Inside Britain's Israel Lobby:

Monday 16 November 2009 @ 8pm
Repeated on: 20 November 2009 @ 3am
Watch @ 4oD: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/dispatches/4od
Warning does contain images of atrocities.


Peter Oborne and James Jones: 'In this pamphlet, published on opendemocracy.net also, we investigate which groups make up the pro-Israel lobby, how they operate, and how they exert influence.

We discover that the Chairman of Britain's major pro-Israel lobby group, BICOM, has business interests in a large settlement in the West Bank east of Jerusalem. These settlements were described recently by Foreign Secretary, David Miliband, as 'illegal' and 'an obstacle to peace'.
We reveal opaque patterns of funding of MPs and candidates by members of a pro-Israel group in Westminster. We pick apart how these groups in Westminster operate and assess whether British foreign policy has been affected. We also speak to journalists about the pressure they face from groups in the UK and abroad.
We conclude that the pro-Israel lobby, in common with other lobbies, has every right to operate in Britain. But it needs to be far more open about how it is funded and what it does. The present obscurity surrounding the funding arrangements and activities of many of the lobby groups can paradoxically give rise to conspiracy theories that have no basis in fact. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/dispatches/articles/inside-britains-israel-lobby-pamphlet
