UK PARLIAMENT HOSTS ANTI-ZIONIST HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR ON MEMORIAL DAY
British Parliament hosts anti-Zionist Auschwitz survivor for Holocaust memorial day
Yesterday, I attended the Holocaust memorial event at Auschwitz in Poland. Little did I know that back in my home country anti-Israeli activists had co-opted two Labour MPs to host a Holocaust survivor in Parliamentâ€¦ to lambast the State of Israel and to accuse Zionists of abusing the Holocaust for political aims.
This gross perversion of the true meaning and significance of the day on which the civilised world was marking the 65th anniversary of the liberation of the Nazi death camp at Auschwitz was recounted first hand by Jonathan Hoffman, co-vice chair of the UKâ€™s Zionist Federation and one of Britainâ€™s leading pro-Israel activists. Hoffman attended the event and gives a first hand account in the link below.
It transpires that the Holocaust survivor in question is an 85 year old man named Hajo Meyer who has been taken up by the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign (SPSC) and paraded around Britain. On Tuesday night he spoke at Goldsmiths College in London.
He has also been shown off at events in Glasgow, Dundee, Edinburgh, Sheffield and Liverpool where his fierce denunciations of Israel and Zionism have received standing ovations.
Wednesdayâ€™s event at a packed committee room at Westminster was organised by far-Left Labour MP Jeremy Corbyn and his party colleague Brian Iddon, secretary of the Britain-Palestine group, whose electoral constituency is in Bolton, a northern English city with a large Muslim population. Iddon hosted an event in the same room in Parliament last year to promote Ben Whiteâ€™s notorious book, Israeli Apartheid: A Beginners Guide.
