Israeli officials and politicians sharply criticized the intention of the UK government to expel an ‘unnamed’ Israeli ‘diplomat’ in response to its passports being used in the Dubai assassination of Hamas Freedom Fighter Mahmoud al-Mabhouh.
MK Aryeh Eldad (Israel National Union) doesn’t show much respect to the Brits whom he compares to dogs: "I think [the] British are behaving hypocritically and I don’t want to offend dogs on this issue, since some dogs are utterly loyal," Eldad told Sky News.
MK Michael Ben-Ari took it one step further. "The British may be dogs, but they are not loyal to us, but rather to an anti-Semitic system..”
Both Israeli Parliament members Eldad and Ben-Ari seem to agree that Britons are dogs, yet they are somehow annoyed by their dogs’ disloyalty to the Jewish state. One may wonder why do the Israelis expect their ‘British dogs’ to be loyal. The answer is simple. Because British politicians have been very ‘loyal’ and for more than a while.
For years, the Labour government was maintained financially by Zionist fundraisers led by Lord Levy. In return the Labour Government launched an illegal Israeli war (Iraq). It supported Israeli barbarism all the way through, includingTony Blair’s shameful support of Israeli crimes in Lebanon (2006). Tony Blair is "A true friend of the State of Israel," affirmed the then Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert.
But it may also be possible that Ben-Ari and Eldad do not refer to the Britons in general. They may not even refer to the Labour party. They may just refer to a very specific person, who, for some reason, failed to comply with the strict demand for obedience.
As my readers know, for a while I’ve insisted that some serious measures must be taken to verify and scrutinise David Miliband’s ties with Israel. Foreign Secretary Miliband is listed on an official Israeli Propaganda site as an Israeli Hasbara author. The same Miliband was until very recently investing an enormous effort intochanging British Universal Jurisdiction just to make it easy for Israeli war criminals to make it to Oxford Street early on Boxing Day. Just a few weeks before the IDF launched its genocidal attempt against the people of Gaza, the same Miliband visited Sderot to ‘show solidarity’ with the Israeli people. Here is what he had to say "It’s very important that countries like mine and others show their solidarity with the people of Sderot.” This idiotic statement made by a senior loyal minister was obviously interpreted by the Israelis as a green light to reduce Gaza into a pile of rubble.
David Miliband who has been very loyal to Israel may start to feel the heat. He had to drop a political trophy. In accordance with Labour spin culture he expelled an ‘unnamed’ Israeli diplomat. Miliband may have managed to fool Ben-Ari and Eldad but he wouldn’t fool me. Being a progressive interventionist, Miliband is still loyal to the darkest ideology around namely Zionism.
Britons better grasp that Israel was using no less than 15 forged British passports. The Israelis were obviously confident that they could get away with it. With a listed Hasbara author running the foreign office and half of the shadow ministers being members of the ‘Conservative Friends of Israel’, the Mossad had a good reason to believe that Britain’s politics is in its pockets.
If Miliband wants to convince us that he is loyal to this kingdom and its citizens, he may as well name the ‘unnamed’ diplomat he just decided to expel. He better also provide us with the list of Sayanim (collaborators) within British Home Office, those who made this forgery possible.
