Gaza Genocide Promoter Baroness Cox – Dundee University Must Withdraw Honorary Degree 218

Baroness Cox is a prominent supporter of organisations which actively and openly promote the ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians from Gaza. She was incredibly given an Honorary Degree by the University of Dundee in 2006. I call on the students and academic staff of Dundee University to campaign to have this award stripped from her.

It is a matter of shame to me that my University has honoured a woman whose primary political activity is as a promoter of genocide.

Baroness Cox’s support for the ethnic cleansing of Palestinians is persistent and consistent. She is the deputy head of the Presidium of the Jerusalem Summit, an organisation which states that:

“The establishment of a Palestinian state must be removed from the political agenda”

The Jerusalem Summit calls for the deportation of all Palestinians from Gaza.

This is not an accidental association of Baroness Cox. She also is a key member of the Israeli Institute of Strategic Studies, which also calls prominently for the ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians from Gaza:

“The only durable solution requires dismantling Gaza, humanitarian relocation of the non-belligerent Arab population, and extension of Israeli sovereignty over the region.”

This is not an issue of freedom of speech. Genocide is in process in Gaza today. To support genocide is not a legitimate academic position within the realm of free debate. Dundee University must end its honouring of Baroness Cox, or be seen as endorsing the legitimacy of her views, which all decent people find obnoxious.

    Baa! Humbug and Baroness Handbag seem to be on the same message. ISIS and IDF seem to be on the same message. Target everybody.

    Once you have removed the individual right of privacy, and listened to derogatory things said about you in that privacy, it’s very easy to conclude that your enemies are about to overwhelm you.

    Whoever is dirty enough to try to spy on the privacy of others, is definitely going to have to eat shit. The sin of spying degrades everyone who engages in it. It makes them feel indignant to hear insults that were uttered in private, as private solace between victims.

    This thread of hatred which leads to support for reprisals will continue to grow even to the extent of murder and genocide, so long as those in power use spying as a tool of control. Like all sins it poisons the individual’s own soul.

    That poison soon burns the mind into psychosis. Thinks: “I have evidence that these evil swine have been plotting in secret against us. I have documented evidence!!!”

    What is psychosis? When you are mad but you don’t know it.
    such as South African Apartheid, or Israeli apartheid.

    Islam is submission to God, but the psychosis of genocide comes from a desire for control over destiny combined with the means of achieving it, intelligence and weaponry.

    There is a place for lost souls, hell, a place for those whose desire for control was a sign of their refusal to submit to God.

    Baroness Cox, an honoured peer of the UK, calling for genocide of an oppressed people on the edge of survival, is a symptom of the social and moral wreckage of Thatcherism. It is the logical result of Thatcher’s desire to extinguish socialism and the principle of caring for other-than-the self.

    It is pitiful to witness those who bought into this morally-spineless message declining into rambling psychosis, but there it is, Thatcher’s legacy of hate.

    Zionism is racism. Could it be fascist? Could those who succor Zionism be racist; fascist?

    If Zionism is fascism, then the UK/US untethered support for Israel/Zionism is fascist.

    The General Assembly,

    Recalling its resolution 1904 (XVIII) of 20 November 1963, proclaiming the United Nations Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, and in particular its affirmation that “any doctrine of racial differentiation or superiority is scientifically false, morally condemnable, socially unjust and dangerous” and its expression of alarm at “the manifestations of racial discrimination still in evidence in some areas in the world, some of which are imposed by certain Governments by means of legislative, administrative or other measures”,

    Recalling also that, in its resolution 3151 G (XXVIII) of 14 December 1973, the General Assembly condemned, inter alia, the unholy alliance between South African racism and zionism,

    Taking note of the Declaration of Mexico on the Equality of Women and Their Contribution to Development and Peace 1975, proclaimed by the World Conference of the International Women’s Year, held at Mexico City from 19 June to 2 July 1975, which promulgated the principle that “international co-operation and peace require the achievement of national liberation and independence, the elimination of colonialism and neo-colonialism, foreign occupation, zionism, apartheid and racial discrimination in all its forms, as well as the recognition of the dignity of peoples and their right to self-determination”,

    Taking note also of resolution 77 (XII) adopted by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the Organization of African Unity at its twelfth ordinary session, held at Kampala from 28 July to 1 August 1975, which considered “that the racist regime in occupied Palestine and the racist regime in Zimbabwe and South Africa have a common imperialist origin, forming a whole and having the same racist structure and being organically linked in their policy aimed at repression of the dignity and integrity of the human being”,

    Taking note also of the Political Declaration and Strategy to Strengthen International Peace and Security and to Intensify Solidarity and Mutual Assistance among Non-Aligned Countries, adopted at the Conference of Ministers for Foreign Affairs of Non-Aligned Countries held at Lima from 25 to 30 August 1975, which most severely condemned zionism as a threat to world peace and security and called upon all countries to oppose this racist and imperialist ideology,

    Determines that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination.

  • girl's so knackered she farts dust, let's do the kind thing

    This is a common problem, washed-up celebrities duped to defend the indefensible. The traditional remedy for her ilk is the Ezra Pound gambit – when the war breaks out, put her in a loony bin. Or in her case, perhaps a locked dementia ward in some nursing home.

    What’s that – war won’t break out? Don’t be silly, of course it will. Bibi and his genocidaires wouldn’t think twice about starting a nuclear war. When you’re implicated in serious crimes of concern to the international community, armageddon’s just what the doctor ordered. Escalating confrontation and mobilization lets officials suppress rule of law at home. What does Bibi care? He’ll be emerging from the hollow mountain in Virginia when it’s over. It’s you who’ll be a shadow on a chunk of concrete. That’s all quite traditional too. When South Africa hit the wall, the white supremacists pursued that option, with Israel’s enthusiastic help.

    Perception is reality. And as we all agree on some fractures of reality (I sometimes wonder how we seem all to agree the sky is blue) there are those specially colored cray-ons we employ to shape the world as we see it. Sometimes we’re successful by accident. We chose the color someone else chose for that hyacinth blue! Synchronicity! That’s addicting. To be in rhythm with those around us is a common and not altogether negative attraction. But like all good things used in excess, sometimes have bad results. That’s why we have so many argumentarians like me, seeking to disrupt the harmony to get a different result

    But back to the point; We all have different perceptions of the same observed event (witnesses to a crime) and they seem to suggest
    that we actively seek to perceive events accurately, but often that perception is abetted by the need to be part of the group, and thusly influences not just the investigation, or lack therof , but in reality THE OUTCOME HAS BEEN CHANGED BY YOU.

    Of course it doesn’t matter if you take no action, or you take action. Either way, you have influenced, or shaped history.

    I’m not much interested in “Islamophobe” like Baroness Cox. She told Israeli audience in April 2004: “Islam is using democracy to destroy it”. If had studied the democratic process in Iran from some objective source, she would have found out that Iranian “democracy” is far better than Israeli “democracy”.

    Well, Israelis have Baroness Cox – and Palestinians have Baroness Tonge.

    The mad men of The Kirya* in Tel Aviv and their Hannibal Directive.

    Kill, kill, kill, even their own soldiers if it comes to that.

    Israel Murders IDF Soldier to Prevent His Capture

    About which Gilad writes:

    ‘Silverstein writes, “The Hannibal Directive embraces a fascist perspective in which the individual is subsumed within the mass. He has no specific individual value unless he is serving the interest of the nation. And his interests may, when necessary be sacrificed to the greater good.” Silverstein is addressing the issue from an ethical perspective within the spirit of enlightenment. But Zionism and Jewish nationalism are inherently anti-enlightenment ideologies. Zionism denotes the birth of the ‘Jewish people,’ the idea that every Jew is an integral part of a larger collective with clear tribal interests that outweigh the individual. Accordingly, in an extreme situation, the interests of the tribe are far more important than the individual rights. The Hannibal Directive is a glimpse into the depth of the Jewish collective bond and tribal commitment. It exposes the level of commitment and sacrifice expected of tribal members.

    Silverstein identifies the directive as fascist, but he should remember that Zionism predates Fascism and unlike Fascism that was largely defeated, Zionism has so far prevailed.’

    Whilst there, have a look and listen to his new YT which launches his album Songs of the Metropolis. A rounded man with humanity and love for his fellow man in his heart.

    So Genocide is acceptable in Iraq as long as it is by Muslims to Christians but is unacceptable in Palestine if it is by Jews to Muslims? Does this mean that if Christians around the world were to stand up for themselves as does Israel they would be worthy of scorn too?

    What a twisted argument. We are ALL humans. No killing of another is acceptable.

    There are Christians in Gaza and the remnants of Palestine.

    Gaza’s Christians bury their first casualty of the war
    By John Davison | AFP – Sun, Jul 27, 2014.

    Gaza City (Palestinian Territories) (AFP) – Jalila Ayyad’s widower George still had a black eye and bloodstains on his shirt as he processed ahead of her coffin, hours after the air strike that destroyed their home.

    Jalila, 60, was the first Christian casualty of a bloody Gaza war.
    Dwindling Christian community –

    A relative, George Ayyad, agreed wholeheartedly. He dismissed the idea that Jalila’s death would force more of the already dwindling Christian population out of Gaza.

    “If we leave, that’s exactly what the Israelis want. Anyway, where are we supposed to go? This is my homeland,” he said.

    “We Christians have been in Gaza for more than 1,000 years, and we’re staying.”

    Her nephew Fuad was not so sure.

    “Things like this make me want to just get out of here,” he said.

    Gaza’s Christians have dwindled in number to around 1,500, most of them Greek Orthodox, out of a predominantly Sunni Muslim population of 1.7 million in the densely packed enclave.

    The Christian community in Gaza City, like its counterparts elsewhere in the Middle East, has been shrinking because of both conflict and unemployment.

    The ancient Mediterranean seafront city once had a thriving Christian community, especially under British-mandated Palestine that ended in 1948 with the creation of the Jewish state.

    She is also survived by two sons, but one could not be at her funeral because he is in hospital with serious wounds suffered in Sunday afternoon’s Israeli strike.


  • Ba'al Zevul (With Gaza)

    Good question.

    Incidentally, two wrongs don’t make a right. And much of the horror inflicted by Islamist bigots on their neighbours (no different in kind or degree from the last three weeks in Gaza) has its direct origins in Western interference in the region – which, you will recall involved the very, very Christian Bush and Blair being told by God to wreck Iraq on false pretences. Standing up for themselves, as they would say.

    You may find more talking points in Hasbara 101, Lecture #4, next week.

  • fred

    “So Genocide is acceptable in Iraq as long as it is by Muslims to Christians…”

    I don’t recall anyone saying that, who has voiced that opinion?

    I thought consensus was that ISIS is part of the USA/Israel/Saudi Axis of Evil.

  • doug scorgie

    Ask Jim Murphy MP where he stands on this issue.

    “Looking at this crisis most sensible people know that Israel, like all democratic nations, has a right to self-defence and should never have to live with persistent, daily rocket attacks aimed at random and mass killings of civilians. As Barack Obama has said, the path to the end of this conflict begins when the rockets from Gaza cease. Those who are most critical of Israel should ask how our country or any democracy would respond to regular rocket fire.”

  • Ba'al Zevul (With Gaza)

    Have to wonder how Murphy would feel if the government rounded up hundreds of members of the (terrorist) Labour Party on the basis of no evidence, following an unsolved murder of three Tory kids? Wonder how he’d feel if the Tories nicked his house and gave it to an Old Etonian?
    A little irritated, maybe? Would that irritation increase or decrease after forty years of exactly the same shit, without legal redress?

    Think he’d be reaching for the steel pipe and the weedkiller, personally…

  • craig Post author


    “Have to wonder how Murphy would feel if the government rounded up hundreds of members of the (terrorist) Labour Party on the basis of no evidence”

    That’s a simple one. He would be offering to turn informant, and if that didn’t work looking for a position as a camp guard.

  • Ba'al Zevul (With Gaza)

    Yeah, sorry, Craig. You’re quite right. Must stop seeing the nonexistent good in people.


  • sjb

    Is ISIS (ISIL) likely to become an actor in the Israeli/Palestine conflict or do you think they will concentrate on consolidating their efforts on establishing a stronghold in Iraq?

  • Tony_0pmoc

    Would Craig Murray trust Britain’s Air Accidents Investigation Branch to tell the truth…because those Flight Recorders may well reveal even more compelling evidence. I think I probably would – if they are allowed to – even considering what happened to David Kelly.

    I take Veterans Today with a pinch of salt – cos some of the stuff on there is blatant nonsense…but some of it is true…

    Evidence can of course be fabricated…but this high definition photograph (which even that could have been faked) is rather revealing….as well as the detailed analysis.

    Proves nothing of course – and the propaganda is overwhelming…but take a look at this. Obviously no direct connection to Baroness Cox – and the rest of this insanity – but the timing and history – and coincidences are getting rather compelling…and in the overall scheme of things – we should examine the crime scene forensically, as well as examining the motivations of the various suspects.

    “So Genocide is acceptable in Iraq as long as it is by Muslims to Christians but is unacceptable in Palestine if it is by Jews to Muslims?”

    Genocide is not acceptable anywhere Jonny no matter who carries it out. I see you have a deficiency in the logic department, which is exacerbated by your obvious racism.


    “Does this mean that if Christians around the world were to stand up for themselves as does Israel they would be worthy of scorn too?”


    Israel is not, repeat, NOT standing up for itself. It is the Palestinians in Gaza that are standing up for themselves; Israel wants their land; do those in Gaza not have a right to fight back?

    Israel is a rouge state that was created through the Genocide of Palestinians. But this Zionist entity is not finished yet, as they still covet the lands of Gaza and the West Bank (Eretz Yisrael).

    Have a nice day
