The British Embassy in Tel Aviv (yes, of course, it’s not in Jerusalem) is looking for a new employee:
Senior Manager, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI)
Reporting directly to the Director, UK Trade & Investment (UKTI) at the Embassy, this position will be responsible for:
- Promoting British exports to Israel;
- Promoting UK involvement in Israel’s high value opportunities, especially oil and gas.
This made me chuckle. The job is clearly focused on trying to help UK companies win a slice of the forthcoming gas and oil bonanza we have finally figured out we’re sitting on here in Israel.
After a hundred years in which the British elites and the FCO Arabists have been prostituting themselves to the Arab despots, fixing them up with countries, kingdoms and as many whores and as much illicit booze as they can guzzle when they visit London, the British are going to have to be nice to the Jews too.
I really do feel for the ordinary British citizens who really have no idea how badly led and misled they have been by their rulers and their corrupted state media.
Perhaps, had everyone know there was oil and gas here a few years ago, the following exchange in a cabinet meeting of Chamberlain’s government in 1939 would have been a little different:
“MacDonald was clearly coming under some pressure from some leading British Zionists. But Chamberlain was quite clear where he himself stood. At the meeting of the Cabinet Palestine Committee on 20th April , MacDonald is recorded as saying:
MacDonald: “One must admit to be quite honest that the Government scheme in its latest form includes certain features which would not have been there if we had been allowed to give our undivided attention to devising the best plan for the future good government of Palestine. This situation was of course due to our having incorporated in the scheme to placate the Arabs features as to which we ourselves were not convinced on merits.”
*Prime Minister : “If we must offend one side let us offend the Jews rather than the Arabs.” (author’s italics).
The Chariot of Israel by Harold Wilson p.104.[*The Prime Minister quoted above was Neville Chamberlain. This is also referred to on page 157 of Churchill and the Jews by Martin Gilbert and was recorded in Cabinet Palestine Committee, 20th April 1939: Cabinet Papers, 24/285.]
