A very interesting difference between US media talking about an Israeli “incursion” in Gaza while British rightfully uses the term invasion.
The British Labour Party opposes Israel’s offensive in Gaza, party leader Ed Miliband has said.
The UK’s leader of the opposition , who has Jewish origins, told the Huffington Post that the ground invasion would likely help Hamas recruitment efforts and undermine Israel’s reputation in the international community.
The comment came as Miliband met President Obama in Washington on Monday, where he said the crisis was one of the many issues discussed.
“We oppose the Israeli incursion into Gaza,” Miliband told reporters.
He also expressed concerns about the number of civilian casualties, which currently has surpassed 600 since the invasion began last week, and urged Israel not to escalate the violence in Gaza.
