I couldn’t help laughing when I listened to the press conference given by the celebrities who are backing tomorrow’s ridiculous anti-Israel demonstration. It was vintage ‘it’s all about me’ stuff, just like we outlined in Not In My Name. Annie Lennox, for instance, moaned that television footage of the fighting had ruined her Christmas ‘as a mother’!
Meanwhile, the ever-vile Alexei Sayle came out with his usual naïve, distorted claptrap, and then said that the Israel action was not being done in his name. That’s right, it’s not being done in your name, Alexei. It’s being done in the name of the Israelis who have had over 7,000 rockets fired at them from Gaza in the last seven years by an Islamic terror group that wants to wipe every Israeli out.
Your name has got nothing to do with it, Alexei. However hard you try.
The march is being co-organised by the British Muslim Initiative, whose President was quoted on Al Jazeera television earlier this year as saying he hates “the evil Jew”. Ken Livingstone and George Galloway will be there too. I’m sure they’ll all have a lovely day together. I bet they can’t wait!
