BORIS JOHNSON WITH MIKE POMPEO
“Is this a case of jumping from the proverbial frying pan into the fire?”
— Rixon Stewart
As Boris Johnson has just moved into Number Ten he has enacted a sweeping cabinet purge. Seventeen of the Ministers appointed by Theresa May have been asked to stand down or been sacked.
Johnson is now replacing them with loyalists and like-minded Brexiters.
Sajid Javid is the new Chancellor of the Exchequer and Dominic Raab will takeover as Foreign Secretary.
However, one appointment resonates rather ominously. Disgraced former International Development Secretary, Pritti Patel, has now been appointed as Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s new Home Secretary.
Priti Patel has has just been appointed UK Home Secretary.

While we would not argue with Patel’s position on migration and asylum, we do have misgivings about her on one thing.
Patel had been sacked as International Development Secretary in 2017, after it was revealed that she had been holding secret meetings with Israeli officials and government ministers. We do not know what was discussed in these meetings but some would see holding “secret meetings” with representatives of a foreign government as tantamount to treason.
Yet Boris Johnson has just appointed just such an individual to a key position. Even though holding SECRET TALKS with Israeli government officials should have been enough to exclude her from any future post, particularly one as important as Home Secretary
While it’s true, as Home Secretary Patel will not have direct control over UK foreign policy, her remit will include policing and national security. This will enable her to oversee the passage of new legislation on issues such as terrorism and, of course, “anti-Semitism”.
While Patel’s past dealings should have prevented her posting, Boris Johnson himself makes no effort to hide where his sympathies lie. Indeed, he is on record as saying that he is a “passionate Zionist” who “loves” Israel. So his appointment of another Brexiter and a low-key Zionist enabler should come as no big surprise.
What this says about who is really in control of British politics is another question though.
Like Presidents Clinton, Bush, Obama and Trump such displays of homage to Israel are now EXPECTED of Western leaders. Boris Johnson’s stepmother Jenny, the second wife of his father Stanley, is the stepdaughter of Edward Sieff, the former chairman of Marks & Spencer. In other words Johnson is part of a closely connected Jewish-British elite.
Does this mean that instead of being forced to accept dictates from Brussels, Britain will now be more beholden to the Council of Deputies and Tel Aviv?
Time will tell but what is happening in the UK right now mirrors what happened when Trump entered the White House. He had campaigned on promises to draw back U.S. military involvements overseas; together with promises to “make America great again”. In much the same way that Johnson has pledged to protect Britain’s interests in pursuing Brexit.
This all echoes an earlier age with calls to “patriotism”.
However, once in office Trump appointed ardent Zionists like Bolton and Pompeo to key positions. These men are committed to serving Israel’s interests, over and above America’s, and often with the blood of U.S. soldiers, as in Syria.
Neither Bolton nor Pompeo are in any sense of the word true “patriots”.
With tensions growing in the Persian Gulf we suspect that Johnson-Patel will now be more likely to throw their weight behind Bolton-Pompeo for a full-on military confrontation with Iran.
