The Scottish Government is showing that it is not being run by the Israel lobby, with its support of the BDS campaign. I wholeheartedly congratulate them and support thier bid for global peace.
In taking this course of action , the Scottish Government are not only doing the “right thing” but are making very powerful and influencial enemies! We the people must be very aware of anti-independence ,pro-zionist propaganda.
THE ZIONIST LOBBY CONTROLS UNIONIST POLITICS!! LABOUR ,TORY AND LIB-DEM!! IN BOTH THE UK AND USA
Title: “Washington Lobbying Grew to $3.2 Billion Last Year, Despite Economy”
Authors: Center for Responsive Politics
The Center calculates that interest groups spent $17.4 million on lobbying for every day Congress was in session in 2008, or $32,523 per legislator per day.
Pro-Israel groups, food processing companies, and the oil and gas industry increased their lobbying expenditures the most (as a percentage) between 2007 and 2008.
Former US lawmaker Cynthia McKinney says every candidate for Congress has to sign a pledge to vote for supporting the military superiority of Israel.
“Every candidate for Congress at that time had a pledge. They were given a pledge to sign … that had Jerusalem as the capital city,” McKinney said in an interview with Press TV on Sunday.
“You make a commitment that you would vote to support the military superiority of Israel that the economic assistant that Israel wants that you would vote to provide that,” she added.
McKinney said that if a candidate does not sign the pledge or perform accordingly, “then you do not get money to run your campaign.”
The term Israel lobby in the United Kingdom (also called the Zionist lobby) is a term used to describe the loose coalition of groups and individuals who attempt to influence British foreign policy in support of Israel and its policies. Many decisions made in the Houses of Parliament are made as a direct result of lobbying by parliamentary colleagues, constituents or outside pressure groups
Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) is a parliamentary group founded by the late Conservative MP for Bury and Radcliffe, Michael Fidler and currently chaired by Stuart Polak. The CFI states its main aim is to strengthen business, cultural and political ties between the UK and Israel.Between 2006 and 2009, the CFI paid for more than 30 Conservative parliamentary candidates to visit Israel . A Nov 2009 Dispatches documentary claimed that now around 80% of Conservative MPs are members of the CFI and described them as “beyond doubt the most well- connected and probably the best funded of all Westminster lobbying groups”.
Labour Friends of Israel is a UK Parliament-based lobby group promoting support within the British Labour Party for a strong bilateral relationship between Britain and Israel.Jonathan Mendelsohn the former chairman of the LFI was quoted in the Jerusalem Post saying “Zionism is pervasive in New Labour.It is automatic that Blair will come to Labour Friends of Israel meetings.”
Ralph Miliband (7 January 1924 – 21 May 1994) was a notable British Marxist and sociologist. Though born in Belgium he was of Polish-Jewish ancestry. He was married to Marion Kozak and is the father of two British MPs, David and Ed Miliband, who are both Labour party members of parliament, the latter of whom became the leader of the Labour Party in 2010.
Liberal Democrat Friends of Israel is a group whose stated objective is to ‘maximise support for the State of Israel within the British Liberal Democrat Party’, and to ‘promote policies which lead to peace and security for Israel within a Middle East peace settlement’
European Friends of Israel (EFI) is a European lobby organization for Israel. It was established in September 2006, where 300 MEPs and national MPs took part in an opening ceremony.The “European Friends of Israel” (EFI) organization was established in 2006, by European parliamentarians, with the mission of “forging a stronger political relationship and a deeper understanding between Europe and Israel.”

The Americans were responsible for creation of a gangster state headed by an utterly unscrupulous set of leaders,” – Sir John Troutbeck wrote in his letter to the foreign secretary, Ernest Bevin on June 2,1948.
“Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.”- Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001.

This document details the another ISSA meeting during which Botha says he needs the ‘right payload’ and Peres offers it in ‘three sizes’ (paragraph 10).
In this letter, dated 11 November 1974, Peres says Israel and the South African apartheid government share a “common hatred of injustice” and urges a “close identity of aspirations and interests”.
EXPECT TO BE CALLED AN “ANTI-SEMITE”! BUT THIS IS AS NONSENSE AS THIER BELIEFS. JUDAISM WAS JUST “EGYPTIAN SET WORSHIP” CONVERTED TO ZOROATRIANISM BY CYRUS THE GREAT!

Doomsday prophet, followers ‘flabbergasted’ world didn’t end
By Liz Goodwin
It’s hard to feel bad for someone whose doomsday predictions caused so much anxiety, but 89-year-old Harold Camping’s recent admission that he’s “flabbergasted” the world didn’t end last weekend sounds somewhat pitiful.
BUT DO NOT WORRY ,IF GOD WILL NOT END THE WORLD , THEN THE ZIONISTS WILL!! THEY ARE ONLY DOING GODS WORK AFTER ALL…..
Iran accuses David Miliband of Zionist plot after nuclear speech in Gulf
Sonia Verma, in Dubai David Miliband, the Foreign Secretary, has urged Persian Gulf states to use their economic and political clout to confront Iran on its nuclear ambitions.
Speaking in Abu Dhabi, Mr Miliband warned the prospect of a nuclear-armed Iran posed “the most immediate threat” to the region, accusing Tehran of having “a long history of secrecy about its nuclear programme.”
His comments provoked swift reaction from Tehran, which charged Mr Miliband of holding Zionist ties.
“We have recently seen comments by Miliband about Iran being a threat in the region. There is no doubt about his strong ties with the Zionists,” said Hassan Ghashghavi, Iran’s foreign ministry spokesman.
Britain vows to change policy allowing U.K. to arrest Israeli politicians

Incoming British FM Won’t Rule Out Attacking Iran
Hague Vows to Be ‘Friend of Israel’
by Jason Ditz, May 12, 2010
Hague seems to be taking a considerably more hawkish position on Iran than the Labour government had, and says that it would be a mistake to ever rule out military action against Iran, though his first preference seemed to be for “tough sanctions” against the nation. Officials in the Labour government had repeatedly referred to the prospect of a US attack on Iran as a disaster.
JEWS ARE NOT THE PROBLEM ,ZIONISM IS THE PROBLEM. JUST LIKE GERMANS ARE NOT “THE PROBLEM” BUT NAZISM WAS!…… JUST LIKE PROTESTING AGAINST APARTIDE SOUTH AFRICA WAS NOT BEING ANTI-WHITE PEOPLE!!!
TODAY SOUTH AFRICA IS GLOBALLY ACCEPTED AND TODAY WHITE PEOPLE STILL LIVE AND THRIVE IN SOUTH AFRICA, THEY COULD TEACH ZIONIST ISRAELLIS A FEW LESSONS!!!!
ZIONISM ACTUALLY SLAUGHTERS MORE JEWS THAN ANY GROUP OF “ANTI-SEMITES”. ZIONISTS FOUGHT ON THE SIDE OF NAZI GERMANY. ZIONISTS AGREED WITH FORCED REMOVALS OF JEWS FROM GERMANY . ZIONISTS BOMBED AND KILLED JEWS IN THIERS HUNDREDS IN TERRORIST CAMPAIGNS!
EXPECT AN “UNOFFICIAL ZIONIST” WAR TO BE DECLARED ON AN INDEPENDENT SCOTLAND…………….JUST LIKE BEFORE
FROM JEWS AGAINST ZIONISM
The Daily Express (London) published an article on March 24, 1933 announcing that the Jews had already launched their boycott against Germany and described a forthcoming “holy war”. The Express urged Jews everywhere to boycott German goods and demonstrate against German economic interests.
The Express said that Germany was “now confronted with an international boycott of its trade, its finances, and its industry….In London, New York, Paris and Warsaw, Jewish businessmen are united to go on an economic crusade.”
The article went on, “worldwide preparations are being made to organize protest demonstrations.”
On March 27, 1933 the planned protest at Madison Square Garden was attended by 40,000 protestors (New York Daily News headlines: “40,000 Roar Protest Here Against Hitler”).
Similar rallies and protest marches were also held in other cities. The intensity of the Jewish campaign against Germany was such that the Hitler government vowed that if the campaign did not stop there would be a one-day boycott in Germany of Jewish-owned stores.
Hitler’s March 28, 1933 speech ordering a boycott against Jewish stores and goods was in direct response to the declaration of war on Germany by the worldwide Jewish leadership.
That same spring of 1933 there began a period of private cooperation between the German government and the Zionist movement in Germany and worldwide to increase the flow of German-Jewish immigrants and capital to Palestine.
Growing anti-Semitism in Germany and by the German government in response to the boycott played into the hands of the Zionist leaders. Prior to the escalation of anti-Semitism as a result of the boycott the majority of German Jews had little sympathy for the Zionist cause of promoting the immigration of world Jewry to Palestine. Making the situation in Germany as uncomfortable for the Jews as possible, in cooperation with German National Socialism, was part of the Zionist plan to achieve their goal of populating Palestine with a Jewish majority.
“For all intents and purposes, the National Socialist government was the best thing to happen to Zionism in its history, for it “proved” to many Jews that Europeans were irredeemably anti-Jewish and that Palestine was the only answer: Zionism came to represent the overwhelming majority of Jews solely by trickery and cooperation with Adolf Hitler.” 
 Barnes Review, “The Jewish Declaration of War on Nazi Germany, The Economic Boycott of 1933”
ZIOINIST FOUGHT ON THE SIDE OF NAZI GERMANY. ISRAELLIS LATER VOTED THESE NAZI COLLABORATORS AS PRIME MINISTERS AND GAVE THEM MEDALS
From the German side, the following declarations and actions were demanded: (1) Full recognition of an independent Jewish state in Palestine/Eretz Israel (2) That the ability to emigrate to Palestine be conceded to all Jews, with no restriction of numbers, who, in leaving their homes in Europe, by their own will or because of government injunctions.
On January 11, 1941 a letter by Lehi, which would be later referred to as the Ankara document, was sent from Vice Admiral Ralf von der Marwitz, the German Naval attaché in Ankara, depicting an offer to “actively take part in the war on Germany’s side” in return for German support for “the establishment of the historic Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, bound by a treaty with the German Reich.”
The letter was signed by Avraham Stern and the later Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir.
BUT MOST OF OFFICIAL HISTORY IS JUST LIES AND PROPAGANDA

Scottish First Minister Supports Sanctions Against Israel
London, (Pal Telegraph) – First Minister Alex Salmond supported economic sanctions against Israel. He described Israel’s massacre of nine Mavi Marmara passengers as an “atrocity on the high seas” and put Israel firmly beyond the pale. “This has implications for example in trading relationships—you can’t have normal relationships if you believe another country has been involved in what Israel has been involved in.”
Scotland’s elections shattered political mould – SNP triumphant. The pro-war and pro-Israel Labour, Tory and Lib Dem parties punished SNP Leader Alex Salmond tried to impeach Tony Blair for war crimes in Iraq. Scottish Government offered open access to Scottish hospitals for Palestinian victims of Operation Cast Lead. Nationalist government must be pressured to match deeds with words
Scotland’s elections have shattered the political mould, battered every political party other than the SNP (Scottish National Party) and given us a nationalist majority in the Edinburgh Parliament. The voting system was expressly designed to prevent such an outcome. Unlike Palestinians, though, we do not expect to be punished severely for voting in a way that London disapproves of.
The Labour, Tory and Lib Dem parties that are attacking living standards have been punished and the SNP has reaped the benefits of being seen to oppose the cuts to living standards, services and jobs .
We should also remember that the SNP leader, Alex Salmond, has steered his party over the years to oppose many of the core militarist policies of the other parties: he launched an initiative in 2004 to impeach Tony Blair for war crimes in Iraq, and the SNP opposes the Trident nuclear weapons system.
Salmond, far and away Scotland’s most popular and effective politician, has also been harshly and publicly critical of Israeli crimes. Following Israel’s abuse of British passports to murder a Hamas official in a Dubai hotel room in March 2010, First Minister Salmond supported the idea of economic sanctions against Israel. He dismissed the London Government’s expulsion of a low level Israeli Embassy official when he told a BBC Question Time audience that Israel’s unceasing crimes merited more than a “diplomatic dance” over passport mis-use.
Salmond labelled Israel’s massacre of nine Mavi Marmara passengers as an “atrocity on the high seas”. No UK Government officials would condemn Israel for the killings and David Miliband said he was “seeking clarification” from Israeli Foreign Minister Lieberman. Alex Salmond, in contrast, put Israel firmly beyond the pale. “This has implications for example in trading relationships—you can’t have normal relationships if you believe another country has been involved in what Israel has been involved in”.
One newly elected MSP, Humza Yousef, correctly pointed out in a letter to SPSC that there have “been actions also, hundreds of thousands of pounds have been released in aid to Gaza , and opening our hospitals to treat those who were injured in the horrific assault in 2009 (this was an appeal you made at the time directly to the Scot Gov’t).”
Alex Salmond has also opposed those who seek to conflate political criticism or opposition to Israeli crimes with hostility to the Jewish Community.
Addressing a Glasgow Jewish community meeting in May 2010, he was asked “to do what he could to halt” BDS actions outside Glasgow supermarkets. Salmond responded with an elementary distinction:
“I don’t think we should accept as a community that your position in Scottish society should be judged or affected by the policies of Israel. The Jewish community is not liable for those policies. It is possible to be critical of Israel without being anti-Semitic. The Jewish community should not be judged on whether people approve or disapprove of the actions of Israel.”
He also dismissed claims by some Zionists that anti-Semitism was driving Jews out of Scotland, an unfounded claim that serves the Zionist programme to have Jews move to Israel:
“I don’t share the analysis that the Jewish community is suffering a wave of persecution or that anti-Semitism in Scotland is rapidly growing and such a severe problem that it is jeopardising this community..I don’t believe that the Jewish community is under siege nor do I believe that it feels itself to be under siege…Scotland has never had to introduce any laws to deal with anti-Semitism”.
Salmond’s positions have been in sharp contrast to the London Government, which attacked and invaded Iraq and Afghanistan and endorsed every Israeli crime.
David Miliband, for example, refused to condemn the Israeli attacks on boats to Gaza with humanitarian aid and David Cameron described himself as “a proud Zionist” supporting Israel, which acted with “great restraint” against Lebanese or Palestinian “terrorists”.
But the Israeli violations of international law, and the ongoing killings, mass imprisonment and dispossession of the Palestinian people, mean that we have to go beyond humanitarian aid and words to support the Palestinian appeal for BDS, boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel until Palestinians gain their freedom.
That means that we must pressure the newly-mandated Scottish Government to live up to First Minister Alex Salmond’s words that Israel’s behaviour merits trade sanctions. That must include the rescinding of the £200,000 Scottish Enterprise grant to Eden Springs, the Israeli water cooler company involved in serious human rights violations in the Golan, Syrian territory held by the British Government to be illegally occupied by Israel.
Help us to keep the pressure on the Government to act on First Minister Alex Salmond’s call for trade sanctions against Israel. Join and support the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign.
