THE DARK SIDE OF POLITICS: DAVID MILIBAND
We have all heard about the Labour leadership contest. While all the candidates could be described as having dodgy backgrounds, and holding views which no sane person could agree with, one candidate, Mr David Miliband, has a darker political career than most.
David Miliband, the candidate who is most likely to become the next leader of the Labour party, is also the man who knowingly allowed terror suspects to be transferred through British airspace, in order for them to be brutally tortured in third world countries, and he allowed British agents to gain information in this way.
Miliband also attempted to block public disclosure of information regarding the torture of former Guantanamo inmate Binyam Mohamed. This is the same guy, who tried to preach to the British public about ethics. Maybe we should ask ourselves, what is so ethical about hiding Britain’s involvement in torture?
Now, quite worryingly, David is also the guy who announced his intention in changing the law on “universal jurisdiction”. It was stated in the Jewish Chronicle, he was “pushing hard within Whitehall” for such a cause. He put so much of his energy and time to try and ensure that Israeli war criminals could land in Britain, and could avoid justice…..
Time and time again, this slim ball tries to preach on about how he knows what British values are; but lets be honest, his actions says otherwise… While that could be debated, one thing we can be sure of is that he surely knows what Israeli interests are, and he is doing his utmost in promoting these interests.
For instance, Miliband was listed on an Israeli propaganda site as an “Israeli Hasbara (propaganda) author”.. god knows what that is meant to mean?!….
One interesting thing is though…. On the 5th May 2010, when it was almost certain that Gordon Brown was going to be ousted out after Labour’s predicted loss at the elections and that there will be a possibly leadership contest, The Israeli hasbara site where he appeared, disappeared….Coincidence? You make you own conclusion…..
Anyway, lets carry on with her analysis of this rather sinister character… Just like Tony bLAIR, David Miliband is a keen supporter of Moral Interventionism, and therefore supports the killing of 1.5 million Iraqis, all in the name of democracy?! In 2008, Miliband maintained that spreading democracy to far off lands that have nothing at all to do with us should be a “ great progressive project; and the means need to combine both soft and hard power.”
So this raises some questions; is torture hard or soft politics? And if he such an ethical man, may I ask what is so ethical about trying to change Britain’s Universal Jurisdiction? What on earth is moral about the killing of innocent people, all in the name of democracy?
While I don’t support any of the other candidates in Labour leadership contest, out of them all, David Miliband is the most sinister of them all.
