UK Home Office: Hate Crimes, Jewish Exceptionalism, and Inequality Under the Law

17 Jul

[Published 17 July, 2017, Updated 25 July, 2017]

In late 2015, the UK Government announced a £13.4m grant of taxpayers money, to fund the work of the Community Security Trust (CST), “for security measures, including security guards, at Jewish independent and state schools, colleges and nurseries, synagogues and other community sites, and will be managed by CST.”

CST, calls itself ‘the UK’s security and hate crimes monitoring organisation for members of the British Jewish community.’ It was founded by the prolific and corrupt, money-laundering and tax avoiding, property investment and business entrepreneur, Gerald Maurice Ronson, CBE.

The announcement of the grant, was made by then Prime Minister, David Cameron – a granted that was facilitated by Sir Eric Pickles, the former Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government – whose most recent roles include; being a paid advisor to CST for ‘undisclosed activities’, the Chair of the Conservative Friends of Israel – and now a government role as the ‘Special Envoy to Israel.’

The grant was briefly put on hold, until Cameron left public office – to avoid exposure of his business and financial dealings, but reaffirmed by the former Home Secretary and now current Prime Minister, Theresa May, in March 2016 – at a fundraising gala dinner, organised by CST and sponsored by Deloitte.

In March 2017, at the same fundraising gala attended by May, the current Home Secretary, Amber Rudd, also reaffirmed: “We [the Government] will be continuing the funding of the Jewish community protective security grant… for 2017 to 2018.” Adding that she, [Rudd], believed that there is, or was, a ‘significant’ jihadi threat to their [Jewish] safety in the UK.

The remote possibility of a jihadi ‘threat’ [against British Jews] is exactly that… it is pure fantasy, that was purposely orchestrated and amplified by CST itself. It is, of course, a completely unfounded, fabrication and nonsense! The purpose of which, is to maintain the notion of Jewish privilege and exceptionalism as Chosenites.

As evidence of which, one only need take a look at Hansard, on CST’s own website, and its Twitter account. In particular, CST’s recent misleading reporting of hoax bomb threats to British Jewish schools and institutions.

As this story unfolded, the truth of the matter was, that these bomb threats were actually made by an Israeli, using “sophisticated technology”, to hide and maintain his anonymity.

He made in excess of 2000 hoax bomb threat phone calls before being caught, in at least 10 countries. Rather than admit any facts, the Israeli Government have declared him ‘mentally ill’, than admit any involvement or wrongdoing.

Prior to his identification and capture by US authorities, in January 2017, CST posted: “27 Jewish centres in the USA evacuated after bomb threats; Last week CST dealt with several threats to Jewish schools.” On several occasions, over the same period, CST also, wrongly, blamed a Black man for these same hoax bomb threats against the global Jewish community.

Aside, although the threat of experiencing acts of Jew hatred may well have increased in recent years, there is absolutely no existential threat of an act of terrorism, against British Jews, on British soil, that warrants such favouritism by the British Government, over and above the threat of such an attack, or act of hatred and abuse, experienced by any other minority religious or ethnic group in the UK!

It is a complete and utter manipulation and deception by CST, to even suggest that there is!

Again, as the evidence bears out, hate crimes towards British Jews have actually decreased overall and are far less violent, whereas abuse in general and violent attacks against members of BAME communities, refugees, and LGBTI+ communities have significantly increased. 

The fact of the matter is, that in capitulating to CST’s deliberately false and pervasive narrative, of an ‘imminent [Jihadi] attack’ on British Jews, the UK government has wilfully ignored the more prevalent and increasing abuse and hatred toward other, equally, if not more deserving, minority communities.

Without doubt, the grant, of £13.4 million, given to CST – has been given without due regard to any proper assessment, accountability, or consideration of the greater need of any other minority groups – experiencing a more significant issue of abuse and hatred.

The Home Office has thus far refused all requests to disclose any information with regard to how the grant was solicited, by whom, any audit trail or required documentation, monitoring and evaluation, breakdown of expenditure, purpose or outcomes.

If one considers the official government and police data [on increases in hate crimes], on which groups – are most likely to be subjected to abuse, attacks, and hatred, or similar threats – members of the British Jewry are at the bottom of the scale, yet receive greater privilege and favouritism more than any other groups.

What have these other groups – who are indeed statistically and evidentially in greater need – in regard to provision, support, and intervention been given or provided with?

The answer, is merely ‘access’ to a small proportion of a £1 million funding pot. That British Jews should receive more support from the UK Government, than the murdered members of the LGBTI+ community; Muslims who have been subjected to acid attacks and run over outside mosque for prayers; or refugees and immigrants relentlessly abused murdered in the streets?

In favouring CST, over other groups monitoring and challenging hatred and abuse, all that the UK government has done, is dismiss the rights of those in greater need, and pander to the view of Jewish victimhood and exceptionalism, which works to ferment and increasing resentment of Jews in general. 

As it stands, the fact that CST is the sole recipient of such a significant grant goes against all current British laws and principles and values for fairness and equality under the law.
