Britain’s Jews (and Jews everywhere) can breath a sigh of relief, now that the vile anti-Semite Jeremy Corbyn has been trounced. Prime Minister Boris Johnson now has a strong majority, so he will work to protect Britain’s Jews from the anti-Israel Left. He will also come down hard on the BDS Movement, which has flourished in Britain for close to a decade. In addition, security co-operation and trade between Israel and the UK will continue to boom and break records. This week has been a bad one for the BDS Movement. #BDSFail!
By Jerusalem Post, December 13th, 2019:
For the vast majority in Britain, this election had to do with Brexit. That was the main issue of the campaign, that is what this election was all about.
Corbyn’s loss is Jews and Israel’s gain
“Boris Johnson‘s election gamble poised to pay off,” the headline on Sky News’ website just after midnight read as the exit polls came in from the critical British election.
The BBC’s headline: “Conservatives on course to win majority – exit poll.”
For the Jewish people, however, a headline reflecting their initial reaction would run something like this: “Corbyn loses, Jews world-over heave a huge sigh of relief.”
For the vast majority in Britain, this election had to do with Brexit. That was the main issue of the campaign, that is what this election was all about. It was a Brexit-dominated, Brexit-focused, Brexit-centered campaign.
But for Jews in the United Kingdom and elsewhere, the issue was different, the stakes were higher and the election was about something even more significant than Brexit: it was about whether antisemitism would be mainlined and an antisemite would become Britain’s prime minister.
That he didn’t, that the Hamas and Hezbollah supporting Corbyn – a man who allowed rampant antisemitism to flourish in the Labour Party – appears to have suffered a thunderous loss, is a reason for celebration among Jews not only in Britain, even if they are opposed to the Brexit that Johnson supports.
Not only does this mean that there is a future for British Jewry – something that many British Jews had said might not have been certain had Corbyn won – but it also means that Israel has dodged a bullet.
Congratulations my friend @BorisJohnson on your historic victory.
This is a great day for the people of Great Britain and for the friendship between us. 🇮🇱🇬🇧 pic.twitter.com/GUVSxo8tHi
