Previously, the SUNDAY SCREENING previewed a four-part investigative series called The Lobby, which was withdrawn from by Al Jazeera’s programming after intense pressure from political forces in Washington and Tel Aviv. The series revealed in detail many of the covert activities of The Lobby, and exposed a host of underhanded and deceptive tactics employed in the United States with the prime directive of manipulating US political and public opinion in favor of Israel and to influence Washington’s foreign policy decisions.
The following four-part series covers the Israel Lobby in Britain. In this film investigators expose an Israeli operation to infiltrate and influence UK youth and student groups, including the National Union of Students (NUS), and the Labour Party – with the ultimate goal of eliminating any political opposition to Israel in mainstream British politics. The investigation shows how The Lobby and its political operatives conceived of and then promoted the intentionally misleading concept of “antisemitism in the Labour Party” in order discredit Her Majesty’s loyal opposition and ultimately try and bring down party leader Jeremy Corbyn. The film reaches a dramatic conclusion after a top Israeli operative is exposed planning to “take down” a list British Labour MPs.Watch:
