In today’s world, America cannot simply say: Israel! You’re on your own. It wouldn’t work, and one of the reasons it wouldn’t work is because of the very influential Jewish Lobby in America.
That consists of powerful interest groups that are deeply committed to shaping American foreign policy in ways that work to the benefit of Israel.
The backbone of such interest groups is the American Israeli Public Affairs Committee, better known as AIPAC.
AIPAC is aimed at pressuring the US politicians into maintaining close relationships with the Zionist regime. It was set up shortly after the occupation of Palestine and for decades AIPAC has been acknowledged as one of the strongest lobbying groups in Washington. It is claimed that AIPAC has over a hundred thousand supporters across the United States.
While AIPAC is known as the main Israeli Lobby within the United States, the activities of scores of evangelical Christians as parts of the Israeli Lobby are well documented. They all set out to defend the Zionist regime’s interests and hush any criticism of Israel. They have major radio-television ministries in America, supporting Zionism. These are the facts that are commonly known across the political atmosphere around the world.
But how about the United Kingdom? How influential is the Zionist Lobby in Britain? Is it wrong to say that the Zionist Lobby has an outsized influence in the United Kingdom’s foreign and even domestic policies? And what are the most influential Zionist lobbies in Britain?
By 2002, there was not much talk about the Israeli Lobby in the United Kingdom. Today it’s different, although that would be explosive and controversial. It is now evident that British policy is influenced by supporters of the foreign regime. The Israeli Lobby is bankrolling British politicians across almost all political parties. The Zionist Lobby in Britain is good at playing with two cards: Political power and Propaganda. Zionist friends in power!
What is clear is that support for the Zionist regime has a presence in all main British political parties. They are active in trying to define the debate in order to limit the options that British politicians can choose, to options, which would be acceptable to the Israeli regime interests.
Aside from raising cash, some of the Pro-Israeli lobbies in the Parliament also pay for trips to occupied Palestine. They have sent almost as many MPs and candidates on trips to Israel as it has been made by all MPs to the United States and Europe combined.
It is evident that there is a connection between the surprisingly soft line the British politicians’ take towards the Zionist state and the pattern of pro Israeli donors to the political parties. No one, even the Zionist Lobby claims that the donations to the British politicians come with no strings attached.
The Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) is one of Westminster’s most active Zionist lobbying groups. It claims that its members consist of 80% of all Tory Members of Parliament. The British Prime Minister and the Leader of the Conservative Party, David Cameron is a known as a hardcore Israeli supporter. Prior to his election, he said: “if I become prime minister, Israel has a friend who will never turn his back on it”. Upon his election as the British Prime Minister, he has demonstrated his “unbreakable” solidarity with Israeli crimes.
Even now while the horrified world is witnessing the Israeli war crimes, Cameron staunchly reiterates his support for what he called “Israel’s Right to Self-Defense”.
The current Vice Chairman of the Conservative Party is in fact the Former Chairman of the Executive Board of the Conservative Friends of Israel. Richard Harrington the Conservative MP for Watford is also Director Of The Number 10 Club, One of the Conservative big donor clubs which in return for an annual membership donation of up to £50,000 to party funds, will arrange for anyone to have tea with Cameron or other high-ranking go officials.
Approximately, 110 MPs, eight Government Secretaries and forty Peers are members of the CFI. Among them names such as Philip Hammond (Foreign Secretary),William Hague (Former Foreign Secretary), Malcolm Rifkind (The Chairman of The Intelligence And Security Committee), Michael Gove (Government’s Chief Whip And Former Secretary Of State For Education), George Samuel Young (Secretary Of State For Education), Theresa May (Home Secretary), Jeremy Hunt (Secretary of State for Health), Iain Duncan Smith (Secretary of State for Work and Pensions), Eric pickles (Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government), George Osborne (the Chancellor of the Exchequer and Second Lord of the Treasury), Alistair Burt (Parliamentary Under Secretary Of State For Foreign And Commonwealth Affairs), and Liam fox ( Former Secretary Of State For Defense) could be found.
Nevertheless, that is not all.
It Was under Tony Blair, the Former Prime Minister and the Leader of Labour Party that the Israeli Lobby first acquired real influence in the British Government. Former Chairman of the Labour Friends of Israel Jon Mendelsohn, Boasted that “Zionism Is Pervasive in New Labour. It’s Automatic That Blair Will Come to Labour Friends of Israel Meetings.”
The labour friends of Israel consist of 37 MPs along with 16 Peers. The LFI sends even more MPs to Israel than the CFI. Along with Tony Blair, Figures such as Edward Balls (Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer), Douglas Alexander (Shadow Foreign Secretary), Andy Burnham (Shadow Secretary of State for Health), David Blunkett (Former Home Secretary), Gordon Brown (Former British Prime Minister), Stephen Byers (Former Secretary Of State for Transport), John Reid (Former Home Secretary) and Lord Foulkes of Cumnock are staunch supporters of the Zionist state in the British Parliament’s Labour Party.
In addition to corrupting the British political establishment, the Zionist Lobby in Britain is so keen to keep control of media as a public leverage. BICOM (Britain-Israeli Communications and Research Centre) is one of the most well funded Pro-Israeli Lobby Groups in Britain infiltrating UK politics in a bid to control the media.
The propaganda machine in favor of the Zionist regime was established in 2001during the second Intifada. BICOM tends to close down any sort of debate about Israel. They Say “You have to be totally supportive of Israel whatever it does, full stop!”
WikiLeaks has revealed that information about BICOM’s ties with the British media was important enough to be counted as intelligence that can be sold to big multinational companies.
The details of BICOM feeding propaganda to the BBC, the Financial Times and Sky News are well documented aiming to guarantee that the media objectively propagate favorable opinion about Israel.
BICOM Chairman is Poju Zabludowicz Who contributed to David Cameron’s Campaign Funds. As well as the Chairman, he is also bankrolling BICOM.
Zabludowicz is ranked as one of the top 20 richest men in Britain and his father made a fortune selling Israeli artillery and mortars around the world. One of BICOM spin doctors Ruth Smith is now selected by Ed Miliband, the Labour Leader as a candidate for the safe seat of Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove.
In addition to BICOM, the Conservative and Labour Friends of Israel, there are of course other lobbies on behalf of Israel in Britain. Groups such as Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel, the Jewish Leadership Council, the Zionist Federation and the Board of Deputies of British Jews.
What’s unique about the Pro-Israeli Lobby is that they have such good access to politicians, they often operate behind the Scenes, and they have primary regard to the Interests of a foreign regime.
Well! If you are so surprised about the British establishment shameful silence about Israeli crimes in Gaza, don’t be.
Britain is taken hostage by the Zionist Lobby.
