In a ‘landmark speech’ according to The Times, British PM David Cameron promised to single out “Muslim conspiracy theorists” who believe that “Jews exercise malevolent power, that 9/11was inspired by the Israeli intelligence agency, Mossad, and that Britain allowed 7/7 because it wanted an anti Muslim backlash.” PM Cameron vowed to tackle ideas “hostile” to British liberal values but I am baffled – if I understand it correctly, according to Cameron, everyone in Britain except Muslims, is allowed to discuss issues of Jewish power or whether 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Here, Cameron might be slightly confused. Liberal values suggest the complete opposite. We, and by we, I mean all Brits, are supposed to be equal in the eyes of the law. What David Cameron was preaching seems like Israeli and Zionist values.
I guess that as a non Muslim, I am still entitled to remind PM Cameron that 80% of his Conservative MPs are members of the pro Israel Jewish lobby, Conservative Friends of Israel: a Zionist lobby group that advocated interventionism and pushed Britain into global conflicts.
If Cameron truly wants to uphold British values of equality, perhaps he should prohibit any discussion whatsoever of Jewish matters. Some European countries have tried such tactics with the Holocaust and it has completely backfired.
