All western media and politicians are constantly saying that Israel has the right to defend itself… but the Palestinians do not have this right! Are there any Palestinians forces occupying Israel territory? Isn’t occupation an act of war? Double standard at its worst!
A British politician has been reported to the police under the terrorism act, after making ‘vile’ comments on Twitter about Israel’s offensive in Gaza.
David Ward, a Liberal Democrat MP, tweeted on Tuesday that he would fire rockets into Israel if he was a Palestinian.
“The big question is – if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? – probably yes,” he tweeted.
In a follow-up message, he wrote “”Ich bin ein #palestinian – the West must make up its mind – which side is it on?”
Conservative MP Nadhim Zahawi has written to Metropolitan Police, calling for an investigation into Mr Ward’s actions “as a matter of urgency.”
The remarks were immediately condemned by other MPs, including the Conservative party chairman Grant Shapps, who referred to it as an “incitement to violence” and “completely irresponsible.”
