MP’s own view deeply concerning

First published in Postbag

JOHN Glen’s View from the Commons in last week’s Journal was, if I may quote his term, deeply concerning.

Such an amazingly non-committal view is either a view dictated by his lords and masters or it must be the result of ignorance.

The ferocity of Israel’s attack on Gaza is not only “tragic”, it is a war crime and should be condemned as such.

To make the launching of rockets from Gaza an excuse from Israel, without mentioning Israel’s Iron Dome facility, which detonates any rocket before it can do any harm, seems strange.

Mr Glenn mentions UK funding for “those suffering on the ground” but does not point out that the UK government has declared itself staunchly in favour of Israel and its policies.

Also, that on July 18, the US Senate voted 100-0 in support of Israel’s attack on Gaza. We in the UK can only stand by as we have for the last 47 years and watch Israel slowly taking the whole of Palestine over.

Israel is making life for Christians, Muslims and Arabs intolerable in Palestine and East Jeruselem.

How can our government support such a scheme?

How can John Glenn be merely “deeply concerned” by the fact 1,300 people have been killed in Gaza in the last three weeks?

Thank you Margaret Duncan for pointing out the issues regarding the position in Gaza and the wishy washy response by our MP.

Also note that we were not allowed to comment on this topic in the Right Honourable MPs blog which therefore renders it a publicity and propaganda mouthpiece for the Tory party, nothing else. Whatever happened to democracy.

I would add Margaret that when 'defence' turns into ethnic cleansing, as in the case of the Israeli 'defence' force attacking Palestinian people, then it's time for the world to act. Remember what happened the last time the world allowed this ethnic cleansing to go on, Israel should.
