    “Long Tentacles of Israel” Trying to Buy the General Election Say Labour MPs

    Two Labour MPs have accused the Conservatives of being too closely associated with — and funded by — Israel.



    One backbencher alleged that there were “long tentacles of Israel” in this country and accused the Jewish state of trying to “buy” the election.

    Another, Sir Gerald Kaufman, the veteran Labour MP, said Lord Ashcroft, the wealthy Tory donor, owned one part of the party and “Jewish millionaires” the other. The comments drew condemnation from all sides of politics, and the Jewish press.

    Martin Linton, the chairman of Labour Friends of Palestine, told a meeting at the House of Commons: “There are long tentacles of Israel in this country who are funding election campaigns and putting money into the British political system for their own ends.”

    Mr Linton has a majority of 163 and Jewish bloggers suggested that his comments might lead his Battersea constituents to vote against him.

    Mr Linton last night said he did not recognise the “tentacles” comment, but admitted he had said that Israelis with dual nationalities were funding British parties.

    Wow! This is a huge surprise to me - who would have thought it?

    Full marks to Gerald Kaufmann, although I'm sure he owes much of his own career to the Jewish lobby and I'd have had far more respect for him had he said this when he was a cabinet member some years ago!

    Shows how much Labour are courting with the anti-semitic muslims if you ask me.
