Whenever a Western leader expresses adoration and undying support for the Zionist regime, the Jewish Chronicle can be relied on to make the most of it. This week it reports on UK Prime Minister David Cameron’s Chanucah/Hanukkah reception in Downing Street when he lit a menorah (that elegant 9-branch candlestick) with the Chief Rabbi.
Little Cameron and wee Hague are grounded, so Obama will have to play with his cruise missiles on his own, or with François. What it means is that British foreign policy may now get the thorough overhaul it has long needed.
Stuart Littlewood considers the latest Israeli stooge on Britain’s political scene, the UK Independence Party (UKIP), whose allegiance to Israel completes a circle of allies that has some of Europe’s most odious parties.
If you call yourself “the Jewish State” (even though it’s really a Zionist state), and tell everybody it’s the “Jewish Homeland” and hide behind the Jewish faith, your crimes will inevitably reflect badly on ‘the Jews’, or Jewish people generally. So how is this new language rule going to work? In what circumstances, exactly, mustn’t David Ward or other Liberal Democrats use that dreaded phrase ‘the Jews’?
The challenge to Zionist’s unspeakable behaviour is not going away, nor should it until the regime’s attitude changes fundamentally and the occupation ends. In the meantime those who support, defend and perpetuate it must accept some of the blame.
The UK Liberal Democrats track record is one of gutlessness and hypocrisy. They have the oldest Friends of Israel setup in the British parliament and now are in coalition with the Conservative Party, 80 percent of whose MPs are said be signed-up Friends of Israel. What an appalling bunch of people, this admiration society who promote the ambitions of some of the worst criminals on the planet.
How could the Palestinians possibly go wrong with all that expertise and communications firepower behind them? Yet none of these noble tasks ever seems to get done. The PLO explains very little, doesn’t even try to mobilize international civil society, and lets Israel run propaganda rings round it.
Why is the newly-empowered Palestine, fresh from its victory, still asking us to do the donkey-work? Now that access to the proper UN legal machinery is available for Palestinians, it is ridiculous to claim that EU and other sanctions are “the only way” to halt Israel’s illegal settlement campaign and salvage the two-state solution. Did 138 nations vote to upgrade Palestine’s UN status for nothing?
Christians in Palestine are not suffering persecution, because we are not considered to be a religious community, but rather the people of Palestine. We have the same rights and the same obligations.
Fr Manuel says, “peace is possible if justice is possible,” so get off your fat backsides and ACT to deliver JUSTICE.
Agent Cameron is very careful not to let the words ‘justice’ and ‘law’ pass his lips in connection with Israel’s illegal occupation of the Holy Land.
Palestinians of both factions (Hamas and Fateh), no matter how unified, will never succeed in re-framing the international discussion and “seizing their destiny” unless they undergo a crash course in media skills.
Civil society calls for trade sanctions but Hague says EU has ‘no enthusiasm’. Now he shames us again by shirking firm action against the racist Israel’s endless land thieving and general lawlessness.
Why should Palestinians have to negotiate over Israel’s unlawful acts and haggle for their property in rigged talks when there’s proper recourse to the law? Israel’s pimps and hirelings are now exposed. No wonder the Zionist regime and its spin-masters are in such a flap.
On his big day Abbas said “It is time to move forward – that is why we are here today.” The way forward is already set out by international law and numerous UN resolutions, which are still waiting to be implemented. Therein lies justice.
British government twisted the arm of Abbas and told him the UK would only support Palestine UN bid if he pledged not to pursue Israeli war criminals through the International Criminal Court.
British ministers should not in future quote figures for Palestinian rockets unless accompanied by corresponding numbers of Israel’s. These should then be cross-checked with Palestinian and independent sources for proper monitoring.
Hamas should be accepted as a key player in the diplomatic process from now on. Israel comes out of Gaza war smelling even worse than before and is now universally despised.
And after the ceasefire, oppression will resume, the land-grab will continue, more rewards for Israel will flow. And it will be business as usual for Western leaders and their Zionist friends.
What if Israel won’t comply? No problem: suspend all trade and technical cooperation. The international community must finally confront the problem it has created.
So there’ll be no lasting peace. History will just keep repeating itself and the torment for blameless citizens will continue on both sides of the Gaza border.
What if Hamas dumped all their rockets in the sea tomorrow? Would the illegal blockade be lifted? Would Gazans enjoy the same freedoms as other nations? Would Israel clear out of Gaza’s airspace permanently? Would the Israeli navy cease its piracy and stay out of Palestinian territorial waters? Would you and I be able to visit Gaza direct?
William Hague asks Gaza to de-escalate. This “Friend of Israel” bias is blatant. Shouldn’t he be calling for Israel to end its terrorism and occupation?
Palestinians must die in large numbers so that the psychopath Netanyuahu can win more votes in Israeli election. BBC seem happy to smooth the way for him.
Alistair Burt – UK’s Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs says: “Israel is a non-nuclear weapons state”… duh!!!
What has Abbas and his puppet regime achieve for Palestine and Palestinians during his over-prolonged Palestinian presidency. Nothing! Impeach Abbas, Now!
The EU is actually helping sustain the Israeli Occupation by importing fifteen times more from the illegal settlements than from the Palestinians themselves
Christian Friends of Israel support Israel bombing innocent civilians, demolishing homes and torturing children. All to serve the Lord and bless Israel.
By 1993 the Israel knew for certain that a Palestinian state could not be established in the West Bank. That is when they said, OK, we’ll begin negotiation.
Cameron came from nowhere with Jewish money behind him. He’s a self-declared Zionist, a rabid Israel-firster putting Israel’s interests ahead of the UK interests.
Israel’s hasbara training manual that teaches the art of sugar-coating and downright lying so that gullible audiences will easily swallow their poison.
