The madness of Lauren Booth
Lauren Booth has accused Israel of bombing its own citizens this morning on the Tel Aviv bus
You remember Lauren Booth, right? That hard left-wing convert who shills for the Iranian state media?
Yeah - that Lauren Booth, the patron of ex-Guantanamo detainee organisation CagePrisoners. The half sister of Cherie Blair.
Yeah - THAT Lauren Booth. The one who received a 'special VIP passport' from Ismail Haniyeh, the leader of Hamas.
Well, THAT Lauren Booth, as if she ever had it - has officially lost it.
This morning, Booth tweeted at the BBC's Jon Donnison about the Tel Aviv bus bomb, calling it a 'false flag' operation. For those of you unfamiliar with what false flagging is defined as, "covert operations designed to deceive in such a way that the operations appear as though they are being carried out by other entities".
Amongst conspiracy theorists, 9/11 was a 'false flag' operation carried out by the United States as an excuse to launch a war in the Middle East.
Booth is stating that Israel bombed its own citizens this morning in order to continue attacking Gaza.
She's probably still a bit miffed from when Ofcom decided she was a partisan shill. But there's really no need for this kind of ludicrous, offensive and completely unfounded claim. Tell her yourself. She tweets at @LaurenBoothUK.
