Media 25: A hue and cry, twisting the truth, as MP for Bradford East dares to be honest

 

david wardIn a surprising report in the Huffington Post, David Ward’s comments were first said to liken the holocaust to the current atrocities carried out by Israel in Palestine – but his reported words later in the article show that he did not. He actually said:

“I have just returned from my second Holocaust day signing. We have had a big event in Bradford. Everybody talks about this awful, awful time we must never forget and always say we must learn lessons.

“I’ve been to Gaza and seen for myself what is, in effect, apartheid. I think it needs to be discussed.

“Having visited Auschwitz twice – once with my family and once with local schools – I am saddened that the Jews, who suffered unbelievable levels of persecution during the Holocaust, could within a few years of liberation from the death camps be inflicting atrocities on Palestinians in the new State of Israel and continue to do so on a daily basis in the West Bank and Gaza.”

Others who have visited this area confirm that Palestinian civilians suffer deprivation, humiliation and many have died in military strikes.

Even Gush Shalom, Israel’s peace movement, insists that Israel is committing war crimes on a daily basis

Why is there this hysterical reaction to the facts in Britain? Who orchestrates it?
