British Jewish organizations are furious over Ken Livingstone for calling British Education Secretary, Michael Gove, “an Islamophobe“. Former London Mayor and current mayrol candidate, Ken Livingstone, in a recent exclusive interview he gave to Sophie Hobson of , ‘London Loves Business’, called Gove “a fervent Zionist” and “Islamophobe”.
“The people like Michael Gove who are fervent Zionists and Boris Johnson, they wanted to isolate Al-Qaradawi because he’s a critic of Israel. And they ignored the fact he strongly urges Muslims not to launch attacks here in Britain,” Ken told Hobson.
London Mayor Boris Johnson (a former Conservative MP), has both Muslim and Jewish ancestry, (New Statesman, March 27, 2008). He is related to Edward Sieff, the former chairman of Marks & Spencer from mother side and to Osman Ali aka Wilfred Johson, a Turk Muslim, from father side. In 2004, it was reported that Boris Johnson had a four years extramarital affair with Petronella Wyatt, The Spectator‘s New York correspondent.
On September 22, 2011 – John Pilger, renowned British investigating journalist wrote: “The Westfield Stratford centre, backed by a former Israel commando (Frank Lowy, member of Jewish terrorist militia Haganah) and touted as the future face of London by the likes of Boris Johnson, makes a mockery of the East End’s history of productive work“.
Michael Gove is a member of British Friends of Israel and a welknown supporter of Jewish interests and Israel. Michael Grove is not only Islamophobe but also suffers with ‘Iranphobia‘. On January 25, 2010 in an Op-Ed in UK daily The Telegraph he repeated Israeli Hasbara Memri’s lies about Iran’s President Ahmadinejad saying “Israel to be wiped off the map“. In fact Dr. Ahmadinejad, in his speech in Farsi, had quoted Imam Khomeini, who said of the Zionist regime occupying Palestine that he wished for them “to be erased from the pages of history“.
Michael Gove also openly lent support to Board of Deputies of British Jews (BOD) and other Israel campaigners to stop local and foreign Muslim scholars to challenge Western and Israeli policies in the Muslim world in public. He even campaigned to stop British Jewish citizen, Gilad Atzmon, to perform in Bradford this week.
Gove in his book ‘Celsius 7/7′ has raised the bogey of ‘Islamic terrorism’. Interestingly, Tony Farrell, the former principal intelligence analyst for South Yorkshire Police, who was dismissed for claiming that both 7/7 London bombing and 9/11 were false flag operations. Watch Tony’s interview below.
As far as Ken Livingstone is concerned, he did have a history of being an ‘anti-Semite’. In addition to playing host to Sheikh Qaradawi, Ken also appeared on the dreaded Iranian Press TV. In September 2009, Ken Livingstone had the nerves to interview Hamas leader Khaled Meshal, living in Damascus. Reporting the interview in British New Statesman (September 19, 2009) – Ken wrote: “In the Middle East, peace can only be achieved through discussion between the elected representatives of both the Israelis and the Palestinians – and that means Hamas, which won a big majority in the last Palestinian parliamentary election, as well as Fatah“. Now, any Zionist with his head at the right place, will tell you that making such statesment – is 101% anti-Semitism.
However, to the ‘self-denial’ Zionist thugs, even if the British government conspires with a foreign country (Israel) to attack Muslim countries like Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Lebaon, Syria, Iran and Pakistan – which pose not threat to Britain – the British government leaders cannot be labeled as ‘Zionists’.
