This week there was a landmark documentary, “Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby,” on Channel 4. The same outlet that offered Iran’s Holocaust-denying president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, an uninterrupted, seven-minute propaganda slot on Christmas Day last year.

Hitler saw a huge Jewish conspracy. Now the British media has taken over Hitlers job.

Since the end of Israel’s Gaza operation earlier this year, the British government has imposed a partial arms embargo on Israel and failed to vote against the Goldstone report in the UN.

The charities War on Want and Amnesty International UK have both promoted a book by the anti-Israeli firebrand Ben White, tellingly called Israeli Apartheid: A Beginner’s Guide.

The Trades Union Congress at its annual conference has called for boycotts of Israeli products as well as a total arms embargo. In the media, the Guardian newspaper has stepped up its already obsessive campaign against the Jewish state.

Readers may be surprised to learn, therefore, that the British media and political establishment is apparently cowering under the sway of a secretive cabal of Zionist lobbyists who have all but extinguished critical opinions of Israel from the public domain.

Such charges have been aired to mass critical acclaim this week in a landmark documentary, “Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby,” on Channel 4 – the same outlet that offered Iran’s Holocaust-denying president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, an uninterrupted, seven-minute propaganda slot on Christmas Day last year.
