Clegg Asks Whether Palestine Is Jewish - Jews Whine
Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg stunned audience members at a major speech on antisemitism by asking whether referring to Israel as a Jewish state was “a new idea”.

Mr Clegg invited audience questions after delivering the second annual lecture of the European Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism in Westminster on Monday.

Asked about an article in the Independent referring to the “Jewish lobby”, Mr Clegg responded with a question of his own. He had listened to Binyamin Netanyahu’s foreign policy speech on Sunday in which the Israeli Prime Minister said Palestinians must recognise Israel as a Jewish state.

Mr Clegg did not believe he had heard an Israeli PM refer to the country in such a way before and asked: “Is the idea of Israel as a Jewish state something new?” Giving the vote of thanks, Board of Deputies’ senior vice-president Jonathan Arkush said to applause: “The idea that Israel is a Jewish nation state is certainly not new at all.
“There are over 70 states with an explicit Islamic character and countries such as Britain, which is definitively Christian. Is there not room for one country with a Jewish character?”

A spokesman for the Liberal leader claimed the remark had been taken out of context .“As someone who wishes to see a just and lasting peace in the region, Nick was keen to discuss how this significant change in political rhetoric will affect future negotiations, not least on protecting minority rights within Israel and strengthening the essential Jewish nature of Israel.”

Monroe Palmer, chairman of Lib-Dem Friends of Israel, believed the MP had been questioning whether Mr Netanyahu was suggesting the country should be solely Jewish. “Nick is a very good friend of the Jews,” he stressed.
A reasonable question about vicious scum.


Clegg Might Not Be A Puppet Of The Jews  
Nick Clegg is angry. No, it’s beyond angry. Incandescent almost gets it, but that still doesn’t capture the full fury of the man as he leans forward from his chair in the Liberal Democrat leader’s office in the House of Commons.

The accusation that Mr Clegg had failed to honour his commitment to act against the pro-Palestinian Lib Dem peer Jenny Tonge if she made antisemitic remarks on his watch has hit something very close to his political soul. “The very suggestion that I might explicitly or tacitly give cover for racism, I find politically abhorrent and personally deeply offensive,” he says.

The charge that he had rowed back on the undertaking to deal with Baroness Tonge, made last month by Douglas Murray of the Centre for Social Cohesion (and repeated in the JC), followed meetings in Syria in March between Baroness Tonge and the leaders of Hamas and Islamic Jihad. Murray also alleged that in July 2008 she told IslamExpo: “How can we stop antisemitism if they [Israel] keep treating the Palestinians like this?”

The Lib Dem leader says that his own mixed parentage makes him deeply sensitive to issues of racial oppression. He talks with great emotion, at times so quickly that he slips out of his usually careful pattern of speech: “It’s perhaps worth repeating my own background: half-Dutch, quarter-Russian, quarter -British. My mother spent several years in a prisoner of war camp during the war. My family has been disfigured by revolution and war on both sides of my family. I’m married to a Spaniard.”

There is no racism in me: that’s why I am a liberal

At this point he breaks off with a sigh of exasperation: “There is simply not a shred of racism in me, as a person whose whole family is formed by flight from persecution, from different people in different generations. It’s what I am. It’s one of the reason I am a liberal.”

Mr Clegg is clear that he will not silence his most controversial parliamentary colleague for recent comments about Hamas. (She called Hamas leader Khaled Mashal “shrewd, plausible and actually very likeable” during her Syrian visit.)

“Can the comments of Jenny Tonge in the recent past be described as racist? No. You can call them wrong, you can call them daft, you can call them misguided. But that’s not the point. Can you call them racist? They are not.”

But he goes further: “I have to say, and I know this will be enormously unpopular for many readers of the Jewish Chronicle, but the sad thing is that Jenny Tonge says many other things that are worth listening to and are completely obscured by what has become polemicised. It does a disservice to her.”

When I ask whether he thinks the presence of Baroness Tonge as a prominent Lib Dem will lose him significant numbers of Jewish voters at the next election, he side-steps, and instead emphasises that she does not speak on the Middle East for the Lib Dems and that she will never do so.

There is little doubt that Mr Clegg feels he has a job of work to do to convince the Jewish community. Interestingly, he came to his interview with the JC straight from a meeting with the Board of Deputies.

He is keen to clarify his position on the Israel-Palestinian conflict. “The starting point has got to be the full recognition of Israel, security for Israeli citizens and a viable Palestinian state. Do I think that the objective of peace and two communities living side by side, in their own secure nationhood, can be pursued by the terrorism of Hamas or the deployment of disproportionate force by the Israeli military? No, I don’t.”

The Lib Dem leader describes himself as a supporter of the doctrine of “liberal interventionism” and claims not to be squeamish about the use of force by a country to protect its citizens. But he remains convinced that the nature of Israel’s response did not serve its best interests. “It seems to me to run the risk of strengthening the hands of extremists within the Palestinian community,” he says.

On the issue of community relations in the UK, Mr Clegg’s position could be described as classically liberal. He recognises that the political class had been “complacent” in its attitude to established Muslim organisations and its failure to pick up on the growth of home-grown radicalism. But he is not an advocate of excluding any particular organisations depending on their position on the Islamist spectrum. As long as organisations respect the rule of law, principles of equality and respect for human rights, they should be part of the conversation.

“Once you have accepted those parameters,” he says, “it is really important in a liberal society to accept and tolerate a very wide cacophony of views, however abhorrent.”

Mr Clegg’s experience of talking to his own constituents in Sheffield has convinced him that there is a potentially serious problem in the Muslim community, where the older generation is losing control of its young men.

“If you drive those young men underground you are playing with real danger,” he says. “You have to keep them in the field of play arguing. If you don’t, you risk them falling into a parallel universe.”

At the same time he is wise to the failings of the more extreme forms of multiculturalism, which argue that ethnic communities should be allowed to exist in isolation from mainstream society: “My liberal conception of liberalism and tolerance is not to allow generations of woman to stay at home and speak no English and have no contact with the outside world.”

He believes the answer to extremism lies in communities themselves rather than within Whitehall task forces or crackdowns which wipe away freedoms built up over centuries: “Community politics is the antidote to extremism, surely that’s far better than trashing traditional British civil liberties.”

Nick Clegg is not the first leader of his party in recent times who has believed the Liberals’ moment has come. But he is the first to articulate it with any intellectual rigour.

Some of his thinking is rehearsed in a pamphlet for the left-leaning thinktank Demos, published this week, in which he argues that the Labour Party’s state-dominated model has failed to deliver on everything from social justice and extremism to the environment and the economy.

“The Labour Party is on the wrong side of the contemporary challenges of Britain — the basic Labour reflex is that everything can be fixed from Whitehall. And that no longer works. The whole next stage of progressive politics is about letting go rather than holding on,” he says.

By the end of our interview, Mr Clegg’s fury has abated. In its place is something his party is often accused of lacking. It is something close to real political passion.

Nick Clegg ex Wiki
Clegg is multilingual: he speaks English, French, Dutch, German, and Spanish.[14][15][16] His background has informed his politics. He says, "There is simply not a shred of racism in me, as a person whose whole family is formed by flight from persecution, from different people in different generations. It's what I am. It's one of the reasons I am a liberal."[17] His Dutch mother instilled in him "a degree of scepticism about the entrenched class configurations in British society".[18] He has said of languages that "The danger is that we [in the UK] can afford to be lazy about languages, because they all want to speak English – English is the most useful, the global language bar none. But I don’t think we should allow that luxury to be a sort of alibi not to learn languages." [19] 

Clegg was educated at two independent schools: at Caldicott School in Farnham Royal in South Buckinghamshire, where he was joint Head Prefect in 1980,[20][21][22][23] and later at Westminster School in Central London. As a 16-year-old exchange student in Munich, he and a friend drunkenly set fire to what he called "the leading collection of cacti in Germany". When news of the incident was reported during his time as Liberal Democrat home affairs spokesman, Clegg said he was "not proud" of it.[24] He was arrested and not formally charged, but performed a kind of community service.[25]

He spent a gap year working as a skiing instructor in Austria, before going on to Cambridge University in 1986, where he studied Archaeology and Anthropology at Robinson College.[26] He was active in the student theatre at Cambridge, acting in a play about AIDS and under director Sam Mendes.[26][27][28] He was also captain of his college's tennis team, and campaigned for the human rights organisation Survival International.[29] Clegg spent the summer of 1989 as an office junior in Postipankki bank in Helsinki.[30]

It has been alleged that Clegg joined the Cambridge University Conservative Association between 1986 and 1987. Clegg has maintained he has "no recollection of that whatsoever". However, Conservative MP Greg Hands has a record of CUCA members for 1986-1987, and Clegg's name appears on the list. Hands noted that "for the avoidance of any doubt, there was only one 'N Clegg' at Robinson College ... [he] is listed in the 'Robinson College Record', under 'Freshmen 1986'.[31][32][33][34] He graduated with an upper second class honours (2:1) degree in social anthropology.[35]

After university, he was awarded a scholarship to study for a year at the University of Minnesota, where he wrote a thesis on the political philosophy of the Deep Green movement. He then moved to New York City, where he worked as an intern under Christopher Hitchens at The Nation, a progressive liberal magazine, where he fact checked Hitchens' articles.[36][36][37]

Clegg next moved to Brussels, where he worked alongside Guy Spier for six months as a trainee in the G24 co-ordination unit which delivered aid to the countries of the former Soviet Union. After the internship he took a second master's degree at the College of Europe in Bruges, a university for European studies in Belgium, where he met his wife, Miriam González Durántez, a lawyer and the daughter of a Spanish senator.[28] Nick Clegg is an alumnus of the "Mozart Promotion" (1991–92) of the College of Europe.
Another dodgy one.


Clegg Knew Nothing About Paedophile Pervert - Allegedly [ 15 April 2014 ]
The Lib Dem leader, who had issued glowing tributes to the 29-stone MP, said yesterday that he was too young at the time of Smith’s vile acts to have known about them.

Liberal Party Leader Panders To Jews With Money18 May 2014 ]
Nick Clegg, the laughable Lib Dem leader, probably the most pathetic character in the history of British politics, has done it again. In a desperate attempt to appease some Jewish donators, he produced a shameless endorsement of Jewish politics.

I guess that someone within the dysfunctional Lib Dem orbit better advise Clegg that Zionists do not like their subordinates to manifestly bend over. They somehow prefer their Shabbos Goyim to operate delicately and in a clandestine manner.
Money talks. So do politicians. Bribery is crime but political donations are, perhaps different?
PS Looking at this was recommended by Gilad Atzmon,, a Jew who is, perhaps honest?
