Gilad Atzmon comments on an editorial in Britain’s top Zionist newspaper in which the paper’s editor, Stephen Pollard, and its chief political editor, Martin Bright, appeared to be threatening British Prime Minister Gordon Brown with electoral defeat unless he restricts the application of universal jurisdiction to ensure that suspected Israeli war criminals can travel to the UK without risk of prosecution.
”In plain language the Jewish Chronicle is suggesting that Gordon Brown, as far as the Jews are concerned, is basically finished. I wonder how long it will take for the British people to wake up and say enough is enough? How long will it take before they say NO to Israeli and Zionist infiltration of their politics, laws and values?”
Britain’s Jewish Chronicle is apparently stupid enough to unveil the ferocity of Zionist lobbying within the British government and its corridors of power. The Jewish newspaper is happy to outline the relentless measures that are being taken by Jewish lobbyists in order to Zionize the British legal system and the values underlying it.
One can assume the supporters of Israel in Britain are anything but happy with Britain’s magistrates being able to implement universal jurisdiction laws – laws that allow local magistrates to issue arrest warrants for high profile foreign visitors accused of war crimes. The rabid Zionist Jewish Chronicle is obviously outraged because universal jurisdiction puts most of the Israeli political and military echelon at severe risk. Last month former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livini cancelled her visit to Britain over fears that arrest warrants would be issued in connection with accusations of war crimes under laws of universal jurisdiction.
Surely, universal jurisdiction is not a bad thing. It is actually an ethically-based idea that is there to prevent world leaders from abusing their powers and committing crimes against humanity. It is also there to prosecute war criminals and to stop them from celebrating their crimes. Yet, it is not very surprising that the only political lobby in Britain that acts against such a set of universal laws is the Zionist lobby.
While in the past Zionist activists tried to hide their conspiratorial actions, Jewish Chronicle political editor Martin Bright and chief editor Stephen Pollard are providing us with a glimpse into the relentless Jewish political activity here. “Will the government ever act?” they ask in their latest editorial, as if the British government has to act in order to satisfy the Zionist will.
Interestingly enough, the Jewish Chronicle editors do not offer a single ideological, ethical or legal argument to suggest that universal jurisdiction is wrong, except that it is not good for the Jews or Israel.
The Jewish Chronicle is rather outraged with Justice Secretary Jack Straw who apparently fails to bow to Israeli pressure. Considering that Jack Straw is of Jewish descent, the Jewish Chronicle must believe that it is entitled to use some measures to put him in the line of fire. Despite the fact that Straw is known in Britain for his notorious call for Muslim women to remove their veils and also as a backer of the illegal invasion of Iraq. The Jewish Chronicle blames him for being too friendly with Muslims. “Mr Straw is known to be highly sensitive to the views of his Muslim constituents in Blackburn and is close to the Muslim Council of Britain, which opposes a change to the law.”
The Jewish Chronicle should have also accepted the fact that, bearing in mind Straw’s Jewish origin, it is just natural for him to be reluctant to initiate a change in British law solely to serve Israeli interests and in total opposition to every universal and ethical value.
According to the Jewish Chronicle, the Jews of Britain should not be too worried. The shadow Middle East minister, David Lidington, is already in their pockets. ”This has to be sorted and quickly”, says the shadow man. “It is very clear to me that this issue is doing serious damage to relations with Israel.”
The Jewish Chronicle also assures its Zionist readers that they have a man within the government who is working hard to serve their interests willingly and even enthusiastically. David Miliband, the British foreign secretary who is also listed as an “Israeli propaganda [Hasbara] author” on an official Israeli propaganda website already announced his intention to change the law late last year. According to the Jewish Chronicle, he is “pushing hard within Whitehall for a solution”. Earlier this month, says the Jewish Chronicle, “the Foreign Office briefed that an announcement of the law change was imminent”. I wouldn’t except less from a listed “Hasbara author”.
But the Jewish Chronicle is taking it even further. In its editorial, it says it is “Crystal clear who is to blame,” referring to Justice Secretary Straw and Prime Minister Gordon Brown
“The time for excuses is over,” says the paper. “For weeks the government has been giving every possible off-the-record promise that it would change the law on universal jurisdiction. No longer would unsuitable magistrates be able to issue warrants for the arrest of some of our closest allies.” One may wonder why exactly “on the record” genocidal murderers such as Livni, Ehud Barak or Ehud Olmert should be considered as “Britain closest allies”. In fact, these people are primary enemies of humanity and as such they are also enemies of Britain and any other nation.
Seemingly, the Jewish Chronicle, doesn’t just speak on behalf of its editors. For some reason it prefers to speak in the name of the “Jewish community”. “Mr Straw must take the Jewish community for mugs if he thinks his behaviour is not transparent.” The only possible interpretation of this statement is that British Jewry wants Britain to give up on universal Jurisdiction just to appease its Zionists.
In case Prime Minister Brown is slightly confused and doesn’t know how to react, the Jewish Chronicle tells him how he should run Britain just to keep the Jewish community happy. “As for the prime minister: all he has ever needed to do is make clear that he backs Mr Miliband, and the issue would have been over”. Considering Miliband is a listed “Israeli propaganda author”, the message here is clear: Britain had better start to work for Israel and even change its laws accordingly so it can easily comply with Israel’s unethical conduct.
Britain is heading towards election, and the Jewish Chronicle is advising Prime Minister Brown that he is about to pay the ultimate political price for his unwillingness to succumb to the Zionist will. “That he [Brown] has done precisely nothing since promising action speaks volumes about his own bona fides. If – and now it looks like when – the deadline for action passes and nothing is done, it will be crystal clear who is to blame.”
In plain language the Jewish Chronicle is suggesting that Gordon Brown, as far as the Jews are concerned, is basically finished. I wonder how long it will take for the British people to wake up and say enough is enough? How long will it take before they say NO to Israeli and Zionist infiltration of their politics, laws and values?
