On April 2, 2016, Rupert Murdoch’s Sunday Telegraph reported that British government had ceased funding of a charity, War on Want that was accused by the Jewish Lobby of sponsoring events that promote violence against Jews.
The newspaper claimed that the Department for International Development ceased funding the charity, said to amount to £260,000 (The Jerusalem Post raised the figure to £500,000) in the past year, apart from a small project in Northern Ireland.
On April 3, War on Want, UK’s most respected charity dismissed the news as a Jewish fabrication.
“The story in today’s Telegraph is a complete fabrication. War on Want has not sought any UK government support for its operations for a number of years now, so it is absurd to suggest that we have had our funding ‘pulled’. The insinuation that we have been criticized by the government for standing up for the rights of the Palestinian people is equally bogus. We will be contacting the Telegraph to help it set the record straight,” said John Hilary, Executive Director at War on Want in a statement.
The anti-poverty charity is supported by Canadian-born political activist, author and Jewish feminist Naomi Klein.
Former British MP George Galloway, the current London’s Mayoral candidate was general secretary of the charity from 1983-87.
Professor Gerald Steinberg (Bar Ilan University, Israel), president of Israeli propaganda website Al-Monitor complained to pro-Israel government of David Cameron about the charity’s anti-Israel activities.
The War on Want charity had been target of both Israel and its powerful Jewish Lobby in Britain for decades for providing financial aid to poor Palestinian families living in refugee camps, and its criticism of Israeli wars on its Arab neighbors. Its recent crime was sponsoring Israel Apartheid Week 2016 at London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies in February.
The speakers at the event were accused of making several ‘political wrong statements’, such as:
Israelis were stealing organs from dead Palestinian, said Sahar Francis, a Christian Palestinian lawyer and member of Addameer organization. In fact, the Israelis have been found doing this heinous business in Ukraine, Madagascar, Chad, Kosova, Romania, and Organ Trafficking in many other countries.
British government anti-extremism Prevent strategy was “fuelled by all manner of Zionist lobbies, said Malia Bouattia of UK’s National Union of Students. UK’s veteran pro-Israel journalist Peter Oborne in an article on November 13, 2009 admitted that Jewish Lobby groups not only control UK’s foreign policy but also influence government policies toward country’s non-Jewish minorities especially Muslims.
Rafeef Ziadah, the event chairperson had the nerve to describe “Israel 1948” as “Palestine 1948”. How rude!
If that was not enough – American professor Steven Salaita, who got fired from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for insulting Netanyahu last year, also spoke at the event.
Britain’s most anti-Muslim White supremacist groups like English Defense League is an Israeli front. So is true for the so-called pro-Muslim watchdog Tell Mama – co-chaired by Richard Benson, former CEO of UK’s powerful Jewish lobby CTS.
On March 30, 2016, a Zionist creep Chuck Ross cried wolf at Jewish The Daily Caller over American $270,000 donation to UK-based Islamic Relief Worldwide, accused of funding Israel’s war victims in Palestine and Lebanon.
