Jewish conspiracy theory in the UK....

Alive and well in the highest places...
A British Labor Party lawmaker and pro-Palestinian campaigner apologized on Friday for alluding to anti-Jewish conspiracy theories to encourage people to vote wisely in the upcoming general elections at an event in Parliament last month.

Speaking at a fringe meeting in the House of Commons on March 23, Martin Linton, founder and chairman of Labor Friends of Palestine & the Middle East, said: “There are long tentacles of Israel in this country who are funding election campaigns and putting money into the British political system for their own ends.

“You must consider over the next few weeks, when you make decisions about how you vote and how you advise constituents to vote, you must make them aware of the attempt by Israelis and by pro-Israelis to influence the election,” he said.

Another Labor MP, the anti-Israel activist Gerald Kaufman, said Lord Ashcroft, the wealthy Conservative Party donor, owned most of the party, and “right-wing Jewish millionaires” the rest.

I've always been a supporter of Israel, and I see nothing at all wrong with these comments, truth or falsity aside. I know I've said the same many times about Saudi Arabia's (Islam's) influence upon various political dealings. It's a fair point to make.

What is more disturbing to me is the Jewish response: calls to silence "racist" language (is Judaism really a race? Sounds like a dirty trick to me). "Anti-semitism" literally becomes meaningless when thrown around so easily. This guy should apply for a position on one of Canada's HRC's - he'd fit right in.

Incisor, Judaism is a religion. Jews are a race of people ethnically distinct, hence DNA tests can reveal a person's Jewish heritage.

It amazes me how people can bark crap about Jews being a fake people - somewhere along the line you'll come up with Jews are really Kazakhs or merely a group of Russians who converted. It's very convenient for you, as it allows you to debase Jews by denying their ancestry.

Judaism is a religion, Jews are a people. It's not hard.
