Men convicted of race hate crimes

Two men have been convicted of publishing "obnoxious and abhorrent" racist material.
Simon Sheppard, 51, of Brook Street, Selby, and Stephen Whittle, 41, of Avenham Lane, Preston, have been found guilty of a number of offences.
A trial at Leeds Crown Court heard they printed leaflets and controlled websites featuring racist material.
The pair, who are currently in the hands of US immigration authorities, will be sentenced in March.

Sheppard and Whittle were originally convicted of race-hate offences at a trial in July last year.
At an earlier hearing, Sheppard was found guilty of 11 offences and Whittle was found guilty of five offences.
The jury was unable to agree a verdict on a further seven charges against Sheppard and it was decided he would face a retrial on six of these charges.
The retrial began on 8 December and concluded on Thursday.
It was held in the absence of Sheppard as he and Whittle fled to America before the jury returned verdicts in the first trial.
The court heard the investigation into Sheppard began when a complaint about a leaflet called "Tales of the Holohoax" was reported to the police in 2004 after it was pushed through the door of a Synagogue in Blackpool.
It was traced back to a post office box in Hull registered to Sheppard.
Pen name
Reviewing lawyer Mari Reid, of the CPS's Counter Terrorism Division, said: "People are entitled to hold racist and extreme opinions which others may find unpleasant and obnoxious.
"What they are not entitled to do is to publish or distribute those opinions to the public in a threatening, abusive or insulting manner either intending to stir up racial hatred or in circumstances where it is likely racial hatred will be stirred up.
"The vast majority of the material in this case concerned Jewish people, but there was also material relating to black, Asian and non-white people generally, all described in derogatory terms using offensive language.
"As well as printed leaflets, there was evidence of Simon Sheppard controlling websites which featured racist material, some of it written by Whittle, under the pen name of Luke O'Farrell."
The pair were charged with publishing racially inflammatory material, distributing racially inflammatory material and possessing racially inflammatory material with a view to distribution.
Mrs Reid said: "Both juries saw some thoroughly unpleasant material which contained views which most people would find obnoxious and abhorrent."

The office of Rep. Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-Texas) confirmed Wednesday that she will introduce the federal hate crimes bill into Congress. During the past 2 congresses, she has done so during the first week in January.

If you have been hesitant to begin protest calling, thinking the hate bill might not be introduced, then wait no longer. There is great advantage to protesting NOW, before an avalanche of other bills vies for the attention of super-busy members of Congress. Most of the great battles of history were won by those who took war to the enemy, not waiting until war came to them.

Call toll free 1-877-851-6437 or toll 1-202-225-3121. Tell your elected representatives: "Please don't vote for the federal hate crime bill. Hate laws have taken away freedom in Canada and many European countries." [List of Members of Congress and Phone Numbers to Reach Them]

To keep defeating the hate bill, we must become educated concerning its sinister misrepresentations and consequences. Now you and your friends can do that in only ten minutes! Watch my powerfully persuasive, ten-minute video Hate Bill Lies: Exposed!.

Of course, we cannot succeed without God's help. But the practical secret to defeat the hate bill right now is to create discussion and controversy about it on Capitol Hill. Pro-hate bill Democrats don't want such discussion and investigation. They want to quietly, swiftly move it through the House and Senate Judiciary Committees without hearings, and then to votes on the floors.

Nor can we count on open, even-handed discussion by the big liberal media. The media wants to distract or lull us to sleep while the Democrats sneak through the hate bill. This is exactly what happened in Canada in 1971. Result: now in Canada it is a federal crime to quote Bible criticisms of homosexuality from the pulpit or airwaves. Penalty: at least $5000 initial fine, with prison if such criticisms are repeated.

Never has a more dangerous bill come before Congress -- legislation that will quickly move us into a Canadian-style bureaucracy and Gestapo run by thought police and homosexual informers. Only you and thousands like you can create the necessary controversy to slow down hate bill passage.

Be sure of one thing: The homosexual lobby is already orchestrating massive calling to Congress to pass the hate bill. Do we at least equal the zeal of sodomites as we protest this theft of freedom?

God and the people defeated the hate bill five times over the past ten years. This proves we have changed history and can change it again.

Absolutely disgraceful decision!

What do you expect when The Judiciary is crammed full of Freemasons who serve as henchmen for their Zionist Talmudic masters operating out of the City of London.

Will any of the Synagogue of Satan - the Zionist Talmudic Militarists - responsible for the barbaric carnage being inflicted on the defenceless Palestinians be hauled before the International Court for committing War Crimes? I very much doubt it?

Admit Israel to NATO, says German caucus
January 8, 2009

BERLIN (JTA ) -- A German political party's Jewish caucus has called on Germany and the European Union to admit Israel into NATO.

In light of the escalating conflict between Israel and Hamas, the Caucus of Jewish Social Democrats wants Germany and the E.U. to adopt North Atlantic Treaty Organization security guarantees for Israel and to consider gradual admission of Israel into the defense organization.

NATO "must take military responsibility, coordinated with Israel and the Palestinian Authority, through stationing foreign troops with an international mandate," according to the statement signed by Jewish caucus founders Peter Feldman and Sergey Lagodinsky.

In the statement issued Wednesday, the caucus -- affiliated with the Social Democratic Party -- called the suffering of Palestinian and Israeli civilians "a human catastrophe and step backwards for all who strive towards a lasting peace in the region." It called on "Hamas and other Palestinian terror groups (to) immediately and permanently halt their rocket attacks on Israel."

The caucus added that the "hate campaign against Israel and Jews around the world must stop."

There have been increasing calls among some in Europe for closer ties between Israel and NATO, whose members are committed to defend each other against external attacks.

Israel recently helped NATO prepare regional intelligence reports, and also cooperated with the organization to prevent weapons smuggling and support the war on terror. But NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer told Israeli reporters in early December that the organization was not looking to defend Israel militarily.

The Jewish caucus statement came as pro-Israel activists in Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich prepared rallies for Jan. 11. The day of solidarity with Israel follows two weeks of anti-Israel protests that drew thousands of people to the streets.

Organizers of the Jan. 11 pro-Israel rally in Berlin told JTA they have support from all mainstream political parties, the Jewish community and non-Jewish supporters of Israel, including the German-Israel Society.

Simon & Stephen are looking at long sentences when they are finally sent back to England. They should have tried to seek asylum in Iran, where the authorities would have been sympathetic, I'm sure Lady Renouf would have put a good word in for them?

Funny you should mention NATO!

European Jewish Press (03/Dec/2008) - NATO and Israel to boost anti-terror cooperation, military exercises -
'BRUSSELS (EJP)---NATO and Israel will boost their cooperation in security, counter-terrorism, intelligence exchanges and in joint military exercises.
The NATO Council, which groups the Foreign Ministers of the Alliance of 26 countries from North America and Europe, ratified Tuesday in Brussels the Individual Cooperation Programme (ICP) during the visit of Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni to the organisation’s headquarters.

The ICP signed by NATO and Israel in October 2006 was updated to reinforce it, a NATO official said.

The commander-in-chief of the Israeli army, Lieutenant-General Gaby Ashkenazi, visited the NATO headquarters two weeks ago.

Tzipi Livni welcomed the boosting of political and security ties between her country and the alliance.

"Israel's defense capabilities are world-famous, and we see the boosting of cooperation between Israel and international security bodies as a strategic goal that adds to Israel's strength,” she declared.

"All of the free nations of the world who understand the nature of the terrorist threat recognize the need to form a united front against it.”

The agreement to reinforce the cooperation “signifies genuine recognition of Israel's special contribution to the international fight against extremism."

The Israeli Foreign Minister met at NATO with counterparts from NATO and Arab nations in the framework of the organisation’s Mediaterranean Dialogue.

This body was launched in 1994 and includes today seven states: Israel, Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Mauritania, Tunisia and Algeria.'

TV Networks REFUSE to air Obama citizenship ad

New York, NY -- Not only have courts throughout the USA aided and abetted the usurpation of the Presidency by refusing to hear cases challenging the citizenship of Barack Obama, now, major media is doing the same thing.

National TV networks that refused to sell time for a 60-second commercial included CNBC , MSNBC, Headline News, CNN and Fox. Washington, D.C., local stations for the same organizations also refused.

In my opinion, the networks and courts are together engaged in what might be viewed as an ongoing criminal conspiracy to aid and abet an ineligible person in becoming President of the USA.

Counter terrorism?????

Is this what the tax shekels are being spent on????

As for the chap who suggested asylum in Iran -- but surely they are the No 1 threat to world peace [copyright BNP Kosher Newsteam]?

I'd laugh - but it's no laughing matter!!

It seems that we're free... but not even free to shake our chains too loudly!

George Orwell offered writers' blacklist to anti-Soviet propaganda unit,
by Richard Norton-Taylor and Seumas Milne, The Guardian (UK), (posted here at Net Charles), July 11, 1996
"George Orwell's letter to Celia Kirwan of Whitehall's secret Information Research Department (6-4-1949):
I read the enclosed article with interest, but it seems to me anti-religious rather than anti-semitic. For what my opinion is worth, I don't think anti-anti-semitism is a strong card to play in anti-Russian propaganda. The USSR must in practice be somewhat anti-semitic, as it is opposed both to Zionism within its own borders and on the other hand to the liberalism and internationalism of the non-Zionist Jews, but a polyglot state of that kind can never be officially anti-semitic, in the Nazi manner, just as the British Empire cannot. If you try to tie up Communism with anti-semitism, it is always possible in reply to point to people like Kaganovich or Anna Pauleer, also to the large number of Jews in the Communist parties everywhere. I also think it is bad policy to try to curry favour with your enemies. The Zionist Jews everywhere hate us and regard Britain as the enemy, more even than Germany. Of course this is based on misunderstanding, but as long as it is so I do not think we do ourselves any good by denouncing anti-semitism in other nations. I am sorry I can't write a better letter, but I really have felt so lousy the last few days. Perhaps a bit later I'll get some ideas.
With love,
George

Virtually anybody who was anybody has been called an "anti-Semite," sooner or later. Including Orwell.

The Cold War Controversy,
by Paul Foot, Socialist Review, July/August 2003
"Orwell got a job with Tribune where he wrote a weekly column full of unorthodoxy. All the staff there were supporters of Zionism, but not Orwell. He opposed it for the effect it would have on the people living in Palestine, and of course was denounced then and later for being anti-Semitic."

Down and Out in Paris and London, [Full Review]
Epinions, November 16, 2004
"Orwell is a hero to many people nowadays because of his writing. Both his journalism and his creative work are an open attack on the political and economic systems which exploited the poor and deprived them of their liberty. It is a bit of a shock therefore to see that he was not free from the anti-Semitism so common in Europe in the first half of the twentieth century. The Jews are the villains of many of the anectodes from Paris and when describing a coffee-shop in Tower Hill, London he says: "In a corner by himself a Jew, muzzle down in the plate, was guiltily wolfing bacon (133)". No other group is written about in this fashion."(Opps that would get you nicked to day.)

If "bigotry" is grounds for criminal action via the world's expanding "anti-hate" laws, then such laws must be fairly turned on the "hating" Jewish community that invented them.

What is permissible to whom?

In comparison with the statements of the accused Russian patriots, much more aggressive statements by Jews regarding non-Jews are printed in Jewish newspapers published in the Russian Federation. For example, in the organ of the Russian Jewish Congress, ‘Yevreyskie novosti’ (2002, No. 16, page 9) the Knesset deputy A. Lieberman called for the forcible expulsion of the Palestinians from Israel. Accordingly the Palestinians – in violation of UN Security Council resolutions! – are not only thrown out of their homeland (4 million refugees), but their activists are murdered along with their families. Thus does the Shulkhan Arukh show up in the state policy of Israel.

And the Jews of the Russian Federation support it. The Russian Jewish Congress states that one of its aims is “to conduct actions of solidarity with the people of Israel, carrying out political lobbying for the interests of Israel” (Yevreyskie novosti, 2002 No. 15, p. 5). The same goal is also pursued by the state Institute for the Study of Israel and the Near East, the leader of which, Yevgeny Satanovsky, simultaneously headed the Russian Jewish Congress.

Jewish communities all over the world carry out similar “political lobbying” for the interests of international Jewry to the detriment of the interests of the countries in which they live, and particularly in the USA. That state has become an instrument for the attainment of the global aims of Jewry. And they try to mask the racism of their Shulkhan Arukh by slapping the charge of anti-Semitism (i.e., allegedly racial hatred) on all those who do not agree with their morality, their activities, their wars.

But such a reversal of concepts is a crude forgery, as should be clear to any impartial judge. One can say that the whole democratic world today has fallen under the financial and political control of international Jewry, of which eminent bankers (Jacques Attali and others) are openly proud. And we do not see it as desirable that our Russia, against whose revival a permanent preventive war without rules is being conducted, should wind up among such unfree countries.

Therefore we, both in order to protect our fatherland and for personal self-defense, are forced to turn to you, Mr. Procurator General, with the imperative request that within the shortest period you verify the scandalous facts presented above and, if they are confirmed, on the basis of the corresponding articles of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation’s Law “on opposing extremist activity” (2002) and article 13 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation (“the creation and activity of public associations, the aim of which is directed towards kindling social, racial, national, and religious discord are prohibited”) to officially institute proceedings for the prohibition in our country of all religious and national Jewish associations as extremist. We also request that persons responsible for assigning to these associations state and municipal property, privileges, and state financing, be called to account, regardless of the posts they occupy.

The Fable of the Little Old Man and the Ugly Incident of
Anti-Semitism

The bearded gentleman entered the outdoor market and strolled past the stalls stacked with merchandise, his one hand gently squeezing the other behind his back. Neatly dressed, he sported spectacles and a hat that implied wealth and high station. Occasionally he paused to stare in silence at a piece of fruit or article of clothing, though he made no attempt to communicate with the merchants. The old man slowly made his way towards a distant stall that was isolated from the others, and he approached the girl working there behind a display of fruits and vegetables. He came to a stop in front of boxes stocked with apples, and he bent forward, directing his face, suddenly twisted in malice, towards the girl. Their eyes locked, and the old man bared his teeth, hissing: “Why do you hate Jews?” A mixture of terror and amusement filled her eyes. “What are Jews?” she asked innocently, pulling back from him behind her boxes of peppers and oranges. The old man drew himself up in stiff dignity, straightened his black coat and left the market in silence.

The next morning the old gentleman returned, and he made his way towards the display of produce at the edge of the market. He found the girl alone again. Stopping before her stall, he leaned forward and squared his face with hers. This time he implored, his voice little more than a whisper: “Why do you hate Jews?” And she responded in puzzlement: “Who are the Jews?” The old man shook his head as if in great pain, and silently he walked away. On the third morning he returned to the market. He showed no interest in the bread or pastries, in shoes, socks or trinkets. As he had done on the previous mornings, the gentleman made his way past the other stalls towards the young girl with fruits and vegetables. He stopped before a pile of onions, and bringing his face near hers, he repeated his question in a kindly voice that was now familiar to her: “Why do you hate Jews?” She pursed her lips, and after half a minute of silence she replied softly: “I am trying to understand why we hate the Jews.”

Her words transformed him. The old man spun around so quickly that both of his feet left the ground. When he came to rest, his back was turned towards the girl and he faced the market. Moving his arms triumphantly about his head, he shouted for all the peddlers and market-goers to hear: “Ohhh, she admits it! They hate the Jews! They hate the Jews!” A great burden seemed to rise from the old man’s shoulders. Straightening himself up, he proudly marched away from the market, and never was he seen there again. For some unexplained reason, the vendors from that day fell on hard times, and fewer and fewer townsfolk visited that market.
(DONT YER LOVE IT) lol.

I find it strange that this same blog who attacks David Hannam so often, seems to have forgotten the fact that Hannam served time for putting out a leaflet designed by Shepard. I seem to remember comments like, Hannam should have known what he was doing was illegal or words to that effect, no sympathy at all to the fact the lad was only 17 at the time. Now you twats are all indignant over these two pricks, who really should have known better.
