British MP Censures Blair For Toeing Zionist Line

He's one of the few people who could get away with this, it's going to cause problems for him but he's telling it like it is. Israel is a FAR more important player on the world stage than is the impression given by the media. Everyone is utterly terrified of saying anything that may seem a little critical of Israel as a result there's this wall of silence that only a few manage to scale. Tam Dalyell is one of those and we should all be thankful to him as well. Still no mention of this on News24 but I've given up taking them seriously now, I use News24 as a natural alternative to sleeping pills. If you want news: tune-out and log-on.

Veteran British MP Tam Dalyell, the Father of the House of Commons, sparked outrage of the Jewish figures Saturday, May 3, by accusing British Prime Minister Tony Blair of "being unduly influenced by a cabal of Jewish advisers."

"I am fully aware that one is treading on cut glass on this issue and no one wants to be accused of anti-Semitism but, if it is a question of launching an assault on Syria or Iran . . . then one has to be candid," the MP for Linlithgow told The Telegraph.

He added: "I am not going to be labeled anti-Semitic. My children worked on a kibbutz. But the time has come for candor."

The Prime Minister, Dalyell said, was also influenced by Jewish people in the Bush administration, including Richard Perle, a Pentagon adviser, Paul Wolfowitz, the deputy defense secretary, and Ari Fleischer, the President's press secretary.

"They very much have captured the ear of the President of the United States. I said I thought that Blair was very sympathetic to them. I cannot understand why," Dalyell said.

Dalyell's statements, in effect, caused fury Saturday night.
