Kometen Clegg - en riktig Israelhatare

Såhär på valdagen i Storbritannien tyder
ju allt på en riktigt rörig valutgång.
Mycket tyder på att liberaldemokraterna
kan få en vågmästarroll i det nya parlamentet.
Men vilka är då libdem ? Engelsktalande folk-
partister ? Eller fullständigt principlösa populister
med dunkla åsikter....?
Illavarslande tecken har synts länge....
Jenny Tonge, som arbetar för Hamas.
Tyvärr har den nya partiledningen struntat i hennes
aktiviteter och låtit henne fortsätta att husera i
partiets namn.
En förklaring till varför fick vi för några veckor sedan
när flera journalister började granska Nick Cleggs
Daily Telegraph varnade:
While Nick Clegg has made it a personal mission to publicly
whip the Israelis for defending their own country, he has
remained remarkably silent in the media about Iranian
backing for terrorist groups, Tehran’s calls to wipe Israel
off the map, and the massive levels of hatred directed
at Israel from within the United Nations, not least the
UN’s Human Rights Council. I don’t recall any op-eds
by Clegg warning against Iran’s nuclear ambitions, or
calling for an end to the persecution of Israel by Islamist
Nor has he written pieces in support of the democracy
protestors in Iran, many of whom have been brutally
beaten, raped, and in some cases murdered by
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s regime.
As a former EU bureaucrat, Clegg brings with him to
Westminster the sneering condescension towards
Israel which is so pervasive in Brussels and Strasbourg.
It is a destructive approach that undermines a close
British ally while encouraging Israel’s enemies.
There is an important distinction between a free,
democratic society like Israel, acting in self-defence,
and brutal terrorist organisations such as Hamas and
Hizbollah. Clegg’s drawing of moral equivalence
between the two sides is both sickening and offensive.
I dag går rykten om att det i Cleggs strategi för
att sälja sig till högstbjudande ingår att kräva
Storbritannien hör sedan tidigare inte till Israels
fåtaliga vänner i EU-sörjan. Men med Clegg som
utrikesminister skulle man få en uttalad fiende
Government officials said it would be inappropriate for
Israel to make any comment at all on the British elections,
in which Labor Prime Minister Gordon Brown is battling
both the traditional rival Conservative Party, led by
David Cameron, and an unexpected third-party challenge
from the Lib-Dems under Nick Clegg.
Privately, however, the view in Jerusalem is that it would
be deeply problematic for Israel were Clegg’s party to
unexpectedly prevail in the elections or, more realistically,
fare well enough to deny Labor or the Conservatives an
outright majority in the House of Commons.
Clegg has repeatedly lambasted Israel for using
“disproportionate” force in Operation Cast Lead,
slammed the blockade of Gaza and, in an op-ed article
last year, demanded that Britain and the EU halt arms
sales to Israel.
