Anthony Lawson: The Blood of Palestine is on the Hands of the Bribe-Takers
The blood of the thousands of Palestinians who have been killed by the so-called Israel Defence Forces since the beginning of the siege of Gaza, stains the hands of each and every politician who has done nothing to censure Israel for this cruel and illegal act of virtual imprisonment, or who has taken any kind of bribe to bolster his or her election-campaign coffers, in return for turning their backs on the quite obvious fact that Apartheid Israel has never had any intention other than to genocide the Palestinian people.
Although Levy often comes out strongly against Israel’s actions, so much so that he now has to have a bodyguard, he is dead wrong to try to blame HAMAS for anything. Israel started everything, by having themselves plonked down in Arab territory.
Ayelet Shaked: Called for the killing of Palestinian women in a Facebook post, quoting these words: which were written by one of Benyamin Netanyahu’s speechwriters, the late Uri Elitzur.
She has since denied that her post was racist or offensive, by pointing out that she was quoting from an article by the late Uri Elitzur, which was written 12 years ago.
But her denial simply doesn’t hold water, because in her Facebook introduction to it she wrote: “It is as relevant today as it was at the time.”
