In response to Arrest Netanyahu for War Crimes campaign, UK’s prime minister David Cameron, announced on August 27 that the veteran director of Conservative Friends of Israel, Stuart Polak, is given the honor to sit in British House of Lords in order to look after Israel’s interests in United Kingdom.
Polak has another role which most Brits don’t know. He is a key figure in The Westminister Connection (TWC), an ‘arms for sale’ advocacy group. Polak lobby for Haifa-based electronic giant Elbit Systems, which has branches in UK, US, Germany, France and several other European countries.
Liverpool-born Polak took an all expense-paid trip to Israel at age 15. He is a former official of British Jewish Lobby, the Board of Jewish Deputies.
The anti-Netanyahu campaign has given another reason to UK’s Jewish Lobby to stop Jeremy Corbyn leading opposition Labour Party, which has been a Zionist territory since WWII. Corbyn said if elected, he would urged the government to arrest Netanyahu on war crimes against 1.7 million Gaza people last year.
Daily Kos editorial (January 22, 2015) described Netanyahu really good. “The warmongering anti-Arab, racist and bigoted Likud Party of Israel – led by a war criminal Benjamin Netanyahu, don’t represents many in Israel who want peace with Palestinian people. Now Benjamin Netanyahu the darling of Likud Party wants to plunge America into an insensible, senseless and uncalled for war with Iran. If Benjamin Netanyahu wants to fight a war with Iran – he should use his own citizens of Israel to fight and die. How does a war with Iran based on falsehood, fabrications and lies benefit any Hispanic/Latino-American, Irish-American, Asian-American, Polish-American, African-American, Native-American, English-American, etc.”
Netanyahu, on the other hand, has asserted that accusing him or Israel of committing war crimes, is old-fashioned Jew-hating.
UK’s prime minister, David Cameron, who boast his Jewish heritage, says that Netanyahu, being head of a foreign country, has immunity under British Constitution from all prosecutions. Ironically, some Africans believe that David Cameron should be arrested during his visit to West Africa and thrown in a Nairobi jail for his ancestors’ war crimes against Mau Mau.
