British Allow Anti-Semitic Iranian Propaganda in the UK (GateStone Institute) by Lee Kaplan 08/01/12)Source: http://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/3235/anti-semitic-iranian-propaganda-uk GateStone Institute GateStone Institute Articles-Index-TopPublishers-Index-Top
Despite these convictions for "hate crimes" against Islam, the British government is apparently perfectly willing to overlook the converse: anti-Semitic attacks by Iranian front groups against Jews. The deeper question for the British government is this: If British citizens can be fined or incarcerated for expressing unsavory opinions about Islam, how come Lady Renouf and Philip Bree are not being charged with "hate crimes" as well for doing exactly the same thing against the Jewish people?

"The Heritage and Destiny Channel," on You Tube, run by Iran, currently features a video with two British subjects: an actress and film producer named Michelle Renouf, whose real name is Michelle Mainwaring, 62, a former Australian television model, now a British citizen, and a barrister named Philip Bree, who lives in London. Both star in mock interviews by Iranian TV, and try to lend an air of rational authority in their interviews as they methodically explain that the Olympic logo being used at this week´s Olympic Games in London is in fact a conspiratorial "subliminal Zion race-supremacy logo," and part of an international conspiracy conducted by the Jews. According to Lady Renouf, the zigzag design of the logo´s lettering spells out the word "Zion," and refers to Jews and Israel. The video can be seen in the UK as well as on You Tube.



The Iranians have boycotted the Olympic Games this week; this broadcast is intended to encourage the member states of the European Union to do the same. Citing the names of two New York advertising executives involved in the design and promotion of the logo as proof of her Jewish conspiracy theory, Lady Renouf then yields the floor to Barrister Bree, who explains that the traditional Olympics rings found in the new logo are representative of black witchcraft and Satanism of the bloodthirstiest kind, practiced by Jews.

For those up on British history, Renouf and Bree are reincarnations of World War II´s Lord Haw-Haw. Like the pro-German propagandist who spoke by radio urging British troops to desert the army and blaming the Jews for the war, Lady Renouf (she gives herself the title of "Lady" after having been briefly married to a British aristocrat) speaks in a very posh upper class British accent as she tells her audience that pro-Jewish conspirators, notably even the British founder of the World Olympic Community in the 19th century, "a non- Jew, but a Free Mason," were involved in creating the Olympics logo "when the Jews under Theodor Herzl were planning to conquer Palestine."

Free Masons have long been included as part of the world Jewish conspiracy as outlined in the fraudulent Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, responsible for countless pogroms and other attacks worldwide against Jews. The Protocols are part of a successful TV mini-series played all over the Arab world, but in particular in Iran, retitled Horseman Without A Horse, that dramatizes anti-Jewish blood libels. One scene even has religious Jews murdering a gentile child to use his blood to prepare Passover matzoh.



On the surface, to the uninitiated, these two speakers sound like extremely well-educated rational people, but if one visits the You Tube website for the Heritage and Destiny Channel, they are obviously in the service of the anti-Semitic Iranian government.

The website reveals that Lady Renouf is listed as the owner and producer of a company called Telling Films, which produces pro- Khomeinist propaganda videos for the Iranian government, and anti- Semitic trailers for foreign audiences. On the Heritage and Destiny YouTube channel are other videos of her being interviewed, warning the world of a Jewish conspiracy and denying the Holocaust. According to one source, "She has become known in recent years for her defense of Holocaust deniers such as David Irving, Robert Faurisson, Richard Williamson, Germar Rudolf, Ernst Zündel, and Fredrick Töben in both broadcasts and her Telling Films documentaries. Though not a revisionist author or researcher herself, she has been frequently characterized by opponents as a Holocaust denier. "

In her interview, Lady Renouf praises the Iranian government for alerting the European Union to the international Jewish conspiracy that started with the Rothschilds allegedly controlling world banking; she explains that "World Jewry has the greatest outreach in the World," but that they [Jews] like "to do it by hidden hand." She urges the rest of Europe to boycott the Olympics as Iran has chosen to do.

Philip Bree, the London barrister then follows up in a similar interview, in which he explains that the Olympic symbol for 2012, displaying a pentagram and the five rings emblem for the Committee, represents the black arts of Satanism. Bree´s background is more nebulous than that of Lady Renouf, who appears to be an actress and socialite who found attention and easy money working for the Iranians. Bree appears to be just a garden variety anti-Semite. It makes sense, however, that the Iranian mullahs would see his ranting about Jews and Satanism credible to disseminate as they do the same in their sermons in Iran. Bree even suggests that the Masonic emblem of a compass is based on the Jewish Star of David.

The British have been in the news lately for their stretched-to-the- limit political correctness concerning militant Islamists, and have even been jailing British subjects or fining them for allegedly making insulting remarks about Islam. Despite these convictions for "hate crimes" against Islam – one British police official referred to them as a "zero tolerance policy" – the British government seems perfectly willing to overlook the converse: anti- Semitic attacks by Iranian front groups against the Jewish community.

At issue here is more than some paid Jew-haters attempting to fan the flames of anti-Semitism at the 2012 Olympics in London. In addition, the Olympics Committee also refused to allow one minute of silence as a memorial for Israelis murdered at Munich Olympics of 1972 simply for being Jews. It is not clear if no Jewish names were submitted when the British read out other names, or whether these Jewish names had been officially submitted, as requested, but were the expunged before they could publicly be read.

The deeper question for the British Government is this: If British citizens can be fined or incarcerated for expressing unsavory opinions about Islam, how come Lady Renouf and Philip Bree are not being charged with "hate crimes" as well for doing the exactly the same against the Jewish people?
