Remembering two British Sergeants 70 years after their brutal murder

July 29th was the 70th anniversary of a brutal terrorist outrage which our treacherous political establishment now wishes to forget: the murders of two young British Sergeants serving in Palestine, Mervyn Paice and Clifford Martin.

Paice and Martin were kidnapped by the Irgun, a Zionist terror group whose leader Menachem Begin later became Prime Miniser of Israel.  They were held for eighteen days in bestial conditions, tortured and finally murdered.  Their bodies were left hanging in a eucalyptus grove near the Palestinian town of Netanya, where a mine was planted, exploding when British soldiers tried to cut down the bodies.

The Forgotten British Heroes Campaign, now chaired by Heritage and Destiny assistant editor Peter Rushton, held a memorial event in Bristol to mark the anniversary.

A wreath was laid at the grave of Sgt Paice in the churchyard of St Mary’s, Stoke Bishop, followed by a meeting in central Bristol addressed by Richard Edmonds, Jez Turner, Lady Michèle Renouf and Peter Rushton.

FBHC has previously held two demonstrations in Trafalgar Square, London, outside the Church of St Martin in the Fields, where a Stern Gang terrorist bomb was planted in March 1947 by Robert Misrahi. This Zionist bomber went on to enjoy an academic career in Paris where he still lives today, untroubled by prosecutors. FBHC is calling on the British authorities to extradite Misrahi for questioning about the Trafalgar Square bomb and other Stern Gang atrocities including the 1948 murder of Rex Farran.

Kevin Bryan on the Manchester Massacre

Manchester Arena bomb

I thought I would leave it a few days before I commented on the events of five days ago, Mon 22nd May.

Late evening I was going to sleep when my daughter knocked on my bedroom door and said “Dad there has been a bomb at the MEN in Manchester”. I got out of bed, turned on my phone, turned on the TV and spent the next few hours watching the events unfold.

At first, News reporters were talking such nonsense, “It could have been a helium balloon, it could have been a large speaker exploding”!

You really could not make it up, they were showing live footage of thousands of youngsters running out into the street and at the same time reporting that the explosion may have been one of the giant helium balloons!!!

As soon as my daughter told me there had been an explosion at the MEN I knew exactly what had happened as did thousands of social media users and thousands more watching the TV across the country. It does not mean we are psychic: no it means we are realist, unlike the nation’s media that straight away start looking for excuses.

What happened on the night of Monday May 22nd was an absolute tragedy. 22 people, mainly children slaughtered on the altar of Fanatical Islam.

To we Nationalists, it came as no surprise and neither will the next one, be it tomorrow or next month. We know what is coming!

I don’t want to sound like I’m playing the “I told you so card”, but it is a fact that Nationalists have been warning about such attacks for years, and for years we have had mainly the same response: that of scare mongering and the racist label!

For at least two decades, Criminal Muslims have been destroying the lives of young White girls, their evil practice of grooming has meant that many young white girls will never be able to live a normal life. How could they? After being drugged beaten and gang raped by dozens of filthy evil alien criminals.

So now these cowards go one step further and blow up and maim our children.

As soon as the TV crews began filming people at the scene and around Manchester, their initial reaction was shock and anger. The Libtards had not as yet started to inflict their weakness but by midday Tuesday the propaganda machine was in full swing, every newspaper showed the picture of the Muslim woman with the Union Flag headscarf, they bombarded news reports and social media about how Muslim doctors and Muslim taxi drivers had given up their time to help.

Wait a minute, shouldn’t this be a normal human response? Typical of the controlled media pandering to the Muslim. What about the thousands of non-Muslims that did their human duty and helped out?

Kevin Bryan addressing the SW Forum in May 2017

Kevin Bryan addressing the SW Forum in May 2017

It was Fanatical Muslims who committed this atrocity, so why pander to the few that helped out: everyone that helped out and saved lives and eased distress was on the night a hero.

Almost every forum on social media is now full of Liberal apologists: “they are not all bad you know”; “You can’t blame a whole community for the actions of a few extremists!”

The truth is, as with the grooming gangs, many in the Muslim community know who these people are, they pray in the same Mosques, they walk the same streets, they chat to the Imams, the community knows when they are off on their trips to Syria, Iraq and other places, in many cases the local Mosque and Muslim elders fund the trips abroad. Do they think they are funding for these young radicals to go sight seeing?

So now five days later, what are the public doing? Have they taken to the streets in their hundreds of thousands? Have they marched into Muslim areas demanding they weed out the evil in their community?

No they are attending candle lit vigils, sending pink hearts to each other and adding “I love Manchester” filters on FaceBook!

The weakness of the British people is just incredible, it has got to the point again where some on social media are saying about myself, “I am no better than Muslim extremists”. Why? Because I have told them the only answer if we are to survive as a race & nation and the only answer to protect us from more attacks is a policy of repatriation.

The Nationalist Response!

Some have been quick to arrange demos and marches in Manchester, that is of course up to individual groups but I know Manchester and if people are coming to Manchester thinking they are going to have the public onside and they will have a trouble-free, confrontation-free event then they are sadly deluded, THIS IS MANCHESTER, a Red City where even those grieving today will turn out and oppose you tomorrow, Greater Manchester Police are one of the most left wing forces in the country, they hate nationalists, Nationalists will be kettled in Manchester and their voice will not be heard.

If members of the National Front wish to attend these events then that is up to them but I do feel they need to know what to expect, they also need to realise that GMP will be looking for token arrests to appease the Muslim community.

I myself will be thinking hard over the next few days as to the National Front response; I already have ideas floating around.

What I will say is that all Nationalists must be united in condemning the slaughter of Monday May 22nd.

We must be united in condemning the Politicians that have allowed these people to settle and practice their vile religion in our land and we must be united in agreeing that the only answer can be the repatriation of the illegal alien hordes back to their country of origin, no other answer will secure a nation fit and free for our young white children.

Despite all the name calling, despite all the smears the National Front has now been telling the truth for the last 50 years, we will continue to warn people, we will continue TO TELL THE TRUTH.

Corbyn is right: the war on terror isn’t working – but we should also drain the swamp

Corbyn - War on Terror speech

Amid predictable fake outrage from his Conservative opponents, Jeremy Corbyn – no friend of H&D! – has dared to tell the truth.  As election campaigning resumed today (following several days hiatus due to the terrorist bombing of a Manchester concert hall) the Labour leader said: “We must be brave enough to admit the war on terror is simply not working. We need a smarter way to reduce the threat from countries that nurture terrorists and generate terrorism.”

It seems likely that the Manchester atrocity was carried out by a suicide bomber of Libyan origin, linked to that country’s version of Islamic State. If so, then it emanates from a truly Orwellian swamp. British governments once allied themselves with the earlier local version of IS – the Libyan Islamic Fighting Group – in terrorist and assassination plots against that country’s former dictator Col. Gaddafi.

Then under Tony Blair we changed tack, and delivered our former Islamist allies to Libyan torturers collaborating in a worldwide ‘war on terror’.  Sir Mark Allen (former MI6 counterterrorism director) might still face criminal charges over his role in the kidnapping and torture of LIFG leader Abdul Hakim Belhaj, though the relevant ministers including Jack Straw have typically dodged their responsibility.

In 2011 under David Cameron there was another policy lurch: Libya’s Islamists (or at least some of them) became our allies again in the campaign to oust Gaddafi.  And now in the resultant post-Gaddafi chaos they are back to being the enemy.

David Shayler - Libya plot

All this would be mad enough: what makes it really crazy is that among the 57 varieties of alien immigrant thronging British cities are a large community of Libyans with personal and family ties to these very characters who were sometimes our allies, while at other times consigned to the torture chamber.

Foreign and defence policy has never had much space for morality.  One response to the slaughter of British children in Manchester (the opposite of Corbyn’s policy) might be to carry out a reciprocal slaughter in Libya, targeting the extended families and support networks of IS.

But – setting moral questions entirely aside – H&D readers should recognise that such a policy (whether aiming at deterrence or merely revenge) requires precisely targeted and pitiless brutality. In their prime the likes of Gaddafi or Syria’s Hafez al-Assad were capable of that – hence their regimes survived.  Does anyone really believe that Britain has the will (let alone the local knowledge) to follow such a policy to its logical conclusion, to take whatever the terrorists throw back at us and throw back more of the same, until eventually we supposedly crush them?

It’s not going to happen.

Aftermath of the IRA's Manchester bomb in 1996. This bomb's materials were supplied by Col. Gaddafi, sworn enemy of this week's Manchester terrorists.

Aftermath of the IRA’s Manchester bomb in 1996. This bomb’s materials were supplied by Col. Gaddafi, sworn enemy of this week’s Manchester terrorists.

So we are left with the logic of Corbyn’s alternative. Some form of new deal with the Islamic world. We can only hope this would be less hypocritical then the deal with an earlier generation of bombers who targeted Manchester.  Among this week’s many tragic ironies is that the bomb that devastated Manchester city centre in 1996, planted just a few yards away from the scene of this week’s carnage, was the work of IRA godfathers armed by Col. Gaddafi, the bitter enemy of this week’s suicide bomber and his family.

No one was ever charged over that 1996 Manchester bombing – except a journalist and a police officer who dared to name the main suspect, the IRA’s Declan McCann (then of Crossmaglen, Co Armagh). McCann was spared arrest for political reasons and has since moved south to Castleblayney, Co Monaghan: he owns a property empire with his brother John. His IRA commanders went on to form part of Northern Ireland’s government and shake hands with the Queen.

 

Corbyn of course has his own dishonourable record of IRA apologetics. And though his approach to today’s failed war on terror makes sense, there’s one aspect that Corbyn and his ilk will never admit. Alongside a reassessment of foreign policy must come a draining of the multi-ethnic swamp. We should return the teeming non-British masses of our towns and cities back to their countries of origin.

UPDATE: On tonight’s Channel 4 News, Theresa May’s Defence Secretary Sir Michael Fallon fell into a well-laid journalistic trap when he condemned what he thought were Jeremy Corbyn’s words about the war on terror, only to find they were the words of his senior Cabinet colleague, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson!  A more sympathetic journalist in The Spectator had earlier today offered the Tories some wise strategic advice on how to handle this issue: they failed to take it – and as another Spectator columnist Rod Liddle puts it, this is turning into the worst Tory election campaign on record.

A disgrace to politics: Sinn Fein leader celebrates murderers

Michelle O’Neill with the late IRA terrorist godfather Martin McGuinness

Sinn Fein leader Michelle O’Neill – almost certain to become Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland within weeks – has hit a new low in her party’s disgraceful and bloody history.

Ms O’Neill is to appear as guest speaker on Sunday (April 30th) at what is being advertised as the ‘Loughgall Martyrs 30th Anniversary’, leaving from Altmore Chapel in Co Tyrone.

These “martyrs” were the murder gang from the East Tyrone Brigade of the IRA, headed by Jim Lynagh, Patrick Kelly and Pádraig McKearney. Among their proudest achievements was the butchery of Sir Norman Stronge, the 86-year-old former Speaker of Stormont, and his son James, at their home Tynan Abbey in January 1981, after which they burned down the Abbey and engaged in a 20-minute gunfight with policemen and soldiers in the Abbey grounds: more than 200 shots were fired.

The IRA murder gang’s Hiace van riddled with bullets after the SAS ambush at Loughgall in May 1987: an execution to celebrate rather than mourn as ‘martyrdom’.

The murderers’ luck ran out when they were killed in an SAS ambush while attempting to attack a police station in the village of Loughgall, Co Armagh, in May 1987.

These are the “martyrs” who are being celebrated by Michelle O’Neill next weekend: and no doubt this gangster’s moll will later expect to shake hands with the Queen.

In a more rational world she would share the fate of her beloved “martyrs”.

 

How a BNP demo almost led to the assassination of Ken Livingstone

Frank Portinari book

 

Just over 24 years ago a unity demonstration backed by the British National Party and an alliance of other patriots and opponents of terrorism almost led to the assassination of IRA sympathiser Ken Livingstone, who was then a Labour MP and later became Mayor of London.

The story is revealed in a new book Left-Right-Loyalist by Frank Portinari, former London commander for the Ulster Defence Association.

Today the Daily Star on Sunday broke the news under an “exclusive” headline: Second Northern Irish assassination plot on Ken Livingstone uncovered.  Later the same story was picked up by the Mail on Sunday.

(left to right) Ken Livingstone, Sinn Fein - IRA godfather Gerry Adams, and Jeremy Corbyn in London, 1983

Many H&D readers will remember the anti-IRA demonstration on 30th January 1993. Hundreds of patriots blocked the path of IRA supporters from the Troops Out Movement, who intended to march from Hyde Park to Kilburn (London’s Irish republican heartland).

Frank Portinari reveals in his new book that the intention was for the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) to use ensuing chaos to assassinate Livingstone:
“Livingstone’s provocative support for Irish republican terrorists and their apologists made him public enemy number one.  A UFF unit decided to assassinate Livingstone on the day of the march. A volunteer on a motorbike would be parked nearby to transport the gunman to a safe house.”

Author Frank Portinari

However huge numbers of police intervened to protect the IRA marchers and their friend Livingstone. At least 296 BNP and Loyalist demonstrators were arrested – in fact the true figure was over 400, since many were released once transported some distance from Hyde Park, and hundreds more were ordered to disperse under threat of arrest.

One leading BNP activist well known to H&D rallied a group to break through the police lines: they almost succeeded, but police just about kept control and were then reinforced. Livingstone survived and was elected Mayor of London from 2000 to 2008.

Several of our demonstrators were advised by sympathetic police officers to dispose of weapons before arriving at police stations.

Due to train delays our assistant editor was late arriving at Hyde Park.  In those days before mobile phones he was surprised to see none of our comrades around, so followed the route of the IRA march into Kilburn, expecting to catch up with the counter-demonstration – not realising that all our people had been arrested or dispersed. Unfortunately he then found himself right in the heart of the IRA supporters at their rally outside the Sacred Heart church in Quex Road, Kilburn – but was then able to file a report for the BNP newspaper British Nationalist exposing the true nature of the speakers at this event, who gloated over the IRA’s murder of two British corporals.

Sinn Fein leader sanctioned murder

Gerry Adams – President of Sinn Fein (the political wing of the terrorist IRA) since 1983 – sanctioned the murder of a former Sinn Fein official, according to a BBC investigation broadcast on Tuesday night.

Adams was MP for Belfast West until 2011, and for the past five years has been a member of the Irish Parliament as TD for Louth.

An IRA informant told the BBC:
“I know from my experience in the IRA that murders have to be approved by the leadership. They have to be given approval by the leadership of the IRA and the military leadership of the IRA.  …Gerry Adams, he gives the final say.”

The programme referred specifically to the murder of Denis Donaldson, who for many years was a senior Sinn Fein official, latterly in charge of administration at the party offices in Stormont.  Since the 1980s Donaldson had been an agent for the British security service MI5 and the Special Branch of the Royal Ulster Constabulary. He was paid to provide intelligence about terrorism and other criminal activities of Adams and his gang.

In 2005 Donaldson confessed to his 20-year role as a British agent.  A few months later he was brutally murdered at his remote cottage home.

No-one has ever been convicted for the Donaldson murder. When an investigation was reopened in 2009, a splinter group called ‘Real IRA’ conveniently claimed responsibility. However the latest BBC investigation suggests this was nonsense, and that the IRA Army Council gave the orders. Gerry Adams and his close colleague Martin McGuinness (now Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland) were the key figures within the IRA leadership throughout this period.

The latest allegations will probably not disturb Adams’s many celebrity supporters, ranging from U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump to British Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn.

Forgotten British Heroes remembered at Trafalgar Square demo

On July 30th ex-servicemen and British patriots including members of many different parties and movements gathered at Trafalgar Square for a demonstration in memory of Forgotten British Heroes.

The event was held on the spot where in March 1947 Jewish terrorists exploded a bomb, at a social club for British colonial servicemen.  The bomber – Robert Misrahi – escaped punishment and went on to become Professor of Ethical Philosophy at the Sorbonne in Paris, one of the world’s most prestigious universities.  Misrahi is still alive and politically active.  The FBHC is liaising with Scotland Yard to secure his arrest, since he not only committed the London bombing but was a leading operative of the terrorist group – the Stern Gang – who sent a letter bomb which killed Rex Farran (young brother of British war hero Roy Farran) at his family home near Wolverhampton – a murder which remains officially unsolved.

Speakers at the demonstration and at a subsequent meeting in a central London hotel included veteran British nationalists Martin Webster and Richard Edmonds; London Forum founder Jez Turner; former BNP regional organiser Julie Lake; and H&D assistant editor Peter Rushton.

Video from the event can be seen below, and further information is available from the campaign website.

Ambassador tackles Fenian scum

Ambassador Vickers (right) tackles 'Real IRA' scum disrupting ceremony

Ambassador Vickers (right) tackles ‘Real IRA’ scum disrupting ceremony

Kevin Vickers, Canada’s Ambassador to Ireland, was first to react when a terrorist front group tried to disrupt last Thursday’s centenary commemoration for British forces killed in the treacherous 1916 Easter Rising.

The ceremony at Grangegorman Military Cemetery was interrupted by Brian Murphy of the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association (IRPWA) – a front for the terrorist faction known as the Real IRA or (since 2012) New IRA, which also uses titles such as 32 County Sovereignty Committee. An arms cache belonging to this terror gang – including anti-personnel mines and an armour-piercing rocket – was found on May 16th in Capanagh Forest, near Larne, Co Antrim.

Ambassador Vickers did not wait for police to deal with the Fenian insult last Thursday: a wise decision as one never knows with police in the Irish Republic whether to expect law enforcement or sympathy with terrorism.

As shown in the video, Ambassador Vickers took the direct action approach!  The Fenian scum on the receiving end can count themselves lucky to have got off so lightly: when another terrorist strayed onto Vickers’s patch in his previous role as Sergeant-at-Arms of the Canadian Parliament in 2014, Vickers shot him dead.

While several “New IRA” crimes have been directed at rival Fenian terror gangs, including several shootings earlier this month, there have been suggestions that a new wave of Republican terrorism might be expected soon against both Ulster and British targets. Loyal Ulstermen and Britons alike will bear in mind Ambassador Vickers’s example, and as during previous Fenian campaigns, will not wait for the courts to protect them.

In October 2014 as Sergeant-at-Arms of the Canadian Parliament, Kevin Vickers shot terrorist Michael Zehaf-Bibeau who had earlier killed a young Canadian sentry.

Anti-fascist gangster pervert jailed

Dominic Noonan after his release in 2014. Several cases against the “anti-fascist” gang boss collapsed, but he is now back behind bars.

One of Britain’s most notorious gangsters, who was in the vanguard of violent “anti-fascism”, is beginning an 11-year prison sentence for a series of crimes linked to his organised crime empire.  Dominic Noonan (who now spells his name “Domenyk”) presided over a reign of terror in the Manchester and Salford area. He was also convicted of “attempting to pervert the course of justice” after paying the parents of a young boy so that he would not give evidence about Noonan’s alleged sexual offences.

Noonan and his late brother – gangland assassin Dessie Noonan – had close ties to Irish republican terrorists and related “anti-fascist” activity in North West England which was at its peak in the 1990s. Dessie Noonan was killed by a black drug dealer in 2005.

Dominic Noonan – a well-known homosexual – surrounded himself with a coterie of teenage boys, and organised them in an orgy of rioting across Manchester following the death of Dessie’s nephew, black gangster Mark Duggan, in a controversial shooting by London police in 2011.

Heritage and Destiny readers will be familiar with the entire Noonan saga. We are only now able to report Dominic Noonan’s prison sentence – though he was jailed in September last year – because of a contempt of court order restricting reporting until a related case had concluded. Last year Dominic Noonan came to attention after the murder of another local gang boss Paul Massey, who shortly before his death had posted allegations online against Noonan. Massey had also been on the far left, but in the last year of his life had been a UKIP supporter.

Last week Noonan received a further two year sentence for perverting the course of justice, though he was acquitted of “engaging in a sex act in front of a minor”. Last September he was given a nine-year sentence for offences including blackmail and arson.

In 2004 Dominic Noonan was jailed for 9½ years for possession of a firearm: he was released in 2010 but briefly recalled to prison in 2011 for his role in that year’s riots.

While highlighting cases of hooliganism among their opponents (less among genuine nationalists than among the Islam-obsessed EDL and allied groups) “anti-fascists” are not keen to highlight their own close connections with notorious figures in Greater Manchester organised crime.  Coincidentally (or perhaps not) while the EDL gangsters and hooligans tend to support Manchester City (despite the club’s ownership by the Muslim ruling family of Abu Dhabi!), their “anti-fascist” opponents tend to be linked to the rival club Manchester United, and even produced an “anti-fascist” football fanzine, Red Attitude.

The most notorious “anti-fascist” gangsters in Greater Manchester were Salford’s Dessie Noonan, responsible for more than twenty gangland killings before his own murder in March 2005, and Manchester’s Paddy Logan, who like Noonan was involved with both Anti-Fascist Action and various Irish republican terrorist gangs before falling victim to an internal criminal feud, shot dead in his own bedroom in July 1999.

This photo was taken in Manchester at the pro-IRA Manchester Martyrs march, also featuring local gangster and IRA supporter Paddy Logan.

Sadly however nationalists must admit that criminality and perversion are not unknown in our own ranks. Ironically in the same week as the latest Noonan case, former BNP activist Ian Hindle was convicted of a second sexual offence in the past few years.

Ian Hindle’s first conviction for sex offences was in 2008, when he was given a three-year sentence for offences involving 14-year-old girls.  Also sentenced in this 2008 case was Hindle’s fellow BNP activist Andrew Wells, who was then a well-known organised crime figure in the Blackburn area. Perhaps the most serious aspect of this case is that Wells was also involved in recruiting (among both nationalists and criminals) for a security company employed by NATO forces in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Obama official “cleaned up” Mandela’s Marxist tract

Richard Stengel with Nelson Mandela: the Jewish-American journalist suppressed evidence of Mandela's Marxism and terrorism when ghost writing his memoirs

Richard Stengel with Nelson Mandela: the Jewish-American journalist suppressed evidence of Mandela’s Marxism and terrorism when ghost writing his memoirs

Newly discovered manuscripts prove the extent of the fraud perpetrated on naive liberals worldwide, in portraying Marxist terrorist Nelson Mandela as a campaigner for “democracy”. Part of the truth is revealed in a Spectator article this week by award winning South African author Rian Malan.

Mandela was a member of the central committee of the South African Communist Party, and leader of the terrorist wing of the black nationalist African National Congress, when he was imprisoned for terror offences in 1962. In 1976 fellow communist cadres smuggled out the manuscript of a revolutionary tract written in prison by Mandela. Yet this was not published immediately: the text was heavily edited by a New York journalist called Rick Stengel, before being published as a suitably anodyne and democratic autobiography, which became a worldwide best seller when published in 1994 as Long Walk to Freedom.

The legend was burnished further when Long Walk to Freedom was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster in 2013, starring Idris Elba – London-born son of African immigrants – as Mandela. Elba won a Golden Globe best actor nomination.

As Malan points out, Stengel suppressed or distorted important aspects of Mandela’s text, in addition to disguising his Marxist ideology. The world’s liberals were led to believe that Mandela had been a peaceful campaigner for black civil rights until the so-called Sharpeville Massacre in 1960, when South African police opened fire on black rioters.  In fact Mandela had been plotting an armed uprising at least seven years before Sharpeville!  The future Nobel Prize winner sent a fellow cadre to Communist China in 1953 to solicit weapons for the supposedly non-violent ANC.

“I was bitter and felt ever more strongly that SA whites need another Isandlwana,” wrote the peace-loving Mandela – referring to the notorious slaughter of more than 2,000 British soldiers and civilians in 1879 by a force of over 20,000 Zulu warriors.

Ghost writer Stengel – who was a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford in the late 1970s and managing editor of Time magazine from 2006 to 2013 – has been Undersecretary of State for Public Diplomacy in President Obama’s State Department since 2013.  The job involves coordinating media and propaganda efforts to promote American policy worldwide. It is not known whether presentation of Obama’s policies has involved similar deceptions to those practised by Stengel in covering up Nelson Mandela’s Marxism and terrorism.

Time - King Bibi

In 2012 Stengel wrote a major feature on Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for Time, headlined “King Bibi”.
