Lecture at Middlesex University – Israeli Apartheid Week – February 23, 2012

Here is my lecture last week at Middlesex University. The one with our friendly Zionists. Watch the video to see what they reckon I should be jailed for; ‘incitement’ they call it. I would have to agree that telling the truth is the mostrevolutionary activity of our time and the UK police have already arrested me once on bogus pretences so we shall see. Either way so be it, in life, death or in prison I will not be silent, we will not be silent, no matter what they do to me, there will be justice. TJP

Here is the most contentious part of what I said in full;

“Now, let’s be clear, if it was possible, for an Israel to exist, in which it truly accepted all of the people of that region, especially the original inhabitants that were kicked out and murdered in masse, if it could somehow, legitimately recognise all of the people of that region, as brothers and sisters, and make sure that laws existed in which every last person was treated equally then I would shift my wrath towards Israel to an opening of seeing if this nation could conceivably act with any human decency.  But there is no indication that there is any genuine intention for anything like that at all, so, if Israel is inherently a racist state, if it is inherently an apartheid state, then I want no part of Israel, it has no place in this world. And it does in its current form, if you want me to use some inflammatory language, in its current form should be destroyed.

“Just like the UN in its current form should be destroyed, just like the American empire in its current form should be destroyed, just like the British empire in its current form should be destroyed, just like every corrupt, racist government should be destroyed.”

  1. Watching, listening, to this lecture, I was moved to tears by Ken’s passion and sincerity for Palestine, (which I have never doubted), It shone through like a beacon of light.. How could anyone doubt this man’s motives or intentions? They would have to be blind – or so corrupt they wouldn’t WANT to hear the truth. I would give my eye teeth to have been there to hear Ken speak. .Maybe next time… Well done, Ken.

  2. They say that when the torture victim thanks his torturer for a glass of water, the torturer knows that he has won – that even though the victim has been deprived of everything, including his human dignity, and reduced to a state of utter dependence, he now accepts his status, vis-a-vis the torturer, the oppressor. His is now totally submissive, and can be molded as desired – turned into a docile slave laborer in a sweatshop, or into one of the abject, degraded minions of the oppressor’s ever-expanding security apparatus. This has always been Israel’s policy, regarding the Palestinians. No one should expect anything different, as long as Israel, as it is currently constituted, continues to exist.

    Thanks, Ken, for continuing to fight one of the greatest – possibly THE greatest – obscenities of our time.

    • Sorry, that should read: “He is now totally submissive…”

    Ken, you never fail to amaze me with your ability to cut right to the core of insidious ploys.
    And where does Israel get their ʻopiumʻ ? From the U.S.
    Maybe they need to go thru a little cold turkey. In a way, as long as American tax dollars keep getting shoveled to Israel, they arenʻt going to change anything…just like an addict. Got to work on cutting off their free ride.
    I think Obama has tried a few times but he doesnʻt have the armor to follow through and no one is behind him when he turns around. Not defending him, just saying.

  4. It’s absolutely correct that Jews have a special obligation to oppose Zionazi Israel’s brutal, racist and terrorist policies. If you’re a Jew (and I am), then speak out against a criminal regime that claims to speak for you and all Jews. Speak out against an illegitimate (bastard) state that calls itself “the Jewish state”. If you’re a Jew, and you don’t speak out against Israel, then you are complicit in Israel’s crimes.

    Thanks Ken !!! You’re doing a great job of inciting people ……. inciting them to advocate for truth and justice. No truth – No justice. No justice – No peace !!! Free Palestine !!!!!!!!!!!
