So Amnesty International is standing by Moazzam Begg and Cageprisoners.
Let’s have a look at a new article by Yvonne Ridley, published on Cageprisoners’ website. It provides another insight into the mentality of the Islamist outfit. Ridley is Cageprisoners’ patron, as well as a Hamas funder and a presenter for Press TV, the English language voice of the Tehran regime.
The topic is the rioters at last winter’s anti-Israel and pro-Hamas demonstrations in London. Who should be blamed for criminals being brought to book? That’s easy:
For too long have we allowed the long, poisonous tentacles of Zionism and Islamaphobia to twist and weave their way into British courts. Ordinary, law-abiding citizens of faith and no faith have had enough of seeing our courtrooms hijacked by those who believe some are more equal than others when it comes to freedoms and liberties.
The next few weeks and months are going to be interesting, as groups led by the Stop the War Coalition demand justice in the courts and we will get justice in English courts because more and more people are beginning to sit up and take notice. There has already been a fair and just ruling over the Border in Scotland which shows there’s no place for Zionist meddling in the judiciary. [This is a reference to charges against the self-styled Scottish Palestine Solidarity campaign for disrupting a Jerusalem Quartet concert in Edinburgh being dropped.]
Now that the evils of Zionism have been kicked out of Scotland let’s see that it is wiped out of the English courts as well. There is no room for Zionist influences in our legal system just as there is no room for Islamaphobia or racism.
The article was also published by Middle East Monitor, the Israel hatred site run by Daud Abdullah, deputy secretary general of the Muslim Council of Britain, and Ibrahim Hewitt, the chairman of Interpal, a charity that serves Hamas.
Take out the “Islamophobia” references and this is language that one would expect to find on a BNP, KKK or neo-Nazi website.
Yet Amnesty has chosen to maintain its “relationship” with Cageprisoners, even at the price of parting company with Gita Sahgal, one of its own senior employees.
Woe is Amnesty.
