‘Britain the Center of Anti-Israel Hate’
So runs a headline from Israeli National News this morning. Whilst I do not agree with the wording of the headline which should read “Britain the centre of Anti Occupation hate, we should be very proud that we are described as follows:-
“In recent years Britain has become the center of anti-Israel activity in Europe, even worldwide,” said subcommittee head MK Einat Wilfe (Independence), who proposed the meeting.
We at deLiberation can be very pleased to be part of a growing movement which is opening up the discourse on the zionification of the West – whilst the leftist/AZZ gatekeepers in the Solidarity movement are still talking about the occupation as if it is only related to Palestine. The following quote from the newspaper tells us that zionists in the U.K. are becoming increasingly aware that they have been outed as supporters of occupation and ethnic cleansing. However, I do not believe that either Jews or Israelis have been subject to abuse or attack here in the U.K. even though they regularly attend protests and pro Palestine meetings.
British Jewish leaders will take part in the conference, which will focus on problems facing the Jewish and pro-Israel communities in Britain due to anti-Israel sentiment.
It is really difficult to see how our government can continue it’s complicity in the occupation, siege and ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people (despite the efforts of the many pro Israel lobby groups), in the face of growing international awareness of this gross injustice. How much longer will the west be prepared to continue apologising for the holocaust and held to ransom for fear of being branded as anti semites? The days of the zionist occupation of Palestine the U.K. and the West may well be numbered.
