""Once again the London Jewish Chronicle happened to be well ahead of any other British media outlets. In the main article of its Friday edition, David Abrahams, the leading protagonist in the current Labour donation fiasco, tried to explain why he donated money to the Labour party by proxy.
Abrahams, who insists upon presenting himself as a charitable being, claimed that he "had made (his) donations secretly so as to avoid accusations of being part of a "Jewish conspiracy"."
Yet, one may wonder why this renowned philanthropic millionaire was so concerned with issues having to do with "Jewish conspiracy". I may try to offer a simple explanation. The Labour Party is not exactly a charity and Abrahams was at the time of the donation to them, a prominent activist in two major Zionist lobbies ("Labour Friends of Israel" and "Jewish Labour")......
The political instincts of Abrahams were correct. He was sensitive enough to know how bad his donation may reflect on him and his people. However, it is now all in the open. And I may have to correct you, Abrahams, it doesn"t look like a Jewish conspiracy. If to use Philip Roth"s fictional expression, this was a "plot against the British people"."
