British Lords cancel Iran seminar under Zionist lobby’s pressure
(Ahlul Bayt News Agency) - UK's All-Party Parliamentary Group of the House of Lords had arranged the seminar for a debate on restoring diplomatic relations with Iran, lifting the siege and threat of war, exposing "the deception and hypocrisy" and proposing peaceful and legal solutions to "the contrived crisis" with the country.
The Zionist lobby also threatened Lord Nazir Ahmed to keep him from chairing the seminar. The lobby also contacted the Labour Party with objections over the 'extremist views' of some of those involved in the seminar.
The Zionist lobby in Britain has been even more successful than the same lobby in the United States of America, rightfully argues Janine Robert, an investigative journalist.
According to the journalist there are 13 pro-Zionist Senators in the US Senate and 30 in the House of Representatives.
This is while, in the UK, where there is a Jewish Community 20 times smaller, there are 18 pro-Zionist lawmakers in the House of Commons and 41 in the House of Lords.
It is the highest Jewish representation in the West, where all these figures are Zionist, thanks to former prime minister Tony Blair’s patronage, Janine believes.
Many decisions made in both Houses of Parliament and Lords are made as a direct result of lobbying by parliamentary colleagues, constituents or outside pressure groups including “private companies known as lobbyists” employed by organizations.
For example, Labour Friend of Israel (LFI) is a UK parliament-based lobby group promoting support within the British Labour Party for a strong bilateral relationship between Britain and the Zionist regime of Israel.
According to their manifesto, LFI supports a two-state solution in the occupied Palestinian territories with Israeli regime recognized and secured within its self-declared borders and the establishment of a viable Palestinian state.
Labour Friends of Israel (LFI) was founded in October 1957 at a public rally during the annual Labour Party Conference. Anthony Greenwood MP was appointed its first Chair. For over 50 years LFI has remained one of the most active groups in the Labour Party, drawing wide support from ministers, MPs, MEPs, peers, members of the Welsh Assembly and Scottish Parliament, advisers and activists.
The group’s chair is Andrew Gwynne and senior politicians including Tony Blair, former Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, also a former Prime Minister, David Blankett, a former Home Secretary, Chris Bryant, a former minister of Europe, Stephen Byers, former Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, John Reid, a former Home Secretary and many other high-ranking Labour politicians could be named among its members.
