“Will the Leader of the House find time for an urgent statement on iEngage, the secretariat of the newly formed all-party parliamentary group on Islamophobia? iEngage has a track record of being aggressively anti-Semitic and homophobic, and has extensive links with terrorism in Tunisia and the middle east.”
Halfon can only get away with making such an outrageous and defamatory accusation because he was speaking inside the House of Commons where he enjoys parliamentary privilege which grants him full immunity to any libel claims. It is a quite preposterous abuse of parliamentary privilege.
I, on the other hand, don’t enjoy parliamentary immunity, so for the record let me issue a public challenge to Robert Halfon – a member of the Conservative Friends of Israel:
Robert Halfon – you are a total and utter coward, much like the members of the murderous Israeli Defence Forces. Whereas the IDF like to hide inside their tanks while firing shells at little children, you hide inside the House of Commons while making your libellous comments. Try and find the guts to repeat exactly the same comments in public, you little weasel. I won’t be holding my breath.
