British-Palestinian schoolgirl gets kicked out of public speaking competition due to Zionist bullies

Last week the above video went viral when a 15 year old spoke out as part of a public speaking competition for so eloquently speaking about Palestine.

British-Palestinian Leanne Mohamad, a 15-year-old student, won a regional final of the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge with her speech ‘Birds not Bombs'.

Online people applauded the eloquence of the speaker and many congratulated her both for the content and her success.

Not everyone.

Cue the Israel supporters and trolls going on their own mission to victimise this young speaker.

Their aim is to prevent solidarity with Palestinians and to prevent speech attacking Israel (while simultaneously asking for free speech - in support of Israel).

Leanne has now been expelled from the competition, in what is a shicking act of bullying by pro Israel supporters and zionists who could not let even a child speak out with hope, a message promoting children to hear birds not bombs.

Leanne in social media had shared content that was hateful of Israel and jews. This was a (less than) 15 year old who had been exploring her ideas online, only for master trolls and bullies to take issue with it. They could not attack the content of her public speaking submission, so they looked for other ways to attack her.

These same bullies who cry wolf now would have either been silent or cheering on the actions of Israel less than 2 years ago when Israel decided to attack Gaza and kill hundreds of children for political reasons.

For a child to not feel anger - especially when she has had close family members and relatives suffer from the occupation or be killed, would be inhuman. It is inhuman for these zionist trolls to victimise her and try to silence her.

This is another case of the boy crying wolf to silence criticism of Israel and if it keeps going on, it will only lose its power.

 There have been similar attempts first in Oxford University Labour movement where one person cried wolf causing a lot of problems for others, and also recently in the Labour party where there were attempts to smear the leader by crying wolf against words used by other party members - some of which were Jewish themselves. That was an attempt to silence criticism and smear the  labour leader at the same, time.

These bullies should note that opposing voices will not be silenced. People will continue to talk out against injustice, whether it be in Israel, Syria, Yemen, Iraq or elsewhere, whether against Muslims or not against Muslims, speaking out and standing up is the human thing to do.

However, we also need to act. We need to provide places for young people to publicise and discuss their views - even if erroneous and without full comprehension of all the facts, because these are children and young adults -  without the risk of being caught up in traps by the global zionist bullying. We need allow them to develop their ideas.

Interesting speech and well presented, i can see her going far in Politics, if she is allowed to. I mean allowed by fellow Palistinian hardliners, who believe a womans place is in the home having children.

These bullies should note that opposing voices will not be silenced. People will continue to talk out against injustice, whether it be in Israel, Syria, Yemen, Iraq or elsewhere, whether against Muslims or not against Muslims, speaking out and standing up is the human thing to do.

This is relevent whoever tries to prevent free speech, be they militant Islamist, or indeed militant Zionists. Her closing remarks "we are all the same, and what is being done is not true followers of Islam. The same augument can be made about ordinary Jews. Or indeed westerners who are both Atheists or Christians who get tarred with the guilt of what our western democratic? governments do.

Then again Erdogen appears to want to stop free speech [at speech that insults or derides him]

Turkish Prime Minister Binali Yildirim says a resolution expected to be approved by German lawmakers declaring the 1915 killings of Armenians a genocide will damage ties with Berlin.

So he his now trying to directly influence the the German Parliament to comply with his wishes to re-write history?

What is hi next move? Send his army into Europe to protect all the innocent oppressed Muslims, who have come to Europe for a better way of life, yet want to change the way of life for the majority of Europeans who have lived in Europe for millenia?

This was the excuse Heil Hitler used for the invasion of the Sudetenland. Sudetenland had once been ruled by the Germans. Would not this be a good enough reason to Erdogen, "after all the Ottoman Turks ruled Bulgaria and the Balkans once.
