British PM Cameron Claims Jewish Ancestors

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

Boycott:

“To those who do not share my ambition who want to boycott Israel I have a clear message. Britain opposes boycotts. Whether it’s trade unions campaigning for the exclusion of Israelis or universities trying to stifle academic exchange Israel’s place as a homeland for the Jewish people will never rest on hollow resolutions passed by amateur politicians.”

And what about goods from Judea and Samaria, Mr. Prime Minister?

Palestinian Authority:

Guess what? Cameron is for peace. He even is for a “lasting and secure peace.”

To his credit, he actually said  that cracking the 3,500-year-old Arab-Jewish love-hate relationship won’t stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb, and that is more than can be said for some American generals and Obama administration officials.

“There is no rule that says if Israel and the Palestinians make peace, Iran is somehow going to dismantle its despotic regime or abandon its nuclear intentions,” according to Cameron.

“That can only be done through sustained international pressure. I share your deep skepticism and great concern about Iran. I am not starry eyed about the new regime.”

Oh, really? Then how do talks with Iran and easing sanctions equal “sustained international pressure”?

“A nuclear armed Iran is a threat to the whole world – not just to Israel and with Israel and all our allies, Britain will ensure that is never allowed to happen,” he added.

Actually, it is Israel that will make sure it does not happen.

He also called for recognizing Israel as the “nation state of the Jewish people.” Neither he nor any other foreign leader understands that the only reason Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has made that demand is because he knows no good Muslim Arab would ever agree to such a horrid thing that would contradict the Islamic jihadist dream of making Israel part of a Pan-Islamic empire.

Cameron then delved into Jewish history, perhaps overwhelmed by stories of his great-great-grandfather.

“Later this week you will celebrate Purim,” he said. “You will recall the time when the Jewish people were under threat of extermination in ancient Persia. And you will experience a day of joy in memory of the way the Jewish people were saved and freedom was delivered.

“All of us here long for the day that the Jewish people can be free and safe in their homeland.

“I know the challenges in getting there are great. But far greater is the friendship I bring from Britain – and the strength of our collective resolve.

“So as I stand here with you and look to the future, my message to you today is simply this: we’ll be with you every step of the way.”

Sure. Just like Chamberlain.

  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.
