Come Dine With … Racists and Mass Murderers

Earlier this week, you could have seen a familiar face on the Channel 4 “fly on the wall” cooking show, Come Dine With Me: Pippa Bartolotti.

Here’s Channel 4’s blurb:

It’s not easy being green – but Pippa managed, with her vegetable patch starter ofspicy lettuce soup.

Who needs chicken in a curry when you can have egg? Pippa braved her meat-loving guests with her main of egg rogan josh.

The quirky hostess showed her nutty side in dessert, summer fruit fool with hazelnut meringues.

Unfortunately, Pippa Bartolotti’s “nutty side” is far from benign. The former prospective parliamentary candidate for the Green Party has a particular fondness for genocidal racist political movements and has a history of making disturbing public statements.

It was Pippa Bartolotti who persuaded aged Labour MP, Paul Flynn, to complain that the United Kingdom had appointed a Jew as ambassador to Israel. Paul Flynn MP later apologised.

Pippa Bartolotti was a member of the pro-Hamas Viva Palestina, and travelled with it to Syria where she was hosted by the regime which is now slaughtering thousands of Syrians. While there, she had herself photographed  waving the flag of the Syrian Social Nationalist Party. Its symbol is reminiscent of the Nazi Swastika – deliberately so.  Here’s a little background on the SSNP. Here’s some more.

While on this convoy, she told Press TV – the Islamic Republic of Iran’s propaganda station:

“It’s only the people that are going to make a difference because the governments are pathetically weak. They’re in the pockets of Big Money and Big Money supports Israel”.

When Pippa Bartolotti made it to Gaza, she met with Ismail Haniyeh and Mahmoud al-Zahar.

Zahar is of course the man who said Jewish children around the world should be murdered to avenge Israel’s attack on Hamas in the Gaza war.

“They have legitimised the murder of their own children by killing the children of Palestine,” Mahmoud Zahar said in a televised broadcast recorded at a secret location. “They have legitimised the killing of their people all over the world by killing our people.”

Not that any of this troubles Bartolotti. This is from her blog:

Mahmoud al Zahar was clearly a knowledgeable man, well educated and by the nature of his knowledge, anti Jew. It seemed to me that he no longer separated Zionism from the ordinary Jew, but living under siege as he did with warplanes and warships continually threatening his people, killing his children and destroying his homes one could hardly blame him.

What a disgusting woman she is.
