IDEOLOGY TRUMPS COMMONS SENSE
How much more similar nonsense are we going to take from the Left? While the Belgian Flemish Vlaams Belang and the Swedish Democrats are wrongly maligned by the main stream media as “fascists”, the Left frolics with the most undemocratic, intolerant and unsavory voices in western society. These ministers should get the boot from government, but they hail from the moronic Left, so all is forgiven! KGS
NOTE: The article goes on to state that they didn’t appear on the stage together, but that doesn’t exonerate them, to give credibility to a conference that invites the likes of Azad Ali, is an offense that deserves a sacking.
Terrorist loving Azad Ali speaking at a Lefty event
Two Cabinet Ministers are facing questions over their judgment after appearing at the same event as a Muslim activist who once suggested that the killing of British troops in Iraq was justified.
Azad Ali spoke at yesterday’s Progressive London conference, which was also attended by Equalities Minister Harriet Harman and Energy Secretary Ed Miliband.
Mr Ali, a Treasury civil servant, was suspended from his job last year after The Mail on Sunday revealed a series of controversial comments on his personal website, including one in which he praised Abdullah Azzam, Osama Bin Laden’s mentor.
He described the late Azzam as one of the ‘few Muslims who promote the understanding of the term Jihad in its comprehensive glory’.
He then quoted Azzam’s son as saying: ‘If I saw an American or British man wearing a soldier’s uniform inside Iraq I would kill him because that is my obligation. If I saw the same soldier in Jordan I wouldn’t touch him. In Iraq he is a fighter and an occupier – here he is not. I respect this as the main instruction in my religion for Jihad.’
Last week, Mr Ali lost an attempt to sue The Mail on Sunday over its article, which was published in January last year. Mr Justice Eady said Mr Ali ‘was indeed . . . taking the position that the killing of American and British troops in Iraq would be justified’. The judge added that Mr Ali’s case was bound to fail and had about it ‘an absence of reality’.
But at yesterday’s conference, organised by former London Mayor Ken Livingstone, Mr Ali defended Hamas and Hezbollah, which have been condemned by some Western countries as terrorist organisations.
Mr Ali took part in an event called There Is No Progressive Imperialism, during which the panel was asked by a Lebanese man to comment on Hezbollah, which he accused of ‘actively stopping the progress of [Lebanon]’.
Mr Ali responded: ‘If you ask the people of Lebanon, Hamas are known as people who build. Hamas provide an unbelievable amount of social services, as do Hezbollah, medical services and everything. These are the things that people are fighting – this is the imperial mindset, the colonial mindset.’
NOTE: This is how Hamas “builds its society, through barbaric acts like tossing those with whom they disagree with from the tops of tall buildings. Also, the Tundra Tabloids has a personal friend who is a Lebanese Christian Arab, that was tortured (real torture) by the Hezbollah. So don’t give me any bull about the Hezbollah (like Hamas), which is a mafia run organization that controls every aspect of society under their domain….as being a provider of “social services”. They own everything. Only ignorant people and stooge Lefty supporters say otherwise.
