Arab Logic in the Hashemite kingdom:
But imagine my shock when I heard – amid this feast of West-bashing and pandering to Arab grudges – the mention, en passant, of the non-existence of any “Palestine” prior to the 1920s. So unlike the Beeb to let this one slip. At roughly 6 minutes 20 seconds into the programme, the presenter and historian are perusing a pre-World War I map of the Middle East:
Presenter: What was this area called at that time?
Historian: Well, it wasn’t called any of the names we know it as today. It wasn’t SyriaÂ and it wasn’t Palestine, particularly. These were Western names, and Roman names sometimes, we used to refer to this part of the world,Â but at that time it was all just part of the Ottoman Empire.
British politicianÂ Paki turd Lord Nazir Ahmed blamed the “Zionist lobby” for a U.S. decision to extend sanctions against Iran to international satellite television companies, which will drop all Iranian programming, regime television channel Press TV reported, quoting Ahmed.
As usual, he just can’t help it.
Remember British politician Lord Ahmed, whoÂ spoke of a Jewish conspiracyÂ after beingÂ jailed for causing a deadly road accident while texting behind the wheel? HeÂ subsequentlyÂ ”completely and unreservedly” apologised to “the Jewish community”Â for the remarks.
I’m beginning to think that apologyÂ wasn’t so sincere. Â (Aussie Dave)
