Towards a more sensible foreign policy…


by Stuart Littlewood

Some polls are showing Jeremy Corbyn forging ahead in the Labour Party leadership race by as much as 20 points. The political Establishment is shaken and quite definitely stirred.

Jeremy Corbyn Left winger on track for victory

Dave Ward, general secretary of the 200,000-strong Communication Workers Union, is reported saying:

There is a virus within the Labour Party and Jeremy Corbyn is the antidote.

The grip of the Blairites and individuals like Peter Mandelson must now be loosened once and for all.

This has ruffled a good many feathers among Labour diehards.

Meanwhile, the four Labour leadership contenders recently attended a public meeting populated largely by members of the Jewish community and co-hosted by the Jewish Chronicle.

Andy Burnham, Yvette Cooper and Liz Kendall, in supercharged suck-up mode, expressed avid support for Israel, leaving Jeremy Corbyn as the only critic.

Andy Burnham

“I’ve always been a friend of Israel and the Jewish community – that will never change.” If he becomes Labour leader his first overseas trip will be to Israel. He’s opposed to the “spiteful” boycott movement. He praises Israel as a “democracy that has a long history of protecting minorities and promoting civil rights” and says the Balfour Declaration, which is coming up for its centenary, represented “an example of British values in action”. He wants centenary celebrations in every school to show how the UK “played a role in the establishment of a democracy in the region”.

Yvette Cooper

“It’s hugely important that Labour continues to be a friend of Israel.” She says Labour must oppose the “counterproductive” BDS [the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement]. As for the Balfour Declaration, its 100th anniversary must be celebrated to “mark the pioneering role Britain played in [promoting] the rights of Jewish people to a homeland”.

Liz Kendall

She pledges to “always be a friend of Israel” and says the recent resolution passed in the Commons to recognise the state of Palestine on 1967 borders was irresponsible. She feels BDS is an initiative to “delegitimise Israel” and she’ll fight it with “every fibre of [her] being”. She ‘s proud of the role played by the UK in the establishment of Israel and believes it is a country which “respects gay rights, has a free media, and possesses a strong tradition of social democracy”.

Jeremy Corbyn


Jeremy Corbyn, who has visited Israel, the West Bank and Gaza nine times, calls for “robust discussion” on Israel’s siege of Gaza, the Israeli settlements in the West Bank and the mistreatment of Palestinian child detainees in Israeli prisons. He says he’ll support an arms embargo on Israel and a ban on produce from West Bank settlements viewed as illegal under international law. As for the Balfour Declaration, it was “an extremely confused document which did not enjoy universal support in the cabinet of the time…”

Actually, the Balfour Declaration of 2 November 1917 was merely a letter to Lord Rothschild from Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour expressing sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations:

His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine….

There was no promise of a Jewish state.

Lord Sydenham – Who will heal the ‘Running sore in the East’ ?

Later, Lord Sydenham famously remarked in a debate in the House of Lords:

The harm done by dumping down an alien population upon an Arab country… may never be remedied… What we have done is, by concessions, not to the Jewish people but to a Zionist extreme section, to start a running sore in the East, and no one can tell how far that sore will extend.

Balfour was one of history’s greatest chumps.

The idea that his fatal blunder should be celebrated – in schools – is preposterous.

It should not even be mentioned without including a full history of the Holy Land since the mid-1800s.

Back to the meeting

The candidates were then asked whether it was appropriate for parliamentarians to host members of groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah. This was designed to embarrass Corbyn, who had referred to the resistance groups as “friends” when he hosted them in Parliament some years ago.

Burnham said that he would “sanction” any member hosting meetings that included Hamas and Hezbollah. “No MP in my Labour Party would do that.” However Burnham, in his haste to appease Israel, might find it hard to make such sanctions stick. Neither Hamas’s nor Hezbollah’s political wings are proscribed in the UK.

Corbyn defended his position by saying: “You don’t achieve progress by only talking to those who you agree with,” and that all parties must be engaged in the search for peace.

Critics in the Labour Party have slurred Jeremy Corbyn with claims that he’s not prime ministerial material and therefore not electable in a situation where winning power is all that matters. Others disagree. Labour must prove first itself an effective opposition if it is to win back public respect, as well as its own self-respect, and be considered fit for purpose. That is not likely to happen while the Blairite/Brownite rump continues to clog the upper echelons of the party. The unwelcome blockage includes stooges like Cooper and Burnham.

Corbyn is nothing like the Establishment-preferred smoothy from Eton and delinquent from the Bullingdon Club – the disconnected upper-class leadership formula that has driven Britain into deep debt and rendered it  unpopular throughout the world.

He’s an ordinary product of Adams Grammar School in Shropshire, North London Polytechnic and the excellent VSO (Volunteer Services Overseas). He’s astute and has a track record of honesty and openness, laced with a burning sense of justice. Therefore, he’s much more representative of the people and much more their “cuppa tea”. Furthermore, he’s a trusted parliamentarian of 32 years’ standing.

Many certainly can see Corbyn as prime minister – a very different and totally new style of prime minister, to be sure – with open-neck shirt, a cloth cap on occasion and sleeves rolled up ready for grass-roots action. At least he’s a man to look up to and identify with – and a man who is not tempted by the Israeli shekel.

If any of Corbyn’s opponents lands the leadership Labour will remain under the yoke of Zionist ambitions and enslaved by the gangster regime in Tel Aviv. It’ll be looking for any excuse to gang up in death-dealing raids into countries the US and Israel don’t like. And it’ll continue to provide a safe haven to Israel’s war criminals.

Make a difference

UK readers can help spoil the warmongers’ evil schemes and take a bold step down the path to peace. They can apply to become supporters of the Labour Party and qualify for a vote in the leadership election. But they must do it before 12 August.

  1. An unimpeded view from My Catbird Seat

    Harry Truman did not recognize “Israel” as “Jewish State” when he was pressured against his and his SecState’s judgment to recognize it and, to the best of my knowledge, which may be faulty, I know of no other who recognizes it as a “Jewish State, which by definition would be a racist state and therefore could not be a democracy!

    It is this kind of sense of exclusiveness which makes any race, religion, tribe, people, group or individual totally dislikeable.

    These people have created their myth of “the Chosen” and they have made the mistake of accepting it as a fact and a belief.

    As long as they adhere to this kind of arrogance they will never be accepted among the broader community of man.

    Peace with Israel and Israelis is an illusion, for even when not in open conflict, even when bound in a solid, sound and enduring “alliance” it is a one-way alliance in which Israel will subvert and destroy its allies and partners in any way it can in order to reduce them to eventual total submission.

    John F Kennedy knew this, his brother Robert knew it… they died for knowing it. Richard Nixon knew this! Harry Truman might have known it, but had not the moral courage to stand up to them; Lyndon Johnson, knew it, and submitted. William Clinton and wife Hillary know this, and submit; both of the Bush’s knew this and submitted. If Barack Obama does not know this, then he has something seriously wrong with him.

    And… the present majority of those who call themselves Zionists and Israelis are not even Israelites… they are pretenders and phonies from other tribes and other lesser civilized lands in the hinterlands of Middle Western Asia, barbarians who have kidnapped, absconded with and exploit a convenient name, myth and identity.

    A widely respected and prolific writer Terry Arnold, now in his 80’s wrote, and I quote:

    “Ever since voting for Harry Truman after World War II, I have been taken by the ever increasing gap between the powers of the President as a person and the realities of national issue management as a political process. The media typically either give presidents more credit for leeway in this arena or more criticism for lack of will /power than is deserved. Chavez, to be sure, has to deal with an old line elite and recent generation political upstarts, but comparatively speaking that elite and his political challengers are child’s play compared to the Washington oligarchy.

    “To be candid I personally thought that Obama was taking extreme risk by having so many known strong Israeli/Zionist supporters in his close in network, and I think he now knows that in Middle East policy terms that is a serious liability. I don’t suspect Jews of being unpatriotic, but I am certain that a strong alliance with Zionist interests is bad for America’s health. I think it very likely that he is having more trouble dealing successfully with the orders of political and personal/family blackmail the Zionists can mount against him than he is lacking either the character of the courage to undertake what we perceive as essential courses of action.

    “That pressure exists alongside powerful political interests in Washington who simply do not support a significant change in the direction of American foreign policy. Unhappily for Obama, a lot of those people are in the core leadership of his own party, and the US Congress is virtually a captive audience on this subject. He straddled the political boundaries with his cabinet appointments and that is not per se bad. However, he is entangled in a confluence of power broker interests (both democratic and republican) that will fight change tooth and nail, especially if any suggested change alters the American military power posture. By comparison, the President only has a pocket full of trader beads for trading around his other policy objectives.

    “One of my worries is that the presidency itself may be becoming a defunct institution.”

    A well-written opinion that is, which sounds more like an obituary than a laudatory apology for a failed politician and a plea for understanding and appreciation for the “good” he has done and the “changes” he has delivered, which of course there having been so few and of such relative insignificance when you consider the things he has not done, he can hardly elaborate on them. (Libya, Ukraine, Syria, Yemen, Palestine, Guantanamo, etc.)

    Indeed! He doesn’t stand a chance against a system as well organized and executed as this!

    And, perhaps it is an obituary….

    Terry, if it is not already defunct, it is not far off !

    This is the way it has always been. Did you not know?

    That does not make it right, better or even good, but that is the way it has always been.

    To see oursels as others see us!”
