Inside Britain’s Israel Lobby

124

A 2009 Channel 4 dispatches documentary which investigates one of the most powerful political lobbies in the United Kingdom, one which is working to support the interests of the state of Israel. The secretive group, which is known as the pro-Israel lobby, asserts huge influence over the decision making of British politicians in the House of Parliament and in the House of Lords.

The political commentator Peter Osborne sets out to determine just who these people are, how they are funded (lobbying costs money), and just how much influence they have over British politicians. Who are the wealthy individuals bankrolling the lobbyists, what is their agenda, and just how much fear do British politicians have of crossing them? The ultimate objective of the pro-Israel lobby is to ensure that British foreign policy decisions are favourable to the interests of Israel.
