Sir Gerald Kaufman: "Just as Lord Ashcroft owns most of the Conservative Party, right-wing Jewish millionaires own the rest"

This is the utterly astonishing assertion of Labour’s Sir Gerald Kauffman.

One might think it quite incredible that a Jew could be into such anti-Semitic conspiracy theories.

Or is it his ethnicity which permits him to get away with it?

According to The Jewish Chronicle, he and another Labour MP (Martin Linton) made their rather inflammatory comments at a meeting in Parliament held by the ‘Friends of Al-Aqsa’.

Has there been a meeting in Parliament for the ‘Friends of the Wailing Wall’?


Thought not.

What would be the consequences for a parliamentary candidate from any party who suggested: ‘Unite owns most of the Labour Party and left-wing Muslims own the rest’?

Mr Linton, MP for Battersea (and Chairman of ‘Labour Friends of Palestine’), said at the meeting: "There are long tentacles of Israel in this country who are funding election campaigns and putting money into the British political system for their own ends."

Does he think Unite are funding Labour’s election campaign for altruistic purposes?

He added: "You must consider over the next few weeks, when you make decisions about how you vote and how you advise constituents to vote, you must make them aware of the attempt by Israelis and by pro-Israelis to influence the election."

Does Mr Linton not realise that we live in a democracy, and that any ‘lobby group’ has the legal right to express their concerns, campaign for a candidate and put their money where they wish?

Or are Jews uniquely barred from this process?

According to the JC, Mr Linton initially denied making the ‘tentacles’ remark. Presented with the evidence, he apologised, professing complete ignorance of the anti-Semitic precedent for the image of a Jewish octopus stretching its tentacles around the world. He said he was drawing on the findings of a Channel 4 programme on political donations and lobbying in the Conservative Party.

Sir Gerald Kaufman has not apologised. Presumably, he stands by his comments.

Cranmer rather wishes the JC had not referred to these two as being ‘anti-Zionist’. The distinction which many draw between Zionism and Semitism muddies the waters and permits racists to crouch behind a complex veil of geo-political obfuscation.

The Board of Deputies of British Jews have asked the Labour Party to consider dismissing both candidates.

Perhaps if they had Tweeted their comments, they would have been.

Or is it permissible for a Jewish knight of the realm to warn voters about the insidious influence of the ‘Israel lobby’?

Board president Vivian Wineman said: "We note that Mr Linton has apologised but we are surprised that, as a seasoned politician, he was not aware of the anti-Semitic nature of his remarks. Gerald Kaufman's reference to ring-wing millionaires plays to traditional anti-Semitic stereotypes and is unacceptable. We are raising this with the Labour Party. We think it should consider their suitability as candidates."

The JC explains the shameful history of their comments:

One cover of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion portrayed octopus tentacles interwoven with the Star of David. A notorious cartoon of an octopus straddling the globe was also used in the Nazi newspaper Der Sturmer in the 1930s. It can also be seen in British antisemitic portrayals of the Rothschild banking family in the 19th century.

Danny Stone, director of the all-Party Parliamentary Group Against Antisemitism, said: "It is shameful to see members of Parliament using classic conspiracy theory language. Both the Labour Party and the Conservative Party have previously indicated to us their intentions to crack down on any and all racist language or behaviour – I hope we will see swift action taken."

Stuart Polak, director of the Conservative Friends of Israel, said: "These comments are as ignorant as they are preposterous. The MPs' records on the Israeli/Palestinian issues are one-sided and not balanced and therefore cannot remotely be taken seriously.''

Is it not ironic that, at a time when Labour criticise David Cameron for sitting beside ‘xenophobes’, ‘anti-Semites’ and ‘homophobes’ in their new European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) group in the European Parliament, that we find they have a few within their own ranks?

Neither candidate has been dismissed. All we have received is an official announcement from a Labour Party spokesman who distanced the party from the remarks. He said: "These alleged comments are not the view of the Labour Party."

One wonders why they didn’t simply put out such a statement in response to Stuart MacLennan's Tweets.

Could it be that Labour are more offended by a few generalised, derogatory comments about the elderly and John Bercow than they are by the colossal evil of anti-Semitism, anti-Zionism and anti-Israel prejudice?

I suppose I am one of the Jews these guys are talking about, I am unemployed, disabled and considered too old to work in IT any longer. I am, at the moment sitting in my (extended) family home in Jerusalem where the sirens have just gone off to remember the last Holocaust.

If the Jews, and the Israeli lobby are so powerful, then why is Israel about to be forced to give up land to terrorists? They must be exceedingly incompetant world hegemons.

Or are they are the victims of another world hegemon as they were in 1942.

A world hegemon who rules the BBC and the rest of the media to such a degree that propaganda goes unchallenged.

Part of anti-semitism is to expect different standards from Jews as from others. Under this definition, 'anti-zionism' must be compared to every other extant regime to make sure that it is not making a special demand on Israel. In my opinion it fails this test. Israel is a democracy, all Israelis, including Arab Israelis, have equality under Law.

As a Jew, I cannot go to many of the countries that are 'anti-zionist'.

So we see another 'final solution' to the 'Jewish Problem' in the making. Soften up with propaganda, round'em up, move'em out. So just where are we meant to go this time?

Ah but the ECR - Kaufman equation doesn't hold. The Labour party doesn't sit offically with fascists and cranks in Europe nulike the Tories. You (may or may not) have found one MP with unpalatable views to hold up against a large group in Europe fronted by a leader/party with a dodgy past. There are many racists in the Tory party, though I would refuse to call the Tory party racist as a body, even if most of its racism is disavowed now. Good try Archy, but i'm afraid a fail.

If he likes Al Aqsa so much, he could go there. Oh no, I forgot, he can't. He's a Jew.

He will see just how friendly the Al Aqsa Friends/Brigade/Matyrs will be, should he be stupid enough to carry on with his Stockholm Syndrome delusion.

When I was just about to enter my teens in 1958 I came to the conclusion that there was no God. Just like Father Christmas he had been explained away. I assumed then that by the time I reached the age I am now that religion would have withered on the vine and we would we talking about it only in the past sense.

And for a time throughout the 60’s that did seem to be the direction of travel. Our generation would change the world and sweep away the old order and the pointless, boring lives of our parent’s. Even the Cold war didn’t dampen our optimism.

My confidence was naive as here we are and we are still talking about it. The existence of the State of Israel has been one of the causes of global conflict since its creation and of course it would not have been created without religion. The “right” to this small area of land is still contested because of competing religious beliefs.

Israel and its friends will always play the anti-Semitism card whenever it sees political advantage. All your damned religions make special pleadings so personally I don’t care who gives money to political parties as long as it is transparent. All donors expect payback in some form that is the reality. As long as the electorate can see when influence has been sold and then vote accordingly, that as they say is polotics.

Your Grace

The Left-liberals are attempting to deny and therefore exclude Jewish people from lobbying political parties. Their real objective is to silence our first cousins: the Jewish people.

Once the process of silencing a people is complete then their vicious targeting begins.

Of course through the devices in the Lisbon Treaty, the federal authority, the EU is permitted and has conducted lobbying of parliament. There was no great outcry over that. My guess is that the Left-liberals are preparing right across the EU to silence Jewish communities so that they do not interfere with the EU’s plans for Israel: to undermine Israel and abandon him to his enemies.

We should also recall that a short time ago the European Monitoring centre on Racism and Xenophobia commissioned a report into anti-Semitism. The researchers found that the main cause of ant-Semitism in Europe was not skinheads and fascists but Muslim youth.

When the researchers were asked to revise their report and refused – the Centre revised it adding a conclusion in disaccord with its findings.

Jews are a racial group, Judaism is a religion. So whilst Karl Marx was a communist atheist, he was also a Jew.

I can make a choice to follow the Jewish 'Religion', I cannot change my Jewish ethnicity.

Islam is a religion, but Muslims can be of many races. Not all Arabs are Muslims, there are many Christian Arabs.

Genocide is therefore based on race not on religion.

Your Grace, the Catholics say " Give me a boy until he is five and I will show you the man". In the case of the US president, Barack Obama started his life when his mother was married to a Kenyan Muslim. When this gentlemen abandoned his white bride Obama's mother re-married an Indonesian Muslim, Lolo Soetoro, and settled outside Jakarta. History doesn't relate whether the late Mrs Soetoro converted to Islam. There is however no questioning that Obama spent his formative years as a Muslim child living in Muslim society.

Obama has been described as a Third World anthropologist who has brilliantly used white racial guilt in the US to leverage himself to power. Quite who he really thinks he is remains a mystery. Perhaps his refusal to visit Israel gives us a clue. If I were a Jew or an Israeli I would not trust a word Obama says, it would be too big a risk to do so.

Mr Graham Davis, I recently had lunch with a Catholic priest and you can hardly imagine the embarrassment of this very decent man at the disgraceful state of affairs in his Church. After a lifetime of ministry and now semi-retired he is almost ashamed to admit his vocation. I also have a cousin who is a Jesuit priest. I know enough about his life before he was ordained to be confident that he is by nature a skirt lifter rather than a shirt lifter and in no way a paedophile. There would be many like him in the Church. It only ever takes a few rotten apples to spoil the barrel, as the reputation of scout-masters will attest.

Having said that I do think that the Catholic church needs to drop its insistence on celibacy in the priesthood. It makes no sense at all to me and we Anglicans got over the idea quite quickly. Perhaps Henry VIII had a say in the matter.

Expecting men to repress their sexual desires in the name of Christ is patently a spectacular failure.

No no you cannot get away with that. Point me to accepted scientific evidence that Jews are a distinct ethnic group (not Nazi propaganda). You would like it to be so as it would support your territorial claims but just like us atheists Jews have no distinct racial group. You and your Abrahamic co-religionists rely on “holy” books to support your various spurious claims not science or reason.

Mr Davis, the claim that the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is one fueled purely by religion is contrived as misguided. It highlights a significant lack of historical understanding; one of which I would normally assume as man of your age was without.

Arguably without religion, the Jewish peoples would never have been moved from the Iudaea province by the Romans. But that merely opens an entirely worthless "what if" scenario.

Mr Graham Davis, I am not sure which Jewish territorial claim you refer to because you do not say. One thing is clear. In 1967, Israel was attacked by her three neighbours, Egypt, Syria and Jordan.

Without US or Western assistance, Israel defeated her attackers decisively in a remarkable feat of arms. Israel subsequently returned land won from Egypt but has retained land won from Jordan and Syria.

For the life of me I cannot see what is wrong with that. To make the point again, the Arabs started a war, they lost, and what they lost is the West Bank and Jerusalem. It is not obvious to me why Israel should apologise or otherwise defer to anybody as a consequence of Arab aggression in 1967.

I tend to largely agree with the sentiments expressed by Mr Davis that there is no such thing as a race of people that are exclusively Jews. The whole concept of what constitutes 'race' however is an irrelevance.

I would think that the human race ie Homosapiens are indeed a race of biped hominoids that have subsumed other races such as Neanderthals.

But the word today is more often than not uses in a socio-political sense and based on cultural lines, including language and historically traced territorial prominence.

So you pays your dollar and takes your choice.

There is ample evidence that culturally distinct tribal groups including Hebrews, Egyptians,Berbers, Philistines, Babylonians, Assyrians and many more have fought over disputed land and water rights in the body of land described by the Romans as Palestine. But there is no denying that the Jews as Hebrews, have a claim to a legitimacy of continual existence as a distinct group.

Mike c is partially correct I think, to infer that Mein Kampf has had a distinct influence on creating the Myth of a Jewish race. Hitler tried and failed to prove by measurement of facial features, eye colouring etc and even modern DNA techniques can no more identify with absolute certainty purity of a race within a'race'.

We are all variants of the one race - Homo-erectus.

The question is however, was Britain and France acting justly in establishing the State of Israel in 1920s. Technically, because of the culture of the time it was 'to the Victors - the spoils'.

The Ottomans and their territories were defeated along with the Germans and the rest is history.

I would say the the Jews do have a right to a State in their ancestoral and cultural homeland. The Arabs, by which I mean the Syrians, Jordanians, Lebanese, Algerians and so on have all broadly accepted the delineations of state-hood so why single out the Jews/Hebrews as unelligible?

This is where Islamic politics unites disparate nations to common cause based on the ramblings of a murderous mad Arab megalomaniac.

If they weren't united against the Jews they would find some other sacrificial victim to further the Islamisation of the entire world.

That someone like Kauffman should put the boot in if it suits his purpose, is hardly surpring. He is a self serving politician who thought it reasonable to claim over £8000 for a TV so nothing he says deserves considered respect - some set that must be.

The 'Palestinian Cause' is just another political football taken on board by the Left since it lost all 'Cause' and credibility with the demise of communism and loss of our national and European industrial based working class.

I am sure that everyone here is familiar with 20th Century Middle East history including the establishment of the State of Israel that has resulted in almost continuous conflict and in the last couple of decades has been the main engine of international terrorism. The competing claims made by each of the Abrahamic faiths are all spurious, based on nothing but ancient texts and voices of those who have tried subsequently to validate them.

That these myths are still being “enhanced” by the likes of Mikec who claims a spurious racial purity for his own Jewish faith is both ridiculous and dangerous. Faith in all your Gods is a delusion as it was for all the now forgotten Gods of the past. So I look forward to the time that Islam, Christianity, Judaism and the rest are looked at with the same bemusement now reserved for Mithras and Woden.

Obviously a very distinguished researcher but is he not referring to Ashkenazi Jews, whose ancestry is entirely European and does not therefore support the existence of a Middle Eastern Jewish racial group with origins in biblical times.

As most of the Jews now in Israel are immigrants from Europe it is not surprising that they share some common racial characteristics. The problem with this is that it totally undermines the right of Jews for a Middle Eastern homeland since their racial type is European.

The fault in Mr Davis’s approach to the question of race is in one sense unique to Mr Davis. He has elected to define Jewish people by applying the test of genetics to the exclusion of all other tests; for example the tests applied by British civil and criminal laws.

Another perspective is that the Labour PPC for Manchester Gorton believes in the idea of false consiouness. His ideas are correct, so anyone who disagrees with him is deluded, or in the pay of another group. Such a view lead to millions of deaths in the twentieth century. It underpins the new climate change religion, hence the concentration on oil company funding (with the much bigger government funding the other way ignored). It is encouraged by the current Labour leadership, in evading straight answers and making false claims.
For myself it goes against the ideals of a representative democracy - to be elected by a majority of one's peers and then to represent all interests, no matter which way they voted.

Race/ethnicity is a social construct incorporating biological, sociocultural, psychological, and behavioral components, and there is no genetic definition of race. In contrast, genetic ancestry is a genetics concept that describes the architecture of genome variation between populations. All genetic variation begins locally, as a new mutation in an individual, and thus, all new mutations are initially geographically localized. By virtue of this shared population history, there is a correlation between genetic variants found in one geographic region as compared with those found elsewhere. It follows that variation that is common across human populations separated by geography tends to be old, and many of these variants were likely present at the time of human expansion out of Africa 100 000 years ago.

Any time you Left-liberal boys want a ‘scrap’ , as we Geordie boys would say; you just come on over lads.

Love it, Dreadnaught.

You're hysterical.

Good for you to get it all of your chest. I agree with you to a large extent.


Putting people right about the facts of the matter is one thing, preaching hatred of any kind against the innocent is quite another.

For man is as innocent, as he is ignorant.

Therefore please be reminded, it is as saintly to preach PEACE among men, as it is to confound their ignorance.

A ' homophobic' remark will bring the hounds of hell snapping at your heels,but anti-semitism gets the crowds cheering.
What does this say about us and our society?

Mr Atlas Shrugged

Man is not innocent. That is why he is under the sentence of death. The executioner awaits each man.

Mr Truthseeker, I am sure that friend and foe alike will testify that I behave like this in three-dimensional space.

You people seem to think I am being too hard on our opponents. Yet they mock the Lord our God; if a Judaeo-Christian child speaks to another about Jesus, the child is interrogated by the school authorities; they didn’t stop there, they interrogated her mother; a Judaeo-Christian nurse offered to pray for a patient, she was hauled up before the hospital authorities; a nurse wearing a cross for decades is harassed: tell me which one of you is going to put food on her table? Which one of you is going to step forward and discharge her mortgage? And when she is evicted and made homeless which one of you is going to offer her shelter?

We have a choice: either we are their quarry or we are the hunter.

We are being driven from the public square. There is no room for us. There is no hiding place. There is no shelter.

Examine Ms Dreadnaught’s judgment. And there you have it, the Soviet-style approach to dissidents: lock ‘em up in the lunatic asylum.

That is why I describe her and her ilk as National Socialists.

‘Nothing more strangely indicates an enormous and silent evil of modern society than the extraordinary use which is made nowadays of the word "orthodox." In former days the heretic was proud of not being a heretic.

‘It was the kingdoms of the world and the police and the judges who were heretics. He was orthodox. He had no pride in having rebelled against them; they had rebelled against him. The armies with their cruel security, the kings with their cold faces, the decorous processes of State, the reasonable processes of law--all these like sheep had gone astray.

‘The man was proud of being orthodox, was proud of being right. If he stood alone in a howling wilderness he was more than a man; he was a church. He was the centre of the universe; it was round him that the stars swung. All the tortures torn out of forgotten hells could not make him admit that he was heretical. But a few modern phrases have made him boast of it. He says, with a conscious laugh, "I suppose I am very heretical," and looks round for applause.

‘The word "heresy" not only means no longer being wrong; it practically means being clear-headed and courageous. The word "orthodoxy" not only no longer means being right; it practically means being wrong. All this can mean one thing, and one thing only. It means that people care less for whether they are philosophically right.’

There is a war going on in the heavens a spiritual war for the hearts and souls of men.
The fact that you do not perceive this war makes it no less real.

>"then why is Israel about to be forced to give up land to terrorists?"

because Israel took it from them in the first place, maybe?

The land of Israel belongs to God.
Those who divide it will answer to God.

"Your argument that the world would be a great place without relegion is an argument many athiests use, but I cannot see any clear evidence to support it. It was human nature that has caused the evil, not religion."

I would agree with this thought in part. We would not know for sure that the world would be, overall, a better place without religion as it is certainly human nature that spawns all the evil this world (nothing to do with supernatural horned red entities). At the same time we don't know that the world wouldn't be better without it, their is certainly evidence in part to support both ideas.

However without religion there would certainly be one less reason for division of ideals/beliefs and so remove an area of friction which is prevalent in the world today.

But I'm sure the average man (or not so average) would still find something to disagree and fight about.
