The UK is quietly changing its policy on Israel and Palestine

Palestinians were delighted to see 2016 end with the UN Security Council passing resolution 2334 which reaffirmed the illegality of Israel’s settlement enterprise. The passing of the resolution was facilitated by the US abstention in the dying days of Obama’s administration. The UK played a key role in the drafting of the resolution and then voted in favour.

While not formally denying its involvement in drafting the resolution, the Foreign Office stressed “the resolution was proposed and drafted by the Egyptian delegation”, adding that the UK, as one of the five permanent members of the security council, “engaged with” the text “as we do with all security council texts”. At the time, this put the UK on a collision course with Israel and raised the spectre of a disagreement on Israel and Palestine with the incoming Trump administration.

Whatever pressure was applied on the UK worked rather quickly as Prime Minister Theresa May heavily criticised outgoing US Secretary of State John Kerry’s speech on the Palestinian-Israeli issue delivered as he was about to leave office. He concluded that the two-state solution was “in jeopardy” and laid much of the blame at Israel’s expansionist settlement policy, driven by “the most right-wing government in history” and arguing that “the settler agenda is defining the future in Israel. And their stated purpose is clear: They believe in one state: Greater Israel,” Kerry said. He added that, “If the choice is one state, Israel can either be Jewish or democratic, it cannot be both, and it won’t ever really be at peace.”

In a statement on Kerry’s speech, Number 10 made clear a more broad-ranging approach was needed to encourage peace and that “…the settlements are far from the only problem in this conflict. In particular, the people of Israel deserve to live free from the threat of terrorism, with which they have had to cope for too long”. In what was seen as a rebuke to Kerry, the prime minister’s spokesman said that Britain did not believe “that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically-elected government of an ally. The Government believes that negotiations will only succeed when they are conducted between the two parties, supported by the international community.”

An explanation of May’s position was provided by Conservative MP and member of the Conservative Friends of Israel, Mike Freer. He argued that the prime minister had been “blindsided” by the Foreign Office which he described as having “a patchy record at the UN regarding Israel. This too I suspect may now change.”

In what seems to be a re-orientation of its policy on Palestine and Israel, the UK then refused to send a high-level delegation to the Middle East peace conference organised by France just five days before Trump took over as US president. The UK was the only major stakeholder in the conflict to send a low-level delegation while 36 foreign ministers as well as the US Secretary of State were in attendance. The attendees saw the conference as an opportunity to restate the international community’s commitment to a two-state solution and to express opposition to a move of embassies from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

A Foreign Office statement said: “We have particular reservations about an international conference intended to advance peace between the parties that does not involve them – indeed which is taking place against the wishes of the Israelis – and which is taking place just days before the transition to a new American President when the US will be the ultimate guarantor of any agreement.” The statement further argued that, “There are risks therefore that this conference hardens positions at a time when we need to be encouraging the conditions for peace.”

The UK’s position on the Paris conference was a sign of departure from longstanding positions allied to those of the EU to ones that seemed to be looking across the Atlantic to the future Trump administration.

If further confirmation of the shift of UK policy was needed, then this came at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) 34th session.  The UK’s stance surprised most commentators as it changed its voting policy under item seven on the agenda which requires that Israel’s human rights record be discussed and scrutinised three times each year.

On this occasion, the UK representative to the UNHRC made a scathing attack against the Council, accusing it of “bias against Israel”. He further argued that, “The persistence of bias, particularly the disproportionate volume of resolutions against Israel, undermines the council’s credibility as the globally focussed and objective international human rights body we all want and need.”

Placing the UNHRC “on notice” the representative concluded that if things did not change soon, “in the future we will adopt a policy of voting against all resolutions concerning Israel’s conduct in the Occupied Syrian and Palestinian Territories.”

More recently, reports emerged of reluctance by the UK to issue a diplomatic visa to the PLO’s new representative in London, Ma’en Erekat. In an interview with the London-based Al-Quds Al-Arabi newspaper, PLO Chairman and PA President Mahmoud Abbas implied that the UK was trying to “scale back” the status of the mission and that it was trying to “put restrictions and obstacles. But we told them that we want to be treated like before, to deal with the new ambassador just like the former ambassador.”

The UK would claim that its position has not changed. That it is still for a negotiated settlement based on the two-state solution, which was reiterated by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on his most recent trip to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian territories.

“Israel has first and foremost an absolute right to live in security, and the people of Israel deserve to be safe from terrorism,” Johnson said, stressing Britain’s “rock-like” support of the country. But he later added: “Of course we must also try to remove obstacles to peace and progress such as the settlements”. However, Britain’s most recent positions outlined earlier indicate a change of policy which seems to be moving away from the EU’s position to one more closely aligned with the Trump administration.

That should be very worrying to Palestinians as the US government is taking an unashamedly pro-Israel line, arguing Israel has been “treated unfairly”, that the settlements are merely “unhelpful” rather than illegal and that it should be left to the two sides to come up with a solution, ignoring the asymmetry of the situation. There is no acknowledgement of the history of the conflict and the injustice that befell the Palestinians through the creation of Israel or its continued serial violations of international law, international humanitarian law or even its immediate refusal to adhere to UNSC Resolution 2334 amongst tens of resolutions it has defied. There is no room for any criticism of Israel in Trump’s world.

As the UK seeks trade deals following Brexit, it is looking at the US and Israel as two close allies who might deliver deals quickly after exiting the EU. The powerful pro-Israel lobbies in the US and the UK will bring pressure to bear on the UK to side with Israel rather than with the weak Palestinians. It will celebrate Balfour’s centenary, or “mark it with pride” as the prime minister characterised it, with complete insensitivity to the Palestinians and their plight. In light of this, it is clear that the UK’s policy is moving towards greater protection of Israel while it abandons the Palestinians, just as it did in 1948.

    The situation is the UK thinks there are many important issues and would like the UNHRC to address them rather spend so much of it’s time bothering Israel.

    • TecumsehUnfaced

      After all, it was the British that cursed Palestine by putting the ZioNazi Cult into control.

      You’re weird! You think savage invasions and genocidal country stealing by international thugs means they should sit in peace on their evilly gotten gains and left along when grabbing for more.

      • Fasdunkle

        The British abstained on the vote. By the way, there was no country there, just the an area previously ruled by various imperialist despots. When the caliphates collapsed several countries in the area were created from its ashes. Israel was just one of them.

        You should read a history of the Levant, it’s fascinating

        • TecumsehUnfaced

          You’re weird! How could you possibly know that reading a history of the Levant could be fascinating after upchucking all that garbage?

          • Fasdunkle

            Because unlike you I have read a lot on the history of the Levant so I write from knowledge and not hate

          • TecumsehUnfaced

            Good! You see a need to deny your hatred, as well as your ignorance.

        Talking about Nazi’s, TecumsehUnfaced – the Hypocrite promotes Holocaust denial propaganda.

        TecumsehUnfaced to Robert H. Stiver • a month ago
        “These bullies antagonistic to free inquiry never know when to let well enough along.Here’s a video (of several) of Nicholas Kollerstrom discussing his new book:

        NAM Podcast Episode #7: Nicholas Kollerstrom on Holocaust Deceptions”
        some information regarding your Hero Holocasut Denier Nicholas Kollerstrom you promote
        Kollerstrom began writing material in 2007 for Holocaust-denial publishers. UCL removed Kollerstrom’s honorary fellowship in April 2008 after articles of his appeared on such websites.Nicholas Kollerstrom wrote that one million, not six million, Jews had died in the Holocaust, and that gas chambers had operated in Auschwitz only for the purpose of disinfection. In March 2008 he wrote in Smith’s report, a newsletter published by CODOH’s co-founder Bradley Smith, that Auschwitz had had art classes, a well-stocked library for inmates, and an elegant swimming pool where inmates would sunbathe at weekends while watching water polo

        TecumsehUnfaced is not just another Jew Hater Holocaust denier, he admires the Houthi killers in Yemen that slaughter thousands of Innocent Civilians Children and Women.

        • sailorbill

          I do believe you stated earlier that not being allowed to have free speech and ideas is what the evil Nazis did so what’s happened is he’s stated facts from 6 million to 1 million & there seems to be more evidence that this figure is false. So please let people who have done extensive investigative work into a subject weather it is in your eyes hypocritical, he still has the write to be herd with out this anti-Semitic attack on any one who seems to not agree with the strict Zionist view of the world.

          • Jack

            sailorbill – I don’t discuss with Nazi Jew hater scums of the earth like you.
            If you want to justify Holocaust deniers… your best place is the Nazi stromfront site.
            over there you can ask as you comment in other places “what Holocaust”

            your great idea’s will be endorsed and welcome there.

  • Vinegar Hill

    Despite this “doom and gloom” regarding a supposedly hardening UK position to the conflict there is a ray of sunshine. The UK is leaving the EU and no longer takes a role in decision making thus freeing the Union from Israel’s friend.
    Furthermore, the relationship between the EU and the US has also go cold due to the “crotch grabbing president”and his “diplomatic skills”.
    The EU has now to determine its own policy, free from Israeli pressure groups and US dominance. Once this takes place the economic screws can be turned so as to make Israel compliant to international law and to assist with the legal right to Palestinian soverignty in all of the West Bank.

    • Fasdunkle

      “the legal right to Palestinian soverignty in all of the West Bank”

      When have they wanted that?

    are totally a European people and the European countries feel
    that the Arabs must carry Europe’s own Jewish problem. Why?
    Give me one reason why Lithuanians, Germans, Russians …
    cannot built their own state on their own European land.
    The fraud of ‘coming back’ is over and finished with DNA

  • Helen4Yemen

    “They believe in one state: Greater Israel”

    The Greater Israel plan wants to take the following:
    100% of Jordan
    100% of Lebanon
    100% of Palestine
    50% of Iraq
    50% of Syria
    33% of Saudi Arabia
    a chunk of Kuwait
    a chunk of Turkey
    a chunk of Egypt

    And it would displace 70,000,000 who already live in those areas.

      While the above troll, has NO source and is basing it’s Propaganda on a document published by a clerk called Yinon in some publication.

      Following is the Official Syrian state Policy
      Greater Syrian nation “Syria” referred to a region much larger than the Syrian Arab Republic of today, a region that stretched from the borders of Anatolia to those of Egypt, from the edge of Iraq to the Mediterranean Sea. In terms of today’s states, the Syria of old comprised Syria, Lebanon, Israel, and Jordan, plus the Gaza Strip and Alexandretta. This larger land,

      The government of Hafiz al-Asad adopted Pan-Syrian ideas and made them Syrian state policy.

  • Helen4Yemen

    “the people of Israel deserve to live free from the
    threat of terrorism, with which they have had to
    cope for too long”
    …..
    You means the Lithuanians, the Germans, the Russians…now squatting on Arab land.
    Why are these Europeans still cling to stole land decades where their own European
    land is safe to return to? What do the Arabs owe Lithuanians, the Germans, the Russians…?
    Europe performed its FINAL SOLUTION by sending its own Jews to Palestine making the
    Arabs responsible for its own Jews? Imagine the Yemenis sending the Houthis to Norway
    and making the Norwegian responsible for an entirely Arab problem. That was exactly what
    Europeans did when they made the Arabs to carry Europe’s own Jewish problem.

    THE THEFT OF PALESTINE IS TOTALLY INDEFENSIBLE

    • peepsqueek

      Egyptians were not Arabs, nor did they speak Arabic. Syrians (Assyrians) were not Arabs, nor did they speak Arabic, Moroccans (Berbers) were not Arabs, nor did they speak Arabic, Iraqis (Kurds, Assyrians, Armenians, Azides, etc) were not Arabs nor did they speak Arabic, Libya was not Arab, nor did they speak Arabic, the Sudan (tribal Africa) was not Arab, nor did they speak Arabic, Tunisia was not Arab, nor did they speak Arabic. Why are they all called Arab Countries, belong to the League of “Arab” Nations, and have to live under some form of Islamic Sharia, which is Arabian?

      • sailorbill

        you didn’t answer her question (again)

        • peepsqueek

          1. The question of a Palestinian Arab Statehood was resolved with the 1947 U.N. Partition Resolution (a Jewish State and an “Arab” State living side by side in peace). However, six “Arab” armies collectively invaded the newly formed Jewish State, several times, in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to destroy it. It is ironic that Palestinian “Arabs”, seek statehood now via a path they have rejected for Israel all these years, while still not recognizing Israel’s right to exist.

          2. You do not appear to realize that all these 22 independent “Arab” States are mainly due to the allied powers in the World War I and that the Allies’ victory, helped to bring about the emancipation of all the so called so called Arab territories from 400 years of Turkish rule. If the OttomanTurks and their German allies had won the War, it is improbable that all the Arab territories, with the exception of Palestine, would become independent states.

          • Mahomed Hameed

          • peepsqueek

    THE THEFT OF PALESTINE IS TOTALLY INDEFENSIBLE

    • peepsqueek

      The Land of Israel/Palestine again became an actor in world affairs and a focus of wide interest with Zionism’s successful effort to ensure for Jews a place among the nations of the world with a Jewish state. 400 Years of Ottoman Palestine was mostly an underdeveloped territory with but 250,000 inhabitants in 1800 and only 500,000 in 1900. By 2000, that same land from Lebanon to the Sinai and from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean, accommodated a population that had grown 20-fold to nearly 10,000,000 people. The engine for this remarkable transformation has been the injection of the skills, initiative and capital provided by Zionists and the State of Israel. Before there was a single Israel settlement in the West Bank or Gaza, there was never an attempt to develop a Palestinian Nation, only attempts to destroy the Jewish State.

      In the year 1900, there were only 53 independent states on the planet. Today there 193 independent states, 57 of them are declared Muslim States, all members of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, the largest voting bloc at the UN General Assembly, and there is one tiny Jewish State, with one vote. So while there are/is institutional apartheid, sectarian conflicts, genocides, and massacres going on in the rest of the Middle East, who is getting the lion’s share and narrow focus of attention on these pages?

      To the victims of this history, you have to share the blame with your leadership and collective Arab Nations, who should have committed to building a Palestinian Nation when there was time, space, and opportunity, as opposed to the committing to the destruction of a Jewish Nation.

      • Mahomed Hameed

        There are about 15 million Zionists in the world,most in diaspora. So how many states do you want the Zios to have? They already have America and Britain….. but at least you are one troll that’s using the name of Palestine.

    Letter from President Nasser to President Kennedy 1961

    “He who does not own has made a promise to he who does not deserve. Then both he ” who does not own” and “he who does not deserve” were able, through force and deceit, to usurp the right of the legitimate owner and take away from him what he owned and deserved. This is the true picture of the Balfour declaration: Britain’s pledge, promising in a land she does not own, but is owned by the Arab people of Palestine – a Jewish home in Palestine. On the individual basis, Mr. President, not to speak of the international basis, the picture as such shows a clear case of larceny in which any ordinary court can convict those responsible.”

    • peepsqueek

      Prior to Britain, the land was being bought and sold by the Ottoman Islamic Courts for 400 years. The first enduring Jewish agricultural settlement in the Modern Palestine was founded not by European refugees, but by a group of old-time families, leaving the overcrowded Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem. According to the Turkish census of 1875, by that time Jews already constituted a majority of the population of Jerusalem and by 1905 comprised two-thirds of its citizens. The Encyclopedaedia Britanica of 1910 gives the population figure as 60,000, of who 40,000 were Jews.

      In 1878 they found the village of Petah Tikva in the Sharon Palin, a village that was to become known as the “Mother of Jewish Settlements” in Palestine. Four years later a group of pioneer immigrants from Russia settled in Rishon le-Zion. Other villages followed in rapid succession. All land sales, under the Ottoman Empire, had to be approved by Islamic Courts. Non Muslims paid extra taxes therefore it was good business.

      Most of the land purchases involved large tracts belonging to absentee owners. Virtually all of the the Jerzeel Valley, for example, had belonged to only two people in 1897, the eastern portion to the Turkish Sultan, and the Western part to a rich banker in Syria, Sursuk the Greek. Most of the land had not be cultivated previously and considered uncultivable, This is supported by the Peel Commission Report.

          • peepsqueek

            Please provide the latest documented evidence from a reputable source from the right, left, centrist, independent, and foreign press? When you don’t agree with someone’s views, have the courtesy to provide contradictory evidence.

            Propagandists were reporting all over the internet that no Jews came to work at the World Trade Center on
            9-11, as though someone had the master list of all Jews and called them all the night before, and not a one of them said anything to warn their colleagues and friends, and all stayed quiet for the last 16 years. Do you really buy any of that mess? To many conspiracy theories to mention!

            Then you have to ask yourself why all these 9-11 Arab terrorists were given religious services by their families back in Saudi Arabia, and the Government asked these families not to make a public spectacle of the services for political reasons and to keep a low profile. And I am sure you can remember many more of these sixteen year old reports.

    History PROVES those ASHKENAZIM Jews, INVADED Palestine, backed by British Guns and a piece of paper ,called, in effect, the Balfour Letter, which Britain had NO RIGHT to issue. All those European Jews MUST be returned EXCEPT those who purchased the land they now live on, and purchased FROM WILLING Palestinian Vendors

    Britain MUST pay ALL the expenses of those Jews who are returned to Europe

      Let’s make it the British ruling class, especially Saxe-Colberg&Gotha and the Rothschild.

      • Freespirit

        Of course

    • Helen4Yemen

      Yes, but because every Ashkenzi landed on that land as illegals since no Palestinians never gave permission for the stampede, they all must go, the value of their property should be paid back to them.

        Yeap Ashkenazi Jews are Jews from Judea coz Jews are from Judeah got it get educated or I’ll have to post archeological facts which you wehemingly denie as it doesn’t suit your lying narrative archeology is facts your skirt is mostly propaganda check with Yuri Andropov the Sivet Union KGB boss records of 1964 you Arabs and no other historical proof exists check your last names as source of country of origin what other lies do you keep up your sleeves ?

      • Freespirit

        Of course and that should be understood in my comment by ANY Discerning individual

    • Musya

      Wrong again it’s the other way around. If you claim philistim go to Europe and ask Creat islands to take you back if you claim philishtim

          Suit yourself You don’t have to take my advise, historic facts are the best teacher and boy, how good is the lessen

          • Freespirit

            As a former teacher of 16 years my advice to you is, take remedial course in spelling. Here is your sentence with BOLDFACE highlights of your errors : “Suit yourself You don’t have to take my advise, historic facts are the best teacher and boy, how good is the lessen

            YOU might also get SPELL-CHECK to help you when typing

            I only point this out because you dared to ADVISE me, without advising yourself

            Live and learn

    • Musya

      For a teacher of 16 yrs your are pretty dumb and uneducated whether you can or can’t not spell the problem is not in the spelling but in the eternal lies you post, if you are not educated in the subject of Ashkenazy Jews roosts just admit and shut up, you should be ashamed of yourself I wouldn’t want to have a correct spelling misguided and ignorant to the historic and archeological facts “some teacher” be around my grandchildren you shouldn’t be even in school teaching history revisionism get a good school and learn something or I would have to forward you some historical documents to that extend how do you think the Jews from Judeah showed up in Europe to begin with. You might go to Rome and check out the Titus Arc you fool ok you need a lesson in history not sure what are you teaching but you definitely need a lessen In history!

    Support for Palestinians in western countries originate with these three reasons.
    1) oil
    2) votes (large Muslim populations in countries like France, UK, Germany.
    3) anti semitism.

    With the UK moving towards nationalism, pandering to Muslim base is suicidal. And even though some people don’t support Israels actions in the Middle East, they are seen as the lesser of two evils when compared to Muslim social expansion into the West.

    This trend will continue. Piggy backing Palestinian support from the European continent, by utilizing old anti semetic hold over from natsssi era, will only work if they hate Jews more than Muslims. This was once the case. Slowly changing. I fear Islam made its bed of hate in Europe and now will have to sleep in it. Good job…
