Talking to the Jewish News, Britain’s biggest online Jewish newspaper, the former foreign secretary and Tory leadership hopeful, reiterated his uncritical support for the Zionist regime and its Apartheid-style policies.
By extension, Johnson promised to get tough on Iran by re-instating nuclear-related sanctions.
Johnson’s effusive support for Israel will not come as a surprise to anyone; he declared his “passionate” support for Israel in July 2014, during Israel’s brutal summer war on Gaza.
The comments are also not surprising in view of the Zionist penetration of the British political establishment. Johnson is a member of the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) which has been described as the “largest” Pro-Israel organization in Western Europe.
Described as the most “well-connected” and “best-funded” lobbying group in Westminster, CFI boasts 80 percent of Conservative MPs in its ranks.
But the Zionist penetration of the British political establishment does not stop with the Conservative party. Similar to CFI, the Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) works to consolidate Israeli influence in the Labour party, within parliament and across government when the party is in power.
LFI is widely believed to be opposed to labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who, unlike other British political leaders, refuses to extend unquestioning support to the Zionist regime.
As part of a broader effort to overthrow Corbyn, LFI and allied groups have focussed on the labour party’s supposed “anti-Semitism” problem. Critics of LFI and veteran labour party activists accuse the LFI, and allied groups, of using the charge of anti-Semitism to silence critics of the Zionist regime within the labour movement.
Meanwhile, the Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel (LDFI) is even more vocal in its support for the Zionist regime than its equivalents in the labour and Tory parties.
The LDFI’s President, Alan Beith, who retired as an MP in 2015, dissents from the Liberal Democrats’ official position of supporting the two-state solution.
In a letter to a constituent in October 2014 he justified his opposition to the formation of a Palestinian state on the grounds that more “negotiation” was required.
British political analysts are often at pains to point out that, in view of the Zionist lobby’s strong grip on all three main political parties, the UK is effectively unable to assert its own national interest vis-à-vis the Israeli occupation of Palestine.
By the same token the UK is unable to assert an independent foreign policy in respect to major foreign policy issues, notably with regards to Iran.
