Time to register UK’s ‘Friends Of Israel’ as lobbyists for a foreign power

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

“Why do we get dragged into these illegal and inhuman expeditions to devastate countries that are no threat to us? Because a team of Israel-firsters in our midst think it’s smart to promote the ambitions of a foreign power at the expense of our own national interest and everyone else’s… The three main political parties in the UK each have a ‘Friends of Israel’ group to ensure pro-Israel members are embedded at all levels in the British political establishment and at the very heart of government, no matter who is in power.”

The Pope fails to properly identify the Church’s enemies

Sunday, January 22nd, 2012

When the Pope speaks of “…a radical secularism which finds increasing expression in the political and cultural spheres”, “certain attempts being made to limit that most cherished of American freedoms, the freedom of religion”, and of “…powerful new cultural currents… not only directly opposed to core moral teachings of the Judeo-Christian tradition, but increasingly hostile to Christianity”, I find myself wondering why he does not name those forces.

Friday, January 20th, 2012

Jews only: Israel the “Bunker State”
