British MP making a public address in Amman, Jordan

(H/T Mick Hartley)

Here is a transcript for the full speech:

Jerusalem is in the hands of foreigners – why? Baghdad is in the hands of foreigners – why? The Arab League wants to meet to discuss the presence of a few hundred Lebanese gunmen in Hamra Street and on the Kornish in Beirut, whilst one million gunmen from Brooklyn NY, London, Paris, and Moscow have occupied Palestinian land for 60 years. They want to discuss Hamra Street, when Al-Aqsa, from which the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, ascended to heaven, is in the hands of a foreign army – and they want to discuss Hamra Street?


"President Abd Al-Nasser, one of the greatest men of the 20th century*... President Abd Al-Nasser and Saddam Hussein will live in history long after these dogs, are forgotten. "

Saddam Hussein's greatness in still very much alive in recent memory. It's the other greatest 20th century leader that needs a bit of dusting:

Gamal abdul Nasser:

In a 1964 interview, Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser said that "No one, not even the simplest man in our country, takes seriously the lie about six million murdered Jews."

(Source: Interview with the Deutsche (Soldaten und-) National-Zeitung [Munich], May 1, 1964, p. 3. Also, quoted in part in: Robert S. Wistrich, Hitler's Apocalypse [New York: St. Martin's Press, 1986], p. 188.)


* Reminiscent of another antisemite and Hitler-admirer more recently applauded as one of the greatest figure of the twentieth century:

"when God puts you [Jews] in the ovens—it's forever!"

This is from the person described by Reverend Wright as one of the most important voices in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Is George the PM now? Maybe an MP still. I dunno.

The US Congress should never have given him a platform to spout his insanity.

Idiots of a certain political persuasion really liked his act and still do.
