If one needed anymore proof that anti-Semitism is alive and well in England, and that there is a substantial pro-Arab lobby in the British Isles, then the comments on the Channel 4 website about an upcoming "expose" on the 'Israel lobby' prove it.
"Despite wielding great influence among the highest realms of British politics and media, little is known about the individuals and groups which collectively are known as the pro-Israel lobby.
Political commentator Peter Oborne sets out to establish who they are, how they are funded, how they work and what influence they have, from the key groups to the wealthy individuals who help bankroll the lobbying."
Ah yes, secretive, influential, and bankrolled. Where have we heard this before?
One might think that he's smoking crack, given the singular INEFFECTIVENESS of any pro-Israel lobbying, or any other pro-Israel or even philo-Semitism in Britain.
Most of the virulent English-language Jew-hatred in the world today originates in Britain, and it will be recalled that Britain has far less than even Holland or France evinced any affection or support for the Jewish state.
How remarkable that anyone thinks that there is ANY pro-Israeli voice heard in Whitehall.
"Oborne examines how the lobby operates from within parliament and the tactics it employs behind the scenes when engaging with print and broadcast media."
Tactics it employs behind the scenes? Mister Oborne, are you going to show that you are a talented writer of fiction in addition to being a reporter?
How often have British officials cozied up to Arabs, mister Oborne? Too many times to count? Have you considered a report on the inordinate influence of the Camel Corps in the Foreign Office, and the relationship between Britain's predominantly left-wing intelligentsia and certain foreign entities?
How about the strange overlap between far-right Jew-hatred and far-left Jew-hatred?
Predictably, the program is being promoted on the internet message boards of the British National party and various neo-Nazi websites.
