Given Israel's unsporting record and sheer bloody-minded obstruction towards Palestinians’ efforts to participate in a wide range of sporting activity (some listed below in Elizabeth Morley's email), it is quite outrageous for the British government, brought up on the playing fields of Eton and, one supposes, having had sporting values well and truly beaten into them including the Laws of Cricket, to applaud and reward their racist behaviour.
I have to admit, I was only dimly aware of the Dalet Plan before reading Alan Hart's latest article ’The green light for Zionism’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine’.
If reports are true, UK Liberal Democrats have appointed the pro-Israel lobby as ‘probation officers and educators’. They will judge if David Ward is ‘salvageable’ and lay down precise language rules.
A big fuss blew up last week when British MP George Galloway, invited to Oxford University to debate the motion "Israel should withdraw immediately from the West Bank", walked out of the chamber when he heard that the student opposing the motion was an Israeli.
A few weeks ago YouGov, with the European Parliament in mind and using two different methods, put support for UKIP at between 17% and 19%. So the Conservatives are under pressure while the LibDems (on a measly 8%) are set to lose badly.
A Liberal Democrat MP in the UK, David Ward, is in hot water for his "use of language" in condemning Israelis for atrocities against the Palestinians while the horrors of their own suffering at the hands of the Nazis were still fresh in their memory.
Williams’s role as a figure of unity in the worldwide Anglican Communion, which is represented in over 130 countries, meant that he was in a position to bring the needs and voices of those fighting poverty, disease and the effects of conflict, to the attention of national and international policy makers and donor agencies.
Earlier this week, in a sham show of ‘get tough’ diplomacy, UK foreign minister Alistair Burt announced that the Israeli ambassador had been formally summoned to the Foreign Office following Israel’s decisions to build 3,000 new housing units in occupied East Jerusalem and the West Bank, unfreeze planning in the area known as E1 and withhold tax revenues from the Palestinian Authority.
Promise not to prosecute Israeli war criminals, not to go for full UN membership, not to seek justice but submit to rigged talks, and we’ll support you.
Alistair Burt is the UK Foreign Office minister in charge of Middle East affairs. He is also a former officer of the Conservative Friends of Israel lobby group.
First, the courage and resilience of the Palestinians in Gaza has won the hearts and minds of the world. In Stephen Lendman’s words, “we’re all Gazans now”.
After yesterday’s dismal performance by the BBC’s flagship ‘Today’ news programme in quizzing the Israeli ambassador over the latest bloody assault on Gaza, this morning’s effort was a little better but still well short of what’s required in order to paint a truthful, balanced picture.
Recent scandals calling into question the news-handling skills of Britain’s national broadcaster don’t seem to have improved matters.
UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has worked himself into a lather over Iran's blocking of a Foreign Office website.
Who in their right mind would volunteer to be that trio’s cannon-fodder?
Britain’s foreign secretary William Hague is taking a long time to answer the sort of questions he must have mulled over before starting this country along another warmongering road to hell.
The good citizens of Bethlehem are cut off from their capital Jerusalem, only six miles away, the rest of the West Bank and the whole world.
The following report from Bethlehem University that academic staff had been attacked yet again, this time by Israeli squatters, reminds me of how the Israelis apparently resent the Palestinians’ fine education tradition.
Having disposed of the Murdoch menace - for the moment anyway - it's time for the British public to turn the spotlight on the other villains our craven politicians pay homage to.
