On the street, the revival of Nazi-era assaults on Jewish stores, in particular Ahava, frequently go unpunished. Judge George Bathurst-Norman set free the vandals who had attacked a factory because he asserted that their animus toward the Jewish state justified their actions and even made them heroes. The escalation of hostility into violence has become routine and vandalism, theft and assault have become the hardly remarked upon tools of anti-Israel protesters.
Fusing together the worst of the red-green alliance between the Marxist left and Islam is the Respect Party, whose leading member is George Galloway. Galloway has just clambered back into parliament after campaigning on his “quasi-Islamic values” and boasting that he was a better Pakistani than the Labour Muslim candidate he was running against because he avoids pubs.
Galloway had celebrated his return to parliament with a cry of “All Praise to Allah” and by lending his name to the Global March on Jerusalem. A month earlier Carole Swords, the chairwoman of the Respect Party in Tower Hamlets, had been convicted of assaulting a Jewish man who had blocked her from destroying Israeli products.
Pro-Israel MPs have come under organized attack from MPACUK, the Muslim Public Affairs Committee, whose website asks, “Is your MP a Zionist?” Asghar Bukhari, a founding member and head of the organization, has written that, “Any Muslim who fights against Israel and dies is a martyr and will be granted paradise.”
This month the flames spread to the offices of the Harrow East Conservative Association and Bob Blackman, the conservative MP. The attack was similar to the one that had been carried out by Muslim activists against the publisher of the Jewel of Medina. It was, as MP Blackman said, a reminder that “There are people who will pursue threats.”
But much of the landscape of the war on the Jewish State in the UK, from the boycotts to the vandalism and the assaults, are already a reminder of that. After the Toulouse massacre of Jewish children by a Muslin gunman, MP Mann wrote, “For the last five years the All-Party Parliamentary Group Against Anti-semitism has warned that such an attack was depressingly predictable.”
The threats against Jewish or pro-Israel MPs have already accomplished their intended purpose by marginalizing them and diminishing their ability to connect to their constituents. This has always been the strategy of the other side: to isolate a group and then isolate its members, drive them out of their positions, while continually maintaining a campaign of hatred against them. That is the practice and the endgame of the red-green alliance. These are the tactics that the National Socialists employed against the Jews, and they are the tactics that the Socialist Unity Network and their Muslim allies are employing against Jews in the UK now. It is important to know them and vital to resist them.
