Tony Blair’s Islamic-Supremacist Life Peer At It Again

Speaking of the Islamic sheikhdown racket from the United Kingdom, how nice to see Nazir Ahmed back in the news. When we last encountered this native Pakistan Islamic-supremacist, made a life peer by Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1998, Lord Ahmed was putting out a bounty of £10 million for the capture of President Obama and President Bush in retaliation for the United States government’s announcement of a $10 million reward for aid in the apprehension of Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, emir of the Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist organization (or is it political resistance organization?). Now, the Right Honorable Lord Ahmed has been suspended by Labour for blaming — what else? — Jewish control of the media for the twelve-week jail sentence he received for dangerous driving.

On Christmas Day, 2007, Lord Ahmed crashed his car into the stationary car of Martyn Gombar, killing him. Ahmed blamed the court’s light prison sentence (he was looking at a possibility of two years’ incarceration) not on the fact that he was texting as he sped along the M-1 before the crash but “because I went to Gaza to support Palestinians. My Jewish friends who own newspapers and TV channels opposed this.’’

As the Telegraph reports, Lord Ahmed has apologized for getting caught making these comments, emphasizing that he is “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.’’

Heavens, no.
