The extent of Zionist lobby’s influence on the British establishment has come to light following Prime Minister David Cameron’s attempts to force the European Union (EU) into putting more pressure on Lebanese resistance movement Hezbollah by imposition of new sanctions against the movement, according to media reports.
David Cameron’s attempts to force the EU into pressuring Hezbollah come as British observers believe the Zionist lobby enjoys a big domination over the UK’s political and media decision-makers, Al Alam correspondent reported from London.
Jeremy Corbin MP told the Al-Alam reporter that the imposition of sanctions on Hezbollah or any other groups in the region serves nobody’s interests.
“Instead of such measures, we should try to end the sufferings of the Palestinians”, Corbin said.
British expert Jim Brown also told Al-Alam that the UK government’s recent measures against Hezbollah are closely linked to the Zionist lobby and the U.S. pressures.
Brown stressed that bringing up this issue by the UK government, once again, makes clear the extent of Zionist lobby’s influence on the British governmental and media organizations.
Meanwhile, Andrew Mary, a British political author and analyst, told Al-Alam correspondent: “Hezbollah represents Lebanese resistance. I am opposed to imposing sanctions on this group because it means putting pressure on Lebanon and violating its sovereignty. In fact, British policies suffer a major problem, which has not changed since the era of its colonial arrogance.”
