The main news story of the past week in the UK has been the “anti-Semitism” row engulfing Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party. Before I throw my own hat into the ring on this issue I recommend reading the following series of articles on the subject by Richie Allen:
My opinion is that this anti-Semitism issue is yet another front in the ongoing war on freedom of expression in the UK. One target of this Orwellian crackdown will be those who want to openly discuss and criticise the immense power and influence wielded in the UK and US by the Israel lobbies. The three main political parties in the UK all have “Friends Of Israel” groups which work to pursue Israeli interests, while in the US the main Israel lobby is AIPAC (often referred to in Washington circles simply as “the lobby” due to its massive influence).
In 2016 an al-Jazeera undercover report exposed some of the devious machinations of Israeli operatives meddling in UK politics (view the four-part series here). In his article The Lobby: British Style former CIA officer Philip Giraldi writes:
“The documentary reveals that local Jewish groups, particularly at universities and within the political parties, do indeed work closely with the Israeli Embassy to promote policies supported by the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. It also confirms that tagging someone as an anti-Semite has become the principal offensive weapon used to stifle any discussion, particularly in a country like Britain which embraces concepts like the criminalization of “hate speech.” At one point, two British Jews discussed whether “being made to feel uncomfortable” by people asking what Israel intends to do with the Palestinians is anti-Semitic. They agreed that it might be.”
“The documentary also describes how the Embassy and local groups working together targeted government officials who were not considered to be friendly to Israel to “be taken down,” removed from office or otherwise discredited. One government official in particular who was to be attacked was Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan.”
Now imagine if similar activities were being run out of the Russian embassy. Certainly we would never hear the end of it. But when it’s Israel a quiet apology is issued, one of the operatives resigns, and all is forgotten… nothing to see here. Giraldi goes on to explain how the undercover series was thoroughly vetted by the UK broadcasting regulator Ofcom after some Jewish groups complained:
“On October 9th, Ofcom ruled in favor of al-Jazeera, stating that its investigation had done nothing improper, but it should be noted that the media outlet had to jump through numerous hoops to arrive at the successful conclusion. It had to turn over all its raw footage and communications to the investigators, undergoing what one source described as an “editorial colonoscopy,” to prove that its documentary was “factually accurate” and that it had not “unfairly edited” or “with bias” prepared its story.”
Pointing out Zionist/Israeli influence in the West is a taboo subject as former UKIP leader Nigel Farage discovered after making what were really rather tame comments on his LBC radio show about the power of the Israel lobby in the US. While talking to a caller Farage stated:
“there are about six million Jewish people living in America, so as a percentage it’s quite small, but in terms of influence it’s quite big… in terms of money and influence Israel has a very powerful lobby… there are other very powerful foreign lobbies in America, and the Jewish lobby, with its links with the Israeli government, is one of those strong voices.”
For this Farage faced a backlash from Jewish organisations and was reported to Ofcom for peddling “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories”. No doubt he’s learned his lesson and will never speak of such things again… truth be damned.
There could be much more said on the influence of Israel and its lobbies over UK and US politics but in the interests of time we’ll move on. For more on the topic I recommend the excellent Channel 4 documentary Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby.
Another target in all of this is the BDS Movement which stands for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions. This is a movement – mostly of people on the left but not exclusively – which calls for the boycott of goods produced in the illegal Israeli settlements. Needless to say the rise of this movement is not looked upon favourably by the Israelis and supporters of Zionism, therefore if criticism of Israel can be labelled anti-semitic then BDS can be smeared with that label and their message catagorized as hate speech.
Another target is those generally referred to as “Conspiracy Theorists”, especially those who believe that a globalist elite, headed up by high level freemasonry and international bankers, are controlling the world through a corrupt financial system based on debt enslavement and are attempting to socially engineer the world into a global economic and government system. The fact that Jews are heavily represented within this high level banking clique as well as many other influential areas of society – such as the media and Hollywood – leaves so-called “conspiracy theorists” open to being slapped with the anti-Semitism label.
The proof that conspiracy theorists are a target of this anti-Semitism hysteria is found in the comments of long-term Labour donor Sir David Garrard who recently quit the party saying that labour had “failed to expel many of those who have engaged in the grossest derogatory fantasies about Jewish/Zionist conspiracies – and Jewish characterisations and accusations which conjure up the very kind of anti-Semitic attacks that led to such unbearable consequences for innocent millions in the past.”
So do those who believe in this New World Order conspiracy theory view it as a “Jewish Conspiracy”? Well, some do and some don’t. It’s something they will argue about amongst themselves until the cows come home but one area they do tend to agree on is the notion that Zionism is a creation of the masonic/banking elite and has it’s role within the overall conspiracy, particularly with regards to the middle-east region as well as helping to stamp out any ethnic nationalism in the West via it’s lobby groups and activist organisations which push for hate speech laws and cultural Marxism. It should be noted here that Zionism is not the same thing as “the Jews” and was, in fact, rather unpopular among Jews before World War II and still remains unpopular with many to this day.
The fact is that conspiracy theorists actually have a lot of perfectly valid things to say about the way our world is run and the systems of power and control we all live under. Anti-Semitism hysteria makes for a useful weapon to beat them down with when they try to warn their fellow man about this globalist clique. Even those who do believe that the New World Order conspiracy is run by Jews generally don’t blame all Jews any more than they blame all Italians for the Mafia. They don’t oppose the conspirators because of their Jewishness, they oppose them because of their actions and their megalomania. They would oppose the globalist agenda regardless of who was behind it. But the anti-Semite smear is perfect for the global elite as it allows them to completely marginalise and demonise anyone who speaks of their existence or criticises the financial systems they have created.
So now we come to the main target of all this “outrage” over anti-Semitism: the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn. What might be the reason for all this? In the al-Jazeera exposure of Israeli meddling in the UK, Israeli operative Shai Masot expresses concern that incoming Labour MPs have recently been less willing to sign themselves up to the Labour Friends of Israel organisation. Phillip Giraldi writes in his piece Taking Down British Officials:
“It was also learned that Masot had been secretly subsidizing and advising two ostensibly independent groups, the parliamentary Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) and the Labour Friends of Israel (LFI). Masot did, however, express concern that Israel’s control over incoming parliamentarians was not quite what it used to be: “For years, every MP that joined the parliament joined the LFI. They’re not doing that any more in the Labour Party. CFI, they’re doing it automatically. All the 14 new MPs who got elected in the last elections did it automatically.””
So here we have a motive for targeting Labour: to coerce Labour MPs to join the LFI out of fear of being branded anti-Semites if they don’t. But there is another reason for what we’re seeing. One that’s aimed at Jeremy Corbyn specifically.
Jeremy Corbyn may seem perfect for pushing Globalism because of his (and his supporters) penchant for cultural Marxism but where he falls short, as far as the Zionists and Globalists are concerned, is his foreign policy. He is seen as too much of a peacenik and can’t be relied upon to send UK troops off to fight and die in the desert for Israeli and globalist interests. Anyone who doesn’t know by now that the Iraq war was a war for Israel really hasn’t been paying attention. Other regime change operations – such as the removal of Gadaffi in Libya and the (currently failing) regime change op in Syria (using jihadist proxies) – have all been part of long term Israeli strategy for decades. It’s a strategy of taking down strong anti-Israel leaders and leaving weak failed states in their wake. Through it’s influence over Western politics, Israel has managed to get Western nations to do it’s dirty work and lead the charge against it’s enemies. Still on the list is Iran, and Jeremy Corbyn simply can’t be relied upon to slavishly do his part the way Tony Blair did with Iraq.
The Iraq war and the lies about WMD’s was mostly the work of a clique in Washington known as the Neocons. In his article America’s Jews Are Driving Americas Wars Philip Giraldi writes:
“….neocons as a group were founded by Jews and are largely Jewish, hence their universal attachment to the state of Israel. They first rose into prominence when they obtained a number of national security positions during the Reagan Administration and their ascendancy was completed when they staffed senior positions in the Pentagon and White House under George W. Bush. Recall for a moment Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Scooter Libby. Yes, all Jewish and all conduits for the false information that led to a war that has spread and effectively destroyed much of the Middle East. Except for Israel, of course. Philip Zelikow, also Jewish, in a moment of candor, admitted that the Iraq War, in his opinion, was fought for Israel.”
In 2007 veteran investigative journalist Seymour Hersh would write an article titled The Redirection. In it he explains that the neocon led Bush administration was involved in operations aimed at Iran and Syria which involved the bolstering of Jihadist militant groups. Hersh states:
“To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has cooperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.”
Tony Cartalucci of Land Destroyer writes in his article Extremists Ravaging Syria Created by US in 2007:
“A 2007 New Yorker article written by renowned journalist Seymour Hersh revealed a plan under the Bush Administration to organize, arm, train, and deploy a regional army of terrorists, many with ties directly to Al Qaeda, in a bid to destabilize and overthrow both Syria and Iran. The plan consisted of US and Israeli backing, covertly funneled through Saudi proxies to conceal Washington and Tel Aviv’s role, in building the sectarian extremist front.”
“Saudi Arabia’s Prince Bandar is noted by Hersh as instrumental in coordinating efforts between the Saudis, Israel, and the United States, while the political party built up around pro-Saudi Lebanese tycoon Rafic Hariri set the groundwork in Lebanon for the creation of staging points for the violent terrorist front.”
“With sectarian-extremists committing increasingly frequent and violent atrocities across Syria, the US and the Western media in general, have attempted to portray it as a natural progression of Syria’s internal conflict – when in reality, based on Hersh’s report and confirmed again more recently as the source of the rebels’ funding and support is revealed, it is clearly the result of this long-planned act of foreign aggression against Syria, perpetrated by the US, Israel, Saudi Arabia, and their terrorist proxies in the Muslim Brotherhood.”
In 2013 Former French foreign minister Roland Dumas stated on French television that he was told personally by British officials that they were planning an armed rebel (jihadi) uprising in Syria. This meeting occurred two years prior to the violence erupting in that country. Dumas would go on to explain that the driving force behind this agenda was Israel. Dumas stated:
“I’m going to tell you something. I was in England two years before the violence in Syria on other business. I met with top British officials, who confessed to me that they were preparing something in Syria. This was in Britain not in America. Britain was organizing an invasion of rebels into Syria. They even asked me, although I was no longer minister for foreign affairs, if I would like to participate. Naturally, I refused, I said I’m French, that doesn’t interest me”
“This operation goes way back. It was prepared, preconceived and planned… in the region it is important to know that this Syrian regime has a very anti-Israeli stance. Consequently, everything that moves in the region- and I have this from the former Israeli prime minister who told me ‘we’ll try to get on with our neighbours but those who don’t agree with us will be destroyed.”
So to sum up: the current attack on members of the Labour party for supposed “anti-semitism” fulfils many goals for the Zionists and Globalists. It is both an attack on free speech and an attack on Jeremy Corbyn. It is about smearing anyone critical of Israel and Zionism, those involved in BDS, and anyone who warns of the global elite and the New World Order. It’s also about intimidating Labour MPs into joining the Labour Friends of Israel group and an attempt by Corbyn’s political opponents and their Zionist controllers to take him down. To have a leader of the Labour party who has pro-Palestinian tendencies and who can’t be relied upon to blindly serve Israeli/Zionist interests is seen as unacceptable (especially with the Tories so weak and unpopular and Labour in with a chance next time there’s an election). From the hardcore Zionist point of view Corbyn needs to either be gotten rid of or brought to heel. Ideally they would like a new Tony Blair… someone who has no issues with being a Zionist attack dog and will happily stare into the camera and lie to the nation about why he’s sending their sons and daughters off to war.
Personally I have no love whatsoever for Corbyn or his followers but if I smell a rat with this whole “anti-Semitism” psychodrama, which I do, then I’m going to say so.
