In 1945 as the Russians closed in on Berlin, the chief of the German Red Cross sat his wife and children around the dinner table, took out a grenade, and blew them all to kingdom come.
For the chief of the German Red Cross was a Nazi.
No doubt if Sky News existed at the time, it would have decried the deaths of his wife and children as civilian casualties, and then endeavoured to find some way to blame the Jews for compelling him to commit suicide.
In 1943, senior Red Cross officials were photographed in Greece smoking a few convivial cigarettes with SS officers.
The pictures exude a happy relaxed camaraderie.
Clearly these Red Cross personnel were also Nazis.
They were indifferent to Nazis.
They liked Nazis.
Fast forward to the present day.
In Ireland the head of the Red Cross is a politician called David Andrews.
David Andrews has lobbied in Ireland on behalf of Arab interests.
David Andrews' most famous bit of lobbying concerned his statement that Ireland should have a Muslim television station so that the Irish could learn how much the country owes to Muslims.
Traitors come in many guises, eh Dave?
Even more famous for kindness to passing Arabs, than Dave the Fave Rave of Muslim Zouaves, is our ex Prime Minister Albert Reynolds.
Albert Reynolds received a donation of a million bucks some years ago from a generous Arab princeling.
The Arab princeling received an Irish passport.
Albert Reynolds claimed he was unaware that the Arab princeling had given Albert Reynolds a million bucks.
Albert Reynolds said he was unaware of the gift of a million bucks to him from an Arab princeling because the Arab princeling had given the million bucks to Albert Reynolds' pet food company and not directly to Albert Reynolds himself.
Albert Reynolds insisted that the decision to give an Irish passport to Abu Bin Mahmoud Al Millions was not related to the Arab princeling's decision to give a million bucks to Albert Reynolds' pet food company.
I kid you not.
You couldn't make it up.
But I digress.
The point I wanted to note is that Albert's political colleague David Andrews is head of the Irish Red Cross.
All the rest is padding.
Suffice it to say, I don't accord any credibility to the anti Israeli statements coming out of any Red Cross sources at the present time.
They are of a piece with the amoral Nazi accomodating behaviour of the Red Cross in the not so distant past.
This afternoon Sky News has been presenting us with the analysis of Red Cross officials based in the Gaza Strip.
Sky always identifies them as Red Cross officials.
Even though strictly speaking they are members of an allied organisation called catchily enough The Red Crescent.
Sounds a bit Muslim doesn't it?
Sky tends to spare our sensibilities on that score.
Nothing must detract from the agenda.
Nothing so worthless as accuracy anyway.
And all day long Sky broadcasts and rebroadcasts these Gaza Strip Red Cross officials telling us how the Israeli attack must be stopped.
Precisely the same day a UN school used by the Jihadis blows itself to smithereens when a single Israeli shell hits it.
It blows itself to smithereens because the UN had permitted Hamas to hide rockets and mortars in it.
In between promoting the pro Hamas viewpoint of the latter day Red Cross Arabist Nazis, Sky News blares out the views of personnel from Oxfam and associated UN charity businesses based in the Gaza Strip.
They trade on a permanent conflict in Gaza.
They certainly don't want to see the Iranian backed terror army known as Hamas being defeated.
Because then there would be no reason to maintain the massive funding which charities in Gaza have received for forty years.
Sky pretends the views of personnel working in the charity business are somehow worthy of respect.
Their views are repeated ad nauseam.
Yet they are much of a muchness.
"Israel must stop the bombardment," the Oxfam and UN charity businessmen declaim in unison.
Meaning explicitly, Arab terrorists must once more be let off the hook.
Let's face it.
Oxfam and associated UN businesses posing as charities have crammed food aid, fuel aid, clothes aid, school aid, and money aid into the Gaza Strip while all but ignoring genuine suffering and destitution and victimisation and oppression and genocide all across Africa and Asia.
Four million dead in the Congo in the past seven years.
At least three million dead in Southern Sudan.
Millions dead in Somalia, Western Sahara, Angola, Zimbabwe, and so on.
You hear the Gazans whining about two hours electricity or two hours water a day, or petrol shortages, or schools being closed, or whatever.
The Africans, the North Koreans, the Burmese, the Laotians, the Mongolians and the Cambodians have no schools, no running water, no electricity, no cars, no homes, no freedom, and virtually no lives.
Yet the UN continues to focus its resources on the one and a half million Gazan freebooters who two years ago elected the Iranian proxy terror army Hamas as their government and now want the rest of us to take the consequences.
This isn't charity.
This is a UN political project in support of Arab terror.
No more free lunches for Arab terrorists.
Nothing for any of them.
Let the Arabs work for a living.
Or if they're capable of making a living for themselves while engaging in permanent terrorism against the rest of the world, let them get on with it.
On their own dollar.
No more stage Irishmen called John Ging sticking their UN noses into matters that don't concern them.
No more John Ging of the UN Health and Relief Association with his pseudo Irish, faux British accent, proclaiming: "I'm not prejudging anything. I just want an enquiry. All this must stop now."
You're prejudging everything Ging.
You want to put the Israelis on trial for war crimes.
It's not going to happen Ging.
You should be on trial.
You should be on trial for permitting Hamas to control schools financed and built by the United Nations.
You should be on trial for allowing Hamas to store rockets and missiles in schools financed and built by the UN.
And you should be on trial Ging for standing back while Hamas fire on Israeli soldiers from schools financed and built by the UN, and then stepping forward when the smoke clears to tell Arab television that you want an enquiry.
You febrile git.
Get out of Gaza Ging.
But for God's sake stay away from Ireland.
We don't need you here.
We have quite enough Arabists swanning around peddling cloud cuckoo land notions of synthetic humanitarianism.
Here is the news.
Many of us have grown tired of inadvertently financing the Palestinian conflict through the UN's terrorist hand holding; tired of upholding the Arabs' conflict driven life style and dessicated victim culture; tired of giving Arab terrorists asylum in our countries without ever having a choice of denying these toe rags such asylum; and tired of watching young Arab street thugs harassing people going about their business in Dublin city centre and other European capitals.
You know what's funny.
The only place where the UN consistently speaks out against military actions is in the Gaza Strip.
And the only time it does so is when those military actions are carried out by Israel.
But there are signs the world has had enough.
Sky News and CNN may redouble their propaganda.
It doesn't matter.
Too many of us now know or suspect the truth about Arab Muslim terror.
Muslim terrorists are at war with all of us.
Consequently, the few recent rag tag Arab protest marches in the western world struggled to get a crowd.
In Dublin on Saturday the Irish national broadcaster lied about the turnout, claiming over a thousand people had turned up.
Even the abysmally dishonorable Irish Times admitted the numbers were as low as 600.
I counted 200 Arabs and their friends from the Irish Times and RTE at the march.
Interestingly enough, in other countries ordinary middle of the road people turned out to launch counter marches in support of Israel.
Yes things are changing.
Though not on Sky News or CNN.
Sky News and CNN would continue the same pro Arab reporting agenda if Ahmadinejad nuked London.
(Which he will attempt to do shortly.)
The rest of us have had enough.
Over on the heroically incompetent Irish national broadcaster RTE, presenter Anne Doyle announced on Sunday: "Death toll rises in Gaza, over 500 civilians now dead."
Not even Sky News' clownish Lord Haw Haws, Dominic Waghorn and Tim Marshall claim 500 civilians are dead.
Not even Hamas itself claims 500 civilians are dead.
Not even Press TV, the English language service of the Islamic Republic of Iran claims 500 civilians are dead.
The real figure, meaning the figure claimed by Arabs and Arab apologists, is 100 civilians dead.
And let's be clear.
These 100 civilians would be civilians in the sense that Magda Goebbels and the five little Goebbels children huddled in the bunker next to Hitler were civilians.
Presumably RTE will shortly issue a retraction.
Don't hold your breath.
And as surely as more and more of us begin to suspect the truth about Arab terror, that the Arabs are at war with all of us, as surely as we know it now, just as surely more and more of us begin to know that Sky News and CNN do not speak for the free world.
In fact they never have.
Remember CNN's concealment of murders committed by Saddam Hussein's regime?
Remember why CNN failed to report the various murders it knew Saddam had committed?
Remember how CNN sought to preserve its broadcasting rights in Iraq and actually decided against reporting the murder of one of CNN's own Iraqi employees in order to proect CNN's trading position in Iraq?
Pretty grim isn't it?
It all happened.
It's happening now.
CNN and Sky News do not speak for us.
They have no horse in the race which features the Free World against Islamic Terror.
By default they end up favouring the Arabs every time.
Can you believe it?
During a time of international Muslim Jihad against the world, the major media groups seem to have their eyes on broadcasting rights throughout the useless profitless Middle East.
That miracle region which has delivered oppression, poverty and desolation to its people even on the back of limitless oil wealth.
For those of us who believe there is a serious dysfunction in western discourse, and that Arab apologists have walked off with our media groups, for those of us who believe this and dare to oppose it, the time has come to establish alternative media outlets.
Certainly if the Islamic Republic of Iran has an English language satelite service, the State of Israel should seriously consider establishing its own readily available international news channel.
The American government likewise.
And those of us bloggers who've been holding high the torch of liberty on the internet, we too should start to set up our own media groups.
The time has come.
Sky News and CNN and their ilk have failed us.
Criminally failed us.
Who would have thought that in the early years of the twenty first century, journalistic excellence and intellectual integrity, moral courage and principled free speech, the very conscience as it were of the human race, would repose in a locally produced internet publication with two dozen readers a day.
Modesty prevents me from naming it.
