Report: Former British Foreign Secretary Peddles “Jewish Control” Trope in Parliament


jack-strawFormer Israeli Knesset Member Einat Wilf wrote on her Facebook page Tuesday: : “I nearly fell off my rickety British chair today when former UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw spoke at the Round Table Global Diplomatic Forum in the British House of Commons. Listing the greatest obstacles to peace, he said ‘unlimited’ funds available to Jewish organizations and AIPAC in the U.S. are used to control and divert American policy in the region and that Germany’s ‘obsession’ with defending Israel were the problem.”

The trope about Jewish money and control is recognized as anti-Semitism by the European Monitoring Center on Racism and Xenophobia’s Working Definition: “Making mendacious, dehumanizing, demonizing, or stereotypical allegations about Jews as such or the power of Jews as a collective – such as, especially but not exclusively, the myth about a world Jewish conspiracy or of Jews controlling the media, economy, government or other societal institutions.”
