Jewish groups endorse call for public inquiry

The actions of a foreign embassy in London to ‘take down’ a government minister and plant friendly groups round the country are scandalous. The complacency of the government adds to the scandal. That embassy is Israeli and is being given special privileges. Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn has called for a public inquiry, a demand endorsed by many Jewish groups.

Spotting ‘antisemitism’ gives Israel its dominant role

Antony Lerman, expert on the discourse of antisemitism and on Israeli lobbying says Israel re-made its dominant role in the diaspora by finding antisemitism lurking everywhere which only Israel could define and combat.

Palestinian students in UK demand resignation of V-P

The damage done by Israeli interference in British political life is incalculable. Rightly, Palestinians here protest. Any pro-Israel tactic is going to be an anti-Palestinian move. Al Jazeera has captured recent plots – for instance, to oust the president of the NUS, also in this posting. But what of the past? The damage caused to British Jews is also incalculable. Why do Israeli officials feel it right and necessary for them to do this?

Israeli subversion is issue of national security says Corbyn

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has quite rightly said that the evidence of the Israeli subversion of British political life, especially amongst students, shows a threat to national security and there should be a public inquiry, Hear hear. Write to your MP. This was a blip on the national news agenda. Stop the cover-up.

May turns blind eye to Israeli subversion UK politics

The extraordinary evidence produced by Al Jazeera (posted here last Sunday) of extensive Israeli efforts to change British politics has been met with apparent calm by our PM. Mike Cushman and Free Speech on Israel arraign all those who have colluded with this foreign intervention.
