The Gallowayization of Clare Short continues apace:
A former cabinet minister was roundly condemned by fellow MPs and community leaders this week after revealing that a recent visit she paid to Lebanon had been funded by a television station accused of broadcasting ‘horrific anti-semitism’.
Clare Short wrote in the register of members interests that Al-Manar televison – which is banned in the US and France – paid for her flights as well as accommodation, food and travel expenses, when she travelled to Beirut in July.
The entry stated that she was in the country to “appear on television show ‘In Their Eyes’ and to participate in some official visits and a tour across southern Lebanon and the southern suburbs of Beirut in order to see reconstruction”.
Al-Manar, you may recall, is the Hezbollah-run TV station which broadcast in 2003 a dramatic series about a “global Jewish government” similar to that described in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
