Far-Left group pays homage to arch-terrorists
On 28 September 2014, an event titled “Gaza and the Palestinian Revolution”, organised by the “Tricontinental Anti-Imperialist Platform” and “Invent the Future”, was held in London, and featured such extremist speakers as Leila Khaled, George Galloway and Saeb Shaath.
Also speaking at the event was Malia Bouattia, the ‘Black Students Officer’ of the National Union of Students (NUS).
Featured on the poster promoting the event are arch-terrorists Yasser Arafat of the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), Hassan Nasrallah of Hezbollah, and George Habash of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). Hezbollah and the PFLP are both designated terrorist organisations responsible for the mass-slaughter of innocent civilians.
One of the organisations behind the event, “Invent the Future”, runs a Marxist website that seems to exist solely to defend the reputations of virtually every anti-Western dictator in the world, including Syrian tyrant Bashar al-Assad:
“[Syria] is (or was, until the war started tearing it apart) a dignified, safe, secular, modern and moderately prosperous state … The Syrian government maintains a commitment to a strong welfare state, for example ensuring universal access to healthcare (in which area its performance has been impressive) and providing free education at all levels. It has a long-established policy of secularism and multiculturalism, protecting and celebrating its religious and ethnic diversity and refusing to tolerate sectarian hatred … So there is every reason to defend Syria. Not because it is some sort of socialist utopia, but because it is an independent, anti-imperialist, anti-zionist [sic] state that tries to provide a good standard of living for its people and which aligns itself with the progressive and counterhegemonic forces in the region and worldwide.”
Among the other speakers are George Galloway, the Hamas-financing MP who famously described Bashar al-Assad’s regime as “the last castle of Arab dignity” and told Saddam Hussein, “Sir, I salute your courage, your strength, your indefatigability”; and Saeb Shaath, a former Palestinian diplomat who is also a prominent Assad apologist and terrorist supporter.
