Harold Wilson, friend of Israel and UK Prime Minister, 1964 to 1970 and 1974 to 1976.
Former UK prime minister Harold Wilson had many friends with links to Israel.
Some of these friends also had links to Soviet Russia.
In the days of Harold Wilson's premiership, Israel and Russia were friends, and swapped intelligence.
As recently as 1987 the Israelis were providing the KGB with American intelligence secrets.

According to George Young, who was a top officer in Britain’s MI6, Soviet Russia, in 1946-7, supplied base facilities, arms and explosives to Jewish terror groups to operate against British targets.

Many important people in the KGB were Jewish.
According to a BBC docudrama, 'The Plot Against Harold Wilson', broadcast in 2006, sections of the UK military plotted a coup d'etat against the UK prime minister Harold Wilson.
Reportedly, Britain's security services had concerns about the loyalty of Harold Wilson.
Secret Documents have revealed that the UK supplied Israel with quantities of plutonium while Harold Wilson was prime minister. UK and Israel in Secret Deals
What helped Harold Wilson into power was a sex scandal involving a showgirl called Mandy Rice-Davies.
Later Mandy opened several night clubs in Israel.
Mandy was the mistress of Peter Rachman, alleged by one source to be a Mossad agent.

Harold Wilson was President of the Board of Trade (a government minister) from 1947-51.
The few people who could get permission from the Board of Trade to import materials were in a position to become vastly rich.
Among the lucky few who got licenses were Montague Meyer, Joe Kagan and Rudy Sternberg, all of them Jewish.
Kagan and Sternberg later became peers.
Meyer gave Wilson a consultancy which took him on frequent trips to Moscow and Eastern Europe.
After the 'mysterious' death of Hugh Gaitskell, Wilson became Labour leader and eventually Prime Minister.
Anatoli Golitsin, a spy who defected from the KGB, claimed that Hugh Gaitskell was murdered in 1963 so that Harold Wilson, a 'KGB agent', could become leader of the Labour Party.
Harold Wilson's 'private office' was funded in secret by a wealthy group which included Lord Goodman, Sir Samuel Fisher, and Rudy Sternberg.
In the 1970's, Private Eye began to receive information of a possible link between Wilson and the Israeli secret service and the KGB.
Much of this information may have come from people within MI5.
In connection with alleged plots, the names of various people were handed to Private Eye.
Labour MP Ian Mikardo had at one time partnered Leslie Paisner in a business that traded with East Germany.
Mikardo's pair in the House of Commons was Barnaby Drayson who worked for Rudy Sternberg, as did Wilfred Owen MP who had resigned after being revealed as a spy for Czechoslovakia.
Montague Meyer, it turned out, was the man who had bought up much of the timber felled in Tanganyika during Labour's ill-fated groundnut scheme.
Then there was Labour MP Edward Short 'who had been in the habit of receiving bundles of banknotes from T Dan Smith', the city boss of Newcastle and one time partner of Eric Levine.
Kagan was a frequent visitor to Downing Street.
He was also on friendly terms with the station chief of the Russian KGB.
After being questioned by the police about tax and currency offences he eventually 'fled' to Israel, where perhaps his real allegiance lay.
Sir Rudy Sternberg was also under investigation by the security services.
On 3 October 2009, The Times (UK) has an article entitled: How Harold Wilson scared the MI5 chief with his KGB contacts
This is based on the book The Defence of the Realm by Christopher Andrews.
From this we learn:
The Security Service worried most about Harold Wilson's dear friend, the Lithuanian-born Joseph Kagan.
Kagan was a close friend of Richardas Vaygauskas, a Lithuanian officer in the KGB.
Oleg Lyanlin, a KGB defector, confirmed that Kagan was cultivated by Vaygauskas.
Kagan admitted that Vaygauskas had visited his flat almost every week.
Kagan was sentenced to ten months in jail for fraud in 1980.
Another Wilson friend, Rudy Sternberg, had links to the Soviets.
By 1975, Wilson had come to believe that there was a plot to discredit him.
He suspected that the South African intelligence service (BOSS) and the CIA were involved.
Wilson's resignation in 1976 led to speculation "that the knowledge that the Security Service had obtained discreditable material on him had forced him to step down."

In 1917 Churchill supported the Balfour Declaration. Reportedly, Churchill's mother was Jewish.
According to an article in The Independent ( Churchill and the Jews, by Martin Gilbert - Independent Online ... ): "Churchill benefited from the generosity of rich Jews such as Sir Ernest Cassel... His sponging induced grotesque fantasies that he was in the pay of 'International Jewry'."
Cassel was alleged to have been involved in a financial scam along with Churchill during the First World war.- aangirfan: Churchill and the Jews
