Anti-Israel agenda has been facilitated over decades

Jew baiting, Palestinians, Jew

The unprecedented, recent outpouring of global support for Palestinians paralleled and united by rabid anti-Israeli opposition has been carefully designed, manufactured and promoted by both well financed, neo fascist Islamic and far left organizations. The spontaneity of the demonstrations is similar to the Orwellian version depicted in Animal Farm. Apologies to those unfamiliar with Orwell’s masterpiece. Knowing that the far left, the Greens and other antisemitic elements would act as their subservient, sycophantic stooges the opportunity to threaten democracy, impose fear and ignore accepted standards of decency was readily available to those conducting the orchestra.  The idea that the organizers truly care about the Palestinian plight is a myth, a lie and a false narrative. Thousands of Palestinians have been killed in the last decade by Assad’s Syria and no similar protests have occurred. History is proof that if Jews can be identified as the villain, the mob will jump on the Jew hating bandwagon and such history is currently repeating itself.

As at the time of writing a recent, UK by – election victory has been won by a rabid anti-Jewish state politician, amid accusations of voter fraud, threats and intimidation to the opposition. The mainly Muslim constituency has been stirred up by Jew baiting rhetoric disguised as a pro Palestinian agenda. Voters have been threatened and democracy is at risk. The mob totally ignorant of the geographical and historical dynamics have been would up by the false rhetoric aimed at the Jewish state and the mainstream media have been compliant.

UK Parliamentarians too are needing extra security as their offices are firebombed, and death threats issued leading to MP resignations. Council meetings are being disrupted, unable to complete normal local business. This week one brave councilor was heard to challenge the baying disruptive pro-Palestinian mob by shouting back – “this is Chorley not Gaza”.

Jewish owned shops are being vandalized and Jewish people intimidated as antisemitic incidents are on a steeply rising record-breaking trajectory exacerbated by frequent and well organized, intimidating demonstrations causing widespread havoc in our towns and cities. Police authorities are too scared to impose and enforce established laws challenging and criminalizing mob rule and there is a strong media element which incredibly supports the aims of the protesters as being within the realms of freedom of speech and the right to protest. These aims are indeed noble but the protests have morphed into racist hate marches, the Jew, as ever being their target. Democratic values are clearly being threatened by mob rule and will continue to be threatened unless proper action is expedited.

Currently in every major European city the Palestinian flag is a regular adornment and together with placards elaborating “From the River to the Sea” have become standard armory of the mob. A recent poll supported by journalists interviewing protesters verified that the vast majority of those marching had no idea of the name of the river nor the sea the placards were referring to let alone being a rallying cry for Jew extermination. If those marching knew that the two Palestinian charters demanded not only Jew extermination and subservience to Islam or death of all other races would it make any difference to them? My feeling is that human nature never changes. We even have the absurdity of the LGBT community, detested by Hamas and religious Palestinians, actually marching in support of those who regularly execute members of their sexual orientation. The phrase turkeys in support of Christmas springs to mind.  Utter mindless stupidity and the paradox of all paradoxes surely.

The anti-Israel agenda has been facilitated over decades by major news organizations such as the BBC, CNN and naturally the Qatari owned and funded Al Jazeera the most influential media outlet to the Muslim world. Social media is inundated with vile Jew hate which unbelievably is allowed and only occasionally removed. A recent incident in which scores of Palestinians were killed in a stampede has been erroneously blamed on Israel by mainstream media when clearly this was not the case. Too late as the public relations damage has been done and the mob have used the incident to further inflame tensions using the old blood libel tricks of yesteryear.

The most ‘respected’ global media institution, the BBC has itself been exposed during this Gaza conflict as reporting mythology before checking sources. One incident was Al-Ahli hospital bombing the BBC’s Jon Donnison blamed on Israel in which scores of Palestinians were killed. In fact the Palestinians were to blame for misfired rockets. The BBC retracted days after, brought the journalist home but the damage had been done in the world of immediate, viral public relations.

To challenge this overwhelming assault on the only Jewish State in the world which impacts all Jewish people irrespective of their individual politics, is an enormous struggle but nevertheless must be managed and maintained. There are some rays of light in the U.K. which I hope can be expanded to other geographies. For example two fairly new UK media TV channels, GB News and Talk TV are offering balance to the overwhelming anti-Israeli output of all the other mainstream media channels. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that viewing numbers for these channels are on an uphill trajectory whilst the opposite is happening to the established mainstream media channels.

In addition, it is apparent that the Israeli government is at last recognizing the necessity of attractive and intellectually competent public relations with the introduction of some new media presenters. There is however still much room for improvement and it has been suggested that pro-Israeli entrepreneurs engage and coordinate in creating a united approach via current or indeed a new media outlet. It is impossible to effectively challenge and change the narrative without vast, well-funded, positive public relations resources.

We have no idea when the Gaza crisis will end but what we do know is that Hamas will be militarily defeated and those UN organizations such as UNWRA will no longer have the personnel, funding nor influence they previously enjoyed and used so obstructively against Israel. We also know that Iran has had a limb removed. If Donald Trump regains the US Presidency it is highly likely that more Sunni Arab countries will join the Abraham Accords which will ultimately lead to peace in the region and limit the powers of the Shia Islamist bloc.

Military and political victory is in sight for Israel and her population and that is to be welcomed by all morally decent folk and the silent majority. Irrespective of those victories the equally important public relations battle is far from being won and must be continuously monitored, addressed and improved. Moreover, if the mob continue to behave as they have been behaving and allowed to go unchallenged by the law, western democracy is at risk.

  1. In 1919, Lord Balfour was directed to assert the borders of Israel. He determined that Israel should include the southern third of what is now Lebanon, Syria, and Iraq. All of Jordan, a significant part of Saudi Arabia, and nearly all of the Sinia Pennincilla. Lord Balfour was certain that 90% of Europe’s Jewish population would starve to death when settled there. He and the Jew-hating Nazis of mid-century Germany would have greeted each other with a big grin and a congratulatory handshake over their final solution.

    The Palestinians were nomads ordered by the clerics and Immans to settle on lands that were about to become Israel. It is Muslims appropriating and occupying Jewish land.
