"Next Year in Jerusalem" ..Gordon Brown heaps praise on the Zionist thugs and their apartheid state and calls it a democracy
"And to those who believe that threatening statements fall upon indifferent ears we say in one voice: that it is totally abhorrent for the President of Iran to call for Israel to be wiped from the map of the world."
The Prime Minister, in a sickening and sycophantic speech at the Knesset repeated, re-inforced and gave legitimacy to the often misquoted remarks of Mr Ahmadinejad when quoting Khomeini .
The Government's voice, BBC Online provide a snippet of video , again repeating this solecism, provided, as Craig Murray points out, by busy revisionist speech writers in the FCO. For good measure the BBC not only mis-quote Mr Ahmadinejad when quoting Khomeini they mis-quote the Prime Minister ... as saying " to be wiped off the map".
The cloying phrases of the Prime Minister reflect how his childhood was steeped in a romanticised view of Israel advocated by his father, blinded by the socialist ideals, and the prodigious energy and toil of the early settlers - which you can read about in Gold Meir's autobiography My Life "We cannot afford any more victories".
Lord Patel was fortunate enough to be simultaneously toning his buff physique at the gym and watched the complete speeach , the first given by a British Prime Minister to the Knesset, on Sky TV. It was watched in a relaxed silence , with much anxious wrist watch glancing, sly reading of notes and nervous tics manifesting themselves in a variety of scratching, nose poking, ear tugging ways.
Surprisingly his explanation of his youthful admiration for their land and it's people and Parliament raised neither a cheer nor an eyebrow...."My father was a Minister of the Church who learned Hebrew and had a deep and life long affection for Israel. For three decades he was a member of - and again and again Chairman of - the Church of Scotland's Israel Committee. And he travelled back and forth to Israel twice every year, often more.
After each trip, he would roll out the old film projector ....I will never forget those early images of your home in my home and the stories my father would tell.
So as I learned to listen and to read, I followed the fortunes of an age-old people in your new country. And there was never a time as I was growing up that I did not hear about, read about or was not surrounded by stories of the struggles, sacrifices, tribulation and triumphs as the Israeli people built their new state. And I am proud to say that for the whole of my life, I have counted myself a friend of Israel. "(speech at No 10 website)
As he learnt to listen and read , he evidently also never learnt that you do not start sentences with a conjunction... "I have counted myself a friend of Israel. " a phrase that would have lifted the roof at AIPAC , had Tzipi Livni , the daughter of one of the original gangsters, whom David Ben Gurion sent to Europe to assassinate political leaders, carefully straightening her stockings.
As he learnt to listen and read he must have also missed out on the tales of ethnic cleansing, the land grabs, the terrorism, the Nabka, the occupation, the refugee camps.
Gulping in the curious way a beached fish does, our anxious to please, semi-autistic Prime Minister was certain and sure to idolise, Father of the Nation , David Ben Gurion ("We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.”) who he reminded them had said .."in 1948 said it was not enough for the Jewish state simply to be Jewish, it had to be fully democratic offering equal citizenship to all residents: a democracy not just of one people but of all your peoples..." and founded an apartheid state separated not only by an obscene and divisive wall but also by the coralling of 1 million refugees. As in some mediaeval siege they are systematically starved, shelled, refused food, medicines, electricity, access inwards or out at the lazy will of their military overlords , shot like fish in a barrel. ( see Free Gaza)
It was therefore unsurprising that this nod towards the state's illustrious founder was immediately followed by a paen of praise for the chief gangster , the capo di capo "I think of Menachem Begin - who reached out to Anwar Sadat" .. after a lifetime of terrorist savagery, proprietor of the Irgun gang of heartless butchers and bombers , that murdered British citizens and statesmen alike, and whose state thugs extended their operations beyond the shores of Israel... and who also dandled the child of his fellow thug, Tzipi Livni on his knee. He also said after the U.N. vote to partition Palestine.."Jerusalem was and will for ever be our capital. Eretz Israel will be restored to the people of Israel. All of it. And for Ever." He also said after winning the election in 1977 and becoming Israel's 6th Prime Minister ; "the Jewish people have unchallengeable, eternal, historic right to the Land of Israel the inheritance of their forefathers", he came from what is now Byelorussia and also ordered the bombing of the Iraq nuclear reactor at Osirak in 1981.
This received a warm round of applause and polite banging of desks.
The peroration was sickening..."Then 'Next year in Jerusalem' will mean not only home at last but free from war at last..." "Next year in Jerusalem" the heartfelt cry of the diaspora at the end of every Passover seder. "Next year in Jeruslaem" carries a resonance - Psalm 137 is the well-known lament of the Babylonian Jews who wept "by the rivers of Babylon" and declared, "If I forget you, O Jerusalem, let my right hand wither."
The speech was long, too long. As the pound of flesh demanded, by the superb bargainers they are, it will have secured adequate funding for the Nu Labour Party for the next Election.
There are repeated demands in the US , in Senate, in Congress and the myriad Jewish / Zionist lobbies for the US to move their Embassy to Jerusalem. If the FCO were happy to endorse this stocmach churning, arse licking, fantastical view of the dystopic Zionist state then perhaps the Ambassador will follow ..." Next Year in Jerusalem"... now that would get them dancing in the aisles.
As Craig Murray pointed out .."For Gordon Brown to stand craving approval from the assembly that controls the World's largest illegal arsenal of nuclear weapons, without mentioning that fact, is craven." In popular political parlance, this is the "gorilla in the room", the inconvenient truth, the skeleton in the cupboard, it is also a fact that the BBC will never utter or accept. (Although they reported Jimmy Carter saying Israel had 150 nukes)..they also reported "He also described Israeli treatment of Palestinians as "one of the greatest human rights crimes on earth".
It is also precisely why Iran wants to arm themselves.
The Jewish state is the cuckoo in the Arab nest. The cuckoo chick is primed genetically , and built physically, and it's hatching timed, so that it can eject it's competing fledglings in the nest.
Hegemony in the Middle East is their ultimate goal, supported by gross financial aid from the US , which exceeds all the other overseas aid that the US provides, they want military dominance and control of trade routes and resources.
Iran thinks they should be stopped.
Mr Gordon Brown, has made it clear that he and his colleagues are firmly behind the anti-democratic, apartheid state of Israel and it's gang of Zionist thugs, they are , with their sanitised , blinkered and romantic views, with the settlers.
PS : Just to be on the safe side, Gordon also popped round the back and had a word with that nice Mr Netanyahu (First of all, Arafat is wrong. Jerusalem is Israel's capital, will never be divided, and will remain the capital of the State of Israel, the capital of the Jewish people, for ever and ever) - well it makes sense seeing that a recent poll showed that of those who voted whom they would choose for the next Prime Minister voted 37% - Netanyahu 20% - Barak 10% - Olmert
