Crucifying Corbyn: former Chief Rabbi joins in

The anti-Semitism smear-mongering gets more bizarre each day

The nasty slur campaign against Jeremy Corbyn has just plumbed new depths with a hark-back to 1968 and the “Rivers of Blood” speech by Enoch Powell. It seems to have been prompted by a remark Corbyn made in 2013 that British Zionists had two problems: “One is they don’t want to study history and, secondly, having lived in this country for a very long time, probably all their lives, they don’t understand English irony.”

In anti-Semitism terms that’s a flogging offence, even when it might be true. The former Chief Rabbi, Lord Jonathan Sacks, immediately took umbrage saying that Corbyn’s criticism of British Zionists was the most offensive statement made by a senior politician since Enoch Powell’s Rivers of Blood speech. Sacks told the New Statesman: “It was divisive, hateful and, like Powell’s speech, it undermines the existence of an entire group of British citizens by depicting them as essentially alien.”

He said Corbyn had implied “Jews are not fully British” and that he was “using the language of classic pre-war European anti-Semitism”, adding that Corbyn was an anti-Semite who “defiles our politics and demeans the country we love”. He had “given support to racists, terrorists and dealers of hate who want to kill Jews and remove Israel from the map”.
Sacks’ words could equally be taken to mean those who align themselves with Israeli hate and the wish to kill Palestinians and wipe Palestine from the map – which they have already done quite literally. And if Corbyn defiles our politics so does the Israel lobby. But the irony must have escaped him.

Just how righteous is the moralising Lord Sacks? In a House of Lords debate in 2014 on the Middle East in general and the question of formal recognition of Palestine by the UK in particular, the former Chief Rabbi got up and made a speech that was more like a pro-Israel rant.

After a long winded spiel about the history of Israel and Jerusalem – from the Jewish angle of course – he went on to demonise Hamas and Hezbollah in the manner recommended by Israel’s ‘hasbara’ handbook and all the more absurd when Israel’s hands are so unclean. Everyone knows that Hamas has agreed to a long-term truce with Israel provided it ends the illegal occupation, gets back behind its 1967 borders and accepts the refugees’ right of return – all as per UN resolutions and subject to a Palestinian referendum. And Hezbollah, as Sacks knows perfectly well, was formed to resist the Israeli occupation of Lebanon after the 1982 war.

Israel, said Sacks, is the place where his people were born almost 4,000 years ago. As an ardent promoter of the Jewish religion, the Jewish state and the idea that God gave Jews exclusive title to Jerusalem, he seemed oblivious to the irony of his speech especially where he said: “When ancient theologies are used for modern political ends, they speak a very dangerous language indeed. So, for example, Hamas and Hezbollah, both self-defined as religious movements, refuse to recognise the legitimacy of the state of Israel within any boundaries whatever and seek only its complete destruction.”

Where does he get his information? Israel won’t define its boundaries, leaving them fluid for endless expansion, and does a first-class job of de-legitimising itself by its defiance of international law and utter contempt for norms of human decency and obligations under UN Charter and other agreements.

Zionists distort the scriptures to claim Jerusalem is theirs by Divine right, but it was already 2000 years old and an established, fortified city when King David captured it. The Jews lost Jerusalem to the Babylonians, recaptured it, then lost it again to the Roman Empire in 63BC. When they rebelled Hadrian threw them out in 135. Until the present illegal occupation the Jews had only controlled Jerusalem for some 500 years, small beer compared to the 1,277 years it was subsequently ruled by Muslims and the 2000 years, or thereabouts, it originally belonged to the Canaanites.

Jerusalem was also a Christian city. The 4th century saw the building of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. The Persians came and went. Then, after the Islamic conquest in 690, two major shrines were constructed over the ruins of the earlier temples — the Dome of the Rock from which Muhammed is said to have ascended to Heaven, and the Al-Aqsa Mosque. The Crusaders re-took Jerusalem in 1099 and The Temple Mount became the headquarters of the Knights Templar. In 1187 Saladin ended the Crusader Kingdom and restored the city to Islam while allowing Jews and Christians to remain if they wished.

As the saying goes, “None has claim. All have claim!”

Nowhere in his speech did Lord Sacks address the main question of British recognition of Palestinian statehood. Nowhere did he recommend the jackboot of oppression be immediately lifted and the Palestinians granted their human rights and their freedom. That would surely have been the Christian position and, I imagine, the true Jewish one.

It is what the Rabbi failed to say on this important occasion that makes me wonder whether he’s an instrument of God or just another preacher of Israeli ‘hasbara’. I read somewhere that Lord Sacks is of Polish/Lithuanian extraction. Most Palestinians can demonstrate ancestral ties to the ancient Holy Land. Can he?

 


“Jeremy Corbyn moved the rock and the anti-semites crawled out”

Corbyn is also in trouble over a remark he made in 2010 at a meeting of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign suggesting that MPs who took part in a parliamentary debate on the Middle East had their comments prepared for them by the Israeli ambassador. I’d say that was fair comment although the scriptwriters were more likely to have been Mark Regev’s propaganda team in Tel Aviv. Regev, a propaganda expert from the dark side, is now Israel’s ambassador in London. Oh, the irony (again).

And a few days ago we heard that Jews are preparing to quit Britain because they fear Jeremy Corbyn taking power, according to former chairman of the Conservative Party Lord Feldman. So says The Times.

Feldman wrote an open letter to Mr Corbyn telling him that Jewish people were making contingency plans to emigrate because Labour had become a hotbed of anti-Jewish feeling. “Many Jewish people in the United Kingdom are seriously contemplating their future here in the event of you becoming prime minister. Quietly, discreetly and extremely reluctantly, they are making contingency plans.”

One of these is Mark Lewis, a prominent solicitor and a former director of lawfare firm UK Lawyers for Israel, who is emigrating to Israel with his partner, Mandy Blumenthal. It is believed she is the National Director of Likud-Herut UK, an affiliate of the Zionist Federation and whose website is full of preposterous ideas such as: “We believe that terms like ‘illegal occupation’ should never go unchallenged….” and “Such criticism as we may have [of Israel] should never be expressed publicly….”

Lewis, who describes himself as an ‘unapologetic Zionist’, said: “Jeremy Corbyn moved the rock and the antisemites crawled out from underneath.” And he told the Evening Standard: “I don’t feel welcome in this country any more.” So he’s off to that hotbed of racism and apartheid, Israel.

Being unwelcome is not a happy feeling. I know this from my trips to Israel, what with their rudeness, threatening behaviour, intrusive searches, hostile questioning and unforgivably vile treatment of our Palestinian friends. It’s not as if we want to be in Israel – we are forced to divert there on account of Israel’s illegal military occupation. And when we eventually reach Palestine we have to put up with the presence of arrogant Israeli gunslingers strutting the streets, setting up hundreds of roadblocks, using obstructive tactics with brutish behaviour, creating endless queues and interfering with Palestinian life at every level.

And if we try traveling to Palestine direct, like the humanitarian aid boats Al-Awda and Freedom last month, we get violently and unlawfully assaulted on the high seas, beaten up, thrown in a stinking Israeli jail and have our belongings and money stolen by the Israeli military desperate to maintain their illegal blockade of Gaza.

So, if Messrs Feldman, Lewis and Blumenthal feel more comfortable with those criminals they’d better join them.

In answer to the babble put out by Zio-propagandists, church leaders in the Holy Land issued their 2006 Jerusalem Declaration saying:

“We categorically reject Christian Zionist doctrines as false teaching that corrupts the biblical message of love, justice and reconciliation.

“We further reject the contemporary alliance of Christian Zionist leaders and organizations with elements in the governments of Israel and the United States that are presently imposing their unilateral pre-emptive borders and domination over Palestine… We reject the teachings of Christian Zionism that facilitate and support these policies as they advance racial exclusivity and perpetual war rather than the gospel of universal love, redemption and reconciliation.”

This still stands. And as the Declaration also points out, “discriminative actions [by the Occupation] are turning Palestine into impoverished ghettos surrounded by exclusive Israeli settlements. The establishment of the illegal settlements and the construction of the Separation Wall on confiscated Palestinian land undermines the viability of a Palestinian state as well as peace and security in the entire region”.

That comes from genuine churchmen working in the front line against armed Zio-thugs whose vicious day-to-day persecution of the Christian and Muslim communities in the Holy Land makes a nonsense of accusations of anti-semitism in the UK.

I think we can deduce from all this that Zionism is a menace. Nothing has changed for the better; it has got steadily worse.

 

“We want our Jerusalem back, and our state”

In 2010 Fr Manuel Musallam, a gritty Catholic priest with long experience of Israel’s cruel and illegal occupation, told members of the Irish Government: “Christianity in the region has been destroyed not by Muslims but by Israel. Israel destroyed the church of Palestine and the church of Jerusalem beginning in 1948. It, not Muslims, has sent Christians in the region into a diaspora… We have spoken to Israel for more than 18 years and the result has been zero. We have signed agreements here and there at various times and then when there is a change in the Government of Israel we have to start again from the beginning. We ask for our life and to be given back our Jerusalem, to be given our state and for enough water to drink… I have not seen Jerusalem since 1990.”

Archbishop Theodosius Hanna (Greek Orthodox Church) told them: “Palestine is the place from where Christianity comes…. Everything that has happened to the Palestinians between 1948 and today has happened to all Palestinians, including Christian Palestinians.

“What we are after is freedom and dignity just as freedom and dignity have been bestowed on so many nations in the world. We want that too. When we speak about peace, we also speak about justice because it is impossible to have peace without justice. Peace is part of justice. Unfortunately, in the Holy Land there is no such thing as justice.”

Corbyn should remind his tormentors of all this and take no lectures from those who support Zionism and adore the racist state it spawned.

  1. Wow, beautiful story Khalid. Our history and religions will never teach us the truth, rather history warped to their own agenda. Thank you.

  2. May be it was not so at the beginning ,in 1990 when zionism launched their new forced history rewrite campaign about the Holocaust . But now it is impossible to deny or contradict the fact that Holocaust is a mediatic massacre . Among the 70 millions of deads in WWII , the may be 72 millions of deads made by the Goulag org during 72 years , the 60 millions deads made by the American never-ending wars since Korea & Vietnam… no one can pretend to such a mediatic promotion than the heroes of the jewish saga !
    And the Jews know well how to cripple the true history facing a good film . We see it in the film but …did any Jew actually go to french landing beaches in 1944 , to save private Ryan ?

  3. It is totally unacceptable and ridiculous that Jews want to influence any government to abide by their wishes. If they do not like what British government is doing then they should go back to Israel. Now they have “their! country which they stole so leave the rest of the world alone.
    Their greed, selfishness, control, and devious ways have no boundaries and why? because they have been allowed to do that.

  4. Did some one wonder that these Zios can only find what Corbyn said or did five or eight years ago, were they sleeping all this time ? All Corbyn said is that these people have been living in Britten for such a long time and yet have not understood the British ways, what of talk of assimilation.
    I know that God gave Moses all the essential things in writing and if they claim God gave them this land and not in Yemen as their history says they must show it to prove it.
    If they are don’t want to assimilate in the country they are living , like the never did in most countries they lived, and worry so much for Israel why they don’t they go and live there or go live in countries they came from.

  5. Some points here to our Khazarian and Jewish friends , you were expelled from Britain in 1290 by edict of Edward I , that expulsion has never been revoked, only the Monarch can revoke the edict , so under the terms of the edict , you have no right to be here nor right to be in our parliament nor in any public office. So feel free to go and join your ex- Bolshevik Russian mates in Judea. I call it Judea because that’s where the Semitic branch of the Jews came from. The kingdom of Israel was to the north of Judea and that’s nothing to do with them.
    Good web site
    https://www.bitchute.com/channel/jews_for_hitler/
    explains why they are not the chosen people and they have no claim to the title Israel but only Judea.

    In the end analysis this is a move to oust Corbyn as he is one of the few in that Synagogue of Westminster not in their pocket. It has to say something that 80%+ of the Tories and 60%+ of the labour party are friends of Israel , no other country not even the USA

    • The majority of today’s Jews are not Semitic, but are Ashkenazi Jews (a Turkic strain) — converts to Judaism in the early 8th century. They are from a now defunct nation that was called Khazaria and was between the Black Sea and the Caspian Sea. The Ashkenazi made their living by tolls, taxes, merchandising, and money lending and have a long history of that. They were driven out by the Mongols around the 1200s and migrated into eastern Europe and southern Russia–setting up the first “banks” and loaning money to royalty. Later, they would use that money to foment revolutions and to try to advance communism, and have been the driving force behind toppling one royal kingdom after another, including the takeover of Russia and Ukraine in 1917, the murders of the Russian royal family, and the founding of the Soviet Union.

    • This is the whole history of England that asks to be rewriten , since 1688 .All the colonial havoc over the world starting in the 1700, is a jewish bank affair : the Bank of England …. since it’s very beginning : since it’s first chief ” shabbez Goy ” = William Paterson .

  6. Steve… great article. I would like to relate to you the Muslim side of the Islamic conquest of Jerusalem in 690.
    At the time Omar Ibn alKhatab was the Khalifa, the second after the death of the prophet Peace be upon him. It is true he sent a large army to open Jerusalem to the teachings of Islam. He sent the large army to discourage fighting, as proven by his most important command to his commanders “do not sack Jerusalem, surround it, do not set a siege and negotiate its opening.
    The inhabitance of Jerusalem refused to open the gates and issued their terms for admittance. The terms were that they would open the gates to one man only and no one else. The commanders asked who is this man? The answer from Jerusalem was we will know him when we see him.
    Restrained their orders, they sent for Omar ibn alKhatab. So Omar set on a journey to Jerusalem.

    • Omar took with him his servant and his private camel. On their journey, Omar allowed himself to ride the camel one day, his servant rode the next and both men walked the third day to rest the Camel. They took turns until they reached Jerusalem. As it happens, Omar arrived in Jerusalem and the Christians saw him pulling his camel while his servant rode. They recognized “the man of justice” and opened the gates and welcomed Omar into Jerusalem. The army remained outside and no weapons were allowed in the city. When it came time for the Muslim prayer, the welcoming committee of priests asked Omar to pray in the Church of the Holly Sepulchre. However, Omar prayed instead on its outside stairs. The priets asked Omar why did he not accept their invitation to pray inside? He explained that he did not wish to set a precedent that Muslims can pray in churches at any time.
      This is the Islam that is hidden from Western civilization by the same creatures that wish for a clash of religions.
