Some inclusivity is more equal than other inclusivity.
“Anti-racism trainer who ran ‘inclusivity’ workshop for civil servants at Cabinet Office wished death on ‘Zionists’ in Twitter post and compared Israel to ‘white supremacy,'” by Jack Wright, MailOnline, November 25, 2021:
An anti-racism trainer who ran an ‘inclusivity’ workshop for civil servants at the Cabinet Office has compared Israel to ‘white supremacy’ and wished death on ‘Zionists’, it has emerged.
Mizanur Rahman, who calls himself Mizan the Poet on Twitter, said he oversaw a training session for civil servants in 2019 entitled ‘an inclusive Britain’ – despite previously sharing anti-Semitic posts on social media since 2014.
In the past, he has directly equated Israel with ‘white supremacy’ and claimed the Jewish State was ‘founded on terrorism and ethnic cleansing’.
Mr Rahman also responded to one post about an Israeli soldier who lost both his hands in a Hamas attack by saying: ‘Hopefully he, and all IDF soldiers and Zionists, will lose more than just their limbs… their lives!!!!’.
He has even shared images on Twitter of inmates at Buchenwald concentration camp next to an image of Palestinians at the Ephraim-Taybeh checkpoint in the West Bank.
After the Cabinet Office workshop, he tweeted: ‘I spoke about institutional racism / Islamophobia, the role of the media, Prevent, detention centres and other ways that racism manifests in society.’
Mr Rahman said he also led an event at the Ministry of Defence in 2019, in which he spoke out against ‘British Israelis joining the #Israel Defence forces and committing human rights abuses in #Palestine’.
A Cabinet Office spokesman told MailOnline that it has since tightened up on due diligence on invited speakers and checks their social media activity. The MoD has been approached for comment.
In 2018, Mr Rahman attended a Quds Day march in London at which flags were flown for the terrorist group Hezbollah. During the rally, one speaker called for Israel to be ‘wiped off the map’.
And when former London Mayor Ken Livingstone resigned from Labour over his claims that Hitler supported Zionism, Mr Rahman called the view ‘pure historical fact’, the Jewish Chronicle reported.
A post alongside the Buchenwald and Ephraim-Taybeh images stated: ‘In the Holy Land, the Zionist government, with the support of the majority of Israel’s population, are themselves perpetuating a holocaust against the Palestinian people.
‘After the bodies are counted and the atrocities documented, how will the Zionist government excuse themselves for committing these crimes against humanity?’…
Earlier this month, Mr Rahman lodged a complaint after Labour banned him from its list of potential council candidates. He claimed the decision was based on ‘institutional islamophobia and anti-Palestinian racism’.
