The cementing of transatlantic ties by the special relationship between David Cameron and Barack Obama, is a ‘good thing’, or is it?

Does this mean that we can shortly expect the CFI to transmogrify itself into the British Israel Public Affairs Committee (BIPAC) as the UK cell of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) – that powerful, unelected pressure group which has such undue influence over US foreign policy?

If so, then the lobby would have covertly achieved an (unelected) seat within the legislatures of the UK and the EU, as well as of the US. For a Middle Eastern state, that is neither a member of Europe nor of America, to have such astonishing influence, would represent a distinctly dangerous threat to all these democratic governments that together represent electorates of over 800 million people.

We in Europe want peace not nuclear war, and that means a nuclear weapons free Middle East to include both Iran and Israel.
