On Monday, British prime minister David Cameron in a speech at a Jewish charity gala urged country’s 300,000 Jewish community to vote ‘Remain’ on Thursday in Brexit (a nifty portmanteau combining the words: Britain and Exit) referendum because UK can protect Israel’s vital interests by staying inside European Union.
“When Europe is discussing its attitude to Israel, do you want Britain – Israel’s greatest friend – in there opposing boycotts, opposing the campaign for divestment and sanctions, or do you want us outside the room, powerless to affect the discussion that takes place?” Cameron said.
According to Jewish Chronicle though the US and Israeli governments are not saying in public – they both wants UK to stay in the European Union to counter anti-Israel views among some of the EU member states.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan has urged Londoners to vote for UK staying in the EU, because it’s “important for our way of life”.
Last week, the anti-Muslim GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump said that Britain would be ‘better off’ without European Union.
Jewish-controlled media has thrown its full support to make ‘UK in EU’ a religious duty for every patriotic British citizen even though a recent poll shows that 45% of Brits want to leave the EU as compared to 44% to stay within the EU.
EU has always been on Israel’s side – both politically and economically. Israel enjoys a special trading status with the EU and co-operates on research and development worth hundreds of millions of euros annually. No wonder some Europeans have called the European Union as a Jewish Club.
EU, though provides some funds to pro-Israel Mahmoud Abbas’ rule over the West Bank and some anti-Israel NGOs working inside Occupied Palestine – it has long classified both Hamas and Hizbullah as terrorist organizations.
Israel-based Regavim (רגבים) which represents illegal Jewish settlers in the West bank has posted a video at You-Tube (watch below) using footage from a Hamas media briefing, dubbing it with an anti-Brexit address.
