David Ward MP and MPACUK

Taken from Marc’s Words

I started corresponding with David Ward MP by email, I thought maybe I could persuade him to talk to me about what it was he was trying to say when he alienated just about every Jew in England on Holocaust Memorial Day and during his rather clumsy attempts to explain himself afterwards.

The correspondence didn’t go anywhere it ended with him basically implying to me that rather than talk to him I should be campaigning against Israel on my own.

Fine, it was a longshot anyway, I let it go.

Then I got an email from his constituency assistant, Raza Nadim essentially telling me what I already knew, that the MP was simply too busy to talk to me. But I recognised the name Raza Nadim from somewhere and googled him, at which point I found a wealth of material about him. Mainly in the role of an MPACUK spokesman.

Here he is talking about the how Aafia Siddiqui, the woman named as an al Qaeda courier and currently serving 86 years for attempted murder of US forces in Afghanistan as well as assault is innocent. When she was arrested she had a list of targets in New York on her as well as well as bomb making information and chemicals.

Naturally according to Raza this is a put up job and it’s the duty of all Muslims to work to make her free.

So I emailed Raza asking him a bunch of questions about this but he didn’t reply, I emailed Ward and he didn’t reply either, I then called the constituency office, Raza was on “annual leave”, Ward was nowhere to be found.

It’s worth remembering a couple of things about MPACUK:

MPACUK is best known for the fact that co-founder Asghar Bukhari donated money to Holocaust denier David Irving and encouraged others to do so.

Raza Nadim called Zionists “the most vile animals to walk the earth” which is perfectly in line with regular MPACUK discourse.

MPACUK is one of only 5 groups to be banned from University campuses by the National Union of Students under their No Platform for Fascism and Racism policy. They’re on a very short list with distinguished organisations such as the BNP and Al Muhajiroun.

It would appear that Mr Nadim is still campaigning for MPACUK even while employed by the office of David Ward, his Facebook page, where he goes by the name ‘Raza OneFree-Ummah’ is almost entirely dedicated to the group.

Here’s a pic of what it looked like before he slithered off to the netherworld of Facebook:

He also lists himself as an MPACUK spokesman on Facebook even while working at David Ward MP’s office.

As Mike Gapes, MP for Ilford South told me last night “this tells you all you need to know about the judgment of David Ward and the Liberal Democrats.”

I’m sure Raza will be back at work on Monday and it will be business as usual for both of them.
