Former British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw told the truth for a change

A report from an ex-member of the Israeli Knesset Wednesday claimed that during a meeting in the British Houses of Parliament, former Foreign Secretary and Home Secretary Jack Straw (Lab) ‘peddled an anti-Semitic’ trope about Jewish control over U.S. and German foreign policy.

Straw reportedly claimed that pro-Israel lobby groups such as AIPAC work with this “unlimited” funding to “divert American policy in the region” and stated that “Germany’s “obsession” with defending Israel” was a major problem.

I guess that Straw possesses some intimate details about the ‘Labour Friends of Israel’ and Lord ‘Cash Machine’ Levy who were the chief fundraisers for Blair’s Government at the time this democratically elected junta took Britain into a criminal war in Iraq.

Trending Central reports that the “trope about Jewish money and control is recognised as anti-Semitism by EUMC Working Definition, which a part of states: “[Anti-Semitism is] . . . making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as collective—such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.”

But Straw didn’t speak about ‘Jews’; he actually spoke about some specific Jewish organisations. And if this is not enough, he also told the truth and refrained from any conspiratorial suggestions.

The only question that is left open is how long is it going take for Straw before he shamelessly repent for telling the truth.
