Rejoice, Rejoice, The Witch is Gone!! – Louise Ellman, Racist MP for Liverpool Riverside Finally Gets the Hint
Parachuted in by Blair, Louise Ellman, a dedicated supporter of Israeli child abuse finally gets the message that she isn’t wanted
Speaking to the Jewish Chronicle after finally resigning from the Labour Party, Louise Ellman said it “sounded very credible” that Jeremy Corbyn had once dubbed her “the Honourable Member for Tel Aviv”
I don’t know whether Jeremy Corbyn has ever called her the Member for Tel Aviv but there is certainly nothing honourable about this wretch. As the Jewish Chronicle’s Daniel Sugarman noted:
Mr Greenstein was expelled from Labour in February over abusive behaviour that included writing blog posts about veteran Jewish Labour MP Louise Ellman as the MP for “Tel Aviv South” and a “racist supporter of the child abuse of Palestinian children”.
When Apartheid in South Africa existed we used to call the Tory MP for Luton North, John Carlisle, a supporter of the Apartheid regime who died earlier this year, ‘the member for Bloemfontein West’. He was also called the MP for Johannesburg!
I doubt that that was racist. So why should it be racist or anti-Semitic to describe Louise Ellman as the MP for Tel Aviv?
Louise Ellman is however a despicable supporter of Israel’s abuse of Palestinian children.
On 6th January 2016 there was a Parliamentary Debate ‘Child Prisoners and Detainees: Occupied Palestinian Territories’
It was introduced by Sarah Champion MP who cited a report from British lawyers in June 2012 concerning Palestinian children held in Israeli military custody. Facilitated and funded by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office the Report found that Israel was in breach of six of its legal obligations under the UN convention on the rights of the child and two obligations under the fourth Geneva convention
The report concluded that if the allegations of abuse were true, Israel would also be in breach of the absolute prohibition against cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. In other words Israel tortures children and Ellman defends it. Indeed Israel barely denies it since it is legal under Israeli law.
Eight months after the UK report was published, UNICEF released its own assessment of the military detention system for children. Based on over 400 sworn affidavits from children as young as 12 who were detained by military courts, UNICEF concluded that
“the ill-treatment of children who come in contact with the military detention system appears to be widespread, systematic and institutionalized throughout the process, from the moment of arrest until the child’s prosecution and eventual conviction and sentencing”.
None of this stopped Dame Ellman intervening 3 times during the debate to defend the Israeli military’s treatment of children:
‘does she accept that the context in which these situations occur is an organised campaign conducted by the Palestinian authorities of incitement, to try to provoke young Palestinians to carry out acts of violence towards other civilians, some of which result in death, including the death of young children?’
The idea that Palestinian children have to be incited to attack the military occupation, because otherwise they would fall in love with soldiers who tear gas them is one of Ellman’s pet themes.
Ms Champion responded that:
‘this debate is about the different treatment of Palestinian and Israeli children, and the breach of human rights and international law.’
The late Jo Cox MP also intervened:
‘evidence from Military Court Watch suggests that 65% of children continue to report being arrested at night in what are described as terrifying raids by the military.’
This did not deter Ellman who intervened again:
‘Does my hon. Friend really believe that the solution to this horrendous conflict between two peoples—the Israeli and the Palestinian people—can be found by encouraging individual child Palestinians to commit acts of violence against other human beings?’
And then this despicable MP intervened a 3rd time:
‘I note my hon. Friend’s comments that a child should not be detained, and I assume that she means in any circumstances. Suppose a child was involved in an act of violence that resulted in the deaths of other human beings. That is what has happened with young Palestinians throwing stones—people have been killed. In those circumstances, surely she thinks that there should be detention.’
Military arrests of children of which there are hundreds each year are a method of coercing and intimidating Palestinian communities.
Two years later, on 7th February 2018, there was another debate on Palestinian Children and Israeli Military Detention. Ellman made a speech supporting the Israeli military. She spoke of
‘the Palestinian Authority’s incitement of young people to hate and kill, as is happening on the west bank today. Such incitement is specifically in breach of the Geneva conventions.’
In fact the Palestinian Authority is a Quisling Authority which works with the Israeli military to prevent acts of resistance. Ellman went on:
‘We must remember that 75% of the offences committed by Palestinian minors are violent crimes, including murder, attempted murder, shooting, making and throwing Molotov cocktails, and attacking soldiers. Thirty per cent. of assailants in the terror attacks of 2016 were under 18 years old. The youngest was 11. For example, in June 2016, 13-year-old Hallel Ariel was stabbed to death by Nasser Tarayrah, a 17-year-old Palestinian, who climbed into her home and stabbed her repeatedly in a frenzied attack in front of her younger siblings.’
Ellman was referring to the death of an Israeli settler child. She ‘forgot’ to mention the 32 Palestinian children killed in 2016. A further 14 were killed in 2017 and in 2018 56 were killed, the highest for four years. However as these were Palestinian children who had died they were of no account to this racist.
Ellman did however mention the death of one settler baby ‘Yehuda Haim Shoham, aged five months.’ Jewish children are mentioned by name. Palestinian children aren’t mentioned at all.
The reason Ellman has been forced to resign is not that she is Jewish. Some of her major critics in Liverpool Riverside CLP have been Jewish. It’s because she is a racist and a Zionist. See The Riverside scandal: Louise Ellman and the war on Riverside Labour Party
It is difficult for the yellow press and the BBC to get their heads round that Ellman is hated because of who she is not because she is Jewish.
The BBC tonight carried another lying report about Ellman’s resignation. Once again it carried nothing from her critics. No doubt the BBC will claim that this like all other reports are within BBC Guidelines.
It is a great pity that Jeremy Corbyn thanked Ellman for her services to the Labour Party, since no one can remember any. Given she blamed Corbyn for her resignation it is a pity he even mentioned this execrable woman. The only service she has done the Labour Party is her resignation from it.
