Whatever happened to the US-Quartet Agreement , signed by Israel, 'to give the Palestinian people freedom to move, to trade, to live ordinary lives'?
At its conference four years ago the Methodist Church in the UK set a brave example.
Pro-Palestinian campaigners are cock-a-hoop over the Presbyterian Church USA's vote to divest from Caterpillar Inc, Hewlett-Packard and Motorola Solutions.
Nothing, it seems, is too ridiculous for Nick Clegg, UK Deputy Prime Minister, to contemplate. See him in this painful video 'Nick Clegg welcomes the Jewish Manifesto' Here aimed at EU election candidates and voters.
Ed Miliband, UK Labour Party leader and younger brother of former British Foreign Secretary David Miliband, has just been on a visit to Israel and occupied Palestine. Ed, who is Jewish, is a wannabe prime minister.
Last year engineering students from the Gaza Strip took on the cream of Europe's technical universities in a competition to build a race car, despite obstruction by the Israeli regime.
Who on earth gave Her Majesty's ministers, and the 80 percent of the Conservative Party who are adoring Friends of Israel, permission to associate Britain with such hooligans?
Enough of this inter-faith lah-di-dah? True Christians everywhere - not just the Methodists - need to stiffen the sinew and toughen up. Why continue all this inter-faith lah-di-dah with religious delinquents?
And then do the same to all your neighbours?
The headline said Hamas had “cancelled Christmas”. Could this possibly be true? When I visited Gaza in late 2007 Fr Manuel Mussallam, the feisty old priest in charge of the Catholic community, took me and others to meet Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh and some of his colleagues.
Beware politicians cloaked in the American flag or diplomats sporting Union Jack kippahs…Israeli aggression and defiance of international law, human rights conventions and UN resolutions, have created enormous hostility throughout the world, much of which is directed at the US as Israel’s number one buddy, funder and protector.
Britain, as a former friend of Iran (pre-1953) who owes much to that country, ought to show leadership, change the game and avert the looming catastrophe.
Balfour and his clueless pals in the corridors of British power clearly had no idea of the true purpose and base methods of Zionism. The Balfour Declaration of 1917 - actually a letter from the British foreign secretary, Arthur Balfour, to the most senior Jew in England, Lord Rothschild - pledged assistance for the Zionist cause ignoring the consequences to the native majority.
Drove coach and horses through government’s Ministerial Code for mysterious buddy. The dodgy relationship between Britain's defence secretary, Dr Liam Fox, and his friend Adam Werrity has been entertaining the media and public here for the last several days.
Law, justice, liberty and human rights, we were taught, are non-negotiable. Perhaps Obama, La Clinton, Cameron and Hague missed that important part of their education. Tell your Member of Parliament: “Justice for Palestinians first. Negotiations later… maybe.”
Radio Free Palestine pulls no punches and is an indictment on the international community, which has failed this region of the world for so many years.You will be angered by its message and, hopefully, moved to share their passion for peace in the Middle East.
The only surprise about the Palestinians' bid for freedom at the United Nations was the panicky response of US president and the speed with which he jettisoned all pretence of integrity and political respectability.
Using “leverage” to shunt Palestinian independence into the scrap-yard . What Hague wants to see at the UN is a return to lopsided negotiations.
