The British Government Votes to Recognize a "Palestinian" State

Times Of Israel: British MPs vote an overwhelming ‘Yes’ to Palestine
274 support motion urging ‘the government to recognize the State of Palestine,’ while only 12 oppose, in vote laden with symbolism

British House of Commons

British lawmakers voted resoundingly Monday in favor of a Palestinian state, in a debate unlikely to change government policy but laden with political symbolism.

Ed Miliband
The ayes carried the vote with 274 votes, against only 12 nays. Opposition Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, who is Jewish, voted in support of the motion.

Prime Minister David Cameron and other government leaders abstained, and more than half of the 650 Commons members did not participate in the vote.

The initial motion that was debated declared: “This House urges the government to recognize the State of Palestine alongside the State of Israel.” It was subsequently amended to add the phrase “as a contribution to securing a negotiated two-state solution.” (cont.)
Esser Agaroth (2¢):
In a nutshell, this decision has power over Israel and the Jewish People, for one, and only one reason.

We give it power.
Jack Straw
Labour’s former foreign secretary Jack Straw during the debate: “The only thing that the Israeli Government understand, under the present demeanour of Benjamin Netanyahu, is pressure. What the House will be doing this evening will be to add to the pressure on the Government of Israel. That is why they are so worried about this resolution passing. Were it just a gesture… they would not be bothered at all. They are very worried indeed because they know that it will have an effect.”
Well, Jack Straw got that right.

This is by far not the first time, nor I am afraid the last time, that we have succumbed to our sick and desperate, co-dependent, delusional need to have our existence validated and accepted from the outside, from the non-Jewish, "international community."
Opposition Labour Party leader Ed Miliband, who is Jewish, voted in support of the motion.
Gerald Kaufman with Hamas Terrorist Leader Ismail Haniyeh
He was not the only totally clueless, assimilated Jew expressing his un-Jewness in Parliament. MP Gerald Kaufmann (Labour) was there as well, "denouncing Israeli Atrocities in Palestine."

I suppose that the use of women, children, and the handicapped, by Hamas as human shields had nothing to do with the number of their casualties, and that the Jewish kids hiding out in bomb shelters were just chopped liver.

Even Jewish MP Mike Freer (Conservative) who resigned over the vote, warned that the resolution "harms the 'two-state solution' on the grand scale." Such deep internment in the galuth (exile) mentality never ceases to floor me.

I still cannot understand why Miliband, Kaufman, Freer, and others bother to invest their efforts in a country which is not even really theirs. Money? Power? Creature comforts?

George Galloway
Meanwhile, the non-Jewish MP's were not to be outdone. Infamous Jew-hater MP George Galloway (Respect) declared that "The West has double standards when it comes to Israel."

Well, I must say that he certainly got that right, but not in the manner he believes.

And though the Israeli Government is horribly flawed, often approaching the challenges which face the Jewish People from a backwards, and almost always Godless, perspective, is occasionally does try to do the right thing.

Those on the side of truth always win out.

Jews and non-Jews alike have insisted on the existence of some sort of genocidal, Zionist conspiracy being responsible for the limited deaths of Israelis, during the latest Gaza War. Of course, the truth is  The Almighty, is on our side, and showed us His mercy. 

His validation and acceptance is all that we ever need. It is high time that we stop wasting our time and energy on what human beings think about us, and focus.

No wonder why there is a rise in Jew-hating violence. History has shown that, unfortunately, this is  one of the most effective ways for us to get the message.

Will we ever learn?

Well it's interesting that this is happening in Britain, the country that between 1920-1948 did everything it could to betray its Balfour promise and create an Arab state in Israel

Yes, it is.

I'm still not certain as to the details of any pattern rolling across Europe.

Could the "British Israelite" belief of the Royal Family be behind the virulent anti-Jewish Israel sentiment?

I'm not sure.

Thank you for commenting.
