How The Israeli-Zionist Lobby Exerts Control Over Politicians


[Editor’s note: Here is a textbook example of how the pro-Israel Zionist lobby controls and manipulates politics; this example is from Britain, but the same holds true all across the world. Richard Burgon told the truth and now he finds his political career heading for the rocks. If he wishes to have a career in politics, he simply cannot be this forthright and honest, otherwise the Judeo-Zionist traitors hiding in the midst of the British people will destroy him. Ian]

Labour’s Richard Burgon says he regrets Zionism remarks

Shadow cabinet member Richard Burgon has said he regrets having said Zionism is the “enemy of peace”.

The Labour MP denied making the remark in a BBC interview last year, but he has now admitted doing so after footage emerged of him saying it.

The Labour Friends of Israel group had accused him of “seemingly misleading the public”.

Mr Burgon said he would not use the “simplistic language” again today.

The shadow justice secretary, an ally of Jeremy Corbyn, was asked about the comments in a BBC interview in March 2018, following newspaper reports in 2016 that he had made them.

Zionism refers to the movement to create, and protect, a Jewish state in the Middle East, roughly corresponding to the historical land of Israel.

When asked on the BBC’s Daily Politics show whether he had said Zionism was the enemy of peace, he replied: “No and it’s not my view”.

“I didn’t make those comments, I asked when I was meant to have made those comments. No one could tell me and it’s not my view”, he said at the time.

“So if it’s not my view, I wouldn’t have made those comments”, he added.

‘Different meanings’

However a new video shows Mr Burgon saying: “The enemy of the Palestinian people is not the Jewish people. The enemy of the Palestinian people are Zionists, and Zionism is the enemy of peace and the enemy of the Palestinian people.”

In a statement, Mr Burgon said he did not “recall” making the remark when asked about the 2016 newspaper reports, and had asked for details of the quote.

“I received no reply, so I believed it was inaccurate to have claimed that I had used that phrase. It is now clear that I did and I regret doing so”, he said.

“As I have subsequently said on numerous occasions when asked about this, I do not agree with that phrase”, he added.

“The terminology has different meanings to different people and the simplistic language used does not reflect how I now think about this complex issue and I would not use it again today”.

Journalist Iggy Ostanin, who released the video, said the footage was from 2014 – before Mr Burgon was elected as MP for Leeds East at the 2015 general election.

‘Weasel words’

Mr Burgon said he had been criticising the “aggressive expansionist policies” of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In the video, Mr Burgon also called for MPs who are members of Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) to resign from the group “in support of the Palestinian people”.

LFI Director Jennifer Gerber said: “For nearly two years, Richard Burgon has deployed half-denials and weasel words to escape responsibility for his appalling suggestion that Zionism is the enemy of peace.”

“Now that we’ve all seen exactly what he said, it’s time for Mr Burgon to apologise both for this slur on the Jewish people’s right to self-determination and for seemingly misleading the public about it”.

“Somebody who aspires to be one of the country’s leading legal figures simply cannot behave in this fashion.”

Amanda Bowman, Vice-President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, said Mr Burgon “should apologise for his comments and for his denial of them”.

“Richard Burgon’s denial and the subsequent revelation of his 2014 incitement against Zionists encapsulate the total sham of Labour’s approach to anti-Semitism”, she added.

  1. Genius or scientific expertise is not needed to realize that the math doesn’t add up. One thousand years ago, or 30 generations ago, each of us had about 1,073,741,824 ancestors. But wait you say, there were not that many people on earth. For the gene pool it was party time and sisters and cousins and maybe even mothers, were fair game. For those who didn’t want to blend with the herd, the A-males weren’t asking for opinions. Want to go for two thousand years? You can’t handle the math. There are some who claim to have had no part of this carnage and out of this chaotic conglomeration, they clung together and remained a pure race of a special tribe. If you believe it, that’s how they are selling you your own bridges and loaning you the money to buy them and charging tolls to use them.

  2. To get power over other beings is not the big problem but keeping it w/o terror regiment is the big one. And the regin of terror is what the chosen ones have to create day by day and they get slapt all over as reaction. This is the problem if you are chosen you´ve a lot of flak of the target and being hit harder than the non-chosen.

  3. The Zionist scepter of resource control through economic wizardry is all powerful to those without moral backbone. Mr Burgon should not have apologized to that Zionist witch Amanda Bowman. If Zionism is so critical to the tenets of Judaism (e.g; that Zionism is equal to Judaism as Amanda Bowman suggests) and that in some way justifies millenniums of conquest and war in the name of some false god, then it is the religion of Judaism that is the enemy of all Semitic people. It is the Zionists who deliberately exclude Arabs from the definition of “Semitic” with their bogus and false definition of Anti-Semitism based on the notion that practice of a religion has something to do with cultural origin. It most certainly does not. It also does not justify creation of a National state based solely on the belief that some religious cult of people is “chosen” to dominate over all others. That would indicate delusions of cultural supremacy. Oh and by the way…..the concept of self-determination pertains to all individuals. It is not exclusive to members of one religious cult.
