Over at Pickled Politics a post on Ibrahim Mousawi’s banning includes the following addition from Sunny Hundal:
I look forward to all those people screaming hysterically in support of Wilders now saying something about this too
Sunny Hundal, Pickled Politics, Mousawi barred
Which is a little peculiar. Let’s remind ourselves of the differences between Wilders and Mousawi:
- democrat, Dutch Parliamentarian, non-violent, creator of highly provacative ‘film’ Fitna
- spokesman for terrorists Hezbollah (considered terrorists by the United States, Israel, Canada, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom), who says Jews are a lesion on the forehead of history and who was banned from French television for airing a programme repeating the medieval blood libel against the Jews and quoting extensively from the Protocols of the Elders of Zion. He was banned from entering Ireland on security grounds and has been banned from entering the UK.
It’s not immediately obvious that the two have much in common and it’s not easy to see why someone objecting to the ban on a peaceful Dutch Parliamentarian must also be obliged to object to a ban on a spokesman for violent terrorism. The distinction between the two seems to elude Sunny Hundal, who also claims:
The guy doesn’t head up Hezbollah, he edits a newspaper linked to them
Of course, nobody’s claimed Mousawi heads up Hezbollah – but he certainly doesn’t just edit a newspaper. He’s an antisemitic spokesman for a terrorist organisation.
