If supporters of Palestinians share a platform with someone who is a
supporter of Hamas or Hezbollah the Zionists cry blue murder despite the fact that both organisations represent the most downtrodden and oppressed sectors in Gaza and Lebanon.  Organisations that have a mass base and whose main purpose is to defend their own people from Israel’s terrorist attacks.  The Zionists make
an inordinate fuss about it.  Look at the flack
Jeremy Corbyn took for describing speakers from both organisations as his
friends when they addressed a meeting.

Now compare this with the silence when Jonathan Arkush, the loud mouthed Tory President of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and Matthew Offord MP , addressed a small Zionist rally which included the openly neo-Nazi Jewish Defence League, which was set up by the late
Rabbi Meir Kahane.  Kahane was elected to
Israel’s Knesset on a platform of forcibly expelling all Arabs from Israel and
the Occupied Territories.  A believer in Jewish
racial purity he advocated 5 years imprisonment for an Arab male having sexual
relations with a Jewish woman.

Today Lehava, an openly fascist organisation whose Kahanist leader, Benny
Gopstein advocates
burning mosques and churches, is funded by the Israeli state without any
mention of this fact by the western media. 
Lehava too campaigns against relationships between Jews and Arabs and
beats up any Arab caught in a ‘Jewish’ area of Jerusalem.

At the pro-Israeli rally that Arkush spoke at and which the Community
Security Trust (CST) stewarded, members of the JDL (which is banned in the USA
as a terrorist group, having tried to blow up their opponents) openly paraded
in Kach shirts.  Arkush and the CST could
not have helped but see these Judeo-Nazis but they did absolutely nothing.  Standing alongside them was Jonathan Hoffman,
ex co-vice chair of the Zionist Federation, though Hoffman is quite happy to
demonstrate with both the JDL and the English Defence League.
This is Jonathan Arkush at Grosvenor Sq. on Sunday calling for the banning of Hizbollah flag while addressing Roberta Moore and Robert de Jong of the Kahanist JDL wearing Kahane t-shirts. Kahans Chai is regarded as a terrorist organisation in the US, Canada and ISRAEL!
Note also that despite the fascist audience, the slogans on the posters
were the same – Peace not Hate – this from people quite happy to support the most
extreme and murderous section of the settlers. 
This demonstrates the hypocrisy of the Zionists when they talk of peace –
what they really mean is the peace of the graveyard that holds dead Palestinians.

Yet more evidence that British Zionist leaders are chummy with all manner
of fascists as the ‘anti-fascist’ CST under the leadership of Dave Rich, holds
hands with these people.

Matthew
Offord, a Conservative lawmaker, and Jonathan Arkush, President of the Board of
Deputies of British Jews, spoke at a small pro-Israel rally in London where
members of a Jewish extremist group were present on Sunday.
The
member of parliament and Arkush were photographed on Sunday at the same rally
as Robert De
Jonge
, the Jewish
Defence League UK
activist who was convicted
of assault
last year after an attack on two participants in a Palestine
literary festival in 2014.

Also
at the rally was Roberta
Moore
, another JDL UK figure. She was initially convicted of assault and
possession of an offensive weapon, but the conviction was overturned
on appeal
.
Although
currently legal in the UK, the JDL was classified
as a terrorist group by the FBI in 2001
The group adheres to the views of
Rabbi Meir Kahane,
who founded the ultranationalist Kach group outlawed by the Israeli government.

Though
De Jonge and Moore did not have an organizational role in the march, the pair
positioned themselves at the front of the rally and appeared to go
unchallenged.
The
Board of Deputies did not reply to a request for comment.

“Stop the Hate”
The
Stop
the Hate: Stand with Israel
” march was organized by the Zionist
Federation
, Sussex Friends
of Israel
and the Israel
Advocacy Movement
as a counterdemonstration to the annual pro-Palestinian
Al-Quds day march.
De
Jonge and Moore appear to have stood at the front of a crowd of pro-Israel
demonstrators for the duration of a short speech by Conservative lawmaker and Conservative
Friends of Israel
member Matthew Offord.
They
were also present for a 15-minute speech by Hillel Neuer of UN Watch, an
anti-Palestinian propaganda organization.
Throughout
this time, both De Jonge and Moore were wearing T-shirts bearing the yellow
fist symbol associated with the JDL. At least three others were photographed
wearing the same T-shirt.

Moore
can clearly be seen wearing the JDL T-shirt on at
11:10 in the video of Neuer’s speech
, standing directly to his left.
During
his speech, Offord approvingly noted the presence of Labour Friends
of Israel’s
Michael McCann, a former MP who now heads a body called Israel-Britain
Alliance
.
Roberta Moore listens to UN Watch’s Hillel Neuer speak.
In
the early part of the video
of Offord’s speech
, Jonathan Arkush, the president of the Board of
Deputies of British Jews
, appears to be directly in De Jonge and Moore’s
line of vision. It is not clear whether Arkush saw them.
Support for Breivik

Meir
Kahane, a former Israeli parliamentarian and the founder of Kach, the Israeli
affiliate of the JDL, proposed the forced expulsion of all Palestinians from
all of historic Palestine, including the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The
JDL UK website dubs Kahane’s master bomb maker Victor Vancier a
Jewish
hero
.”
Vancier
heads the Jewish Task Force, another small, extremist Zionist group which De
Jonge supports, and was convicted of waging a bombing
campaign
in New York and Washington DC in the 1980s. Chosen by Kahane to
lead the JDL in New York in 1984, and later made East Coast boss, Vancier, also
known as Chaim ben Pesach, spent five and a half years in federal prison.
De
Jonge, who also uses the aliases Robert Bartholomeus and Robert Bartholomew,
was convicted of assault and sentenced
in March
last year.
Moore,
born in Brazil, previously founded the “Jewish division” of the anti-Muslim
street movement the English Defence League before leaving
the group in 2011
. In 2012, she expressed
support for Anders
Behring Breivik
who killed 77 people in Norway the previous July.
