Government policies devaluing and demoralising the men and women of the Defence Forces – Aengus O Snodaigh TD (@aosnodaigh) · Twitter

How Ken Livingstone left Labour in turmoil after claiming Hitler backed moving Jews to Israel



When Jeremy Corbyn finally suspended Naz Shah, a Labour MP, for anti-Semitic comments in April last year he had hoped to draw a line under the furore engulfing his party.

By 9.30 on the following morning, however, his friend and close ally Ken Livingstone had single-handedly reignited the row after deciding to mount an extraordinary defence of Ms Shah live on BBC Radio London.

Mr Livingstone, who sits on Labour's National Executive Committee and is co-chairman of the party's defence review, claimed that Ms Shah's suggestion that Israel should be "relocated" to the US was not anti-Semitic. - Labour suspends Ken Livingstone for another year over Hitler comments

Ken Livingstone has blamed the Jewish Chronicle newspaper for the damage done to the Labour Party after he suggested Adolf Hitler had supported Zionism.

The former mayor of London will today discover whether he will be expelled from Labour for his comments.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme this morning, Livingstone said the Jewish Chronicle was guilty of “printing a lie” about what he said.

“What caused offence were those people who opened the pages of the Jewish Chronicle and saw the claim I said Hitler was a Zionist, the claim I said Jews were the same as Nazis and one week later the article saying I had said that hating Jews in Israel wasn’t anti-Semitic. None of that is true.” - Ken Livingstone Blames Jewish Chronicle For Hitler Row Ahead Of ...

Every year on March 30, Palestinians all over the world demonstrate their commitment to resisting Israeli occupation, apartheid and colonialism – and this year was no different, with a hugely successful event held on Dublin’s Grafton Street.

Members of the public on one of Dublin’s busiest thoroughfares were treated to examples of traditional Palestinian culture – clothing, music, dabke dancing, poetry and, of course, food. One observer said that it “was great to see these wonderful young people practicing their traditional dancing for everyone’s delight – and really enjoying themselves at the same time too!”Members of the public also stepped up and took part in the dancing. - Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign: Home

Not one of the Twitter Accounts of Sinn Féin, the Socialist Workers Party or the Socialist Party contain comments about the train bomb in Russia. The Socialist Workers Party used the occasion to enlighten us that they have succeeded in establishing the right to fly a Palestinian Flag over Dublin City Council Offices, for a group that is well over-represented in comparison to the demographic who make him up the majority of the customers passing through the Merchant's Quay Café outside the DCC Offices.

The subhuman scum that they are, couldn't even zip it for the day that was in it.

How Ken Livingstone left Labour in turmoil after claiming Hitler backed moving Jews to Israel

Paul Murphy calls for an intifada against Israel, July 2013.

In an interview (jump to 07:11) on Russian state TV he calls for an uprising, not against the Russian dictatorship but against the democracy of Israel: "You've seen significant protest, significant movements, the potential to redevelop a struggle along the lines of the first intifada. That's the kind of thing that is necessary. Such a movement could link up with the genuine Israeli left, with working people and young people, who don't benefit from the oppression of the Palestinians, overthrow the capitalist establishment of Israel."

In a passive-aggressive way, he later explains that this is not of course a call for killing. This "intifada" would be peaceful - unlike both previous intifadas.

The First Intifada killed 160 Israelis.

The Second Intifada killed 1,000 Israelis.

But he is not totally opposed to jihad violence against Israel. Paul Murphy, 25 July 2013, openly supports violence against the IDF. "I think the Palestinians have a right to defend themselves against Israeli aggression and that may involve armed defence against soldiers - I wouldn't have a problem with that". -The Irish left and Israel - Politicians - Mark Humphrys


The last time the British backed Loyalist Death Squads bombed Dublin, Militant Labour only crawled out from the rocks they were hiding under, when it was time to defend Prison Wardens. Éirígí, Sinn Féin and the wider Republican Movement have openly aligned themselves with these people, and that's one of many reasons Ó Snodaigh and SF can not be trusted next nor near Policing or the Irish Defence Forces. I have more confidence in Enda Kenny than I do in SF to denounce Islamic terrorists.


They clearly don't have a problem with violence, so they best not start complaining when it comes knocking on their doors, and it's only a matter of time before that happens.

What impact do you think the revolutions in North Africa and the Middle East will have on developments in the region?

It is obvious that these revolutions have an impact on the situation in Israel/Palestine. Across the region, there have been demonstrations and protests in solidarity with the oppressed Palestinian masses. At the same time, the Palestinian people have been inspired by the revolutionary events in the region. The revolutions also had an impact in building pressure on Hamas and Fatah to discuss forming a national unity government.

It is clear, from my own trip to Tunisia and the experiences of CWI members in Egypt and elsewhere that the future of the revolutions still lies in the balance. Across the region, the forces of counter-revolution are re-organising and attempting to consolidate power. Unless the revolution moves forward and the working class and poor masses take full democratic control of the running of society and the economy, unfortunately the aspirations of the people who have bravely overthrown brutal dictators will not be met.

What is your attitude to Hamas?

I have always accepted the legitimate electoral victory of Hamas in Gaza in 2006 and opposed the blockade imposed by the Israeli state. In my view, Hamas was able to win support as a result of increased frustration and disillusionment on the part of the Palestinian masses with the failed Oslo peace process which was brokered by the Fatah wing of the PLO under Arafat. On top of that, the Palestinian masses were increasingly dissatisfied with the corruption and nepotism under the Fatah led Palestinian Authorities.

How do you think that a Palestinian state can be achieved?

The so-called “Arab Spring” – in reality, revolutions and revolutionary movements and uprisings in North Africa and the Middle East – demonstrated, once again, that mass resistance, collective action by the oppressed against their oppressors are the most effective tool in bringing about substantial change. The first Palestinian mass uprising in 1987 – the first Intifada – shook the Israeli ruling class and imperialism and forced the Israeli regime into ‘peace negotiations’ which however led to the fraudulent Oslo agreement, in 1993, a cruel cul-de-sac for Palestinians.

A re-development of mass struggle is vital, in my opinion, to bring the struggle forward. To achieve that, no trust must be placed in the various Western powers, which, on occasion, may pretend to be ‘favourable’ to the Palestinian people.

Instead, what needs to be built, in my opinion, is mass revolutionary movements of the Palestinian masses, the risen masses of the Arab world as well as the working class and poor in Israel itself. Such movements could complete the overthrow of the corrupt elites in the Arab world, as well as kick out the right-wing Israeli establishment, and fight to create a socialist Palestine, alongside a socialist Israel, as part of a socialist confederation of the Middle East. - Paul Murphy Socialist Party MEP sails to Gaza - Socialist Party (Ireland)



"Diplomacy, negotiations and political resolution of conflict is key." - Mr Flanagan later posted on Twitter: "For those chasing headlines let me be clear Isis are terrorists."

The Al-Qaeda Affiliates Merger in Mali

MARCH 28, 2017

On March 2, 2017, leaders of several Mali-based terrorist factions linked to al-Qaeda released a video statement announcing the creation of a new organization via the merging of their groups.

In the video statement, the Ansar al-Dine leader Iyad Ag Ghaly (seen below sitting in the middle of a panel of local militant leaders) states that the new faction is to be named Jama’at Nusrat al-Islam wal-Muslimin (The Support Group for Islam and the Muslims, or JNIM), and would bring his own group into a single formal entity with the Greater Sahara Brigade (GSB), al-Mourabitoun and the Macina Brigade.

The statement was released via a Telegram account titled al-Zaleqa Media Production, set to be the official propaganda outlet for the new organization.

Appearing alongside Ag Ghaly in the video are the senior militant leaders Yahya Abu al-Hamam (emir of the GSB), Ahmadou Kouffa (emir of the Macina Brigades), al-Hasan al-Ansari (deputy emir of al-Mourabitoun), and Abu Abderrahman al-Sinhaji (a senior cleric in the Greater Sahara Brigades). It appears that these figures are to be the operational commanders of the new group, and Ag Ghaly the regional emir.

As Ag Ghaly specifies in his statement, the organization will remain loyal to the higher leadership of al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) leader Abdel Malek Droukdel (aka Abu Musab Abdel Wudud), as well as al-Qaeda central leader Ayman al-Zawahiri and Taliban leader Mullah Haibatullah. As the Long War Journal has highlighted this week, this pyramidal system of emirs (commanders) is characteristic of how al-Qaeda’s international organization is structured.



More Mature and Effective

The formation of JNIM is the latest development in a trend going back to late 2015, which has seen al-Qaeda-linked groups in Mali becoming more cohesive and coordinated. For several years previously, the group’s senior figures and associates had been fairly disparate and in some cases conflicted, with leaders such as Belmoktar splitting from the leadership of Abdel Malek Droukdel and forming separate groups.

Since 2015, however, these splintered factions have been steadily regrouping, with Belmokhtar’s group officially rejoining AQIM in December 2015, and operational coordination in Mali between AQIM and Ansar al-Dine increasing during 2016.

Expanding Networks

One reason that al-Qaeda chose to do this, as highlighted in correspondence between its international leaders, was to shield the group from large-scale counterterrorism operations, such as those carried out by the US and its local partners, while becoming progressively more active in particular regions. - Japan rejects immigrants,the gloves are well and truly off - War ...

What does any of this have to do with the Palestinians? They were very quiet and peaceful people until their land was invaded and stolen from them in 1947 by the Zionist horde. And let's not forget that Hamas is a branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, which has been under MI6 direction since the 1930s. Hamas was set up in Palestine with Israeli funding and logistic support as a means to undermine support for the secular Socialist PLO. Hamas is the bastard child of Zionism and British imperialism.

What you should ask yourself now, is who is the one condemning Secularism, and who was the one promoting Hamas? According to Paul Murphy, the Palestinian masses were disillusioned with Fatah and the Palestinian Authorities.

That's not the part I found disgusting. It was his comments that he supported the deportation of Jews from Israel to America.

I'm still trying to work out what Aengus Ó Snodaigh is supposed to be ashamed about. Maybe you could actually write OPs, instead of just posting some stream of consciousness copy and pastes. I don't say this to insult you, but only as a request from one of your readers.
