After it emerged that sitting Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is now subject to investigation for alleged fraud and bribery – not least regarding his notorious clandestine deal with German Chancellor Angela Merkel re the multi-billion dollar supply of a fleet of nuclear-ready submarines to Netanyahu’s coalition government, his wife, Sara Netanyahu, is now reported to have been indicted on four counts of fraud for allegedly diverting some $100,000 in public funds for her family’s own personal use.
An alleged family business of fraud, bribery, kickbacks and corruption are not exactly the type of ‘friends’ with whom Britain should be negotiating bilateral arms deals worth millions of pounds that could conceivably adversely affect UK national security.
The state of Israel is the only secret nuclear weapons state in the world, and one that is outside the inspection of the IAEA – but a regime with which Prime Minister Theresa May together with the Conservative Friends of Israel lobby group, [CFI], are inexplicably linked with bilateral military deals.
May and Netanyahu are not only strange bedfellows but constitute a dangerous liaison that could well set fire to the bedclothes. So why carry out bilateral military trade with this non-European, non-NATO, Middle Eastern, undeclared nuclear weapons state that could, if it wished, blow Britain out of the water?
Are there matters of national security of which the British electorate should really be more aware, and adequately informed? In particular, why is Theresa May not dealing with NATO suppliers/manufacturers of military equipment, for Britain’s armed forces?
