Jenny Tonge rants about the Holocaust and idolises Ismail Haniyeh.

Mads Gilbert and Jenny Tonge last night in Parliament.

Last night yet another hate-meeting took place in Parliament with the Palestine Return Centre holding an event “to commemorate the memory of Palestinian victims over the past six decades especially the last war in Gaza”. (Here is what the PRC is all about. It makes unpleasant reading for Jews).

Jenny Tonge was there ranting about how the Palestinians weren’t responsible for the Holocaust and asking “how can the Israelis treat the Palestinians the way they do after what happened in the Holocaust”.

She criticised the power of the “Israel lobby” and held up a magazine with Hamas’ Ismail Haniyeh on the front cover and proceeded to idolise him.

She told us about a Palestinian fishing-boat which was boarded by the Israeli navy off Gaza. She said the Palestinian fishermen had their hands bound behind their backs and were forced to swim to the Israeli boat.

And she spoke about why she thinks she comes in for such heavy criticism and put this down to the fact that she stands up for the Palestinians and criticises Israel. The latter, she thinks, is viewed as being anti-Semitic.

When challenged by Jonathan Hoffman to give an example of when criticism of Israel has been called anti-Semitic she said she could give “many examples”, but failed to come through with even one. Here’s the action:

We also heard from Dr. Mads Gilbert, a Norwegian anesthesiologist, who gave us the names of Palestinian children who had been killed or who had horrendous injuries. He spent most of last night trying to flog his book about it all called Eyes on Gaza. Available from all good retailers.

We heard from Manal Timraz. Manal lost 15 members of her family during Operation Cast Lead, 11 of which were aged between twelve and two, and has lost another four since. After asking us to stand for a minute’s silence she emotionally outlined how the only way forward is a one-state-solution.

She lives in England next to a Jewish woman who “didn’t steal my land and I didn’t steal her’s”.

Gilbert had called for an academic boycott of Israel and during the Q&A I asked him how he could propose such an obviously racist policy and whether he used any Israeli products himself.

He said that the accusation that he was “a racist” was “absolutely preposterous” (I didn’t call him “a racist”) and said that he used computers without Intel chips. He then accused me of “smiling and laughing arrogantly” while Manal was speaking. I was smiling, but only at Manal’s suggestion that Jonathan go to the West Bank with her to drink tea “like a Palestinian”.

Gilbert further rejected accusations of anti-Semitism, eventhough none were made, with:

“If you want to look for anti-Semitism don’t look among us because we are profoundly anti-racist”.

He’s even friends with a Canadian Jew!

But how can anyone seriously claim to be “profoundly anti-racist” while hero-worshipping a self-confessed Jew hater (see Hamas Charter) like Ismail Haniyeh?

Here is the Q&A footage. First you hear PRC’s Sameh Habeeb, then Manal Timraz, then Mads Gilbert (from 4 mins. 15 secs.) and, finally, Jenny Tonge again, who, sadly, wasn’t impressed with me or Jonathan:

  1. Of course they aren’t anti-Semitic. They just want Israel liquidated and all Jewish presence in the area erased….exactly what Abass and the PA want. After all, he has publically said stated no Jews will be allowed to live in a Palestinian state (what will he do about an Israeli Embassy). I note, in one photo there is a pic of the loathsome Kaufman (I refuse to address him as ‘Sir, as that suggests respect). I trust no one was surprised at Clegg’s outburst. After all, he is joined by Steele, Mengis Cambell, and that vitrilolic bitch, Jenny Tongue. Hopefully, at the next General Election, the LibDems will be decimated.

  2. Michael cohen

    David Icke would be suspicious of this lot because he would see at least one shape shifting reptile on the platform ..oh hang on a minute

  3. Is that Gerard ‘the kapo’ Hoffmann looking smug, self righteous and oh so important?

  4. There should be a pub named after her; Ye Olde Slapper.
    Does she still have the Liberal Democrat whip in the Lords?

  5. “He’s even friends with a Canadian Jew!”

    Haha!

  6. What Brian said. Plus: She says she’s wrongly accused of anti-semitism, then whips out a picture of one of the biggest anti-semites and praises him to the rafters.

  7. Oh yes Richard – remember that Elizabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff was found guilty in German court, not for telling lies, but for how she told the truth – so please do be careful of that expression you carry – it could incriminate you!!

    It seems that these self confessed liberal anti-racist bigots haven’t read the kind of reading material I access on a daily basis – either by design or maybe because they are so blinded by their hatred they refuse to look at source material rather preferring anecdotes to present as fact at their little gatherings of fellow Jew haters. If they were truly liberal they might have come across this little piece:
    http://palwatch.org/main.aspx?fi=452&fld_id=452&doc_id=6099
    Quote:
    PA Mufti Muhammad Hussein comes to the podium and says:
    “47 years ago the [Fatah] revolution started. Which revolution? The modern revolution of the Palestinian people’s history. In fact, Palestine in its entirety is a revolution, since [Caliph] Umar came [to conquer Jerusalem, 637 CE], and continuing today, and until the End of Days. The reliable Hadith (tradition attributed to Muhammad), [found] in the two reliable collections, Bukhari and Muslim, says:
    “The Hour [of Resurrection] will not come until you fight the Jews.
    The Jew will hide behind stones or trees.
    Then the stones or trees will call:
    ‘Oh Muslim, servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.’
    Except the Gharqad tree [which will keep silent].”
    Therefore it is no wonder that you see Gharqad [trees]
    surrounding the [Israeli] settlements and colonies..”

    The harpee Tongue and her motley bunch of Jew haters probably also didn’t come across this little piece of news when that nice Mr Haniyeh arrived in Tunis recently:
    http://cifwatch.com/2012/01/06/guardian-moderate-islamism-update-tunisians-greet-hamas-leader-with-chants-of-kill-the-jews/

    I realise many of your readers have probably accessed these pieces of news, but that bunch you write about wouldn’t demean themselves with the truth!

    Abu Rahma is now dead because he spoke out about Hamas. It is unbelievable that Tonge and her friends are ignorant of this fact, of what Hamas stands for and of the brutality it perpetrates on the very Palestinians she is trying to defend. This man’s only crime was to write about the Hamas crimes on his people, a braver man than any of that rag bag of ignoramuses that attended the meeting or belong to those groups whose hate for Jews precludes them seeking the truth. How can Tonge say that Israel’s actions will lead her to be surrounded by enemies? What does she think is actually the situation, that all those Arab neighbours love Israel, have never tried several times to bomb her out of existence? Does she not know any history? Goodness, how they demean themselves in their ignorance!

  9. Tonge is not mentally disturbed, of course.

  10. A thoroughly unpleasant bunch of Jew haters.

    • Let’s not forget those other LibDem Jew-haters: Sir Menzies Campbell, Lord Steele, and of course the Deputy Prime Minister, Nick ‘Israel is vandalising the West Bank’ Clegg. Of course, they will all say they love Jews/have Jewish friends, and their hatred is Israel. But I know better (in my view).

  11. This idea that being anti Zionist is fine as it is not Anti Jewish or Jew hatred, but hatred of the Israeli government, is shot to pieces by the Hamas Charter that governs the Palestinians who elected Hamas, led by that nice Mr Haniyeh who Harpee Tonge was so pleased to announce has at last made 4 pages in a UK newspaper. We see in article 32 of this blueprint for Islamic imperialist domination how, in one sentence, a “struggle with world Zionism” becomes “the fight with the warmongering Jews.” So we find that the word Jew is not far off the lips of those who increasingly use the word Zionist in their racist speeches and lectures:

    Hamas Charter – Yale University Avelon Project
    http://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/hamas.asp

    Article 32:
    “……….The Islamic Resistance Movement consider itself to be the spearhead of the circle of struggle with world Zionism and a step on the road. The Movement adds its efforts to the efforts of all those who are active in the Palestinian arena. Arab and Islamic Peoples should augment by further steps on their part; Islamic groupings all over the Arab world should also do the same, since all of these are the best-equipped for the future role in the fight with the warmongering Jews.

    “..and we have put enmity and hatred between them, until the day of resurrection. So often as they shall kindle a fire of war, Allah shall extinguish it; and they shall set their minds to act corruptly in the earth, but Allah loveth not the corrupt doers.” (The Table – verse 64)…..”

    This is the kind of drivel Tonge and her ilk support and they need to be outed soon!

  12. Steve Bronfman

    After only watching 30 seconds she already said something so factually incorrect that I actually emailed her to correct it.

    Tonge says “The Palestians had nothing to do with the Holocaust”

    How about the Palestnian leader; the Mufti of Jerusalem participating in the Final Solution conference, living in Berlin throughout the war and spouting Nazi propaganda throughout the Arab world, founding 2 SS Muslim divisions who murdered 1 million Serbs and Jews and others.

    I’m not sure how anyone could be more involved in the Holocaust. This was the LEADER of the Palestinians.

    This woman is either stupid or a propagandist but in any case she’s dangerous.

  13. Steve Bronfman

    “Why nobody does anything to help the Palesitnians?”

    The Pali’s have a whole UN body just for THEM. They’ve received more money per capita than Europeans under the Marshall plan. How about Amnesty and every left wing NGO? How about almost evert Arab and European govenment, US charities etc?

    By her logic why aren’t Muslims doing more to criticise Terrorist? Or the actions of almost every Arab government eg Syria, Iran, Egypt massacring their own people.

    “Time is getting short”? This sounds like a threat. How is this any different from the last 60 years? Actually Israel has Kurds, Berbers and many other allies in the region.

  14. Steve Bronfman

    During Q and A;

    “Palestinians were replaced by Jews who are not even semites,” applauding racism. Are these people for real?

    • richardmillett

      Yes they are. I think it was Sameh Habeeb who said that. He heads the PRC.

    • Ashkenazi Jews are not semites. They are Caucasian. Mizrahi Jews (Arab Jews) are semites. That’s why the term antisemitic is an empty signifier. Jew hatred would be more accurate.

      • The term antisemite grew from the word “Judenhass” Jews hatred.
        Do a search yourself to find how it came about. It was coined by Wlhelm Marr in Germany in the mid-19th century

  15. If someone would publish a copy of the all-party whip, people would know in advance when meetings are taking place in which this antisemitic garbage is publicly excreted. Volunteers could greet folk with a leaflet on the European draft definition (ie comparison of Israel to Nazi Germany etc). I’d do it. I’m not proposing an pro- or anti- Israel/Palestine demonstration, but an anti-racism message delivered firmly and politely.

  16. Not only is harpee Tonge wrong about Arab Palestinian participation in the Holocaust, she ignores their continued participation in the Nazi ideology to exterminate all Jews. She also ignores the fact that it was the Jewish Palestinians who joined the allies to assist in the war effort. I have posted on this blog before just some of the videos I have found to show this continuum and it surprises me that a woman (and all those who are involved in this replacement history) who has tax paid for researchers at her disposal can’t get her facts right.

    Times are now worse than Europe 1920/30/40 as communications allow these bigots an entire new propaganda tool. We really need to get an improvement in our communication of these facts to the wider public or we risk harpee Tonge and her ilk indoctrinating them.

    She is no different to the Black Shirts in the East End or Central Johannesburg who lobbied to rid the world of Jews. She only chooses her words more carefully as she is of course “liberal”. In less dire situations one would feel sorry for this unfortunate woman, but there is too much at stake to give her any leeway.

  17. http://allanbogle.hubpages.com/hub/Husseininationalsocialism

    Haj Amin Al_Husseini was instrumental in ushering in National Socialism within the Arab World and in contributing to tens of thousands of deaths both directly and indirectly during the War. He has influenced men from Adolf Eichmann to Abdul Nasser to Yasser Arafat (to whom he was related) and was directly supported by Adolph Hitler. During his life, al-Husseini was responsible for briefly overthrowing the Iraqi government in 1941, creating Nazi SS divisions comprised of Muslims, representing and spreading National Socialism within the Arab World, fostering and implementing a radical departure within Arab-Jewish relations from peaceful co-existence to that of mass killings (eliminating ninety percent of all the Jews within the Balkans alone), and being responsible for the deaths of tens of thousands of Jews. Additionally, he had successfully fused National Socialism, Islamic fundamentalism, and Pan-Arabism into a hybrid that exists to this day.

    The Nazi connection to Islamic extremism is a topic little known and understood in modern society. As the West attempts to understand the long simmering blood feud between Arab and Jew, little is spoken of the role that Haj Amin al-Husseini played in escalating the conflict through his collaboration with the Third Reich.

    “Ashkenazi Jews are not Semites. They are Caucasian. Mizrahi Jews (Arab Jews) are Semites. That’s why the term anti-Semitic is an empty signifier. Jew hatred would be more accurate.”

    This statement is wrong both from a historical and linguistic perspective and from a biological perspective. This really annoys me as it only shows the ignorance of the accuser.

    1. The term was coined to mean Jews specifically. This means that even an attack on a non-Semitic Jew (convert etc) falls under the category of “anti-Semitic” anyway.

    2. The term “Semite”, like the similarly abused/misused term “Aryan” was originally a linguistic term with no racial overtones referring to a group of related Afro-Asian languages (Hebrew, Aramaic, Arabic, Amharic etc).

    3. All DNA studies show that Ashkenazi Jews are in fact descendants of Middle-Easterners. The closest relatives of Ashkenazi Jews according to DNA tests are Sephardic Jews and the Jews of Yemen. The closest relatives of Jews, in turn, are Kurds who like Jews are classified as northern-Semites. Palestinians are the next closest relatives being more closely related to Jews than to other Arabs.
    4. Semites, like Indians, are “Caucasians” which is a racial term used to define skull shape. Again, “bosdikeroger” show’s his ignorance and I hate to say it, stupidity in confusing a vague notion of “whiteness” with a scientific term such as “Caucasian”
    5. Arabs used to be lighter in ancient times than they are today. Mohammed had ginger hair (which is why religious Muslims dye their beards red). The Muslim slave trade resulted in today’s Arabs having are up to 20% sub-Saharan African DNA making them darker, which those closest to Africa; Egypt, Arabia , showing the greatest mixing. The assumption that if Jews are lightly pigmented they’re not real Semites is wrong. Many Semitic peoples without African admixture are lightly pigmented eg Syrians (look at Bashir Al-Asads blue eyes), Kurds; often blue eyed blondes, and Jews; who have the lowest amount of admixture with indo-Europeans of any group so far studied in Europe eg Jews married amongst themselves after an initial period of intermarriage between Male Jewish Middle-Eastern merchants and Germanic and Slavic women in ancient times. Besides African Jews; Lemba, Ethiopians etc no Jewish groups show sub-Saharan African DNA except Yemeni Jews who are 7% “black African” DNA on average (Yemeni Muslims 20%).

    Semitic languages run the gamut of the “white” north; Jews, Kurds, Syrians, Lebanese, to the “mixed” middle; Yemenis, Saudis, Ethiopians, to the “black” south; Ethiopians etc.

    April 10, 2006

    Nazi Germans responding to the pleas of Palestinian Arabs planned to open up a “branch” of the Holocaust in the Land of Israel and exterminate the half-a-million Jews then living in the land in line with Adolph Hitler’s plan to rid mankind of its “Jewish problem.”

    PA Religious Official Publicly Calls for Genocide of Jews
    PA’s principal religious leader presents the killing of Jews by Muslims as a religious Islamic goal.
    Elad Benari
    1/16/2011

    The best post i saw about this.
    There have been many PA religious and other officials who have openly called for the genocide of the Jews. Jews have been called aids, cancer, apes and pigs by these wicked hatemongers. Poll after poll over the years have shown many Palestinian Arabs support mass murder of Jews in suicide bombings,shootings,and other terror attacks. It’s just so obvious what these evil people really want. The destruction of Israel, and the genocide of it’s Jewish citizens.

  22. Jenny should understand one thing. The Palestinians are an invented people as Gingrich brilliantly said.
    This video shows it.
