BNP Friends of Israel?

If UKIP have their very own Friends of Israel Group, is it not time the BNP had its own Friends of Israel, for reasons of funding and electoral respectability?

Zionism and British Nationalism after all have much in common as they both support Ethno-Nationalism.

Recently UKIP has been given the seal of approval by Marine Le Pen who is anxious to promote Civic Nationalism in Front Nationale.

There is also some debate on the subject of Ethno v Civic Nationalism in the BNP too.  I am definitely a Civic Nationalist for pure reasons of electoral appeal.   Islam would of course promote Civic Nationalism with its concept of the ummah - the Muslim version of Christendom.   (Basically, this means making a point of having a sense of community with people who share the same views and beliefs as you, rather than accepting or rejecting them on the basis of race.)  The Koran quite specifically states that all races are equal and that every man should be judged according to his good works.

YUSUFALI: O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).
PICKTHAL: O mankind! Lo! We have created you male and female, and have made you nations and tribes that ye may know one another. Lo! the noblest of you, in the sight of Allah, is the best in conduct. Lo! Allah is Knower, Aware.
SHAKIR: O you men! surely We have created you of a male and a female, and made you tribes and families that you may know each other; surely the most honorable of you with Allah is the one among you most careful (of his duty); surely Allah is Knowing, Aware.

If the Israelis would like to get in touch with the BNP and state what donations would be given for what policies they want in the BNP manifesto, I am sure the Chairman and the membership will listen with great interest.

Since I see Nationalism is an ideology of national self interest, I see do not see that the national interest of Israel would necessarily be to the detriment of British national interest.   It just depends on what the Israelis want of the BNP, which has to be judged on its merits on an ad hoc basis.  

I think it would be good if the Israelis recommended that the THOUGHTCRIME of Holocaust Denial be repealed in all countries where it exists, because the existence of Holocaust Denial laws gives rise to the impression that there is a Jewish conspiracy and make non-Jews hate Jews for their special status victimhood that limits the free speech of historians from speaking certain numbers.  

I wonder what they will ask of the BNP in return.

Thank you so much for taking time to write about my organisation.

But please allow me to correct you on a couple of points.

UKIP is a party of course devoted to civic nationalism (clearly stated in our manifesto) and not ethnic nationalism. THis means not being devoted to a country of one homogenous race, which would be almost impossible given the ethnic diversity which exists in Britain. But rather, a devotion to Britishness as a culture which people may subscribe to and be involved with no matter what their cultural heritage.

I for one, am a Jewish person with ethnic routes going back to Eastern Europe. Clearly it would be illogical if I were to advocate a pure white Britain.

May I also point out that this was not a case of Jews going to UKIP and offering them money in exchange for policies. By contrast, I myself as a Jewish citizen, asked my party's leadership if I could get intolved in setting up the project.

Nice to receive your email, do keep in touch!

Aren't Jews white people too?

If israelis are white I could say same thing about turks, so being white or not is meaningless!

Everytime an european far-right party took votes there are always jewish zionist intellectuals which demonize it.
Israel is a clear enemy of european nationalist parties: they promote multuculturalism in Europe and USA but at the same time they are nationalist and racist in Israel, which do not even belongs to them.
Long live palestinians!
Long live BNP!

It is very interesting that in Mein Kampf Hitler conflates Jews with liberals.
