Lord Ahmed regrets that his Woody Allen SatNav made him look like a racist

lord ahmed bigot

LORD Ahmed has issued a “complete and unreserved” for saying Jews were behind his imprisonment for dangerous driving. It turns out that wasn’t Jews who made him drive dangerously and slam into car driven by a man who died as a result. Ahmed’s SatNav was not calibrated to feature the voice of Woody Allen’s Rabbi Virgil Starkwell telling him to “Dive, schmive. Go on drive, already so fast” into the car that’s come to halt in the fast lane. “Go! Send your texts messages. Speed and kill a father of two. Who is this Martin Gombar? Is he from a good family? Does he have a nice word to say about you?”

Following Ahmed’s claim that it was Jews who run the British media and the justice system – and they were responsible for his 12-week prison sentence –  Lord Ahmed was suspended from the Labour Party. And then he saw the light. He told the Huffington Post:

“I only believe in facts and to be honest I should have stuck with the facts rather than with conspiracy theories. I completely and unreservedly apologise to the Jewish community, to the judiciary, to the newspaper owners.”

Lord Ahmed: Michael White is not an anti-Semite says Daniel Finkelstein and his sensible Jewish friends

ABOUT peer Lord Ahmed is accused of being an anti-Semite. He denies the charge. You can read the background to the story here. It boils down to Ahmed allegedly claiming on Pakistani TV that the Jews were behind his conviction for dangerous driving. Lord Ahmed went to prison for his crime. The man whose car he hit died.

Daniel Finkelstein is the Executive Editor and a leader writer of the Times, the paper that broke the story. He tweeted:

“Surprised to find our Lord Ahmed Jews story not in BBC radio news summaries…”

If Lord Ahmed is a pariah why doesn’t the Labour Party kick out more members for alleged anti-Semitism?

THE Labour Party has suspended their Lord Ahmed for his alleged comments that a Jewish conspiracy lurked behind his imprisonment for driving offences in which a man was killed. Says Labour:

“The Labour Party deplores and does not tolerate any form of anti-Semitism.”

Good that it does. Odd that it feels a need to state it. But, then, anti-racism is the moral cause the elite use to binds the nation.

But what does Labour do when others are accused of racism? Take Tam Dalyell, then a Labour MP, who said Tony Blair was being “unduly influenced by a cabal of Jewish advisors”? That time, Labour did nothing.

A  Cabal is defined as:

 the artifices and intrigues of a group of persons secretly united in a plot (as to overturn a government); also : a group engaged in such artifices and intrigues

Labour peer Lord Ahmed blames the Jews for his imprisonment

LORD Ahmed is a Labour peer. In all likelihood, he will be expelled from the Labour Party if the following proves to be true. The Times leads with “Muslim peer blames Jewish conspiracy for jailing him”. The Times makes Ahmed’s religion central to the story. Were Ahmed Christian, would his religion be headline-making news?

Save your sympathies, perhaps, for Martyn Gombar. He was the 28-year-old Slovakian killed on Christmas Day, 2007. Lord Ahmed’s Jaguar smacked into Gombar’s car on the M1 near Sheffield. Gombar’s vehicle was stationary at the time. He had crashed and come to a halt in the outside lane.

Lord Ahmed’s little problem with Pakistan’s pet jihadis Lashkar-e-Taiba

MEMRI reports on an article it spotted in Pakistan’s The Express Tribune. In “Britain’s Lord Nazir Ahmed Offers £10 Million Bounty for Obama, Bush”, Memri notes:

 “In an expression of solidarity with Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) Chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed, British parliamentarian of Kashmiri origin Lord Nazir Ahmed has announced a reward for the [capture] of U.S. President Barack Obama and his predecessor, George W. Bush.”

Ahmed, allegedly, made his offer in light of the US posting a $10 million reward for the capture of Pakistani militant leader Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, founder of the Lashkar-e-Taiba group (“Army of the righteous”). It organised the 2008 massacre in Mumbai, in which 174 people including nine gunmen were killed. Lashkar-e-Taiba tortured the Jewish victims before murdering them. As Saeed said: “Since our life revolves around Islam, therefore both dawa and jihad are essential, we cannot prefer one over the other.” In 2011, Saeed led a rally condemning America for killing Osama Bin Laden.
