In some bigoted circles, hatred of Muslims has been all the rage for some time – a problematic habit that is often assumed by far-right wing Zionists, with a good example being provided by the activism of Tommy Robinson-supporter Robert Festenstein who is a senior figure representing the Board of Deputies of Jews.
Robinson’s own close relations with far-right Zionists has of course never been much of a secret, and earlier this week the US-based Middle East Forum (MEF)– which was founded by the well-funded neoconservative Zionist Daniel Pipes – made the following announcement on their web site:
“MEF is sponsoring and organizing the second “Free Tommy Robinson” gathering in London on July 14. MEF previously provided all the funding and helped organized the first “Free Tommy Robinson” event held June 9 in London.”
The Forum added that they were “arranging for U.S. Congressman Paul Gosar (Republican of Arizona) to travel to London to speak alongside the Dutch political leader Geert Wilders, and others.” (July 8, 2018)
Notably just a few weeks earlier the Middle East Forum also announced that they were seeking applicants to fill a new job vacancy writing:
“The Middle East Forum seeks a full-time Israel Director for its Israel Victory Project (IVP), which holds that a Palestinian defeat is a precondition to resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict. This means ditching the “peace process” in favor of Israel imposing its will on its enemies.”
One wonders whether Tommy Robinson is contemplating applying for the post from prison? Certainly he would seem to have the relevant contacts and the experience to be able to help the far-right Zionists impose their will on their enemies.
