London-Jerusalem: The future of relations after the death of Queen Elizabeth II. By Freddy Eytan

The death of Queen Elizabeth II plunges Great Britain into melancholy and uncertainty, testing new Prime Minister Liz Truss. He is 15 years oldc The head of the British government is appointed by the queen during her 70-year reign.

During her short political career, Liz Truss often changed sides and opinions. He probably thinks that if we want to keep the same ideas, we should change parties… And yet, despite this opportunistic behavior, the appointment should please us. From her tender youth, Liz Truss has demonstrated an unequivocal friendship and unwavering support for Israel and the Jewish people.

This permanent position continues with Boris Johnson’s friendly policy. Therefore, strengthening of Israeli-British relations is expected. We are sure that the new king Charles III, who is known for his deep friendship with the Jewish people, will voluntarily contribute to this rapprochement.

Already in October 2021, Truss signed a bilateral memorandum of understanding between the two countries, which provides for strong cooperation in all fields and at all levels, especially in the sectors of intelligence services, cyber security and the fight against Islamist terrorism. No such protocol was ever signed with France…

In the Iranian document, Great Britain undertakes to end the military nuclear program of the ayatollahs. Will he openly oppose the position of the European Union? Will it be more uncompromising than the Americans?

Truss also announced that he would consider moving the British embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. A bold stance that defies traditional British politics. Is this just an election promise?

The new tenant of 10 Downing Street is also highly critical of the UN’s biased and sometimes even anti-Semitic role towards Israel.

He vowed to toughen anti-BDS rules and fight relentlessly against Jew-hatred and anti-Semitic acts in his country.

The vast majority of the British people have already consigned the dangerous ideology of former Labor Party leader Jeremy Corbyn to the dustbin of history.

He introduced early socialism based on the model of Marxism-Leninism. A supposedly egalitarian and generous communism for all working classes, but on top of that, forced labor and the Gulag for decades. Oppressive police totalitarianism against ethnic communities, especially the millions of Jews who survived the terror behind the Iron Wall.

Courageous cries of alarm launched by Conservative leaders, including Theresa May and Boris Johnson, as well as the UK’s chief rabbi, have succeeded in alerting and mobilizing all Britons against the scourge of anti-Semitism, the vile beast they represent. Corbyn.

A strong Jewish community has always stood in solidarity with universal struggles and contributed to the war effort against the Nazis, especially the famous Jewish Brigade. British Jews breathed new life into the country’s economy, cultural and political life.

Despite the campaigns and calls of some far-left organizations and NGOs, it is reasonable to hope that bilateral relations between Israel and Britain, a permanent member of the United Nations Security Council, will be strengthened by the appointment of Liz Truss. Pro-Palestinian.

In addition, it should be noted that the Muslim mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, opened an interesting and fruitful dialogue with the moderate leaders of the Muslim community.

Brexit offered Britain wide diplomatic maneuvering. London is no longer dependent on the bureaucratic whims of Brussels-based commissioners or civil servants on Israeli policy and the Palestinian issue.

We wish Liz Truss the best of luck in her new role as the British people mourn the passing of Queen Elizabeth II.

Finally, let us emphasize that during his 70-year reign and his many travels across continents and oceans, it is surprising and regrettable that His Majesty never set foot on the soil of the State of Israel.

King Charles III is always welcome in Israel. He came to Yitzhak Rabin’s funeral in 1995, to commemorate Shimon Peres in 2016, and to participate in an international conference on the Holocaust in 2020. He contemplated his grandmother’s burial, which was installed in the church of the Monastery of St. Mary Magdalene, located above the Garden of Gethsemane on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem…
