Sadly, many mainstream media sources (like Matt Drudge-yes, he’s now part of the mainstream media, whether you admit it or not) and much of Britain is in love with Nick Clegg of the UK’s Liberal Democrat party. Clegg is leading in the polls and may very well be the next Prime Minister. But he’s dangerous because he has dangerous alliances . . . with the Arab Street and the Islamic world.
Iraqi Billionaire Israel-Hater is Money Bags for UK’s Nick Clegg
Clegg is tight with Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi Muslim billionaire who supports HAMAS and helped fund a boat convoy to Gaza to provide aid and comfort to the terrorist group. And he funds one of the most anti-Semitic, anti-Israel websites in Great Britain. That’s not to mention that the sleazy Auchi is part of the Tony Rezko/Barack Obama axis and was involved in some of their many improper dealings.
A controversial Iraqi-British billionaire who funds one of the UK’s most strongly anti-Zionist websites organised a banquet in honour of Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg. . . .
Nadhmi Auchi, 73, was convicted of fraud in the giant French Elf-Aquitaine oil company trial in 2003 and given a suspended sentence, although he is seeking to appeal the verdict. . . .
Mr Clegg spoke at a dinner hosted by Mr Auchi’s Anglo-Arab Organisation, set up to promote understanding between Britain and the Arab world last November. . . .
Mr Auchi’s Middle East Online site promotes material by well-known anti-Zionists such as musician-activist Gilad Atzmon and Jeff Gates, who runs the anti-Israel “Criminal State” blog.
Mr Auchi also helped fund the first of George Galloway’s “Viva Palestina” convoys taking aid to Gaza.
By the way, Auchi was also convicted of bribery in the French trial.
Mr Auchi . . . has also been embroiled in the case of the convicted Chicago fraudster Antoin ‘Tony’ Rezko, once a friend and ally of President Obama.
A US court revoked Mr Rezko’s bail before he was convicted in 2008 when prosecutors discovered that Mr Auchi had wired him $3.5million from a bank account in Lebanon.
They feared that Mr Rezko intended to flee the country. . . .
Lord Steel, the former Liberal Democrat leader, is paid undisclosed sums as a director of Mr Auchi’s main company, the Luxembourg-registered General Mediterranean Holdings, the centre of a global empire that includes hotel, leisure, pharmaceutical and telecommunications firms. . . .
The banquet for Mr Clegg was also organised under the Anglo Arab Organisation’s auspices, and took place on November 11 last year amid the five-star splendour of the Millennium Hotel in London’s Mayfair. . . .
Lord Lamont and Mr Alan Duncan [the Conservative Shadow Prisons Minister, whatever that is] are listed on the Anglo Arab Organisation website as patrons – as is the imprisoned Mr Rezko.
Mr Auchi invested $170million in a Chicago property scheme organised by Mr Rezko.
Following Mr Auchi’s own criminal conviction, he was barred entry to the US, and American court documents say that Mr Rezko lobbied the State Department to have this ban lifted. . . .
Mr Auchi was guest of honour at a reception hosted by Rod Blagojevich in 2004. . . .
At the Clegg banquet, Mr Auchi made a speech suggesting he now preferred the Liberal Democrats.
He said: ‘In the past, the Arab community has not actively participated in British political life… I believe this is changing and we are now closer to finding a party that is not only sympathetic to our views but whose policies actively seek to address our concerns.’
Mr Clegg replied in kind, saying that the Arab community’s values also ‘sit deep in the soul of the Liberal Democrats’.
Mr Auchi’s personal fortune is estimated at £2.15billion, making him Britain’s 32nd richest person.
A UK citizen, he has lived in Britain since 1980. Since 2003, Mr Auchi has invested heavily in the new, post- Saddam Iraq.
Ah, now I know why we we’re still in Iraq. To help subsidize and protect this creep’s investments.
In his speech at the banquet in his honour, Mr Clegg . . . said: ‘I feel that there is a conjunction of aspirations, of hopes and of values between members of the British Arab community and many of the things that the Liberal Democrats stand for today.’
The Lib Dems had criticised the Iraq War and Israel’s actions in Gaza because it was right to do so, he added, not because it was popular. ‘We will not stand aside when unimaginable human suffering is taking place.’
This guy, Clegg–who is clearly a puppet of Muslim interests (Arab is a euphemism here) and an Arab billionaire briber and fraudster connected with Tony Rezko and Barack Obama–may just be Britain’s next PM, if the polls continue to trend as they have.
Not that Britain and the rest of Europe aren’t already lost to Muslim domination and interests. But it’s like the final nail in the coffin if Clegg becomes the next British head of state. And this is the man with whom we will be sharing our most classified intelligence.
And, apparently, with that, we’ll also be sharing it with Nadhmi Auchi and the rest of the Arab world. Cheers.
