Antisemitism and terrorism supported by the NUT

Post by Guest on Mon May 16, 2016 6:25 pm

ll’, and infest our curriculum with the antisemitic venom. The poison which remains the central pillar of the false Arab narrative.  I was never to get to see that particular workshop, by the time it started I had been evicted. The first to speak at the event was the new chair of the PSC Sarah Apps, who spoke for just a few minutes. She mentioned house demolitions of Arabs inside Israel. Context once again lost in the wind. It is worth remembering when listening to this type of distortion that more people inside the London borough of Barnet have lost their homes to compulsory purchase orders, than Israel’s Arabs have to the same type of governmental planning. You can make anything seem sinister and racist if you work at it long enough.

The NUT, insulting children in need.


Sarah then spent time thanking the NUT for their support of the Palestinian cause, before introducing the next speaker, ex NUT president, Philippa Harvey, who was there to speak ‘on behalf’ of the teacher’s union. Philippa spoke of NUT delegations that had been sent to ‘the Occupied West Bank’. On the NUT’s list of international campaigns, there is just one nation that is targeted in such a fashion, Israel.  Philippa is a driving force behind the NUT focus on Israel, and having swallowed a false narrative herself, she is now eager to pass it on to everyone else. She described to the audience a new project called “beyond the wall”.
The project intends to engage schools in the UK, their teachers, pupils and parents in learning about schooling in conflict zones. The main vehicles for the project are the films, which illustrate the daily struggles experienced by Palestinian children as they try to gain an education. Or in other words, inject raw Palestinian propaganda into our education system. Philippa went on to explain how UK children need to be introduced to the testimony of a child in Hebron whose right to education is ‘severely impaired’. She wants his ‘fear’ to be understood inside our school system. Except of course we know it isn’t true. Palestinian NGO’s in Hebron have clearly stated that there is no danger and media reports are deliberately exaggerated as part of the propaganda exercise. Education is not at risk, as this report clarifies.


“Palestine’s enrollment rate was comparable with those of highly developed countries, such as the United States, which had a 96% primary school enrollment rate over the span of 2008-2011…The UN’s education index, taken from the UN’s mean years of schooling index and expected years of schooling index, also reflected Palestine’s achievement with an index of 0.88, ranking it best in the Arab world. Palestine’s education rank even bested the 0.87 index of Qatar, a country that the UN considers to be the most highly developed in the Arab world.”

There are probably over 100 countries worldwide where children do not have the access to education that the children in Hebron do, this despite the conflict. The entire exercise therefore is about demonisation. These stories are based on distortion and are created *specifically* to mislead our children. This, like most attempts at installing the Palestinian narrative into everyday discourse, is a disgraceful abuse of resources and a direct and vile insult to many children of the world who truly suffer life threatening oppression from which they have little chance of escape. Every penny wasted on supporting Palestinian rejectionism is a penny taken out of the mouths of true needy children worldwide. The children in these videos are the human shields of Palestinian violent resistance. And the NUT is ‘really proud’ of this work, of the ‘many testimonials’ that have been collected! Disgraceful. This resource and all other educational tools produced by the Palestinian propaganda machine need to be removed from our schools.

Revisionist history

The next speaker was Nur Masalha. He was born inside Israel, the only nation in the entire Middle East that would give him a vote. He left school and went to study for a MA at the Hebrew university in Jerusalem. After completion of his first degree at the Israeli university, he studied for a MA on the same campus. Upon completion he left Israel to study in the UK. Some hardship. Masalha delivered a tale of a ‘Naqba’ that was, like most, imagined, out of context, poppycock. There was apparently no civil conflict at all. There was according to the academic, a deliberate plan, already solidified by the Zionists by the mid 1930’s, to simply expel the Arabs. This conspiratorial argument, pushed also by the master distortionist Illan Pappe, takes carefully selected quotes from the pre-partition world vision, and places them on top of the post-partition civil war. As far as the conflict history goes, the speaker had left most of the factual information in the taxi. Yet this historical revisionism was not the most sickening element of his delivery. This was reserved for what he called the ‘vertical colonialism’ and his acceptance of ‘all forms of resistance’.

The SOAS professor accused the Jews of appropriating Palestinian history. It is one thing to take issue with Israeli policy, quite another to deny or belittle the Jewish historical presence because it has become politically expedient for him to do so. Masalha claimed Palestinian history dates back 10,000 years. He suggested that the Zionists had ‘colonised our history’ and were appropriating ‘our artefacts’. He claimed the Israelis were making statements of religious finds related to their temples, that were in truth just remnants of historical sites of Muslim palaces. He then seemed to suggest that Zionists had also ‘appropriated’ Jewish history as if they are not actually Jews themselves. When answering questions, Masalha also suggested ‘Jesus was from Palestine’, forcing home the propaganda narrative by stating there are no academic books that refer to the ‘land of Israel’.  He spoke of Palestine existing as a ‘country’ for millennia.
Masalha’s book ‘the Bible and Zionism’ (have you caught on to this man’s obsession yet?) is a sad tale of someone with extreme bias, desperately trying to rearrange the historical underpinnings of modern Zionism. This is not about what did or did not happen in the British mandate of Palestine at all, this is all about striking at the heart of Jewish belief, in an attempt to shake the roots of Zionism.
As Illan Pappe has said:


“Indeed the struggle is about ideology, not about facts. Who knows what facts are? We try to convince as many people as we can that our interpretation of the facts is the correct one, and we do it because of ideological reasons, not because we are truthseekers.”

The turning of Zionism from a national liberation movement to a colonial settler movement is dependent on revising Jewish history. Therefore it is incumbent on those who seek Israel’s destruction to remove Jewish history from the area and/or suggest the Jews of today are simply a group of religious converts. Both of these deny the Jews, not the Zionists, the very basis of their identity as a people. As such both are not only historically bogus but deeply antisemitic.  Antisemitic historical revisionism inside the HQ of the UK teachers union.

Condoning the massacre of children

Masalha then turned his attention to ‘resistance’. He spoke several times on the subject, maintaining there was no need to worry as the Palestinians ‘knew how to resist’, he said Palestinians are ‘expert at it’. He continued by referencing one specific struggle, the uprising of the 1930’s, and suggested that the Arabs had a right to ‘fight back’. That he chose the 1936-1939 revolt is instructive. Firstly, it precedes Israel, so is nothing to do with any ‘Naqba’. Secondly, they were not fighting back against violence but were spurred into action because of rising immigration. Specifically, Jews fleeing the Nazis.
It is true that the Palestinians have hidden themselves behind the left wing peace movements. This they have been able to do since 1967.  Yet their narrative of total rejection has never changed. As you strip away the excuses, the ‘occupation’, the ‘settlements’, the ‘Naqba’, the less their argument seems one of peace and equality. By 1936, the entire situation is on its head.

Nur Masalha inside the NUT headquarters condoned people violently resisting a refugee immigration. He effectively said the Arabs of 1936-1939 had the right to kill innocent refugees fleeing the Nazis. This is the voice that suggests foreign immigrants steal our jobs and our homes, this is the face of the fascism.
And then to qualify, he said this “I am not ruling out any form of struggle for Palestine, this way or another. It is for the people to decide’
That comment includes them all. The bus bombs, the attack on Seder night, the Purim attacks, the attacks in the pubs and the clubs, the attacks against the schools. Any death, any terror attack, however horrific is not to be ruled out. It is for ‘the people to decide’. Is it okay for British people to kill the children of refugees in schools because they fear the impact of immigration? Is deliberately targeting children who are out having fun, carrying out ‘an acceptable’ act of resistance?

We need a public statement from the NUT distancing themselves from these remarks. This came from an event they supported, this happened inside their HQ.
The Naqba itself is an invention. This is not to say they didn’t suffer losses, that bad things didn’t happen, but merely to reaffirm the historical fact this was a fight they chose and lost. The entire narrative built around the conspiratorial minds of those like Illan Pappe and supported by ‘oral history’. All cause and effect is removed.

Take Ben Jamal, another of the speakers at the event. Jamal recently wrote a piece called ‘What the Nakba meant for me’. Ben Jamal is also a member of Palestine Solidarity Campaign’s executive committee. Part of Ben’s family apparently were ‘expelled’ from Talbieh. Talbieh was an affluent Arab Christian town that had developed amidst West Jerusalem’s new neighbourhoods. An entire area feeling the benefit of Jewish immigration. The land was purchased as late as 1920 as part of a project by a Lebanese Christian. This makes Tel Aviv older than the town Ben Jamal yearns for.  Except you learn that Ben’s father wasn’t there, he was in Nazareth. So he too was inside Israel. If his grandparents fled to Nazareth, they did not become refugees, but rather part of the only community of Arabs in the Middle East that know freedom. Eventually, Ben’s father married an English woman and they came to live in the UK. Some hardship.

It is so important to recognise that so much of the poison in this conflict enters via Arabs on the outside who themselves are not suffering. People like Ben Jamal and Nur Masalha lead a fight that only brings further bloodshed, that can only result in additional Palestinian misery. As they themselves sit in comfort in the UK, they demand from the Palestinians that there should be no compromise. Who pays the price? This is the way it has been for 100 years, Arabs on the outside, historically in Beirut, Cairo, Amman and Damascus, but now in London, New York and Paris, dictating the terms for the Arabs of Ramallah. The true Palestinian Naqba is not the civil war of 1948, it isn’t even the land Israel is on. The Palestinian ‘catastrophe’ is what the Jews have managed to do with Israel. Who wouldn’t want a piece? And like any gambler who refuses to walk away from the table, they can only seek out ever higher odds as a way of theoretically making up lost ground. It is why the screams about the non-existent Naqba increase with each passing year. As the new Israeli Ambassador to the UK said recently at an event at the Board of Deputies, they (the Arabs) rejected independence and played for all or nothing and lost.





This needs an official NUT response

Richard Millett asked a question in 2012. What is a union like the NUT doing hosting what amounted to an evening of anti-Israel propaganda?
Today I do not just echo it, I raise it further. I ask what is a union like the NUT doing promoting, sponsoring and hosting an event that demonised Jews, removed Jewish history from the equatioN, converted Jesus from a Jew into, well into anything else and gave a platform to those that condone brutal acts of despicable violence? This Jew hatred, this historical revisionism, this support for terrorism, has no place in our school system. We need to ensure that the NUT distances itself not just from these remarks, but from this insidious poison that underscores the PSC movement. On Saturday, a Jew was evicted from the NUT headquarters because he is proud of his Jewish heritage and refuses to bow down before this revisionist propaganda. I reject entirely the lies that are being disseminated by the PSC movement. It is a movement with its roots in fabrication, denying Jewish history and supporting terrorism. Is all this now acceptable in London in 2016? Well the National Union of Teachers seems to think so. So I say to the NUT directly. On Saturday 14th May, I was thrown out of your HQ.  I was thrown out shortly after hearing antisemitic, terrorist supporting garbage loudly applauded inside your headquarters. I deserve both a response and an apology.

I'm not surprised te guy got chucked out of the NUT event. He's a total fruitcake. Here's the material from the event and it covers education for children all over the world where there is conflict.


https://www.teachers.org.uk/sites/default/files2014/global-matters-bulletin-spring-2016.pdf


And the moving feely video is an accurate account by the children on what life is like in a school in a refugee camp.  And if you care to look at it you will see that the boy is wearing an Arsenal top  so the lesson there is be careful who you may rub shoulders with as you could be seen as supporting terrorists like Arsenal fan Osama Bin Laden lol.



Moving Freely - Nablus



And here's another pair that in your eyes you should never be seen near or rub shoulders with...



Appears some people don't want children in conflict zones to have a decent education without fear and you are one of them.


That whole article is nothing more that pure islamophobic propaganda and you should have a red face as pure as Jeremy Corbyn and SadiqKhan's Arsenal Scarfs.

"Osama, woah-woah, Osama, woah-waoh, he's hiding in Kabul, he loves the Arsenal",

I take it you walked out of the clock end at Highbury when the chant went up . Bet you stayed and joined in with all the other hooligans lol

I don't even bother with the lame 'cut & paste' that Didge-dooer can only offer up; if I wanted to read every Blog Post/FB offering/National Enquirer Blurb that only he can drag in here I'd {sans any free-will opinion of his own} just keep reading all of the news feed from around the world.
  But now that he's spewed his lazy method for posting --- I'm just continuing to ignore the waste of bandwidth because if he can't be troubled to leave a comment about the article --- then why the hell should we
And I put a very similar article with OPINION about the work that those refugee children are doing in Turkey, and the schools that they've opened up trying to keep them enticed to stay in school.

So in order for sassy to actually responds to the points made, we have in her response.

First dehumanize the writer, but falsifying and claiming he is insane, based on no evidence.

To then not then questions as I would, why the NUS is placing children as secondary to instead maiking they first and foremost goal, their obsessions with israel, always their number one prority?

Please explain to me how a major aspect of their international capaign is based around Israel, with a view to making all its cirizens, including children. By the promotion to call only for the boycott of Israeli goods? Why such a process, hinders all chances of peace being achieved?

Explain to me how and why the Palestian?Israel conflcit is elevated to such a hig level of need to discuss in UK schools to the young more so than?
Just please explain to me, how an organisation, can continue to function, when it places its own personal hate over the many pressing problems of children globally?

I mean thn asak them why thn not Iran is the not talked of in regards to children?

Or how abot child labour?
Why is that not of importance to be taught Sassy, but instead, the viiew tro introduce regressive leftist training methods to brainwash further generations from the earliest ages, to view Israel and Jews with a prejudice?



• 16,000 children die every day, mostly from preventable or treatable causes.
• The births of nearly 230 million children under age 5 worldwide (about one in three) have never been officially recorded, depriving them of their right to a name and nationality.
• 2.4 billion people lack access to improved sanitation, including 946 million who are forced to resort to open defecation for lack of other options.
• Out of an estimated 35 million people living with HIV, over 2 million are 10 to 19 years old, and 56 per cent of them are girls.
• Globally, about one third of women aged 20 to 24 were child brides.
• Every 10 minutes, somewhere in the world, an adolescent girl dies as a result of violence.
• Nearly half of all deaths in children under age 5 are attributable to undernutrition. This translates into the unnecessary loss of about 3 million young lives a year.

Dodge obviously didn't read the link, it was global, was also about Sierra Leone, Turkey, Syria, Nicaragua, Djibouti, TTIP, The Send My Friend to School Campaign for children in crisis areas all over the world, The Young Ambassadors Award, the Deaf Children Campaign etc

Oh yes, it was all about Israel lol

Well, again, left facing some easy questions, sassy chose the option of yet more deflections.

What does it ever really say about people, when they care to claim for children, yet end up using them as the means to a political prejudice agenda, againts one nation.

That the hate of Israel and even more so to promote this matters far more than millions of children world wide.

That is the leftist brain malfunctioning again.

Lets see if sassy is telling the truth shall we?



GERM and Privatisation

The NUT, alongside teacher unions and NGO’s from across the globe, have huge concerns about the role played by ‘edu-business’ in shaping an education policy increasingly based upon high-stakes testing, an increasing ‘exam factory’ culture in schools, and the spread of for-profit education. Pearson invest heavily in lobbying various governmental and inter-governmental organisations to forward their business aims at the expense of promoting free public quality education.

Pearson AGM demo 2016 At the 2016 AGM of Pearson the NUT and allies supported a resolution calling for the company to conduct a review of their damaging business model. You can read the Education International Pearson Stakeholder Report and letter to Pearson CEO John Fallon, and join others from around the globe in signing an on-line petition.

Pearson strikes in the Philippines
The edubusiness Pearson is profiting from poverty in the Global South by promoting Affordable Private Education Centres in the Philippines, which are well out of the reach of poor families. EI report here.

Profiting from poverty, DfID’s support for privatising education
Department for International Development aid money helps to privatise education across Africa and Asia. So called ‘low cost schools’ are still too expensive for many families and employ badly-paid unqualified teachers. The NUT, alongside a number of organisations, has submitted a report to the United Nations challenging DfID’s support for privatisation in education in developing countries. The press release can be read here. Click here to email DfID to ask them to stop funding private companies exploiting the education market in Africa and Asia.

The NUT and a number of organisations support UN reports challenging DfID's support for privatisation in education in developing countries. A document summarising the report's findings can be found here.

The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP)
NUT policy is outright opposition to TTIP. It is part of a new wave of corporate trade deals to increase global inequality, undermine democracy and hand public service provision to multinational companies. Corporations would be able to sue governments and take away their sovereignty to make decisions for the benefit of their own people.

Global Education 'Reform': Building Resistance and Solidarity
In collaboration with the Teacher Solidarity website, the NUT released a book called Global Education 'Reform': building resistance and solidarity, edited by National Executive member Gawain Little. Download a copy here.
Iran: Release teacher union leader Esmail Abdi

On 22 February, Esmail Abdi, leader of the Tehran branch of the Iranian Teachers' Trade Association, was sentenced to six years imprisonment by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Court. This is eight months after he was arrested while en route to Armenia to obtain a travel visa to attend Education International's World Congress. Abdi was charged with "gathering and colluding with intent to harm public order" and "propaganda against the system." Click here to call for the immediate and unconditional release of Esmail Abdi.
Bahrain – Free Mahdi!

Mahdi Abu Dheeb is a prisoner of conscience, held solely for peacefully exercising his rights to freedom of expression and assembly. This is Mahdi’s fourth year in prison, and he is being denied the medical treatment he urgently needs. Mahdi’s health is deteriorating. Take action and call on the Bahrain authorities to allow Mahdi to receive his medication and to release him immediately and unconditionally.

The NUT along with some of the largest trade unions in the UK has signed a statement condemning British failure to act over repression in Bahrain. Click here to read the full statement.
Petition: abducted Nigerian schoolgirls

More than 200 Nigerian schoolgirls were recently abducted from their boarding school and are reported to be eventually sold as brides for $12 each. Call on all world leaders and enabled parties to rescue them. Sign the “Bring Back Our Girls” petition to show your support for the safe return of the missing girls and protection of education for all Nigerian children.
Israel and Palestine

I mean why is not say for example sassy, say the campaign to end forced marriages of child brdies?

Or does again the equality of children conflict with allowing your brain to function correctly, that you place the plight of countless young girls being protected by any for of human rights?
Tell me how you can explain to the forum, where only recently. in Pakistan, the religious leaders their voted against making the such acts criminal and punishable by law?
Do you even then place children as of secondary importance, to your continue need to defend islam? the very doctrine, that is upholding and endorsing the abuse of children,?
