Boris Johnson's First Order of Business: Ban Boycotting Israel

Ed.'s note: See how Brexit worked? The Labour Party was defeated because as we were told it signaled the end of socialism. That might be partially true, but what happened was that while the Labour Party was accused of being "antisemitic" since Jeremy Corbyn (see Fact-checking Maajid Nawaz on Jeremy Corbyn) first appeared, the results of Boris Johnson winning the election means that now the UK is fully behind Israel. The first thing Boris Johnson announced was his intention to ban boycotting Israel. Here is George Friedman, a Jewish Neocon who ran Strafor talking about the "coming conflict in Europe" more than five years ago. Stratfor is an extension of various intelligence connected think tanks and its basic tenet is war. This Hungarian Jewish hard core neocon George Friedman has even stated clearly that war with Russia is unavoidable using divide & conquer tactics with Friedman's Cordon sanitaire ('sanitary cordon') strategy for Europe. With the defeat of Europe and now the UK, Israel is on its way to becoming a global super power. Understand that in this discussion antisemitism has been weaponized to Israel's advantage.

Head of UK Israel Lobby Group Announces Gov't Plan To Ban Boycotting Israel

After an election dogged by the weaponization of anti-Semitism, the victorious UK conservative party has announced a new legislative push that would prevent the public sector from working with any individual or organization that supports a boycott of Israel's government.

JERUSALEM — Following the results of the recent UK election, the victorious Conservative party has now declared their intention to make it illegal for public institutions in the country to support non-violent boycotts of the state of Israel in any capacity.

On Sunday, the UK Special Envoy for post-Holocaust matters, Lord Eric Pickles, gave a speech in Jerusalem at the International Institute for Strategic Dialogue conference, where he made the Conservatives' motives clear. Pickles, whose speech garnered "rapturous applause" from conference attendees, stated that the public sector would soon be banned from associating in any way with the Boycott Divest Sanctions (BDS) movement, which uses non-violent means to pressure Israel to follow international law with regards to its military occupation of Palestine and blockade of the Gaza Strip.

The coming ban, as described by Pickles, is set to prohibit government bodies and organizations from supporting BDS in any fashion, which would also prevent them from employing or working with anyone who supports boycotting the Israeli state. Pickles went on to say the reason for the ban is that BDS itself is anti-Semitic (despite BDS having numerous Jewish supporters), stating:
BDS is anti-Semitic, and should be treated as such. Anti-Semitism is an attack on the British way of life and British identity. Without our Jewish citizens, we would be a lesser nation."
Notably, Pickles is also the parliamentary chairman of the U.K. pro-Israel lobby group, Conservative Friends of Israel.

Pickles also made it clear that he conflates Judaism with Zionism, a move that was recently made law in the United States through an executive order signed by President Trump that reclassifies Judaism as a race and nationality as opposed to a religion. Regarding his personal support for Israel, Pickles did not mention Judaism at all, instead championing Zionism and Israel's ability to "defend its borders." He referred to himself as "an unapologetic, unreformed Zionist," before adding that "Israel exists because it can defend its borders, and its people. It is the only place in this region in which governments are elected. It is a civilized, decent place and I'm very proud it exists." Pickles has previously called Israel a "bastion of democracy."

The planned ban on BDS is only the latest attempt by the Conservative party to inhibit non-violent efforts aimed at pressuring Israel to comply with international law. The first such attempt took place in 2016 when Conservative MP Matthew Hancock traveled to Jerusalem and announced the Conservatives' intention to ban boycotts of Israel at a joint press conference with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. However, those attempts failed largely thanks to the U.K. Supreme Court, which prevented an attempted ban in 2016. Since that ruling, the fight to force a nationwide BDS ban has been the subject of ongoing court cases.
