Martin Linton returns

Saturday means anti-Israel protest outside Ahava. Yesterday's protest started an hour earlier than usual because some protesters had to shoot off to an anti-fascism and anti-Islamophobia rally.

So many protests, so little time.

After a year the Ahava protests are finally starting to attract some celebrity anti-Israel activists.

Two weeks ago Sarah Colborne, Director of Campaigns and Operations at the Palestine Solidarity Campaign, made her first appearance.

She was present again this week but there was even greater royalty in the form of Martin Linton, Chair of Labour Friends of Palestine, who lost his Battersea Parliamentary seat in May.

In March Mr. Linton told a meeting in Parliament that Israel was using its long tentacles to fund British election campaigns and to buy Conservative support. His speech made front page headlines.

I did suggest to him yesterday that if he switched sides then this all powerful pro-Israel machine might win him a place back in Parliament.

He declined but the offer still stands.

Were you and those supporting Ahava's profits going to the anti-fascism, anti-islamophobia demo too?

Richard, so are you. I take it then that you didn't go to the anti-fascism demo

tsam, those demonstrating with the obsessive anti-Israel crowd are the new fascists. They would happily see Israel and her inhabitants exterminated. Winess their chants of "from the Jordan to the sea, Palestine will be free." That means no Israel - and no Israelis. How would that be achieved? Isn't that fascism?

It's a pity you can't, or won't, see that.

Predictability is hardly a novelty around here is it ?

I've never met Mr Linton. It is an unusual name. Where did he get it?

What Amber said.

"Unite Against Fascism" does not recognise Islamist extremism and subscribes to all the hard Left's lies about Israel.

Right up your street in other words T-Spam

JH,

I might be going out on a limb here, but this is what I reckon.. the extreme Left and The Islamofascists are working together.

Of course when The Islamofacists inevitably take over, the extreme Left will be strung up with The Zionists. Which is kindovironik.

Why is that "going out on a limb", Anthony? I would have thought this became obvious some years ago. And the centre-left simply caves in to the Islamofascists, having no discernible spine or balls.

Of course.

Being 'predictable' is a consequence of being logical. Those who are 'unpredictable' are mostly those who are incapable of a logical behaviour, that is whos behaviour does not correspond to the ideals they pretend to have. eg an antisemite who pretends to be anti-racist.
Those whose ideals are true are always more predictable.
