Middle East

Asked about Lord Levy’s current role in the Middle East the PMS confirmed that his role had not changed including the fact that we did not brief on his activity as that was the most effective way for him to do his job. The PMS confirmed that the Prime Minister had established his intention in travelling to the region in the coming period. When asked about the Foreign Secretary’s travel plans the PMS referred people to the Foreign Office.

Asked about any concerns over British equipment found in Hezbollah strong holds the PMS said that the MoD were establishing the facts of exactly what had been found and as the situation was unclear the MoD would respond in due course and not before. When asked about weaponry found in Hezbollah hands from Syrian and Iranian origins and that the Government had suggested that it was the fault of those countries; therefore if the weapons found are British is it the fault of the British Government, PMS said that people should wait for the facts to be established.

  1. Lord Frigging Levy? Well we’re guaranteed impartiality there then……………….

    According to the Jerusalem Post this man is "undoubtedly the head of British Jewry". How is it POSSIBLE that Great Britain would appoint a JEW, who incidentally is persona non gratis in Saudi and Jordan, to act as a broker of peace between Israel and an Islamic Arab nation? Are they taking the piss? Or does this government simply just not care about impartiality any more? Can you imagine the reaction in Israel if the British envoy had a name like Ahmed?! There’d be outraged squeals of anti-Semitism, and Israel would no doubt use even that as an excuse to get stuck in again! The hypocricy and double standards are simply breathtaking. Even more breathtaking is the mind-numbing stupidity of the sheeple who believe the official line which is, despite every shred of evidence to the contrary, that Israel can do no wrong.
