Cowards. And possibly, maybe, anti-Semites.

“Figures seen by the BBC show recorded hate crimes against Jewish people living in London have doubled compared with the same period last year, while police in Manchester said they had seen an increase in anti-Semitic crime over the last month,” the BBC reported.

In totally unrelated news, the British government revealed on Tuesday that they are suffering from a terminal case of moral equivalency and are prepared to cut off military aid to Israel if “significant hostilities” resume in Gaza.

Secretary of State for Business, Innovation, and Skills and Liberal Democrat MP Vince Cable announced this week that the United Kingdom would suspend the export licenses of 12 British firms which send Israel arms like radar systems, aircraft, and tanks if any new hostilities in Gaza restart.

The Huffington Post U.K. reported that the British left is incensed by how “weak” this move is against Israel.

That’s from Noah Rothman at Hot Air.

 

The Conservatives lead the current government, but it’s a coalition government that includes the Liberal Democrats.

Between how the UK is behaving now, and how American millennials can be expected to behave in the future, the time for Israel to totally destroy Hamas — root and branch — is right now. Get it done and none of this aid business will matter nearly as much.

Unfettered immigration is changing the character of what was Britain. Winston Churchill and Margaret Thatcher would barely recognize the place. That lesson isn’t lost on today’s Democrats here in the U.S. Obama regularly tells us conservatives that we’re the problem, we’re the greatest threat to the country. We would be less of a problem, of course, if our votes were canceled out.

Bloody British idiots! Don't you realize that Israel is not only fighting for her own life, but yours too? This fight goes far beyond a regional problem. It is for Western civilization, itself. www.why-israel.com

By threatening to punish Israel if the current cease fire fails, we see Britain offering Hamas an incentive to yet again break another cease fire. Thus making Britain complicit in the suffering in Gaza that is sure to follow after another failed cease fire.
This is called rewarding terrorism.

Do enjoy your amoral high ground, old chaps! But please do U.S. a favor, old bean. When the Blitz 2.0 begins anew, not from above but from within, do be a dear and lose our bloody number, won't you?

Best wishes,
Cousin Sam

The Brit establishment has never forgiven the Jews from driving them out of The mandate. Like the Arabs they cannot abide the fact that they were defeated by Jews.you don't see the same animosity from the foreign office directed towards India despite having been humiliated there and leaving in shame.
Israel will do figure out how to homegrow whatever tech the Brits are withholding same as they did after the French embargo after 67.

It's not just Britain:


U.S. halts missile transfer requested by Israel

Wall Street Journal reports supply of Hellfire missiles canceled, U.S. officials demanding to review Israeli requests on individual basis.

Another factor in why 20th Century British men favored Arab Muslims over Jews was that they had developed "certain habits" while in public school and lots of Arab men were available for gay sex but very few Jews. Besides, those serious, nation-building Jews in their plain work shirts and pants seemed much less romantic than Arabs in their flowing robes.

Britain has always been anti-Semitic. They Palestinians just give them an excuse to express it openly.

The ADL's 2014 global antisemitism study (google it) shows that Britain is the 6th LEAST anti-Semitic country on the planet. America the 7th. So America is more anti-Semitic than the UK and Britain less than the US.

I assume you will be admitting Americans are an anti-jewish people then?.

Anti-Semitism may have sadly risen in the UK, but its still at a very low level. The UK is not and has never been an anti-Semitic nation, despite what people here believe. In fact, the rates of recorded anti-Semitism in the UK and US are the same. In fact, some years the US has been ‘more antisemitic’ than the UK, and yet no sane person thinks the US is remotely anti-Semitic.....

Frankly a lot of the stories I read here (like UK teachers ‘not teaching the Holocaust’, which is a legal requirement btw) are rubbish from rightwing US radio or blogs playing on the average American’s ideas and myths of Britain.

In fact, from the 19th C through the fascist 30s to today, the British people have relegated it to the extreme. They have en masse rejected those, from Oswald Mosley to the BNP, who espouse it.

In fact as I have pointed out many times, its the opposite. Jewishness is celebrated and a major part of British life and culture.

If there is a rise, I would greatly attribute it to UK Muslim extremists and to some pro-Palestine groups.

But as I said, despite a sad rise, anti-Semitism is very low in the UK, so people need to reign in the criticism and the hysteria.

No, anti-Semitism is NOT the UK’s true colours. Scotland, NI and Wales have never had any anti-Semitism, and England was and remains the least anti-Semitic major nation in Europe.

In fact Britain has always REJECTED anti-Semitism.

The Jewish population of Great Britain lives happily without any major anti-semitism. Judaism is openly celebrated as a long standing and vibrant part of British culture. British TV ran Jewish documentaries across all five of its network channels last year.

Did America?.

British Jewish entertainers, writers, politicians and businesspeople openly celebrate their Jewishness. The London East End Jew, with his sharp wit and mouth is as well loved and known a cultural icon as the Glaswegian or the Cockney.

The current British Prime Minister is part Jewish. As is the deputy PM. As is the leader of the opposition party(Labour). So you have Jewish-descended people in the three most important political positions in the UK.

Are Obama, Biden and Romney Jewish?......

Your comments about Britain are simply obnoxious. They are a disgusting slander on the vast, vast majority of the British people. Who are no more antisemitic than their American cousins.

The UK is the nation that rejected the naked antisemitism of the 1930’s Fascists, and continues to reject the antisemitism of the BNP and other fringe neo-nazi parties and groups. The nation that stood alone against Hitler, while America and others stood by. And the nation that liberated Belsen and saved Jewish lives.

To suggest that the British people are antisemitic OR that the jews of Britain are victims of mass cultural or physical antisemitism is a downright and disgusting lie.

Just a recent fact, people:

The ADL's 2014 global antsemitism study puts Britain as the 6th LEAST anti-Semitic country on the planet. America the 7th.

So the UK is LESS anti-Semitic than America.

And yet the Brits I meet tend to be anti-Semitic. Maybe the ADL's study is not accurate. Or maybe it needs to look carefully at which segments of the population are anti-Semitic.

From the data in the comments, it appears Cameron is throwing the Left
a bone. Does that idiom translate into Brit-Speak ? >:)

The UK is still supplying Israel with military weapons and equipment (none which will be used in Gaza ironically), as confirmed two nights ago by Sky News and the BBC and other major British media.

The UK govt has also again reaffirmed its public support for Israel this week, and that Israel has ‘a legitimate right to self-defence’.

All Western European countries now have more Muslims than Jews and therefore the leadership is anti Israel. We can hope the Poles, Czechs etc. aren't stupid enough to let in any more Muslims.
