Corbyn’s Expulsion : The Triumph of the UK’s Israel Lobby

Starmer’s removal of the party whip from Jeremy Corbyn for ”antisemitism” is scandalous, unjustified and unforgivable.

It is also an unmistakable indicator of the extent to which the Israel Lobby has penetrated English politics, and demonstrates its ultimate success in conflating anti-Zionism and the support of Palestinian rights with the bogus slur of antisemitism.

Bear in mind that the occupation of Palestinian territory and human rights violations by the Israeli State are illegal under international law. To shield a terrorist state by punishing criticism of it is , frankly, frightening for the future of morality and free speech in the UK.

Mass resignation from the Labour Party is the least that is now required.

Time to Stand Up and Be Counted  :

~ article by historian and former UK Ambassador Craig Murray

Today, nothing is more important than to say that we will not be silent on the dreadful oppression of the Palestinian people; the daily beatings, killings, humiliations, demolitions, expropriations and destruction of groves that are the concomitant of Israeli illegal occupation.

We will never be browbeaten into silence on the slow genocide of the Palestinian people.

Nobody with any grasp on the location of their right mind believes Jeremy Corbyn to be an anti-Semite. Nobody with any grasp on their right mind believes the Labour Party is now anything but the substitutes’ bench for the Neoconservative team. Under Keir Starmer, the Labour Party has failed to oppose the granting of legal powers to the security services to kill, torture, entrap, forge and fake with impunity. It has failed to oppose the limitation of prosecution of British soldiers for war crimes. The Labour Party now seeks to erase all trace that it might once have been a party that offered an alternative to the right wing security state.

As Director of Public Prosecutions, Keir Starmer pressurised Swedish prosecutors who wished to drop the case against Julian Assange, to persist in order that he might be rendered to the USA. He further persuaded them not to interview Julian here, which is standard practice when he was never charged but only wanted for questioning, and which would have reduced Julian’s ordeal by four years.

Starmer received £50.000 in personal donations from lobbyist Sir Trevor Chinn to fund his leadership bid.

It is perfectly plain that Starmer’s aim in suspending Corbyn is to drive the mass membership that Corbyn attracted out of the Labour Party, and make it a reliable arm of the right wing security state. He wants the Labour Party to be financially dependent not on its members, who have annoying principles, but on donors like Chinn.

The media and political elite have attained their aim; there is no longer any point in voting in Westminster elections. A right wing government supporting the neo-con status quo and the ever tightening security state is now firmly guaranteed and cannot be influenced by a Westminster election.

Labour : Emasculated

StarmerCorbyn_optI have been prepared to give Keir Starmer the benefit of my doubt that he could provide effective opposition to the appalling current UK government, but in the space of 24 hours all hope has been dissipated.

First the new Labour leader bowed down to the rampant Zionist lobby in the media – and all the main political parties – by issuing an ”unreserved apology” to former Labour staff members and to the fanatical anti-Corbyn campaigner John Ware, the journalist who presented the evidence-free Panorama programme on Labour’s alleged ‘anti-semitism’. He even agreed to pay “substantial damages” to Ware and to seven so-called ‘whistleblowers’ over “defamatory and false allegations” made following the programme.

(By the way, how often must it be repeated that criticism of Israel’s worst excesses is NOT anti-semitism ? )

Now, at PMQs today, Starmer has called for the news channel RT to be banned (it is already refused air-time by Richard Branson’s Virgin Media, which tells its own story). ‘Sir’ Keir told the Commons: “One way the Government can seek to clamp down on Russian influence is to prevent the spread of Kremlin backed disinformation.”

But RT is the UK’s most informative TV news channel, providing truthful, objective coverage of events and offering a platform to dissident voices like George Galloway, Ken Livingstone, Alex Salmond and others whose anti-neoliberal stance effectively disqualifies them from corporate media and that now abject government propaganda tool, the BBC.

There are even reports that Starmer is considering the removal of the Labour whip from Jeremy Corbyn, meaning that he would be booted out of the parliamentary party and become an independent MP.

I would hope for (and expect) a mass exodus of true radicals and socialists from the Party if he goes ahead with this, and Labour would deserve its subsequent marginalisation.

It’s apparent that Labour is now firmly in the grip of the Blairites and the Zionist lobby. Sad to say, as a vehicle for the progressive change and the new policies the UK so urgently needs, the once great Labour Party is now finished.

Petition : Call for the UK government to formally recognise the State of Palestine


I will not sign.

Sadly, there is no Palestinian state to recognize, within the 1967 or any other borders. These petitions achieve nothing and merely serve to delay the long-overdue death of the so-called ”two-state solution”, the illusion of which has guaranteed Israel’s survival as a Jewish racist state for decades.

Crucially, such token ‘recognition’ accepts Israel’s survival in its current racist form, and even aims to impose  arrangements that prevent Israel’s collapse.

Well-meaning liberals and progressives, inside Israel and outside, who advocate a ”Two-State” solution are choosing to ignore an alternative, based on the principle of equality for all, on the separation of state from religion, and on an end to discrimination and racial apartheid — a One-State Solution : Liberated Palestine !

The knee-on-neck, long a staple of Israel’s occupation of Palestine

knee on neck

While the world looks away, Palestinians living under military occupation in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank are subjected to extreme state-sponsored violence of the kind seen in the US last week, as a near everyday occurrence.

For one community, the disproportionate violence faced by black people at the hands of US police forces has special resonance as it reflects their own experiences with the authorities.

”Since the early 90s, hundreds of law enforcement officers, including police officers and agents from the FBI, CIA, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), have either been sent to Israel through police exchanges, or attended summits within the US that were sponsored by Israeli lobby organisations.

Police forces from Florida, New Jersey Pennsylvania, California, Arizona, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina, Georgia, Washington state and others have participated in the training, including one that took place in Minneapolis, the city where Floyd was killed.”

A Priti Disgraceful Appointment

priti

The appointment of  Priti Patel as the new UK Home Secretary is an utter disgrace.

This is an absolutely extraordinary appointment given that she was forced to resign in disgrace after being caught red-handed secretly colluding with a foreign government while she was International Development Secretary.

She secretly met 12 times with Israeli leaders, including Netanyahu – not once with Palestinians – without telling Boris Johnson or Theresa May, and freelanced UK-taxpayer funding to the IDF’s illegal occupation of Golan.

Two of Ms Patel’s secret meetings were with Gilad Erdan, Israel’s Minister of Public Security, Strategic Affairs and Minister of Information.. He has no developmental brief.  His ministerial brief is to suppress activism for Palestinian human rights in Israel and abroad. The purpose of Patel’s meetings with him, and the full agenda, need to be disclosed.

This treasonous woman, who should be in jail rather than promoted to one of the highest offices of the land, essentially worked as the agent of a foreign state embedded within the UK government,

”Israel First” : Trump’s True Foreign Policy

candidate trump”Don’t worry about American pressure. We the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it.”~ Ariel Sharon, former Prime Minister of Israel.

Israel controls the President, the Congress, the Senate, all major media outlets, and specifically American foreign policy in the Middle East through its Zionist arm The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC).

Every Congress candidate, of both parties, must sign an Israel loyalty pledge in order to get campaign funding. Any Congress member who does not sign the Israeli pledge is politically persecuted, vilified by the media, and does not get funded. Only one person currently in Congress, Minnesota Representative Ilhan Omar, has refused to sign this AIPAC Loyalty Oath to Israel.


“Israel First” – Behold Trump’s True Foreign Policy

Article by Dr. Elias Akleh, an Arab-American of Palestinian descent. His family was evicted from Haifa, Palestine after the 1948 Nakba when Zionists stole his family’s property. The family was evicted again from the West Bank during the 1967 Naksah, when Zionists  occupied the rest of Palestine.

The Terrorist State

egypt prisoners 1967

Ever since its formation in 1948, the state of Israel’s behaviour towards its Arab neighbours, and the inhabitants of the territories it occupies, has consistently been characterised by a level of inhumanity and depravity more egregious than is considered ”normal” even in conditions of war — whether it be killing unarmed demonstrators, journalists and medics in Gaza, torturing and sexually harassing Palestinians in Israeli prisons [ https://www.thejerusalemfund.org/…/sexual-harassment-and-vi… ], imprisoning children, deliberately bombing civilians – or here in this photograph from the 1967 war, humiliating Egyptian prisoners by removing their clothes and force-marching them in their underwear before killing them.

israel is a terrorist state

The current relentless attempts to conflate criticism of Israel with anti-semitism must never be allowed to succeed, or justice for the Terrorist State’s countless victims over the decades will never be served.

Israeli Elections : The Tyranny of Democracy

israel election2israel candidates

The candidates in the Israeli election campaign accurately reflect the desires and fantasies of an Israeli public which views the willingness to shed the blood of defenceless Palestinians caged in ghettos as the truest measure of leadership.
Each time the Israeli military embarks on a new round of wholesale slaughter in Gaza, polls show that more than 90% of Israelis support them.
A sociopathic individual can be arrested and imprisoned. A sociopathic nation poses a much bigger problem.

Pirates of the Caribbean

”You could scour the bowels of US imperial crimes, from the Mexican-American War to the Gulf of Tonkin in Vietnam, and you won’t find a more brazen, cynical act of gangsterism than that which is now underway against Venezuela.” ~ George Galloway

Before they drop the bombs, they drop the narrative of course, and the disinformation bombardment on Venezuela has been one of the longest bombing runs in history. Massive sums of US money have been spent on media distortion, subversion, sabotage, military coups, and threats of invasion, throughout the Chavez-Maduro era.

Anyone still wondering why the US is meddling in Venezuela’s affairs ? 🤔


elliot abrams

Elliot Abrams, the prominent Zionist neocon and Reagan / Bush era US administration hawk, who was convicted for his role in the Iran-Contra scandal (and then pardoned by President George H.W. Bush), has just been appointed by the Trump administration to take charge of overseeing the “restoration of democracy” (sic) in Venezuela.

Abrams played a key role in supporting death squads in El Salvador and Guatemala in the 1980s, and in the ”dirty war” against the Sandinista revolution in Nicaragua.

The appointment does not bode well for the people of Venezuela.

Benny Gantz : A Vote for Genocide

gantz.jpgBenny Gantz hopes to replace Benjamin Netanyahu as Israel’s prime minister in elections scheduled for April.

Gantz commanded the ‘Operation Protective Edge’ attack on Gaza in 2014, which according to an independent investigation commissioned by the UN Human Rights Council killed 2,251 Palestinians, including 1,462 civilians, 551 of them children.

In his election campaign (video below ) Gantz, like Netanyahu, is accurately reflecting the desires and fantasies of an Israeli public which views the willingness to shed the blood of defenceless Palestinians caged in ghettos as the truest measure of leadership.

Each time Israel embarks on a new round of wholesale slaughter in Gaza, polls show that more than 90% of Israelis support the killing.

A sociopathic individual can be arrested and imprisoned. A sociopathic nation poses a much bigger problem.
