UK journalist, author and feminist, Uganda-born Yasmin Alibhai-Brown crossed the Jewish Lobby ‘Red-Line’ on March 29, 2015. In a column at UK daily Independent, she called the Zionist entity a worst terrorist entity than Islamic resistance Hamas, ruling the Gaza Strip without Israel-US-EU blessings since 2006.
“Hamas is a wicked and dangerous force in the Middle East. But Israel is now more wicked and dangerous,” she said.
Yasmin said that the Organized Jewry, despite the huge propaganda, doesn’t believe in the so-called ‘Freedom of Press’ when it involves criticism of Israel, Holocaust or Zionism. To prove her point, she mentioned its opposition to a debate at the Southampton University.
She also touched on the new Jewish religion Holocaust by saying: “Jewish thinkers and writers in the UK, US and Israel are now questioning the way the Holocaust has been cheapened and used to justify inhumane policies and actions of state of Israel.”
Yasmin, however, also praised her “lefty” Jewish friends, saying: “I wish more of us Muslims acknowledged Jewish men and women who, in spite of intolerable pressures, fight for Palestine, an ethical, just Israel and equality for all. I wish more Muslims were as fair-minded and honourable as these Jewish resistors.”
So you, see, she is not a “bigot” Muslim extremist who hates Jews for being Jewish. But, she did call the Zionist entity “apartheid”, “racist”, “anti-Jewish”, and “exploiter” of Holocaust in the past.
Yasmin is wrong to compare Hamas actions with the US pampered Israel Occupation Force (IOF). Hamas has every right under international laws to wage an armed resistance against Western colonists occupying its ancestral homeland. The Israeli army by its past savagery in Gaza and Lebanon has proved beyond any doubt that it’s the greatest terrorist organization in the Middle East.
Well, Yasmin is not the only who has crossed the ‘Red Line’. On April 1, 2015, BBC’s former ME correspondent in occupied Jerusalem (1995-2000), Jeremy Bowen, interviewed Hamas political leader Khaled Meshaal in Doha, Qatar, where he lives. During the interview, Meshaal accused Zionist prime minister Benjamin Netanyahy for killing Israel-Palestine peace process. The Jewish Lobby was all praise for Meshaal when he left Damascus to join the US-Israel led anti-Assad coalition a few years ago. Ironically, Meshaal’s gamble didn’t pay-off. Now, he is trying his best to return to the ‘Axis of Resistance’ (Iran-Syria-Hizbullah).
