On November 11, there was a ‘botched’ Israeli special forces raid near Khan Yunis in Gaza. We cannot know exactly what the mission intended, but Nour Baraka, a regional commander of the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades (military wing of Hamas) was one of those killed in the exchange of fire. Following the Israeli operation, Hamas fired over 460 rockets at Israel in twenty-five hours. When situations … Continue reading Hamas Lies and propaganda: From Gaza to the world in less than a minute
Since the recent outbreak of violence in Gaza and Israel, I have been working on research that looks at Hamas PR and the speed in which it is delivered from Gaza to global anti-Israel activists. I thought I had left Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party behind. I was wrong. Background The research is looking at ‘independent’ social media journalists in Gaza and how they … Continue reading Why are Jeremy Corbyn Facebook pages managed by Hamas puppets in Gaza?
It was a long time coming, but during the recent trip to Israel I went back to areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority. A decade ago, this type of visit would not have happened given the upsurge in violence in Gaza. Violence in one area, raised tensions in another. Since the Gaza withdrawal and the rise of Hamas, this is progressively proving to no longer … Continue reading Beyond the great divide, a trip inside the Palestinian areas
One of the reasons I won’t be criticising Israel today is because I am in London. I am not facing 40,000 rioters sent by Hamas to the Israeli border. Instead I am safely tucked away in a relatively secure part of the globe, with the armies of British enemies pushed back through centuries of brutal conflict. Even in the last two decades many have died … Continue reading Gaza, Hamas and why I won’t be criticising Israel today
It is 3pm on June 18th 2017. I am in disguise, wearing a keffiyeh that is necessary to cover my face. I want to infiltrate the Al Quds Day march and the only way I can participate is to remain unrecognised. I stand next to the terrorist flag of Hezbollah. The stewards are on the lookout for people like me, and although I am quickly … Continue reading Marching with (and stopping!) terrorist supporters in London in 2017
This story begins in Tel Aviv, not Manchester. In a few days it will be exactly sixteen years since the Dolphinarium massacre. A terror attack against a discotheque that killed 21 Israelis, 16 of them teenagers. The terrorist, Saeed Hotari, was linked to Hamas. The target: Children. On March 4 1996 two thirteen-year-old boys left their homes to go to Dizengoff Centre. They were friends … Continue reading Manchester, identifying the extremism
Arabs in Gaza are swarming social media platforms and sending private messages to pro-Palestinian activists looking for donations. Is it just one massive scam? Or are Hamas utilising social media platforms, not just to spread propaganda, but as a pipeline to raise funds for their terrorist activities? Hamas are one of the most brutal terrorist organisations on earth. Some of their attacks, such as the … Continue reading Facebook. A pipeline for funding Hamas terrorism?
I spent 7 years studying at Birkbeck in the centre of London. I took a 4-year BSc, received a distinction on a 2 year MSc and spent an additional year doing post graduate modules in Law. Last night, on 31/03/2016, my connection with the university was irrevocably shaken. I attended what had seemed like a relatively harmless event, with Palestinian documentary maker, Rawan Al-Damen promoting … Continue reading Jews and Hamas propaganda at Birkbeck
