  • - AND WELCOME TO THE WATCHMAN FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 00:01:19.260 --> 00:01:22.270
  • FOLKS, WE KNOW THAT ISRAEL AND THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:01:22.290 --> 00:01:26.010
  • HAVE A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP THAT'S ONLY GROWING STRONGER.
  • 00:01:26.030 --> 00:01:29.130
  • YET ISRAEL ALSO HAS OTHER VERY IMPORTANT ALLIANCES
  • 00:01:29.150 --> 00:01:33.180
  • AROUND THE WORLD AND ONE OF THEM IS ABOUT TO BE TESTED.
  • 00:01:33.200 --> 00:01:37.120
  • ON DECEMBER 12TH, IN LESS THAN TWO WEEKS TIME,
  • 00:01:37.140 --> 00:01:40.170
  • GREAT BRITAIN WILL HOLD A GENERAL ELECTION
  • 00:01:40.190 --> 00:01:43.190
  • AND ITS OUTCOME COULD HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT
  • 00:01:43.210 --> 00:01:46.200
  • ON RELATIONS BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE U.K.
  • 00:01:46.220 --> 00:01:50.010
  • INCUMBENT PRIME MINISTER BORIS JOHNSON WILL TAKE
  • 00:01:50.030 --> 00:01:52.260
  • ON THE LEADER OF THE LABOUR PARTY, AN OPENLY ANTI-ISRAEL
  • 00:01:52.280 --> 00:01:57.060
  • RADICAL NAMED JEREMY CORBYN.
  • 00:01:57.080 --> 00:02:00.030
  • NOW CORBYN HAS BEEN CALLED AN ANTI-SEMITE
  • 00:02:00.050 --> 00:02:02.160
  • BY MEMBERS OF HIS OWN PARTY.
  • 00:02:02.180 --> 00:02:04.220
  • SOME OF WHOM HAVE LEFT LABOUR OVER CORBYN'S EMBRACE
  • 00:02:04.240 --> 00:02:07.280
  • OF ANTI-SEMITES.
  • 00:02:08.000 --> 00:02:09.060
  • HE'S CALLED THE TERROR GROUPS,
  • 00:02:09.080 --> 00:02:10.270
  • HAMAS AND HEZBOLLAH, HIS "FRIENDS".
  • 00:02:10.290 --> 00:02:14.010
  • AND HE EVEN SHARED A PLATFORM WITH A HAMAS LEADER IN 2012.
  • 00:02:14.030 --> 00:02:19.020
  • IN 2014, CORBYN ATTENDED A CEREMONY IN TUNISIA
  • 00:02:19.040 --> 00:02:22.200
  • HONORING THE PALESTINIAN TERRORIST BEHIND THE 1972
  • 00:02:22.220 --> 00:02:27.010
  • MUNICH OLYMPIC MASSACRE IN WHICH 11 ISRAELI ATHLETES
  • 00:02:27.030 --> 00:02:30.240
  • WERE MURDERED.
  • 00:02:30.260 --> 00:02:32.080
  • THE POSSIBILITY THAT CORBYN COULD BECOME GREAT BRITAIN'S
  • 00:02:32.100 --> 00:02:35.020
  • NEXT PRIME MINISTER SHOULD SET OFF ALARM BELLS
  • 00:02:35.040 --> 00:02:38.090
  • FOR ANYONE WHO SUPPORTS ISRAEL.
  • 00:02:38.110 --> 00:02:40.270
  • BRITAIN HAS BEEN A STRONG ALLY OF ISRAEL FOR YEARS
  • 00:02:40.290 --> 00:02:44.110
  • BUT AS PRIME MINISTER YOU CAN BET JEREMY CORBYN
  • 00:02:44.130 --> 00:02:47.240
  • WOULD DO EVERYTHING IN HIS POWER TO CHANGE THAT.
  • 00:02:47.260 --> 00:02:51.120
  • ANTI-SEMITIC INCIDENTS ARE ALREADY AT AN ALL TIME HIGH
  • 00:02:51.140 --> 00:02:54.260
  • IN GREAT BRITAIN AND IF SOMEONE LIKE CORBYN
  • 00:02:54.280 --> 00:02:57.060
  • CAME TO POWER, JEW-HATERS WOULD BE EMBOLDENED EVEN MORE.
  • 00:02:57.080 --> 00:03:01.140
  • WITH ALL OF THIS DEVELOPING WE DECIDED TO HEAD TO LONDON
  • 00:03:01.160 --> 00:03:04.260
  • WHERE WE SAT DOWN RECENTLY WITH ISRAEL'S AMBASSADOR
  • 00:03:04.280 --> 00:03:07.190
  • TO THE UNITED KINGDOM, MARK REGEV TO LEARN MORE
  • 00:03:07.210 --> 00:03:10.120
  • ABOUT ISRAEL AND THE U.K.
  • 00:03:10.140 --> 00:03:12.260
  • TAKE A LOOK.
  • 00:03:12.280 --> 00:03:14.130
  • WELL, AMBASSADOR REGEV THANKS SO MUCH FOR JOINING

  • 00:03:18.150 --> 00:03:19.200
  • - IT'S A PLEASURE HAVING YOU, A REAL PLEASURE.
  • 00:03:19.220 --> 00:03:21.060
  • - YEAH, IT'S GREAT TO BE BACK WITH YOU, AMBASSADOR.
  • 00:03:21.080 --> 00:03:22.240
  • HEY, WE KNOW OBVIOUSLY THAT THE U.S. AND ISRAEL
  • 00:03:22.260 --> 00:03:25.260
  • HAVE THIS SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP BUT THE U.K.
  • 00:03:25.280 --> 00:03:28.180
  • AND ISRAEL ALSO HAVE A VERY CRUCIAL RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:03:28.200 --> 00:03:31.090
  • TELL US, AND YOU'VE SEEN THIS UP CLOSE IN YOUR ROLE
  • 00:03:31.110 --> 00:03:33.140
  • OBVIOUSLY AS THE AMBASSADOR HERE IN THE U.K. FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:03:33.160 --> 00:03:36.150
  • TELL US ABOUT THAT ISRAEL/U.K. BOND.
  • 00:03:36.170 --> 00:03:38.230
  • WHY IT'S SO STRONG AND WHY THIS IS SUCH AN IMPORTANT
  • 00:03:38.250 --> 00:03:41.200
  • ALLIANCE, NOT ONLY FOR THE JEWISH STATE
  • 00:03:41.220 --> 00:03:43.140
  • BUT FOR THE U.K.
  • 00:03:43.160 --> 00:03:44.260
  • - SO FIRST OF ALL ERICK, WHAT YOU SAID UP FRONT
  • 00:03:44.280 --> 00:03:47.090
  • IS 100% CORRECT.
  • 00:03:47.110 --> 00:03:49.120
  • ISRAEL AND THE UNITED STATES
  • 00:03:49.140 --> 00:03:50.290
  • HAVE A VERY SPECIAL PARTNERSHIP, A VERY SPECIAL
  • 00:03:51.010 --> 00:03:53.240
  • RELATIONSHIP AND ISRAEL HAS NO BETTER FRIEND
  • 00:03:53.260 --> 00:03:55.290
  • THAN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:03:56.010 --> 00:03:57.110
  • HAVING SAID THAT, THE BRITISH ARE GOOD FRIENDS, TOO
  • 00:03:57.130 --> 00:04:00.180
  • AND WE ENJOY A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH THE BRITISH.
  • 00:04:00.200 --> 00:04:03.160
  • WE COOPERATE WITH THEM IN DEFENSE MATTERS.
  • 00:04:03.180 --> 00:04:05.210
  • WE'VE GOT A GOOD TRADE RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:04:05.230 --> 00:04:07.090
  • WE'VE GOT A GOOD POLITICAL DIALOGUE
  • 00:04:07.110 --> 00:04:09.120
  • AND THE TRUTH IS, AS YOU KNOW BETTER THAN MOST
  • 00:04:09.140 --> 00:04:12.010
  • THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN BRITAIN AND ISRAEL
  • 00:04:12.030 --> 00:04:14.020
  • GOES BACK DECADES IF NOT CENTURIES.
  • 00:04:14.040 --> 00:04:17.160
  • - ABSOLUTELY, I THINK OF THAT LONG-STANDING RELATIONSHIP,
  • 00:04:17.180 --> 00:04:20.230
  • AMBASSADOR. I THINK OF THE 19TH CENTURY.
  • 00:04:20.250 --> 00:04:23.230
  • YOU COULD SAY THE MODERN CHRISTIAN ZIONIST MOVEMENT
  • 00:04:23.250 --> 00:04:26.110
  • WAS REALLY BORN HERE IN GREAT BRITAIN.
  • 00:04:26.130 --> 00:04:27.260
  • YOU THINK OF LORD ALFRED BALFOUR, WILLIAM HECKLER,
  • 00:04:27.280 --> 00:04:30.140
  • ALL OF THESE PIVOTAL FIGURES IN THE ZIONIST MOVEMENT
  • 00:04:30.160 --> 00:04:34.010
  • IT WAS RIGHT HERE IN GREAT BRITAIN.
  • 00:04:34.030 --> 00:04:35.040
  • - CORRECT, 100%.
  • 00:04:35.060 --> 00:04:36.170
  • CHRISTIAN ZIONISM IS IN MANY WAYS BORN IN THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:04:36.190 --> 00:04:39.130
  • THERE'S A WONDERFUL BOOK BY THE HISTORIAN,
  • 00:04:39.150 --> 00:04:41.270
  • IT'S AN OLD BOOK, IT'S NOT A NEW BOOK BY BARBARA TUCHMAN
  • 00:04:41.290 --> 00:04:44.040
  • AND SHE TALKS ABOUT THE IDEOLOGICAL FOUNDATIONS
  • 00:04:44.060 --> 00:04:47.210
  • FOR THE CHRISTIAN ZIONISM.
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:49.270
  • AND ULTIMATELY THE IDEA THAT THE JEWISH PEOPLE
  • 00:04:49.290 --> 00:04:53.230
  • SHOULD BE FREE TO RETURN TO THEIR HOMELAND
  • 00:04:53.250 --> 00:04:56.080
  • TO BE ABLE TO HAVE NATIONAL SELF DETERMINATION,
  • 00:04:56.100 --> 00:05:00.120
  • TO BE A FREE PEOPLE IN OUR HISTORIC LAND,
  • 00:05:00.140 --> 00:05:02.260
  • THAT'S AN IDEAL THAT WAS SUPPORTED BY MANY, MANY
  • 00:05:02.280 --> 00:05:06.140
  • GOOD PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:05:06.160 --> 00:05:07.230
  • - EVEN MORE CRUCIAL TODAY THAT WE HAVE CHRISTIANS
  • 00:05:07.250 --> 00:05:10.120
  • STANDING FOR ISRAEL HERE IN THE U.K. BECAUSE WE DO
  • 00:05:10.140 --> 00:05:12.290
  • HAVE A RISE IN ANTI-SEMITISM HERE IN GREAT BRITAIN.
  • 00:05:13.010 --> 00:05:16.060
  • ANTI-SEMITIC INCIDENTS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH.
  • 00:05:16.080 --> 00:05:19.050
  • WE EVEN HAVE ONE POLITICAL PARTY HERE, THE LABOUR PARTY
  • 00:05:19.070 --> 00:05:21.180
  • THAT'S BEEN KIND OF EMBROILED
  • 00:05:21.200 --> 00:05:23.020
  • IN AN ANTI-SEMITISM CONTROVERSY.
  • 00:05:23.040 --> 00:05:26.040
  • COULD YOU TALK MORE ABOUT THAT AMBASSADOR,
  • 00:05:26.060 --> 00:05:27.210
  • YOU'RE HERE IN THIS PIVOTAL ROLE, YOU SEE THIS UP CLOSE.
  • 00:05:27.230 --> 00:05:30.090
  • TELL US ABOUT THAT PROBLEM HERE IN THE U.K.
  • 00:05:30.110 --> 00:05:32.200
  • AND REALLY ACROSS WESTERN EUROPE.
  • 00:05:32.220 --> 00:05:34.060
  • - LOOK, IT'S TERRIBLY WORRYING, ESPECIALLY TROUBLING
  • 00:05:34.080 --> 00:05:38.040
  • FOR THE LOCAL U.K. JEWISH COMMUNITY.
  • 00:05:38.060 --> 00:05:40.130
  • WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT IN THE 21ST CENTURY,
  • 00:05:40.150 --> 00:05:43.190
  • IN THIS COUNTRY, IN BRITAIN AND YOU KNOW THEY SAY
  • 00:05:43.210 --> 00:05:46.100
  • THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT IS THE MOTHER OF PARLIAMENTS
  • 00:05:46.120 --> 00:05:48.170
  • AND SO MANY IDEAS THAT INSPIRED THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
  • 00:05:48.190 --> 00:05:51.160
  • OF 1776 WERE IDEAS THAT WERE BORN BRITISH LIBERAL
  • 00:05:51.180 --> 00:05:55.220
  • DEMOCRATIC IDEAS, FREEDOM, SEPARATION OF POWERS.
  • 00:05:55.240 --> 00:05:58.270
  • WHO WOULD HAVE THOUGHT THAT IN THIS COUNTRY
  • 00:05:58.290 --> 00:06:00.250
  • IN THE 21ST CENTURY, YOU'D SEE THE REBIRTH OF ANTI-SEMITISM.
  • 00:06:00.270 --> 00:06:06.060
  • IT'S TERRIBLE.
  • 00:06:06.080 --> 00:06:07.120
  • - ONE OF THE TACTICS USED BY THE ANTI-SEMITES
  • 00:06:07.140 --> 00:06:09.230
  • AND THE ANTI-ISRAEL FORCES RIGHT HERE IN THE WEST
  • 00:06:09.250 --> 00:06:12.130
  • IS BDS, BOYCOTT DIVEST FROM, SANCTION THE JEWISH STATE.
  • 00:06:12.150 --> 00:06:17.030
  • TELL US ABOUT THE DANGER OF BDS.
  • 00:06:17.050 --> 00:06:19.040
  • IT'S KIND OF THE DESTRUCTION OF ISRAEL BY OTHER MEANS
  • 00:06:19.060 --> 00:06:22.060
  • IT SEEMS.
  • 00:06:22.080 --> 00:06:23.130
  • TELL US ABOUT THE DANGER OF BDS, HOW PREVALENT
  • 00:06:23.150 --> 00:06:25.140
  • IS IT HERE IN THE U.K. AND HOW IS ISRAEL FIGHTING BACK HERE?
  • 00:06:25.160 --> 00:06:29.110
  • THE FIRST THING YOU NEED TO KNOW ERICK
  • 00:06:29.130 --> 00:06:30.180
  • IS THAT THESE VOICES OF HATE ARE A FAILURE
  • 00:06:30.200 --> 00:06:33.240
  • IN THE REAL WORLD.
  • 00:06:33.260 --> 00:06:35.010
  • THEY CALL FOR NOT BUYING ISRAELI PRODUCTS,
  • 00:06:35.030 --> 00:06:37.090
  • I WANT TO TELL YOU AND YOUR VIEWER SHOULD KNOW AS WELL,
  • 00:06:37.110 --> 00:06:40.080
  • OUR NUMBER ONE TRADING PARTNER ON THE PLANET
  • 00:06:40.100 --> 00:06:43.070
  • IS OF COURSE THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
  • 00:06:43.090 --> 00:06:45.090
  • BUT NUMBER TWO AND THREE INCLUDE THIS COUNTRY.
  • 00:06:45.110 --> 00:06:48.270
  • SO ALL THOSE PEOPLE ARE CALLING NOT TO BUY ISRAELI
  • 00:06:48.290 --> 00:06:51.130
  • PRODUCTS, GUESS WHAT, THEY'RE NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE LISTENING.
  • 00:06:51.150 --> 00:06:53.250
  • THEY'RE BUYING ISRAELI PRODUCTS.
  • 00:06:53.270 --> 00:06:55.180
  • LAST YEAR IN 2018, OUR THIRD LARGEST TRADING PARTNER
  • 00:06:55.200 --> 00:07:00.070
  • ON THE PLANET WERE THE BRITS AND THIS YEAR
  • 00:07:00.090 --> 00:07:04.010
  • I THINK ACCORDING TO THE NUMBERS WE'RE GOING TO SEE
  • 00:07:04.030 --> 00:07:05.150
  • THE BRITONS MOVE FROM THREE TO TWO, TO THE SECOND PLACE.
  • 00:07:05.170 --> 00:07:09.040
  • SO THESE PEOPLE CALLING FOR A BOYCOTT OF ISRAELI PRODUCTS
  • 00:07:09.060 --> 00:07:11.270
  • THEY ARE SPEAKING HATRED AND A LOT OF PEOPLE APPARENTLY
  • 00:07:11.290 --> 00:07:14.060
  • ARE NOT LISTENING.
  • 00:07:14.080 --> 00:07:15.210
  • BUT WE'VE GOTTA FIGHT THEM AS YOU GOTTA FIGHT ALL HATRED.
  • 00:07:15.230 --> 00:07:18.200
  • I MEAN I JUST THINK THAT THIS MOVEMENT IS A MODERN
  • 00:07:18.220 --> 00:07:21.130
  • MANIFESTATION OF GOOD OLD FASHIONED ANTI-SEMITISM .
  • 00:07:21.150 --> 00:07:24.250
  • THAT'S WHAT IT IS.
  • 00:07:24.270 --> 00:07:26.030
  • - YEAH AMBASSADOR SEEMS TODAY THAT THE CLOAK
  • 00:07:26.050 --> 00:07:28.210
  • OF ANTI-SEMITISM IS NOW ANTI-ZIONISM.
  • 00:07:28.230 --> 00:07:31.160
  • THAT'S THE NEW TERM FOR ANTI-SEMITES THAT THEY'RE USING.
  • 00:07:31.180 --> 00:07:34.000
  • - I AGREE 100%.
  • 00:07:34.020 --> 00:07:35.190
  • WE DON'T HATE JEWS, WE JUST THINK THAT ALL THE ISRAELIS
  • 00:07:35.210 --> 00:07:37.200
  • SHOULD BE KILLED, WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:07:37.220 --> 00:07:39.140
  • [ERICK LAUGHS]
  • 00:07:39.160 --> 00:07:40.250
  • - SPEAKING OF WHICH, WHILE WE'RE KIND OF SURVEYING
  • 00:07:40.270 --> 00:07:42.200
  • THE THREATS AND THE SHARED THREATS THAT ISRAEL
  • 00:07:42.220 --> 00:07:44.200
  • AND THE U.K. ARE FACING AND THE UNITED STATES,
  • 00:07:44.220 --> 00:07:47.110
  • THE IRANIAN REGIME.
  • 00:07:47.130 --> 00:07:50.020
  • LOOKING TO INCREASE THEIR URANIUM ENRICHMENT NOW,
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:53.200
  • DEFYING THE WEST AND THE IRAN NUCLEAR DEAL.
  • 00:07:53.220 --> 00:07:56.270
  • TALK ABOUT WHY THE IRANIAN REGIME IS NOT JUST A PROBLEM
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:08:00.100
  • FOR ISRAEL AND THE BROADER MIDDLE EAST,
  • 00:08:00.120 --> 00:08:02.250
  • IT'S A PROBLEM FOR THE WEST AND REALLY ALL
  • 00:08:02.270 --> 00:08:05.230
  • OF JUDEO-CHRISTIAN WESTERN CIVILIZATION, INCLUDING THE U.K.
  • 00:08:05.250 --> 00:08:10.110
  • - LOOK IT'S CLEAR, AND YOU'RE 100% CORRECT ERICK.
  • 00:08:10.130 --> 00:08:13.120
  • IT'S NOT JUST A PROBLEM FOR ISRAEL AND OUR ARAB NEIGHBORS
  • 00:08:13.140 --> 00:08:16.020
  • WHO ARE ALL THREATENED BY THE IRANIANS,
  • 00:08:16.040 --> 00:08:18.110
  • IT'S A PROBLEM FOR THE PLANET.
  • 00:08:18.130 --> 00:08:20.070
  • THIS IS A REGIME THAT WANTS TO EXPORT WHAT THEY CALL
  • 00:08:20.090 --> 00:08:23.290
  • THE ISLAMIC REVOLUTION.
  • 00:08:24.010 --> 00:08:26.020
  • AND IT'S A THREAT TO US ALL.
  • 00:08:26.040 --> 00:08:27.240
  • I'LL GIVE YOU JUST TWO VERY QUICK EXAMPLES.
  • 00:08:27.260 --> 00:08:29.270
  • WE HAD DOCUMENTED INCIDENTS OVER THE LAST YEAR
  • 00:08:29.290 --> 00:08:33.020
  • OF IRANIAN GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS BEING INVOLVED
  • 00:08:33.040 --> 00:08:35.170
  • IN TERRORISM ON EUROPEAN SOIL, DOCUMENTED INCIDENTS.
  • 00:08:35.190 --> 00:08:41.130
  • SO THIS ISN'T SOMETHING THAT MIGHT HAPPEN OR COULD HAPPEN,
  • 00:08:41.150 --> 00:08:44.050
  • THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS HAPPENING.
  • 00:08:44.070 --> 00:08:46.140
  • SECONDLY, THE IRANIANS ARE BUILDING
  • 00:08:46.160 --> 00:08:49.080
  • LONG-RANGE BALLISTIC MISSILES.
  • 00:08:49.100 --> 00:08:52.080
  • LET ME BE FRANK, THEY'VE ALREADY GOT MISSILES
  • 00:08:52.100 --> 00:08:54.000
  • THAT CAN HIT ISRAEL.
  • 00:08:54.020 --> 00:08:55.090
  • THEY'VE ALREADY GOT MISSILES
  • 00:08:55.110 --> 00:08:56.070
  • THAT CAN HIT OUR ARAB NEIGHBORS.
  • 00:08:56.090 --> 00:08:58.040
  • WHY ARE THEY BUILDING MISSILES WITH RANGES
  • 00:08:58.060 --> 00:09:00.090
  • TO REACH FAR AND BEYOND, TO REACH EUROPE,
  • 00:09:00.110 --> 00:09:02.240
  • MAYBE EVEN AMERICA ONE DAY.
  • 00:09:02.260 --> 00:09:04.200
  • BECAUSE THEY SEE THE WESTERN WORLD AS THEIR ENEMY
  • 00:09:04.220 --> 00:09:08.190
  • AND TO IGNORE THAT IS TO IGNORE REALITY.
  • 00:09:08.210 --> 00:09:11.110
  • TO IGNORE THAT IS TO BE LIKE THE PROVERBIAL OSTRICH
  • 00:09:11.130 --> 00:09:13.180
  • AND PUTTING YOUR HEAD IN THE SAND.
  • 00:09:13.200 --> 00:09:15.060
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE SAFER BY IGNORING THE THREATS.
  • 00:09:15.080 --> 00:09:18.260
  • - AND THEY HAVE A VERY DANGEROUS PROXY OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:09:18.280 --> 00:09:21.040
  • IN THE FORM OF HEZBOLLAH, WHICH ALSO HAS GLOBAL REACH,
  • 00:09:21.060 --> 00:09:24.120
  • EVEN IN THE WESTERN HEMISPHERE.
  • 00:09:24.140 --> 00:09:26.010
  • AMBASSADOR LAST QUESTION.
  • 00:09:26.030 --> 00:09:27.280
  • YOU'VE BEEN DOING THIS FOR SOME TIME AS A GREAT
  • 00:09:28.000 --> 00:09:30.150
  • AND ELOQUENT SPOKESMAN FOR THE JEWISH STATE
  • 00:09:30.170 --> 00:09:32.260
  • IN THE MEDIA NOW IN A DIPLOMATIC ROLE.
  • 00:09:32.280 --> 00:09:36.130
  • WHAT DRIVES YOU?
  • 00:09:36.150 --> 00:09:37.270
  • IT'S A DEMANDING JOB, YOU'RE A FAMILY MAN.
  • 00:09:37.290 --> 00:09:40.030
  • WE'VE TALKED OFF CAMERA, WHAT MOTIVATES YOU
  • 00:09:40.050 --> 00:09:43.000
  • TO DO WHAT YOU DO AND TO DEDICATE YOUR LIFE TO SERVICE
  • 00:09:43.020 --> 00:09:46.110
  • TO THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:09:46.130 --> 00:09:47.220
  • - I AM A VERY VERY PROUD ISRAELI.
  • 00:09:47.240 --> 00:09:51.170
  • AND FOR ME TO HAVE THE POSITIONS I'VE HAD
  • 00:09:51.190 --> 00:09:54.090
  • I FEEL HONORED THAT THE STATE OF ISRAEL
  • 00:09:54.110 --> 00:09:56.190
  • HAS ALLOWED ME TO SERVE IN THE POSITIONS I'VE HELD.
  • 00:09:56.210 --> 00:10:00.050
  • I ULTIMATELY BELIEVE IN MY SOUL IN THE ESSENTIAL JUSTICE
  • 00:10:00.070 --> 00:10:06.240
  • OF ISRAEL'S CASE OF THE CAUSE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:10:06.260 --> 00:10:10.020
  • IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT, WE WERE A PEOPLE, THE JEWISH PEOPLE,
  • 00:10:10.040 --> 00:10:12.160
  • WE WERE SCATTERED ACROSS THE PLANET.
  • 00:10:12.180 --> 00:10:15.000
  • WE WERE PERSECUTED.
  • 00:10:15.020 --> 00:10:16.040
  • WE WERE DISCRIMINATED AGAINST.
  • 00:10:16.060 --> 00:10:18.050
  • WE FACED VIOLENCE AND OPPRESSION AND EVEN GENOCIDE.
  • 00:10:18.070 --> 00:10:21.130
  • WHEN WE RETURNED HOME, WHEN WE ESTABLISHED OUR INDEPENDENCE,
  • 00:10:21.150 --> 00:10:25.260
  • OUR NATIONHOOD IN OUR HISTORIC HOMELAND
  • 00:10:25.280 --> 00:10:28.260
  • THAT IS A MODERN MIRACLE.
  • 00:10:28.280 --> 00:10:31.040
  • THAT'S SOMETHING THAT I THINK WE CAN ALL GET EXCITED ABOUT.
  • 00:10:31.060 --> 00:10:34.120
  • AND IN A REGION THAT IS PLAGUED BY DIFFERENT FORMS
  • 00:10:34.140 --> 00:10:37.110
  • OF AUTOCRACY, DESPOTISM, TOTALITARIANISM ACROSS
  • 00:10:37.130 --> 00:10:40.270
  • THE MIDDLE EAST, ISRAEL TODAY STANDS OUT AS A BEACON
  • 00:10:40.290 --> 00:10:44.170
  • OF FREEDOM AND TOLERANCE.
  • 00:10:44.190 --> 00:10:47.220
  • A BEACON OF DEMOCRACY.
  • 00:10:47.240 --> 00:10:50.010
  • AND I THINK THOSE ARE REASONS WHY EVERYONE ONE
  • 00:10:50.030 --> 00:10:52.200
  • OF FAITH IN HUMANITY, EVERYONE WHO BELIEVES IN FREEDOM,
  • 00:10:52.220 --> 00:10:59.090
  • THEY SHOULD STAND BY ISRAEL TOO.
  • 00:10:59.110 --> 00:11:01.100
  • BECAUSE WE REALLY ARE, I BELIEVE, AN ISLAND OF FREEDOM
  • 00:11:01.120 --> 00:11:05.030
  • AND TOLERANCE IN A VERY, VERY DIFFICULT REGION.
  • 00:11:05.050 --> 00:11:07.180
  • - AMBASSADOR WELL SAID, THANK YOU VERY MUCH.
  • 00:11:07.200 --> 00:11:09.100

  • 00:11:10.090 --> 00:11:11.010
  • - THANKS AMBASSADOR.

  • [DRAMATIC MUSIC]
  • 00:12:35.230 --> 00:12:40.040
  • - WELCOME BACK TO THE WATCHMAN FROM JERUSALEM.
  • 00:12:40.060 --> 00:12:43.010
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT THE MODERN CHRISTIAN ZIONIST MOVEMENT
  • 00:12:43.030 --> 00:12:46.060
  • WAS BORN IN GREAT BRITAIN?
  • 00:12:46.080 --> 00:12:48.040
  • THAT'S RIGHT, IN THE 19TH AND EARLY 20TH CENTURIES,
  • 00:12:48.060 --> 00:12:51.240
  • MEN LIKE LORD ALFRED BALFOUR AND WILLIAM HECKLER
  • 00:12:51.260 --> 00:12:55.110
  • WERE INFLUENTIAL ADVOCATES FOR THE REBIRTH
  • 00:12:55.130 --> 00:12:58.070
  • OF THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:12:58.090 --> 00:12:59.180
  • TODAY, CUFI-UK IS CARRYING ON THAT PROUD TRADITION.
  • 00:12:59.200 --> 00:13:04.020
  • AND AS ANTI-SEMITISM GROWS IN THE U.K.,
  • 00:13:04.040 --> 00:13:06.270
  • CUFI'S PRESENCE THERE IS NEEDED NOW MORE THAN EVER.
  • 00:13:06.290 --> 00:13:11.000
  • TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT WE'RE DOING ABOUT IT.
  • 00:13:11.020 --> 00:13:14.190
  • [SOMBER MUSIC]
  • 00:13:14.210 --> 00:13:19.120
  • - IN 2014, WE HAD THE BIGGEST RISE IN ANTI-SEMITISM
  • 00:13:19.140 --> 00:13:24.080
  • HERE IN THE U.K. ON RECORD.
  • 00:13:24.100 --> 00:13:26.220
  • IT JUST LEPT 100%, 100% INCIDENTS INCREASED.
  • 00:13:26.240 --> 00:13:31.240
  • SO WE FELT ENOUGH'S ENOUGH REALLY.
  • 00:13:31.260 --> 00:13:34.020
  • SO WE WENT TO PASTOR HAGEE AND SAID LOOK,
  • 00:13:34.040 --> 00:13:36.060
  • WE'VE BEEN WAITING FOR CUFI TO START,
  • 00:13:36.080 --> 00:13:38.240
  • WHAT ABOUT US STARTING IT?
  • 00:13:38.260 --> 00:13:40.120
  • AND HE SAID, "GO FOR IT."
  • 00:13:40.140 --> 00:13:42.170
  • ISRAEL IS OUR ROOT AND WE GOTTA GET BACK TO OUR ROOTS.
  • 00:13:42.190 --> 00:13:46.070
  • SO THAT WAS THE MAIN THING FOR US.
  • 00:13:46.090 --> 00:13:48.120
  • WE FELT COMPELLED REALLY TO BE INVOLVED WITH ISRAEL
  • 00:13:48.140 --> 00:13:51.160
  • AND WHATEVER WE DID GOD JUST BLESSED US.
  • 00:13:51.180 --> 00:13:54.080
  • CHRISTIAN ZIONIST WERE PARAMOUNT IN ACTUALLY HELPING
  • 00:13:54.100 --> 00:13:57.080
  • TO ESTABLISH THE STATE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:13:57.100 --> 00:14:00.190
  • - LORD BALFOUR AT THE TIME WAS ONE OF MANY CHRISTIAN
  • 00:14:00.210 --> 00:14:04.030
  • ZIONISTS IN THE GOVERNMENT AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:14:04.050 --> 00:14:06.270
  • AND THEY SAW THE NEED FOR ISRAEL TO HAVE THEIR OWN LAND
  • 00:14:06.290 --> 00:14:11.080
  • AND THIS WAS 1919.
  • 00:14:11.100 --> 00:14:14.230
  • WE'RE TALKING ABOUT WAY BEFORE THE HOLOCAUST AND WAY BEFORE
  • 00:14:14.250 --> 00:14:17.260
  • THOSE TIMES.
  • 00:14:17.280 --> 00:14:19.070
  • SO THERE'S A STRONG ZIONIST MOVEMENT AT THAT TIME.
  • 00:14:19.090 --> 00:14:22.130
  • BUT, THE PRO-PALESTINIAN, WHICH IS REALLY JUST ANTI-ISRAEL
  • 00:14:22.150 --> 00:14:27.040
  • THOSE GROUPS HAVE BEEN VERY STRONG HERE.
  • 00:14:27.060 --> 00:14:30.040
  • BIG INFLUENCE BOTH IN THE SECULAR SOCIETY
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:32.090
  • BUT ALSO WITHIN THE CHURCH.
  • 00:14:32.110 --> 00:14:34.140
  • AND SO THERE'S A REAL NEED FOR CHRISTIANS TO GET THE MESSAGE
  • 00:14:34.160 --> 00:14:37.200
  • OUT THAT ISRAEL IS STILL PART OF GOD'S PLAN.
  • 00:14:37.220 --> 00:14:41.180
  • MANY CHRISTIANS TODAY BELIEVE THE CHURCH HAS REPLACED
  • 00:14:41.200 --> 00:14:45.170
  • ISRAEL IN THE ECONOMY OF GOD.
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:47.240
  • THAT IS NOT THE CASE AND WE'VE GOT
  • 00:14:47.260 --> 00:14:50.000
  • TO GET THAT MESSAGE ACROSS.
  • 00:14:50.020 --> 00:14:51.270
  • YES, WE HAVE CONCERN FOR THE PALESTINIANS UNDER HAMAS
  • 00:14:51.290 --> 00:14:55.180
  • AND THE SUFFERING THAT THEY HAVE.
  • 00:14:55.200 --> 00:14:57.270
  • BUT THAT'S NOT ISRAEL'S FAULT AND THAT'S WHAT COMES
  • 00:14:57.290 --> 00:15:00.170
  • ACROSS SO STRONGLY HERE IN THE U.K.
  • 00:15:00.190 --> 00:15:03.040
  • WE HAVE THIS AGENDA GOING ON WHERE THE ANTI-ISRAEL LOBBY
  • 00:15:03.060 --> 00:15:07.020
  • IS VERY, VERY STRONG.
  • 00:15:07.040 --> 00:15:09.100
  • BUT IT'S ONLY BECAUSE THEY'VE BEEN UNCHALLENGED THUS FAR.
  • 00:15:09.120 --> 00:15:12.060
  • CHRISTIANS IN THE MAY HAVE NEVER GOT INVOLVED
  • 00:15:12.080 --> 00:15:14.040
  • IN POLITICS, THEY'VE NEVER SPOKEN OUT.
  • 00:15:14.060 --> 00:15:16.200
  • AND SO WE HAVE TO RAISE UP A VOICE,
  • 00:15:16.220 --> 00:15:19.060
  • WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE THAT VOICE IS HEARD.
  • 00:15:19.080 --> 00:15:22.150
  • MANY OF THE CHRISTIAN ORGANIZATIONS DON'T HAVE
  • 00:15:22.170 --> 00:15:24.210
  • THAT POLITICAL VOICE.
  • 00:15:24.230 --> 00:15:26.110
  • AND WE'RE TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE MORE AWARE
  • 00:15:26.130 --> 00:15:30.010
  • AND MAKE PEOPLE MORE ADVOCATES FOR ISRAEL.
  • 00:15:30.030 --> 00:15:33.070
  • WE'RE GETTING A MESSAGE ACROSS THAT PEOPLE AREN'T
  • 00:15:33.090 --> 00:15:35.190
  • GETTING ANYWHERE ELSE.
  • 00:15:35.210 --> 00:15:37.080
  • SO THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TRYING TO DO WITH CUFI-UK.
  • 00:15:37.100 --> 00:15:40.150
  • WE PROBABLY ARE THE LARGEST CHRISTIAN ADVOCACY GROUP
  • 00:15:40.170 --> 00:15:43.170
  • FOR ISRAEL HERE IN THE U.K.
  • 00:15:43.190 --> 00:15:46.000
  • BUT WE WORK WITH THE JEWISH COMMUNITY.
  • 00:15:46.020 --> 00:15:48.040
  • WE WERE VERY STRONG RIGHT FROM THE VERY BEGINNING
  • 00:15:48.060 --> 00:15:50.150
  • THAT WE WANTED TO WORK ALONGSIDE THE JEWISH COMMUNITY.
  • 00:15:50.170 --> 00:15:53.230
  • AND SO WE WORK WITH THE BOARD OF DEPUTY'S,
  • 00:15:53.250 --> 00:15:55.250
  • WITH PRO-ISRAEL ORGANIZATIONS WHICH ARE JEWISH FOCUSED
  • 00:15:55.270 --> 00:16:00.110
  • AND MOSTLY THEY'VE ACCEPTED US.
  • 00:16:00.130 --> 00:16:02.130
  • WE WORK WITH THEM.
  • 00:16:02.150 --> 00:16:03.110
  • WE'RE IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THEM.
  • 00:16:03.130 --> 00:16:05.090
  • AND THAT'S THE STRONG PART OF OUR MESSAGE
  • 00:16:05.110 --> 00:16:08.240
  • THAT WE ARE CHRISTIANS AND JEWS COMING TOGETHER
  • 00:16:08.260 --> 00:16:11.090
  • FOR ONE COMMON PURPOSE WHICH IS ISRAEL.
  • 00:16:11.110 --> 00:16:13.190
  • MOST THE CHURCHES IN THE U.K. ARE PRAYING FOR REVIVAL.
  • 00:16:13.210 --> 00:16:17.000
  • AND I HONESTLY BELIEVE THAT UNLESS YOU HAVE ISRAEL
  • 00:16:17.020 --> 00:16:20.150
  • AS PART OF YOUR UNDERSTANDING AND YOUR ROOTS.
  • 00:16:20.170 --> 00:16:23.090
  • YOU WON'T SEE THAT REVIVAL.
  • 00:16:23.110 --> 00:16:25.110

  • CONTROL AND AREA C, WHICH IS MAINLY UNDEVELOPED

  • YOU CAN ASK, HOW IS THIS POSSIBLE?
  • 00:21:04.080 --> 00:21:06.050
  • IT'S BEING DONE IN BROAD DAYLIGHT WITH LARGE SIGNS,

  • OF THE UNITED STATES AT THAT TIME BARRACK OBAMA.

  • AND SO EVERYTHING WAS SET UP AND NOW HUNDREDS
  • 00:21:29.080 --> 00:21:32.250
  • OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS ARE BEING FUNNELED IN FROM THE EU
  • 00:21:32.270 --> 00:21:38.000

  • WITHIN THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITY.
  • 00:21:41.230 --> 00:21:43.220
  • AND MUCH OF THE MONEY IS BEING FUNNELED THROUGH,

  • OPENLY FUNNELED THROUGH A KNOWN ALLEGED TERRORIST FRONT
  • 00:21:46.170 --> 00:21:51.290
  • FOR THE PFLP AND THE--
  • 00:21:52.010 --> 00:21:53.230
  • - WHO IS THE PFLP?
  • 00:21:53.250 --> 00:21:55.080
  • - THAT'S THE POPULAR FRONT FOR THE LIBERATION OF PALESTINE,
  • 00:21:55.100 --> 00:21:58.100
  • WHICH IS DIFFERENT THAN THE POPULAR FRONT
  • 00:21:58.120 --> 00:22:00.160
  • FOR THE LIBERATION OF PALESTINE GENERAL COMMAND,
  • 00:22:00.180 --> 00:22:03.290
  • THAT'S A DIFFERENT ONE.
  • 00:22:04.010 --> 00:22:05.090
  • BUT IT'S STILL THE PFLP, CONSIDERED ONE OF THE WORST
  • 00:22:05.110 --> 00:22:07.290

  • THE SAME PEOPLE FINANCING THESE SETTLEMENTS
  • 00:22:30.020 --> 00:22:32.250

  • HAVE BEEN VERY FEW PERMITS GIVEN WHICH IS WHY
  • 00:22:56.100 --> 00:22:59.020
  • THE EU HAD TO DO THIS.
  • 00:22:59.040 --> 00:23:00.200
