This blog article is about Luke Akehurst and the extent of his involvement against the will of the British people and collusion with the State of Israel to undermine British politics and democracy.

You should be aware that Luke Akehurst has been a Labour member for many years; is known to dislike the current party leader, Jeremy Corbyn; and is a very active supporter of the Israeli government in the UK.

We’ll go into his work and professional background, other activities, as well as links to the nefarious Israeli lobby, shortly, but let’s first start with what initially necessitated this blog exposé on his involvement.

On the 26 July, 2017, Luke tweeted the following:

Screen Shot 2017-07-29 at 17.44.06.png

It was in direct response to a tweet by Green Party Leader, Caroline Lucas, calling for the complete cessation of arms sales to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Luke replies that supporting Saudi’s assault on Yemen is justified in his view, because (and I quote): “I absolutely do not want Iran to win in Yemen or anywhere else.”

Luke’s view of Iran, ‘as a common enemy of Western society’, is essentially a Zionist and Israeli one, but not entirely unjustified.

His comments were made in reference to current war efforts and activities by the Saudi regime in Yemen.

To be clear, Iran is not currently active in Yemen.

Rather, the UAE, Israel, and the US, currently run secret torture centres there, and the country is under constant joint military bombardment, including use of White phosphorous.

Use of White phosphorous has long been banned under international law, but you can see in one of the images above (girl to the right), that it is still in use and the damage and suffering its indiscriminate use causes.

Since 2015, in excess of 2,000 children have been murdered by the Saudis in Yemen and now Amnesty, UNICEF, and others report major outbreaks of cholera and potential famine.

Hichem Yezza, Editor-in-chief at Ceasefire Magazine, called Luke’s support for Saudi repugnant and ill-informed.

Luke’s response was to first question Hichem’s credentials on the matter and then seemingly ignore the costs of orchestrated proxy wars, claiming that selling arms to Saudi is right and proper because it protects British industry and jobs.

For the record, it is no secret that the Saudi war with Yemen is a proxy war and part of Israel’s so-called Yinon plan, to establish a greater Israel, and wipe out its Muslim and Arab enemies in the Middle East.

According to international law, Israel is not permitted to have any nuclear weapons; but it does, and has the fourth largest military in the world.

The fact of the matter is, countries like Turkiye, Iran, and Pakistan, help keep Israel and its plans in check. Without which, Israel’s activities would go unchecked, with disastrous outcomes for the whole of humanity.

Nonetheless, Israel continues to do all it can to work around and undermine these safeguards.

Despite knowing this, Luke refuses to publicly admit any of it, claiming that it’s all a conspiracy.

However, on closer inspection, when you ask Luke about his work and affiliations, he goes quiet all of a sudden.

For example, Luke is employed as a director for the British-based ‘We Believe in Israel’ Campaign (WBiIC).

WBiIC is a campaigning organisation founded and set up by BICOM, known as the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre, which was founded by the Israeli billionaire, Chaim Poju Zabludowicz.

Zabludowicz acquired his fortune via his father, Schlomo, an arms dealer.

Poju Zabludowicz was recently required to give evidence in corruption charges laid against Netanyahu and is known to have given former British Prime Minister, David Cameron, significant, undisclosed personal donations and gifts.

BICOM and the ‘We Believe in Israel’ Campaign are lobbying organisations, but neither are registered as such, which is a legal requirement in accordance with UK lobbying regulations.

Luke denies that either BICOM or WBiIC are involved in lobbying activities, but you can see the evidence here for yourselves.

Further evidence of lobbying can be found here.

Chaim Poju Zabludowicz is also closely linked with the Community Security Trust founder, Gerald Maurice Ronson, who is a convicted fraudster and suspected tax avoider.

The ‘We Believe in Israel’ Campaign published a claim on its website to have gathered the support of 200 plus UK Members of Parliament, to support the activities and efforts of the State of Israel as part of their individual candidacy and election commitment in the 2017 General Election.

This is a clear breach of electioneering and lobbying regulations.

After some persistent questioning, Luke confirmed that BICOM pays his salary as director of WBiIC.

Luke also confirmed that he has met with the former Israeli diplomat Shai Masot.

For those unaware, Masot was sent back to Israel, after he was exposed by Al Jazeera, for attempting to infiltrate and subvert British politics and democratic processes.

When questioned as to when he last met with Masot, Luke answered that he last met with him in 2016.

Luke was pushed further, to provide exact details, of what he last discussed with Masot, but refused to answer.

Similarly, when asked to give the name of his new contact and handler from Israel at the British Israeli Embassy, Luke also refused to answer and simply blocked the Twitter account asking him these questions.

Interestingly, Luke has not expressed any concern regarding the girl (see header image) who was disfigured by the use of White phosphorous.

Not that you care, Luke, but her name is Walaa Hussien al-Hutroum, aged 9, from Sanaa, Yemen. The photo was taken on the 25 April, 2015.

Luke is also implicated in the false smears of antiSemitism instigated by Ruth Smeeth, MP, former staff member of BICOM against Labour activist Mark Wadden.

Luke is also a member and supporter of the World Zionist Organisation and proactively works to counter and criminalise the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement.

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 grant 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.

C56TLrPWMAAB2TA.jpg

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 portion 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.
