Collateral Damage: Vince Fean the Wrong Target 73

The physical hassling of Vince Fean by Palestinian student activists is a mistake. Vince is not only an extremely decent man, but his private views are of horror at the occupation, and as Consul-General he refuses to deal with the Israelis in the West Bank.

Anger at William Hague is perfectly understandable, I feel it myself. As is anger at Matthew Gould’s repeated and uncalled for declarations of commitment to zionism. But I urge all Palestinians not to attack Vince; he is doing his best and on your side.

    I’m afraid not – we’re unlikely to speak for some time after that. Email only from now on 😉

    Thank you Mark and for all YOUR heartfelt good work and insights. I come from the reality of peace and love–not just as a cliche–but in the actual sense of Einstein’s term of a “cosmic religious feeling”. I find this fake ‘Catholic’, Babbler’s stalking and superior attitude downright despicable.

    Just so you know, i chose my alias inspired by the The Unknown Villager. Mothers and Fathers should stop sending their children to War to end up becoming another Unknown Soldier. This century, and it is early days, will be the century for justice for the Unknown Villagers who are pawns today in the power plays around the globe. There is a new generation coming that will sweep away the fossils of the likes of the Habbabkuks.

    Only 10% of us need to embrace it to reach our tipping point. But embrace it means at a genuine/authentic level–profound, from deep within so as to pull out every form of violence, including the type that Habbab practices from its very roots. To negate our violent and insecure streaks we have inherited as animals. Change our d.n.a epigenetically.

    Scientific research supports that it can be done a minority. And we can test it by getting rid of this fraud the Habbabkuk.

    Rolling in the aisle here Villager and Herbie. No nobody has been spurned AFAIK. I did once have an approach from a groper when I was a practice manager at a vets. The clients requesting a visit used to say ‘Please don’t send….’ and I used to wonder why but did not like to ask.

    One Sunday I had gone in to do some accounts and he rolled up. I am quite tall and this person came to chest height.Most unflattering. After the encounter from which I quickly extricated myself and told him where to go, he never bothered me again. Pathetic individual and his wife worked in the practice too! It happened soon after I was widowed and I should have outed him. I do not think H was the culprit.

    I have, like Herbie, queried in the past whether there is a female at work but now I do not really care as there are much more important matters. He/she is certainly working hard for whatever the going rate is these days. 🙂

    This has become a strange thread hasn’t it? Meanwhile the Palestinians are still suffering. Another day in that log that Leslie Bravery keeps. It is almost unbearable to read as you scroll through and all of it is verified.

    And for you Habbabkuk (a.k.a. ‘ONEIL’)

    Lets get the Lord’s Answer to this one:

    Habakkuk 1
    New International Version (NIV)

    1 The prophecy that Habakkuk the prophet received.

    Habakkuk’s Complaint

    2 How long, Lord, must I call for help,
    but you do not listen?
    Or cry out to you, “Violence!”
    but you do not save?
    3 Why do you make me look at injustice?
    Why do you tolerate wrongdoing?
    Destruction and violence are before me;
    there is strife, and conflict abounds.
    4 Therefore the law is paralyzed,
    and justice never prevails.
    The wicked hem in the righteous,
    so that justice is perverted.

    HOMEWORK SET–make sure you submit in time, else Six of the Best.

    “The facts are that he knows far too much about the arcane intricacies of the FCO gong system.”
    Can you link that for me please?

    “He seems to know Craig.”
    Not convinced.

    “He casually mentions seeing someone as he passes through Brussels airport.”
    I think that was LHR–John–forget his name with the disgusting moustache.

    “He delights in displaying his familiarity with western European languages, particularly, French, Italian and German”.
    Something in that.

    He knows a lot about Switzerland, where of course these three languages are spoken.
    A lot? Where does that come from?

    “But the facts as they stand, particularly the first and supported by the rest, place him as a member of a very small set which would include former and current members of the FCO, probably stationed for some time in Berne.”
    Would he survive the FCO writing 5,000,000 as 5.000.000?

    “I think too, and this is rather more speculative, that he may well be a she. There are certainly some pointers in that direction including, but not limited to, linguistic style.”
    If so, she hasn’t owned up to it given that it is a declared hetrosexual with a mail ‘handle’ and response to my comments being spurned by Mary.

    Difficult to believe a woman would stalk Mary the way this brute has.

    Thank you for sharing Mary That email you quoted earlier was touching. Lets hope they nip it in the bud. Scoundrels!

    As I understand it a diplomatic career is half way between being an apprentice to Ebenezer Scrooge and a celebrity. Wouldn’t it be nice if HMG could be introduced to a few spirits and wake up reformed. In the meantime I agree with Craig that Muslims should listen to individuals who are on their side, but I wouldn’t expect to find those individuals in the Foreign Office. I wouldn’t trust them unless they had rebelled as Craig has done and paid the price of challenging them.

    Somebody once said to me while I was going through divorce that what you need is to know where you stand with people. It’s trusting them one day and not the next which drives you crazy. The UK is like that and the nice guys in the diplomatic service are part of the problem of our being rejected by the world community as unreliable and dishonest brokers.

    “re. Villagers post, above :
    “If yo did, I’d certainly forgive him”
    But not as much as I would forgive myself, for to have had to spend my old age with the likes of Mary would be simply unbearable.”

    Most definitely vice versa, with bells on. I actually pity you.

  • Habbabkuk (La vita è bella!)

    @ Mary (09h06) :

    “I actually pity you.”

    Dare I say how ….saintly of you?

    But why? Because I’m insufficiently impressed by the Gospel of St Mary? 🙂


    La vita è bella, life is good!

    @ Fred and Craig,
    Fred, you said – “After 50 years we are no closer to solving the Palestinian problem we caused and Palestine gets smaller by the day.”
    I could rephrase that and say – “After 50 years …..the Jewish problem we caused.” Balfour declaration etc. to the present day?
    A great democracy with 4,500 Palestinians or more with:-
    A. No habeas corpus.
    B. No known or likely trial date.
    C. No way to address why or why not they should or should not be released.
    And we are all here debating the kick to the shin of a representative of a country that is culpable for the whole wretched mess that exists to this day.
    I support the resistance and – you are wrong on this one Craig Murray. Note – a mild kick to good ol’ Vince to do something meaningfully. Perfectly justified.

    P.S. Great “democracy” with 4,500 detainees indefinitely detained, and many more ostracised and disenfranchised within Isreal for reason of their ethnicity.
    It will impode – it will collapse – it will change. Aluta continua!

    Unfortunately the good that men do is oft interred with their bones, or even earlier. I think the continued hypocrisy of Britain’s warm relationship with the zionist state and its protector, while making only token gestures in the direction of the illegal settlements, transcended any rational thought here. Like it or not, a diplomat is the representative of his country, and of his country’s policy. Obviously, the aggrieved Pals should have written a courteous letter to William Hague and waited a month or two for the emollient reply. But maybe they already have. Repeatedly.
