Andy Newman Is Ashamed That He Is Promoting A Hamas Fundraiser

NB: Since writing this post, Andy Newman has made it clear that he did not delete the information below. Rather, an unnamed editor of Socialist Unity performed the deletions. On that understanding, and for the benefit of its readers, the information is being reposted to Socialist Unity

UPDATE: Andy Newman, or his co-posters, are deleting my comments again.

I’m guessing that it is not Andy, but rather the balding male model, John Wight. They’re embarrassed and ashamed because of the nature of the organisation that they’re promoting.

Yes, it is hard to believe.

However, it is the only explanation I can think of for his deletion of the following information. Information that I would have thought would have been of value to his readers, who are deciding whether or not to give money to the Hamas fundraiser, Viva Palestina.

Here is some information that Andy has deleted.

First, “The Friendly Lefty” doubted that Hamas was antisemitic:

Aid relief for a besieged population, most certainly anti-semitic. Please stop belittling anti-Jewish racism David. And troll off.

I thought The Friendly Lefty might helpfully read these extracts from the Hamas Covenant:

The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews

Also this:

They strived to amass great and substantive material wealth which they devoted to the realisation of their dream. With their money, they took control of the world media, news agencies, the press, publishing houses, broadcasting stations, and others. With their money they stirred revolutions in various parts of the world with the purpose of achieving their interests and reaping the fruit therein. They were behind the French Revolution, the Communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there. With their money they formed secret societies, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world for the purpose of sabotaging societies and achieving Zionist interests.

But no.

Apparently, Andy Newman doesn’t want The Friendly Lefty to know that Hamas is a genocidal antisemitic party.

Dirty Red Bandana doubts the veracity of the translation:

If you can lie about a translation, what else are you lying about? Why would you make up a translation to twist a political point?

David, what is your interest in lying like this?

The translation of the Hamas Covenant comes from Yale University. And I’m not sure what Dirty Red Bandana’s point is. Is s/he saying that s/he oppose giving money to Hamas if the translation is accurate? Or that s/he’d be happy to fund Hamas, whether or not it is correct?

Andy doesn’t want his readers to know about Viva Palestina trustee, Sabah al Mukhtar, who says (at 7:50):

At one time or another there was this talk of the Protocol of Zion and everybody said that it was a put-up job, it’s not true, it is not factual, all sorts of accusations of this book. But at the end of the day, let’s assume they are all correct, that this is really not a real book and it was not the Protocols of Zion. This is an incredible insight, some hundred years ago, to show what the position nowadays. The control over the media, the education, the law, the medicine.

Why wouldn’t he want his readers to know that?

Andy doesn’t want his readers to see these pictures of Gaza, last week:


Inexplicably, Andy Newman also doesn’t want his readers to see this picture showing George Galloway handing over a wodge of cash to Hamas official Ziad al-Zaza:

Neither does he want them to see this video:

This is all very strange.

I mean, if you’re going to fund a genocidal antisemitic party, at least have the guts to be out and proud about it.

Enjoy the fun and games here.
