was good at humour. Oh my, it is, and how.
The Times has reported that one of the mosque’s trustees, Mohammed Sawalha, is a ruling member of Hamas. ITIC has much more.
Oh, say it ain’t so. Voila! From The Independent:
Asked how Mr Sawalha’s position in [...]

Jeremy Corbyn Praising Viva Palestina

Here’s another scene from Jeremy Corbyn’s political career. Filmed in March 2010, he sings the praises of Viva Palestina.

Viva Palestina was George Galloway’s Hamas support operation in those years. He could not have made the purpose of the Viva Palestina “aid” convoys more explicit, from the very first one in March 2009. [...]

Corbyn rallied with Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh

If peace between Israelis and Palestinians is a cause dear to your heart, would you join an angry anti-Israel rally where one of the speakers is Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh?
Jeremy “Peace Process” Corbyn did just that in London in June 2007. When he addressed the rally, he offered no words of compromise, no coaxing [...]

Herzog asks why IDF isn’t bombing Hamas tunnels

I’ve been wondering the same thing.
The Times of Israel reports:
The Israeli army should bomb tunnels apparently being dug by Hamas terrorists into Israeli territory, the head of the political opposition said Sunday, attacking the lack of action from the government on the threat.
Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog made the comments as Israel Defense Forces officials [...]

Stephen Timms and Labour’s Pit

You might think being stabbed by an Islamist extremist would make you very aware of the gravity of the threats the UK is facing.
But you would be wrong in the case of Labour MP Stephen Timms, for he is no such man. In the same week that his fellow Labour MP Gerald Kaufman was [...]

Corbyn and the “progressive elements” of Hamas

This has to be the most breathtakingly ignorant tweet of the day– from a “[j]ournalist, activist and fanatical supporter” of Jeremy Corbyn, Charley Allan.
@CanYouFlyBobby @jakegoretzki hamas, like most liberation movements, has many currents and wings. JC supports the most progressive elements
— Charley Allan (@charleyallan) July 4, 2015

The thing is, Corbyn apparently agrees that there are [...]

YAB: Israel is now worse than Hamas

With one stupid and offensive article in The Independent, Yasmin Alibhai Brown has single-handedly wiped out whatever good she has done by calling out Islamist extremism.
First, there’s the headline, for which she may or may not be responsible:
The bravery of those many Jews who fight for a fairer Israel
But when you read the article, you [...]

MEND, Zahir Mahmood and Hamas

Zahir Mahmood is another Islamist preacher on the circuit of MEND, the Islamist political agitation group.

Like Yasir Qadhi and Abu Eesa Niamatullah, Mahmood is an excellent match for MEND.
Consider Mahmood’s enthusiastic backing for Hamas. He was a leader of Viva Palestina, George Galloway’s Hamas support operation. Here he is, very excited, at [...]


Following on the great PR success that was #AskGalloway on Twitter, Falastin News reports:
Hamas media coordinator Taher al-Nunu announced the launch of a weeklong interactive campaign starting Friday on social media outlets under the hashtag #AskHamas.
The campaign aims at answering any questions that might be raised by European communities with the approach of the time [...]

Hamas blocks visit to Israel by Gaza children

For all the atrocities and needless death and suffering caused by Hamas, this strikes me as one of the most unforgivable things they have done.
Hamas authorities in the Gaza Strip prevented on Sunday a group of Palestinian children who lost parents in the July-August war with Israel from making a rare goodwill visit to the [...]
