Werritty’s Chum Gould Cheers on Gaza Genocide 103

Where is the British Ambassador to Israel Matthew Gould, who has put so much effort into promoting himself as a self-proclaimed “Jewish Zionist”? What has he to say while the people in Gaza are being massacred even as they shelter in UN facilities?

Well two days ago he was attending the swearing in of new Israeli President Rivlin, together with a British delegation of weird right wing folk, including Baroness Pauline Neville Jones, favourite “security expert” of the BBC, Stuart Polak of Conservative Friends of Israel, and New Labour public school and Oxford right winger Paul Spellar.

But surely the British Ambassador to Israel has spoken out in public about the terrible carnage in Gaza?

He most certainly has. Gould has reflected the massive indignation of the British people by stating that:

“This was a conflict triggered by Hamas raining down on Israel hundreds and hundreds of rockets fired indiscriminately at Israeli towns and cities. Israel has a right and even an obligation to defend it citizens.”

Gould paid a pro-Israeli propaganda visit to Sderot, the Israeli chosen destination for media reports about Hamas rocket attacks, and the place where Israelis hold parties to watch people being blown apart in Gaza. Gould spoke of having to take his own family into the bomb shelter in Tel Aviv when sirens sounded from Hamas attacks.

Matthew Gould was a long term collaborator of Adam Werritty, having held meetings with him over a decade in Tehran, Washington, Israel and London, at most but not all of which Liam Fox was also present. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office refuse to list these meetings or say who was present and what was discussed, even though Gould met Werritty including when Gould was Private Secretary to both David Miliband and William Hague.

I have no hesitation whatsoever in stating that what is happening in Gaza is a part of a continuing process of deliberate genocide of the Palestinian people by the Israelis. When I have previously stated this, some commenters have taken issue with the word genocide. I see no other word that fits.

This chilling article by Martin Sherman, Head of the Israeli Institute of Strategic Studies, calling for Gaza to be ethnically cleansed of all Palestinians, should open the eyes of some of those who refuse to see that Israel is no longer a morally defensible entity. The 3,600 Facebook shares of this evil are evidence of how the madness of fascism has overtaken the citizens of Israel.


This banner on Herzl Boulevard expresses what has become the catchphrase for the extermination of Palestinians “There are no innocents in Gaza“. This justification of the extermination even of women and children should evoke parallels for Jewish people which are too obvious for me to emphasise. Yet this extraordinary slogan, justifying genocide, is supported and repeated by huge sectors of the Israeli populace.

I wonder how long it will be before we hear it from Matthew Gould?

    Thanks Macky. I remember it well.

    I also remember that Caroline Thomson then COO at the BBC, who had already decided that the DEC appeal would not be aired by them, decided with Mark Damazer that Caryl Churchill’s radio play Seven Jewish Children would not be broadcast.

    The Jewish lobby piled in. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seven_Jewish_Children

    Thomson left the BBC with £670,000 and is now a non executive director of the NHS Trust Development Authority and has another niche as trustee of the National Gallery. She has feathered her own nest but let the little ones in Gaza to die and to be killed.


    Remember Tony Benn RIP here. Wonderful. 1.1million viewings.

    ‘Taste of Gaza’s siege

    It would be satisfying to write that Israelis, in experiencing a very temporary and partial air blockade, gained a little insight into the far worse conditions for Palestinians in Gaza, who have spent the past eight years under an Israeli-imposed siege, denied most contact with the outside world.

    The coastal enclave of Gaza is penned in on all sides by fences, walls and watchtowers. It has no airport or seaport because Israel destroyed them long ago. Fishermen are barely allowed to get further than shallow waters before being fired on by Israeli gunboats, while the air above Gaza is the domain of Israel’s surveillance and weaponized drones.

    The central demand Hamas has made for an acceptable ceasefire is that the siege ends and Gaza be allowed to reestablish sea and air links to the world.

    But most Israelis have appeared to make no connection between their own experience and the gnawing frustration, fear and fury of the people of Gaza at their long imprisonment. Instead, they have focused on their resentment on Hamas and the foreign airlines for inflicting on them a small inconvenience.’

    Meanwhile –
    In the last episode. Quartet representative to the Middle East Tony Blair, having marked the escalation of Israel’s onslaught on part of his area of responsibility by throwing a party and then visiting in quick succession Vietnam and China, appears to have spent the 27th and 28th in the vicinity of Los Angeles.

    Update, on the 29th, his aircraft flew from LA to Las Vegas. More if I get it. But I have to admit the imagination’s working overtime. A shopping and spending orgy for Cherie? Or a new contract to advise one of LV’s finest on governance and globalisation? Everything’s gone very quiet on the Blair front. Perhaps he has discreetly been relieved of his duties. Perhaps there is a God.

    Boiling up around the globe
    Blackened mushroom clouds of pain
    Gelid hearts and minds still plan
    Vicious violent pointless death
    Murder money poison span
    All borders, from the Gaza Strip
    Through Britain to Afghanistan
    And counterpoint crescendo of dissenting voices
    Trumpet cries of anguish, huge resistance
    Souls aching, finding tongue
    To blast these evils – wrong.

    UN Secretary General’s office doesn’t have a clue where Blair is…

    Yesterday’s noon Press briefing –

    Question: And one thing on Gaza, Tony Blair, I understand he represents the Quartet, but in previous instances, he’s been active on things like economic development; I know that now, with the power plant out, there’s no cell phone service, there’s a lot of problems, so I just wonder, what is Tony Blair doing and does he report to anyone in the Secretariat what he’s… he got an award recently from Israel that some people found was sort of badly timed. I’m just wondering what is his relationship to the UN?

    Spokesman: I think Tony Blair’s appointment remains the same, as an Envoy of the Quartet. I don’t’ have any update on his activities. If I do, I will share them with you. Rhonda?

    Correspondent: But what…

    Spokesman: Just wait two seconds. There are a lot of hands up. There’s a lot of time and we’ll come back to you, Masood.

    (He didn’t.)


    Las Vegas, Masood. See above!

    I agree that it would be interesting to know the answer to no of meetings and what was said.

  • Paul Rigby

    No different in Ukraine, I’m sad to report, where a call for the mass-murder of the inhabitants of Lugansk and Donetsk was broadcast by the Soros-US-Dutch funded Hromadske TV. It emanated from the mouth of one Bogdan Boutkevitch, who opined that we “need to kill 1.5 million people in Donbass.” Of course the common denominator behind both slaughters is Uncle Sam. If the disinvestment movement were really serious, it would be calling for a world-wide boycott of American products and services.

    “Preamble: Hromadske TV is now officially the Ukrainian version of Rwandan RTLM. Just like RTLM called for the extermination of the Tutsi, calling them Inyenzi, or cockroaches, so now Hromadske TV is legitimizing the genocide of the population of Novorossiya. From Inyenzi to Colorados, we have come full circle. Hromadske TV, this mouthpiece of Ukrainian genocide, is financed directly by US and Dutch embassies. The blood of the population of Novorossiya is on all our hands – we have allowed this to happen. Please circulate this as widely as you can and stand witness to this Holocaust.”

    Good job there Dave ‘Smoothface’ Cameron, Cleggover, Hague, Burt and your fellow moral pygmies laughingly referred to as ‘the government’.

    You know that sign isn’t so bad coming from Israelis.
    look at this video:
    They are singing, “There are is no more schools in Gaza because we killed all the children”.
    This is a political rally and this is how political parties gain votes in Israel.
