British PM Cameron Claims Jewish Ancestors

The Haredi Knesset Members who walked out of David Cameron’s speech didn’t miss very much.

British Prime Minister David Cameron told the Knesset in his first official visit to Israel that he has Jewish ancestors going back five generations and therefore feels “just some sense of connection” with Jews and Israel.

Being Jewish or being connected to Judaism, without having to actually believe in the Torah, is politically correct these days. Maybe the world is beginning to understand it really can’t do without the Tribe even if it can’t quite accept Jews as Jewish.

Cameron practiced up on his Hebrew enough so that he could end his speech by saying in the native tongue,” We are together.”

It was enough to melt the hearts of the most liberal bleeding hearts who still believe that Britain is the God’s best gift to Israel outside of the United States of America, and let’s bury in the sand the White Paper and dozens of other anti-Zionist treacheries by the Brits who did everything they could to make sure the Arabs would keep Israel from becoming a state..

“From the lexicon of my great, great grandfather Emile Levita, a Jewish man who came from Germany to Britain 150 years ago to the story of my forefather Elijah Levita who wrote what is thought to have been the first ever Yiddish novel,” Cameron said to the joy of the media and most Knesset members.

United Torah Judaism MKs were sparred the agony of listening to the hypocritical rah-rah Israel chatter and walked out on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Cameron, but for the wrong reasons. The coalition passed the universal draft bill into law Wednesday, and what better way to show disapproval than insulting a foreign dignitary?

They missed a boring parade of the right words in the right place at the right time. If his ancestors had left the Old Country with the first settlers, pardon the word, and had become Americans, he might as well as come out in support of God, the flag and apple pie.

Kosher slaughter:

“The Jewish community has been an absolute exemplar in integrating into British life in every way but integration doesn’t mean that you have to give up things that you hold very dear in your religion…. On my watch Shechita is safe in the UK.”

Score one for kosher slaughtering and score one for promoting assimilation so long as the Jews don’t ever forget they are Jews. But no worry; the non-Jews will remind them.

But of course that does not mean Cameron tolerates hate.

“We said no to Zakir Naik. We said no to Yusuf Qaradawi. And we said no to Dieudonne M’bala M’bala whose abhorrent displays of anti-Semitism have no place in a tolerant and inclusive Britain,” Cameron told the charring MKs.

Holocaust:

What can a foreign dignitary say about the Holocaust except “we’ll never forget”?

“As a father, I will never forget last year visiting the Holocaust Memorial in Berlin with my children and for the first time trying to explain to them quite what had happened. I want every child in Britain to learn about the Holocaust and to understand just how vital it is to fight discrimination and prejudice in our world,” he said.

Pro-Israel:

Every Western country is pro-Israel. J Street is pro-Israel. Iceland is pro-Israel. Everyone is pro-Israel, It is the “in” thing to say “let’s shrink your country to indefensible borders” and call it “pro-Israel.”

Let me say to you very clearly: with me, you have a British Prime Minister whose belief in Israel is unbreakable and whose commitment to Israel’s security will always be rock solid. Delegitimizing the state of Israel is wrong. It’s abhorrent. And together we will defeat it,” Cameron stated, using the broken-record term “unbreakable” that has become part of the U.S. Constitution.

  1. Great Britain, not great anymore. Michael Lerman, Ph.D., M.D.

  2. Tibor Tibi Andris Halmai says:

    Those would be comforting words if they hadn't come from the man who is islamizing the U.K.

  3. Nobody should expect a single man, who doubles as a politician, to solve any of the problems we currently face or will most definitely face in the future. And in their defense, the vast majority of the British people are supportive of Israel, but being supportive or sympathetic towards others isn't going to be much help when the future problems start appearing in waves. Until the world understands that your fight is their fight, you cannot expect much from them beyond kind words. Many are hoping that perhaps the Islamic world will finally understand your position, but as they hold their breath indefinitely, many more will draw their last while others, knowing your decency, will expect you to yield that which you hold most dear for peace in our time since they do not believe those against you have the capacity or understanding to yield. Whatever they understand, I'm afraid it will take far more than the works of prime ministers, presidents, and the tears of their constituents to fix the future. It will take the works of something greater to turn back the red tides driven by the crescent moon.

  4. Carlos Font says:

    I think I've said this before, perhaps somewhere else. PM Cameron spoke to the Knesset from the heart full knowing that he would be accused of hipocrisy. He is not a dictator and if England is slowly going Islamic, a lot of people are also responsible. It is worse here where Obama is aiding and abetting and lookng the other way. Blaming Cameron for England's past wrongs is like blaming Pres. Reagan for the slaghter of the Indians.
