It was the conference of the hard-left Labour Party in the UK, but from the looks of things, it was a jihad rally in Gaza. Far more “Palestinian” flags were flying than British flags, as the Labour members made their allegiance clear: they don’t care about Britain. They only care about advancing the agenda of the international left, which is pro-jihad, open borders, pro-socialism, and against any semblance of nationalism (except from the “Palestinians”). Emily Thornberry denounced the growing antisemitism of the party in practically the same breath as she praised the “Palestinian” jihad, but that was just for show. There is nothing left to Labour except its antisemitism and support for the “Palestinian” jihad.
“Labour conference: Members fill hall with Palestinian flags,” BBC, September 25, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
Hundreds of Labour members unfurled Palestinian flags and chanted slogans at the start of a conference debate on the plight of people in the region.
With passions running high, delegate Colin Monehen refused to leave the stage when told his time had expired.
“My time is not up, I’m speaking for the Palestinian people,” he cried to loud applause.
“If you want me off, you better send an army because East Enders, like Palestinians, don’t go down easy.”
Mr Monehen asked the conference, in Liverpool, to imagine there were “two babies being born in Jerusalem – one to Palestinian parents, the other to Israeli parents”.
“I want you to realise that this motion is about wanting those babies to have a better future than the futures filled with pain, suffering and hatred,” he said.
“Let’s put their futures on a different trajectory to the one that has been mapped out for them.
“I want us to say this to every Palestinian:, ‘We have heard you calling from the darkness and we cannot and we will not ignore you or your tragedy.'”
Paul Wilkinson, of Gedling Labour Party, briefly took to the stage to say he had been prevented by the stewards from waving an EU flag in the conference hall earlier, accusing organisers of “double standards”.
Mr Monehen’s motion was then seconded by Zahid Ali, whose speech calling for an end to the blockade of Gaza and arms sales to Israel, was greeted with chants of: “Free! Free! Palestine,” as leader Jeremy Corbyn looked on from a seat on the platform.
Next on stage was shadow foreign secretary Emily Thornberry, who gave a fiery speech hailing Labour’s history of fighting against fascism and racism and vowing the party would never again get involved in “illegal, aggressive wars of intervention”.
But she also addressed the anti-Semitism row that engulfed Labour over the summer, telling delegates: “If we want to root out fascism and racism and hatred from our world, and from our country, then we must start, we must start, with rooting it out of our own party.
“There are sickening individuals on the fringes of our movement who use our legitimate support for Palestine as a cloak and a cover for their despicable hatred of Jewish people and their desire to see Israel destroyed.
“Those people stand for everything that we have always stood against and they must be kicked out of our party.”
She also called on Labour members to end “the pointless conflicts which divide our movement, which poison our online debate, and which distract us from fighting the Tories”.
Ms Thornberry’s speech was given an enthusiastic standing ovation as she was hugged by Mr Corbyn….
