The Lib-Dems

Remember this when you watch the beatific Clegg tonight, discussing foreign policy.

Baroness Tonge is a Patron of the Palestinian Telegraph, an online "newspaper" which specialises in lies about Israel and vile antisemitism. The current issue of this sewer of a publication features a video of none other than David Duke, neo-Nazi and onetime grand wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. (Cherie Blair's sister Lauren Booth is also a Patron).

(Click on "PT Channel 3" on the right hand side of the screen and you will see it).

This is the woman of whom Lord Wallace last Sunday said "I would defend her rather over-emotional approach to the rights of the Palestinians". (Wallace is the LibDems' Deputy Leader in the Lords and their most senior foreign policy spokesman in that House and an Emeritus Professor of International Relations at LSE).

If any of tonight's TV Debate live audience is reading this, maybe they could ask Clegg if he agrees that being a Patron of a journal which indulges in the filthiest possible antisemitism is merely "overemotional".

Jonathan, is "The Lib-Dungs" really the best headline you could come up with? A six-year-old might find it amusing, but you're supposed to be an adult. Please grow up.

The Lib Dems are showing their true colours in denouncing Britain's "slavish" ties to the United States and in their attitude to Israel, as exemplified by Tonge and Wallace. Clegg is hopelessly and foolishly weak on the nuclear threat from the mad president of Iran.
Not only that - the Lib Dems would effectively end faith schools (Jewish schools among them) by making it impossible for such schools to control their admissions policies.
Every Jewish voter should steer clear of Clegg and Co.

Ah! A revealing quotation from Lord Wallace, as reported on the JC website this afternoon:
"On the question of the arms embargo, we are concerned about what is happening within Israel. I read the English version of Ha'aretz on a regular basis. I know that there are many within Israel who are actively concerned themselves and the question that is regularly put to us is how do we help to push Israel in the right direction?"

Ha'aretz lefties("useful idiots") are real favourites with CiF types who would demonise Israel ...

Jonathan is still desperately trying to smear Clegg it seems...

Why not wait and listen to what the man has to say, instead of trying to rile up everyone against him.

Oh yes, i forgot, it's because as far as you are concerned, your mind is already made up. How progressive you are Jonathan....

"Why not wait and listen to what the man has to say,"

We have already heard what the anti-Zionist porker has to say, and, let me assure you, that we already despise him quite thoroughly enough without any help from the estimable Jonathan Hoffman.

"Jonathan is still desperately trying to smear Clegg it seems"

Yeah, yeah, and Hitler lovers like Mosley, Mitford and Lloyd George were also smeared, I suppose.

Watch as another leader of the "Liberal" Party makes nice with the ultimate enemy of the Jewish people:

Don't you just love Lloyd George's Nazi salute? And you can just imagine what they were all laughing about.

I imagine he tried "Lib-Sh***" but the censor deep-sixed it.

Seems that the headline achieved the desired effect anyway - she has resigned from the Palestine Telegraph.

Yvetta..

You quote "[the Liberal Democrat Party] denouncing Britain's "slavish" ties to the United States"
As being a bad thing? Its clear for most to see that the US have brought Britain into 3 unnecessary wars (Iraq 1, Afghanistan, and Iraq 2), they are foreign lands far from the UK, and had not threatened the UK in any way.
It's becoming clear that people are fed up of fighting wars on behalf of America (and Israel), if these countries don't do diplomacy then let them (and not Britain) reap what they sow...
