Baroness Cox is Pro Israel and Anti Islam

 by Laura Stuart

Friday, March 30th, 2012

Laura StuartBeing a rabidly pro Israel supporter appears to necessitate being vehemently anti Islam. Baroness Cox is an interesting case in point. Recently Baroness Cox made the news in both the Sun and the Mail with some very incendiary comments about Islam which were clarified later on Islamophobia watch as to have actually not being the following:-
Brutal punishments like whipping and stoning could become widespread in Britain if Islamic Sharia law is allowed to thrive, a member of the House of Lords has warned. 
With David Horowitz fellow Geert Wilders Fan



This was said to be part of a speech in the House of Lords at a symposium called ‘Islamist Resurgence: Shari’a and Freedom‘ held by the Christian Broadcasting Council of which Baroness Cox is the vice president. At this particular symposium Baroness Cox was asked to speak because of the bill that she has written called the Arbitration and Mediation Services Equality Bill which seeks to redress what she sees as problems of equality in the Shariah arbitration and mediation services provided by the Shariah councils in the U.K. The Shariah councils help to provide solutions acceptable to Muslims usually on family issues and divorce and their rulings are not legally binding. Just how Baroness Cox envisages the great leap from providing marital and family mediation to enforcing whipping and stoning in the U.K. only becomes possible to understand when you start to search who Baroness Cox’s friends and associates are.

A search into what Baroness Cox represents tells us that she is very pro Israel in fact she is one of the co founders of “One Jerusalem” you can read here about what they call “The Global Assualt on Jerusalem

As Jewish Jerusalem is under attack from people who have declared their intention to annihilate the Jewish nation we need to redouble our defense of the Holy City.

This is the kind of inflamatory language which would ensure that peaceful participants in the “Global March to Jerusalem” get shot by the Israeli Occupation Forces.
Also from One Jerusalem website is

OUTRAGEOUS: Obama Administration Refuses to State Jerusalem is the Capital of Israel

What might Baroness Cox wear under the Parliamentary Robes?
Indeed Tel Aviv is the capital of the State of Israel as agreed by all governments.I wonder if Baroness Cox knows any of the reported abuses of Christian clergy that take place in Jerusalem? Read about the regular spitting at Christian Clergy by Jews here. Does Baroness Cox appreciate how a Muslim family have been the keyholders to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem? Read the story of Christian Muslim co-0peration here .
Another organisation of which Baroness is vice president of is the “Jerusalem Summit” and we can see exactly what they stand for with this extract from their mission statement
We see Radical Islam as the third onslaught of Totalitarian Evil on the free mankind in the last 100 years. The first two were Fascism and Communism. The free world managed to defeat them by uniting, working out a joint strategy, and mastering resolve to fight and prevail. Now, too, is the time to unite and lay out a coherent moral and political strategy in that crucial fight.

Read the full Islamophobic mission statement here. Even more hair and eyebrow raising is this article which suggests the issue of the” Palestinian problem” might be resolved by giving each Palestinian family $100,000 to go away

This is a problem that can conceivably be dealt with by means of money — specifically generous sums paid to the Palestinians to relocate and resettle elsewhere in the Arab/Moslem world.

The reason for offering this solution

BUT EVEN IF ONE is convinced that the Palestinians are undeserving of a state, the question still remains as to whether they are genuinely desirous of one.

When you are sitting down and have a damp cloth ready for your forehead read the whole article here.

Baroness Cox seems to support ethnic cleansing
This was all information which I found just spending a hour or so searching exactly what Baroness Cox is all about. There is so much more I could say about her but really what I seek to understand is why does being Pro Israel mean you have to be anti Islam? Could it be because Israel knows that the only real threat to it’s existence comes from Muslims? I myself do not believe that there is any political solution to the problem of Israel and its endless need for wars in the region and its ethnic cleansing of the indigenous people. The western governments, the United Nations etc have all proved over the last 60 years that they are not willing or able to bring about a solution to the problem of the occupation of Palestinian land. The best hope in my opinion lies with the Muslims remembering their obligation towards their brothers and sisters under oppression. The borders that separate Muslims are all man made, we are one Ummah and the land that is Palestine should be returned to its rightful owners.
وَكَتَبْنَا عَلَيْهِمْ فِيهَا أَنَّ النَّفْسَ بِالنَّفْسِ وَالْعَيْنَ بِالْعَيْنِ وَالْأَنفَ بِالْأَنفِ وَالْأُذُنَ بِالْأُذُنِ وَالسِّنَّ بِالسِّنِّ وَالْجُرُوحَ قِصَاصٌ ۚ فَمَن تَصَدَّقَ بِهِ فَهُوَ كَفَّارَةٌ لَّهُ ۚ وَمَن لَّمْ يَحْكُم بِمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّـهُ فَأُولَـٰئِكَ هُمُ الظَّالِمُونَ ﴿٤٥
And We ordained for them therein a life for a life, an eye for an eye, a nose for a nose, an ear for an ear, a tooth for a tooth, and for wounds is legal retribution. But whoever gives [up his right as] charity, it is an expiation for him. And whoever does not judge by what Allah has revealed – then it is those who are the wrongdoers.

US Report: KSA Seeks to Funnel Arms to Syria’s Rebels via Jordan

Local Editor

The US famous daily, “Wall Street Journal”, unveiled Saturday that “Saudi Arabia has pressed Jordan to open its border with Syria to allow weapons to reach armed groups fighting Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s regime.”

However, officials from both countries warned that “this move could buoy Syria’s opposition and harden the conflict in the country and across the region.”

“In a March 12 meeting in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah asked his Jordanian counterpart to permit weapons shipments into Syria in exchange for economic assistance to Jordan,” these officials said adding that “Jordan hasn’t yet agreed.”

The report further expressed fear that “arming the opposition could escalate prospects for a broader regional conflict.”

“In Baghdad, Iraq’s Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki warned that arming the Syrian opposition could invite a repeat of the insurgency and sectarian strife that consumed Iraq for years after the 2003 US-led invasion,” The WSJ reported
“It will lead to regional and global proxy wars in the Syrian arena,” Maliki said.

Despite all warns, the paper pointed out that “Jordanian officials said they are unlikely to resist Saudi pressure for long.”

“We are a non-interventionist country. But if it becomes force majeure, you have to join-this is the story of Jordan,” said a top Jordanian official.

According to the newspaper, “Jordan remains nervous about arming the rebels, worried that a larger conflict in Syria could engulf the region.”

“Adding to these concerns are beliefs by several governments that extremist groups such as al-Qaeda are now actively fighting against al-Assad’s government, and that they may have been behind bombings in Damascus and Aleppo, Syria’s two largest cities,” the paper asserted.

In parallel, a Jordanian official said “you have to be very careful who you arm and don’t arm. We don’t quite know who this opposition is.”

The paper also noted to the economic crisis Jordan is suffering due to Syria’s crisis.

“The Syrian crisis is already affecting Jordan’s economy. Before the conflict, about 70% of Jordan’s imports and about 25% of its exports were routed through Syria, according to the country’s Transport Ministry, which didn’t provide dollar figures. Now those imports and exports have fallen to virtually zero,” the ministry said.

‘We need a Frankenstein insurgency to defeat Assad!’

Via FLC

“… So there won’t be an intervention or, in all likelihood, a diplomatic deus ex machina. What’s in between those two extremes? Last week, the Obama administration announced that, along with Turkey, it would ship communications equipment and other “nonlethal” gear to armed rebels inside Syria. (Saudi Arabia and Qatar have already begun to supply the rebels with weapons.) This is an important shift in policy, since the equipment would permit rebels militias to securely communicate with one another. Such gear may be nonlethal, but it’s still military. How far is the White House prepared to go in helping the Free Syrian Army, as the military opposition calls itself? For the moment, it seems, not much further……………(Giving the rebels satellite phones is, of course, one way to do just that.) And then what? White House officials have not wanted to say what they would do once the opposition begins to present a united front — perhaps in part because they don’t know. But reports that the rebels are literally running out of bullets argue that if outsiders don’t act fast, there will be no insurgency to support — at which point, Assad will be able to crush his opponents with impunity.

One person I spoke to who does have a plan is a former government official with extensive experience in Syria. The opposition, he argues, needs not just weapons but “a comprehensive military and civilian battle plan” to defeat Assad. He envisions a multilateral effort in which the United States would provide not just communications technology but real-time military intelligence to help the rebels respond to government troop movements. Gulf states would provide the bulk of the weapons and funds; the Jordanians might provide special forces to work closely with the militia; Turkey would provide the staging ground itself as well as other forms of aid; and diplomats would give strategic guidance to the SNC.

Such an effort would look less like the bombing campaign in Libya and more like, well, the CIA-sponsored campaign to arm and train the mujahideen who fought the Soviets in Afghanistan. This is, of course, not a terribly encouraging analogy, since yesterday’s anti-Soviet warriors became today’s anti-American Taliban. We need no better reminder of the unintended consequences of supporting foreign insurgencies. But he did not shy away from the comparison. “We need to do what we did under Reagan,” he said, “which is to actively support these insurgencies.” But, he adds, we need to know who we are working with, to set out clear standards of behavior (LOL) and to condition our help on maintaining those standards — as we did not do in Afghanistan. And we need to be careful that the international effort doesn’t exacerbate the problem: The Saudis, for example, are likely to bring an overtly sectarian agenda to Syria. The effort would be better off with a bigger role for the Turks, and a smaller one for the Saudis.

The neo-mujahideen strategy has plenty of problems — beyond the possibility of a Frankenstein insurgency…… there are no good solutions; only less bad ones. And Assad’s evident willingness to kill his opponents, and his opponents’ willingness to keep fighting, compels outsiders to urgently devise and implement a least-bad solution rather than wait for the opposition to demonstrate that it deserves support….”

Global March to Jerusalem Celebrates Land Day at Lebanese-Palestinian Borders

Land Day Memorial, Sakhnin, Galilee

Land Day and Global March to Jerusalem ceremonies were launched Friday in Lebanon, after participants gathered at Beaufort Fortress in the Southern Lebanese village of Arnon, near the borders with Palestine.

Global March to Jerusalem, Beaufort Fortress; March 30, 2012Friday prayers at the scene were followed by the ceremony activities, starting with the arrival of international delegations coming from Arab and foreign countries to participate in the event, Al-Manar Website correspondent Mohammad Alloush reported.
Waving Palestinian flags and singing Palestinian national songs, participants chanted slogans of death to Israel and support for the Palestinian cause, and lifted a large banner reading “Global March to Jerusalem, the world’s people want to liberate Jerusalem.”
The demonstrators delivered speeches on the occasion stressing that the issue of Palestine will remain the nation’s first cause of priority.

Intensive masses from Asian countries of India, Malaysia, Indonesia, Azerbaijan and many other states attended the march, alongside Arabs, Iranians and Turks activists. The most prominent were the anti-Zionist rabbis of “Neturei Karta”.
The Lebanese army conducted intense security checks and barbed wires had been installed around the gathering courtyard.

Global March to Jerusalem, Beaufort Fortress; March 30, 2012Similar protests were held in the West Bank and Gaza. While organizers said the events would be nonviolent, Zionist army and police were girding for trouble after similar demonstrations last year turned deadly.
Thousands of Palestinian demonstrators clashed with Zionist troops at a West Bank checkpoint of Qalqiliya Friday as hundreds more gathered by Jerusalem’s Old City to mark Land Day.
Global March to Jerusalem, West Bank demonstrators commemorating the Land DayTensions were high at the Qalandia checkpoint, just north of Jerusalem, as a handful of Palestinian youths hurled rocks and set tires alight, with Israeli troops firing a barrage of teargas, rubber bullets and stun grenades against the protest.
Troops also fired a foul-smelling liquid called “skunk” into the crowd, an Agence France Presse correspondent said. By 1100 GMT, around 30 people had been treated for teargas inhalation, Palestinian medics said.
At least a dozen rallies were held across the occupied territories, AFP reported.
In annexed Arab east Jerusalem, around 400 demonstrators waving huge Palestinian flags gathered outside the Old City near Damascus Gate.

However, another hundred or so people gathered by Lion’s Gate, where Zionist police arrested four people, and another two were treated by medics after being injured by police batons, an AFP correspondent said.

The main Land Day march took place in the Arab ‘Israeli’ town of Deir Hanna in Galilee, with another march scheduled in the southern Negev desert.

In anticipation of mass protests, the Zionist occupation army imposed a 24-hour closure on the occupied territories late on Thursday, barring Palestinians from entering the entity, excepted for humanitarian reasons or medical emergencies.

Land Day Clashes: Youth Martyred, 130 Injured Including MP Barghouti

A Gaza youth was martyred and at least five more people seriously injured, including a journalist, at the Erez checkpoint between “Israel” and Gaza, as security forces are clashing with protesting Palestinians.

RT’s correspondent also reported that the Palestinian legislator Mustafa Barghouti was rushed to hospital and is in serious condition after being hit in the head by an “Israeli” tear gas canister at Qalandia checkpoint in West Bank.
“Ambulances are racing to and from the scene,” the agency added.

The standoff between the “Israeli” army and Palestinians continues at various checkpoints, with occasional bursts of tear gas being fired at protesters. “Israeli” forces were using water cannons and rubber bullets.

At least 130 people have reportedly been wounded throughout the West Bank so far, according to medical sources. Reports also suggest that four medics were struck with rubber bullets.

Moreover, two Palestinians have been injured as “Israeli” forces were carrying out mass arrests in al-Quds, particularly around Damascus gate in the old city.

The Palestinian rallies, joined by international human rights activists, are part of an international campaign named Global March on al-Quds, a peaceful international movement that also condemns the “Israeli” occupation of the holy city.

Huge Victory for the Anti War Respect Party – Galloway Wins Bradford West Seat

 

Laura StuartA huge win for George Galloway in Bradford West yesterday shows voters total frustration with mainstream parties and their pro war policies. George Galloway and the Respect party stands for
The Respect Party is opposed to war, privatisation and unemployment. The Respect Party stands for peace, publicly owned services and a decent future for all
George Galloway’s Victory in Bradford West
 Exactly what this country needs is a change from the two main parties who dominate politics. It is no democracy that we have because we can only vote for Conservative or Labour and anything else is a throwaway vote. Labour left behind its roots of representing the working classes when Tony Blair came into power and since then it’s been War War War with both Labour and Conservative with nothing to distinguish between them.
 
Here is an excerpt of a leaflet from the Respect Party Campaign “The Drumbeats of War Are Getting Louder
The drumbeats for war with Iran are getting louder, and the escalating provocations by Western capitals are developing a logic of their own. It admits of no alternative and points in only one direction – towardsmilitary conflict. Or to put itmore accurately, towards openmilitary conflict. The head of Britain’s MI6 has already called for covert military operations in Iran – which are, of course, an act of war – and they have been taking place. So are the drone overflights, which are also legally an act of aggression.
Exactly ! This is exactly the problem, the British public protested in hundreds of thousands against the war in Iraq yet the government did not listen, and all of the ensuing deaths based on lies and the deaths continue every day still in Iraq.
 
Every voter needs to send a message to the government by not voting at all because none of the main parties represent the will or aspirations of the British people. We need to say NO to 80% of Conservative M.P.s being “Friends of Israel” and the continous aggression in the Middle East that such friendship requires.
 

Here are the results of the Bradford West by election
The full result (with vote share and change since 2010 in brackets):
George Galloway (Respect) 18,341 (55.89%, +52.83%)
Imran Hussain (Lab) 8,201 (24.99%, -20.36%)
Jackie Whiteley (C) 2,746 (8.37%, -22.78%)
Jeanette Sunderland (LD) 1,505 (4.59%, -7.08%)
Sonja McNally (UKIP) 1,085 (3.31%, +1.31%)
Dawud Islam (Green) 481 (1.47%, -0.85%)
Neil Craig (D Nats) 344 (1.05%)
Howling Laud Hope (Loony) 111 (0.34%)

This decisive victory shows that Muslims will not vote for a candidate just because he is a Muslim if he does not represent the voters interests. The Muslim candidates who stood for the Bradford West seat lost resoundingly. Muslims will not vote like sheep for a candidate who follows the party line of endless war whatever his religion is, rather they will vote for the person who is saying what they want to hear. Any candidate if they be Muslim or not who represents Conservative or Labour is part of a corrupt war making machine and at best they can only offer to throw a few pennies in the voters way by adjusting taxation etc but in reality we are in deep recession and the millions spent on war would be put to better use building up Britain again not destroying someone elses country.

وَأَلْقَيْنَا بَيْنَهُمُ الْعَدَاوَةَ وَالْبَغْضَاءَ إِلَىٰ يَوْمِ الْقِيَامَةِ ۚ كُلَّمَا أَوْقَدُوا نَارًا لِّلْحَرْبِ أَطْفَأَهَا اللَّـهُ ۚوَيَسْعَوْنَ فِي الْأَرْضِ فَسَادًا ۚ وَاللَّـهُ لَا يُحِبُّ الْمُفْسِدِينَ ﴿٦٤

Surat al Maidah 5-64

And We have cast among them animosity and hatred until the Day of Resurrection. Every time they kindled the fire of war , Allah extinguished it. And they strive throughout the land [causing] corruption, and Allah does not like corrupters.

Brigadier General Htait considered that President Bashar Al-Assad visit to Baba Amr reflect the success of Syria in absorbing the plot targeting Syria, adding that the plot fell and Syria won and risks have receded.
This is a Declaration of military victory.
Assad allowed himself to be move by road from Damascus to Homs (200 KMs).  
In terms of economic and political future Assad wanted Baba Amr to be Syria’s gateway to workshop reconstruction according to specific time plan, added Htait, Assad’s speech on reconstruction is an important indication that the military battle is over. Politically, Htait considered Assad’s statement “Give the construction time plan and let people watch a very important development in Syria, urging people to monitor the authority
The Visit delivered three messages to Syrians:
“The visit renewed the Covenant and promise to embrace the system of correctional movement”. Assad said to citizens who stayed with the system “you were with me and I am with you and amongst you, together we stay and I’m here now”

Htait said that the appointment of Kofi Annan, the UN-Arab Envoy to Syria Secretary-General confirms Syria success in imposing its peaceful solution under the leadership of President Al-Assad, leaving a face-saving window for the Americans and Europeans.
The visit is a message to (Iran, Russia and China) that victorious Syria, after the fall of the plot, shall maintain its strategic position as prior to the. “This will enhance the multi-polar new world order born from the womb of Syria.
