Why the Western liberal elites hate Benjamin Netanyahu


IF YOU’VE been watching the situation in Israel, you’ll have noticed a contradiction. On the one hand, the Americans, the British, Australian and EU politicians and officials have been queuing up for photo opportunities on the Gaza border to express their solidarity against the horrific Hamas attack of October 7. On the other hand, in almost every case and the passage of a few days – even minutes – the same people effectively blamed Israel in general and PM Benjamin Netanyahu in particular for causing the problem by oppressing the ‘poor Palestinians’ and failing to provide Statehood.

Confused? Let me explain.

Since a free and fair democratic election in November 2022, Netanyahu has led Israel’s coalition government. One of his primary campaign goals was to clip the wings of Israel’s Supreme Court, which shockingly has greater powers than its elected government, as expertly explained by Eugene Kontorovich.

By seeking to restore the democratic balance over unelected judges, Netanyahu drew the ire of Israel’s liberal, secular anti-Zionist elite – a group I estimate at over 95 per cent in its MSM (read Times of Israel, Jerusalem Post or watch any TV outlet), many retired Israel Defense Forces (IDF) generals, senior security intel and backroom oligarchs. You may have seen reports of the mass demos in Tel Aviv’s streets last year protesting against Netanyahu’s ‘attack on democracy’, when actually he was defending it. Ironic. What you probably didn’t see, because the MSM suppressed the reports, were massive numbers of Israelis on the streets supporting the PM and his government’s move against the judges. I monitor the Israeli TV channel i24NEWS daily and witness this censorship and maligning. This demonstrates what we’ve seen for ourselves all over the West in the covid era – the gap between the people and the establishment elite, as evidenced by ‘experts’ drawn from whatever source fits the establishment agenda, with no balancing counter-argument given airtime. 

The Americans jumped on the bandwagon too. Biden sought to interfere in Netanyahu’s stand against Israel’s Supreme Court. Shockingly, Biden refused to invite him to the White House, something no American President to my knowledge has ever done. 

Come October 7 the US Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken, tripped over himself to get to Israel. Remember how the Carrier Battle Group was immediately deployed to the eastern Mediterranean to ‘threaten Iran’, and Biden’s threat, ‘don’t!’ supposedly directed at Iran? Hmm. We witness Blinken’s regular shuttle diplomacy, publicly voicing support for Israel’s war while in the next breath imposing more restrictions on how the IDF should prosecute it – more aid, smaller bombs, less force, no all-out war against Hezbollah. You’d almost think he wanted Hamas to survive.

Obama’s Middle East policy was to boost Iran and weaken Israel, as evidenced by the billions of dollars sent on pallets to Tehran and the approval of its nuclear programme. Check this link for that and – with the benefit of hindsight – try not to laugh (or cry) out loud. See Caroline Glick’s masterful analysis here. Meanwhile, Biden cancelled Trump’s sanctions while authorising America’s vast buffer stocks of weapons to be moved from Israel to Ukraine. 

Some commentators, myself included, saw that battle fleet deployment not as supporting Israel, but tying Israel’s hands against a pre-emptive strike against Hezbollah, which every day since 7/10, has launched volleys of missiles against Israel’s north, resulting in the permanent evacuation of 80,000 residents from the border towns. Yes, it’s true Israel would probably prefer to fight one battle at a time – to destroy Hamas – but it was unprecedented that America should so publicly meddle in Israel’s right to autonomous, unilateral self-defence.  

Blinken is on his sixth visit to Israel and you can bet a large sum he’ll offer mealy-mouthed ‘support’, whilst imposing new threats against Israel’s war fighting, placing IDF soldiers at increased risk in close combat, pressuring for more re-supply of Hamas aka ‘Gazan aid’, with veiled (rumoured) threats of diminishing ammunition deliveries. Anecdotal reports on i24 sourced from Israeli intelligence suggest Hamas steals 60 per cent of the aid convoys, thus prolonging the war.

The British, under WEF-sponsored ‘Lord’ Cameron (did you vote for him?), the EU (did anyone vote for them?), the Australians (led by Foreign Affairs Minister, Penny Wong), Spain, South Africa all ape this behaviour. 

Cameron has now gone public on a potential unilateral recognition of a Palestinian State when there is a ceasefire. That won’t happen, but he’s happy that the threat has been issued. The European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, too, has stated that Israel should, if necessary, be forced to accept the same. A lesson from history, by the way: no nation had as much opportunity as Britain to assist the birth of post-Holocaust Israel, yet did so much to oppose it. Look then what happened to the Empire. Be careful when you mess with Israel.

So, and I apologise for taking a long run-up at this, finally to the question: why do these globalist elites hate Netanyahu? Simple.

He stands like a rock in the face of an existential threat to his nation, attacked by Iran’s proxies from without and secular Israeli anti-Zionists (who hate the idea of a Biblical Jewish state) from within.

Like every Western nation state the UK is under attack too. Granted, not (yet) like October 7. But consider how, with an 80-seat majority, a ‘Conservative’ globalist government has overseen and facilitated the three-pronged assault on your identity, liberty and personal wealth through covidism, greenism and wokism, with mass immigration the secret sauce. 

From top to bottom – from its unelected, usurping PM Sunak and Foreign Secretary David Cameron, through its ‘wokist’ and ‘progressive left’ Home Office, Foreign Office, Civil Service and police ‘service’, in fact every arm of state, leveraging power from unelected judges, foreign and domestic, is bent on crushing our heritage, values, Christian traditions. 

The biggest insult of all is that you are paying for all this madness with the greatest tax burden in 75 years, including the RNLI taxi service, 4-star accommodation and cell phones for the military age ‘economic’ migrants who flood our country. Bank this: Sunak says one thing, does another. It is deliberate, intentional and planned. The globalists won’t stop unless we stop them. 

Political correctness (wokism) is not a political issue but a spiritual battle. It is the secular humanist elite’s religion: see the destruction it has wrought on our society. It is war every bit as real as on the streets of Gaza. 

And it is also why they hate the traditional, nationalist Netanyahu, in my opinion one of the finest post-war leaders, who out of necessity is acting militarily to expunge the threat to his nation. His detractors demand he cede – reward terror with Statehood (the Palestinian Authority pays stipends of American dollars to families of the October 7 terrorists under the ‘pay for slay’ policy) – and be disappeared quietly so he can (like Trump, Bolsonaro, Khan and others) be locked away while the globalist project proceeds unopposed. Nation state democracy remains its greatest threat. That is they hate Netanyhu and why Israel’s war is our war.
