Recently, three members of British Labor Party, headed by Jewish Ed Miliband, have come under knife of the ruling ‘Conservative Friends of Israel’ government of Prime Minister David Cameron.
Last month, Labour MP Paul Flynn had accused British Jewish ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, of being more loyal to Israel than Britain. “He has divided loyalties because he has proclaimed himself to be a Zionist“.
Matthew Gould in his official position conspired with Liam Fox and Adam Werritty to prepare ground for British attack on Iran. British daily The Independent claimed on January 8, 2012 that Werritty even met Miliband. On Saturday, Britain announced its plan to send its mightest warship HMS Daring to challenge Iran plans to conduct a new military drills in February under the name “The Great Prophet“. The drill is to show Iran’s capability to shut-down the Strait of Hormuz.
Early this month, Labour Party suspended it member, Shereef Abdallah, an Ed Miliband “lookalike” who previously worked as a volunteer at the office of Labour MP Glenda Jackson. Jewish Lobby had accused him of posting anti-Semitic and threatening statements on Twitter by calling ruling Tory party “anti-Islamic scums”. Neil Nerva, vice chair of the Jewish Labour Movement and the chair of Abdallah’s local Labour Party, praised the decision.
On Wednesday night, Diane Abbott, a Black British MP since 1980s, came close to losing her Shadow ministerial post over a tweet which read “White people love playing divide and rule. We should not play their game“. Ed Miliband demanded an immediate apology from Diane which she did.
I believe, Paul Flynn, Shereef Abdallah or Diane Abbott are not racists. However, as politicians, they should have known they were entering the Zionist-trap by making ‘politically wrong statements’.
Historically, Diane Abbott, was absolutely right. The European colonialists in the past are welknown for their policy of ‘divide and rule‘. The new-colonialists – the US, India and Israel are practicing the same old-fashioned ‘divide and rule’ policy in Iraq, Palestine, Afghanistan, Kashmir and the rest of the Muslim world.
Laurie Penny wrote in British daily New Statesman (January 6, 2012), under the heading ‘Divide and rule? Diane Abbott was right‘.
Racism, as the British National Party and its neo-fascist street imitators have been arguing for years, cuts both ways. In Barking and Dagenham in 2010, thousands of the borough’s residents mobilised to stop the British National Party gaining a foothold in Westminster. Goodhart’s lazy generalisations play right into the language of the modern far-right: that anti-racism is itself racist, and that any gains for black people must produce equal and opposite losses for white people, in a world in which privilege and prejudice can never be fought, only redistributed.
Rick Perry and Mitt Romney defend tax-breaks for the super-rich by telling blue-collar Americans that Democrats and union workers want to cut their paycheques: divide and rule. David Cameron denounces industrial action by encouraging low-paid private sector workers to complain that the pensions public sector workers are striking to protect are higher than theirs: divide and rule. David Willetts tells unemployed men that it’s all these selfish women in the workplace who have taken their jobs: divide and rule. Ed Miliband and Liam Byrne, not to mention Ian Duncan Smith, defend the dismantling of the welfare state by persuading the working class that those in receipt of housing benefit are scroungers scamming the system. Divide, dismiss – and rule.
