Sir Gerald Bernard Kaufman, Labour MP for Manchester, accused Israel of fabricating the Arab stabbing attacks, and says the Conservative government is only too happy to indulge this, as long as they keep getting “Jewish money.” Is it 1933 revisited? Somewhat, except that Sir Gerald was born in Leeds to Louis and Jane Kaufman, both of them Polish Jews. MP Kaufman, who is still a member of the Jewish Labor Movement, a.k.a. Poalei Zion, has become over the past decades an enemy of Israel, calling for economic sanctions and an arms ban against Israel, referring to Israel as a “pariah state,” and to its leaders as “war criminals.”
In Kaufman’s world, the Conservative party, which delivered a stunning blow to his party a few months ago, is “not interested in the fact that Palestinians are living a repressed life, and are liable to be shot at any time. In the last few days alone the Israelis have murdered 52 Palestinians and nobody pays attention and this government doesn’t care,” The Jewish Chronicle reported.
It doesn’t help matters that the 85-year-old Kaufman, who has served in parliament since 1970, has gained the post of Father of the House of Commons, a title that is by tradition bestowed on the senior Member of the House of Commons who has the longest unbroken service. And so, in his honored capacity, he has the right to speak up, often, and, should he choose to, in a vile manner.
Speaking at a Palestine Return Center event in Parliament on Tuesday—did you know they had those?—Sir Gerald explained the reason the British government had become more pro-Israel in recent years: “It’s Jewish money, Jewish donations to the Conservative Party – as in the general election in May – support from the Jewish Chronicle, all of those things, bias the Conservatives.”
There could be other reasons why Jewish Ed Miliband’s Labor has lost 26 seats last May, while David Cameron’s Conservatives walked away with an extra 28 seats. It’s probably the same reason Labor will continue to lose, possibly become a third-tier party next time, with Marxist Jeremy Corbyn at the helm — the British voters are tired of the leftist rhetoric, and the only voters still going for Labor in big chunks are Muslims — with their Muslim money.
Not on Sir Gerald’s planet, where the Jews pile their Jewish money on Conservative politicians’ desks, and then they are free to, as he stated it so eloquently, execute harmless Palestinians:
“The majority of the “attempted stabbing” incidents are based on false claims. They are executing Palestinians on the streets and then they fabricate the stabbing story. Several videos came out after some of these incidents that clearly show those Palestinians killed posing no harm at all but they got shot anyway and some were executed after they were injured on the ground. It is enough for an Israeli to scream terrorist and if you look like an Arab you will be shot dead on the spot. I wanted to say they shoot and then ask questions, but the truth is they shoot and then they fabricate a stabbing story. No questions asked. More than half the stabbing claims were definitely fabricated. The other half, some were true, the others there was no way to tell since they executed Palestinians and no one asked questions. Not only that, they got the point of executing Arab looking people and in the past few days they killed 2 Jewish Israelis and an Eritrean just because they looked Arab. They fabricated a stabbing story to justify the killings before they found out they were not Palestinians.” (H/T David Collier)
This is the point where one imagines Sir Gerald had to take a break to wipe the froth from his lips.
