Beware of Clegg: UK Political Star in Bed w/Anti-Israel Billionaire, Obama Rezko Buddy

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

The Islamopandering just isn’t going to stop is it?

Why are all these politicians kissing so much Arab ass?

Is it worth the chump change they get from these billionaires to ruin their homeland?

ebayer on April 23, 2010 at 12:53 pm

South Park, Bacha Bazi Boys…it’s all about Islamopandering here in the West.

After 9/11 I NEVER thought this would be so prevalent…but then again, after 9/11 is when I woke up. It’s disconcerting to see so many people are still pandering and it’s coming close to 10 years. Bizarro World.

Perhaps in the not too distant future Britain will become yet another “failed state”, like Pakistan (they deserve each other)…there’s no helping determined, demented lemmings racing to throw themselves over a cliff. The sooner the UK joins the Arab League and the Organization of Islamic States, the better. At least then, the Brits need no longer play their little games about being “civilized”, or “western,” or “educated.” They can join their unwashed, barbarian brethren.

(The polls are predicting a minority government with the antisemite, so-called “liberal” as PM — it’s a form of government that they haven’t had since the 70s.)

I bet the name “Churchill” is hardly ever mentioned anywhere in Britain anymore. Not only has the sun set on the Brit empire, it is fast setting on Britain itself.

Not Ovenready on April 23, 2010 at 2:42 pm

Look, Deb Gordon Brown is a globalist idiot through and through. HE’S EVEN CALLED FOR A GLOBAL CONSTITUTION! HOW F-ING NUTSO IS THAT!

My only solution for England is BNP…BRITISH NATIONAL PARTY…akin to say the Constitution Party here in the states…you know something to get the ADL and Southern Poverty Law Center all pissed off!

Bob Porrazzo on April 23, 2010 at 2:46 pm

With all the muzzies that country is home to now, is it any wonder a slug like this guy can be popular?

The LIberal Democrats would make New Labour’s politicians seem like straight shooting moderates in the political arena. Mr. Clegg is a symptom of a massive breakdown of the poltical system in the United Kingdom, and not a breath of fresh air. Conservatives have essentially died off in Britain, even though a party of that name still exists as a hollow shell filled with watered down and not so watered down imitations of the policies of their opponents(Global Warming, etc.). When Conservative Party leader David Cameron praises Barack Obama as an inspiration, one knows that the end has truly come.

Worry01, you have a point, if David Cameron (Conservative candidate), wins the election in Great Britian, I just hope that he removes Michael Savage’s name off of that stupid ban list created by Gordon Brown and Jackie Smith (remember she withdrew herself last summer because of numerous scandals & Savage went onto BBC America TV and exposed and embarrassed Smith for what she is), if this Nick Clegg nutjob wins the election, then Savage has no chance of his name being removed from that stupid list in Britian.

Instead of smearing and spreading hate, why don’t you just ask him his position? It’s probably what a real journalist should do!

James Gardiner on April 24, 2010 at 2:01 pm

Well, I just read Time Magazine, so I know the real reason Clegg is so popular. It’s because he makes a good impression on television. We’re lukcy we have such incisive analysis from this thoughtful news magazine.

Little Al on April 24, 2010 at 11:14 pm


Writing from this side of the pond, I’m afraid I would have to agree with most of what you say. Although I don’t think it’s likely that Clegg will become prime minster, he may well hold the balance of power in a hung parliament.

Your remark that “Arab is a euphemism here” is spot on. While we have plenty of Muslims in the UK, unlike in the US I don’t think we have an “Arab community” as such here as Clegg implies.

I also agree that Clegg is a danger to Jews. In my view it would not be too much of an exaggeration to describe him as the soft face of anti-Semitism in the UK. He claims to recognize Israel’s right to defend itself (he could hardly do otherwise) but wants to deny Israel the ability to do so by starving it of weapons sales. And he justifies this by a hostile Middle East narrative which has the effect of encouraging hatred of Jews in the UK.

His claim here that he was courting unpopularity by criticizing Israel over Gaza is disingenuous, or even downright dishonest. Like the Iraq war he also criticized, thanks to a hostile media and political culture Operation Cast Lead was unpopular in the UK. But this is little Clegg’s pitch. He represents himself as the defender of right in the face of the established order, but he’s just another power-hungry politician who knows which way the wind is blowing.

Britain is a schizophrenic nation like Sweden and in exact proportion to their philoislamism (hidden, deranged antisemitism that all non-American and most American Christians are taught, but most reject it deliberatily if they are truly free and brave not do tricks to pretend its natural), the violence in these countries increases domestically, ie teenage rapes, street crime, check the stats. AND UNLIKE AFRICAN AMERICANS MUSLIMS WERE NEVER PERSECUTED, VIOLENCE IS THEIR RELIGION AND LYING. There is a major backstabbing of the west coming, along with Israels idea the Arabs are loyal to anything but Muslim Nukes.

Bertrude on April 25, 2010 at 6:52 am

Without a miracle Israel will not survive the upcoming genocide, but if Israel survives following that the world will know that a Catholic Muslim war must commence. Pure Evil against purest evil. Then the golden age for humanity will begin.

Islam is one big plagiary, just made more militant than the sources they robbed, a backward evolution to more theocracy. Whereas Jews and Protestants and Atheists have painstakingly moved toward human perfection and love, rather than psycho rulers babysitting or lying to the people they fear.

Bertrude on April 25, 2010 at 7:18 am

The UK is in for much turmoil

Truth on April 26, 2010 at 9:49 am

Wow – how daft are you Ms Schlussel

A Moss on April 30, 2010 at 8:31 am

This is not the worst to be known about Clegg and his degenerate party. Google “Jenny Tongue” and gooogle “Evan harris, euthanasia, abortion.” You won’t believe your eyes.

Fabio P.Barbieri on May 5, 2010 at 5:16 pm

If the UK really wants peace in Mid East (after all the British started the war by carving it up in the name of empire) then both Israel and Palestine need to be starved of weapons and have there bloody heads bashed together. They also need to get out of Afghanistan and leave it to the UN peace corps to sort out.

As for Americans being all moralistic re terrorism, the US was funding the IRA “freedom fighters” for years. There was a pub in the twin towers pre 9/11 that had a collection tin for the “Irish cause”. Bin Laden was trained by the US special forces to be a terrorist. There is a certain irony methinks.

Great info over again! Thumbs up!

Louise Pechar on June 18, 2011 at 1:52 am

The thought of arsekissing Nick Clegg and his Liberal Party taking the helm in Britain heralds Doomsday as far as Britain goes and cosying up to his Arab terrorist buddies spells disaster for Israel too! He is a gutless wimp just like David Cameron. Britain would be well rid of both of them…………..but WHO WILL LEAD BRITAIN BACK TO THE FUTURE??????????????? With these morons
