Gilad Atzmon 26 June 2016 quotes the israeli newspaper Haaretz: “With Brexit, Israel Loses a Major Asset in the European Union,” Haaretz reports today.
“Britain helped moderate and balance EU decisisions about the peace process,blunt criticism and even harness the member states against anti-Israel movesat the UN; voices sympathetic to the Palestinian cause could now become more dominant.”
According to the Israeli paper, PM David Cameron met leaders of the Jewish community in London a few days before the referendum. Cameron asked the Jewish oligarchs, “do you want Britain – Israel’s greatest friend – in there opposing boycotts, opposing the campaign for divestment and sanctions, or do you want us outside the room, powerless to affect the discussion that takes place?”
Maybe Brussels needs to familiarize itself with the elements within the UK Jewish lobby that seek to weaken or even dissolve the EU. I guess that the Brits can see that their politicians repeatedly compromise their national interests. The emergence of Boris Jonson, Michael Gov and Theresa May is not going to change this fact. The Israeli press has already confirmed that these three are the most devoted Zionist enthusiasts in the Kingdom and beyond.
Cameron is of Jewish origin – has his family fortune in Panama fron a Jewish banker ancestor.
