Craig Murray - Has the Elite’s Slavish pro-Israel Agenda Finally Gone Too Far?

From the Guardian:

The UK is to ban membership of or support for Hezbollah’s political wing, the home secretary has announced, as he accused the Lebanese Islamist movement of destabilising the Middle East. 
The decision was also welcomed by the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who said “antisemitism and hate crime have no place in our city”.
 The [U.K.] government said the organisation continued to amass weapons in contravention of UN security council resolutions, while its support for the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, had prolonged “the conflict and the regime’s brutal and violent repression of the Syrian people”.

Craig Murray

Hezbollah’s defeat of the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in the July war of 2006 was heroic and an essential redress to the Middle East power balance. I supported Hezbollah’s entirely defensive action then and I continue to applaud it now. That, beyond any shadow of a doubt, makes me guilty ofn the criminal offence of “glorifying terrorism”, now that Sajid Javid has proscribed Hezbollah as a terrorist organisation. I am unrepentant and look forward to the prosecution.
A large majority of the public, and certainly almost everyone who remembers that 2006 invasion, would revolt from my being prosecuted on those grounds. The very absurdity of it is a sure measure that Sajid Javid has simply gone too far in naming Hezbollah – the legitimate political party representing in parliament the majority rural population in Southern Lebanon – as a terrorist organisation.
Together with the largely manufactured “Corbyn anti-semitism” row, Javid’s move is aimed at achieving in the UK the delegitimisation of political opposition to Israeli aggression and absorption of the occupied territories and the Golan Heights, in the way that has been achieved in the USA. However, there is a much better educated population in the UK and a great deal of popular awareness of decades of Israeli crimes. In fact, the continuing resilience of the Labour vote shows that at least over a third of the British population does not buy the “anti-semitism” tag applied to all those concerned at the continued plight of the Palestinians.
Hezbollah has never been implicated in any terrorist attack on the UK. Its military posture in Southern Lebanon vis a vis Israel is entirely defensive; it evolved as a military force in reaction to wave after wave of Israeli invasion of Lebanon, in which the Israeli “Defence” Force casually decimated Shia communities en route to attacking Palestinian refugee camps. Hezbollah has never invaded Israel. Hezbollas played an effective and laudable role in assisting the defeat of Isis and their Jihadist allies in Syria.
Oh look, I just “glorified terrorism” again.

Hezbollah also kicked the Israelis out of Lebanon in May 2000 after an 18-year Jewish occupation. The Jews will never forgive Hezbollah for this, nor for Israel’s humiliating defeat by Hezbollah in 2006. The crushing defeat was not limited to land. On 14 July 2006, a Hezbollah missile severely damaged an Israeli warship (the INS Hanit) and killed four Israeli sailors. The ship barely remained afloat, and had to be towed back to its port at Ashdod. Within a month the Jews ceased their attack on Lebanon, and withdrew in shame. They have vowed revenge ever since, and every 18 months or so they vent their impotent wrath on the Gaza Death Camp.

The military wing of Hezbollah has been outlawed in the UK since 2008. Yesterday (25 Feb 2019) the fanatically pro-Israel Home Secretary Sajid Javid outlawed the political wing, which means that half of Lebanon’s government is illegal in the UK. Anyone speaking in favor of Lebanon's government, or found to have a Hezbollah flag in his flat, will now be subject to 10 years’ imprisonment.

Venezuela may be a factor in this. John Bolton, Mike Pompeo, Eliot Abrams, and Israel claim that Hezbollah infests Venezuela, and is planning to invade the USA.

Sajid Javid is Pakistani, vehemently anti-Brexit, anti-Maduro, and pro LGBTQXYZ. He is the strongest champion of Jews in Teresa May’s entire cabinet.

Craig Murray says the attack on Jeremy Corbyn as “anti-Semitic” is “largely manufactured.”


It is 100% manufactured. An anti-Semite is not someone who hates Jews. It is anyone hated by Jews. Thus 99.9% of the entire world is “anti-Semitic.”
