Labour peer apologises over Jewish slur

A peer suspended from the Labour Party over allegations that he blamed a Jewish conspiracy for his dangerous driving jail term has ''completely and unreservedly'' apologised for his comments.

Lord Ahmed is said to have been caught on camera blaming his prison sentence - for sending text messages shortly before his car was involved in a fatal crash - on pressure placed on the courts by Jews ''who own newspapers and TV channels''.

In an interview with the Huffington Post he has rowed back from the comments, describing them as ''completely wrong'' and ''unacceptable''.

The peer said he could not believe the video when he saw it and said the statement was the product of a ''twisted mind'', according to the website.

Lord Ahmed added that he did not ''really have any explanation or excuse'' for why he made the comments and said he was ''embarrassed''.

''I only believe in facts and to be honest I should have stuck with the facts rather than with conspiracy theories,'' he told The Huffington Post.

According to the website he also apologised for embarrassing Labour leader Ed Miliband. ''He's of the Jewish faith and I'm sorry that I embarrassed him - or anybody else in the Labour Party.

''I'm particularly sorry to all my colleagues in the House of Lords and in the House of Commons because one thing many of them know is that I'm not anti-Semitic or a conspiracy theorist.''

Lord Ahmed told the Press Association today that he stood by the comments and repeated his apology.

The Muslim peer was suspended from the Labour party earlier this month after The Times obtained video of an Urdu-language broadcast in Pakistan in which he discussed the decision to sentence him at Sheffield Crown Court, rather than a magistrates' court with lesser sentencing powers.

He allegedly said: ''My case became more critical because I went to Gaza to support Palestinians. My Jewish friends who own newspapers and TV channels opposed this.''

Lord Ahmed was suspended from the Labour Party for three months last year over reports that he offered a 10 million-dollar ''bounty'' for the capture of US President Barack Obama and his White House predecessor, George Bush. The peer denied having made the comments, published in a Pakistani newspaper, and was reinstated after an investigation by Labour Lords Chief Whip Lord Bassam.

Pakistan-born property developer Lord Ahmed, 55, joined the Labour Party in his teens and was made a life peer in 1998.

In 2009 he was jailed for 12 weeks for dangerous driving after sending and receiving text messages minutes before his car crashed into a stationary vehicle on the M1 near Sheffield on Christmas Day 2007.

Comment from a friend:

Lord Ahmed is a labour member of the House of Lords in the UK. A fortnight ago, the London Times found a pakistani TV clip in which he blamed Jews for the fact that he was convicted of dangerous driving. A man died as a result of ahmed driving into a stationary car, and ahmed was found to be sending text messages up to 2 minutes before the incident.

A useful admission arose from lord Ahmed's interview today, in which he apologised for blaming a 'Jewish conspiracy' for his conviction. 

Belatedly, and very interestingly, we have an admission by lord Ahmed's muslim interviewer that yasser arafat's platform was based on lies. Sooner or later, the West will realise that this also applies to arafat's political heirs, who are continuing the modus operandi of that part of the world.

Ahmed's interviewer Mehdi Hasan wrote: "Some of his critics would argue that Ahmed has, Yasser-Arafat-style, a habit of telling a British non-Muslim audience one thing in one language and a Pakistani Muslim audience something else in another."

Muslim Terrorism Count

Thousands of Deadly Islamic Terror Attacks Since 9/11

Mission Overview

Most Western societies are based on Secular Democracy, which itself is based on the concept that the open marketplace of ideas leads to the optimum government. Whilst that model has been very successful, it has defects. The 4 Freedoms address 4 of the principal vulnerabilities, and gives corrections to them. 

At the moment, one of the main actors exploiting these defects, is Islam, so this site pays particular attention to that threat.

Islam, operating at the micro and macro levels, is unstoppable by individuals, hence: "It takes a nation to protect the nation". There is not enough time to fight all its attacks, nor to read them nor even to record them. So the members of 4F try to curate a representative subset of these events.

We need to capture this information before it is removed.  The site already contains sufficient information to cover most issues, but our members add further updates when possible.

We hope that free nations will wake up to stop the threat, and force the separation of (Islamic) Church and State. This will also allow moderate Muslims to escape from their totalitarian political system.

The 4 Freedoms

These 4 freedoms are designed to close 4 vulnerabilities in Secular Democracy, by making them SP or Self-Protecting (see Hobbes's first law of nature). But Democracy also requires - in addition to the standard divisions of Executive, Legislature & Judiciary - a fourth body, Protector of the Open Society (POS), to monitor all its vulnerabilities (see also Popper). 
1. SP Freedom of Speech
Any speech is allowed - except that advocating the end of these freedoms
2. SP Freedom of Election
Any party is allowed - except one advocating the end of these freedoms
3. SP Freedom from Voter Importation
Immigration is allowed - except where that changes the political demography (this is electoral fraud)
4. SP Freedom from Debt
The Central Bank is allowed to create debt - except where that debt burden can pass across a generation (25 years).

An additional Freedom from Religion is deducible if the law is applied equally to everyone:

  • Religious and cultural activities are exempt from legal oversight except where they intrude into the public sphere (Res Publica)"
