Cifwatch recently flagged a most bizarre exchange between Richard Silverstein and a Gazan woman called Sally Idwedar. You can read the whole thing here on IsraellyCool. It reminded me of a post I wrote some time ago on Palestinian solidarity.
‘Solidarity’, in a political context, is used to denote a non-judgemental identification with, and support for, [...]
It appears Livingstone favourite and Muslim Brotherhood spiritual leader Sheik Qaradawi has been expelled from Qatar, along with the rest of the Muslim Brotherhood (their offices have been closed) and the leader of Hamas, Khaled Meshaal.
The Muslim Brotherhood is on the slide.
Qaradawi’s statement last month calling for the extermination of Shiites in Syria can’t have [...]

Last Wednesday Home Secretary Theresa May had this to say in a speech (emphases added):
Speaking at the Community Security Trust annual dinner in central London on Wednesday evening, Mrs May said more would be done to stop extremists “masquerading as charities” in order to raise funds.
Mrs May praised the Charity Commission’s efforts to take a [...]
Here is a humorous line from Interpal’s latest annual report to the Charity Commission:
Due to the 2003 US designation of Interpal, the trustees are alert to all subsequent risks and allegations, and are especially diligent in their practices. The trustees are also very sensitive with whom the charity chooses to work and associate with.
Ho ho! [...]
The DeLiberation website is a collaborative project of dissenting antizionists in the UK, who began to question the Holocaust and discuss Jewish power, in such an obvious way that they were widely recognised as antisemites. The Deliberation writers rallied around the antisemitic author and jazz musician Gilad Atzmon.
The website became an Adullam’s Cave for the [...]
Kamel Ranaja, a member of Hamas’s political bureau, has been killed in Damascus, according to a party official.
Remarkably Hamas did not immediately blame Israel.
[S]hortly after his death was announced, the new pan-Arabic television station Al-Mayadeen reported that he used to serve as aide to Mahmoud al-Mabhouh, a senior Hamas member who took part in [...]
What an exciting month it has been for the Palestine Solidarity Campaign! Its chair Hugh Lanning, who is also the deputy general secretary of the trade union PCS, and his comrade Sarah Colborne finally got to meet to meet the Hamas heroes in Gaza.
Lanning is second from right in the photo below, [...]

Kaufman calls for boycott of Israel. Andy Slaughter on his left and Jeremy Corbyn (scratching).
There were more surreal ongoings at Parliament on Monday night when the Palestinian Return Centre held a seminar on the Palestinian refugees, which was attended by four Labour MPs.
I was banned from filming and photographing by the organisers eventhough there [...]
The charity Interpal is a key node of the Hamas support network in the UK. It provides both material and political backing to the terrorist group.
Since 2009 it has taken to organising convoys to Gaza under the “Miles of Smiles” banner, often in partnership with fellow Hamas supporters and vicious antisemites.
Another convoy has reached [...]
The Palestinian Return Centre is an organisation which is aligned with Hamas.
It isn’t interested in a return to a Palestinian state, living in harmony with Israel. Rather, its goal is to push the ‘return’ of the descendants of those living in mandate Palestine, immediately before 1948, to Israel: with the goal of extinguishing the state.
