The Complete Manual for the British Jewish Voter

With Britain’s three-way race for prime minister entering the final lap, many Brits are still wondering who to vote for. As if it makes any difference. However, if you are interested in my take on the subject, I would suggest you opt for Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats. If you want to know why, it is pretty simple — just because Jews don’t like Clegg at all. This is at least the impression I gathered after reading the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA).

The JTA grasps that no single party is expected to capture a majority of the British parliament in the May 6 ballot. They realise, like the rest of us, that the office of Prime Minister may go to whichever party leader is able to secure a coalition deal or win the support of another party. This is indeed horrible news for our relentless Zionist fundraisers. Usually they buy just one party. In fact, in this particular election, they already gambled on the Conservatives. As it happens, now they have to buy all three leading parties.

A few days ago the JTA published a manual for the British Jewish voter. As one might expect, the JTA and the Board of Deputies of British Jews (BOD), a rabid Zionist institute that claims to represent British Jewry, are convinced that British Jews are a top British political priority. “One thing is certain,” says Rosalind Preston of the BOD, “whoever is elected will have to deal with some very real and pressing issues, not only on the national and international level, but as they affect British Jews on the home front.” British Jews, she said, are concerned with “boycotts of Israeli goods, the spike of anti-Israeli resolutions and speakers on university campuses.”

I myself would be far more optimistic if I knew that British Jewry were actually concerned with war crimes committed in their names by the Jewish state. This leaves us with a very clear picture, as much as a growing number of Brits try to resurrect Britain’s stand on humanism, the BOD and the JTA want this kingdom to continue to be subservient to the interest of one tribe only.

Nick Clegg, the Lib Dems leader is not exactly the favorite candidate as far as the BOD and the JTA are concerned. During the IDF’s 2009 genocidal attack on Gaza, Clegg penned an op-ed in the Guardian newspaper calling on the Labour Government to “condemn unambiguously Israel’s tactics” and demanded an “immediate arms boycott of Israel by Britain and the European Union.” As much as it is transparent that Clegg’s polite humanist stand is something the JTA disapproves of, Brits should start to identify just who promotes murderous regimes and ideologies in the midst of their politics and media.

Last December, Clegg was also the lead signatory of a letter addressing the fact that Israel has 1.5 million Palestinian prisoners. In addition, he wrote that the legacy of Israel’s operation in Gaza is a “living nightmare” for Gaza’s residents. Again, as much as the JTA is disgruntled about Clegg’s public stance, the Brits should be very proud to find such a voice of reason amid their overwhelmingly ‘Blue & White’ funded politics.

We also have the story of the adorable Lib Dems’ Jenny Tonge who the Zionists despise. Tonge is a former member of Parliament who became a member of the House of Lords in 2005. In 2004, Tonge said she would become a suicide bomber if she had to suffer the indignities of the Palestinians. In 2006, she suggested that the pro-Israel lobby had “financial grips” on Britain and on her party. Last March, she met with Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal in Syria. Clearly the JTA doesn’t approve of Tonge’s sincere refreshing call for justice. Last February, Tonge requested an inquiry into the claim that the Israel Defense Forces’ earthquake relief teams in Haiti had harvested the organs of quake victims. Obviously, this claim was reasonable, considering the Israeli share in the vast global market of organ trafficking.

Interestingly enough, Tonge’s remark prompted Clegg to fire her as the party’s spokeswoman for health in the House of Lords. In fact, this act is something the Brits should take note of before giving their vote to the Lib Dems and Nick Clegg. Indeed, like the Conservatives and New Labour, the Lib Dems also have their ‘friends of Israel.’ At the end of the day, it appears that all major British parties find it impossible to refuse the Zionist pound or shall I say the Shekel. To eliminate any doubt in the matter, the Lib Dems spokesman reassured the Jewish Chronicle, ‘It was because they are friends of Israel that they will be candid and critical.’

As one might expect, Jews want to punish Labour for its failure to comply with Jewish pressure. As the JTA reports, “Jews are upset with Labour’s failure to amend the universal jurisdiction law that permits private citizens to apply for the arrest of Israeli politicians for alleged war crimes while they are on British soil.” This shouldn’t take us by surprise. You cannot expect a ‘tribal’ operation to support ‘universal’ jurisdiction. Cameron (Conservatives) has said that he would rescind the law. Clearly with 50% of his shadow cabinet being members of the Conservative Friends of Israel, I expect the protocols of his cabinet to also be transcribed into Hebrew or at least Yiddish.

Brits may be shocked to find out that in the JTA’s review of the British election there is not a single word about British national interests. The article leaves the impression that Jews who live in Britain for generations have zero interest in their neighbours. All they are concerned with is the level of subservience of British politicians to what they regard as Jewish interests (Israel and Zionism).

But do not get the wrong impression. The JTA also has some positive news for its readers. According to the rabid Zionist media outlet, some Jews also participate in the democratic game as equals amongst equals. “In the midst of this year’s extraordinarily tight race, candidates for Prime Minister and hopefuls in Jewish districts appear to be stepping up their pandering to Jewish voters.” Geoffrey Alderman, a historian of British Jewry, sees this as a positive development. “Appealing for a Jewish vote is a sign of a vibrant democratic state,” he said.

I hope British politicians might realise before it’s too late, that there are some other migrant communities in this country that deserve at least as much attention and care.

    It’s pretty telling of the power of World Jewry when you can be 0.5% of the population and still exert such an influence on British Foreign Policy…

    Well written Gilad. However, we in the US and Canada are not far behind Britain when it comes to Jewish Lobby power.

    “I am sorry, gentlemen, but I have to answer to hundreds of thousands who are anxious to see the success of Zionism; I do not have hundreds of thousands of Arabs among my constituents,” – Harry Truman’s response to US diplomates, who advised him not to recognize State of Israel, November 10, 1945.

    “We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the world – no longer a government of free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and vote of majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small group of dominant people,” – President Woodrow Wilson.

    “Should the Iraqis ever cross-over Israeli border for aggression – I would personally get in a ditch, grab a rifle, and fight and die,” former US president Bill Clinton, speaking at Toronto Jewish Fund Raiser, July 30, 2002. Interestingly, young Clinton refused to fight for his own country during Vietnam War!

    “The Modern Age is the Jewish Age, and the twentieth century, in particlar, is the Jewish Century,” – Professor Uri Slezkine (University of California, Berkeley – a Russian Jew – in book ‘The Jewish Century’.

    “Obama asks Shimon Peres: What can I do for Israel,” – Israel daily Ha’aretz, November 17, 2008.

    “I want to tell you something very clear, don’t worry about American pressure on Israel, we, the Jewish people control America, and the Americans know it,” – Zionist prime minister Ariel Sharon to Shimon Peres (the current president of USrael), October 3, 2001 – reported by Kol Yisrael Radio.

    “Our American friends offer us money, arms and advice; we take the money, we take the arms, and we decline the advice,” – General Moshe Dayan.

    “Looking at Zionism without taboos means seeing the hard reality of the domination and oppression it has created. Out of the original sins of the world against the Jews grew the original sins of Zionism against the Palestinians,” – Professor Benjamin Beit-Hallahmi (Haifa University) in his book ‘Driginal Sins’. He earlier wrote the book The Israeli Connection.

    “We killed them out of a certain naive hubris. Believing with absolute certitude that now, with the White House, the Senate, and much of American media in our hands., the lives of others do not count as much as our own,” – Ari Shavat, reported in The New York Times, May 27, 1999.

    “America is as much Jewish as Vatican is Catholic,” – Israel Shamir, a Russian-Israeli Jew citizen (converted to Christianity a few years ago) and columnist.

    “With the election of Nicolas Sarkozt as French President – Zionists’ domination of Europe has been completed,” – Le Figaro, French daily.

    Zionism is based on everything which is evil in Judaism – as Mohamed Khodr proves in his article – Jewish Power; The \”0.002%\” World Problem.

    Jewish control of western mass-media is a taboo topic – and when challenged, the person is labeled as ‘anti-Semitism’ or ‘Jew hatred’. A Christian religious scholar, Rev. Ted Pike wrote a very informative article on this subject.

    When Pope Benedict XVI spew filth against Islam, a religion which considers Pope’s Lord Christ as one of the greated prophets of Allah and his mother, Holy Mary, as one of the four most righteous women among Allah’s creation – but was affraid to criticize Jews for the Talmudic insults Christ, Holy Mary and the rest of Christians – An American Catholic women activist and writer, Joanna Francis, exposed the Pope Benedict XVI for his loyalty to Zionists than Catholics.

    This piece is partly right and partly wrong.

    The right bit is the second sentence: “As if it makes any difference.”

    The wrong bit is in the third sentance: “opt for Nick Clegg and the Liberal Democrats.”

    Our system of government is corrupt. Fact. Because none of the candidates standing for election will lift a finger to change that situation means that the only sensible thing to do is NOT VOTE FOR ANY OF THEM!

    The most powerful weapon the electorate have at this time is their silence: to boycott the ballot altogether – to show them the game is up – that we will no longer dignify this farce of so-called-democracy with our complicity.
