Will a Radical Lifelong Zionist Replace Tony Blair?

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

The People of Great Britain should be alert to the fact that an ultra-Zionist may become your next Prime Minister. Many believe that Gordon Brown is slated to replace Blair. As recently as 25 April 2007, Brown stated before the Board of Deputies of British Jews, inter alia,

"First, let me tell you how I came to become so close to the Jewish community. I have told some of you before how my upbringing in a small town of Kirkcaldy, Fife brought me in contact from my earliest days, I remember, with the people of Israel. It was because my Father — a Church of Scotland Minister — chaired the church Israel committee, and used to travel at least twice a year to Israel. I grew up from the 1950’s in Scotland surrounded by stories, books and, if you remember back to that time, I was shown on old projector slides all the great sites of Israel And I grew up impressed and motivated by the struggles the sacrifices and, yes, the great achievement of the ancient dream of the Jewish nation becoming reality in the modern state of Israel. [***] That conviction is why I remain a life-long friend and supporter of Israel. [***] But I speak on behalf of the British Government, and when Tony Blair and I say Israel will always have our support, we mean it. Britain will be a true and constant friend — in good times and bad and we will never compromise our relationship to political expediency."The Rt Hon Gordon Brown MP, speaking at the President's Dinner of the Board of Deputies of British Jews on 25 April 2007, The Board of Deputies of British Jews,\stories\2007-04-30gb.jsp.

Clearly, it is not in Great Britain's best interest to have such an ardent Zionist as Prime Minister. Brown openly avows undying support for a nation which is dragging down the good name and economy of the UK. Brown inextricably ties the UK to Israel, which nation last summer launched an unprovoked, illegal, aggressive and barbaric attack on Lebanon. Tzipi Livni is the daughter of Eitan Livni, who was an Irgun member, and who has been associated with the Irgun King David Hotel bombing attack on the British.

One cannot have absolute loyalty to two nations. Loyalty to Israel is demonstrably loyalty to a racist, apartheid regime, which was founded on terrorism directed at, among others, the British, and which aggressively attacks its neighboring countries.
