Not One Brighton and Hove Labour Councillor nor Hove MP Peter Kyle Will Call for a Halt to the Genocide

Brighton & Hove Palestine Demonstration – Excerpts

Yesterday the largest ever Palestine Solidarity Demonstration took place in Brighton and Hove.   Over 3,000 people marched to a warm reception from passing cars and locals. You can hear on the video above the honking of car horns.

It was fitting that the march was led by children in memory of the 5,000+ children that the Israeli state has deliberately murdered in Gaza as it bombs homes, hospitals, schools and refugee camps.

Yet NOT ONE Labour Councillor nor the despicable MP  for Hove, Peter Kyle, who doubles up as Shadow Science Minister and Vice-Chair of Labour Friends of Israel has called for an end to genocide in Gaza.

At the next election we must call on people to vote no to having a war criminal as MP for Hove. His predecessor, Ivor Caplin, former Chair of the Jewish Labour Movement was also a war criminal, being a junior Defence Minister in Blair’s government at the time of the Iraq  War.

Yesterday I wrote to all 38 Labour Councillors asking why they had not supported the demand for a ceasefire in Gaza. As of yet none of them have replied.

In my letter I included two images – one was a sticker, thousands of which are circulating in Israel with the message ‘Exterminate Gaza’. Extermination is what the Nazis did and now Israel, in the name of fighting Nazis has adopted exactly the same terminology.

Not for nothing did Primo Levi, the Italian Jewish survivor of Auschwitz describe the Palestinians as the Jews of the Middle East. Although Israelis may imagine they are fighting the Nazis in reality they are the heirs of the Nazis.

Echoing Hitler’s Deputy Heinrich Himmler, Israel’s War Minister Yoav Gallant Calls the Palestinians ‘human animals’

When Yoav Gallant, Israel’s War Minister launched the current attacks on Gaza he declared that ‘We are fighting human animals and we will act accordingly.’  When Hitler’s Deputy Heinrich Himmler sought to justify the extermination of the Jews in a speech in Poznań on 4 October 1943, he described the Nazis as ‘the only people in the world who have a decent attitude toward animals’ and who ‘will also take a decent towards these human animals’ referring to the Jews. [A Holocaust Reader, Lucy Dawidowicz, p.131]

Israeli PM Netanyahu Describes the Palestinians as Amalek whom god commanded the Israelites to wipe out to the last infant – as Israel is doing now in Gaza

If anyone doubts that genocide is in the hearts and minds of the present Israeli government then one only has to listen to Benjamin Netanyahu, the Prime Minister of Israel and read his Letter to Soldiers and Commanders: ‘Remember what Amalek did to you.’

In the Bible God commands King Saul in the first Book of Samuelto kill every person in Amalek, a mythical tribe. The prophet Samuel tells Saul to

‘attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.’

This can be found in Deuteronomy 25:17 or the first Book of Samuel 15:2. It has been the standard interpretation of Amalek by those in Israel who advocate the extermination of the Palestinians when they chant ‘Death to the Arabs’ to equate the Palestinians with Amalek. Now the Israeli Prime Minister has done so we should be under no illusions.

The fact that Biden, Sunak, Starmer, Macron, Scholz and the other Western leaders are nonetheless willing, despite knowledge of this, to support Israel unequivocally to the extent of supplying and resupplying Israel’s missiles and bombs make them equally culpable  in the Israeli state’s war crimes. In short we are led by war criminals.
