Middle East Conflict

There’s been endless debate in the mainstream media about the ongoing campaign by Israel in the Gaza strip.

The BNP have produced their statement explaining that they don’t support either side and that the conflict has nothing to do with us.

That’s something I completely agree with.

But reading the pro Israel comments posted to the article by BNP members and supporters and reading the blogs produced by BNP branches and some of them declaring that they are ‘Friends of Israel’ makes me very concerned over the lack of knowledge about the situation by some of the party's membership.

The BNP ‘s position regarding Islam is that it has no place in Britain or white society in general but the BNP do not hate Muslims. It seems, though, that a lot of their more recent recruits do.

This disdain for Islam has clouded their judgement so that they will support anyone who fights against Muslims including the Zionist state of Israel.

I understand that Hamas militants have been firing rockets into Israel, killing Israeli citizens and that every country has the right to defend itself from terrorist attacks.

But let’s look at the situation another way.

If some Islamic extremists decided that the county of Dorset should be an independent Islamic state, a foreign government helped them create such a state and then they were backed by the military and financial might of the USA what would the displaced people of Dorset do?

They would either live as second class citizens in their home county or they would be forced to relocate to the bordering counties of Devon, Hampshire, Somerset or Wiltshire. And if they started a campaign of terror against the Islamic republic of Dorset and were firing rockets in, who could blame them?

This is exactly the situation in Palestine.

So while I can understand Israel’s need to defend its borders I can also understand why Hamas is firing rockets in.

So which side should we support? Neither.

The BNP leadership has taken the correct stance, one of neutrality and it’s time that all BNP members followed that position.

Working for the community

A nice piece in the Romford Recorder showing how a BNP councillor can achieve things for the local community.

A STRUGGLING veterinary clinic has been given a shot in the arm by a team of generous tradesmen.

The RSPCA Campbell Clinic, in Chippenham Road, Harold Hill, received a top to bottom revamp by the community action team, run by Councillor Mark Logan.

In May last year the clinic closed due to its "difficult financial position".

The Havering branch of the RSPCA told angry users of the vital service that re-opening the clinic - including refurbishing the building to an acceptable level - would cost between £100,000 to £150,000.

The make-over was made possible by generous donations from local businesses, including £400-worth of painting materials from B&Q, carpets fitted by Comet Carpets and a new £10,000 kitchen supplied and fitted by Magnet.

Cllr Logan (Gooshays, BNP), said: "We're really pleased with the way the clinic turned out.

"It is gleaming and looks like a new pin."

Consisting of a variety of tradesmen - including plumbers, electricians and carpenters - the community action team was set up to help charities, and elderly and disabled people in need in Harold Hill.

The 14-strong voluntary team is now on its 18th project in the area.

Cllr Logan said: "We're only too glad to help and the volunteers have enjoyed doing it.

"I'm quite taken aback by the success of the community action team - it's restored my faith in humanity."

An RSPCA spokesman said: "We are really pleased that after the difficulties of the last year, people have been able to get funds together and refurbish the clinic.

"We hope to be able to open soon and once again offer animal welfare services to the people of Harold Hill and their pets.

Constant Begging Letters

Am I the only BNP member to be getting sick to death of receiving the constant appeals for money?

I appreciate that the party has to raise funds but they are much too frequent. I received the Christmas appeal around the 29 December and today (3 Jan) I get the New Year appeal.

Haven't head office heard of the credit crunch!

Come on Nick, get them to send out the begging letters a little less frequently.
