WHY IS THIS MAN WRITING FOR THE GUARDIAN?I'd missed this one the first time around. From earlier in the year, here's Guardian columnist Azzam Tamimi preaching moderation on the issue of Jerusalem, Israel and Palestine:
Choice quotes for the hard of hearing or those whose bosses might not appreciate them belting out Islamists rants whilst at work:
Those who resist, those who fight, put up a Jihad against racism, against Zionism, are the true representatives of the Palestinians and all the Muslims regarding the Palestinian issue.Well that's one less Christmas card I'll be sending this year.
Israel is a menace, is a threat to humanity!
They [Bush and Blair] are worried that this spoilt baby of theirs [Israel] is about to be thrown out of this human body of ours! [Nicely put.]
You count my words! And you remember these words! It's a matter of time.

And speaking of true representatives, other than being a terrorist shill, who exactly does this man represent?
