Now, It's Time to Rid British Government of Israel's Stooges

London is “angry” over the use of stolen identities by the Dubai assassins and points its finger at the Jewish state and its notorious Mossad espionage agency. The Israeli ambassador to Britain, Ron Prosor, was invited to the Foreign Office on 18 February by Peter Ricketts, the head of the UK's diplomatic service, to “share information”. Although Britain stopped short of accusing Israel of involvement in the scandalous assassination of a top Hamas official, to signal its displeasure London ignored an Israeli plea to keep the meeting secret. "Relations were in the freezer before this. They are in the deep freeze now," a British official told the Guardian.David Miliband’s duplicity
The British anger at Israel would have been a positive signal in the right direction had we not been aware of British Foreign Secretary David Miliband investing enormous efforts trying to alter Britain’s ethical stand just to appease Tzipi Livni, Ehud Barak and other Israeli leaders.The British Foreign Office’s reaction could almost be deemed a revelation, were we able to forget that just five weeks before Israel launched its lethal criminal attack against Gaza David Miliband visited Sderot, an Israeli town on the border with Gaza, to offer his support. "No country can accept constant bombardment of its citizens,” Miliband told the people of Sderot. He then continued: “Israel should, above all, seek to protect its own citizens."
It is that foolish statement by Britain’s foreign secretary that has made us all complicit in Israel’s flattening of Gaza. Bearing these facts in mind, it is rather unlikely that the Israeli ambassador to Britain was sweating while “sharing information” with the chief aid to the British foreign secretary.
British complicity is Dubai murder
In the last few days Robert Fisk reported from the Middle East that in Dubai there is not much doubt about Britain being involved in the Israeli blunder. "The British passports are real,” says one of Fisk’s sources in Dubai. “They are hologram pictures with the biometric stamp. They are not forged or fake. The names were really there. If you can fake a hologram or biometric stamp, what does this mean?" The truth about this had better be revealed.
As if this were not enough, the Israeli news website Ynet reported today, quoting the Daily Mail, that Israel informed the British government that its agents were going to carry out an “overseas operation” using forged British passports. “It wasn't a request for permission, but rather a courtesy call.”
If Britain collaborated with Israel at any level, we should be told all about it, and we should be told who collaborated with Israel – a person, a body within the government or the intelligence services, or just an ordinary sayan in the Home Office or some other government department. If there was British collaboration, we had better identify what it was exactly and who decided to serve the murderous Israeli interests. We had also better find out who in Britain decided to put British interests and British security in the Arab world at enormous risk.
In the Guardian yesterday Seumas Milne didn’t mince his words either. “Instead of setting off a diplomatic backlash, the British government sat on its hands for almost a week after it was reportedly first passed details of the passport abuse. And while the Foreign Office finally summoned the Israeli ambassador to ‘share information’, rather than to protest, Gordon Brown could yesterday only promise a ‘full investigation’.”
Paralysed by Israel lobby
The truth of the matter is tragic. The British political system is paralysed by the Israel lobby. As with the USA, British national interests are sacrificed for the sake of dirty Zionist cash. If Britain wants to liberate itself from the Zionist grip and have any prospect of a future, it must move fast and clean the entire list of Zionist infiltrators from its political ranks, government offices and strategic positions. I am not talking here about Jews. In no way am I mentioning ethnicity or race. I am talking here about a political and ideological affiliation. Given that Zionism is a murderous, racist, expansionist ideology, it is natural to stress that people who are affiliated with Israel and Zionism must be removed immediately from any political, government, military or security posts.As much as Britain would refrain from delegating decisions regarding its security to Arab, Chinese or Russian nationalists, it should similarly treat Jewish nationalists with at least as much caution.
Public patience with Israeli barbarism running out
But here is the good news. In contrast to the Zionized British political system, the British people and media are actually outraged. The Mossad’s blunder, as well as British political impotence, has been overwhelmingly exposed in the British media. It is on the front page of every British daily paper and it is featured on every TV news. There is no doubt that today patience with Israeli barbarism is running out.
A few years back I was listening to a talk given by Dr Mustafa
Barghouti who pointed out that back in 1948 the world stood silent
watching 750,000 Palestinian people being driven out of their land,
their villages and their cities through an orchestrated ethnic cleansing
coupled with many massacres. The world kept silent when Israel created
its racist return laws to prevent the Palestinians from returning to
their land. In 1967, the developed world wasn’t just silent, it actually
praised the Israeli expansionist extravaganza. It applauded the Israeli
army as it cleansed tens of thousands of Palestinians out of their
Sayan – a unique and important part of the Mossad's operation. The sayan (assistant) must be 100 per cent Jewish. The sayan supports the Israeli cause and assists the Mossad operation. Victor Ostrovsky, the veteran Mossad agent, says: “There are thousands of sayanim around the world. In London alone, there are about 2,000 who are active, and another 5,000 on the list…”Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born musician, writer and anti-racism campaigner.
