An almost unprecedented onslaught on prominent Palestinian supporters over the past several days has led to a deliberate campaign to permanently silence some of Israel’s most outspoken detractors.
While this apparent attack on free expression was being implemented, it also served to deflect attention from a hard-hitting TV investigation that revealed a plot to undermine democracy and support for the Palestinian cause within the British Labour Party.
The information contained in the largest document leak in British political history served as the foundation for a damning three-part Al Jazeera TV documentary. According to “The Labour Files: The Purge,” a small group of unelected officials planned to scupper Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn’s political juggernaut.
In a demonstration of zero tolerance for free speech when it comes to condemning Israel and its Zionist supporters, a number of pro-Palestinian voices, including academics, officials and even Jews who refuse to grovel to Tel Aviv, have been silenced through the Labour Party’s draconian censorship.
Surprisingly, the first segment of the documentary appears to have sparked a barrage of Zionist hatred against more critics of the apartheid state’s cruel military occupation of Palestine rather than apologies or even resignations. Such vile tactics only help to support the kind of strict control and assaults on free expression that we associate with dictatorships.
Either via self-censorship – to date, not one major news organization has mentioned the remarkable five-year operation to discredit Corbyn — or through selective reporting of actual events, elements of the mainstream media are involved. or either.
For example, two musicales arranged in Poland by Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters were cancelled over the weekend amid outrage at the candid musician’s open letter to Ukraine’s first lady, Olena Zelenska. Waters told her that” extreme chauvinists” in Ukraine” have set your country on the path to this disastrous war.”
The media knows that” extreme chauvinists” is decalogue for the far-right hooligan networks and soldiers of the Azov Battalion, which came up in the fighting in Mariupol back in 2014. Today, no one refers to their pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic credentials, or mention that they’re on Kyiv’s payroll as part of Ukraine’s National Guard.
Indeed, the US government has described the Azov’s political party, the National Corps, as a” nationalist hate group” and banned any of its military aid to Ukraine from reaching the legion. According to the FBI, Azov is training and radicalizing US white racialists who are among the estimated,000 foreign right- wing revolutionaries who have been drawn to Ukraine in recent times.
Roger Waters was therefore supposedly silenced over his attempts to enlighten the world that perhaps all isn’t what it seems in Ukraine. The last thing that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy wants is apro-Palestine gemstone star mouthing off in neighboring Poland. Zelenskyy’s close sympathizers in Tel Aviv have long longed to silence Waters by turning him into a social leper for daring to denounce the Zionist colonizer- occupation of Palestine.
Hence, the moment that Waters stepped down from the red line about Ukraine, Krakow City Councilor Lukasz Wantuch and his associates drafted a resolution to declare Waters persona non grata in Poland. presently on stint in the US, the vocalist- activist responded on Facebook by saying,” Hey Lukasz Wantuch, leave them kiddies alone”, rephrasing the lyrics of the classic Pink Floyd song” Another Brick in the Wall”. He indicted Wantuch of” draconian” suppression.
