On Friday, UK’s opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn in letter to country’s prime minister Theresa May says plots by Israeli official to ‘take down’ senior ministers are a ‘national security issue’. He demanded a parliamentary investigation into the scandal over undue influence exerted by the Israeli embassy over Westminster.
Corbyn wrote: “Many members of Parliament and the public will be concerned at this evidence of attempts to undermine the integrity of our democracy. I’m sure you’ll agree that such improper interference in this country’s democratic process is unacceptable, whatever country is involved.”
Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and former Mayor of London (with Turkish Jewish family roots) – who was described as an idiot in the Al-Jazeera footage filmed undercover – has said he sees the matter as closed.
But describing the matter as a national security issue, Corbyn writes: “I would therefore ask that you treat the matter as such and launch an inquiry into the extent of this improper influence.”
MP Joan Ryan, president of the Labour Friends of Israel blamed Al-Jazeera of antisemitism. She was not wrong. Last month, Theresa May redefined the so-called antisemitism – which included the criticism of the Zionist entity.
Israel-born British author, Gilad Atzmon, claimed in 2007 that plotting against other people’s regime is deeply embeded in Judiac teaching and Jewish culture.
Jeremy Corbyn and his Labour Party, and the Scottish National Party were the main targets of Israeli embassy espionage network.
Secret tapes expose how Israeli embassy employees ran a vicious campaign based on personal insults to discredit Jeremy Corbyn. Embassy’s senior PR official Shai Masot called Jeremy Corbyn “crazy and antisemite“.
“Successive British governments have deemed it to be in British interests to tacitly support the Israeli governments, and to buy into the Israeli narrative that any level of hostility to Israel is antisemitic. To understand the significance of the Masot affair, we must understand the wider context. For those of us who have had an analytical interest in the development of pro-Israel lobbying – by Israeli officials, Jewish communal organizations and non-Jewish friends of Israel groups of various kinds – these latest developments come as no surprise,” says Antony Lerman, founding president of the Institute for Jewish Policy Research (JPR).
Last week, British newspaper Mail on Sunday claimed that people in the Conservative and Labour Parties have been working with the Israeli embassy which has used them to demonize and trash MPs who criticize Israel; an army of Israel’s useful idiots in Parliament.
Jamie Stern-Wiener, a UK-Israeli investigative journalist claimed last year, saying: Jeremy Corbyn hasn’t got an antiemitism problem. His opponents do.
