Brava to Roslyn Pine. These are the same lapdogs, cowards and quislings who signed off and sanctioned my ban from Britain. The Jewish leadership is going to kill us. Roslyn Pine shared tweets describing Muslims as “the vilest of animals” and Arabs as “so evil.” I would not use the “animal” language myself, but I’ve never seen the Board of Deputies object to the fact that the Quran calls unbelievers animals: “Surely the vilest of animals in Allah’s sight are those who disbelieve” (8:55). And is not what the “Palestinians” do, when they murder Israeli civilians and then pass out candies to celebrate, evil? Roslyn Pine rightly termed these Jews “modern day Kapos.”
“Roslyn Pine refuses offer to apologise for ‘Islamophobic’ comments after Board of Deputies suspension,” by Daniel Sugarman, The JC, December 10, 2018 (thanks to Mark):

Roslyn Pine, who was suspended from the Board of Deputies for sharing “Islamophobic” and “anti-Arab” posts on social media, has refused to apologise despite an offer to shorten her ban if she did so.
Mrs Pine, who represented Finchley United Synagogue, was given a six year suspension from the Board in July, after sharing tweets describing Muslims as “the vilest of animals” and Arabs as “so evil”.
Last week, the JC revealed the Board was proposing amending the suspension so it would be reviewed after two years, on the condition that she publicly expressed remorse for her comments.
This followed an appeal against the original decision over whether the Board had the power to suspend Mrs Pine for that long.
On Monday, deputies were told the Board had officially offered her this, several hours after Mrs Pine wrote to all deputies to say she had “nothing to apologise for”.
“For two decades I have defended Israel against the worst antisemites at countless meetings in unglamorous venues countrywide, one of just a handful of foot soldiers, as well as defending Israel and standing against antisemites in the press,” she told them.
“I had never seen or heard of any of our leaders who now claim to lead the fight against antisemitism, in all those years.
“They are Jonny-come-latelys, more interested in mixing with the great and the good, than in grass roots defence of Israel.
Mrs Pine had faced a previous disciplinary case over complaints that she referred to fellow deputies as “modern day Kapos”, as well as joking during a meeting that Sweden’s female foreign minister was “too old to be raped”….
In her e-mail to deputies, Mrs Pine wrote: “The Board’s staff would prefer that people like me, who advocate a different approach, be silenced. I doubt I will be the last deputy to be bullied in this fashion.
“It is not for the Board of Deputies to decide what Jews can and cannot say.
“The President has said we must respect each other and our diverse opinions. The contrived case against me, lacking in any evidence, for the purpose of silencing me, stands in direct contradiction to her dictum.”
