The current witch-hunt for anti-Semites in the United Kingdom demonstrates just how corrupt the British political establishment has become under the influence of foreign interests and exposes the tactics of infiltration, extortion, and bribery used by the Zionist lobby, a political analyst has said.
Barry Grossman, who is based on the Indonesian island of Bali, made the remarks in an interview with Press TV on Monday, May 2, 2016, while commenting on Britain’s Labour Party Leader Jeremy Corbyn’s refusal to give in to calls from Israeli officials and British Jewish figures to denounce Islamic resistance movements Hamas and Hezbollah.
Corbyn has come under pressure from a number of Labour lawmakers, Israeli Ambassador to London Mark Regev and Jewish leaders in the UK to distance himself from Labour politicians’ recent remarks condemning Israeli crimes against Palestinians, as well as groups fighting against the Tel Aviv regime’s occupation of the Palestinian lands.
Pro-Israeli figures have accused the Labour Party leader of being soft on “anti-Semitism” in the party, which was forced to launch an inquiry into how to tackle the issue. One Labour Party donor, Michael Foster, said that Jews have not given any money to the party since Corbyn took office because those around him "vilify" Jews and "shout down" people who attempt to defend Israel.
“The ongoing machinations in the United Kingdom are fascinating, as anything but progressive Labour Party insiders relegated to the margins by Jeremy Corbyn’s rise to power, actually work with the Conservative Party and members of Israel’s Knesset to make unprecedented demands of the British Labour leader”, Grossman said. “These machinations and the nothing less than outrageous interference in Britain’s political process not just by Israeli bagmen, but by Netanyahu himself and a virtual "who’s who" of Israeli political elite, exposes the stand-over tactics long used by Zionists to strong-arm politicians around the world into uncritically embracing and promoting their agenda, no matter how obscene, unlawful and unjust it may be”, he added. “If that is not already enough, the really quite absurd complaints made by the Labour Party’s shadow chancellor to the effect that "no-one of Jewish faith has given money to the central party since Mr. Corbyn took office because those around him vilify Jews and shout down people who attempt to defend Israel", also exposes the effectiveness of Israel’s preferred tactic of bribing foreign politicians in order influence their government’s foreign policy”, he stated. “Watching this embarrassingly corrupt witch-hunt that, without coincidence, has unfolded just as the British prepare to go to the polls, demonstrates just how corrupt the sell-outs comprising the British old guard in politics on both sides of the contrived ideological divide have become”, Grossman said. “On the Labour side, those who are openly opposed to their own leader and the party’s majority quite clearly prefer the money of foreign lobbyists, to embracing their own party leadership, even if that means occupying the opposition benches for the foreseeable future”, he stated. “As for the laughable accusations of anti-Semitism being flung about, those orchestrating this with-hunt may well be salivating over the traction they are getting in Britain’s corrupt, pro-Zionist media ; but the British people –self-obsessed and apathetic about foreign affairs as they may often be- are certainly not stupid”, he noted. “It does not take any great degree of genius to understand that criticizing Israel’s excesses and war crimes or referring to the historical relationship which the Political Zionist leadership had with the Nazi Party is in no way anti-Semitic, no matter that the Zionist lobby has gone so far as to compel the publisher of Webster’s International Dictionary of the English Language to redefine anti-Semitism as including any support for the enemies of Israel or criticism of Israel itself. In any case, Webster’s is an American publication which promotes a regional variation of English which is hardly English at all”, the analyst pointed out. “The tightly controlled British media’s enthusiasm to echo the preposterous allegations being bandied about within the Labour Party and against members like Ken Livingstone, Naz Shah, George Galloway and Jeremy Corbyn who, in reality, have little in common, only exposes the extent to which the tightly controlled British media is also fully under the sway of foreigners and executives who have sold out to the Zionist lobby in the same way the bulk of Britain’s once embarrassingly proud political establishment now dances to the tune of the all powerful Zionist lobby”, he said. “Bearing in mind the violent Zionist occupation of Palestine and the related cultural genocide which have persisted now for more than 6 decades, claims expressed by Israeli politicians in the context of this witch-hunt that Hezbollah and Hamas are also anti-Semitic come across as being all the more absurd. Bearing in mind how the Zionist lobby has redefined the anti-Semitism to include any and all opposition to Zionist policy, it would be ludicrous for anyone to expect organizations representing Palestinian interests to be anything but opposed to their occupiers. If they want to call that anti-Semitism, then so be it”, Grossman said. “All we can do is take our hats off and salute the courage of Mr. Corbyn to reject calls to demonize Hezbollah, Hamas and Palestinians even if the practical realities of the now fully corrupted British political process sometimes requires him to make compromises in order to retain power and advance his progressive agenda”, he said. “It is indeed refreshing to at last see a senior Atlantic World politician refuse to be intimidated and stick to his well-developed and informed sense that Hezbollah, Hamas, and the Palestinian people –unlike their occupiers– are no enemy of the United Kingdom, despite the unforgivable crimes committed by the British in selling out Palestinians to the Zionist terrorists starting immediately after WW1 right through until their unilateral declaration of independence made in direct violation of the international community’s efforts in 1948 to find a solution for Palestine that preserved the rights of both Palestinians and those European Jews who, in the aftermath of WW2, streamed illegally into Palestine often still wearing concentration camp uniforms on their arrival years after the Nazis were defeated and the camps liberated”, the commentator emphasized. “Meanwhile, British citizens from all walks of life from the progressives, who supporter Jeremy Corbyn in vast numbers, to the absurd hard right comprising Britain First’s constituency would do well to ask themselves just when their nation’s political establishment became so pathetically obsequious in their pandering to foreign interests”, Grossman concluded.
