A former Conservative Party MP in the UK Parliament said that the UN resolution that “Zionism is racism” should be “scrapped” it has been discovered.
Sir Michael Latham was the Conservative MP for Melton from February 1974 to 1983 and for Rutland and Melton from 1983 until 1992.
In a House of Commons debate on Israel in 1991 he criticised the adoption of a resolution by the United Nations that “Zionism is racism.”
The finding comes as Conservative Prime Minister David Cameron has led the opposition of criticisms of the Israeli regime led by Benjamin Netanyahu, saying “anti-Semitism is racism.”
Crocels News asked Prime Minister Cameron whether he supported Sir Michael’s view that it was wrong to say that “Zionism is racism,” but no reply was forthcoming.
The current debate around so-called anti-Semitism arose when it was found that Labour MP Naz Shah posted an image on Facebook suggesting that the solution to the United States’s apparent unconditional support for Israel was to move the Holy Land to North America. It was revealed today that the Labour Party have also suspended Ken Livingstone for saying that the Nazis supported “Zionism,” which was a term used throughout the 1930s and 1940s to refer to the establishment of a Jewish State within the Holy Land.
United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, adopted on 10 November 1975, stated that the UN “determines that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination“. It was revoked in 1991 with UN General Assembly Resolution 46/86.
