Boris Johnson’s Sister Reveals His Little-known Past as a Volunteer on an Israeli Kibbutz

‘He was so socially low on the pecking order,’ recalls Rachel Johnson. ‘He was not a kibbutznik. He was not a soldier. And he was so pale he couldn’t even go in the sun.’

Mayor of London blasts boycott movement during Israel visit
Known for his jokes and insults, Boris Johnson takes helm of British diplomacy
LONDON — The outspoken and controversial Boris Johnson has been easing into his new position as Britain’s Foreign Secretary with visits to Brussels and Paris and chummy joint press conferences in London with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry.

A trip to Israel doesn’t seem to be as high on Johnson’s agenda as repairing fences with the European Union and its member states or assuring Washington and the rest of the world that post-Brexit-vote Britain is standing tall and ready to return to business as usual.

But if and when the mop-haired minister who led the campaign for Britain to leave the EU does pop over to Jerusalem for a visit, he will undoubtedly be welcomed with open arms.

Long considered friendly and sympathetic toward Israel — on his last visit to the country, two years ago, the then-London mayor lashed out at the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement and pronounced Israel the only “pluralist, open society” in the region — Johnson’s connection to, and interest in the country goes back many years: to days in which no one was on the tarmac to welcome him at Ben-Gurion International Airport and no red carpets were in sight.

If anyone took note of Johnson’s presence at all, back when he made his first trip to Israel over 30 years ago, attests his sister Rachel Johnson, it was probably just because his floppy bright blond hair and pale skin made him stick out like, as she puts it, a sore “goy” thumb.

Rachel, a London-based journalist, remembers that first trip to Israel well: The siblings undertook it together in the summer of 1984. She was on a gap year before heading to Oxford University. Boris, 14 months her elder and already a student at Oxford, had just finished his first year at Balliol College, where he was a top classics scholar. “Our father thought this was a good way to get rid of us for the summer,” notes Rachel, “and six weeks of what I thought of as ‘Jew camp’ on kibbutz sounded fun.”

While Rachel, Boris and their two younger brothers have some Jewish ancestry on their mother’s side — their maternal great-grandfather, says Rachel, was a rabbi from Lithuania — their Jewish identity, inasmuch as they have or ever had one (Boris identifies as an Anglican) comes by way of their father, Stanley Johnson.

A non-Jew with royal British and Turkish heritage in his ancestral mix, Stanley, divorced from his children’s mother — the painter Charlotte Johnson — remarried a woman from a well-known Anglo-Jewish family: Jenny, the stepdaughter of philanthropist Zionist businessman Teddy Sieff, who had served as chairman of Marks and Spencer and once survived an assassination attempt by Ilich Ramirez Sanchez, better known as Carlos the Jackal.

And so it was Johnson’s father who helped orchestrate the Israel trip: putting the youngsters in touch with his wife’s close family friends, the distinguished Israeli diplomat Michael Comay and his writer and architect wife, Joan, and helping make the connection with Kibbutz Kfar Hanassi, where Rachel and Boris were set to volunteer for close to two months.

It did not take long for the two sophisticated public-school spawn to decide that perhaps that much time in a agricultural collective community in the heat of summer was a little ambitious.

“Al [Rachel’s nickname for Boris, whose official first name is Alexander] is living in utter squalor with two others. I am living with Sarah from Maida Vale, who is on ulpan,” says Rachel, reading aloud from her 30-year-old diary: “Al is warning me he is going to stay here 2-3 weeks maximum.”

“It was all very rudimentary,” she recalls today, remembering the “baking-hot huts with corrugated roofs” they were lodged in, and the hummus, yogurt, eggs and tomatoes they were served — as she recalls it — at every single meal. “Neither of us were very impressed at the beginning,” she sniffs.

And while Rachel somehow finagled her way out of her initial work assignment — cleaning the men’s bathrooms — and got herself reassigned to picking apples with “an attractive kibbutznik,” Boris dutifully stuck to his appointed job in the communal kitchen. There — as Rachel describes it in her diary — he “showed inner steel,” scrubbing pots and pans and sweating it out in the heat of the kitchen, meal after meal.

“I played the shiksa princess card and went straight to the work coordinator and said, there was no way I was going to be cleaning men’s toilets on my holiday. But Boris was amazing. I have to hand it to him. He didn’t complain at all,” she says.

Whether or not the future mayor and foreign secretary enjoyed that hot summer on the kibbutz and/or got much out of it is another question. “He was so socially low on the pecking order,” Rachel notes, only half-joking. “He was not a kibbutznik. He was not a soldier. And he was so pale he couldn’t even go in the sun.”

So, while his sister spent evenings in the pub and took weekend trips up to the nearby Lake Kinneret, Boris spend his free time in the kibbutz library, where, Rachel says, he read Virgil and played music on an old record player. “He is self-sufficient,” she says. “I think he was all right.”

Things took a turn for the better post-kibbutz, she remembers, when the two hitchhiked, caught buses and, for a while, took turns driving the Comays’ borrowed car up and down the country: They visited Hebron and Bethlehem, hiked up Masada, floated in the Dead Sea and went sightseeing in Jerusalem. There, one of the first things Boris — a young journalist and rising star at the Oxford Union at the time — did, was ask for an interview with Teddy Kollek, the city’s much-loved five-time mayor.

“He came back from that interview in a state of great elation,” Rachel, who had forgone the visit to the mayor so as to finish her Judith Krantz novel, wrote in her diary. “He loved that.”

It was, in sum, says Rachel, actually a very good summer. They stayed the whole six weeks.

These days, many a summer later, the British foreign secretary, according to the local papers, is in Greece — not to volunteer with refugees or hold talks on that country’s economic woes, but rather just for some rest and relaxation with his family.

It’s a shame really, as he could have come back to the kibbutz instead. He undoubtedly would have been amazed by the air-conditioning in the modern bed-and-breakfast units. And no one would have made him work in the kitchen, either.

Boris Johnson to become next British Prime Minister, after winning Conservative Party leadership ballot
 Wednesday, July 24, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: Brexit, Britain, Conservative, EU, Euro, Europe, European Union, News, Theresa May, Worthy News

Boris Johnson, Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs speaking to the media in London, 14 July 2016.
(Worthy News) - Britain’s next Prime Minister will be Boris Johnson after he won a ballot vote of Conservative Party members against Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, it was announced Tuesday.

Johnson, an avid supporter of Brexit and former Mayor of London, had been expected to clinch victory against Hunt. He will replace outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May Wednesday after she announced her resignation last month amid failure to lead the nation out of the European Union.

He won 66 percent of the vote, or 92,153 of the total 159,320 people eligible to vote. Hunt received 46,656 votes, and there were 509 rejected ballot papers. The turnout was 87.4 percent.

Britain's Johnson to appoint his Brexit team

breaking world news brexit
(Worthy News) - Boris Johnson will take office on Wednesday as British prime minister and will unveil the names of the team he has tasked with delivering Brexit by the end of October, with or without a deal.

Johnson enters Downing Street at one of the most perilous junctures in post-World War British history - the United Kingdom is divided over Brexit and weakened by a three-year political crisis since the Brexit referendum.

His pledge to energize the country and deliver Brexit - do or die - on Oct. 31, sets the United Kingdom up for a showdown with the EU and thrusts it toward a potential constitutional crisis, or election, at home.

Brexit hardliner Boris Johnson won the contest to lead Britain’s governing Conservative Party on Tuesday and will become the country’s next prime minister, tasked with fulfilling his promise to lead the UK out of the European Union “come what may.”

He replaces Prime Minister Theresa May, who announced her resignation last month, and will officially become Britain’s leader on Wednesday.

The ballot had a 87.4 percent turnout — Jeremy Hunt received 46,656 votes and Johnson got 92,153.

In his victory speech, Johnson said he planned to “deliver Brexit, unite the country and defeat [Labour leader] Jeremy Corbyn.”

The victory is a triumph for 55-year-old Johnson, an ambitious but erratic politician whose political career has veered between periods in high office and spells on the sidelines.

He is a former London mayor who has wooed Conservatives by promising to succeed where May failed and lead the UK out of the European Union on the scheduled date of October 31 — with or without a divorce deal.

May immediately offered her congratulations, tweeting: “We now need to work together to deliver a Brexit that works for the whole UK and to keep Jeremy Corbyn out of government. You will have my full support from the back benches.”

Several Conservative ministers have already announced they will resign to fight any push for a “no-deal” Brexit, an outcome economists warn would disrupt trade and plunge the UK into recession. Fears that Britain is inching closer to a “no-deal” Brexit weighed on the pound once again Tuesday. The currency was down another 0.3 percent at $1.2441 and near two-year lows.

May stepped down after Britain’s Parliament repeatedly rejected the withdrawal agreement she struck with the 28-nation bloc. Johnson insists he can get the EU to renegotiate — something the bloc insists it will not do.

If not, he says Britain must leave the EU on Halloween, “come what may.”

The new prime minister will preside over a House of Commons in which most members oppose leaving the EU without a deal, and where the Conservative Party lacks an overall majority.
