Britain’s Zionist Inquisition in full cry

Anti-Zionism is not anti-Semitism

Their quarry: anti-racist Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn. Their weapons: anti-Semitism smears. Their purpose: to oust Corbyn and replace him with a compliant pro-Israel stooge.

By Stuart Littlewood

The row over anti-Semitism has erupted yet again in the UK Labour Party, as predicted a few months ago by Miko Peled, the Israeli general’s son, who warned that

they are going to pull all the stops, they are going to smear, they are going to try anything they can to stop Corbyn… the reason anti-Semitism is used is because they [the Israelis] have no argument…

So Israel’s pimps at Westminster, never happy unless they’re telling everyone what to think and say, are frantically insisting that the Labour Party adopts the discredited International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism in its unedited entirety and incorporates it into the party’s code of conduct. Many party members believe they have blown up the matter out of all proportion simply to settle their long-standing score – as Peled says – with the Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, a genuine anti-racist, champion of Palestinian rights and critic of Israel.

This is what the IHRA definition says:

“Anti-Semitism is a certain perception of Jews, which may be expressed as hatred towards Jews. Rhetorical and physical manifestations of anti-Semitism are directed towards Jewish or non-Jewish individuals and/or their property, towards Jewish community institutions and religious facilities.

It includes these 11 “contemporary examples of anti-Semitism:”

  • Calling for, aiding, or justifying the killing or harming of Jews in the name of a radical ideology or an extremist view of religion.
  • Making mendacious, dehumanising, demonising, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective — such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.
  • Accusing Jews as a people of being responsible for real or imagined wrongdoing committed by a single Jewish person or group, or even for acts committed by non-Jews.
  • Denying the fact, scope, mechanisms (e.g. gas chambers) or intentionality of the genocide of the Jewish people at the hands of National Socialist Germany and its supporters and accomplices during World War II (the holocaust).
  • Accusing the Jews as a people, or Israel as a state, of inventing or exaggerating the holocaust.
  • Accusing Jewish citizens of being more loyal to Israel, or to the alleged priorities of Jews worldwide, than to the interests of their own nations.
  • Denying the Jewish people their right to self-determination, e.g. by claiming that the existence of a State of Israel is a racist endeavour.
  • Applying double standards by requiring of it a behaviour not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.
  • Using the symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism (e.g. claims of Jews killing Jesus or blood libel) to characterise Israel or Israelis.
  • Drawing comparisons of contemporary Israeli policy to that of the Nazis.
  • Holding Jews collectively responsible for actions of the state of Israel.

Jewish community leaders are furious that Labour’s ruling body, the National Executive Committee (NEC), disagrees with four of these examples and refuses to include them in the party’s new code of conduct. The NEC, of course, is mindful that the code must be enforceable across half-a-million members with differing opinions, many of whom are tired of the constant whining. An emergency motion orchestrated by the Jewish lobby, forcing the NEC to take on board the whole IHRA package with all its examples and humiliating Corbyn in the process, was supposed to be considered yesterday but is now postponed till September.

The NEC explains its omissions by saying accusations of dual nationality are wrong rather than anti-Semitic. It strikes out altogether the idea that calling the state of Israel “a racist endeavour” is anti-Semitic, no doubt for the simple reason that it is racist. Israelis have for decades practised apartheid, casting their non-Jewish population as second-class citizens, and now it’s enshrined in their new nationality laws, in black and white. What’s more, Israel’s illegal occupation has denied Palestinians their right to self-determination for the last 70 years. The NEC also chooses not to forbid the use of symbols and images associated with classic anti-Semitism and comparing Israeli policy to that of the Nazis unless there’s evidence of anti-Semitic intent.

Sounds reasonable, you might think. But 68 rabbis have accused the Labour leadership of acting “in the most insulting and arrogant way” by leaving out or modifying those controversial bits. In a letter to the Guardian they say it’s not the Labour Party’s place to rewrite it.

The arrogance is theirs, I think. Here’s why. The House of Commons Home Affairs Select Committee recommended adoption of the IHRA definition of anti-Semitism subject to the inclusion of two caveats:

(1) It is not anti-Semitic to criticise the government of Israel, without additional evidence to suggest anti-Semitic intent.

(2) It is not anti-Semitic to hold the Israeli government to the same standards as other liberal democracies, or to take a particular interest in the Israeli government’s policies or actions, without additional evidence to suggest anti-Semitic intent.

The government agreed but dropped the caveats saying they weren’t necessary. Subsequently, the IHRA definition has run into big trouble, being condemned by leading law experts as “too vague to be useful” and because conduct contrary to the IHRA definition is not necessarily illegal. They warn that public bodies are under no obligation to adopt or use it and, if they do, they must interpret it in a way that’s consistent with their statutory obligations and with the European Convention on Human Rights, which provides for freedom of expression and freedom of assembly.

IHRA definition of anti-Semitism is deeply flawed

Crucially, freedom of expression applies not only to information or ideas that are favourably received or regarded as inoffensive, but also to those that “offend, shock or disturb the state or any sector of the population” – unless they encourage violence, hatred or intolerance. Calling Israel an apartheid state or advocating BDS [boycott, divestment and sanctions] against Israel cannot properly be characterised as anti-Semitic. Furthermore, any public authority seeking to apply the IHRA definition to prohibit or punish such activities “would be acting unlawfully”.

The right of free expression, as Labour’s Zio-Inquisitors ought to know, is now part of UK domestic law by virtue of the Human Rights Act. Furthermore, the 1986 Education Act established an individual right of free expression in all higher education institutions. Then there’s Article 19 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which bestows on everyone “the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers”. As always, such rights are subject to limitations required by law and respect for the rights of others.

So, the IHRA definition is a minefield. It’s not something a sane organisation would incorporate into its code of conduct – certainly not as it stands. It contravenes human rights and freedom of expression. But when did the crackpots in the Israel lobby ever care about other people’s rights?

The whole fuss borders on the farcical when you ask what anti-Semitism means. Who are the Semites anyway? Everyone avoids this question like the plague. Why? It’s embarrassing. DNA research shows that most of those living today who claim to be Jews are not descended from the ancient Israelites at all and the Palestinians have more Israelite blood. So they are the real Semites. Research by Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, published by the Oxford University Press in 2012 on behalf of the Society of Molecular Biology and Evolution, found that the Khazarian Hypothesis is scientifically correct, meaning that most Jews are Khazars. The Khazarians converted to Talmudic Judaism in the 8th Century and were never in ancient Israel.

Probably no more than 2 per cent of Jews in Israel are actually Israelites. So, even if you believe the propaganda myth that God gave the land to the Israelites, He certainly didn’t give it to Netanyahu, Lieberman and the other East European thugs who rule the apartheid state.

As former Israeli Director of Military Intelligence, Yehoshafat Harkabi wrote:

It would be a tragic irony if the Jewish state, which was intended to solve the problem of anti-Semitism, was to become a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism. Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also Jews throughout the world.

Well, that tragic irony has come to pass. As has been suggested before, so-called anti-Semitism is a matter best resolved by the Jewish ‘family’ itself. There’s no reason to bother Corbyn or the Labour Party with it.

Light at the end of Britain’s Zionist tunnel?

Jeremy Corbyn

If Jeremy Corbyn wins leadership of the UK Labour Party foreign policy could take a turn for the better

By Stuart Littlewood

Britain suffered another disappointment last week when Tim Farron, a lightweight with the gift of the gab, landed the job of leader of the UK’s Liberal Democrats. They are the fools who sold their principles for a taste of power and entered into coalition government with David Cameron’s Tories in 2010. The wages of that sin were a crushing defeat in this year’s general election, which saw their MPs plummet from 57 to a miserable eight.

Farron is a born-again Christian and wears it on his sleeve.

Another Friend of Israel – but “it’s breath smells”

The Jewish Chronicle reported that Farron’s candidacy for leader was backed by senior British Jews in the party and he’d said he would have “no truck” with anti-Semitism if elected leader.

Tim Farron says he wants “to defend Israel’s right to security in her borders” but Israel refuses to define its borders

Reflecting on the Israel-Gaza “war” last summer, Farron remarked:

It was disproportionate – I thought the Israel government did behave in ways that were counterproductive to her own interests. Clearly, there was blame on both sides; both sides are victims and both sides are aggressors.

My advice to the Israeli government then – and my view now – is I want to defend Israel’s right to security in her borders. Sometimes Israel makes it hard for us. I am a friend of Israel. Your best friends tell you when your breath smells.

Farron opposes BDS (the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement). “One of the things I want us to do is promote the party’s support of Israel as a state and people… The answer to the crisis is a two state solution – that has got to be our focus.”

From the way he talks you wonder if he’s been suckered into the ranks of Christian Zionism. Being an Anglican he risks coming under the influence of the CMJ (the Church’s Ministry among Jewish People) which was adopted as an official ministry of the Church of England in 1995 and has been operating in the shadows ever since. It is, if you like, the Anglican Church’s Zionist wing.

The CMJ says it recognises that the State of Israel was set up as a result of the United Nations 1947 Partition Plan but doesn’t have a view on the appropriate location of Israel’s borders. If the CMJ accepts the partition it should at least have regard to the borders on which it was based. As things stand, the CMJ is seen as approving greedy Israel’s continuing land-grab and lawlessness.

For someone who has never been to Palestine Farron is digging himself (and his party) into a remarkably deep pro-Israel hole. This is what comes of reading too many Bible fables.

Farron says he intends to visit Israel and the West Bank for the first time this year. It would be best if he keeps his mouth shut until he has seen first-hand the horrors of Israel’s occupation, dispossession and oppression of Muslim and Christian Palestinians and the living hell of the brutal blockade of both Gaza and the West Bank – that’s right, Palestinians lead wretched lives also trapped in the shredded remnants of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Two Ultra Orthodox Jews look at graffiti on the wall of a church reading in Hebrew “King David king of the Jews and Jesus is garbage, Price tag” on 9 May 2014 in Jerusalem near the ultra-Orthodox neighbourhood of Mea Sharim.

He should pick his way through Gaza’s wasteland of rubble and reflect on who are the real victims. He should meet Gaza’s prime minister Ismail Haniyeh over coffee and ask himself who are the real aggressors. Farron told the Jewish Chronicle that he understood the importance of religious practices. Well, in the Holy Land he’ll see the effect of sickening religious malpractice. Let’s hope it pricks the cosy, conceited bubble of Farron’s supernatural fantasy world.

Gaza City’s al-Shejaiya neighborhood, destroyed by the Israeli Wehrmacht during the blitzkrieg of 2014

As a Christian needing to know the facts of life he should visit the Holy Land as a guest of the Church – preferably the Catholic Church which has a wide presence and probably the best intelligence in the Middle East. But I’ll wager that his trip will be the usual Friends of Israel brainwashing junket hosted by Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs. He’ll come home with his Zionist tendencies greatly inflated and his head full of lies.

So the Liberal Democrats’s new leader has all the makings of an Israeli stooge. In which case he’ll have plenty in common with that self-proclaimed Zionist freak and Israel worshipper, our warmongering prime minister, David Cameron. In spite of Israel’s continual war crimes – especially those committed during last summer’s 51-day assault on the women and children of Gaza – it’s business as usual with Israel as far as the Cameron government’s arms dealing is concerned.

His latest mission is to buy lots more drones to counter the “Islamic State” threat. What is the betting he’ll do a reciprocal deal with Elbit in Israel? He’s probably keen to appease the Israeli regime for the demonstrations and activist occupations at Elbit’s factory in Staffordshire which is believed to supply engines for Elbit’s Hermes drones that are used to terrorise and slaughter Palestinian civilians in Gaza.

And take a look at this description of Israel Aerospace Industries’ Harop suicide drone. It loiters over the target then dives into it like a missile. Once launched, they say, it is impossible to cancel the mission!

Is this the next toy Mr Cameron is going to bring home for his armchair killers?

That’s the bad news. Now for something refreshingly different.

The Corbyn challenge promises to be fun

The Labour Party too is seeking a new leader after Ed Miliband’s predicted downfall. In the ensuing contest a maverick outsider has pulled ahead in the polls to become the shock-horror favourite. Jeremy Corbyn, a veteran peace campaigner, an MP of 32 years’ standing and a prominent pro-Palestinian is likely to cause huge upset if he wins through. The other front-runners Andy Burnham and Yvette Cooper, instrumental in spectacularly losing the general election, both voted for the Iraq war and against an inquiry into it (according to theyworkforyou.com). Corbyn’s intervention is therefore causing panic among Labour Party grandees who are threatening to call the leadership contest off.

It goes without saying that the mainstream media are working feverishly to trash Corbyn. Branded a “bearded socialist voter-repellent” by one Tory rag, Corbyn is clearly a worry for the right and the Israel-firsters. A headline in The Telegraph screamed: “Jeremy Corbyn, friend to Hamas, Iran and extremists… If Jeremy Corbyn wins, Labour will be in the extraordinary position of having a leader with among the most extensive links in Parliament to terrorists”.

The Independent reports that Labour MPs are plotting a coup against Corbyn before Christmas if he wins the leadership and that few of the existing shadow cabinet would wish to serve under him.

This video clip shows an attempt by Channel 4 TV’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy, in bull-boy mode, to humiliate Jeremy by harping on about whether Hamas are Jeremy’s “friends”. Hamas and Hezbollah are certainly not Britain’s enemies, so what was Krishnan’s point? Hamas, let’s remind ourselves, was set up in the late 1980s to resist Israel’s brutal and illegal occupation of Palestine. Since 2006 it has been the democratically elected power but is presently confined to the Gaza Strip after an attempt to overthrow it by losers Fatah in cahoots with Israel, the US, UK and European Union.

Hezbollah was created in the wake of Israel’s 1982 invasion of South Lebanon to resist the continuing occupation and further Israeli aggression, including the 2006 war.

Hamas is regarded as a terrorist organisation only by Israel’s allies, not the rest of the world. As The Telegraph should know, Hamas’s military wing (the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades) is proscribed in the UK but not its political wing, so Hamas should obviously be included in peace talks. The same goes for Hezbollah which has seats in the Lebanese parliament. The real problem is the subservience of the Tories and Labour (and our mainstream media) to Israel and its expansionism. Eighty per cent of Tory MPs and MEPs are said to be signed-up Friends of Israel and will do nothing to upset that rogue regime or derail its evil schemes.

Note how the UK government will not lift a finger to break the crippling eight-year siege of Gaza or protect humanitarian flotillas from Israeli assault on the high seas, but would happily bomb the hell out of Libya, Syria or anywhere else the US/Israel axis points its finger.

The struggle against Israel is central to the raison-d’etre of both Hamas and Hezbollah. The West complains that they are supported by Syria and Iran, hence the hostility of our politicians and media. But so what? Israel, Saudi Arabia and other deeply unpleasant regimes are heavily supported by the US.

Corbyn is nobody’s fool. His appearance on the stage could be great fun as well as hugely important.
