One cannot really blame Israel for doing this. Most states promote their interests as best they can. But one can and should expose and shame the British politicians who are collaborating with Israel in further harming Britain's representative democracy.
It is not as though these people cannot be easily identified. They even advertise what they are up to. They are members of the Conservative and Labour Friends of Israel. They dominate both parliamentary parties, but especially the Conservatives. According to the CFI's figures, fully 80 per cent of Tory MPs belong to the party's Friends of Israel group.
Once, no one would have hesitated to call British politicians acting in the interests of a foreign power, and very possibly taking financial benefits for doing so, "traitors". And yet, as Al Jazeera's secretly filmed footage shows, Israeli spies like Shai Masot can readily meet and conspire with a Tory minister's much-trusted aide to discuss how best to "take down" the deputy foreign minister, Alan Duncan, over his criticisms of Israel's illegal settlements in the occupied territories.
