What 'Dispatches' Tonight Won't Tell You..........

By Jonathan Hoffman

Five things I guarantee you won't learn tonight about the all-powerful 'Israel Lobby' in the UK:

- It failed to persuade the UK to veto Goldstone in the UN
- It failed to persuade the UK not to start an arms embargo on Israel
- It failed to persuade the UK Foreign Minister not to call Cast Lead 'disproportionate'...
- It failed to stop the UK financing Breaking The Silence
- It failed to persuade most Labour MPs in 'Labour Friends of Israel' not to keep stumm when it comes to asserting Israel's right to defend its citizens....

If this is "one of the most powerful and influential political lobbies in Britain" then my name is Yasser Arafat ....

Just because they are no good at their job doesn't mean they don't try.

I am sure that the programme will make for uncomfortable viewing and will be riddled with innuendo, but I am still wondering: who funds BICOM and JLC?

So that was it? No allegations of a conspiracy or anything illegal, just a call for transparency. No big deal. Can we all move along now? There's nothing to see here.

You can't win 'em all Mr Arafat!
