Yes he’s here at last. Our man from the Cancer on the grand topic of the day and what a treat it is.
If anyone has any idea what on earth he’s talking about, feel free to explain because he’s gone through the looking glass and on down the K-hole with this one.
During World War II, after the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939, Jewish ghettos were set up to control the millions of Polish Jews. Inside the ghettos they lived on starvation rations before, in 1941, shipment to extermination camps began.
Despite being trapped in effective death camps, Jewish resistance groups managed to operate. In January 1943, German forces tried to level the Warsaw ghetto, but were beaten off by Jewish resistance fighters. Another attempt to destroy the ghetto led to the uprising of April 1943. For one month, the Jews fought off the German army but their resistance was eventually crushed.
Today, conditions in Gaza are very similar to the Warsaw ghetto.

I [have been] criticised for comparing the suffering and resistance of the Palestinians in the Gaza ghetto today to the suffering and resistance of the Jews in the Warsaw ghetto of World War II . Let me make it clear, I was not referring to the Holocaust.

Well that’s cleared that up hasn’t it? Farooq was referring to that other Warsaw ghetto during World War II. You know, the one that had absolutely nothing to do with the Holocaust. How stupid of us to think otherwise.
Does Siddique think we’re all as thick and ignorant as he plainly is? And has he any idea what damage his embarrassing and insensitive outbursts and arse-about-face excuses are doing to the decent Muslim community he purports to represent?
