Despite the outrageous comments, the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal accepted Mahmood’s claim that his remarks were made merely with regard to “Zionists”, and in no way suggested he was anti-Semitic. The tribunal did note that Mahmood’s 2016 post, referencing “God’s chosen people” was “a trigger phrase for the Jewish people”. Nevertheless, the tribunal refused to disbar Mahmood.
This is war, but unlike any other war in history. The genocidal ideology and doctrine is never spoken of, and if it is, it must be spoke of with respect and deference. Enemies of the genocidal ideology are targeted for smear and defamation. Adherents to the ideology are given special class status and protections from phantoms and bogeymen that have been created out of whole cloth.
