Don’t Mention the War

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Jenny Tonge, Lib Dum peer, has been criticised again for upsetting the Israeli’s.

Tonge was sacked from the front benches for suggesting that the only difference between a Palestinian suicide bomber and an Israeli bomber pilot is that the Palestinian gives up their life and the Israeli goes to the bar for a beer afterwards.

Clearly suggesting that the Israeli’s are terrorists just like Palestinian militants is not acceptable to the Lib Dums, especially when they have a Liberal Democrats Friends of Israel.  I wonder how long Ms Tonge would last if she tried to set up a Liberal Democrats Friends of Palestine?

She is being denounced as an anti-semite naturally.  Online dictionaries are slow to catch up with this new definition of the word anti-semitism describing it as behaviour discriminating against Jews rather than the more common definition of criticising Israel or anyone Jewish.
