    cannot bomb or destroy the will of one s opponents with such ill conceived rhetoric Reply beatrix campbell Post author December 4 2015 at 9 27 am Well in a way a good thing it was in the Commons live and not on t internet because he would have been abused rather than answered Reply Gary Rudd December 4 2015 at 12 01 pm The very notion of the west who constructed the middle east and drew their own arbitrary lines in the sand is in itself fascist Your analysis utterly ignores the fascist elephant in the room who are doing a very convincing imitation of their former oppressors as the apogee of fascism Israel It s like discussing Southern Africa without even hinting at Mugabe s existence invalid Reply Gary Rudd December 4 2015 at 12 10 pm So much sensitivity from people who think it s ok to aggressively interfere in the affairs of a foreign state uninvited And what s abusive I agree that death threats are absolutely beyond the pale particularly when accompanied by 500lbs of high explosive raining down from above Sticks and stones and Pavier bombs and Brimstone missiles As ye reap so shall ye sow Reply Johan scheffer December 4 2015 at 5 43 am There s much to agree with in what Beatrix Campbell writes Debates in which MPs are not bound by collective party positions often produce this sense of sharpness and bring moral concerns to the fore One had a sense watching the debate that MPs might have been ready to qualify their own judgements But I suspect that not one Member actually changed their mind as a result of what was said There is much to admire in Hilary Benn s speech but fundamentally in my view it was less than persuasive because it failed to take on two key issues The first was to own up to the history that produced IS and brought about the brutal and complex situation in Syria and Iraq and across the region This is the history of the violent interference of global superpowers and their fellow travellers in the affairs of the people of the region Parliaments and Governments of the alliance have not owned up to the Western imposition of the Sykes Picot boarders the exploitation of oil the propping up of domestically violent dictatorships the undermining of the development of progressive middle class independence movements over the last half century and more the reckless militarisation of the retaliation of the attack on the Twin Towers and the carnage visited upon the people and institutions of the region Hilary Benn s speech failed to embody the proposition that the only way of understanding politics is to understand it s history To own up to the brutal role played by the West is in no way to justify the actions of IS but decent people throughout the Middle East need to hear the West acknowledge and take responsibility for the creation at
