Last month, Theresa May slammed US secretary of state John Kerry over a speech in which he criticized the Zionist regime.
In October 2016, Theresa May blasted opposition Labour Party calling it a Party of Antisemites. May’s Labour problem is not with the party but with its leader Jeremy Corbyn, who claims that Israel will never live in peace unless it negotiate with democratically-elected of Hamas in good faith.
Since the rise of Corbyn, the Israeli embassy in London has joined with country’s powerful Jewish lobbying groups to target British lawmakers who ever dared to criticize in their political career. In June 2016, the Labour Friends of Palestine MP Helen Joanne ‘Jo’ Cox, 42, was stabbed and shot to death in broad daylight outside the public library in Birstall, Leeds, to the shouts of Britain First!.
On January 7, 2017, Qatar-based Al-Jazeera released its six-month undercover investigation revealing a vicious Israeli campaign against pro-Palestinian activists in the United Kingdom. Each episode of the four-part series The Lobby (watch below) will be broadcast daily on Al-Jazeera from January 11.
Israel’s London embassy’s senior political officer Major (r) Shai Masot (Israel Navy), is reported to be the head of the UK’s Political Watch network. He held executive positions in Israel’s Ministry for Strategic Affairs, before moving to the Israeli embassy in London. There he held many recorded meetings with British politicians, including giving briefings in parliament and at party conferences, and acted in a way that in general would accord with a rank around First Secretary to Counsellor.
In order to counter Friends of Palestine, in 2016 a group calling itself SNP Friends of Peace in the Middle East was established by a former Israeli soldier, Sammy Stein. A leading member of the Scottish Jewish community called it, a front group for the interests of the Israeli government.
On January 9, Israeli newspaper Ha’aretz reported that Israeli officials insist matter is closed after public and private apologies to Deputy Foreign Officer Minister Sir Alan Duncan and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, and with Shai Mascot fired and sent home.
Interestingly, Boris Johnson has Turkish Jewish family roots. Sir Alan Duncan, though supports Israel, but is against Jewish Lobby in the country. He had claimed in the past that United State is controlled by Israel lobbing groups.
“We want Jewish people becoming involved in politics. We need British Jews for the Conservative, Labour, or other UK parties – but not the Israeli lobby for any party,” Sir Alan Duncan said.
