Since the terrorist attacks of july, all reports about the hunt for the bombers etc always seems to have another following it mentioning how Israel has lived under this menace for far longer. Every report about prevention is followed by how its prevented in Israel. Every report of political issues are followed about how Israel has similar issues, but has dealt with them.
Today, Bliar went out of his way to condemn suicide bombings in occupied Palestine.
Now is this because of the strong pro-Israel lobby, or because Britain has a strong empahy with Israel? Are they the same thing?
In my opinion this fighting to link it with what the Israeli's face is distasteful in the extreme. Political capital is being made out of a human tragedy. Besides Israel is not exactly peaceful with the Palestinians, so all relevance IMO is lost.
