Truss declares herself a ‘huge Zionist’

Samizdat | October 4, 2022

British Prime Minister Liz Truss described herself as a “huge Zionist” and “huge supporter of Israel” during a meeting with with a pro-Israeli Tory parliamentary group on Sunday.

Truss was a guest of honor at the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) event during the annual Tory Party conference in Birmingham, which she was attending for the first time in her new capacity. Talking to a crowd on the sidelines of the event, she declared her unwavering commitment to the Israeli cause, according to footage of her remarks published on social media.

“As you know I am a huge Zionist, I am a huge supporter of Israel, and I know that we can take the UK-Israel relationship from strength to strength,” she told the cheering attendees.

The CFI itself focused on part of her speech, in which she referred to “threats from authoritarian regimes who don’t believe in freedom and democracy,” against which “two free democracies, the UK and Israel, need to stand shoulder to shoulder.”

Truss’ position on Israel is well known, and she promoted it during her campaign to become the new Conservative leader and prime minister. Among the policy changes that she pledged to effect in office was to review the relocation of her nation’s embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Former US President Donald Trump did the same thing during his tenure in the White House.

The British PM made the same promise last month, during a meeting with her Israeli counterpart Yair Lapid on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York. Pro-Palestinian groups and the Palestinian leadership have condemned the idea.

  1. Does this imply that P.M. Truss will comply with the unnecessary war ideas that Israel
    supporters come up with?

    Here we go again. It seems to be a ‘requirement’ of Western politicians to “Pledge allegiance’ to Israel, soon after gaining office.
    Has she given the same “Unwavering commitment” to the British people? If she has, it will only be to Britain’s “1%”…….

  3. Truss’s commitment to an illegal entity guilty of daily Crimes against Humanity, killing innocent Palestinians, tearing down Palestinian homes, stealing their farmland, depriving them of their water and other basic resources, operating Apartheid, preventing free movement of illegally occupied people plus an endless stream of other offences, shows no commitment to British values, rule of law or democratic principles. The woman is an agent of a foreign power that is under investigation by the ICC. She should be indicted for High Treason, complicity in criminal offences and acting without mandate from the British public. This and her malfeasance over public finances and the distress of the economy should be sufficient to remove her from office immediately.

    • If, and when, she is removed from office, she will be replaced by an Israeli Clone, a Zionist with an expressed love of Israel. They have to be a Zionist to get the job in the first place, thanks to the subterfuge which goes on, behind the scenes, because of the “Friends of Israel” who make up a sizeable percentage of Both sides of the House.

    • ….Then they would replace Truss with another ‘committed Zionist’….The previous leader of the British Labour Party, Jeremy Corbin(?) was gotten rid of(because he was seen as an ‘anti-Semite’) and replaced by a Jewish Barrister……They’ve got both sides of the British Parliament covered (just like in the USA, where nothing changes, no matter who wins an election).
