Ten days ago, pretty much out of the blue, British PM Theresa May announced that she decided to accept the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of antisemitism and to integrate it into British law. Jews in Britain and all over the world were over the moon.  Tonight we learn that May’s declaration was a preemptive move. It was Britain rather than the USA that had been pulling the strings behind the anti Israel Security Council resolution.

Haaretz reports tonight  that it was actually the Brits that “encouraged New Zealand to continue pushing for a vote even without Egyptian support.” Israeli diplomats say that from information that reached the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem, British legal figures and diplomats had been working directly with the Palestinians on the wording of the resolution even before it was distributed by Egypt the first time on Wednesday evening.

The suspicion in Jerusalem is that the British had been working during all those days for the Americans to make sure the “resolution was to U.S. President Barack Obama’s liking, but without the need to intervene directly in formulating it.”

“We know how to read Security Council resolutions,” a senior Israeli diplomat said in the most non-diplomatic manner. “This is not a text that was formulated by the Palestinians or Egypt, but by a Western power.”

Western diplomats have confirmed to Haaretz that there is“no proof that it was the U.S. administration that was behind the whole move.”

Zionists all over the world praised Theresa May in the passing week for adopting the IHRA definition of antisemitism. The notoriously imbecilic Zionist Manfred Gerstenfeld wrote in the Jerusalem Post  “in the definition text it says that it is antisemitic to apply double standards by requiring of Israel a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.” The truth of the matter is that Theresa May has managed to single out the Jewish state and its criminality.  Gerstenfeld thought PM May was about to shatter the BDS once and for all. The fact is that the recent security council resolution has achieved far more than the BDS ever dreamed of.

I guess the Jewish Lobby here may gather it by now—their only potential ally within British politics is Jeremy Corbyn and what ever is left of the Labour party.


P.S my son this evening: “She already stole Corbyn’s left-wing rhetoric, can’t she let him keep the anti-Israeli mantle at least?”

Gilad Atzmon is an Israeli-born British jazz saxophonist, novelist, political activist and writer.

Atzmon's album Exile was BBC jazz album of the year in 2003. Playing over 100 dates a year,[4] he has been called "surely the hardest-gigging man in British jazz." His albums, of which he has recorded nine to date, often explore the music of the Middle East and political themes. He has described himself as a "devoted political artist." He supports the Palestinian right of return and the one-state solution in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

His criticisms of Zionism, Jewish identity, and Judaism, as well as his controversial views on The Holocaust and Jewish history have led to allegations of antisemitism from both Zionists and anti-Zionists. A profile in The Guardian in 2009 which described Atzmon as "one of London's finest saxophonists" stated: "It is Atzmon's blunt anti-Zionism rather than his music that has given him an international profile, particularly in the Arab world, where his essays are widely read."

His new book The Wandering Who? is now availble at

  1. Want to bet May will be one of those people pushing the “official” story of that false flag? This resolution doesn’t do anything other than foment the mindless siege mentality the Rothschild cartel requires to operate. When Britain, one of the headquarters of that cartel wants to do something substantive, please let me know…

  2. Interesting that before 1942, even some notable ‘Zionists’ were totally against the Israeli state, but merely advocated re-locating to Palestine with consent of local Arabs, respecting all their rights & building a society upon the good Muslim-Jewish co-operation that had existed for over 1000 years

    But unfortunately, Zionist fascists following the Mussolini-admiring Jabotinsky, won the day, & crushed the Arab-friendly Jews, despite support by Martin Buber for the ‘Ihud’ – ‘Unity’ – in other words ‘one state’ movement … Jewish but anti-Zionist libertarian economist Murray Rothbard, in a key 1967 essay summarising the crimes of the Israeli state up to that point, ‘War Guilt in the Middle East’ (on the antiwar com website), wrote about Ihud:

    « Revered Dr Judah Magnes, president of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem & head of the Ihud movement, bitterly denounced “Zionist Totalitarianism,” which, he charged, is trying to bring “the entire Jewish people under its influence by force & violence. I have not yet seen the Zionist terrorists called by their rightful names: Killers – brutalised men and women. … All Jews in America share in the guilt, even those not in accord with the activities of this new pagan leadership, but who sit at ease with folded hands….” Shortly afterward, Dr Magnes felt it necessary to exile himself from Palestine & emigrate to the United States. »

    • Sorry Brabantian but in 1942 all notable Zionists were pursuing a Jewish State,,, it wasn’t Just Jabotinsky,,,It was Ben Gurion and his clique … those who believed in Bi National state were margina… Palestinian Jews were (also) totally marginalised within the Zionist movement ,…

  3. It’s amazing that it is a woman who finally displays some balls, to stand against the Kazarian hierarchic machine, because the men have no longer any back bone.
    Well done England!

  4. Thanks for this update, Gilad

    Personally, I never viewed this UNSC resolution as “anti-Israel”. I viewed it as simple common sense and LONG overdue.

    “in the definition text it says that it is antisemitic to apply double standards by requiring of Israel a behavior not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation.”

    Quite frankly, there is no other nation on earth that claims to be democratic, while treating members of its society the way Israel treats the Palestinians. I often wonder what the Jews of America would say, if America decided that from now on, it would be considered a Christian state, where only Christians would be able to enjoy the full rights and benefits of American land and society? My bet is, American Jews would be furious. So who is employing double standards?

    • Good question Edward,, Brits are never overwhelmingly competent as a military force,,, but they always win wars… why? because of diplomacy….this is what we see now…

    • Eddy:

      The Falklands War was simply another American colonial rape project. Galtieri was an American assrt. The US and Israel armed him to attack Britain’s little colony (look up Israel armed Argentina in Falklands War) The US as always played both sides. Thatcher begged for missiles to take out the Argy jets and America finally relented and supplied them.

      Immediately after the war Thatcher privatised the best British defence companies and they were bought up by the Americans.
