    Anti-Semitism

    As a Jew, I have been thinking about this subject, most recently because of the July/August Gaza war.  I believe that that war was a public relations success for Hamas and the Palestinians, and as far as achieving that result they could not have done better.  

    Whilst I am in no way privy to the thinking of the Hamas leaders, I can of course have my own thoughts and I state them below.  So what happened?  

    Hamas started firing thousands of rockets into Israel with the intention of killing Israelis.  Not a neighbourly thing to do!  How did they expect the Israelis to respond?  Send them boxes of strawberries?  I dont think so.  

    So Israel responded with force and that is what Hamas were hoping for.  Now, cunning Hamas had sited their rocket launchers in or near habitation, knowing that Israel, who had to defend their own citizens, would attack those sites, and they would lose Palestinian lives.  Now, any one life is valuable, and the loss of over 2000 lives is dreadful.  But to Hamas it was great publicity success  for their cause.  “See what Israel has done, killed children, women, and men” people would say.

    Now the media came to their assistance of Hamas in a big way, in my view, particularly via TV news.  They showed the dreadful suffering in Gaza, broadcast a frequent count of the number of their deaths, also dreadful, but they omitted to show from where Hamas were firing their rockets, i.e., in or near to habitation.  I am unaware of any UK TV station showing this.  It would have been counterproductive to Hamas propaganda to do so.  Were the TV representatives ‘leant on’ by Hamas not to do so?  You'd have to ask Hamas.  Viewers would have been able to make a judgement as to why Israel responded as they did?  In fact they were responding to provocation by defending their citizens.

    Furthermore, Hamas had plenty of concrete to make shelters for their residents instead of building tunnels for offensive purposes.  Why did they not do so. You’d have to ask them!  

    I think Hamas planned the whole operation, and were very successful for the Palestinians, and particularly so in influencing world opinion in their direction.

    A major result the war has been an upsurge in anti-semitism in many countries  around the world and promoting the cause of the Palestinians through deceptive propaganda.  Hamas did not care enough for their own citizens.

    The electorate voted with respect for Israel by booting Galloway out of Westminster

    Even though we have been left with a very ambiguous election result with an unprecedented "hung parliament," there is one result that most people in Britain may be pleased about.

    Without even showing up at the count, Galloway came third in the Poplar and Limehouse constituency and is now out of Westminster, This is the man who under the banner of the "Respect" Party, showed absolutely no respect to the State of Israel. 

    Driven by anti-zionist hatred and an extreme left wing agenda, George Galloway and the Respect Party had a disastrous election result with their share of the vote halving to around one tenth of one percent of all votes cast. As they say on their own website "there is no hiding from reality. The 2010 General Election was not a good day for Respect."

    Fortunately, with the removal of the Respect Party from the House of Commons and the Party's clear decline in popularity, Israel's enemies have endured another huge blow in their efforts to undermine Israel's right to exist.

    Serious threat to Anglo Jewry posed by supporting Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats

     

    Enjoyed the Leaders Debates in Britain? Found Nick Clegg cute and appealing? Think again!

    Behind the Obama-clone charisma and charm there lurks a danger for Jews in Britain. Nick Clegg, Liberal Democrat leader, who is coming into the upcoming British elections in an enhanced position is close, very close, to Nadhmi Auchi.

    If you care about shady characters behind those who rule I suggest you indulge yourself in a crash course on Mr. Auchi. His personal fortune in excess of two billion Sterling makes him Britain's 32nd richest person. He has lived in Britain since 1980. 

    Nadhmi Auchi supports Hamas, providing aid and comfort to the terror group.Auchi has funded the notorious George Galloway in his 'Viva Palestina' aids convoy with which he tried to break the blockage on Gaza.

    Auchi recently said, "In the past the Arab community has not actvely participated  in British political life (!). I believe this is changing and we are now close to finding a party that is not only sympathetic to our views but whose policies actively seek to address our concerns".

    Nadhmi Auchi made these remarks at a fund raising banquet in honour of Nick Clegg. Auchi established the Anglo-Arab Organisation to promote understanding between Britain and the Arab world. Auchi funds one of the most anti-Israel, anti-Semitic, websites in Britain. Auchi's Middle East Online website promotes material from well-known anti-Israelis, including Jeff Gates who runs the anti-Israel 'Criminal State' blog.

    Lord Steel, former Liberal Democrats leader, is a director of Auchi's main company, General Mediterranean Holdings, the centre of his global empire that includes hotels, leisure, pharmaceuticals, and telecommunication firms. The banquet was organised under the Anglo-Arab Organisation banner.  Alan Duncan, a Conservative Shadow Minister, is listed as a patron.

    At the banquet, Clegg said that 'the Arab community's values sit deep in the soul of the Liberal Democrats. I feel that there is a conjunction of aspirations, hopes, and values between members of the British Arab community and many of the things that the Liberal Democracts stand for today'.

    The Liberal Democrat leader has condemned Israel's action in Gaza saying "We will not stand aside when unimaginable human suffering is taking place".

    Nadhmi Auchi was convicted of fraud in the French Elf-Aquitaine oil company trial in 2003. He was given a suspended sentence.

    Auchi is also involved in the case of a convicted Chicago fraudster, Tony Rezko, who was involved in a land deal with Barack Obama. A US court revoked Rezko's bail when prosecutors discovered that Auchi had wired Rezko $3,500,000 from a Lebanese account.  Auchi is banned from into the US.  Since 2003 Auchi has invested heavily in Iraq.

    In short, Nick Clegg is a puppet of Arab interests and connected with an Arab billionaire and fraudster.

    Clegg is not alone in his party for siding with Muslim and anti-Israel causes. The tongue of Jenny Tonge has exposed his party of openly anti-Israel sentiments. More recently William Wallace, importantly the Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman, openly boasted in front of the Jewish Board of Deputies that he had meetings with members of the Hamas terror organisation.

    He also threatened to torpedo the renewal of the Israel-EU trade agreement, thereby hinting at support for a boycott of Israel.

    Britain may already be lost to Muslim domination and interests but if Clegg is close to Downing Street power, as is likely following the televised debates, then caring British Jews can already hehe nails being driven into the coffin of their vital interests in that lost nation.

    My pre-Presidential predictions about Obama were spot on. They derived from a study of his close associates. As with Obama, you judge your politicians by those they associate with and are influenced by. These Clegg predictions will also, sadly, affect Israel and British Jewry.

    As did Americans, I expect the Brits to go for the cheesecake smiles and ignore the sub plot.

    A closing warning to Israel. Beware of the country with whom you share classified intelligence information. The leaders may be closer to your enemies than you think.
