Ian Livingston, 48, is publically recognized as a staunch supporter of Zionism.
British Prime Minister David Cameron has appointed the most outspoken supporter of Zionist regime of Israel as trade and investment minister, local media reported.
Ian Livingston, 48, who heads telecom giant BT (formerly British Telecom) as chief executive, will take up the new job in December. He has called the Israeli entity as Å“the most amazing state in the world.”
He is replacing Lord Green, an ordained priest in the Church of England who is approaching retirement.
It is reported that Cameron personally handpicked Livingston for the trade minister job, saying that Livingston Å“will bring huge talent to a vital national effort.”
The Prime Minister once moaned that the UKâ„¢s Conservative Party should be called the Torah party rather than the Tory party because there are so many Israeli Jews at the top of it.
Other top Zionist figures in the Conservative party include co-chairs Lord Feldman and Grant Shapps MP, who has defined himself as Å“quite observant,” senior treasurer Howard Leigh, a member of the Jewish Leadership Council; and former party treasurers Richard Harrington MP and Lord Fink, another member of the JLC.
Livingston, himself, is a well-known supporter of Israeli regime, saying recently that he hoped to see the start of Å“a path to peace for Israel”.
During his time at BT Livingston dismissed calls by charity War on Want for the company to disassociate itself from the Israel telecom company Bezeq, according to reports.
Livingston was born in Glasgow in 1964.
