Human rights lawyer and Foreign Secretary form unlikely duo in fight against terrorism

lead1

Amal Clooney will team up with Boris Johnson later today to launch a new justice campaign on behalf of victims of the so-called Islamic State (IS).

The Doughty Street Chambers barrister has formed an unlikely alliance with new Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson to introduce a new British-led campaign to gather evidence of IS’s “abhorrent crimes”.

Clooney and Johnson will address the United Nations (UN) General Assembly in New York later today, urging world leaders to lend their support to a new initiative that seeks justice for victims of the notorious terrorist organisation.

Late last week, Clooney — who specialises in public international and human rights law — took the opportunity to fire shots at the UN over its failure to stop IS-related crimes.

Introducing Nadia Murad — who was captured in northern Iraq in 2014 and used as sex slave by IS — Clooney delivered an impassioned speech, which revealed she was “ashamed” that more had not been done to prevent the killing and enslavement of Yazidi men, women and children, Yazidi being the name given to Kurdish people who follow an old religion related to Zoroastrianism.

According to reports, Clooney and Boris will be joined by the Iraqi foreign minister, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, the Belgian foreign minister, Didier Reynders, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Prince Zeid bin Ra’ad, and human rights activist and IS survivor Murad.

Fresh reminder that Amal is nothing more than a junior barrister who married a Hollywood A-Lister.

I wonder whether she’ll ever go back to practising law, or whether she’ll persist with using her new surname to obtain platforms to lecture others on topics she has little understanding of.

tl;dr – go away, wench

She’s a Druze (Arab Unitarian religion) It’s literally an SWJ religion, they don’t bother studying sociology, anthropology or anything statistics that relate to the matter at hand.

You could say the pool at Clifford Chance is being oppressed with Poo and these guys will litigate between the two to come to a settlement without addressing the issue or knowing fuck all about it.

It’s not a troll , Don’t do those Sunni Imam taqqiya bullshit to mislead the kafir, Learn your religion properly. As an arab, in hajj i’d have authority over you as a south asian, it says in the hadiths to respect the meccans only, so do so.

Justice for victims? We should have thought about that before we bullied Iraq out of the Rome statute in 2005. A UNSC referral to the International Criminal Court is what will likely have to happen to deal with crimes both in Syria and Iraq, and given that Russia is in the UNSC, I doubt that will be happening anytime soon. I can practically taste the politics in this legal problem.

If Daesh are going to be brought to justice under international law, we may end up having another ad hoc international tribunal. And that’s if the senior figures are still alive by the end of hostilities. Failing that, the small fries we do capture could be left to Iraq and Syria’s crumbling justice system.

It’s all just a bit of a mess, really.

I’m a muslim who loves the UK and everything about it. These comments frighten me to death. Ignorance at its best.

The fact that you’re a powerful Muslim didn’t detract from the fact there are lots of violent Muslims. Whenever there is a terrorist attack in the western world, it’s almost always by Muslims. New York, London, Madrid, Paris, Brussels…most Muslims aren’t terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslim. I’m sorry that you have to suffer by association, but I’m not willing to open myself to the risk of getting blown up next time I’m on the tube just do you can pontificate about other people’s “ignorance”.

He’s most likely south asian, they know literally nothing about Islam. They just call themselves “Cultural Muslims” there’s no such thing as “Moderate”, “Moderates” are mainly south asians who know nothing about their religion hence they aren’t terrorists but when they actually learn arabic and actual Sunnism they fly of too ISIS.

Cognative Dissonance at it’s finest.

Whenever there is a terrorist attack full stop it is almost always a male. Most men are not terrorists but terrorist are almost always male…

Listen Akhi, If you bothered to read the Qur’an, Sahih al-bukari, Sahih al-muslim.

You’d find

– Statutory Rape
– Rape
– Sex Slavery
– Dominace over Women
– Child Marriage and sex

and a hell of alot more, You lot are the ones we’re scared of.

50% Of British Muslims believe Paedophilia is okay.
40% Hate jews and believe they did 9/11
60%!!! Sympathise with ISIS

I suggest you look up PEW research on Muslims in the U.K.

Oh you always manage to get triggered when people point out you’re mentally deficient, Trumpywumpy. Donald Trump is the same thing as Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi – getting gullible idiots to support him so that he can amass personal wealth and power and fiddle as many kiddies as he likes.

Haha of course you did mate. Did you take “how to assume that people on the Internet who don’t buy into your retarded views are Pakistani Muslims”? Must have been a blast.

Adam Deen

I thought you were the pakistani lad who was complaining about being a victim due to your poor false equivalence of Trump to Baghdadi.

Care to elaborate further?

The sooner you “Liberals” learn you’re equally as part of this problem as people like Baghdadi the better, You must have “White Guilt” or some other SJW leftie-symptom.

I understand this is just virtue signalling to make yourself feel better about being a white male which is apparently a bad thing nowadays.

As a Black/Arab, I forgive you, cognative dissonance only lasts so long.

Can’t wait for the typical white left wing middle class british lawyer reply of “Wot the fuk did you just say about me m8, i ‘ave 9 cornish pasties and served in afghani’fookin’stan m8, swear down m8, this is england m8, stop stee’lin me bacon, me booze and me benefits”.

Can we lose the weaselly ‘so-called’ please.

It’s ‘Islamic State.’ That’s its name. There’s nothing wrong with referring to entities/people by their name.

Do we go around saying ‘the so-called Real IRA?’ What about ‘the so-called Dear Leader?’ Or even ‘so-called Crapstone’ in Devon.

Just report the objective name. And let readers make up their own minds as to what (if anything) they think about that name. As we currently do for every single other name except, apparently, Islamic State.

Realistically, it cheapens our legal system to have qualified legal professionals indulging in such quasi-politico-legal endeavours such as the one Mrs Clooney seeks to undertake. It is a least arguable that she, by virtue of her ‘status’ (for want of a better word) has a duty beyond that of any other barrister (junior or otherwise) to not indulge in ventures such as these which seek to give the celebrity treatment to very serious legal and moral issues.

I honestly don’t know how Amal does it all. What, in between the meetings with couture houses and private shopping sessions and fittings, $500 blow-outs, manis, and private shoe fittings – and she actually has time to practise law? This woman is the very definition of LEANING IN – only in designer gear because a law degree counts for nothing if you don’t know how to carry off an asymmetric dress.

In the 1980s when the National Front (name changed daily) (A facist group for our younger listeners) used to try and sell its magazines in Brick Lane a group called Red Action used to wait until the coast was clear and then attack the NF mag sellers with baseball bats. Their argument was that it is impossible to reason with idiots. At the time I thought this was a bit hard line. However, along came the internet where all voices appear equal. The racists and misogynists hide behind their keyboards believing that the worst that can happen is a moderated post. Can somebody please invent a virtual baseball bat?

The reason why I doubt hardly anyone here is a law student or qualified is:

1. The failure to clarify terminology and acronyms:. eg: Adam asserts ‘ all south Asian Muslims know f**k all about religion’.

2. Gratuitous use of invective.

3. Argumentum ad hominems indicative of CAD (Compulsive Abuse Syndrome)

4. Failure to reference posts.

5. Clear symptoms of clinical psychiatric pathology, which is why I love this group
