The malignancy that pervades a blighted Britain


Ken Livingstone

There is something very unsavoury about those elected to civic office in the UK and Europe who use that public platform to spread their contempt for the Jews and then when confronted with charges of anti-Semitism become offended.  Their beef, they explain, as some half-cocked apology, is not with the Jews but with the Zionists and as if to endorse the statement, they proceed to Israel-bashing, that convenient scapegoat that must absorb all blame for the evils of the world. And yes, I am writing of my total abhorrence not only at comments made by the unsavoury lefty left UK Jew-baiters and haters but of the sheer lunacy of the British people to accept this outrageous effrontery. The Labour party, traditionally a friend to Israel, has been hijacked by the hijab.  Harold Wilson would turn in his grave.

Time was when the British working classes took to boycotts and pickets to protect their pay-packets and privileges. Back in the day, the miners went on strike for the miners and hard-line trade unionists cared far less about some tiny, far-flung fledgeling Jewish State than they did about protecting their jobs.  The issue was having enough dough to put bread on the table at the end of a long day down the mines. It was all about jobs and fair play and milk for the schoolkids. Time was when foreign policy was all about protecting the interests of the UK to the benefit of the UK.

IslamicRepublicOfBritainNot anymore. In a bid to be a multicultural beacon, Blighty  (Great Britain) all but invites Islamic seeds to take root and grow and flourish in British soil. As a fast spreading weed, it strangles tender plants in its wake. It’s now a case of the soon-to-become minority of right-minded folk having to put up and shut up if it wants to survive in this last bastion of the empire that free falls into the abyss of political correctness. A bizarre identity with Islamization is the new political tool of lefty left MPs who use it to appease local constituents as they set out their ‘new world order’ telling their minions what they want to hear.

The British Jew, traditionally hard working, patriotic to Queen and country and religiously and spiritually connected to the State of Israel once again finds himself a target for scorn. Anti-Semitism, once exclusively the domain of the politically incorrect, is endorsed by a haphazard collective of intellectually contorted extremists forming a coalition of hatred that feeds off the idiosyncrasies of the other. This unholy collective focusses on the Jewish State, the State of Israel. And by doing so, they gain legitimacy because it is OK to criticise a country. It is a democratic human right that one enjoys when living in the West – freedom of speech. In short, demonising Israel is the more politically correct form of anti-Semitism these days.

Interestingly, many of those who engage in zealous criticism of Israel hail from countries where human rights do not exist, where repression rules and freedom of speech comes with the death penalty.  The likes of George Galloway, Ken Livingstone and yes, even the leader of the Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, flagrantly wield a patently anti-Jewish agenda.   They share the same malignancy and happily stand on the same stage with those who screech ‘death to Israel’ and ‘free Palestine’ alongside white supremacy groups, neo-Nazis sporting Swastikas and the dubious self-hating Jew – she who pours scorn against the very holy land, Israel, towards which she faces when she prays in the synagogue. This slapdash collective spew revulsion on Israel from the capitals of Europe and find friends in high office who condone their actions because they are united under the veil of ‘it is OK to criticise a country.’  

whose-law-members-of-islam4uk-leave-a-london-press-conference-in-januaryWhen opinion is skewed by ignorance, when loyalties are greased by a well-oiled Pallywood propaganda machine and when informed and credible facts fall on deaf ears, as they so often do, it is no wonder that London has become Londonistan as Melanie Phillips most prophetically named it some ten years ago, in her book of the same name wherein she evidenced that radical Islamic demands are being appeased by multiculturalism rather than challenged by common sense. Londonistan, Paristan and all the other Europanistans are just one heartbeat away from the next big terrorist attack and yet, the greatest ally of the free world in this war on terror is lambasted because she is the State of Israel – the Jewish State.

The State of Israel puts the security of its citizens above all and does it in the most humane way possible given the daily, hourly, minute by minute knife-wielding walking threats that pervade its peace. I would think that this is a policy to be envied not held in contempt.

It begs the question, is the rabid anti-Israel stance a symptom of the malignancy that pervades a blighted Britain?

What you see and what you read is what you get, says Tricia. Expat Anglo living in Tel Aviv with her lovely Israeli husband (now there's a novel in the making) and their two naughty black cats. She made Aliya on 9/11 - the date she shares with another life-changing though far more tragic event. In her pre-Aliya days, she was a company director and procurement, sourcing and marketing professional, and catalogue product editor. Long distance mum to grown up (debatable at times) Ric and Nic, Tricia often travels to Manchester for a good old dose of stress and a quick nip round Marks and Sparks. Formerly an assistant editor of the organisation mag, and deputy chairperson of two divisions, Tricia, a pro-active executive member, now holds the portfolio for special projects in the office of the chairperson of World WIZO, the international Zionist women's organisation whose focus is the betterment of Israeli society. She produces a newsletter, marketing material and content for social media sites. She is staunchly Zionist, totally honest, somewhat irreligious and highly principled. Some may say she is politically incorrect, but Tricia believes in fairness and transparency and adheres to the 'do as you would be done by' rule of thumb.

  1. Well said Trish,
    For those of us who live in and have a love of Israel, it is hard to understand the blatant Anti Semitism and Anti Israel propagated by those who previously supported Israel and now allow the radical Islamists to rule their future.

    1. You have hit the nail on the head. I cringe when I see what is going on in the UK but then, yet again, I have to remind myself that England, and the rest of Europe has centuries of anti Semitism in its history. We think that England saved the Jews from Hitler, but |England was merely saving itself from Hitler,, not the Jew per se. Whilst continually patting themselves on the back for the Kindertransport and saving 10,000 children, they ignore the fact that those children were torn from their mothers arms, who they did not allow to accompany them, and those same mothers perished in the chambers. Would that behavior be tolerated now in the so called multi cultural England? How the anti semites today are cursing us. The Jews of today, do not need their favours any more. They see the Middle East, in flames, and little Israel, which is being nurtured by those same Jews who they hate, and belittle, and ridicule, is standing firm, an oasis of success. How they are squirming, and are using the word Zionism instead of the word Jews in an attempt to justify their hatred, the same old hatred but in a different form. The most painful part is that the Jewish community, in an attempt to cling on to their lives in England, are turning on their own people with claims such as ‘Not in my name’. I feel sorry for them. They will never know the pride of really being a free Jew, a Jew who can stand up for himself, instead of capitulating to that same Anti Semitism which has passed on from generation to generation, sometimes underground, and sometimes, like today’s Labor party, openly coming to the surface. The Hebrew phase. ‘Ein hadash mitachat hashemesh’ (There is nothing new under the sun’) is as true today as it ever was.

  2. An eloquent and accurate blog Tricia. Living on the ‘other side’ i.e. In England, the feelings towards the Jewish people is growing more negative by the hour. The growing cancer of hate is tangible. What is most worrying is that the uneducated are jumping on the hatred bandwagon and one can only hope that the sensible and knowledgeable in this country will not allow this to continue out of hand. It is almost possible now to have an understanding of what happened in Germany in the 1930s as the disbelief of this issue takes over from the reality of the bubbling tension beneath the surface. “Lest we forget” has never been more pertinent in the last 70 years as it is now. We must stand up and be heard and not “roll over and play dead” thinking that this kind of attack on Jews and Israel could never happen again.
    It’s happening now!
