Zionist Benn’s Grab For Power 191

Hilary Benn is very serious about his power grab and has been laying the ground for it very carefully. On 18 November BICOM – the British Israeli Communications and Research Centre – published this:

Shadow Foreign Secretary Hilary Benn told a Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) lunch yesterday that relations with Israel must be based on cooperation and rejected attempts to isolate the country.

Addressing senior party figures in Westminster, Benn praised Israel for its “progressive spirit, vibrant democracy, strong welfare state, thriving free press and independent judiciary.” He also called Israel “an economic giant, a high-tech centre, second only to the United States. A land of innovation and entrepreneurship, venture capital and graduates, private and public enterprise.”

Consequently, said Benn, “Our future relations must be built on cooperation and engagement, not isolation of Israel. We must take on those who seek to delegitimise the state of Israel or question its right to exist.”

It is worth reading the next article BICOM published. Brigadier General Michael Herzog, head of strategy for the Israeli defence Force, sets out a strategy for Israeli interests in Syria which dovetails precisely with what Benn and Cameron were pushing in the Commons. Note that Herzog says an overall diplomatic solution is not realistic and rather de facto partitioning of Syria suits Israel’s interests. Therefore there should be no waiting for diplomatic progress before western military action.

With his abandonment of any pretended concern for the slow and agonising genocide of the Palestinians, and his strident support for Trident, Benn is embracing the Israeli establishment and the British military and political establishment. In return, the Tories roared his speech to the rafters, while the media, and especially the Genie Energy linked media, are boosting him to the Labour leadership.

The United Kingdom has, temporarily, an opposition leadership which is not controlled, Zionist, neo-con and in the pocket of the arms industry. Benn has positioned himself very carefully to offer himself as the vehicle for the entire establishment to move to correct this aberration.

    Look to the ones in Labour who voted No, when they really wanted a Yes and knew the Tory majority was unassailable anyhow, in the great parliamentary vaudeville act of 2015, with an eye to duping another generation in the future with their phony anti-war credentials.

    I’m being moderated too and not for the first time lately. I put up a link ref Benn’s Register of Interests @ 8.19pm. It is still being held. Perhaps I should take the hint that my contributions are no longer to be accepted or wanted.

    Hieroglyph, I think Benn Jnr was intentionally committing political suicide. He’ll never be leader, he’s on his way out, he hopes his performance yesterday will earn him a gentle fall from grace. Something is seriously amiss there, it’ll all come out I’m sure.

    But Kuenssberg never told us that, Craig, so it can’t be happening !!

    “Well, I mean, it’s these kinds of overseas spectaculars that the BBC do so very well…”

    Meanwhile, Russia digs in in Western Syria, while paying nice with the ‘come on board, chaps.’
    If there’s one thing Russia knows how to do it is defend. Syria ain’t the motherland but it’s clearly a red line. Risk? Nah. M.A.D. mate. Tried and tested.

    But yes…ISIS. Terrible fellahs. Swimming in oil. Saudi on its hols.

    Who buys the oil? Who transports it?

    Who gives a fuck? Not Kuennsberg and her ilk – that’s for sure !

    Move along there. Hilary Benn. Football. Precision strikes.

    Night night, sleep tight.

    You’re making the mistake of trying to break this down to a left/right thing – both sides are controlled in this criminal dialectic remember.

    Zionism, which is a creation of and funded by the House of Rothchild funds both ‘sides’ – the extreme neo cons as well as their purpoted enemy, the Jihadist murdering scumbags who, despite Israel supposedly being their arch enemy, have never once attacked Israel.

    Far left communist extremists are also bought and paid for and part of their useful dupes basket

    No refugees are allowed into Israel either

    Never underestimate the power of blackmail over politicians. Especially when the stick is accompanied by a carrot.

    (I recently learned from a German book I was reading that the German equivalent of “carrot and stick” is “Zuckerbrot [a kind of sweet for which I have not been able to find the English equivalent] und Peitsche [whip]”.)

  • Aidworker1

    In this blog I know why we have attracted Hasbara.

    It’s because Craig and some posters like Mary post the truth.

    Craig – you’re blog is becoming very important.

    “That is the Israel Odid Yinon plan”

    Indeed it is, Israel seem to have got their way, again. The inter faith hatred is such how can that country ever reunite? I just can’t see it happening. I just hope Assad and the Kurds get some more land if it is to be divided up in the end. Worst case would be an overall Sunni victory which would probably result in a true holocaust for the losers, a much worse disaster then it already is.

    I know my 9:24 is low even by the standards of the blogosphere (I can’t believe I used such a word), and I wouldn’t have used it against his father who I liked (on the basis of mostly negative media exposure only, and his own words, speeches and diaries) and would have and did find its use by others distasteful and cruel, but Tony Benn didn’t really have that killer instinct to reach for the top, and would never have been able to enact the changes he advocated, given vested interests, but this hesitancy and caution, his meekness, has corrected itself in the next generation. Genius and madness co-exist in one.

  • lysias

    Кнут [knout] и пряник [gingerbread].

    I was wondering if “gingerbread” was what “Zuckerbrot” meant. But “gingerbread’ in German is “Pfefferkuchen”.

    Saudi Arabia’s war in Yemen is great news for al Qaeda

    Neither the Saudi-led coalition nor the Houthi Shiite rebels are winning the war in Yemen. Who is? Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). Yes, the same terrorist group that senior U.S. officials once listed as the “most dangerous” threat to domestic and international American interests. As a U.S.-led coalition of 65 nations degrades the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) across nine lines of effort, the war in Yemen continues to strain the resources of various Arab air forces, with some Gulf states temporarily withdrawing from counter-ISIS sorties in order to support the war in Yemen. The results have not been in Saudi Arabia’s favor; Yemeni civilian casualties are high, coalition troops continue to be attacked by advanced weaponry, and the fragile state in the Arabian Peninsula continues to plunge into a desolate chaos.

    Pray tell, anon1, has Saudi got another 50 terrorist to behead?

    The Oldham by-election today is a crucial part of what’s occurring on the wider world stage. I know that it probably sounds bizarre that a town in the north of England now has geo-political implications. It’s important because this is how the neo-cons are going to dispose of Corbyn.

    I can’t find a live stream of the Oldham by-election, or any kind of unbiased coverage of it, so the best I can do is the Guadian’s live blog…


    Labour don’t need to lose this seat for a coup d’etat against Corbyn. The neo-con plotters just need a much reduced majority.

    “I put up a link ref Benn’s Register of Interests @ 8.19pm. It is still being held. “

    It looks like it’s there to me. What makes you think it’s being held?

    Anyway, mods – SOB’s though they doubtless are – won’t be constantly monitoring everything. It takes them a while to notice messages are in the spam queue or whatever.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if this blog is under a fair bit of DOS attack, considering how much slower than usual it is. A false false positives on the spam filter isn’t surprising.

    But if they could avoid deleting so many of my posts, I would be most obliged. Including this one.

    Anon1: “Many of us are outraged, Glenn. Many of us are disenfranchised. But we do not blow ourselves up in public places.

    That was pretty feeble, even by your standards.

    Give it another go. I asked – you will recall – what you thought about our own efforts at radicalising of these nutcases, on a systematic, widespread and entirely deliberate basis.

    Now without weaseling around any further, what do you say? Or is your dancing around just because you can’t bring yourself to admit the truth?

    German Wikipedia’s description of how Zuckerbrot is produced doesn’t sound like sugar bread:

    Bei der Herstellung von Zucker aus Zuckerrohr wird die Zuckerlösung (ausgepresstes Zuckerrohr) durch Erhitzen “eingekocht”. Im Topf ganz unten entwickelt sich die größte Hitze, was dazu führt, dass der Zucker karamellisiert. Diesen karamellisierten Zuckerklumpen nennt man Zuckerbrot. Dieses Zuckerbrot wurde oft den Sklaven (als Belohnung) gegeben, die die Arbeiten in der Zuckerfabrik erledigen mussten. Die Sklaven wurden also mit Zuckerbrot belohnt und mit der Peitsche bestraft.

    Glenn, so a handful of “books” are behind this whole game/ It’s laughable!

    We really are a Type Zero Global ‘Civilisation”

    To my mind, Hilary Benn is to Tony Benn (whom I still fondly think of as “Viscount Stansgate”) rather as Martin Amis is to Kingsley Amis.

    In each case the father was an original: flawed, in some ways unadmirable, but with huge strengths. And in each case the son has tried hard, but utterly failed to get into even the next class but one below. It’s more mathemtics than biology: simple regression to the mean.

    RobG – I live in Oldham, thankfully the much nicer part. I think labour will keep the seat due prominently to the high asian population (wont vote for UKIP who are likely to be 2nd). Also Jim Mcmahon is generally highly regarded for his work within the council. That being said, i believe the majority will be very small. Low turnout and i think the fact labour opposed airstrikes may be seen negatively here…..

  • Mark Golding

    RobG 3 Dec, 2015 – 7:30 pm – Putin delivered a well reasoned speech unlike the fabrication from Mr Benn, woven with rhetoric, traditional assertive political DNA and timed too boot for effect.

    Plainly Benn’s speech or any voice cannot be a triumph or a celebration until the final outcome is known. It can only be so in the minds of the collaborators and betrayers.

    The facts known and unknown will eventually speak for themselves, and if, as enough well-informed people expect, the campaign is proved bootless and disastrous, Benn’s grandiose bluster will be debunked.

    History will judge him as many serious historians already judge him, as wrong, as misled, as foolhardy, as self aggrandising and curiously disconnected from his origin.

    Then I hope you will be a bit suspicious if Labour lose in Oldham West, or have a much reduced majority.

    Hieroglyph ‘Morality is a tricksy beast’

    Yes and even if we make the assumption that MPs, for example have the capacity for logical reasoning, when operating within a system where none of the propositions under consideration are TRUE in other words an impossible world…. THE nonsensical world created by themselves and the media, then only logical inconsistency of propositions and moral rule inconsistency apply.
