Saw this over at Pamela Geller’s site (Atlas Shrugs) as a combined post and was completely floored…….
Here’s the two stories from the original links………
This first bit is enough over the top to be absolutely real.
Just as scary though, the second piece is true.
The eminent historian Andrew Roberts has said that the British government had a de facto ban in place on state visits by Queen Elizabeth II to Israel. “The true reason of course, is that the FO [Foreign Office] has a ban on official royal visits to Israel, which is even more powerful for its being unwritten and unacknowledged. As an act of delegitimization of Israel, this effective boycott is quite as serious as other similar acts, such as the academic boycott, and is the direct fault of the FO Arabists.
Senior officials in Israel confirmed reports on Monday that a British court issued an arrest warrant against opposition chairwoman Tzipi Livni for her role in orchestrating Israel’s military offensive against Hamas in the Gaza Strip nearly a year ago.
The request for the warrant was submitted by a pro-Palestinian organization.
My reply to both stories: “Nuts !”
I view the first item with The Queen as a personal affront, as my Dad’s entire family is from The UK…. Kent to be precise. Jewish, all of us. Family traced back to at minimum, right around 1530.
Regarding the Foreign Office and the rest of the UK government, it is well known that aside from the genuine lefty-loons, there are radical Muslims in place as elected officials and worse yet, appointed and hired bureaucrats. On our own shores, we can easily see examples of appointed and hired radicals here starting to “nudge” things, eh ? Imagine if they had a peace-loving religious slant as well. My word, that would be quite dangerous….. It could even lead to some future POTUS bowing in deference to a Saudi Arabian ruler……… oh….. bad example.
I’ll stop now.
