Everything Europe holds holy… fake gas-chambers…Aids-spreading fagots [sic] – Dyab Abou Jahjah
the cult of the Holocaust and Jew-worshiping [is Europe’s] alternative religion – Dyab About Jahjah
Muslims cannot express…their disgust from [sic] homosexuality...and clearly state that they believe it’s a sickness.. without being persecuted as homophobic – Dyab Abou Jahjah
Examining Jeremy Corbyn’s association with anti-Semites is unpleasant, but necessary. It is quite stunning that the BBC refuses to ask the favourite for Leader of the UK Opposition any difficult questions about the racists he’s supported. For example, ‘Did you donate to the anti-semite Paul Eisen’s DYR organisation?‘ Not ‘do you condemn antisemitism,’ but the specific question: Did you donate to this racist?’
Corbyn is not exactly refusing to answer; the BBC is obligingly just not asking him. I wonder how it would fly if Boris Johnson were found to have given money to Nick Griffin, attended his rallies, called the English Defence League his “friends,” and then added airily ‘but I hate racism and I’m just opening a dialogue?’
It wouldn’t work and rightly not. But because the racism in this case is directed at Jews, the BBC is washing its hands.
In 2009 Dyab Abou Jahjah was invited as Jeremy Corbyn MP’s special guest to Parliament. He spoke in the Grand Committee Room, as the Director of International Parliamentarians for Palestine. Next, as a guest of Stop the War Coalition, Corbyn hosted him at a public meeting where they spoke together (Entry: £20).
Abou JahJah, who a few days ago was calling himself Corbyn’s “friend”, was excluded by the Home Secretary a few days later. But Corbyn most definitely invited him to Parliament personally, and organised with him to speak for Stop the War – two separate events. So this is more than ‘sharing a platform.’ This is ‘giving a platform’ and ‘organizing multiple events for’ a man who is a sickening racist, a vicious homophobe, and who glories in the deaths of British soldiers.
In 2006 Abou Jahjah’s antisemitism boiled into the open, as did his homophobia. He published an astonishing article entitled ‘Walking the Thin Line.’
Can’t a bigot freely express disgust at homosexuality without being called homophobic?**
Muslims and other religious people can not express their disgust from homosexuality and clearly state that they believe it’s a sickness and a deviation without being persecuted for being homophobic
Holocaust denial and revisionism:
People in Europe are not allowed to do a free historical examination of the Second World War and the holocaust and freely express an opinion on it that is different than the dominating dogmatic line. Any attempt to have deviant historical examination of the holocaust will earn you the title of revisionist, anti-Semite
‘Holocaust cult and Jew-worshipping’
Europe had made of political correctness and the cult of the Holocaust and Jew-worshiping its alternative religion [sic]
And Dyab Abou Jahjah wants to mock everything Europe holds holy, such as ‘Aids-spreading fagots [sic]’ and ‘hoax gas chambers’
To illustrate every wall with graffiti making fun of everything Europe holds as holy: dancing rabbis on the carcasses of Palestinian children, hoax gas-chambers built in Hollywood in 1946 with Steven Spielberg’s approval stamp, and Aids spreading fagots.
Below: Dyad Abou Jahjah speaking with Jeremy Corbyn, as Corbyn’s guest. Now, I don’t suppose that the vicious left, having been shown how deep and long Corbyn’s promotion of anti-semites has gone, will care about this particularly. It’s absolutely clear to me that they are prepared to any racism or backing for racists and forgo asking questions like ‘Did you donate money to Paul Eisen’ as long as the candidate is ultra-left. But that doesn’t change the need to report on it and to speak truth to power. The vicious racist statements Abou Jahjah wrote were long public knowledge when Corbyn invited him into our Parliament, as was his statement that ‘I consider every dead British soldier to be a victory.’
In 2010, the Jerusalem Post asked Corbyn if he had severed links with his ‘friend’ Abou Jahjah. He did not say he had. Rather, he responded that he did not maintain links with anybody he thought was a racist. That means Corbyn thinks saying ‘the cult of the Holocaust and Jew-worshiping’ is not racist. July 23 and July 30 Dahdah posts Facebook and Twitter support for Corbyn, calling him his friend. I’d like to think the BBC, the Guardian and the left-wing media will ask Corbyn why he would invite somebody who wrote such a blog in 2006 into our Parliament as his guest, or would speak with him at a Stop the War event, or who would give his backing to an ‘International Parliamentarians’ group that had this vile racist and homophobe as its international director.
But I doubt it. Which goes to show that for the wider Labour movement, who are happy to elect as leader somebody who has backed racists like this, racism is bad, unless it is aimed at Jews, in which case: who cares! Corbynmania!
* Yes, I am perfectly well aware that you can criticize Israeli policy without being antisemitic. This has nothing whatsoever to do with Israel, and everything to do with gay people and Jewish people.
** For those following my Tim Hunt reporting, this line is “irony,” meaning humour is being used to negate the sentiment ostensibly expressed, by mocking it.
