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.

England! What of England is it the USAF aircraft carrier? Is it a small part of Europe? Or is it the seat of the powers that Empirically strip the world of its dignity, I personally believe that these seats are spread far and wide, all I know is I am ashamed when I now say I am an Englishman and I sorely wish I were not ashamed, for that England was a Dream that nearly came into being, but now blood is everywhere.
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.
If truth be told, it did not take “a few years” for the Jews to inflict “unbelievable levels of persecution” on the indigenous people of Mandate Palestine; the persecution began in earnest in 1939 against the British, the British Mandate Government established in 1922 by the League of Nations to maintain order and peace in Palestine. The Zionists undertook “a war against the British Mandate Government, its Police and Soldiers” while it lobbied and subverted the MP’s in Westminster with propaganda and money.
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.
David Ward MP: “Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”
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?
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.
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.
Israel’s largest newspaper, Yedioth Aharonot, claimed “diplomatic sources said both London and Paris were considering the unprecedented step of recalling their ambassadors to Tel Aviv.
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.
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?
Alistair Burt – UK’s Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs says: “Israel is a non-nuclear weapons state”… duh!!!
Since Balfour Declaration of 1917, Britain has denied Palestinians their rights. Diplomats discourage Palestine’s bid for “observer state” status in the UN.
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.
Why would one Christian group snub another? How did these churchmen, far removed from the rotten reality, become experts on “security, dignity and peace” in the Palestinians’ struggle for freedom? Have they been there, rolled up their sleeves and immersed themselves in the snakepit that the Holy Land has been allowed to become? What makes them think they’ve found a way forward while Palestine remains under brutal occupation?
With David Miliband heading up foreign policy it was frankly embarrassing to be British. What sort of transformation has the groveller undergone that makes him now worthy of an invitation to MAP? Has he become a new White Knight championing the Palestinian underdog against the evil occupier?
Since 1945, more than a third of the membership of the United Nations – 69 countries – have suffered some or all of the following. They have been invaded, their governments overthrown, their popular movements suppressed, their elections subverted and their people bombed. This has been principally the project of the liberal flame carrier, the United States. In the Middle East, from Nasser’s time to Syria today, western liberalism’s collaborators have been Islamists, lately al-Qaeda, while longdiscredited notions of democracy and human rights serve as rhetorical cover for conquest, “as required”. Plus ça change.
Stuart Littlewood argues that, with the USA’s intelligence agencies concurring that Iran has no nuclear weapons programme, Washington’s and London’s clamour for ever tighter sanctions and war with Iran appear to be motivated not by national interests, but by loyalty and obedience to Israel and its lobbies.
Stuart Littlewood questions the ethics of British politicians and church leaders who profess a commitment to Christian values but look the other way, actively support or are content to be identified with Israel while it commits crimes against the people of Palestine – Christians and Muslims.
The American and British publics have been shamefully caught up in more than enough zionist warmongering plots. Iraq, which we subjected to 12 years of cruel sanctions and subsequently bombed back to the Stone Age, killing hundreds of thousands, was never our enemy. Libya was not our enemy. Iran is definitely not our enemy. Nor is Afghanistan; nor Syria; nor Lebanon; nor Palestine; nor Egypt.
Why are we hearing non-stop, loud-mouthed sabre-rattling against Iran when we should be extending the hand of friendship and reconciliation? Why the West are demonising Iran instead of righting the wrongs? Why not live and let live? Because the political establishment is still smarting. They are the new-generation imperialists.
Is there a neo-con cell of senior ministers and officials, co-ordinating with Israel and the United States, and keeping their designs hidden from the Conservatives’ coalition partners?
Media reports suggest that Britain will again betray the Palestinian people in the UN vote tomorrow on whether to recognise the Palestinian territories as an independent state.
Are we expected to believe that Israel’s leaders, given their lawless and belligerent track record, are saner than Iran’s Ahmadinejad? Washington and London may believe such tosh but I doubt if anyone in the Middle East would. Or anyone else in Europe for that matter. A European Commission survey finds that the public believe Israel to be the biggest threat to world peace, greater than North Korea, Afghanistan or Iran.
The champion of Israel within the British government, an Israel flag-waver, defence secretary Dr Liam Fox, decided to jump rather than be thrown from the battlements.
The only thing that stands between all of us and the next holocaust is international law and treaty provisions such as universal jurisdiction. But who cares? Not the U.S. or British governments and not the Zionists.
Note the old trick of emphasising Israel’s security while planting the idea that Palestine must make do with a barely “viable” existence. You never hear these jokers talk about a secure Palestine and a viable Israel.
Meet the Godfather: Wendi Deng reveals that Tony Blair is godfather to one of the media tycoon – Rupert Murdoch’s young children.
Stuart Littlewood views Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams’s failure to acknowledge the role played by Israel’s occupation in the haemorrhaging of Christian populations from the Holy Land and recalls previous occasions where the archbishop behaved as if he were “a closet Zionist like so many other so-called Christians”.
My friends, you have not yet recognized that we are at war within our country. We are living on capital, on the fat accumulated by past generations of inventors, builders and social reformers. It will soon be gone and our war will become exactly like those of Tunisia, Egypt or Syria. Perhaps like Afghanistan. You don’t believe it? Just look at the speed of collapse in Greece.
